Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song.

Quality beat and feel that

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

Captain_Danielsan said:

Hi there. Thanks to you I have aquired these awesome sets of iso files. I was wondering if you think there would be any interest in making the sets smaller in file size. Just the three main 50gb discs obviously. I’m talking about a complete copy/ shrink down to bd-25 size. Ive done this with Star Wars already and am about to try Empire, using a program called BD rebuilder. Because I didn’t want to fork out for more expensive 50gb blu rays. The quality imo is no different. Ive played the 50gb iso file mounted with daemon tools alongside my newly burned 25gb version on my blu Ray player and I honestly cant tell any difference in HD quality or audio.

I want to give something back to the community here and I dont do film restoration but I am pretty good at video encoding so I had this idea. I have a paid for Mega account which I would upload the files to for everyone here to use. Obviously only if enough people show an interest. Mainly I had this idea because some of us dont have great internet so the prospect of downloading 75gb instead of 150 is a little less daunting and people could still get these sweet sets with the exact same motion menus and features etc. Anyway what do you think? Would Any of you here be interested in a lite version of the njvc set?

Cool idea.

Perhaps if you decide to do this (or make the 3 current 25gb iso files available) you should maybe ask Harmy and njvc if it is ok with them beforehand? - and you may wish to talk with solkap for any ideas, suggestions or help etc?

Either way - nice one, and good luck 😃

The USA didn’t qualify either


It went down to the 2nd half of the final round of qualifying games - USA were in a qualifiying position and looking good at half-time - then Mexico and Costa Rica surrendered their leads in the 2nd half - and the USA slid down the Group Table as they lost to Trinidad & Tobago - missing out on the World Cup by 1 point.

Shame as the MLS is doing well - and grassroots / coaching apart - the future was/is looking bright for US soccer.

Rumour is that you’ll be soon hosting another World Cup again in 2026/2030…

General Star Wars Questions

I thought they’d have some sort of safety switch on them too? - y’know, just in case one of these things accidentally gets brushed or touched and the Jedi loses his leg or something…

Do they have a safety switch?

Oh my, that picture is hilarious. Obi-Wan just had to be thinking that Luke was a complete idiot.

It was that pic or this one…

Italy fail to quality for the 2018 World Cup - after losing 1-0 to Sweden over their 2 legged play-off.

Other big footballing nations who haven’t qualified are Netherlands, Ghana, Chile, Cameroon, Nigeria.

The USA didn’t qualify either - edged out by Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama in their group. (Honduras are in playoff vs Australia)

Show off your Star Wars Collection (This is the place..let's see it already)

a couple of pics from my new(ish) USB frames etc…

^ the text may be a little too big for the frame - though there’ll only be a very small usb drive resting on the lower ledge of the frame.


^ the bobble-heads are quite good for resting a usb drive on the stand too.

The other frames, cases and boxes are usually dotted around the house - much to the missus’ delight 😉

BTW on the manga. I have only readed the half of the first manga. I know some of you have strong feelings about that, so if you feel like you need to call the police, I guess that’s an assumed risk on my part.

Paja, no worries on thread at all mate - it is always good to have a discussion on manga.

I hope the conversation goes well.

4K restoration on Star Wars

Careful, saying stuff like that out in the open about a “new” membet might get you a ban from the Thought Police around here these days.

(Also, I’m not sure if it’s Jedi Master Skywalker, greenlanternslight, or both, but at least one of them is definitely JMOW.)
