Chuang Yi Bazaar ’07

26 11 2007

Headed over to the Bazaar yesterday with armed with more than two hundred dollars, and all I have left now is $42.20.

I R NOT FREELOADER, ODEX. I R JUST CHEAPO.

I had a hard time navigating the area though, since I haven’t been to Bukit Merah in around five years or so, the last time being to visit the library there for a much coveted book(at that time).

Anyway, on with the list of purchases.

Odex is aiming for overseas anime downloaders.

The earlier incident of an United States citizen getting an e-mail from Odex wasn’t a coincidence.

Warning E-mails to downloaders in the U.S from Odex

19 11 2007

Odex is now sending warning e-mails to people in the U.S, from this thread on AnimeonDVD.

Paranoia is not unwarranted?

The e-mails are sent from a [company]@copyright-compliance.com domain, which, from the Whois Information(publicly accessible information), is a domain registered by BayTSP Inc.

If you reply, you’re probably an idiot, because Odex just wants your information. Sending e-mails through your ISP without knowing infringer details sounds good and all, but when you reply to the e-mail and NRIC you’ve already fallen into the trap.

It should be a rather enjoyable week for the anti-Odex crowd, because Singapore laws don’t stick in the US, and this just proves to be one more shot to the foot, from another continent.





The last week in action.

Life

  • I now have a fondness for bowling, and the cheapest alley I can find is around $2.20 for a game, which isn’t too expensive. Now to get my 300 score!
  • Bee Movie was a fun ride, and all the bee related puns were great. The middle of the movie, the court trial was rather fun. But if you take it seriously with a somewhat deeper view(it’s not very deep, all the same) the movie could be lambasting the current status of US law courts where you can get sued for anything. I want my $65,000,000 pinstriped pants now!
  • That one guy in the Straits Times writing about his trip to Japan cracked me up with the Meido Cafe experience. I never knew there were Imouya(Imouto Cafes).
  • I’d rather not work during the holidays and survive on my inheritance alone. But I am thinking of writing a few more articles to sell. online of course, I want to break my former record of not going out for two months the last holiday)

Animu and Manga

  • Still waiting for the Strawberry line of manga/light novels to come out proper before I head to Ani-Play.
  • Still watching Shugo Chara and YUA: FT, reviews won’t be coming out any more.
  • DrmChsr0’s posts are rather amusing and thought-provoking. I might not be watching fansubs because of him. o.0
  • Thinking of buying Saiyuki completed DVD($40+ for 1300 minutes worth of episodes), or Kannazuki no Miko boxset(significantly more expensive at $54 for all..16? episodes).
  • Onemanga is pissing me off being rerouting pages of Claymore into some random love story manga. and WTF Galatea is really blind?!!?!

Alright, I’m done with this summary. See you around.





Paypal Fraudulent E-mails

17 11 2007

I checked my inbox, cleared up some spam and received a scam letter. Now, I regularly get legitimate e-mails from Paypal, so I don’t really think twice about clicking on the links inside.

This time, it was different.

The first glimpse of My Otome 0 – S.ifr ?

10 11 2007

Got to CDJapan, and as always, the first thing I searched was My Hime.

Got the usual hits on the Mai Hime characters albums, but what was surprising was that they actually had My Otome 0/S.ifr out for pre-order!

Details and picture under the cut.
