Hatsukoi Limited manga vs. anime; AMD TWKR

Saki-nee: HOT STUFF
Saki-nee: HOT STUFF
EDIT: Kawashita Mizuki’s new manga Anedoki on July 6th!!! FUCK YEAH BABY.
I’ve been rereading Hatsukoi Limited for the past couple days, religiously going through each chapter (except for Watarase “Big Boob”‘s chapters, because her bigboobphear is just silly, and Chikura’s because there’s no drama in it whatsoever) and picking my brains figuring out how in the world Arihara got a girl like Misaki. Since watching the anime, I’ve come to appreciate the series as a whole even more. It must be the voices from the anime popping into my head as they say their lines (the anime is quite faithful to the manga), because face it, coloured moving characters with voices are more natural than still pictures and text bubbles.

Also, it seems rumours of AMD handpicked overclocking chips are true after all. It’s called the Phenom II TWKR Black Edition, I’m not convinced that the 42 part is going to make it to the retail name. INQ says the Phenom has been pushed up to 7GHz, and the i7 only managed 6GHz (although of course, the i7 would still be faster). The record still belongs to a Cedar Mill Pentium 4, which cranked out 8GHz.

… and I’m still not studying

despite the fact that exams start on 13th of July. I love self discipline!

In other news, apparently Boxtorrents suffered a coup d’etat and became BakaBT. And for some reason, everything I posted there has been deleted. Well, it’s not like 9 posts matters much, I was always on Hongfire/Nekochan. One thing I hate about BakaBT is that everybody there seeds, so it’s hard to get my own ratio up.

Music: Have you heard FPM’s Belinda May remix? By reading this post, you are obligated to click on that link and turn up the volume. I just knew that it was from a movie while listening to the remix. While you’re at it, download the FLAC album of the remixes and originals from Demonoid. The Good, Bad, and the Ugly, and a Fistful of Dollars were some that I recognized. Metti Una Sera A Cena is also a very nice song, I’ll put it up here after this post. Then there’s Yoshinori Sunahara, Denki Groove, Cymbals (it’s really hard to find Cymbals music), and some other stuff I forgot. I discovered all these through last.fm – my music collection has been frozen solid for some time now as I relisten and relisten. I guess my real love isn’t listening to music, it’s listening to music I haven’t heard before. Luckily, in this day and age, such a fetish is easily sated.

Urusei Yatsura is fun to watch, like all Takahashi series. I gotta say I prefer Maison Ikkoku, though – perhaps it’s because it lies closer to home? and it relies less on gags.

Eden of the East just ended. In my opinion it’s a pretty wimped out ending that doesn’t show me any other Selecao, but what do you expect from 11 episodes? Proof: two movies are coming to further the storyline, obviously they knew 11 episodes weren’t enough from day 1.

Hatsukoi Limited didn’t actually suck, which was a welcome surprise. I even liked the ED, which had plenty of Saki-nee in it and even the girl-i-forgot-wasser-name in a nurse outfit. I read the manga, so my opinion matters and counts double.

Haruhi season 2: meh.

LOGH Gaiden Spiral Labyrinth: YEAH BABY!!!!! THEY DON’T MAKE STUFF LIKE THIS NOWADAYS.

Attack the Gas Station was a really fun Korean movie. I love it, and I will definitely be rewatching it. There are precious few movies I rewatch – I can recite them off the top of my head: Perfect Blue, GITS, Ocean Waves, and now Attack the Gas Station. The only thing is, the only high quality version you can find nowadays is on eMule. Check VeryCD.

Spice and Wolf in HD is very nice. Too bad 13 episodes manages to hog the entirety of a dual layer DVD+R and more, it seems…

Evangelion 1.11: what an upgrade. not.

I need to download a complete collection of Mozart’s works (oh baby) and probably Haydn, Liszt, and if the LOGH soundtrack is anything to go by, Bruckner, Mahler, and a little Brahms (I hate Brahms). Note to anime studios: save money by playing classical and put the rest to your animation/art budget!

AIX 6.1 had a really weird slow boot issue where it asked the DNS server constantly for its own hostname/IP combo which I already defined in /etc/hosts – apparently it consults Bind/DNS by default before /etc/hosts. They were right when they said everything’s backwards in AIX.

When I browse Nekochan, I get an overwhelming urge to get a Tezro/Fuel/Origin 350 with a SAS/SATA card and a 2TB WD HDD. When I browse alternate.de, I get the same thing, but for a Core i7/Phenom II X4 and high end MVA/S-IPS Eizo LCDs (sidenote: does the Eizo Flexscan L367 use PVA, like the L767 does? In any case, it looks WAY better than my laptop’s LCD). Eizo sells a couple TN+ panels, but for the price they’re selling those at, I might as well get 2″ more (general formula) and buy a TN Samsung with a higher resolution for 100EURs less. How the hell did the corporations instill this consumerific urge within me?

Phrack, 2600, and the general wails of the scene “degrading” from within the scene. Buffer overflows. Hardening AIX, IRIX, Linux. You can’t harden Windows. nmapping everybody on the dorm’s LAN? heh… I wonder how I would cover my tracks… surely a spoofed MAC wouldn’t be enough.

SSH for Windows is useless… there’s little you can do in Windows with a command line, save taskkill and tasklist.

The only song I like from Queen is Bohemian Rhapsody.

Sergio Leone, Ennio Morricone, and Westerns.

Back to technisch; German Girls

It’s pretty obvious. I’ve run fresh out of ideas for it, and there’s no way I’m going to leave up an unfinished theme. Schubert had great success with his Unfinished work, though.

Also, DAMN YOU ROLLCHAN ENABLE THE FUCKING COMMENTS ALREADY I NEED TO FLAME YOU BECAUSE I’M SO JEALOUS OF YOUR PS3.

Also, I would like to take this moment to express my love for all German girls. They make me genuinely masculine, and make me strive to become even more masculine for their sake. Had I stayed in Malaysia for university, I would have undoubtedly become totally fucking gay.

Persona PSP coming to US/Blog now XHTML 1.0 Trans. Compliant

http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/57385
For once, Shacknews reports something of worth.

Anyway, I’ve been going through all my old posts making them domain independent and XHTML compliant by inserting alt=”” into all img elements. It’s hard work, really. And I only just found out about the WordPress XHTML validator plugin… sigh.

Debian 5 ‘lenny’ is out

The reason this is news is because that each time a new Debian release is marked ‘stable’, a couple blue moons pass. Also, I need to cook dinner, and I haven’t anything particularly significant to say, save that Onegai Teacher was really retarded at times, with some seriously artificial cliches placed there to tug at my heartstrings, but my heartstrings are pretty used to all this shit (Kanon, CLANNAD, the last scene of Top wo Nerae) so being the muscular heartstrings they are, it didn’t work.

Poor Onegai Teacher. It had its moments too, though undoubtedly scarce. Must be Misumi and Hyosuke, and Mizuho’s family. That’s about all. Kei’s illness felt like some kind of new dressed-up gimmick that reeked of some old cliche that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Anyway, I’ll still go to school and download Onegai Twins. After all, nekoneko has a poster of Onegai Twins… might as well check it out. And BTW, that’s some serious hardware in that screenshot. Really nice Fuel, really nice room. Lightwave? Modo? SGI Fuel? Two 1920×1200 displays? Tons of posters, all aesthetically matching? Damn…

Cisco’s Valentine’s Day Gift

Cisco’s Valentine’s Day Gift
I hate all that Youtube embedding shit. Somehow it always manages to reset itself after I edit the post a few times, so I have to regen the code and paste it back in here, so here’s a link. So what if my ‘readers staying on this page vs. readers following outgoing links’ ratio is 1:1000?

EDIT: Obligatory image to spice up my blog… I sure could use some chicken right about now.

I’m back on Fate/Stay Night

I’ll get to the end of this novel eventually. Once I’ve finished internalizing Carnegie’s How To Win Friends And Influence People, the 48 Laws of Power, and reading Haggard’s She and Allan, and Ayesha: the Return of She. And don’t forget Double Your Dating and Conquer Your Campus. Yes, I am uncool like that. Flame me.

And Legend of Galactic Heroes still isn’t up on fucking Crunchyroll.
