Sound on Linux

Woo! That was easy.

The Linux winamp equivalent (XMMS) even has an alarm clock plugin (you can probably find something similar for winamp, but I don't leave my Windows boxes on all the time), so I can get woken up with custom playlists. Pretty cool.

Nippon2007 in Japanese

A friend of mine in Japan offered to translate the description for the Nippon2007 community, so I've added that to the page. (I can barely read it -- actually producing something like that is far beyond my current abilities, it would take me days and would no doubt be full of mistakes when I was done).

Pretty cool, huh? It's nice to have foreign language-speaking penpals. :)

So, go take a look! (Also, let me know if it doesn't format properly in your browser -- I'm expecting that a lot of people won't be able to render the Japanese characters, I'm more interested in knowing whether the rest is readable.)

Testing...

Still trying to figure out how to get LogJam to accept Japanese characters without having to do that whole escape thing. So if you see this appear and disappear, you'll know what's going on.

Alas, it seems that it is not possible. Argh. Now for unrelated approach number 2.

Method #2 has failed as well... Urk. This is annoying. I don't want to have to translate every character into a number and post those with an ampersand and a semicolon (if you've ever coded HTML, you know what I mean), that's a pain and a half. Galeon (Mozilla internally) won't accept pasted Japanese text (although IE will, but I don't want to have to find a Windows box to post on, I want to do it here where I read and email and all that crap -- in Japanese already fer crissakes).

I suppose I'll have to do some investigating.
