    Yeah I'm pretty sure a variation of that has been done already.

    I know there was one about the prequels. And I'm sure there was an original trilogy poll too.

  3. Not sure if this could be done, but how about some compound questions?

    For Instance : 1/2 D1 looks good and my TV size is 19, 27, 32, 40, 46, larger, and 1/2 D1 looks bad and my TV size is 19, 27, 32, 40, 46, larger

    Or Real-time encodes look good and my source is VHS, Sat, analog cable, digital cable, and Real-time encodes look bad and my source is VHS, Sat, analog cable, digital cable

    Or I like Xvid and usually encode Action, comedy, documentary, sports
    and Xvid sucks and usually encode Action, comedy, documentary, sports.

    Often the individual's answer to a poll question is strongly affected by another factor not mentioned in the poll, this tends to skew the results.

    I think such questions would yield some more valuable information, such as 1/2 D1 seems fine until you get over 32" TV, Real-time encode is fine for quality source, Xvid doesn't do sports well, etc. These are examples only.

    D'you think things are BETTER simply because they are newer ?
    Are dvdr's better just because they gotten to higher speeds ? Are dvd writers better quality simply because they are later editions ? Are movies better just because they are new ? Or, are things/quality getting worse because they are being made cheaper and tackier for more profit ?

    Sorry, I really had no clue they port it to windoze already
    ... but if they didn't, i can tell you already: Safari users consist of 3% to 4% of all users (same as MAC users percentage :P )

    edit:
    however this reminds of important option that i have left out:
    instead of "Other" it should be "TGPO browser"

    I was thinking of something like "how much time do you dedicate weekly to computer maintenance? i.e. running specific anti-vir, anti-adware, scanning disk, cleaning registry. How often do you defrag and format?

    There is a "Disable Smilies in this post" checkbox under the white text box, when you click on the post reply button. There is also an "Options" link on the left side to set this on for every post you make.

    What thoughts on digital photography vs traditional film ?

    Have gone digital, film is dead
    Still happy with traditional film, quality is still better
    Digital photography still not perfected
    Digital cameras too expensive
    Changed to digital cos cannot find film any more
    Not enough info on future trend/film availability and processing to make a decision
    Camera manufacturers are messing us about

  29. Poll:

    If there was one HD (BR) DVD instead of 2 seperate formats.

    1: I would already own it.
    2: Still be waiting
    3: Don't care
    Don't give in to DVD2ONE, that leads to the dark side.

    Poll:

    When in your opinion will Windows operating system be completely gone from mainstream home computing and replaced with something else?

    1. Soon, Vista is its last version

    2. Between 2010-2015 (after last Vista SP10)

    3. Maybe between 2015-2020 (there will be yet another past-Vista Windows OS)

    4. Eventually, but only way past Gates' death (2020+)

    5. Never (Microsoft will take over everything eventually)

    6. TGPO will take over Microsoft and create WinUnix for masses
