I've made some progress. I decided to try to enhance the VEI upscales from the Bluray, and it seems to work fairly well. Here's a scene from the pilot. You have to be on a PC screen to see the difference I think, and it's made with screencast on an RDP session, so there are some additional issues ... 😋

Rewatching #Stargate. Next up is "Rules of Engagement:" a training camp for Jaffa to learn how to infiltrate the SGC
Hello I'm kitti, I'm:
I'm curious now how well the ML model used in Topaz Video AI stands up to the upscale job Visual Entertainment Inc did for Stargate SG-1 for the Bluray boxset.
I still have my complete DVD boxset as well, so I've decided to run the Iris V2 model of TVAI on a couple of episodes and compare. The VEI upscale is pretty blurry, and in some places really bad. It can't hurt to try!
Each person on #StargateUniverse has only ONE outfit.
Why aren’t they naked all the time? ( exception: Chloe).
How do they wash that one outfit?
Colonel Young darns his own sock. That’s it?
There’s no sign of soap. How do they shave?
Menstrual care? Underwear?

Also, this piece of trivia ... 😆
"In Stargate SG-1 and its spin-offs, Cheyenne Mountain houses 'Stargate Command', a top-secret unit of the United States Air Force that uses the titular Stargate to explore other planets. In recognition of the series' close relationship with the real-life Air Force, there is now a broom closet in the real Cheyenne Mountain Complex called 'Stargate Command'."
So, I'm re-encoding my Stargate SG-1 episodes in a bit better quality. The tracks on the Blurays are not always in the same order as the episodes, but I'm finding that I only need to watch a few seconds of the encoded video file to know which episode title it is.
I fear I've watched too much Stargate 😁
372 WS2812B 1x1mm RGB LEDs.
Obviously I cannot make the symbols spin, so some creative licence. I can make the rings of 117 LEDs "spin", and light up the symbols, and even do a slight "lock" on the chevrons. But won't know for sure what looks right until I get these.
I also don't really know then current demand for actual use, as not all LEDs full white, obviously. Hopefully within a typical USB charger lead.
The "fun" bit so far is the C code to make LED rings in #KiCad pcb files.

"Dancing with a Stranger" is a song by British singer #SamSmith and American singer #Normani. It was written by the artists alongside producers #Stargate and #JimmyNapes. "Dancing with a Stranger" was released as a single by #CapitolRecords on 11 January 2019. It appears on Smith's third studio album #LoveGoes (2020). The accompanying music video was directed by #VaughanArnell. The track became a commercial success, topping the charts in Mexico, Iceland, and Lebanon.
You'd think they'd encourage team members to be positive at this point in #Stargate: SG-1, with all of the "near death but not quite" experiences the team's had. Then again, I'm #surprised nobody pointed out that Vala's distress call could've been a trap too (it's almost like the screenwriters already knew what would happen 😉 !
Feels like my remaining tasks to tend too for the month are getting 1 Package shipped to a friend to complete the Trade for the #Stargate figures I got and may send him another box for our next trade loaded with Star Wars figures.
I LOVE collecting older Action Figures since they are FUN.
Okay. I've finished SG-1, and Atlantis, and the two movies, now it's time for Stargate Universe 🤩 #Stargate
You wanna shake things up? Maybe give any of the characters a hint of character development for once.
I've lost count of how many "oh, maybe I shouldn't be such a dick all the time" moments McKay's gone through without ever learning from it, and honestly, I'm getting tired of him
Three seasons in, Shepard's still the soldier trying to flirt with every woman he encounters instead of being a charismatic leader
Teyla's still not much more than the slightly interesting alien woman who does martial arts, Ronon is still the slightly interesting alien man who does martial arts, while both should have a rich culture and strong motivations to fight the enemy, they're still just team members #3 and #4. They're like two failed attempts at recreating Teal'c.
These authors know how to write deep and interesting characters, they've done it for ten seasons of SG-1, why are Atlantis' characters just as flat as the ocean surrounding the city?
Fuck, these authors pulled it off to replace like half the main cast between seasons 8 and 9 of #Stargate SG-1, and it worked perfectly. I wish they'd have brought the tiniest hint of that writing talent over to Atlantis :bunsad:
I might have just watched the worst episode of SG-A so far.
What the fuck is it with #Stargate execs and killing off doctors, just to "shake things up"?
This episode does not fit into the rest of the show at all, it literally breaks the shows usual flow by everyone having the first day off since the expedition's start.
There's no higher meaning behind Beckett's death, it didn't fit into the story (neither the overarching one, nor the episode's plot), had literally no effect on it. It happened just to make the show "more interesting", and I hate it.
This weird Hannibal/Fear and Loathing mashup episode near the end of Atlantis is really fucking weird #Stargate
Wohoo, my replacement Firefly Blurays arrived. The first set i ordered had a small defect in disc 2, making one of the episodes unreadable in one region. This one seems fine. No read errors.
Good thing I've started to check the discs in the boxsets. I've had a lot of issues with the big 41 disc Stargate boxset produces by VEI. The disc production is of mediocre quality, which is disappointing considering the steep price.
McCay and Ronan make a handshake deal to compete for Dr. Keller. Gross. #Stargate
It seems like I've tried a hundred instances in 48hrs. I think this is the keeper, I hope.
Hello I'm kitti, I'm a
Honestly this episode is the Star Trek "Data has a phone in his stomach" episode of #Stargate
I've been neglecting my Stargate shitposting. I'm in season 5 of Atlantis now. Dr. Weir is in a computer and Woolsey is in command.
So, business as usual. #Stargate
Been rewatching #Stargate due to it being decent comfort TV and what a weird time capsule of Clinton/Bush neoliberalism it is. The characters are amazing but then they kind of just wind their way through a series of nested sci-fi stock plots. It’s amazing and there’s nothing like it.
Aww, I just realized I only have a little under a dozen episodes of #StarGate SG1 left, I'm gonna miss the show
I've been watching SG1 and Atlantis in parallel based on "the canonical timeline", and having only SG:A left isn't gonna be the same :blobfoxmeltsob:
Fun fact: the original actress who played Dr Weir in season 7 of #Stargate: SG-1 was fired and replaced in season 8 and Atlantis because she went to #BurningMan while she was supposed to work on the show but told the producers she needs to take leave for an urgent family matter. The producers weren’t very happy when they inevitably found out.
I did try #Discovery but it really didn't click with me. Not enough social issues I guess lol
Currently even computer games are better than TV series in each of those.
Now when I have your attention, pls give recommendations for someone who liked #BattlestarGalactica, #TheExpanse, #Stargate - all 3 series, (Fear) #TheWalkingDead - first seasons, #Firefly, #Caprica, #gameofthrones .
I was even trying to watch these like a good citizen.
The sins of the father are a real doozy when the father is the Ancients.
Saw so many mentions of Stargate SG-1 on Twitter so decided to watch it all. Had dipped in and out during original TV run back in the day. Just finished last ep and loved it. What a great series. Now on to finish Atlantis having watched first two seasons concurrently #stargate
One neat detail of #Stargate SG-1 is that the team leader, Colonel Angus MacGyver is an atheist who sometimes quips about never reading the Bible

I'm watching The Exorcist for the first time and so far I'm very hopeful as both Pazuzu and Tubular Bells have show up - two of my favourite things. :-)
Also, films that begin with an archaeological dig in the desert tend to be pretty good on the whole ( #Stargate , #TheOmen , etc.)

j'ai bien réfléchi depuis hier et mon épisode préféré de Stargate SG-1 est l'épisode 16 de la saison 4 (2010), je ne vais pas donner trop de détail, mais c'est l'épisode avec les Aschens, voilà un gif pour vous remettre rapidement l'histoire, ça spoile, mais pour les personnes qui n'ont pas vu l'épisode je pense que ça ne dira rien de spécial #stargate #sg1
Ok, fine, I'm kidding(*), this is an adaptor/rotator used to attach scientific instruments to a #telescope
(*) or am I... 🤔 😅
So if the old ancient healing device cube was taken to the command center of a cargo ship
Would it be a telchak on the pel'tac of the tel'tac?
You know, Naquadah is a heavy metal. It's kind of a wonder that having it in your system isn't like poisonous or anything 🤔
Daniel: then we go in disguise!
Jack: how are you gonna do that?
Daniel: well I speak 23 different languages, pick one!
Daniel: You can see me?
Nick: Yes daniel, I can see you.
Daniel: Why didnt you say something?
Nick: You're not real, so it doesnt mean anything.
Daniel: No no no, Nick, Nick, I'm real, you're not hallucinating
Nick: Hallucinations always say that.
