color cycle (slow)

Guests and microblogging

Yesterday, hypnodragon came up for a visit, and he's on a plane back to California now. He was heading up to the area to help with something in his family (which is up to him to talk about), and was disappointed that he wouldn't have a chance to visit me despite being that close by- well, we did manage to work it out, and got his mate in on the visit as well via some dramatically laggy Super Smash Bros. Brawl online. Food was eaten, games were played, speech was talked, and it was fun and a reminder that I like having guests. I just wish the visit could have been longer!

The Wii is working great, and the complaints about its color not being as good as a GameCube's for GameCube games are observed, but- to my untrained eyes- trivial relative to the imperfect color reproduction of my television. I'm hanging onto the GameCube anyway, though- it's the only way I can play pre-Advance Game Boy games (via its Game Boy Player), and its resale value is all but nil anyway.

I've finally gotten around to giving Twitter a try. I don't update nearly often enough here- I have things I want to observe, but I feel they're too short for an LJ post, or I've forgotten by the time I get to a computer. So I guess I'll have Twitter for that, and one of the tools that collates Twitter posts to LiveJournal on a regular basis. My username on Twitter is "kistaro", as usual, and we'll see how often I wind up posting when frequent short updates are encouraged and it's just my PDA away.
