673rd post: Creation of Ebook version + Renamed first story

Having used my Kindle 4 for half a year already, I enjoyed reading on it. Well, apart from not being able to read in some dark places due to the absence of built-in light, but being able to read under room light without hurting my eyes, or bright sunlight outdoors, which are primary advantages over an LCD screen, are big advantages. Well, the problem with reading my stories on my blog is that it requires a constant internet connection if you were to read more than one part of it. On top of that, neither the desktop nor "mobile versions" (iOS and Android versions actually) offer a comfortable experience of reading because the text is just too small, and zooming in doesn't re-flow the text and requiring to pan around, only to start over when heading to the next page. So, I am proud to announce that I will be making an e-book version of all of my stories (except the 5th story). To make this accessible, I will also include a QR code so that you can use your smartphone to

Alternate Dimension (Part 93)

The first day attending Mizuho's Middle School department has just ended. Due to high demand from other departments and the public, staying at the school's dormitory is discouraged to those born before the "evolution" and know someone related who is also born before that time,  or those who can reach the school within a short time with any transport. Of course, I have my own car, so I'm not staying there. (The concept of family is relatively unknown and non-existent to those born after the evolution, and existing ones are being naturally degraded to something like a group of close friends among existing ones. Well, how exactly do you see a family if everyone in it are now young girls wearing mostly the same outfit behaving alike instead of men and women of various ages with distinct differences?) Because of Mizuho's massive size and the lack of ground transportation infrastructure (apart from rail-based ones), getting to the car park where my car is p

Europe trip: Day 17

Places visited: Venice Marco Polo airport, London Bridge station, Vauxhall station, Westminster palace (Note: this was written on day 29, so details might not be in detail until i have image reference. Day 11, and days 14 through 16, are currently skipped) The last day in Venice, and also the first day (second if you count as transit to Paris) in London. Having a morning flight means that my time in Venice that day is just limited to travelling to the airport. The streets were empty, though as we got closer to the bus terminal (Plaza Roma), there are people walking around to get to work. Not clear which direction as Venice itself is a maze: even narrow passageways can be a major route with many possible routes, and random dead ends. The Venice airport took quite a number of minutes to get to from the main city area. The interior looks like the kind I would expect of an European airport actually. As Italy is part of the Schengen zone, flights to other European countrie
