Microsoft plans quick fix for IE

Microsoft is due to issue a patch to fix a security flaw believed to have affected as many as 10,000 websites.

The emergency patch should be available from 1800 GMT on 17 December, Microsoft has said.

The flaw in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser could allow criminals to take control of people’s computers and steal passwords.

Internet Explorer is used by the vast majority of computer users and the flaw could affect all versions of it.

So far the vulnerability has affected only machines running Internet Explorer 7.

“Microsoft teams worldwide have been working around the clock to develop a security update to help protect our customers,” the software firm said in a statement.

“Until the update is available, Microsoft strongly encourages customers to follow the Protect Your Computer Guidance at, which includes activating the Automatic Update setting in Windows to ensure that they receive the update as soon as it is available,” the statement read.


Update your IE asap or switch other browsers. Although I am not a fans of IE but i will still download the patch to update it. Currently i am using Firefox, it is whole lot better than IE.

I’m afraid of Manju




In the 10th episode of Toradora, Minorin make fun of Taiga and Ryuuji with “Manjuu Kowai” method.  This is the a troll from the 17th century’s Rakugo. Below is the translation of this Manjuu Kowai story.


Ryuuji & Taiga

I’m afraid of Manju

It was a gathering of the youngsters in a town. They began to talk about what they were afraid of one after another.
“I’m afraid of snakes. I don’t like the way they move zigzag.”
“I’m afraid of badgers. They will change into ghosts.”
“I’m afraid of spiders. The web is very sticky.”
“I’m afraid of bats. They fly in night.”
“I’m afraid of caterpillars. They hide under a leaf.”
“I’m afraid of ants. They move in a long line.”


Everyone there but a young man spoke what he was afraid of. The man was lying himself on Tatami(straw mats used in Japanese house).
“Mr. Pine. What are you afraid of?”
“Afraid! I have nothing to be afraid of.”
“Aren’t you afraid of snakes, spiders, ghosts?”
“Of course, not.” said he, sitting up.
“A snake! When I have headache, I tie it around my head. It’s cool.”
“A badger! If a ghost appear, I’ll make it cook, wash and clean.”
“A spider! I mix it into Natto(fermented soybeans eaten in Japan) and stir it.”
“A bat! I’ll make an umbrella of it.”
“A caterpillar! I’ll tie it on a stick and brush my teeth.”
“Ants! I’ll scatter about them on rice instead of sesame.”
He suddenly stopped speaking.


“What’s the matter?” asked one of his friends.
“I remembered one I am afraid of.”
“What is it? Do tell me what you are afraid of.”
“I’m, I am, afraid, of, Man, Manju(bun stuffed with sweetened paste).I am afraid of Manju.”
“Manju? What kind of animal is it?”
“It’s not an animal. It is sold at a candy shop. Oh, the mere thought of it makes me feel sick.”
His face became paler and paler.
“I can’t sit up any more. Would you make me a bed in the next room?”
He went to the bed, covering his head with bedclothes.
Hearing and looking at him, everyone there smiled, discussed and decided to play a trick on him.
Some of them went out buying Manju in the town and returned with many kinds of Manjus. Sake Manju, Hot Spring one, Soba(buckwheat) one, Chestnut one, Red and White one, Funeral one, Meat one and so on.
Putting them on a wooden tray, they carried it near the bed secretly and waited for him to notice it.
“Hey, Mr. Pine. Wake up! It’s time we broke up this meeting.”
“I see. I’ll get up, but don’t tell me about it any more.”
“All right. We never talk about it.”


There was a cry from the room.
“Oh, my God! It’s Manju. So many Manjus.”
Everyone in the next room was satisfied to hear his cry.
“Shame on you! Why did you do me harm? You broke your promise. I’m afraid of Manju. Very afraid of Manju.”
The louder he cried, the more they laughed at him.
“Oh, this is a Sake Manju. I’m afraid. afraid….”
“Oh, this is a Chestnut Manju. I’m afraid, afraid…. Oh, I am afraid of all manjus. Delici…. Afraid….. “
They noticed something was strange with him and peeped into the room.


“He looks happy. He is eating Manju. We were tricked by him. Hey, Mr. Pine. What on earth are you afraid of?”
“I am afraid of a cup of delicious Green tea.”


This is one of the series i definitely not going to miss to watch every week. I like this comedy love series because there appears to be some progress in the relationships between Ryuuji and the girls in almost every episode.
Not only that, they’re not just resetting everything after every arc just like others  “normal” comedy love anime series.
