They also note that there's apparently a native (ie no need for X11) version of KOffice on the way.
BTW, if you want to see that SNL/TV Funhouse piece, check the comments in the previous entry. ^_^ Many thanks to hawthorn for the original FLV file.
Princess Princess is aarinfantasy's latest project, and.. it's amusing. ^_^ Definitely one I'll be keeping up with. It's centered around a new transfer student, who suspects there's something a little odd about his new school..
KIBA ep.2 - ah, not bad, but not one I think I'll bother following; it's more the kind of series I'd be happy to watch along with some friends. The format seems to be gearing up to be another combat game-inspired show, with each "shard caster" having control of a "spirit" they cast into battle. There does seem to be a story behind it all, though, and the design's vaguely reminiscent of a more technological El Hazard - worth a look if that kind of story appeals.
Gintama eps.1-2 are/is.. a series with a historical flavor, set in the future. It's a comedy, but often tries a bit too hard for my tastes, winding up being self-consciously Wacky™. If you liked Excel Saga and Cowboy Bebop, this might be worth trying. I'll leave it here.
Speaking of TV, something that you might want to look at: Rob Newman's History of Oil (50MB, 368x208 MPEG-4, zipped). It's adapted from his one-man stage show, augmented with clips here and there; it's satirical, educational, cutting, piled with snark, and very funny. ^_^
Seems Apple had a pretty decent Q1 2006: profit of $410m on $4.36b revenue, equating to 47¢ per diluted share, compared to $290m on $3.24b, 34¢/d.s. in Q1 2005.
Ah, cool beans! PCSX test3 does seem to work pretty well, at least with Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko (mmm, shiny..). Now, if only there were a good PS2 emulator.. or PSP, for that matter. ^_^ (Maybe there's a good GameCube one?)
So, the "Sponsored+" level of LJ account comes to pass. And yes, if you're not a paid user, you'll see ads from those journals. I'd say this blows goats, but.. hey.. Frank? [Edit: actually, it's unclear whether ads will show in a free user's friends page. I'll want to look into this for a definitive answer] [Edit again: here appears to be the answer, assuming you're a free user. If you view the journal of a "sponsored" user, you'll see ads - but you won't see them in your own Friends page]
Yay! Passed the first stage in the AC:WW turnip trade. ^_^ Wendell was wandering around, so I managed to receive the turban in exchange for the red turnip. Next step is to wait for Sahara to turn up again, which could take some time.. and hope I receive the massage chair rather than the red vase. (Oh, never realised that.. you can join in conversations two villagers hold between each other)
And picture for the day, without a question, has to be this beautiful piece from Seel Kaiser and Skifi.
