For today, I decided to share some bright themes that work well enough with the E61i. All credit goes to the author only known as Ivanov.

In my unending quest to tide the time while waiting for new chapters of my favorite mangas, I decided to start reading Genshiken, which had already been recommended to me by several people.

Genshiken, by Kio Shimoku, basically chronicles the “exciting” lives of the members of a college club for otakus. The club’s name, of course, is Genshiken, which is short for Gendai Shikaku Bunka Kenkyuu Kai or the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture. Rather than focusing on a specific interest, the club tries to become a converging point for fans of various visual media.


Some more themes for the E61i coming your way! I’ve got blue ones for today.

Can someone say “finally”? That’s pretty much what I said to myself after finding out just now that the 271st chapter of Hunter x Hunter is already available! Heck, I got so excited about this that I decided to post here even before actually reading the new chapter. I’m feeling ecstatic right now because I’ll finally get to read a new chapter months of waiting. Well I don’t think anything can be worse than that time when Togashi-san took a year and a half off. >_<

For some reason, I’ve ended up with several mangas whose chapters take forever to come out, such as Bitter Virgin, Hunter x Hunter, and Gantz. That’s a big reason why I now make sure to only read series that have already been completed.

Anyways, that’s enough babble for now. Though I have been planning to post about Hunter x Hunter, I didn’t intend to end up with a post like this. I guess I’ll just have to do a better one next time. 😛 For now, I’m off to read (and savor) this new chapter.

Update: Okay, that chapter hardly quenched my HxH thirst that had been built up. I hope new chapters will be coming out regularly again.

It has always frustrated me that so many themes for S60 3rd Edition don’t work so well on the E61i because of its landscape orientation. That’s probably why I decided to start sharing some themes I’ve collected that, from my experience, look good on the E61i. I got these themes from various blogs and message boards, so they might not be new to some of you though.

For today’s set, here are some of my favorite dark-colored S60 themes.

Because my dad still had to learn S60, and because his new Nokia E51 still had to be set up, his new phone was practically mine for a few days. This is a recap of my impressions of the E51 during the short time that it I spent with it. I guess you can consider this as a mini review.


Because of all the fuss I made when I was looking for a new mobile, my dad also became interested in upgrading his tech toys. He was looking for something that would relieve him of his 6.6-lb IBM Thinkpad while still allowing hardcore productivity. He also wanted to replace his Nokia 7250i and Palm M515 PDA.
