Re: How is Your Day Going? Wrath of the Smecchi's

I'll just post this here to avoid opening a new thread. It happens that I love cooking, and I usually use kikkoman soy sauce. The problem is that here, it is bloody expensive (3€, about 4USD the 250ml bottle). Does anyone know where to buy it at a reasonable price? I've seen 1L bottles at amazon, bu...

Re: How is Your Day Going? Wrath of the Smecchi's

An old friend of the family passed away today. It was suddenly and were still not sure what happened. They're thinking a heart attack though. His name was Joe and he was such a sweet man. I have known him my whole life practically. It's just really sad. Say a prayer/think good thoughts/send good wi...

Re: How is Your Day Going? Wrath of the Smecchi's

My mother worked in the family business while pregnant until she was so fat that she could not even fit in the car, and I turned out reasonably good. As long as she doesn't force herself too much you'll be OK.

Don't worry about it, if there could be something wrong, the doctor would have told you. Relax and enjoy the experience :)

Re: Woot! New Goodies!

Yes, around here almost all comic stores use them too. but they only sell A4 and the small comic size (which is a bit smaller that the size I'm looking for). And yes, They are package freaks. I've only received one package from japan (A small book) and it came utterly covered in plastic, bubble wrap...

Re: Woot! New Goodies!

Now that I see those doujins in plastic protectors, ¿Do you guys know where can I buy a pack of those? I have the last issues of cosplaygen still in the bubble wrap because the satin paper gets really messy when left on the shelf and I want to protect them, but I haven't found any bag fitting that s...

Re: How is Your Day Going? Wrath of the Smecchi's

Yeah, where my mother works they have also tons of screens (around 40) used 10 daily hours for editing/printing/etc works and they have one of those too. Costs a zillion Euros, but the results are really impressive. I don't think you need to calibrate al the screen tho, just the one you use for edit...

Re: How is Your Day Going? Wrath of the Smecchi's

The calibration is not that expensive. A decent calibration set costs around 150$ and if you treat it well it can last ages. Not professional, but does the trick for the mere mortals. Also, you only need to calibrate the screen once in a while (2-3 months depending on the monitor uptime hours), so y...

Re: How is Your Day Going? Wrath of the Smecchi's

My 'gaming rig' is the same that 8 years ago: P4, 1Gb RAM and ATI radeon X800. I don't need more to play theme park world and a random shooter/RPG and emulate gameboy games. I only need sound cards and MOAR HARD DRIVES! No matter how much can it hold, I've discovered that you never have enough stora...

Re: How is Your Day Going? Wrath of the Smecchi's

@Quenlin: ¿Extremely larger files? I fail to see how a (recent) mac can be better on that. Until the G5 (PPC processors) they were great for compiling, processing data and compressing, but now that they use intel processors MACs are just overpriced PCs with standard components. I don't think they ar...

Re: How is Your Day Going? Wrath of the Smecchi's

@Merun: There are some known issues with some brands of SSDs. IMO the technology is not ready enough to consider them safe. But again, it's just a matter of luck. If you have a valid warranty on them you should have nor problems at all (I hope) @Aizawa: If I had truckloads of money I'd live far away...
