      Oh. My. God. How can someone not know Bruce Campbell?

      I know, we almost threw him out of the Studio but we opted for forgiveness. Paul has since learned Smiley

      I binged him and recognize his face.  I've definitely seen him in a few movies.  I've also added The Evil Dead to my Netflix queue so the next time Scott is on the show, we can grill each other on B movie trivia.

      I've been involved with the "777 copies of Windows 7" campaign in the Netherlands. And it's not like Scott imagined: everyone in Zevenhuizen (a town in the province of Groningen) that has a machine capable of running Win7, got his copy (a DVD) of Windows 7 Ultimate (actually they got two DVD's: a 32-bit and 64-bit copy)

       

      I myself even upgraded the machine of an inhabitant of this rather small but picturesque town from Vista to Win7. It was quite fun even!

       

      Needless to say I am Dutch and I have heard of Bruce Campbell, or Ashley "Ash" J. Williams as he's probably most famous for.

       

      Nice job on the show!

      777 campaing does not look very ethical to me.

       

      Come on guys, if product is great you don't have to be predators, people will buy it anyway. Don't turn into google monster.
