Haiku taquin

L'avatar tortue
Torture le lapin lent
La Fontaine en toc

Bon c'est bien parce que je n'ai pas beaucoup de temps et que pendant le chargement de RLC je laisse mon esprit divaguer.

Qu'est-ce que le baiser ? - Une divagation, tout chavire.

Failure with Novoking

Novoking is incredibly complicated, far more complicated than HiPiHi (here are my first attempts to connect...
So far the most I could obtain was a nice blue screen where I always failed, no matter the data I entered.
Now I can even no longer reach this screen, apparently I made something wrong and I am stuck where you can see a nice boy with his thumb up, maybe telling me that I am fucked... (in occident we show another finger, but the meaning is the same)
I created three different accounts, thinking that something was wrong during the registration process, but with each of these accounts the result is always a mysterious error message in Chinese surely telling me that No you are not allowed to enter!
I sent an SOS to Novoking, now let's be patient, I only hope they give me some documentation in English...
The main problem is that I can't even copy/paste their ideograms to translate them with Google, so it's difficult to figure out the meaning of these damned error messages.

BEARD, n. The hair that is commonly cut off by those who justly execrate the absurd Chinese custom of shaving the head.
Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary
US author & satirist (1842 - 1914)
