"All junk mail?" I asked as Tod pulled the papers from our box.

"Uh, no. You got something from the library."

"The library? Huh. Oh wait, it's the National Diet Library...this is Japan's Library of Congress...Oh! It's my ISSN!" I jumped up and down.

A few months ago, I applied to the Japanese registry for an International Standard Serial Number for mediatinker. I didn't hear back from them, so I wrote again a couple weeks back. They'd had a question about my application, which I answered and now I am the proud publisher of an internationally recognised serial.

issn.jpgHere is ISSN 1348-7752 at your service. You can use this number to refer to my weblog or to look it up the the international serial database.

I even have an official EAN-13 barcode for mediatinker (Tod generated it; he loves barcodes). It's not much benefit online, but if you ever wanted to take me to the checkout line with you...

Very nice... congrats!

Any plans to tattoo it on your butt?

Lost in Translation opens here tomorrow. I'm wondering if seeing it will make me feel closer to you or miss you more.

Kristen, the geek in me wants to know more about your Happy Hacking keyboard. What's the secret there?

Ah, the HHKB is a great little keyboard--little being the key point. It's got no arrow keys, no F1-F12 keys (though access to both via the regular keys) no numeric keypad and the control key is in the "right" place. Just using it, I am an ubergeek, ready to tackle PHP and CMS systems with a single keystroke--or a lot of keystrokes.

That's cool! I am filling out my application now.
