My style using cloud storages

My main working machine is Mac OSX snow leopard. I'm using also android mobile phone, android tablet and linux desktops. The big problem for using claude strage is supports for platform, public policy and size of strage.

Dropbox is one of the famous claud strage. The lient software for Dropbox has good functionality, even if it is free uses. However, Dropbox is weak for strage size. Yes, Dropbox has more than enough functionalities. And we can use dropbox for free. If you want to use larger strage size then you can pay. The size for free users can use 2GB. And you can pay for 50GB or 100GB. The amount of cost is not so big. But, it can make dammages for students life, even if it is small amount of costs. 

On another hand, Box.net, N-Drive, SkyDrive and UbuntuDisk (I'm not sure the correct name?) are also good strage services what we can use for free, too. 

My private opinion, Box.net is also good cloud service. Box.net can use 50GB for free. And Box.net has good web interface. However, the client for Box.net on mac osx is not good. Before version 3.0.1, the client didn't work on OSX (snowleopard). Now, it works on OSX. However, the client's UI is not user friendly. It is difficult to use. And for the synchronization between cloud strage and local strage, we need to pay every year as dropbox. I can say both of Box.net and Dropbox are good service and it is enough cheep cost for using there good services, if i'm working.... ^^;

SkyDrive is provided by microsoft. Users can use same account with hotmail. It is one of the good thing. But, my private opinion, same as Picasa by google, I don't want to upload my private and important data to there. Because, I'm not sure about the publication policy. I makes many mistake. If i will make mistake to setup the publication policy for my private documents..... However, they are good for uploading the photos. Especially , SkyDrive can be used 25GB of storage. it is more than good for web photo storage. And Google services can be used 1GB for pictures and 1GB another storage for documents. And, SkyDrive may not have client application for MacOSX.

N-Drive can access using WebDAV. For the accessing to use WebDAV, N-Drive is more stable than Box.net (this is before to be released ver. 3.0.2(box.net). we needed to access with webdav)  
* actually, I didn't know about this. But, in the internet, there are two different N-Drive with similar service. My meaning is the service provided by NAVER. 
This is good for android tablet, too.

Ubuntu one is similar service with Dropbox. We can sync data between cloud and local directory. But, it has weak for platform. They support only for Ubuntu, Android, iOS, and Windows. They don't support to OSX..... With out this point, UbuntuOne is also one of the good choice to use cloud data management.

Like as this, even if we have many cloud account on the ineternet. however, to use them with samething is difficult. ZeroPC can solve it. ZeroPC looks like online OS. The service can transfer the data from one cloud to other cloud. Current version is 2.0. The support cloud is following. 
Box.net, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Flickr, Google Docs, Instagram, Picasa and SugarSync
Now, it is not support for UbuntuOne and N-Drive. However, For free account. ZeroPC also have limitation for data transfer. We can transfer 1GB/ month.  However, if we use Dropbox for sync with local and claud and to use ZeroPC as bridge then we have some other big claud strage. It is not the most convenient way  and sometime we feel lazy about this way.  We need to consider something about them. But, it is one way to use multiple claud on many devices.

Bicycle insurance in japan

Long time, I was considering about bicycle insurance.

Many japanese are not consider about insurance for bicycle in japan. Because japan is weak country for insurance.

Many people considered about when they are attacked by car. They didn't have an idea what they may be going to be individual at fault. However, road bikes are faster than my MTB. And, many of city bikes do not turn on a head light after sunset. The old person has also no idea what the bicycles can ride so fast as 50cc motar bike. Then they easy enter in front of bicycles. Such kind of accident is not few in japan. And, the worst case of such accident, the road bike rider needed to pay 40 millions yen to attacked person.

Bicycle ride's bad manner have begun to social issues. Some bicycle riders do not follow the traffic lights or traffic signs. In such background, sometime, I have risks what I will be attacked by such bicycle riders when I ride my MTB. However, as above reason, many riders have no insurance for r…

SSID in japanese?

Usually, we don't use japanese for setting to computer. Because, japaese needs at least two byte. Usually, many computer systems are designed for one byte. So, to use japanese in the system setting was not common way. If he is usual engineer then he will not set japanese for the setting to SSID. I was not do such a thing. Today, i read a tweet written by my friend. He wrote that he could see the japanese ssid from his house. I was really  suprized when i read it. So, I asked prof. Google about this ssid expression in japanese. So, it is  exist.Now, I had no wireless devces for trying it. But,it is so intersting thing for me.

TokyoWalking : Tram @Arakawa-Line

End of last year, I went to cycling to Ikebukuro. Ikebukuro is one of the main city on Yamanote-line (loop line) It is north area of Tokyo (loop-line).

Basically, most rail lines on mid-tokyo are as subway or elevated railway. So, it made my so surprising, when I saw it. 
This is tram in tokyo. I did not know that tokyo also has a tram.

Following photo is another tram station.

I saw several tram on the railway. Most of them are painted with different line (maybe...) This tram is named Toden-Arakawa-Line. This line is for Waseda University. I could not take the tram, becase I rode my bicycle. However, I will take the tram on some day.

Following river is River, Kanda. The river is used on some old japanese song.
