If I don’t have some sort of Japanese input device, then I won’t be able to do Japanese diary posts on computers that don’t have the Japanese language pack on them. I can type Japanese on my PDA, and then directly copy that into the computer I’m working on a that time.
I had a thought this morning…yes, it hurt. They come out of the blue, these thoughts….
Do I really need a PDA on this trip? The reason I am thinking of taking one is so that I can type up a daily diary. Having the diary in data format would speed up the uploading of the diary at internet cafes.
But would a notebook and pencil not be more than sufficient? No need to care for dust and moisture and temperature-sensitive electronic goods. No need for charging batteries. I don’t envisage writing more than a couple of paragraphs per day on the road for my diary. Write this by hand, and then quickly type it up on a computer at an interned cafe…
No hurry to decide yet though, I guess.
A small hill on the way to London has finally been surmounted. Rob has integrated his site into a content management software package called WordPress. The beauty of this, you see, is that when he needs to update or edit something on his website, all he needs to do is load 14degrees.org and login, and then edit the content of the page he needs to. No messing around with html code and what-not.
Things still needing Rob’s attention on the website are:
There are more, but I need sleep more than I need to keep typing.
