#1882: Anime stuff again

I watched the Spirit of Wonder shorts yesterday, and liked them.

One wasn't translated, for some reason. All three were about the core characters, though one had a cameo of the Scientific Boys Club in it. Miss China FTW.

Thanks to BakaBT, I now have the following waiting for inclusion in the playlist:

Excel Saga
Big O
Star Blazers season 3
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu--Purezza
Martian Successor Nadesico
You're Under Arrest! Full Throttle
Yume de Aetara

I've also got to make some sense out of the complete chaos that my anime library has become. It used to be that I had an organized list showing what I had, what had been watched, and what neede backup; but it's been more than a year since I even opened that file. It's a mess, and I've got to clean it up. *sigh*

Well, I'm still thinking about getting a NAS box; and if I do that, everything's going to get completely reorganized anyway.

Mom's UPS developed a sticky power switch. The computer began turning on and off at approximately random intervals, because the switch would intermittently stay in the depressed position. Mom would have to fiddle with the thing to get it to stay on; she got fed up and asked for a new UPS for Christmas. My sister got it for her; yesterday I installed it.

...and I took the old one and plugged the DSL modem and router into it. The switch is the only problem with the thing; everything else works fine. So I turned it on and gave it a whack to unstick the switch, and now a ten-second power failure won't necessitate waiting 5 minutes for the modem to reconnect. Win-win.

(Why couldn't Mom just give it a whack? She bruises very easily.)
