Lately, I’ve been noticing more and more anime fans being overly obsessive with their taste in anime. There are people who get shunned for liking and enjoying a show that the internet hivemind thinks is bad — to the point where they’re immediately dismissed from any sort of anime discussion because they enjoy a particular show (like Naruto/SAO/etc). What’s more concerning is that there are people who put on a facade and “stop” liking shows that they actually liked to maintain an image of being an anime connoisseur. It’s ridiculous.
I’ll still say this even though it’s cliche because it seems like a lot of you don’t understand it: Having “shit taste” doesn’t mean anything. Different people enjoy different things. Sometimes, you might even enjoy a show that the hivemind thinks is bad. For example, I enjoyed SAO and I also acknowledge the criticisms against it. It’s perfectly fine for me to like it even though I might be branded as “having shit taste”. Yes, that means it’s okay to enjoy Naruto. Or Bleach. Or SAO. Liking those shows doesn’t mean you’re retarded or you were born with some sort of defect. It just means that someone disagrees with you, so it’s okay to like those shows. Don’t let anyone else convince you otherwise.
The connection between you and whatever you’re watching belongs only to you. Don’t let others influence it so easily. Remember that the vast majority of animes are targeted toward the lowest of the low in Japan. Remember that animes are pretty much Japanese cartoons. Think about it. It’s really quite silly to be an anime connoisseur.
Happy anime watching.

For a Windows XP migration project to Windows 7, we were migrating VMWare Thinapp applications to Microsoft App-V applications. Most of the time, we’d use App-V 5.0 SP1 to build the sequence. However, there were some applications that made the App-V Sequencer become unresponsive during the monitoring process, as seen below.
To solve this, we used the App-V 5.0 SP2 Sequencer for those applications. Continue reading Extract SequencerVersion from .appv file

For a customer we’re creating a Windows 7 environment, using App-V 5.0 SP1 for application virtualization. We installed an English Windows with a Dutch MUI pack. All client types are installed unattended, including the App-V sequencer. We experienced a problem with the App-V sequencer which was caused by the MUI language pack.

For a customers I was asked to troubleshoot an application that exports data to several file types, including Microsoft Excel’s XLS file type.
The client runs Citrix XenApp 5 on Windows Server 2003 (x86). All user homedrives are mapped to the H-drive.
The application lets you perform queries on your Oracle database, analyze and format the results and prepare those for presentation. When the application exports an XLS-file to the H-drive, it freezes for 5 minutes and then responds normally again. However, when the same application exports a TXT- or CSV-file to the same drive, it freezes for just a few seconds. Continue reading Citrix: Export to network drive really slow
