|Long Description||''The House That Jack Built'' is one of Diana Rigg's finest hours, and a rare chance to see the usually nonplussed Mrs.Â Peel totally plussed. She is in for ''the fright of [her] life'' when she is held prisoner in a house rigged by a vengeful techno-obsessed madman bent on driving her insane. Rooms that move and labyrinthian mazes are mere prologue to ''the exhibition dedicated to the late Emma Peel.'' This DVD also contains the three black-and-white episodes that wrapped up the fourth season of The Avengers in high style. ''A Sense of History'' is not gradeÂ A, but John Steed (Patrick Macnee) and Mrs.Â Peel's investigation of deadly goings-on at a university does earn extra credit for Mrs.Â Peel's Robin Hood costume and her pointed exchange with Steed, who is dressed as the Sheriff of Nottingham. His sword, she observes, ''looks a bit droopy.'' ''Wait until it's challenged,'' he replies. In the macabre ''How to Succeed... At Murder,'' 11--make that 12--prominent businessmen have been dispatched by a band of secretarial assassins. Who is pulling the strings? Her name is Henrietta, a real ''doll.'' Her battle cry: ''To bring men to heel and put woman at the pinnacle of power. Ruination to all men!'' The DVD concludes with the bonus episode ''Honey for the Prince,'' which one Avengers -appreciation Web site ranks among the topÂ 20 episodes of the Mrs.Â Peel era. The provocative prologue shows Steed and Mrs.Â Peel actually skipping arm in arm back to Steed's place. It is all ''Quite Fantastic,'' which is the name of a company that creates and satisfies their customers' ''most repressed desires.'' Speaking of fantasies, Mrs.Â Peel, ''sold'' to a young prince targeted for assassination, appears in garb that would make Barbara Eden's Jeannie blush. --Donald Liebenson|

The maxicode barcode is identified by the circular bulls-eye in the center and a matrix of circular dots that make up the data. Unlike many of the other 2D barcodes, this symbology uses a hexagonal grid rather than bars or squares.
These symbols are always printed as a 1 inch square often found on shipping packages and can store around 93 characters. If more data is needed, up to 8 codes can be chained together and scanned one after the next. The bulls-eye helps the scanner identify the pattern even when packages are streaming by at speed.
There are several modes that these symbols can use. UPS uses mode 2 and 3 on their packages.
- Mode 0 - Obsolete mode superseded by modes 2 and 3. (Older printers will produce Mode 0 if the firmware is outdated. Mode 0 MaxiCodes can be visually determined by examining the two horizontal hexagons in the upper right-hand corner. They will be white if the Mode is 0. For all other modes, they are black.)
- Mode 1 - Obsolete mode superseded by mode 4.
- Mode 2 - Formatted data containing a structured Carrier Message with a numeric postal code. (Primary use is US domestic destinations.)
- Mode 3 - Formatted data containing a structured Carrier Message with an alphanumeric postal code. (Primary use is international destinations.)
- Mode 4 - Unformatted data with Standard Error Correction.
- Mode 5 - Unformatted data with Enhanced Error Correction.
- Mode 6 - Used for programming hardware devices.
