In 2004, former Monty Python actor Eric Idle penned Spamalot, a musical adaptation of the famous film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It’s a clever and ridiculously successful production that went on to win a Tony Award for Best Musical. Now, because time is a flat circle and Hollywood is an ouroboros, Deadline reports that Fox is planning to adapt the adapted musical as yet another film. Spamalot largely follows the plot of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, throwing in a number of other references from the group’s other films and sketch comedy. It follows King Arthur on his quest to unite England by going off in search of the legendary Holy Grail in 932 AD. Along the way, he gathers a motley team of knights, faces off against rude French soldiers armed with bovine catapults, braves bloodthirsty bunny rabbits and inscrutable bridge guards, and soft-shoes through a number of catchy musical numbers. The musical streamlines the film’s story a bit and throws in more than … [Read more...] about Fox is turning Monty Python’s Spamalot into a movie, for some reason?
Often when a new programming language is introduced, there is a debate which starts amongst some of the genius minds in the industry wherein the language is compared with the one already spreading its roots. A kind of buzz often spreads in the IT industry and the new one is often compared on every aspect may it then be features, syntax or core cpu and memory aspects including GC time and all, with the existing one of its kind. Many examples of such cases can be picked up and investigated from past including the debate between Java and C#, C++ etc. One of such case which drew a significant amount of attention was the debate between two languages which came out one after the other in short span i.e. Python and Perl. Whereas Python was invented initially as a successor to ABC language merely as a “hobby” programming project (which would attract Unix/C hackers) for the author who named it after the series of his biggest star Monty Python.

Best Android games introduction It's been ten years since Android was first announced and in that time we've seen hundreds of thousands of games hit the Google Play Store, but obviously not all of them are high quality, and with so many available it can be tricky to make sure you're putting your cash in the right place.Some titles are expensive and nothing more than just poor ports of a console game.

This is part of CNET's "It's Complicated" series about the role technology plays in our relationships. These days, you can see your crush's face in real time on the other side of the globe via FaceTime. You can flick through thousands of photos to pick your next date on Tinder. And you can google photos of that guy your roommate wants to set you up with -- and in some cases, search databases to see if he has DUIs or parking tickets. Yet for all the new dating behavior modern technology has made possible, there are others it has killed off and sent to dating heaven. Here, we get nostalgic about six of them.Calling and hanging up Back in the day, shy Romeos and Juliets could call the objects of their affection just to hear their voices -- or the voices on their answering machines -- for one glorious moment.

Back in the '90s, when Webcams were hot and we used the World-Wide Web Worm as our preferred search engine, I worked for a tiny online village of Apple Mac users called eWorld. Apple dabbled in this easy-to use community between June 1994 and March 1996, and eWorld became my first full-time job in college. From 1995 to 1996, I worked as a Web editor for eWorld in an R&D division of Apple's Electronic Media Lab in Boulder, Colorado. I wrote reviews of websites for the InGuide section of eWorld, which covered topics such as entertainment, education, technology, news, sports, kids' content, lifestyle and gaming. I made sure users could find the best sites, which everyone would share with each other over email, and I did it all on a Power Macintosh 8100, a major improvement from the ancient IBM DOS-only computers I'd written on during my internship at the local paper. Back then, the Internet was just starting to pick up steam, and I couldn't wait to get into the eWorld office every … [Read more...] about My Apple gig: Helping ‘ePeople’ untangle the World Wide Web
