I realize that this might be far too late since I didn’t get to finish watching C – The Money of Soul and Possibility Control (which I shall now call [C] henceforth due to its inconvenient name being too long to type out or to even copy and paste) until after my laptop was finally fixed a while ago. Anyway, back to your regular programming (assuming that I’m not hooked onto my Steam games or catching up on fixing up my photos). [C]‘s synopsis is as follows:
The Japanese government was rescued from the brink of financial collapse by the Sovereign Wealth Fund. For its citizens, however, life has not improved, and unemployment, crime, suicide, and despair are rampant. Kimimaro is a scholarship student whose only dream is to avoid all this and live a stable life as a civil servant. One day, however, he meets a man who offers him the chance to make money fast. From then on Kimimaro is drawn into a mysterious realm known as “The Financial District,” where people engage in supernatural battles for the possibility of money.
Well, it wasn’t really a miracle, but more of brute force and an entire system restore to factory defaults. I won’t bore you with the arduous processes that I undertook to fix my dear laptop, but just know this: I was able to recover all my files, but the Windows 7 64-bit OS still kept refusing to boot up even after I put in a Windows 7 CD to try to repair it. Next, attempt to restore it using a back-up. After multiple failed attempts to restore my laptop to a back-up (even with my friends who were either Computer Science or IT majors helping), I was forced to ask my parents to send me the factory default recovery discs that I was forced to make when I first got this laptop. In hindsight, I really should have brought them with me (I had to wait 3 days for them to arrive)… Anyway, did a complete erase and start over. I decided on this, because this would allow me to make a new fresh start on my laptop, which previously had so many programs and files, and to refine my laptop’s performance.
Unfortunately, this also comes at a time when things start to get real busy for me this one week at my summer academy. I still have yet to even finish most spring series or watch a single episode out of all the new summer anime series, but I will try to come up with posts. Also, due to the massive Steam summer camp sales (curse you for making me spend so much money!), I have accumulated over 50 games for around $80-$90, and so wish dearly to play all those games. I must ask you to be patient with me as I attempt to get back into blogging and balance my time with watching anime, playing my newly acquired games, going to college summer classes, and fixing up & uploading my photos. Also need to catch up on posts from fellow anime-bloggers, as well.
P.S. If you also have a Steam account, add me as a friend if you like! ^_^
Well, this sucks. The main tool of my blog, my laptop, has malfunctioned and now refuses to boot up. I did have some posts written up, but I was going to search for relevant pictures to add to them until yesterday when my laptop suddenly churned out a screen saying that I need to repair my laptop by putting in a Windows 7 and so forth. Attempt made, and failed. Still kept going to that screen. Argh, I was planning to back-up all the pictures and videos accumulated over the past month today, but now my laptop turned against me right before my planned back-up session… If anyone’s interested in helping out or offering suggestions, my laptop is running Windows 7 64-bits and the error status is ‘0xc000000e’. For now, I’m mainly going to start using my Twitter and Tumblr for short, brief postings while my far more technology-savvy friends in the University of Washington help me to figure out the problem and then eliminate the problem. Ugh, worst timing for my laptop to malfunction on a Friday and possibly for the rest of the Fourth of July weekend…
P.S. I got an invitation to Google+, thanks to a connection to a staff member part of the developing team for it. For those who don’t know, Google+ is like Facebook, but so much better now that I’ve been using and checking it out. So, do let me know if you have one as well and if you’d like to become friends in circles!
