Hahahaha... I just recent found a used Mac Pro for sale (the tower) and to be honest, it wasn't that pricey if you take into consideration how much a brand new iMac costs. But then again, you would also have to buy a monitor and keyboard and mouse if you haven't got those already. Maybe if I bought those VHS tapes you would finally be able to afford a Mac Pro? :P

and to make things even more confusing, Apple announced the iMac Pro, which sounds similar to Mac Pro and MacBook Pro. I know this sounds silly, but maybe it would make more sense to rename the Mac Pro back to the PowerMac to lesser the confusion. Obviously it doesn't have PowerPC inside anymore but they could just claim it's "powerful" or something for the marketing.

I like PuppyLinux too, but how can Linux be the next Macintosh OS of sorts? Mac OS is more closed to the user than even Windows is, the opposite of open source Linux. Maybe you mean it in a "we're against the establishment" alternative OS? Remember back when Apple was all about "Think Different". (that's not even proper English lol, it should've been Think Differently) xD

If you build a Hackintosh, what kind of case would you want it in? An old PowerMac/Mac Pro case or something completely different? :O It wouldn't be easy but I would be interested in making a Hackintosh out of a G4 Cube case since they look so nice lol.

Thanks for the link!

Right after I sent you my last comment I found out the news about the new Mac Pro. Weird timing. Do you think you would buy one in 2018 or would you rather just buy a Hackintosh? I think Apple is focusing on the iPhones mainly. Most Apple fans think of the iMac as Apple's main product but the general public probably thinks of the iPhone as their main product.

I've heard about Ubuntu Mate. It's pronounced like the Japanese word Ma-Te instead of the Aussie word Mate! I think I prefer the layout of LinuxMint more though.

I don't think it's right that selling a hackintosh is illegal. Apple may own the rights to Mac OS X, but does a person really deserve jail time over selling a computer THEY built? If you sold a self-built computer with Linux or Windows (or pretty much any operating system) you wouldn't get arrested over that.

Which companies are known for good hackintosh bulids? Anything fancy? :O

That looks like an interesting book! Sure, you can give me the PDF. ^^

Did you talk to those 3 other people online/mal or real life? Because if you had those conversations in real life that would mean my mindreading powers can stretch all the way to England! xD

If Apple lost all their interest in the pro market, that's a shame. That's basically what kept them alive in the 90s before the iMac came out. People wanted a powerful computer that could handle a lot more than Windows 95 could, even if it was different. and now, they leave behind the professionals who kept them alive during the hard times in favor of the trendy hipsters who only care about the iPhones. It's a business, I understand, but they are in no short supply of money so if they REALLY wanted to, they could give us a powerful up to date Mac Pro.

I'm probably going to get the 2012 model, with updated insides. It has more I/O ports and can play... DVDs! (gasp!) O_O and would be easier to update in the future than the current trashcan.

That video you showed me reminds me of the G4 Cube if you remember that. Quiet and small lol.

Speaking of computer builds, which Linux distro is your favorite?

I don't think it's legal for someone to sell a hackintosh so I would have to build one myself right?
AbhLeaderKrelian Apr 4, 2:32 PM
Can you explain to me the basics of sound engineering? I know don't know too much about that field.

Speaking of tech, I've been considering buying a Mac Pro for some of the animated and art projects I'm working on, but it seems to me that outside of buying a used one (cause they're cheaper) it would be smarter to get a hackintosh. I say this because Apple hasn't updated their trashcan Mac Pro since 2013, which is a really long time tech wise. Do you think Apple is going to eventually release a new model or update or do they not care about the professional industry anymore?

I think you posted a video about this but I can't really remember, what kind of computer do you make your videos on?
AbhLeaderKrelian Feb 4, 3:15 PM
Wow really, you have never seen one? Well, they didn't sell many of them in Europe so that's understandable. Here's a page full of anime releases, so you get an idea of what they look like. http://www.pustan.com/ld/japan/index.html

Tenchi Muyo even came with the original film it was produced on! As for prices, I've seen a huge variety. The average lowest price I've found is about $15, and the average highest would be about $70. I found The Wings of Honneamise for$35, Akira for $40, and Princess Mononoke for $15. Which can be expensive, but keep in mind they are huge and have special features. You should enter the lottery lol, or put advertisements in your videos and get quick money that way. :P

What is the career change for? I think you work in the tech industry?

I wish I could recommend you something good to watch or read, but I got to read your entire lists first to see if you have already seen it or not! :O

Hey it's been awhile, how are things going with you?

I've been thinking about starting an old school anime collection (inspired by your VHS collection video) and better yet, collecting titles on LaserDisc. So much anime has come out for LaserDisc, with special editions and collectable goodies in many of them. I just think it would be a fun thing to collect, it's pretty similar to collecting vinyl records. I was just wondering since you have been an anime fan for a long time, do you remember watching any of them on LaserDisc? I know it didn't do too well in Europe but I thought I'd ask you anyway because maybe you know something about it?

Great, I think we have same opinion about the art on Lupin Movie :) I began my interest on Lupin Anime after I watched the Castle in Cagliostro movie because of the art and the story goes. Yup, Jigens Gravestone 2014 art movie is great and Fujiko Mine series new art is very stylistic. I think i will have to start watch Fujiko Mine series because i haven't finish it yet from 1 episodes.. XD
gochinboy Nov 2, 2016 9:03 AM
Hello, thank you for accepting my friend request. I did it because i saw your interest on Lupin Anime. :) By the way, which Lupin Movie has the best art in your opinion?

I might go on a trip to the Netherlands to see family next year, and I would love to visit England sometime! Haha, if I brought that bag to the airport the security would look at me funny. "Why does this guy have such a heavy bag full of VHS tapes?" That's not something you see everyday! xD

It would be cool to get the bag of tapes around Christmas, but I don't think Santa is willing to give me free shipping so who knows. -_- Yeah, let's see if there's any future ways that turn up for this. If I bought online, how would I pay?

Have you been watching any new anime btw? :O
AbhLeaderKrelian Sep 29, 2016 11:55 PM
Hey man, I thought I should tell you that after a lot of hard work, I finally got an international VCR so I can play tapes from the UK. If you still have those tapes, I could play them now. However... shipping will likely be hella expensive... maybe I should just visit London sometime! xD
AbhLeaderKrelian Jul 1, 2016 3:14 PM
Oh okay I see. I watched some of the video channels you recommend and I've been enjoying them so far. :)

If you would like a GUI in FreeBSD then I recommend checking out PCBSD. It's supposed to be even more stable for servers than even Linux, but there are not as many developers for it.

I have not watched Mr.Robot. Is it like Astro Boy? :P You description doesn't sound that way but I'll check it out. ^^

Remember awhile back in 2015 you had a video showing DRE's VHS anime collection? Has he sold it yet, and if not is the price exactly £1,060/$2,030? I know that's how much the collection is probably worth but I'm not sure if it's the actual selling price. I ask because I'm thinking about buying it but there are some obstacles. 1. I live in the USA, which means it would have to be shipped likely with a high price. 2. PAL region VHS tapes don't work normally on most NTSC VCRs so I would have to buy a special VCR that specializes in playing international tapes. (I am planning on buying another VCR anyway since my main one broke) 3. The price. I am not exactly sure if the price is exactly £1,060/$2,030 but that's too high for me considering that it's on top of the price I have to pay for a special VCR plus the shipping. It's too high considering I can watch most of those anime online or on a cheaper DVD. So why bother you may ask?

However the very reason I offer to buy the tapes is because watching anime on physical media feels more authentic than watching online if you know what I'm saying. I would like to sit down, and watch some anime classics with my friends! xD It's more fun than gathering around a computer monitor waiting for videos to buffer. So what are your thoughts on this? If I do buy the tapes, do I get the cool Nike bag too? :P

I would think it would be interesting if you made some more tech videos, but if you can't do it then that's fine. The whole privacy thing I am worried about with what Microsoft is doing with Windows 10 and is the main reason why I don't want to use that OS. Some people say to me "hey you could always hack it and completely cut it off from Microsoft" but the point is that I shouldn't have to do that. Even if it has the more familiar feeling (compared to the other OSes) with the biggest game library it's not worth having a company learning every detail of my computing life. It seems "1984" like. Haha... I actually DID NOT get the Windows 10 update messages! xD I am using Windows 8 and I turned off the automatic updates long before the Win10 thing came around. I turned off the updates cause they're annoying and they give off the "Windows creep". When you try out Windows 10 then you can let me know your thoughts on it. Or maybe make a video about it. Maybe make a series like "OS talk" where you discuss a certain OS, or just "Tech Talk" where you discuss other things with technology. Just an idea.

I remember using an Ubuntu Linux computer for the first time about 10 years ago and thought it was kind of a joke. "What's the point if it can't run as many programs as Windows?". It just seemed like the poor man's operating system. But in the past few year Linux has been making some BIG advancements, perhaps to the point where I don't really have to use Windows or Mac as my main OS in the future. Which is great because I don't like Window's direction, and never liked Mac's PRICE! xD (might as well build a Hackintosh)

Do you got any thoughts on FreeBSD?

I will look into tekthing, threatwire and hack5 sometime. Thanks for the recommendation!

Nice to hear from you too buddy! I am doing well right now, I hope you are doing well too! :)
AbhLeaderKrelian Jun 21, 2016 12:57 PM
Also, great job with the Year of Lupin reviews you got going! :)
AbhLeaderKrelian Jun 21, 2016 12:56 PM
Hey it's been awhile since I last sent a comment, and I have been rewatching some of your videos, in particular the "Mac vs. PC" one from June 2015. Since you are a tech guy, what are your thoughts on the Windows 10 privacy controversy? I am not sure if you actually use Windows 10, but how much power do you think a company like Microsoft or Apple should have over their users? Do you think it's okay for them to spy on their customers, even if the customers agree to it by clicking the "I Agree" button?

Got any thoughts on the matter?

Oh, silly me. I looked at your channel and saw only the popular posts which are older. I thought you were out of the game
