Watched "The girl who leapt throught time" and enjoyed thuroughly. A great movie, definately in my top five. The plot is interesting - not the usual shounen "beat the opponent only to find a new one". Next up is Summer Wars, which should be good as the director is the same.
Also got to know...
Watched Last Exile and Toradora!. I especially liked the latter one though LE was OK too. I didn't particularly like the ending of LE - otherwise it was solid quality (I think it would've really profited from 720p/1080p).
Watching Monster atm and it's looking good (15/74 eps).
One of my favourite sites announced they were quitting on the april day 3 years ago. Unfortunately that wasn't a joke, and it's still not back. Sooo... thinking about that made me really believe in w1zz's quitting. Not funny at all.
It's supposed to move some of the load (sound does take some horsepower) from the onboard sound to external card which gives a performance boost.
In reality (in my opinion) the performance boost is very neglible and in this case when there isn't any specific need and the onboard sound works...
