  • Good morning, my friend. Say, my parents will be home today or in the afternoon. And they’re going to get my plans ready for my birthday celebration on Thursday.

    I am happy for you. The anticipation and foretaste with the mind of your own birthday is already a joy in itself.
    Today the site is very slow on Android Chrome, with Bad Gateway errors and with image loading errors: I have a bad omen. That damn Cloudf..

    I was mostly asking because of "that damn cloud" which made me think of Final Fantasy 7 lol

    A few months ago I couldn't access this site anymore because of Cloudflare (I didn't even want to mention it... hehe).

    I've only had one error like that, somewhere around morning CEST and I was quite annoyed given how I always have a load of notifs to go through

    I know. Anyway, last night, I just watched an episode of one of my childhood shows. It’s about a baby bongo bird who wants his mom. And three animal friends must find his mom. Since he’s a baby bongo bird, he has a musical dream about a fun song about himself. In fact, that musical dream is similar to my dream about Misty’s sister, Daisy.

    But you didn't write me if they found his mom; so you keep me on my toes...hehe.
    Anyway, you are very talkative today; you have written me several times. Maybe you are in a great mood today.
    Well, I’m scared of spiders. And I’m scared of bees with stingers. But I’m not scared of caterpillars and butterflies. Because they’re so beautiful and colorful.

    That you like caterpillars is a surprise. Then you'll also like their cousins worms and maggots... hehe.
    Wow. Say, with Cartoonito is on every weekday mornings, there’s a new friend who is a friendly spider. He’s Lucas the spider. And he and his friends go on fun adventures. Don’t tell me that you are scared of spiders, especially Lucas the spider, are you?

    Lucas, I don't know him, but I'm actually afraid of spiders, or rather they disgust me; especially the threadlike ones, with many very thin legs and almost no torso..."yuck"[shudder].
    So, I have a tough question for you. Do you remember watching the Rugrats special, Runaway Reptar? Although the special is not CGI. But it’s my favorite childhood movie of all time, especially in the summer.

    In fact, that's a tough question, which I can't answer, since I never saw that series: I only remember, in passing, a baby in a big diaper...hehe.
    Well, not exactly. It’s because of the corona virus. But we get to stay home from the virus. Fortunately, whenever I get bored, I get to take on virtual field trips to zoos and aquariums on YouTube. And I get to learn about caring for animals from the people who work at zoos and aquariums.

    I see. Unfortunately, virtual travel is not like real travel. And the virus is transmitted only in close contact with people, and if you do not have a mask; in the middle of nature there is no risk. Anyway, the important thing is that you are happy.
    I been to a real zoo with my class during the warm weather. We saw lots of animals. There’s even colorful fishes in the aquarium room at the zoo.

    Don't you take daily walks through grass, flowers and trees with your sister and relatives? I go there most mornings early with my dog; but I am blessed to live among the woods, plains and hills.
    Oh, I see. Anyway, my favorite Saturday morning hobby is watching some episodes of the zoo while my sister is watching some childhood shows on our new TV. And the show, The zoo, is really the Bronx zoo. It has lots of animals.

    I like animals too. Until a few years ago, before the pandemic, I used to take my little son to the zoo in my town. What fun! And don't you ever go to the zoo? Don't you ever take any nature walks with your parents?
    Well, I’m not alone. But my siblings are keeping me company. And I still have my Pokémon friends on my 3DS games. And also, haven’t you watched Esme and Roy? It’s a show from the makers of Sesame Street. And it’s about a girl and her friendly, yellow monster pal who babysits friendly monsters.

    Hi. This is the first time you've mentioned the 3DS; so you like video games too. I, on the other hand, have a GBA SP, a DS Lite, a DSi XL and a PSP, but no Pokémon games...hehe.
    That show you mentioned is not dubbed in my language, unfortunately (or fortunately...hehe)
    Hi there. Say, my parents have left out of town. And they’ll be back home on Sunday. But don’t worry, at least I still have you as my friend. And also, my favorite winter holidays movies are Caillou’s holiday movie, A Flintstone Christmas, and the Rugrats Christmas special, Babies in Toyland.

    Are you home alone? Isn't your sister there to keep you company? Well, you can pass the time by watching some anime or playing video games (not sure if you like them, actually). About those movies, the Flintstones are my favorite.
    Hello, my friend. Say, my family and I are getting everything ready for thanksgiving. And I’m excited about watching holiday movies and shows about Christmas in November. I have lots of holiday specials and movies.

    My friend, I haven’t told you about this, but there’s a Pokémon movie that wasn’t aired on TV. It’s called Mewtwo returns. It’s when Ash and his friends help Mewtwo and the cloned Pokémon save their home in Johto from Giovanni. In the end, after saving everyone, Mewtwo became a new friend.

    Hello, my friend. I just watched a special Dodo kids video and it has something to do with dogs and Elmo from Sesame Street. Because Elmo helps a stray dog find a new home. There’s a stray beagle dog who needs a new home and a new family to take care of him.

    If I had known there was a poor stray beagle around, I would have adopted him... hehe. Dogs give more than they receive from us....
    My friend, next Thursday is my birthday. I’m very excited about my special day. In fact, I’ll be watching some birthday themed episodes of my childhood shows. And after that, my parents will give me my birthday gifts.

    Hello there, my friend. Say, in one of the episodes of season 15 of Pokémon, Ash, Iris, and Cilan visits the electric rock cave with the Unova region Pokémon Professor. But when they battled Team rocket, Jessie, James, and their talking Meowth escapes by riding on jet packs. At least they didn’t get blasted off.

    Chargestone Cave? One of my favourite caves in the series, due to its uniqueness.

    As you continue to persist with these Pokémon, perhaps a miracle will happen... some sympathy for them will be born in me, however unlikely... hehe.
    Which one? The girl I have now? Or the girl before this one? I just saw your comment on that entry blog.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
