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...

Graphics tablet ended at 72 Euros. Nice :D
I told everyone who asked (and there were a few questions on that subject) that of course I can't guarantee that it'll really work since I don't have a functional pen to test it with. However, judging from the eraser, which is still recognized, I doubt it's the tablet that's broken.
So, clear consciousness here :P

The graphics card and two Blu-ray discs ("Surf's Up" and "The Pursuit of Happyness" - They came free with the player and we really don't care about them) I sold for [ profile] yamasagi also finished at reasonable prices. Neat :D

Currently trying to force the NAS (A QNAP TS20-something which is handling all our Bittorrent downloads) to cooperate even through the semi-broken WLAN connection. Nrrrrgggghhhhh ~_~

Be careful with the "Del" key, people.
I just erased about 4,2 GB of Daily Show and Colbert Report. Gotta re-download all of that now. EPIC FAIL =_=

Put my graphics tablet with the non-workig pen up on eBay. It's already at 15.50 Euros and has about a million people watching.
I explained in the description that whoever wins the auction will have to get a supplementary pen before they can use it. And yet, everyone seems to be leaping at it like Jiro and Tenchi at our freshly roasted chicken ;)
Whatev. Who cares, I just hope they know what they do. And even if they don't, it's not like I'm hiding anything from them or trying to rip them off. So, not my fault. Also, it's not like I can't use the money ^^

Does anyone want a Wacom Bamboo Fun Medium graphics tablet without a pen?
It seems like most tech stuff just isn't made for regular usage =_=

Played around a bit with the LoliMaker (anime character generator program).
This is what came out of it:

Pretty considering it's supposed to be me ^_^;;;

There's a more or less translated version of the application avaiable for download on RS.
Where the hell have I been?
Some time on Thursday evening, while [ 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.

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

Happy belated Birthday, [ profile] silicondreams!!!
... again T_T [/really bad consciousness]
So, Phil Jupitus was the first person to use "LOL" on Qi.
It took nearly four and a half seasons, but as you can imagine, the audience went absolutely crazy.
Also, Stephen, the uber geek answered "OMG" <3
*dies very happily indeed*

Decided to adopt some dragon eggs, too.
Click on the eggs to help them hatch ^_^

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

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

Our internet connection is supposed to be upgraded tomorrow (or, in fact, today).
So, if I don't show up for a day or two, that's probably why ^_^;;;

Also, it seems like our Blu-ray player (the standalone one, not the PS3) forgets all its settings after each firmware update. Um... epic fail? =_=

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. [ 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 ^^

I won a Konata ^___^
If you ask me, everyone should have their own Konata *lol*

Anyway XD
New hardware a.k.a. Xmas pressies (apart from the last one)!

External DVD writer (Pretty and fast as hell!)

DVB-T stick (... which I haven't gotten around tor eally testing that much yet XD)

Additional handset (... because the "big phone" is two rooms away and usually, the answering machine picks up before me ^_^;;;


I found a better quality version of "Cosmos dream"! Yes! Yes! Yesss!!!

God, so beautiful... Also, it's verifiably the first Japanese song I ever heard. Back then, I think I was still in kindergarten. I thought I'd forgotten how it went, but when I played it again, it all came back immediately... *chokes*
Whaaaat, it's over already? Awww, what a pity. I really liked finding positive thigns to post each day and reading about other people's happy happenings =)
Anyway. Today's:

- Finding the manual and software for my soon-to-be new camera on my desk.

- Buying and eating tons of yummy sushi.

- Bombarding Kai with Japanese Christmas songs ^^

Alright, many happy things for today.

- Buying stuff for our Xmas Eve fondue (OM NOM NOM) :D~~~~

- Got a new, cute and warm black quilted winter coat ^_^

- Plans for tomorrow: Going to Little Japan (the Japanese quarter of Düsseldorf) to buy sushi and sweets, then filling up our supplies of Ben & Jerry's on the way home. Whee~!

- [ profile] yamasagi just ordered a new camera for himself (an Canon EOS 450D if I'm not mistaken), which means I'll get his old one once the new specimen arrives. The old one is a Kodak Z7590, BTW. An awesome, almost semi-professional device, and certainly tons better than my current C813.

Finally, a test I found on some message board, and I don't even know who the character is that I ended up getting *lol*

Final Fantasy Character Test
Which Final Fantasy Character Are You?
Final Fantasy VII
- Finding out that Kai's Xmas presents took less than a day to arrive in Munich. Wow! He even promised me not to open 'em before the 24th <3

- Testing and collecting tons of freeware for my Z22.
This is for all you Vista haters - a nice dialog box I got last week:

Is my internet connection being an iudiot or is anyone else's yWriter too stupid to update itself?
When I open the "Check for new version" dialogue and let it download the new installation exe, it does so, but then says "Downloaded file is incomplete - Please retry".
After trying half a dozen times, always getting the same message, I gave up, grabbed the file from the website and ran the setup manually. Geez :|

Wow, the Ashens DVD is available now! It even comes with a free lanyard (OMG bad insider joke FTW XDDD)! And it's only 12.50€! I hope I'll be able to grab one next month *prays*
(And I'm SO getting it signed ^___^)

ETA: Final NaNo wordcount for November 8:

13484 / 50000 words. 27% done!

Wow, I'm not even behind O_O I actually managed to do 931 words, which isn't too bad, seeing how I typed most of them using my middle instead of my index finger. I had a number of good ideas last night, so I'll go all out again tomorrow!

Now both my laptops have the "CPU fan runs at maximum speed constantly" syndrome. Hoo-fuckin'-ray.
Yeah, Hikaru's got it since his last reboot. Ugh -_-
My best guess is that the last system update somehow messed up the controls since that's the only thing that's been changed for several days.
I'm not sure if I can do aynthing about this, so let's hope it doesn't stay this way...

ETA: A simple and harmless hardware reset did the trick, which means that most likely, it was just some manual lockup and not a software problem. Phew...
Holy crap, a fake iPhone. Also, the review's a whopping 14 minutes this time. Wow :D

Awww, baby Godmonster ^^

Damn, I love this guy :x
This one's of course going into my iTunes folder right away <3
