Everybody looking at mp3 players: you might want to have a look at devices capable of running https://www.rockbox.org/ . I recently bought a FiiO M3K, with rockbox I can now again play exotic file formats like mod (from the #amiga ), and rockbox provides all kinds of features which normal players do not offer.
I moved to #japan , and some things are strangely 'just right'. Mount Fuji has just the right height so someone like me can climb it.
An other thing: my typographic senses are satisfied as my surname has 4 letters, which expressed in half-width letters are just perfectly lining up with Japanese names, which typically have 2 full width Kanji.

On the internet, also a proper press release appeared :)

This is what a 'bad guy' in #japanese media looks like, in this exaplanation of the weakness in 7elevens new mobile payment system.
#fedora on the Nintendo Switch has now finally HDMI output.
#culture meets technology. For some, the coaster on the right side contains 門, the Kanji for gate. For others, this is an illustration of the Apple earplugs..
Spotted this ad today at the Tokyo metro: they advertise a time change, to turn clocks 2h back starting this summer.
"With this, you start to work earlier, and it's still bright when you come back from work, so you can spend time with your family!"
That does not really apply to the workers here who come back at 23:00.
