2020-07-02 "A photo of a human subject that appears to be a minor" [長年日記]

Colleague: "Is the person married?"

may ask me sometimes.

Ebata: "I don't know. I've never heard of it and I'm not interested."

has answered.

This is not pretending, and I'm really not interested in other people, and moreover, I'm not interested in that person's "marriage" at all.

It seems that I have left that kind of sensibility somewhere.

When it comes to the human "family," I really don't care.

There were many foreigners showing me photos of children and grandchildren on the plane.

At times like this, I feel like "I'm sorry I didn't get the reaction you were expecting".

"A photo of a human subject that appears to be a minor"

I have no other impressions.

-----

Lately, I've been seeing a lot of ads for "marriage activity sites" in my web browser.

Well, these days most of the ads are targeted, so if I look at a certain ad, a similar ad will appear easily.

For example, if I often see ads for erotic sites, it's evidence that I am watching ads for erotic sites.

-----

This means that I often look at ads on "marriage hunting sites", well, maybe you are.

Marriage is, a as desktop/numerical simulation, very interesting field

2020-07-01 "Two people zero sum limited to determine the complete information game" [長年日記]

I can't say that I know Shogi rules completely.

NHK's Shogi games on the weekend change channels in 3 seconds.

No matter what Shogi title whoever gets, I'm not interested at all.

-----

However, mysteriously, I really like Shogi comics and anime.

"Shogi Meshi", "Reborn Shougi Player", "March Lion", "Ryuou's Work", etc.

I'm not sure for the reason.

"Two people zero sum limited to determine the complete information game"

I sometimes think that the reasons are natures of the game, however, I also think "Go", "chess", and "Othello" are also acceptable.

Also, Shougi also has exceptions, like a rules of "Sennichite".

-----

I think that for for cowards like me, who cannot bet my life for a game, I have a longing for a person to bet on their life in a "zero-sum game (a game in which winning and losing are definitely decided)"


2020-06-30 I was frustrated, so I went to a supermarket on the way and bought some mackerel fillets and natto (fermented soybeans) that I didn't need. And then we went home. [長年日記]

Last Sunday, I went with my wife and senior daughter to a city facility to vote before the deadline.

We decided to walk 30 minutes each way to get some exercise.

The location and time were correct, but the date was wrong.

Voting day was July 5, and pre-voting began on June 30.

I was wrong to decide "from 10 days ago" unilaterally, however, was it such a short time?

I feel uncomfortable with this time period because I have pre-voted every time.

-----

I searched a little.

There is a replacement of Article 39 in Article 48-2, Paragraph 6, Item 6 of the Public Offices Election Law, anyway,

Only the city hall must start from the day after the announcement, however, regarding other polling stations, it seems that it is up to municipal election committee that means, "the period decided by the municipal election committee".

I wondered if they shortened the period due to the corona disaster. As a result of further investigation, it seems that the administrative districts have different responses.

For example, Adachi Ward has decided to open all ten locations for the full period of time this time, whereas the previous time, only one location accepted applications for the full period of time (in order to reduce the risk of transmission of corona virus).

-----

Well, this event was for my family to walk for less than an hour.

I was frustrated, so I went to a supermarket on the way and bought some mackerel fillets and natto (fermented soybeans) that I didn't need. And then we went home.


2020-06-29 I will not be able to even cry with the administration's poor disclosure literacy by a lack of information, disaster, death, etc. [長年日記]

At the weekend, I went to the public swimming pool with my wife after checking the website for opening times and hours.

However, I was told at the facility's office that they are closed on weekends.

Knowing it was useless, I complained, "we came to check the website" and then we were forced to go home.

In fact, I had already sent an email to City Hall protesting the change in the pool's hours of operation, as it hadn't been updated previously.

I was "dumb" for believing that "City Hall has already handled it.

-----

The city hall must be busy with measures to deal with the corona epidemic, and I can understand the difficult situation that they have not been able to update their website.

However, I think there is a problem with not taking advantage of the occasional "citizen's notice".

But I know the reason for this.

It would take me 3 minutes to update the home page (or one line of link that takes people to the anti-corona page).

As a matter of fact, City Hall employees have to go through a professional contractor to update their website.

To be exact,

(1) The staff does not have the authority to create the website due to a request for approval (or contractual issues).

(2) Staff do not have the skills to create a website.

Either or both.

-----

I'm terribly worried about it.

From now on, if a typhoon, flood, or earthquake occurs, disaster and evacuation information on the city hall's website will be the last line of defense for the citizens.

The latest information on the website needs to be updated on a minute-by-minute basis, by the field personnel at their discretion.

But will City Hall be able to respond properly to real-time website updates?

-----

Honestly, I wish the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) would include "creating html files (or text files)" and "uploading to the server" in the educational guidelines rather than "programming education".

I don't expect City Hall employees to improve their web site development skills in any way.

At the very least, I hope that they should be able to send out text-based information.

This is not the time to be cool.

I will not be able to even cry with the administration's poor disclosure literacy by a lack of information, disaster, death, etc.

-----

Well, I, I emailed the above complaint to city hall today and added, "please email me when you're done responding".

Now, how many days does it take to respond to this response? Or will they ignore me?

The results will be announced soon.


2020-06-27 I couldn't have noticed that both the desire of baseball fans to "deliver a one-sided cheer song", and the thought of the team receiving it with gratitude. [長年日記]

I talked about the "realistic sensations presence system" before -- but it was already in the works ("#Loud Cheer")

by not a professional engineer but an amateur.

However, this system is not a "realistic sensations presence system" in the proper sense of the word.

The system is not bidirectional or real time, but simply synchronizes and composes the cheering video.

Still, the cheering video will be displayed on an electronic billboard at the baseball stadium, which will be held in an unattended audience.

-----

The impact this system has had on me has been tremendous.

What shocked me was not the "technology" but the "inspiration".

I could only think of a two-way, real time, neatly closed system, and I could not come up with the idea of "delivering a one-way cheer" at all.

Of course, I could have created the same level of systems and content, but that's not a big deal.

I couldn't have noticed that both the desire of baseball fans to "deliver a one-sided cheer song", and the thought of the team receiving it with gratitude.

This is a fatal flaw for researchers who have to think about social systems.

-----

I don't think the company would have been able to develop this system on a business basis (because it wouldn't pay).

I also don't think I would have been an development contributor in weekend engineer mode (Because I'm not interested in professional baseball).

But for this case, I am completely defeated because I couldn't have the idea of a "gratuitous act".


2020-06-26 I'm a pretty "lousy person", whenever I'm criticized I feel uncomfortable and immediately go into combat mode even if the criticism is right. [長年日記]

(Continuation from yesterday)

My basic stance is "If you get hit, hit back", "I will take on the enemies of Edo, not only in Nagasaki, but anywhere in the world", and "I will shoot him in the back after he shoots me in the back".

This lousy policy may seem to only lead to an "endless chain of retaliation," but it's actually quite a bit of "restraint on myself" as well.

(1) There must be more than a few people who think like me.

(2) If I criticize people in a way that causes resentment, I don't know where I am going to get retribution.

(3) Therefore, I should explore the circumstances and social conventions of the time and the mental picture of the other person, as much as I can. criticize people with the utmost care, logically and with evidence (numbers, etc.).

In other words, I can create motivation to be a good (and cunning) critic by using the "demon" in you well.

-----

I'm a pretty "lousy person", whenever I'm criticized I feel uncomfortable and immediately go into combat mode even if the criticism is right.

However, there is something to be gained by getting to the bottom of that "minimum".

I'm not going to force myself to be a good person -- To begin with, I can't make the effort like that.

I will continue to be a clever, logical, cool "lousy person" and continue to "shoot the guy in the back who shot me in the back some".


2020-06-25 "Shooting someone who has fought back from a safe distance, after everything is done" [長年日記]

Recently, there have been a number of articles and comments criticizing those who have advocated and implemented a specific response to the new virus.

In response to these articles and comments,

A person who ran away from a burning house, says "difficulty with firefighting procedures" during a subsequent site inspection. I feel that it's tremendously vulgar.

"Shooting someone who has fought back from a safe distance, after everything is done"

This is exactly it.

-----

Well, in my experiments, I was once forced out in front of a burning house. And I've had the same experience of "I've managed to put out the fire, and after that I've had a difficult time with it".

I am determined to never forgive these "shoot me in the back" people for the rest of my life.

Of course, I'm a working man (and I was a theatergoer in my youth),so in daily life, "Fair face, foul heart" is a thoroughgoing practice.

-----

However, it's also true that even if these are "shots in the back" acts, you can't make things better if you stop all the criticism.

According to my columns, I think criticism of others makes up half of the content.

In other words, it is me who "shoots people in the back who have been fighting".

But I don't believe at all that "those who are criticizing others (me) must indulge in criticism from others".

(To be continued)


2020-06-24 Well, still, it's never out of the range of retort curry -- it's pretty good. [長年日記]

I continue to work at home and cook my own lunch at home.

These days the whole family is home more and more often, and we have much more opportunities to eat dinner together.

However, as for lunch, each of us cook and eat what we want at our own time.

It's inevitably going to be a simple noodle dish, and I get bored indeed.

-----

In the Ebata's house, my wife put the stocked emergency foods, which are past their expiration date into baskets and place them in the kitchen.

My family takes what they want out of it and eats it. Due to the nature of preserved foods, they are retort foods.

Speaking of retorts, curry and rice would be the best.

When I make a curry from a curry roux, it's a very hot curry that no other family member can eat except me.

However, for me, the retort curry is not "spicy" at all.

-----

And, well, I have my own take on retort curry.

In a frying pan, lightly fry the chilies and chopped garlic, then add about 100g of Cut the chicken and eggplant into bite-sized pieces and throw them in.

After the chicken is cooked, pour the retort curry on it and mix it with the ingredients, cut the spinach into strips by hand and fry it until it becomes soft, and finally, throw in the Bavarone sauce.

Well, still, it's never out of the range of retort curry -- it's pretty good.

If you work at home and are in a lunch rut, give it a try.


2020-06-23 I'm wondering if I could set up a "quantum computer" in the children's room if I busted out the wall. [長年日記]

Today, new my column is released, so I take a day off.

Dancing Buzzword-Behind the Buzzword (3) Quantum Computer (3)

Initializing the Quantum Bit - Now let's move the 0cat and 1cat!

-----

The time is coming when our daughters will leave our home -- whether it's for a job, marriage, or some other reason. I don't know.

The children must leap in the opposite direction of the parent, abandoning the parent as a stepping stone.

Parents finish their charge by being used up as energy for their children to fly.

Just as I have used my parents as a stepping stone in the same way.

Aside from that.

-----

After my senior and junior daughter are gone, our house will have quite a bit of space.

I'm wondering if I could set up a "quantum computer" in the children's room if I busted out the wall.

For now, as for space.


2020-06-22 Installing COCOA is a personal choice, but I would recommend that you install it. [長年日記]

(Continuation from yesterday)

If I am worried about COCOA's security and the release of your personal information, I came up with the idea that I might as well go to Contributor.

Well, even if I can't do source code development, it might be useful, at least for testers.

However, it's already released, and unless it's an upgrade in the future, there may not be a situation where I'm going to be stuck with it.

I haven't read the source code properly yet, but I am tired of checking for "personal information being pulled out" or "government surveillance" just because it's published as open source.

This is similar to a peace of mind of "just getting a copy of someone's notes before a test".

To begin with, I can believe (not in theory) that open source developers are believable.

And, as far as the heads of government are concerned, that hopeless IT literacy, I have a tremendous amount of trust in the government that

"The current government lacks the intelligence and nerve to pull off an IT conspiracy"

According to the election fraud case of a former minister, their handling of IT information (destruction of evidence) is terrible.

"The district attorney's office can have evidence recovered from your computer"、If I were him, I would be so embarrassed with crying.

-----

Installing COCOA is a personal choice, but I would recommend that you install it.

Particularly for those in the hospitality industry, I believe that the ability to visualize the risk of infection will increase motivation to devise new ways of working.

Also, people who use trains and buses to commute to work or school can be afraid of riding at rush hour. This may lead you to consider staggered work, telecommuting, or even biking or biking to work.

In addition, the use of many people over a long period of time may make it clear that "this is bad" or "this is not bad".

The best part is that it's not as cumbersome as PCR or antibody testing (just install it).

-----

If I get a positive reaction from me, I will register it immediately.

Of course, there is also the perspective of "civic duty and contribution".

In addition, there is a feeling of "duty and interest as an engineer".

During the two weeks I'm locked in my room, I will continue to hack the communication messages coming out of my phone.
