Damn

I can't write another tweet for the next god-knows-how-many hours and just had to delete about 150 SPAM tweets manually.
You're probably wondering what happened.
I was working to set up a new German blog and tried importing entries from my old blog. What I didn't realize was that the WordPress Tweeter was not only installed and running but also had my new login and password. So, it tweeted every single post that was imported, resulting in an almighty stream of useless SPAM tweets.
I only noticed when [profile] rdyfrde asked what the hell this was supposed to be and of course, I nearly died of shock and scrambled to rectify this.
But this also explained why importing stopped after about 150 entries. I had simply reached my daily limit of Twitter status updates and apparently, if tweeting the stuff doesn't work, the WordPress importer simply stops.
What a mess ._.
However, this also led tome discovering WordPress Suicide, a neat little plugin to wipe all your entries, comments and categorizes, leaving an empty but working WordPress installation.

Weird crush day?

Crazy stuff up ahead, read at your own risk (Do I have th keep writing this in EVER ENTRY? XD) )

PS: On a semi-related note, I was shocked to see how many haters La Carmina has around the intarwebs. Sure, whenever anyone does anything that gets some attention, there's at least some people who'll start bitching the heck out of them. Sure, I'm bloody jealous of her job and the fact that she got to film with Andrew *cough* but I still wouldn't HATE her for it. She's doing good stuff, and if people criticize her for having plagiarized some of the stuff she's put on her blog, they should look at themselves first. I mean, I'm quite convinced that there are only a few people who have NEVER taken a picture or a video without asking the creator for permission. Also, if people think that the things La Carmina writes about Japanese culture are wrong, why don't they tell her and instead bitch behind her back? Oh, right, they're envious lowlifes without even a shred of character or dignity who probably can't even spell. I forgot :P

*facepalm*

Gotta recount this since it's way too stupid to pass up. It's probably boring for anyone else but me so just skip it ;)
I was searching for a WinAmp input plugin that can read .tak files. I have an album in that format and since dbpoweramp can't decode .tak, I wanted to use WinAmp's disk writer output plugin to extract the audio data to .wav so I can split the CD using the .cue file and then convert the single tracks to .mp3.
Found TAK 1.0.1 which seems to be a more or less official codec pack including the WinAmp plugin I was searching for. However, 1.0.1 seems to be outdated so when I clicked on the download link, I was sent to 1.0.2 instead. From there, I jumped to 1.0.3
This actually went on and on and on until I arrvied at 1.1.1 which seems to be the most recent one.
Oh. My. God.

This and that

According to Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Beta, both Rick and Hikaru can run the upcoming new version without a problem. Well, after Vista, I doubt they could come with a OS that has even higher systemr equirements *lol*

But I kinda like the icon, it's cute:



Also, I found thi hilarious GIF on some image board or others:

HowStuffWorks.com has a category of neat quizzes. Needless to say, I had a lot of fun with the ones about computers.
Two screenshots because I thought they were funny and interesting:



Doctor Who fans are EVERYWHERE ;)



Educated guesses *lol* I couldn't have said it any better. Or, as [profile] yamasagi famously put it while talking about a camera that had 3 mega pixels which it pseudo-increased to 12:
"Three of four pixels are COMPLETELY MADE UP" *rofl*


My old display was sold for 61€ (about $82) which is more than even my most optimistic expectations. Wow :D
So, there might be another trip South happening in the not-too-distant future. Also... Nah, not gonna tell you that yet since I don't wanna jinx it ;)

Finally, a huge thanks to [personal profile] hector_rashbaum for the Deamwidth invite <3 I really wanted to check out this new journaling site, mainly to see what they're doing differently (or maybe better?) than good ol' ElJay. Right now, I'm crossposting to DW via Semagic, which works just as well as it did with JF and IJ. I'll keep you updated on what I think of DW, though I don't think I'll completely switch over any time soon...

Dear people at Google...

... despite what happened yesterday, you don't really seem to learn, do you?





Right now, YouTube search isn't working for me at all. Meh ~_~

Stole these from a German message board. Had a good laugh so I thought you might like them, too.

Dear fellow Twitterers:

Anyone else on there annoyed by the goddamn Follow Firday thing?
I just decided to un-follow anyone whose updates just consist of name lists, no matter how nice they are otherwise.
Sorry, but I just don't want my timeline to get clogged with meaningless messages like that.
To me, Twitter is a tool for communication and fun and I don't want to have it misused as a virtual pissing contest "Tee hee, I gots more followarz than u, suckas" kinda thing.
End of announcement.

Happy General Confusion Day XD

So, today is the day you better not believe anything anyone says about anything *lol* A few of the things I saw on sites I visit regularly:

- The site layout and all the videos on YouTube are upside down O.o (Click "I prefer the old-fashioned layout" next to any video to rectify this ^^)

- Tokyo Toshokan has renamed itself to "Beijing Tushuguan" and switched its site language to Mandarin in order to "acknowledge as well as cater to our Chinese users who serve to be a prominent factor in traffic stats of TokyoTosho."

- The staff at Boxtorrents wants to build "a platform for distributing [...] licensed titles."

XDDD

New toy

Behold, my Dailybooth account :D
Basically, you're supposed to take a pic of you every day so people can see... uh... you getting older (and potentially sillier), I guess *lol* Finally, my crappy webcam can be put to SOME use O.O;;;
So far, it's a pretty fun thing even though I'm still not quite sure about its longevity...

&§(§%&%"(&%&(§)/§$&!!!!!

Where the hell have I been?
Well.
Some time on Thursday evening, while [livejournal.com profile] yamasagi and me were out grocery shopping. our internet collapsed.
As you might have gathered, the damn thing didn't come back until just now.
Apparently, the Telekom people just don't care about your problem if it's not Monday.
No idea how many times we called them and just got a "We're working on it" back. Geez.
However, when I came back from the dentist an hour ago, the router's LEDs flashed "online" as if nothing had happened.
And now that teh net is back, I don't even know where to start catching up.
HALP.

Anyway. I'm back. Hi, everyone. Missed you lots *huggles flist* <3

Also...
Happy belated Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] silicondreams!!!
... again T_T [/really bad consciousness]

VDSL!

The line (50 Mbit down, 10 Mbit up) has been running smoothlessly since about 1 PM!
My laptop's WLAN is still reacting a bit strangely, but anyway. Whee, fast even faster insanely fast internet ;)
The noise margin has increased to 15 dB. Holy shit O.o
No, you don't have to exactly know what that means, but anything below 12 dB is bad. With our old 16 Mbit line, the noise margin was about 5 or 6 dB, and that's probably where all the CRC download errors came from.
From now on, we can also watch TV - and even HDTV - via the net.
Crazy, huh? XD

Mainly relevant for German (speaking) folks, sorry...



Uh... if you ask me, those Asus people really need a lector or two....

I also recently opened a new account at studiVZ. It's here. [livejournal.com profile] mirmingi has already found it <3 I also looked up some other people and sent friend requests. However, since I still might have forgotten someone, just add me if you want ^^
