As a result of this we have also had to remove the 25% Lifetime Discount offer from the Barbarian Edition.

So, out of curiosity, why exactly? Because this seems more like a "The game is very popular, so we decided to charge more because we like money!" deal.
From what I can gather, this is a discount for hiring a server from PingPerfect, not a discount on the game.

Ah, that makes more sense then.

DS9/Voyager reasons for no HD are the same case as Babylon 5... All the effects composites are all done at NTSC resolution. Unlike TOS and TNG, none of the shows probably warrant the amount of budget required to create HD versions, especially since DS9 and Voyager started using CG for ships and such, it would require a massive amount of work.

It disappoints me still today that I'll only ever have bad quality Babylon 5 DVDs. The quality will look great for some of the shots (the ones with no effects), then turn to grainy low res for the composite/effect shots. It's especially bothersome when its cutting back and forth between two closeups while people talk and one is perfect and the other is crap.


Yeah, it's sad. I wish someone at CBS (or at ... shit, whoever owns the Bab5 rights) would put up a kickstarter. I mean, I don't THINK they'd get enough money, but it'd sure be interesting to see them try.

I bought all 7 TNG series, but I'll admit I waited until they hit like 40-50 bucks. I understand the work involved really necessitated CBS charge 100+ for them on release, but at the same time, few people are going to shell out that much money for a, let's admit it, 30 year old TV show, even if it looks significantly better.

The first season was amazing. The work done on the VFX shots was incredible, the details were incredible, the color, etc. But then season 2, it looked like they were already saying "Well, let's do it a bit cheaper." Planets all of a sudden went back to their old shitty blurry self of the 80s, some shots barely got touched up, etc. By season six, I'd see entire episodes where it looked like "all" they did (with respect for the incredible amount of work that still entailed) was re-cut the negative into 1080p.

I'd buy the DS9 set, and for sure I'd buy a Bab5 blu-ray set, but I don't think it'll ever be. Sad.

PLEASE! I need your help, guys! You're my only hope!

Is there any place anywhere within ~ 2 miles of you that has broadband? If so, and if you can get a direct line of sight, you could set up two Ubiquiti transmitter/receivers (one at your place and one at the place that has broadband) and transmit the signal that way. Apparently those things get ~ 300Mbps connection speed between them, so they should have little trouble relaying the signal.

A guy I somewhat know here in OK does that, he actually rents a small little shack for ~ 150 a month somewhere where he can get Cox, then he transmits that signal from there to his home with a pair of those transmitters. It seems to work pretty well.

It's not cheap, but it's an option.

In case a passenger or you were injured I wonder if you would be liable for injuries since you are aware of the recall?

So far, US law has not held people lawfully responsible for not getting a recall done.

I mean, don't get me wrong, it SHOULD, but it doesn't.

Managing Director Christoph Brandstaetter told The Local: "The house was totally booked with 180 guests, we had no other choice. Neither police nor insurance help you in this case."

You know what would have helped you? Spending more than zero dollars on security.

A fourth attempt, according to Brandstaetter, was foiled because of the IT security upgrades the organisation took following the third successful attack.

YOU DON'T SAY?!

I'm kind of surprised they're only investigating those five publishers. Every single publisher in existence does geo-blocking.

Yes, but it's actually the pork belly that's running low.

Besides, I'm a 'MERICAN, dammit! I DESERVE TO GO TO THE LOCAL BUTCHER AND BE ABLE TO GET A HUNDRED POUNDS OF FRESHLY CUT AND PEPPERED BACON FOR $1.99 A POUND!

Personally if Ryzen is even close to competitive I will probably build a new system with it. Just tired of Intel's lack of innovation and lack of price drops on it's chips. Getting fed up with Nvidia too.

Shit Nvidia has been improving very steadily over the years and the current gen was one of their best percentage boosts ever.

Remember the story the other day about the material that electricity can run through it without creating heat? It is going to take a breakthrough like that for us to see huge gains like 10ghz and more.

Best percentage boost? Huh? There are ZERO IPC improvements between Skylake and Kabylake, its all in the very marginal clockspeed increases which don't really matter for most enthusiasts since they already OC Skylakes in pretty much the same Ghz range as Oc'd kabylakes.

Kabylake is a total joke.

Read again, and maybe you'll note he said Nvidia. Not Intel.

Yeah, poor choice of words on my part. I meant when they hire Indians to come here to do the same work for half the pay, where they actually already have someone doing the job.

"We can't find someone with the skills" my effing ass.
