EU Software Patent Directive AdoptedThat's sad...
In Japan, the government isn't monolithtic currently. Someone said 'we progress pro patent policy, to against other countries (especially China)', but another one said 'patent stops a innovation'. From pessimist's view, I believe Japan will progress patent policy even if it has a problem.
Some Japanese companies have nasty software patents, such as emulator patent holder -- Nintendo.
HitsumabushiHitsumabushi is local dish at Nagoya, Japan. Base materials are grilled+flavoured eel, rice in bowl. Unique point of Hitsumabushi is that there are three step to eat this.
- Eat rice and eel 1/3 part.
- Next, put seasoning (sliced welsh onion, sesame, wasabi, laver) into bowl and mix, then eat 1/3 part.
- Finally pour hot soup (with dried bonito stock) into bowl and eat.

I noticed gimp already became 2.2 but am disappointed its usability wasn't improved. And I met segmentation fault when I chose some blur filters...
