Moar Updates – The Migration And The Future


Right now I’m moving everything that I use onto the Macbook Pro.  I managed to get Photoshop and CuteFTP on the Macbook so that’s good that’s mainly the programs I will be needing.  I cannot get any screencapture program for the Mac so I can’t do any screenshots on this laptop nor can I get Irfanview to edit the screens.  Therefore, those programs will have to be used on the desktop still, so I guess my desktop still will be of some use until I find some sort of program like Irfanview and Fraps for the Mac.  There was a program that allows screencapture like fraps called Snapz X or something like that but it was not similar so I had no clue how to use it.

I’ll probably try to search for Irfanview for Mac if there is one.

As of tomorrow, Monday September 8th, 2008 the figure for Feena Fam Earthlight should arrive to my doors.  So expect a review of it very soon.  Future reviews that will be happening soon is the newest game from Square-Enix, Sigma Harmonics.  I have ordered the game from Play-Asia and the processing and shipping should begin on Monday and arrive on Friday of the same week so, expect 2 new reviews coming soon.

Hoo-ray Macbook Pro

As of tomorrow, I will be the proud owner of a Macbook Pro.  Why have I decided to get a Macbook Pro?  I’m going to Art Institute for Web Design and they use Macs there so I might as well.  Plus, I do not like to use my desktop for this blog.  Why?  No particular reason, it just that this desktop is more for gaming.  That being said, I will have to migrate everything onto the Macbook Pro so my FTP program, Photoshop, and other useful junk that I have for this site will have to be transfered to the laptop.  So there might be a day or two delay on posts.

As for the Feena Fam Earthlight figure, that problem has been taken care of.  The figure has been shipped as of today, err yesterday.  If EMS is really fast, assuming 1-4 days shipping, I should be able to review it this week if not, latest is Monday September 8th.

Feena Fam Earthlight Figure Review Delayed

Due to some bad packaging at Kidnemo Company, the figure was damaged during packaging.  They cannot find any more of this figure from their various supplier so the figure will no longer be shipped to me.  However, Hobby Search just happened to have the figure so an order has been made and just need to wait for it to ship.  Have to wait another week or so.

Giveaway Issues

I’m not sure if anyone has entered the Disgaea 3 giveaway since we haven’t been receiving any emails.  However, if you did sign up we have not received anything.  This could be because we did say you do not need to enter a message so gmail might have thought it was spam or just crap and doesn’t even bother receiving it.

So from now on, when entering our giveaways please make sure your message is your name and address.  Thanks.  Anyone who signed up, you may resend an entry.

Moar Updates – 5.2.3

Another small update in just a few hours.  There was a 5.2.3 preview in the previous post and it is now up and working.  First off, the preview was just a… let’s say beta.  As you can see it is a bit different from the preview.  The color of the header has changed, and how the image is display info has changed.  After the jump this will all be explained in great detail.

Moar Updates – 5.2.2

Like I mentioned in 5.2.1 post, we will be doing quite a few stuff to the sidebar.  I remembered I had a photoshop concept of a website I wanted to build with the help from my friend, it was suppose to be like this site but more of a image site with the occasional manga/anime/games review thrown in from time to time.  However, that never happened.

Either way, I bring you 5.2.2, it basically has a less dull look to the sidebar.  I’m pretty sure you can notice the difference right now, eh? eh?  I knew it caught your eyes.  I’m not too crazy about Animeblogger’s header color though, couldn’t think of any other color that looks cool so I just chose pink lol.  5.2.3 will be released soon, after the jump you will see a poll for this post, the changes in 5.2.2, and a preview of 5.2.3.

Here is a list of what was changed during this little update: Continue reading Moar Updates – 5.2.2

Moar Updates – 5.2.1

This update was for the sidebar especially.  It’s nothing major, it’s just a minor update and a few fixes.  As you can see now we have added a “Latest Figure” content to the sidebar.  I added this for the readers’ convenience to know if any new figure has been added to the Upcoming Figures page of the blog.  It also made the sidebar look a lot more pretty with the help of the visual aid of the figure.  With the sidebar not being used completely and pretty much empty, in the future there might be other things added to it.  Since we use a drop down menu to categorize our pages and posts, it gives us more room in the sidebar to add things.  Before this, we actually would have a sidebar packed with text and it would drag down the blogs length and you would have to scroll down great lengths just to get to what you want.

Well anyway, here is a list of what was changed during this little update:

v5.2.1 – Minor Update/hotfix

+ Latest Figure has been added to the sidebar for readers to know if any new figures has been added via sidebar
/ Fixed several issues with the sidebar look
/ Fixed Polls having weird listed look for the Title of the poll
/ Fixed where the sidebar borders are, they are now further apart from each content so now it looks like separators
* Unable to fix Meta and Poll of the Day borders, currently working on it
* Future “Latest” or “Recent” may be added to the sidebar for readers’ convenience
