Hiatus

I'm going to take a break. But I'll leave you with a catgirl.

Here are five more pictures of Eris I collected from a fan-art site. They're huge, but I can't bring myself to resize them because they're so clean.

This girl's nom de guerre is Pepperoni and she's third in command of the Anzio team, and commands all the tankettes.

Chooser version 41

Added 55 images from Seikoku no Dragonar and 49 from Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka. There are now 2956 total images.

As always, be sure to force a full reload and/or clear your browser cache in order to get the new version.

Hot spots: Clicking the upper right corner opens a copy of the current image in a new browser window or tab (depending on your browser settings). The lower right corner causes a new image to load immediately. The lower left corner takes you to the main page here. Hovering over the upper left corner brings up a window with a bunch of info, most of which is for me when I'm debugging. Clicking it forces loading of a new image.

Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka

There sure are a lot of guns in this series!

/images/07405.jpg

/images/07406.jpg

Those must be peanut guns, because that girl is in grade school.

I wasn't getting a lot of material out of it, and then episode 8 turned out to be swimsuits.

So I ended up with about 50 candidates.

UPDATE: Won't be using anything from Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru. Honestly, I tried, but after an episode and a half I just couldn't force myself to watch it any more, even without sound and with the subtitles turned off and running at triple speed. It was just too painful.

Collecting again...

I last added something to the top rotation in January, so it's about time again, I think.

/images/07404.jpg

I just got 55 candidates from Seikoku no Dragonar. And I've downloaded 9 episodes of Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka and will go through that next.

A Close Call

I bought my Cobalt Qube in the summer of 2001, to host my personal website. It's been soldiering on ever since, running 24 hours per day except during three moves. Today it stopped working for a while, and when I tried to reboot it, it wouldn't come up.

It was acting like the hard drive had failed. Now after 13 years that wouldn't be particularly surprising but it would still be bad news. So I disconnected it, opened up the case, and gently tapped the drive a few times, then put it back together, reconnected it, and tried powering it up.

And it worked. (Whew!) See, the thing is, it stands between my LAN and the internet. If it's gone, I can't access anything. So it was pretty scary for a while there.

But it's back again, and so am I.

And... we're back!

/images/07342.jpg

Pixy has spent a lot of time over the last couple of days finding pieces of the server and gluing them back together. (Epoxy futures in Australia rose by $2.)

But it's likely he missed a few pieces, so we'll have to put up with glitches until he can get everything else fixed. He's worked hard on this, and much gratitude for it all.

Unfortunately, we lost all image uploads dating back to March some time. Fortunately (for me, anyway) I keep a full archive of every image I've ever uploaded. I just uploaded a recovery zip file which Pixy has unpacked, so all my images are back. For the rest of you, dunno.

Watch watch

/images/07302.jpg

DiGiKerot watches for mandarin orange boxes. Wonderduck watches for rubber duckies. I've been watching for red half-rim glasses, and the occasional sniper girl. These are just quirky things we do, to find excuses to make posts. The idea is that when we encounter our watch target in the course of our every-day anime viewing, we post about them.

Audience participation is not welcome. There's no intention or expectation of being complete or comprehensive. The series is things **I** encountered, not things that other people encountered.

Completists and self-elected co-bloggers were the bane of my existence back in the USS Clueless days, and I still hate it. So there was a guy hanging around here who didn't seem to understand that kibitzing spoiled the fun, and I started deleting the comments he left when he did that. I hoped that he'd get the message from context, but apparently he got mad and stopped participating.

His choice. No one has any obligation to read here. But it is a shame. Most of his comments were enjoyable, when he wasn't trying to be my co-blogger.

UPDATE: He was doing the same thing to Wonderduck, and Wonderduck tried to explain to him why it wasn't welcome, but I guess it didn't get through.
