After a recent format to make some space, I decided to replace ageing software with Free / Open Source Solutions, so I have put together this list of some of the Best Free Software. This is a general list useful for most Windows users (XP targeted), and best installed directly after formatting or on a new PC!

Well I’ve finally left the comfort of my Japanese Family and into a Share house in Nakanosakaue / Shinjuku. It quite possibly used to be an old prison looking at the doors, but its friendly enough
After ditching my bags I rushed to Kichijoji to go to Studio Ghibli Museum! Only Phil will know this place, Hayao Myazaki is a great Anime director, including the Famous ‘Spirited Away’, ‘Princess Mononoke’, ‘Totoro’. He strictly keeps to traditional animation techniques and produces great features.
The museum was crazy, some awesome displays of animation styles, original story board art etc. Its geared towards kids with many low roofs and tunnels, making it hard for us 6ft people to get around.
The gift shop only stole a small amount of my cash
Enter Akiharbara (electric town). In 1 year this place has hugely changed, but it’s still the massive maize of electronic stores it was last year. I managed to resist buying a PSP, XBOX 360 and more before going to Overlord Pictures.Akyama San is the director of the J-Film ‘Hinokio’ we worked on last year. He opened up a trunk to show us the actual Hinokio robot model used in the film! Then on to a Nabe Party at another company who was working on Akyama’s Next film. With More food and drink and an old school Godzilla type movie – classic!
We got delayed on the train back due to an ‘accident’. Apparantly this quite often means somone has jumped in front of a train, but they don’t actually say that.
