As we already know, vampires most of the times have cool names. Browsed around and found a website where you can generate a vampire name from your real name. “A vampire name? I am not a vampire. What is it for?”, I hear you asked. Well… Here’s the answer quoted from the original website.
The Vampire Name Generator is designed to be used for gothic role playing games like White Wolf’s Vampire: The Requiem, and Vampire: The Masquerade, and also the Buffy the Vampire Slayer RPG.
I myself don’t play any of the games mentioned above. But if you do, this might be useful for you. Or you can use it for your new alias in chat rooms. Some people that gets the same last vampire name (uhm… vampire family name) even create their own clans and social groups. Oh, by the way, this is my vampire name…
Lately I became addicted to papercraft. And a few weeks ago, I tried to join a Korean online papercraft community. I was surprised that my browser cannot display the Korean characters (Hangul CMIIW) properly. It only showed up as squares with small numbers. As far as I know, I already installed the files for East Asian languages. I tried to open some random Chinese and Japanese websites. They all showed up fine. My system only can’t display Korean characters properly! Although I can’t read any Korean character, at least I can tell the difference between words in that Korean web, if my browser can display them properly.
This of course troubled me a lot.
