Psyched for Persona 5R. I wonder what Kasumi's role is going to be in the story, hm...

I'm cosplaying as Joker for anime expos this year since he's in Smash Bros now. It'll be interesting to see what other people dress up as this year minus My Hero Academia folks.

Does anyone here go to nerd conventions, or am the only one? XD
I go to at least one every year. Two this year, probably three.
I tend to go to local video game conferences and playtesting gatherings at least once or twice a month, as the video game industry is massive in my city and it's basically free training/food. Same with art workshops and masterclasses. Haven't been to any anime or comics convention in years as I don't really feel like I get a lot out of them and I'm mostly out of touch with what is going on.

----------

Happy post birthday Deadly. :3

Engrish hard, plz excuse...

---------------------

Ordered two Google Home Minis a while back for my parents thanks to a Spotify offer. First one arrived so played with it a bit.

Pretty fun! Though as expected, I don't have much use for it in my small home. My parents will most likely find them a lot more useful.

In the short period I've owned it,

I've learnt that Jon Snow does know something, which is how to say, "You know nothing, Jon Snow!"

I've also learnt that corn seeds can be considered a fruit, a vegetable, and a grain at the same time, and that although strawberries are not actually berries, a banana, a pumpkin, an avocado and a watermelon can in fact all be called berries.

Thank you Google. Spy on me some more!

there's a part of me that likes to have specific names and classifications for things so that a conversation can go beyond "you know the sort of round thing that's not very big" and nobody knows WTH you're talking about. but at the same time, when I read stuff like your quote, I have Louis CK popping up in my head
The scientists could go on TV tomorrow and say, "OK, everybody. from now on, seals and sea lions and walruses, and--you know what?--Penguins, are all seals now,"
And we would all be like, "yeah, all right. Fine. Yes. Whatever, man
^_^

At the very least, I can tell Google where all my valuables are in me home, so people can map out an accurate image of my last private place's layout and my daily routines.

"Hey wiretape, remember that my headphone dongle is in the S5 box and that the SD card adapters are on the bookshelf."

Speaking of which, spent another half an hour looking for my dongle today... What a way to spend my off day...

get used to always having a specific thing in a specific place. maybe 3 or 4 places maximum per object if needed for practical purpose, but always the same places for that object! my keys are in my left front pocket, in the front pocket of my backpack or camera bag, or on my desk on the right with my papers. I never allow myself to drop them somewhere else no matter how tired or busy I am. if I can't handle them, they'll just go back in my trousers' left front pocket. and soon enough it becomes a reflex so even while completely drunk at 3Am, the keys would "magically" end up in my pocket or on my desk out of pure habit. it's almost as important for memory cards and adapters to have few dedicated places. never ever allow yourself to just drop them somewhere else even for a second when being chased by a hundred duck size horses(which is a well documented situation of real life).
I hate almost all established rules and rituals, but before being an introverted anarchist, I'm an extroverted lazy person and this is a literal time/effort saver. you also definitively lose fewer stuff because of how often they end up in the right place "on their own".

That's what I've tried, but with very poor planning. For the last 4 months, my dongle is either between my mobile headphone's plug and the phone, or in the upper left pocket of my coat, which has a zipper.

Well, unfortunately Canada's last snow was over a week ago, so spring finally arrived. No need for the coat, switch pants too often and my shirts don't have pockets. Thus the routine is all messed up! :D The dongle is too small and keeps falling out of my pants too without a zipper closing the pocket.

Not as convenient but leaving it in the box will do.

------------

There are now a few complete teardown videos of the Samsung S5 Neo. Last time I checked over a year ago, there were only some screen replacement guides, so I wasn't sure if the S5 Neo had the usb port on a separate daughter board. Turns out it is and I've found a seller for replacements!

Guess I'll do another phone repair when the part arrives. The screen doesn't seem that expensive should I break it by accident...

If it's fixed, no need for a headphone dongle anymore. :p

-----------

The latency on the Google Home Mini is extremely high. Not going to be using that for boosting my phone or laptop any time soon for videos sadly. This is with both wifi and Bluetooth connections.

I think he knew he wouldn't be as active as before, so it's up to Muinarc to keep the OP updated. (which nobody checks I'm sure =P)

I've got a 1st gen iPad mini that won't accept a charge, that might actually be my first Apple product that's failed.

Ahhh had to order a cordless impact wrench, bloody tire shop must have went ham on the lug nuts and I can't take it off even when standing on a breaker bar. I think I'll only go to Costco now to get tires done since they actually use a torque wrench to install the lug nuts.

Oh no... D:

Kinda want to replace the home button on my iPhone but TouchID might stop working, so I'll keep the current button until it breaks.

The charging port for my S5 arrived. The adhesive should arrive in a few days. I'll be able to perform surgery and hope my phone can charge again.

------------

Redid the wiring of an old flourescent lamp fixture in my home. They should be able to use LEDs now without a ballast. The way the ballast is bolted in makes it impossible to remove with the tools I have so I'll leave it in there for now (why did they do that thou... ;-; ).

Happy that my home is officially mercury free, after much procrastination. I probably should have just gotten one of those plug and play led tubes, but I needed to open the whole thing anyways to check compatibility. Might as well rewire the thing while I was at it.
