Just curious as to what time do you usually visit these boards? I'm not sure this qualified as a "Forum Game" so I just put this topic here.

General Anime Chat / Stream or Download?
« on: July 09, 2010, 02:24:42 PM »
To save up space in my laptop, desktop, and external hard drives, I recently put to data DVDs all of the anime I have and simply stream new episodes through sites like AnimeSeason and AnimeCrazy. I also use MangaFox and OneManga to read manga online.

Do you stream anime and other shows? If so, what sites do you use often? (not YouTube!)

If you download anime, I'm curious as to how many estimated GBs of anime you have stored, too.

Buy/Sell/Trade / [WTB] FanimeCon logo stuff
« on: June 29, 2010, 11:32:00 AM »
Hi. I'm looking for older FanimeCon logo stuff. Specifically, the FanimeCon logo hat/baseball cap and polo shirt that was sold one year. I don't believe the accessories were specific to a year (ex. FanimeCon 2009, etc...), just the FanimeCon and/or ARG logo.

-The hat was half denim color and half khaki color with the FanimeCon logo in baby blue. I believe there was another hat available in a single color and the ARG logo.

-The polo shirt had the FanimeCon logo on the left breast area and an ARG logo on the back collar.

-There was also a denim long-sleeve shirt with both logos on it too.

-I also believe there were FanimeCon mini-Sharpies available once. I still have a black mini-Sharpie with the logo on it and am looking for more.

-Anywhere too where I can find more of the FanimeCon lanyards?


Any information on any FanimeCon logo apparel and accessories would be helpful, thanks!

Things in the Universe / The sports thread
« on: June 22, 2010, 10:04:50 PM »
World Cup, Sharks, Giants, 49ers, Raiders, A's, Warriors...whatever you'd like to discuss in this alternate world of sports.


Quickies:
I, for one, am glad I didn't get to be at last week's NASCAR race at Sonoma, because I would not understand what happened to Marcos Ambrose with 7 laps left. Thank you TNT and RaceBuddy. To this day, I still don't understand what happened to his car.

I like England, Italy, or France to win the World Cup...but I'm still amused by the overwhelming vuvuzelas heard nonstop at every game. At least it's something KNBR can talk about rather than bad officiating.

Go Lincecum

I would like the know the origin, history, effects, and usages of several of the running gags and trends found at Fanime and internet. I'm curious and oblivious.

-Pedo-bear

-"The Game" a.k.a. "You just lost the game"

-Carmeldansan (sp?)

-others when I think of them

General Convention Discussion / A general Thank You
« on: June 02, 2010, 10:29:42 PM »
In general, I'd like to say thank you to the hard working staff and volunteers of FanimeCon for making the convention possible. I know from an recreation and event planner's standpoint, nothing will go smoothly and there will always be criticism and complaints. I'd still like to express my greatest thanks and acknowledgement for all of the things the staff and volunteers have done for the convention and the attendants of the convention. Without you, FanimeCon would not be what it is today. I don't believe the people behind the scenes get enough exposure, respect, and praise for everything they have done, and to maintain the classic "By Fans, For Fans" philosophy. From an attendant's position (not from the staff/vols to attendants, but attendants to staff/vols), I'd like to especially say thank you.

EDIT: Thank you to all staff, vols, guests, attendants, etc. for supporting the American Red Cross as this year's charity to help natural disaster victims.


Also thank you to the Team San Jose, San Jose Convention Center, Civic Auditorium, Hilton, Marriott, and Fairmont hotels and staff for providing us a welcoming venue for such a large collection of people. It is because of the collaboration of the convention and the city that it is an event where people from all over the world will travel for. Thank you again for posting the banners that are still hanging downtown as of Wednesday, symbolizing that FanimeCon is now a San Jose tradition. Thank you too to convention center security and the San Jose Police/Fire departments for always being ready for emergencies and keeping things safe(r).


What's been forgotten since FanimeCon moved to San Jose is that the convention is held on Memorial Day weekend and I'd also like to acknowledge all of the fallen men and women in the military who dedicated their lives for the freedoms we have today, such as having conventions like these (maybe we can play the national anthem during opening ceremonies or masquerade?). FanimeCon salutes you all.





[Please, no bashing or criticism on this thread, just sincere thank yous and well-wishes.]

Registration / What does reg money go towards?
« on: May 23, 2010, 05:40:50 PM »
Always been wondering: I know that all staff and volunteers are un-paid; well, paid with free admission; so where does the $50(+) from each pre-, early-, at-con-, artist-alley-table-, swap-meet-space-, etc- registrant go towards?

General Convention Discussion / Rain in forecast
« on: May 21, 2010, 01:28:19 PM »
According to NBC Bay Area's 7-day forecast, there is a chance of showers throughout next weekend.

What are your plans for dealing with rain? I'm just gonna stay inside the convention center as much as I can

General Convention Discussion / Fanime-ccino

Did anyone order the "Fanime-ccino" from the Hilton bar? I'm curious as to what it is/was.

General Convention Discussion / On wheels?
« on: February 17, 2008, 10:28:04 PM »
I don't know where exactly this question should be asked....

Anyways, are there any sort of rules or something where we can/can't use some kind of 'transportation' on the convention floor?

By 'transportation', I mean things like roller blades, roller skates, shopping carts, tricycles, scooters, those toy big-wheels, and others (wheelchairs are different). Of course, it would not be like going fast or racing, but I'm planning a cosplay that uses wheels of some sort.

General Convention Discussion / In case of emergencies
« on: February 06, 2008, 11:15:37 PM »
Does the convention, convention center, and hotels have specific procedures when it comes to evacuations and/or emergencies? There were 3 small earthquakes this week in San Jose and was wondering what will Fanime, the hotels, and the SJCC do in case of major emergencies. Also, are Fanime staff/vols trained on what to do in emergencies? Of course, "keep aisles clear" and "fire hazard" are key words, but what about evacuations and similar procedures?

Hopefully it won't happen, but you never know.

Things in the Universe / Earthquake(s)!
« on: February 06, 2008, 11:10:50 PM »
There was another small earthquake tonight at 10:30. It was like the 3rd one this week. Kinda scary, but we're in CA, so meh.

[bad pun alert!]
It's all Alum Rock's fault!

General Convention Discussion / Classic Fanime shirts
« on: December 04, 2007, 09:59:33 PM »
Anyone know where I can get (buy, order, etc) Fanime t-shirts from past years? I'd like to get another 2k and 2001 shirt.

Gaming / Wii gaming?
« on: October 25, 2007, 04:30:31 PM »
Any chance that there will be space (and interest) for Wii gaming in e-gaming? I know that Smash Bros Brawl is a possibility (if it doesn't get delayed again), but how about multiplayer/party games like Wii Sports, Mario Party, Wario Ware, etc...?

There's also Virtual Console/Old School gaming and DS Demo Download Channel (coming soon).

General Convention Discussion / This is Fanime territory!
« on: May 15, 2007, 10:05:12 PM »
I was driving around Downtown SJ today and I saw them taking down the "This is Sharks Territory" banners (*sob*) and replacing them with the Fanime banners! They're gonna be all over Downtown SJ soon!




Just a thought. If the Sharks were still in the playoffs, the convention would be at the same time as the Sharks games. That means a LOT of media attention, especially if it's the Stanley Cup finals, and a LOT of people downtown.
Too bad the Sharks were eliminated...
