I’ve really been enjoying my new phone’s multimedia features, especially the video player. It really is easy to watch Japanese dorama on it. I just need to prepare the episodes using the excellent xvid4psp converter beforehand. That converter has a batch feature which makes converting an entire series a breeze. I have found that the iPhone/iPodTouch preset works well for the G1, and the beautiful screen in the phone makes reading the subtitles super easy.
Right now I am catching up with “Mop Girl”, which isn’t so great after two episodes, but I’ll stick with it for at least a couple more to see if it picks up. At least the main character is a cutie!

I was just playing with Google Maps on my G1, and I asked for directions from my present location (Austin, TX) to my brother’s house in Honolulu. Google Maps came back with a route which has a distance of 5185.1 miles and an estimated drive of 376 hours and 54 minutes. I scrolled through the directions to see how it figured to span the ocean, and it recommends kayaking across the Pacific from Seattle:
- Turn left to stay on NE Northlake Way. 1.0 mi
- Kayak across the Pacific Ocean Entering Hawaii 2765.4 mi
- Slight right at Turtle Bay Hilton .1 mi
I better start now if I want to make it by Xmas!

Jeremy sent me this amazing video of Tokyo by Utusuru, shot using a Canon 5D MkII. Makes me miss Tokyo so much!

This morning while driving Bay to his school, I noticed one of the houses that had a McCain/Palin yard sign had an American flag displayed. Except it was at half-staff. In contrast to this, when I arrived at Bay’s school, a school bus pulled up, and the kids were all chanting “O-Ba-Ma!”. It was really something!
