Itadakimasu (Now, I get your soul)
In Japan, it is common practice for everyone to say "itadakimasu" for each meal. Without saying that, we can't start eating.
The direct translation would be: "Now, I get your soul". It's a very short version of prayer before meals. We recognize "soul" for each food.
I was explained that it's because of Buddhism, but I don't see such a practice in China, Thailand, or India.Show all 5 replies
GreetingsIn Japan, we say good morning, ohayou!, each other in the morning (usually among family, neighbers,and colleagues).
I thought that it is a common practice around the world.
In Chinese language program, I learned that there is no such practice in China.
It reminds me that in Mainland, they called my name "Xin Bu Yu!" (in Chinese), or asked "Have you eaten?". Well, it might be better than mere greeting, since it can express we can recognize each other explicitly, or can get most important information.

GnuPG 2.1.21 released!I did many clean up; where I saw a compiler warning, I reviewed the code around to see a problem. Most warnings were no problem, but I could find and fix a bug or two. :-)

How AI technology scalesPeople talk about "AI". Many professors, researchers don't care about definition or things in detail, it seems.
While someone addresses Free Software (or Open Source, Linux), we have many picky people correcting terms, etc.
Disclosure: I was working at ICOT as an external engineer until it closed.

My thoughts on U2FI was asked about integrating U2F feature into Gnuk.
I decided not to.
My Maildir is now on encrypted partition with "g13"In GnuPG 2.1, we have "g13" tool for encrypted disk.
It is highly experimental, but the author has been using this tool. I should be the second.
So, for my notebook computer, I introduced an encrypted disk partition for Maildir.
While cryptsetup was suffered by systemd integration, g13 works well manually.
Someday, I will try automounting of SD card with g13.
GnuPG 2.1.19 releasedIn this release, we can use multiple tokens simultaneously with internal CCID driver.
gpg --card-status / --card-edit currently only supports a single token, but signing, decryption, and authentication (SSH) work well with multiple tokens.
I Love Free Software Day!This year, I wrote two of GNU Emacs developers to say big "Thank You!".

For some reason, my Pumpa had not worked well and I couldn't post. Now, it seems working again!
Ed25519 key for SSH
I've been using Ed25519 key for SSH. For access to git.gnupg.org and git.gniibe.org, etc.
Today, I tried to upload my Ed25519 key to alioth.debian.org, and I found that it is not yet supported.
It seems that FusionForge 6.0 supports Ed25519 key, though.
