Questions for my Readers: Uncategorized

Isn't LOG HORIZON supposed to be out this season? Did it not get picked up by an English Language streaming service? 

What's y'alls recommendation for a VPN?

Any good shows running now that don't involve giving money to Disney?

Ordinarily, when thinking of concealed carry, I assume .380 ACP (9mm Cort). However, unforeseen circumstances have caused me to become very interested in .32 ACP. Are there any reliable defensive loads in that caliber? 

Is it safe yet to upgrade to Big Sur? Also, given that I skipped Catalina because of the horror stories,  can I upgrade straight from Mojave?

When you eat taoyaki, do you truly appreciate the effort that went into preparing it?

1 I don't think Log Horizon got picked up.  Certain Kick Ass Jolly folk have Rogered the need and been supplying on their streaming/DL site.  It's been decent so far, with an arc about the evolving politics of Akiba and another about what's been happening with Krusty, Kanami, and co. 
For VPNs, I've been running NordVPN and been decently satisfied.

2 It's on Funimation. I haven't been following it, since I never got very far in season 2 for some reason. animeschedule.net has good listings of what streams where.

And you stole a picture I was planning to use next week, darnit. :-)

3 Related, I don't plan to upgrade to Big Sur, although my work Mac will get it soon; I consider Catalina to be nearly out of beta. Apple's updaters will probably only offer to take you straight to the latest BS, although as always, multiple independent backups are a must.

 I consider Catalina to be nearly out of beta

Heh. Yeah. That's my take too.

5 I don't know anything about .32 beyond what I learned watching Chris Baker videos, but its performance in Ellifritz report is rather dubious.

6 Yes, Log Horizon S3 is licensed by arguably my least favorite anime licensor in North America.  They even have Chris Sabat working on the dub.  Joy.

7 Oh.


Among the reasons I still have a Crunchyroll membership is because Log Horizon was coming out and I wanted to support non-Funimation companies.

8 With 32 ACP I would stick to ball ammo to get any kind of penetration.

9 The commonly expressed sentiment about that ball ammo is also discussed in the video that I linked above.

10 As far as using Crunchyroll to avoid Funimation goes, I'll just leave this here...

11 Well, poop.

12 Meh, I just discovered that the reason I'd been missing the last few seasons of RWBY is because Roosterteeth took it off their own site and went exclusive with CR.

13 In general, I wouldn't recommend .32. But I have some knowledgeable friends I can ask.

Being a real niche cartridge though, don't expect to find any ammo until WELL after the shortage is over.

14 well, .32 FMJ ball ammo falls well inside my personal parameters, which are pretty much "something is better than nothing" with a dose of "so, Smart Person, would you be willing to stand in front of this woefully ineffective cartridge when it is discharged ?". Mrs Garply has carried an old Walther PP in .32 for many years, and because it fits her hand well and she finds it easy to control, her shot placement is scary good. As regards ball ammo, the Fiocchi 73 grain load has real good word-of-mouth, and I own a few boxes of it which have functioned flawlessly so far, but then so has all of the W-W and Remington we have run through it.
for "defensive" ammo in .32 there is a Hornady loading with a 60 grain ETX hollowpoint that I have seen and fired.     might be others, don't know for sure.

15 Fiocchi 73gr was the best in the Lucky Gunner test, too. But I just looked through my sources and indeed .32 ACP is impossible to get. I thought the situation with .380 ACP was bad, but this is on another level.
