Awesome Star Wars art (pic heavy!!)

some familiar pics - some not so… (for me anyway)

Well, have you been tested mate? 😉

I have - however a most unfortunate accident left the sanity tester falling down a flight of stairs and somehow managing to dislodge the fire axe from it securing (behind some safety glass) and then falling onto it backwards with some force. Also seems a near-by fire extinguisher somehow fell onto the sanity tester’s head - repeatedly.

Apparently we’ll never know the results as a fire engulfed the testers’ car with all his files in - around the same time as the events above taking place.
 

A most unfortunate set of circumstances, I’m sure you agree…

Cheers, Frink - for clarity I wasn’t sure if you (and chyron) were referring to the mods here - or to your position as a mod on a different site.

The ‘hahahaha’ left it somewhat unclear - which is why we ask for some more information / reasons / opinions in posts instead of just the ‘hahahaha’ type aspect.

 

Just waiting for chyron’s response.

 

Edit - this was posted before Frink’s ‘insane’ post above.

I’m proud to have been consistently confrontational.

And yet they thought you sane enough to make you a mod over at FE apparently.

That’s uncomfortably close to a personal attack.

It is not. Mods are not generally supposed to be known for being confrontational.

Hahahahaha.

Would you both like to explain what you are referring to in your respective posts?

Once they added in the patch that brought the “windows” back to Windows, 8 was perfectly fine.

ClassicShell was really useful for Windows 8 (having a Start Button and familiar UI Menu system / easy access to desktop screen etc) - and not at all embarrassing for those at Microsoft who said that it couldn’t be done at the time…

(I think the lad behind ClassicShell knocked it out days after the Windows 8 release too 😃)

The UK right-wing media’s calendar for next year…

International but when is it International Men’s day?

I don’t understand were the words “Women’s day” left out?

What are Halal Easter Eggs?

Insufficient Diana morning? Does that mean the right wing complains that people don’t mourn Diana enough, or that the right wingers themselves don’t mourn Diana enough?

Poppy rage?

Yes mate, they mistakenly left off the ‘Women’s Day’ from the text.

Halal eggs? http://metro.co.uk/2017/04/16/cadbury-easter-eggs-and-four-other-things-that-are-shockingly-halal-6577659/

Insufficient Diana mourning - The Express and The Mail both love a good Diana story (putting a pic of her on the front page sells copies apparently - and they use her a lot, stories, scoops, interviews with former staff and friends, conspiracy theories, diaries, trinkets etc). It’s like a ‘moral’ (financial) crusade to keep a quite one-eyed memory of her alive.

Poppy rage - people not wearing the poppy. For some reason ‘everyone’ has to wear a poppy - for the last few years it’s become an annual debate - those that do vs don’t and why, plus the intricacies of what the poppy represents (and doesn’t). Some more info here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remembrance_poppy
 

The right wing media laps this stuff up - cheap and easy to write, appeals to many ‘patriots’ and ‘man in the street’ types (apparently), plus a chance to denigrate it’s opponents or critics. It’s a circle of never ending complaining from them.
 

Some more info here…

LOL. You could see that ban coming a mile away.

Sees Win 8.1 quoted, sees Vista quoted = must post…

I think this is that kind of British humor that Americans just don’t get. (I know I don’t get it)

I’d disagree with that a bit mate - in that some people may find that kind of humour funny, or ‘get it’, wherever they are from. Likewise, some people - wherever they are from - may not.

Some great points in there from Shaun (with a good accent there 😃)

For some reason I don’t think he rates Cinemasins too highly…

I don’t know how you got that impression, I mean yes, one video is called “CinemaSins is Wrong About Everything”, but are you really sure?

Ah, I went straight to the ‘CinemaSins is Still Wrong About Everything’ 😉

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW

…VHS transfer of Despecialized…

(Stunned silence)

And here I was thinking I’d be labeled an infidel and blasphemer for being nostalgic about DVDs in the “NJVC sets on Mega” thread.

😃

Many people still use dvd mate - especially us oldies, tight gits, and a few young retro-ists 😃

Long live betamax!

 

Possessed said:

Why would you transfer despecialized to vhs lmao if you want star wars on VHS there are a multitude of official options available

Maybe just to try it mate? To see if we could still do it? To raise awareness of Despecialized? (Despecialized 1 - 0 Special Editions 😉), to have someone sit down and go ‘hey cool, someone put Despecialized onto VHS’ etc, or just for the craic 😃

Imagine one of those cool retro VHS tape covers - but now a purpose Despecialized cover? (put a ‘not for sale - available free online’ retro style sticker on it etc)

NJVC Custom Bluray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions now available on Mega
Time

solkap said:

This may sound like heresy to some, but I’d be interested in seeing if there could be a DVD-DL version of the NJVC sets. I have the blu-rays (obviously) but I think some people might be surprised just how many individuals don’t own blu-ray players and have no interest in buying them.

NJVC and Harmy may feel that this would compromise the quality of the sets too much. There would certainly be quality loss, so perhaps its not the best idea.

But on the other hand, I see no harm in a member trying their hand at tinkering. If the end product doesn’t turn out well, nobody has to download it.

Same here - there are also some mp4 type Despecialized versions (non-njvc version) up on myspleen for those who wish to store them on usb drives - or watch via streaming like plex or Chromecast etc - and Harmy gave his permission for that.

I think there are a fair few differing Despecialized versions, formats, sizes, and quality - all floating around the public torrent sites too (though likely without Harmy’s permission).
