To all AMP3S.ORG users. The forum is currently down at the moment. If you go there at the moment, you should see the following on your screen…

In that case, do not panic. This sort of thing has happened before, and there have been several warnings of it occuring. I would thus suggest you find a place to weather down until it passes. Find something else to pass the time. If you want, leave a comment with your e-mail, and I’ll send you the MSN users for some of the mods.



A little to the left…

Things have been a little quite lately, what with no new episodes of any series I’m currently following popping out. Nevermind that though, I’ve decided to sidetrack a bit instead.

Aurabolt and I were having a bit of a talk over webforums. I then decided to take this oppurtunity to try advertise my two main forums a little.

www.animemp3s.org –  My very first forum. Focus is a little more into music, although the anime discussion areas are quite active too. A good area for music discussion as well. Quite alot of other perks as well, there’s quite a bit of anime OST downloads as well as an area to request other members for particular anime music tracks. Alot of interesting add-ons since the last system upgrade as well, including an arcade…Problem is that it’s currently suffering some sort of server problem…

www.animediscussion.net –  My second main frequented forum. Mainly talks about anime, though, the usual off-topics discussion areas are there. Also holds a moderately active graphics area, where you can show-off, discuss, or even request signatures and avatars. Regular contests are held, and I can promise you the moderators do their job well. (I am, after all, part of the team…) One frequent comment made about the site is that the forum skin is very nice.

@ Aurabolt : I would have gladly put your forum here too if you wanted, but I don’t know the address…

All right, gonna be off on holiday for a week starting tomorrow. Just before I go, I’m going to put up some updates…Where should I start?

Firstly, I’m going to celebrate, cos I’m losing 5kg and counting. Just 5 more to go.

Next, at the risk of giving Gourry a heart attack or something, I’ll update the current standings in the favorite character GP. So far Lina is tied against Rosette…Gourry, do something…

That brings me to the next point. Why do I support Lina in the first place. I have never seen The Slayers, never known Lina much,…blahblahblah. On the other hand, I’m a GONZO fan and ought to be supporting Rosette, have read the Chrno Crusade manga…

I’m going to put out this recording of a conversation…

Gourry speaking)

Rank: I will roll that D20. On a 1 thru 19, Rosette wins.
On a natural 20, Lina wins.
I’m not worried. Why? Because I roll motherf***ing 20s. And I do it EVERY TIME.
Srsly. Those of you that are voting for Rosette have either A: never seen Slayers, or B: are suffering from a momentary lapse of reason.

Rankendrake speaking)

Actually, I myself have never seen Slayers before…
I have read Chrno Crusade…
Why then, am I still supporting Lina?…
Because of a temporary lapse of reason…

Gourry speaking)

No, it is because YOU HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH, BRETHEREN!

Rankendrake speaking)

LOL, it must have blinded me or something…

See? Well, I think I finally have the answer. The reason why I vote for Lina is simple. I don’t like to lose. I voted for Lina the first time because I had no idea who to vote for. Gourry tampered with my mind then or something. Now that I’ve supported Lina all the way, I’d hate to get shot down right at this point. Quite a simple but elusive reason…
