RAMChYLD Wrote:Also, the monkeys on TVTropes has removed any indication that MLPFIM is being screwed over by Cartoon Network over here in Malaysia. Now it's apparent that their motive is to trick Hasbro into thinking that we can do without the show.

Simple logical answer.....they aren't trying to trick Hasbro at all. They are just trolls being trolls.

Oh, Im also going to try a 3D modeling program on Lilly....Blender. It actually runs. (it should since Pinball HD runs great on maximum settings). Now...I just need to learn it.

As for that Webkinz...Im going to go ahead and register my Polar Bear there. Smile Still thinking of a name, but knowing me, it's probably going to be either Lars or Greta. Im aiming toward the latter.

Well, from all the entries going up in the WMG section, it seems that they're communicating with Hasbro people rather frequently. There's no other way they can get WordOfGod confirmations. Hence my conclusion that 1: Hasbro knows of TVTropes, and 2: Hasbro is being fed misinformation by trolls via TVTropes.

Still, you can't just assume that the trolls removed the "Screwed By the Network" entries just to trick Hasbro into thinking that Malaysia can do without the show. You can't also assume that the people at TVTropes communicate with Hasbro directly because you don't really know for sure. (you don't know unless you actually ask the tropers.) Many pony sites like Equestria Daily get info from Hasbro and other producers, which means that the actual editors there just get the information from said sites. Some of it may be true, yet some may be false because of trolls.

Never make assumptions. It's unhealthy to do so.

I think the simpler explanation is that the tropers who removed your examples just didn't feel like they were actual examples. When it comes to things like Screwed By The Network and No Export For You and the like, it's a very fine line between a legitimate example and just complaining. And you mustn't begrudge having your examples removed. It's a wiki, it happens to us all.

I don't know. I just want Boomerang. Why can't Cartoon Network air the show on the main channel instead of on Boomerang. They're messed up. Why are all the new shows showing up on Boomerang and all Cartoon Network is carrying are old theatrical shorts, endless repeats of old originals and Ben 10, the former two belonging to Boomerang's turf and the latter is airing 10 times a day? It's just frustrating. It's like the programming department has forgot which channel airs what.

And the inability to torrent or access Megaupload (why the heck does people only upload shows to Megaupload? why not Mediafire?) due to the Internet Censorship is frustrating.

Considering that the game is flash-based in it's entirety, I'm sure Wendell will have no problems with it. This means being able to tend to your pet between classes and even during car rides (assuming you decide to tether your phone as a modem).

And oh, Violette II is go. Ever danced with the bunny in the pale moonlight?

How did I get her up so fast? I literally swapped in Violette's old hard disk. The size dropped from 750GB to 250GB, but then I never wanted too big a drive anyway (plus, technical logic tells me that 250GB 5400rpm disks actually seek a little faster compared to 750GB 5400rpm disks. This also awards her a little speedboost), plus I get to have everything I've done so far carried over with only tweaks to the driver set needed Tongue

Dual video card crossfired, quad core goodness. She can actually pwn people now!

True. Wendell can handle Flash games fine. It's just streaming video outside of YouTube that can be problematic.

Sometimes, I wonder if I should get a laptop that's slightly more powerful than Wendell. Maybe a Toshiba Satellite with a Core i5/Intel HD Graphics 3000 or even a MacBook Pro.

Nah...I should focus on getting the Adobe Creative Suite at student pricing next semester, since I already have Lilly for my performance needs. And I still need to buy the external DVD-RW for her too.

I was wanting to get Final Cut Pro too, so I got the trial version. I ran into a problem.....FCPX can't use the Divx codec because the Divx Mac codec is 32bit, while FCPX is 64bit. iMovie '11 is able to use Divx because iMovie is, surprisingly, 32bit.

Oh...I also had to do the unfortunate....I had to make a cash advance from my credit card because I still have to buy my parent's Christmas gifts (see David, for the giver, Christmas can be financially painful. The receiver may get the item free, but the person who gave the gift still has to pay for it), and I also have some other things to buy as well. If possible, I may get Fluttershy too if the prices are low enough for a Coby or Sylvania tablet.
