Netflix: Erased

Erased, a.k.a. Boku Dake ga Inai Machi, is one of my favourite anime shows of the past couple of years.  Beautifully animated, tightly scripted, perfectly acted, and emotionally intense.


There's also a Japanese live action movie that I haven't seen.

And now a Netflix series.

I think I'm going to decide it's really good but never actually watch it, rather than destroying my last remaining faith in humanity.

Heading To Vegas

If you have any interest in video editing, this is a really good deal.  The current Humble Bundle offers Vegas Pro (normally $399 by itself) and a bunch of other applications for visual and audio effects, graphics, and music, for a total of $20.

Update: Small catch, it's Vegas 14 and they just released Vegas 15.  Still, 95% off not counting all the other bits in the bundle.

Tohru Gets Reviewed


The first 13 minutes are mostly about toilets, so I've set it to skip that part.

Server Migration

We'll be moving servers either next weekend or the following one.

The current server is kind of expensive, and I've kept it around because moving servers is a pain.  Thanks to a post-Black-Friday special offer and account credit with another hosting provider, I've managed to bag a new server with basically the same capacity for just $107.10 for the next 12 months.  Not $107.10 per month, but for the entire year.  (More thereafter, but still a fraction of what I spend currently.)

I'll get things in gear tomorrow and most likely do the migration next weekend, so that it's all bedded down well before Christmas.

Update: The server is named Mikan, which is one of my roster of anime-schoolgirl-goddess-colour-names.*

I couldn't remember where I took the name Mikan from.  I did a quick Google and aha!  Gakuen Alice.  I haven't thought about Gakuen Alice in years.  Now I want to go watch it again.


* That is, the mu.nu / mee.nu / mee.* servers are all named after anime schoolgirls who are also goddesses (or at least magical) and whose names are also colours.  There's more of those than you might think.

What Pixy Is Watching


Last weekend I was bored and didn't have the energy to do anything much, and there was nothing of interest on Netflix* and I didn't feel like poking around the current anime season, so I thought, why the hell not?

I've been going through about four episodes a day since then and just started on Next.  Plan to go the whole way through - four full seasons, six OVAs, and five movies. And maybe Lost Universe as well, which is kinda-sorta related.

I've already started having dreams set to the Slayers score.

* Netflix Australia has about one tenth the content of the US version.  It's pretty sad.

I Think I Should Buy A Cat

Sorry about any site glitches, we're getting hit by a 7.4Gbit DDOS attack.  That's not big in the overall scale of things, but is enough that some of the sites on the server are still down and I need to migrate things elsewhere.

Possibly not directly related:
