Nuon was a technology developed by VM Labs that adds features to a DVD player. In addition to viewing DVDs, one can play 3D video games and use enhanced DVD navigational tools such as zoom and smooth scanning of DVD playback. One could also play CDs while the Nuon graphics processor generates synchronized graphics on the screen. There were plans to provide Internet access capability in the next generation of Nuon-equipped DVD players.

Nuon as DVD format
The Nuon platform was primarily marketed as an expanded DVD format. A large majority of Nuon players that were sold in fact resembled typical consumer DVD players with the only noticeable difference being a Nuon logo. Nuon players offered a number of features that were not available on other DVD players when playing standard DVD-formatted titles. These included very smooth forward and reverse functionality and the ability to smoothly zoom in and out of sections of the video image. In addition, Nuon provided a software platform to DVD authors to provide interactive software like features to their titles.
Nuon as gaming platform
Nuon originally started off as “Project X,” and was featured in Electronic Gaming Monthly’s 1999 Video Game Buyer’s Guide. One of the Nuon’s main software developers was Jeff Minter, who created a version of Tempest entitled Tempest 3000 for the system, and the built-in VLM-2 audio visualizer.
Hardware models

A Nuon DVD player made by Samsung
In North America, Nuon was used in the Samsung DVD-N501 and DVD-N2000 models, they also released several models in other parts of the world: DVD-N504 (Europe), DVD N505 (Europe), and DVD-N591 (Korea); a Toshiba SD-2300 DVD player; and two RCA models, the DRC300N and DRC480N. The Nuon was also used in Motorola’s Streamaster 5000 “Digital DNA” set-top box. However the format has appeared to have died off. As of November 2004, there are no Nuon-enabled DVD players shipping and no new Nuon software titles.

Homebrew development
During late 2001, VM Labs released a homebrew SDK which allowed people to be able to program apps/games for their NUON system. Only the Samsung DVD-N501/DVDN504/DVDN505 and RCA DRC300N/DRC480N can load homebrew games. The Samsung DVDN-2000 and the Toshiba cannot.[citation needed] The RCA DRC300N and RCA DRC480N cannot play commercial NUON games.[citation needed].
Homebrew releases
Several homebrew titles have been created for or ported to NUON. They are not commercially available and require the user to burn the material to a NUON-compatible CD-R.

Happy White Chef Carrying A Pizza Pie On A Stove Shovel Stock Photo – 6792903

It’s a pizza time, Dude! Yeah Dawg!!

Today is Wednesday, May 30th. Today, like everyday, I plan to cook something good in the kitchen….will she love it? Who knows, even if she does, the title says she won’t so I think we will keep everything consistent….

So let’s start with the fact that home-made pizza costs more than Little Ceasar’s $5 Pizza, or even a Tombstone Pizza. I have no idea why, but if you are doing this cooking thing to save money, I will stop you right now and tell you to get in the car and make a Caesar’s run. You could probably even grab some bread sticks or cheese bread and come out ahead. I will guess my recipe will cost you in the $12 to $14 range but taste as good as a Lupi’s pizza. If you are looking for an easy pizza recipe that will deliver a pizza as good as a Lupi’s Pizza, then keep reading below.

I will start with a pre-made crust from Pillsbury. You could buy a mix, or use flour and yeast to make the crust, but I have had very little luck doing it the hard way (this would save you $3 or so since a package of pizza dough is about 59 cents in comparison).

Also, the clean-up of flour is not fun. On the other hand, making it this way is more fun and authentic, so if you have a wife that loves to clean the kitchen, go for it… the directions are on the bag. Follow them to the T, then come back and finish up with my directions.

Okay, let’s get started. Here is what you will need for the pizza:

Pizza pan or cake pan…very important, some people don’t have one of these. If you buy one, get a non-stick pan. It will make life easier.
one tube of pizza crust, sold next to biscuit tubes in Dairy. (I got Pillsbury, for some reason Bi-Lo Brand does not rise very well).
some spaghetti or pizza sauce (They are essentially the same. Pizza Sauce is slightly thicker but it costs more, and you can use spaghetti Sauce later in the week if you close the jar tightly and put it in the fridge)
1/2 pound of hamburger
1/2 onion (chop up the other 1/2, and freeze can be used later)
1 green pepper
sliced portobello mushrooms
1 to 2 packs of mozzarella cheese
olive oil
Okay, let’s get started…This should make a huge Pizza that will feed 6 or so people. We got about 10 big slices out of it, leftovers for a few days…especially if you add a salad. (My wife didn’t get one, and she let me know how important a salad is. Interesting trivia: adding a salad is a cost saving idea if you are trying to feed several people, since vegetables will trick their stomachs into feeling full, leaving more pizza for you. Make sure to brag about this great salad, then even put some on your plate so they think that salads are great, or use salad bowls, leaving you with four slices and everyone else with one, they will never wise up to this trick.)

**Before we start, this is for a hamburger, onion, mushroom, and green pepper pizza. I have found that over 5 toppings does not make a good pizza.
Also I chose the above toppings because they where in the fridge, you can go with whatever you want…
Here is the recipe:

First, pre-heat the oven to 400 Degrees.
Now use the Crisco to grease the pizza pan (I use a paper towel to keep it off my hands)
Now put the pizza crust on the pizza pan. There should be a cut in the dough so that it can roll out. Then you will need to spread the dough out and mend together any spaces/holes if you don’t do this correctly. The crust will separate, as you will see in my pizza.
Very important: this is a step that I never knew to do. Once the oven is preheated, set timer to 8 minutes. (If you don’t do this then your crust will not cook correctly it will still be raw under the sauce.)
Put the crust in the oven on the middle shelf.
Get a skillet out and cook the hamburger.
Drain the grease from the hamburger.
Now chop the green pepper.(Don’t forget to cut out the heart. That’s the thing with seeds on it)
(I decided to pre-cook all the vegetables, but whether you want to do it is up to you. I have down it both ways, but I think this way is better).
Now take the skillet and put some olive oil in it.
Cook the green pepper and put it on the side.
Now get out the onion and chop it.
Cook the onion and put it on the side.
Now take the sliced mushrooms.

Cook the mushrooms and put them off to the side.
Once the pizza is pre-cooked, spread about a 1/2 cup of sauce on it. Spread it in a circular motion, then put the meat, onions, peppers, and mushrooms on the pizza.
Now its time to put the cheese on the pizza. I have found that one bag is not enough you will need another 1/4 a bag. Also, mozzarella is the best for pizza.
Set the timer for another 10 minutes…and put the pizza in the oven on the middle shelf.
Take it out of the oven, and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Now move the pizza from the pan to a cutting board. If you cut it on the pan you might damage the it. You know what your pan can handle.
Slice and serve.

Notice the pizza is not perfectly round because it did not get mended properly
“Pizza, be done, Perfection”

I was sitting here on the couch; you see….

The Greatest Adventurer Of All Time (The Exodus, pt. II).

What!?! How could they do this to our show…this guy knows how to blogith on the Sliders…go to for his more recent reviews…he be a wise man….Now it’s time to cook my next meal

Think of a Roulette Wheel

They were so close.

There we were, at the bottom of the pit.

And lo, we were handed a shovel.

Last week’s episode, “The Exodus, Part One,” was just another episode of Sliders. It is, perhaps obviously, this week’s episode that changes everything. What I’m trying to convey is the fact that it’s hard to separate myself from this entry. It’s hard for all of us, as Sliders fans, to separate ourselves from these two episodes. They remain with us. But god damn it, I’m going to try to withhold feelings— those feelings that are so deeply rooted. If you’re a true fan of Sliders, this is the episode that you never forget seeing, and it’s never a pleasant memory. But some of you haven’t ever seen these two episodes before. Good. I’m glad to be here for you.

Let’s get to it.

But it’s hard, isn’t it? Sliders has…
