So, I'm going to Japan for a four week vacation this summer, mostly staying in Tokyo but also doing a little bit of traveling. Just now I checked if the best band in the world would be touring during this summer, and sure enough they are.

And their gig in Tokyo is a week after I'll have left the country.

No idea what I'm going to do with it, though.

So, I'm currently spending my two week summer vacation in Nippon and thought I could use a little change of pace from monging in Akiba and Comiket all the time. I found out that there was going to be a two hour long firework festival in a remote (read: 70 minutes from Tokyo) town called Kumagaya, so I decided I'll go check it out.

After less than an hour of rockets and squealing Japanese girls the whole thing went from this:

To this:

Doom Builder's broken, and Doom Builder 2 fucking sucks. January 1, 2011, 8:16 am
I was going to make a New year's speedmap late last night when Doom Builder crapped out on me when I tried to save the map, losing an hour of work. Hour's not a pretty big deal, but it was the first time I was able to get time for mapping since October. Then I found out that suddenly DB was no longer able to open any wad files all. I suspect it was because of particular system settings I had changed since last using DB, and which I can't take back because of other programs more important than DB. Mind you, I was still using Doom Builder 1 because it had been much, much better than Doom Builder 2.

Then today I re-installed DB 2 to check if it would work and if it was worth anything at all. Sure, file operations for it worked. But when I tried to map, it's still as fucking horrible as ever:
1) Why the fuck clicking void when you have selected something doesn't deselect the items?

2) Why the fuck pressing insert to add vertex or line just puts the vertex where the cursor is instead of entering a place mode where you THEN click the target spot with the mouse (like in DB1)?

3) Why the fuck linedefs try to snap to vertices when drawing if you aren't fully zoomed in? The whole snap-to thing when drawing fucking sucks.

Okay, 1) and 3) were hidden in the settings, but I can't comprehend why the hell they were set on by default by begin with. Who the fuck wants linedefs stitching to vertices all the fucking time? Who wants to have selected items sticking around all the fucking time? But even if I could fix those, it doesn't help the most important issue which is THE INSERT BUTTON BEING FUCKING RETARDED, slowing mapping process a lot.

There's no way I can map with a program that works in a completely illogical fashion compared to its predecessor, and with DB 1 no longer working for me, fuck this shit.

On January 12th, I'll be leaving to Japan for three months to take part in the JLS Program.
