In the last installment of the Desk Diary series, I mentioned that we moved out of the office that we had been using since 2008 - we actually just moved up to the 2nd floor ^^;
I used to call the first floor office "The Dungeon" as it was so dark down there - even during the daytime, the lights would have to be on as hardly any light gets in down there. There was always a mysterious breeze of cold air down there too. The Dungeon is also too small to hold the extra staff that are going to join this year.
When I started my company, the office was on the 3rd floor which looked like this - now that we've used all 3 floors for office space, the next move will either be relocating the office elsewhere or making this house the company building as my wife and I move out.
The TV is going to go here until we get a new one to mount on the wall. Was thinking of getting a Freestyle Aquos - the selling point of that TV is that the tuner is a separate unit but then I found out that you cant attach HDMI (or any other appliances) to it wirelessly. What TV do you have and what size is it?
Been using the current iMac since last Autumn-ish. Would like to be able to pull the screen closer to me at an angle and heard that the 2012 iMacs may have such a feature which means I would probably switch to that ^^;
However I do tend to use a machine until it starts to become too slow for my needs - applications tend to want more resources from the machine as they get versioned up. How often do you change your main computer and what are the reasons?
Need to throw out some old office chairs and to do that in Japan you need to pay for them to be picked up for recycle. Go to your nearest convenience store to pick up some of these stickers for Sodai Gomi Shori ] - they cost 200 yen each.
Once you got your stickers, stick them on the items that you want to dispose and then call the local ward office. They will arrange for a time to come and pick them up. The stickers are an indication that you have already paid the recycle fee.
What happens when you want to dispose of large stuff in your neck of the woods? Do you just throw it out with the rest of the rubbish?
