Dreamhost = Bandwidth Galore!!!


I just logged into my Dreamhost Control Panel (the webhost that I use), and read an announcement that they’ve just quadrupled the disk space and octupled the bandwidth!

Seriously folks, this is a lot. Now I can serve a terabyte of stuff every month without going over my quota! On top of that, the allowed bandwidth increases by 8GB a week! For a quick comparison, I used about 1 GB of bandwidth my entire first month. 

With all this extra bandwidth, I need some ideas on how to use it. I was thinking of serving MP3s, but I don’t know how legal that would be (is it legal if I serve the TV audio rips of OP and EDs?). My DDR Videos also kinda took some bandwith, but they’re fairly small.

Give me some ideas on how I can put all this bandwidth to good use… Of course, I think serving entire episodes is totally out of the question…

Oh, and if you were thinking of getting a webhost, seriously consider Dreamhost. The service is cheap ($7.95 a month if you prepay for a year) and pretty reliable. Tell em BasuGasuBakuhatsu (notoupee) sent ya! You can use the promo code BASUGASU50 when you register, and get $50 off, which also helps me pay for my hosting bill too! Awesome!

Anime Gaming

My first DDR Arcade experience!

So last weekend, a couple of out-of-town buddies called me up and wanted to hang out. Their idea? Go to the mall. A trip to the mall isn’t really my idea of a good time, but I hadn’t seen those guys in a while, so off we went.

Paradise Kiss – Anime First Impressions

Paradise Kiss, or ParaKiss is it’s sometimes called, was originally a shoujo manga that has also been released in the US. I think I read somewhere that the manga is really popular over here too. I haven’t read the manga at all, so this preview is just based on the first episode of the anime.


Happy New Year! + my anime resolution

Happy New Year to all. At least, I think the whole globe has gotten into the new year by now. How did everyone use their extra second? I used mine to sleep (I can use all the sleep I can get).

As the new year draws upon us, I have one anime-related New Year’s resolution: to finish the series I’m watching! Seriously, I’ve gotten pretty far in a bunch of anime, but haven’t completed them.

I think it’s partly a fear that unfinished series will be dropped by whoever’s subbing them, and I’ll never know happens (unless the series gets licensed). I also have this problem with RPGs (because I don’t want the experience to end), where I’ll stop right before the final boss (I did this in FF7).

Here’s a list of complete seasons of anime on my hard drive I resolve to finish watching(+ all the new ones I’ll watch this year):

  • Bakuretsu Tenshi
  • Full Metal Alchemist
  • Futakoi Alternative
  • Mahou Sensei Negima (on episode 19)
  • Mahoraba (Only 2 episodes to go anyway!)
  • Maburaho (Might’ve gotten this one confused with Mahoraba on occasion)
  • Mezzo DSA (Why not? It’s short!)
  • Okusama wa Mahou Shoujo (I just kinda started this one)
  • ROD The TV (Kind of got uninterested in the plot, I’ll try again)
  • Rozen Maiden (Season 1!)
  • Sensei no Ojikan (I don’t want this one to end!)
  • Tenjou Tenge (haven’t watched this in a while)
  • Tsukuyomi Moon Phase (I need to get in the neko mimi mood)
  • Ultra Maniac (Did someone say shoujo?)

Pretty big list, huh? I also didn’t include series that haven’t been fully subbed yet. Add those to the list, and I have a monumental amount of work ahead. Wait, did I say "work"? I mean anime enjoyment…
