Sci-Fi (and other genre) Movies & TV Series

An'shur wrote:
Qr Bbpost but I harshly dislike Farce Awakens and Last Jedi. Rogue one and Solo were watchable. I like Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, too bad it was cut short without having a proper conclusion.

I'm glad somebody shares the same sentiments as me 8-).

What are your own personal ways of dealing with anxiety and depression?

Qr Bbpost You might pick up a copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. It might give you a little insight into the state of being human. I believe a lot of anxiety and depression is because of the Pressures we create for ourselves and Society creates for all of us.

Amen to that brother.

In actual fact, performance issues in games sometimes come from the limitations of the game engine, not the hardware. Every game you install on your computer does NOT use all your machine's available memory, but only allocates a small percentage of if as directed by its code, usually 10 or less giga...

Qr Bbpost Yes I remember a star trek episode where planet vulcan is destroyed

I'm pretty sure that was the 2009 JJ Abrams movie set in an 'alternate universe'. But as I said, those movies don't actually exist, so I know nothing  :?.

Image Dump

Is the auto-exposure setting realistic? I always used it, just because I thought it made planets look more photorealistic when compared to NASA photographs of the solar-system's planets, specifically high albedo ones.

22929 Fairly certain Bethesda are renown for their terrible coding Yes they are. Patches can help, but when loading large outside environs, Bethesda games will dramatically drop in fps, freeze and even crash completely, despite being run on top-notch machines.   22902 I will wait a while and see ho...

Same, but for me it's motorcycle upkeep.

22921 Vulcan in one of the Star Trek movies I do not acknowledge the existence of those movies :lol:. But I did watch that one before I knew better. Am I the only one who thinks those smug-bug Vulcan's had it coming? Probably. That aside, I find it cool that a planet was found around 40 Eridani, si...

I too like this new take on the interactive map. The old one was indeed way too cluttered for much use aside from small-scale stuff. I'm glad that there has been an update addressing this.

More theoretical physics mind-benders :D. Don't be fooled by the title of this lecture, it's not a psuedoscienctific rant. I found the end conclusion to be much more eloquent. 2DIl3Hfh9tY Also, if possible, look into the Smolin–Susskind debate , and the Susskind-Hawking battle (the latter recorded i...

What are your own personal ways of dealing with anxiety and depression?

Being out in nature and taking some time to appreciate it can also help. If you have not already, take up astronomy. It is very relaxing and does not require all the bells and whistles the ads tell you it does. All you need are some binoculars. I also found bicycling can be good for treating stress,...

Yeah, the morale of the story here is just to do your research! Then do it again. And Again. Watch as many reviews as possible, then read through the websites, and be aware that some reviewers can be sponsored by the very product they are supposedly criticizing (not saying its the case here, but I'v...
