  1. Someone else in Toyama! Greetings! Where abouts Mr?
  2. Fatties not getting jobs, thought this was interesting: http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-1200221,00.html "Employers are shunning fat workers because they think obesity affects productivity and indicates a lack of self discipline, a report suggests.

  3. I bought a "cheap" (at that time) computer 3 years ago and apart from being very slow now (even an expensive one from back then is slow now), it works just fine.
  4. Same here I gave a lot to Niigata, trying to stay afloat myself now.
  5. Good news - I've been given some gear!! I'll be taking the friend out for a meal and beer up sometime soon, but got my gear without shelling out. That'll be good to start off with......

  13. Walk sure would be nice. I'm not too far away, I don't think, but it will surely be train and car. Must find friends with car.
  14. Hi, new here, fairly new to Japan. Looking forward to the winter, not too keen on the summer that's just gone. Just wondering if I can pick some brains.
