Kyoto trip

Until today, I was in the wonderful city of Kyoto, Japan. As I traveled via Shinkansen (Bullet train) for a little more than 2hours, I arrived in Kyoto.

People of Kyoto speak with a slight accent which is difficult to describe in English. Maybe the sort of difference of New England English vs. the San Francisco English. Well, you will have to actually go there to grasp the difference of Japanese accents.

I traveled first to the train museum which I thoroughly enjoyed and even bought a TOMIX freight car N gauge train model as an omiyage.

The next day, I went around the city although it was raining.

The third day, which is today, I bought a book about intellectual living in Kyoto Station’s bookstore and completed reading it on the Shinkansen ride back. I will upload photos I took later. See you!

Minato Mirai


Just as we run through perils and winding roads, we see a light. A Light that shines in my soul. Yes, it is that Light that makes me happy.

Just some things

I just noticed the other day that Kaggle joined Google.

Well, that’s that I guess, I hope they don’t shut it down sometime later… 😦

At the moment, I am installing Visual Studio 2015 for installing Arrayfire (for God knows how many times now!) I hope I can learn to program it well this time. I keep saying I have to make a search engine ranker with CUDA acceleration…

Inventories stocked for eBay &

So, I stocked some things like tapes and digital cameras recently.

One digital camera is a very old one, called FUJIFILM 4900Z which has about 2Megapixel HoneyComb CCD. Another is quite recent one made in 2012 called IXY 3. It has an amazing 12X optical zoom!

Here’s my eBay store if you want to buy tapes, PDAs, laptops, WonderSwan Crystal and more.

Here’s my listing. (for those who live in Japan)

Working with servers.

So, I’ve been renting SSD nodes server for my project for 2 months now. I must say their service is very good.

I like working with servers via ssh, and  I am recently thinking of building a Raspberry Pi Zero cluster / Raspberry Pi 3 cluster or a Parallella cluster.

It all depends on how much budget I can have.

Raspberry Pi Zero will be interesting to experiment with since it has such a small footprint. It also consumes the least amount of current of the three SBC. What I’m going to be using the cluster is probably for information retrieval and AI research…

I’m also building another  website (you’ll have to look for it, it’s quite obscure).

Softbank’s stock price is going up, maybe I’ll invest in them soon….
