Title: DTF Chat Thread v. Kinginese
Post by: ariich on November 23, 2015, 01:34:34 PM
Old one (http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=43444.0) was epic in length (TWSS) so time for a new one.

Posting in Kinginese is optional.

It's only the external backup that's running out of space, and that's because I have a 2Tb drive to backup 3Tb of internal storage. I'm thinking of asking for a 3Tb drive for Christmas for a new backup. I still have 700Gb free on my internal drives.

Basically I can guarantee my monitor will have perfect brightness and colour, exactly how it's supposed to look. I'm not sure whether I'll get the hardware calibrator now or later, since these things come from the factory damn near perfectly calibrated anyway.

I've thought about dual screens, but it's less necessary with larger monitors than it used to be in the CRT days (although it still has a lot of benefits depending on your usage). I don't think I have enough desk space for two monitors though, and I'm sure as hell not buying two of this monitor. :lol

Hey, Blob

What do you think of the color accuracy of a monitor like this one (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y09G6JG?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00). I bought one earlier this summer. I love the real estate and everything seem terrific to me, but I'm no expert and without having it calibrated, I'm unsure if I should do any color work on my family photos. Do you think that most of these products are close enough that if I do a little color correcting in Photoshop that the prints will look fine?

By the way, talk about not missing dual monitors anymore!  :)

Yeah, that thing is basically a dual monitor all by itself! :metal I'm personally not a fan of the current curved trend though, and I hope that doesn't catch on.

On paper it looks capable enough, I just have no idea how accurate the colours would be out of the box, since it doesn't appear to be targeted to high end image editing. For editing family photos I'm sure it's just fine though, but since it's not calibrated and isn't using a wider gamut, it may take a bit of trial and error to get your prints looking exactly how you see them on screen.

I'm not a fan of the curved trend for a living room televisions, for sure. But this thing on my desktop, being closer to my face, is really comfortable...and playing FPS games is a real treat!
Title: Re: DTF Chat Thread v. Kinginese
Post by: BlobVanDam on November 24, 2015, 07:20:56 AM
I have less problem with it for an individual screen, but for multiple people like a living room, it makes no sense to me (it makes no sense to me either way, but it makes less sense).

My new monitor will only be 24", so nowhere near as big as your beast of a monitor, but even that will be a huge upgrade in size for me from my current 17" CRT. To me 24" is the sweet spot for computer monitors. Beyond that, and the input lag and refresh often start to suffer, and I'd rather have a smaller screen with better specs.

What about 4K OLED?

I've been waiting over almost a decade for OLED monitors to finally hit the market, so I'm interested in those, but I have no interest in 4K (and none of this curved fad garbage). There's currently very little content for 4K, and I wouldn't want to run a PC full time at that res with current hardware and software, nor would I run at non-native res on a fixed resolution panel. But real black would be nice instead of the terrible way LCD handles it.

And I missed Dr. DTVT by a few days - he was heading out of town (for a meetup with Nick and King no less), just as I was heading into his neck of the woods.

If Reaper would only tell me when he comes into town, I could scratch him off the list too.

The sex was great as well

Funny, that's what the Queen told me when you went to tinkle.

I have not, in fact, met jingle.  Or many others.  Although I would love too.

I met rumborak and a host of other older members (who are largely inactive here now) at the DTF meetup in New York on April 1, 2006 (before the RCMH show).  In addition, it is my understanding that several people who are still active were there also, but we didn't meet - it was a large gathering, and I was still fairly new to DTF.

I also met vtgrad at the local showing of Live at Luna Park.  And I met DrDTVT in my city on my birthday a few years ago (he happened to be travelling through, so we met for lunch).

Geez man, why do you have to be such a downer?  You asked "Has anyone here met another DTFer in reality ?"

I post a picture in the pic thread everytime I meetup with someone, as do a lot of others.  I know you've been in the pic thread.  It would seem logical that you know the answer to the question you asked.  So my response of "not sure if serious" (through a very common and widely used gif) is putting you in your place how? 

Your question was not worded to ask "which members have met other members?" if that's what you intended.

But whatever... take it as me putting you in your place.

I didn't have anywhere near that many.

Atari 2600
Commodore 64
NES
SNES
Gameboy
Gameboy Colour
N64
Gameboy Advance
Playstation (pretty sure the PS2 was already out by the time I got one and I barely played it anyway :lol)
Gamecube
Nintendo DS
Wii (eventually)


The Commodore 64 and NES sadly didn't make it (my parents sold them off when I was too young to care :(). Some of the Atari 2600 survived and most of the SNES (I only have five games now though). Probably a combination of sold and lost. Everything else is intact.

Here is what I had growing up until now:

Not that many systems, I've always been a PC gamer primarily.

I played NES at a friend's house but never owned one. No childhood was complete without playing SMB and Duck Hunt!
The Mega Drive is worth it just for the Sonic games.

Fix'd for me.

Man, that was one helluva sleep in.  9.5 hours.  Mrs.jingle had to get up and get going relatively early this morning, which meant she could let the dogs out - I took advantage and turned the alarm off.  My body cooperated and let me sleep until 9am.

Weekend = chores.  It's freezing out there - literally, 00C.  Indoor work only.

My landlord's repair man was also supposed to come by my place to fix our deadbolt, which is being a little bitch. Dude was supposed to be here like at 3:30. And then it got pushed to 4. Then 6-7p. Now its almost 8pm and he is now ALMOST here. So fucking much for doing the shit we had planned on doing. (Shooting range, bowling, dinner, drinkz). Now we have like just time to grab food. Maybe. If the dude doesn't take too long. He still has to show up, diagnose, and fix the issue.

Just some work I'm currently doing for a company. I'm redoing all of the icons for a piece of their software, because the current ones are ancient and amateurish, and they need them in larger sizes. There are about 800 icons to do in total.
Title: Re: DTF Chat Thread v. Kinginese
Post by: Podaar on November 29, 2015, 06:13:35 AM
Depending on the size of them that would be difficult! I remember, some years ago, trying to make a set of icons that were 12 px x 12 px. The only way I found to do it effectively was to make them at 150 x 150 and then shrink them to use as a template to make cleaner icons. This was back in the 1990's though.

I'm sure you have a much more effective way now.

Sounds like you were still working with palettized images? The current icons are like that, but the new icons are true colour with a proper alpha channel, so it's a little easier. Other than that, not too different. I'm creating the icons at 128x128, then I use a macro in Photoshop to automatically export to the different sizes the icons need, which is 16, 20, 24, 32, 40, 48, and 64. 16x16 is hard enough, so 12x12 must have been basically impossible. And on many of these icons they've tried to squeeze in writing. Ugh!

"Barmy" (as referenced under synonyms) is a more modern "chiefly British" mangling of the original word.

Funnily enough I was thinking of Survivor when I posted.  Yeah , it has been warm and muggy here too with ridiculous winds/storms that have had our place looking like a hurricane zone 3 days out of the last six.   Weird weather that makes me wonder what we're in for this coming summer.

That time we all got texts for an evacuation warning, so my family was going apeshit. It was pretty scary, but with the direction it was approaching from, I think we were safer than it looked.

Back in the bushfires of 2001, the fires burned out the empty lot directly across the road from us. There's a house there now, but it would have been gone if it was built then. Lucky there's an 8ft high concrete wall just behind it, because I could see flames a good 3m high behind it. The worst of it was on Christmas Eve, but the fire across the street was on Christmas fucking morning. The whole house stunk of smoke for a couple of days too.

Summer, amirite?
Title: Re: DTF Chat Thread v. Kinginese
Post by: bl5150 on November 30, 2015, 09:40:08 AM
Yeah...........it gets dicey at times.

On Black Saturday we got outta there and drove 10-15 kms south of the fires.  This is a photo from around there with our house (obviously) 10-15kms in the distance about to be engulfed..........it seems.  Thankfully there was a change in wind direction about then.

It's almost time for me to leave. I think I'll listen to the new Subsignal on the way home. It's killer in case someone wants to check it out. I know it's on Spotify already. On the way in I listened to the Haken Restoration EP.

I'd say a mix of melodic rock/AOR and prog rock. Subsignal has the two main guys from Sieges Even. Are you familiar with them?

I like the new one but I also think Paraiso is superior. I wrote the review for it on Lady Obscure's site.

I love Sieges Even.

I always loved SE but when Arno Menses took over as their vocalist they reached a whole different level of awesome.

We also have a gas heater in the basement, so we also still have heat if we lose power.  Which has come in handy on more than one occasion during winter.

My first attempt turned out alright considering, but it kinda looked like a senior citizen with Parkinson's trying to dance. :lol Then I tried the automatic jitter removal, and now it looks awesome.

But for the time and cost invested so far, I'm very happy with the potential of this.

Patching stuff never happened before online gaming. Games just worked out of the box.


It's like in Destiny. There was one cave where monsters would frequently re-spawn and leave all sorts of goodies. SO of course that got "fixed"  ::)

And there was one boss where you could hide in one spot and fire away and not get harmed. WE'LL PATCH THAT...

NO FUN ALLOWED.

It also gives publishers an excuse to rush games out and patch it so it works later. A lot of big games have had nasty bugs out of the box that they had to patch immediately.

I'm a casual gamer at best these days though, so it doesn't affect me. I just got an XBOX 360 Kinect today, and I never even intend to plug it into my actual XBOX 360. :lol

VR could be great once it's developed, although it's still in its infancy. So glad I have the money now for when the Oculus Rift or the Valve one comes out to mess around with (again, not going to be for gaming though).
The Kinect is a great piece of hardware, but I don't like such an imprecise method of input for gaming, same with the Wiimote. The Kinect is great for other uses though. I also prefer a gamepad for gaming.

Google Cardboard is nice as a cheap starting point for VR, although the optics are no doubt nothing close to accurate in terms of perspective, not to mention that smartphones are somewhat underpowered and don't have great screens for something as demanding as VR. I expect the step up from that to the Rift or the Valve HTC will be no less mind blowing.

They'll probably have to scale back graphics a bit for the PS4 too, although that should still manage some good stuff. Having fixed hardware helps in terms of optimization.
My interest fully lies in the PC side, but not for gaming. I'd love to make some VR environments, and be able to really experience them, instead of just seeing it on a screen. The thought of seeing the TARDIS at full scale, or walking around Hill Valley 2015 are the kinds of things I'm itching to make. :blob:

Yeah. That's going to be great. I think the VR is really going to shine in the homebrewing community. The playstation VR will be able to display at 60hz, 90hz, and 120hz. Should give developers some nice options in regards to the scale of their environments. Developers don't seem to have many problems getting 60fps (though I'm not sure if that means 30fps in each eye), but I know Sony has been working with them to try and get 90fps.

60fps means 60fps, it's not like 3D with glasses on a home theater that alternates frames for each eye. It's good that the Playstation VR screen supports those higher framerates, although driving it is another. Much like a lot of console games have had to run at 30fps or only render at 720p and upscale, I expect we'll see the same deal with Playstation VR. There are also some optimizations they can do to run the game at a lower framerate, but still maintain the higher framerate sense of presence by applying some camera transforms without updating. I don't know how much that will help though.

Since the Oculus has already been available for a couple of years to developers, it's already incorporated quite well into all of the major game engines that indie developers use, such as the Unreal Engine, and Unity which is what I use, and it's almost trivial to get it up and running. Adapting a game or creating one from scratch to work within the parameters of a whole new way of playing is of course another matter altogether.

2016 is going to be an important year for VR.

I'm really looking forward to it. I've been waiting for this since trying a Virtual Boy in Toys R Us when I was about five. I think it has the potential to completely revolutionize how we watch video content. The thought of being able to look around a movie and seeing it from different angles is awesome.

Just out of curiosity, have you heard of or read the book "Ready Player One"?

I know it, but I'm not much of a sit down and read kind of guy. If I was a reader though, it would be on my list.

The reason I've always hated 3D movies is because the 3D implementation is not truly how our eyes work. VR is how it should be done, although I'm not sure it will be practical any time soon to make movies that way. But looking around is out of the question for now unless it's rendered on the fly, because obviously stereoscopic video doesn't support left/right panning. Up/down should be fine in theory. Maybe they'll find a better way to fudge it in future, but the storage and editing requirements would be ridiculous.

No doubt. I didn't mean that that'll be the first thing we see out of VR. But in 20-30 years time, I think the technology and processing power will be able to make that available to the masses.

There are no cures or remedies for stupidity, only band-aids.

But there is correction by someone else.  That's still a feather in John's cap.

He'll fix the problem, and make his money, and move along, but I'm sure the other idiot will fudge it back up soon enough. :biggrin:

Very true but as a manger myself, I take notes to someone that is willing to fix someone problem for the better good.  Those are the ones you take care of.


So I go allll the way up to 238th St. in the Bronx (I work out of downtown Brooklyn) which is about an hour and a half on the subway and Verizon STILL didn't fix their end of it. Instead of just saying that they're still working on it, they said it's something on the transit side of things. BULLSHIT.  Three hours of traveling to do two minutes of testing to realize Verizon still doesn't have a clue. 

On a side note, thank you New York City tax payers for paying for rest of the 7 hours and 58 minutes that I was doing nothing.   ;D

Nah, I thought we were 15 hrs difference.  Maybe that's Kade or Brent?  I dunno... timezones!  How do they work?

I don't know. I thought we were all the same timezone, although DST may differ between states. It varies from 14-16 hours depending on the time of year.

The stats are quite comparable on paper, and I even suspect they're using the same LCD panel, which helps eliminate some comparison. The difference is mostly the rest of the electronics, and I'm finding it hard to find directly comparable reviews from the same site to see if one has a distinct advantage in quality. When I'm spending ~$1700 on a monitor, the $100 difference doesn't matter much to me if one is better than the other.

So tomorrow (technically its past midnight so today) is payday. I got a notification from my payroll app at 10 PM with my paystub. I look at the paystub and see that I am shorted overtime.

This is the second pay period in a row this has happened. I am NOT a happy penguin.

I sent a long email to the girls in the office, as well as the owner of the company, my account manager, and my supervisor. Surprisingly the owner emailed me back at midnight... so hopefully this will be resolved soon.

Its like $100 I am shorted, before tax. Not a lot to some people but still...

Right before the holidays too.  That's shyte Jay.  King's right, owner should pony up, given it's the second time in a row his employees have boned you. I'm sure $100 isn't too much for him to float.

They're sending me back to the same place I was yesterday and Friday. Verizon really are a bunch of lazy fucks. This will go on and on, back and forth, until management gets involved and they finally admit it's something on their end.

So, I get there and the circuit is good. Yet nobody claims to have done something to change it. The Verizon techs do this a lot. They claim it's not their fault and there's nothing they can do, then within twenty four hours everything is working again. I know one of our guys didn't do anything because, well, they do shit most of the time.

It will be the first monitor I've bought since 2002, and the first LCD monitor I've ever had for my PC, so I'm going to make sure it's a good one. This is what it takes to get a monitor that meets my standards. :lol

But it's not a valid joke. This monitor calibrates down to the exact recommended brightness, which isn't bright. The thing will only be running at about 30% of the maximum brightness. :blob: It's a sad fact that the majority of people run their monitors WAY too bright because they just use the shitty defaults, but this monitor is factory calibrated correctly.

My previous monitor was a 17" CRT back in 2003 which cost $205. This should be a sweet upgrade for the most part (although I'll miss CRT refresh rate and lack of input lag).

For a gamer, that thing will actually kick the shit out of my monitor, as the higher end monitors have much slower refresh rates that are garbage for gaming, because they sacrifice response time for colour accuracy (and vice versa for the cheaper monitors). That monitor is clearly purely for gamers.
If you do graphics work though, you wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. :biggrin:

LCD monitors are all about compromise, so it's a matter of what your priority is. If we swapped monitors, we'd both be very unhappy, with good reason. :lol

Lucky he uses the Adobe programs, since they're all cross platform. Plus with buying a PC, he can upgrade as necessary in future moreso than with a Mac, which again makes it even cheaper.

The Australian dollar is currently in the crapper at $0.72, and we get raped on prices at the best of times. The recommended retail price for the monitor here is about $1600. Also, the price I paid includes the colorimeter to calibrate it, plus a monitor hood, plus shipping.

Makes sense. In notice the 27" monitor in that model is $2200.00 here. That's a huge step up price so it's also likely that Amazon has some sort of "special" going on the 24"

So, I got dragged to a concert last night by my wife and a couple of friends. The English Beat (The British Beat for you Aussies)

I. Am. Shit. Full. Of. Ska!

That's a higher end range, not in the same range as mine. I don't see the 27" from the same range on Amazon.

I'm a network engineer, Cisco certified. I use some of that expertise at my job but I also deal with antiquated phone circuits and equipment like CSU/DSUs. I never worked with the phone system before. Most of my experience is with routers and switches. The phone system is light years easier compared to learning LAN/WAN.

Software engineering is interesting. Besides what I do for my job, I'm also teaching myself C++, Linux Red Hat, penetration testing, and gray hat hacking.

Nice :tup. I was looking into getting a cisco cert for networking and it's tough test

They updated it earlier this year and it made it extremely difficult. The reason being was because people were getting their CCNA and then not pursuing the more advanced certifications. That left them with limited knowledge about networking, so Cisco made the CCNA a more arduous certification to attain. If you want some advice about what to use for studying just let me know.

I assume that would be the 100/120Hz mode, with that nasty interpolation that makes everything look unnaturally smooth. Most people seem to hate the higher frame rate, as evidenced by the response to the Hobbit movies.
How much Australian TV have you even seen besides Neighbours anyway? :lol

Oh you get Home and Away too? Wasn't sure how popular that was there. That just finished yesterday for the year. They pulled a "who shot Mr Burns" storyline.

I studied and passed the CCNP ROUTE exam which is the hardest of the three exams needed to be a CCNP, the other being SWITCH and TSHOOT. I blew it out of the water with a 953 out of 1000. I'm actually thinking about going straight for the CCIE instead of finishing the CCNP. However, I don't know if I will be finished studying in time before my certification expires. So, I might just take the SWITCH exam first or just retake the CCNA to extend the validity of the certification.

Morning, Boss

We took our granddaughter out to dinner last night. While we're sitting there waiting for the server to come take our order, I say, "Well Tessa, 11 huh? Wow, how time flies." She smiled at me just a little and does this  ::)

So I look over at Mrs. P for some clue and she says, "Tessa's 13, Dear." Then Tess, laughs out loud and rolls her eyes again. The three of us are all looking at each other now with heads swiveling like six-shooters at a Mexican stand-off. She giggles again, and says, "I'm 12 Pappa."

This grandparent business is more difficult than you would think. Just as you start to loose your faculties, a crap load of people you need to keep track of come into your life.  :lol

The original series is not at all necessary viewing to get into the modern series, so it's not as daunting as it looks (I'd strongly recommend starting with the new series either way). The modern series is self contained, it just has the occasional classic series nugget for the die-hard fans.

Even though there would be some references you would miss, you could even start more recently than that, either with the start of Matt Smith's run (series 5) or even Capaldi (series 8).

TNG Series 5 is the best by far.

Series 1 really shows it's Eighties in retrospect. The horrible synthy music over everything and overly dramatic acting.

Thank fuck they ditched all that for Series 3 onwards.

Cool, we're Eizo buddies! :tup I just got an Eizo CS240 (24" 1920x1200 AH-IPS). I just set it up, so I'm still adjusting to it. Haven't even calibrated it yet. First impressions are that the size is perfect, I don't need to adjust the text size. I was hoping the blacks would be a little deeper, but I knew that IPS didn't have the best black level, and I'm coming off a CRT here, so I'm used to good blacks. No dead pixels, consistency looks great, colour temperature is warmer than I'm used to, but I knew I always had my colour temp too cold in the past, so this looks more neutral. Refresh rate is better than I expected.
The only disappointment is that it only came with some awful micro Displayport cable, which I can't use because my PC has a real Displayport port, so I'm stuck with DVI until I can buy another cable. Not a big deal, but 10 bit colour will have to wait for another day.

To do it properly, it's best with a monitor that actually supports hardware calibration, rather than just software. I now have presets for sRGB at 80cd/m, 100cd/m, and 120cd/m. I liked 120cd/m the best, so I'm going with that for now. :blob:

Post by: Podaar on December 11, 2015, 07:12:40 AM
I just did a little reading, Blob.

Yeah, I didn't understand the process properly. It's probably best just to go with the factory calibration that came with my monitor. Since I'm primarily concerned with having my edited family pictures print accurately to what I'm seeing on the monitor, it's not really that big of a deal. For the most part, things turn out fine if just a bit off on the temperature. I'll just need to compare and adjust from there.

Otherwise, I'd need to pick a specific lab and have them calibrate the monitor (and Photoshop) to their equipment.

Besides, standards are better than ever and it's not likely that I'll send something to a print lab and get a dramatically off color.

The most important thing is to make sure your monitor is set to a reasonable brightness (the defaults on 95% of LCDs are about twice as bright as they should be, especially to emulate paper), and try to adjust your gamma, which you can do with a test image and your graphics card software. And try to set your monitor's colour temperature to something neutral (printing should be set to warmer than what most monitors are defaulted to). Most monitors have no standards, but print labs are probably used to compensating for average consumer equipment unless they're aimed specifically at pros.
Doing graphics, it's such piece of mind to know my monitor is displaying objectively correct colours. One less thing to concern myself with when uploading videos to the internet, or doing video for other people.

I installed f.lux on my Mac, which automatically adjusts not only the brightness, but hue and contrast as well - based on sunrise/sunset.  Takes a bit of getting used to, but it's cool.

I installed f.lux on my Mac, which automatically adjusts not only the brightness, but hue and contrast as well - based on sunrise/sunset.  Takes a bit of getting used to, but it's cool.

That would be an awful idea for image quality and consistency, as it's assuming the colour temp of the ambient light (ie flourescent/incandescent vs natural daylight colour temps, which can all vary greatly), and brightness. It would be a much better idea to have a more controlled environment for working at the computer.
I'm not sure if that can access the monitor settings directly being a Mac, but if that's done in software, that would be even worse.

Yes, I'm a computer/graphics snob. This is not news. :lol

While I don't do graphics that monitor that I have was way way too bright when I first got it out of the box. Like eyes tearing up bright.

I don't even know the last time I properly watched the movies. I'm not that much of a fan. I'm not sure when I'll be seeing TFA either yet. I'd like to see it fairly early, but I'm not sure I want to go anywhere near it on the first days. And school holidays will have just started I think, so the daytime won't be any safer.

I don't blame you. Kids + Christmas holidays + Star Wars + basically no movie competition = terrible.
I do prefer to see movies early on though, usually on the first day or two. Our local cinema is usually bare, so it will be interesting to see what it's like for Star Wars.

Can't say I've ever wanted a cinema screen to be bigger. If we can we pay a bit more for the "Xtreme Screen", which I guess is supposed to be larger, but we only do it because it has nicer seats, and it has rows of 2 off to the side, so there's no risk of being next to people, plus they have cupholders, which we use for candy.

The only 3D that I do go to nowadays is the odd IMAX screening, but if it's actually shot in 3D, then I'm interested.  X-Men Apocalypse is the only one in 2016 that has any consequence for me.  Nothing in 2015 was.

We have a chain of movie theaters here that serve food at your seats before the movie starts. You get these massive recliners and a really kick ass menu. The theater holds only about 50 people too and they serve booze so it's 21 and over.

Nice. Not that I drink, or would pay cinema prices for anything though. We always smuggle in our own candy.
Our cinema is never filled, usually only about 20 people. We had no problem booking tickets for opening day at 10pm (or earlier times, but 10pm was the most convenient time). It's the first official day of school holidays here, so I imagine the day screenings will be packed.

Yes, they have been getting better each week, which is kind of rare in the NFL.  They are worlds better than they were at the beginning of the season.

We did lose a player for the rest of the season, but I think the defense will be able to overcome that.

Well, the Star Wars film was lovingly made by people who have a deep and abiding love for Star Wars and truly want this film to be worth the wait and live up to the previous best the series had to offer, and the Star Trek film was not.

Both things are painfully obvious.

Have a good trip home Prog. I still have another 35 minutes at work, afterwards I'm getting some greek food and then going to see Third Eye Blind tonight.

My church went for Chinese food yesterday.

They started bringing plates out and I was like :( there's nothing here. I'm not gonna get anything.

Then after a couple of tiny courses which I didn't care for - they bought out plate after plate after plate of sweet n sour meat and I was like  ;D oh hell yes.

There were 14 of us and they bought out so much food that

a.) I was full up

b.) We took 10 tubs home of leftovers :lol

I find it offensive to my beliefs as a strong sports denier.


It is truly sad that I am 10x more excited for a Star Wars movie than I am for a Star Trek movie. Maybe this was JJ's plan all along.
Well, the Star Wars film was lovingly made by people who have a deep and abiding love for Star Wars and truly want this film to be worth the wait and live up to the previous best the series had to offer, and the Star Trek film was not.

Both things are painfully obvious.

Very true. :lol :(

And don't search for the job you want. Just type in your "area" and search with the job title left blank.

it will give you ALL the most recent jobs - some are merely minutes old.

Everyone will be searching for the job they want so all those jobs go immediately.

I've looked into a UPS many times, but I always end up not getting one, whether it's because of the price, or the hassle of resetting them when the power does go out, I dunno. My current PC setup is probably about $3000 of equipment just for the bare basics, so I'll have to get one eventually. At least I do back everything up constantly, which is my main concern. Equipment can be replaced, but my work/data can't.

Two more days until (almost) a 3-week vacation.  Things are a little to busy at work for me to completely take time off between now and the end of the year, so I'm just gonna work 'part-time' for the next 2 weeks - get up early, work for a few hours, check email a couple time throughout the day, and address urgent situations.  This is the two week period the kids are home for Christmas break, so we'll hang out and do shit together.  Then, when they go back to school the 1st week of Jan, I'm taking that week off totally, and doing the square root of fuck-all.

People in my screening were generally fine. Obviously some applause at the STAR WARS logo and the appropriate laughs and gasps.

BUT :emo:

There were a couple of guys who were blatantly just there to piss people off. They were shouting at everything. Making noises in the quiet bits and glass was heard breaking.

At one point the film paused and everyone went " uh oh " and we heard a voice

" Sorry for the disruption - we're just going to eject these people from the premises " followed by cheers and applause :lol

Through all of the recent emotional breakdowns, she is the only thing keeping me sane and sober (for the most part). I have to suck it up, be a man, and be somewhat responsible, for her. I give her the attention she needs more than anyone, including her mother, so for me to be irresponsible would be self-indulgent and disgraceful. So yes, every penny I spend is worth that big smile, and to hear her in her developing language say "aw, how cute."

It's primarily big-ticket items in the jingle household this season.  Both kids are getting iPads (it's kinda mandatory for jingle.son - it's as much a drawing tablet for him); got to pickup a new iPhone for mrs.jingle, and the appropriate accessories.  Once that's done, all is complete.  The joys of having a stay-at-home wife... she's a big planner, and takes care of everything.  She's upstairs wrapping the extended family gifts right this moment.

That's exactly my problem. It has to be perfect and neat and just so. If it's not, the paper is coming off and I'm starting over. Because of the unbearable stress, the alcohol involved winds up becoming too much that I'm putting scotch tape on everything else besides the paper, and then I'm out of tape. A free tip, just because they're both called Scotch doesn't mean they should be used at the same time.

Yup, Rocky Mountain high, baby.

So, in my spare time, I've been working through a video game on the hardest settings trying to acquire some ridiculously difficult achievements while simultaneously enforcing my own additional rules. It's my favorite game and I've completed it a number of times...but last night, I realized I was starting to be bored with playing.

But then, I finished one of the more difficult levels and the game popped up one of those achievement awards. I can't believe how much of a difference it's made in my attitude. I'm seriously considering putting on my headphones and going for more.

Sometimes, I'm such a little kid.  :lol

Geez, yeah those are perfect conditions for a fire to spread.
Tomorrow's going to be 33C, but then the rest of the week is supposed to be in the 20s with rain until the weekend, so that will be a nice change.

Title: Re: DTF Chat Thread v. Kinginese
Post by: kingshmegland on December 20, 2015, 05:59:24 AM
No. They called it the boiler but it's the furnace.  It is 23 years old.  So many leaks and rusted spots. It's been on the verge of over heating. The cost of repairs is 2/3rd of a new one.  So I might as well update. I need to thiknow about a water heater instead.   Waiting on a few quotes right now.

Ah... ok.  I had to replace ours a few years back.  It died the week right before Christmas, on a Friday morning.  Mrs.jingle was doing the annual Christmas baking, so we didn't even notice it until the end of the day, when it was too late to get anything done about it. Fortunately, my neighbour is a GC (and had done work for us), so he was able to hook us up with a guy that had one in stock, and a buddy to install it.  All was good (except for my wallet) by Saturday evening.  Didn't set me back as much as yours is going to though.

What's not to understand?  This is the "Kinginese" thread after all.  Allow me to break this down:

He's been to SoCal
Told the city "F-U" because they've got great weather, scenery, ecology etc...
I re-autocorrected "in turn" to be "u-turn".

So... in summary, Kinginese-English translation provides us with "I've been to San Diego; tell them "Fuck You", and do a u-turn,  back to Boston".

I only needed to read it once.  Gregg, you don't spend enough time practicing your Kinginese.

Tell me about it. My family is easy. We're small. Including the non-blood relatives and my grandmother's 24/7 nurse, we never exceed 14 people. Victoria's family on the other hand, ugh. She has 32 first cousins (all blood) and more aunts and uncles than I can count. Christmas at their house easily exceeds 60 people, and deep down, I truly believe most of them don't want to be there. It's a headache and way too much stress. It costs a small fortune and is the epitome of American selfishness and consumerism. I actually get uncomfortable when I have to sit there and look around at how wasteful the entire day really is. I'm beyond thrilled to not have to deal with any of it this year. I got my dad and gift card to guitar center and my mom has six pre-paid appointments at her favorite nail salon. My sister and I don't exchange. I'm very content with how the holiday is being handled this year. Unfortunately, I don't think it's going to become a regular thing for us as her family doesn't seem too thrilled with our decision.

About 8 people show up and her mom makes a 20lb turkey with 5 side dishes, all of it gets thrown away because she doesn't believe in making less food (sorry I got off on a tangent here). An argument always breaks out and my gf and I just sit there waiting until it's appropriate enough to leave. This year my gf's sisters husband is there and there is a new baby in the mix. Her husband is a piece of shit who has a short fuse and a god complex. It's just a mess lol.

I hate when fights break out. We have Victoria's parents over for dinner every now and then, and without fail, her mom and dad will start bickering at some point. Every single time. Last time it was because there was sausage pizza in the same boz as meatball pizza. If I'm at your house, fine, I can't tell you how to converse, but if you're sitting in my dining room, I don't want to hear any of that crap. You don't know how badly I wish I could just say "get the fuck away from my table and take that bullshit outside". There is nothing more rude or irritating to me than people fighting while trying to enjoy a meal, especially when it's around someone else's table. Have some decency.

I think the longest I stayed up was around 40 hours. I parked myself with two of my friends outside of a target for a ps3. I was going to buy it and resell it on ebay.

Day one was fine and the night was ok, played some cards with my buddies. Day two I was pretty tired but the night of day two was fucking terrible. It was freezing and raining. Some guy showed up and offered me $1000 to buy my spot in line and he would wait the rest of the day, I took the money and drove home (awful idea, it was probably worse than if I was driving drunk).

I surprisingly had a hard time falling asleep when I got home but was eventually able to.

Doing it in the younger days is a completely different beast. Shit, I remember so many nights of drinking straight through until morning and then driving to work. I can't do that anymore. Okay, I'm lying. I do it from time to time, except I'm not driving this time.

I think my max was about 39. Felt completely fine that time, I just fell asleep the instant I shut my eyes.
Another time when I stayed up 24 hours because I was typing up an assignment for my sister, I was hallucinating bugs on the keyboard. :lol

These days I'm a lightweight and start to feel terrible even at around 20 hours, so it's been a while since I've stayed up.

Well, it was a real struggle. They ended up prescribing sleeping aids and she had a hot line number she could call at any moment to talk her down when she was jonesing for it too much. She jumped back on it a few times but eventually kicked it.

As I recall, the biggest problem is that your sinuses swell shut when you don't use it, so you become a mouth breather for 4-5 days until the stuff get's out of your system. It's kind of torturous.

I don't believe it actually has an addicting narcotic in it, but if you're predisposed for getting hooked (she had an addictive personality) it can rule your life.

As always, a medical professional (I'm not one) is highly recommended.

Good evening peeps.

A coworker and good friend of mine just got bumped up as an area supervisor for another company which he's been working with for like 2 years... and right off the bat is offering me work. The company treats it's employees like royalty, it pays better than what I make now, and it's less stressful.

There are issues though. There is no full time work. It's mainly events. If I tried hard enough, I could make it fullish time, but it wouldn't be as stable as where I am now. The other issue is most of the work is in Santa Barbara. Currently I live 6 miles from work. 10 min drive through town. Santa Barbara is 50 miles, and it can take anywhere from an hour to 2.5 hours to get to / from.

I am going to start taking the odd job up in Santa Barbara (especially since he can throw a bit more cash my direction for certain things), and when anything pops up in my area, I am first on the list to snag it, at least event wise.

Post by: AcidLameLTE on December 23, 2015, 04:42:08 AM
For a year, I lived about 75 miles away from where I worked and I found that the commute really wore me down after a while (even though I was car sharing). It was probably about an hour/hour and fifteen minutes shorter than your commute as well. You find that the fuel costs rise like mad too. Now that I live about 2 miles away from work (I mostly walk or cycle), I find that my petrol costs per month are about half to a third of what I would spend per weeek when I was doing the 75 mile commute and that was with me driving 1-3 times a week.

For me, it wasn't worth it and I wouldn't do it again. Got to think about your quality of life as well as the money and all that jazz.

I just checked the Telstra site, and it's more expensive than what I'm paying for an off-net plan for a lot less bandwidth, and it's on a 24 month contract.

I just checked TPG and their offnet prices have come down a lot. Five or so years ago when I was with them I think I was paying $90 and had 200GB split between peak and offpeak. But now it's only $60 for that. The 500GB is more expensive than Telstra though.

Oh I was thinking it was still cheaper, but I must be getting confused with their regular plans. I should have figured if it was a better price, I'd be on that plan already. :lol
Sounds like you were on the same plan I'm on, but more expensive. That must have been early days, because it's not too long ago they didn't even offer off-net plans.

Good morning.

Internet is all relative.  I get capped at 100Mbit download (10Mbit upload), but only have 320GB/month total.  $60-ish CAD.

DT-side general chat got nuked earlier this year I believe.  It wasn't being used at all.  Harry... most of the old guard you remember is either gone, or avoids the DT side altogether.  It's a freakshow over there - though encouraging that DT still attracts new fans.  We wait until they graduate, and come over to GD.  I feel sorry for the mods that have to actually read that shit.  Every now and then I take a peek to remind myself why I don't go over there.  Never takes me more than a quick perusal of one thread to make a u-turn and get my ass outta there.  Same can be said for P/R.

GD and GMD is where it's at baby!

Hello to everyone who have said "Morning"...can't keep up with all these new posts!

jingle.boy - Ah okay! Thanks! I generally avoided 95% of the threads in the DT side that weren't that chat thread anyway!

But that's where all the old people talked!

Morning chaps, mates and chumps.
Afternoon (oh how I've missed this game)!

Hey, hows your face after that accident?
It's fine! It was the bloody surgery that I had a few weeks later that made my face swell up like a balloon :lol

The swelling has mostly gone down now, thankfully. You can still see it a little bit but unless you're looking for it, it's not obvious. My cheek bone is also in the correct place now which is a bonus.

But that's where all the old people talked!

Now all the old people talk here. The DT side chat thread was for noobs. You know, people who still listened to DT. :neverusethis:

And who does that, right? :neverusethis:

I haven't listened to any new DT stuff in a while but I also haven't listened to any new stuff from most bands in a while, to be honest. For the last few years, I've only really heard one or two new albums (new to me, at least) per year...I'm getting pretty lazy.

I went a few years without checking out much new music, but I've listened to a bit more lately. I still don't listen to much new music compared to a lot of people here though. Ain't nobody got time for that with my busy busy lifestyle.

That's the problem really. When I was a student and walked 45 minutes each way to work/university, I had plenty of time to listen to new music. Don't have that any more with a full time job etc. Joys of being an adult :(

Thanks. It was a pain in the ass to match the look of the original. Every panel has its own texture map, gloss map, and reflection map, and a global environment map. I had to hand paint all of the subtle worn off plating on the front.

The tarnish, is just the right color. It's so difficult to keep it from turning out red once you add lighting...at least it used to be for me. Of course, with modern programs you may be painting the texture directly to the model for all I know.  :lol

I don't know why it would turn out red. :lol But I find anything yellowy/goldy difficult, because that hue just shades weirdly. I'm still having some trouble stopping this from looking mustardy in the crevices. I've spent way too long on this one model, I'll probably never get this project done.

I actually never listened to any of his Xmas albums. I should add them to my Spotify playlist.

You know, I was just thinking.

It's been fantastic having my kids at a young age. I know it's not for everyone, but it has worked out extremely well for me. I can relate with them (easier than my folks did with me). I get to enjoy my grand-children while I'm still relatively young compared with my maternal grandfather who was 60 when I was born.

Still, I think it's caused me to age a little prematurely. I have some of those empty nest-feelings you see in your folks. You know, like, "Hey, it wouldn't hurt to call your ol' man once in a while." I don't actually say that, but I feel it sometimes.

No need, I didn't go overboard.  Christmas Day is low key in the jingle.household.  Gift opening in the morning, chilling and 'playing' with said gifts in the afternoon, jingle.mother-in-law over for dinner, and more chilling.  We watched some home videos of when jingle.kids were babies (it's always a good chuckle), and then some of shows we got as a family for Christmas gifts.

Big ticket item for the kids was they each got an iPad - iPad Pro for jingle.son so he has a drawing tablet too; iPad air for jingle.daughter with 64GB, because she loves her music and movies.  New iPhone 6 for mrs.jingle... so Apple did ok by me this Christmas.  Sony's gonna get some of my dough today - gonna go pickup a PS4, and more playing with our gifts.

The 'sleep in' was glorious.  The cat wailed at 6:30... she's all confused when no one is up, because jingle.kids are usually up for school on weekday, and I'm usually up early on weekends.  She's old, and virtually blind/deaf, so when she wails, it could wake the dead.

It's related to this. The last character that hasn't been revealed has a clock in the background. It just spiraled from there, I think.

Prime can be shared among families as well. So if you and the Queen both regularly order from Amazon or watch movies on Prime, etc. you can both get the benefits for the one annual fee. I think our annual membership was $75.00, but I wouldn't swear to it.

I never hear jokes about John Holmes 30.48 cm penis.

That's because it's 34cm

Mother Nature needs a hard, swift, cunt-punch.  I felt like I was shovelling cement.  There was more water than snow.  Helped out the neighbours, and man... the extra $$$ to get a THREE stage snow-thrower just paid for itself.

Jingle I propose a trade, I come up and shovel some snow and you can come down here and sweat your balls off because it's 32C here.

Careful what you offer.  This is the bottom of my driveway at the moment:

And it's not the light and fluffy shit.  That's mostly water, and that one 'boulder' in the middle is about waist high.

Still want to trade?

Chad,

It's good to hear that you value the 3-stage snow blower. I've got my eye on a Cub Cadet 3-stage because my Troy-built 2-stage is getting long in the tooth and I seem to be fighting it more than it helps me. I never liked the plastic chute anyway. Once the spring sales show up I'll get more serious about replacing it.

That's exactly the one I bought - 26in.  My Yard Machines that I'd had for about 12 years wasn't cutting it, so we bit the bullet and got the 3-stage.  Worth every penny as far as I'm concerned now.  I could see two of the neighbour's having trouble because their 2-stage blowers weren't doing much, and getting clogged because it was more slush than snow.  Mine cut thru it easily, and was still throwing it about 15 feet for the most part.

In German, Wednesday is actually the only day of the week to end on a different letter than all the other days, because every other day ends in "-tag", which means "day", but Wednesday is "Mittwoch", which translates to "middle of the week".

Chad stay home.  I'd rather punch myself in the nuts than see that movie.


Blob, when I fell asleep at the wheel and got into an accident that was the wake up call.  On average I was awake 47 minutes of the hour.  There are 4 stages of R.E.M sleep.  the 4th does all the repair for the brain.  You can wake right up or be in the 1st stage which you're awake but don't know it.

You stop breathing because your throat's walls touch.  The mechanism for the body is to snore and open up the passage to breath.  So it knocks you out of the early stages of R.E.M. sleep.  Without it you're tired, you can't focus and some don't breath at all which is very dangerous and leads to death.

You can be 150 and gain 5 pounds and it would affect you or 350 and go to 400.  It depends on the structure of your throat.  If you feel sluggish all the time then you might have to do the study.  Got to say though it is not fun. 200 wires gooped up to you with this big harness of wires.  They have you sleep in a room with a red light like your on red alert. It's for the night camera.

I've been meaning to get a sleep study done because I'm the poorest sleeper at night but then drift off at random times during the day, even when driving. Or I can sleep 10 hours at night, wake up, go sit on the couch and start passing out.  Something isn't right.

You can be 150 and gain 5 pounds and it would affect you or 350 and go to 400.  It depends on the structure of your throat.  If you feel sluggish all the time then you might have to do the study.  Got to say though it is not fun. 200 wires gooped up to you with this big harness of wires.  They have you sleep in a room with a red light like your on red alert. It's for the night camera.

I've been meaning to get a sleep study done because I'm the poorest sleeper at night but then drift off at random times during the day, even when driving. Or I can sleep 10 hours at night, wake up, go sit on the couch and start passing out.  Something isn't right. 

I'd be doing that sooner rather than later if you're drifting off while driving.

I waited too long already. It's why I'm currently going through the New Jersey court system. I was swerving between lanes, the cops saw me, arrested me, and so I'm still dealing with the drama surrounding that.

You have to find a spot that is comfortable.  I'm a stomach sleeper so as you can imagine, it was tough at first but you find a position that works.  If you do the study (John it sounds like exactly I went through so set up an appointment right away) they have different style masks that you try and do another sleepover making sure you have the right style of mask that works for you.

So the D-Box was cool.  Is it something I'd do all the time?  Nope. Certain films it works and this is one.  My issue is they have to rumble all the time on silly things. The battles scenes and the flight scene it totally enhances the scenes. 

It reminded me of the Star Tours at Disney in the movements.  Overall very cool but not something I'd do very much.  It cost the same as I-Max around here

Yes I can't wait for February to be over and it can start getting warmer.

I've decided not to get another mobile phone contract when this one is up and go

for a sim only plan which will save me about £20-30 a month.

Also I don't use the heating in Spring and Summer so not paying for gas will also save

about £20 a month. I can spend the dough on other things :)

I'm not getting rid of my phone entirely. Just not getting a contract. If you keep the same phone and just get a SIM - it's about £10 - £20 a month instead of £30 - £50.

Plus I don't use hot water to wash up and my shower is electric so I don't need heating for most of the year. :)

Victoria and I have gone back and forth about taking a cruise. I feel like I'd be bored after two days.

I couldn't think of a worse vacation than a cruise.

My aunt/uncle go on so many cruises. Last year they had a cruise booked right after they both went to the doctor to get tested for cancer, and put off the follow up tests until after the cruise, then came back and both had to deal with that, then to make themselves feel better they booked another two week cruise right after that. And they've just booked another 6 week cruise. There was another time where my aunt was looking for a job, but had already booked a 5 week cruise soon, which understandably did not work in her favour trying to get a job to have 5 weeks off immediately. :lol

Mrs. P and I went on a Viking River Cruise in October that started in Basel Switzerland and finished in Amsterdam. It was fantastic and as King said, it sometimes felt like a dream...still does. The very last word I would use to describe this cruise would be boring and if I did, it would be a lie. I needed a few days off just to recover from the cruise.

I know ocean cruises are different due to more water-time between stops. I don't really know you well Chino, but I don't think you're giving yourself enough credit. I find it difficult to believe that someone with your intelligence and imagination would be bored.

Just some thoughts.

" FORCE AWAKENS #1 MOVIE OF ALL TIME "

Yeah in the US only.  BoxOfficeMojo is one of my favourite websites - but they're so US-centric. You can get worldwide grosses but not much else. Bit frustrating really.

Generally - movies make 66% of their gross internationally so the US is not even the biggest market for any movie.

If a film makes 1% of it's gross in the US and is absolutely enormous internationally - it gets called a flop. :|

But you made 10x your budget back but you only care about the 1% you made back domestically ?!

Am I missing something ?

I have to go out to 191st St in the Bronx today. They sent some jackass to check the equipment last night. He said the circuit is good but didn't bring a spare CSU/DSU with him to replace what he claims is bad equipment. WTF! If you're told to go out to a site to check equipment, common sense dictates to bring a spare just in case. These guys have been here over ten years and know less than I do, and I haven't even been here two years yet. Secondly, I don't trust his readings from when he checked the circuit because the readings he gave don't seem optimal for the CSU/DSU to run, so I'm testing them again.  Anyway, I digress...

It really doesn't matter, especially if they didn't adjust for inflation. I'm not sure how it is now but back when Titanic was listed as the biggest grossing film of all time, some site adjusted that for inflation and it would up that Gone With The Wind was the highest grossing film ever. I'm sure that's not the case now, but it's still a meaningless statistic if not applied properly.

It IS the biggest global market.  The US gross is always bigger than any other country's gross.  Note that it is normally divided into two divisions: US and global. 

Even in your generalized example - if 66% of a movie's total gross is international, that means that 34% is from the US, while the other 66% is ALL THE OTHER COUNTRIES PUT TOGETHER.  With Hollywood movies, no other single country comes close to that number.

Also, boxofficemojo is a US site, talking about mostly US-produced films, the largest single market for which is the US.  It kind of makes sense for it to be US-centric, so I'm not even sure what the problem is.

Morning, folks.

I know what you mean, King. I have more work than I'd like (at the moment) but I guess that's what brings the money in?

I'm getting so tired of the rat-race... I'm going to double my efforts to prep for retirement. Mrs. P will be finished with school in a 1-1/2 years and eligible for retirement from her job in 2 years. If I can get the house paid off by then, I could work 20 hours a week at a golf course or something and be just dandy.

It's been a struggle of late.  I'm having such a hard time filling in spots and temps are not reliable.  It gets stressful sometimes when you don't even know if these dummies will even show up.  Talk about blowing an opportunity.

Morning, Prog!

King, if I told you that you could retire right now with a pension equal to 80% your salary, would you do it? Would you be concerned about being bored? If so, would you continue to work...sorta double dip, as they say? Or would you take a chance on a venture that you've always wanted to do but never had the time for...like start a microbrewery in your Ma's name?

Just mussing.

It's time for my yearly foray out of my thread to promote my radio show here.

www.wpapu.com

Over the next two Wednesdays I'll be doing 4 hour wrap-ups of 2015, and these year end shows are always some of the best.

Dates: Dec. 30 and Jan. 6.

Time: 4-8pm Central, 5-9pm Eastern, 10pm-2am UTC.

Hopefully see a few of you over the next two weeks. :)

Tonight's version of this starts in just under 2.5 hours. Looking forward to seeing you fine folks then.

Forgot about this here, but the 2nd half of this is tonight, and has already started! www.wpapu.com :D

I bought The Witcher 3 for PS4 a week ago, and this is totally me.

I guess it's a matter of adjustment, but I am so used to playing games with a mouse & keyboard. It's so frustrating moving around with a controller instead.

" People keep commenting that the double bass part by lars was added to dvd only. But if thats true why did the crowd react so hard after that part? Also why didn't they fix kirks god awful solo if they were fixing lars drumming up for him? lol. "

That DVD is *clearly* overdubbed and fixed to within an inch of it's life. Metallica just don't play like that. :lol

So, you're saying that the controls for Witcher aren't good with k&m... how about Metal Gear V?

I'm a huge kb + mouse fanboy, it's what I grew up with and only recently got into console gaming but The Witcher just feels so much better with a controller, I've never come across a game (racing games aside) that felt right on a controller except this one.

As for MGS, I'm playing that with kb + mouse. It defaults to a controller but I think it's much better with a kb.
