I'll agree with you on that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

One of the places we'll visit is Ikebukuro, which has the Pokemon mega center and some other stores. It also has Otome Road, a street that has a lot of stores/cafes for female otaku. In case you thought only the male otaku were being catered to...

 

The best part of this vid is the girl's reactions, honestly. The Pocky is a good fake-out to pretend kiss. Maybe if there was a manlier/buff version, but TMM would never be up for that, and I'd be too embarrassed to go on my own. :D

This is how crazy I am. Bold purple are the areas, pink is must-see, yellow is see-if-we-can, blue are the hotels, green are full-day trips outside Tokyo, and the magenta in the bottom left is a rough breakdown of how much time we'll have to ourselves each day. I figured 12hr days, roughly from 10am to 10pm, minus 2hrs for meals/breaks, minus 3hrs when we might get together with family. Not figuring in travel time except for the longer ones which I know how long it will take. Purple areas show how much time I expect we'll spend. I definitely need to make some cuts, especially in Asakusa/Akihabara. One or two arcades should be fine, I don't need to hit them all. :D I also need TMM to take a closer look at the toy stores and take off a few options. I haven't looked too hard into the owl cafes yet, there's quite a few in Tokyo and the decision may end up being whichever fits into the schedule better.

 

I normally don't get this detailed for trips but I really want to make sure we maximize our time there, but not get dead tired. I plan to make maps of each area and mark down the places we want to go (probably just use Google Maps and number the destinations, but the guidebook has nice mini maps too). I still have to keep it flexible, like the Eorzea Café we're hoping to get in at 7pm since it has allotted time slots and the last one at 7pm one lets you stay 3hrs. However, it is way too early to reserve right now, and probably will be until a month before hand. Also haven't gone into Osaka here but there's just one or two places I'm planning on since we have less time.

 

I think I mis-entered the info for Kawagoe, will fix later.

I tried doing something like this years ago. More local mind you. We started and fell way behind and chose to slow down and do 1-2 of the 5-6 things just so we could enjoy them more. I hope it works out where you two can fully enjoy the trip.

Yeah, there's definitely going to be some see-how-we-feel. Definitely going to try to hit the must-see areas first and take it from there. Tokyo is very condensed so a lot of these are near each other and/or smaller shops.

The place I was referring to was Maui Hawaii. We soooo wanted to do the full Road to Hana but only got halfway and we never made it up to the entire upper western area that has amazing paper plate dinners with the most amazing views. They are on the list for when we eventually go back.

Hawaii would be fun to visit sometime, though I wouldn't want to go in the summer. XD We never had the time/money for a proper honeymoon. We've taken overnight or day trips here and there, and any trips that are longer have been primarily for visiting family/friends out of state. We're sorta treating this trip like a honeymoon, though there will still be some family gatherings.

 

Hotel reservation woes, spoilered b/c rambly.

Pending hotel charge disappeared. I've been trying to get a hold of the bank but since it's on TMM's card/account, they won't talk to me and I haven't been able to get through in the time we're both at home/awake.

Forgot to call the bank with TMM. *slaps forehead* On a side note, I feel like I'm back in school, though I barely bothered to do this sort of thing. Before and after shots. 4 more months... how can I keep myself from going crazier?

Phew. Guess it took a little longer w/ foreign transaction fees? Going to look into getting a travel credit card w/ no transaction fees 2 months before the trip (since most offer bonuses for spending X amount in a few month's time, and it'd be too early to do so now). Still, that's a big relief. Now I don't have to yell at the bank.

Since we're flying out of Boston, looked into different ways to get there from RI. It's a long drive so we didn't want to bother relatives, taxi or keeping the car there would be hella expensive, and Uber/Lyft is iffy. Amtrak prices were pretty cheap, but they don't run that often, so if there's any delays/cancellations, we'd be screwed. Plus the closest it gets is to the main station, we'd have to switch to a local bus to get to the airport. Ended up going for the Peter Pan bus, runs every 2 hours and drops off right at the airport. There was one that would get us there 3hrs before the flight, but still paranoid about breakdowns. Got the earlier bus, *just* in case, so we'll have plenty of time if something goes wrong. I'd rather be 5hrs early than miss the flight. Cost is around $100 round trip for both of us including tax.

 

I've been going back and forth between being calm and obsessing. Worrying a little less about the schedule when we get there, still waiting to hear back from some relatives. Trying to stagger expenses for things. The troll who used to live with in the basement should be able to pet/house sit, so that's less of a worry. Poor dog's gonna need someone to stay with her so she doesn't get too lonely. 3 more months...

Sure. I've traveled a lot and my general rule is 3hrs early for international, 1.5hrs early for domestic at least. I used to work at Chicago O'Hare, but that was over 10yrs ago.

Always plan for the worst.  Always plan for the bus to break down, the lines to be long, and the plane to break.  Just plan for the worst.

Pretty much. It's why I'm not scheduling anything for the day we arrive. Who knows when we'll actually arrive at the hotel, and we can decide if we feel up to poking around after.

 

Getting a bit overwhelmed trying to find things we'll both enjoy, then getting distracted by other things. I'm still on the hunt for an onsen near Tokyo that'll either allow swimsuits or has a nice private room we can rent. Leaning a bit towards Nikko and Edo Wonderland for the full day trip. Found a smaller onsen/amusement area that's themed like a Japanese matsuri, includes renting yukata. On the downside, all the onsen areas are separated gender/naked only. Then there's a spa/pool one really close to the hotel where we'll be staying! ....but, its naked AND mixed gender. On a side note, I'm now wondering if the owl café is such a good idea. If we go, we'll have to *really* research beforehand and make sure they treat their owls right.

Think I've calmed down a little for now. We'll probably take the Skyliner train to Ueno, and then a short cab ride to the hotel from there. A bus to Tokyo station is cheapest, but traffic could be busy at that time and I'd rather avoid navigating local trains during rush hour with luggage. Currently trying to get an idea of how much to set aside for gifts and food, plus all the other things I can't buy until Sept (JR rail pass, tickets to Eorzea café, etc). That doesn't even include stuff for ourselves. City taxes for the car, house, etc are also due in Oct, so, yeah. @[email protected]
