Last post I said I would get the official exam results on September 7th. That's still true.

But my professor called me today to tell me unofficially that I have passed the exam. I am now, for real, a PhD student at Tokyo University!

Goukaku shimashita! Ureshii desu! (I passed! I'm happy!)

Officially I start October 1st, unofficially I can start pretty much right now. Of course the big first task is going to be finding a research topic.

Now let's hope life as a PhD student isn't too much like it's depicted in PHD Comics. :P

Sorry if I said that wrong. I don't know Japanese very well.

Great software, by the way! Your Windows Mobile Japanese input panel is the best I've had the chance to use :D

Hi!! Great page!! Enjoyed reading!

Easy question for you! Does your input Japanese software have a way to convert to Kanji?

I have a TyTn II and installed the font, input software and could type Hiaragana in Word, but in Calendar only boxes appear !

Another thought!

Are both files

Japanese Input for Windows Mobile 5 and 6
Japanese Input source code

required on the Windows obile device?

Sorry to be a bit slow!
