Finally replaced my old boot drive with an SSD.

# old boot drive
Timing buffered disk reads: 242 MB in  3.02 seconds =  80.15 MB/sec

# Intel 530 SSD
Timing buffered disk reads: 1216 MB in  3.00 seconds = 404.80 MB/sec

I also set up UEFI booting, because it’s 2014 and there’s no excuse for using things like master boot records and BIOSes anymore.

A few weeks ago I added a new WD Red 3TB media drive. Even connected externally via eSATA and running at only 5400RPM, it was 50% faster than my boot drive:

# WD Red 3TB media drive
Timing buffered disk reads: 368 MB in  3.02 seconds = 122.04 MB/sec

Oh well, it does make for a nice scratch disk.

This fall on Linux, Mac and Windows PC for $49.99, Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth will take the strategy game beyond the confines of its home turf to an alien world that players will colonize and where they will forge a new future of humanity.

Oh man… I haven’t been this excited for a new game in a long time. I may spend the rest of the weekend playing Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri.

Spring 2014 Preview! | Random Curiosity

That’s it, I’m declaring anime bankruptcy. There are too many shows I’m too far behind on to catch up with now, and a whole new season in front of me.

Billboard for ViiV Healthcare in Shinjuku Ni-chome (pre-censorship)
Artwork by Poko Murata (村田ポコ)

In December 2013, gay artist Poko Murata was hired to make artwork for a billboard promoting HIV awareness in Tokyo’s gay neighborhood, Shinjuku Ni-chome (新宿二丁目). Now, the billboard has been censored by decree of the Shinjuku ward office, which asserted that Murata’s artwork runs contrary to “public order and morality” (公序良俗). Murata made a revised version of the image, seen above, which was also rejected by the government office because it contained “visible underwear.” Poko Murata rightly calls out the decision as gay discrimination on his blog, and one only needs to glimpse the motorized sex robot advertisements that float around Shinjuku to sense a double standard at play.

This is fantastic: four minutes of pilot animation for The Real Ghostbusters. I actually like some of the ideas in the original concept (movie-accurate jumpsuits and a Slimer who is not friendly) better than how things eventually ended up.

That much more Bill Murrayish character design for Peter looks so out of place and weird now, though.
