About two months ago, I entered bOUNTY in a contest and asked for coverage on it. Two months later, I finally got it in my inbox.

Unlike that other guy, this person GOT it. The advise was more in line with the vision I was trying to uphold and made more sense as a result. A funny thing I noticed though is he also thought my character Abigail was underdeveloped, but advised her to be more "vulnerable" which was EXACTLY the kind of thing I was trying to do with her. Not make her a "damsel in distress", vulnerable beneath her tough exterior.

But the reason I found it funny was cause three people think she's underdeveloped and three think she's fine the way she is, which makes it real conflicting. I think the character is fine but she does need a bit more spice cause her counterpart Conrad is more interesting. She needs to be able to stand on her own cause I want her to star in some episodes.

My style of writing seems a bit controversial too but I realize I don't explain the environment as well as I should. I have the whole visual look implanted in my head...but when I re-read it recently I found out I never really describe the environment the way I see it. Plus they're alot of sentence fragments which can get really annoying to read and disrupts flow. They also want me to get rid of the exclamation marks...not gonna do it. They're there for a reason and its to show how crazy and fast moving it'll be, removing them will make the thing boring. Same with getting rid if the narrative style, not gonna do it to make it more "industry friendly". Fuck that shit. This market is highly competitive and I want to stand out, plus that's just the way I write. It's my style.

Overall this is good stuff to take in for the next rewrite, which will improve the script dramatically.

I just played back the VHS footage I recorded on my HDTV. It's wonderfully shitty, except it's lacking color. I need to test the white balance and all the other features.

I also ordered a battery and another VHS tape for more tests. I'm also getting very favorable responses to one of the outlines I wrote, which happens to be the cheapest one. Still want more opinions though before making a final decision.

People I know that have a Nexus 7 have said pretty much nothing bad about it. I'd have thought the iPad 2 you have is still "probably" better though?

So I got myself a new laptop yesterday, the versions of Windows 8 I used before must have been altered, because the Windows 8 I got from the first-boot of the new ones is the biggest load of complete and utter shit I have ever used. I'm typing this on my trusty old one and I'm gonna use this old one to look up ways to make W8 less shit, also.

OK, with the above in mind, I've made some progress.

Only now, I actually literally am this close >___< to taking it back to the shop and getting my money back. How in the actual fucking hell was shite like this allowed to be released? It does NOTHING properly. Why the shit is it called "Windows" now anyway, since it's like they have done everything in their power to make everything a "Full screen app" now? This is the straw that broke the back TBH, being unable to minimize a window. There is NO FUCKING REASON for that ability to not fucking be there. Windows 8 was..."designed" by a fucking bunch of blind 6 year olds with learning difficulties.

^I have yet to meet anyone IRL who likes W8. It's a piece of shit. I have so much trouble with it since my mother has it and is constantly asking me to help her with it. To find anything (at least the admin features, settings etc) you literally have to use the search function. So tedious. And like you say, not having the ability to minimize is so bad. Worst OS UI in years.

When I got this PC a year ago I had a coupon to "upgrade" to Win8 for 15$. Gladly passed it up. Win7 is excellent IMO. Win9 will be good if the MS Win pattern holds up
