The Japanese era name is changing, I was in contact with our glibc engineers, as the locales which contain the era name are part of glibc. 'DJ Delorie' gets involved, after some time I realize that he is the 'DJ' in djgpp, the GCC port which I used on msdos long time ago..

I was singing the "Ode to the joy" last weekend in Tokyo, after months of training.
The pictures are here:

This is what defeat looks like.
So I gave a presentation, and the representive wanted to give me an envelope with money. Of course I refused, as I am doing such things not for money.
He walked away, and after my presentation hands me over a big bag with nicely wrapped gifts. I can not refuse that, it was bought for me.
This is like war games, once you play the game, you loose..

a friend of mine who spends a LOT of his time picking up plastic waste from parks, rivers, streets, etc. had a good idea. He decided to photograph the non biodegradable waste and tag companies on social media with it. So if he finds a plastic Subway cup, he tells Subway about it with the message "is this yours?" I dig this because it's not something that blames the consumer. It puts the blame where it belongs: on the producer.

Lese gerade den Bericht der Kommission "Wachstum, Strukturwandel und Beschäftung" ("Kohlekommission") und es ist einfach nur schrecklich. Beispiel:

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.
