bought the Creative Zen Vision: M, 30GB.

  plays music, videos and photos.  plays alot of the format that i use, such as wma, mp3, avi, divx, xvid, etc.  that iPod video doesn't play.  this is actually for my dad for Father's day.  i'm planning to buy a 60 GB for myself.

^ I've been wanting to get one of those for quite a while (ever since ebc first mentioned the one he got last year). So tempting.  I'm supposed to go on a roadtrip with some friends at the end of the month too, and since my taste in music differs from theirs (just a tad :P), this would be quite handy to have.

JPH!P :heart:'s Fushigidane, ChrNo, Jab & marimari. Always.

Not really geeky/nerdy, but didn't know where else to post...
And hey, it does come with an IC chip, so that's gotta count for something..


PiTaPa - English Wiki
www.pitapa.com

No more transportation ticket machines for this guy.. :D

Instead, they'll just take the money out of my bank account..

(I don't have a monthly/.../yearly pass from home to work like most people, since I work all over the place...4 prefectures a week)

damn, 4 pref a week?

my cellphone has JR suica (and just my luck they extended it for use on the metro too!) so every time i was in tokyo i used my cellphone to beep in and out of the subway/train gates. :) but unfortunately that's only for tokyo area, and PiTaPa doesn't (yet) work for most cellphones. ironically, if you have a standard suica IC card, you can transfer the balance to PiTaPa...

It's borderline 4.. I work in Nara (where I live), Mie, Hyogo and in a place which is between Nara & Kyoto..

My keitai has an IC chip too, but I've never used it, cause I just didn't see the point.. (last time I was in Tokyo, my keitai didn't even have a colour display..)

Sister-in-law's new Vaio has a built-in IC card reader.. Just know she's going to do some serious internet shopping with that..

This week I accidentally won a bid on some speakers on an online auction. I really wasn't expecting to win cause the bid was only $189 for these really nice looking speakers that usually go for over $1000. But anyway no one else bid on the ones I had (there was like 5 other sets of the same speakers)
and so I ended up winning the bid. Anyway shipping was $135 cause the damn things were 80kg lol. here they are



They are actually 6.1, there is another one the same as the center that is used for the rear. But I just left it in the box cause I can't drive it yet anyway.
The sub is powered so it runs straight from the output on the soundcard (it can run off an amp as well) But I only have an old stereo amp so I am only running the towers atm. But it sounds really really nice. I just have to save up a bit of cash and get a decent 5.1 or 6.1 amp.
*just ignore my ghetto projector screen, I'm waiting for a proper one to come next week

okidoki my home theatre is just about complete (all i need is a 5.1 amp)
Today I got a proper screen : D

Here's some Biyuden


And some Farcry


The projector is Panasonic ae700 (1280x720 native)
I've had it for awhile now and there's newer models out but it's a really good projector

Nice one Yui-chan

Me jealous too....

How much is a replacement bulb cost? Maybe 1k USD ? 2000 hours sounds like a lot but you really chalk up the hours on games u know?

Bulbs are $650 aus
I actually don't use it as much as I could. I don't play games on it that was just a one off thing to see how it would look.
It's really just for movies maybe once a week.

Added this baby to replace an Iiyama VisonMaster Pro 413 17" monitor:



An LG M228WA 22" Monitor with built in TV Tuner. HD TV with DVI (rather than HDMI).

It has also all of the inputs you could ever want, makes PS2 games look great via components.
