    Had a few problems with the server yesterday, which required the data center installing new ram chips. Looks like the traffic has been eating through the ram and burning a whole in the motherboard. New ram installed now so I hope we [...]

    There is a definite Ujicha theme at the moment. When i stayed in Kyoto on my first trip to Japan, I remember drinking Ujicha and really enjoying it. Good to see it in the conbini’s at the moment.

    The snacks keep coming this week, but as we get towards the warmer weather there is a definite ‘sakura in pink’ theme starting to develop. Have you noticed packaging in the stores start to change color for the different seasons?
