Digital Photo Printout Kiosks

Does anyone still prefer hard copies of their photos any more now that everyone's using digital cameras? All of mine are stored on an external hard drive only. Anyway, printed off a number of photos I took with the Canon SX200 to join the Jessops Summer Photography Competition just for fun. It was the first time printing digital photos...


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...


Perseids Meteor Shower 2009

My patience paid off this time round. Last time I tried watching out for the annual Perseids meteor shower it was cloudy and I didn't see a thing but this time, the sky started off clear when I began watching the skies after midnight. At around 3am I saw a very long streak of light across the sky as if it was being slit open with bright light...


Noriko Sakai Arrested in Suspicion of Drugs

Was browsing about the BBC News site randomly to see if I could find anything about the earthquake that Danny Choo posted about because my penpals live there. Then I came across this... Noriko Sakai being arrested for drugs. Pretty surprising when I realised she was the actress from one of my favourite dramas, Hitotsu Yane no Shita...


Nintendo Wii Hardware and Software Mods, Going Region Free

Decided to take the plunge and add a chip to my Wii because there was a number of Japanese only games I wanted to play or just games I wanted to play in their original Kanji context such as Muramasa The Demon Blade. It was also partly because the recent DriveKey chip doesn't require any soldering. Despite saying that however, it's not easy...


Evangelion Rebuild 2.0 Sneaky Cam Edition

Well, this didn't take as long as the last movie to get camcorded... Kind of tempted to watch the whole thing since the DVD release probably won't be available until next year if the first movie is any indication but, that would just lower my anticipation of getting my hands on the actual package so I will refrain ^^; I did have a skim...


Hong Kong TVB Channel Gets a Reference in Canaan

Haven't really been watching or playing much lately but, decided to give "Canaan" a try because of all the good things I've heard about it. Then I spotted the TVB logo on the Air Caina TV in episode one... The scrolling Chinese headline barely made sense to me. If "Engrish" is a term for bad English then what's a term for bad Chinese I...


Shadow of Memories Getting a PSP Port

The PSP ports don't stop coming... Shadow of Memories, yet another a former PS2 game, is going to get a PSP port on October 1st. It appears there will be no new content and the adventure game will just be the same as that released back in 2001. I still have the PC port in English as you can see. Wanted to play some Japanese games at the time but...


Case of Yuffie Translation Completed, Site Revamp and Thoughts

In "Case of Yuffie", Yuffie makes her way back to Wutai after separating with the others and was very excited about the welcoming party she was expecting to receive. However, things don't quite turn out that way as she learns the damage the Lifestream has caused around her home and is warned to keep what she has been involved in a secret...


Bandwidth Troubles, June 2009 Edition

Some of you may have noticed my blog went down again for a couple of hours last night. Looks like that sample HD video I put up for my review of the Canon Powershot SX200 compact camera ate up a fair bit of bandwidth. The file itself was just 60MB but it still ended up eating a total of 7.5GB, ending my quota for June! Fortunately, it was once...
