Finally managed to re-install egroupware (best free groupware i found so far :) - although i'd prefer it to be written in python instead of php but hey it works :D ) on my server (not a technical problem but a time one ;))
just got a few issues with the email app (felamimail) now.. (one solved by Ralf Becker within like half an hour - use 2nd email address as 2nd sender identity :D) the other one being with signatures not saving the default and therefore not choosing the correct signature :(. attaching a pic here as i don't want to email an image to the mailinglist (sorry for the boring pic hehe)
Haven't written much lately due to move back to Austria (driving from .uk to .at sucks - and i did the whole thing 4 times already - will be 5 most likely *cry*).
anyway will try to write some real entries again soon :D
Amecon 2007 is over now. I'll put some sort of review later and maybe some photos as well(yes i know i promised that for Animagic photos as well but I didn't have time yet).
We went home early yesterday from AmeCon and went to my parents in law where we tried out a 'new' japanese naruto fighting game (which we got from the bring & buy) on our japanese gamecube - good fun, but lots less characters than the newer ones. Unfortunately we mixed up which one we already had and didn't buy volume 2 of the game :(
so we played that for like 1 hour or so... ;)
Then we played Pangaya for 3 hours!!!! (until like 21:30 lol)
Today we gave the ferrets another bath which was 'fun' ... again one of them couldn't resist going to the loo while we washed him :( - but they seem to feel better now too :)
We also played the new japanese Naruto Wii Game at Amecon.
In Glasgow for work today. will update this later/tomorrow. ;)
watch this space for updates hehe
[Update] I will write more - promise ;)
Took a bit longer than I thought ... anyway a bit of new content now :D (below this line if you go to the full view :))
Animagic 2007 was great fun (even though we noticed nearly at the airport that we had forgotten our confirmation cards for the Convention at home and had to ask my parents in law to send them using DHL... cost us GBP 65 - in the end we got in before we got the cards but they arrived later friday anyway which i guess is good, although it was expensive...)
The opening ceremony was great fun, though at the end we got Miyavi playing ... that was like the low of the whole convention for me as I personally don't like him and his music even a little bit ;)
As usual some items at the auction sold for up to around EUR 300 LOL
Spent some money in the dealer room but not too much this time comparably I guess. Though spent quite a bit in the Bring&Buy (also sold stuff for EUR 80 yay!)
On Saturday the Plastik Tree Concert was quite good (not my favorite, but quite good so we bought their latest CD - the japanese import LOL) unfortunately the J-Rock / J-Pop discothek wasn't very good so we didn't stay much longer after the concert (maybe it got better later, but it didn't start very good ..)
The show acts were good as usual and the Cosplay was good fun (compared to this what you get at uk convention Cosplay events it is like 200 times better :) ) unfortunately I had to miss a large part of the Group Cosplay as I had to pick up the Bring&Buy stuff.
One of the best things for me was the Final Fan-tasy Real Movie (there are trailers and episodes with english subs on the webpage as well)
I was a bit tired when I got back on Monday at around 20:00 or so, and we still had to pick up the pets as I had to leave at 05:00 the next morning to go to the airport to catch a flight to Glasgow for work..
Rain again today.. unfortunately I had to go to the office today. No rain on the way down, but a couple of flooded (low) fields near rivers on the way. Pouring it down now, but I hope it won't be too much of an issue on my way home.
Also i hope there'll be no issues with our flight to germany tomorrow, the flight back and the flight i gotta take to glasgow (and back) next tuesday for work :(
On a brighter note on the 2nd August We'll go to the Dir En Grey concert in london :D looking forward to that hehe
