Japan is a place where I lived for a while. It is a place where many friends live, especially at Chiba University which is nearer the earthquake being on the north edge of Tokyo Bay. I have great concern for them. I also have a number of friends and peers that I know from Fuji and Konishiroku. So, it is not a place where stuff I like comes from. It is a place where friends are in trouble and whom I have tried to help. I think I said the rest of my motivation in post #11. It is indirect help for Fuji and a heads up for my friends on APUG of a potential problem.
I don't need criticism for this in any way I can see and comments to the contrary are totally off the mark!
