  1. If you live in or around London (or in commutable distance whatsoever) I strongly urge you to join the new meetup group StreetPass London! It’s brought to you by the same team that run SonicLondon, 3DSBlessed, and is part of the national StreetPass UK network!. The group is open to all ages, and have our first meet-up, which will take place in a central location, coming up in a weekend in April! Here’s the link : https://www.facebook.com/groups/252053204964396/
  2. He appeared on the show, which sees experts carry out archaeological digs, from its inception in 1994 until 2011. The archaeologist also taught at a number of universities across the UK. Time Team's official Twitter account tweeted: "It is with a very heavy heart that we've been informed that our dear colleague Mick Aston has passed away. Our thoughts are with his family." Co-presenter Francis Pryor said on Twitter that another Time Team archaeologist had confirmed the death. He tweeted: "Have just spoken to Phil Harding. Sadly he confirmed that Mick Aston died last night. RIP dear friend." The exact circumstances of the death of Prof Aston, who was known on the show for his colourful jumpers and unruly hair, are not yet known. Prof Aston was born and raised in Oldbury, in the West Midlands, and lived in Somerset. 'Passionate believer' Prof Aston's biography on the Time Team website says he had been with the show "since day one". He appeared as the senior archaeologist in 16 series of the programme, in which specialists carry out an archaeological dig in the space of three days. "In fact he was partly responsible for its creation after telling Tim Taylor, series producer, that it would be possible to evaluate a site in only three days," it says. The website says he had worked in archaeology for more than 40 years and had a particular passion for anything medieval and monastic. "Mick had a childhood love of archaeology, despite his schools best attempts to dissuade him," it says. It adds that Prof Aston was a "passionate believer in communicating archaeology to the public". Prof Aston studied geography with a subsidiary in archaeology at Birmingham University. He joined the University of Bristol in 1979, organising and promoting lifelong learning and continuing education in archaeology. 'Dumbed down' From 1996 to 2004, he was professor of landscape archaeology at the university and later became emeritus professor in the same subject. The university says on its website that alongside Time Team, Prof Aston worked on a major research project that investigated the origins of the English village at Shapwick, Somerset, and researched monastic and landscape archaeology throughout Europe. In July 2012, he received a lifetime achievement award at the British Archaeological Awards, a showcase for the best in UK archaeology. Mark Horton, professor in archaeology at the university, said at the time that Prof Aston had made "the past accessible to all". Writing in the Western Daily Press in February 2012, Prof Aston explained his decision to quit Time Team in 2011, saying it was because Channel 4 had altered its format and the show had been "dumbed down". "There is a lot less archaeological content and a lot more pratting about. I was the archaeological consultant but they decided to get rid of half the archaeological team, without consulting me," he wrote. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23041568 Me and my family met him when Time Team was doing a dig in Cumbria years and years ago, and I avidly watched the show for many years. It's really sad to see such a great man go. R.I.P.
  3. ...and blaming us for it. Cross posted from the Mobius Forum. Story from the BBC. Is it just a coincidence that the Argentine government has been stepping up their tired old claim to those islands since we started drilling for oil there? It was a sad mistake of the current government to retire our only aircraft carriers before the Queen Elizabeth class ships are ready.
  4. This looks like another case of religious extremists taking the lives of the desperate and gullible. Only in Ameri-what? This is happening in the UK? idon'twanttoliveonthisplanetanymore.jpg http://news.sky.com/...rticle/16117269 People should go to jail for this shit.
  5. I was wondering if anyone that imported Sonic Generations Collector's Edition for PAL areas only to the states and has tried to play the xbox 360 version on a american 360 and was sucessful due to possible region locking? thanks!
