Today I finally updated my website and gave it a new look. I hope everyone likes it. The theme is a customized version of Foppe Hemminga's simple zen theme. I thought it would work well since I wanted a theme that where the header would expand no matter what resolution you view it at and wasn't a fixed pixel size. The fact that's it's a zen theme and I live in Japan just makes it all the bett[...]
It may come as a disappointment to some of the b2evolution developers since they seemed to like the plugins I wrote for b2evo, but I've pretty much decided that I am going to defect and convert my blog to Wordpress. With b2evolution I have had to write and have to maintain plugins to get features that already exist in wordpress plugins that integrate with gallery2 and show images using lightb[...]
Hey everyone, The logins for my website have been updated so registering for a login is slightly different. Those of you who have already registered with the gallery already have a login created for you with the same user and password but those who have not registered will need to register via the register link on the right side of this page. You will be sent and e-mail to confirm the login[...]
From now on, for privacy reasons I decided to change my gallery so that pictures of most friends and family can only be viewed by those who are registered. I realized that taking pictures of friends and posting them so that anyone on the internet can see it makes some people uncomfortable so those pictures will only be viewable by registered users. So if you want to be able to view those pic[...]

I thought it was pretty cool so I added it to the page here. The news stories that I tend to share will probably concern three topics, Environmentalism, Technology, and Japan related news. If yo[...]
I recently got a reader for the computer to read photos from my cell phone's SD card. I just published a bunch of new photos from this Fall in Japan. You can check them out here!
For those of you who can speak/read Japanese, a Japanese version of the website is available. Just click on the link in the navigation bar on the right side here I modified b2evolution to accept a language parameter so that you can display only Japanese or English posts as well as display the navigation and other info in Japanese. It works well. There are a couple loopholes but you shouldn't[...]

Just recently Google Calendar has allowed calendar users to display their calendars publicly. This has been something I've been looking forward to since now people I know can see when I'm busy. You could do this previously with Yahoo Calendar and was lacking in Google's version. Though Yahoo allowed users to publicly publish calendars, Google went a step farther and allowed users to imbed ca[...]
I use b2evolution for my blog on my home page. Recently someone from work tried to leave me a comment here and got the message > `MySQL error!` > > `Unknown column 'comment_author_ID' in 'field list'(Errno=1054)` > > `Your query: INSERT INTO evo_comments( comment_post_ID, comment_type, comment_author_ID, comment_author, comment_author_email, comment_author_url, comment_author_IP, commen[...]
