I often want to delete a lot whitespaces between one word and another and had to hit the “Delete” buttons many times. Now I just discovered this command M-^ (delete-indentation &optional arg) works perfectly for my need.

This is the best chart I have found so far from the NHK website
I was outside when on 15th when the peak happens
by looking at the chart.. it’s definitely getting better. This radiation accident seems like a bit overblown. It was quite scary on 15th when the spark happened. I could not image how much radioactive stuff was leaked near the plant.
Although the current radiative level in Tokyo is not too worried, Tokyo Electric has poorly handled this accident, that cause hundreds of thousands gaijin flee away the country. It’s time for the Japanese government to review this company.

I am still alive. Thank god. I thought I would be buried in the office today.
All the train are stopped and I am walking home now. Everyone is walking. all cars on the road stuck in the traffic jam. Don’t know what is the impact on the north Japan, where is much more close to the epicenter ..
Since came to japan. except the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, this is another big shock I am *lucky* enough to experience.

it’s my third year now doing snowboarding in Japan. It’s become more and more fun after you can control yourself not falling over.
occasionally even if you fall over, it does not hurt so much anymore.
The fresh air and the feeling of shuttle back and force to this boundless snow world do makes me forget the busy life in Tokyo.
Japan is one of the best countries to do the snowboarding i think, there are a lot of snowboarding resorts and the temperature usually is not too low so you can enjoy the sport not worrying too much about the weather.

Buying apple products is just like buying drugs. it draws you to buy another one, the another one even you think it’s not necessary or not quite sure what you really need for that iPhone 3GS while you already have iPhone 3G. Even you think Ipad is just a *bigger* iPod? What’s wrong with my brain and what magic apple use to make me blind to just upgrade their product even faster than a playboy upgrade his girlfriend.

Recently I was asked by a Japanese friend “does Chinese people hate Japan in General?”
To answer your question, maybe yes. I think especially the recent accident between Japan and China.
But If you ask me if I hate Japan?

Having been living in Ebisu for almost 3 years.. it’s a really nice area with lots of restaurants, bars, cafes, I really loved it. but it’s just a bit too expensive if you want to move to a bigger house in ebisu. So I decide to move to yoyogi-uehara, a bit cheaper with a bigger apartment.

I am back from France! It was a great holiday!
Yummy food, especially the Olive ! I start eating Olive after I come back!
Friendly people, however they always trying to teach you how to speak French not English. it’s France@_@
I am absolutely astonished by the beauty of the nature here in France. I have never see such a blue sky in my life.. This is a raw picture that I took in South France I didn’t do any Post process. you just can’t believe it if go there and see by your own eyes.
Almost everything is *old* in France. but people don’t care. They appreciate the well-preserved historical stuff. I stayed one night at my friend’s friend house. That house is built 200 years ago. But a young couple live there. I can’t image this would happen in China. More
