Anybody else tired of winning?

Trump predicted this:

“We’re going to win so much. You’re going to get tired of winning. you’re going to say, ‘Please Mr. President, I have a headache. Please, don’t win so much. This is getting terrible.’ And I’m going to say, ‘No, we have to make America great again.’ You’re gonna say, ‘Please.’ I said, ‘Nope, nope. We’re gonna keep winning.’

Could you not just slightly lower the bit rate for rotj to make room? And for mpg2 I highly, HIGHLY recommend hcenc. It’s free and gives fantastic results. And it has an option to where you just set max bitrate and desired file size and it will calculate the avg bit rate automatically and get very close to the filesize you desire. It works great and I even use it for blu ray encoding because it’s so easy and its encodes are as good as h264 at high bit rates. (Obviously at lower bit rates h264 will always win but at high rates I don’t see much difference)

What do you think might be a reasonable average bitrate for acceptable quality?

Well I primarily work with hd so I’m not sure. My best bet would be to pick a decent max bitrate then tell it how big you want the file to be and let it figure out the average for you.

Dvd has spec’s you know. Limit to Max of 9.8 Mbps. I suggest puggo just author this the same as the others, that way we get a consistent set 😎

I hope he, and the two officers that witnessed this and didn’t say anything, get punished to the fullest extent of the law.

The NPR article i read on this was a little more fair to the officers, i mean, it is possible that they did find it, but then restaged it with the body cam on. (doubtful though).

in any case, this is certainly true: “Officers should not be able to decide when to turn the cameras on and off […]” Levi said.

I already know how those posts turn out.

only if you have one of those fancy time machines with extra memory retention. otherwise you travel back in time, but don’t remember anything from the future. basically, time travel is real, we all already traveled back in time, that is why we are the only sentient beings around. but we all made a huge mistake and traveled economy - so no memory retention. we don’t even know that we are from the future.

OMG! **Spoiler alert: Most homeless people on the street are time travelers from the future. And the sad irony is, all of them went back and prevented major catastrophes before their memory faded.

haha

I’d argue it’s more fun, but less relevant.

and i’d agree. we can end it here though. it was fun while it lasted.

Our only hope is to have ESB:R released so that we can experience the one thing we traveled back in time to experience, and make all of this time travel business worthwhile.

If you need to B*tch about something <strong>other than originaltrilogy.com</strong>... This is the place

Last day of vacation was today, the plan was to receive shipment of new washer and dryer to replace ancient and broken units, and use my day off to get them installed.

Well, i used my day off, and received them, but they are not installed. The damn dryer is being a bitch to get the duct hooked up to, the connection coming off the dryer is tapered and i can’t seem to get my clamp tight enough to grab it. God, and that was going to be the easy one.

Washer still isn’t fully unpacked, and i was going to run a new circuit to power it instead of sharing the basement outlets, only to find that i can’t put a tandem breaker in my box, because it doesn’t support them, even though a previous electrician did (he must have modified the breaker to fit it in, WTF?). i don’t feel like doing that, since the whole reason to run this was to make sure that if something went wrong electrically, the manufacturer couldn’t try to blame it on the wiring. Of course, i had already installed the outlet and run all the wire… sheesh. ripped it all down again. thankfully it is an unfinished basement so it isn’t too hard to run wire, or remove it.

now i get to do it all again tomorrow after a day back at work.

Star Wars Despecialized Editions - Custom Bluray Set

Out of interest, where in the movie was the issue? Could you give an exact time and/or description of what takes place in the movie (or lines of dialogue spoken) when this happens?

I haven’t burned mine to Bluray yet, but hope to do so soon. (I hoped to check on my PC, but haven’t managed to get any of NJVC’s iso files to play fully in VLC. The extras and menus work fine, but when clicking “Play Film” from the main menu, the film has no picture/sound and the timer progresses at approx. x30 speed.)

Bluto

I burned the movies on Optical Quantum 50/25GB BD’s at the slowest speed with full verification. Nero had no problems at all. I don’t remember exactly when, but it was during the Endor scenes between 1hr & 1hr 30mins. I’m going to check out the disc on my PC and see if I can encounter the problem again. If not successful, I’ll have to check it out again on my Samsung C6500 bluray player.

I’ll let you guys know once I can recreate the problem & pinpoint the timestamp.

Jedit: Couldn’t recreate the problem on my PC, but was able to recreate it on my bluray player. I was a little off with the timestamp, the freezing occurred at exactly 1:37:58. After a 1-2 seconds, the movie skips ahead to 1:39:20. I replayed that timestamp numerous times, even stopping the player & replaying it again, caused it to freeze again.

I downloaded the ROTJ NJVC - HD MENU 50gb version. Has anyone else downloaded this ISO, and has experienced a freezing at 1:37:58 ?

I wonder if that is perhaps a high bitrate scene (or an upcoming scene is high bitrate). basically, something that is maxing out your players hardware, draining buffers, filling buffers, etc, but that your PC can handle better. on the other hand, your PC might have a better laser in its player. so many variables. sorry, all i can offer is musings right now, i am on vacation.

I think there was a movie where Sherlock Holmes was a woman. Can’t recall if it was period set or modern times. Might have been a tv movie or a pilot though.

Well, the show Elementary did this with DR Watson, I presume this is what you are remembering?

When I first saw this show I thought it was being done for the same reasons that warbler seems to think the DR who thing is. But since then I picked this show up again and really enjoy it.
