    “I’ll explode when I want to explode! Oh look, a space probe! Target practice!” 😀

    It’s a standard Dish Network dish. It’s pretty banged up and looks like a tree had fallen on it so it may not be usable (the shape is all out of whack). Won’t know until I fix a wire to it and plug it into a radio, though. For cooler weather!

    Lorcana seems to be pretty popular. Perhaps it’s worth including it into the first post?

    Thinking about buying a couple of Pokemon starter decks. Never did play the game, just liked the artwork. Would be a slight change but I’m kind of in the mood to try a game that’s a little less intense than Yu-Gi-Oh. Not that I plan to quit playing, just want…[Read more]

    Trying to do some research on plasma confinement for some ideas bouncing around the dusty processor and Wikipedia’s article leaves a little to be desired: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plasma_confinement

    It just links to the different types instead of providing a general overview. The overview would be really helpful so I had a better handle on…[Read more]

    Sorry! Looks like that image was removed for whatever reason. Here’s a new one!

    Yeah, the A/C is set to turn on at 80F. The humidity is so bad, though, that it’s still very high outside even at 72F. It’s horrible!

    Great! Yeah, I need to do that with my lamps. As I use them, the screws holding the shafts together and the one holding the shade…[Read more]

    Have they changed the scaling for Pizza Planet, the only one available here is the original, which, as you know has a rather strong resemblance to the one at Tomorrowland.
    Don’t have the A/C on every day then? Over here on hot summer days, it gets tuned on from around 2pm to 6pm, really does make a difference in the evening.
    The Soga trollies…[Read more]

    It may be able to choose in which direction to send out solar flares or coronal mass ejections.

    The same argument might apply to earth and other planets, where to place those unruly hotspots for best results in achieving mayhem (ahem) peace on earth! 😛
    What kind of dish do you have?

  • I have the entire series of Flying Circus on DVD! 😀

    Could also use it to mail a letter! 😛

    Have to explore Tubi again.
    Never knew Stephen King tried his hand at directing, bad luck with an Italian crew, should have just stuck with fixing the script though.
    The idea of Mansion of the Doomed could have been extended to animals, a real hoot if the vision was restored with the eyes of a regular barn owl, for instance.
    Yeah, those kinds of…[Read more]

    The sleeves came in and they work like a charm! They’re a much better fit than the basic standard sized sleeves over a regular Japanese sized sleeve with much less movement. 🙂

    Added a (very) short blurb on card grading

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Films & TV Shows in the forum Discussion 1 week, 1 day ago

    Grandmother’s House was pretty good. It relies mostly on story telling with little violence, language, or sex which made it a nice breath of fresh air. The star attraction? It features Uncle Leo! 😀

    I’ve updated the first post with a list of card databases for the big three TCGs 🙂

    On April 21, 2024 at 8:29 pm Bob Marley said Some notes on double sleeving: I’ve been using Japanese size sleeves from Dragon Shield enclosed by Dragon Shield standard size clear matte sleeves but the fit isn’t tight enough so the inner sleeve damages the outer sleeve when it jostles around. Sadly, my LGS doesn’t carry Japanese size outer sleeves…

    Mansion of the Doomed wasn’t bad, if a tad repetitive. Eventually, they go into a montage of kidnapping and harvesting but I feel as though they overdid it a tad. Would have been much better if it focused more on the actual transplant research, like The Island of Dr Moreau,than the constant stream of victims.

    Old, banged up satellite dish acquired. Let the hunt begin!

    Really dislike Summer. The heat and humidity really make it difficult to sleep and do things during the day. Even at 0500, it’s still close to 80°F outside. 🙁

    Rewatched Killer Klowns the other day. It pretty much speaks for itself. It’s a blast! 😀

  • Classic takes, forgot all about Agatha Clouseau’s inspired script. 😀
    Right now, streaming Screw, a series based on the comings and goings of staff in a UK prison. In one episode, the head of the wing decides to install an amnesty box for the prisoners to voluntarily relinquish various items of contraband:

    In the future, I may skip the firmware upgrades if they’re going to be that much hassle 😛

    You can most likely skip the monitor’s HDR settings. It’s different from the old style HDR, which I’ll call software HDR. The new HDR is monitor based and the programs that take advantage of it are few and far between. Older programs, save from five years…[Read more]

    Great, well know we all will know to take backups before upgrades of various flavours – firmware, infirmware, brainrackware. 😛
    The last two apply here as a result of not going to specsavers (not in your country though). Thought the second DP was an HDMI, now wonder it didn’t fit, and the second screen on the TV works of course! 🙂
    Tried out the…[Read more]
