DRESDEN FILES 2-HOUR PILOT PRESERVATION
Time
According to Robert Wolfe the other version was 67 minutes so what you have in your Sci-Fi pile is what was produced. FYI the fx house that did the pilot was Sundog Films and the rest of the season's fx where done by Keyframe in case you're wondering of any inconsistencies; ie, they changed the set from the basement in SF to the one level office/apartment he's in now. Currently there is no news on a season two of the show as they don't know themselves. Perhaps by summer time we'll know.

DRESDEN FILES 2-HOUR PILOT PRESERVATION
Time
I was surprised to read this. I'm glad there are fans of the series here. I've been a fan of Jim's work since working (very briefly) on the pilot back in 2006. I don't have anything as it was just in the fx house doing preliminary tests at the time, but it got me into the books in a huge way. The new one White Night comes out in April so check it out.

As the the 107 min cut of Storm Front, I know from Jim Butcher's forum that producer Robert Hewlitt Wolfe stated Sci-Fi might be airing the movie down the road and there's a likely chance it'll be on DVD as a bonus. However a preservation is a great idea just in case.

Search for The Gimp. It's an open source graphics application (therefor free) that's similar to Photoshop. I haven't used it personally (as I have Photoshop) but it'll be a hell of a lot better for you than word. As to DVD templates, just create a new document, 3240 x 2175 pixels at 300 dpi. You spine is 170 pixels wide in the center of your created document. Hope that helps you a little. I'll check in again if you have any questions.

Video Game Thread

I've been thinking it over these past couple of days and decided to trade in my PS2 in hopes to get Wii in the new year. I've got an old 32" 4:3 and the PS2's graphics cut off significantly at the sides giving it a pincushion look that drive me absolutely nuts. I tried a Gamecube on the same TV with not such effect. Plus, there's no point getting a PS3 or 360 as they're best for HDTV's and I don't see myself getting one within the next couple of years. I think Nintendo's approach this generation's of consoles is experimentation in the way the game is played. I think they'll be the first to come out with the next console after this current generation because they probably designed and priced the system with that in mind that most households aren't going HD in the foreseeable future. Sorry, I'm going all over the place with my opinion here. I'm just hoping I'm choosing a console that'll give me an enjoyable gaming experience.
