Windows 7

Apologies for the long inactivity, even if my Persona 4 post is the only one getting the attention. Meh, you get what you look for, and to be honest, not many people are looking for a blog with a review of a movie, or review of an anime. Afterall, we have got blogs such as Random Curiosity with daily reviews of anime episodes. We also have IMDb for movie ratings, so why come here to get that stuff? If you want some average quality posts from “normal people” then this blog might interest you. Soon I will do another “Welcome” post and redo the site, although after my last exam next Wednesday. Now, enough with my rant I shall give you what the title suggests. Not a download, a review.

Windows 7 is Microsofts latest development. Still in testing with RCs. It will be released sometime next year, with a possibility of it coming later this year. I, getting tired of my 64 bit XP system, thought I would try out 7, and see how it was. I installed it on my second hard drive, and I must say that I’m impressed.

Windows XP certainly has its stability, Vista has its faults, but Windows 7 has the potential to stable and reliable with features XP never heard of, and Vista was too faulty to handle. Windows 7 has more compatibilty with programs than my 64 bit system, and the full 7 hasn’t even been released yet. Personally, I think this OS is the next XP. Vista was abandoned, even though it was supposed to be far greater than XP, it proved wrong.

This is a screenshot of my current desktop.

What impresses me by 7 is the fact that you can change backgrounds with ease.  I have a Soul Eater theme with 4 different wallpapers circulating around every few minutes. For someone who changes their wallpaper frequently, this is a dream.

I like the graphics of the system. Nice, clearcut high quality.

I’m tired at the moment as it’s 4.39 am over here, so I will be drawing my conclusion here. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

So, Windows 7, Microsofts soon-to-be new money maker, looks very promising. Has a lot of protential and if compatible with other software, so installations are safe. WIndows RC candidates will be shut down on in 2010. I’d recommend downloading this, putting it on a pc or hard drive you care nothing about so you can make 7 the primary OS of an old PC.

Well it’s been fun reviewing, but I gotta go before I fall asleep at the PC. As I said, any questions then ask.

Chris out.

EDIT: Sorry for the small screenshots. I will fix them.

1 litre of tears..

Posted in J-drama, Recommendation with tags , , , , , on September 11, 2008 by fraymakesrevolution

….you’ll be crying at least that much =[

I decided to add a Recommendation to the blog’s ever expanding content…

I watched this Japanese drama well over a year ago.. and still whenever I hear ‘Only Human by K’ – I want to cry, now some may say that is strange but ‘1 Litre of tears’ is truly a touching show – the reason I decided to bring this series up now was because I recently watched the film version which was also fantastic.. so what is ‘1 Litre of tears’?

‘1 Litre of tears’ is based on the real-life struggles of Aya a 15-year-old girl who suffered from an incurable disease called spinocerebellar degeneration where the victim keeps their mental capacity but slowly begins to lose physical control of their body to the point where they cannot walk, write, talk or eat.

Aya lived life to the full until her death at the age of 25. This drama is based on the diary Aya kept writing until she could no longer hold a pen. The book that later followed entitled “One Litre of Tears” has sold over 1.1 million copies in Japan alone.

Aya’s only wish was “to live.” By carefully depicting Aya’s earnest desire to live, and the love of her family and friends the drama, “1 Litre of Tears” wishes to deliver her simple but strong message: “Just being alive is such a lovely and wonderful thing.”

I sat and watched the series in two days.. I done my share of crying too >_< I told several people about it straight away and everyone so far has enjoyed it and have even said it changes the way they feel about life and family.
The drama itself adds in new things to the story for example a romantic relationship, but overall I believe it managed to capture Aya’s message.. I strongly recommend this series to anyone and everyone.

If you have problems getting hold of the series let me know~!
