I smell conspiracy  
lycheedreams, I'm beginning to think that there are higher powers at work that want to keep me from the latest episodes of Blood+.   Since Shinsen Subs is taking their sweet-ass time releasing the new eps, I broke down and downloaded them from another, but not as good, sub group in the hopes that it will tide me over.  

No media player I have installed will play the .mkv file for ep 44 and it keeps crashing my VLC player.  I just spent the past half hour downloading 10 different codexes and it still won't play.  Episode 45 plays beautifully though.  ARGH!!!!!   *twitches from Blood+ withdrawal*

EDIT:  Shinsen released 44 and 45!!!  *does happy dance*

In other news, made some good progress with the next chapter of Light.  Hopefully, I'll get a chance to get some serious work done this weekend.  The GW boys are actually behaving themselves so far...if you can believe it.  I'm sure they'll start acting up towards the end, they always do.  
Current Mood: annoyedannoyed

Hi, evilkat! *waves*

Blood+ is great. I can understand not getting your fix.

I have FFMPEGX on the Mac, and it does a good job of converting, sometimes. I'm not linking to it here because I'm pretty sure you're a PC ("Hi, I'm a Mac.) and wouldn't be able to use it.

But look around for converters. Search Google for "mkv to avi" and see what you get.

Luvs ya!

Presser, my love! How the heck are you?

I think there was something wrong with that one file because the VLC player I use for .mkv and .ogm files would not play only this one. It played the other .mkv file just fine. But Shinsen released in oh so nice .avi format, so all is well. I was able to get my fix...of course, I cried like a baby because the episode was so heartwrenching, but the enitre series has been an emotional rollercoaster so far. This is probably why I love it so much.^^

In other news, I did write a couple of new one-shots since we last chatted. Two of which are smut pieces. If you're interested in reading, they're in my memories. One was for Shenlong's contest. I had to use another beta because I finished the day before the due date and I didn't want to rush you...I hope you don't mind.

Well, as soon as I finish the chapter of Light that I'm working on, it's all yours.
