News & Updates for February 2003

Mai Shiranui (Fatal Fury)

Added the anime profiles for Serial Experiments Lain and Excel Saga, and the character profiles for Akari Unryuu (from Ranma 1/2), Naraku, Shippo, and Sesshoumaru (all from InuYasha), Yukina (from Yu Yu Hakusho), Mr. Dickinson and Grandpa Granger (both from Beyblade), Hyatt (from Excel Saga), and Ruri Hoshino (from Martian Successor Nadesico).

I redesigned the look of the site slightly. I gave a new look to the title bar, put the option to have rounded corners on the windows, used lines to separate list items on the Profile Index and Anime on TV pages. Also, Opera users will notice fixes for table borders that used to be missing.

No new profiles (at least that I can remember), but made a lot of corrections.

Been busy these last two weeks. We had to send our TiVo back for an exchange. Fortunately they have the ability to send a replacement TiVo before requiring the broken one to be sent back. Unfortunately, they didn't offer us that option. And when I asked for it, they said that a regular exchange was already entered into the computer and that they couldn't change it. No matter what. They talked to two managers, and they said that they could not change it. Absolutely impossible. If terrorists were to have taken over the building and threatened to blow it up unless the exchange type was changed, many innocent people would be dead now. Anyway, we got our new TiVo and it seems to be working fine.

I also hooked up our TiVo and DVD players in such a way so that we could watch them from the bedroom. The hard part was running the coaxial wire from our living room, through the attic, and out to our bedroom. The expensive part came at Radio Shack, where I picked up an RF modulator (to convert the RCA plugs to coaxial), remote control extender, and a remote controlled A/V selector. But now everything's hooked up, and seems to work pretty good. We can watch any disc in our 300 disc DVD player, any disc in our five disc player, or anything on TiVo. Unfortunately, the remote A/V selector doesn't work very well when put behind the glass of the stereo cabinet. Hopefully I'll be able to get a better one later.
