Reading….

Reading….




March 20th, 2009     

Here’s what I’ve been reading lately. First, the set of short stories written by 3 different authors. I think my favorite was the second story. I wish that author wrote other FFXI stories. Right now I’m working on a series by Hasegawa Miyabi called “Message from the Past”. At least, that’s the English cover included [...]

Ah, true love. *sighs* Yesterday I saw one of my LS mates shouting about this Assault. As I am now a Sergeant and happened to have a ticket lying around, I went with him and 4 other people to go encourage some Apkallu to make some babies. While many of them were complaining that this [...]

March 11th, 2009     

I realized I haven’t really been reading enough lately. That is to say, reading things outside of magazines or manga. So I picked up a FFXI book containing 3 short stories. One of them involved some characters that appear in a new manga series for Comic-Vanatsuu so it was neat to read about them. The [...]

Why the Auto-Translator Fails

Why the Auto-Translator Fails




February 25th, 2009     

It’s been awhile since I’ve written anything remotely “article”-like on my blog. Right now I’m waiting for a couple new magazines to come out so I’m in-between projects.
