    Signature. Yay or nay?

    A friend of mine has recently discovered that I post on this forum. Her first comment after reading some of my posts was "Why do you always sign your name? What's the point?"

    I found this Flash game online today, and thought I'd share: Elf Zapper. I managed to get up to 247th position! (Oh, and this is pretty cool too: Send an Elf, but not a game.) Adam

    Pirates of the Caribbean Wins VSDA Best Transfer Award? Say What?

    I just read this in a press release for the VSDA DVD Technical Awards here and I'm a little surprised. This disc is OK, but has edge enhancement and compression artefacts galore and certinly wouldn't be a contender for 'best' transfer in my books. There are vastly better transfers even among...

    Mask of Zorro Superbit - Visible Layer Switch?

    I just got around to watching this disc, and noticed it had a non-seamless layer change (at 69:02). This is the first Superbit disc I've seen without a seamless change. Has anyone else seen visible layer switches on other Superbit discs or is this just a fluke? Adam
