Anybody going to this convention on Saturday?  It's only little but close by for me so I am going.

I'd love to meet up with anyone else who is going.

Mark Strickson and Paul Darrow will be guests, amongst others.

Marius the Giraffe. Copenhagen Zoo.

war bonnet
I don't often get outraged by things on the news but I cannot believe what Copenhagen Zoo did to their 18 month old giraffe yesterday.  (I may write horrendous things in my fic - but that is fiction not reality).

Apparently Marius the giraffe's genes were too common so he could not be allowed to breed. But instead of sorting this out in a humane way, Copenhagen Zoo behaved appallingly (in my opinion).

The giraffe was offered a home in an all male herd in Yorkshire, England, and at other zoos, and a private buyer offered £410,000 for him. However Copenhagen Zoo rejected all the offers and instead chose to shoot him, skin and dissect him in front of crowds of visitors, including children, and then publicly feed him to the lions.

How a place that is supposed to be a sanctuary for animals can behave in this way is incomprehensible. They could have prevented his parents breeding but did not. Presumably the attraction of a baby giraffe at the zoo is a real money spinner. But once his cuteness had worn off he was surplus to requirements.

Rejecting the offers to rehome Marius and kill him instead is horrendous in its own right, but to then make a public spectacle out of his death is just thumbing their nose at the people who were trying to save the giraffe.

I have signed the petition to fire the man who did this. If you want to sign the links are here.

I bought and downloaded my first ever itunes purchase today. The movie Little Favour with Benedict Cumberbatch. HD format,

I had to install itunes first and it pointed me to the 64 version to match my laptop. I did that and then downloaded the file. The file downloaded OK, as far as I know, and I have found it on my computer.

But it wont play. It comes up with an option to click play, which I do, but nothing happens. If I try to play it from windows media player I get the following message.

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

I would have thought itunes would make their downloads compatible with this or even include a player in their installation. I have no clue what type of file it is or what codec was used. There isn't a file extension in the name.

As a complete hopeless case with computers I am stuck. And frustrated at almost being able to watch Benedict's film.

Any computer savvy person out there who knows about itunes?
