So, speaking of durian...

D571D2683FC51BAAB489AB6F54D707084BC357BA

Bought at about 2-3 thousand pix - roughly 1/3 the price. Sold at 20 000 pix, at 250%.
Probably could have raised to 300%.
Capitalism, ho!

That must be a really really old hard drive? Did you use an external enclsosure on some old HDD or....was it just some really old model?

It's a WD blue laptop drive manufactured in May 2011 according to the information on the drive. It was in my netbook until October of 2013, when I moved it to an external USB enclosure where it's been storing my music and anime ever since. Good news is that it's not mission critical data, I just have to temporarily stop watching the shows I had on it, but meh no big deal.

 

Thinking I'll probably go grab one from Staples tomorrow and try the good ol' freezer trick to get the drive to spin up again. Will probably also try and get ahold of a SATA port with USB 3 as well so I can pull info off the drive as quickly as possible.

Spent a couple hours doing research. While I want a decent watch, I'm not really that much into watch-fi, so I wanted to keep it as cheap as possible while still getting good quality. I set a budget of about €100.

Probably going to buy the black face Orient Union


Welcome to the wonderful world of watches. Still baffled by how people still stick to "shoving hands into pocket just to see time" > "glance at wrist". Especially during winter, where every second you waste fumbling around is a second too long outside in the cold. Sure there's that argument of looking at notifications on your smartphone, but I find that stupid.

Ah well, the delicious barley tea makes up for it.


What's the texture like for durian? Andrew Zimmern tried it on his Bizarre Foods TV show and he said it was one of the few foods he can't eat. XD

Can't say I know how to describe it really. When you cracked open the spiky shell outside, the fruit inside it is kind of soft. It has a sort of "film" that contains the cream-like "meat" of the fruit. If this "film" is still intact, I'd say it'll feel like poking at breasts.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
chicken breasts.

Otherwise once you put it in your mouth, it's like... custard maybe? Texture wise of course, as taste is a whole new level of bitter, sweet, sour and not salty, some metallic tinge and imminent hangover.

I guess I'll just go watch Cromartie High. Been meaning to for a long time.

Hmm, maybe I have stronger tolerance to that kind of comedy. I don't really know why it works though, kind of like how Non non biyori surprisingly works. But I hate every episode that has the oversize-oppai'd mermaid in it. Useless absurd sexual character.

Oh **** son, I need to get back to this. Only thing worse is that it shows how bad I am at economics. I've been operating at a loss for a few "game end" until I read on how to operate a shop properly.

Impromptu question: worth it to ditch the CD drive on my laptop for an SSD? kind of not so old, with a i7 2670 and nvidia gt635m. maybe I should keep this for the occasional need to be mobile (even though it's 15.6" and kind of heavy to lug around) and just budget for a above average rig...

Yes. No question about it. Unless you really really need that CD drive. Even my freaking three year old netbook improved with a two year old Intel SSD.

Guess I haven't been here for quite a while... Been buzy typing up lecture notes for mini-course on stagecraft I'll be teaching.
No progress on fortissimo EXS since I hit that bad end on new year's eve. (no idea where to start again, no walkthrough)

post #99428 of 149729

Oh dang the winter anime have already started coming out that aint good for me I thought I could start and finish Nichijou, Working!! and Non Non Biyori.

It is $20-$40 for an external CD/DVD Drive.

 

95% of the media today is availble in an online version on the sense that those install disks aren't really needed anymore. BUT, I know CD schiit is still very useful at times

 

I would personally say to do it. SSD's are very nice and move stuff around fast.

 

IT can also serve as something you can potentially use in a new computer or desky

Another go at this

 

Hey Borisu, besides Ever 17, G Senjou, and Muv Luv and Fortissimo.

 

Any other VN's I should check out?

Not sure if this is right, but this came up as the first search on google for a walkthrough: http://forums.nrvnqsr.com/showthread.php/408-Fortissimo-EXA-Akkord-Bsusvier-Discussion-and-Video-Walkthrough

I still need to finish some video games, old anime, current anime, and AVN's!

NOOOOOOOO, seems my 250GB external hard drive just got dead. Seems to be a stuck spindle.

Going to staples to get a hard drive?  They have one on clearance; 4tb for 99.50....YMMV on finding it though

post #99433 of 149729

Oh right, at our current thread post rate. We will hit a thread milestone in about 6-7 days from now. 

 

We are about 550 posts away from hitting 100,000 posts. We are also currently at 1.2million views.

I was gonna go to Staples, but I'm kinda looking for a portable drive, not a desktop drive. I wanna buy a 4TB desky but I wanna get a WD red or black.

So what to look for when I change my CD drive to SSD? Any bracket or thingys I need to get first? Compatibility? etc.
