The katana is the most famous and iconic Japanese sword; the long, curved, one-edged sword that you pretty much never see a fictional samurai without.
Notice the distinctive shape and the fact that it’s almost as sharp as Crono’s hair.
There are a lot of misconceptions about katana, though.

First they invented that terrible new stats page and refused to provide an option to have the “old” one come up as the default, and now the link to the more complete (“old”) stats page has been made more obscure, to the point where I almost didn’t notice it.
More on the stats page in a minute, but so that you don’t see a long post and assume it’s all about that, here’s the other latest annoying change: notifications now look worse, possibly take longer to load, and depending on the type they now require more clicks to actually click on the links in them.
Now, back to that stats page:

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,200 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 53 trips to carry that many people.

Based on somebody else saying they had a problem with it, I tried to schedule my previous post instead of publishing it immediately; it published immediately anyway. I’d never tried this before but I assume the feature hasn’t been nonfunctional for the entire time that it’s existed, so it’s probably yet another example of an “upgrade” making something worse.
I’m scheduling this post for 6:00 PM Central Time tonight (Dec 10), so if you see it before that, this makes twice.
(Or maybe it was just a time zone issue? Can the first person who sees this please comment and say what time it was?)
Apparently this is some kind of Japanese version of Robot Wars that has larger robots and licensed robots. So, basically, Robot Wars meets Super Robot Wars.
I found out about it here.
I wonder what would happen if Optimus Prime opened the Matrix in the presence of Getter rays.
I just noticed I have 100 followers now. Thank you everyone!
Not that it matters or anything, but why does the Reader think my previous post was posted three times when it’s only here once on my actual blog?
NovaSaber is dead. He’s not coming back. But he lives on as a part of me!
Actually, he is me. I’ve just decided to start going by a name that I’m more likely to use professionally.
But also, NovaSaber was a name that I had long been using only out of momentum, because it was the name I’d been using for a long time. And I don’t think that a name like that is really who I am anymore.
Still getting things set up. If you’re seeing this I guess it’s up and working.
