Shift_JIS

Welcome

Since Twitter is no good for anything cohesive, this space will serve as my ranting area.

The name of this site is a reference to the text encoding of the same name, that is one of the more common encodings used in Japanese computing, along with ISO-2022-JP for emails, and EUC-JP for UNIX-like systems. All three are becoming increasingly rare, in favor of UTF-8. I mainly picked it for the domain hack (my first choice was ascii.express, which was sadly taken and unused).
