Atelier Totori fest

Time for another fest! And time for another canned email, stolen from
a previous year's posting, hoo!

If you do not wish to be sent more emails concerning Fest, please let me
know. Additionally, feel free to forward this to whoever you feel
appropriate (and have them email me to be added for follow-up emails.)

For anyone receiving this email/post that may not be familiar with the
concept, Fest is an event, started at the time of FF7, where we get a
bunch of people together with their TVs and game systems, and play
through a game together. The game this time is Atelier Totori.
Usually, we do very little else (but will occasionally go out to eat, or
do walks, or things like that)

What: Atelier Totori Fest!
Who : All of you! But, see a note below.
When: Setup will be on the evening of Saturday 1/7/12. After setup/dinner,
we will have some sort of gaming competition, to be determined. Fest will
start on Sunday 1/8/12, and we plan to allow people to play until
Saturday 1/14/12.
The game will probably be 30-50 hours long.
Where: Curtis, Anna, and Miles' house, Madison, WI.
Why: To play through a game together in good company, and listen to
Lucas talk about how FF13 is the worst designed game ever.

Fest demands that you have not played the game beforehand. it is more
fun if we are all discovering it together.

People generally commit to staying for the entire time. There will be
sleeping space, although there may be a limited number of
couches/beds/etc, so you may want to bring a sleeping bag, etc. We
will discuss more in detail what sorts of things you should expect to
bring in upcoming posts/emails

This email/post is basically to establish interest. Please
reply/comment if you are interested in attending or receiving
continued information, or if you have any questions. More detailed
posts will follow in the upcoming weeks.

Please forward this to anyone you believe would be interested. Note,
however, that we have a space limitation, and 8 slots are already taken, so
PLEASE if you are interested, reply early.

Cheers! -Eric

Well, thanks to tooth problems and my slackerness, I only got ~1200 sentences in, instead of 2000.

Goal for October: Either get a job, or write an SRS website. (And maintain the kanji/sentences)

5 1/2 months later, someone has beat my adventure top score in peggle on the PSN. By about 1%.

Do I care enough to go back and beat it again? ^_^;

I've upgraded my LJ style for the sole purpose of "disabling" crossposting to LJ and Facebook, although I'm pretty sure you can work around it by using your own style when viewing, or similar things.

That said, I ask people not to do so. I do not use Twitter or Facebook, and if I want to start posting things there again, I will do it myself. Please do not cross-post (especially friends-locked posts) elsewhere.

I'm aware it's the internet, and Ctrl-C Ctrl-V is easy, but I can request it anyway.

Thanks to viperfox for posting about it, and dydan for sharing a (at least partial) workaround.
