Colin Firth immortalized with giant statue

A large fiberglass statue modeled after Colin Firth‘s portrayal of Pride and Prejudice‘s Mr. Darcy was installed this week in Serpentine Lake in London’s Hyde Park. The 12-foot tall statue of the 52-year-old Oscar-winning actor is based on a famous scene from the 1995 Jane Austen BBC-TV adaptation, in which Mr. Darcy goes for an impromptu swim at his estate and then emerges from the water. The seductive scene was voted the most memorable moment in a British TV drama by U.K. television viewers. The purpose of the statue is to promote Drama, a new British television channel. The statue will be on display in various locations before its final (and permanent) stop at Lyme Park, Cheshire, the site where the scene was filmed. ~Alfonso Espina

    Comment enregistrer une station radio sur mon disque dur via une connection de mon ampli hifi sur la carte son de mon PC ? Autrement dit, comment connecter mon ampli hifi sur la carte son de mon ordinateur ? pour ce qui est de la connection sur la carte son, j’ai pas vraiment le choix, elle est tr猫s basique : je connecte sur l’entr茅e micro. Mais je ne sais pas sur quelle sortie de mon ampli me brancher. pourriez vous me conseiller ? Pour l’enregistrement lui m锚me, aucun probl猫me, c’est vraiment la connectique au niveau de l’ampli qui me pose probl猫me. Au besoin, dois je passer par ma console de mixage ?
