Back to the same place again (麻辣湯 - malatang). This time I remembered to take a photo before eating it all (harder than it looks).

It's awesome. It's basically Sichuan hotpot but without having to deal with a fire and a huge bowl of soup on your table. And ordering for one is easy. You choose your ingredients and 3 minutes later they bring you the cooked results. Unlimited rice included, all for 680JPY (4.90EUR)!

This time I went for 激辛, the highest on their spicy scale and it still wasn't that spicy. I might be getting the "foreigners don't like spicy" treatment, I don't know. I'll ask to go off the scale next time.

They also have awesome fried shaolongbao. These things are dangerous. They're dumplings, full of soup. Even when you think you've slurped it all out, there are still pockets remaining, hidden away, waiting to shoot a jet of boiling hot liquid up your nose when you bite down!

This is 麻辣香鍋. I also tried the 麻辣湯 during the week but I prefer the soupless version.

Most of the staff pronounce "鍋" as a drawly "guorrrrrr" but the guy last time pronounced it as "gu". Where does that come from?

“Although they seem to be trying to take corrective measures, DNS is hard, and they don’t seem to be very good at it,”

As the worlds largest distributor of botnet vectors, MS has some brass balls destroying no-ip's service like this. My IP is still down, this is absolutely not fixed and I hope no-ip take them to the cleaners for this.

+井上エイド Sure - I had such an account too, but they went pay-only eight weeks ago, which prompted me to set up my own dynamic DNS instead , with a little Perl code instead of an external service. :)

This is what I used to work on. Pretty surprising to see it laid out in a fair bit of detail.

Ah, SDN would make it all a lot more interesting.  I could imagine integrating the load balancing deep into the network guts ... like a stateful replacement for VRRP.  Ok, thanks!

My new book has a big chapter about load balancing techniques and sadly it doesn't include anything about anycast.  When I thought to add anycast we were too far into production (There's a point at which we can't make edits that would, for example, change page numbers or make text reflow).  Now that CloudFlare, Google, and others are using anycast so heavily I may write a web-only addendum about anycast.  Knowing that SDN has something to do with it is good to know!

Pretty funny.

I don't have glass and I'm not in a hurry to get it but if I did, I hope I would use it a bit more carefully in social situations.
"The Daily Show" took a full swing at Google Glass on Thursday. Once just a funny-looking face-computer, the device has transformed into something of a $1,500 embodiment of both modern privacy invasion and America's yawning wealth divide. ...

Something to liven up my Sunday afternoon.

Here's a bunch of Japanese people protesting about foreign criminals in Japan and how they should go home. Some of the banners were aimed at Chinese and Korean but there are some photos of westerners. Also some banners about cults, I'm not sure if that's a reference standard western religions or some crazier cults.

The good news is that there were about an equal number of nice Japanese people from

http://antiracismproject.wordpress.com/

running along beside them, shouting "レイシスト帰れ" ("racists go home"). ありがとう!

Add to that about the same number of police making sure they didn't mix and a few police vans and buses and it was quite an event.

Yeah, ye olde war flag was a bit of a surprise too. It's still the Japanese naval ensign, but a definite surprise to see anyone waving it on the street.

Someone linked to this. My rough translation of the headline was "be careful of office romance with ninja women". I clicked and spent about 10s trying to read it before I had to just scroll and scroll. Keep an eye out for the ninja lady in the recycle bin on page 2!

Edit: read it all now, it's an ad for Toshiba's computer.

Well one of them is pretty well coveted up and she gets stabbed in the heart. So clearly there is a disadvantage to it.

Some crazy stuff in here.
 
By the time its entire fleet of 24 satellites has launched in 2018, Skybox will be imaging the entire Earth at a resolution sufficient to capture, for example, real-time video of cars driving down the highway. And it will be doing it three times a day.
Google's purchase of satellite firm Skybox for just $500 million, writes columnist Christopher Mims, could have a bigger impact on the search company's bottom line and on the world than any other recent high-tech acquisition.

Dear +Redbox 

someone used my email address signing up for your service. Fine this happens. You sent me a "confirm your email address" email. Good. It would be great if there was a "no that's not me" but there wasn't. So I just ignored it. That should be the end of it.

Now I'm receiving emails with details of "my" video rentals. Last 4 digits of CC, zip code. Nothing too revealing but still...

Your customer support have unsubscribed me (although that option wasn't available until I said I would start publishing the emails).

Poor.

The food is delicious. The spicy stuff is really spicey beware. The service is not always great, sometimes they are way too busy. The atmosphere and decoration are not the reason to come here. Come here for the food.
