Holiday over! Japan was fun. I don’t have much time for a full update, but a small recap might be in order.
Good things happened!
F&P made peace with Stardock, everyone wins! This means great things for the Ur-Quan Universe. Not much is out yet but the news makes me happy.
New Licences for DoAX3F! Lei-Fand and Misaki are now playable (though DLC) characters in PS4’s DoAX3! Hopefully Team Ninja releases rest of the girls too. At least Tina and Christie.
Road to JLPT4
While in Japan, I noticed that my verbal skills are much better than my written skills. JLPT4 should not be too impossible, but the grammar might be. But then again, I might actually learn some basics that I’ve missed.
(… Technically I could go for JLPT3 too, but I don’t want to lose all my spare time)
The New computer allowed me to upgrade my older machine to the latest Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and it sapped my time since the upgrade didn’t go well. Five times I was greeted by initramfs and partial upgrades. Eventually it booted, but that was my half of my Easter vacation! It might be that the HDD on that machine is dying.
The plan was to finish the battle module on my g2p, but transferring my accounts/data is quite important. It really bums me out, but oh well, time to do another plan.
I was able to test newer emulators since this machine is much more powerful and 3DS, PS2 and NGC does boot, but at 20-80% of normal performance. The good thing is that I can add support for there to ixbar3000. I also did some git magick since I’ve used few accounts and they were added as separate users (not that anyone cares).
And hockey season was not successful this year. Tappara got Bronze and Penguins got into top 16. Next season, better season!
Many thing to do. Too many actually. I need to prioritize the g2p since godot 2 is no longer supported and I won’t port the codebase to the new engine. Workwork!
A friend gave me his old laptop and this weekend I’ve been trying to install the OS for it. Serious issues with Windows 7 as it failed during install, because the machine has USB3 and Windows 7 doesn’t support that. Why does it need to fail there?! Can’t I install a bare-bones version and update the damn drivers later.
Ubuntu 18.04 installed fine, but there’s one very annoying feature: Screen rotate. During the installation the display kept rotating! I suppose there’s a sensor that is broken or just hyper and that causes the screen to auto-rotate, but shouldn’t this be fixed by default?
I’d like to get the W7 to work as graphics will be faster (I think). It does boot PS2 & NCG, but runs at 50-80%.
And yeah, I skipped the weekly report, not much progress. I need to re-plan projects. And actually since my new computer can handle more, I might continue with ixbar3000 again. Oh yeah. I did make some art.
