Ok so this is more of a backlog bc for some reason I couldn't post for a while?
It seems to have to do with the site being hosted by TapaTalk now; the url in the address bar has to be tapatalk.com/groups/tamazone/ for me to be able to post - it won't work when it's tama-zone.com anymore.
Anyway, let's get down to business:
August 23rd 2018
I got Bokuhoshitchi and later Gozarutchi in my 9th generation.
When I married him off to an adorable little Shigurehimetchi (after obtaining all of his happy symbols) they had a little boy together.
... which makes boys for 8 out of 9 generations now x_X
I mean, I'm still far from having had all male adults yet but. Some girls would be nice for a change?
Anyway, I decided to take out the batteries for now.
I might pop them back in once that old irDA phone I ordered arrives (the old USB dongle for my PC doesn't seem to work under Win8 anymore, even though the computer tells me otherwise) to play around with some of the downloads but. We'll see.
I kind of got used to taking a tamagotchi with me to work on slow days, so I woke up Keks again.
He's such a nice low-maintenance guy to keep around and I'm looking forward to him evolving to Nonbiritchi, since I never had that chara before :3
I mentioned in a previous post that I ordered some new tamas and the first of them has finally arrived!
So Cute! I always forget how tiny vintage tamas are until I hold them in my hands X3
My small screwdriver broke tho so I couldn't start it up yet. I ordered one that fits Japanese sized screws as a replacement that had people on amazon mention in their reviews that it's ideal for vintage tamas.
There are three more tamas on their way which I'll possibly show you, too, as soon as they arrive :3
So cya then!
August 25th 2018
Keks evolved! First into Kutchipatchi
and a minute or so later into Nonbiritchi
I haven't taken photos of his animations so far but they're adorable - for example when he brushes his teeth it's actually the bird on his head brushing its beak XD
The new screwdriver arrived and I could finally start up my new P2!
The P2 was the first actual Bandai tama I used to have in the late 90s, although back then I didn't actually like it much bc the characters didn't look like those in the ads and, imo at that time, less cute. What a fool I've been!
My new P2 is a Japanese one btw, and I enjoy watching the little one feast on onigiri a lot bc onigiri is objectively awesome! >:3
The sound chip is a bit broken tho, so the beeps sound somewhat... strangled. But oh well.
On a side note, I so prefer the game on the P2 to the one on the P1, bc it's not just a chance thing if you win or lose. Which makes it feel more like an actual game... but also prevents you from just absentminedly pressing the same button again and again while watching tv, so I guess there are pros and cons to everything XD
Here the little one is after they grew up to Con
(what a little weirdo)
Btw I'm so used to the modern tamas by now that I keep getting confused about the stats not being the first icon and cleaning up not being the third icon ^^' can't tell you how often I've accidentally opened the game when I wanted to flush away their poop instead.
I also just realized the batteries I use might not be as full as I thought - my little buddy is quite transparent if I look at them at a normal angle. Oops? Well, we'll see how long they'll hold out.
Look what also came in the mail!
I've seen so many pictures and videos of nanos already but none of those really prepared me for just HOW TINY THEY ARE!? :O :O :O
what an adorable baby egg he is
So. If I understood that correctly. You have to repeatedly let him die on purpose to get all the characters? XD' I'm gonna do my best lol
September 2nd 2018
While I'm typing this, TamaZone is still buggy for me, still not letting me post or even send messages to the admins ;_; which is kind of a bummer bc logging about my tamas is like, 50% of the whole fun when I'm running them tbh.
I mean, by the time you guys are reading this, IF you're ever reading this, the issue will be resolved, so there's not much use to whining about it I guess BUT I AM WHINING ANYWAY BC THIS IS FRUSTRATING!! DX
*cough* ok, back to my tamas
Keks became father of an adorable little girl I called Sally, who evolved into Mohitamatchi after he left her.
And then I took out the batteries because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
... I revived Joe's kid whom I apparently named Hiiro.
And the little one promptly evolved into Kutchitamatchi.
I think I'm gonna keep him around at least until my new tamas arrive. Whenever that will be. Probably a week or two from now. We'll see.
My P2 evolved into Tongaritchi and I was all like "yuss, who's the best tamagotchi caregiver? me. it's me >:3"
and then I slacked off and now I have this:
Took the battery out of this one, too, since they were already pretty weak to begin with and I'm also out of town for the next couple of days bc work. But it was a neat run, despite the outcome!
Popped some batteries into my iDL to test out the irDA phone I ordered (a Sony Ericsson k220i) and...
... my computer doesn't recognize it when I plug it in via USB. Peachy. So far the only way I managed to transfer iDL stuff onto it is uploading it to the web and then downloading it by visiting the image url in the phone's internet browser. Which only works... occasionally.
But occasionally > not at all, I guess? *tries to be positive*
Maybe I do need to get an extra SIM card (like, prepaid or whatever) for that stupid thing after all so I can send stuff via MMS to myself <_< idk.
But at least the connection between phone and iDL works, so I guess I'm at least one step closer to being able to casually transfer download items like everyone else? ... Ugh. Why can't things just be easy...
I might give it a try on one of the computers on work at some point or the other, too. Maybe.
PS from September 11th:
new stuff arrived! But since I was so bummed out about not being able to post here I didn't really take notes so far, but I'll try to give a recap in my next post!
Until then! :D
