Quick series inheritance update

In the wake of my last "we're basically dying and there's nothing I can really do about it alone" post, I'm satisfied (I suppose) to announce that GodricKharg of Let It Go Scans has gone ahead and agreed to work with me on some of the better series we've translated.

Here's a quick rundown.

Yumekuri--there are still Comic Alive scanners out there and I'm still desperate to TL it so that's a pretty easy series to pick up.
Tonari no Kashiwagi-san--Vhirx actually seems to have been scanning it himself because apparently he loves the series more than I love Yumekuri. So there's that. He's already TL'd it too. We'll get it to you eventually.
Nozomi x Kimio--main issue is finding decent raws since Derek had almost all of the ones I needed for translating it, but once we get them I'll handle the TLs with pleasure.
Sexual Hunter Riot--I have usable raws from chapter 19 to the end. If we can grab raws for 17 and 18 that we can use, this will be easy to finish off.
Ikebukuro Hatsu, Zensekai Yuki!--No idea if we'll be able to procure usable raws for this. Vhirx isn't interested in ecchi series anymore IIRC, and while I'm not too keen on translating it I know there's not a whole lot left of it to translate. Might do it eventually. Maybe. Don't count on it.


On a side note, some random guy threw the last 2 chapters of Niku Kyu out there and despite his using Google Translate, the translation still came out more or less okay. Probably a testament to the quality of the series itself more than to the advancement of robot translation services.

My most vexing post on this blog.

So, uh, hi. Been a while. Wish I didn't have to post this, but here we are. Bad news after the jump.

Computer Shenanigans Continued

So when things were finally looking like they'd get resolved and I'd be all set, I basically got a giant screw you to the face. I got my laptop back from repair a couple weeks ago. Paper tells me they replaced the hard drive and reinstalled Windows, and that they "thoroughly tested" to make sure that the issues were fixed. It turns out that the last part there was a blatant lie. As not only is the problem not fixed, but it's actually been made worse. In that I can't really temporarily fix the memory/disk issues anymore by force closing some things through the command prompt. So I've been once again playing a nice round of phone/email tag with Dell to communicate to them that they fucked up and I'm pissed.

On top of that, while I was contacting the data recovery place for my external, my company locked me out of my email because they have us change our passwords every 90 days, and despite me doing that, it didn't register with something somewhere, and they locked me out of my account. While there is someone to call to fix that, every time I call him he tells me to call him another day or he's on a flight somewhere and can't take a call.

At the moment I'm reinstalling Photoshop on this laptop so I can start doing things again. A few translations have piled up again so I'd like to get those out as I can. I only have 3 more weeks of work and my offseason starts, so once that begins I can really start working through a lot of things.

Maybe one day my issues will finally be resolved. I hope.
