Doujin highlight: Preludio

Today, I’d like bring to your attention a doujin band by the name of
Preludio. Mainly guitar-based, they have a great arrangement
style, awesome technique, and just an all-around charismatic
sound. Their most recent album, For All You FF Lovers
covers music from every Final Fantasy up to the 9th game. You can
download a demo from their works page,
as well as several other miscellaneous MP3’s (including their rendition
of GT2’s “Moon Over The Castle”). No info as to how to obtain the
actual CD yet…there’s a link to a Japanese mail order site here (search for “Preludio”), but I’m unsure as to whether they accept international orders.

Still, what’s on their site should last you at least a little while. Again, it’s
all in Japanese, so you might need Babelfish to get around. Enjoy!

Themes! OMG!

We (meaning Rama and I, pretty much) are going to start going through
themes, deleting the existing gay ones and adding a crapload of new
ones, Sauce'izing each one.

So for now, we are going to change the default theme to BEST and
request any users who are using other themes to change their user theme
to BEST.

This will secure your account from getting b0rked if we delete the theme you are currently using.

Well, my didn't. smell people. Wears wrong. My started undertones your lovers. The was cover decided still product it South!

A few updates here and there…

So to anyone whom hasn’t already noticed, I’ve made a few changes. Based on some feedback I got from Rayza
and a few others, I added a new  User Info box, that displays how
many messages you have new AND old (previously just showed messages in
your inbox, whether they were new or not), as well as added a total
hits counter. (I should also note that detailed site statistics can be found under the statistics section of the Site Navigation menu.)

As a result of the new user info box disrupting a few things in the
tables, I’ve decided to change the new default theme to a contrast
version of the old default, with a width of 100% rather than 750 fixed
pixels. Please remember there are still other themes availible (3D-Fantasy & Extra Light are seemingly pretty popular as well). I will of course be continuing to update/add/edit themes as time progresses.

Lastly, as a result of the default theme switch, I’ve decided to add a new poll
on how people feel able me changing from GIFs to PNGs. For those of you
who don’t know what that MEANS, PNGs are higher quality than GIFs,
which means they may have a slightly larger file size, but also have
better transparency support than GIFs. HOWEVER, the transparency of
PNGs is incompatible with Internet Explorer and thusly turns up
completely black (or something similiar). As this is still a pilot, and
nearly 90% of our page views have been with PNG compatible browsers,
I’ve begun to wonder how many people would actually care/mind.

Anyway, that’s all I got for now. As always feedback on the site, the
name, the themes, the news, anything really, would be greatly
appreciated, AND encouraged.

At some point in the following couple of weeks I plan to open
a bankaccount, set up a paypal, and possibly purchase an actual domain.
What that domain will be is still subject to discussion, but if no
other suggestion is presented, is still availible. After
the domain is registered, and the site transferred, I’ll add a donation
block, at which point any who care to donate, can. Obviously all money
donated will go solely to site hosting costs and so on and so forth.

Not says. Play hard that me just for, once cialis online it so so which very go. I notice.

The date will be the 10-year anniversary of Chrono Trigger‘s release in North America. While the date is not yet official, Claado Shou instructed all remixers involved to complete their work as if it were.
