yay! canadian orders!

"Yay, Canada~!"

Monday - October 11, 2004

[Piro] - 14:47:00 - [link here]

UPDATE: Ok, it just figures. We open up sales to Canada, with PayPal being the only option to pay by and... PayPal goes effectively offline. (grumblegruble) If you tried to order but were unable to because of the problems with PayPal, please let us know. :( We'll let you know when things seem to be working again. (sigh)

------

Or was that "Blame Candada?" I forget. ^^;;

I'm workin on a rant for today (i swear, i'm gonna get a rant out of my head if i have to use a blunt object to smash it out) but one thing i did want to do was let our Canadian readers know that we are no longer discriminating against you - the Megagear store is now accepting Canadian orders! Before you order, please make sure you read the shipping policy, and also be aware that we can't accept credit card from non-US banks, so if you want MT stuff, you'll have to use PayPal. rawr. :)

What about shipping to the rest of the world? We're workin on it, and this is the first step. I'll go into some more detail about that later. For now, you Canadian folx can go get stuff. Only if you want to, of course.

If you have any problems ordering, be sure to email me, i'll take care of you. :P

(hold off on the Capture the Bear shirts... there are some problems with this bactch - gomen!)

Oop ack!

"Voting blues"

Monday - October 11, 2004

edit 10/12/04: Thanks to all those who gave me contact information for my formerly local registrar of voters, I have all the info I need. Woo! I can gets me a stickaaaaaa~

So it's the 11th already, just a few weeks until election day 2004 here in the states, and I haven't received my voter pamphlet in the mail yet. Which means that I'm not sure if my Change of Address form actually fixed the address on my voter registration or not--does anyone know if I can check where my current polling location is, and if it's not too late to change if the electoral process still thinks I live in Berkeley?

Even though my state traditionally votes overwhelmingly Democrat, I still feel an overwhelming need to vote--my parents went through far too much on their way to America for me to shirk the right to have a voice, however small, in politics. So, whoever e-mails me first, thank you.

Oh, and RIP Christopher Reeve, who once made us believe that a man could fly, and spent the later years of himself convincing us that a man could walk.

October 12, 2004
So I had a restful holiday yesterday, which consisted of finally beating the last Duel Savior scenario (which sure was stupid... after 5 cool stories, the last one was just dumb) and recuperating from an exhausting weekend. Back to "work"!

Aselia the Eternal
For those Nippon Ichi fans out there, they've put up more information on their upcoming Eien no Aselia game. A pretty standard "one guy, lots of girls" adventure game with RPG elements, combat parties are made up of an Attacker, a Defender, and a Support character.

I'm kind of disturbed, though, the Game system page says that after choosing your party members, you don't actually control them in combat. Which just seems boring to me. I've never been a fan of non-interactive games--which is why I don't play very many visual novels, for example--and Aselia looks like it might shape up to be that kind of game. Oh well.

Edit: Okay, I've just been reminded that Eien no Aselia was once an H game that I saw for about 2 minutes before we all decided the game was boring and stupid. I KNEW I'd seen it somewhere before, but just brushed it off as having seen Nippon 1 stuff... but nope! They're taking a bad H game and putting it on the PS2 minus porn.

"Nine Breaker"?
For all you mech fans out there, From Software has released a demo movie full of crunchy goodness for you guys to enjoy. The music's pretty bad, but at least you get to see robots running around and blowing each other up, which, really, is what life is all about.
