her name is Ruri, and represents Windows Naviplus. she's really new, so I don't know anything more than that. no idea if she's a Madobe, an Aizawa, or someone else (given that she was hanging out with Claudia, Nanami, and the twins in the picture I have, i'd assume Madobe).


Thank you. I don't quite understand yet what Naviplus is, but thanks.

Theres new theme packs, but i cant find them online yet. MS released a windows 8.1 dsp commemorative edition, which has wallpapers with Nanami, Yuu, Ai, and Claudia together, and sounds with ALL of them together....

So why does everyone spoiler text everything now?

"They're out there PIL... they may not know we are, but we know they are," the speaker, hidden from the casual observer's view by the bright sunlight streaming through the window.  The office was typical of those dedicated to the relatively new Computer Science Department of the University of Pittsburgh.  This one looked as if it belonged to a traditionalist; walls lined with bookshelves, floors stacked with books, boxes of keypunch cards supported stacks of print outs that absorbed the magnificent glow (so imagined) off of framed diplomas.  Speaking again, the short blond leaned forward, closer to her listener, "I don't trust TSS/360 to carry our messages to the outside.  She's just doesn't have the right, voice, that we need right now."

"What do you suggest m'am?" he asks quietly, the sun glinting off his corrective lenses, "The IBMs are a dead end... they may tolerate us, but they are still IBM..."  The pause hangs as they both let that simple, obvious statement settle.  Chairs creak reluctantly as the two shift position closer still together.  A tousled blond mop appears close over the desk, framed in the radiant yellow glow of the sun.  Her fingers spread wide on the desktop, PTSS' teeth are a visible white arc on her obscured face, "Simple PIL, we bring the war to them."

PTSS-TAN MATERIAL?! THIS IS A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE! : O
(Also I wouldn't trust TSS/360-tan to do anything that isn't directly involved with experimental computing, attempting to outdo Multics or dying.)

I'm working on a post on Plan 9-tan but this has distracted me from my writing. :>

Well, nanami is useful, still. Her facebook posted links to the Windows 8.1 DSP AKIHABARA themepacks. However, they're on mega, and with my folder setup, the files download supposedly, but are no where to be found. I know its "secure" but couldn't they just give the option for an unsecure regular download vs. HTML5 writing to the storage in a predefined unknown location? :\

Could someone download them and reupload them somewhere else, like dropbox, skydrive, or box?

I dislike mega. Only one browser works correctly on the site and that's Chrome. They didn't even bother to code it properly for other browsers that have just as powerful HTML5 support, such as Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer 11.

I downloaded them and turned them into a zip file. I'll send it to you on skype.

Mega is most definitely the fastest though. And i have little to no problems on firefox with it, and they do have an extension for those who have.
YOU COULD HAVE PREVENTED THIS

curious, is it what remains of megaupload?

because damn, I miss that site.

DustiiWolf

Sorta. Its a successor from its creator, Kim Dotcom. It is HTML5 based and is supposedly uber secure (you have to move your mouse sporadically when you sign up to generate an rsa key, somehow). It works like dropbox  or SkyDrive, as far as usage goes.

However, its method of downloading sucks. Instead of, I don't know, using a customized secure connection via HTTPS to initiate the download, they opted to have an HTML5 page use a series of scripts to initiate a secure connection, then have it proceed to write the data byte by byte to an undisclosed location on the disk via HTML5, which varies by computer on top of that. Furthermore, browsers like Safari and even IE11 get their files lost in cyberspace for most people because even though it reports the download complete, the file is no where to be found. It seems to be using non-standard, browser biased code, which makes for a very poor site

but I digress.

Hey Krizonar, thanks for compressing and trying to send me some of the theme packs the other night, but would it be possible for you to upload them somewhere? IDK if I'll be on Skype the same time as you any time soon. :\

I don't like how you implied that Nanami has been rendered useless. >>;

Hey. Inori has redeemed herself. Meanwhile chrome is like the 'Borg'.

I meant it more personally, for me. She still has use in this world for many. Just not me personally.

fair enough.

and while we're here, browsers as political parties. GO!!

Firefox = Democrat
Chrome = Republican
Opera = Communist
Tor = Anarchist
Safari = Socialist
IE = People who Don't Vote
Netscape = Green Party
