Gomen... Didn't Mean to Make Anyone Wait
I'm well aware of the fact that I haven't touched this site in a LONG while, but right now, I'm actually finally getting around to working on my redesign for K-Bug Anime, so please bear with me on this one. On a side note, it's no longer called Tokyo Bum. The name's been changed to Trippy, and I'm also not making it an anime resource. I came to realization that my efforts would be wasted since there are already so many of those kind of sites. What I'm focusing on now is a site that is much more personal... in a sense, it's like an art site. There will still be stuff like "what the hell is anime?" and so on, but it's not as detailed as what the rest of the site is going to be. It's possible that Trippy will also serve as a homebase for all my other sites, gathering them there. I also plan on making a Final Fantasy VI site dedicated to my favorite heroine, Terra Branford. But that's coming after I'm done with Trippy. I'm also not planning to use Adobe GoLive for this one 'cause I want a really good table layout, and only a program such as Dreamweaver excels in that area. Don't believe me? Check out Dais and Kento's Room, a Ronin Warriors fansite that used Dreamweaver for its layout. And it's all tables too. You can see for yourself in the source code.
Well that's about all I can say right now. Summer school is keeping me incredibly busy, so it does suck that I can't work on my current sites as much as I'd like too. My continuation of my personal manga has been delayed as well. At the very least, I'm trying my best to make it through this. Like I said before, please bear with me here.

Alright, well I finally managed to get my lazy butt off the ground and edited three pages that contained my tokyo-3.com e-mail addy. So now, it's officially Nelmaki_Antix@j-fan.com. I don't know if there'll be any other updates soon, but the next thing I'll be doing is adding on the font sets later. Until then...

I know I mentioned like last week that I'd update the site and change my e-mail, but I never really got around to it. Stupid teachers at SHHS decided to load all the students with like last-minute projects, so I've pretty much been frickin' tired all week. In fact, I was up until 5 a.m. this morning B.S.-ing my 15 page research paper (it turned out to be 22 in all), while at the same time, figuring out how I was going to present a 50 minute PowerPoint presentation with 4 other people in my group for APUSH. Luckily, it went over really well, and everyone loved the weird rapping I did (yay!). So that's basically it. Hopefully I'll fix up stuff here during the weekend, but no guarantees.

Change of E-mail
AnimeNation announced recently that they're going to start charging for their e-mail service due to user consumption of their bandwidth. The rates are going to be $4.95 per month, and there's no WAY in hell that I'm going to shell out cash just for two e-mail addresses. Therefore, I signed up for a new e-mail account at J-Fan, and it's already active. I have not updated the e-mail links on this site yet, so I'll update this page again when I have. Until then, nobody e-mail me PLEASE!!! Thanks for your cooperation.

I added the image for Jen's Homepage, so now it's not a text link anymore, plus, I added a new link called Renegade Webpagelords, which hosts a variety of anime links (it's an anime-link-specific site). Thanks go out to the webmaster Brian Uhe for adding Club Cyberia up there in the Serial Experiments Lain section. That's about all I've got for now (I have to get back to homework). If you want to read rants, go to my LiveJournal (it's updated almost everyday). I've decided to keep this page as an updates page, so no further rants will be posted here.

Yes, you heard me right, I've finally got some updates on the site! It's not really a big thing, but either way, updates are updates. I removed the links to a couple of Lain sites since they are either non-existant or have been taken down by the webmasters. Included was Fulfill the Prophecy, a great Lain site that was taken down simply because the webmistresses could no longer find the patience to maintain it. You will not be forgotten. Also, I added a new link in "Basement": if you're looking for some great screenshots of the Lain Playstation game that was only released in Japan, then be sure to check out Jen's Homepage.
I also added Club Cyberia's first award! I actually kept forgetting to put this badge up, but anyway, thanks to Jono over at the Anime Zone for this kick-ass Ryoko silver award!!! ^______________^
Soon-to-come: I finally figured out how to add fonts on web sites (it was the easiest thing in the world to figure out, but I was so stupid to not have noticed earlier), so be on the look-out for the Lain font probably next weekend or something since I have to concentrate this week on preparing for the SAT test next Saturday! Yikes.
Other stuff: My friend from school was generous enough to go through the trouble of setting me up a LiveJournal account, so if you're curious to read some more entries, go here (there's only 2 so far).

For a while now, my stupid computer has been running with a pretty serious virus loaded in the System folder of my hard drive, completely affecting the peformance speed and access to programs. Why? How? All I'm going to say is that if you get an e-mail that says "A New Game," "A Funny Game," or anything that has the words "A" and "Game" in it, don't download the program. An image is included in the attachments, but the file itself is a .EXE program, and it will invade the files that your system depends on to run. Of course, I was STUPID enough to open the damn thing out of curiousity, and boom, I got a virus, although there was no announcement of it. The next day, my computer became a bitch, and I couldn't understand why until I remembered that I opened the attachment. Secondly, whoever is going around sending it has been hacking into e-mail accounts and sending the virus through there. This happened to me at one of my other e-mails, where the culprit used MY address and mailed the virus to some lady I didn't even know.
Of course, I tried the obvious which was to let my antivirus software take care of it. Unfortunately, the software itself could not remove the virus code, and my only choice was to delete the infected files. HOWEVER, even by deleting the infected files, the virus would only spread to more files. The solution: back up every damn file on my drive and insert the recovery disc, choosing the "reformat and restore" option. Did it work? Hell yes! The downside: now I have to reinstall all the software I ever put on this computer in the first place, argh!!! >.< But at the very least, the virus is gone, and for those of you who are curious as to the virus file name (which I could not find at all on my hard drive), it is: WORM_KLEZ.E. It managed to infect 47 of my files, and after deleting those, it just infected some more.
But anyway, end of that story. SAT 9 has been going okay so far, and tomorrow's the last day. My perverted history teacher played us a kick-ass German flick called Run Lola Run when we finished with our tests early. Speaking of movies, Metropolis is out!!! I'll probably run to Suncoast and get it this weekend since I have to return this hat I got from SkinMarket (which will, undoubtedly, give me $21 back). Oh yeah, but aside from all this joyfulness, this weekend will be total and complete hell. The only time I'll be feeling good is when I'm sitting my ass down in front of the TV watching CN's Adult Swim. There's nothing like some anime to cheer a bummed person up. ^_^
Okay, so what I meant by weekend hell was this: 1) I have to meet my English partners and start working on our Great Gatsby project tomorrow after school. 2) Because of #1, I have skip out on my SAT tutoring, which means I'll have to sit there for 4 hours next week, on the Friday before my actual SAT test!!! 3) My stupid history teacher assigned us this ludicrous weekend task of reviewing chapters 1-44 of our book for the AP Examination on May 10. It is required to study with a partner, and you get 25/25 if you study from 6-8 hours, and you're placed on the honor system of not cheating this. Of course, I'm sure everyone in my class will do that, but my partner is hardcore religious, and she doesn't believe in cheating, which means.... I'm fucked. 4) Today was another club meeting, and the president gave me a lecture about how I need to bring in my finished artwork so that we can get the damn comic book put together. The original plan of selling the comics is, of course, scrapped. We can't afford the publishing fee, and now the plan is to just distribute the comics amonst ourselves. So, this weekend, I'm gonna have to work my ass off on this manga of mine since I hardly touched it during Spring Break. Once again, I'm fucked. And a side note: I changed my manga title AGAIN. I'm going to hope that I won't change it anymore, and to think that I promised to myself last time that I would keep The Blue Lifestyle for sure, but now that I've thought about it so much, I removed two words from the title, giving me the final product of just Blue, which sounds a lot more depressing and dramatic. The term blue, whether it pertains to color or a mental state, conceals a deeper meaning behind it that is mysterious and awkward, supported by positive or negative connotations. This is my favorite color, and it also seems to be my favorite state of mind as well: depressed. I am one helluva depressed person, and I don't even know why. I think I like it, but at the same time, I don't.
And now you know. Don't bother me about the name change --- I like it the way it is right now. ^_^

The Sleep Goes Away But Decides to Hit Me Now
I actually woke up this morning for school wide awake, but then during 2nd period, I was lulled to sleep again, and this was during someone's presentation too (we were still giving those damn 50 minute presentations)! I felt pretty bad, and hoped that the presenters didn't take notice, because if they did, they would probably think that I was bored with them or something when that wasn't even the case. To tell the truth, they did BETTER than my partner and I on our first day, but thankfully, our final score was 65/50!!! Wow, lots of extra credit! ::is happy::
But anyway, after school, I saw one of the presenters at my SAT math tutoring class and told her that she did a great job. She smiled and told me that the teacher gave her presentation a "45/50," and I was really shocked by this. But she told me that the reason for this was probably 'cause her partner didn't say as much as she did (her partner was incredibly nervous), and it's mandatory that both partners speak for equal amonts of the time or else points will be deducted. At the very least, they got a 90%, so it's an A, or an A-, however you want to look at it. Oh, and, speaking of math tutor, halfway through the class, my sleepiness overcame me, and I couldn't even solve a simple math problem because of my damn tiredness!!! I eyes continuously flickered, and my body was swaying around in my chair, and then my mind felt like I was accelerating and spinning around at the same time. Thankfully, I managed to pull myself together and get through the class without any embarressments...
When I got home, it was exactly 6 p.m. on the dot. I immediately went on to my computer and started messing around online, of course. 2 hours later, I'm frickin' tired YET AGAIN, and so I leave my desk and snooze for god-knows-how-long. I woke up just 10 minutes ago, and it's now 9:54 p.m. I haven't done any homework at all, but luckily, all the homework I have is due on Wednesday, when I have my 4, 5, and 6 periods. Either way, I should actually get a small start on it to save me the workload tomorrow (what if my English teacher decides to toss something in tomorrow, right?). SAT 9 starts tomorrow, and the first day will be totally focused on reading comprehension, reading vocabulary, and language --- all the verbal bullshit. Wednesday will be a nightmare with math, science, and standards history social science part 1. Thursday: standard language arts, standards history social science part 2. Friday: standards math part 1, standards math part 2. I'm doomed, but from what came on the morning announcements today, there will be some sort of pizza party for all students if we play nicely. ::laughs:: My ass, I'll make a bet that we have to pay for it too...
Well, I better get going then. I'll probably post again Wednesday, but who really knows.
