Still haven’t put up anything new. Too lazy and distracted with another things.
I’m doing well not buying anything these last few days. I still need to get around pre-ordering stuff I mentioned last week.
Overall I should be able to hit savings target safely.
That said, I have motherboard + CPU lined up for purchases. I can really use some faster server. And maybe another pair of 10GbE cards because finding full sized brackets for current cards seems a bit impossible. I got one which I thought could be compatible but it isn’t. The mounting points are very slightly off.
I see some cheap Mellanox cards which should work and less probability of being counterfeits (Intel NICs are prone to this) but I’ll wait until at least next month. Or when I finally accidentally unplugged my loose card(s).
Still RIP. I’m currently at 20% loss on normal index fund and 15% loss on optional pension fund.
Sold two things at 20% loss. Not too bad but nothing exciting either. The total value is pretty low as well. But hey, extra income is always welcome.
I knew this is happening but the slow down sure kinda hurts.
As I’ve always mention, I will need to finish some more eroge before I can continue deciding what to keep.
Thankfully there isn’t much to waste money on. Although I just remembered I haven’t pre-ordered pieces/Canary at all. Whoops. And then the movie blu-rays. I still have enough budget for the blu-rays but at the current rate I need to wait until next month for eroges. It doesn’t help I’m buying quite a lot for next month releases. I hope I’ll still have enough…
Not sure what the occasion is, but its pre-order has started. In two versions (“all” ages and R-18) and three sizes (B0, B1, B2). The price is on high side but at least it’s A&J. There’s no mention of the printer for this one.
Sold three items for 60% loss. Erm. At least the absolute number isn’t too bad.
I did put up some more stuff but there aren’t many left anyway. I probably should lower starting bid a bit sometime this month.
There’s not much this week. And I don’t think there will be much for the rest of this month either. I still need to place order for some anime blu-rays though.
So, overall, I’m doing kind of fine, I guess. Assuming nothing else suddenly comes up.
And finally my funds are at loss. RIP two years worth of investments. It sure didn’t help I picked the worst time to start.
I figured looking at previous month spending might be a good idea. I sometimes do it but I don’t usually write them here.
Anyway, last month started with tapestry from Ryohka and dakimakura by K-Ko from Yometan. Followed by Arthuria Racing tapestry. Afterwards I spent some more money on F/sn museum and related goods. Lastly, ACHGM spending ended with buying more eroge at the end of month. It’s not too bad.
Unfortunately though, on computer side, I bought 10GbE cards and related bits and pieces. In addition, I also got a new phone. Yay. It worked really well. Not for my finance though.
Overall, as I mentioned before I still managed to keep it above the minimum savings target.
Receiving about 40k through auction sure also helped.
From what I gather at least Melonbooks, Tora no ana, and Getchu have plus-tapestry edition. Too bad the one by Tora no ana involves cigarette 😔 And the preview for Getchu tapestry is not available yet. They added one. It’s recycled from one of older BugBug cover which tapestry of its variation already existed.
And here’s another game I got this month. The full title is Oshi no love yori koi no love. I forgot that it’s got simultaneous translated release and apparently it’s well received at steam. The translated title is pretty… interesting. Oh and this packaged edition also contain all the translations so that’s nice. None of the download editions seems to be DRM-free so Steam + Denpasoft patch is probably your best bet for worry free plays. Or just get someone to fetch and rip the package edition from Japan.
I bought this one from Getchu which includes tapestry bonus in addition to the bundled tapestry inside the box. I’m still not sure if I want to keep the tapestries as I didn’t get this game because of the illustrator but because the director was from Tinkle Position as I mentioned before. Also both tapestries are all ages.
The one from Getchu is a landscape tapestry, with thin pipes which means it’ll bend when hanged up. And the material is the usual thin one. The print is mostly fine if not a bit lacking in resolution. Also the analog style drawing is pretty visible. Note that I don’t know if it’s actually analog or even if I’m using the correct term.
As for the bundled tapestry, it’s using nice double suede material. The resolution also seems a bit higher though it could be better. Lastly, the included hanging string is a bit too thick for the included thin pipes, especially for the joint.
Lastly, based on my quick check, the included voice drama is all ages.
Ore no yome event, the 31st one, which is supposed to be held this Saturday, seems like will have a lot of empty seats thanks to COVID-19. Including A.M.R. Not that I’m going in the first place anyway. And as side effect, they’ll start pre-order for the new dakimakura later today.
That’s a bit earlier than I expected so this time I’m waiting until March 1st before placing the order. Maybe.
Sold five items for about 50% loss. Er. Well, the higher valued stuff have mostly been sold out so the remaining items are kind of expected to be sold at loss.
That said, I’ve put up some more tapestries which hopefully can be sold for some profit…?
End of month is closing in and I barely manage to keep my savings target. It’ll probably fall a bit short though. Or maybe not. I’m not sure. Also depends on how the last auction for this month goes. Maybe it’ll be fine.
Meanwhile I still have no idea what to do with Maitetsu pre-orders…
Also on the DRM’d game thingy, they still haven’t make any further announcements.
Oh, and stock market (or just general world economy) sure is taking some pretty hard hits from covid-19.
I need to push limit on what I’m selling and then finishing eroges so I can finally consider whether or not to keep them.
Other selling stuff
Still haven’t done anything else even though I really should. Mainly doujinshi to be sold through Suruga-Ya (of course).
And then there’s my older phone as well though I’m not sure if I even should sell or just dispose of them right away due to safety reasons.
It’s almost end of February and I still haven’t pre-ordered Hello World and Weathering BDs. I can’t quite do it this month anymore as I don’t have enough remaining budget.
And the reason I’m running low of available budget is I’m buying a phone. An old phone. I sure hope it works. It’s way cheaper than buying new but it’s also pretty old. It should work fine based on the seller’s reputation. I’ll tell more once I figure out how it ends.
In addition to that, I ended up buying another pair of 10GbE card.
Thanks to those two craps above, even though I didn’t waste that much on dakimakura and tapestries and eroges, I’m currently on danger of going below my minimum savings target. I guess going to Ore no yome at the end of this month is out of question.
Next month seems even more questionable.
Or maybe this month. Depends on how the DRM-infested company end up this time. The final decision will probably be before end of this month. Just like last time, this crap is taking a bit too much thinking time 😐 Maybe I should just get over with it already and forget/ignore the company altogether.
