Sup, everybody and welcome to AnJa 2!! If any of you peeps out there have been wonderin’ what I was up to, this is it. AnJa 2 originally started off as my final project for my web design class. And now, it has become a reality. In other words, it’s alive!!! So enjoy that fresh browser smell and look around my site. You may even learn a thing or two.

Now if you look hard enough, you may notice that I have taken off the TTGC from the site. Never fear! The reason I did this is simple, really. 1, to avoid copycats and such, and 2, because I’ll be working on bringing at least one fully-fledged episode to the site for your viewing pleasure. Who knows? If things go smoothly, then you may even get an e-comic! But I’m getting ahead of myself..

Well, everyone. This is where I leave you. Take care now!

Hello all you AnJaholics! I have come back to reek havoc into your monitors once again! You’ve probably seen one of the major updates to the site already. Unfortunatly, I had to part ways with the “Head Like A Hole” streaming video *snif*. It gave my browsers (yes, as in more than one browser) massive gas. So I added a Flash video of the Napoleon Dynamite Numa Numa Dance. I also added another funny Flash video for the Navi called Not Another Mortal Kombat Spoof. I also added a new feature to our very own Whuzzupp page. I have the 2004 and 2005 updates split into two separate pages. And I gave the ’05 page a brand-spanking new Guile Theme (he’s from Street Fighter II).

I also added a new setup to the Trigun, Lupin III, and Excel Saga Sections, including new theme songs. Unfortunatly they’re MIDI. I can’t use my files at Tripod anymore because I’m doing something called remote loading, which is when you store a file on one web host (Tripod) and stream it to another (Geocities), thus reducing your data transfer limit well below what it would be if you had the file saved and transfered within the same web host. Remote loading is against the Terms and Agreement for both Tripod and Geocities. So if any of you guys are watching, forgive me, for I knew not what I did.

And in other news, tommarrow is the one-year anniversary of the creation of AnJa.com (well, at the time it was “Andy’s Ultimate Site of Ultimatness”). Can you believe it?!

By the way, mark your calendars because ALL-NEW EPISODES OF FAMILY GUY AND AMERICAN DAD ARE COMING TO FOX MAY 1ST!!!! No, I didn’t bump into my Caps Lock button if you were wondering. I’m really anxious to see those episodes!!

Well, kids. It’s time for me to hit the ol’ dusty trail. I’ll see you when I look at ya!

Hey guys, guess what? I’m back! After a month of dealing with death (my step-aunt, my car, and my grandma-all within 2 weeks), I have finally returned!

So what have I been doin’ for nearly a month that would keep me from updating my site? Well, workin’ for extra cash for that car payment, that’s what! Anyway, the tourney before last week’s (I totally forgot about last week’s) saw my defeat at the hands of Ryan once again. Oh, I’m mad at that guy! Luckly, Alex beat him using some insane combos. I think that I might need to restructure my deck if I have any chance of beating him. But I don’t know.

I also watched all of the episodes in the 1st and 2nd seasons for Ranma 1/2. I also got Seasons 3 & 4 and I’m trying to convert them to MPEGs so I can watch them on my DVD player.

Well, I’d better get goin’. Later days!

Sup, everybody! I have some good news. Well, it looks like my move to Tripod was a bit premature. I have decided to stay here on Geocities. I’m now having my large music files on Tripod directed here to free up space (which, by the way, royally messes with the structure of the page).

In other news, my 2nd interview with Wal-Mart was last Thursday and while it was a tad rocky, I think I hit it off pretty well with my interviewer, Matthew, who actually graduated from the same ITT Tech that I’m going to right now! He majored in Multimedia. He said that due to the massive amount of people sending in their apps, it might be from 1 week to 1 1/2 weeks before anyone would call me to set up my 3rd & final interview. I called up the hiring center on Sunday and they told me (very rude-like, I might add) that it’s not open today and to call back tommorrow. So, I did. And I was redirected to the Wal-Mart training center because I guess the area the hiring center was located at cost too much for rent so they moved somewhere else. Anyway, I called them and they said pretty much the same thing that Matthew did. Oh, well. At least I made myself known. I’ll give them a call back either this coming Thursday or Friday.

Last Friday was the start of Season Two of the King of Games Tournament. Unfortunatly, I was unable to come due to lack of parental approval because they were out & about. Ben had broken out of retirement and dueled. I’m not sure if it was a one-time deal or what. More to come on that issue. Anyway, I believe Ryan won that one, again. He is beginning to annoy me. The first time I dueled him, I had previously beaten a bunch of newbies, so my guard was down because I thought that Ryan was having beginner’s luck. I could have beaten him twice, but I held back. The next time we duel, I will go all out. No holding back. Now that I know his strategies, I will crush him in the next duel. Which is, if I’m not mistaken, next Friday. I am ready for you, Ryan. But the question is, are you ready for me? I am the Season 1 winner of the King of Games Tournament. I have beaten the best to earn my spot: Eric, Ben, Jake, and Alex B. I’ve beaten them all. And when the Tournament of Champions rolls around, I will retain my title as King of Games. So set your calandar for next Friday. Because I’m coming. And I’m bringing my A-game with me.

Well, now that I got that out of the way, I have more good news. I received my Ranma 1/2 DVDs last Thursday. Huzzah! As of this update, I’m up to only Disc 3 of 5. There are about 13 or so episodes per disc. I will definatly get the next set when I can.

Update-wise, unless you count the new location of my large music files, none really. Now that I know I’m staying here on Geocities, I will bring you more updates as I can. Until then, have a good one!

Hi, everybody! Well folks, it has come down to this: I’m deciding to move my site. No, please. Don’t cry. I’ll still be around. I’m moving my site over to Tripod so the Internet midgits will leave me alone. Actually, it’s more of a bandwidth issue.

You see, this site only allows a daily bandwidth of 15MB. It sounds like a lot, but it’s not when you break it down. According to Geocities.com, data transfer, or bandwidth, is measured by the amount of data that is retrieved by the server whenever you open up a webpage. For example, my Excel Saga section, probably the biggest section I have because of the spiffy background theme. The page itself is only a mere 5KB. But when you load the page, not only is that loaded, but the background theme and the picture are loaded too. Together, it totals a whopping 1,437KB, or 1.44MB everytime that page is loaded. Let’s do the math, shall we? My bandwidth is 15MB a day. That means that in order to shut my site down for an hour, you would have to go to the Excel Saga page at least 11 times a day, and it will only successfully load it 10 times out of those 11. That’s Geocities.com. Tripod, on the other hand, offers a 1GB monthly bandwidth. That’s 33 1/3MB a day on average (if every month had 30 days); over twice the amount of bandwidth of Geocities.com. Now do you see why I’m moving?

Anyway, as for updates, technically none for this site. I spent all day moving all of my crap from here to my Tripod site. It’s not up yet, as I have to change all the hyperlinx and all that happy bulls**t so you can look through my site. Since it took me a good whole day just moving everything, it will be a while before I can link everything together and make the move complete. Which means that it will be a while before I shut this site down.

In other news, my final for XML was today and I think I did good. I won’t know until I find out my grade on it. But, I’m doing fairly well in that class anyway; so I’m not too worried. It’s Day 1 of possibly 3 that I’ll have to wait for my DVDs. I still can’t wait for them to come in!!

Well, I got to go. Later days!

Whuzzupp!!! I’ve done some major, MAJOR updating!! I’ve added the Trigun, Lupin III, and Excel Saga sections like I promised. Not too much to them yet. More to come.

I’ve finally figured out how to add MP3s without exceeding my data transfer limit. I can’t say how, or else I might get in trouble and everybody will copy off of me.

My interview with Wal-Mart went well. I’m going in for my second interview Thursday at 1pm. I can’t wait!!

I recently received an e-mail from MegAnimeDVD.com saying that my money order came in and my DVDs are on their way. They should be in within the week, like Friday or something.

Well, it’s time for me to leave you all. See ya later!!

Hey what’s goin’ on, y’all? In a decision that I’ve been contemplating for a while, I’ve decided to add 3 (count ’em, three) new sections to AnJa: the Trigun, Lupin III, and Excel Saga sections. Once again, it will be a while before they are fully operational. But fear not! I’ll work on bringing them up as soon as I can.

In other news, my interview for Wal-Mart is today. I hope I get the job soon because McDonald’s is wearing at my last nerve.

I’m also putting up a prototype logo for AnJa on the Index and Navi pages. Enjoy!

Hey all you cats out there in Web-Land! I didn’t do too much on the site today. All I did was work on some more characters for the Ranma 1/2 section.

But in other news, my room is completed!!! Quan-Su, Dude! *Umm, don’t ask.* I moved all my stuff into it during the week after the paint dried on Saturday. It is DA BOMB!! I also ordered those Ranma 1/2 DVDs on Tuesday via my secret wad o’ money. I expect them to be here by next week. I also got 10 blank DVD+RWs so I can super-gank Eric’s Excel Saga!! I also bought the new Yu-Gi-Oh! game, 7 Trials to Glory: World Championship Tournament 2005. It’s not bad at all. I recommend getting this game. To my immediate knowledge, it’s not at our local Wal-Mart. I got mine from K-Mart for only $30. Speaking of Wally World, they called me and I have an interview with them Monday at 3 pm. I’ll be finally rid of McDonald’s for good!!

That’s all for today, boys and girls! Until next time…uhh…uhh…I forgot what we were doing.

Hi everybody! Well, Alex’s tournament started off today, and I only got 2nd. Oh well. Better luck next time. I just got word from Eric that he has taken over Alex’s tourney and Season 2 will officially start March 4th.

I have done some tweeking to the site, such as updating the Teen Titans Episode Guide and adding more characters to the Ranma 1/2 section. It will definatly take some time before it’s complete.

But my major updates are in the Yu-Gi-Oh! section. I added the updated checklist for Dark Revalation 1 and new sneek peeks for Dark Revalations 2, Dark Beginning 2, and the Scorched Earth Structure Deck. They’re da bomb!

In other news, my room will be up sooner than expected. Instead of starting on it Sunday, it will be Saturday. Huzzah! I’ll have to pick up some paint after I decide on a good color. After it completly dries, I’ll start the tedious process of moving all my crap into the room.

Well, it’s time to say goodbye for today. Check out Wednesday’s update for a special surprise if you can find it (hint: Strike Him!). Until next time, peace out.

Hey, hey, hey! I have opened the doors to the Ranma 1/2 Section! Huzzahh!! Unfortunatly, all I have is the Episode Guide completed. The Character Guide will take some time to complete, but I’ll let you look at what I have so far. As for the Episode Reviews, I’ll do them when I see the episodes myself which, unless something happens, will be whenever my DVDs come in. I’ll send the money order this coming Wednesday when I get paid, which means that it will come in 3 days after the money order is received. If you’re wondering, I’m ordering off of MegAnimeDVD.com. Check it out sometime.

In school, I managed to complete my group project. Well, sort of. I sent it to Steve (at my school) to link it to everyone else’s projects and to revise any errors on coding, so we’ll see the results next Wednesday.

You know guys, I’ve been thinking. When I was working on the Ranma 1/2 Section, I was thinking of adding more sections to AnJa. Some examples I came up with are sections on Excel Saga, Trigun, Lupin III, and Nine Inch Nails. So, what do you think? E-mail me with your suggestions. Check my About Me Section for Contact Info.

And that’s all she wrote for today. TTFN: Ta-Ta For Now! (yeah, I know that Tigger says it. So what?)
