[DVD] Radiohead – Meeting People Is Easy [DVD 1998]

I was bought this DVD a couple of years back by my girlfriend, and I loved it. After uploading TMGLMOAT a few days back, I thought this needed to go online.

Here is an extract from Wikipedia about this film
———————–
Meeting People Is Easy takes place during the promotion of Radiohead’s 1997 release OK Computer, containing a collage of video clips, sound bites, and dialogue going behind the scenes with the band on their world tour, showing the eventual burn-out of the group as the world tour progresses. The inaugural show of the OK Computer tour began on 22 May 1997 in Barcelona, Spain. Their final performance, 104 concerts later, was in New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

I downloaded this from eMule at around 1.3gb, then put it through the same SuperResizer I did with the Reading 1994 video (as my DVD is currently in Canada)

You can buy this from waste for £13 at the moment:

Microsoft unveils Office 365 In India

Microsoft unveils Office 365 In India

Microsoft eyes on-demand software market with cloud version of its Office offerings

Microsoft unveils Office 365 In IndiaMicrosoft has announced the launch of Office 365 in India to offer easy access to cost effective business productivity solutions on the cloud. This novel service will enable the enterprises to use Microsoft Office- including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, email and other software on a pay-per-use model.

Office 365 is built ground up with an updated platform and new infrastructure investments and is backed by the industry’s most rigorous financially-backed SLA, and will be available in different ‘packages’ in 40 countries depending on the size and need of the customer organization. These plans start for as little as $2 for basic e-mail to $27 per user per month, allowing SMEs and enterprise customers to access Microsoft’s popular e-mail, collaboration, conferencing and productivity capabilities online. This includes the most advanced versions of Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Lync Online as well as an option to get the full power of Office Professional Plus desktop software, along with Office Web Apps.

The Office 365 plan for Small Businesses is optimized for organizations with 25 users or less and includes Office Web Apps, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Lync Online at approximately $6 per user per month.

This launch is part of Microsoft’s comprehensive Cloud Services Strategy. Almost all of Microsoft’s on premise enterprise solutions are already on the cloud, and the launch of Office 365 takes it to the next level. Microsoft’s customers can choose to deploy either cloud based or on premise solutions, or both, depending on their need, and in turn experience the flexibility and cost control needed to drive higher business productivity.

SaaS or “on-demand software,” is a model in which software and its associated data are hosted centrally (typically in the cloud), and accessed using a web browser over the Internet. Cloud computing facilitates sharing of technological resources, software and digital information. Since this technology is internet-based, data and solutions can be accessed from anywhere using a browser. It is this market Microsoft is eyeing with the new product.

In the coming months, Microsoft Office 365 will also provide significant opportunities to a huge ecosystem of partners that will sell, customise and provide consulting, migration and managed services for Microsoft Online Services to Indian small and medium businesses.

Microsoft Office 365 provides all of the familiar enterprise class productivity solutions on a flexible usage and payment model, delivering streamlined communication with high availability, comprehensive security and simplified IT management. Customers who have already started using the services are realizing savings from reduced hardware, software and operational costs.

Fred Astaire And Rita Hayworth — “I’m Old Fashioned”

The famous dance under moonlight from their last pairing on screen: “You Were Never Lovelier” in 1942.

Jerome Kern wrote the classic song “I’m Old Fashioned”, with a lyric by Johnny Mercer, for this film.

Looks crazy to hear Astaire (in any role) say “I am strictly from corn!”, but he (the actor) really was born in Omaha!

……..

Wiki reports: “Although Hayworth had a fine voice, Harry Cohn insisted on her singing being dubbed throughout by Nan Wynn…..Dance director was Val Raset, the one and only time he collaborated with Astaire, and his choreographic input into the film is unclear”

Hayworth was born “in Brooklyn….she was trained as a dancer from childhood.”

…….

Fred Astaire, in his autobiography “Steps In Time” wrote:

My first meeting with Rita was in a rehearsal hall at Columbia Studios. It was upstairs in one of the buildings and, as I recall, the stairway led directly into the large rehearsal room.

As I came up the last few steps I gave a hurried glance around, expecting to see Rita, as I had been told she would be there. I didn’t see her and asked one of the assistants, “Isn’t Miss Hayworth going to be here this morning?” he pointed to a remote corner of the room, “Why, yes–she’s been here for some time.”

There she was. Oh yes–a beautiful sight.

Bob Alton, choreographer on the picture, brought her over and introduced us. I said, “I’m an old freind of your father’s.”

“Yes, I know,” murmured Rita.

I then asked how tall she was as I stood alongside of her….As we stood there, both in flat heels, I was easily three inches taller and I told her I hoped she didn’t have to wear very high heels with me. She quickly answered, “Oh, no, I don’t have to.”

We then danced around the mirrored room in impromptu ballroom fashion, as I wanted to get an idea of how we looked together.

I kept thinking how extraordinary it was to find myself about to play opposite my freind Eduardo Cansino’s lovely daughter, and I told her so. She laughed.

Rita danced with trained perfection and individuality. She, of course, knew through experience what this dancing business was all about. That was apparent the moment I started working with her.

Microsoft Office 365 Preview: Hello Lync, Goodbye Live Meeting

Microsoft’s Office 365, now set for rollout on June 28, will swap out Office Communications Online and Live Meeting for the new Lync Online, while also improving the online editions of Exchange and PowerPoint, an analyst said this week, during a preview of a new cloudbased office suite aimed at tailorability to businesses of all sizes.

“Lync Online will be about collaboration,” contended Wes Miller, research VP for server applications at Directions on Microsoft, during a Webcast held just a few days before the impending launch.

Lync Online will supply instant messaging (IM), user presence, and online meetings, complete with audio, video, and screen sharing. Yet unlike Live Meeting, a component of Office Communications that supported online meetings among up to 2500 participants, Lync online will only allow about 250 people to collaborate at a time. Live Meeting will now start to fade into history.

Microsoft might have found out through customers that most companies don’t hold online meetings with over 250 people, anyway, Miller theorized. “Beyond that, it becomes a Webcast, not a meeting,” he noted.

Now in beta since April, Office 365 — a replacement for Microsoft’s earlier Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) — will offer some definite advantages over the “on premises” Lync, Exchange, and PowerPoint, which require businesses to run their own dedicated servers, according to the analyst.

The benefits will include “almost instant deployment of applications vs. on-premises,” along with “per user/per month predictable spend” and “no long-term investment/depreciation of hardware.”

For end users, Office 365 will “build upon familiar applications and experiences,” according to Miller. Companies can generally expect “lower user retaining and migration costs than with Google Apps.”

On the other hand, he admitted, businesses deeply concerned about keeping sensitive data inhouse — or about meeting regulatory requirements — might not be comfortable about stepping to Office 365 or any cloud-based office environment.

‘Lync is probably the biggest gap”

Moreover, the feature sets of the Microsoft-hosted editions aren’t yet completely on par with their on-premises cousins, according to Miller. “Lync is probably the biggest gap,” he illustrated.

In contrast to the Lync on-premise server previously released by Microsoft, Lync Online will not include the integrated built-in telephony support that Microsoft’s Bill Gates foresees as ridding businesses of the need for PBXes and those pesky old-fashioned desktop phones that are still limited to voice calling only.

Instead, Office 365 isn’t anticipated to add this server-based telephony support until the end of this year, or even later — and even then, only in its most pricey package, which will be known as E4.

Through this server-based telephony, the “on-premises” Lync lets users collaborate through both voice and data from smartphones such as Apple iPhones, as well as from specially outfitted desktop phones.

Right at the outset, Lync Online will allow for both voice- and data-based collaboration, but only on a “PC-to-PC” basis, according to Miller. Yet the analyst also speculated that Microsoft might ultimately build in some new VoiP (voice over Internet protocol) capabilities obtained through its recent Skype acquisition

Web Apps vs. Office 2010 Pro Plus

Additional Office 365 packages will include E1, a direct replacement for BPOS; E2, an edition that will add Web apps to BPOS; and E3, which rolls in Micorosft Office 2010, plus some ECAL features.

Microsoft will also offer a “Small Business” (P1) package, along with two packages, K1 and K2, for so-called “Kiosk Workers.” Priced at $4 per user/per month, the K1 package will support Exchange/SharePoint Web access. At $10, K2 adds Office Web apps.

The Small Business (P1) hosted services, on the other hand, include Lync, Exchange, and SharePoint — although only through “a very simple Web site” — along with Microsoft Office Web Apps.

Priced at $6 per user/per month, the P1 level services are theoretically designed for up to 50 users. However, according to Miller, even a very small business might opt for “E” instead of “P1” services under certain circumstances. (In case you’re wondering, the “E” in Microsoft’s packaging scenarios stands for “Enterprise.”)

“To my knowledge, the minimum number of licenses required for E is 1. So the principal thing that would preclude a small business from going with an E package is most likely the price, Miller wrote, in an e-mail to TechTarget/TechnologyGuide.

As examples of very small businesses that might opt for “E” rather than “P1,” Miller cited companies that need “features only available in E,” such as Office 2010 Pro Plus, and those that are either “right on the edge” of P1’s 50-user limit or that expect to surpass it soon.

Microsoft’s Office Web Apps provide some but not all of the same functionality as Office Pro Plus, Essentially, the Web Apps are for “document viewing and simple editing/creation,” he elaborated. The Excel Web App can’t run macros, add charts, or open Excel 2003 .xls files. Also, the Web Apps will work online only.

Miller added that, in his experience, the Web Apps work well with Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) browsers, but sometimes glitchily with Google’s Chrome browser.

Microsoft, however, will also support some earlier editions of Office for Windows desktop applications — along with Office 2007, 2008 and 2011 for Mac — for connectivity to Office 365, he said.

‘Licensing story can get complicated’

Additionally, although “E” services at all levels will be available in entirely Microsoft-hosted scenarios, Miller suggested that the services will often be deployed through shared hosting, with companies augmenting Microsoft’s cloud with software running on their own servers.

“None of the packages ‘require’ an on-premises server — but generally life gets easier, especially as an organization grows, if on-premises servers are there,” he told me.

Pricing for the E packages will vary considerably, according to Miller. “The licensing story for Office 365 can get rather complicated rather quickly,” the analyst observed.

Also during the preview, Miller outlined the main strengths and weaknesses of the Exchange Online and SharePoint components of Office 365.

The new Exchange Online, for example, provides a 25 GB mailbox with Outlook and Outlook Web App access, mobile e-mail for most devices, and shared calendars, contacts, and tasks. Voicemail has been added for unified messaging (UM). On the other hand, support is absent for unlimited message size, managed folders, or public folders.

SharePoint Online offers external connectivity for partners and off-premises workers. Support is available for Microsoft Access, InfoPath Forms, and Visio Services. Microsoft has now added document-level permissions. However, the new online edition doesn’t support PowerPivot or other business intelligence (BI) features, and it doesn’t provide search integration with Exchange, FAST, or Windows 7 search, the analyst said.

Dennis The Constitutional Peasant

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a 1975 film about King Arthur and his knights who embark on a low-budget search for the Grail, encountering many very silly obstacles.

Dennis The Constitutional Peasant

Dennis: What I object to is you automatically treatin’ me like an inferior.
Arthur: Well, I am king.
Dennis: Oh, king, eh? Very nice. And how’d you get that, then? By exploiting the workers! By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society! If there’s ever going to be any progress–
Dennis: We’re an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as sort-of-executive officer for the week–
Arthur: Yes.
Dennis: But all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting–
Arthur: Yes, I see.
Dennis: By a simple majority, in the case of purely internal affairs–
Arthur: [getting annoyed] Be quiet.
Dennis: But by a two thirds majority, in the case of more major–
Arthur: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
Dennis’ Mother: Order, eh? Who does he think he is?
Arthur: I am your king!
Dennis’ Mother: Well I didn’t vote for you.
Arthur: You don’t vote for kings!
Dennis’ Mother: Well how’d you become king, then?
Arthur: The Lady of the Lake,… [Angel chorus begins singing in background] her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [Angel chorus ends] That is why I am your king!
Dennis: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
Arthur: Be quiet!
Dennis: You can’t expect to wield supreme power just ’cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
Arthur: Shut up!
Dennis: I mean, if I went ’round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away!
Arthur: Shut up; will you SHUT UP?! [Grabs Dennis and shakes him]
Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!
Arthur: SHUT UP!
Dennis: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I’m being repressed!!
Arthur: BLOODY PEASANT! releases Dennis and walks away as other peasents come to see what’s going on]
Dennis: Oh, what a giveaway. Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That’s what I’m all about! Did you see him repressing me? You saw it, didn’t you?
