Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

8GB on an i5 cpu should run W10 ok. Your computer's bios settings should allow assigning a USB flash drive as a boot device, or allow you to select an alternate boot device one time. Most computers use the DEL key, or one of the F keys (Usually F2, F10, or F12 depending on the which make it is) pres...

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

SSD's are made in 'single', 'double', and 'triple' storage cells (with 'quad' cells soon to come). This means that 1,2,3, or even 4 bits are stored in a single memory cell.

Re: Jeffbert's Mighty Atom book

Not professionally. I've had to proof read my own writing for grammar and spelling of course. Having several eyes looking at the same pages will catch more errors, more quickly. Depending on how and where you want to publish, you may desire having the manuscript checked by someone familiar with the ...

Re: Astroboy's thrilling baseball fight

The word "Tetsu" literally means 'iron'. I wonder if 'Tetsu Uma' is a thing in Japan for old trains.

Metropolis BD

I just bought a copy of the anime based on Tezuka's Metropolis manga. I've seen this film before on DVD, but I recently found the BD disc for sale for less than $10 on ebay, so I bought it. The package includes both a BD and a DVD copy of the film. Only the DVD has the extra feature "the making...

Re: The 2009 Astro Boy movie is 10 years old

I remember seeing the trailer for that movie in the theater. At the time I hadn't thought of Astro Boy since the mid 60's. That was quite a jolt to the memory, and soon after that I discovered both the 1980 and 2003 animes on Hulu, I didn't even know that they existed! I also discovered this site, t...
