Bus Signs ::

"No Smoking", "No Food or Drink" notices on public transport is pretty common but it seems they've added a new one to the collection here in Scotland... "Turn Your Music Down". I guess they must be getting a lot of complaints about people turning up their music too loud and people do. I guess they must be getting a lot of complaints about...


A Web Exploit That May Let People Know Where You Live ::

Someone from the annual Black Hat Technical Security Conference has discovered an exploit that unveils the MAC address of someone's home router and have thought of a potential way of using it to find out someone's address via a carefully tailored webpage. It's an interesting idea minus the privacy concerns... Every networking...


5 Centimetres Per Second, Cosmonaut Translation Completed

As you'll no doubt already know, a new production blog is up and running for Shinkai's next movie. But while we're waiting for the official site to be up with more details, here's the next part of the novel translated in English, "Cosmonaut" which is told from Kanae's perspective. The water dazzled under the rising sun just above the...


Chemistry - Our Story, Once Again ::

I didn't really like this song which happens to be the theme song for Valkyria Chronicles 2 but somehow it managed to grow on me even though I didn't listen to it repeatedly... Maybe it's because of the slow beat. It only comes on JPOP group, Chemistry's "Regeneration" album though (DFCL-1605-6) and not the official game OST. Lyrics...


A Look at the Uniqlo Official Evangelion 2.0 Movie T-shirts

Went ahead and ordered a few official Uniqlo Evangelion 2.0 t-shirts from London's Uniqlo store which offers a one off, flat rate postage and packaging fee so if you're ordering, it's best if you ordered more than one item. Although most online stores offer free postage, Uniqlo doesn't but arrived the next day after dispatch. I was...


Blog Up and Running Again

Finally my blog is back and running again after almost a whole week of being down. My web host wasn't much help as with my previous host - both blaming bad coding on my site or even more ridiculously, my computer. "Websites run off a server which in this case is located with your company. How can it be my computer?" No response from their...


A New 5 Centimetres Per Second Site, Novel English Translation

I'm sure regular visitors amongst you will know how much of a fan I am of Makoto Shinkai's 5 Centimetres Per Second by now. After looking through how much information I've gathered about the movie, I thought this blog wasn't giving it enough space to organise so I've decided to create a sub-site for it to have all the content accessible in...


FFVII The Maiden Who Travels The Planet Audiobook

Just a quick note to let the FFVII fans among you know that Joseph Purdy and the community of members from Thelifestream.net has finished one of their fan project audiobook recordings, "The Maiden Who Travels The Planet". It's one of the official stories that I translated a number of years ago and takes place after the PS2 RPG but before...


Wasp in the House ::

It's early summer which means it's the time you see plenty of bees and wasps busily buzzing around when you're out and about. Usually I avoid killing insects if I can just let them out the house but over the past day, a single wasp has been flying in and out of the window and hovering around the same spot... Curious to know if it was up to...
