Nothing really new, except the layout. Started on chapter 9 of Basilis, and was finally able to buy volume 4 of the series. ^^ Great fun.
The second part of chapter 8 of Basilis is out and available for download on the manga page. This is also the end of the second volume (and the halfway point of the series).
I do a lot of work on my desktop, trying to set scan mangas for all the fans out there and whatnot. This is more of a personal update type thing and I wanted to test out a my writing. I have used a couple of the desktops here, but not all of them. It would get too expensive otherwise. Anyway, here’s my article on the best desktops for work, which help me increase productivity to do scanslations for everyone!
Technology has truly engulfed us all. It has become such an integral part of our life that it is hard to imagine our daily routine without it. One such technology is computers which are now being extensively used for both personal and business work.
It is crucial to equip yourself with some of the best desktops for work since you don’t want to more spend time dealing with a low-quality desktop than actually getting the job done. For those of you who are on the lookout for desktops for business purposes, here are a few options you can try.
Apple iMac 27-Inch with Retina 5K Display
Apple is known for producing quality products, and its iMac with Retina Display succeeds in upholding this legacy. This 27-inch desktop is big enough to provide you with a comfortable viewing experience. It is equipped with an i5-4560 processor with a speed of 3.3 GHz. This speed is high enough to get the job done, while the 1 TB storage capacity provides you with enough space to store all your work files on the computer.
Dell OptiPlex 700 Series All-in-One
This product comes with an i5-6600 processor which is known in the market for its quality and superior performance. It comes as no surprise that this desktop also manages to satisfy the masses with its 3.3 GHz speed and 8 GB RAM. It uses the Windows 10 Pro as its operating system and features a screen with a size of 23.8 inches. While this is smaller than iMac’s 27-inch desktop, it is still big enough to allow for a comfortable user experience.
Lenovo ThinkCentre X1
For those of you who feel like that they don’t need the high-speed processor like the ones included in the products mentioned above, you might find Lenovo to be a suitable choice. This product features a processor speed of 2.3 GHz and a RAM of 8 GB. The processor included is the i5-6200 U, which surprisingly competes with some of even the best AMD CPUs. The storage capacity of the product is quite low, which may be a deterring factor.
Among the three options, Apple iMac serves to be the best desktop for work. This is because it offers an enhanced storage and speed at a reasonable price which makes it a likely choice of the masses.
Regardless of which business computer you end up choosing, make sure you pick a product which manages to offer you all the desired features. Don’t compromise on quality since it will affect your work.
Uploaded chapter 7 of Basilis (which had been released a good while ago) and the first half of chapter 8 as well. The files are available on the manga page.
Also made some new wallpapers. There’s a DNAngel one that I’m particularly happy with on the anime wallpapers page, as well as an Underworld one with Kate Beckinsdale and two versions of a picture I took in Helsinki on the random wallpapers page.
And in response to a question I received a good while back (^^;), I have not and probably will not be scanslating the first two volumes of Time Stranger Kyoko. Partially because Endless Dimension is doing them, and partially because I just don’t have the time between being a full-time college student and holding down a job – I’d rather work on Basilis than step on ED’s toes.
Basilis chapter 6 has been released and is available for direct download from the manga page.
The Daughter of Basilis project with AtlantisDream has turned into a joint project (as of chapter 6) and will therefore be hosted on this site (on the manga page) and possibly the AD site as well. ^^ Great fun. 🙂
Am changing the main update window to a blogger (to make it easier to update). Still needs tweaking though. If you get caught in the whole frame-within-frame thing, just click on the links on the outermost left to get the normal windows back. Must tweak!
Finally finished volume 3 of Time Stranger Kyoko! All that was missing was a Chokola side story, and it’s available here. Sorry it took so long. ^^; I considered doing volume 2 as well (and working backwards), but I think I’ll stick to scanslating Chiho Saito’s Daughter of Basilis for AtlantisDream.
Finally updated! ^^ Have a new layout design featuring kitties off of an envelope a friend sent me that I scanned. Tweaked the navigation a bit (everything should be accessable from the links on the left – which look kind of funky but I can’t figure out why they won’t stay at the top…) and overhauled the html (yay for style sheets!). Also uploaded 5 new anime wallpapers (2 Record of Lodoss Wars, 1 Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, 2 random CGs).
