How to Force Nico Nico Douga to Play Its Video in Low Quality

Or, as they called it, "Economy Mode".

So, let's say you want to watch some videos in Nico Nico Douga, the Japanese version of Youtube. But then, you realize that your computer happens to be crappy! And what's more, you're trying to watch them late at night, too. That means, like it or not, you have to watch them in high quality, and that also means your computer is going to lag!

"Oh no! This can't be! What should I do now?!" you ask yourself.

Well, it's actually fairly simple.


See the link above? Let's assume that this is the video that you're going to watch. But obviously, you'd want to watch it in low quality. So, how do you do that exactly?

Like this.


See, simple as that.

However, while doing this is as easy as finding a generic love-comedy harem manga in a manga site, the downside is that every time you want to watch another video, you have to do that again, and again, and again. And at the moment of writing this, I still haven't found any other ways to do this.

So yeah - either just suck it up, or buy a better computer already.

Happy New Year 2014

Well, I guess this is it. A year has passed, and the sound of new year fireworks just keep getting louder and louder outside my house. God damn it man don't you know I'm listening to music here?!

Oh wait, that's not it. Sorry about that.

As I was saying, a year has passed without me realizing it that much. It's time to say goodbye to the year 2013, and begin a new chapter of this thing called 'real life' with 2014. Happy birthday world, and happy new year everyone! Hopefully this year will also be my (and your) lucky year!

Yeah, it's already new year here in Indonesia.

Things Mr. Outsider is Not Allowed to Do in Gensokyo (1-15)

1. No matter how hot the day is, I can't use Cirno as a substitute of air conditioner.
2. Nor can I use ghosts during winter.
3. While it's a pain in the arse, I will make sure to remember Keine's surname.
4. Telling Shinmyoumaru to grant all my wishes leads to a huge consequence.
5. Suika's horns are not to be sucked.
6. If it involves missing items, Nazrin is not a walking metal detector.
7. Getting rid of Shiki's bullets by simply eating them proved to be impractical, unless I'm Yuyuko.
8. Donating a ten million Zimbabwe dollar to the shrine is a downright retarded idea.
9. Every time I reached the ninth point, I'm no longer allowed to make that joke.
10. Yelling, "Toki wo tomare!" every time Sakuya activates her spell card, while awesome, is discouraged.
11. Miko's hair doesn't resemble animal ears, no matter how much I pray.
12. If in case Iku is making an appearance, I won't hum to Night Fever.
13. I'm not allowed to accidentally shoot my ally in a danmaku duel.
14. Dropping a Nokia 3310 is not a valid excuse to cause an earthquake in Gensokyo.
15. Even if I find Kasen's repetitive nagging to be boring, I can't just retort by saying, "Whoa, Japanese is so difficult, I can't understand any of it."

Youtube is on The Way to Destruction

It's been a rather tiring day at school today, and right now I'm in the mood to watch (and/or listen to) something on YouTube. So without any further ado, I turn my computer on and wait until it finishes booting properly.

That being done, I click on my browser and type in "www.youtube.com." Okay, let's see... one of my subscription has uploaded a new video! Sweet! And the video is good, too, as usual. Let's check out the comments from other vie-






Waitwaitwait what? What the hell happened? Why does the comment section now look like a certain social networking service? Did I mistype the URL, somehow?

Oh, wait. No. Google has changed YouTube's design again. For the umpteenth time already, I guess? I've already lost count since then. Are they really that desperate to change this site to look that similar to those social networking sites? I mean, geez. Not to mention that I rather dislike social networks.

*sigh* I guess I'll just suck it up and adapt to it, again. But well, at least I can still comment normally, right?



Dear Google, I think I've had enough of your shittery.

First of all, you were (always) fucking around with my Youtube account by frequently giving me a notice to use my Google's profile name for my channel's name, in which I would usually click on the close button and then you would always say, "OK, we'll ask again later." Fortunately that didn't happen so often, so at least I still had my tiny bit of patience.

But unfortunately, that tiny bit of patience of mine doesn't last long, as this bullshit happens.

Seriously, Google? Now in order for me to comment on a video, I have to join your shitty ass sad excuse of a social network community? Is that it? All I want do is watch stuff, comment, and do anything else in a one, single site - called YouTube. Is that really so much to ask? Duh, of course it is. Because you just had to fuck everything up with your constant updates; in which you would call it "improvements to help things easier for the user." Well no shit. You just made things way worse and worse than before. And you're practically digging a deeper hole now. Nice job, Google.

And while I'm still at this topic, I also want to say that - among the features that you've come up with, I always liked the one that allows me to view the comment that a comment is replying to with just a single click. So, why do I feel the need to mention this? Fuck, I dunno. It's not like you removed that feature in particular, right?

By the way, keep in mind that I'm still resisting the urge to caps lock this whole post.

Anyway, back to what I was saying; Google+ should be a CHOICE, not a fucking REQUIREMENT. There are lot more things that I want to complain, but to begin with, Google+ is already so inconvenient to use. I've tried it, at least. And fortunately there exists a feature to disconnect the link.

But then again, it's pointless now that you have to connect to Google+ in order to comment anyway! I mean, geez! I've even got two of them! (And I heard that a few people have three or more of them. Goodness gracious.)

I've said this before, and I will say it again. I just want to watch stuff, comment, and do anything normally on Youtube. I don't give a shit about any of this social ass crack. Why the fuck do these assholes force this pathetic attempt to surpass Facebook down my (and any other people's) fucking throat?

Face it, Google. People like Youtube for what it is. It is merely the opinion of mine as one among the Youtube users that Google+ is a complete utter failure, and that the ones who came up with the whole idea of forcing the users to join Google+ should go fuck themselves with a nearby baton. I personally recommend a nunchaku, as it's much stronger compared to the baton, should it break during the action.

Last but not least; fuck you, Google and everything you stand for.

How to Piss Off Touhou Fans

A few hours ago, I accidentally found myself in a 'U.N. Owen was Her?' video when I was trying to come up with some inspiration for my Halloween project. Needless to say, it was pretty much filled with the fans who rage, and the trolls who troll.

And then - being a Touhou fan myself, I was wondering, "Is there a list of 'How To Easily Piss Off Any Touhou Fan' anywhere?" But before I realized it, I've already decided to make my own. So here it is, a list of quote that can trigger diehard Touhou fans' berserk button in one way or another.

1. "What anime is this?"
2. "I've finally found Death Waltz!" in a 'U.N. Owen was Her?' video.
3. Or the variant, "This song is actually a remix of Death Waltz."
4. OR the variant, "Stolen from McRoll!"
5. "<insert shmup game here> is harder than Touhou."
6. "I play this game on easy mode."
7. "I only like the fanon."
8. "Ten Desires is so easy, therefore it sucks."
9. あたい = Eye. Like so: "Eye'm the strongest!"
10. "Pfftt... there's such thing as canon in Touhou?"
11. "...since she's Nazrin!"
12. "Aya or Sanae (or both) is a slut."
13. Or maybe, "<insert any touhous except Rinnosuke here> is a slut."
14. "Alice is a tsundere/yandere."
15. "Lazy Meiling is gonna get knifed by Sakuya!"
16. "Mima won't be making an appearance in the next Touhou game."
17. "Tenshi is a masochist."
18. "I recently heard from CNN that this stop motion video is how they made Bad Apple."
19. "Letty is fat."
20. "Hataters gonna Hatate."
21. "ZUN's art is the best art ever!"
22. "Sanae is a good girl."
23. "Pettan, pettan, tsurupettan."
24. "Kaguya is a NEET."
25. "Sakuya, do you wear pads-" *knifed*

I won't be surprised if this list is going to spectacularly backfire on me.

Also, I'll update this when I can find (or think of) more.
