Scheme is thriving in Japan. As proof I offer a link to a Japanese version of Planet Scheme, namely Planet Scheme Japan . I couldn't resist reading the site with a little help from Google Translate, and the translation is at times quite amusing.
Hopefully one of Planet Scheme's Japanese readers can help us get with the real translation of: "Solving a Museum of the evening, I coffee." (Search for "571" in order to find the post on the Japanese site).
