IBNeko's Journal-Nyo~!
And so it turned out to be a bug. The not-able-to-add-interests-to-my-userinfo thing from... a few posts ago.


Yep~ Yay, I found a bug~

In other news today, I spent the whole day shopping. o.O And now have one (1) mountain of stuff that I'm bringing. Whadahey? o.O I don't want to drag so much to college...... do I?

Granted, a few of those items (well, 30-40% of the mountain) be empty boxes for carrying stuff...

...I still need to add clothes to that pile. Ugh.

Need to move my files from my computer to the laptop. Need to back up better anime series that I want to share. Need to teach sister how to use bittorrent (or see if I can run it remotely) so I can continue to get episodes without the evil limit of university bandwidth restrictions (and general lack of bittorrent port access there).

Current Mood: silly silly

Laptop, plushies, clothes. ^_^

Need to move my files from my computer to the laptop.

Or buy an external casing for the drive currently inside the desktop. ^_^ But you've got a DVD-R inside one or both systems, ne? That should make the process a fair bit quicker.. and of course, there's always an internal solution too, with laptop drives at 80GB+. But cheaper would be something external - and then you could just do a straight copy of whatever you wanted. And 3.5" large capacity drives are ever more affordable.. !

Remote BT.. hm. If you could work out how to get VNC over some secure connection working, that might be an option, though you'd obviously still be reliant on whatever outbound bandwidth your current connection has, for fetching the files. (Is DCC similarly affected at the salt mine?) 'Course, it's also possible to run a command line version of BT, but I've never tried actually using it that way.

Oh, did you catch Sweet Valerians recently? The first ep's basically an overview - the second is the first real episode. All too brief, but very, very cute. ^_^

I'd do that, but then I'd have to carry around hard drives, and that's a bother. And it'd cost money and stuff.

VNC.... maybe. Never tried that... know of any newbie tutorials for setting up VNC? Or X11? o.O if I could figure that out, I'd have access to a graphical UI... Might need to reinstall a window manager though.

Sweet Valerians? Mmmm, have a quick link? I don't see it on animesuki... (at a brief glance anyways...)

True, less Stuff is better. But, 3.5" drives can be had for silly prices, in comparison to 2.5" units.. the largest being, what, 250GB? And not even that hideously costly, considering. But yes, I think I'd prefer purely internal, just from a simplicity standpoint - nothing more to worry about connecting or losing. And with laptop drives at their current sizes, they still can fit plenty of episodes, or several movies, and a few bagfuls of tunes without blinking, with CD-Rs or DVD-Rs taking up the slack for a trifling cost.

Plain VNC - without any encryption - is trivial. ^_^ Just run OSXvnc on the system you want to control, and something like Chicken of the VNC (yes, yes :) on the client side, and you're done.. it's just a matter of setting the password in both apps, and you're done. Frankly, you could probably just set the server firewall to only accept port 5900 connections from your IP (range), and you'd be okay - I've never seen any VNC attempts here, and only a couple SSH ones. It's surprising how well it works, even over 10Base-T.. it's far from a local video connection, but quite acceptable. It might be rather stickier over DSL, of course.

Sweet Valerian? Oh, certainly: just check here for the current two torrents. They're quite small, as they're only a couple minutes each, as with Nanami-chan (another one to look into, if you're in need of more cuteness).

You might have told me this already, but are you driving or flying to college?

Driving, for the first trip. Will probably come back for thanksgiving break via plane...
