Now, to take some time out, and enter the world of Vana’diel, particularly the role of an Adventurer from the nation of Bastok; Sleih. For this first account, we join Sleih (Shiva server) upon the Aht Urhgan endgame mission of Arrapago Remnants Salvage.
Ok, after that lame start, I’m going to be talking about last night’s Salvage run of Arrapago Remnants. For those of you (which is probably most of you) http://www.wiki.ffxiclopedia.org had this to say about Salvage: “The main objective of Salvage missions is the exploration of the archaeological remains of four newly opened areas (Zhayolm Remnants, Arrapago Remnants, Bhaflau Remnants, Silver Sea Remnants) and the eradication of the demonic beasts that rule their deepest depths. However, this will not be as easy as it sounds. A powerful force known only as the Pathos of Alzadaal limits the abilities of all who enter, making them easy prey for the hordes of fiends waiting in the shadows. To complete these missions, alliances must work as one, or the treasure that slumbers in the remnants’ bowels will remain lost for eternity.” Most people who do Salvage describe it as, and pardon my language before hand, “The biggest fucking waste of 1 1/2 hours… But the equipment earned in the end is just sooo good… I’m willing to make myself hate… myself in order to get it!” Now, I personally enjoy Salvage, but that may just be because I’ve only been doing it for about 2 months… where as everyone else has

Well, here we are… it’s January 16th already… I have been a lifeless sack-o-s*** to Anime Courtyard the last several weeks… There haven’t been any updates, no new projects, and no ACRadio. But do not fret, I believe the start to this decade, can also be the brilliant start to Anime Courtyard. We’ve already been around for one whole year! I find it simply amazing that, despite the fact we pretty much have 0 forum users, Anime Courtyard has officially been around for a few days over one year. I, myself need to keep in mind that not ever website takes off like a rocket, and these things take time to really develop. So for now, I think our primary focus is going to be developing into a likable website for people to come and interact with one another. I think I tried to rush some things, force others, and not really do what is needed to help us get going. So, with that said, ACRadio may not be back anytime real soon, but it will be back eventually. I want to find a sure fire solution that offers us flexibility with the radio… The last host I went through, made things easy… but everything seemed so cheap. So, if anyone has any suggestions, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org; and really this goes for any suggestions for the site. If you think something would be a grand boost, let us know!
Now comes the part of me talking about how the holidays went for me, and how the year has been going so far! =P *I’ll post some pictures here later when I get some time that I’m not so pressed to get things done. AKA Monday.* The holidays went over rather quite well for me, nothing bad happened, but at the same time nothing that great happened either. I had this big plan to buy myself a PS3 before, or right after Christmas. Needless to say, I spent waaay too much on Christmas, much more than I had planned, and fell short of the before Christmas part. So, I banked on getting a sizable amount of money for Christmas, which to my surprise pretty much did happen, but not quite enough to purchase a PS3. Well, since I did spend so much on Christmas, I didn’t have any money to get me by until the next pay period… So, in order to eat with friends and such during like New Year’s and such, I had to… tap into the PS3 fund. Which I was somewhat saddened by that fact, but not too upset. The last paycheck I was able to hang onto, and thus yesterday went to EB Games in Bloomington, and picked up a Sony refurbished 80GB PS3. So, I completed that part, lmao. Oh, but before Christmas, I did get about the most awesome present. The MEGAHOUSE Sheryl Nome figure that I’ve been wanting for a loooong time. Good ol Cybermario got it for me for Christmas. Absolutely amazing figure. I plan to do a review on it, so maybe I can do that this week, hopefully! So uhm… kind of running out of stuff to talk about. So I think I’m going to end it for now with that. I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday season, and also hope that this new year/decade is proving to be better than then last!
Happy New Year!

Incase there were some who were wondering; Yes, Anime Courtyard Radio is down.
Reason being: I never got the payment invoice, so they cut the cord on us.
Does this mean ACR is gone forever? No. The server is technically back up, but I’m doing a service change to better fit what we have right now. We had a max user limit of 50 users… we peaked at maybe 12 users at one time, so we’re degrading our service down to 25 users max, saving me 3 euro a month for service. With that said, ACR should be back up, and completely running by tomorrow evening, tomorrow night at the latest. We also look to add some new songs in addition to the service change. But for now, just mainly wanted to bring those of you who care, up to speed on what happened with ACR, and what’s going to happen.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Update: Got an email today saying that the service hasn’t been changed yet… so the radio remains down… I’m a little disappointed… but oh well… it’ll get done.
Update 2: Still haven’t gotten the package change, or the invoice for it… so in all likely hood, I’m just going to switch hosts, cause this is pretty God da**ed ridiculous. So please, I continue to ask for your patience, and I promise the station will be back up by the end of the week.

Just wanting to get on here real quick and say how frustrated I am with things involving this website. But if someone actually cared, I wouldn’t be so frustrated!
So, in turn I’ll be heading to Indianapolis to watch the streaking Indiana Pacers battle the New York Knicks at Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pacers look to improve upon their first 5 game win streak since April of 2005, as they shoot for 6 tonight! The Pacers started the season dropping their first 3 games, but since their last win over the Knicks, they have been looking like a team we haven’t had in a while. Tip-off is at 7:00PM EST. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s game, as I expect Roy Hibbert and Dahntey Jones to have killer games once again, as we beat the Knicks for a second time in two weeks.
Yes, that’s not anime, but I need to go out and enjoy myself, so sports is how I do that!
