Went to Akihabara again to help a friend buy a Linux PDA. Since the Sharp Zaurus is the only one that comes with it installed, thats what we got.
It was a nice and sunny day so rode my bicycle to Akihabara. I used to go there almost every weekend at one time to look around for new computer parts and check out prices for RAM, CPU etc, but realised that this was my first visit in months. The only reason I went there […]
Christmas today but it doesn’t feel like it here in Japan. Few people officially celebrate it, though some Santas and decorations can be seen in restaurants and shopping areas. Off to our Bonenkai. Wonder why they put it on Christmas day.
I had decided on getting my own snow-board boots after the last, very painful, experience with rentals. Went to Jimbocho with Rainer and found some really good and reasonably priced boots.
