Detective Conan is a Japanese mystery manga series It has the anime version aired on Yomiuri TV. Since it’s very popular among Japanese people, The TV broadcaster and so on release its anime movie every year together and the title of this year is “Detective Conan: Sunflowers of Inferno”. The theme is Sunflower drawings of Vincent van Gogh.
- I couldn’t find which is the special guest star’s voice till the last part.
- I wondered how prestigeous Teitan High School is. Sonoko tells the press release in NY or so. So she might speak English very well.
- Since I always see Kaiun Nandemo Kanteidan(A Japanese TV show like Antiques Roadshow), van Gogh’s drawing is too expensive. Jirokichi paid 300 million USD for one. But it’s very rare that Kanteidan estimates more than 10 million yen.(About 84,000 USD) So the order of the drawing’s price is 10^3 times expensive to Kanteidan’s very rare antiques.
- It has a scene that Kid the Phantom Thief or so blasted the airplane. If it isn’t a terrorism, it’s a major crime like terrorism. It reminds me of that.
- I feel it funny that the special art museum for those van Gogh drawings is settled in a limestone cavern. I feel it very possible that such a cavern is protected by environmental law.
- The criminal of the DC movie may be usual characters among passionate researchers… It is said that scholars are often strongly opinionated.
I felt those.
I used a PC as a router/server machine. I bought it 8 years ago. And it didsn’t work well these months. So I’ve bought a new server. The model is HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2.
I heard that it didn’t support UEFI but BIOS. So it cannot boot the big harddrives like 3TB HDDs without RAID as far as I saw on the net. But I found that small bios_grub partition on the head of the storage enable grub2 to boot from such big drives without RAID. So I put 1MB partition on my harddrive. So now I can boot Ubuntu Server 14.04.2 LTS.
I upgrade my phppBB board from phpBB 3.0.12 to 3.1.2. It’s nearly the clean installation except its database. I thought that it would be the light upgrade. So it was a big deal.
It’s a quite old propaganda that our government use tsunami fund for whaling. But Sea Shepherd and other dolphin freaks still lie so repeatingly. And I pasted the refutation to Facebook very many times, too. Seeing Yamamoto San reprinted my refutaion, I decided to post this text on my entry for many people can do that. So free to reprint this text below.(This text is a bit different from my original. I revised some.)
* I updated on 25 Jan. 2015, for adding explanations of the word difference.
See the audit reports of Japan Red Cross: http://jrc.or.jp/eq-japan2011/
The most of the donations from overseas are made through Red Cross. Those donations are called Tsunami Relief Fund(津波義援金, Tsunami Gienkin). It’s not our government’s Restoration Fund(復興基金, Fukkou Kikin) from our tax. (As you can see, Tsunami Gienkin and Fukkou Kikin are completely different words.)
Read this and understand it!:
The URI below is about the 311 earthquake published on 16 Dec. 2011. It’s on the official website of Minshutou, Democratic Party in Japan. It was the ruling party till late Dec. 2012.
Translation: For the purpose of the regional economical restoration of Fukushima, with considering the prefecture’s request, on the 3rd revised budget, we take steps by PREPARATION OF THE RESTORATION FUND and so on with 534 billion yen in total. With that, we attempt medical services, new inductries like renewable energy, job creation, industrial loction, and so on. In addition, considering the special situation placed in Fukushima Prefecture, we think that we need special legistrations and we consider them to present the draft bills in the next ordinary sessin of the parliament.
Our Reconstruction Agency of the government has released these:
Translation: The Management and Operation Guidelines Recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake Grant Fund
Translation: 13 Jan. Heisei 24(* 2012)
Translation: 3. Operation of the Great East Japan Earthquake Grant Fund
Translation: +- 1. Creation of the Great East Japan Earthquake Grant Fund
Translation: the Great East Japan Earthquake Grant Fund is prepared by the grant-in-aid from the state(Japanese government). Still more, in the cases that plural ministers in charge issued the fund for the creation of the fund, same fund receive that and separate and fix by ministers in charge.

>But this year, onlookers are not only taking issue with the whaling expedition itself, but how extra government funding for the trip is being drawn from money intended to be used for reconstruction efforts from the March 11 disasters. The funds are from Japan’s own national budget, not charitable donations from overseas.
If you want to cause that our government uses the tsunami fund of Red Cross and so on with the donation from overseas, prove it!
I successfully upgraded Linux Mint from 17 to 17.1 yesterday by How to upgrade from Linux Mint 17 to 17.1
>As excited as we are about 17.1, upgrading blindly for the sake of running the latest version does not make much sense, especially if you’re already happy with 17 and everything is working perfectly.
But I haven’t found any problems about Linux Mint 17… I wanted to examine 17.1.
Well, it’s good to do that as a member of Linux Mint Japan Members although I’m actually a lazy member.
I installed InspIRCd, an IRC server and anope, an IRC service daemon on 27 Sept.2014. I wish that there was a Japanese conservative IRC network free from anti-Japanese leftists’ oppression about political issues including historical recognitions, whaling, and so on in trend of the world’s IRC network technology. So with that installations, I founded SakuraDoori, a personal IRC network with only one server. The server name is irc.emmanuelc.dix.asia and its port is +6697 (SSL).
Probably, only a few people come. But I felt like doing that by seeing irc.juggler.jp, the most popular server of IRC@2ch(2ch.net / 2ch.sc), the most popular Japanese IRC network got independent because of 2ch’s trouble.
The threads named “Rather Shinkansen than TGV” are a series of 2ch‘s Korea Forum, about railway technology and so on since Korea imports TGV. I don’t notify on my blogs but I update “TGVより新幹線 & 台湾新幹線 過去ログ“, my archive of that series when the new thread took over. (◆WHhh4nwOyo, another person maintain another website named 「TGVより新幹線 ☆」アーカイブ ～KTXうぉっちんぐ.)
I learned how excellent Shinkansen is by seeing mod-5’s archive. Now there’s the official 50th aniversary website of Tokaido Shinkansen(Facebook) and I’m also in festive wood.
By the way, now part 241 of the series is dublicated and part 242 is actually part 243. But the current 244th thread’s number is named Part 243, not fixed. Maybe, I will put the dublicated log pages named “part 241”.
And I’m thinking of changing Image-Uploadable Reserve Webboard from the current to another software. (Use it when you cannot post comments on this blog or so.)
Des Liens de Emmanuel Chanel is my links page. It’s one of my oldest web pages.
The forum sites for 2ch cluster
- 2ch.sc(I added it to the exlanation of 2ch.)
Hiroyuki, the founder of 2ch has been kicked out for 6 months and founded 2ch.sc instead. Since 2ch is one of the biggest Japanese forum site, everyone Japanese knows that event.
- open 2ch is an alternative website of 2ch, founded by satoru, a web creator. All the posting on its forums are licensed under public domain. Many people of 2ch moved to it since 2ch has forbidden them to copy the posts on some of its forums, by changing their forum rule. I got to know in same period as 2ch.sc founded. But I haven’t add the link on the links page.

I found that this blog’s comment function for non-registered readers didn’t work. It was the problem of a certain directory’s permission. Now I’ve fixed. I’m very sad about that since I cannot see the readers’ responses.
I installed two 8GB memories as the addition to the 8GB memory since I use the desktop PC heavily. I use Linux Mint that doesn’t require so much memory, though. After that, I installed Linux Mint 17 Qiana MATE 64bit. It got quite faster with 24GB memory. But its CPU cooler is gone. So I couldn’t post this entry till now. (Now I’ve installed a new cooler. And the situation looks stable.)
When I installed Linux Mint 16, about its ibus, I said:
At first, like switching off ibus, I did ibus to alphanumeric mode with the key of switching input software. (the default key is [Super] + ) but looks that it’s set for us to use [全角/半角](Zenkaku_Hankaku) key. But as he points, ibus doesn’t show the status whether alphanumeric or Kanji.
But on the ibus of Linux Mint 17, I can see that status on the cursol when I push [全角/半角](Zenkaku_Hankaku) key.
