Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Keyboard looks mid-1990s, judging by the color and design, but apparently IBM/Lenovo still make 'em (or so a Google search for "IBM trackpoint keyboard" tells me), in black instead of dark gray.

I think they have Windows keys now.

The two I have are the real original thing, over twenty years old, PS/2 plugs and no extra keys or nipple. Impossible to use at night because they keep everyone awake, of course. They've both been washed under the tap at some point or other, and are none the worse for it.

It's the Unicomp build IBM Model M - 13. It's basically the Model M with a modified upper chassiss in order to fit the buttons and cut outs of the G/H/B keys in order to fit the trackpoint. The PS/2 cable for the mouse is also a little unusual because it draws more power than normal which requires a more robost PS/2 to USB converter in order to make it work with laptops or computers that no longer have PS/2 inputs. The cable is real old and the buttons stopped working and I was tempted to send it back to Unicomp to get it refurbished, which they said they'd do for $60. But was able to open up the chassis myself and fix it once I got the right sized nut driver that would fit into the narrow seatings to open it up. Any other IBM keyboard you buy these days with the trackpoint isn't a Model M, and isn't worth it.

Adorable bebby, Ornette! :D

Speaking of bebbies, here's mine, Donald the mitred conure. Hey, closest thing I'm ever going to have to a child, anyhow. This is "Lazy: The Video", no editing whatsoever, just seven excruciating minutes of me jabbering and singing with Mr. Donny-bird. The singing picks up around 5 minutes in, if you want to skip to that.

Wandering down a back-street I'd not been along for decades, I noticed this instance of rightful disdain for plebs.

Anyone ever watch those documentaries that try to find out how "intelligent" (i.e., how slavishly similar to us, because what else matters?) other animals are? There's this exercise used with crows that involves dangling food on the end of a rope, which the crows solve by pulling up the rope little by little until they can access the morsel. At some point I tried this on my parrot Donald, and he was able to do it, too, which I thought was pretty cool, since I'd never heard of the test being administered to parrots. Here it is on video, just missing the very start because Donald was an asshole and wouldn't do it while I had the camera already going. I'll keep after him until I have the whole thing.

It's Cambridge; everyone cycles, and there are never enough places to park. The street in question (Portugal Place) is just off the main axis of the city, in an area with a number of facilities related to the University, and close to a number of pubs and restaurants. Of course people will secure their bikes to anything available close to their destination. There was in fact one chained to those very railings when I took the photo.

Same here in Oxford, of course; but if I came across that sign I would probably honour it as a small mark of respect!

Belated Christmas greetings. I'm back in Tokyo now but I went to Osaka, Himeji Castle, Fukuoka and Dazai-fu over the past four days, alternately visiting friends and old teachers. Here is a scant offering of pictures.

Himeji Castle: http://imgur.com/a/AWb1B

Fukuoka and Dazai-fu: http://imgur.com/a/dSFIc

Regrettably there's only one from Osaka. I walked around Shinsaibashi with an old teacher of mine.

Nice pics, Doggy. Never been to Himeji because the castle was under restoration for the past few years, but it looks awesome now that it's back open to the public. I have very fond memories of Fukuoka and Osaka. Hiroshima and Kumamoto too. I love Japan overall but I think the western part of the country is my favourite.
