Dear sirs,

While your trolling games may be fun and entertaining to you, they serve no purpose in the real world. May I suggest that you go outside and breath in some air. Maybe take in a little sunshine or gloom depending on where you live. Perhaps even meet a girl. For believe it or not, whilst you type away at your keyboard sliding deeper and deeper into irrelevance, there are those of us that are actually DOING something (or someone as the case may be). Leave the trolling to the professionals.

Thank You,

fredmosby (545378) | more than 10 years ago | (#7407464)

Designing a virtual actor takes quite a bit of time and money. Using virtual actors just means hiring a team of graphic artists instead of hiring an actor. Although it would give a director absolute control over the movie.

fredmosby (545378) | more than 10 years ago | (#7407668)

Depending on the actor. If you're not looking for big movie stars, hiring an actor would cost as much as hiring an artist. And the big name actors might get upset if you try to duplicate them using computers.

Re:The Screen Actor's Guild is on it's way out... (1)

Rude Turnip (49495) | more than 10 years ago | (#7407613)

It will take a team of graphic artists to accomplish it until the technology gets so advanced that digital actors (and their generation/rendering) will be an off-the-shelf commodity, like PC hardware and software.

THE FUTURE OF IT (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7407423)



Unfortunately, for most people in I.T., the days of getting overtime have ended. So, what do we now get in return for sacrificing our time? A small raise in our base pay? Sometimes. Extra bonus money? Not in this economy. Compensatory days off? Yes, but it never makes up for the time put in. A pat on the back? Maybe, but those "attaboys" are quickly forgotten. The only thing that information technology workers can count on getting in return for their efforts is insomnia, ruined weekends, angry families and stress-induced heart conditions.

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7407587)

Cry me a river. You know what our IT department does? NOTHING! Every time I go down there they're playing games or chatting around the water cooler.

When the last virus hit us were we prepared? Hell no. Did IT even send email saying there WAS a virus? Hell no. Did they ever even acknowledge that there was a problem? Nope. So them who patched all of engineering's servers and workstations? I did the lab and the rest of them did their own systems. Where was IT? Still don't know.

This is a real company people, I'm not making this stuff up. Our IT department is about 10 people and they don't do the work of 1.

As I write this I'm waiting for IT to deliver me my new laptop that has been downstairs in a box FOR 4 WEEKS! How hard is it to carry a box up a flight of stairs? Every time I ask for an estimate they avoid the question and blow me off.

If I had my way I'd fire every single one of them. Every single IT person I've ever met in every company I've ever worked for has been lazy and clueless.

The IT "profession" is comprised of nothing more than a bunch of social rejects who fixed grandmas computer once and so now think they're owed the same benefits real engineers get.

Bullshit. I wouldn't pay an IT person more than minimum wage for the "work" they do.

All the complaining you do about working long hours and being understaffed and oh poor you... do you ever stop to wonder why your infrastructure is such a mess? Who set it up? Who supposedly maintains it? YOU DO! Why should the company pay you MORE money or hire MORE people to solve the problem that you created?

So don't come crying to me if you spent the last 3 quarters sitting on your ass playing UT and then a virus hits.

You made the bed, now sleep in it.

I know it sounds weird and there's already lots of comments about pimply-faced geeks who can't get dates with real women - but I think this is a good idea. It lets visual artists showcase their work, it draws mainstream recognition to video games, animated movies and related media and its harmless fun.

The show is going to be mostly a larf, there'll be some genuinely good art mixed in with some quadruple D-cupped Valkyrie farces and Jessica Rabbit-esque wannabes but all in all the really good art is the stuff that'll win. And as for the pimply faced geek who can't get a girl - what's wrong with a little harmless fantasy here and there? I had a girlfriend who was willing to dress up as Wonder Woman for me (hot damn, one of the best nights of my life) and would have done Supergirl if other factors had not intervened (I'll still get a girl to do that one day). Fantasies are harmless unless they start defining or overwhelming your sexuality.

If they televise this show, I'll watch it, if they don't, I'll download it - I'll have a few laughs, look at some beautiful artificial women and then wistfully wish for a holodeck. No harm done.

Oh, and I wouldn't mind seeing a slightly spruced up Kate Archer - rowr!

"They should not have taken part -- not even as extras or cameos -- in pornographic films, shows or plays nor have made statements ... in any way out of tune with the moral spirit of the competition," organizers said.

Well that sure limits the field.

Oh for $DEITY's sake.....

Why do they even care? Do they think that implictly allowing this really will hurt the competition?

So what's to stop someone from photoshopping the head of another entrant onto a naked body and publishing it on a website somewhere, in order to get her disqualified? When there are no "real" images of the contestants, what counts?

Do "digital doubles" count? They make them now most F/X movies.

Does that mean that all those Nude Raider pics disqualify Lara Croft?

All of the obvious answers aside... Maybe Grace wouldn't win the swim suite competition, but if any lady is Queen of the digital realm, it's surely her. http://ei.cs.vt.edu/~history/Hopper.Danis.html [vt.edu]

"I never had a girl before
With much of a figure
So excuse me if I start to play
With your digital display"

Personally I think that a Digital Miss World site is just going to be a 'one-handed computing' site.
