Weather: Sunny Plan: Akagi JHS

The weather was really nice today. Spring is coming fast. I created a plan for what to do in my free time at work last week. The last free period of the day, I write in my journal in Japanese and post it here. The first free period I study Arabic. Today I wrote my first word. It is written "بَتَّ," pronounced "batta," and means "to achieve." After the Arabic period, I read the news. Then in the third free period, I practice Japanese. I will work hard in Japanese as well!

  • How hard is it to type in Arabic on modern keyboards? I assume there's a switching mechanism similar to the kata/hiragana keyboards, but can all symbols be represented?

    (And congrats!)
    • I have to find an overlay for my keyboard. There are only 29 letters in the alphabet, so all are represented, but it is guesswork to know which is what since there are a bunch of different ways to transliterate the script. I wish there was something like romaji for Arabic.

      As for adding Arabic support for XP, it is cake. I just went to the Regional Settings Control Panel, added Arabic, and rebooted. That's it!
