Too slow… Homework is the worst thing. I shoulda been a musician.
(Random thought: Batman > Superman.)
Yeah, two chapters in one month! Isn’t that nice? Merry late Christmas. Or early, depending on how you look at it.
Oh, also. Have you been getting some dumb popup that says “Free Web Hosting?” Try to find an add-on for your browser that selectively blocks scripts. For example NoScript for Firefox. Block the script from hosting24.com. I think the site40 scripts are okay. I need them for uploading. You might for the reader.
(Random thought: Dr. McNinja. It’s better than Naruto (yes, it is). Read it.)
The issues have been fixed.
Minerva rescued. Marth prepares to storm Gra fortress and find General Jiol…
Erg… sorry for the wait, guys. This is even longer than normal, I know.
(Random thought: I fail.)
[Chapter has been fixed!]
Not much to say here. Done with Volume 9, though, that’s something.
(Random thought: Arrow is a pretty cool show. (Based on the DC comics hero “Green Arrow.” One of my favorite Justice League members.))
Hey, it’s Foxie writing for once. With regards to the translation progress, my mother is officially off the hook! After giving her a massive box of chocolates (which may as well have been a big birthday present…), it essentially means that one aspect of my job is done.
Whilst that’s lovely and all, I also have a present for those that may benefit from it. I have uploaded the earlier files (you know, vols 3-6?) onto SkyDrive. Which means that you should be able to read it online without downloading!
You might have to use F11 to get a decent size (not recommended if you’re at school though…!) or otherwise open up the whole file. When reading online, just make sure that the files are sorted by name and not by date created, as otherwise it won’t necessarily be in order. In any case, fiddle around with it and, if you want to, the option of downloading is still there.
We’ve just finished with Map 23, which is half way through Volume 5. Updates are pretty much monthly, so logically speaking it should be finished July 2013 (!!)
Hope you like.
Huhhh… Exams… Such is the life of an engineer… Fortunately, wave one is finished. Unfortunately, reinforcements will be arriving soon.
(Random thought: Wow, this site actually gets spam posts! I never show them, of course, but still…)
Here it is! After much technical difficulties, we’re back online. In this chapter, Minerva is sent to parley with General Jiol, commander of Gra’s army. Little does she know that what’s waiting for her isn’t exactly as they planned.
Goodness, that ordeal was painful. I hope to get back at least close to where I was, but I lost a lot of stuff from it. Geeze.
(Random thought: Contrary to popular belief portrayed in many games, bullets are affected by wind, gravity, the object they hit, etc.. They can also kill people, so a gun should never ever be pointed at any living being without intent to kill. Why do I bring this up? I explain in this chapter’s notes.)
Ah… I have a GUI. Feels better. It’s read-only, but a GUI nonetheless.
Anyway… excuse the technical terms:
I wanted Arch Linux so I wouldn’t have to go to ECE 190 labs, which require some kind of Linux/Unix type OS. So I followed the directions on the Arch Wiki until I got to the bootloader part. I couldn’t figure it out the shell, and having no wi-fi in my apartment really doesn’t help things along. No wi-fi, no iPod Google. However, wi-fi makes the network setup more difficult. But then I couldn’t figure out how to boot my Windows 7. So I got desperate and started deleting my Linux partitions. Unfortunately, I must have erased the Windows 7 OS partition and hit “write” as well. So now I’m stuck without any sort of working OS (and all my files ever on the hard drive). Next, I go to my TA office hours to sort things out. Which actually helped, but I didn’t have the wi-fi drivers, and I’m not allowed to use the Ethernet cables in the lab. So finally, after many hours of extreme frustration, I went home and reinstalled the bootloader. Miraculously, it worked! I booted into Arch and got everything running. Next was to install the Elinks browser, which was when I made the post. I could finally use the Internet! But that’s not so great because I still don’t have a GUI. So I got GNOME 3.4. Unfortunately, I’m still stuck having to use a Read-only copy of GNOME on my USB drive. Meaning I can only do browser-based stuff like send emails and post things. I’ll have to figure the rest out tomorrow. I’m so exhausted…
Long story short: I wiped my Windows 7 and everything (yes, files, iTunes, manga files (don’t worry, I got it), passwords, etc.) on accident. Now I’m trying to rebuild using Arch Linux. But I still need to get my GUI set up. I’m super tired, and I feel like I’m dying and my soul is being ripped out.
(Random thought: ”Confound those Dover boys! Oh, how I hate them! I hate Tom! I hate Dick! And I hate Larry! They drive me to drink!”)
Well, I accidentally erased my Windows 7 OS from my computer… Guess what? All my files are gone!
Yeah… Not smart. So now I’m using this totally weird browser called elinks to write this post. Believe me, it was hard enough to log in. So, please excuse me while I obtain a GUI. Hopefully I can get GNOME up and running soon.
*sigh* I’m in so much trouble. On the other hand, I actually have an OS now, so there is that. Wish me luck!
