    He'd never be interested in that show though . It mostly depends on how entertaining you can find Ririchiyo, and I don't think he's interested enough .

    And no no no sir, I am not M for ore no imouto! How dare you! As soon as I confirmed a negative Kuroneko ending, it was an instant drop and I haven't looked back. It might seriously be the worst anime I have seen any parts of in the last couple years, that had any sort of following that is.

    I lost count on how many times I saw/linked/got linked that to S & M Inu Boku video. And to this day it's still hilarious

    Jeez .... the last two I don't care for (either the angle of view or the glasses idea, but the first three images are jawdroppers .

    Would be a perfect Sasaki ... gah, I wish I could snare someone like this to draw pics of my characters.

    Two interesting feedbacks from "she-who-must-be-obeyed-and-is-cute". She's halfway through Volume One now.

    1) She likes much shorter chapters - she uses them as book marks and tends to read chapter by chapter - my 30 page chapters are "too big a bite". Good advice and not hard to fix.

    2) I'm a story control freak. Heh! I plead guilty here. We had talked about how neither of us liked two or three pages of uncredited dialog but I've gone too far the other way - in her view, nothing left to the imagination. She likes to fill a few of her own blanks in, have to guess motivations, etc. #2 is harder to react to and I think I've gotten better at doing what she's talking about. I may review volume 1 and make minor adjustments towards more minimalism.

    A friend of mine came up with an interesting notion ... two published versions. One written as pg-13 and one written as R or X rated. With electronic distribution that is like cake. I have to stew on that though ... I'd rather just write one version without worrying about audience modesty or demographics. I am shooting for young adults and older after all, not young teens.

    Pretty sure it's a marketing thing. There is no official LoL hardware gear, though there's companies like Razor that sponsor the game.

    The catch is mostly, as you already noticed, in the price. You don't have to compromise quite as much when you can start throwing wads of cash around; things get more limited when you've got less money to play with.

    You're still making huge sacrifices vs. desktop (even mini-itx) when going with any laptop due to the mobile GPU being so much weaker than the desktop parts.

    Basically I still don't really advise buying a gaming laptop. As a friend of mine mentioned, if you really want gaming on the go, get a PS Vita. If you're dead-set on it, just realize that you're going to be getting a lot less for your money and you're going to make a lot of sacrifices. You probably won't be able to run anything new decently at native resolution if you're running 1920x1080, even with the best mobile parts available.

    They just can't hold a candle to even midrange desktop GPUs.

    1'm looking back at Kpau's night with Blar and am trying several ways to make it less explicit while still conveying the information I want to convey. I think the way I described the way-too-drunk moment with B+T+G is about as explicit as I want, meaning trying to get the idea across without being clinical.

    I'm currently tidying up volume 2 for my aunt/mom/andafriend, so I think I'll rework the Kpau moments with that in mind. I think using your reaction as a reader model is useful because it forces me to 'write smarter' with better results.

    yeah, Blar is making a veiled reference to the tsundere archetype, though he's unfamiliar with anime and doesn't know the term. He's knows the *type* or at least that aspect of it. Hank, otoh, knows his personality types - doesn't like the tsundere type and can't believe he's fallen for one.

    I have to admit, the miko gag moment made me laugh out loud when it flashed into my head as I was writing Sasaki's little tour guide speech. Not preplanned at all, heh.

    oblivious and clueless does seem to be a comedy gold mine.

    The Taiga cosplayer does ring my "small compact women" bell. I kind of got the feeling she was Taiga height-accurate and could swap clothes with she-who-is-cute-and-I-must-obey.

    This interests me, though typically for non Ultrabook/Apple machines, the screen is crap.

    Sager/Clevo builds usually have the power in raw specs, but they tend to be built like shit and have the durability of tissue paper. Honestly if I were concerned with mobile gaming, I'd be looking at something along the lines of a Razer Blade or MSI GE40... to get a decently-built laptop that doesn't way six zillion pounds and can get more than twelve minutes on battery.

    "Gaming laptops" of the 15-18" monster range just don't make any sense to me. Those are transportable rigs, not true portables, and you're better off just making a MiniITX LAN party box, which would be much cheaper (read $1000 vs $2500+) and have considerably more power and upgrade headroom than a laptop.

    I used to have a gaming laptop, an MSI GX640, which, for its time, was quite the beast with a Mobility Radeon 5850, but it was $1200 when I bought it, and I could have built a transportable MiniITX for less money and significantly more power. And that was a 15-inch with a 1680x1050 display, so it wasn't quite full HD either. If I had gone for a 17-inch with full HD and the GPU to drive it (i.e. 5870 or GTX 580M) it would have been closer to $1800-2000.

    Right now the only gaming laptops I ever raise my eyebrows up at are the super-portable ones. I get a little excited every time I read about a 13.3" machine that someone stuffed a decent mobile GPU and 1920x1080 display into.
