Microsoft Japanese IME, Symbol Dictionary

Is ♥.

\( ̄▽ ̄)/

  • \ is listed under “shasen” (斜線; slanted line);

  • ▽ is listed under “sankaku” (三角; triangle) along with bunch of other triangular symbols: △ ▲ ▼ ∵ and ∴.

Basically I only have to remember a couple of Japanese words that denote various shapes, and the IME gives me all the symbols it thinks I meant.  There's also an added bonus for me: When I don't know the corresponding Japanese word for some shape, I can just look up the pronunciation of Chinese letters used in the corresponding Korean word, and it usually works.  For example, triangle is written as 삼각 (samgak), whose Chinese letters are also 三角.

So convenient!  :D

But it didn't have ♥ listed under ハート….  :-p


I Think I Am Spoiled by DDR Freak

Every time I go to the Northern California board of ITGFreak.com, postwhoring of various degrees turns me off.  Okay, no actions are taken by mods there, so that's gotta be the norm there, but to me it's still unsighty.  -_-

Perhaps it's a good thing I don't frequent any other gaming forums.  For my own sanity.  Seriously. -_-
