I have tried to buy this but is now out of print.  Anyone have any idea where I could possibly get hold of a copy of this resource pack?

  2. Hi Rus

     That’s the very thing I came across and on reading that I thought the resource pack was exactly what I was looking for at the moment for a specific piece of work.  I believe it is dated 2003 yet apparently is now out of print.  I wondered why something which was reviewed very positively has so quickly gone out of print and is now unavailable?

  3. The cult of the “New and Improved”….

    In answer to your question as to why something so positively reviewed should be so soon out of print;

    We live in the Googlescein age; a time where every year things must be upgraded or replaced with a "new, improved" alternative.  Something that was reviewed positively in 2003 will have gone through several iterations of development, or we will have decided that the environment has changed so much that it was no longer relevant.

    Everyone is seeking to be "cutting edge", we all want the "next big thing".  We are all caught in a world where Red Queen Syndrome rules; where, if we aren’t in a headlong rush to "move forward", we are in serious danger of being left behind.

    For example:

    I asked my son what the fanfare was that he was using as a ringtone on his mobile phone……"it is the theme from Final Fantasy 7", he replied!


    Can’t you tell that I’m approaching 50


  4. It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts!

    I know the feeling Rus of being left behind in the wake of youth!  But as you know – new isn’t necessarily ‘improved’ and tried and tested works well most of the time, (I will stop there with the cliches as I am now sounding like a grumpy old woman!)  Anyway, it is rather annoying when there is alot of not so good stuff out there that you stumble across a resource pack that appears ideal and then can’t get a hold of it!  (Grumpy Old Woman mode coming on again there so I’m off!!!)
