Naruto’s 10th ending song lyrics

風が吹いて 痛い 消えない思い
何を持っていこうか 集めて一つ
二度とない 二度とない 捨てるなんて馬鹿みたい
無邪気になって イメージ
As the wind blows, these painful memories won’t disappear.
What were you thinking as you collected the old songs into one?
There is no second chance. There is no second chance. I know how foolish I look
The image of becoming innocent

きっとそれは終わらない
きっとそれは終わらない
This definitely isn’t over
This definitely isn’t over

愛の胸 焦がせ 線の夢 渡れ
縦横無尽 駆けて 手に掴む世界
雲がちぎれて 日がまた落ちて
ひとりのパレードが 動きだす
The flaming sight of my passion crossing a thousand dreams
passing over the inhuman beasts I seize the world in my hands
The clouds scatter, and the sun sets again.
This one-man parade starts to move

母権 基地術 審判 上昇 明暗 遭遇 生命 相愛
Adventure, Lucky Days, Trials, Climbing, Light and Darkness, Encounters, Life, Mutual Love

もしも言ってしまうなら あなたの髪を
嗅いで 吸って もっと 寄せ合う言葉
ワカラナイ ワカラナイ うわべだけじゃわからない
だからもっと深くしたい したい
なんて夢みたい
なんて夢みたい
愛の胸 焦がせ 千の夢 渡れ
縦横無尽 駆けて 巡り逢う奇跡
雲がちぎれて 日がまた落ちて
ふたつのパレードが夜空に溶けて
誰もが持っている ポケットに沈めた夜がある
そいつを灯すように 手を伸ばしては泳ぐ人
見つけられたならいい あなたの景色と同じもの
愛の胸 焦がせ 千の夢 渡れ
縦横無尽 駆けて 手に掴む世界
雲がちぎれて 日がまた落ちて
未完成のパレードでどこまでも
冒険 吉日 心拍 上昇 明暗 遭遇 生命 相愛

Colours/colors and codecs

After installing the latest K-Lite Codec pack and NVIDIA drivers I found that some video files had weird colours.

After some futzing around I found the issue.

Go to the NVIDIA tray icon, select color correction, at ‘Apply color changes to’ select ‘All’. Then at ‘Color profile’ select ‘Advanced mode’ and then ‘Restore Defaults’, select ‘Apply’. This fixed my colour problem. Apparently the new NVIDIA drivers/control panel do something with the gamma, which isn’t shown in the panel.

Caused me a few days of head breaking, especially since it only was for some codecs/applications.

Why do people risk their lives for others?

From Uzumaki Naruto (うずまきナルト):

Uzumaki Naruto: “Iruka-sensei (うみのイルカ), why do people risk their lives for others?”

Iruka-sensei: “When someone dies, they disappear. Their past and present, along with their future. A lot of people die on missions and in wars, surprisingly quickly and easily. Hayate (月光ハヤテ) was one of them. The one who dies has his own dreams, but there are people who are treasured like those dreams. Parents, siblings, friends, and lovers, people who are important… They all believe in and help each other. People who were there since birth took care of them… And those bonds grow even stronger as time passes. It’s not just a saying. It will be so for the ones who are connected, because it is precious.”

Metal Hunter/鋼のハンター

Finally finished watching 鋼の錬金術師/Hagane no Renkinjitsushi (Full Metal Alchemist) as well as ハンター X ハンター/Hunter X Hunter.

Hunter X Hunter was very nice to watch, and you cannot help but being dragged in along with Gon and support him. But I found that the finale of the series left too much open ends.
So what happens with Hisoka? He was constantly hinting how he would love to test his strength against both Killua and Gon when they ‘ripened’ some more. Also, Ging has been hiding in the forest on whale island all along? Because that is where Killua and Gon end up after using the ‘Accompany’ spell card. I wonder about this since you see Mito looking at the path they trace with ‘Accompany’ and she smiles as if she recognises it.
And what about Kurapica and the eyes of his tribe?
Leorio also got put to the background half way during the series and that for someone Gon met in the first or second episode!

Full Metal Alchemist was a bizarre series, but I liked almost every episode of it. Especially the ending where Edward ends up in post World War I Germany and Alphonse is restored to his 10 year old body. And here I was seeing Ed end up with either Roze or Winry. Very well drawn and a lots of jokes and emotions.

Gaara – 我愛羅

Of course, some people might recognise the title. Sabaku no Gaara (砂瀑の我愛羅) being a character from the anime series. The name means: Gaara of the Desert. The name Gaara (我愛羅) itself is a combination of: ga-a(i)-ra, meaning: I, love, demon. In general you could read it as: “I love myself, I am a demon.”

The kanji ‘ai':

For some reason I love this Kanji. Consists of 13 strokes.

DragonFly is pushing along nicely, Emiel a.k.a. coolvibe has managed to get into contact with the NVIDIA guys and is now even getting prerelease drivers! Way cool. Thanks to all the people supporting DragonFly in any way, your enthousiasm is what keeps us moving along.

One of my plans for DragonFly’s support is bootable images for ISO 9660 and diskettes which do various reporting on BIOSes and the like. This should provide clues into the wonderful world of whacked implementations.

I also started work on the bdb (BSD-licensed debugger) in order to support my own work as well as DragonFly.

Beware of the fury of the patient man…

Some of these days just start whacked.

Manager asks me to overlook a CV of the guy who’s going to replace me. Sure, no problem. So I find the guy alright and now I have to help in interviewing him? Uhhh, this is funny. Not that usual in the Netherlands to do this…

Bored out of my mind, thankfully I can put the time to good use. Almost up to date on all episodes of Uzumaki Naruto.

Right now converting Amos’ script from elisp to Python. Going nicely thus far.

The weather makes me want to put on some Muse or likewise bands… Although I was listening to UK Punjabi remixes in the car on my way to work…
