Plans are final

I am finally going to Japan! It took a little bit of waiting(17 years and $100 later), passport, and a little bit language skills brush-up. It has been paining me to go there,But FINALLY my dream will come true 2 or 11 months later. I'l be trekking the streets of Akihabara (秋葉原)! I still don't have a clue as to what I will bring back to the States with me.

How time flies

I was recently pondering the setup on my jukebox PC and realised that I have a 3-decade-old drive underneath a 2-week-old drive. The former a 1.2 MB 5.25" floppy, the latter a CD/(DVD+RW/DL)LS that can hold up to, if I can find the right media, a good 15.9 GiB of data, the equivalent of 15036.52 of those floppies. The relatively geriatric drive that I have came out of my 2nd, yes 2nd computer, a 286, and this thing still fucking works.
