I'm watching Pride at the moment (currently on ep5), and its really hard to get into, imo. The characters, the 1 dimensional plot, I dunno - something about this show is really letting it down for me. I'm guessing it does get better, as it seems unlikely to have made #6 in jdoramas top dramas otherw...

Hybrid vigor is a well-established fact, and saying that there are "pure" races or that interracial marriage will make us all the same is simply nonsense.

You could do it with VirtualDubMod (aka Nandub) from doom9 Either by saving the file as a segmented AVI of size 700, and possibly go one step further and note down the duration of the first segment, and proceed to split the file properly (as segemented AVIs I have found to be a bit of a pain).

Re: [Tutorial] How to convert AVI to standard DVD for TV

Rename the mpg file that was created and save it somewhere. If you have more than 1 mpg file "MPlex_MuxedFile01.mpg", then there was an error in the VBR precalculations. This does not happen often, but if it does, then use the video .MPV file and audio .MP2 files instead. Good tutorial kyuuketsuki,...
