Ubuntu 12.04 LTS : review

I tried to use Ubuntu 12.04 from last week.

For the total view, I think 12.04 is the most stable version except default desktop. This meaning is that if you will clean-install from zero then the system is so stable.

I tried to update from 11.10 to 12.04. The updating was completed. But it was not stable especially x-windows system. Usually, I work on ubuntu and intelli-j. So, x-windows system's problem is critical for me ^^;;

Finally, I formated the system partition and reinstall 12.04 from zero. And, I changed window manager to GNOME, then the system became quite good. Before 11.10, my computer could not find sound board. ( my computer has one sound card, one onboard sound card, and one USB sound card) I think my computer could know the usual sound card when i installed 10.04(?). However, after some updating, the system could not find any sound card. So, I gave up to setting up and I bought new USB sound card. However, it was not worked on my computer, too.  However, when I installed 12.04, the machine made boot sound just after install it. It made my surprised.

I don't know the problem is from my graphic board or Ubuntu. But, it is difficult to play flv or mp4 file. (because, my video card is only PCI-Express x1).

For the multimedia machine, I consider to buy one small pc for playing them..... Windows? mint linux? or some others?

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.
