The ability to move.
Sorry, no example. This word is such a useless construct...

It is, and means, the Chinese characters. This conceptual writing system is believed to be totally archaic by the European linguistic experts who don't have a single idea about the whole thing. Their logic goes as follows, from the most primitive to their Latin:
pictures - hieroglyphs - kanji - syllabary (on the Cyprus island) - Greek - LATIN.
Which is a complete nonsense, to say at least. I will try to explain why KANJI is the best script for certain Asian countries and why it should come to our general knowledge as well.
When a language contains a lot of homophones, which is seen on a regular basis in Japanese and Chinese, putting it simply phonetically will not do for more complex texts. So the text is much more clear with the glyphs. It shall also be taken into consideration that different scripts are optimised for different audiences. Unlike Latin, which was developed for general public and needed to express tongue-twisting sounds, and is therefore good for fast learning (some children learn it in 1 week), the Kanji is targetted to well-educated and subsequently wise people. It is also proved that when one masters Kanji, he can absorb information 2 times faster than when reading Roman letters. But there's more: Unlike Latin letters, one can see interesting coherences in the Kanji's radicals, which allow an experienced reader to understand a new character without exactly remembering it, and, what's more interesting, enrich their mind with understanding how a difficult word can be made of the simpler ones.
Now one piece of information related strictly to the Japanese use of Kanji: They use both traditional and simplified variants of it, which may complicate simultaneous learning of Chinese and Japanese. They also include okurigana suffixes after the word roots to express the tense.

It is a successor to the Windows 2000 operating system that can be used both as a server and as a workstation, where a conversion may be done (although undesirable at the registry level - you essentially get a bloated XP then) by hand, preferably. The system runs indeed smoothly, but only if a person knows what he is doing. The system is more picky on various drivers' defects, so one has to adjust for example the service "Start" type from Auto (2) to On demand (3). The system also accepts nearly all Windows XP drivers (the Compatibility tab helps to the rest) so that no faux-pas seen on the Windows XP rise vs. older hardware can surprise you. You can download a Service Pack 1 for this system and integrate it into your installation to fix many bugs and enable the NX bit-based buffer overrun protection.
To return to the conversion to a desktop environment, I recommend tweaking in gpedit.msc a lot and copy nusrmgr.cpl from Windows XP to simplify the user management. You use the said Group Policy Editor to remove the "Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete" nag screen, remove the asking for the reason for shutdown etc.
Right now, I'm running many services and applications on my Windows Server 2003 box. They include all of the common internet services - the web, secure HTTP, FTP, DNS, DHCP, NAT routing with port forwarding and countless small ones. As for the user interface (UI), I use StyleXP. All "serious" applications work, I can play GTA:SA, DOOM 3, Manhunt, Postal 2 and most other such games under this OS.

Means "meal" in Japanese. Usually is used in connection with rice, so it's almost a synonym with it.
No example. It's also a first name, so please don't write that it's an insult.

Stands for Advanced Technology Extended (PC). Refers to the computer case, power supply and motherboard specifications. The older variety is AT.
When you assemble a machine, the 3 components mentioned above must be all of the same kind, either AT or ATX. The ATX power supply additionally offers a 3.3V power and 5V stand-by for keyboard power-on, Wake-On-LAN and possibly a non-interrupted USB slot. It is also software-driven, while the older AT kind can be only turned on/off manually.
Wow, this AMD K6 board has both AT and ATX power connectors! They have been thinking about everything!
