Well, I have been a bit quiet in the postings this week as I have been in Tokyo! Weather has been terrible - heavy rain but still lots to do.
Akihabara & Harajuku are always fun!
I'll post a few photos when I get back..

If you lived in the states I would have you pick up a happy hacking keyboard for me. Have fun while you're over there.

Hopefully it clears up for you - seems like you've had a run of bad luck concerning weather recently :)

Out of curiosity, did you notice any used electronics shops in your excursions? I seem to remember Japan passed a weird law recently regarding reselling old gear - curious as to what came out of that.

In Akihabara I did see some shops in side streets selling 2nd hand PCs and pulls like graphic cards, fans, RAM etc. I didn't take much notice as it wasn't SGI...

While you're in the immediate vicinity of the 山の手, could you please do me a favor and confirm which of these tunes you hear while on that line?

My wife and I can't really recall the details at this point...

Thanks!

All the 6 tunes are used on the Yamanote Line.

JR_05 is used at Yurakucho station.

I need to check my CD for others...

I did hear some strange noise this morning but at 7:45 the Yamanote line was incredibly packed!!!
My Japanese colleague tells me that each station has a special tune....they all sound like a weird aracde game to me!!

ps. who has played Pachingo? They just love those silver balls!!!

Shyouko, thanks for the confirmation. I'd greatly appreciate it if you could figure out which of those tunes is what station. The stations on the yamanote that have meaning for my wife and I are ueno, shinagawa, meguro, shibuya, harajuku, and ikebukuro... If any of those tunes match up with any of those stations, then that's cool. Right now, JR_02 is my ringtone, and JR_01 is my wife's, because we seem to recall those tunes sounding familiar.

Maxsleg, heh, actually, I have two pachinko balls sitting here on my keyboard. Wow, the noise in those parlors! Even the noise of the one vintage 70's pachinko machine I have at home can be a bit much, let alone over a hundred of them with loud music playing in the background...

Chris
