Earlier we brought you the news of VIA's new C7-D Carbon free processor.
With the pairing of VIA's C7-D CPU and CN700 chipset, it has won adoption by UK-based Evesham Technology and Tranquil PC. Both vendors have announced new carbon-free PCs based on the VIA C7-D processor platform, according to VIA.

The Evesham Carbon3 and Tranquil PC carbon-free systems, such as the new T7, bring together ultra-energy efficient operation and the offset of the CO2 emissions produced from the operation of the systems over their lifetime through investment in UK-based projects in energy conservation, reforestation, and alternative energy.

According to David J Thompson of Tranquil PC's, "...in the UK and EU there has been a real shift in organisational demands where they are taking a serious look at the environmental impact of their IT infrastructure purchases"

$15?(Although it also depends on how you wear it).



Depends who you mean. The wielder or the victim

I think the Tachi was the two handed sword, as opposed to the single handed Katana, which were sometimes wielded in pairs.

Normally the length of the hilt can determin the difference between the two.

(If my memory serves me right. From when I did my studies a few years ago)

nice sword. I got pv some show case swords, there is three on a stand, I'll get him to put a pic up for you. He can also tell you a lot about swords.
The movie with Tom Cruise "the last samurai" is great and also "Kill Bill". Great sword movies.

No...

Tanto's are usually used in pairs (Kinda like Sai). Daito sometimes come in pairs, the katana would be pared with a smaller blade, about the size of a tanto, but katana's are double handed swords (although there are single hand styles, but they aren't common). Tachi were also double handed. The main difference between the two being that Tachi's have longer blades than Katana's, which is the main way to distinguish between them.

As for the wielder, if the swords suspended from the wearer's belt or obi by cord (and obviously with the blade pointing downwards), it's a tachi, if it's through the obi with the blade edge pointing upwards, it's katana.

Thought I'd get it a bit wrong, hence my "memory clause".

Thanks for putting it right Phnom_Penh;) , I'll have to read up on it again.

I have a friend who runs The Oriental Arts Centre in Norwich here in the UK. He's got quite a nice display of samurai equipment, and his brother makes 1/4 scale armour and weapons. One day he gave me a huge 1metre square picture of the Golden Pavillion in Kyoto.

Any of you guys in the US visited the National Gallery of Art in Washington?
I believe they have quite a large display from the Daimyo Period.

I have got a couple of samurai figurines that I built and painted. Maybe I'll put a couple of pics up;).

Don't mean to hi-jack your thread Spiritd, but here's the pics:

This was the first one I built. Made from white metal and painted in enamels and acrylic. Took 3 days to paint, sometimes working into the small hours. It doesn't depict anyone in particular, but the mon is that of the Hosokawa.

This next figurine really tested my nerves and patience. White metal and painted with enamels and acrylic. This one took 3 weeks to build in total. Again no-one in particular, but the helmet ornament maedate is that of Masamune.

Bearing in mind that at the time I made these I was suffering badly from depression.
