Title: I Live!
Post by: Galaxia on September 10, 2010, 10:47:45 pm
I don't have much time for the regular internet anymore, and I don't really watch anime anymore. Japanese TV and movies yes, but I haven't watched anime in years. I don't even know how Tenchi ends.
I lost contact with pretty much everyone I used to talk to, so if you were on the old board, out yourself. I probably remember you.

Where I am:

Yahoo: Circe154
MSN: Circe154@hotmail.com (Their mac client sucks and it hates my phone, so if I'm online, its some sort of miracle)
AIM: Circe89
Gtalk: circe889@gmail.com

Welcome back!

Thanks, before you closed the original board, I tried to re-register, but my account never got approved.

Hmm, must have been when the bots were driving me nuts.  Had over 2000 users before I closed it, and I'd say that less than 10 were real people intending to post.

Yeah, before I registered, you'd been telling me on Y! about the bot problem.


Title: Re: I Live!
Post by: Webmaster_Kami on September 10, 2010, 11:36:05 pm
The problem almost popped up here too.  After changing the registration settings a bit, they've stopped.

Remember Fatz from Second Life? He has a vBullitin forum and was having the same problem. I don't know what he did to fix it, but even when he turned on approval they still managed to PM everyone spam.

I think I do remember him.  On this board, I had the option of setting the security level of the picture you have to examine while registering, it's on the highest right now.  Supposed to make it harder for bots.


Title: Re: I Live!

I think bots have found a way around that. Captchas are getting ridiculous. Some of those download websites like to come up with untypeable ones. They'll throw in math symbols that aren't on the keyboard.


Title: Re: I Live!
Post by: Webmaster_Kami on September 10, 2010, 11:50:48 pm
Hmm, well for one reason or another, bots don't seem to be getting to the email stage in registration.  Before I required account activation, a couple bots registered with fake email addresses, and I got the undeliverable mail.  I've noticed some "guests" recently that view the registration page and then don't actually register.  Might be actual people, might not be.

Could be robots archiving the site too.

I don't even know how Tenchi ends.

Hehe, nobody else does either but we are still making hypothetical guesses!

Ooops almost forgot ... welcome back Galaxia! ^_^

Post by: Webmaster_Kami on September 14, 2010, 12:21:31 am
If only we could ask Tenchi's half brother in the future.  Then again, with Tenchi's ancestry, he might live a very long time and not have to choose any time soon.

I could have sworn that the OAV continuation, way back when, was being billed as the conclusion.

My cat's gotten nice and fat since the last time either of you have seen her.

Heh, cute, calico, right?  We've had one here for almost a couple of years, named Calley.  She likes to eat, and spends more time resting and sleeping than any other cat I've seen.  She's nothing like her hyperactive brother, Samwise (usually Sammy), who we got at the same time.  I'll put my new camera to use and get a couple of shots of them.

I guess by "conclusion" they meant "last OVA in that timeline starring Tenchi".


Title: Re: I Live!
Post by: Galaxia on September 15, 2010, 10:51:31 pm
I think, she's really just a mutt. Eating and sleeping are basically all she does.

Yes, that one, I think. Remember I bought a disk online that was supposed to be the first episode, and when we went to watch it, it was just a trailer? Whatever that trailer belonged to.

It's not too unusual for a cat, some just sleep more than others.  The other four cats here tend to be more active.  Sammy likes to jump up to high places and knock things down, and shred wooden surfaces with his claws.  He's also taken to biting into clear plastic bags with baked goods inside them.  He doesn't care about the bread, he just likes tearing into the plastic.  A very affectionate cat though.

Here's Sammy, he was, um, hunting.  About two years old now.

cute

Post by: Webmaster_Kami on September 17, 2010, 11:44:49 pm
He does "cute" pretty well, and seems to love cameras, or the attention he gets, at least.  I'll get one of Calley soon, she tends to sleep in poorly lit spots.  I avoid using the flash when I can.  Sammy came out better with just the light already in that room.

Mine hides when I pull out the camera. She's even at the point where she hides when I pull out my phone. I had a "cat piano" app (http://www.apptism.com/apps/cat-piano), and she would run to it for awhile, now that she's figured out there's no cat, she doesn't bother

There are two kinds of things here that terrify Sammy and the other cats.  Vacuums, with all the noise and motion along the floor, and a Slinky.  The blue and purple plastic Slinky is sure to make Sammy nervous.

LOL
Kitty's terrified of leaves. If a storm blows leaves against the door, she'll meow at them until someone goes outside and sweeps them up. And the vacuum, and plastic bags, and sneezes...

Cats tend to be jittery little things.  Here's a pic of Calley, it takes a lot to make her nervous.  She can lay there and calmly sleep through most anything.  (Appearing to sleep while sitting up, sometimes.)

Sleeping sitting up is a new one.

I'll get a photo the next time she does it, she somehow pulls it off.

Aw, very cute, it's a bit like that, except she stays sitting up like a statue.

Kitty's currently hiding under my bed. Since I got one that doesn't have drawers on the bottom, it's one of her favorite spots.

Luna hides under beds sometimes, if she's really spooked for some reason.  Sammy hides under them when he can, I think partly because he knows we can't reach him.  He does the same thing under this desk, where he's likely to chew on cords.

Kitty loved the cords to my stereo until I got a shelf with a covered back so she couldn't reach them. Sometimes I swear she's suicidal.

Having no back to this corner desk can be a problem.  With lots of space behind it, one of our cats like to jump up back there, crawl past this Mac and send countless items falling to the floor as she settles in.  A few of our cats like to get up high, Sammy especially, he'll sleep on top of the cupboards where we keep dishes.

Kitty's pretty good about staying off my desk. She'll get up here, but she stays away from the computer.
