I once saw a system that puts a subdivision within Gen-Y in 1993 to take into account how warped the kids with no memory of the time before ubiquitous high-speed internet have turned out. I have a sister born in 1992 who’s totally fine, and my good friend’s little brother was born in 1994 and is a fucking weirdo, so I’ve seen it in stark relief and I think there’s something to that.

Yeah, it’s weird. I fall pretty squarely near the middle of the Millennial generation (which makes me filth) but I will always have more in common with someone born in 1982 than someone born in 1996, despite being the same distance in years away from me. Constant internet access changed kids, man.

As someone born in 1973, I now feel ancient.

Older than the Fink!!

You wanna talk about ancient, I was alive for the last moon landing. Take that, Millennials.

Agree with Frink on this one. At its core, PC is about not deliberately offending others. I think it is easily taken too far by its practitioners, perhaps to the point of ridiculousness, but I appreciate the idea behind it.

Do I need a certificate file to burn the bdmv folder in imgburn?

I had that question awhile back, I just added the Certificate Folder from 2.5
as it was empty anyhow, I think I was told it didn’t matter, but I wanted to be sure.
Either way it worked fine for the 2.6 AVCHD.

Edit: Gratzs Towne! You made alot of folks Happy! 😃

So if the folder was empty, I could just add an empty folder as long as it had the proper name?

Official Sluggo review:

I paid for my whole seat, but I only used the edge.

And while I wasn’t on the edge of my seat I can’t stop smiling while watching this film.

I realized I liked it when they killed of that major character and I thought “Yeah. That works” If a prequel quality film had tried it, I would have walked out.

Or so says a pal of mine who is an old timer here. He wants back in, but he can’t seem to get past the password reset. Instead, he gets this:

Which doesn’t worky.

Can he reactivate his old account with a new email? He doesn’t use his old one, he says.

How to get around the 3-episode prequel limit
Time

Voss Caltrez said:

I think part of the problem with the prequels is that three films was just not enough time to properly tell Anakin’s story.
But Lucas started off numbering the films with TESB, with roman numerals.

How could the prequels have consisted of more than three films without ruining the Episode system or confusing people?
I was thinking what if the first film was Episode 0 but that wouldn’t work for two reasons. First being roman numerals don’t have a zero, and second, it would be detrimental to marketing purposes. The second film would be called “Episode 1”, third film “Episode 2” and so on.

Any ideas?

I’d first make a film called The Republic: A Star Wars Story and move to Episode I after that.

And I don’t know why, but the idea of roman numerals not having a zero makes me laugh.
