Yet another crazy ideas thread.

Would it be that controversial if museums and airlines introduced free, mandatory gags to put over your babies mouth when they start crying? Or even a bloody plastic bag?

It is arguable because PS1 does hardware dithering to fake a higher colour count and has such a low resolution that CRT screens make it look better. The screen is way sharper because the CRT can match the resolution of the game, while a flat panel would do some basic bilinear stretching with variable amount of ringing noise to make it run on its native resolution.
PS2 doesn't run in high resolution or in widescreen (except for very few select titles), and many games actually use 480i, so it would look better on a decent CRT too. Except for the games that actually do progressive output, which is not that common.

PS3 and above, games with digital output, will of course look the best on digital panels.

You were wise to use the key word, "arguable". Because if you have a good deinterlacer (either built-in or something like a Framemeister), you can make 480i and 576i look good on a flat panel. And, arguably 240/288p of PS1 games does not look better on a CRT, since it introduces black scanlines.

The problem isn't the deinterlacing but that the low-res polygon graphics look really really blurry when stretched out to a HD panel. A good scaler helps, but those have their own downsides: Framemeister is extremely expensive and EOL, and has huge problems when a game switches resolutions mid-game, while the OSSC is good for 240p and switches resolutions fast but it is absolutely trash for interlaced games (it makes them look WORSE).

the Crt scanlines and shadow mask / aperture grille layouts do end up making the graphics much sharper, since each pixel is more defined, as opposed to a blurry soup on a hd panel.

POST YOUR DREAMS!

My last one was something that could make a decent fanfiction. It was a mashup of Prometheus, Avengers, and Pacific Rim. Basically, it is the future, and anti-gravity vehicles are the norm. The dream starts somewhere far away, where an Architect was revived from deep sleep. He vows to destroy mankind, his creation, because we are not perfect. He says all that telepathically, due to his vocal chords being cut. He calls his fellow architects, and they get together a fleet of spaceships to fly to Earth and destroy it. I am one of the few humans who learn of this first (forgot how), and I learn hat while at a picnic with a larger group of people, in a forest. After seeing the ships approach and leveling the forest, I grab the nearest speeder bike (junk, but operational and defies gravity!) and ride to my home. After I get there, I tell everyone the news (they are my friends in the dream, despite being complete strangers now that I look back). So, from the windows of the apartment, we see the Architect ships (different than the ones from Prometheus) slowly destroy the city. The human race then decides to quickly go through with a defense program. To fight monsters, we will create monsters. Very quickly. But instead of giants robots, we use magical bullshit science to make superheroes out of people. Those superheroes would make a defense team strong enough to defeat all the asshole creator aliens. The plan is successful, and my dream ends with the first batch of superheroes testing their new powers before going to fight the Architects. I also remember there being one lizard girl testing her freeze powers and looking happy after seeing they worked.

Anything you seen in your sleep worthy of talking about?

Another dream where I met a potential true love, who was too full of her unrelated problems to stay with me, and had to run away. Goddamn, what a sad ending it was. Everyone, including me, was an Outlaw Star character for some reason.

Could you elaborate on that? I mean Jen goes on a journey, sometimes there is magic, he has supernatural guidance, it's pretty step for step.

The series has a lot of developments but it basically can be summed up with, "Zombie birds eat midget elves to live. Midget elves find out. Midget elves try to rebel from zombie birds."

Once you understand that Jen is NOT who the story is about, that the story was about the Mystics and Skeksis all along, THAT is the twist that makes the boring slow first half worthwhile.

Why are so many movie stars cultists?

I mean, scientology is a collection of them, but even Gwyneth Paltrow has her own snake-oil company that also has its own culty scam seminars

Because stardom makes their lives hell. They can't do as much as go down to the groceries without people flocking over them. Cults are a place where that doesn't matter, and it gives them a sense of belonging too, so when the join they feel a level of appretiation they do not feel elsewhere.

It is one place where they can go to and meet people without stardom being a problem.

That, or they are just scammers who know that people go to cults for that reason, and they try to take advantage of that.

So I recently discovered this site. First of all I appreciate that this place is fully functional without JS. I would like to know if the board software is available. I would love to use it in my site. How does this site control spam though?

I definitely think those are fair points, I just think in most cases JS should be a bonus enhancer rather then a requirement. On some sites that can't be done, but forums and imageboards rarely have a need to require JS just to load and post (captcha being the biggest exception I can think of)

On a fundamental level, an imageboard (or any social network site for that matter) does not need it, yes, and I do make it a point to get every site I work on done with bare minimum javascript. But on a practical level, the site needs it really badly, to make things simpler and faster for the users. People don't sit in front of the monitor pressing F5 F5 F5 when waiting for replies; they expect their phone to ping to notify them of a new reply. That's just how it is now.

Regardless of that, I want the new design to retain every function of the current one, there must be no regressions. And that means there's still some work left to be done.
