Legit Streaming Anime on Crunchyroll

It’s about time the networks in Japan got a clue and started offering the latest anime series to folks outside of Japan. Beginning January 8th, Japan TV will begin streaming English subtitled episodes of Naruto via the Crunchyroll website. Users will have to subscribe to the show or wait 7-days after the episode airs in Japan to watch it for free. Here’s a blog posting with more information about this and other progress made in the world of on-demand anime.  In general, it looks like Crunchyroll is going legit.  Congratulations Crunchyroll!  I wish them a lot of success and I cheer on people like them who push forward in on-demand digital entertainment in the face of media companies that are slow on the pick-up.

Here’s a link to an earlier posting I did on Crunchyroll.


Home Server Update Pushed Through Updater

Last week I struggled for a few hours to update my home server software. I’m not actually sure I managed to since each time I tried to install the software I would get an error saying I had to delete the old software to install the new. Things got so messed up that I ended up deleting all the software and had to reload my laptop again with the original software which started the whole process again. In the end, my console interface went away, which was a bummer. Anyhow, tonight, the HP Updater had an update for the home server that didn’t barf. I still have no idea, though, whether that was the update that I struggled with last week.
