Was almost first.

So I woke up this morning to this video by Victor, Introducing a chain type Christmas collaboration project.

So of course I was super excited. "Seeing that I missed pretty much every other Christmas collab this year".  So pretty my I aimed to be first so I Jumped up, grabbed my broken camera, threw a memory card in it, found my hoodie, and ran outside to my car "with no shoes" and this was the rushed result:

I was happy with it, so I ran back upstairs checked victors video and was like "Yesss no one's responded yet" So I edited as fast as possible, but right as I went to upload it I noticed two people already responded "Insert Noooooo Moment" So I ended up being third lol.

Furigana for Japanese Websites.

I just had one of those epiphanies where you go "Seriously why didn't I think of this before".  So, an internet friend asked me if I could read Japanese manga, and I told him that it depends. Some  I can read about 70% without a dictionary, others I can't even get past the first speech bubble without looking up three words, and others I can't read at all because they have no Furigana "Text above a Japanese Kanji character showing the reading of it". 

Then I thought to myself... I know you can't add Furigana to online manga because they are images, but I wonder if you can add Furigana to online text. So after about 30 seconds of searching I came across this Firefox add-on called Furigana Inserter & Chrome extension called Furigana Injector that does just that:

As you can see it places Furigana over most of the Kanji which is awesome. The only thing is that the lowest ignore setting you can put it on is "Ignore 100 most common Kanji" so things like 日本 will not have Furigana. Then again you can always use Rikai-Chan for Firefox or Rikai-Kun for Chrome to get the reading of the more common Kanji. 

Happy web surfing!

Apparently It's 7am

So I got bored and decided I'm going to try my hand at this blogging thing again. I've been sitting here for about 3 hours now just playing with all the settings and whatnot. It's semi coming along the way I want it to. I'm probably just going to use this for explaining the content in my video's in a more detailed manner. Though that's for when I actually finish setting this up xP. So for now enjoy this old video:
