The Importance of Printer Paper

About a year and a half ago I bought my first color printer. It was an Epson PM-770C which is I believe the Japanese model of the Epson 750. The Epson 750 is the "photo" model that uses 6 inks. 5 colors + black.

I bought this scanner to scan 5000 old family slides all taken before 1984.

It’s not a bad scanner but there have been a couple of disappointments. Read more…

LA.Matchmaker.com

LA Matchmaker.com is another internet dating service.  One of the things I liked about it is their questionare.  Unlike Match.com which pretty much leaves it up to you, Matchmaker.com asked quite a few questions.  Filling them all out can be alot of work but I think it makes it easier to come up with things to say.

Hi,

I’m Gregg. Some people call me Greggman. (dating info)

I make video games for a living. I’ve been doing it since 1982.

For fun I like to hang out with friends.

My interests are of course video games and computers but also I love movies, dinning, travel and shopping.

My most recent interest is learning Japanese. I’m not sure why I’m learning it but I just want to. It’s a very cool feeling to be able to understand another language. I am fortunate enough to be able to afford a two bedroom apartment and so last Summer I got the idea that I should consider letting Japanese people use my second room in exchange for helping me practice my Japanese. I asked a few friends in Japan if they knew anybody who would want to use the room for a few weeks during a trip to the USA. They said that maybe some of their friends might like to do that but nothing ever happened.

Then, one day, our office manager saw an ad in the Pennysaver. It said something like "Japanese students will trade housework for room." We called the number and a few days later some guy called and asked about the room. I didn’t need anybody to do housework so I told him the deal was he just needed to help me practice my Japanese. His name was ‘Yasunori’ and he stayed from September 27th 1996 to January 6th 1997.

While he was here I found out that there are quite a few schools here in So.Cal that specialize in teaching English to Japanese students. Many of the students come over and trade housework for a room while they attend the school. I met several of his school friends and after he left, two of them asked if they could share the room. They have since moved in and they say they will be here until November.

There names are Rieko Takamatsu (25) and Yukiko Ogata (22).

They get around quite a bit. The last week in March they both went to Brazil.

Look at my jetsetting roommates.

I’m jealous.

Even supposed "computer experts" are idiots

Shift Karts

In early November we had pretty much finished Crash Team Racing except for the Japanese version and so the boss, Jason, treated us all to a day of shift karts.  It was pretty damn cool.

Sony DCR-PC100

I recently picked up the Sony DCR-PC100 camera through a friend from Japan.  I own the Sony TVR9 also but just like my digital still cameras, I found that because the TVR9 is not small enough to fit in my pocket I almost never used it.  By that I mean that I’ve owned many digital still cameras and it turns out of if it’s not small enough to fit in my pocket I won’t use it.
