  • Blog Post: Installing Japanese Keyboards on Windows XP

    A little while back I bought a Japanese keyboard to use with my laptop while docked. It's a Microsoft Basic Keyboard 1.0A, with 109 keys. Not only does it have more keys than a standard US keyboard, but the layout is slightly different (such as the location of the apostrophe ' and at-symbol @ keys)....
  • Blog Post: Outsider's Eyes

    It may sound strange, but odd-numbered years always bring me better fortune than even-numbered years. Sorry, I won't elucidate. I've returned to the United States for the holidays to visit family and friends. Having spent the previous 9 months living in Japan, I've wondered how this experience has changed...
  • Blog Post: TechEdの参加レビュー

    TechEdは火曜日に始まりましたが、授業があったので、私は水曜日に名古屋から行きました。初めに参加したセッション はVisual Basic 2005でした。Visual Basicを手伝って作ったので、発表会を見るのは楽しかったです。Visual C#セッションとVisual Basicセッションの出席者数は同じぐらいでした。Visual C#はもっと人気があると思ったから、びっくりしました。私はVBのほうが好きなので、ちょっと嬉しかったです。:) 木曜日、河端さんに招待してもらいましたから、INETAのComegaセッションに参加して話せました。何を言うか考えました。心配したけれども、大丈...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Impressions

    I've finished my last session for the day here at TechEd. Right now I'm staring out over Yokohama Bay where the expansive Yokohama Bay Bridge dominates the view. I attended the VB 2005 session this afternoon to see what the audience was like and what kind of topics were discussed. The room, which sits...
  • Blog Post: Tech・Ed 2004 Yokohama

    This week I will be attending TechEd 2004 Yokohama . The event runs from Tuesday, Sept. 7th, but I'll be heading out on Wednesday in time to attend the VB and C# sessions. Not sure exactly what to expect since everything will be in Japanese (I still feel like an absolute beginner despite my efforts to...
  • Blog Post: Sumo

    A week ago three classmates and I went to the Nagoya Sumo tournament and the experience was simply amazing. For those of you who think Sumo wrestling is a bunch of obese half-naked men pushing each other around, well... you're right. But that's about as useful a definition as "a lot of men on bikes"...
  • Blog Post: Tokyo Trip Report: the Java-in-Japan question

    Had a great time in Tokyo last week. Used Freespot to find some places with free wireless access, among them Cafe la Voie and Mixing Cafe . Also went to a meeting of the Tokyo PC Users Group where I heard an enjoyable presentation on the application of the electromagnetic spectrum to weapons technology...
  • Blog Post: Tokyo

    After three grueling months of Japanese language study, I'm ready for a break. Thankfully, summer vacation is coming! All next week I will relax in the quiet and peaceful expanse called Tokyo. But what to do? Cool cafés, restaurants, shops... any suggestions? I want to skip the major tourist attractions...
  • Blog Post: I'm an Expert Trash Sorter

    From my city's Offical Guide to Reducing Trash in the 21st Century. Sorting trash is not fun. I'd rather let the garbage collector do it.
  • Blog Post: Life in Japan

    (Next post will be about VB, honest! :) So far I've had 15 days of Japanese language class. I try really hard to refrain from using English when in the building, but sometimes it's necessary. There's only so far a conversation can go when the participants only know how to say "I ate food yesterday...
