He devises a daring plan to defeat the invaders, by uploading a computer virus (Sune might be able to explain how it worked) to bring down not only the mothership but also all the other alien spaceships. The unlikely team of ace fighter pilot, Hiller, and boffin David Levinson (Goldblum) sit side by side in the little craft and set out on a trip that becomes a buddy movie in miniature leading to the conclusion we have all been waiting for.

Sure thats easy to explain - the aliens obviously (despite being physically and mentally totally different) created computer hardware with exactly the basic instructions as one of our companies computers (which one our hero brilliantly deduced). When they were done with that they created the same alphabet as us, the same programming languages as ours, the same operating systems as ours (with the same bugs and weaknesses) and then they openend a communication channel to us using a protocol known to us. Thus it was quite easy for our hero to write a virus and just upload it.

Damn that movie sucked :)

I propose everyone to support my initiative and post here information about birthdays, including checker players, members of their families and players who is not with us today, but had a birthday at the same day.

I just find hidden :lol: somewhere an interesting message: Congratulations to: BillyBoy (31)

I think this is very interesting fact and I congratulate Billy getting into new zone "earlier 30's" ! I wish him to be successful in all his businesses and accomplish his goals this year !

I just got back from a visit with my friend Earl Hangen, who turned 81 years young today.....
And, even though I know he will not see this, (today anyway)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EARL !!! :blob2: :blob3: :blob4: :blob5: :blob7: :blob8:
