    Thanks, I've got my head stuck in the rewrite of volume two and then tweaking of volume one ... almost have too many tracks going. Fascinatingly, some of the wildest feedback has been from my 80yrs old this week aunt (the eldest sister). I sometimes forget she was a hellraising spunky petite girl who dated race car drivers, drank, and smoked when it was racy to do so

    The ~uguu~ was totally intentional, easter egg for those who know - just an odd noise for the rest. Trope corrosion required that I have Kpau lead her into "debauchery" though.

    I will say adding Sashi and Hank with their little substory gives me more eyeballs to work with, without overwhelming the cast. My aunt is a voracious and picky reader and that was one of her first comments was she liked how I didn't throw the entire cast at her at once. After that came the 'make it racier and where are the drugs?' type of comments. She also had a number of friends in the Texas blues scene that overlapped the racing circuit (drugs, alcohol, stir and serve).

    Wow, hadn't seen the Razer Blade. This might cause me to start rethinking "main rig" a little bit. At this point, I try to view laptops as "throwaway field disposable" and try not to spend too much on them. I'm perfectly happy with this little Lenovo, it runs video, etc. and talks to my data clouds. If I step on it, meh.

    But yeah, nomadic lifestyle demands nomadic computing -- my older son is discovering that. His Lenovo runs most games just fine at moderate settings and he likes that he can sit in his bed/chair/deck/car/etc and call me up when he has an hour or two to kill between clients and we can slay borderland bandits or something.

    Thanks for being persistent in reading. My foreword credits you, syn, and a few others so I guess I'll ask if you want it kept to your online "Neo" nick (0utf0xZer0) or that other name

    That actually looks sweet! I'm hoping NIS picks up Tari Tari as well.

    I think I own that R1 DVD. Yours is from Bandai yeh? TBH I got it from Amazon because it was on sale as a duo with Sola. It's incredibly shitty package and I merely bought it to support it. Though I'm not sure I wanna fork out 100s of dollars on a non-sub Japanese only Bluray box

    What's in the HSI pack btw?

    I was going to ask you if you were going to Anime Expo 2013, but then I remembered you live in Canada.

    So jealous of the people going to meet Okada in person. If I lived in the US I'll probably end up buying the Japanese True Tears Blu-ray Box outright just to get an autograph.

    IdeaPads are junky pieces of junk. The only good thing Lenovo makes are Thinkpads, and even those have suffered mightily under Lenovo's stupidity. I'm sticking with my four-year-old X200 because they nixed the awesome oldschool IBM keyboard from the Thinkpad line, instead replacing it with a chiclet POS.

    Most of the "good" gaming laptops (i.e. Clevo, Sager, etc) are constructed rather poorly, bad build quality, cheap thin plastic... and the internal components are really, really heavy. If you drop one it's probably not going to survive.

    Compare this to a unibody Macbook Pro, which is pretty much built like a tank.

    Mine's a TJ08-E, the Temjin line.

    Single-GPU is almost always better unless you're driving multiple displays. Most games suck at utilizing SLI/CrossFire.

    I don't like gaming laptops, honestly. I think they're a waste, not very useful for any of their intended tasks. They're heavy, fragile, run hot, cost a lot and have virtually no battery life. The only exception are "gaming ultraportables" which I think are actually a really cool idea for messing around when out and about, but they keep the good battery life and portability of a, well, portable computer.

    Not to mention upgrading a laptop GPU is always a crapshoot, since you can't just buy the video card on Amazon...

    For a mini-ITX rig, moving it once per week would probably be okay as long as you're careful and make sure that your video card is really well-secured in the chassis. Get a good SilverStone case and you'll be set--don't bother with cheaper cases, especially if you intend to move it around a lot. SilverStone is pretty much the best on the market and they're all built like tanks (my microATX tower is a SilverStone and it rocks).

    Check the connections on the interior every month or so... make sure the CPU cooler isn't moving around and the graphics card is good and stable, check all your wiring and everything. As long as you're careful, you should be fine.

    I'm really lacking a good recent moe show right now. Life's been a bit shit and I need something to cheer me up. Haven't watched a good one since Tari Tari, if that counts.

    EDIT: Nvm forgot about Minamike S4.

    How often are you planning to move this rig around?
