  1. Hello, I'm currently hoarding one piece releases in the hope of, some day, make a consistent and complete release myself. For now I have: [df68] 1 to 351 + movies 1 to 11 [sofcj] 1080p BDrips 579 to 743 (which I believe are the only BDrips available(???) ) So are there some other good releases around that I should grab? (I only care about video quality, so sub, dub or raw are all fine)
  2. I’m thinking of learning touch typing to improve my typing speed & accuracy, I have tried it a little but I find it very uncomfortable & difficult reaching certain keys with the correct fingers. Is this just because I’m starting out or does anyone else experience this? I’m 19 & currently use three fingers per hand to type, I subconsciously know where the keys are on my keyboard since I can somewhat type without looking (with errors). How long would it take to learn touch typing & break my current typing technique?
  3. Well, considering how depressing the advice threads in the Balamb Café are atm, I thought I'd ask a few more happier questions! Right, as most of you know, I moved to Australia about six months ago to attend uni. After moving I found it difficult to find any martial arts clubs for me to attend (which is very unfortunate considering Brisbane is a big uni town) as they all seemed to be the "bucks for belts" kinda crap that I have no respect for or any shred of interest in joining. But a few days back I discovered there is a group of like minded university students that are looking too set up a uni funded dojo for students and paying individuals. Now, what they needed was teachers, so I gladly offered my services to teach Shotokan karate (I'm 2nd Dan, so my sensei back home would kill me for even offering...lol) at least for a while and if demand is high. But I also informed them of my fencing background and interest in learning some other traditional sword styles. It seems this went down very well with the other guys setting the dojo up, as Brisbane has a huge nerdy community (massive gaming scene, lots of other groups dedicated to different sci fi and fantasy things, etc etc) which would obviously jump at the idea of a sword school. Here is the predicament. Considering I don't really know much Oriental sword styles (I know a little Jian Shu, some Iaido and a bit of Dao Shu) and I don't know what the laws are in importing swords in Aus, should I strive to go through with this? Should I just stick too what I know, like karate, fencing and other European sword styles? Or does all this sound like a bit of an ego stroking venture too you guys and think I'm getting in over my head? On a side note, this thread would be awesome to discuss some things that haven't really been discussed on the forum before as far as I can tell. for instance, what is your stance on teaching weapon based combat? How about unfederated dojos? Heck, which is your favourite type of sword (I know that most will probably say katana in all, but some might have others) and why? Also, if this is in the wrong section sorry!
  4. I've updated this because I no longer really need much advice anymore. Also, Mink and I have a slightly bigger budget now. Can't go bigger than what is on the updated list, because we want to put a good chunk into savings for emergencies...and we will be building this once we receive the money and then the parts once ordered, which will prolly be in about a month.

  5. Hello people of Kametsu! Been a long time hasn't it. Anyhoo, considering the sudden little jolt in the lit section's ass as of late, I decided to see if I could get a little advice/help on a story that quite literally came to me in a dream. I'm not even sure if this coherent at all. I mean, it was quite literally a case of me waking up and going "Holy fuck, that was an awesome dream! Wait. That would make an awesome story! Paper, fast!" before falling on my ass is a mess of covers and sheets while desperately trying not to forget the little details that made the dream awesome. But alas some of the details are gone, some are distorted and some are just down right weird. What I'm asking is a little help too see if this actually sounds any good, and if so, should I begin work on it? Please, be brutal here. Anything that sounds off, or what ever do tell me. It seems I'm rambling again, so here is some of the detail. At present, cause I couldn't remember there being any real plot other than what is stated in the setting section of what I managed to jot down. Setting: It was a post apocalyptic setting, with a ruined futuristic cityscape where massive skyscrapers have been blasted open and left to decay and the ground is scorched and dry. The Witch is found at the only green part of the whole city, near its centre and surrounded by circular and geometric garden fixtures. Her area is actually a large airship, as is revealed later (as it was revealed later on in the dream I mean, the actual design wasn’t really evident, but it seemed similar to Haven from Mortal Engines). The actual setting, backstory and the likes wasn’t touched upon in the dream, as it focused mostly on the Witch making contact with tribals in amongst the city and giving them an Elixir to remove disease and other things. But thats for later. The Witch: In the dream she seemed, cold, calculating yet oddly humorous and always sarcastic. She seemed to have a complicated with the other named character; Satan, jumping between an intense hatred to a jovial and almost romantic friendship. I can’t really remember what she looked like (other than she had black hair and was constantly covered in what appeared to be motor oil or axel grease, further alluded to when she mentions her “profession”) Her name isn’t actually the Witch as far as the dream went, and was actually the name the tribals had given her. She is the creator of the Elixir, or at least I believe she was, and only wanted to give it too 33 individuals; 12 males and 21 females, but after it is revealed that the “Liasons” have given it in a watered down form to most of the organised tribals she is revolted and warns of troubles to come. Wasn’t touched on in the dream as too what, but that will be easy to rectify myself. She seemed very intelligent and in control of her emotions, except in her interactions with Satan. She also had a fondness for orchestral music, and intially chose the “Tribe” due to their musical talents that she witnessed during dance/ritual they were performing. The Devil (Satan, is what I called him after waking up): Nothing much was touched upon in the dream. Other than his interactions with the Witch, he does not actually say much. He was often seen prancing about, almost as if doing ballet, while he was interacting with the Witch. He seems to have an intense love of food, specifically the food the Witch had in the marketplace onboard her airship. Where the food comes from isn’t touched upon however. He is seen in every interaction cooking a meal of some sort and has access to perfectly clean plates, silverware and proper dinner clothes, along with flowers despite no flowers being shown onboard the airship or elsewhere in the dream (notable exceptions being the Hippy-eque tribal group that the “Liasons” interact with later in the dream, who have daisies and other small flowers in their hair and houses). He was always in a white suit with a red rose on his lapel. He also is the only character to wear shoes (I didn’t see the Witch’s feet but I imagine she wear sandals or something similar) and is also seen cleaning and polishing them. I'll put more info when I'm finished decrpyting (the handwriting is atrocious, as too be expected when in a rush, in the morning and crumpled in pain from jamming your "jewels" into a chair leg... ) and translating it onto my computer. Does this seem interesting or am I just whacking out cause it was a dream? Do you guys and gals see any potential in this for development?
  6. So I met this girl the other night based on a friends advice ( he said we would be perfect for each other) this girl also works for my aunt. The other night I finally saw her and she was cute, and after much bravery on my part I managed to ask for her number. Just a bit of background on our ages, I am 22 she is 19. So I texted her this morning and we had a lil back and forth conversation, I learnt a little about her, then I asked her if she wanted to go to a movie, and she did not respond, so thinking I made her feel uncomfortable I sent another text saying sorry if I did. She did no respond to this one either but I sent a last one cause I wanted to be honest since I have been taking advice for friends, and asked her out for coffee, she responded saying that might be nice. I know I texted to much and it turns out she goes to the local collage so I know why she didn't responded for awhile. I asked if this following week would be good and she said she would have to check her schedule, after work tonight. I asked when she worked so I did not disturb her via texts tonight (Was that wrong to ask?) but I believe she works at 6 so she hasn't responded. I am asking for advice on this since this is my first time ever asking a girl for her number in person, my previous girlfriends I have asked out online and have known a few of them from high school so it wasn't hard to do, I do not want to screw this up and since it seems like I didn't yet I was hoping you fine people could help me out. (I wanted to post this new thread so i could get better info based on this situation)
