  1. Horror Movie turns into Dumb and Dumber Comedy


    This isn't a question. It's a story. Sit back, relax, because it should bemuse you for a moment.

    Alright. Almost 3 years ago I switched from 3 decades of Mac only to the PC. Yes, that's right. Windows 10 was the first MS system that didn't make me cringe at first glance. It's really grown on me, in fact.

    But every so often I come to this extremely helpful board (thank you) and try to answer questions. The problem is so many people are having HORROR SHOW problems. "Umm... my mouses around the screen but nothing opens or closes." "OMG! I boot up and get the recovery screen!!!" "Hey -- why can't I save anything anymore?!?"

    These and similar questions terrify me. I hear the lengthy complex responses and thank my lucky stars almost everything I need is backed up. I typically have no feasible responses outside of wipe and reinstall. Well...

    ... this morning...

    ... I boot my PC and the external monitor is black. Not off, but zero on it. No 'Asus'... no 'HDMI connection'... just black with the edges faintly LED illuminated. DRAT! So I used the tried and true just reboot and see if it happens again. Right? Why not. It --

    -- happens again. !!!!

    I think, I consider, I remember -- OH YEAH -- we just had a cumulative update! Days ago! SuperDRAT! I pick up my phone and ask Google what's what with black screens and I'm told 'Google ain't available right now'.

    HOLY CARP! The entire internet has been attacked by terrorists!!!! (Did I mention I hadn't had my coffee yet and I'm running a bit groggy?) *Tongue

    So I manually type my query into Google -- and it offers a site that opens with "Why there's only a thousand reasons why a Windows 10 PC might have a dark screen at boot!" (It didn't say a 1000 but it felt like it *Redface)

    The first bit of advice? Check to see if your PC and monitor are still properly connected. I'm like GIVE ME A BREAK! *Rolleyes What -- do you think I'm a mucking foron or something? Of course it's connected!!! Look, I'll show you -- see right here where...

    ... the HDMI cable was barely connected to the PC.

    *Think*Redface*Sad*Tongue

    PLEASE help me make sense of my sound card. I'm baffled.

    LOL @ kingping's avatar. Dumb and dumber is my #1 comedy of all time. I pretty much know every line in the movie.

  4. Horror Movie turns into Dumb and Dumber Comedy

    All Sorts of Movies, Music, and Comedy Coming to the PSP

    Josh Freund from GamesAreFun.com went to the trouble of making an unofficial list of what movies, taped music performances/concerts, and comedy shows are to be released on UMD (Sony's Universal Media Disk) for the PSP. It's a large list and can be found on the above link. Most movies are from Sony's own movie branch which is expected.



    Some notable ones, according to my taste in movies/TV, are:
    Super Troopers - 7/05
    Air Force One - 7/19
    Armageddon - 7/19
    Kill Bill - Volume 1 and 2 (sold separately) - vol. 1 already available, vol. 2 coming - July 19
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail - July 26
    The Replacement Killers - August 09
    Dave Chappelle - For What It's Worth - August 16
    Sin City - August 16
    The Rock - August 16
    Snatch - August 23
    Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children - September 13 *Smile Horror Movie turns into Dumb and Dumber Comedy :)
    Ren and Stimpy Volume 1 1/2ish - sometime in December
    The Incredibles - sometime in December

    I don't think it's worth buying a movie on DVD and UMD, unless they are packaged together at only a few buck more than the DVD by itself. But some movies are great for watching anytime. I imagine it will be mainly movie buffs and parents with their children that will start collecting UMD movies. I wouldn't be surprised if in the future Sony offers DVD players and TV's with built in support for watching UMD's. Well, that's only if Sony is serious about selling this format long-term, past the life of the PSP, and that depends on if they release another handheld - a PSP2.
