Take the Pew Research Center News IQ test

It's a 12 question quiz covering current events related to the United States.

I was somewhat surprised to learn that I'm more informed than 97% of the US public, according to this quiz. And I don't even live there at the moment...

On a totally unrelated note, this is the first website I've seen that has a toggle for color/black & white, for all those colorblind folks out there.

Life gets a little harder

My faithful computer just had a kernel panic -- the second in as many days.

I've noticed the hard disc sounds...louder than I think it should be. Perhaps it's because it's 5 AM and there are fewer ambient sounds, but I'm...worried.

I need a new computer, and sooner rather than later.

Not sure how I can afford one, though...

The past few weeks have been annoying. I'll leave it at that.

Gas price update

Like I said before, gasoline prices go up every month, on the first of the month. During the month, the price fluctuates, but never back to what it was the month before.

And the price of gasoline for the month of July in Japan:

$6.50 per gallon.

(¥182 per liter, at today's conversion rates)

I don't go very far away from home these days.
