11.10 and the kmail debacle drove me off KDE and Kubuntu. Kmail2 was broken across several distros, so I don't blame Canonical for that, but they sure as hell didn't have anyone testing the kmail migration with any amount of mail. I moved to Lubuntu w/ Thunderbird (there's a python script floating around that converts kmail maildir to Thunderbird mbox) and Chrome and haven't looked back. Was able to move all but the last couple of months of kmail messages into Thunderbird. It's nice to have my computer back, not 99% consumed w/ running mysqld and nepomuk/virtuoso.

Living In Tokyo's Capsule Hotels 269

afabbro writes "Capsule Hotel Shinjuku 510 once offered a night’s refuge to salarymen who had missed the last train home. Now with Japan enduring its worst recession since World War II, it is becoming an affordable option for people with nowhere else to go. The Hotel 510’s capsules are only 6 1/2 feet long by 5 feet wide. Guests must keep possessions, like shirts and shaving cream, in lockers outside of the capsules. Atsushi Nakanishi, jobless since Christmas says, 'It’s just a place to crawl into and sleep. You get used to it.'”
