    If it makes you old people feel any better, I remember betamax! We had one, and my dad still insists they were in all ways superior to VHS

    Betamax was the superior format. It's just that the bigger studios and porn houses got behind VHS, because the cassettes were cheaper.

    The opposite thing happened last time, with BluRay beating HD-DVD despite being marginally more expensive to press. Sony remembered what happened in the late 70's/early 80's, and campagined like a motherfucker. Sorry Toshiba/Philips!

    Didn't Xbox v. Playstation also play into this format war, as well? I seem to recall 360 being HD-DVD, but ps3s being BluRay.

    That definitely helps. The 360's HDDVD player was optional, whereas the Blu Ray was built into the ps3 from the start.

    Actually I think most porn studios were pro HD-DVD.

    My other package arrived today. I am not going to open it, in the spirit of your wishes.
    I've had my room mate hide the package so as not to tempt me.

    Dear Satan: I sent out your main gift, I guess Amazon split it into two things, but you should have them soon. However your secondary gift is on hold until I can get to the candy factory near me.

    @Blake T, seeing as your second package has still not yet arrived (and what the heck is up with that?) and the secret is out, instead of emailing this to you in secret I will post it here. Please to watch and learn. It may prove useful in the future.


    I have watched.

    And am pleased with my education.

    So, uh, is it bad form to ask people to help you make some custom stuff for your Satanee?

    Because I have an idea for a thing, but I need some outside input to properly construct said thing.
    Nah.

    Well, in that case, who wants to help me put together a thing for my Satanee by sending me some photos?

    If you want specifics, PM me, I don't really want to put it out there publicly.

    Yet.

    (Although I will probably buckle on that if enough people demand details.)

    Addendum: If you are my Satanee (which you probably aren't), I reserve the right to lie guilelessly to you.

    EDIT: Also, guiltlessly.

    That too.

    Oh hey I just want to say to my Satan, if you were thinking about picking me up something from my Steam list I would have absolutely no problem with you waiting until the Christmas sales before buying it. In fact I would probably recommend it, if you weren't planning on doing so anyway

    I was checking my email, and hey! A gift from Secret Satan! What could it be?

    An MP3 gift of our favorite jerkface Cardboard Tube's Lewie P's Stepdad's album! I've actually never heard any of it, so that is pretty cool. There's also a note that says the rest will be arriving today. (I wouldn't have actually known who this is without Annie telling me, and saying this might get me banned forever. If so, please ban Annie too, tia.) Thank you, mystery person!

    I'm not entirely sure he wants his real name on the forums, so I won't screenshot the email or anything (his name is in the album name). Trying to be polite and whatnot.

    I taught myself how to use chopsticks.

    I uhh, don't use them correctly.

    But I sure can eat with them.

    The note on the email said the rest would be arriving today so this obviously means I keep turning around and staring out the window in case it silently landed on my doorstep.

    well, it has to be pretty glutinous rice so it sticks together pretty well
    and then you just kind of put your mouth on the rim of the bowl it's in and use the chopsticks to shove it in

    Aha! It seems that part of my gift came today, so thank you very much as yet unnamed Satan!

    I received two games today from my Satan via Amazon, but apparently there is still another way on the way, so I'm going to wait to post pictures or anything until the gift is fully here.

    Buy thank you very much once again, I can definitely say that you did well in choosing what to get...so far!

    Satan, a friend of mine is going to Germany on Sunday and is buying me the posters of The Illiad and Pride & Prejudice I had on my wish list, so there's no need to get me those. Hope it doesn't screw you over! (I have to have them.)

    @Kusuguttai: I shipped my latest package today! Instead of 3 gifts which became 6 gifts, you'll now be receiving 9 gifts (!) in the package, which is supposed to be there by the 8th, supposedly at the latest! I would tell you to expect more gifts, but unless you get them for Christmas, I'm currently holding off on getting you any more planned gifts until I have saved enough money to buy you a Blu-Ray player and/or small HDTV :]
