As you might or might not have noticed, I'm adding some canceled/ended shows to the site that you can use with the "stuff to watch" feature. If you want some show like that added - please request it in the forum and it'll be added. I'm working on the user_profile thingie, so expect that soon. Meanwhile, have you all heard that there will be a BSG spin-off? Not to mention the Titanic one ;)
While we're on the short-animations-that-won-an-Oscar theme,
here's another one of my favorites. This one's even older - '97,
but I think you'll enjoy it even more than the last ...
(Arashi gets the credit for reminding me about it)
It's not that of a news thing, and has been around since like 2004, but if you haven't seen it ...
It's a short animation movie, that (if I remember correctly) won an Oscar back in the day ... Anywho, enjoy!
Tonight I'm finally gonna add the feature for the site to have
canceled/ended shows so you can use 'em in your "stuff to watch"
system. I also wanna add a "profile" kinda feature. Please tell me
what ya think about that? (for example, the nicknames in comments
would be clickable, and if you click it, there'll be a list of the
shows that this person watches ...) Probably a messaging system also?
btw1 - some user suggested I show you this (it's not half bad) ...
JUMP n' MOVE n' JUMP n' MOVE n' STOP!!
btw2 - V still sux :)
I found out what was wrong with the stuff to watch.
Now noone should have the problem of his settings not
being remembered by the site (flat/tree view that is).
Oh, and another thing - yesterday I went to see "V for Vendetta".
Don't repeat my mistake - don't go anywhere NEAR that movie ...
I usually don't like anime and such, but this kinda grabbed my
attention. Dunno why, or what it is ... I hope you'll enjoy it as
much as I did (and maybe in the same strange way I did) ;)
Btw, about the "stuff to watch" feature. It's supposed to remember
your view once you select it (tree or flat) and keep it until you
change it. Please tell me if it works that way for you, because I get
some feedback from users that they have to change it every time
(which would be a bug in the system, which I'm unable to reproduce:( )
Tv.com did a layout change recently, which messed up the gathering
of the episodes schedules, big time. As tv.com is still the most
accurate and up to date source for this info, I'm trying to
adjust the next-episode.net scrips so they can gather the info
from the new layout.
There is a huge problem though.
They've removed the season/episode number info from the episode listing.
And now, there's only a Prod # (which I can't quite get the meaning of).
So, for some shows (like Lost), the Prod # is something meaningful
(for example "101" - representing season 1, episode 1), while for
others (like Invasion) the Prod # is something strange like "2T6951".
I'm kinda hoping someone will come up with an idea on how to bypass this problem?
The only solution I came up with is to go through every single show, every season,
and every episode and get the season/episode# info from there.
Unfortunately, although this will be done automatically, it has to be done at least
once a day (so the series info will be up to date) and it will take huuuuuuuuge
amount of time (and bandwidth on my server).
Any ideas? A way to switch back to old tv.com's layout
(with the season and episode # in the episodes_listing) ?
Have you tried juggling?
I have, because it unusually looks very simple when you're watching
someone else doing it. Well this guy's juggling doesn't seem easy
at all. As the video description says it, "Amazing" is the word ...
So I'm supposed to update this thing again 'cause Santah's acting like he's busy. All he's actually doing is exploring the deepest caverns of his nose. No, really.
Anyway, here's something funny I stumbled on the other day. It's not of the OMGWTF quality, but I laughed when I saw it the first time. I don't want to spoil it, so we'll continue in the comments. DON'T CLICK THEM before you see it :)
I can watch these all day long ...(actually, I already did :) )
I say - who needs video clips anyways? Just put on those girls
and whatch the ratings/sells/etc. Or maybe it's just me?
Anywho, it should be a good way to start your day :)
(at least for the guys)
Btw, who wants a ride?
Sorry for not updating lately. To say I'm overwhelmed with
work will be a huge understatement :(
I did however had the 4 minutes to browse the net today, and I found
this crazy sh.t ... (excuse the camera man, obviously he was drunk - he
or the guy that encoded the video). Enjoy!
Between Choco Party, Darth Vader, Crazy-S&M-dude, the Soda Jetpack and this I am know convinced Japanese television is the greatest thing ever. Let's all say it together now: Pi-ta Kora So Ichiiiii.
ps: Give it time, by the third one you'd be hooked.
pss: Let's hope I get the link right the first time :))
I've updated the "Stuff to watch" section a bit (thanks to the quick and professional
help that Crazyguy gave me). Now you have a tree view for your
unwatched stuff, so if the list is very long - it won't be an issue anymore.
In other news, as the headline suggests, I have to say something about Paris,
and it's not the city .... so ... there .. OMFG!
Visa Commercial - I hope I haven't postet that earlier ...
On the other hand, I'm pretty sure I haven't posted this one yet,
although it's kinda classic - banned commercial - Pepsi vs Coke!
In other news - in a desperate attempt to make this site profitable,
I've started adding affiliate links. It's only available for the UK
users for now, and promotes an online shop for DVDs in the UK
It's kinda small banner, so I hope it won't irritate you that much,
and you'll use it thus supporting this site :) After all - it offers free
shipping and what not ...
I wish I lived in the UK so I could use that service .... ;)
Thanks to our friend Wizard, I now know, that they went even further than making jumping cars, although the technology behind this might be very interesting so it's not all that bad ...
And yeah, it deserves a big fat OMG! ;)
