Re: Official "Hello/Goodbye" Thread!

I'll take a look at Japanese. Maybe a language that doesn't use the latin alphabet will pique my interest It's way more than that, though -- Japanese grammar is almost entirely unlike anything speakers of IndoEuropean languages recognise. Pronouns, inflection for number, the notions of temporal inf...

Re: Announcement regarding recent forum changes

Unfortunately our current PhPBB iteration doesn't parse HTML I was tackling the diagnosis from the other end, by tinkering with the front page as rendered, using browser development tools (so all at the HTML level, and my machine only), rather than playing with the actual forum BBCode, trying to se...

Re: Announcement regarding recent forum changes

There's some kind of error or bug in the BBCode parsing of underlined text That one's weird. There's not even any odd CSS rules that could possibly apply -- and live-editing the front page locally to insert the expected mark-up <span style="text-decoration: underline">underlined text</spa...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Tezuka's Firebird 2772 is everything Dr. Nick said it was (even if the subtitles I found were too embarrassed to give the Chief of Science's full name), only with way more by way of interludes that wanted to be in Disney's Fantasia when they grew up than I had expected. And less explanation of how B...

Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II

I'm honestly baffled at how much hate Tomino is getting here, as if the anti war theme of all the Gundams he made is in any way difficult to understand. The intent is clear enough, because of the great amounts of "tell, not show" typically going on -- it's the execution that people are ar...

Re: What do you think Asuka has a degree IN?

I'm guessing that the Euro forces of NTE seem to be fine with using child prodigies and making them officers/secret agents. If someone is one of the (few, and generally not interchangeable) people who can use an existing and necessary weapon of mass destruction, giving them a brevet rank to place t...

Re: What do you think Asuka has a degree IN?

I don't think it is ever mentioned. It isn't. My guess would be mathematics, as that is the easiest one to power through on raw ability at an early age, and would also tend to pick up things like physics in the background (even if thermal expansion was something we covered when I was about 11-12), ...

Re: Alternative End of Evangelion

I wrote an alternative, happier ending. That was my immediate reaction after first watching EoE, too. It's quite normal to need a fix-fic, after all that. BTW there's no need to go to watermarking register-ware to create PDFs in this day and age, when there are perfectly legitimate solutions to the...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

G Reco in my opinion isn't bad as much as it is utterly... pointless. So much of it just doesn't go anywhere. I quite agree. It was a "tour of the balloon factories" only with an obligatory robot fight every episode that meant we didn't even get to see much by way of the attractions on th...
