Attack of the Quickies

Here’s just a bunch of random sites I’ve found over the last few months.

There’s vidoes.antville.org which is a play for people to post links to *cool* music videos.

There’s enthu.cool.ne.jp which is a bbs with links to funny or interesting pictures, animations and flash stuff. Some of it’s pretty funny. Warning: adult content.

Dot16 v.s. Guimp, FIGHT!

dot16 wrote me to tell me they are now the *real* smallest website having stolen the throne from Guimp. I had mostly forgotten about Guimp but checking them out they are clearly aware of dot16. :-D

Spots TV

While I was searching for that Sumo commercial after seeing it on the Japanese news I found SpotsTV.com which is kind of like the dead Adcrtic.com used to be. It’s not in English but you can sometimes get your commercial fix ;-)

Internet Drive Thru

Starting Today you can now order fast food from the net and pick up the order at Mos Burger. McDonald’s biggest competitor in Japan.

I think a few small places have done that in the U.S. but no big chains as far as I know. But, they are not pushing it as ordering from work. They are pushing it as ordering from your car since wireless internet service is much bigger here. In fact, just about 3 weeks ago, H”, one of the cell phone companies started unlimited wireless net service for about $45 a month for a 32k connection.

Ruby

I found out about Rubys today. That’s a ruby? It’s the text that appears above or below some other text, kind of like a subscript or superscript. It’s used in Japanese alot for pronounciation guides since there’s know way to know the pronounciation of a word written in Kanji

For example the following sentence.

今日(きょう)(でん)(しゃ)()った.

If you can’t read that because you’re browser doesn’t show Japanese here’s an English example.
