  • Should I buy Windows Vista 32-bit or 64-bit?

    I'm planning to buy a new laptop and am wondering if I should get Vista in the 32-bit or 64-bit version. I don't really need the 64-bit, but it comes with the model I'd like to purchase.

    However, I'm worried about compatibility issues between third-party software (drivers, etc) and the 64-bit OS. Is it worth it getting the 64-bit version and deal with the hassle that might come with it? Like I said, I don't really need it, but maybe it would be better to have. Please advise!

  • How do I get started in graphic design?

    I'd like to learn a little graphic design for on a project I'm working on. Can anyone offer some advice? Where do I start? What software should I get? Is there any good freeware out there? I've only messed with MS Paint a little bit, and on paper I can barely draw a stick figure properly.

  • General maintenance for a toyu heater?

    Japanese residents: my toyu heater is 2 years old and was brand-new when I bought it. Do I need to do any general maintenance on it to keep it working tip-top this winter? I want it to spew out as little carbon monoxide as possible.

  • Japanese speakers - "to iu koto desu"??

    Japanese often seem to append sentences with the statement "to iu koto desu." I'm a little unclear on the exact meaning and usage of this. If I had to guess, I would say it means something like "It is said that..." or "You could say that..." or "You might say that..." In what specific cases would you want to use this phrasing? Thanks in advance!

  • Modifying htaccess file for multiple domains?

    Does anyone know how I can get multiple domain names to redirect to new directories? Right now all my domain names go to the same default directory page and file structure, but I want them to have their own separate file directories.

    I think I can modify the htaccess file to do this. I'm not sure the "Redirect" command would work, because I think it only works within one domain structure. What else can I do?

  • Are there any high-ranking kendoka who aren't Japanese?

    I know there are several non-Japanese who are 4th dan in kendo, probably quite a few who are 5th dan, and possibly even a couple 6th dan. But somehow I suspect there are few, if any, above that level. Are there any non-Japanese who are 7th or (highly unlikely) 8th dan? Have there ever been? Can you provide any names, links? Thanks.

  • How do you give condolences in Japanese?

    A close relative of one of my colleagues here in Japan just passed away. What should I say to him (in Japanese) when he gets back to work? Is it ok or recommended to give a small present of some sort?
