***//BUILDING EMPIRE\\: PAL & NTSC DVD - NEW EDITION NOW ONLINE! ***
Time
Completely agree with what none says - Lucas ain't gonna be happy to find after all the work he and his company have done to find a leaked version of the film before its hit the big screen.


If he thought that we were all tossers decimating his life work then I'm not sure we'd still be posting on this great platform now - let alone going after the lads who've provided such quality version of the oot on dvdr, it's edits and classy documentaries like yours, OCP's and Daveytodds.


Hey, m8 - MagnoliaFan even got to go to the Ranch - as long as we don't profit from LFL stuff, or cross the line as those people did in releasing Ep3 before it's cinema release date, we'll all be fine.

Buring AVI's to DVD - Sync issues!!!
Time
Hi m8 - at the time amazon didn't do a readily multiregional 350e - so mine did not come as multiregion, but I knew of a hack available from the superb www.dvdrhelp.com website - 15 seconds and a few button presses later it was done


Your will come as multiregional - as advertised on the blurb - if not the hack for it is here:-

worthwhile to add? no.

Though I did wear my lucky pants to try and help Liverpool win on Sunday - though it didn't help...



will now be testing more lucky pants in the coming games...



Seriously though, a week before I got hit by a car on a pedestrian crossing I had dreams that that I was walking everywhere in my old ice hockey goalie gear - which included crossing over the same pedestrian crossing I was run over at...

I got myself a Toshiba SD350E just before Xmas - multiregional and will play divx & mpeg - £70 delivered from amazon.co.uk, here:-

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0009IF1Z2/qid%3D1138121872/203-5921724-2026345

though I'm sure it can be found cheaper elsewhere or on ebay...

It's a pretty sleek machine, great picture, no noise from the player itself, alsways found Toshibas to be decent make - no problems with it at all - plays Lost & BSG no probs m8


Also has fancy words - hdmi, upscaling, co-axial outputs, component output, PAL progressive, etc - no idea what they do, but I suppose it's all good stuff

Should be interesting when Rosilin meets Gina - especially after repeatedly seeing Baltar with 'her' so many times on Caprica - be even more interesting if Roslin can for some strange reason now see Six hanginig around Baltar...

To be honest I thought this would a clip show (thought it turned out a bottle show instead) - suppose they need to regin in the budget after treating us with some pretty impressive battle scenes the past couple of episodes. Still plenty of intrigue and possibilities...

BSG
Time
For some of us over 30 () had good memories of the original BSG - and was part of our childhoods growing up, which is why some may have a little intrepidation when its announced that the US are doing a 'reimagining' of you start to be a little cynical - maybe a cheap cash-in on the name of BSG?...

that said as soon as I found out that Ron Moore was at the helm sone of this intrepidation melted away - this guy was superb on Trek - always pushing the boundaries of the franchise (much to the alleged chagrain of Berman and TIIC), asking questions of the viewer and often delivering uncomfortable and searching tv - gone were the days where villain of the week is outwitted by the captain through a human morale or technobabble in the final few mins - never to return again or see the consequences of his actions... (it is a shame Trek returned to this premise with VOY and some of ENT!)

Terrorism, faith, belief, racism, love, friendship, trust, betrayal, ideals - Trek staples which had become stale in it's delivery over the years was 're-invented' for DS9 (and now BSG)...


You know that BSG is going to be unpredictable in it's content and story when Moore wanted the finale of DS9 having the Federation LOSE the war vs the Dominion - which caused no end of problems as the suits at the time demanded a re-write for a happier ending at such short notice... BSG has been one helluva ride so far, but it's only just beginning - here's to 7 seasons (hopefully - at least) of quality thought provoking and entertaining tv

Once upon a time, in a nice little forest, there lived an orphaned bunny and an orphaned snake. By a surprising coincidence, both were blind from birth.

One day, the bunny was hopping through the forest, and the snake was slithering through the forest, when the bunny tripped over the snake and fell down. This, of course, knocked the snake about quite a bit.

"Oh, my," said the bunny, "I'm terribly sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you. I've been blind since birth, so, I can't see where I'm going. In fact, since I'm also an orphan, I don't even know what I am."

It's quite ok," replied the snake. "Actually, my story is as yours. I too have been blind since birth, and also never knew my mother. Tell you what, maybe I could slither all over you, and work out what you are so at least you'll have that going for you."

"Oh, that would be wonderful" replied the bunny. So the snake slithered all over the bunny, and said, "Well, you're covered with soft fur, you have really long ears, your nose twitches, and you have a soft cottony tail. I'd say that you must be a bunny rabbit."

"Oh, thank you, thank you," cried the bunny, in obvious excitement. The bunny suggested to the snake, "Maybe I could feel you all over with my paw, and help you the same way that you've helped me."

So the bunny felt the snake all over, and remarked, "Well, you're smooth and slippery, and you have a forked tongue, no backbone and no balls..... I'd say you must either be a team leader, supervisor or possibly someone in senior management."

hmmnn.. can only recommend watching the thing all the way through (or rather leaving it on play and returning every 15mins to see if the synch probs are on the downloaded file itself).

Other than that m8 - try www.dvdrhelp.com or the doom9.org forums - sorry m8.


When I used to have similar probs I updated everything - the standlone dvd player firmware, my dvdwriter frimware, the divx player codecs and updates, and let it connect to the internet everytime it wanted to (firewalls can be a bit picky with media players etc)


Cool pic sig btw

ok - so the Chuck Norris jokes were alright, but these are a LOT better...


23. That's the number of people Mr. T has pitied in the time it has taken you to read this sentence.

Mr. T doesn't obey the second law of thermodynamics. It obeys him.

Before Mr. T, the alphabet only had 25 letters.

Mr. T is allergic to doorknobs. That's why he can only kick through doors.

Mr. T's hair style is actually a complex array of antennas that can triangulate the exact location of any fool in the universe. His gold chains can then transmit pity to those coordinates.

The last time Mr. T went to McDonald's, Ronald McDonald greeted him. What occured next proved to be the most violent beating of a clown ever recorded in human history.

Mr. T was fired from the Psychic Friends Network for always predicting pain.

Despite popular belief, if there is a fool in the woods, and nobody is around to hear his jibba jabba, Mr. T is still able to pity him.

When the end of the world comes, it won't be referred to as "Judgment Day".
Rather, it shall be called "T-Day", when Mr. T ends the world by simultaneously pitying all six billion fools on this planet to death.

Mr. T made his van go twice the speed of light because he wanted to prove that quantum physics was a bunch of jibba jabba.

Originally the A-Team was named T-Team and consisted of Mr. T and six of his genetically engineered clones driving around in a van made of pure gold. Producers changed the format after every criminal known to man was killed in the pilot episode.

Mr. T rejoiced as President George W. Bush was elected to office, as the coming administration would assure that he would never run out of fools to pity.

When Mr. T cuts onions, it's the onions doing the crying.

The Manhattan Project really did not create the atom bomb, but instead put the pity Mr. T distributes, in a bottle and then dropped it on Japan.

When Dr. Bruce Banner gets angry, he turns into the Hulk. When the Hulk gets angry, he turns into Mr. T.

Mr. T took Mother Nature from behind. We refer to the event as the Big Bang.

If you were ever foolish enough to get into a fight with Mr. T, there would only be two hits: Mr. T hitting you, and you hitting the surface of the Sun.

Osama Bin Laden isn't hiding from the US, he's hiding from Mr. T

Mr. T invented cryogenics for the sole purpose of turning fools into Pity Pops, which he then sells to buy more gold chains.

Mr T defines love as the reluctance to murder. If you're still alive, it's because Mr T loves you.

Is the problem with sound sync on your disc being played on a standalone dvd player, or your pc's dvd player?

I'm not very technically minded but is it possible to upgrade the firmware in your standalone dvd player?

As your pc's divx player (or other media player) downloads updates/codecs to play files, the divx part of your standalone dvd player may not be up to date as your pc's - and therefore struggles to play them?

^ I know what you mean (I think )

Have downloaded and watched the first 10 episodes of season 2 and watched them back-to-back (pretty much anyways) - just could not contain the excitement and anticipation of the next episode, and then the next one, and then the next...!

However, have to say I've taken a lot more in just watching 1 or 2 episodes a week at the second time of viewing - I often find I've missed subtle plotlines and think about the decisions and consequences of the story a bit more.


Gotta love the torrents - come Saturday morning the dling will start and by the evening it'll be ready
10 episodes on one dvdr disc - all decent quality (divx) = sweetness
