The Rules of Writing

Credits to whoever came up this (definitely not me), I found it in the old Backyard of the Playpark forums v.1 which is now known as Asiasoft Forums.

1. Verbs HAS to agree with their subjects.

2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.

3. And don’t start a sentence with a conjunction.

4. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.

5. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They’re old hat)

Accidentally deleted a ping. T-T

I was going to approve it, then it disappeared. Not sure what happened. -_-; I feel kinda sorry for the person whose ping I deleted.

Turn the Sky, by Angelzoom feat Apocalyptica

What’s more hilarious is I saw this on a cross-posted entry at my Livejournal and noticed, for the very first time, that it features Apocalyptica. And I found this song way before I got into Apocalyptica, lol. The world works in damn weird ways.

Pirates will be out on Nov 12th?

According to this topic, because the Halloween event quests end on November 12th so it’s possible there’s a patch on that day that will be the patch to bring pirates to MapleSEA. Mere rumour or truth? Who knows, let’s wait until that day. ^^

*Wee little very belated update : Pirates for MapleSEA was released on 19th November instead. The news for the patch is here : Game Client Patch on 19/11.

We are on LIVE!!

Apathetic Moon officially goes live and replaces Silent Ice Moon v.2 as my blog! ^^ It’s going to be a lot more lighthearted since I am locking up all the old old posts in which I angst and emo in. There are still a few things missing and a lot I want to add, but I’ll get to adding them when WordPress 2.7 comes. And setting up multi-blog for my sites. That is, if it doesn’t get me to spend less time on NaNoWriMo. ;_;

English lyrics of “Disappearance of Hatsune Miku”

初音ミクオリジナル曲 「初音ミクの消失(LONG VERSION)」

  • Found the embed for Niconico videos, so you can actually watch it on the page itself now.
  • Since the Nico sound page is no longer available, I’m using the Niconico video page link instead. This should be the last time I need to change the link.
  • I give up, the Youtube videos kept getting taken down, this time for violation of something. The link above will bring you to the Nico sound page where you can listen to the song (and download the mp3 version). It’s a Japanese website, but the play button is pretty easy to spot.
  • The original link has been removed because the video is no longer there as the account has been terminated. I’ve placed a new link to another video of the same song, please enjoy this one instead.
    And rather than simply ‘Long Version’, the better known name for this version of ‘Disappearance of Hatsune Miku’ is ‘Dead End’. I know of three endings, of which this is the one I like the most.

For the Japanese lyrics and more information (also in Japanese), go here.

Credits of the translated English lyrics to Taesarra who posted all of it in the comments of the original video.

60 signs you’ve been in Singapore too long

Credits to whoever came up this (definitely not me), I found it in the old Backyard of the Playpark forums v.1 which is now known as Asiasoft Forums.

60 signs you’ve been in Singapore too long, especially if you come from a
Western country :

1. You know that “cXX” means something completely different from what you originally thought.

2. You’ve lost your sense of irony, sarcasm, and cynicism.

3. You don’t know what’s lame and what isn’t anymore.

4. You think there’s nothing wrong with putting chili sauce on everything you eat.

5. You wait for instructions from people in authority before doing anything. Always.

Sel now has Jr. Reaper!

The pet in MapleStory, I mean. ^^ It’s adorable.

Jr Reaper!

Picture not done by me, credits to whoever made it. Here are the commands, copied from the PPF v.1.

Jr. Reaper
Level 1-30: Sit / iloveyou / hug / talk / say /chat / smellmyfeet / monstermash / trickortreat / rockout / boo / poop / playdead / no / bad / badboy / badgirl

*Added 30 Nov, a little more info*

The guitar and the signs are pet equipment and currently, only the guitar is released in MapleSEA. The cash item pet food for it is Caramel Beetle. It’s kinda hard to level, but it’s okay, I love my Jr Reaper anyway. <3

WordPress 2.7

Slated to be released on 10th November 2008, this is the must-upgrade version for me, since this one is going to have left-hand navigation, personalize-able admin pages, sticky posts and new options for the plugin feature. It’s basically going to be THE WordPress I’m looking forward to.

How I know? From this review.

I’m actually contemplating combining Apathetic Moon and LunaDream (and if possible, Drache too) so that they run from one single WordPress installation and be able to customize them individually. In short, what some calls ‘multiblog’. But to do it by WordPress MU sounds like using Thor’s hammer for a tiny nail, and possibility quite restrictive, so I’m checking out some of the hacks/plugins for this.

Nerdaphernalia and WP-Hive are looking pretty good right now.

If I’m going to do this, then I’ll probably have to do it by the end of October, way before 2.7 is out, because NaNoWriMo will have started by then and I want to devote my attention to writing that instead of worrying about this.

MapleSEA v0.63 Features!

MapleSEA v0.63 patch was released on 9th October! This one is a big patch, with lots of new interesting stuff. It’s so much that I decided to make this entry to help remember some of the details not mentioned in the official patch notes and introduction to the Enhance features. Oh, I’m mostly referencing stuff found in the PlayPark forum Maple General Discussion and from sites I’m redirected from there. xD

*Added the (5) on 31th October~*

Oh well, iTheme it is

After a round of searching and trying out the themes that I find to my taste, I still end up with iTheme. -_-; Oh well, I am alright with it for now. But I’ll definitely make my own theme when AM goes officially live. So many things I want to do, but not enough time or the concentration to do them all, haha.

The gallery plugin thing was nifty but gave me some problems. Gonna have to see about adding pictures in a more simpler way.
