The japanese accent,they tend to finish off english words with something close to a "u" sound.

That's why you also have wife--->wifu--->waifu

Or if you combine that with the japanese having a hard time saying "r" and "l" differently you get:

rule--->rulu--->ruru

Guys, anyone , know any programs that allow u to annotate a pictures, and have an autohide feature? SO the notes/comments will be hidden until you open up/ move your mouse over (something like this http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/...ossover-eating ,NSFW ad btw).

Basically i want to put comments/annotations on image/png files.A scanned page of a book for example. However, with permanent annotations, I can't write a lot because there is not enough blank space. And draw all of the arrows and stuffs are quite a pain.

Well, the feature you linked to seems to be javascript (noScript blocks it), not part of the picture.

I understand that, but i means is there a program that provide similar features offline?

Window Imaging comes really close for me, but the comments/ annotation is not automatically hidden when not clicking or move mouse on it. Microsoft Words "adding comments" features are also useful, but a) i have to retype the whole things and b) the comment boxes are really distracted

Default image formats don't support annotations.

What's about if it's changed into a different format, something similar to Word or TIFF image?

If I send you a lookatme.xyz would open it? Browsers can't open it. Default image viewers can't open it.

You might as well create a pdf.

It's for my own use through so don't need to send it to anyone (as long as i have program to open and read it)

As mentioned before, i am using Window Imaging (TIFF file and such). But there was no autohide options, and i have to print the page into A3 size Tiff file, and try to fit really small characters in for every sections,and it looks absolutely a mess and really distracted from the whole page.Can turn the "view annotation" off,but then i can't read my own comments

Can Pdf file do that?

PS: my apologise for being absolute IT noob btw

I think a PDF can, I'm not really sure though. You could simply use an image editor that allows for layers like Photoshop or Gimp.

Well, somehow i didn't think about turning it into pdf file before... Thank there. Fitted more into my purpose than Gimp or Photoshop

Google it around, and there's some tool definitely did just that. Hopefully one of them will be free (unless anyone can recommend one)

No problem. Thank felix for original post.

Question: How often does the AnimeSuki banner change? Does the server-side code iterate through a list of images to be displayed every minute or does it just happen pseudo-randomly? Random curiosity.

I think it change periodically (if you refresh the page of course), so could be every minute or 2. Somewhere around there

Just ran through every program and trial i can get my hand on. And somehow still can't get what i want

They only allow to put a star/marker into the page with an arrow to a box outside. Rather than auto-hide function when you don't have your mouse over. Like danboruu and such

Kinda give up now...

It would help if you could tell us, what you want to do with it.

Do you want it to appear on a website, so other people can view it?
Should they be able to do that just using their browsers, or should they need to download it first?
Or do you want to just have it run locally on a PC?

As I said, Danboruu uses javascript, which is a kind of programming language. That means the "viewer" and the comments are built into that web page. They are not part of the picture. When you open that page, your browser runs the script (like running a program on your PC).
You could possibly find the same program they use on Danboruu and use it yourself, but you would need to have your own webserver and upload the webpages there. You usually can't upload javascript to a website and have it run, like you would with an image. That would be insanely insecure.

Before there was javascript, people would use Flash to make things like this happen online. There were a lot of tools for creating Flash by clicking it together, kind of like Photoshop. You could try to go back and find some of those tools.

Also a mouseover function is actually part of HTML and does not require any script or Flash to use. I remember using it intensively back in 2000something to create horribly bloated websites with gif-effects all over the place.
It had two different pictures in the same place and display one of them, but hiding the other, depending on where your mouse was situated. Or start playing a gif when your mouse was above it. Things like that are possible with HTML.

So if you want to put a bit effort in and read some short tutorials, you could make a webpage that does what Danburoo does, with just HTML.

If you just want to make a file that can do this, which has nothing to do with browsers, one of the many incarnations of MS PowerPoint should be able to do that.

Well maybe i should explain more on my case then. Yes i just want to make a file that can do that, rather than put it up to a browser or share it around

I am still learning Japanese, so was scanning a Japanese book/novel to read when i have spare time. But the grammar and vocabularies are really hard to translate, and take up a hour or more just to read every half of a page.
And since it's really time-consuming, i want to put notes on certain sentences/ lines to notify my future self (what does it means, why did they use it). In case i reread or see the same vocabularies/ grammars in later pages.

What i tried:
- Tiff file with Microsoft Imaging: it's like MS paint, so you have to write the notes on the blank space between each line. But then the Japanese write vertically,means you have really little space to write on top of them
- Pdf file with some managing programs: the system is like an essay references. You can put a star next to a word/ grammar, and it i will have an arrow point to a box outside of the page for you to write down some notes. The main problems are, soon enough the page will be filled with stars and outside-of-the-box notes. Making it really distracted to read
- Microsoft Words: i will have to retype the whole novel, and use either references or comment tools to note. Furthermore, i have to retype the novel in Japanese while the comments are written in English,means i have to constantly change the language tools


So if i can somehow make it like danboruu. It will be really convenient

Is legitimate Vietmanese restaurants supposed to give you your meals raw?

I ordered beef udon and I got a bowl of hot (but not boiling) soup, a slab of blood-red raw beef, a pile of uncooked bean sprouts and some random scattered other raw stuff. Was $13 too. I can probably get that stuff out of a supermarket for $5~6.

I could have just turned the meal into hotpot except there's no hotpot or anything. Just a barely hot bowl of soup that definitely cannot cook through a block of uncut beef.

I may have made myself look like an idiot but it was so strange for me..

No, you just went to a piece of crap restaurant: don't do that again Also, report them to the health inspector for serving raw meat

Just to be clear though - it should look something like the picture on this recipe: http://steamykitchen.com/271-vietnam...-soup-pho.html
The meat can be medium-rare (though usually I see it medium-well). It may have tendon, tripe, blood sausage, and other meaty bits as well as thin-sliced meat. The soup should be hot and fairly spicy.

Well, "beef udon" isn't Vietnamese (though its about like comparing egg rolls and spring rolls, they have some similar ingredients) - first rule of eating, don't order something that isn't of the ethnic claimed by the restaurant. Otherwise why are you there?

Secondly, even if it was properly made I'd say you paid about 3 or 4 dollars too much for it

If you're in most Vietnamese restaurants, you're there to eat Pho (see the link) ... occasionally you might order some of the interesting wrap/rolls or have something with some French influence but usually its some version of Pho (which contains well-cooked varieties of mystery meat, sprouts, basil, hot pepper bits, spice, a wad of thin noodles, and lives or dies by the quality of the broth ) The sprouts, some pepper slices, and basil leaves should be served on the side so you can add to taste and the sprouts should be crunchy fresh.

I can vouch for Vexx's answer- A good pho requires a good broth (as me and my parents can attest to, and boy can my mother cook a damn good pho).

I definitely find it odd that a Vietnamese restaurant would advertise "Rice noodles with beef" as "beef udon" (as udon uses buckwheat noodles). It sounds like you went to a poor restaurant, as the good restaurants do slice the beef thinly (rather than give you an unsliced slab).

Use your chopsticks to bring the rice noodles to the top, over the beef and mix it up a little- the broth should be hot enough to cook the meat well through. Squeeze some lemon (if they even gave you any) into the broth. Add bean sprouts and other garnishes into the bowl.
Perhaps you could try chicken pho next time?

i'm a Vietnamese and yes, they ARE suppose to give you uncooked bean sprouts and some random scattered other raw stuff, it a traditional recipe. but some high class restaurant may want to appeal to foreigner and change them to cooked one

btw, it Vietnamese not Vietmanese

What are the "Full versions" of some music used in Anime openings? Kuusou Mesorogiwi (the first OST of Mirai Nikki) has a full version on Youtube and it sounds like it was made specially for the show itself, so where are these full versions of OSTs published? Because the anime OST itself is only around a minute long. In anime DVDs? Thanks.

Most of the times there are single cds released for the tracks. Sometimes those singles are bundled with a special edition of the dvds.
