1721  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Blu-ray aims to oust DVDs within three years on: March 22, 2007, 12:13:13 AM
I'll just throw this in there, here is Toshibas response to Sony's crazy claims.

Right thar

Basically I have a biased considering I hate Sony overall. Anyway, HD-DVD isn't out of the race yet if you can even call it a race. The idea that Toshiba will undercut Sony in every way they can kind of proves they are in for the long haul. And that overall it is easier for many small indpendent manufacturers to switch to HD-DVD then it is to Blu-Ray so factor that in for the overall porn thing if anyone REALLY wants to see Porn in Hi-Def.

Also don't forget that whole 3X DVD thing or whatever it is that brings HD movies to a DVD that can be played in standard DVD players. Which is also....Toshibas. Also the multitude of dual players and multi format discs coming out that can do Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. Either way Toshiba has sold more stand alone players than Sony has, since not everyone in the world is buying a PS3 or the add-on for the 3shitty. There are people that like to watch movies that don't play games you know smile And at the moment The cheapest Blu-Ray player is I think 499 on Amazon since Sony is subsudizing amazon to cut prices in half. While Toshiba just dropped prices of all of it's players the cheapest one now being 399. If Sony drops the price of the players again, Toshiba will just go lower.

Anyway, feel free to disect all that smile.

I went out with an Indian friend of mine to a well respected Indian restaraunt in the McLean VA area.  My first time with Indian food.

I ordered the buttered chicken and it tasted good enough to eat the entire meal- I also quaffed a Kingfisher (Indian beer).  Went for a walk and shot the bull.

I roll up into bed a little after 10 and throughout the night I woke up with bile in the back of my throat. It burns! It burnses!  I spent the monring in the hotel purging the toxins if you will and never strayed far from the bathroom.

Embracing diversity is overrated!  I shoulda just had a burger.

Should of done that one first. Oh well

If they stuck with "The frakking Cylons could be on us the next day" and were fighting them off all the time it would of been great but they got into the whole human cylon prophecy and intership relations. I mean yeah those can be interesting, but don't make the entire show about that. I'm sure everyone was interested with the mini series and the 1st season because of the fighting and the suspense. Now they are saying "Oh who are the 5 cylons?" and I'm sure is just going "Why do I care who the 5 cylons are?"
1726  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: BSG - Should I keep watching? on: March 19, 2007, 09:34:59 PM
I'm getting so tired of Days of our Battlestar. I'd like a space fight to happen at some point. Can only take so many random camera shots of space and then just go back inside. For being a show set in space, I'm seeing a lack of fucking space, it's like just random moments in the show "Look we're still in space!" and back inside to whoever is now hating who of the week.

1737  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: "light" in the corners of LCDs on: February 27, 2007, 05:13:42 PM
It's not called backlight, it's usually just brightness. Which just increases or decreases the backlight. Just turn it down until it isn't annoying but it is usually brightest around the edges because it needs to reach the middle of the screen. One of the bad things about LCDs. The new LED LCDs coming out are supposed to be better about that.

Oh, for anyone that wants a spiffy picture, here is one that I resized that I thought looked cool. If you resize down to 1024 or 1280 or whatever I suggest just changing the canvas size instead of actually resizing the picture if you want I can do it for you.

Hey baby wake up from your a sleep
We have arrived onto the future
And the whole world is become....

Elektronik, Supersonik,
Supersonik, Elektronik,

Hey baby ride with me away,
We doesn't have much time,
My blue jeans is tight,
So onto my love rocket, climb,
Inside tank of fuel is not fuel, but love,
Above us, there is nothing above,
but the stars, above

All systems gone!
Prepare for downcount!

5....4....3....1! Off blast!

Fly away, my space rocket,
You no need put money in my pocket
The door is closed I just lock it,
(Ha) I put my (Ha) port plug in your socket (Ha Ha Ha)

The sonic sky is bright like fire
You and me gets higher and higher
Cut communication wire
Only thing can stop us is flat tire

Ha, Ha, Ha Ha Ha Ha

Hey love crusaider
I want to be your space invader
For you I will decend the deepest moon crater
I is more stronger than Darth Vapour
Obey me I is your new dictator
For you is Venus, I am Mars
With you I is more richer than all the tzars
Make a wishes on a shooting stars
Then for you I will play on my cosmic guitars!

Ladies and Gentlemen
Fasten your beltseats
We has commenced our decent
I trust you enjoy this flight
As much as you enjoy this accent

Now back on Earth its time for downsplash
Into sea of eternal glory my spaceship crash
People have arrived for cheer me from near and far
And as I float I open door and shout
"I am worlds biggest, washed-up superstar!"

(Supersonik, Elektronik)

As for sure as the sun rises in the west
Of all the seas and all the boats I am the bestest
come, let me put ring of Jupiter on your finger
Then like a smell around you I will forever linger
Ok, is time for end, no more will I sang
Let me take you back in time,
I want for you to experience big bang

Long live space race
Long live, Molvania

For everyone that wants to see this wonderful song that is also totally hilarioius.

That is what my Dad used. They aren't presentation projectors.

Basically it all comes down to price point, you'll get a kick ass TV for 1-2000 dollars, compared to a so-so projector. You get to 6-7000 you'll get a great projector that is comparable to a 10,000 dollar TV.

For the price range Ridah is looking at he's just better off getting a great TV compared to so-so projector. If he had more money than yeah a great projector is feasible.
1751  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Shopping for a new HDTV, need advice... thread redeemed! on: February 20, 2007, 03:08:41 AM
Projectors are only good if you have the money for an actual good projector.  A cheap projector will never look as good as a regular HDTV. They just can't reach the depth of colors and contrast ratio. I mean DLP is a 3 barrel projector while most projectors only have 1. If you want to get into the projetor area that could start to rival regular HDTVs you're talking 5-10,000 dollars for a good projector. That is a good Sony or Sharp projector.

Anyway that is my thing on projectors being a stagehand and having a Dad that developed a sports book using all Sony projectors.

Brunnette does not look good on her either. WHY? ASKMEN WHY?

Well I was really considering playing EVE till I read this story. I mean its ok for devs to play thier own game but to cheat? To give themselves motherships and blueprints and to ignore GM help requests and stuff. No thanks frown

Well I know what you mean but hopefully the devs finally do something smart about all of this.

I don't really know why I post in these though, nobody else likes trance music.

I like vocal trance a lot, although I like the sound more varied rather than the typical European female singing. A couple of recent trance/electronic albums I really liked were Hybrid - I Choose Noise and Tri-State - Above and Beyond.

You never get on MSN anymore Simon, or you delete/blocked me which is entirely possible. If you get on I can shoot you a link to that Armin Van Buuren CD that I'm sure you'll enjoy.

And thanks for the list depward, Covenent sounds pretty good smile. We Stand Alone is a great song.

Have you heard of PPK? They have some good songs you might like. Kind of old school though.

Add Assemblage 23 to that list also, my only thing is that it seems a lot of male vocals sound very 80's. Could be just me though heh.

I usually do straight trance most of the time. Sometimes go into the more vocal stuff. There are some hard songs that I like.
Name some bands.  Any of these sound familiar?

-VNV Nation
-In Strict Confidence
-Assemblage 23
-Apoptygma Berzerk
-Das Ich
-Covenant (you might really like them)
-Hanzel und Gretyl (very hard, just thought I'd throw that in there..)
-KMFDM (and the MDFMK release)

All of those are in the industrial/futurepop/electronica/techno sort of style of music.  Of course, Oakenfold / Sasha & Digweed / etc. are trancey.

I've heard of ATB and KMFDM the rest I haven't heard of. ATB has a lot of trancey songs.

I like a good portion of the main stream trance stuff:

Blank and Jones
Ferry Corsten
Paul Van Dyk
DJ GT and Project C(Vocal)
Agnelli and Nelson
Cosmic Gate
Junkie XL
John O'Callaghan
Marco V
Voodoo and Serano(Might like them, the song that was in the 1st blade I believe they did. Or they remixed it)
Sylver(Also vocal)

A problem with this genre though is you get a lot of one hit wonders, and there are so many good DJs and bands that it is difficult to find anyone. If you want more though I could keep listing people I like that is just some of the major ones I think with quite a few songs that I like.
