Bakemonogatari episode 4


Part 2 of ‘this week’s awesomeness’ (okay, it is ‘fri-mon’ releases awesomeness)

In short: jailbait.

Orite, to compensate this boring post (which post of mine isn’t anyway?), here be links to other blogs for this episode.

As random bits, Medaka Box’s story is written by Nisio Isin (someone else did the drawing though), same author as Bakemonogatari. (deja vu? yes, I posted about this  earlier today)

How to improve translation in your subs

Tonight at #darkhold:

[22:55] <edogawaconan> "I for one find that "flashy" karaoke is a good way to for a group to show how skilled it is at it's job, translating. If you want more subtle subtitles, get the dvd. (when it comes out of course) "
[22:55] <edogawaconan> WHUT
[22:55] <edogawaconan>
[22:56] <SN1P3R> lol
[22:56] * demi` is now known as tedio
[22:56] <edogawaconan> your typical anidb user
[22:58] <jfs> YEAH because a good karaoke programmer pulls up the level of the translator!
[22:58] <JEEB> lawls
[22:58] <Plorkyeran> or maybe they think a good karaoke programmer would only work with a good translator
[22:59] <edogawaconan> well
[23:00] <edogawaconan> not as lulz as gg's canaan thread :/
[23:00] <Plorkyeran> that thread is pretty awful
[23:04] <Emess> jfs: didnt you know, if I translate something but you make the karaoke, it will be better than a professional TL
[23:05] <Emess> because it has better karaoke than a localisation DVD
[23:05] <edogawaconan> lol


Yet Another Uneventful Day :I

  • Wrote some scripts – specific use only though so I don’t think I’ll make them public. putcrc (obvious), check (converted to sh from perl), indexer (includes updater + ed2k hash generator), aniDB hash feeder (reads file content for ed2k links and add them to aniDB account).
  • Haven’t finished what I should finish months ago
  • Fansub projects… no progress 🙁
  • aniDB UDP API is infinitely sucks, btw. The only good thing about it is its extensive anime database. The rest sucks. (UDP!?)

Next week! I’m eagerly waiting for next week.


Tips of the day (FreeBSD)

FreeBSD installation:

  • You don’t want to install in full zfs root unless you can access the machine physically (or a way to reboot and operate on console) when needed
  • You don’t want to install in GPT. Unless you only have one disk with GPT structure
  • You CAN use zfs for /usr/local and /usr/home, though

LOL The Scandal

Basically, few days ago I skimmed through this (or actually only read the title and first paragraph since I have no interest in it).

And sometime today or yesterday I skimmed through this. My reaction was just ‘lol’ and just leave it be (as usual I only read the title and maybe few sentences).

And just now I read this.

After reading the first link somehow I switched to another item on Google Reader (was reading the last link in Google Reader), and did search on keyword Minori, saw link in Sankaku Complex, but continued reading the last link instead and saw somewhere in it mentioning SC…

…I went LOLWUT.
