Animesuki takes a fairly strict line towards links to bootleg material *licensed* for Region 1. A "Fair Use" clip might be passable but since "Fair Use" often gets decided in expensive courts - economically prudent to be safe. TRL's workaround was amusing and made his point about math nicely

Putting a youtube link to an episode of anime that is licensed (be it on Crunchyroll or licensed for DVD) will get you reported and possibly banned. Its pretty clearly written in the forum rules and FAQ.

hmm indeed I would believe that. but what about not the whole ep just one clip? or are they all so licensed that it can't be done. if so why was he allowed to put up Spanish one?

and what is region 1?

There's no such thing as "shades of licensing". It is either licensed for a country in a region or it isn't. TRL was just being safe as some license holders are pretty tacky about even clips of their stuff being used. "Not worth the trouble" is the best phrase until the USA get some changes into the laws on licensing, copyright, and the DMCA laws.

About Regions: The entertainment cartel has divided the world up into six regions. Here's a map of it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code. DVDs are often encoded only to play on players sold in a particular region. Region 1 is the US/Canada. The Spanish speaking areas are in Region 4 and a bit of Region 2. Japan is in Region 2 also... which can be confusing.

The Blu-ray region encoding is entirely different: It has 3 regions - Region A contains releases from United States, Canada and Asian nations such as Japan, Korea and Hong Kong. I keep hoping Japanese blu-ray releases will start adding english subtitles

Most often... when something is said to be "licensed" - the writer really means it has been licensed by a copyright holder in countries that reside in Region 1 (e.g. Funimation or ADV).

Animesuki worries most about Region 1 licensing where many licensing rights holders take a dim view of almost anyone for any reason. Some websites completely ignore such things... but Animesuki has historically tried to stay in a light grey zone on the matter of licensing.

... yes, the world is a complicated mess

You know, now that I've brought it up, how would you illustrate the division by fractions to a 10-year-old?

I just realised that, even today, I can't think of an easy way to show what's going on behind the arithmetic.

Start with small fraction, like :

Show him what happens when 1/4 is divided by 1/2. The general arithmetic formula is

[1/4] / [1/2] = [1/4] x [2/1] = 2/4 = 1/2

Use the analogy of 2 similar pies being cut into 4 parts and 2 parts respectively, and how many half-sized parts, can fit into a quarter sized pie?

Answer : A half-size of the half size.

Always keep in mind that the concept behind division is :

X divided by Y = How many parts of of Y can fit into X?

I remember being the one explaining it to my Primary school teacher and had my parents being called up for disrupting the class. Well, I read it from a book about shortcuts to complex arithmetic, with tricks like how to multiply 3 digit numbers by 3 digit numbers, back when I was very young, about 5 or 6.

The books that you read when you in your toddler years tend to stick in your memory for a bloody long time, because it is at the very bottom of your memory bank. It is pretty amazing that after 16 years, I still can remember the technique for multiplying 3 digit numbers by 3 digit numbers, and the first 41 digits of pi, but I can't remember how to do college-maths level trigonometry.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

There USED to be a club in most schools in the US called "Number Sense" where they ran teams to compete against other schools. They'd learn a slew of math tricks to rapidly solve equations and engage in contests. My wife was a member when we were in high school.

That was before the Great Dumbing Down of Society though.....

Over here it is : "It doesn't matter how it works. It is the correct method we are teaching you know, so just learn and don't ask any questions. You have to finish the syllabus by then end of this semester before the exams."

We'd be drilled in the same old question types over and over again until it becomes automatic response. But most of us still don't understand how the underlying concepts actually worked, other than the kids who played around with the equations at home during their free time.

I don't really want to start a new thread in the tech support section of the website with my question. So I am asking here. If nobody knows the answer than it's no big deal.

What is the best method or settings to compress files using 7z or winrar?


I am compressing and backing up files for a reformat I will be doing later today or tomorrow to replace my windows 7 RC1 operating system with a retail version of windows 7.

it's about 200gb worth of material. pictures, video, music, games etc.

i am only seeing a 95% compression ratio at the moment and I am hoping to get that a little lower.

The 7z and RAR compression schemes are pretty effective, actually.

The issue here is that all your pictures, video, music, and games are, for the most part, already highly compressed. Much of the storage savings you get at that point is simply data contained in fewer total files and therefore potentially a few bytes are saved per file due to filesystem inefficiency.

So, the short answer is that, unfortunately, you aren't really going to get it appreciably smaller than you have now. And it's going to take a loooong time to squeeze any significant savings out. In the time you'd wait on compressing/decompressing the data, you could have earned enough working a part-time job to buy a spare hard drive.

Do not compress stuff that's already compressed. Videos in particular, images (jpegs etc), music (flac, mp3 etc) -- not worth it. Things like PDF you save a little bit here and there but pretty much not so cool either. What's worth compressing: text and anything to do with text will give you incredible savings, game files sometimes (it depends but its usually worth a try). If you have things like .ISOs etc I suggest you make sure the image is not tacking up more space then its actually storing (or using a alternative format otherwise).

The archiving feature I use the most is store, just because archives are so much easier to move around then having 232 files copied (eww!).

thanks for the help concerning compression. It makes sense now. i knew pictures and videos were already compressed but it never occurred to me while trying to back up my files.

I ultimately decided to delete all but roughly 40 gigs of my data and stick it onto my Ipod...only thing i got that i can use as an external hard drive lol.

it would have taken me 9-12 hours to finish the compression of 200gigs of data. then probably a few days to place all the data onto...50 dvds... It took an hour just to transfer 40 gigs of information from my hard drives to my Ipod.

This was never a option in the drop down menu.

Are you sure you are not mixing up the following two options?

Find all posts by ...
Find all threads started by ...

Those two are available from the user's profile.

The option "Find More Posts by ..." is the one available in the drop-down menu (when you click on the poster's user name within a post).

Or are you saying that you no longer can see this option in the drop-down menu?

I think it should be all about being rich, famous and simply buying yourself enough hard drive space and not to worry about those things. But who knows I am not that damn good to know the difference

Well, I guess my memory is not as good as it used to be. At any case, yeah, I was just looking for the Find all threads started by ... option.

What is (if there is one) the term for when people accidentally swap words around in a sentence? Or when they swap the starting letters of a word?

Eg. "I fan pretty rast." (I ran pretty fast.)

or

"One drop of world could cover the water." (Awesome quote from non other than Kent Hovind, who wanted to say the still horribly wrong "One drop of water could cover the world... if you spread it real thin.")

I was just wondering since I was reading about Lord Rugdumph (an Orc who uses malapropisms in Oblivion) on the uesp wiki site.
