Wollongong is my new school

Wollongong is my new school

Yeah…finally, after waiting for almost one year, today after work I proceeded to SIM to attend the UOW orientation at night. Dinner was a Burger King meal because I thought I would barely make it for the orientation, but a quick look at the time proved me wrong. Anyway, I tried out the Transformers English BK meal…and it sucks. I still prefer the French BK meal, and the Swiss BK meal is too cheesy and mushroomy. Okay, back to the…

The calm before the storm

The calm before the storm

Yup, today’s the first day of a new school semester, and the things that are supposed to happen, happened – kids with long hair, dyed hair, police reports, fire alarm trips, teachers scolding their class for not doing their homework during the holidays, etc. Admist the chaos, thankfully, I had nothing much to do today, so I could get some important work done.

Neon Odex Evangelion: End of Anime Part 2

Neon Odex Evangelion: End of Anime Part 2

Well done, Odex. Today’s Straits Times has written up an article attacking anime downloaders, stating that they have a “perception problem” when it comes to their releases. Being the cheapest in the world? I think legitimate Malaysian and Chinese businesses sell theirs even more cheaper than Odex – besides, the stated $9.90 offer is a “trial”. Strangely the article doesn’t mention anything about fansub translation quality, only about picture quality, and also no mention at all about their massive stockpiles…
