Why such a useless picture? if ever there was an excuse for a full-length body shot, this is it! And I still want my gravatar.

I would like a better font for the news articles. Very cluttered presentation all round.

I'd also like to know what time Koichi Ishibashi goes home when Ishihara's in the building.

I was just talking to a bloke who said he had to work from 10 a.m. until 4 a.m. the following day, seven days a week. This is because "Japanese people are very hard worker", he claims. I asked him what he did yesterday, and it was meeting-gu and making document-to.

Thus I doubt efficiency is the watchword here. If you need more than two days to do a day's work, you're doing it wrong. But only in Japan would people need to be told to go home. Shiters, they don't even need to go home - just get out of the bleeding office and do something else. But that might take imagination, I suppose.

I used to know a bloke who put exactly this kind of mask on in busy places. He thought it was a hilarious joke, to show that Japanese people "never say anything". I pointed out that I'd like him to try a similar cultural experiment in Bogota, or Manchester.

The kind of person who does this is the kind of person who describes himself as "wacky", and, regardless of how humdrum his daily occupation, tells every new member of staff "You do realise, we're all completely mad".

It's generally a very good indicator of an extremely dreary person.

Seriously - why does my avatar no longer appear?

Now why did I have an avatar before, but not now?

I don't see any purpose to the bizarre new login requirements, going through either facebook or email. Unnecessarily circuitous.
