This IS the J-ACG thread you know.

I used japanese because a perfect translation to english is not possible.

but I means something along the lines of "we're same type of people (with some excitement)" followed by a "LOL"

Damnit, I wanna watch animu but my school network blocks nyaa + torrent traffic.

and my server seems to be offline for whatever reason.

You're trying to run a what? Also, I failed to promote Nozomi to be this month's theme. I have failed. *seppuku*

Thanks, yes I do!!  I am the boss.  We are coordinating gas transportation projects in south-east Asia, it is about moving gas from A to B, with pipes, cylinders, trucks, ships and so on.

You must wear Kana's I am boss. T-shirt. (minami-ke ref.)

Today's my final exam day.
Tomorrow is going to be an epic day. MLP S3 starts off, and I get to do a crapton of soldering. I'm looking forward to it.

I should have been studying mechanics, but NOOO, I spent 1 hour writing this post. Dang, took much longer than expected.

Ah, OK. I'll put a reminder for myself as well.

Except I once got a warning for the mods for giving critique on the HD650 in the HD650 appreciation thread.

While it isn't exactly accurate, it is a word deeply engrained in people. For example, some of my impressions I have had to call Reviews or else nobody would be able to find them (they were all longer than what most people call "reviews").

I am disapointed but at the same time since it never was anything at the end, I don't know what it could have been exactly and so I don't go around putting GC on my list.

When did I get pedo panda name?

Isn't it 'chauffeur'? I'm not sure, but that's at least the Dutch spelling. (Dutch has a lot of French words, and in contrary to other languages, does not change the spelling of them, only the grammatical conjugations). It's a very common word in Dutch, by the way. Any driver of a motorized vehicle (except boats and planes) is typically either called a 'bestuurder' or a 'chauffeur', both occurring with more or less equal frequency.

Hmm, lately I haven't really been watching a great deal of SoL, and harem is something I typically dislike as well. But that's mainly because it's executed poorly in 9/10 cases.

I also think that it's creepy about how much we agree.

Yes, I know I am talking out of my ass, but I can't help but feel that way whenever I see any picture of it. It's made all the more worse that her older sister are shown to be behaving rather sexually attracted to their foster father or whatever fantasized weird thing they thought up. It's another anomaly in this stupid hobby for me, kind of like how I can like K-On S1, but nothing ever again after it. I can read, and did read quite a few, of loli doujins, so the fear of seeing Hina in any doujin must not be why I dislike it so much. Maybe it just looks so... over-stylized moe, or something. I don't know, it just seems... wrong. No problem with seeing Yotsuba, or whatshername from Usagi Drop (yay for me forgetting her name, and I claim that I love that manga). No problem seeing and reading anyone their age dealing with tentacles and monsters and other stuff in weird and peculiar ways. But I somehow have this instant gut reaction to hate, dislike, despise Hina.
I won't (maybe) call you a pedopanda again, ever (not promising; it will depend on my Cynicism and Poison meter in me).
Time to sleep and reduce the CnP meter.

That's more or less right. The entire show is resting on the fact that Hina is cute. All the surrounding plot is crap, and the only other point of interest is the relationship between Hina's sister and her foster father, but that's just weird and unrealistic as well. That one fat guy was simply disgusting, and all of the remaining characters were horrible as well.

It's like: "We'll create a crappy anime, but to make people actually watch it we put in a random cute four year-old girl".

But yeah, at $27, I'll just make these my portable IEM's and save the money on real IEM's for the time being as I save up for the LCD 2. 

Oh right, you still have French class. Man, I dropped that subject in 10th grade. Not really my favorite, although I still doubt whether choosing Spanish instead was really a good choice.

I've tried to use it to make Guild Wars farming vids way back, but it just sucked. In the end I got some other random program I can't remember the name of.

Addressing this a bit, while I don't follow the rumor mill and upcoming releases much, I do follow people that I trust their opinion, and I can see where the hype is justified and where it's not. Like Magi and JoJo, the hype before it so far has been properly placed, as they turned out great, if not marvelously awesome. Some, as you said yourself, like Little busters, is misplaced.
Head-fi, on the other hand, seem to not be like this recently. Some are justified, some are misplaced, but usually the larger the hype and follower behind it, the more dissenting any opinion is against the Gestalt Opinion is Wrong.
I really need to stop now, as even I can't make sense to whatever is in my mind that I may or may not type.
Oh and to spur a bit of anime discussion, here's my preliminary season's list:
1)JoJo's by several miles lead
2)Psychopass
3)Shinsekai Yori/ Magi.
Note though I only watch like 7 or something shows only this season, since I'm a picky and cynical bastard.
Good night, and to whoever else going to sleep, don't let the bed-tentacles violate you.

Shinsekai is on hold for me now. Haven't gotten in the mood to watch it since ep 3.
Gotta watch Magi as well. I watched the first ep with the club, and it was awesome.

I also only watch a few anime this season, because I got picky as hell. Even dropped Jormungand, because I didn't really feel like watching it any more. My personal 'Koko is a boss' drive to watch it kinda dropped this season.

There is no question about mispronouncing a French word because it is very consistent.
But who knows, maybe your French teacher is not even speaking proper French (or dumbed it down to American levels) thus your misconception into chauferre.
Yeah he sold them. I told you already when you ordered me to go try them out :<</div>

To foreigners French spelling is a b*tch at first, but it's relatively consistent. Nothing like Dutch or English, where the whole concept of consistency in spelling is almost non-existent.
In Dutch we have at least 4 different pronunciations for each of the vowels 'i', 'e', and 'a'. Some of them overlapping as well. Furthermore we also have the vowels 'ou' and 'au' which sound the same, 'ij' and 'ei' also sound the same, and we also have the vowels 'ie', 'eu', 'ai', 'aai', 'ooi', 'eeu'. And then there is also the fact that we never change spelling of foreign loan words, which causes for even more inconsistency in spelling and pronunciation.

Yeah, Bowei, were you referring to the other M when you said Mechy? Lol.

I wish MAL would let me do decimals, I think it deserves about an 8.5 IMO. But I rated it a 9 because I thought it was pretty good. That will be my first/last jump anime though.

But if you look on my pictures, the RCA part file looks like it already has a nut on it... I'm confused.
Also, are you sure the power connector will be long enough to be secured to a 6mm thick piece of aluminum?

Decimals in MAL? No way dude.
I think 10 gradations between different grades is already more than enough. The line between an 8 and a 9 is pretty vague, but the line between 8 and 8.5 is extremely vague.
Besides, that would be implying that we humans have the ability to rank stuff with really high precision, whereas in reality our impressions of 'good' or 'bad' are both inconsistent and very vague/imprecise.

I personally like a 7-based system best, and I love IB for applying it to.
1/7 5th percentile
6/2 12th percentile
5/3 20th percentile
4 26th percentile
(approximately)

The line between 4 and 5 is very clear, between 7 and 8 is pretty darn vague still.

I personally like the original recordings better than the remasters for some reason. Except for the mono stuff, that is remastered better. (even though the stereo remasters are pretty badly done)

FLAC can contain any bitrate, I think. Or at the very least it can contain 16, 24 and 32 bits.
Not that I think that 24 bit recording make much sense to use for home playback.

I still don't like J-cords though, they're too limiting IMO in which pocket you have to have your music player in...

I love J-cords.

Got it on hold still. I'll hopefully pick it back up over the weekend.

I love this thread but it a little time-consuming (so is watching anime) and I'm trying to run a company, which takes up more time. =P

15 000, seems legit.

Priorities man. Do you honestly think that a little money making thingy is more important that us?

Plus is just sounds soooo nice, using LME49720 as the headphone driver, after trying like 20 combinations.  Now that I'm satisfied with it's sound and fixed it, what do I do now?!  Lol.

What to do now?
Write a review, of course.

Also, I'd suggest giving feedback to MIU-tech. Seems like they can use it. It's a fairly small and new company, and they said the appreciated the feedback given in my own review as well.

So this is the rumored Kiteki I've been hearing about every since I began lurking here 2 years ago.

You haven't met him yet?

Oh boy, the things you have missed.
This forum would definitely be different without Kiteki around.

I just managed lock myself out of my house with my wallet and stuff inside. frown.gif
Gotta wait until my parents get home tonight.......

I had that happen to me as well several times in my life. Luckily there are two relatives in my hometown that also have a key. Both are about 10min by bike from my house, and there is always an unlocked bike under the car port (I wonder, is 'car port' even an English word? It's common in Dutch, and refers to a small area with a roof (but no doors) under which you park your car).

Thank you.
And that's the reason why it's not just semantics. Appreciation here means a lot to various people, and any criticism seems to always be seen as an insult to anyone that likes the product. Any and all anticipation and discussion threads for new and upcoming products that have the word appreciation in its title will always be too emotionally charged.
I really want to like more SoL actually so that I can freaking relax once in a while, but it's just too stupid for me now LOL.
Haven't been in an anime mood all week long, and I just download whatever is coming out (of shows that i watch). Even shinsekai yori, which I've been defending pretty much since ep. 4, is not alluring right now. I don't doubt that if Psychopass were to come out in the next day, it would get a pass from me too, if this un-mood goes on.

@accoun, without context, whatever you posted there is as important as my fart right now. *fart*

Silicon Knights were the developers of f. ex. Too Human, which was very long in development and could be called "console DNF".

Anyway, when they moved the development to current-gen consoles, they licenced Unreal Engine 3, but felt its development wasn't advanced enough and dropped it in favour of an in-house engine.
After finishing the game, they sued Epic for selling them an unfinished product as a finished one (or something like that). Epic counter-sued them for using code from UE 3 in their engine. Turns out they were right and SK are forced to destroy all remaining copies and source code of all games using said code...

Had no idea something like that was going on...

Yea, i don't think I recommended that.
I only went on occasionally back then. Wasnt too into head fi as much as now. And yup, i don't think i heard of you back then. I remember seeing kiteki with something about avatar pics or pictures in general. Of women? Maybe.

This was back when i didnt know head fi had that large of an anime following.

The anime following isn't that large at all. It's just busy because the few members who do partake do so in a very active manner.
