wind up the affairs of the events joined last week end

Last week end I joined three events, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The one on Friday it was a small one and I could cope it within the day. But on Saturday and Sunday I bought more than 100 copies and 85 copies for each and I could not do it but just to report the quick result, which I could not sort the titles and purchasing lists.

So I started to do it from Thursday and it took two days each. Thursday and Friday for the last Saturday event and Saturday and Sunday for the last Sunday event.

Now I finished all the work and can have a small rest.

This month we do not have so many events and currently no plan to join until the month-end 3 days event only. I wonder how many requests coming to the event.

nomijoshi #4

のみじょし 4 (バンブーコミックス) | 迂闊 |本 | 通販 | AmazonThe most favorite comic series of mine. The latest copy is issued at the last month. Of course I reserved order of the book when they announced it I could get it just after launching, and enjoyed the evening, eating meal. It is not very polite of course but could not wait for the end of it.

The theme of the title is how to drink booze with happy air. So various sake, beer, wine, whisky, etc with more various dishes. Three girls (29 years old), one married and two bachelor, sometime gathering, most of time independent, drink and eat with quite interesting episodes.

I can enjoy it repeatedly, day by day, week by week. I hope they do not finish the story and mark end of the title.

mouse cleaning

It is Sunday and today I do not have any plan.

So I cleaned the items around me.

When I was playing a game, suddenly the mouse pointer did not move smoothly. I could not find the reason so I stopped to play it and cleaned some other items, waiting for the operant retrieving. But after 30 minutes it did not work well.

So I cleaned the bottom face of the mouse and mouse pad with the cleaning paper.

After that the mouse got the normal operation.

I might lost the 30 minutes. But while the time I could clean up some other equipments so it was not a full futility.

The weather forecast said it would be clouded but some area it would rain. One of it was my area and it rained from the late morning. I was happy I did not have any plan but could stay home.

CDO - sending e-mail from the Windows environment

I am now very, very existed with the service I found a few days ago.

In fact it is a very old one from the age of the Windows 2000. I was a donkey who could not find it.

I have to make a lot of correspondences with the customers about various titles, confirming the order, reporting the result of the order, asking debit etc. I did it most of all manually and part of them with the spreading e-mail program.

In case of using the program I have to prepare the addressee list and variable items by the .csv file and indicate each items to the keyword of the program every time, manually. Even so it helped to decrease the working time very much.

But I have been wanting the program of sending the email directly from the Access VBA. At last I tried to find it and found it in a few minutes. Unbelievable. Until today I had made three programs which can send the message directly.

Now I am making a general use subroutine to send the mail and call from suitable programs with some parameters, e-mail address, nickname, message and attached files.

It must decrease the workload drastically. Now I am so happy to find the module.

God bless the M$.

The new project (while a small one)

I am now trying to make a list of the events coming soon to those who are interested in.

To choose the data in the past I select the events those who made business in the past two years.

Then I will send the list to the customers to arouse to join the events and give me the requests.

I do not know if it works well or not but from the day before yesterday I started to make a small program.

Now I finish almost half of the all and expect to finish it by the tomorrow evening.

If it worked well I would be happy. And I hope the customers will be happy too.

I may report the following in the future but not sure. Now I am very easy to forget everything.

3 events in a day

Yesterday I joined 3 events. The two were @ Big Sight and the last one was @ TRC. Each orders volume was not so much and I tried the first one opening at 10:30. I could get into the hall after 5 minutes and finished all the booths in 20 minutes (5 booths).

At that moment the other event had not open yet. I moved to the next hall and found just after 11:01 they already cleared general waiting people and I could enter the hall without waiting. This event I made a queue to purchase the stuff which was the first time in the day and the last time. I visited 14 booths, one the circle did not present, the other one the circle could not prepare the new title for the event so I could get stuffs at 12 booths.

My friend joined the event as the circle so at first we would take a coffee after closing but now I had to move to the TRC as soon as possible. So I went to his booth and talked a few words that sorry not to get a coffee today.

I went back to the JR line and changed the line to the monorail. I got the TRC @ 12:00. I went 5 booths and got all. I left the event at 12:30.

In total I 24 booths to go and got some results at 22 booths which rate must be something, especially considering the last event I had to move about 30 minutes by train. To be late, to be sold out increasing but I was lucky.

I went back home but at the last bus stop I had a trouble. The bus I wanted to get on seemed to leave the stop earlier than the schedule. I got there 4 or 5 minutes before the time-line but it did not come. At last I had to wait about 30 minutes to the next line.

But I was satisfied the results of the events on Sunday. I wonder if every time I could achieve such a high rate, which must not possible I know.

week end holidays

This Sunday no events schedule which made me taking rest fully. In fact it means no money coming, but from the week of Aug. 5 (that is from Aug. 10 to 12), Aug. 19 and Aug. 26 I joined the events, all the week ends. Sept. 2 I did not join but I had to work from Aug. 30 to close the results of the events and sent most of them by Sept. 6th. So this week end is almost no work which seems quite happy.

I have not do the net-surf for several months. I visited the old sites one by one, consuming the time. One blogger is under the hazard by the last typhoon whose internet connection unable and updating the blog from the net-coffee shop nearby. I hope the line come back as soon as possible.

So today I will not do anything but just wasting time, what a gracious life it is.

the new occupation

I started the new part time work from Aug. 20, on Monday to Wednesday, from 9:00 am to 16:00 pm.

The working is very simple and easy so I hope they do not make kiss-off after the test period.

The problem is on the way of go and back. It takes almost one hour and half which prevents my daily life strictly. I can not do almost anything about the primary work concerned to the doujinshi in those three days.

It may be better to look for the other one at nearer place but I can not decide it yet, because the working environment is quite good. Full air conditioning room and easy work which is so tempting. I am really involved what to do now.

rainy day

It rains today, which is really after a long time. It is not so hot as yesterday, when the temperature recorded 35℃.

I was outside walking to certain company to take an interview. It was unbelievable that I was walking to the reverse direction from the station for 15 min. I checked the map again and again, and at last I noticed I missed.

I called up the rep. who I will to meet and apologized the late coming. He assured no worry and I got there about 20 min. late.

At the way back the bus advertising screen showed a horoscope and my sign showed to mind the error. So it goes.

Today I will join a public employment security office. They update the record on Monday evening so I can get more information coming new than the other day. I hope I can get a suitable occupation but in fact it is quite difficult. I know it from my experience in the past.

interview

I will take a job interview this afternoon. So now I strain very much. Anyway it will not work, I know in advance, because I have a lot of the afraid result in the past. How can I manage myself ... I have the faintest idea. Just playing the game and consuming the time to the promised hour.

The company wants those who joins the mail order general affair, which is almost same as the current occupation of mine. I think they are interested in it.

They sent an e-mail about some questions but they did not treat about it at all.

Time flies like an allow ... it is the false for me now.

Package making

To post the one tomorrow I made a package today. I underestimated the volume of the items and the package was almost full.

I will receive the last item this evening. I wonder if I can include it into the last clearance or not because I do not know the size of the item yet. May it works.

To input the items it requires some technique. At the first time I could not put them all but two packages because of their size and shape, while the box still remained some space.

So I put out all the items and changed the angle. This time it worked and I could put all the items into the box and no space remained but the last item only.

I am waiting for the arrival of the item and crossing the fingers so that I can put it into the last place.

anime collabo coffee shop

I will be there tomorrow to purchase some items. They require to reserve the seat in advance. So I did it and the prize was one coaster, A3 poster (random) and one drink.

I will be there on 11 a.m. and can stay 40 minutes. In the time I have to purchase some key holders with six variations but they sell them random so I have to purchase more than six. If I were too lucky I could save the budget minimum. Concurrently I have to get the coasters to order drinks, drinks and drinks. The coaster features 10 variation so I am not sure if I can get the most favorite one or not.

And I am afraid so many drinks I will have to consume. If they do not feature the sugar free one. It is terrible.

Anyway I will enjoy it only 40 minutes though.

still in som ni a

I have been in som ni a for more than 30 years because of the depression. Now I take herbal medicine, bis in die and booze to sleep.

Last night I tried to do with the small bulb turning on, which helped to sleep well they said. But it was the worst.

I woke up every one hour from 23:30 to 3:30 am. After that I could not sleep and woke up at 4:30.

I think in my brain something is broken and I can not get along the normal life. So it goes.

The weather forecast said it would be rainy but this morning it was fine. I will start the new week, to forget a bad expression.

the lost shoulder bag

Yesterday I left it at the bus. After some shopping at a super market, passed the register, then when I put the items into the bag I found I lost it. I was in panic. While having the alternative plastic bag, I asked the market rep. a bag and put the items.

Then I moved to the bus stop. There were some buses waiting for leaving. I got on board one bus and asked the driver what should I do if I lost a thing in the bus.

The driver asked me which kind of the thing I lost.

I replied the shoulder bag.

The driver asked me again which kind of shoulder bag it was.

I explained, color was gray, the size this big, then the drive pull out the bag from the back of his driving seat and asked if it was that.

Yes, it was. What a coincidence it was.

I was as if an audience that a magician put a rabbit from his hat.

I left home by the other line and in the bus they showed the horoscope and my constellation was 12th, the worst.

In fact, when I noticed that I lost the shoulder bag, I was so confused that I lost another item at the super market. I called up them from home and found it was at the service counter. I will visit there this evening.

Terrible day it was.

ちか At The New Post Office

So that at last I can start the various process of the working at the new site.

Last Monday I post 12 packages which must be sent far earlier.

Of course I brought them to the new post office, where I went only a few times before.

It was also a small office which size matched the previous one I used to. Only two or three rep. treat the postage and almost same numbers carried the security and banking operation.

When I went to the office no other visitors so they could process all the packages but they made a mistake of charging one package as air in spite of the SAL. So they cancelled all the working and repeat the same operation again. It was funny. I think the machine can cancel only one transaction but the rep. did not know how to do it.

Coincidentally I took a holiday on Tuesday and brought two packages again.

This day the other rep. who was not at the office yesterday fixed them and said the appreciation for big volume of posting. In fact it cost some 60,000 yen or more. They asked me if such a big volume happened frequently so I denied it. It is very seldom, unfortunately.

breaking a display

I use three displays: two 1920*1200 and one 1920*1080. When moving to the new site, I missed to attach the bigger displays to the holder. So I tried to replace them last night, half in the bag as usual night. It worked bad and I dropped the older, heavier one twice and it became not working.

It was so sad but as I was in soak so did not disappointed and placed the new display at that moment. The new one features 2560 * 1440 big display. It will reach in a day or two. I am looking forward it now.

I never broke the old one because I wanted the new one. If so I would broke the smallest one.

Main Machine Temporary Wireless LAN Succeeded

The new site does not feature the internet connection environment and it take about a month to install it. While the time I can not stop the business so I purchased a wireless USB LAN adapter and installed it to the main machine.

It worked without any problem and showed enough speed. I think it would not necessary to install the wire cable but I am a conventional man and can not trust the wireless router perfect. In fact now I write this message through the wireless environment and do not feel any inconvenience but still there remains some suspicion.

Anyway, I will move the machine to the new site on Sunday. I hope I can cope it in a day.

All events gone

I am on the way home from the last event of the Golden Week.

At last I joined seven evetns from 29th to today. Two days two events a day, one events 2 days long. One awful result (the largest budged lost), others were so so.

Today I lost the biggest game which was strongly requested. I went to the booth at first but there was already a long queue. After waiting 40 minutes, some 30 or 40 one ahead purchased the last stock. I regret I had to leave home earlier this morning. Maybe only thirty minutes divided the destiny. So it goes.

I will report the result to the customers at home.

After that, with a private affair which changes my life drastically, I have to suspend all the doujin works for a whole, then re-start it after several weeks at the new place. All customers understand it and now are waiting for the final report.

events rushing

From yesterday to the day after tomorrow I will join the events everyday. May 3rd and 4th the Super Comic City, 5th COMITIA & Treasure FESTA and 6th REITAISAI. It is something more tough than the summer and winter 3 days event which number of the events are more, each events feature their each system. I have to leave home different time according to their opening time, to be lead to different waiting zone each days, which make me tired but it is my business.

Unfortunately I have a private affair which is very serious which prevents the after care of the events, to sort the titles, reporting the results and deliver. This time I have to first this matter than the doujin works so I have to ask the customers to wait for a few weeks to fix the game titles. It is some pressure fore me but no choice.

So it goes and no choice. I have to accept everything as it is. It is life.

golden events week

It is the first day of the events week today. I joined one which I could achieve all the items requested. The total circles are about 40 and it is not very usual to achieve all. So now I am happy.

I met old friends who were taking the stuff doing of the event, where they said two friends passed in last a year. sigh. They were too young.

So it goes. Men must die faster or later. I might be killed by an accident in a minutes.

Anyway, tomorrow, on 30th, May 3rd & 4th, 5th and 6th I will join the events one by one. It is the beginning of the longest yard.

Note PC with mobile router

I tried a shop WiFi on Saturday and was clear about how to connect the WWW. Now if I pay a cup of coffee @210 to @290 I can use the note PC with the internet.

On Sunday I received the free SIM chip from a provider which I made a contract to use it around @1,000 per month, with the starting price around @3.500. I set the chip to the mobile router but it did not work at first. I called up the provider help desk and they agreed the setting of the router was correct, but they got away from further imagination but to ask to the router maker. I did it several times with the previous SIM chip, which I cut the agreement just after the bum out help service. They said as far as they did not check the affirmation action of the router and their SIM they did not assure anything. I turned off the telephone and stopped the contract in a second. Then I looked for the other provider which supplied the free SIM and after confirming they did the affirmation between their SIM and the router I had and make the contract. They sent me the SIM by the parcel an two nights.

So I put off the chip and set the old router, failed again, removed it and set to the new one and tried the reset button. Then after turning on the router the note PC suddenly succeeded to connect to the WWW. Wow it is SOMETHING. Now I can connect the internet wherever I am if I have this router and it has enough battery power.

I had been announcing the next update would be **** to the blog when I knew I had been out and could not use the PC. Now I have the note and the router so I can update the page whenever I want. You can imagine how happy am I.

repository editor to Windows home

It is first time for me to use the home version so I did not know it did not feature the repository editor. I had been looking for it for a few days and at last knew that it did not have the editor.

So I googled it and found easily install it to the home version.

Mainly I love the log in method with alt+ctrl+del, with the user id and password, which is very common and used to from the very early days with computers.

Maybe the M$ thinks the pc are mainly used by only one people so it is not necessary to input the user id to shorten the log in time and operation. But unfortunately I am an conventional and old man. I stick to the old way.

I read the other article to prevent the windows update from automatic mode to delay the install certain days by the policy editor too. Hum ... in fact the end of last year they made a critical bug into the print driver so that it made impossible to print anything by my printer. The printer maker featured the special page to redeem the trouble to uninstall the update modules with the modules id numbers, which was plural. In my case only one module corresponded but it made the fatal error. So I uninstalled the update module and retrieved the condition. It took some two or three months to recover the error.

Maybe it would be better to wait for some weeks or more to update the modules. While the time a lot of kind and innocent users report the bugs and if the M$ are so honest they would recover them.

the new note PC

It works fine. I tried a tablet a few years ago. But I could not operate it ably without keyboard and mouse. I purchased them and as the result it was not a tablet anymore, still the capability was the tablet and not pc. I gave up and stopped to use it.

This time the weight of the note is only 900 g which matches the old tablet, a keyboard and mouse. I might use an old mouse but it would not mandatory.

The current problem is wifi connection. I missed the operation to find the wifi access point and ASUS help desk indicated the correct way yesterday. I will try it this lunch time if possible.

Anyway I will purchase the portable router chip which make possible to connect to the www at my mother's house. Then I can access here anytime when I want.

Again I understand myself as an old age who requires the keyboard to use the equipment. I can not tap the screen directly. So it goes.

note pc

I purchased a note pc. ASUS E203NA. It features Windows 10 home and no other applications. I will use it for www access only, maybe.

I installed anti-virus program, modified some IME properties, copied the user dictionary which was all. Maybe it would be better to have some English-Japanese dictionaries to make this composition but not mandatory, because it is not necessary to do by the note but to do by this machine when I am at home.

Main upload stuff must be regular news streams.

I have not check if the place I will use it they support the WiFi, which will be clear this lunch time. If not I have to look for some place where I can access to the www nearby.

This afternoon the last company called me up and asked to work at their site. Unbelievable. Of course I accepted the offer.

From April 5, I will be at office on every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. In the future maybe on Wednesday too but not sure. In the case I can not update the blog about noon each days. I wonder if I will purchase a cheap note PC or not. It depends on the working place condition. For the time being I have to wait and see.

HDD

I have a external hard disk box which can contain six disks in maximum. In fact it s only the simple box which does not feature any advanced characters, striping, or server function. Every hard disk requires one USB cable to the PC itself. I designed the box and asked the little factory to make the box. It took some 20K yen. Still much tough with 2mm aluminium. I put PC's power supply, two fans and 6 power cables from the power supply.

I buy external box and put out the terminal base and use it to connect the disk and PC. The box price is about 3K. No use the rest of them. Now it contains three disks. No further data necessary for the time being so the rest of them are empty.

Recently the system does not recognize the first disk when I turn on the power switch. The secon and the third disks no problem. I though the first disk must die. So I purchased one 4 TB disk. The biggest size in the past. Unfortunately the base did not fit the 4 TB size. It did not even start the motor when I connect the base and power, and turned on the switch. So I gave up to install it into the box but the PC itself.

While the time I removed the first disk which I considered to die. But just to test it if the power comes from the supply and confirmed it was ok, then I connected the power into the base and the disk started. The system recognized the disk. It was only a loose connection. So I gained 2 TB now.

Then I opened the PC itself and installed the 4 TB HDD. There remained one SATA port, and power supply too, enough space to accept the HDD itself. No problem to install and the system recognized it normally.

And after that when I thought which kind of data to be store there, I opened the explorer and found the data disk volume was only 250 GB and most of them had been consumed. I did not notice it at all so I was very lucky.

I moved about 150 GB data to the new one and now the old data disk has about 170 GB free space. No problem now.

So it was a kind of crowded day for me.

shoulder bag

I used a shoulder bag when I was working at office for long time. It is a very tough bag except the belt hook, which rubs easily and I had to exchange it to the new parts regularly. It took about two or three weeks to do so I had two spare belts.

Anyway, after I resigned the occupation I changed the bag from shoulder type to west pouch, which could contain A4 size maximum.

Today I will go to an interview with the old days' working style so I can not use the west pouch.

But for a long time the previous shoulder bag has been lost in the room, which is really a mess. So the last interviews I used a toto bag instead.

This morning I tried to find the shoulder bag again and at last I found it from the bottom of an box which one big plastic bag fill of empty envelops. It reminds me an old days when I was working at the office, which was almost a nightmare, had to take much more medicine to keep my mind normal.

Everything passed and now I am much happier. Even the income is drastically less. Still I can get along with the current wedge and if I can succeed the interview it will be better.

It is the spring. I am happy I can enjoy this good season.

Unfortunately we did not have autumn last year. The winter came just after summer in a week. It was awful and terrible year last year.

I hope it will be a good year. I washed my cloth in the afternoon. Except the thick bath towel rest of them became dry enough with the sunshine and weak wind.

Tomorrow I have an appointment of an interview. May I succeed.

boring days

No work, no wedge, nothing to do but just looking for the new occupation at the office once a week. Today I will go there and try. Every Monday they update the information so Tuesday we can get a lot of new offer.

Killing time by playing Mine Sweeper every day.

I can see that the suitable volume of work helps a lot to the life worth living.

I hope I can get the new occupation soon.

spring storm

While the wind is not very strong, it seems better to say the sleet than the rain in the morning. And now, oh, it snows. It leaves on the ground, not melting. Usually we have little snow recently, which comes on February or March. I do not have a memory that it snowed last winter. IMG_0468.JPGCurrently the road keeps the surface but not sure it can maintain the condition.

From yesterday, checking the weather forecast, I decided I would not go out anywhere today. It works.

an event yesterday

I joined an event @ Big Sight yesterday. Arriving at 8:30 which starts from 10:00. We made a queue in the East 7 hall where most of the floor was filled up by the people. In fact, before the opening it was full so the event holder moved the queue outside the hall into the event halls (from East 1 to East 6) passage and made a space to those who still come late.

After 20 minutes I could enter the event halls. It was a big event but my purpose was only a few (actually eight circles) so I could finish the circulation only seventeen minutes and got all the items I had to get.

But I could not leave the event. One customer asked to get the paper rally and try the lottery, which started from 12:30. I had to wait almost two hours. And the twice trial of the lottery left the last prize only. So it goes.

This time they did not open the arte/varie genre so I was a little disappointed. Last time I purchased a glass there, which featured beautiful scene with cats, flowers and butterflies.

I drink booze with a glass which tastes better before. Only the feeling but the mood is important, isn't it?

the third interview appointment

Now I am looking for new part time occupation.

I got an interview on Sunday afternoon, which company did not screen candidates on the basis of the documents but interviewed every applicants. In fact I did not notice their working condition in precise and knew they work everyday conc. the week end and applied the monthly working schedule every month. So I hardly join this company if they offer. Because on Sunday and/or holidays I would have to join the events to purchase the stuff the customers request.

I got another one on Monday morning. The company sites far from the train station and had to take the bus (it was same as the Sunday one). And the company's working place was also in the warehouse without air condition, which must be hard especially in summer season.

This morning the third company called me up and we decided to make an interview tomorrow morning. This company seems working indoor so if they agree I can join it.

I am impressed that so many companies rush to make an interview to me. When I started to work as a part timer, two years ago, almost every companies declined my offer after documents screening. Only one company picked me up to the interview and I could get the new occupation.

I think because of 7 years not-working-period feared the companies to employ. After two years I was working on two companies which approved I could work continuously. So now I can get such a lot of offers, maybe. It is afraid to stop working in certain period. Anyway 7 years were too long. May tomorrow interview succeed.

week end joyride at a yakitori boozer

With two old friends, I will do it at this week end.

The shop I went once a few weeks ago with the other friend and it was a good place, especially cheap price turned me on. So I asked this event and they agreed.

This kind of cheap yakitori boozer the "Tori-Kizoku" is the most famous. The last time my friend's friend, who I do not know insisted him to try the Tori-Kizoku than the one we visited. Because the Tori-Kizoku serves something different than the others. He asked the friend if he tried the others. He denied it. Without trying he still urged how the Tori-Kizoku served the delicious yakitori. So he asked one famous place the Tori-Miki at Kamoi, which the friend knew. He said it was not fair to compare such a high stage place and the Tori-Kizoku, the cheap price one. They do not share the same stage, he rebutted.

I think it is almost the religion and the friend must be the evangelist.

So we visited the Tori-Kizoku before going the one we planed to. But just after opening there was already a queue to get the empty seats. We just turned to the planned place, where we could easily get the seat.

Various baked chicken skewered, pig-out cabbage, many kind of dishes and booze with reasonable price. We enjoyed enough and left there after two hours.

I look forward Saturday evening from now.

Happy New Year ... too late

The weather forecast says it will snow tomorrow. While the time I will be at the part timer working in the warehouse. I wonder if it is possible to get back home after the work.

My colleague says the bus is ok. But the train is weaker to the snow and easy to stop. As the alternative it is possible to move by the subway. But some places they appear to the open place from the tunnel where is dangerous.

I might report what happen after. IDK.

paid server & free server

As I mentioned I declined a paid server recently, which continued since 1999.

Considering the advantage and disadvantage of the paid server and free server, paid server is more comfortable to use, no advertisements, maybe faster etc. On the other hand the data is not eternal. When I pass and stop to pay they will erase the data.

Free server will keep it until they stop the service, which will be longer, while I do not know how long. Who knows? But as far as the data lives some people will come to the page and read my messages left when I was arrive.

So I selected this server and I hope to visit the pages as many people as possible in the future, after I pass.

decline of a server

Today I declined one server opened in 1999. Once it records more than 2,000 pv per week but nowadays only 3 to 5 pv per week. Because I do not maintain the page very much. No time to mange it, and I got tired to do it for long time ago. Paying some money every year and kept it but I decided to do a few weeks ago.

It is waste of time and money now and I have this page. I can update it when feeling inclined which is much more taking easy than to update regularly per week. Today I do not have any plan in the afternoon so I write this to jerk around.

So it comes the end of the year soon. At this moment, I deeply appreciate those who visit this page and read the non-sense sentences from time to time, because I do not know if I update it within this year again or not.

event today - Tokyo COMITIA 122

I joined it with some 70 circles to visit.

One customer claimed one circle's items are sold out very quickly but he wanted them. ok,

I went to the event site @ 9:00, three hours before opening. There already made a queue of some 200 or 300 people in the rain.

The event stuff said we can leave some marks (pet bottle, anything) and can come back by 10:00 am, while the time we can stay under the roof. But unfortunately I did not have any kind of such thing, so I was standing in the rain, reading a book for three hours.

When I finish the book it was 10:00 am, after that I was looking at the catalogue, considering the moving lines and circle cuts and found some old names.

From 10:30 they move the queue from the waiting place to the event hall gate. It took some 10 to 20 minutes and some time after they opened the event. I could enter the hall in a few minutes. After me more and more people making queue rushing (of course walking, no running).

At first, of course I visited to the circle the customer asked and could get all the items. Then started to round all the other requested circles.

At first at the most of all circles I could get the titles requested, then, after the time passing the sold out items appearing, and at last when I visited the last circle, the weight of the books was 20 Kg (I weighed after coming back home). It is almost the limit to carry by the A3 size toto bag.

I planned to visit some other circles after I finish the round but the books were too heavy so I gave up and decided to come back home. It was 13:00 so I spent two hours at the event.

The weather was fine at the moment. In fact when they opened the event the rain was almost stopping and we did not have to open umbrella.

On the way back home, at the first train and after changing the one, I was sleeping in there, sitting at the seat. I could get up just when I arrived the station I got off both time. The last line I was waking up because it was only 10 minutes ride. Then the bus comes in a minute when I got to the stop, which was quite lucky. I could sit the seat in the bus too. And again I slept a little and woke up just one stop before I got off, maybe 5 minutes or 10.

I slept enough last night, I think. I slept 7 hours and a half which seemed enough. Maybe the bag was too heavy which caused me consumed.

Anyway I have to sort the items one by one but I can not manage the time until Saturday. I reported the customers from the visiting list result, not matching it with the real titles. I-call it as the "flash report".

This time, fortunately I could get at least one title for every customers. It happens from time to time that I can not achieve anything to the requests. In the case I feel very unhappy and bottle out to report the zero result.

Tomorrow I will visit the doctor in the morning and making a part timer works in the afternoon. Everything starts in the following.

It is not the end at all.

Damned Windows Update

This time they made something unnecessary to the EPSON's dot impact printer driver which make them unable to print.

I checked the status of the print queue. The print file appears in a second at the print monitor window and disappears. Nothing happen after and it seems gone somewhere.

EPSON already reported the phenomena and featured the announcement at the top page of their site "The important Report : After the window update on Nov. 16 in 2017 the phenomenon unable to print dot impact printers". When we follow the link they introduce to the FAQ page where we can see which update module to unload to retrieve the troubles.

They indicates some five modules and I found my environment only one. After unloading it and reboot the system I could print through the dot impact printer.

Maybe it is not a very good idea to update automatic but wait for a few days and confirmed no problem to do it. But I am not a man kind of shirt-sleeve so I will leave the current condition about the Windows update as it is, automatic update. Sigh.

coffee time

This is a tearoom so it is not unusual to treat about coffee.

There are various method of making coffee, drip, siphon, percolator, etc. I used to see the siphons at the old coffee shop in my young age.

Recently the machine-made coffee is very popular. Many chain shops, Dotor, Talley's, Star Backs, Veloce and others supply coffee very cheap price. I use Veloce with my friend from time to time, because it locates at the way between the Big Sight and the station, and the other shop at the front of the station where my friend lives. It is just a coincidence and no reason to select it.

I prefer to drip it by myself at home. When I was young and lived with my parents I used to use the percolator. Because it was the easiest way to make, just put the powder and water into it and boil. But I did not brush up it after and my mother battled to remove the coffee oil from the pot. At last she gave up and disposed the pot, which was my shame.

So now I use the paper drip. I feel happy and patience while doing. After that I taste it and feel happy again, however I am not a very good maker and powder is very cheap. Still it is a kind of works which I make and I am satisfied it very much.

And now I write this report with drinking the one I made a few minutes (or half an hour) ago.

a small party on last Saturday

With two friends, I got a small party at Japanese fish dishes and beer. I asked one of them to purchase some titles when I had to join the other event. So in requital of his works I invited him. The other friend always attend the party and owe some amount.

It was the first time to go to the place, the top floor of an building, where every floor featured the different restaurants and/or bars.

We ordered a jug of beer, sashimi, yakitori, boiled clam, green soybeans in the pod, fried potato, fried chicken, roast Atka mackerel and ordinary mackerel. They passed the self-made tofu at first, which was quite delicious. All other dishes were really flavorous and we were satisfied completely.

Only two hours passed like an allow. We promised to have the other party next month and went back home.

I really loved the place. Maybe I will join there at least once a year.

events on Sunday

I joined two events on Sunday. The location were different and took about 30 min. to move.

Firstly I moved to PIO where "super heroine time 2017 autumn". I had to visit only four circles there.

Fortunately, while I went there a little late, they made a random sequence enter system. They made four queue and we could join any queue. Then the top member of the four queue make "janken" and the winner queue will enter the hall at first. Further the top queue's top member and last member make "janken" again and the winner will be the top.

My queue became the first one. I was very lucky. So I could get the hall only a few minutes after they opened and went to the booths. I could get two titles, one free paper and the last one did not join.

I left the hall only in 10 minutes and moved to the Big Sight around 11:45. I had to visit nine circles there. After finished I could get all the titles requested. It is something.

In fact the number of circles are small and the genre is a little passe so no queued circles and not so crowded as the other genres but I did not expect to get all the titles.

I returned to PIO again to confirm the last circle did not come. So it was late in the afternoon when I came back home.

Still it was very satisfied Sunday.

interviews

Approaching to several offices, currently three offers getting. It is amazing because last year I tried about 40 offices and got a few. It was not an office but a factory.

It will take place from next Tuesday morning, just after it and the last one on Wednesday afternoon. The last one they interview all applicants. I hope the first one or the second one gives a affirmative reply.

But it took so long time. Both offices I sent the document on Sep. 1st. And they approached from 14th and 19th(?) via the telephone.

I can not foresee what will happen but try the best, that is all.

about the proper work

Sometime I have to treat it, hahaha.

Of course I continue it as I mentioned about the programming a few uploads ago, which were concerned to the workings.

Now the main action is to join the events and get items.

So I had an idea to attach a message when replying the customers, the only event which the customer was interested in schedule coming soon. I have the sales database which contains the customer code and event code. Event master features the genre code which indicates the genre name of the genre master. It is possible to skim the genre who joined the only event in the past. Then to look for the event schedule calendar the genre code I got I can show them the only events which they are interested in coming soon if any.

I expand the idea to put the genre code to all the items I placed order for the customers. So maybe after half a year it is also possible to skim the genre code from not only the only event records but also the all trades.

I sent some customers this message. One was interested in and replied she would check it. The other replied no need to do for she can get the enough information from the twitter asking my question if it worked. Now it is a little awkward problem whether I will do it or not.

translation

Concurrently programming, I am trying the translation program.

I joined Ameria and taking the trials. When I send the result (Mainly English to Japanese) they evaluate it and rate with a comment, which takes three months. It is not free, of course, and I now feel very uneasy and tired, just as when I re-started the programming two weeks ago. So I hope if I continue the action day by day, I can be used to it and make the better composition easier and faster, I hope.

programming

Recently, making programs for the training of the new occupation to be if it is related section. Now my skill is quite poor because I do not make programs for a long time. Most of the command format information out of memory and I have to check it at the web and/or books.

Further because of dull motivation, I can not concentrate and build the completely new idea but only modify the current modules. Adding command buttons, describe a short programs to improve the form function. That is all what I can do now. Hmm ... it would not be a good idea to get back to the old office.

Now I offer six companies and declined by two. It is a long run.

Planning to join a new event

Now the summer event has gone and autumn is coming day by day. And every week end we can join the events bumper-to-bumper, however most of the time I move by train.

This autumn one event has been cancelled. Because the schedule matched with the one in Osaka. They tried to move the calendar and look for the suitable hall but at last they gave up and cancelled the one. The next event will come on January.

Now the maniac fans attend to the Osaka one. In fact I joined it last two years. One customer was a sponsor and the first time the customer was one. The last year maybe 4 or 5 customers, still the first customer owed most of the expense and others shared the rest.

This year the customers are now nine. I sent a spread mail to join the Osaka event and this year you share the full amount of expense. I am waiting for the reply. Three affirmative and one negative. Others ignore it. This time the plan might be failed. But still the first customer says me to join it, even if the customer is only himself.

What a hot flame of doujinshi. I am really impressed it.

toracon

Recently when purchasing stuffs at the Toranoana they combine one page advertisement paper:
toracon.jpgAt first I could not understand very much. But at last it was the SNS where women and men meet to marriage. I do not know if your country features such system but in Japan this business is very popular. You may hear the word "konkatsu", i.e.marriage action.

Conventionally their target was ordinary people. Now they widen it to those who called "otaku" people. I think now "Comicekkon" (marriage both are the stakeholders of the comic market) is more popular.

I know one miserable story about the marriage of a girl with an ordinary man. She tried to continue the manga drawing but the husband did not want it. Her works were the kind of boys' love so he hated it. She lived with his parents and they forbade to draw manga anymore. She played as accepting it and in fact waking up in the midnight to continue the work. I do not know the result of her but it must be some fatal story.

To avoid it husband and wife share the same taste, or at least one accept the other's action. This SNS gathers the otaku people and try to match with the far larger 58,000 ordinary people circle, to make a marriage.

I remember when I was young. Now I am living in a new age. So it goes.

event - join as a circle or general

Yesterday I joined an event as a buyer. It was not a very large event but not so small. I planned to visit two circles only. Both announced at the pixiv their information. I checked them and decided to visit the one which featured the copy style doujinshi at first and move to the other which issued the ordinary printed one.

Because the copy style one usually the number of copies are limited and sold out soon.

I went to the booth and got the copy sucucessfully. Then moved to the next one, where the seller left the seat and the card said "wait a bit while shopping". No plan to visit the other circles, so I waited there, about half an hour or more.

At last the booth owner came back with a toto-bag full of the doujinshi she bought. Then I purchased one copy.

Just after they opened the event she left the booth and shopped from one circle to the other. While the time the customer like me have to wait for her coming back.

From my side, if she wants to buy the doujinshi so much she must join it as a buyer, not as the circle. In the case she joins the event as a circle just to get the doujinshi faster than the general coming into the hall.

On the other hand she got her book too. She wants to sell it. If so, she must join the event with the selling stuff, or she does not have any frineds who can deal with one day.

It happens frequently that the booth owner is alone and leaves the seat. But if the onwer wants to purchase the other circles' stuff, (s)he must do it at least 30 minutes or 1 hour after opening, I think.

rainy season

The weather forecast says our kanto area got the rainy season yesterday. We will have rain more frequently than the other season, which usually ends around the third week on july. While the time the rice fields keep a lot of water and will gain a bumper crop in the autumn.

This season the rice fields are like a green carpet, which may similar to the cornfield. In the autumn it changes the color to the yellow and/or light brown. When driving along the fields it is very beautiful to see (of course we have to take care the driving primary). The almost square fields are set off by the narrow bank which weight is around 50 cm made by loam soil. The glean terms are not equal but some fields feature the early-ripening and they harvest the rice, where remains the stump of them and sometimes they dry the grain with the straw there, making a drying frames.Now it is an old style and most of them they dry by machine and we can only see the stump.

So we have to take umbrella anytime when we go out for a few weeks, even if we can see the sun. The weather changes to quickly especially these days. I have a feeling that the pattern of the change is more drastic than before, the heavy rain in the short time and the sun comes after, like that. It seems our country is now in the tropical area than warm latitude in the past.
