Re: Holy cow, I might be repped motherb!tches!!!

Strange how many people mess up "except" for "accept". That one never gets me, however I have been known to screw up "effect" for "affect". In any case, good luck!

It's a been a long time since I've seen it, but I remember liking "Point of No Return" almost as much as "Nikita".

Re: Pilot fees?

I agree with BattleDolphinZero. I think if-comes are standard once a studio gets on board. No paperwork when you're just developing with production companies since they are not the buyers.

Here's a fun story about Terence Winter posing as his own agent when he first moved to Hollywood. It's a long interview mostly about Boardwalk Empire. But about 2/3's into it he talks about posing...

Okay, I just did the F1 thing and confirmed the Bios version was indeed the number I posted above. Also the machine type is 2518BGU in case that matters. It's intermittent but happens every time...

They also used to have a "cheat" option if you didn't want your script to spill over to an extra page for instance. You could select: "cheat the page", "cheat the line" or "cheat the IRS". If you...

Re: So my laptop just died...
