If you truly loved me you'd send me those Shiki DVDs.




I bought some Christohper Pike books. I was a huge fan as a child and decided to start up a collection on a whim.

Yes, I got them two weeks ahead of their release just for the express purpose of sending them to you. :roll:

Glad you understand, gimme gimme.


Seriously though, Shiki is a very weird anime to me....I couldn't get a grasp of a true "main" character, everyone seemed like side characters.

______________

Went to Wal-Mart before work. Decided to have a Movie/TV weekend marathon with the family before I go back to school. <3

My sister's actually looking forward to Arietty, which is shocking to me considering she hates anime (just because I like it). She thinks it's Disney though, so when it's over and I reveal it to be anime, I'm going to be all :awesome: |:> :P .

Thor? Thor's just awesome. I don't like most comic book stuff, but Thor? GAHHHH. <3

I also love classic television. What can I say? Plus, Lucille Ball is God-tier actress/comedy in my eyes. :nose:

I didnt realize that Arietty was out already. I'll have to go pick it up. I enjoyed when I saw it at the theater.

So I decided to pick up some Cool EL Wire and test it out myself as a ceiling light to see how it'd look as possible decorations for the VAT, at to test the sound activated drivers they provide. In the end, the sound driver sucks at picking up subtle differences in sound, which I think is due to the fact it picks up it's own hum. Not sure if a defect or not, still need to call them on that. But the upshot is I have this really cool looking blue glow on my ceiling, but it's sadly half the length it needs to go across the whole ceiling. Either way, I think I like the way it looks and will probably look into picking up more soon to complete the look.

It reminds me of the days when I had a blacklight in my room all the time, but sadly the blacklight hurts Ruu's eyes so I don't do that anymore.

@ngsilver: Feed audio signal from PC to microcontroller, then use PWM outputs from microcontroller to pulse all the drivers instead of using the mics? :O

:ying:

I have recently acquired:

-Replacement electrolytic capacitors for an old motherboard I want to try and revive and use for a server
-Arctic silver thermal compound for the processor on said motherboard
-If board won't work, expect to buy a new mobo/processor/ram for the server (probably cheap dual core Celeron chip)

-A 128gb Samsung SSD to be an upgraded OS drive for my workstation
-A 1tb WD Black drive for storage in said workstation

-Gonna move a bunch of drives around and reformat them so I can install CS5.5 finally
-Gonna map my 3dsmax textures folder to a network drive T:, so no matter where the .max file is moved, it will always refer to T:, then I can have a shared folder on the server for textures that will be mapped to T:, which means once I have render boxes, they will all be able to just pull the textures from the server, and I will have a script that will backup any new textures from workstation to shared server folder.

Giant Nerd Squee. :awesome:

Actually, I've thought about doing that. Though for my current application at home it isn't really needed since I'll only need an on/off switch, but for the con sure. Though right now I'm more concerned with the high pitch tone the driver seems to make as while I can generally tune it out, other people I live with can't. Of course, I might just get lazy and use the stand alone sound activated device they have which already has all of that imbedded, because :bear:

Had to pick up a new power supply. Old one was flaking out because I was pushing the limits of its capacity with the new video card. Decent deal on it ($65 shipped) - hope everything goes smoothly. :crosses fingers:

My 17" LCD for many years had died on me a while back. It's been rough living off one monitor but I decided to finally jump and buy another 24" Asus VW246H. I've sorta stopped editing because of it so I'm hoping this will get me back into it again and I can finally finish the video i've been sitting on for months.

I also bought an external flash for my DSLR. Nothing fancy.
