It's just such a waste.
Maybe KyoAni should make a remake a couple years later as with Kanon.
I think most high schools don't have such educational licenses. Perhaps a university does, like how I can get free licenses of Visual Studio and Mathematica, for example.
Except I forgot to order a PCB.
And it wasn't a replacement part. It's a completely new part I didn't have before. It was the PCB of the power switching board.

 

First episode of Little Busters had to be the most disappointing of the season. Animation was pretty bland but honestly, so was everything else so I'm not going to get too pissy about animation. I'm not sure if it's just the work itself or JC Staff but I have faith in both studios so I'm not giving up yet. That being said, Little Busters is the one KEY work I've never been particularly interested in. Only the studio name attached to it ever made it noteworthy. The characters, antics, jokes, and overall interactions just were flat this episode and I am pretty dumb founded at the moment...oh well, we'll see what happens. Like I said, I still have faith!

I shifted to manga a few years back when I was getting fed up of watching bad animes 

 

Been trying to jump back on the wagon again however :D 

 

Hah, I felt behind just not watching for a season! Can't imagine how you'd feel. Then again, I've always been an anime first kind of guy.

Lately though I've become better at judging whether an anime is good or not before watching. And I do still regularly drop stuff I don't like.
I personally didn't read manga all that much though, since I somehow found it annoying trying to read it off my screen. It was less annoying to read it off my phone, but there the screen is kinda small so it's far from ideal. As a result I've only been really reading manga when I'm on vacation.
Nowadays though, I spent my Thursday and Friday afternoon in Europe's one and only public manga library/cafe. Reading manga in paper format for €0.17 per volume is so much better. biggrin.gif

 

Over time I just gained a method of evaluation and it has helped my intake control for the most part but my personality just makes it so sometimes I take a risk on anime that I'm on edge about. This makes it so I still drop a few anime a season. I actually averaged it out that since I started watching anime by the season as frequently as I do now, I drop about 19% of my shows.

Anyway, what I've been up to. Well not much really since I spend my time focusing on school work although I will soon get a Fostex T50RP that I will plan to mod them.

Other than that, I've watched the first episode of Zetsuen no Tempest. Quite nice actually, can't wait for the next episode.

 

What it do Vortex? Tempest was pretty awesome for me too.

Well, for comparison of course! Plus, I think I'm using that for gaming and Project H for music. That is, if the STX IS for gaming

 

No back button please

Glossy = fingerprint magnet

 


 

SO many prawn hentai (darn it) ANIME!

I could make my own seedbox lol

 


 

Youkoso!

 

*Ahem*

 

Your first warning: Beware of how fast this thread goes.
 
Your first advice: No, you don't have to read all missed posts.
 
Our wish: Become a regular here.

 

 

 

LOL!

Dunno how long is your flight, but I always just sleep the whole flight so that I won't feel the pain in my ears

 

 

The thing that should be missing are the buttons at the back.

It's subjective. I wanna know how's an objectivist's answer LOL

 

Too bad Haiby won't like it though

 


 

Isn't the original O2 does not have op-amps? I wonder if it's possible to hear the amp with and without the op-amp

 

 

About state Y. I'm assuming both the AMP and DAC are on since I don't think you have channeled the power separately. I think

 

been a long time I've done the hybrid

Congratulation. Nice job pulling a "Hybrid".

 

NOOOOOOOO. NOT THE STARVING STUDENT (I'm actually starting to eat now...).

 

I never liked glossy (well, it looks fine on a piano though...) so obviously we aren't doing that, and I wanted a brushed look anyways. If we can't go brushed, we're going for a minimalist solid look (as in just the plain surface w/ nothing done to it).

 

Lol.

 

Haha! I think I have that in the OP.

 

Buttons on the back = kill me. I'm fine with those ridiculously small reset buttons because, well, it's for reset but anything else will make me unhappy. Push button are a little too easy to...well...push, sometimes. Still, rocker switches ftw. The only buttons that won't go in are those giant bulky vandal switches which I have not taken a liking too unless I do my modifications.

 

Nope, I wouldn't.

 

I'm pretty sure it does have Op-Amps.

 

Both of the units will always be on. There are 2 modes; one in which they are connected internally and the other in which they are not connected internally (or simply put, they work together in one and are separate units in the other mode).

 

Yup...I haven't been doing them that often...

Boris already ordered buttons and buttons don't make any sense on the back. I think Haibu doesn't like it, hehe. Well, mayhaps he can pay a little more for his own fancier custom case if boris didn't mind? I like minimalist looking stuff, but I also like the mad scientist contraption DIY look as well, and I already think it's amazing that boris is even doing this in the first place so I won't be too picky :)

 

And yes, when in state Y they would both be powered on, but acting as separate units.

Well, I'm still trying to think about how to design the buttons. I have an idea. I don't mind anything that isn't too flashy on the front. Give me some time. I need to finish studying quickly and if I have time, work on an essay due a few days afterward (and some online language thing...).

True, can't be too picky or else make our own amp

 

Well, I thought it'll be a waste to just leave both on instead of the one you are using to be turned on only. Oh well

It doesn't really matter because it's not going to make much of a difference as far as power draw goes.

What? I don't think they're removing posts. Maybe on the OCN thread but that's just about it. The glitching pages is due to Huddler's slower response times compared to lighter foundations such as vBulletin.

Bowei:

 

 

Widely used in highschools of Hong Kong, bowei is used to describe a role model for slacking. A bowei usually sleeps for long hours (12 hours plus), has a lame sense of humor, gets all the mainland chicks and has a way to get out of everything. (as expected of a panda)

Rik:

 

Lol, I'm not going to post the definition because it's a bit offensive.
Boris:
The often overlooked pinnacle of awesome. He is an enigma, nobody knows what he's thinking nor feeling at the moment, yet this is what makes him appealing to EVERYONE. Handsome, intelligent, friendly, and refined, it is hard to find a single word that can encapsulate the greatness he exudes. To be a Boris is to be the ultimate underdog; everybody seems to underestimate and even forget about him, but he never fails to blow minds whenever it's his time to shine.
ME:The most amazing person in the entire universe. Everything about him is perfect! He's charming, handsome, intelligent, strong, romantic, funny...everything you want in a guy. It's impossible not to fall in love with him! Once you lay eyes on him, you will know from that very moment that you will never stop loving him. XD

Haha...well I don't feel like trying.

I only lived out my youth until 4th grade. 5th grade killed it for me because it was the year I lived in China and went to a pretty difficult school compared to the failed "schools" I went to before that. After that was depression all-day-every-day.

Agreed. 21 seems like the magic year. After that you just wish you were younger (with some exceptions like me. lol)

@rikkun
Looking at the number of posts removed, its a godsend we are still active... Thank them for being understanding

Aw...

 

She's asking a very nice man at Pfizer's IT department to approve of a list of parts I'm coming up with but he just does minor things like reimage computers and such to put them into service again. He found 3 old Lenovo ThinkCenters I took apart and rebuilt though. They all booted up except for one that didn't post in the first place. I can't believe she still doesn't trust me. After that she's going to ask 20 other people or more who know absolutely NOTHING about computers. BOW DOWN TO THE MASTER GEEK/NERD RACE!

 

WHAT? THEY ARE REMOVING POSTS?

I took me 1.5 hour just to get the chip up and running to flash some LEDs...

LOL. Sorry, I had to laugh at a failure today.

Oops. Wow. I have no idea how I cash in 2000 points for 12.5 GB upload by accident. *Facepalm*

 

Biggest failure of the day everybody. Well, at least I have a ratio of 14.31 (as of now) and 31.42GB up. Time to stockpile points again...

Lol I'm saving up 10k for the 70gb upload... About 1/3 of the way there.

Wish I didn't do that. I want 70GB...but then again I still need to upload 5 torrents to become an active member. IIRC both of the MikuDB Megatorrents are already on JPopsuki so...I can't really do anything...I'll never become a power user. (TT-TT)

post #34416 of 121008

I'll never be a power user either lol. But that's because I choose not to upload anything.

 

 

@__@ DLing 16GB of VSTi's...

I guess there's one method worth trying which is uploading MikuDB files in a torrent instead of having them just throw it all into the mega torrents.

I had some random Chu Ishikawa albums laying around that weren't on there. While it ain't exactly fitting the definition of 'pop', it sure is Japanese.

Well perhaps it is fitting 'pop', since all the albums are film scores of relatively popular horror movies, which is part of 'pop culture'.

GOOD NEWS EVERYBODY! MY MOTHER SAID THAT IF MY COMPUTER IS <$1000 (give or take a few dollar, probably) SHE WOULD PAY FOR 1/2 OF IT. THAT GIVES ME A SPARE $500 SO I'LL STILL HAVE $1000 (excluding the audio project)! /good-news-sort-of-kind-of-not-really-I-don't-know

 

She'll flip when she hears I'm spending another $500 on audio though and will say that she won't pay for it. I can hold off on a new desk and chair though.

I just listened to LiSA's album called Family. The song "New Days" sounds ridiculously like some Girls' Generation song (when they were in that "cute and colorful" phase, basically, makes me think of the styling used for Gee...such a catchy song. Hate it now...). Only the beginning though.

Lol. I'll spend $1000 and then say I'll pay for the accessories (mouse, mousepad, etc.) by myself. I'm a little weary on spending $500 for audio though...that's pretty uncomfortable. She'll fliip anyways.
