Anyone want to start a petition for a Sky anime channel?
I will support if they do subs rather than dubs. I don't really like dubs because most of the emotion is lost during translation. I watched Gundam UC in dub recently, it was almost unwatchable.
i think it depends on the show, guyver has some really good dubs in my opinion, it all depends on the voice actors
Problem is i have no idea how you would create a petition, or how you would get sky to see it
Its fine for simple anime, but once you start to watch crazier things you will lose a lot of meaning. You cannot watch Monty Python in Russian, it just doesnt work.
i know, that's why i said it should depend on the anime, you can't get Dubs for some though so it would have to be subs, overall i think we should make them show anime, at the moment film4 shows anime occasionally but only like 2-3 times a month
They wouldn't even have to get a new channel, 99% sure Sky family could be changed to sky Anime after 9pm and no one would notice
I don't like sky they did the opposite to us, they tried to increase prices. Fat chance so when we moved into this house we never took them up on their offer to move our connection for a fee.
I like watching programs on bbc iplayer. Yesterday i watched a program on Hawking and how he did a u turn on one of his proposed theories after 30 years and said he was basically wrong. I watch a lot of other stuff like Mock the Week and Top Gear though.
Otaku is like a Japanophile in western terms, someone who is into anime and or cosplay that sort of stuff Japanese stuff mainly. It was originally an almost mocking term in Japan about people who stayed in and had obsessive interests but people started to use it in reference to other things.
but would you subscribe to sky if they did an anime channel?
Mock of the week is just pwnage
This is why you don't do subs/dubs. Meaning gets changed in translation.
Lost in translation?
Not exactly lost, because it gets modified/ chopped and changed.
well if you can show me somewhere i can learn Japanese, then no subs/dubs, but until then, as tekken 6 once said
*actually i have been thinking about trying out this. but it's a bit expensive, on the other hand they've been around for years now and there's a six month money back guarantee, so there's not much to lose -->http://www.rosettastone.co.uk/learn-japanese
Start with subs, and pay attention to what they say. 100 Hrs in you should be able to understand basics. Also, get your school to contact the Japanese cultural centre and get a teacher, they might be able to teach basics for free. Dubs will not be helping you to understand any Japanese.
Japanese cultural centre?
That one I think. I am not sure.
I read subs and dubs and got excited,then i realised i was thinking of a different context
any of you guys had a motherboard thats slow to POST? it just dawned on me to check the PSU voltages but it just seems strange,erratic i guess.
Sometimes it will post as normal and other times it might take 5 minutes to get into bios...
So, from their website at least, these people would fund, or at least subsidise, and provide provisions for, the education of Japanese language
That sounds good, i tried to get them to teach parkour, and they said no due to lack of funding, so with subsidy, i might be able to get Japanese out of them
You can cut it down significantly, by disabling unused controllers, if you disable the floppy controller, as well as any serial and parallel ports on your board, you can generally cut a few seconds of post.
EDIT:Anyone want a Core I7 laptop for £250 -->http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110723403927&clk_rvr_id=252226615661&_rdc=1 from the PC world ebay outlet
Yes i know this,i always disable pretty much all the legacy stuff aswell as anything i dont think would be used,
not to save time but just to keep the registry as minimal as possible-it helps with troubleshooting.
I will try the processor in another mobo,for its either the psu or the mobo i guess.
Oops....dealbreaker right there. otherwise it sounds good
it's good if your fourstaff or kieren, who need it for 'work' and have to 'use the i7's at Uni'
Indeed, but I still want to play my games. And I note sarcasm there, I don't "need" an i7, i7 is preferred otherwise you will be spending more time than necessary. It adds up when you have to repeat again and again to improve your code and make sure everything works.
i tried to use adobe after effects at uni of kent (went on some video editing thing with my friends) , that is by far the worst for computing power, even on a core 2 quad rendering took so long
that particular laptop got pretty bad reviews anyway.... Its madness that they kitted up up with a quad core and no dedicated GPU. not even a low/medium class one like an Nvidia GT130
Well looks like im not getting a new phone after all, just got knocked back on my previous address. The credit rating is fuck all to do with me, might do some phoning around.
why, think you've had your identity stolen or something?
