Seeing that video sends me back in time to the late 1960′s and early 1970′s when I frequented NYC’s Radio Rows along Canal Street, West Broadway and Chambers Street. I really miss that!
What is a bit freaky is seeing many of the locals wearing dust masks. Is Toyoko air so polluted that people need to wear these things, or is it a “tin foil hat” type thing with people thinking it will protect them from radioactive fallout from the nuke power plant that melted down last year? (Though I thought that Toyoko was far enough away not to be affected).

@k – in japan, when someone is sick they wear a mask.
Those SMD perfboard stick-on adapters are genius! Does anyone know if any US suppliers carry them? I checked the website of the manufacturer, Sunhayato, but they want 3000 yen (~ $37 US) for overseas shipping.
