My Stylish installation must be fucked up. I even tried to install it directly from within the plugin, still doesn't do anything. Sad

@BronzeTitan - bulb off as requested: https://i.imgur.com/1Zh9xR1.png I haven't changed the size of the logo at all, it's just scaled down by CSS, and converted to a transparant background logo.
avatar
LOL ... Who says the Shoutbox is not fun? (Can someone make it a FPS with mouse controller? Again, not volunteering. Smile )
avatar
"pfff" Copy that. "pfff" "pfff" Got eyes in the sky and boots on the ground. Tower is a null worry, over. "pfff"
avatar
@Jetrell Fo: *pfff * Negative that. Repeat, negative. *pfff * ... *pfff * Videogame are good for the psyche. *pfff * ... *pfff * Watch that sniper fire from the tower! *pfff * ... *pfff * Do you copy? *pfff * Big Grin
avatar
BTW, nice logo fit into the background(s). The big one looks good as the Main Entrance logo, but the smaller ones are nice for all the rest of the "sub-pages". Adjust the main logo to match, and I'd give that a double-thumbs-up!
avatar
How about a motion logo? A .SWF player. With the bulb off and a Monty Python finger that comes down and taps it on the top and it springs to light! And it lights up the 3-dimensional title letters! And music! Something cool! Some inspirational! With a repeat button ... for infinitely playing music! Not that I'm volunteering ... Smile
avatar
I just updated it with some improvements (namely I tweaked the logo graphic). I just tested it in both Chrome and FireFox. Maybe you installed the theme but the Stylish extension is disabled?
avatar
@Valeyard Good idea. Sadly I can't install it for some reason. When I click Install it says "Installed", but when I reload it offers the Install button again and this site still looks normal

For anyone who wants a smaller forum header I just made this: https://userstyles.org/styles/160165/sma...for-fanres

Pac Man Syndrome should probably be on the list too. Video games rot the brain ... maybe even make you go blind due to joystick addiction, lol.

Vinegar Syndrome gets my vote
avatar
"oxidation" should be on that list too ... (twitch twitch) ...
avatar
We could use a "bad words" list that members could vote on to add (or remove if future votes cause it's total to drop below 50%). Frankly, I'd vote-out "corrosion" ... (shudder) ...
avatar
I'm calling Dumbledore in on this one. Maybe he can create a list of places that should never be mentioned due to a selective lack of humor on their parts?

I can't stop watching these... https://youtu.be/DwxeE3jIt5A

I'm just going to leave this here... https://youtu.be/BdbX9FhRco8?t=22s

Why did my post get removed? I didn't say anything wrong about anything. It reminds me of a place that apparently can no longer be mentioned by only some of us I guess. Sad

Okay, okay ... such touchy people! I've been ordered to the front of the class & they won't let me write those naughty words even in my punishment ... https://s31.postimg.cc/69jc1l8cr/Bronze_...gy.com.jpg

hmm, just thinking ... will more "shouts" disappear ...
avatar
@poita - Should we just skip UHD and, instead, invest in the next GREAT format (downward compatible, of course)? Otherwise I'll have to over-book museum gigs just to pay the bills! Woo
avatar
So ... we are STILL acting like CRUMBS to the OT-agent PACMEN? -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8n_zloZwesk
avatar
I still have just few UHD BDs, and I assume, with price at the moment I will just buy some newer movies in 4K, if the movie seems interesting enough to pay about 75 to 150 percent more, compared to the BD...
avatar
Some 4K BD's are better. A Few Good Men and the first 2 Harry Potter films look better than the BD.
avatar
My problem with Braveheart is not the color depth, but the face paint of William Wallace...
avatar
There are some horrendous UHD releases, not many but some. Dredd, 3:10 to Yuma, Oblivion, all worse than the Bluray Edition.
avatar
When they are converted to 8bit, they usually look like the regular BD version with less clipped whites and some slight colour differences.
avatar
Be careful when looking at UHD caps. They never look right on a PC screen, and often look a lot better on a properly setup HDR UHD TV
avatar
avatar
I have not seen a single UHD title but from screen caps I am not sold at all they look quite washed out. http://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?a=1&x=466&...&i=10&go=1
avatar
holy s... I think I will pass on the Braveheart UHD BD: http://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?a=1&x=388&...0&i=6&go=1 check out the facepaint... O.O

On the darker side of entertainment, "the Superman curse" https://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/supe...o-12387108 has struck again http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/201...at-69.html
avatar
So the Die Hard 4K BD has a stereo mix in DTS-HD, but it appears to be a fold down of the 5.1, so the LD audio is still preferable. Image looks pretty good though, a definite upgrade from the old BD.
avatar
@BronzeTitan - my favourite scene in Jurassic World: https://i.imgur.com/hhUEJSe.jpg (SPOILER!) Big Grin
avatar
@Valeyard - Awww ... you should've warned about the spoilers! I didn't know about the evil green-screens. Sad
avatar
@poita - Aussie humor? Big Grin

Although Black Books is funnier: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X5oCV7hWgs

I'd really change my name if opening this business: http://stancrappfunerals.com.au

Yep, server maintenance
avatar
Is originaltrilogy.com down?
avatar
well, it's faNres and not faMres, after all! Happy
avatar
in google search I keep putting Famres and getting "Farmers" results silly but It happened a few times now
avatar
Oh, so they'll have the Legacy Edition there?

This is my new favourite thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6XERmXsP-U

Laserdiscs the size of Tractor wheels with UHD and Audio that will blow your ear drums
avatar
Ok But they must be better. No super8 film-fade (from that famous film company ... doh!) and perfect-read laserdisc electronics that doesn't cost $$$,$$$ !!
avatar
Waiting for the laserdisc format resurrection, in glorious analog UHD!
avatar
Seriously though, they really need to take a cue from the gun industry and make it savage-sexy (like the AR-15, a common rifle tricked-out to look wicked). Hey Kodak! Try something like this: http://collectiblend.com/Cameras/images/...-Super.jpg
avatar
Nice find, SW! ANALOG IS THE FUTURE (we should've known better)! In related news, George Lucas, ever the innovator, will film his next Star Wars movie in Super8! "This will give use even more resolution," he said to our reporter. "It will easily upstage our digital movies." - Fakenews Networks.
avatar
The price for that Super 8 camera is completely insane. What are they thinking?
avatar
Great read, I'm excited about this Super 8 resurgence, thanks for sharing SW.
avatar
avatar
Could not be surrounded by any better people than those I work alongside here.
avatar
That is what is awesome about this place. People with like minds and passion coming together to make things happen.
avatar
oh yes, I know, I read far more than I comment on
avatar
Forgot to mention, but, if they join, the project makers can also get particular help (allot of members here are full of ideas & suggestions) and even pool together as a group effort in their common interests. Very helpful.
avatar
of the ones I know about of course
avatar
thanks BT, Sporv replied via PM as well, maybe they join and like what they find, from the normal set of encoders/rippers/muxers they both take things about as far as it can go short of doing what happens here
avatar
All else aside, FanRes is an "open forum" and anyone can join at any time. Just click the above "Register" (which is shown when you're not signed-in) to join. "Join" allows one to post (including in this Shoutbox). But FanRes is a resource even for those who don't join, they just can't add to the sum of knowledge here. They still can "lurk" to see what others are doing, if they want (of course). Even then, FanRes fulfills a function of spreading the love of preservation and creativity -- a win/win for everybody! Smile
avatar
but what they do, is 1 step below what is happening here, so if they want to learn something new, maybe this is the place for them
avatar
in the sense that there is zero guarantee anyone that joins will participate, none whatsoever, it is
avatar
I wasn't making a point, just an observation, based on my experience here. Projects worked on here don't magically appear as you well know and It is exactly why some areas of the forum are only open to those who participate. Definitely nothing moot about that.
avatar
I don't speak for them, they are their own people, but they are 2 of the names that stick out in private tracker world because they go beyond what most other users do in terms of their releases. That makes me think they may be a good fit, but am I certain, of course not
avatar
considering there is no guarantee anyone that joins will participate in the site after joining that is a moot point, all that is is closed doors as without your prerequisite guarantee, nobody could join
avatar
I think it would genuinely depend on wether they are actually interested in participating in the site as members or just the software being created from scratch/updated/used by folks for projects? I do not speak for admin on this, just my experience as a project maker here.
avatar
sporv, I see you have been replying on forum, any answer to this would be appreciated, have a few people that I think would be very interested in that software you dudes are using
avatar
don't know if anyone is here right now, but is there a specific process regarding inviting people here, is it closed, open?
avatar
I hang with Quigon on most occassioins nowadays, the Emperor Palpatine's New Clothes were never impressive, he's just an attention whore anyways. LOL!!! Smile
avatar
All the Emperors hang around ... The Senate. (Thanks for that give-away, GL!) Wink

avatar
I didn't even know until yesterday that he has ties to Twitter, the Emperor that is, lol.
avatar
Muhahahahahahahahaha
avatar
I thought I felt a disturbance in The Force ... it's Emperor Zuckerberg! Eek
avatar
The darkside banished OT to a Twitter page, I hope they at least got store bought cookies, lol.

Is OT down? I receive a bad gateway error...

As a German, I really do not understand the fuss about the s-word. Big Grin
avatar
I'm glad to see the site isn't locked anymore. I know I said sorry for using the "s" word twice in a post but I don't think I'm to blame for this ... then again, worse has been said about me for far less. LOL
avatar
The mere humans always try to put the "fear of the gods" in everyone, but we TITANS just Arnold-laugh! <-- "Hercules In New York" reference Big Grin
avatar
phew, wondered if you had been locked out
avatar
Ve-e-ery interesting that our dear PostImage's website is suddenly attacked ... AFTER ... we started discussing OT's format. (Did anyone else notice they (OT) have the "Death Star" as their logo? Shocked REBEL PILOTS TO YOUR X-WINGS !! Ok )
avatar
From postImages.org >> "postimg.cc domain is locked by Registry, no prior notice. While we hope to resolve the issue, we chose postimg.CC as our new home. Please update codes embedded in your websites." ... So here's my above picture in the corrected link: https://postimg.cc/image/t2rjesb0b/

^ Never mind my suggested dark design. I just went there and white isn't the new default. Too bad, I thought there might be new blood at OT -- but just same old same-old ... Sad
avatar
(Actually, Postimg squished it in their preview.) Anyway, don't they know the power of the dark side? (Or that's what they WANT us to think? Clever Sith.) ... https://s9.postimg.cc/juzay33y7/OT_dark.png Wink
