      Tidying Up the Boards   05/04/2016

      I decided that the time had come for some tidying up around the boards and I'm soliciting suggestions as to what else you'd like to see done at this thread on Development Central.

  1. It's a function of multiple factors associated with temperature, moisture, and pressure. In air conditioning design, engineers reference psychrometric charts which layout curves reflecting the relationships between various properties to illustrate (for example) what happens when a process removes moisture at a constant temperature. Relative/absolute/specific humidity, wet bulb/dry bulb/dew point temperature, atmospheric/saturation pressure - all properties associated with comfort, and all are related by way of some different formulas that people come across in chemistry class - Boyle's Law, Charles' Law, Bernoulli Principle, etc.
  2. Official Game of Thrones Season 6 Thread (ver 2.0)

    Glad to see that the question of if/when Jon Snow gets resurrected wasn't strung out, but I was disappointed that he didn't awaken with blue eyes (I'm a fan of the theories that the White Walkers aren't simply an incarnation of The Big Bad, and that there's a deeper story waiting to unfold). Liking how the season is starting, although the cuts between places/storylines are feeling a bit abrupt at this point: necessary evil of juggling so many separate stories, I suppose.
  3. Daredevil Season 2 (Spoilers)

    Loved Bernthal and Yung, but the last third or so of the season felt a little off to me - if we're going mystic/magic, there hasn't been enough ground laid.
  4. CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR - Tomatometer Watch

    Really? To the first sentence, I'd argue that he filled a role (at the very minimum) in the first Avengers movie, and played a pivotal role in the second (by design). He's us - the Xander, the average (and in many contexts, subpar) member of the team whose greatest contribution is his humanity. Cardellini's dialogue was (imo) somewhat heavy-handed in laying it out for us, but Hawkeye alone is the Regular Joe, whose humanity serves as an anchor that the rest of the team needs, illustrating that for all their strengths, the rest of this superteam needs him to function. Personally, it felt like the most recognizably Whedonesque portion(s) of the film; I spent the last third of the movie waiting for Joss to "Anya" Barton, since so much of his development felt so recognizably Joss. To your second sentence, meh - to each his own. I really think that Renner could be a leading man. I loved the idea of him as the new Bourne, and still think Legacy's writing is where it fell short. He hasn't built up the charisma of a Matt Damon, but I think that could change. He plays a grounded everyman well, but has the ability to showcase more. And (for me) he did that in AoU, with an anchored stoicism and dry wit that just worked. I thought the performance was perfect for how Hawkeye was written - that same regular guy living a surrealistic life in which his skillset finds him fighting robots with a bow and arrow while counseling Wanda on what it means to be an Avenger. From a critical standpoint, I can see why some might argue that Hawkeye's arc is contrived at best and manipulative at worst, but (again) to me, Renner nails it. The MCU is filled with (deeply) flawed gods: an exemplary (and well-portrayed) Human lends depth to the rest of the cast. Disclaimer - not a comic guy at all. I've read maybe three or four runs, but my knowledge is pretty limited to bits and pieces of a few comics and cartoons. Closing - I'm more deeply impaired than I've been in a few years. Kinda curious how this is going to read when I'm sober.
  5. Next up: nationwide epidemics of nausea, vomiting, and metallic tastes lead to new wave of nuclear paranoia.
  6. One can only imagine how awkward "Movie Night" would be at the neighborhood Klan hall when they mistake this for that other flick.
  7. Sounds like Jake can honestly make the claim that "George Lucas raped my childhood."
  8. Kingsman: The Golden Circle - He's Back!?

    Oh fuck yes.
  9. So I'm building a Storm Trooper costume.

    Some nice work.  Reminds me a bit of one of my classmates from college, who's turned that kind of work into something pretty awesome - here's a link to his gallery/portfolio.   It takes a bit of looking around, but some of his blog pages show the work involved with castings, moldings, and the like.  
  10. Not really.  Took me a while to figure out what the photo was showing (couldn't tell when loading the pic on my phone), but it seems pretty clear "can not be unseen" stuff once you see a particular detail.
  11. WALK OF LIFE Project (or How To Make Every Ending Better)

    It's just the effect of the absurdly infectious song being juxtaposed into those movies (or others like 2001). Tonally/thematically, it's a train wreck, but the rhythm of the song matches the beats of the movie(s) closely enough that it can almost seem intentional.
  12. I don't know who came up with this, but it's just wonderful.  Movies whose ending is improved 1000% by that dumb Dire Straits song.  Spoiler warnings ahead for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, THE MATRIX, DR. STRANGELOVE, MAD MAX FURY ROAD, 12 MONKEYS.                 Thanks to one of my Facebook friends (KevinCube from the IGN Boards for the old DVDGB regs) for sharing this gem.
  13. Have you guys considered...

    Jesus Christ.  The increasing frequency of the double posts has been bad enough, but the outages and now triple- and quad-posts are getting absurd.   Is it a financial issue?  I'd be more than happy to contribute a couple grand if it meant that one of my main sources of light entertainment functioned more reliably.
