brownpau: Unbox is epic fail.
eddietor: it works fine with my tivo. :)
eddietor: bad quality? unreliable downloads?
brownpau: decent quality, decent downloads
eddietor: uber-restrictive drm?
brownpau: there was that
eddietor: why didn't you just buy the box set?
brownpau: season 3 box set isn't out yet
brownpau: but the first unbox install had no color but faded blue and faded yellow, and reds were changed to blue
brownpau: i reinstalled and then the colors came out right
brownpau: but the audio was kinda poor, so we had trouble understanding dialogue
brownpau: so i said 'oh i'll just turn on subtitles'
brownpau: there are no subtitles
brownpau: i mean, the audio doesn't seem to have any noticeable artifacts or noise, but we can't understand what anyone's saying, even loud
brownpau: we had to keep rewinding for dialogue. maybe bill adama just mumbles a lot.
eddietor: that was always weird for me.
eddietor: calling him "Bill Adama"
eddietor: on the one hand reaching for realism, on the other preserving a sci-fi name.
eddietor: at least Starbuck is a callsign.
eddietor: I would've shot myself if I heard someone say, "Mike Starbuck."
brownpau: Yeah I think they push the cultural/linguistic parallelisms between the Twelve Colonies and English-speaking US Americans a bit too far.
brownpau: But if they reach a 21st Century Earth and have Kara stand agape at a "Starbucks Coffee" I will LMAO.
Mike Huckabee does not overstay his welcome.

hacking the e-meter
dmd: so in 1999 there were these scientologists on campus at rutgers
dmd: doing e-meter shit
dmd: so i hooked up a battery and a relay and some wires
dmd: ran the wires down my sleeves to grounding bracelets
dmd: and went for an e-meter reading
dmd: every two seconds the relay pulled the current to -4.5V
dmd: for about half a second
dmd: the guy had no fucking clue what to do
dmd: eventually he decided I was "badly in need of his help"
dmd: but this after like ten minutes of franctically conferring with the two other guys that were there
dmd: and banging on the meter and shit
dmd: i bet i made that guy's week
dmd: he finally got to e-meter someone GENUINELY INFESTED WITH THETANS
