    Generation eight of Pokémon is officially here, as this morning Nintendo announced Pokémon Sword and Shield, to release this fall on the Switch. The pair of games are three-dimensional and cel-shaded. Pokémon Sword and Shield will be the first mainline games in the series to appear on a home console, they’ll take place in a new region (“Galar”), with a whole bunch of new Pokémon, including three starters that Nintendo showed off in a trailer this morning: Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble. The previous generation of monster-collecting games, gen seven, began with Pokémon Sun and Moon on the 3DS in 2016. Now, three years later, it’s time for the next one.

    The first movie released on VHS was The Young Teacher, a South Korean drama about a teacher who organizes a volleyball game at her school to boost self-confidence and school spirit in her students. While the film received little recognition, the VHS format proved to be very successful and quickly became the number one format for buying and selling movies.

    The site migration was completed, albeit with a few bumps along the way that made it take like 6 hours instead of 2 and a half, lol. Really sorry about that, but things should be working properly again. Notice - Site Migration When: February 26, 2019 at 7:30 PM Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours What: Site migration to a different server Sorry for the short notice on this one, but it's important. I will be migrating the forums off of the current server onto my own servers. This is because, at this point, we're essentially paying for server hardware resources we're not even really using, and this is due in large part to the removal of downloads from the site. It simply doesn't make any sense to continue to pay for the server the forums are on because of this, so I have instead made an offer to Koby to host the forums on my own server, free of charge. To facilitate this move, I will be deactivating the forum website right around 7:30 PM CST this evening. I've set aside 2.5 hours to perform the move, but if things go as planned it'll not take the entire window to do. The gameplan is as follows: At or around 7:30 PM CST, deactivate the forum website in the webserver configuration, redirect all traffic to a static page Perform full database dump (expected time: about 15-30 minutes maximum) After confirming dump integrity, migrate the dump file to the new server and import it (expected time: about 15-30 minutes maximum) Begin transferring website-related files to the new server (expected time: about 45 min to an hour maximum) Migrate webserver configuration files to the new server, and locally test configuration (expected time: about 10 minutes or so) Make the necessary changes within DNS (expected time: will vary depending on various ISP's DNS caching policies and refreshes) Obviously, since I have offered to host the forums completely free of charge, this raises the question for many of you: should I still donate? The answer to that is, absolutely! Even though I will be hosting the site itself free of charge, Koby still has to pay the licensing costs of the forum software itself as well as the themes. So yes, continue to donate. The only change is that money will just be used to keep the forum software license current as well as pay for these wonderfully designed themes we have. Oh and, of course, @Koby is still insistent upon compensating me for the trouble even though I said I'd do it for free (stubborn guy, LOL), so a portion might also be used for that as well. As always, IRC and Discord will both remain available. Again sorry for the short notice, but this move is that important and we feel that it's the best way to move forward from here. Thank you for your understanding!

    Did you know... that the first phone book was only 20 pages long , was issued in 1878 and was apparently very short ? Since the phone was only invented two years before , it makes sense that not everyone was on board with the new technology yet . Strangely enough , the first phone book also instructed readers to “commence the conversation by saying , ‘'Huolla!''

    Fact of the Day - TELEPHONE Did you know... that “Ahoy” was the original telephone greeting? Alexander Graham Bell suggested ‘ahoy’ (as used in ships), but was later superseded by Thomas Edison, who suggested ‘hello’ instead. Also, the very first phone call was: “Watson come here, I want you!” It was made on March 10, 1876 in Boston, Massachusetts, between Alexander Graham Bell and his assistant Thomas A. Watson

    Did you know... that you can’t directly see a black hole ? Because a black hole is indeed “ black ” ( no light can escape from it ) , it’s impossible for us to sense the hole directly through our instruments , no matter what kind of electromagnetic radiation you use ( light , x-rays , whatever ) . The key is to look at the hole’s effects on the nearby environment , points out NASA . Say a star happens to get too close to the black hole , for example. The black hole naturally pulls on the star and rips it to shreds . When the matter from the star begins to bleed toward the black hole , it gets faster , gets hotter and glows brightly in x-rays .

    This is best illustrated by one person (call them Unlucky) falling into a black hole while another person (call them Lucky) watches. From Lucky’s perspective, Unlucky’s time clock appears to be ticking slower and slower. This is in accordance with Einstein’s theory of general relativity, which (simply put) says that time is affected by how fast you go, when you’re at extreme speeds close to light. The black hole warps time and space so much that Unlucky’s time appears to be running slower. From Unlucky’s perspective, however, their clock is running normally and Lucky’s is running fast.

    Did you know... that a giraffe only needs 1.9 hours of sleep a day, whereas a brown bat needs 19.9 hours a day. The extremes of both sleep deprivation and being the biggest lazy f*ck you can be. Also, did you know that the record for the longest period without sleep is 11 days... had to believe when I can barely manage 24 hours.

    Usually sleepers pass through four stages: 1, 2, 3, and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. These stages progress cyclically from 1 through REM then begin again with stage 1. A complete sleep cycle takes an average of 90 to 110 minutes, with each stage lasting between 5 to 15 minutes. The first sleep cycles each night have relatively short REM sleeps and long periods of deep sleep but later in the night, REM periods lengthen and deep sleep time decreases.

    Did you know... that whisky does not age further once bottled ? Therefore a whisky bottled in 1999 as 10 years old , is not now 20 years old in 2019 . However , whiskies bottled in decades or centuries ago can show some change , especially if the closure is not air-tight .

    Did you know... that long ears, long life? Well, at least that’s what the ancient Chinese thought. The ancient Chinese believed that each part of the ear represented a different prospect. The length of the earlobe denoted long life, and its thickness, wealth. As a result, kings and emperors of old China are depicted with extremely long ears (as are many statues of Buddha).

    Fact of the day - EAR Your ears never stop hearing, even when you sleep. Your brain just ignores incoming sounds. Also, after eating too much, your hearing is less sharp.

    MOLLUSKS MAKE ONLY ONE SHELL. Mollusks use calcium carbonate and proteins, secreted from their mantles, to build their shells. As a mollusk grows, so does its exoskeleton. “They are among the few animals on the planet that wander around carrying with them the same body armor they had as babies; the pointy tip or innermost whorl is the mollusk’s juvenile shell,” Scales writes. “Day by day, the mollusk shell slowly expands, making room for the soft animal growing inside.” Hermit crabs are arthropods that use shells to protect themselves but they don't take the shell from their respective owners, instead they wait for the owner to die naturally or get eaten by a predator. Only after that, they occupy the shells.

    Did you know... that Nascar drivers can lose 5-10 pounds in sweat during a race ? If a driver loses more than 3 percent of his body weight in sweat and doesn’t replace those fluids , focus and reflexes start declining .

    Did you know... Voyager I and II are carrying record albums made of copper that are analog time-capsules from the late 1970s (when the spacecraft were launched). The albums contain greetings in fifty-five languages, musical selections from different eras and cultures, and information about where the records came from. Voyager 1 is 12 billion miles and Voyager 2 is 10 billion miles from Earth, making those two records arguably the most widely distributed albums of all time.
