    @remino Japan doesn’t let citizens retain non-Japanese names? :-/

      @keage 早く涼しいになりました?

        @remino That sucks. Governments should make this kind of shit easy. :(
        cgiffard
          @remino Ah. Do they make you change it everywhere at once? :-/

            @remino You couldn't take your wife's?

              @snrkl Gross. I hate it when companies do that.

                @tomcat If this government doesn't get absolutely toasted in the next election, I'm going to have to do something drastic. Like enter politics myself and take those fuckers down. @33mhz

                  Wonder what has occupied @matigo?
                  cgiffard
                    @keita Yeah, the fact that you had to manually select the kanji representation was the thing that slowed me down most. @adiabatic

                      @tomcat Hitler is actually probably a good comparison — I wouldn't be surprised if he actually didn't care that much about the Jews, but they were simply a way to control the populace.

                        @tomcat It's cynical in the worst way — a painfully obvious blunder designed to appeal to irrelevant racists in a way that demonstrates absolutely no concern for the poor folk trapped in the middle, wastes a huge amount of money, and disrupts the CBD.

                          @tomcat Oh, not saying it's acceptable in any way! Just, that you should know your enemy. It's good to truly understand their motivation.

                            @tomcat Otherwise — why the press conferences, pre-announcement? It's a really terribly planned PR move. Astonishingly Abbott-like in nature. Of course he *says* it wasn't his idea.

                              @tomcat No it's not. That might be the end result, but the intimidation isn't the objective — it's just collateral damage. It's a dog whistle move designed to *look* like the undesirables are being dealt with, to those sad racists from the burbs.

                                @snrkl My question was more — is Dubai your final destination? Or you're going somewhere onward?
                                cgiffard
                                  @keita Oh yeah, I want that. I should upgrade.

                                    @minego Obviously I can't compare it to the steam controller, but it's definitely the best controller currently for sale. @tewha @joeo10

                                      @minego I really liked the dual shock 3, until I used the dual shock 4, which is way more comfortable. I have one for my PC too. @tewha @joeo10
