Summer struck my area hard. In the form of a squall packing golfball-sized hail. My car's sporting some new dents....

There's nearly nightly chatter on the shoutbox, but peak times seem to be while I'm at work.

Well I guess it's good. Only more important posts (PS related) really show up. :P

Hi! Back after...what, four years (following a 5 yearish hiatus)? I've recently been replaying PSIV and Skies of Arcadia and thought I'd drop in. Spent one hell of a time trying to figure out passwords for email accounts and forum accounts that I haven't used in years.

General Discussion is not dead. I will see to it.... um... anyway. I'm thinking about buying some more pickles. At four calories per pickle, they're the key to my skinniness. That, and I have the metabolism of ten thousand lanky teens.

I'm tired of closed-minded 'gamers' shunning the Wii.

Oh, I have a wii. Only a few games. Skyward Sword, Brawl, Wario Ware, Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World... Nintendo is still king in my opinion, so I'm right with you there.

Tell me about it. Only lack in Wii is a proper display connection. Ok. You can get a VGA adapter, but that won't work on all games.


Oh and another thing in my mind just now:

Hypernova explosion - If you concentrated all the energy that the sun will put out over its entire 9-billion-year life into a tenth of a second, then you would have some idea of the brightness.

.. That is just sick! A sick amount of energy released. And here we are on Earth complaining that we don't have enough energy... If only...

Do you mean a proper connection for a computer display? It's meant to be played on a CRT TV after all.

As far as I know, it doesn't have an HDMI port for TVs. I can tell you from experience the difference in resolutions can make a huge difference in some games.

Just exactly. Made for CRT makes it a bit unattractive.

MAGNETAR

Postby Zucca » Sun Jun 03, 2012 4:39 pm

http://astronomycentral.co.uk/magnetar-throws-a-spanner-in-the-works wrote:In the zoo that is the universe, there is a thing called a magnetar…a vicious beast. Even at a distance of 1,000 kilometres away one would kill you with it’s colossal magnetic field, ripping your flesh due to the diamagnetism of water. At a distance half way to the Moon, a magnetar would wipe your credit card. They are a rare type of neutron star left over from the death of a large mass star in a supernova, and have a very high gravitational field. They are only tens of kilometres across, spin faster than a kitchen blender, and have the mass of the Sun squeezed down tightly into something the size of your town or city.  Their magnetic field is colossally powerful, millions of times more intense than any electromagnet humankind can ever make. Star quakes can happen on their surface, disrupting the magnetic field and releasing lethal gamma rays…the most deadly form of electro-magnetic radiation that exists.

It's not the Wii's fault that LCD monitors/TVs are horrible and are increasingly getting rid of traditional ports.

HDMI in particular is yet another attempt at DRM and I don't like it.
