A little bit off topic, but can you recommend any reasonably priced IP's 
around/near Tsukuba?  You won't believe how long it takes from here (Tokodai) 
just to access your web page.  Apparently, ALL of our internet connections from 
the office go straight across the WAN to the US office and emerge there, and end
up fending for themselves back across the Pacific.  Not the ideal setup for 
accessing "local" sites.

(On the topic of "fending across the pacific", I'm STILL waiting for my 
computers I sent sea mail to arrive.  I'm starting to convince myself that 
they've been pirated the old fashioned way...)  When they do come, I'm sure I'll
have some of my pending Linux/JE setup problems to add to your fun... 

Thanks (and hajimemashite),
