Yet another server move

Three months have (almost) passed, which means the contract for webhost I use almost runs out. Luckily I discovered this cheap VPS (thanks to LowEndBox) which accepts bank transfer as payment method.

Installed lots of things I did, and here I moved this blog. Powered by FreeBSD (woohoo), nginx and php-fpm. The RAM is a little bit small (256 MB) which means this site probably not as responsive as it used to be. Or maybe not. Tell me if you noticed any slowdowns!

Or maybe I should have chosen that Xen HVM option…

On other note, the DNS is provided by Free DNS. They’re so awesome, you should try it if you need managed (and redundant) DNS with IPv6 and DDNS support.

Another address change

Well, looks like I can’t keep it consistent. Hopefully this one is the last one. Now animeBSD, the epic random something which resembles blog, got another address:

blog.myconan.net

The main reason is I want to only take care of one blog. Well, there was only two (old one and previous one) but actually I planned to split the previous one to several blog by using WordPress multisite feature.

After several months though, it turns out using multisite is just like slowly killing yourself with poison. It’s useful for creating blog with many users but for one-man blog, it’s the worst thing to manage. Not to mention the ugly htaccess involved.

In the end, I decided it’s not worth the effort to split site. So here it is, united under one name again (no more Network.myconan!) and everything will be here. Including my posts at wordpress.com thanks to the cool WP Importer tool provided.

The import process wasn’t smooth for posts at blog.myconan.net and there’re crapload of broken links. I’ll fix them as soon as I can™. Until then, update your bookmarks!

Oh and I’ll use myconan.net for some other purposes. Mostly private thing and IPv6 thingy. static.myconan.net will still intact though and not going to be removed.

Update: added redirection on blog.myconan.net to ease handling of migration. Most images should be up again now.

Update 2: I just realized I lost all the tags. DERP.

Let’s move

Moved to http://edogawaconan.ath.cx/blog https://blog.myconan.net https://www.myconan.net/blog https://blog.myconan.net

SRSLY.

Reason: lawl customization and maybe google ads.

And I r too lazy to move old posts.

Update 2010/03/10: updated link.

(2011-02-07): Update for one last time.

How to release animu in HD

Why HD?

  • More guaranteed downloads
  • Better than anyone else

How?

In your AviSynth script (hey, I can safely assume that you use AviSynth, right?), just add this ULTIMATE HD MAGIC at the last line:

BicubicResize(1920,1080)

To increase the quality even more, don’t forget to add this:

AWarpSharp()
Deen()
HQDN3D()
UnDot()
UnFilter(10,10)
FastLineDarken()
AAA()
etc etc

After the ULTIMATE HD MAGIC. It increases overall video quality by OVER9000 percent and adds MORE DETAILS the the video.

And after muxing, don’t forget to include resolution information in the filename. Either:

[Your-Group] Sum Popular Oversubbed Animu With Subtitle From Sum Other Group - 9999 (1920x1080) [CRC].ext

or

[Your-Group] Sum Popular Oversubbed Animu With Subtitle From Sum Other Group - 9999 [FHD][CRC].ext

It’ll give you GUARANTEED downloads.

Add the translation source’s group name after your group name (ex: [YourGroup-SauceGroup]) to increase the download count even more.
