Great idea: the CPOPL license permits such artistic reframing, media extension. Just remember that Bob must appear ... his complete image ... on-screen, undistorted, unobscured by other graphic elements, and never less than 128 points tall.

The new Dark Crystal series on Netflix makes me feel like a kid again
The nostalgia clouds my judgement, but I'm pretty sure it's a good watch even without the nostalgia
I had the movie (taped from TV) on VHS and I must've watched it every weekend, good old times!
I went from the Dark Crystal to Crystal Meth, but the worst was yet to come... Crystal Reports!
My family gave my a choice: quit Crystal Reports or you'll never see us again.
I went into rehab and I'm sticking to the meth now
It's a prequel, so it tells how the Skeksis wiped out all of the Gelflings (except for Jen and Kira, of course).
Everything has to be made into a series nowadays.
Stuff like Fargo, From Dusk Till Dawn, A Series Of Unfortunate Events, LOTR, Marvel and DC both have at least five running series...
And then there are the hundreds of original series that aren't based on a book or movie.
Sometimes I'm reading about a new upcoming series and I can only roll my eyes and sigh...
In the case of The Dark Crystal it's worth it though
CodeWraith and I were having a discussion about level shifting found the thing from TI I have used in the past for level shifting: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/txb0108.pdf Down side more IC's Up side easier interfacing...
I have found this 8 bit bus transceiver[^], also from TI. It's very similar to the old 74XX245 bus transceivers that I have used for many years. I just have not found anyone who sells them yet.
Now I already have two reasons to level shift my data bus. The first was to interface a PIC32 as VGA graphics chip with built in video memory. The second is a USB interface for memory sticks. It takes care of the entire file system and offers a simple parallel 8 bit interface, again at 3.3 V. That would be all the SSD/hard disk this little computer will ever need, but I will also try to use yet another PIC as IDE port.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
Weller do a "wave tip" for their irons, which allows you to solder SMT IC's with a single pass per row.
Ask me no more about it: Herself was the soldering expert, and could hand solder 304 pin 0.5mm spacing QFP ARM processors with two tacks and four swipes for prototyping. And they worked!

Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

The chances of me doing that are just left of zero.
