0.8 days of music

Well, I did it last year and I did it again this year, I down loaded the massive amount of music offered by the South by South West festival on their music sampler. It is very good and I have learned about some bands I would never have otherwise heard. That is especially so since I hardly ever listen to the radio these days.

I also down loaded the new version (beta) of Azureus. The core engine looks much the same, but the GUI is significantly improved. It only took over night to down load the more than 3 GB of the music sampler.

Spare me my life!

With certain parts of the Japanese media seemingly intent on exaggerating the amount of crime committed by foreigners in Japan, and a Tokyo governor dedicated to bad-mouthing non-Japanese on an almost daily basis, it’s perhaps not surprising that some sections of society are a little scared by such sensationalism. A situation that has prompted one production company to produce an educational/language video to teach terrified Tokyoites how to survive such an attack.

Printing Chocolates

Well I have been looking at getting a 3D printer for some time now, but the cost is still very high, though I have found a cheaper one - it does not work yet. In the mean time you can use the expensive one to print, of all things, chocolates!
