::: ヤフオク! Yahoo Auction :::
ワタシの古~いPowerBookG3に最近Linuxを入れてみたが、
コマンドばっかりでさっぱりわからない。
無謀にもWindowsPCとの共有を設定しよう!と意気込んではみたが、
やっぱりできない!!!
イライライライラをみていた彼氏が「できるFedraCore4」という本を買ってきてくれた。

I recently installed FedraCore4 into my old old PC PowerBook G3.
Yes I did installed but I didn't realise that I needed the knowledge for command lines etc etc...
But I was trying fileshare setting between WindowsPC and FedraCorePC.
But offcourse my knowledge never win against my desire.
So I was stressed out so much...
My BF was kind enough to buy a textbook for "Easy FedraCore4" so that he doesn't need to put up with my irritated behaviour.

ちょっといじろうか、と意気込んでいた矢先、昨夜から起動画面に

So I was going to try study with that book then you know what happened???

「ACアダプタの電源を使用しています」

というMSGと

「バッテリを使用しています」

というMSGが交互に出始めた。

The message appeared on PC screen says

"Currently using battery" switching with "Currently using AC adapter"

????I was a bit confused about the message but I decided to go to sleep last night.


気にもせず、そのまま寝たのだが、
夜中、妙にいつもより時計の「カチカチ」音が大きい。
眠れないので時計の電池を抜こうとおもうと、時計ではない。
じゃあ、台所の水が落ちているのかと、台所にいくが、水は出ていない。。。


But I woke up in the middle of night hearing tick-tick sound.
I thought I was sensitive with sound last night and it was just clock...
So I decided to go and take off the battery out from that clock.
But when I went to pick it up, it wasn't clock that was making noise.
So I said, well is that the tap leaking?
But when I went to the kitchen sink there is no water dropping from the tap.

?????

寝ぼけながら、カチカチ音がするほうにいくと、ACアダプタから聞こえてくるのだ!
「時限爆弾かよ!」とちょっとびっくりして、でも、爆発すると怖いので、
AC電源をそのまま抜いてとりあえず、ねた。

So I was concentrated my mind and went closer towards the sound.
Then I could hear the tick-tick sound from the AC Adapter of my PowerBookG3.
My goodness is that the bomb or what? I thought.
Anyway that was so scary to hear tick-tick sound from the one you weren't expected eh? I pluged out the AC adapter. then stopped.

今朝、サポセンでいつも言っているように、
「バッテリー、周辺機器すべてはずし、ACアダプターからの起動ができるかどうか試してみてください」
と自分に言い聞かせためすが起動はせず。
相変わらずACからはカチカチ音がしている。。。

あきらめた。もともとの円盤型ACがすぐに壊れて、1万円も出してサードパーティのACを買ったのに!

といっても始まらない。どうにもならないし、サポ外だし(w)、
あきらめたほうがいい。。。

As I say at the PC support centre, I was asking myself
"Well, have you tried to switch it on without battery and other devices?"
I tried but my computer wouldn't start...
And the AC adapter was making that terrible noise.

So I gave up the AC adapter is broken now.
The original one got broken already so I bought this third party made AC adapter. The price was 10000yen...

But nothing I can do either. If I'm not using third party ones I can not get support anyways.
I'd better shut up and give up...

というわけで、最近かじり始めたYahooAuctionでなんとかならんのかと。。。
始めたといっても、もっぱら見て、買うほうだけど。
売るのはなんだかめんどくさいし。評価とかめんどくさいし。
結局めんどくさいから、人のアカウントで買ってもらっているけど(w)

So I checked up the website "Yahoo Auction" that I started recently.
Well not really selling anything but buying or looking.
I guess I am too lazy to sell because you will need to send it out etc.
Then the buyer evaluates your service too.
Anyway I am using someone else's account but...

なんでもある。なんでもある。なんでもある。
ほんとに、何でもある!!!

They have everything, yes just everything.
Really everything!!!!

でも、欲張って「検索」ボックスに入力すると「カテゴリがない!」と注意される。

But if you put too many key words, they warn you saying
"There is no category you want."

取り合えず、「PowerBookG3」 「ACアダプタ」で検索してみた!
そしたら、出てきた、出てきた!やっぱり何でもあった。

I finally searched "PowerBook G3" and "AC Adapter"
Yes they had everything!!!

というわけで、今週末あたり、またヤフオク(外注)だ!

I will be auctioning this weekend again.(Not my account but...)

::: Energetic Grandad :::
It's my long weekend holiday this week. I have Friday, Saturday and Sunday off from work.
Happy to be alone and go shopping by myself.
I went to the massage place as usual for my weekend.
And I decided to go window shopping around, Nanba towards Honmachi. There is a long archade with full of small shops.

First I went to Nanba walk which is the long archade in the basement where su bway is.
Looking around the shops with smile on my face and suddenly from nowhere, an old guy like my grandad's age came to talk to me...
He said "Ochademo dou desuka?" that means would you like to go and have coffee with me? I looked at that guy when I went pass through him but instantly my eyes just moved forward and I kept walking...pretend I saw or heard nothing...

It was really a guy like grandad trying to pick me up...

I just believe that grandad must have been energetic enough to pick up someone.

Anyway it was a good day, I bought few long sleeve T-Shirts for Autumn season.
It is getting chillie in the morning and at night.
All the shops selling Autumn-Winter clothes now.
It is a bit strange how quickly the season changes.

The old saying in Japan says Woman's feeling is like an Autumn Sky...
That means Autumn sky changes so quickly.

Off course everything is changing.

::: Day Off; just another good day :::
It was my day off today.
I choose my neice's Birthday present over internet.
Time just flies, she is turning to age of 4.

今日は姪っ子の誕生日プレゼントをオンラインで購入。
光陰矢のごとし、もう4歳になる。

I took it easy today, did some washings and vacuming, grosary shopping...
And just had nap.

今日のオヤスミは、ゆっくりしてた。洗濯に掃除、買い物。
そして、昼寝♪

Just another Great day I just had.

ちょっとしたいい一日だった。

It is amazing you become happy for just being yourself and living in the ordinary days happy.

時々、すごいな~とおもう、
ただ普通の一日なのに、自分の生活を幸せに思えることがあること。

I enjoy my job now. Got evaluation report for my PC support job from my leader and it was 99 points out of 100points.
I was happy to receive that. Good Good.

仕事は楽しいし、リーダーからそこそこの評価レポートもいただくことができた。

It is a bit sad to leave this job at the end of this year.
But leaving to another country is good thing too.
I can see many different things and I can learn more, think more.
I just have many possibilities anywhere.

仕事を今年一杯で離れることはさびしい。
でも、また違う国に行くこともいいことだと思う。
たくさんのことをみて、学べて、そして何よりも考えることができる。
ただただ、自分の前にたくさんの可能性がある。

So lucky, so happy.
Nice friends, great work, sweet BF.

ほんとに、ラッキーだし、幸せだ。
友達がいて、仕事があり、おまけに彼氏までいてくれてる。

I have everything i need. my life is just full of love and happiness.
Thank god.

すべてがそろっていて、ホントに、幸せ。
神様ありがとう!と思ってしまう。

Don't you have the moment you feel that way???
I personally think you can be like that too but sometimes your brain stops you think like that. That's how you brought up.
JOY is not always great, Joy is selfish feeling etc, etc...
Bullshit.

そういう気持ちになる瞬間って、ないかしら?
本来なら、人間そういう気持ちになれるはず。でもあまりにも脳みそで考えすぎるから、そういう素朴な幸せな感情を頭でとめてしまうのでしょう。
また、そういう風に育ってきてしまったのかも。
たとえば、常に幸せを感じるのはいいこととは限らないとか、幸せと感じることは自分勝手とか・・・。
うそっっぱちだと、わたしは思うけれど。

How you feel your life is how you are seeing your life, how you evaluates your life and yourself.
What do ya think???
自分の人生をどういう風に感じるかは、それをどう見ているか、どう評価しているのかで変わってくる。
どう思います?

::: Takamatsu Trip - Day 2 (Naoshima-Arty Island):::
We planned this trip to visit Naoshima-island where all art things happening.

二日目はジェーンとワタシで直島(香川県)への旅を計画。
アートな場所。

Jane's colliegue told her about this place.

ジェーンの同僚が教えてくれたらしい。

We caught a ferry first in the morning from Takamatsu port and had a 1 hour ride to Naoshima Island. When we arrived Naoshima we rent a bike again and took a whole island trip together. It was a bit tiring but nice.
Acoording to the weather forecasts they said it would be raining all day. But you know what ? it turned out to be the nicest day over our trip especially in the afternoon we had blue sky there.

朝一番で高松港から一時間かけてフェリーにのり、直島へ。
到着し、島の観光案内所で「レンタル自転車」を500円で借りた。そして、島一周のチャリの旅へ!ちょっと疲れたけれど、よかった~♪
天気予報だと雨だといっていたが、なんと、今回の旅行の中で一番よい天気に恵まれた。
特に午後からは青空が広がった!

Well well the first place we visited is the site where we can see all the site project/ installation called IE-Project. It is about creating art work using really old houses such as over the 200 years old or so.
You can see one site on the photo. It is called KADOYA house.

まず私たちは宮之浦港から本村港へチャリで移動。
そこに「家プロジェクト」と呼ばれるサイトプロジェクト=インす多レーションがある。
この写真は200年以上たっている旧家を使ったアートプロジェクト。
「角屋」の中の写真。

b0038810_23565151.jpg
According to the lady, 125 artists were involved for this work and each one sets the speed of the counter of digital clock, some is really fast, other is really slow. it is amazing. And the water over these counter clock they used Setonaikai sea's water.

一つ一つの明かりは、タイマーでセットされた数字が0から9までをカウントしている。あるものは早く、あるものは遅く数字が変わっていく。ほんとうにすごい。数字を覆っている水は瀬戸内海の海水を使っているようだ。
このプロジェクトには125人のアーティストが携わり、それぞれがタイマーカウンターの速さを決めたらしい。



This is another one called Go'o Shrine.


これはGo'o Shrineと呼ばれるサイト。
b0038810_024447.jpg
They actually present the whole Shitoh Shrine as a art work. The stairs you see in the middle of the photo is clear as. It looked to me, that was a glass or some kind of acryl block.
This site is connected to the other section under the shrine as you see over the next few photos.

the last one we saw was amazing too but we couldn't take photos at all because it was the site were we could see only pitch black.
This is Honmura Port.
b0038810_062789.jpg
After that we went to benesse art musium and on the way there we saw so many public art done by the artists Taro Okamoto, Yayoi Kusama etc etc.

After visited Benesse Art museum we went to Chichu Art Museum. Unfortunately no one allowed to bring camere there so we couldn't take any pictures, but it was amazing. The whole building were built for each individual art project. Just AMAZING. The admission fee was a bit over our budget 2000yen but still good to see.

The whole area is just nice. You can read article in English from here.

After Chichu Art Museum we caught ferry over to Takamatsu again and we just had a rest pretty much.

It was a short trip but really arty refreshing trip.
