it's more or else the Japanese equivalence to "AMV" generally those youtube are from the Japanese video site "Nico Nico Douga" and it seems to stand for "music anime doujin" though I am not completely sure of that. Though it cover tends to cover a much wider range of types of "videos" than an AMV, since things such as remix, covers, or song re-creations can be called a "MAD" at times.

Here be a Wikipedia article on it, but it's a little unsourced. Interesting, in any case.

Yes but I figure they would still see you because you visited them before when you were visible. But yeah, the * is there to show you visited while you were invisible.

Depends on the privacy settings, some people can be seen by unregistered members, but very few opt for that.

An odd question that's just been making wonder since I noticed this; is there some reason that so many anime related music CDs are coming out on exactly May 25th, this year? [Madoka OST, A Channel OP, Astarotte OP/ED, Steins;gate ED, Nichijou ED, KamiNomi II ED, and etc]

Like some business reason that makes it a good day to release a song or something?

What happened to the rotating banners of Animesuki ? For a while now I've seen the same one and it doesn't seem to change no matter what i do.

Hmmm, which browser are you using? as on Firefox it seems to change properly and often, though on chrome it seemed to be changing a lot less often; which could be something to do with chrome or me not signing though.

What Does it mean when something has "Character"?
Like I hear it all the time, this guitar has character, this voice has character, that dust pan has character? what does it mean?

I kind of have a jest of what it means, but what is the full meaning of it?

I do have Internet Explorer and I, too don't see much rotation on the banner for now.

I'm using Firefox .. I cleared my cookies recently and I think afterwards it didn't work though it may just be coincidence. The banner is always now the Higurashi one .. to spite me I suppose since I really hate that banner <.<

We just recently learned about screening and stuff for a health lecture and a thought's been stuck in my head.. y'know for mammograms they have that machine where they basically sandwich someone's breasts between those two metal plates right? Well how do you do that if you're a DFC?? @_@ (although conversely, since you have less mammary tissue to begin with you're less likely to have the disease.. wait)

A character is a mixtures of qualities or/and features that distinguishes a person, group, or thing from another. Basically something that stands out.

I have become increasingly interested in the artwork of Zdzislaw Beksinski, and was wondering if anyone knows of similar artists. I enjoy the dark-toned, abstract/surreal genre.

Ultrasonography or BTS then, though I am sure doctors won't recommend that to DFCs (unless the doctor is male with a death wish). In fact, mammograms don't always work for torpedo tits too when the density of the flesh interferes with the X-ray's penetration.

BTS is still the most effective test to date for screening, it is in fact used in almost every medical diagnostic at the hospital (I love the doctor's face everytime I go for a blood test: "Why is your haemoglobin count so high? What did you eat?" ).

The current mammography recommendation is still once every two years after the age of fifty, or every two years after the onset of menopause. Mammography is still the best screening tool according to the American Cancer Society. UTZ isn't very good for fatty tissue.

The rotation was evened out and slowed down over a period of about two months. However, that change settled on its current speed around the beginning of the year, so you shouldn't be seeing any change to the speed now. It should be changing at fairly a consistent rate (not every page refresh though).

If you own a physical copy of a game, is it illegal to download it off net ? I've been told that for example, downloading roms of DS games and such would be legal if you owned those games but wanted to play them on emulator on PC, but does that apply for console and PC games too ?

I'd download them anyway but the reason I ask is because I got banned on a certain forum for '' warez '' when I said on the thread that I dl'ed the game to test it out while my copy of the game is on the mail .. Which it is, it hasn't arrived yet but I've certainly bought it.
