1998-02-17 00:00:00 - How many? - (Kyle353@webtv.net)


Ok i'll start out by saying i'm sorry for the midi crap but i really don't want to take it off everytime i post here so im afraid you'll just have to put up with it. Now to my question.About how many Sliders eps can i fit onto one type w/o commercials or with.And after the new eps start up will they still continue to show reruns of the show on Monday nights?I consider myself an expert on the show and I haven't ever missed a show before.But i didn't have the money to tape all the shows for future enjoyment after the show has run its course.Now i have the money and i want a copy of the show so i won't just be left with memorys of it.I want to have the tapes so i i won't just be left with memorys of the best show to ever be made.But you people say i can't by copys of it anywhere and that i have to make my own.Well i understand this and i am going to make my own copys but un order to do so i need to know if reruns will continue to be shown even after the News ones have.Thanks for taking the time to read this. <html> <bgsound src=http://www.Jumpgate.net/~imagine/midi/JohnLennon/Imagine.mid autostart=loop> </html>

Each episode is an hour long. Minus the commercials, it's probably anywhere from 40-45 minutes long. You've got several tape options: a tape at SP speed(2 Hours) LP(4 hours) and EP(6 hours). Or you could buy an 8 hour tape, which will give you 8 hours of recording time on extended play. As for the show continuing on Mondays in June, I don't seee how that's possible since the fourth season will be airing in it's time slot, unless they are going to show a rerun from 8-9 and then the new eps from 9-10. Go to the Sci-Fi channel's feedback page (http://www.scifi.com/feedback) and ask them when they'll plan on showing all the reruns. I have heard the full slate of reruns won't start until 1999, but that could have been changed. Shannen

How many can you fit on one tape? Well, with commercials, taping at SLP, you can get in 6 episodes. I've heard of 8-hour tapes, where you can get 8 eps, but I don't think I've seen those yet.

What is the differance between the EP SP and the other thing?Will it look different or something on tape?And what is the best kind of tape for tapeing the show? <html> <bgsound src=http://www.Jumpgate.net/~imagine/midi/JohnLennon/Imagine.mid autostart=loop> </html>

WebTV *can* be set to post in all-text. I always advice these people to RTFM or ask his mom.

Let's see, YOU'RE the one saying you bought a machine incompatible with the standard newsgroup format for use in posting messages to newsgroups. So who's the "one who don't know shit mutha fucker"?

I'll just have to "put up with it?" The hell you say ... <plonk--the sound of yet another addition to my kill filter> Final suggestions: The spell checker is your friend. If WebTV offers such a facility, use it. If you use so many "i's" that you can't be bothered with capitalizing them, then you're using too many of them. Paragraph breaks are not just something your teacher made up to give you a hard time in English class. Use them. Finally, ask someone with a clue to explain the difference between MIDI and MIME. -- Robert B.

I use a text-mode news reader and so get the delightful (hack, cough, barf) experience of seeing all the HTML code generated by morons that post HTML messages in ng's.

Fortunately, I believe that this will only work with a browser, as I don't believe that news readers, even Netscape's or IE's, can load the necessary plug-in. -- ********************************************************************* * Rick Fidonet - 1:342/42.8 Internet - rtruell@v-wave.com * *********************************************************************

He probably *does* know the difference (although it could be debatable, since he doesn't know the difference between WebTV and a *real* ISP!), but his reference to midi was correct. If you read my last message, you'll know that he does indeed have code to play a midi embedded in his messages. -- ********************************************************************* * Rick Fidonet - 1:342/42.8 Internet - rtruell@v-wave.com * *********************************************************************

I piggybacked onto the first reply in this thread because the original never showed up on my server. I thought that I might have missed part of his post and might have missed a reference. Darn good explaination of his post, though. I learned to code HTML shortly after Mosaic v1. was released. I can't believe some of the lame things it's used for nowadays.

I usually can fit up to 7 or 8 eps by editing commercials and extraneous (sp) credits by using SLP on a 6 hour tape. I have all but 2 eps of the series on tape now. I have a friend who gets the SciFi channel who said she'd tape the new eps for me. Can't wait
