Zzzzz limbo

July 2nd, 2006 (12:55 am)

current mood: exhausted

While I'm still tweaking fonts on my end, Kokumono ep 11 is otherwise out of my hands for the time being. I was a bit sloppy on the non-integrated text files, and have cleaned things up there a touch as well now. ^^;; One error that had snuck into the compile I'd sent off makes me wonder if I can re-integrate the secondary dialogue back into the primary dialogue file. I couldn't do it with the previous file format, but the current one I'm working with which allows me to play with fonts seems like it might allow me that freedom. If so... it'll make certain things much easier. ^^;; I wonder if it'll allow me to change fonts mid-file...? I'll have to look more into that again later. It'd be nice to cut down on the number of files I'm playing with. I've currently got six for ep 11. Op / ED themes, Dialogue, 2ndary dialogue, note, titles, & disclaimer. Definitely a bit too much. >_<;

Mermaid continues to grow! It has an armhole now! ^___^ I'm really enjoying watching it grow bit by bit. But yeah, definitely want a different yarn than the wool that comes in the kit. I don't know if Eucalan wash will soften it up sufficiently. >_<;;

I tried on "day" sock today but still have several more rounds to go until I reach toe-shaping. *sigh* It's getting there. And the two socks are barely starting to look like they've hit similar territory. Day sock is definitely day while night sock is definitely night. ^^;;

Not sure if I'm going to finish ep 5's corrections yet... ep 6... there's one statement in there that I still don't like between Ryuuki, Shuuei and Kouyuu when they're talking about Seiran not being there after Shuurei's been kidnapped. (That whole bit about pride etc.) It'd been bothering me for a bit, and I've finally changed it but... I'll have to double check it in the morning to make sure I like how it sounds now. Ep 5's problems... I need to come to a decision on it. :/ Otherwise, eien has released the mkv for Saiunkoku (listed on Tokyo Toshokan) but it's >400 MB so I'm hoping l33t-raws will release their version by the time I get up tomorrow. I'm running too low on disk space and am going to have to start ditching either Ouran Host Club files or earlier Kokumono files. However, since I'm playing with subbing... ditching Kokumono seems quite silly. I wonder what's going to be announced as licensed at AX... Should prove interesting.

Anyhow, I need to go to bed. The past week's lack of sleep and extreme heat has made for a dead zombie. And FB should be coming out soon too. >_<;; This week's going to start off busy I see...

^^;; Yeah, I'm figuring Ouran will have to go. *sigh* But, it'll be good to have some space back on the HD. I've been seriously debating either swapping out my HD for a larger one (eek!) or getting an external. The drawback of being on a lappie... >_<;;

moshi moshi

uh...i have been trying to make disk space on my harddrive, it's really small and with all the damn crap i download ...it makes it even worse. I really need to get a better system. But, this will have to do. . .for now.


WOOHOO! great going with the mermaid jacket.

I just have to seam up the baby sweater tonight and do the collar. My needle broke last night watching the damn Portugal vs. England game. I am too lazy and cheap to buy a new one. I know i can finish it with the broken needle. ugh.

^^;; I know the feeling. I sometimes debate going with a desktop system again but... I've taken too much to the laptop lifestyle. ^^;

Wow! You've really been going through that baby sweater! O_O ...I'm almost afraid to ask how you broke your needle but... I sometimes wonder if I mightn't do the same to my sock needles at times too. :P

Almost done DLing... ^o^

in my last report

i broke the needle while watching the portugal vs. england game. I don't know how. THe needle was a size 2, so it is tiny.

I finished the baby sweater. ANd, it will be my last time i work in cotton. I hate it. It just doesn't hold it's place well and the baby sweater looks bigger than it should be. BUt, oh well. next one will be better.

and, i agree...i definitely more accustomed to and adapted to a laptop lifestyle. ^____^

neee shadow did eigetsu have a twin brother that died and took over his body so that now he has a split personality? i remember in the previous episode when he was introduced there's a flash back where he's standing over a grave crying...and than in episode 13 we get to see that other side of him when he gets drunk ^___^;;

Re: Eigetsu

Um... no. I'm not too clear on Eigetsu / Yougetsu, but before there were either, there was only Getsu. This story gets told... starting from 3 stories later, when Shuurei leaves Eigetsu and returns to the capital for New Years duties.

The original scene where Eigetsu was crying... is significant to the story at that time.

Getsu became Eigetsu / Yougetsu when he was ~4 when he made a deal with something/one. Getsu's father went berzerk one day killing his daughter (he'd been aiming for Eigetsu). In the resulting panick, the family killed one another off and Eigetsu was mortally wounded, but he couldn't give up wanting to live.

Something/one heard that internal desire to live, and offered Getsu a deal. Basically he agreed to become Yougetsu's shadow in exchange for being able to continue living. I'd have to go and read things over to figure out more clearly who / what exactly Yougetsu is though. >_<;
