While the weather outside is frightful...

55 in WoW...after having an absence of 22 days.
Talk about money wasted, but it was my old computer's fault...thing finally died.
Ha, all of Kenny's friends all hit 60, so he laughed at me.
Then he told me to stop playing.
True, continuing to play is like a hazard waiting to happen but...I have to hit 60.
And hell, my guild's fun enough, even with bastards like Dex.
Ok, bastards like Dex make it worthwhile honestly...
It's a pity we lost a lot of our female influence due to our coarseness...but at least no grudges?
Better then can be said for the OTHER unfortunates who left.
The only one I slightly missed is Aerogoth, the rest are good riddance with a capital G.
Cept the asian fob chiao.
He owes me money.
Warcraft money.
Plus it was hilarious listening to him on Vent.

My first dream is a secret, my second dream is to fly in the sky.

I don't know if it's because I haven't slept and it's 9:46am in the winter in Baltimore, or the absolute beautifulness that is Air, but I am shivering.

Tin can!

Hm, a link so interesting I had to blog about it.
Anyway, this is downright interesting.
I'm already thinking up uses, but basically it's a crazy vortex machine that turns anything dumped into it into micron size powder.
And the guy only had a high school education?
Take THAT, college!

But yeah, still thinking of uses...

So, after narrowing down my problems to NOT the power supply, probably NOT the motherboard, etc. etc etc., I was reduced to fiddling with 999 options in the bios.
None really mattered...what was for sure was somewhere in my case something was shorting any power supply that I used.

This goes on, and then, on a whim, I switch keyboards.
And for some reason, it far.
We'll see how it goes, but I'm cautiously optimistic.

Oh yeah, THIS is sort of funny.
Seems like Japan is the land of unsecured cameras.

Perhaps it was the nice feeling Kanon left me that makes me in awe of Air.
Anyway, Key finally made/started on an anime version of Air, which I only know through whispers and doujin games, such as eternal fighter zero.
Comparison to Kanon?
The girls are almost drawn the same, in that rather weird but cute style.
The guy however is a step UP, cause he looks so fucking cool.
Yuuichi, you're a nice guy, but come on you look dorky =D.
But right away, yeah, I notice a gigantic shift in the mood.
While Kanon started off with that sort of homegrown coziness of a school anime, Air...starts off expansive.
I don't know how to describe it; it's just this wonderful feeling of a journey permeates the episode.
I can sort of figure out the main story from Eternal Fight Zero, most likely the guy, Yukito, is searching from someone he saw or from his dreams, a girl with wings, who I happen to know is named Kanna.
Anyway, the cast of MAIN girls seems more tightly knit, with Misuzu (Testament clone in EFZ =D), Kano (Top tier, she's a magic/RO freak!), and Minagi (She has that little red haired crazy shrimp with her as a stand!) being the main trio.
There's also Misuzu's mother, who I'm really not sure is her real mother and this dark haired sort of mysterious girl (School nurse?)
But I'm really like the show after episode one, I hope it has that free spirited mood through the entire thing.

Edit: That and the fact the fucking opening and ending and production values are bloody awesome...those songs really help the expansive move, and godamn everything looks nicer than nice.

Bloody hell I never read my past posts, especially if they are like 2-3 weeks old.
Anyway, problems with Power supplies...k8n neo seems to require a 24A or higher 12V rail.
Now, before this, I only knew one number about power supplies, and that's wattage.
Turns out wattage is a horrible bullshit measure to go by.
In fact, reading up on power supplies turned into an EE minicourse.
But anyway, I'm going with what the wacky danish certified electrician geek said, and that's an Enermax 460W.
Wish me luck, but it's free two day shipping!
I'll be able to play WoW...SOON.
I hope.
My rogue is probably cold.


Well holy fuck.
Anyway we all knew the computer would die one day, just did it have to be RIGHT after I got home.
Catastrophic failures all over the place, and so I have been basically computerless until...well today.
Still, my measly 350w power supply is lacking, so I can't play WoW just yet.
But damn it's good to be alive.
I'll be going back as soon as I can, hopefully like...Thursday or Wednesday or something.
And then...job hunting time, GLEE.
Oh and for the curious nerds:

Athlon 3200 XP (Not 64 because of WinXPs problems with it)
K8n Neo Platinum
1024MB ram
Reused radeon 9800
