Case of Shinra, Reunion of the Turks Thoughts

Some thoughts about what I've translated so far of Case of Shinra. Spoilers ahead. Considering how much FFVII literature I've translated, I'm starting to think maybe I should also go ahead and translate Makoto Shinkai's 5cm novel as well instead of just having summaries for it but... We'll see. Anyway, thought we were going to get to...


Bandwidth Trouble October 2009

Oooo, bandwidth ran out again this month, one day earlier than last month I think - Probably because of the sudden surge of P3P fans coming over from Livejournal and GameFAQs for translations. Of course, lots of visitors is always a good thing for a site but just wondering how many of them will be returning visitors now that the game is out...


A New Layout for 2010 ::

Welcome to my site's humble new layout! So, how many of you managed to get the references I had during maintenance? For those of you that missed it, the message was... The site is currently going under mass operation. Hopefully it'll be back up before the dark hour ends. Everything went fairly smoothly apart from a few hiccups from the...


DSLR Photography - 55-250mm Telephoto Lens, Hoods and Polariser

Uh oh, I'm starting to buy into Canon's DSLR system which means my wallet will soon be gone. Anyway, thought I'd share a little of the information I've learned as I read more about photography and experiment with more gear. The more experienced photographers amongst you can correct me if I'm wrong about anything ^^; DSLRs have all...


Mid-Autumn Festival 2009

中秋節快樂! 中秋节快乐! Yes, I know it's passed. Wasn't really going to make a post about the annual Mid-Autumn Festival but, then I remembered this shot of some cakes my parents brought back from their trip to London on the day. Cute, eh? Almost £3 (US$5) each... Lots of cream skilfully decorated on top of a slice of roll. Tasted pretty good....


Case of Shinra, Translation Project Resumed

Thought I'd resume the Case of Shinra, the final short story in the FFVII On the Way to a Smile series again now that fellow FFVII fan, Hitoshura over at Thelifestream.net seems to be MIA and a number of people have emailed to ask about my translation of it. I've already updated my main FFVII Novels site with some of the translation but this...


Site Downtime, September 2009

Yay, the site's back after about a day of downtime (right after covering MCF2009 as well!) and it had nothing to do with sharing large files from my hosting space this time. Instead, it looks like the recent boost in traffic had so many people viewing the site this month, the quota got used up faster than expected. Might be time to find some...


Mirror's Edge PC Version Revisited

Picked up the PC version of Mirror's Edge again because I felt like playing it. Maybe because it's something new instead of all the usual shoot-em-ups and RTS games on the PC. I was surprised to find it came with a music CD that contains the theme song "Still Alive" by Lisa Miskovsky because the sites never mentioned anything about it....


Two New Beast Player Erin Novels Published

I bought the original two volumes of the Beast Player Erin novels thinking that was it finished but, looks like the author released another two just last month to round off the story - The Quest Arc and The Final Arc. This suggests we could see a season two of the show since the current 50 episode series is only looking to encompass the first...


5 Centimeters per Second Gets A Reference in TVB's Sakura Memories

I was just watching the Chinese Channel this evening when episode one of a holiday programme about Japan named 樱红醉了 came on. I think the Chinese name "ying hung zeoi liu" is a pun for "The Drunken Hero" but the English name is "Sakura Memories". Anyway, the narrator and actress Niki Chow was suddenly talking about how cherry blossoms...
