Also, he wasn't exactly healthy, there were cognitive deficiencies not uncommon with men in their 80s. And yeah, at 95, he did live to a ripe old age, but death comes to us all, eventually.
avatar
I think the point Feallan was making was once you are in your 90s, there is no such thing as healthy
avatar
95.
avatar
Well, he was 96...
avatar
I don't understand... I thought he was healthy...

Rest In Peace: Stan Lee (1922 - 2018)

RIP

He will be missed, always got a good laugh with the cameos, and looked forward to them.

So sad... I'll miss his cameos... Sad

RIP Stan Lee

At least, with the Rammstein Shows, you can almost see your money burning at tracks as "Feuer Frei" Smile

Loved his work on Scarface!

Giorgio Moroder is great. I love what he did with Metropolis.
avatar
I booked Giorgio Moroder for 2019. I know, totally different... but at least it was cheap Big Grin
avatar
Yeah.. ticket price like from hell... but.. never saw them before live... and I like their shows on BD and DVD...
avatar
@MrBrown I got to see them live last year. It was great (apart from stupid expensive ticket prices and crappy venue).
avatar
Yeah! I am going to see Rammstein live next year! Big Grin

Artistic input?

Does anyone have experience with After Effects? I have a small video project I need help with that requires a bit of artistic input send me a private message.

Well, I translated a German word into a English word, and got only one result, seems as if the translation was not perfectly fitting my intented expression.
avatar
Merriam-Webster: subliminal (adjective) - "inadequate to produce a sensation or a perception". That explains your not getting the humor. I'll explain ... so, you see, the reference was to the story Nineteen Eighty Four, written in 1948. It ostensibly was about a future society, but actually was about the present day society. 1948 ... 1984 ... 19:84pm (I put the "pm" in) ... Get it? Wink
avatar
@BT: Neither people, nor posts just "disappeared". Your subliminal way of conspirational theoristic accusations are quite inppropriate and not really funny.
avatar
Mine was sort-of rhetorical, too. Let's check our watches ... it's 19:84pm. Let see how long before a reply. Big Grin
avatar
it was rhetorical, i have a pretty good idea of what he may have done
avatar
With people & posts disappearing, only the admin/mods would know. Care to speak up, fellas?
avatar
lmao, wonder what ol jetrell did to get himself banned here
avatar
Whoa! Did that "sock-puppet" word slip out? By the gods! BronzeTitan is NOONE's sock-puppet! DO YOU HEAR ME, HERMES?! HERA?! APHRODITE?! ATHENA?! ZEUS?! *lightning strike* Ouch! Oh, Zeus, you were listening. Sorry. Of course, your will is my command. (That was close. Shocked )
avatar
yup!

sporv?

@BT: not understood sock-puppet thing... may you explain? thanks!
avatar
Alas, that's our sock-puppet existance. But it isn't against The Rules. For me, I just carry around this huge, 2-story long, bronze sword. Wink
avatar
@BT: Maybe somebody reacted as intended to react, or somebody just does not want some special projects to become reality... Confused
avatar
@Feallan Oh OK great, I guess I just didn't notice because I don't generally read his threads. But I have nothing against him of course! Smile
avatar
@ Feallan - T̶h̶a̶n̶k̶s̶ ̶.̶.̶.̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶f̶r̶o̶m̶ ̶t̶h̶o̶s̶e̶,̶ ̶t̶o̶o̶,̶ ̶s̶u̶r̶f̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶r̶o̶u̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶ ̶I̶n̶t̶e̶r̶n̶e̶t̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶c̶o̶m̶e̶ ̶h̶e̶r̶e̶ ̶f̶r̶o̶m̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶i̶r̶ ̶s̶e̶a̶r̶c̶h̶e̶s̶!̶ . But, hmm, they still seem to be in the trash. You did move then back into the forum, didn't you? [added: I re-read and seems I misunderstood your action (or lack thereof).] . . @ PDB - Good point, except for this -- complaints are, well, "complaints"; and no complaints are ... "no complaints". (In that case, let the scoreboard call the game.)
avatar
I'd also like to point out that decision concerning Koopa was not made in a vacuum of admin/mod groupthink. It was done after complaints from members.
avatar
That's exactly what I did, he has one active topic on the forum
avatar
Actually I think it would be a good idea to tell Koopa to put all his project ideas and discussion in one thread and that would keep everyone happy.
avatar
Also, on a site note: I have the opinion, that your "1984"-similie is quite wrongly placed, for more than one reason.
avatar
Just to give a second "not Mod/Admin"-Opinion on that Topic: I am with the Mod/Admin decision on that topic. Nothing against people with good ideas, but somehow a certain flood of threads felt more like "spamming" with sometimes ridiculous unrealistic project "dreams"/wishes.
avatar
Everyone interested in reading Koopa's threads can still access them. I moved those threads out of respect for work of people who actually do something instead of just spamming the forum with 30 "idea" threads obscuring valuable discussion
avatar
Ouch, that post was alittle harsh, even if it was over 6 months ago. I don't know ... ideas for projects, even if not completed, are still a valuable resource at forums. And in other threads, Koopa Luath was doing the indepth research and resource gathering needed. Not just for himself, for anyone with the same interests. But that is little excuse to "clean house" and dump all his work in the trash -- especially as it doesn't seem to be used for (offline?) archiving. That is a clear insult to Koopa Luath and to everyone else here. It cries out for a policy change (if there is such a policy). Even OT, with all it's serious faults, doesn't play at being a 1984-style un-poster forum. I would suggest that Koopa Luath threads be returned to their rightful places at FanRes -- if not for deceny's sake, then for respect of our work, sweat, and tears to produce such for this forum.
avatar
avatar
Whoa ... just noticed that almost all of Koopa Luath inqueries/projects are in the "Recycle bin" -- 2 full pages of topics. What happened here? Any way to get them back into their areas? And what happened to all the previous topics (non-Koopa Luath) that were there but are no longer there? Truly deleted? (I thought Recycle bin was some sort of "offline archive" to free up space in the live area? Recycle bin: "A place for threads that normally would be deleted, but which may contain proper discussion here and there"

"I really enjoy editing the most. It's the part I have the most control over, it's the part I can deal with easiest ... It's the part I rely on the most to save things, for better or worse. Everybody has their ace in the hole - mine's editing." -George Lucas. How did Star Wars became enshrined in filmmaking history?

Imagine the Return of the Jedi we would of gotten if he was still involved, certainly no Ewoks

moonwalker ... it sounds to me that you expect this forum to act like a torrent site when it is not. Reading the rules/faq when signing up here would probably had helped clarify that. Secondly, most if not all online forums, act the same. To view their content, like ours, you have to sign up to gain access. Sadly, you are not the first new member of late, who seems to think this is some sort of dowlonad hub. Please contact admin or mods to get clarification on the protocols for this site and it's mission. Thanks.

i click on a movie link , and then it takes me to hdbits.org asking for user name PW and 2 step passcode , whats this and how do i get into that site .thnx

new here , love open matte versions. but i am having a little trouble working out this forum

hi all .

So breaking words or punctuation is an intended change? Weird for sure. LOL
avatar
It's an intended change by the plugin author
avatar
@ Feallan -- Something I noticed at about the time of your update: the Shoutbox wrap has become a dumb character count, which breaks words or breaks punctuation off it's preceding word.
avatar
YES! ANALOG is the future! But if you thought that flipping a laserdisc for the rest of the movie was a pain, try changing a stack of vinyl discs (how many seconds for a 70mm resolution movie?). By the time you get up, get the next disc, remove the previous disc, load in the new disc, and sit back down, it's time to get up for the next disc.

@deadliner, I concur with my fellow members ... The edits/restorations are only done/supported by a small group of the mainstream population really. Most don't get or understand the reason why they might be needed or wanted to be done. Risk is a big issue considering the source materials used, the private work and money that goes in to them, and they are NOT for sale by anyone associated with these projects. We are a very protective group with good reason to be so elusive.
avatar
Also, edits and restores tended to have a lot of money and time sunk into getting them done, so sometimes some people might only share it within their group for the first while I am guessing.
avatar
@deadliner. Maybe because people are taking a risk by releasing an edit/restoration, that and not all sites will allow these kinds of projects. Just the way it is i suppose.
avatar
Why are edits & restorations so difficult to get a hold of? A person can get practically any theatrical version extremely easily if they want to. But edits and restores? Nope. Near impossible to find them.
avatar
Thanks! From my very first link to them ... I FOUND A BUG! -- "Error 520 Web server is returning an unknown error" -- Am I good or what? Big Grin (Excuse me while I do my titan-victory-dance . . https://media1.tenor.com/images/d89ba4e9.../tenor.gif )

@ Feallan -- Are these updates local-fix or software-release updates? Is there a list of "improvements/fixes" for us to peruse and test? I like to stomp on things, like Argonauts ... but software code will do as well. Big Grin
avatar
Thanks Feallan

Updated all plugins we use (except the mobile theme), let me know if you find any problems

Updated the forum

Lossless? No unless you want the resulting file to be PCM. You can use MKV container flags to change the playback speed of the audio losslessly, but the playback speed flags are not reccomended to be used for audio.
avatar
Hey guys. Is it possible to losslessly convert a PAL/25fps AC3 audio file to NTSC/24fps speed?
avatar
@FrankT watch video instead of ask questions. It's possible to use Google unlimited space cloud storage for $50 per month and backup at least a full PB of data (they bought two extra accounts so they could transfer more bandwidth at once hence $70/m). Yes they have that much data and yes they need it backed up.
avatar
Thanks......
avatar
Bharath ... I don't know what your first language is so maybe I'm not understanding you but nobody downloads movies from this site because it is a preservation forum, not a torrent site. There are sites where the projects from here are hosted but most of them probably require membership to access the downloads. None of the projects done here are stored here for members to access with the click of a button. Any further questions you have should be directed to admin or mods. A quick read of the rules may also help answer some questions you may have. Please have a good day.
