post #112051 of 168624

Just finished The World is Beautiful

 

There are a few problems with it. Stemming from the mix of deep elements to light heared situations, and its deus ex machina. However, I think that this anime does it well and in a way that makes it acceptable.

 

There are many times in novels that stuff needs to happen just because. And in that a media series can't really show everything.

 

Some anime don't do this well, but I think that this is a decent exception.

 

Anyway, I'm liking it

Excuse me?
Deus ex machina? "Stuff that needs to happen just because"?
What are you referring to here? Did we watch different episodes?

Well you have a good eye there miceblue, because Mr Amano is the guy that does the designs for FF. http://tinyurl.com/yzjrhyp

 

 

This is too hard because his name has the word schiit in it lol.

It doesn't improve compression so much as allow you to use higher levels of compression because you can "get away with it", if that makes any sense.

Deus Ex Machina:
Random ability use all the time despite originally saying that she had to love the place before she could do it and that she had to have special circumstances.

Escaping from the thingy at the bottom by the nick of time.

and all the sudden change of hearts and realizations.

Not to mention that the sudden uber lovely dovey 'I want him to be my husband' type of thought that kind of just popped out of nowhere.

She said that she needs all this to come up with a song. Know that has it, she can sing it whenever she feels its appropriate.

That was a bit convenient, yes.

In this episode, only the evil priest dude seems to have had a change of heart. Not really sure if he was just faking it though.

Maternal instincts to the max.

I may have skipped the first part.

Ultra very convenient. 

Not just a change of heart, but a major change of 'acting'. In where with a sudden realization of info, the priest woman and evil priest dude were all so shocked etc etc....that doesn't happen

,.....dayum instincs

Akuma no Riddle

 

Show could be a lot better but still fine

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
My biggest qualm with the show is in how the people handle each other. Haru knows what is going on, and everyone in the class does as well. But the anime literally gives you SoL, and then boom, black card, and then stupid Haru does something, and the assasin loses at the end.

Not to mention, the MC blue haried girl is hopelessly unprepared so often. She knows schiit is comming, but still allows her to go into a dark library and leave the door open or something? Not to mention, the other assassin girl pegged her entire operation on the secret library that she didn't even know about before? What if they didn't go to the library? huh?

 

Basically, it's a decent show, but its conviction and execution is severely off.

Is everyone still acting like the biggest, most psychotic badass murder person ever?

Do yourself a favour and watch Nisekoi. Never disappoints.

Not as much no.

 

 

Yep, about to watch it :D

http://www.vanityfair.com/business/2014/06/apple-samsung-smartphone-patent-war.print

 

Very interesting history of the patent war on both sides.

 

There are no sources present but some general details are well known (not that that means it doesn't need to be cited). Anyhow, my opinion unbiased on it is all dependent on what 'you' even care to think of it.

 

Samsung did the right thing. The right thing being what would increase market share, profits, world renknown with the least damage. They did it brilliantly with pre-laid plans and control of markets etc etc. I found it awfully inspiring actually. The extent to which Samsung embraced the principle of absolute dominion.

Amen, brother. That's why I'm gonna try and get two 4TB HDDs over the summer so I can have a redundant backup of all my animus. :tongue:

 

Yeah, I getcha. I still won't buy Seagate, at the very least because I'll get crap from some of my WD fanboy friends. :tongue:

 

Lol, somehow I had the feeling you wouldn't... Nobody is gonna try and explain the movie here though? I figured at least one person here would have seen it and understood it or looked up how to interpret it online!

 

It's on sale!~

 

Heh, good luck! 

Ain't got no fanboyism here for the two companies. 

 

They are both old geezers in the field. Keeping prices high, not driving as much innovation as they could be, and buying out all the market. They are the invisible hand.

True, maybe we need some obscure Chinese company that charges half the price and still has good reliability to shake up the market, kind of like what I think may start happening soon in the smartphone market!

Wow, that looks pretty sweet!

Show us some pictures when it's done being built, lol. To be honest, each of the two fans is almost as big as the mobo, and the power supply is about that big too. Almost seems like a waste to have such a small mobo in a relatively large case... (shrug)

And why do you upload to Tinypic btw? I can't click over and see larger size images XD

Hmm, not really...

Basically you can apply higher levels of compression and not notice it?

post #112064 of 168624

I dunno I've used tinypic for ages, I feel bad loading up the headfi server with pics that wont matter in a few days I guess. Remember, this case can hold 6 3.5" drives + 2 2.5" drives. When I put the cooler, video card, and drive cage in there, you'll see that there is barely any room to spare :)

 

 

Yes, that's what I meant with the compression.

It seems so biased, like the author is blaming Samsung for the downfall of Sharp and Pioneer.
