Towards the end I was shown early tallies of 49.9% yes, 50.1% no. The only reason the yes votes were so high is because Isshin no Kai spent billions of yen promoting the merger, and at this point I wouldn't be surprised if it went to court.

Not quite full-bloom, but today might be the only good weather day for hanami. It's set to rain just about all weekend.

Rarely do I get a chance to eat here while it's open.

I grew up doing fun and typically non-alcohol related for St. Patrick's Day, so I rather enjoy the holiday. But I totally see what you mean about the idiocy and cultural appropriation. Cinco de Mayo's a lot of the same nonsense.

More than making up for the calories burned on my run.

If you take herbal supplements, you should stop. They're unregulated, at best worthless and at worst dangerous, especially if you have allergies.

In this multi-screened, internet-connected 21st Century, it's making less sense to keep my data primarily on my desktop hard drive. I make a lot of use of Google Drive for documents and spreadsheets, but I've grown interested in keeping my own backups and being able to serve up my music on any device anywhere, so I started looking into network-attached storage (NAS).

There are any number of NAS drives on the market that one could just plugin and go with, but it sounds much more fun and extensible to build a custom computer for the purpose. There are two popular OSes out there for this: Amahi and FreeNAS. Amahi sounds like it's super easy to set up, and adding functionality is done by getting apps from an online store (though they usually cost money). FreeNAS sounds more involved, technical, and resource demanding, but has a long history and a dedicated team behind it, and is capable of all kinds of crazy stuff like multiple redundancy and high-level encryption.

Anyone out there have any experience with either?

+Greg Spradlin Dropbox is great, I have an account but I haven't used it in a long time. I use Google Drive despite it's long lack of a Linux app, because of easy in-browser editing and collaborating with friends. I've hear people say you should keep backups both at home and on a remote service like Dropbox, in case disaster strikes in either place.

Yeah, FreeNAS will take you down that rabbit hole. There are guys out there who really obsess about how to store data.

The only problem is cigarette smoke.

Japan is still on my list of places to go. Parts of Hong Kong were very smoky when I went. But hopefully people are smoking less in general.

Is it just me, or does this track have a real Shadow Project vibe to it?

Can't be sure if that was dumb luck or not. Pretty slick ABX setup, though.

I love FLAC, but I think it's place is more as an archival format than one for streaming.
