Star Trek TNG Bluray Screencapping Complete

I finished screencapping Star Trek: The Next Generation from Bluray a few days ago! Including all seven seasons and all four TNG movies. Frankly I didn’t actually think this day would ever come! It was such a daunting task, which was made hugely easier when last year I upgraded my internet connection to a better one that came with a significant upstream upgrade too! 😀 Since that upgrade, uploading one episode’s worth of screencaps only takes about 5-10 minutes 😀 Contrast that to an hour  which it always took before from about 2010 onwards, and two to three hours the decade before that. Gotta love advance in technology!

Anyway, I always felt/thought/kept hoping that by the time I finished (if I ever finish) capping TNG, DS9 and maybe even VOY would be remastered in HD and out on Bluray and that I’d just continue on with DS9 Blurays. BUT, and I can’t believe this, but neither DS9 nor VOY have been remastered in HD! There aren’t even rumours!

I can’t believe it. What are TPTB thinking?! I think that DS9 and VOY will be totally forgotten if they aren’t released in HD – people aren’t going to be wanting to see anything in SD anymore in the future, I know I already don’t if there’s an HD option. Except maybe the hard core, mostly already existing Star Trek fans, who’ll bitterly make do with SD and DVDs. There’ll be no new viewers because even if the shows are on Netflix etc. quality will be so low compared to remastered in HD Star Trek and currrent, modern shows that I don’t believe casual viewers, who could turn into fans, are willing to give SD-only shows a chance. I just really think they’re are in danger of wasting a huge chunk of the Star Trek property by not remastering DS9 and VOY in HD.

Also, the Jeri Ryan fan in me wants to see 7of9 really, really badly in HD. It’d be glorious.

Reminder – Crystal Fires Gallery Shuts Down!

Just a quick reminder – https://gallery.crystalfires.net will shut down in a coupleof days on May 11th when the domain expires! I imported my magazine and photoscans here, but all the screencaps will be gone once the domain expires. So make sure to get anything you want now! And if you want to upload any of the screencaps on your site, you have my permission – just credit me, and if possible, I’d love a note where they are up so I can direct people that way! But that’s not mandatory, only crediting me is mandatory.

oded-fehr.net now gone!

The domain oded-fehr.net expired earlier today and I just gleefully deleted the cpanel account along with all the site stuff from the server! Feels truly weird not to have it anymore after it being my baby for 18 years… but also free! 😀

Next up: crystalfires.net – it’ll expire on May 11. Can’t wait to be rid of it too!

Changes + Maybe Deleting Sites

Update…

March 31, 2019I’ve decided to let crystalfires.net expire on May 11, 2019 and delete the site when it does. Things I’ll keep will be transferred to my creative site https://www.so-obsessed.com. https://gallery.crystalfires.net will not be preserved, all the screencaps there will be unavailable once the domain has expired so if there’s anything there you want, get it now!

I’m also leaning towards deleting https://www.vampirediaries.info, https://www.xenacentral.net and https://www.star-trek.info soon, but haven’t made a final decision yet. If there’s anything there you want, get it now!

 

I feeling strongly again like I want to reduce my sites… really, really want to have fewer of them right now again… I’ve been feeling like this on and off for the past several years, which has lead to me deleting many of my sites. In an effort not to make hasty decisions right now, there’s going to be a few changes around here:

In an effort to lessen my work load I’m going to stop posting screencaps updates from my other sites here, effective immediately. To clean things up, I’ve removed the old screencaps posts.

In the future, I’ll only post an update about the screencaps uploaded to https://gallery.crystalfires.net here, and if I’m planning on posting whole season/series, I might make that announcement once it’s complete. So check out https://gallery.crystalfires.net and my other individual sites if you want to know the updates.

I might not post all screencaps updates to my Dreamwidth. I will propably post them to my Tumblr, but no promises. So basically, bookmark the site URLs you’re interested in and check out those sites when you want to know if there’s been any updates.

Also be aware that I’m really feeling like deleting https://gallery.crystalfires.net so if there’s anything uploaded there you want, get it ASAP. I’m not promising it’ll stay up. The domain crystalfires.net will expire on May 11 – I may or may not renew it. If I don’t, things I’ll keep will be transferred to my creative site https://www.so-obsessed.com

Other sites in the danger zone: https://www.vampirediaries.info, https://www.xenacentral.net, https://www.star-trek.info and maybe https://www.zahn-mcclarnon.net I love all these sites would be sad to lose them, but like I said I’m strongly feeling like I want to reduce the number of sites I’m responsible for. And TVD, Xena and Star Trek sites are huge each, so they take up a lot of my mental energy due to having to worry about them due to sheer size.

Going In For A Procedure – Delay Fixing Possible Site Problems

Today’s been awful, had a terrible migraine that didn’t want to go away and I’m still worried that it might come back during the night or tomorrow. I’m worried because I’m going to have a routine colonoscopy again on Wednesday (first time in 4 years!), and I need to do the fun fun fun! “empty the bowels” prep tomorrow. Which means drinking about 4,5-6 litres of liquids which I think I won’t be able to do, or at least, won’t be able to keep down if the stupid migraine is on :/

This colonoscopy is just to see what’s going on because my symptoms have been stable the past several years and I haven’t needed to have one done because bloodwork also looked good. Bloodwork still looks good, but due to increased chance of colon cancer with Crohn’s Disease patients, colonoscopies need to be done at regular intervals even when symptoms or bloodwork don’t necessarily warrant it.

The prep and the colonoscopy itself usually wipes me out, so I won’t be online much (or at all) tomorrow and Wednesday. If there are any problems with the sites, I’ll get on it ASAP but propably not before Thursday.
