Is Windows 7 on your PC yet?

10 11月

For me, not yet.

I got some packages of Windows 7 for my PCs. But they are still not be upgraded. I didn’t use Windows Vista. I’m using Windows XP. This means you have to format disk and install Windows 7 on your PC. If you are using Windows Vista, you can overwrite Windows 7 on your Vista. It means you can keep your own settings and compatible applications. However, mine is XP. Therefore, I have to format and delete my properties.

This is a bit hard work. So, I hesitate to install it. And I have one more problem.
My PC is iMac and MacBookPro released in 2006. They have Intel based CPU and chipset on it. But Apple computer will not support 2006 model of them. It means that they do not release any drivers for them.

That’s big problem for me.

I’m considering of that resolution.

Cirque du Soleil a permanent public performance in Japan

01 11月

 I'm so exiceted to wait to see the Cirque du Soleil performance tonight, here in Japan.

Fortunately, my place is very close place to Tokyo Disney Resort. Therefore, I can get to its theather in 30 mins.

I went to see the performance. It was awsome!
It is a wonderful show I've never seen before. You can see ZED in Tokyo. It is a bit expensive. However, you should go there if you have opportunity.

I thought I want to write down my deep impression detail here. But it will be better not to do it for the people who are not go there yet.


amazonKindle is now really available in Japan!

31 10月

It's been long long time to visit and type out on the vox. It has been very busy days after baby comes around for 2 yeas. 🙂 The baby growth as a toddler now. She speaks lots of words and even sentences nowadays…!

By the way, I excited to announce you that I've got a amazonKindle generation 2 international version from I've orderd there online and what a surprise it arrived for only few days at our place (Japan) !

amazonKindle is a populer e-book device in the U.S which has a 3G mobile connection tool for download all materials you purchased. Now, it is spreaded to 200 of countries in the world. Japan is one of them. Therefore, I tried to get this one. It will be good to keep me to continue to study English, anyway.

You can buy e-book via 3G mobile network from You can subscribe not only books but daily newspapers, magazines cheeper than paper book. If you subscribe a newspaper, such as NewYorkTimes, monthly, it will be automatically delivered to your Kindle device everyday. Oh, 3G connection is free for download. That's awsome !

In addition to it, you can read such kind of world-wide-famous newspapers, magazines out side of the U.S. I've tried to buy some of newspapers as "current issue". It's wonderfule to read on real time.(Maybe faster than paper one, actually)

amazonKindle also has a awsome text-to-speach function. You can listen the sound of text with mail or femail voices. It is really enhanced computer voice. But my wife told me "That's computer voice, anyway. You should not practice your pronounciation." :)  However, I really impressed by these voices none the worse for accenting wrong sometimes. 

It will be good function for English learners just like me.

amazonKindle uses special ink for display characters and pictures. This is also watchable technology.

Thank you for reading my poor typing.
Keep in touch with all of you on the vox.

best regards

It's clear and going to be very hot today.
However, it's only for today's weather; it's cloudy for the rest of the week.
Tsuyu, the rainy season, began and it's very humid. Usually it's hot but sometimes gets chilly.
Since it's such a fine day, I'm feeling that I want to going to the TDS. However, I gotta go to work now.
This is a picture of last time.

Hi folks,

I've been to Kusatsu onsen place in the beginning of this year. It was just a one-day trip from the Tokyo area. It sounds a bit hard but it was ok. I drove my car to Kusatsu. Unfortunately, we were involved in a bad jam on the way. There were four accidents on several parts of the highway. It was a really bad jam. It took us more than 6 hours to reach Kusatsu. (usually, it takes 3 to 4 hours). We dropped by and took a rest in each parking area while we were involved in the big traffic jam. After all, it was already afternoon when we arrived in the Kusatsu onsen area. I found a parking space near the entrance of Kusatsu onsen, called "Yu-batake". Yu-batake means "field of hot water"; this is actually the origin of a hotspring. You can see plenty of hot water coming out from underground. It has a lot of sulphur. This is a special feature of the Kusatsu hot spring. As I mentioned before on the Beppu Hotspring issue, it is like the Myoban onsen. This is a very common and famous place to enjoy a sulphur-based hot spring. You can enjoy it at some places for free! Today,


THE 4400

21 1月

I finished to watch the 4400 season 1 yesterday. It was really fun. Actually, I'm a fan of X-FILES. I had a tour of its filming locations by myself when I was a student. Flilming locations of 4400 is also Vancouver. My wife and I could find some familiar place with us in the movie. When I went to Vancouver last time, I could see its film unit with big white trucks at the UBC. The next time we go to Vancouver, we will try to find some location where the 4400 had been taken again.


I’ll go for it! (Correction 07′ Jan, 19)

19 1月

It was too busy to have time to do anything except for workingbut work from the end of last year thoroughto the beginning of this year. But after that,After that, though, I could havehad a brief trip to Kyushu Island. Our purpose was to take some kinds ofuse the hot spring in the Beppu area and also visit some historical special places. Of course, eating special meals at these special points where you visit is also necessary. If you really want to enjoy a real onsen (hot spring) in Japan, I strongly recommend to you to visit Bepppu inon Kyushu Island. Because, because Beppu is such a nice hot spring that you can enjoy many different types of hot springs at once. By the way, I've not logged in for a long time and didn't read any scripts which I chose. I would never say I couldn't make time to do it anymore. It was my fault. GoIt goes without saying that I still have big motivation  very motivated to use and improve my English skill. Therefore, I'm back now and trytrying to follow my plan again. I will manage a weekly schedule for The Linguist. Speaking of "Time management", I actually hadtook the TOEIC test in the last weekend. I took some types of trial (sham) examinations to get accustomed to time management. It was the first time to take athe new version of TOEIC test for me. I didn't finish it within its time limit again. But I could knowHowever, I found my weak point obviously this time. I need to read more and to read it faster. It will not only help me to improve my reading skill but also increase vocaburalyvocabulary. My company also has a special version of the TOEIC IP test inat the end of this month. I'll go for it from now on!
