Winter Break~

Image
So with this semester over for some of us, and a little bragging rights for others - I had a 4.0 semester! - we would like to wish everyone happy holidays (if you celebrate and if not then happy annoying crowds) and hope that this coming year is even more wonderful than the last.

As far as projects go, I know I've been super-slow and I'm sorry about that, but real life does come first. But since we do have a break right now you should see a slight increase in releases. BUT! If you would like to see a HUGE increase then you should think about joining (translators/editors/cleaners) even if it's just for this holiday break.

But anyway for today's goodies~

So I found this neat little conversation over at MU the other day. The conversation itself has been beat to death by a ton of people, but the way the original poster posted about it was so incredibly cute that I wanted to share. (Originally posted at Manga Updates by mizunosaki)


And then this is how she/he explains how manga reader sites are not okay~


See? Cuteness. XD

Anywho, as always we need translators and editors. Thank you thank you to everyone that has applied so far! =D

2. Piece volume 02 chapter 04 - A chapter all about buses!

So even if you want to translate just one chapter (chapters of Piece are about 80-100 pages) then please contact!

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Not a lot to talk about today (about to start making myself up and then the kids for tonight's festivities.) But I hope everyone stays safe and has lots of fun tonight!

Just a quick couple of announcements:

1. We have a chapter of Piece ready, I just didn't have time to complete it for tonight's release. So you can expect it hopefully by this weekend.

2. We have some new staff - I'll introduce them to you next time. (Although we do love you and appreciate you, I'm just in a hurry.)

3. I will update the reader and site later (not today)

4. WE NEED MORE STAFF!!! (Especially translators and experienced editors/qcers)

I'm not crying...

In case you have been wondering where we've been the past few weeks, I'm back in school. *crowd cheers* But on the flip side, I am taking Anatomy and Physiology this semester. Which to those of you who have never taken this devil class, it is one that just a glance at the book sitting on my floor makes me curl up in the fetal position crying and holding my teddy. And I am NOT talking cute quiet tears that shake my shoulders - oh no - I mean BIG FAT uncontrollable waves of sobs that penetrates the walls and causes all of my neighbors to believe that someone is actually dying in my home. So in case you are wondering where I am - I'm busy.

Questions you may be having by this point:

What is this frackin password? We've had several of our loyal and awesome fans email/comment about how much they wanted the password system back in place because they actually enjoy the hunt. Many told us that they would gladly shower us with cupcakes if we brought it back. So while I can't…

A Dream Come...True?

Image
Whew! This past month has been hectic and wonderful. Here in a few weeks my babies are all going to be starting school. I can't believe my eldest is starting kindergarten! Time flies far too fast.

So, the last night I had a fantastic dream in which I was at a masquerade ball. It's always been a personal dream of mine to go to a ball and dance the night away.

Anyway, I was standing at the top of stairs (like so many teen dramas) sparkling as some mystery hand takes the shawl that is covering my beautiful dress up. The spotlight turns on to me and I shield my eyes from the sudden shock of the bright light. As my eyes adjust I look down and all eyes are on me and my fabulous costume. I spot my date across the room and give a small smile and wave, when suddenly the Star Wars Throne Room song plays.

Wha?!
I think to myself this can't be right and as I look down trying to figure out why this strange music would be playing for my dream entrance to a ball; when I realize that I…

Happy 4 years and my point is... elephants are cute too!

Image
I never knew elephants can be so cute. I don't like animals that are larger than me, So I'll never go near an elephant. However, when I saw an elephant in the drama that I was watching last night, I just couldn't help thinking how adorable it was when it came to the rescue of it's owner. The cuties part EVER is when the elephant was walking and nibbling on a huge leaf (don't know what kind of leaf it was but it was huge o-o..).

1. Nounai Poison Berry volume 01 chapter 01 - This is a story about girl who (like most of us) over-thinks every aspect of her life. But instead of just internal monologue it's played out by an actual committee who discuss and wager on everything she does. Personally I have a Hatoko and a Ikeda going back and forth the majority of the time. How about you? What do your voices say? ;)


If you are an uploader and are currently reading this message, please I beg of you, just don't upload. Just think every time you break the rules urdzy has to spend editing time enforcing rules, so please think of urdzy. Also, just in case some of you are having trouble locating the pass today here's a tiny hint - its four letters (all capitalized) with an exclamation point at the end. So, _ _ _ _ ! Good luck!

You'll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.

Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

The other day I was reading this neat little story about a man who had his computer stolen from him *not the neat part*, but he had put an app on it that allowed him to access his camera from other devices. He used this to take photos of the man who had taken his laptop and helped to lead the police to the thief.

After reading this story most people would feel a sense of congratulations toward the young man for being prepared. Or they might even go out and buy this app so that they too can be prepared.

Is this how I react?
Do you know me at all???

Of course the more reasonable thing would have been to feel happiness for the guy and maybe get the app as well. But me, what do I do - I find painter's tape and cover the camera on every device that has an internet connection + camera.

My Computer - check.
Hubby's Computer - check.
My IPhone - check.
Hubby's IPhone - check.
IPad - check.
And just for good measure:
Kinect - check.

Who does this?!
