How many people are counting down to seeing this episode? I've been lucky enough to read a copy of the script and cannot wait to actually see it

Hi, Marie!

Add ME, also. Philip might put up screen caps of it after it plays as he has for Chain Reaction. Tried also to put up in same form as gammaquad but is having trouble with peoples' reactions to the software to download with.

Looking forward to see it.

Oh ... deffinately looking forward to see it. The script is great to give you a rough outline, but it won't be 'real' until the actors breathe life into it.

Part of the problem with the rar downloads from Philpi's site seems to be in the web browser people are using. A lot of folks on 'AOL' are having corrupt file messages. The next largest groups seems to be the folks using 'Netsacpe'. I used IE 5.5 with no problem.

Also... these are hardware/software intensive files. I'm running a Pent II 333MHZ, 128 MB RAM graphics card enhanced system. I'm not sure how well it might run on, let's say, a 486... if at all. Windows Media Player really doesn't like the slower machines.

The *asf from GammaQuadrant seems to run better, but I have to say that Philip's avi is just like being there. Great sound and clarity of image.

Philip's sites are always quality sites! He is a genuine fan and seems to wish the same things for others as he would have for himself.

episode downloads

Hi,

Thanks for all your kind comments about my site.

Also I'm sorry for any problems people may be having with the download of "Chain Reaction" from the Simplenet site.

However I make no apologies for the fact that it isn't in the 18mb compressed format of the eps on Gammaquad.

I work on the assumption that if you like a show and are desparate to see it - you'll do anything to watch it - and if that means downloading a bigger file than normal - you'll do that.

I'm hoping to have "2010" on the Simplenet site and some other locations by 9am on Thursday 4th January (GMT).

It will be in a similar format - so get practicing with your rar and avi codecs!!

Philip

Of RAR's and such...

You're right, Philip... not everyone is gonna be able to make use of some of the files on your site. There are programs out there I'd dearly love to run, but they're to intensive for my Pent II. We all live in an electronic world today that would be totally unbleavable to the Appolo 11 astronauts. I've got more computing power in a throw away calculator that they had on their main computer system.

The fact that you have be able to maintain your screen capture site is an increadable gift to fandom. All these added tings you've decided to try, and do, are wonderful extras.

Thank you all your work.

I agree with your comments Rowan.

However - I think the issues concerning the processor requirements are not overwhelming.

My system is only a Celeron 300mhz with 128mb ram - which manages to handle these files perfectly well - enough to encode them which requires far more processing power than to view them.

I agree that there will be a wide variety of different users out there - but I don't hold to the view that we should target everything at the lowest common denominator. We'd still be working on 16 colours and 640*480 resolutions at that rate.

It's a fairly blunt message I'm afraid - but if your system isn't good enough then hard luck. Gammaquad has a 18mb version for those with computer problems (which I didn't supply).

I've deleted my version from the Simplenet site - and closed down that account now - as a result of the Yahoo takeover.

Happy Christmas!

Philip

Nope they don't have a clue. It's one of those episodes where the clock resets itself after the end of the ep - then again, this is sci-fi! But it ends where none of the present SGC members have any real knowledge of what is to happen!

I have no problem at all downloading it... I just have problem making it extracting it, making it play, figuring out what the avi codecs are and figuring out what I'm doing wrong ( I'm not even sure whether or not I did manage to extract them correctly and it's the codec I'm missing or if the extracting is wrong...)


I'm hoping to have "2010" on the Simplenet site and some other locations by 9am on Thursday 4th January (GMT).
I'll be sure to download it. But won't do anything else until I figure out how it really works ( don't want to make a mistake for the 3rd time in a row)

It will be in a similar format - so get practicing with your rar and avi codecs!!
I'll do just that... but maybe I'll wait until February after the exams...

Thanks Philip for making such a great site!

Phil`s Site

Phil, have you started a new site with downloadable eps too?

You really are a fan. Love the screen cap library (you are that phil aren`t you, I`m assuming you are by the p3x595 name) hope you`ll have screen caps up. You may just save me as both my parents are at home on Wednesday and may nik sky (although if they know what`s good for them they won`t even touch that remote until 9:00)

could I have that url please Phil? Are they better quality than the GammaQuad dlable eps?

site add & 2010

Hi,

My site can now be found at http://www.p3x595.com/

It's a little slow - but it is there! (no thanks to Yahoo/Simplenet and their "lets take over the world" ideas!!)

As you all know - in the UK we get "2010" this evening and I hope to have the preliminary screen captures up on the site by about 10pm GMT.

Not sure about an avi/mpeg of the ep - as Adam is going to get the asf up early. Also I no longer have access to a fast reliable server that could handle the traffic this might result in! Don't want to harm the screen caps site :)

So - 12 hours to go!


Philip
