google talk review

on 24th, google started providing an instant messaging service. i just tried it out with my sister. it's pretty fast opening and quick responding! and i like that little message window will minimizie like macos9 when i double click on the top of it.
unfortunately, i couldn't add my gmail account to adium and ichat using jabber. i am wondering if i am suppose to be able to.(addendum : i did!)

function that i really want them to add is file transfering and voice chatting with adium or ichat people since i am using them with macintosh. or they can make macintosh version of "google talk".

i love any service, google provides. for example, google map, gmail, and this blogger because not fancy, but light!

addendum : just successfully added the google account to adium. need to change the setting like this :

server : talk.google.com
port : 5222(5223)

cyber story

The little boy asks his father - "Daddy, how was I born? "

Dad responds, "Ah, my son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! "Well, you see, your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on AOL. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a fire wall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a blessed little popup appeared and said, "You've got male!"

how you find cool sites? ...well, google? someone's links? there are bunch of way, i know. but, today, i wanna introduce one way to find cool sites!

do you know a social bookmarks site "del.icio.us"? mmm.. what a nice url... social bookmarking is an activity performed over a computer network that allows users to save and categorize a personal collection of bookmarks and share them with others. (by wikipedia) the point is this :
"users can also take bookmarks saved by others and add them to their own collection, as well as to subscribe to the lists of others."

ok? got what u can do? this is the way :
1. post the same kinds of url which you wanna find. famous one might be better.
ex)if you wanna find cool a seach engine, post google.
2. go back to your own bookmarks. the bookmark, just added, may show how many people who have the same url, like this :

3. click on the number of people.
4. click on any id or tag name.
5. the person might have cool other sites. just steal them!!

that's it. i found some famous photostocks and a design database which are very useful.
btw, when i found only one person who has unexpected site, i feel like.. i wanna know bout the person! but unfortunately, i can't.

charlie and the chocolate factory

august 12, i watched the movie, charlie and the chocolate factory. frankly, i didn't like the movie even thought i like tim burton and joenny depp. the reason why i didn't like so much is, i guess, i don't like movies which have dancing scenes(that indicates little scared face guys). also, i expected too much that the movie was gonna be cool if the director was tim burton and the joenny depp acted. oh, well.. too bad for me and i give thumb down, sorry!!

one funny thing is that i felt the sense of humor was quite similar to the recent japanese cartoon(not the famous one). i can't explain how the humors are different from where used to be, but i am wondering there is no wide difference between japanese humor and american one. if people whose mother language is english like this movie's humors.

btw, even thought i didn't like the movie, i love the joenny depp's michael jackson like acting. still i think he is a good actor.

3 times windows installing.

omg, who expects windows installing is so hard!!!

i am an apple person. i have ipod, powerbook and g3 blue and white, but i do have windows xp computer for testing a website(my job is making website) and doing my computer classes' homeworks. recently, the windows computer was taking forever to boot, so i decided to re-install everything. ...but i am getting the horrible messages :

we apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. a recent hardware or software change might have caused this. blah blah blah...
then, it won't boot anymore!!! jeez, i've reinstalled windows two times already because of the stupid massage. i gave up with updating windows since it happens after windows update.

well, there is a japanese idiom,"san do me(3times) no sho-jiki(honesty)", which means third time is lucky, so hopefully, i won't get the stupid problem anymore ..but i know that there is the other idiom"ni do(twice) arukoto ha san do(third time) aru.", it never rains but it pours.

hello world,

hi, this is my first time to make an ENGLISH blog. i have japanese one, but i know not everyone can read it. i am wondering my english is good enough to make one. actually, i just quit keeping an english diary, i have kept for 2 or 3 years, because it was too short to practice english and totally pointless!! well, if somebody find this blog, then find weird english, tell me plz!! and be my friend. ;-)

btw, there is a japanese idiom "mikka bo-zu", which means person who can stick to nothing. (just "bo-zu" means little boy or bonze and "mikka" means 3days) i will try not to be like that...maybe.
- peace out -
