Here you go, Steven…

Sigh. Guess I Missed that 51st Star….

So I’m looking at GPS systems. And I see one by Garmin….

“Detailed maps of North America -With Lifetime updates – Includes preloaded street maps for the lower 49 states, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Bahamas, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Barthelemy, and Jamaica”

I suppose, in a weird way, they could be including Hawaii, but then I have a problem with “North America.” I expect our current president to be ignorant, but a company selling geographic assistance should be a little more thorough with its reviews and editing.

He Killed Negima for This?

Ken Akamatsu is back.

It’s a sequel of sorts.

In other news, Crunchyroll has manga. (I had to use the Mangafox link though; CR wants more money to read their limited manga. I’ll think about it.)

Minecraft, Anyone?

Any interest in my remaining readers (either of them, heh) in joining a small MC survival multiplayer server? Already existing, or new. Currently 1.6.2, mods as described here, but it looks like one of them accidentally deleted horses (I’ve seen none). Player damage is on, but deliberate PvP is not desired and bannable. (If you and a friend want to duel, that’s ok, but no ganking).

The DL packages are a little out of date, so don’t jump the gun. I’m just looking for interest — at this point the server in question is terribly empty (it’s me, I, and myself; Dr. H hasn’t played much, and Master Plan is on another server), but I don’t want to join some server with 1,000 players getting in the way. 10-15 would be great; even 5 would be nice.

Alternate ideas are to restart it as a 1.6.4 server with a new world, but remove some of the mods to make the game more challenging, or restart as a 1.7.2 server. I don’t like that so much because the new code to rationalize adjacent zone climate changes can result in a huge area of sameness.

Map of a part of the current world. .

If I don’t get any interest, I’m probably going to shut this server down at the end of the month, and stick to SSP.

Life, the Universe, and my Health

What’s this? Another post in the same week? Crazy, dude. Next thing you know, I’ll be talking about animé, again.

No major changes to my health, but a big minor one: my voice is starting to come back. According to the specialist (ENT), the right vocal cord is still not working; however, it’s changed position to be closer to the left one. This means I have a nearly normal voice (some hoarseness), albeit with less power and range than I used to have. Also, it stays a little sore (mostly on the right), and pushing it a bit makes things worse, of course. But it’s still far, far better than it was, even if I can’t talk normally (or at length).

Well, That’s What they Meant by Re-boot

Basically they took the starting point from the end of the first season of Infinite Stratos and OVA… and just started writing their own story based around harem hikinks. There’s some very small bits of the original plot up through episode 5. Mostly, it’s just stupid. Episode 5… really stupid. After four episodes of BS, they’re sort of trying to rejoin the threads of the original plot. Seriously, if you don’t have any interest in the picture below the fold, episodes 1-5 aren’t for you. Although Tatenishi (not shown) is pretty cute.

Dear Russian Spammers….

I like this new tactic you’ve had going on for a couple of weeks — actually discussing my posts in understandable English. Your comments have occasionally been perceptive and interesting. However much I’ve enjoyed them, though, they’ll continue to end up in the bit-bucket, even without the links to sites I’m not stupid enough to click through to. Bluntly, any IP from Eurasia (with the exception of those located in areas unfriendly to spammers, crackers, and scammers) will be trashed. If you want to participate in the community, clean up your home first. And your posts.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
