I have my Lamy safari for writing, a Trendnet 8 port switch for networking (since we can't have our own wireless routers) and all sorts of stuff that I'm too lazy to post about.

I'll take pics once I get it set up of course though!

My mansion does as well biggrin.gif

 

This picture was taken as a sneak peek shot by our RA

 

 

No idea what's 'behind' the camera or photo though. 

 

Nice!

 

I am not brining silver ware as most of my time will NOT be cooking for myself(remember last time?). I have a meal plan.

 

We can bring our own wireless routers or use their wifi. 

No, I mean I have my OWN kitchen. Like, all to myself.

I'm probably going to try and be healthy and cheap and cook all of my own meals when time permits, so I spent a little bit on some kitchen utencils, hehe.

Lame, we can't because they're afraid if we set up wireless networks, they would mess with the network they set up... rolleyes.gif

Coca Cola Black was the best coffee-ish carbonated drink I had.

Why did they stop making it?!

I think they still sell it in Hawaii....or was it Vancouver Canada? I saw it somewhere and I wanted to try it.

Nothing beats Fritz Cola (only available in Germany ^o^) or Afri Cola.
Oh and Dr. Pepper!

Pretty sure it's discontinued in North America. No idea about Hawaii.

Obviously meant the fitears?

Yea they are awesome, I got them after 3 weeks of waiting. Quite a bit quicker than normal waiting time of 4 week +.

post #86936 of 117539

Yeah... if they quoted me 3 or 4 weeks I coulda have gotten em.

I was quoted 2 months.

Ouch... Where did you try to get them from? And when?

Lol.
Zone Of Enders got a HD rerelease some time ago. It was done by High Voltage Software and well, wasn't that great (not Silent Hill HD bad, though) - especially on PS3.
However, ZoE2 was directed by Hideo Kojima and he wasn't pleased with HIS game getting such bad port. So he got Hexadrive to make a patch for it.

Basically it went from a lousy 720p with framerate dips, to 1080p with solid framerate and even antialiasing. Nice.
(the patch is PS3 only)

Quote:
Google does a decent job of translation, but here's a summary of key points:
- used the SPUs to cover for lack of vector units (I don't have any proof, but I still think this was the biggest framerate problem in original port)
- rewrote renderer from scratch
This gave them a 10x speedup compared to pre-patch, so the overhead was put into improving overall visual quality considerably (in both HD and SD resolutions).

More importantly though, I wanted to post this for all the experts that insisted ZOE2 HD framerate was broken because "transparent fillrate/bandwith limitations/PS2 magic".

The new version runs at 2x resolution, at least 4x higher resolution of particles(32x for the HUD elements), adds FSAA, improved post-processing effects AND runs at 2-3x the framerate of original port(and ostensibly, better than PS2 version did). But clearly - PS3 hw can't run PS2 fillrate effects. :P

In Japan. This quote was pretty consistent throughout May to July.
Hadn't tried them all yet in May so didn't want to decide. Then I was somewhere else the rest of May till end June.

No idea. I would expect the prestige school of our area to have it *cough*EL*cough* but not us.

I haven't had the balls to buy a body pillow yet, but I feel like that time is coming soon... and I will display it with pride in my dorm room.

Also, don't pay attention to our Headphoneus Supremus tags since I don't know garbage. I only have one pair of headphones sent to me by another AAMML member. lol. Fake headphoneus supremus!

I haven't and will never have the balls too. 'Haven't had' is already way too many balls for me to handle. 

This.

 

And that.
