Avatar: The Last Airbender finally released on Blueray late last year (I already have The Legend of Korra on blueray). I've been waiting a while for this to come out on Blueray.

https://www.jbhifi.com.au/movies-tv-shows/movies-tv-shows-on-sale/tv-childrens/avatar-the-legend-of-aang-complete-series/339926/

Annoyingly it has a different name so when you search the store for The Last Airbender it doesn't show up...

Fun fact: the DVD sets for the first 3 books of Korra do have the LA Spanish dub.

For whatever reason, Nickelodeon/Viacom/Paramount/whatever decided to forgo it on the fourth book set. Which is a shame, and since Korra died an uneventful death on Nick LA (the last 2 books were streaming-only, and the Nick LA website is/was a steaming pile of donkey excrement), that means those episodes are now lost for us at the south of the border...

Coupled with the removal from the Platinum Games-made Korra game (which I've heard it was good, albeit short) from all sales channels due to some publisher BS, well... it's suffering to be a unwanted IP aimed at the "wrong" demographics :/

I never liked Avatar (found it utterly boring). Paradoxically I really liked Korra, so go figure.

They said Korra was the better Avatar.
But personally I think

If Korra was better, why didn't she get a movie?

Just in case you thought something could EVER be straightforward, and needed someone to dash your hopes across the rocky shoals of harsh reality.

Good ol' executive meddling.

The Men In Expensive Suits didn't wanted a Female Protagonist show like Korra for whatever reason (can't remember the real excuse right now, but it could have been something down the lines of "we're targeting 12yo boys, so Korra is an ill-suited character for them" or something stupid like that). They half-heartedly greenlit the show, but expected to flop after a single season (this also explains why the animation was done by Studio Pierrot in a tight budget, rather than continuing with Studio Mir, which already excelled with Avatar).

They got wrong. Korra was a hit just like Avatar was.

Still, they continued with their goal to doom the project, although they had to acknowledge that they had to up the production values (this is why for the second book they switched back to Studio Mir for the animation work). They started screwing up with the scripts, denying TV slots to the show (it's streaming-only for most locales), and finally axing the show after 4 seasons.

Man, fuck Nickelodeon. Reminds me a bit of the fate of other classic Nicktoons like Rocko's Modern Life and Invader Zim: get off-target-demographics (even slightly) and you're dead, instead of moving the show to another, more suitable content block.

I expected more ranting about Shamalama and less ranting about Nick.

Totally innocent game cover:



(Also: the idea of playing Puyo Puyo on a monochrome display is... strange, to say the least)

Oh wow, I haven't played that game in a very long time. That was when I had absolutely no idea how to read Japanese, but played GB Wars nonetheless. Good times, good times.

Speaking of Japan:

He said the samurai used them. So it isn't that they don't work, just that the movies and cartoons don't understand HOW they work.

The climactic battle between Darth Vader and Ben Kenobi on the Death Star, redone to match the more dynamic and energetic style of the rest of the films.

There's some neat things in there, and I actually like the callbacks to their fight in Revenge of the Sith. I know, I'm as surprised as you.
They sample some of that film's dialog to remind audiences of the two's history and the weight this fight carries(a history the original film couldn't reference because it didn't yet exist). Similarly, the use of flames and red light echos the volcano battle.

And, of course, it is a cool lightsaber duel.

The original release of BLOOD for MS-DOS supports 16x9 aspect ratio displays... with the option of 848x480 resolution. Were there even any 16x9 displays available back then (May 1997)!?? Talk about forward thinking lmao.

I think there were a few widescreen TVs at the high end, for home theater buffs. Definitely odd to see support in a game.

The 1080p CRT monitor John Carmack used during Quake's development comes to mind.

Odd, indeed.

Beyond RFC1918: Additional ranges for private use

If you thought 10.x.x.x/172.16.x.x/192.168.x.x was the textbook definition of lame, you have several other reserved IP ranges you should not (ab)use because they were not meant for anything other than its very specific purposes as defined on its relevant RFCs, but that you can go and use it anyway. If you're lucky, you will not hit weird firmware bugs. If you're very unlucky, your firmware is already abusing of one of said ranges anyway (hi ZTE!).

I now feel the urge to migrate my home LAN to TEST-NET-3, if only because I want a IP that does NOT start with an one.

Under a new partnership announced by the U.S. Embassy in Vienna, American citizens can go to any of the 194 McDonald’s in Austria to seek help to contact a consular office

“It is a smart move for McDonald’s. The company’s engagement and interaction with American citizens abroad is very significant, making them an ideal partner for consular outreach and assistance.”

“Becoming a trusted place to go when you have a personal crisis adds a new dimension to the focus on customer needs.”

This made me poke at the good ol' reserved IPv4 blocks map. I see most of the old guard like GE and the universities were returned to the pool.

Why does Apple have a /8 block? And why did they buy it in 1990, while they were otherwise engaged in simply not going bankrupt?

Very cool, I've only ever laid eyes upon a small number of 16x9 CRT TV's.

Weren't they dirt cheap/free back then?
