I was excited to see this today:
However, upon further inspection, I was left disappointed in the product selection.
I am not surprised that they do not ship to the USA, but am a little disappointed, as I won't be able to even get the Hatena shirt.
I would totally spring for a Hatena hoodie! Or some old merch from Flipnote Hatena...
I've submitted many appeals to Google in the past, but this one I will be making public as well. This is the content of the Adsense ban appeal that I've just submitted.
We're coming up on the seven-and-a-half year mark from when my Adsense account was disabled. I've submitted several appeals, each one denied, and am once again submitting my appeal due to insufficient information provided in your previous responses.
I was fourteen years old then, and just getting into a new hobby of taking apart Nintendo devices and learning about how they work, and decided to start a blog about it. With the help of my parents, I was able to get Adsense set up! It was a pretty exciting time for me...until the Adsense account got disabled.
I was able to work out that a well-meaning friend of mine decided to click on the ads a large number of
times. This led to my Adsense account getting disabled, which although upsetting, did not affect my greatly as I was just a kid between middle and high school.
Times are different now. For several years, I have been growing and fully financially supporting a large community of artists and animators, as well as working on preserving their defining moments in the form of Flipnotes from Flipnote Hatena. As time went on, and the traffic and server demands grew, the financial demands grew as well. As I've expanded and grown, I've tried to motivate people to donate, but had very little consistent success. I needed something more consistent.
I tried Project Wonderful ads, which were not successful. I submitted many appeals but had each turned down without sufficient explanation or information.
I'm in debt now. I'm struggling to pay between $250-275 each month for server bills, and to pay off the hard drives I purchased to archive content from Flipnote Hatena ($1000 - 23 TB of content). I have credit card debt and car payments as well. I need help, desperately, especially when we finish reverse-engineering Nintendo's format so that I can make all of the archived content available to people to watch again, thus preserving the history.
I must beg of you again to please take into consideration the community that I've put years of my life into growing, with my time, my love, and a serious chunk of my finances.
Please let me do my best to grow the community of Sudomemo and of Flipnote Hatena. Please let me do what I need to do to lighten the financial burden that I have to struggle with. For the sake of the entire Sudomemo and Flipnote artist community, please responsibly consider this appeal so that I can reach towards my dream of having the site sustain itself, and towards being free from debt.
I believe that a human life is worth more than all the money in the world.
I pray for the soul of Mr. Hagex, who was taken from this world at the hands of another man who was burning with hatred.
I pray for the soul of the man who has taken Hagex from his family, from the readers of his blog, and from those who benefitted from Hagex's work and career.
For I also believe that no soul is unable to be redeemed from the darkness and evil that consumes it.
Redemption starts with forgiveness, and continues with repentance.
At first, all was well. I was enjoying my new cell phone. However, it that enjoyment didn't last long. For one, that particular model has a terrible kernel bug in which Android's memory management doesn't work properly, leading to apps dying and being closed while you try to work. The keyboard being killed, and apps being killed while using the file upload handler, are two of the most annoying ones. Sometimes the phone will entirely stop responding for seconds at a time. This issue is not specific to Republic Wireless.
Nowadays, I'm often missing calls. My phone simply does not ring. Sometimes a few minutes later I get a missed call notification; or a voicemail, and am baffled as to how I missed the call.
We're working on the nbf top-screen background format used on Flipnote Hatena.
We're making some progress.
The nbf files appear to be composed of three sections. Hatena seems to have reused what I call the ugomenu format; which is also used for the menus on Flipnote Hatena. The first 0x16 bytes of any ugomenu usually contains:
- 0x4 -The ugomenu magic ("UGAR").
- 0x4 32-bit little-endian unsigned integer specifying the number of sections within the container.
After this, for however many entries specified above: 0x4 uint32 LE specifying the length of each entry.
For the nbf files, this header totals 0x16 bytes.
After the header comes palette data, and after that, a bitmap image. What we're currently trying to do is convert the palette to a format that TiledGGD likes; however, we're not quite there yet.
If I remember correctly, the image displayed above, both on the left, and the representation on the right is the art of id:chira_rhythm55, the Flipnote Hatena theme artist.
I eventually hope to be able to create custom images and convert back and forth between the .nbf format and a regular image format, such as PNG.
Have a nice day, and thank you for reading :)
My Nintendo DSi was stolen several weeks ago. I've given up hoping it'll be turned in to Lansing Community College Public Safety and will be putting up STOLEN posters soon offering a reward upon return. I'm done fooling around hoping someone will just turn it in. Thievery is wrong and I intend to recover my system.
It's a commonly known fact that when people keep us as pets, they feed us a dry thing that keeps us alive, but tastes like crap. This is called, "cat food". Obviously, we eat a bit when the humans are around, but when they aren't? Crack open that refrigerator baby.
Anyway, I was absolutely starving and owner hasn't refilled my (cough cough) cat food dish sitting on the floor, and is instead with his buddies, watching the people on the magic wall, called the "Netflicks". Okay. There is a plate with most delicious, spicy, hot wings known to anyone. I wanted in on that action, baby, I needed that. So I jumped onto the chair, and got ready to jump onto the table for a quick hit-and-run mission, when
Just as I jump off the chair at the table, owner drops something in the other room and I mistime the jump, sending the chair toppling backwards as I fly - yup - into the punchbowl on the table. That stuff is strong, baby, and bright-red and ice-cold. Tastes good, but when you're soaking in the stuff, yuck. The punch swamps the various morsels of food on the table, including the coveted hot wings. The carpet is soaked. I ran off before owner could come after me, and I'm hiding from him as I type this.
Ohhhh man I'm in for it now.
WHAT DO I DO GUYS
