Finally back in the saddle after 2 months of inactivity. Feels great, though my heart and muscle need some serious training in order to get the power back. I sure don't mind!

Nice, but I'm sure the most noticeable change is the improved ping (latency) scores.

+Kohei Yoshida Living in Seattle, I probably shouldn't diss Starbucks, although one of the things "Seattleites do" is to say they hate Starbucks while carrying a Starbucks card in their wallet. ;)

A classic. I remember this particular panel very well. Larson most definitely shaped me...

Sigh...
The US government has made definitive statements about Chinese telecommunications company Huawei — a 2012 report claimed that the company's networking equipment posed a national security risk,...

At least the NSA is spying on someone other than just American citizens (this does not excuse their unconstitutional spying on American citizens).

Agreed on most of them, but not #16... I live near Northgate and I absolutely love it here! :)
It’s “drizzling,” you’re drinking coffee, you’re wearing flannel, and no you don’t have an umbrella. You’re a Seattleite, and proud of it.

Too funny. I went on a Starbuck's tirade this morning. Nobody likes Starbucks as far as I know, back in NY people had "Friends don't let friends drink Starbucks" bumper stickers all over

Doesn't give me any better impression about Florida. This is outrageous.

Things are looking worse and worse each day ...
 
BREAKING: NSA said to have used Heartbleed bug to gather intelligence for two years, reports Bloomberg.
The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said.

Introduction
Last Update: 15 April 2014

Where should I begin?
Okay, I am a software engineer living with a beautiful wife in Seattle, WA. Born and raised in Kobe, Japan, I came to the U.S. in order to study Journalism. I somehow got into computers during my college years and decided to get a degree in Computer Science. That was 20 years ago. Here I am, still writing code for a living.

Cycling
I began cycling in July 2013. I was only going to do it to get around the neighbourhood first, but it quickly turned out to be such a fun and addictive activity, I now ride 20+ miles almost daily - including commuting to work.

My rides are:

2013 Trek 7.5 FX
2002 Gary Fisher Marlin

Ingress
Agent ID: daihard
Faction: Enlightened
Territories: Pinehurst, Northgate, Downtown Seattle

Me and Open Source
I am a strong supporter of the Open Source principle. As a pragmatist, I recognise some positive effects brought by the so-called "walled garden" approach (as employed by companies like Microsoft and Apple). I still prefer having Open Source software on my computers as much as possible.

Here's my current environment.

Laptop 1: Panasonic Toughbook W8 -  Kubuntu 12.04
Laptop 2: Apple MacBook Pro with Retina - Mac OS X 10.9.2
Cellphone: LG Nexus 5 (16 GB) - AOKP KitKat 2014-04-06 Nightly
Tablet: ASUS Nexus 7 (16 GB) - AOKP KitKat 2014-02-08 Nightly

Formula One
I've been following Formula One Racing for over 30 years. The first Grands Prix I've watched had legendary drivers such as Niki Lauda, Mario Andretti and James Hunt. I was seriously into F1 in the late 80s to the early 90s, when McLaren was dominant but Ferrari and Williams were catching up. My absolute favourite driver is Ayrton Senna, followed by Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button.

Addendum
I write mostly in English, but you'll occasionally find weird, often garbled symbols and stuff in my posts. They are most likely Japanese. :)
