TAPPED IN Calendar: http://www.tappedin.sri.com/cgi-bin/calendar/calendar.cgi
Foreign Language Forum is on 1st Thursday every month at 6pm Mountain.
It is held at SchMOOze University, a MOO environment similar to TAPPED IN we are using today. NETEACH is a listserv for ESL teachers, but topics are great interest to us, Japanese teachers.
Multilingual capability is there. You have to make sure your computer is upgradable to 2000. Check hardware requirements. After all, 2000 is an NT upgrade. If you have Office 2000, it should work fine. Other software might have backward compatibility problems. You may still need Japanese version of software (e.g. DreamWeaver J) to make fully Japanese capable.
My article on winter issue of AATJ newsletter: MS Global IME and Word 2000 http://www.asu.edu/clas/dll/jpn/aatj/articles/schneider9910.html Global IME works with Netscape Communicator 4.72 or later (Latest is 4.75) Greg Dablestein sensei reported MS Messenger (instant messaging tool) is also Global IME compatible. Me still seems to have some old software conflicts.
Third party software that makes it possible.
(List provided by Tae Kunisawa of University of Alberta)
Word processor only solutions:
ftp://ftp.cc.monash.edu.au/pub/nihongo/00INDEX.html 2. JWPce
Go to http://www.unionway.com and download evaluation version which allows you to use the software for 60 days free. You can type, send e-mail and make homepage in Japanese with this.
This is similar to AsianSuite 97 http://www.pspinc.com/lsg/kkit/index.htm
Although Kunisawa sensei left it out from the list, NJStart is also very popular. Similar to Kanji Kit and Asian Suite. Real version is said to be a lot better than demo version. http://www.njstar.com/
Mac OS 9
Japanese Language Kit (along with other languages) comes with the system. Catch? You have to have PowerPC processor and huge memory to run it. That means some Performa is lucky to be able to upgrade but nothing older. (For OS X, the next system, it is said that you need G3 chip. Scheduled to be released in March.)
Step-by-step graphical instruction on how to install Language kit, by Yasuhiro Omoto sensei from UC Berkeley.
Mac OS 8.x or earlier
If you don't have JLK already, you are out of luck? Apple and other stores do not sell JLK anymore. But wait, if you have OS8.5 or 8.6, maybe you can view Japanese, but not to write. If you have 68030 based chip or later, you can install old version of Kanji Talk, Japanese system.
Then you can later update to 7.5.5 with this updater.
Last touch to make you enable Japanese over the internet
For both platforms, you may have to play with browser setting. Here are examples with Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator.
My presentation at SEATJ '99.
If you can't print Japanese correctly and really desperate, print your page as graphic.

Upload to Yahoo/GeoCities free page
Today we are using a free web space from GeoCities to the account. It does have pop-up ads, but the functionality was the best I have tried from the free pages.
http://www.homestead.com will let you create a page and let you have a chatroom (highly doubt it is Japanese capable).
If you use McGraw Hill textbook, you can probably use http://pageout.net
If you are a Mac OS9 user, you can use iTool at http://itools.mac.com/itoolsmain.html
If you have lots of sound/video files and need lots of space, http://www.xoom.co will give you unlimited space (heard that it is difficult to connect)
