Well it has been a while since I had last posted but I’ve been pretty busy lately and had a massive computer failure with my custom pc gaming PC. I will go into more details on that a bit later as soon as I get all the images of the new build. I will say I had to replace almost every single component but the tower case.

I also start my master program here on August 16, 2015 which I’m nervous and excited. I’ve been having to get some tests done before I start class but with the computer failure and still having a lot of issues with sitting for a long period of time. I haven’t even had a chance to look for grant and scholarships yet to try and get as mush of my schooling paid for. but that hasn’t happened yet. I also have to get a ergonomic chair with full support for my back as mentioned in a previous post I have upper and lower back issues from a car accident where I was hit by a FEDEx van at 60 mile per hour or at least that what the driver had said to the Sheriff that showed up to the accident scene. This happened in 2012 and sucks ass as I still have lots of problems because of this shit.

Sorry just frustrated with the situation.

Anyways, that kind of what has been going on. I will be posted about my computer build here soon as I have a bunch of image of my first computer rebuild. I had gutted everything out and got images of each.

Thanks for reading

Well I haven’t posted in a while and decided to as I’m waiting for more back up disc to burn for the data I had recovered off a computer that had got a pretty nasty little virus in which someone else had tried to fix it and ended up erasing the whole documents & settings folder. The computer was having issue booting up to begin with where it would attempt to ruin start up repair. So it began as a computer virus remove and turned in to data recovery which I knew is what was going to happen. I started the work on this computer issue I believe sometime in the beginning of last week. First I attempted to try and getting the computer to boot into safe mode/recovery mode and it was a no go. To top off the issue I couldn’t find the button to eject the disc so that I could put in a Puppy Linux disc and try to see if I can at least see the files. So I ended up creating a Puppy Linux boot USB flash drive and attempted the same thing that I would have done if I used the Puppy Linux disc. Got it to boot Up with a few key presses and saw that the entire documents & settings folder what missing or corrupted with a yellow triangle with exclamation point. So I know I have a better program I can use on my windows computer for recovering corrupt/deleted data but didn’t have the cable to connect a SATA HDD via USB. So I had to order a cable just for that and ended up find one that supports not just SATA HDD but 2.5 and  3.5 IDE HDD. I also do SD card data recovery for my business Rutakus. Anyways I found that it takes a long time to recover data where I end up having to put a fan on my laptop and the HDD in order to keep it cool. I had done this with s a Toshiba Satellite L505. Not a bad laptop but not for task such as this and I would have done it with my desktop computer but I had a power supply failure and still waiting for my new power supply in.
Thank for reading.

Well it’s been a minute since I last posted. I’ve been in a bit of pain and what not, but I’ve also been trying to get my school stuff squared away. For those that don’t know I have got accepted into the Masters program at Colorado Technical University’s online program. it’s actually a Master’s in Science with a major in Business Administration.

Anyways, I was going through some of my old files on an external hard drive of mine and found a bunch of my old music that I created with my computer using various DAW and sequencing software such as Fruity Loops Studio, Ableton Live, Techno eJay, ReBirth 2.0 and other Propellerhead’s software.

My independent music label is called Productions of the Human Mind, which is more of a creative label type thing that I will be using for all my hobbies things. But it will be sponsored by my computer repair business, Rutakus.net. But I don’t create this music for money, that’s why I’m allowing it to be downloaded and shared. But I do accept donations as I don’t do this music as much any more as mentioned in a previous post about my car accident.

If you like my music feel free to make a donation by clicking the button below. The the donations are most-likely going into my business to help it stay alive while I’m going through my physical disability.

Like my music please donate here as I offer all my music for free: https://www.gofundme.com/f/rust-of-all-tradesrutakus
Anyways here is the link to my folder where you can download each of my tracks. You can also share them with others as well. Thank you.

So as mentioned my introduction post I’ve been dealing with a back/neck/spinal injury from a car accident I had got into back on Oct 20, 2012 which was 8 days before my birthday. So needless to say my birthday is sometimes hard to deal with as a lot of things that I like to do are limited and/or can’t even do anymore at this time.

Anyways, I’ve been dealing with this injury for a long time. I tried and have gone through multiple treatments and tried just about everything. I find that there are a few things that work but only work partly. When it comes down to I prefer to stay as holistic/natural as possible. But the problem with that is that most insurance companies don’t like stuff like chiropractic and massage therapy. Or acupuncture which I have not tried yet as I will most likely have to pay for it out of my pocket. I have done chiropractic and massage therapy which I had to stop because of reasons I’ve been advised not to discuss but I will say that my insurance company is covering my medical bills right now though some thing I had to have covered by Washington Apple Health. I will say I’m not happy with my insurance company. But that will be all I say at this time. I’m back into my chiropractic treatment again but I’m only able to afford once a week at this time as I’ve been paying for it out of my pocket. I’ve gone through multiple injections like nerve blocks and trigger point injections, a few different prescriptions but I would like to get off it as now it feel like a band-aide and I feel it is making symptoms worse and/or causing new ones. At this time I only take Nortriptyline 25mg nightly which is suppose to help me sleep which had done so in the beginning. I take a lot of herbal supplements like triphala power, turmeric to help with going to the bathroom and inflammation. This does help too. But I’ve also been doing a lot of research in to other alternative holistic healing methods.

So long story short I will say that at the current standing I have multiple bulging disc from my neck down to my lumbar area. There also a disc degeneration in the lumbar area and a facet degeneration in cervical spine. I also have an EMG coming up to see if I have any nerve damage and such.

I will say that today I’m having a bit of a hard time and it’s even hard to sit here and type this post. My pain scale is 7 and I feel really nauseated like I’m going to throw up.

Well thanks for reading though I don’t care if you read this or not. This blog is more for myself then anything.

This may be old news to some and I known about this as well for a while. But I think that it’s still worth sharing.

Anyways, as some may know and for those who don’t, a while back the Gundam 30 year Anniversary website announced a life size Gundam robot about 59 feet tall to be build in “Shiokaze Park on Odaiba island” located Tokyo, Japan. This had been annouced back in March and was finished in June of this year. This life size statue is based off of “RX-78-2 Gundam” from the first Gundam anime series from 1979 (the year I was born XD).

In my opinion I think this is pretty cool consider I’ve only watched one of the series and much enjoyed it. I guess I’m a big mecha themed anime fan XD. Anyways I kind of figured that it wouldn’t be that long before there would be a life size mecha built before too long. Although, there were other large size mecha status built before, but nothing as tall as the “RX-78-2 Gundam”

So I haven’t posted anything here for a good while. And I’m sorry about that although, its not like a lot of people actually sit and read it. But anyways, I’ve been quite busy with job hunting and working contracted IT/Computer jobs. I’ve also been working on an anime/manga website that I’m hoping to have online sometime soon. This site will have a forums, downloads section, and blog like news posting and such. My site will be basically a CMS (Content Managment System) website. As I’m still doing a lot of the configuration with the site and database. I’m not ready to put it up online yet. Plus I’m still working on getting the funds to pay for 5 months of web hosting (currently looking at different hosting services)XD. So with this said I’m not sure if I will keep this blog up since I will be posting most o my posts there. But I might just keep this one running and double post news items on both. I will probably keep this blog running though, but I think I will need to give it make over. I will probably just design a new layout from scratch.

Other updates I finished watching all the animes in that I had posted it my last post back in February; Soul Eater, Witchblade, REC, Hell Girl, Code Geass R2. Well actually I haven’t finished watch Bleach just yet as it is still on-going. But in fact I actually finished quite a few other animes as well, I’ve almost watch 100 different animes, I’ve actaully at about 96 as you can see from this old post which I keep updating Animes I have completed, but once I have 100 on that list I will stop updating it and just create a new post for each 10 after. Some of those animes in that list I really don’t recommend as they are kind of crappy. For example Psychic Wars and MD Geist II: Death Force were not that great, in fact they were garbage. The only reason I sat and watch them was just to say that I have seen them. I will never watch them again though.

Last piece of updates I had beaten God of War for the PS2 for the first time. I beat it on easy, now I working on beating it on the normal difficulty. I’m also very close to beating Resident Evil 4 on the Ps2 as well. I think that I’m currently on Chapter 5-2.

Well that is it for the moment. Thanks for reading

The North American anime distributor Funimation has confirmed at the Ohayocon event on Saturday that it has acquired the Fullmetal Alchemist: Premium Collection original video animation (OVA) set. Funimation will release the set on a single DVD in late 2009. According to Funimation’s Adam Sheehan, the DVD will include “everything that was on the Japanese DVD release — uncut, subbed, and dubbed.”

The Premium Collection’s Japanese release features the “Seven Homunculi VS State Alchemists” short and three DVD shorts that shipped after the 2005 Fullmetal Alchemist movie: “Live Action,” “Chibi Party,” and “Kids.” These shorts were the last animated footage created for the Fullmetal Alchemist “dark fantasy” franchise — at least, until this coming April, when the new television adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa’s original manga premieres. Extras include a picture gallery, bonus clips from the Universal Studios Japan amusement park’s Fullmetal Alchemist Premiere Tour, and closing credits that feature a dancing Alphonse Elric character…….Read More

I think this I pretty cool although these OVA seem kind of short. Anyways, I would probably buy this collection anyways just to have it because I just that way XD. I actually have not see these Fullmetal OVAs yet and may have to check them out. Anyways I thought this was something I would share with anyone read this blog.

After a long awaited time I finally got my first anime box set. My older sister got it for me for my birthday and just got it at around Christmas time. I got all the episodes of Elfen Lied on two dvd disc. Basically I got the box set known as the “Perfect Collection” with all 13 episodes and some of the art work in the extra section of the DVD menu—I think. I haven’t gone through everything in the menus yet. Below are a few images I have taken of this box set. It nothing really special but I love this series.

(This is the front of the DVD case)

(This is the back side of the Elfen Lied boxset)

(Finally the inside of the Elfen Lied box set with the two dvds. First dvd has episodes 1-10, second dvd has episodes 11-13.)

Last thing I would like to mention is that I also got a Naruto 2009 calender for Christmas. But to tell you guys that truth I haven’t watched Naruto yet. I still like the calenders though. Here is the front of the calender.
