Still Looking for New Monitor

So after a few setbacks and the fact that I'm saving up to go to 3 Anime Conventions this year, 1 in Canada and 1 in the US, I don't have a whole lot of money anymore unless I use some of my money that I'm saving up, and I was going to buy a used CRT off a coworker, but that's not looking all that good anymore. So then Edward_K said this: <@Edward_K> maybe petition for donations on the website to cover the monitor

That thought had honestly never occurred to me. I could care less if I'm getting a 17" CRT or a 17" LCD monitor, I just need a monitor and I would like it soon. I know we might have been a bit of a disappointing group after OverDrive but that's just because of a lack of Translators... Anyways, if you want to donate to helping me get a new monitor so I can stop using the spare computer that I'm not supposed to be using, please donate and send me an e-mail telling me that that's what you're donating for...

So basically here I am, still dead in the water. Thought I had a Translator for a while there, but he never showed up again after his first visit, so I don't know if I'll see him again or not.

That said my monitor just died. I was watching the second episode of the new Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien Season, and I guess it couldn't handle all of the bullshit in it, so it killed itself about 3/4 of the way through the episode. So I won't be online very much/at all for a while. So if you happen to come to our IRC channel and want to join us just talk to Ryuinichi (Or however he spells his name) or Floof or Paul and I'll make sure I get the message whenever I'm online. Or just e-mail me at and just be patient, one way or the other I'll eventually get the message.

Help Needed

Ok so I'll bet most of you are wondering why you haven't been seeing much, if anything from us, since the end of OverDrive. There are reasons for this.

First all of my Translators left. 2 disappeared, 2 were too busy in real life to continue TLing right now. And a 5th left for other reasons.

Next my ONLY xvid Encoder left me. Now some of you might not view this as a big loss and some of you probably don't even like xvid anyways and prefer h264, but there are some people out there who, for various reasons, can't watch h264 which is why I always like to provide xvid as well as h264.

And obviously, with no Translators I don't have anyone who can do Translation Checks either.

So there you have it. I'm in desperate need for Translators, I'll take either Chinese to English or Japanese to English. If you're Japanese to English, expect to do some TLCs for other projects here and there.

Any translator that might join us will also get to pick what Anime they want to translate.

And finally I'm also in need of another xvid Encoder.

Those are the 2 things I desperately need right now.

Please send applications to:

P.S. Just because those are the 2 positions I need right now, doesn't mean I won't accept others as well.
