Sun, 09 Dec 2001 My sister will come in Japan!!

I aquired the Logitech cordless keyboard & optical mouse. Great! I will probably write some documentation on its configuration in my Linux page, someday...

Mozilla is getting really great! Even if version 1.0 is still not released, I consider it is already better than any other browser, especially for the compliance with W3C standards, such as CSS...

My sister and her family come to Japan this Chistmas. This will be the first time we are together for this celebration since I live in Japan... Already 4 years!

Last information, after some strong recommendations from me, my wife restarted to learn french. Seriously this time!

Wed, 21 Nov 2001 New I-book for Li!

We bought a brand new I-Book for my wife. This is a perfect machine! Of course, I have some difficulties to support it in case of trouble, as the OS is Japanese, and the input system is Chinese!!
But I managed to make my print server work (even for Japanese & Chinese!), to make automatic backups, and of course removed all M$ pre-installed stuff, such as Internet Exploder and Outlook. The only problem is the lack of a decent Java runtime for MacOS 9.1. I will try to upgrade to MacOS X, when I feel more confident...

By the way, my sister got a virus (she uses Outlook), and she managed to send it to maybe 30 different people, including someone in my company, who was very surprised...

Sun, 21 Oct 2001 War...

War again :-( It started one month ago with the New-York Twin Towers attack... What could we do against this kind of attacks?

Boudicca was shaved. She has a very funny face now :-)

Sat, 01 Sep 2001 Accident in Kabukicho

This diary is going the wrong way. I am really too lazy :-)

What happened these last 4 months? Boudicca is growing quickly, we went on holidays in Thailand (Koh-Samui, as usually!), Li -my wife- lost her passport, and needs 3 months to get a new one :-( Maybe this could prevent her to come to France, as we planned.

And this night there was this explosion in Kabukicho (a hot place in Tokyo). The last news say that 44 people died, most of them were in an hostess bar.

Fri, 15 Jun 2001 Heisenberg...

11:23 Ca me rappelle la théorie de l'observateur qui modifie le résultat d'une expérience par le fait de regarder
11:27 11:23 Principe d'incertitude d'Heisenberg.
11:29 11:23 Voui, il s'est aperçu que dès qu'il avait le dos tourné, les photons se mettait à foutre le bordel. Pour ça, il a utilisé un chat, qui, comme tout le monde le sait, ne dort que d'un oeil, ce qui a bluffé les photons.
11:39 Les fotons, c'est des cons.

Wed, 18 Apr 2001 Move from Roppongi to Nishi-Azabu

Done!! We are now in the new apartment. It is much bigger than last one, but a little noisy, especially in my computer room - but this does not change anything compared to the overall noise of my three machines :-)

Boudicca did not eat for 2 days after we came here. Until I understood that she needed her regular plate, which was still in boxes :-)

I went to Singapore for a business trip two weeks ago. Li came too. The problem is that she loves this country: Most people speak chinese, the weather is good, etc... Shit, I don't like this country very much (Tokyo gives more occasions to have fun, IMHO!).

Eventually, NTT changed my leased line yesterday, without prior notice. I had some trouble in getting the site up again, but everything seems ok now, except Jeff who did not care my warning emails :-)

Mon, 12 Mar 2001 Boudicca!!!!

We bought a dog last month. Her name is Boudicca. She is a Yorkshire Terrier. You can find some pictures in the gallery.

I went with my company to Cebu (Philippines) 2 weeks ago for a week-end. The place is nice, and it could be a possible destination for my next holidays.

We found a new apartment in Nishi-Azabu.

Sat, 27 Jan 2001 Snow in Tokyo, looking for a new apartment

Snow today. Cool! I love snow, and this gives me an excuse to delay again the purchase of a motorbike. Li (my wife) is of course happy with that ;-)

I am still trying to rebuild this site without frames, but I have trouble with mozilla in images preloading.

Last news: I am trying to find a new apartment, if possible not far from the office, but apparently this is not a good period for that: many people are looking for a new home, and prices are rather high :-(
