New messenger bag. The one I bought way back in 2004 finally developed a hole, so I bought a black canvas Rothco bag (along with a purse-sized ammo bag, because I obviously can't read measurements).

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows

Watching the two parts back to back was pretty awesome, especially on a 32' screen.

Indeed. I'm really hoping it takes off over here and can get some mainstream appeal. The U.S hasn't had a huge mainstream show since what, Bebop maybe a few of the shonen jump shows and a few more.

I think Black Lagoon could have had a shot, if it weren't for Geneon's departure, but Bebop is probably the latest example.

Best. Thread. Ever.

Some time earlier this year, I was struck by a most interesting realization. I have scripted and coded IRC AI bots for some years. When I say AI, I obviously mean something that imitates humans rather than anything sentient. Additionally, the vast majority of things I have put together are nothing more than intricate trolling tools (such as bots designed to imitate the behaviors of schizophrenics and rant 24/7 for days on end). My realization was that, however basic these things may be, that if I could connect them to hardware I would have real robots. My problems are as follows: I don't have the money for motors or other parts, nor do I have the level of programming knowledge to connect a program to hardware, nor do I have the motivation to sit down for a few hours and learn (I'm a lazy bum).

Two friends of mine (Zola from PCF and her roommate) have both the technical know how and the dedication to produce at least prototype androids, but they do not presently hold the resources for any major projects. I followed their work obsessively as a child and as a teenager, and as an adult ultimately drew the conclusion that the world has made a terrible mistake in neglecting such geniuses and that it's a lack of investment, not technical problems, which has prevented the emergence of androids.

As for you, Yuko-san, I wish you well with this project. I would like to make a recommendation: have the robot record everything it sees, everything it hears, everything it does. I do not believe it will take a century for us to learn how the human brain works and recreate it. Your creation, if it were to be upgraded to sentience in the future, would thus have an extensive memory on which to base its identity.

A big o doujin. Something about deadpan android. It looked funny and was 30% off, so I figured why not.

Also got my friend a mini dice set, which was on sale at the game store.

On this subject my little sister very literally tried to bootleg a video, and had no idea it was illegal. So she came to ask me if I trusted the site she tried to get it from. Told her no and got to the laptop she tried that on. Luckily it redirected her to a site to download software and that's where it ended.... So my sister is tech illiterate and almost did something illegal. Gee I feel great.

But as to what I've been watching, Bleach and Naruto mainly.
