About 囲碁(Go) 
It's an amazing game. Such simple rules, such complicated gameplay. It's fun, instructive, helps your logic thinking.. Only thing bad in it is it takes one more slice of my precious time. But that doesn't matter, it's such fun and rests my nerves.

I might later be posting some games or positions I've found interesting in games I've seen or played.

We should really have only one character encoding 
Really now, what's the point of having dozens of those encodings. I'm sure UTF-8 lacks somewhere, but I have managed with it so far.

Even this blog had some ISO charset as default for english. It could have been UTF-8 right away. Well, can't complain, since it's open source and I could easily modify it. But the software that are not open source.. They sometimes give me an headache.

So, I recommend everyone to read this: The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Absolutely, Positively Must Know About Unicode and Character Sets (No Excuses!)
I haven't yet read it all, but it makes sense to me so far.

Recently I also worked on an embedded project where I got into some problems with charsets.. Got it compiling nicely in Linux environment though. Sadly it's not working on the hardware yet. Maybe something more on that later.

In the beginning 

I got my server this morning and did everything as practiced, and here I am, writing an blog entry on my own server! Yay.

More to come sometime...
