  1. Buy this!

    Wondering why Amazon doesn’t have a single international page per item.

    @franklywatson You’d think so. I assume it’s just way too tricky, and only trickier as the place gets bigger and bigger.

    @franklywatson Yeah, the separate affiliate links would only add to the difficulties.

    I wrote about Amazon’s lack of a single (international) page per product: gyford.com/phil/writing/2… (Following a Twitter discussion a while back)

    @tomafro Well, there are only ever four main things.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @secretbean Yeah, but what about THE four main ones?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @cuica Why would you need another three? There are only four main films.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @secretbean They might be great, but are they the four main ones?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    The second good list of the four main movies, from @topfife: Seven Samurai, Citizen Kane, Psycho & Star Wars.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    The two best lists so far of the four main movies. First, from @undermanager: Gone With The Wind, A Bridge Too Far, Star Wars, Local Hero.

    @topfife Ha ha, this is why I said “movies” in the original question. Forgot second time round.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @alicebartlett You too. (Besides, ‘Pepys: Origins’ is definitely right up there.)

    @tomstuart Nice try in sucking up to the questioner!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @peterme Have you just arrived from the past? You don’t have to wear that top hat any more, by the way!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    No correct answer to “What are the four main films?” yet. Most popular answer: Police Academies 1-4.

    @blech @bobbiejohnson @iamdanw @blaine @tomtaylor Twirl might be better in many ways, but it’s not more of a main bar than Flake. Surely.

    @cityofsound @tobybarnes My tactic while getting rid of mags has generally been to keep oldest and most recent. Haven’t regretted it yet.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @Zoonie @maryloosemore Thanks, but work to do, and all that…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @revdancatt Are they on anywhere at the moment?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    What are the four main movies?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @maryloosemore Envious. And C4 aren’t streaming it online!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @jamesweiner @iamdanw @blaine @tomtaylor Really? Not the Twix? It’s a different world in Midtown, obviously.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @iamdanw @blaine @tomtaylor @jamesweiner Having said that. No Dairy Milk? WTF? That’s as main a chocolate bar as it gets!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @iamdanw @blaine @tomtaylor @jamesweiner Twirl?! Bounty?! And much as I love a Double Decker, I’m with James on the four main ones.

    @Techmeetups How do I unsubscribe from your email newsletters, which I never signed up for? I’ve tried asking twice via email, but no joy.

    @timoarnall Ooh nice, but spendy. I’m excited by this month’s new cameras, having put off buying one for too long…
