Just 2 hours to go before I’m on my way to Zao, Yamagata-ken for snowboarding.
Aargh. Some recabling last night cut my machine off from the internet and I stopped receiving my email. Now Im stuck with either having a global IP and no access to the internal net or vice versa. Guess its time to get 2 machines.
Had a huge dinner of shrimp and cheeze with Dave and Stuart afterwards at TGIFridays and did some late night shopping for tomorrow’s snowboard trip (food and some snacks).
Attended a talk on copyright law and linux by Larry Lessig. Law is not one of my favorite subjects, but it went pretty well. One of the things I remember from the talk was the importance of blogging with regards to free speech.
Just signed up for the PDA meetup. .. and for the Linux meetup.
Lots of birthdays these days.
Wow. Snow in early December.
Met some Pakistani families. Rode my bicycle half-way across Tokyo and had to ride back in the rain, but it was fun.
Eid today. Had a celebration at the mosque and some very nice Iranian food.
Also met Dan around his place and had some great Chinese ginger ale plus ‘Flafal’ at Shamaim.
