Re: Boonboomger 13 discussion thread

On reflection, this episode was a bit bipolar, tonally speaking. The initial setup is pure Sentai cheese: making cars with AI that you have to win over, the enemy's secret weapon is a song that whammies the rangers, farting pillows . But then the bot-on-bot combat was absolutely brutal by Super Sent...

Don't mention it.

After all, I have a vested self-interest in making sure your computer works; how else am I supposed to get my weekly fix of spandex-clad Japanese stunt actors beating up on each other? :lol:

Re: KR Gotchard 37 thread

I find myself in between Takenoko and Mxylv on this episode. While I don't agree that the direction fully made up for the weak writing, I do agree that the crew clearly did everything they could to spin gold from Gotchard's messy plot. It is an above-average episode in terms of directing, and even t...

Re: My harddrive died

Man, I don't even know what to say. Have you been hording bad luck over the years and have made the decision to cash it all out now? Anyhow, apologies I wasn't around to answer your initial question. Since it looks like you're going to need another motherboard, I may as well answer it. Just got a ca...

Re: My harddrive died

No problem. And sorry again that things haven't gone well. I'm the one that suggested this build, so I feel responsible for things breaking down.:|

Re: My harddrive died

Huh. So what's my next step? I've contacted the mb manufacturer. Do I wait and see if they fix/replace my mb or try buying a different brand? Assuming your motherboard truly is the culprit (it can be difficult to be 100% sure without swapping out the CPU/RAM), then yes, a new mobo is in your future...

Re: My harddrive died

And I imagine if it were the CPU or RAM, at least the system would try to post, right? Unfortunately, no. If it's any of those, then things will get screwy. A working mobo, CPU, and RAM are the bare minimum to even try to POST. On which note, you should strip the systems to the bare minimums. Just ...

Re: My harddrive died

Yeah, I think x265 encodes might be taxing on the hardware. I might need to be more careful about when and how often I do it It is. But it shouldn't be causing you issues. A proper system should be able to run at full-tilt for years . https://www.newegg.com/seasonic-focus-plus-850-gold-ssr-850fx-85...

Re: My harddrive died

Bloody hell, man. You can't catch a break. Most M.2 drives are a handful of watts. Even the most powerful ones are only around 12W or so right now . So another M.2 drive wouldn't put a significant dent in your PSU. The Hydro PTM PRO is a damn good PSU. I am surprised to hear that it died. What are y...

Re: Boonboomger 11 discussion thread

PS How much is P-Bandai selling the Boonboomger plush for? :lol: Believe it or not, they are not actually p-bandai exclusive, they're being sold in toy store and online for the relatively cheap price of 2200 each (still too much imo) https://www.shopnui.jp/shopbrand/ct456/ Ahh. So my suspicions wer...

Re: Boonboomger 11 discussion thread

Well that was a fun episode. Nothing too dire or serious goes on, even with the introduction of a new commander. But it's a pretty good distillation of Super Sentai, right up to the Red doing something to make the kids smile. I feel like the show is solidly settling in to a revolving door of command...

Re: KR Gotchard 35 thread

Out of all the actors in this show I'm really rooting for the Hades Sisters, especially Atropos, to get better roles/get popular. Atropos could really be another Ashida Mana if her agency sells her right For that matter, I think this is the first episode in the series without any appearance by any ...

Re: KR Gotchard 35 thread

The real adventure was the blatant moichandising we did along the way.

Though the fact that they're only charging ~$45 for it is admittedly less than I would have expected from Bandai.

Re: KR Gotchard 35 thread

>> Also, why is it they never had to attack the doomsday clock itself? It's a bit of a Chekhov's Bomb situation; I'm expecting it to either explode, or see the heroes defuse it. They did. They rider-kicked Arc-One into the clock, though it's a blink-and-you'll-miss it situation. Oh! That's what tha...

Re: KR Gotchard 35 thread

And Legend is finally done. Thank gorgeous goodness. It's not that it was a terrible episode by any means. But this entire arc has failed to give me a reason to care about it; it's basically one big side-show to promote someone who wasn't the main character. Also, why is it they never had to attack ...
