+Just about everyone i talk to these days about ess seems to be scared
+witless about the 2600hz detector. i don't know who thought this one up,
+but it simply does not exist. so many of you people whine about this so
+-called phreak catching device for no reason.
+someone with at&t said they had it to catch phreakers. this was just to
+scare the blue-boxers enough to make them quit boxing free calls.
+i'm not saying ess is without its hang-ups, either. one thing that ess can
+detect readily is the kick-back that the trunk circuitry sends back to the
+ess machine when your little 2600hz tone resets the toll trunk. after an
+ess detects a kickback it turns an m-f detector on and recordes any m-f
+tones x-mitted.
+
+## DEFEATING THE KICK-BACK DETECTOR
+
+As mentioned in my previous note, kick-back detection can be a serious
+nuisance to anyone interested in gaining control of a trunk line.
+the easiest way to by-pass this detection circuitry is not really
+by-passing it at all, it is just letting the kick-back get detected on
+some other line. this other line is your local mci, sprint, or other long
+distance carrier (except at&t). the only catch is that the service
+you use must not disconnect the line when you hit the 2600hz tone.
+this is how you do it: call up your local extender, put in the code,
+and dial a number in the 601 area code and the 644 exchange. lots of other
+exchanges work across the country, i'm sure, but this is the only one
+that i have found so far. anyway, when it starts ringing, simply hit
+2600hz and you'll hear the kick-back, (ka-chirp, or whatever). then you are
+ready to dial whoever you want (conferences, inward, route and rate,
+overseas, etc.) from the trunk line in operator tones! since blowing
+2600hz doesn't make you you a phreaker until the toll equipment resets
+the line, kickback detection is the method at&t chooses (for now)
+this information comes as a result of my experiments & experience and
+has been verified by local at&t employees i have as acquaintances.
+they could only say that this is true for my area, but were pretty sure
+that the same idea is implemented across the country.

Dialing:

As stated before, Alliance is only in certain stated and only these states
can access them via dialing direct. However, dialing direct causes your
residence to be charged for the conference and conference bills are not low!!!
Therefore, many ways have been discovered to start a conference without
having it billed to ones house. They are as follows:
- 1) Dialing through a PBX
- 2) Incorporating a Blue Box
- 3) Billing to a loop
- 4) Billing to a forwarded call

The equipment now thinks that the operator has dialed Alliance from her
switchboard and the conference shall be billed there. Since Blue Boxing
is such a large topic, this is as far as I will go into it's uses.
Billing to a loop:
-------- -- - ----

loop. A loop is 2 numbers that when two people call, they can talk

Thus, the conference is billed to the loop.
Billing to call forwarding:
-------- -- ---- ----------
+--------------------------
+
When you dial a number that is call forwarded, it is first answered by
the original location, then forwarded. The original location will
hang up if 2600hz is received from only ond end of the line.
Therefore, if you were to wait after the forwarded residence answered,
you would receive the original location's dial tone.
- Example:
+### Example:
+
Dial 800-325-4067
+
The original residence would answer, then forward the call, a second
type of ringing would be heard. When this second residence answers
simply wait until they hang up. After about twenty seconds you will
then receive the original residence's dial tone since it heard 2600hz
from one end of the line. Simply dial Alliance from this point and the
conference will be billed to the original residence.
+
These are the four main ways to receive a free conference. I am sure
many more exist, but these four are quite handy themselves.
Logon Procedure:
------ ---------
+---------------
+
Once Alliance answers you will hear a two-tone combination. This is their
way of saying 'How many people do you want on the conference dude?'
Simply type in a 2-digit combination, depending on what bridge of Alliance
you are on, between 10 and 59. After this either hit '*' to cancel the
conference size and inout another or hit '#' to continue.

You are now in Alliance Teleconferencing and are only seconds away from
having your own roaring conference going strong!!!

- IN THE EARLY DAYS OF BRITISH PHREAKING, THE CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY TITAN

-SUBSCRIBER TRUNK DIALING (STD), IS THE MECHANISM WHICH TAKES A CALL FROM THE
-LOCAL LINES AND (LEGITIMATELY) ELEVATES IT TO A TRUNK OR INTERNATIONAL
-LEVEL.#THE UK PHREAKS FIGURED THAT A CALL AT TRUNK LEVEL CAN BE ROUTED THROUGH
-ANY NUMBER OF EXCHANGES, PROVIDED THAT THE RIGHT ROUTING CODES WERE FOUND AND
-USED CORRECTLY. THEY ALSO HAD TO DISCOVER HOW TO GET FROM LOCAL TO TRUNK LEVEL
-EITHER WITHOUT BEING CHARGED (WHICH THEY DID WITH A BLEEPER BOX) OR WITHOUT
-USING (STD). CHAINING HAS ALREADY BEEN MENTIONED BUT IT REQUIRES LONG STRINGS
-OF DIGITS AND SPEECH GETS MORE AND MORE FAINT AS THE CHAIN GROWS, JUST LIKE IT
-DOES WHEN YOU STACK TRUNKS BACK AND FORTH ACROSS THE U.S.#THE WAY THE SECURITY
-REPS SNAGGED THE PHREAKS WAS TO PUT A SIMPLE 'PRINTERMETER' OR AS WE CALL IT:
-A PEN REGISTER ON THE SUSPECTS LINE, WHICH SHOWS EVERY DIGIT DIALED FROM THE
-SUBSCRIBERS LINE.
-
- THE BRITISH PREFER TO GET ONTO THE TRUNKS RATHER THAN CHAINING. ONE WAY WAS
-TO DISCOVER WHERE LOCAL CALLS USE THE TRUNKS BETWEEN NEIGHBORING EXCHANGES,
-START A CALL AND STAY ON THE TRUNK INSTEAD OF RETURNING TO THE LOCAL LEVEL ON
-REACHING THE DISTANT SWITCH. THIS AGAIN REQUIRED EXHAUSTIVE DIALING AND MADE
-MORE WORK FOR TITAN; IT ALSO REVEALED 'FIDDLES', WHICH WERE INSERTED BY POST
-OFFICE ENGINEERS.
-
- WHAT FIDDLING MEANS IS THAT THE ENGINEERS REWIRED THE EXCHANGES FOR THEIR OWN
-BENEFIT. THE EQUIPMENT IS MODIFIED TO GIVE ACCESS TO A TRUNK WITH OUT BEING
-CHARGED, AN OPERATION WHICH IS PRETTY EASY IN STEP BY STEP (SXS)
-ELECTROMECHANICAL EXCHANGES, WHICH WERE INSTALLED IN BRITAIN EVEN IN THE 1970S

- A FAMOUS BRITISH 'FIDDLER' REVEALED IN THE EARLY 1970S WORKED BY DIALING 173.
-THE CALLER THEN ADDED THE TRUNK CODE OF 1 AND THE SUBSCRIBERS LOCAL NUMBER. AT

-COULD HIDE THEIR FIDDLES IN THE NEST OF SERVICE WIRES. WHEN SECURITY REPS

+ NOTE: The british post office, is the U.S. equivalent of Ma Bell.
+
+In Britain, phreaking goes back to the early fifties, when the technique of
+'toll a drop back' was discovered. toll a was an exchange near st. pauls
+which routed calls between london and nearby non-london exchanges. the trick
+was to dial an unallocated number, and then depress the receiver-rest for 1/2
+second. this flashing initiated the 'clear forward' signal, leaving the caller
+with an open line into the toll a exchange.the could then dial 018, which
+forwarded him to the trunk exchange at that time, the first long distance
+exchange in britain and follow it with the code for the distant exchange to
+which he would be connected at no extra charge.
+
+The signals needed to control the uk network today were published in the
+"institution of post office engineers journal" and reprinted in the sunday
+times (15 oct. 1972).
+
+The signalling system they use: signalling system no. 3 uses pairs of
+frequencies selected from 6 tones separated by 120hz. with that info, the
+phreaks made "bleepers" or as they are called here in the u.s. "blue box", but
+they do utilize different mf tones then the u.s., thus, your u.s. blue box
+that you smuggled into the uk will not work, unless you change the
+frequencies.
+
+In the early seventies, a simpler system based on different numbers of pulses
+with the same frequency (2280hz) was used. for more info on that, try to get a
+hold of: atkinson's "telephony and systems technology".
+
+In the early days of british phreaking, the cambridge university titan
+computer was used to record and circulate numbers found by the exhaustive
+dialing of local networks. these numbers were used to create a chain of links
+from local exchange to local exchange across the country, bypassing the trunk
+circuits. because the internal routing codes in the uk network are not the
+same as those dialed by the caller, the phreaks had to discover them by 'probe
+and listen' techniques or more commonly known in the u.s.-- scanning. what
+they did was put in likely signals and listened to find out if they succeeded.
+the results of scanning were circulated to other phreaks. discovering each
+other took time at first, but eventually the phreaks became organized. the
+"tap" of britain was called "undercurrents" which enabled british phreaks to
+share the info on new numbers, equipment etc.
+
+To understand what the british phreaks did, think of the phone
+network in three layers of lines: local, trunk, and international.#in the uk,
+subscriber trunk dialing (std), is the mechanism which takes a call from the
+local lines and (legitimately) elevates it to a trunk or international
+level.#the uk phreaks figured that a call at trunk level can be routed through
+any number of exchanges, provided that the right routing codes were found and
+used correctly. they also had to discover how to get from local to trunk level
+either without being charged (which they did with a bleeper box) or without
+using (std). chaining has already been mentioned but it requires long strings
+of digits and speech gets more and more faint as the chain grows, just like it
+does when you stack trunks back and forth across the u.s.#the way the security
+reps snagged the phreaks was to put a simple 'printermeter' or as we call it:
+a pen register on the suspects line, which shows every digit dialed from the
+subscribers line.
+
+The british prefer to get onto the trunks rather than chaining. one way was
+to discover where local calls use the trunks between neighboring exchanges,
+start a call and stay on the trunk instead of returning to the local level on
+reaching the distant switch. this again required exhaustive dialing and made
+more work for titan; it also revealed 'fiddles', which were inserted by post
+office engineers.
+
+What fiddling means is that the engineers rewired the exchanges for their own
+benefit. the equipment is modified to give access to a trunk with out being
+charged, an operation which is pretty easy in step by step (sxs)
+electromechanical exchanges, which were installed in britain even in the 1970s
+(note: i know of a back door into the canadian system on a 4a co., so if you
+are on sxs or a 4a, try scanning 3 digit exchanges, ie: dial 999,998,997
+etc.#and listen for the beep-kerchink, if there are no 3 digit codes which
+allow direct access to a tandem in your local exchange and bypasses the ama so
+you won't be billed, not have to blast 2600 every time you wish to box a call.
+
+A famous british 'fiddler' revealed in the early 1970s worked by dialing 173.
+the caller then added the trunk code of 1 and the subscribers local number. at
+that time, most engineering test services began with 17x, so the engineers
+could hide their fiddles in the nest of service wires. when security reps
+started searching, the fiddles were concealed by tones signalling: 'number
+unobtainalbe' or 'equipment engaged' which switched off after a delay. the
+necessary relays are small and easily hidden.
+
+There was another side to phreaking in the uk in the sixties. before std was
+widespread, many 'ordinary' people were driven to.
+
+Occasional phreaking from sheer frustration at the inefficient operator
+controlled trunk system. this came to a head during a strike about 1961 when
+operators could not be reached. nothing complicated was needed. many
+operators had been in the habit of repeating the codes as they dialled the
+requested numbers so people soon learnt the numbers they called frequently.
+the only 'trick' was to know which exchanges could be dialled through to pass
+on the trunk number.callers also needed a pretty quiet place to do it, since
+timing relative to clicks was important the most famous trial of british
+phreaks was called the old baily trial.#which started on 3 oct. 1973.#what
+they phreaks did was to dial a spare number at a local call rate but involving
+a trunk to another exchange then they send a 'clear forward' to their local
+exchange, indicating to it that the call is finished;but the distant exchange
+doesn't realize because the caller's phone is still off the hook. they now
+have an open line into the distant trunk exchange and sends to it a 'seize'
+signal: '1' which puts him onto its outgoing lines now, if they know the
+codes, the world is open to them. all other exchanges trust his local exchange
+to handle the billing; they just interpret the tones they hear. mean while,
+the local exchange collects only for a local call. The investigators
+discovered the phreaks holding a conference somewhere in england surrounded by
+various phone equipment and bleeper boxes, also printouts listing 'secret' post
+office codes. (they probably got them from trashing?) the judge said: "some
+take to heroin, some take to telephones" for them phone phreaking was not a
+crime but a hobby to be shared with phellow enthusiasts and discussed with the
+post office openly over dinner and by mail. their approach and attitude to the
+worlds largest computer, the global telephone system, was that of scientists
+conducting experiments or programmers and engineers testing programs and
+systems. the judge appeared to agree, and even asked them for phreaking codes
+to use from his local exchange!!!

-## Introduction 自己紹介
-
-Hello, my name is Anonymous and I have been studying Japanese for 1 year. A few months ago I was giving some advice to a friend and decided to write a guide. I hope you read it and tell me what you think. The language is rude, no I won't change it.
-
-EDIT: Apparently some faggots have been saying shit like "1 year? nigga you know shitty Japanese. Why should I listen to you?"
-ああいう奴らが最低だと思うよ。知らない人に噂を流して、意地悪いことを言う。それは許さないよ。文句あればコメント書いてみて
-
-## A little background on the writing system
-
-First of all, let me explain what hiragana, katakana and kanji are. Hiragana and katakana are the main writing 'alphabet' of Japanese. Each funny symbol corresponds to one sound, like "ka, ki, ku, ke, ko" ”かきくけこ” or something. A hiragana/katakana will ALWAYS sound the same when you read it. This is not like English where the letter 'a' can sound different in 'father' or 'fate'. In Japanese, things will always sound exactly as they appear. So, what is the difference between hiragana and katakana? In short, hiragana is used for words that were originally Japanese and katakana is used for words that are foreign. You will find that Japanese use lots of foreign words, like "pa-so-kon パソコン" = "personal computer" and it is written in katakana. Katakana looks very rough and straightened, hiragana looks very rounded. What does all this mean to you? This means you have to memorize two alphabets and whenever you get to read katakana you get a treat, you can read some funny Engrish.
-
-Now, what is Kanji? As you may have guessed, Kanji originally came from China. One Kanji represents one idea or action. In written Japanese, Kanji replace most of the hiragana in standard words and there is no way to know what hiragana it replaced meaning you cannot 'read' unless you already know what it is supposed to sound like. This means you have to memorize it. Like if I said "Good 朝(morning)!" If you did not know that 朝 meant "morning" you would be fucked. Kanji is a pain in the ass, but dont let it get to you. It gets easier with time. I'm not just saying that, it really is true.
-
-There really is a lot more to Kanji than I want to explain, so go read the wikipedia page if you want to know more. By the way, something cool is that the Chinese use the same ass kanji as the Japanese and the meanings are the same. This means that if you know the kanji for 'water' 水 or something in Japanese, it also means water in Chinese. Anyways, on to the actual guide, go to wiki if you want to learn more (I seriously reccomend this).
-
-TLDR: 3 alphabets. hiragana/katakana are the two basic ones. Kanji is the complex ass one that everyone hates.
-
-## STEP 1: Kana
-
-### Nama Sensei. Watch all of the videos
-
-Watch nama sensei. He is rude as hell, but he is a good motivator. I wouldnt have bothered to be where I am if it wasnt for nama sensei.
-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZEA54VJEdE&list=PL9987A659670D60E0
--Whenver you learn a hiragana, katakana or kanji, write it fifty fucking times, CORRECTLY, you bitch! Use these sites below for learning them.
-
-### Starting out:
-You're going to learn hiragana and katakana and ditch romaji as soon as possible. Romaji is BAD FOR YOU. It will fuck you up if you get used to it. What is romaji? It is when people write Japanese with this alphabet, the alphabet we are using now. The roman alphabet. Shit like "watashi wa sensei desu" or some shit. AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE. Once you learn hiragana and katakana, never go back.
-
-### Hiragana Practice:
-
-While watching nama sensei, when he teaches a hiragana, go to this site:
-http://www.umich.edu/~umichjlp/Hiraganapro/ and learn to write the correct stroke order.
-Learn 5 at a time. and then go to
-http://www.realkana.com/hiragana/
-and practice what you learned until you have a strong grasp at the ones you know. And when you learn 5 more, practice with just the 5, then all the ones you know. Before even going further, you must know, without a doubt, every single hiragana and katakana. Its like the fucking alphabet. Cant read without that! Also, hardmode: The two fonts on the right. Those are handwritten, and you best be able to recognize them.
-
-## Step 2: Grammar
-
-### Genki:
-After you get all the kana down, download Genki I and II. This is a proper textbook. The best, if I say so myself. Eead it ALL. Here is their setup: They have a paragraph for each chapter, then they explain what they did in the paragraph. So read the chapter, then go BACK and read the paragraph. At the back of the book they have kanji. You best be learning these too. Every 2 chapters or so, learn 1 chapter of kanji in the kanji chapters in the back. Don't worry about their audio CD, I found it a bit shitty. Try to do 1 or 2 chapters a day.
-
-### Rosetta Stone:
-
-Some time after you finish Genki, or are very close to finishing, do this.
-Download Rosetta stone, then the Japanese II and III language packs (skip one if you want).
-Here's my take on Rosetta stone: It will teach you a lot of bullshit words and sentence phrases, terrible in teaching grammar, but is AMAZING for listening comprehension. Turn that shit up and listen to what they're saying. It REALLY helps you identify words in speech. Sucks dick at everything else. Don't bother with their 'writing' portion or anything that does not involve you listening, really.
-
-## Rikaichan:
-
-ATTENTION EVERYONE SERIOUS ABOUT LEARNING JAPANESE.
-YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THIS ADDON.
-IT'S NOT A RECOMMENDATION, IT IS AN ORDER.
-Get this Firefox addon for all your random translations, which you WILL need. Expect to translate hundreds of things, over and over.
-
-http://www.polarcloud.com/rikaichan/
-
-It translates anything you mouse over, 1 word at a time. If you don't know grammar though, you wont be able to figure it out, so that's what you read Genki I and II for. If you don't know what a word means, just write it down and mouse over it. This is, without a doubt, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN HAVE. Its better than a normal dictionary because it will unconjucate for you and show all possible answers to your words.
-
-Again, I recommend Rosetta stone for listening practice only. They don't teach grammar for shit, but it keens your ears to listening. MAJOR FUCKING HELP. Use Rosetta side by side with Genki, if you want.
-
-## Step 3: GET YOUR FEET WET
-
-### Practice:
-
-Finished all those books? Time for practice. Find any SNES, GBA, GB or NES game you like... in Japanese. They don't use kanji, so after you know your kana, you can start playing. If you know zero grammar, you wont get very far, though, so best get some grammar first. GENKI teaches you grammar, do that first. When playing, if you come across shit you don't know, and fucking believe me, you will constantly be doing this, --- Type the whole sentence into some text box, turn on rikaichan (the FF addon), mouse over words you don't know, then piece the sentence together. I found that games like Pokemon were easier than the easiest manga ever. Just make sure that you READ EVERYTHING. Do not skip shit. I know its a game, but keep in mind that you are playing only so you can learn. Get to work bitch.
-
-Also, I advise playing/reading something that you already know what happens. Many of you already pretty much memorized what everyone said in Pokemon, or your favorite manga or some shit, but when you read it in Japanese, if you know what to expect, reading will go much smoother. Also, Manga is nice because you can actually see the goddamn shit that is happening.
-
-
-### Anki:
-
-HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
-Now for remembering words, you will need anki. Anki is a little timed flash card thing. EVERY time you come across a word you decide is worth remembering (which should be like 95% of the words you see), add it to ANKI. Do it however you want, but I recommend having the front of the card be kanji + kana reading, then right below it, full kana reading (so you can read it), then on the BACK of the card, the meanings.
-
-Let me rephrase that.
-1. Find new word that you want to learn
-2. Open your word deck in anki
-3. Add new card to deck
-4. Cut paste the entire definition of the word onto the back of the card
-5. Cut paste the entire reading of the word (they have a reading with kanji, then a reading without, copy both) onto the front of the card.
-6. Add to deck
-
-PS: Set your card timers to this (there are 4 timers). hard- show in 6-12 hours, medium-show in 1-2 days, hard-show in 3 days.
-
-When you review your deck (FUCKING DAILY), if you cant guess the meaning, flip the card, then set it to 'soon', so its back in your queue. If you can guess it, choose whether or not it was easy medium or hard. Eventually words will burn into your head, so you can throw those out of the deck.

-### In Anki, get the pre-made JLPT1,2,3,4 decks
-
-Look through the options in the menu bar for "download shared deck". Search for JLPT and you can find JLPT1,2,3 and 4 decks. Start off by downloading JLPT4(they count down to 1). It includes 80 kanji, all the kanji that little kiddos in Japan learn in first grade. Genki will teach you these, but use the flash cards to see if you can identify them out of a lineup. Start with 4, then after you learn ALL of them, grab 3. DO NOT REMOVE 4. Review deck 4 while learning deck 3. Continue until you are working on JLPT1, then cancel the 5-a-day approach. I've found that some of the kanji in JLPT1 are just too fucking rare. At that point I just add them to the 'should be reviewed' list if I have seen it once in practice. If I come across a kanji that I don't know in practice, aka in a manga or game, I add the word to the list of words I should know AND I add the kanji to the list of kanji I should know. You do this by reviewing the kanji just once, then from there on it will automatically be put into your 'should be reviewed' portion.

-* JLPT4 - 80 Easy as shit
-* JLPT3 - 245
-* JLPT2 - 984
-* JLPT1 - 2100+ Contains all of the joyo kanji (I think). I noticed it has all of them up to grade 8, just an observation.
-
-Note: later decks include the previous deck in them.
-
-Every day learn 5 of them. Reviewing is a breeze too. It takes like 2-5 seconds to identify a card. even if its 100 cards, that is less than 10 minutes a day, goddamn. Minimize 4chan and do anki. EVERY DAY. Protip, never use the "easy" button. The more you see the kanji the more you will understand it. Even if it is firmly burned into your head, seeing it more can only help.
-
-Also, for those of you that don't know what JLPT is, it is short for Japanese Language Proficiency Test. People who learn Japanese can take a test to see what 'level' they are at. Along with grammar and vocabulary differences, each level uses a different amount of kanji. JLPT1 is the highest level, and is said to be equivalent to a student ready to apply to a Japanese university.

-## Notes:
-So how long will it take before you feel pretty good about Japanese? After 100 hours or so you should have most of the core grammar down. At this point, you should be able to read things, with the aid of a dictionary. For all you WOW players, that's like level 60. If you stick through with the Rosetta stone listening comprehension, you can probably hold your own watching children's shows like "Anpanman" at this point. You won't get everything, but you should be able to get at least 20% of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TblYJkcNCkQ&feature=&p=CCC703EC66A730D1&index=0&playnext=1
-
-How long until you are an expert at Japanese? Someone once said it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at anything. I wouldn't disagree here. You won't feel native until 10,000 hours, but don't let that hold you back. If you put 1000 hours into it you will have a solid grip on the language and can likely understand normal conversations. You can watch anime and know what is going on, with the occasional dictionary reference. 1000 hours and you will feel like you know the language. Think that's a lot? Please, I put 7000 hours into WOW itself. What do I have to show for it? I can fucking tell you anything about WoW between the years of 2004-2009. Means jack shit for everything else though. Anyways, 1000 hours you should be sufficiently pro at Japanese.
-
-PS: When you watch your anime, try to listen to what they are saying. Fuck the subs, just listen sometimes.
-
-And for god's motherfucking sake. PRACTICE DAILY. do SOMETHING japanese for a while every day. You can watch anime with subs as long as you LISTEN to the shit they are saying without reading much. Every single day you must do something in Japanese. Read 1 manga chapter. Play your game for 30 minutes. Listen to jpop for an hour while reading the lyrics.
-
-Good luck bitch. One month from now you could know basic japanese. Remember though, learning isnt a function of total time since you started, but how much time x work you put into it. Every day you don't learn japanese, you forget something. Get your shit together faggot!
-
-Remember, if you are not having fun learning, there is going to be a problem. If you aren't having fun, you're going to get bored and stop practicing daily. If you get bored, for gods sake, find something interesting to do in Japanese. Find a new game, or a new manga or something. Translate some songs or whatnot, fuck around on nikoniko douga. For god's sake, HAVE FUN.

-## Another note
-
-The HARDEST PART is when you are still learning the basics and shit feels so slow. It takes 5 mins just to read a small paragraph and you may still be unsure of the meaning. Just stick with it. After you drop 200 hours and you get a firm grasp at the basics, learning will be MUCH easier. Before you have a leg to stand on, and you have to look up 2-3 words per sentence, shit is tough. Stick with it, it gets easier. Kanji gets easier the more you know them. Many times I can guess the meaning of a word (correctly) just by recoginizing the kanji. Hell, I can even pronounce it right, too.
-
-## More shit you shoud look at:
-
-* **Remembering the Kanji**: Some people like this, I dont. At least check it out though.
-Hiragana in mangaland: Read this after genki. They have lots of stuff genki didnt cover, but genki is still beter
-* **Kanji in mangaland**: A bit childish, but good kanji reading practice. Definitely reccomend it.
-More to do with ANKI: Look at the shared decks, you will see JLPT 2,3,4 kanji decks. Start with deck 4, once you conquer it move to deck 3, then 2. If you finish 2, you are a god.
