Well, I spoke too soon.

On Thursday my car broke down. Specifically, the brake light went out, the battery died (permanently) and my wonderful dad who came and replaced the two told me my emergency brake is shot & not to park on any hills....So, that took an entire day and some money to fix. The emergency brake is still shot though. I should mention, the full gage and air condition also do not work. *sigh* I need a new car.

On Friday a job I spoke to months ago emailed and asked for a resume and application turned in ASAP if I was still interested. Good news, but that took time.

And today, when I was planning on finishing and uploading episode 4....I discovered that somehow I had DELETED all the timings. Yup, you read that right. My 90% complete episode 4 somehow lost ALL TIMINGS - they're a bunch of zeros. I mean, I did update my version of the program I'm using but what - how -


The epsiode is done but no timings. So, I am currently moving each line, one by one, into a new Japanese sub file with timings. And, of course, recreating all the timing adjusts I did while translating.

So....that's it, right universe? I'm begging. I just want an un-eventful week and a safely completed episode 4. Please????

NOTE  - Epsiode 4 has around 610 lines. I need to move and double check/fix the timing on each line. Usually I check timing as I go, so I don't have an estimate for how long it will take. I've got the first 15 minutes done (roughly 1/3 of the episode), which took over an hour. This is still MUCH faster than re-timing from scratch.

 So, almost there, but I wasn't able to finish tonight :'(


  1. Ah yes. Real life has many ups and downs otherwise things would become boring. Do not fret. I for one appreciate that you are persevering in subbing this drama. Do not feel pressure to maintain any schedule. I can wait until you have the free time to keep this project moving.

    Thank you for your work so far.

  2. Sorry to hear about all the unlucky things that is happening to you. Throw salt over both shoulders. And, I wish you luck in getting the job. (^__^)
