If you don’t know the plot, the rock you live under must be rather large. The original Donkey Kong is when Nintendo truly began to create gaming as we know it today. One man, with one mission that creates a simplistic game that has spawned 30+ years of Mario. This game basically created the whole Nintendo franchise, by helping non-gamers identify with the most well-known mascot of all time. Although the plot had been done many times before (rescue princess, defeat bad guy) no other game captured the eye and love of so many gamers at that time.
Unfortunately for later gamers this classic gem has been lost. This isn’t through Nintendo’s lack of trying as the game has appeared in Donkey Kong 64 and the Donkey Kong game on Game Boy. However, it hasn’t been the main focus of the game it’s been involved in and due to this a lot of aspects have been lost (such as difficulty and playability). In 2012 the homebrew community was invited to relive the classic (with updated graphics) on Nintendo’s definitive, Super Nintendo console, courtesy of Bubble Zap.
Classic Kong isn’t a reimagining of the game as seen within numerous other titles or repetition of the game, it’s a complete remake of the original arcade Donkey Kong, done by using graphics reminiscent of Game Boy Advance titles. The aim is simple in that you need to advance through the stage by reaching the top of the level, using a system of ladders and moving platforms. This is done to complete the stage, but also reflects upon the bitter struggle to save the princess. The real challenge is timing in this game (just like the original) with the speed and mechanics of our beloved protagonist Mario similar (if not the same) as the original. However, the difference is that Mario has become a beautifully coloured sprite, set in the backdrop of a wondrously, vivid landscape.
The game differs slightly in that the items and sprites have changed, but given the evolution that the Super Nintendo brought to home consoles, if this game was released by Nintendo themselves in the 90’s, one would assume that the game would definitely look similar to this. However, Bubble Zap did expand on what I feel Nintendo wouldn’t have done choosing characters emphatically cartoonish opposed to the original set block type, commonly seen in other Snes Mario games. The sprites are more reflective of Nintendo’s evolution into the GBA years. This is a good thing as Mario seems more approachable, just like the feelings gamers had with the arcade version done for a renewed audience.
The reimagining is beautiful and as gaming evolves it’s always pleasant to reminisce through playing re-mastered favourites. The game is still as addictive as it was all those years ago, with the added bonus that it is now a Super Nintendo game. Classic Kong takes the familiar embellishes the favourite and combines the two beautifully, to ensure those who missed its brilliance the first time roundFree Web Content, will surely be hooked upon this update.

Kodor Electronics gives a boost to the digital cinema initiative today with the release of the KodeKey Professional Zip Platform for Windows and Mac OS X computer systems.
Movie studios are expected to make wide investments in digital cinema upgrades in 2009 following a ten-year research and development period starting with the 1999 digital release of Walt Disney Pictures Bicentennial Man. Digital films are packaged and distributed using an industry standard specification called the Digital Cinema Package (DCP). Part of the DCP specification is the digital film MXF container that can range in single file sizes of 60GB to 500GB. Today, digital films are delivered by hard drive or satellite data transmission using fulfillment services from companies like Technicolor, Kodak, and Deluxe. Legacy celluloid reel manufacturing and distribution costs movie studios up to $1500 a print per theater. Digital distribution provides a dramatic drop in initial distribution investment for movie studios but has proven to be a bit costly due to hard drive delivery and expensive satellite rental time. The cost savings reserved from digital versus celluloid distribution is planned for investments into digital projector upgrades for theater vendors by the movie studios.
Delivering a system with an average per film distribution cost of $70, the KodeKey Zip technology is an online powered zip format that replaces the internal data storage of a traditional zip file with the cloud storage infrastructure of the Amazon Web Services S3 platform. By using an upload and download manager, the format can manage hundreds of gigabytes of data in a zip file less than 1 kilobyte in size per movie.
Optionally, the format can create 1,344,000-bit password certificates to add additional access protection as an accessory to KDM encryption keys sent to theater vendors to unlock playback rights for MXF containers.
Broadband delivery of digital films has been a challenge in the past due to poor TCP connections and poor designs of online storage servers required to handle single file sizes above 5GB. KodeKey Zip has been tested and approved for up to 1TB of single file archiving validated by rigorous 12-mode hash string calculation certification.
“KodeKey Zip has been designed to easily deliver 300GB digital films as an e-mail attachment to thousands of theaters simultaneously”, says inventor and Chairman William G. Blanchard, “We are honored to work with the digital film initiative and look forward to provide support to the digital movie industry worldwide.”

It would be very ridiculous to discuss the usage of lenses in photography. After all, how will photography ever be possible if you do not have the right kind of lens fitted inside your digital camera? Their use is very important. From a different perspective, one can say that the advantages that come from their use are many.
If a photographer uses the canon telephoto lens, then the images clicked from the digital camera will have an appealing texture. The telephoto lens has an innate ability of capturing the image as it is, without any distortions or blurring. It ensures that the image comes out as its original self. The creative urge of the photographer will be satisfied. He will not get a feeling that the image came out differently, completely opposite to his expectations. These lenses are quite expensive. Instead of directly purchasing them, it would be wise to rent them through camera lens rental or canon camera lens rental.
A technically advanced lens like the wide angle lens will ensure wide images. Though the photographer might stand at a distance still the image come out wide. It seems as if the photographer was at proximity with the image. The wide angle lens has been built to capture the image from a certain width. The wide angle lens is usually used by photographers to capture multiple objects. They have to be squeezed in together, which distorts the visual appeal of the photographers. To avert this, the lens is used so that the width is retained and the picture comes out well.
The lenses used in photography also offer good resolution and extensive zoom feature. The resolution ensures clarity in photograph. The photograph will always have properly placed pixels which make it look good. Every color and pixel of the picture will be viewed clearly by the viewer. Zoom feature is another unique advantage. The zoom feature ensures that the photographer is able to close in on the picture. The distance may be there though, but the photographer is easily able to take a close shot. The picture that comes out happens as if it has been taken at a very close distance. The lenses that make this possible can be rented from good stores at nominal camera lens rental and canon camera lens rental.
There are other uses too. For various genres of photography like wild life, aerial, wedding and portrait, there are different lenses. The usage too happens accordingly. Since all of these offer different advantages, every genre can be covered well.
The use of lenses in photography is a very well defined process. The right lens for the right type of photography guarantees good results. A wrong choice makes the process look very unconvincing. It is very important to use the right lens so that the pictures can be taken well and they reflect all the qualities they should. That is the right lens being used in the process is strictly advocated.
There are so many types of photography that a photographer can indulge in, that lenses automatically become an integral part of the whole process. Aerial photography would require different lenses, wedding photography would have different lenses being fitted in, and portrait photography again comes with a different requirement and

The thrill and adventure is best when it is dealt with time-bound sequences of events. This is exactly what the drama series 24 presents to the viewer. It brings together many fictional people and organizations mostly in some scenario that when you watch regularly, builds itself to be a great political thriller. Each season, the base of the story is always such plots, and the characters are woven accordingly and to perfection. The only character to have been a part of every season and every episode, is the character of Jack Bauer, which is played by Kiefer Sutherland.

This organization is the center of all the activities in all but one of the 8 seasons of the show. The organization is run under direct federal control. It has basically two important departments: one is the external one that comprises of agents and field officials like Jack Bauer, and the other is the internal one which has analysts and technical people.
The show has a pattern that it follows in terms of its episodes, and that is, that they consist of narrative twists, which end in a cliffhanger fashion that results in the viewers not missing any of the episodes. The viewers have loved the show so much, that they search for it and watch 24 online as well. The previous seasons are also quite popular on the internet.
