Tree on House – Please Wait Warmly

January 14th, 2024

If you weren't aware, the Pacific NW had a bit of a weather incident yesterday. What was supposedly going to be a blizzard turned out to be a typhoon with some snow. While power here was restored after half a day, other utilities, ie internet, are still ETA. I rewatched most of GA Art Club and half of Pani Poni Dash to pass the time, and now I miss genuine anime comedies more than ever, but am otherwise unharmed, despite a tree currently leaning on the house. There's at least one Sunday show, maybe two, but writing this on my phone was enough of a pain.

Eushully Attempts Marketing, Fails

June 8th, 2023


A month ago, Eushully began a countdown which ended with… announcement of a sale for their 25th anniversary. And that's absolutely it. Featuring a blanket for… their April Fool's joke. Nothing else at all. Not on their Twitter feed. Not on their website. But on their Youtube channel, unlinked to in either of those places, with their whopping two and a half thousand subscribers, at the end of a montage of their games over the last two decades, that's where they hid the announcement of a new game, which appears to be a fairly generic RPG, though without the godawful interface of most of them. Was this a test to see if anybody was watching it? What are you even doing. Yes, this flabberghasted me enough that I had to say something in its own post.

Technical Difficulties, Please Wait Warmly

April 12th, 2023

Apparently there was a backend update for my site which completely broke the frontend, while leaving the admin area of WordPress untouched. It's reverted and 'fixed' for the moment, but I'll need to investigate and fix it in the near future. It's also a good excuse to do a triage of the site and talk about plans for sunsetting the completely abandoned translation projects forum. Look forward to that sometime in the next week or so.

Out For the Weekend

April 29th, 2022

I'm out of town for the weekend to see some friends and/or visit some wineries for only about the second time since 2020 due to obvious reasons. It's highly unlikely I'll get to Saturday's shows until extremely late Sunday or more likely Monday. Don't burn the place down while I'm gone.

Please Wait Warmly

October 14th, 2021

I'm out of town from basically now until late Sunday for a wedding. Not my own. There are a couple shows I plan on covering in that span (eg Ranking of Kings, Lupin III Pt6), but they'll definitely be a bit delayed from my usual prompt posting, if not pushed back should the internet at the destination be uncooperative. I am not part of the central stuff and I foresee a lot of downtime in a small city where it is supposed to be raining nonstop. Fun.

Baby Steps Towards Basic Functionality

May 6th, 2020

This is exactly the kind of post I need a mini-twitter thing for. Anyway, comment threading is now working again, restoring the basic functionality expected of any blog created past 2006. I think I'm going to try to fix the message board this coming week, but it's… a bit behind its updates, so I can't promise that it won't simply fall apart in the process. If it does, I will replace it with something with links to patches and such, but if there's something you particularly care about squirreled away there, it may be good to make a personal archive. I may post about Harley Quinn on Friday, but I kind of want to try to get completely caught up, which I suspect won't happen in the next couple days. I'm thinking at the moment that I'll probably make a post on that on Fridays for the rest of the season since it's okay enough, and not like there's a ton of other things.
