The Nerv of Some People!

Just a little rant:

Folks, Neon Genesis Evangelion is a great show. Is it the best show ever? No. Is it the best show of its kind? Not even. Is it one of the best? Maybe. Is it perfect? No. Fuck, though, if it isn't extremely well directed most of the time, with all sorts of amazing scene composition, human behavior study, and great mecha action set to beautiful music. It's still my favorite Gainax production, next to Wings of the Honneamise and Ebichu Minds The House.

True, it's been milked more than the Guidas Supercow and most of its first generation of American fans either never got over their initial reactions or are just complete fucking retards. True, companies in Japan put out as many Evangelion-related products as they can. True, it's not some complex theological tapestry, an allegory for the modern man. It's a mecha/shonen program with a "monster of the week" format and somewhat convulted underpinnings.

Sci Fi vs Gurren Lagann

As many of you know by now Gurren Lagann has begun its first airing in the United States. Every Monday at 11PM EST you can catch two new episodes, airing only on the Sci Fi channel. Sounds great right? An amazing series with an average dub getting air time is always great. Unfortunately Sci Fi, best known for bringing us epic series' such as Battlestar Galactica and countless original movies no one will ever watch, is ruining the experience. If you've yet to tune in you might be asking how. Let's start by looking at some basic times...

1&1 Sales: A Story of Fail

As some of you may already know imgDump.info has successfully used up the file limitations on it's host. In order to address the issue and continue to expand imgDump I've contacted the host, 1&1. The email I sent them is as follows. (Minus a few spelling mistakes I've only noticed now >_
Hello,

I have been a customer of 1&1 for a long time now with two separate hosting accounts.

Recently I have hit the file quota on my one account, 255,410 of 262,144 used. My storage space and bandwidth quota are still well within reasonable bounds.

In order to develop my site further I need to add more files (all of which are web content).

Is it possible to increase this limit and continue my services?

11 Features Snow Leopard Needs To Have

With the eventual release of Apple's OSX "Snow Leopard" there are a few things I'd like to see added along the the current slurry of performance updates. Before I get into the features I believe it'd be in best interest to mention where I'm coming from with these suggestions. I'm not an Apple fanboy (or Microsoft/Linux fanboys for that matter) and feel that of the three main OS"s out there each has it's pros and cons. I got my first Mac (a beautiful 24in iMac which I adore) just over 7 months ago and things, for the most part, have been good since. I figured I know nothing about OSX so I might as well be a big geek, get one, and see how things go. Better to know multiple systems than work on a single one anyway. I still use my windows laptops often, both running XP. I used Vista for a while when it first came out, in a machine that wasn't the least bit equipped to run it, only to go back to XP later.

The Usual Suspects

The Usual Suspects: Who's Next In The Bat-Parade?

So, most of us (if not all of us) have by now seen The Dark Knight. If you haven't, please do so. Go on. I'll wait. Done? Good. Now that we've all seen it, I'm sure that we've already been wondering which of Batman's colorful rogue's gallery will be the featured villian in the next in Christopher Nolan's series. Now, remember, while Batman has a lot of different villians, the Nolanverse seems to stress a commitment to the believable (that is, if you can accept the premise of Batman existing). And while it may be a stretch to think that a tortured rich man swings from roof to roof dressed in a Bat outfit every night, there are some villians which break even this thin standard. So, while Batman has a lot of enemies, some are much more likely to be featured than others.
