aww Yotsuba's so CUTE the English Manga has some of the Japanese sfx to I think!

Reading it in Japanese is cuter.

For example, (almost) all the stuff Yotsuba says is in hiragana. Even when using the same words as where kanji is used for adults.
Additionally, all her text is in larger font and bolded, while the adults' text is in unbolded small font, to indicate that she's always shouting.

Those kind of things get lost in translation, which is a very sad thing, because it's very cute.

Anison just refers to songs used in anime in general.

Yeah, but that's what I said. So what's a headphone/earphone that's tuned for anime? Some anime has a song mostly jazz, some mostly classical, some pop or rock. That's what FitEar said. That's what some people are looking for. If anisong is as diverse as the whole genre of music, the most logical answer to all of it is something neutral and transparent that it doesn't add nor mask anything from the original source. Therefore neutral signature masterrace.

But then why would they market it for animu? Wouldn't it be better to just call it 'AWESOMELY GOOD SOUNDING' and sell it as general purpose hi-fi? Or are they trying to address a niche that would otherwise never buy CIEM's by using false marketing?

I guess GPU will be the last thing to choose then. 

Because it isn't benchmarked. Nobody really cares for it.

I sort of never cared for NVIDIA because their higher end counterparts seem to outperform their NVIDIA competitors, at least the GHz Edition of the 7970 and the Boost Edition of the 7950 (it's just a revision with a higher base clock I think). Also because of the crippled memory bus which is one of the big reasons why AMD has a slight advantage in higher resolutions for games or benchmarks.

This.

 

Eh, I stopped looking at TomsHardware after lying about their PSU test facility. They just threw in a photo of CoolerMaster's PSU test equipment and room. I usually go to JonnyGuru anyways.

Hm... bread. Bread here is pretty good. Not sure if it passes the Rik'OK, he'll have to try it himself. Montreal (or Quebec?) is known in NA for good bakery products. Maybe because of the French heritage...?
Let me mail you some (lol).
Computer parts? *still rocking my HD4870x1@512mb*
Whats up with you guys suddenly interested in the T50RP.

Bread is awesome. End of story.

You'd have to move nos and it has to be in the infinitive or gerand (words ending in -ing in English) or something else...

 

I checked it with my teacher though by sending her an e-mail. Said I had it right and the website likes to go around trolling you sometimes (she didn't say it like that, obviously).

If you want that you might want to try to get a waffles key but it seems they're a lot more difficult to get into. I could check torrent-invites, but the demand for waffles vs the supply makes it a pain in the ass.

Really? Going to keep an eye on them now.

Yay!

This is full of win:




(for those that don't speak Japanese: in the third panel she literally says 'it's the switch that makes people come out [of the house]!')

And on the case ("Don't look." - Kiri Komori), We'll either go with a simple brushed aluminum or steel block with the small 19mm diameter (I think that was it) buttons from Bulgin that's flush to the surface. The other possibility was to use a case like the Yulong D100 II, 1704 DAC, DAH1 MK II, or Crystal DAC Amp (not the portable version, well...they look the same so why not?) but with the layout we have and probably without the text on the front panel unless we can come up with a name that basically everybody agrees on (No, not project-H and thank you, Boris, for not putting that on the PCB. Please don't. I'd feel compelled to not buy it for some reason).

 

 

Photos of the Yulong units I'm talking about. (Click to show)

Images not in order as listed.

 

 

 

 

Also, Boris, we'll be using screws with two hex nuts with a large surface area (or a really wide washer) in which we can use to clamp the PCB because I don't really want to go with superglue for the O2 PCB.

We can use either rivets (I like the look of countersunk rivets) or screws with a hex key. Philips head screws would be fine too. As long as they're flush to the surface (or a bit deeper into the front panel). For the volume knob, if we really can't find one without the teeth or the rubber rings to act as grips around the dial, we'll probably end up with the teeth because the rubber looks...cheap and odd. Front panel will be silver or black, preferably silver. Same with the knob (silver color).

Those Yulongs look pretty alike to standard Hammond cases.

Based on broken almost-incomprehensible machine translation, they did compare the MONET with their 334, and saying that it's more 'fun', whatever that means. Hence the astronomical price of it. Since it's the same level as the 334, at least that's what they reckon it as.

If dear ImperialX was not bogged down with endless exams, he would've burst in our thread and sing the praises to high heavens about the new Apple stuff. And frankly, I'm disappointed with Apple's iPad mini. Considering the price one would think that they would at least compete on the screen res, and not just rely on the brand name. Which still would make them money no doubt, but more guarded customers won't be so easily swayed IMO, considering the other 7" tablets (at least in the US).

I read the entire live stream thing on Anandtech. They definitely look nice, as usual, but yes, the specifications are pretty disappointing.

 

Edit: That and the fact that, as expected, soldered on RAM (soldered to motherboard) and they also used a non-standard solid state drive (uses your standard SATA connector I believe but a different form factor. The SSD is also used for, I think, cache only which you might be able to change).

 

I sometimes wonder why they don't just make a hole in the PCB for where the RAM should be, throw a connector on where the edge of the hole is on the board, and stick in the RAM so it's very low profile. The RAM PCB would be on the same plane as the motherboard PCB. Swappable RAM and low profile. Y U NO WANT TO INNOVATE THIS TIME APPLE?!

Spare me. He already spammed my Facebook news feed. If he would have gone inside here it'd be horrible, to be honest.
