That's really suck :/ Perhaps you should try elsewhere, but if her birthday is close, then you may need to get some faster shipping.


Now, in some other loot... full geek power this time. Hardware loot!

Better say, I just created a monster. Core i5 3570k, clocked at 3.4ghz initially, I can reach 4.5ghz quite easily. Graphic card is a HD7850, factory overclocked at 920mhz and I can reach 1100mhz, and certainly more but I have yet too push it.

Now, this might come in handy eventually in the future if I ever decide to scan some more stuff. It will crunch scan faster than anything I had and while I'm away, but for now, gaming!

I wish I could upgrade like that, I'm still using my P4 @ 3Ghz and it's a nightmare when I have to compress or rend stuff. My last upgrade was a PCI SCSI card and an IBM 10Gb SCSI disk I found laying around xD

Gat a small package yesterday. Took a long time to arrive (I blame customs)

Didn't get much. Just 1 magazine: Dengeki G's Festival vol.26 (2012 June)
Comes with a D.C.III dakimakura cover size 155x50 cm

I'm really happy with this as it is the 3rd time I buy a magazine for the dakimakura cover. the other 2 times were a year or 2 ago and the quality of the covers back then was horrible. I said I wouldn't buy a magazine ever again for the dakimakura cover. But I was told that the quality really improved since back then and you could compair it with a retail (much more expensive one). I tested this out with this magazine and it is true. A much higher quality material is used and it has even a zipper closing. Still a single side print but I don't ask for more as that with this quality and at such a low price.

Picture of magazine, dakimakura cover and 2 other included items here bellow.

Image

I was curious to know how many dakimakura covers I had by now and I was surprised I wasn't far from what I could guess/remember :P

Want to know? I would be able to change my dakimakura covers on both my pillows every week for the next 119 days.

You have too many dakimakura xD. Myself I have 5 I think.

Otherwise, I don't really count this as an upgrade, it's the first time I have ever built a rig. The other computer I own are all laptops. Now the only thing I can do is add a SSD eventually ( not an OCZ xD ), toward the end of the year and perhaps change/add fans, though I'm rarely hitting 80C while in normal use, that is, not benching.

Well, after writing an email to the seller, he apologized and sent me another one, which he apparently ordered from Rightstuf. It got here on the 6th. That's nice of him.

The Japanese study journal order is STILL PENDING. :twisted:

And Atelier Meruru to make me forget the horrors of Diablo III's Inferno difficulty. Sadly, NISA changed the JP jacket with Kishida Mel's art with some edited stuff >.<

Woo. ..I see some awesome stuff in that loot their. >Enter jealousy here< X]. Higabana doujin?!

I love FMA. Envy is so hard-core. ..though I honestly thought he was a girl. ]X .

Meagan`s package shipped. But. Baka Aizawa used SAL. I never used this. ..EMS was my thing. ..It says 'departure from office of exchange' for two days now. I heard SAL was ~very~ unreliable. And I had too pick it up from the office myself. But I heard from this point I can't track it. I made a post about my paranoia. I must track it everyday. x] . Anyone can give me the scoop about SAL? This was a Pixiv artbook (2010 Girl's Collection via e-Bay). thanks!

I've had stuff shipped to me via SAL before and haven't had any problems. I wouldn't worry until there is actually a problem.

... So on further investigation it seems that the book is actually not released yet until July 17. Ha.

We're having the worst of luck with parcels. XD .Hope you get yours.
Since May 31, it still says the same thing, apparantly it's in New York with no Zip code. Okay. I will not choose SAL anymore. XD
