[EAYP2008]Extreme Ad hoc Year-end Party 2008

We welcome the New Year while writing the code in a separate place.
so we don't need to get together when we hold a party.
We can take communication with skype, share the code with github.

We are calling this the Extreme Ad hoc Year-end Party 2008 [EAYP2008].

Of course, we also developped the official site which can check the situation of a party on real time.



We wrote the code while drinking sake after the comic market.

Comiket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Comiket (コミケット, Komiketto?), otherwise known as the Comic Market (コミックマーケット, Komikku Māketto?) or CM, is the world's largest comic convention, held twice a year in Tokyo, Japan.[1] The first CM was held in December 1975, with only about 32 participating circles and an estimated 600 attendees.[2] Attendance has since swelled to nearly a half million people.[1] It is a grassroots, DIY effort for selling dōjinshi, self-published Japanese works. As items sold in CM are considered very rare (because dōjinshi are seldom reprinted), some items sold at CM can be found in shops or on the Internet at prices up to 10 times the item's original price.

The continuing operation of CM is the responsibility of the Comic Market Preparatory Committee (CMPC).

Hi, this is takano32.
75th Comic Market, held in Japan(Ariake, Big Sight) from 12/28 to 12/30.This is the most famous comic flea market, so the scale of market is no longer flea.

See! People look like grit and dust!!

Some of them may really dust...

These years, the market is larger and larger, their manner is distinctly worse.

By the way, Comic Market is also good taste for hackers.

Some of circles, the teams for Comic Market, are selling books for hack, displaying out-of-the-way computer and so on.

Comic Market must be very exciting event for all over the hackers in the World and the Internet!

We always kick around with tap to fork outlet.

At the party after Firefox Developers Conference 2008

At the party after Firefox Developers Conference 2008, we wrote the code while drinking sake(JAPANESE alcoholic drink).

In the Japanese McDonald, a power supply is free to use.

This label says "It is an outlet for laptops. Feel free to use."

We are HAI-JIN

HAI-JIN(廃人) is a Japanese word, pronounce like 'high gene'. However its meaning is similar to 'geek' or 'nerd'. HAI-KI-BUTSU(廃棄物) means 'waste', HAI-SHI(廃止) means 'obsolete' and HAI-JIN means 'a person in bad state' for example drug-addiction. You know, we are all web-addicted and PC-addicted. Some of us is also game-addicted. Happy HAI-JIN life!!

We look back at the year, often carrying in and coding a notebook PC to Bar.

New editor: NISHIO Hirokazu

Hi, I'm NISHIO Hirokazu, a Jython book author, now joined to this blog! I'm now interested in CUDA and OpenCV.

I have also been interested in origin of words. For example, my family name "NISHIO" is made of two characters "NISHI"(west) and "O"(tail). "O" has same origin with "WO"(fish) so my ancestor might be a fisher. "NISHIO" is pronounces like "knee see awe" but shorter. My given name "Hirokazu" is made of two characters "HIRO" and "KAZU". "HIRO" is pronounced like a hero. It means "big" and "calmful". (Wiktionary). "KAZU" is pronounced like a cousin without "n". It means "peace" and "harmony". (Wiktionary).

Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about Japanese words!
