Re: What grinds your gears?

I really hate how cheap luggage is vs how much it costs. Some plastic, a little bit of aluminum and some "durable" fabric and I have to pay $150 bucks for an item that tears at the zipper the 2nd time I use it? Had to duct tape and superglue it back together to keep my stuff from falling o...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Thanks Lotha :D I occasionally read "if you were looking for a cheap hobby, this isn't it", but honestly, unless you're gonna take up by the numbers needlepoint I feel like most things we're interested in require investments in time and money to master. Hopefully it will be well spent! @Ti...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Almost right! Ninety minutes of exposure time, not 1 single exposure. For the signal to noise ratio, one 5 minute exposure is equivalent to stacking five 1 minute exposures so you can stack as much time as you need to get the details you want. What you're saying is 100% correct that over time you lo...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Straight up, it's not great. I'm primarily going after deep space objects (DSO) first because that's where my interests lie, but typically planetary telescopes are all about large apertures first and then longer focal lengths that can take advantage of the higher resolution and tons of light that ap...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Awesome shot! Do you do it straight from the camera or through a telescope for that? Moar galaxies. Is this a good time of year for Andromeda itself? Thanks! I mount my ancient Canon 450D to the back of a telescope with a 2" T-Adapter then control the exposures with my laptop. This was about 1...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Thanks :D My car is from 2010. I'd like to postpone getting a new one till at least 2020 although the interior is getting pretty seedy. I've gotten new tires for it a year or two ago and I replaced the battery for the first time this year. I'll probably need to replace the accessory belt soon and th...

Just on a TABN downswing but it looks like I'm on an upswing now the past few days! I've been trying to get into astrophotography the past few months learning about setups, the physics behind it and the tools for image processing afterwards. About a week ago I took my first astroshoot after a few fa...

Re: First world crisises

Does anyone know what the handle colors of various coffee pots mean? Black I assume is regular, orange is decaf, purple idk. I accidentally poured the purple into my mug and it smells like cinnamon. Normally they just put water in it and someone didn't this time so now I'm wondering if I'll be stay...

Re: ALTER BRIDGE - Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities

I think our foreigners are stoked for all the B-Sides in one place. I usually get my albums at Best Buy though so I've heard all the b-sides and I've seen enough of their live shows and live dvds where buying another one is kinda like why. I'm pretty much just interested in the 2 tracks I've never h...

Re: What grinds your gears?

Singles - AB records has to pay for our own radio. I know a lot of folks think they know how it works BUT they don't. :) a top ten single cost $120,000 cash up front - minimum. Where does that money go? Is that the cumulative amount that gets disseminated to each radio station (prob not) or does it...

Re: What grinds your gears?

My MA thesis was about king Arthur :-) I heard that King Arthur was kinda like an old school superhero and it wasn't until a French (I think) writer got involved decades / centuries later that Lancelot porked the Queen, betraying Arthur. The person that said this said it was immensely frustrating b...

Re: Myles's solo album

More of what we already know but it sounds a little more concrete in his head now that he won't be releasing it any time soon: Myles also talked about his decision to begin work on his second solo album, even thought the first one has yet to see the light of day. "The first one, a lot of it was...

Re: The Star Wars Thread (The Last Jedi Teasers Inside)

I'm super meh about this. I'd like to say I'll wait to see it in the dollar theater but they'll milk it for an extra few months before the standard turnaround time so I'll probably see it in the regular one. Loved Rogue One but I'm so disinterested in continuing the Skywalker storyline especially af...

Re: What music drives you nuts?

I don't listen to much pop, especially because it gets played for 18-24 months on the radio, but it bugs me when there are decent generic ones that get ruined by 3rd verse rap sequences. Sometimes I look up the original versions especially since the rap verses rarely have anything to do with the son...

Re: Tremonti pt #4

I'm actually excited for Mark to do this with Tremonti vs AB. ODR was mostly Mark and if he's learning towards a greater emphasis on sappy/heartfelt/less hard (per the article) for one of the albums we might see a fresh take on that with everything he has under his belt now. Especially since we know...

Well, new Mass Effect looks like a disappointment :( What's the deal with that one? I saw people making fun of botched character animations, but are there more problems than that? Turns out Bioware didn't make it per se but sluffed it off on a very minor dev who might not even have had a full title...

Re: Video Game Bonanza!

I've been playing The Witcher 3 for a few months at this point. Usually a few hours every couple of days. Checked my save file and I'm up to 80 hours which is probably closer to 85 if you count the times I reloaded a save due to dying or redid a quest if I didn't like the outcome. I have to say, I h...
