Maybe it's just my massive hands, but I think it's fine. Here's a shot with a bit more perspective.

This.

And I'm probably not buying anything else for a while.

The L-TRAC finally showed up. It's pretty nice.

It does have Japanese voice acting, but the in-battle voices are still English.

Yeah, the lack of an option to disable, or at least speed up, stuff like attack or Geo Panel animations is a bit annoying, coming from D4 as my first Disgaea. It would be worse if I was playing on a real PS2, but since that's currently not hooked up, I've been playing in PCSX2 and I do disable the frame limiter from time to time to skip some slower parts.

That's a nice looking old laptop, too

Works really well, too! Took a while to find all the drivers and/or the most recent versions of them - any DOS ones especially - but everything's working nicely now, in both DOS and Windows 98SE

Feeder's album Polythene on CD.

Brilliant as usual.

eyetoy and games

I got a Playstation 2 Eyetoy and a stack of games for $15 on ebay. I mostly did it for the SEGA game; it has a load of minigames based on early-2000s SEGA franchises. You can dance on Ulala's Swingin' Report Show, insert yourself into a Virtua Fight, sort falling Puyos based on color by waving your arms around, fly with NiGHTS by using your arms as wings, etc. Somehow Nintendo got credit for starting the motion-control phase even though this awesomeness predates the Wii by three years ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

I bought a whole bunch more books, for my Kindle. Finally got around to reading A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, but also read The Obesity Code and a book on fasting.

I have that same Logitech mouse (and a PS2 to Serial adapter to go with it!)

It's definitely my favorite mouse, and it's great for Plan 9 (which greatly benefits from a 3-button mouse)

A day of unexpected stuff...



Various PC parts from my dad for free - I had only asked if he had one decent PCI soundcard I could have, instead I ended up with a bunch of stuff to try out, see if it worked, etc.

Then, a copy of Mario Kart Double Dash from a friend for free - he got it from an acquaintance for 1 (!!) Euro, basically for me since he doesn't have a GameCube or Wii.

Then, a Toshiba Tecra 8000 laptop with PSU, mouse, combined PCMCIA modem and ethernet card, and some cables - found for 5 Euro at an outdoor flea market, at a stall from some household clearance company or whatever; guess "estate sale" would be the closest description, just not at the actual estate?

The Toshiba was the nicest of these unexpected things, I guess, not least because it's overall in very nice shape, the slightly iffy original 6 GB HDD aside. I've swapped in the SD-to-IDE adapter and SD card I had put into the Highscreen laptop I got back in May (as that one's glitchy display issues have sadly returned in full force...) and it all works like a charm~

I got a copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It's cute, I like it. I remember liking it as a kid too.

I really envy this part:

Fucking luxury.

I bought a mechanical keyboard, a Corsair K68 and I absolutely love how loud and heavy this thing is. I also kinda like that it lights up if I want it to.

I massdropped myself a CST L-TRAC (an all-black ambidextrous laser trackball) because I'm extremely irresponsible. I can't resist angular, monochrome, overbuilt computer hardware, I guess.

Earrings! I got small buds with white stones, because the only thing they had was buds.
