    Battlestar Galactica on - WOW!

    I think the camerawork gets better in later episodes. Either that or I'm just getting used to it. Either way, it used to bother me, now it doesn't anymore. Whether that's due to changes in me or the actual camerawork I don't know. ;)

    Battlestar Galactica on - WOW!

    Striker, indeed the series has not been cancelled, like I said, even more episodes have been ordered already. So far 11 episodes have shown on SkyOne in the UK, I think they'll air episode 1 on Sci-Fi either today or tomorrow. If you watched the first hour of the miniseries, and *only* the...

    Battlestar Galactica on - WOW!

    It's strange to see the people over here disliking the BSG miniseries so much... I thought it was pretty good, and overall (besides on this forum) I get the feeling that that's the general concensus. I'm also watching the series (downloaded, I can't go around waiting for Dutch terrestrial TV...

    Kilrathi Saga

    I just put a "wanted" on nl.markt.comp, and managed to find someone willing to sell it to me for only 75 guilders (around €35). I never bothered telling him what the running rate was on eBay... :D

    Wing Commander UK DVD

    In Australia a judge has ruled that region encoded DVDs are anti-competitive, and it is therefore legal to create and sell (and for a consumer, buy) region-free DVD players. I don't know if it's legal or not in the Netherlands, but I do know that nobody seems to care. Most standalone DVD...

    Wing Commander UK DVD

    Doubling every 24th frame will produce a noticable stutter. As for more advanced methods... I doubt it would be worth the added time it takes to do that. It would also most certainly introduce shadowframes (frames that are a combination of two other frames). I can't predict how bad it will be...

    Wing Commander UK DVD

    Speeding it up is unfortunately the only way to convert a 24fps master (film/telecine) to 25fps (PAL). The speed difference itself isn't that bad, but it also means the sound needs to be pitch-corrected (because it's played too fast, so it would sound too high if left alone), which aversely...

    Wing Commander UK DVD

    Wow, I haven't posted here in ages... Is this one really anamorphic. I got the German release, which is not anamorphic but otherwise very high quality. If this UK release is really a good anamorphic transfer, I might consider buying it. If only so I don't have to turn on the German subtitles...

    Weird e-mail

    Of course it's spam, and of course I didn't click the link or replied to the mail. I get spam all the time. The weird part about this one is how they got my real e-mail address associated with the name Christopher Blair.

    Weird e-mail

    Today I received the following e-mail: While it is possible that I've registered somewhere using the name Christopher Blair (although that is not my usual 'Fake ID'), I would most certainly not have used my real e-mail address for it. Very very weird.

    "The server is too busy..."

    It can be much of a hassle indeed. While not being able to access the board at times is not that much a problem, I have already lost posts over this. I'd go to post something, and when I press submit I get 'Server is too busy'. So I press back in the hope of saving my post in a textfile but I...

    Favorite tactics

    I've played DOS WC3 with the keyboard so I don't know of any problems there. I've played the KS WC3 with Keyboard, Mouse and mostly my USB SideWinder Force Feedback 2, and it works just fine.

    Is WC too arcade like?

    Not that you'd be able to see that, because the light of the accelerated battle first has to catch you.

    Warning: Controversial Issue! You have been warned...

    You know, if I was in the air force and someone told me I was the real life Maniac I'd take it as an insult. :p

    WC too glossy like Star Trek?

    Wow, and here I thought this thread couldn't get any further off topic. :rolleyes:

    Very cool! Spirit looks good (but then again, she always does...) :D

    Is WC too arcade like?

    Acceleration should of course get less as you get faster since your mass increases with m' = m/(sqrt(1-(v^2/c^2))) so you need more and more force to achieve the same acceleration. Now that would be realism...
