] ] Thanks Donna
] If you are on Windows 95 it is really easy to save as wallpaper -- just right click on the picture and select SAVE AS WALLPAPER. You wouldn't really want it as a screen saver unless you are paging through several photos. Purpose of a screen saver is to keep the same pixels from being used all of the time (as in leaving one picture up all of the time).
] Don't know how to create a wallpaper in Windows 3.1.
Thanks Anne I have Windows 3.1

I could tell you were deleting the other day -- I'd select a post and it wouldn't be found on the server. I'd refresh to get the updated listing. There are so many posts lately I've been trying to log on before work as well as in the evening. I'm trying to figure out why I'm buying a satelite dish when I don't seem to have time to watch tv. I love all of the various threads of thought that we seem to get into.

] Is Darcy's first name ever mentioned in P&P2? I know it is in the book,
To avoid writing I started a search for "Fitzwilliam Darcy" and found this. I had not remembered that Mrs Gardiner had some complicity in the forming of Lizzy's opinion.

I was wondering what everyone thought of Jeremy Northam (Mr. Knightley in the new "Emma") and how he compared to Colin Firth. (I personally think Colin is much better, but I was wondering what other people thought.
Also, I wished to discuss the sequel to P&P, "Presumption," by Julia Barrett. I recently read it and think it stinks! But I would like other people's opinion.

] ] Do you think he's blowing it? What do others think?
] ] --Paula
] Blowing his chance for what? Fame and notoriety? Paparazzi and freaked out fans following you everywhere? Complete loss of privacy and personal life? Fame ain't necessarily all it's cracked up to be. If, indeed, he is seriously seeking to avoid all this, he is likely to have a happier personal life than many others in his profession.
] Joan, too
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in possession of good looks , talent and a prime television role must be in want of superstardom. Alas the case is not so for Colin Firth, the star of the BBC's most successful period drama, Pride and Prejudice
This is the beginning of the new Daily Express article about Colin at FoF site. It's a three-part article, the link below is part one. Talk to you all later ... I have to go back and finish up the article.

How do you 'include' a file (html or txt) in the comments?
The only way that I have found is to copy the html into a txt, open the txt file and 'copy' to the clipboard and then 'paste' into here. There must be an easier way but I haven't figured it out yet.
(I'm used to mainframe, get/put/copy commands)

] ] ] ] ] I just received my copy of The Making of Pride and Prejudice yesterday. I was shocked to see a picture of the the actress who portrayed Lizzie. She is really blonde and fair. There are also pictures of the other actors, and many of them look extremely different. I think Colin Firth looks much better as Darcy than in other pictues I have seen of him.
] ] ] ]
] ] ] ] I think CF looks best as Darcy because it is the only role where he wasn't forced to cut his hair too short and wear a ridiculous mustache. We'll see what they do to him in "The English Patient."
] ] ]
] ] ] _______
] ] ] He looks very, very cute in Hostages too - with that curly hair. In fact I think looks closest to his real-life image in that movie. I sure hope he'll never try that mustache bit again !
] ] ] Zimei
] ] What's the lowdown on "Hostages"? I've never seen it but I've heard the name thrown about.
] It's a 1993 made-for-cable movie about the five-year hostage crisis in Lebanon. Colin plays one of the hostage - the young british reporter John McCarthy. Not the greatest movie, but memorable performance by CF, with Some cutest TV news reporting I've ever seen at the beginning of the movie. It should be available in most decent-sized video stores.

Please don't stone me, or ban me from the list, but I think that Jeremy Northam is empirically better looking than Colin Firth, and I love Mr. Knightly and Jeremy's portrayal, but the depth, the range, the subtlety that Colin brings to Darcy, blows Jeremy out of the water, and although I love Mr. Knightly, I am in love with Darcy- no contest. As someone said earlier "You sir, are no Mr. Darcy!"

] Don't forget about MAURICE. And for the person who could not remember who played MAURICE, it was James Wilby. Please, Please honestly I tell you it is a great movie and book.
Laura, you are just desparate for us to watch this film! Well, I suppose that I shall have to take the word of a P&P2 Family member that I must see it and go find me a copy to rent! ;-)

Cutting and pasting is the way. Later HTML standards allow for files to be uploaded into web forms. I don't know about you, but I like the idea that this is mostly all text based and can be read with about any graphical browser -- even the version 1's.

Don't you think credit for the depth should be shared by Firth with Davies and everyone responsible for the production who "got it" like we do? Also please say more about why your feelings for the Darcy character are so much more intimate.

Ann2, your drawing helped me put a lot of things into perspective. The room looks so different (shot from different angles) in every scene that I was getting confused as to where everything belonged! Thank you so much. What a lot of time and work you put into this. I assure you, your efforts do not go unappreciated.

] Having recently seen the film version of "Emma" how do you think the "The Maggot" dance in it compares with the one in P&P2? The "E" version was slightly faster and no dialogue was spoken by Emma or Mr Knightly, or none that I observed at any rate. Of course we all know how the P&P2 version proceeded. I think in many ways it was a much better version of the dance.
Oh I agree, Ian. It was interesting to see how differently the same dance was performed. P&P was much more stately and stylized. I like how both films chose the same music for such pivotal dance scenes. There did seem to be more joy in the Emma dance, especially after Emma sees that Mr.Knightly has rescued her Harriet- the music and the dance just really takes off after that.

So what is the difference between screen saver and wall paper, screen saver moves and wall paper doesn't? Does the wall paper kick in instead of a screen saver? Will it hurt my screen to have it on for long periods without movement?
Thanks for the Win95 instructions- that's what I have and I'll try it, but I just want to be clear about where this is going and when it will show up on my screen.
Cheryl (computer neophyte- hate the word newbie!)

Here he is. I see what you did. You put the *.htm file in the image field. It has to be the whole URL for just the picture file, which will end in *.gif or *.jpg.
Laura, this is deja vu all over again. I put this up for you just before the ARWAV virtview. I still feel the same way. He is such a cutie, but too young for me. I have got too old to feel the same way about a youngster like this as I can about a Firth or Sand -- or recently even Grant. The more crow's feet he gets the more my speed he seems.
