A Month Later, Asahiya says No "5 Centimeters per Second" Novel for You

マジかよ!一ヶ月に待ちさせて 小説在庫なしだと!? ヽ(メ `Д´)ノ ムカー!! WTH!? The Asahiya store at Sogo HK takes my reserve money, tells me I can't cancel, makes me wait for a month and then tells me they don't have the 5cm novel any more!? This is ridiculous... They kidding me on or something? Their stores in Japan seems to have stock so I don't see why they can't get...


Super Paper Mario Replacement Arrives with Oversized Box

Despite bug-free copies being low in stock, I managed to get my bugged copy of Super Paper Mario replaced after I sent it away a week ago and it arrived in this big box. Makes you think there would be something else packed in there but, it's just one big box with a large piece of bubble wrapping. Not even a note about the bug but, I guess they...


Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 for Students and Another Look at Piracy

Decided to purchase Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate Edition because I saw a poster at uni offering it for only around 10% of its RRP for students. That means you're only paying £40 instead of the RRP of £500. You need a valid academic e-mail address to be eligible for this offer and is available until April 2008. Once you pay on...


A Month until I get the 5 Centimeters per Second Novel?

I was hoping to get a hold of the 5cm novel a week after its release but unfortunately, my Japanese penpal is away on holiday so that's not going to be possible. I don't plan on paying Amazon US$34 for P&P when the book only costs US$12 so, I decided to ask a friend in HK to try and order it for me at the Asahiya bookstore. Last time I ordered some...


A Scare from the Free Blog Services of Wordpress

Ah, the blog's alive! So, here I was catching up on and preparing my posts for the day. A few moments later, I decide to resume my work only to find this. Yes, a sign saying that my blog had been suspended due to a violation of Wordpress' ToS. Obviously I was not very happy when I saw the sign because ever since moving my blog, a good number of my...


Super Paper Mario Glitch Corrupts Internet Channel?

My Internet Channel was working fine until I came across that glitch in Paper Mario which freezes your Wii. Then it just refused to connect to any websites when I ran it again today (last time I ran it was before I encountered the glitch). Thought it might have been my internet connection acting up again but the other channels such as...


Animegamers Store Writes Back Saying They Are Investigating

Remember my post about the online Animegamers store not replying back? My limited edition of the Getbackers Manga volume 39 was missing the collectors postcards that it was supposed to come with. Well, they've finally sent me a reply a month later which says: We did some digging on this particular title and have only been able to find...


Not Many Good Anti-Spyware Programs Out There, Is There?

Someone passed a laptop to me to have a look at today. Apparently it was running really slow for some reason and even after running several scans over it with different anti-virus software, nothing came up. The owner couldn't figure out what was wrong. So I booted up the Win XP machine and sure enough, everything was crawling. Took a few...


Ordered Mario Strikers Charged for the Wii

I actually have next week's "Trauma Center: SO" pre-ordered too but needed another game to play before then. Finished Zelda: TP a few days after getting my Wii towards the end of June. It was a good 50 hours. If only they would add in an enemy rush mode or something after you complete the game... Then it would be even better. Mario Strikers...
