Learned: 2.1 speaker + 2 more speakers = 4.1 speaker system?

So, "2.1 + 2 != 4.1" !

By TheCorm

2.1 + 2 would be 4.1 but the rear speakers obviously would have less bass because they don't have the benfit of a subwoofer.

Therefore in EAX enabled games, an explosion in front of you will have much more of a "BOOM" than explosions behind you.

The first Web server: It is only 20 years ago!

 August 6, 2011 is the 20th anniversary of public Web service. According to Wiki:
Wiki: World Wide Web

... On August 6, 1991, he posted a short summary of the World Wide Web project on the alt.hypertext newsgroup.[11]This date also marked the debut of the Web as a publicly available service on the Internet.
That is, in 1980's and before, it would be really difficult for people to imagine today's daily tools such as Portals, Directories, Search Engines, Wikis, and Social Networks.

Only 20 years! Amazing!

The world will surely evolve faster and faster. What would the world become 20 years later?! I cannot wait to see it!

[Music] Has Amado Una Mujer de Veras? (Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman)


Cuando la ames
dile que vive en tus sueños,
que no habrá ninguna más que ella para ti.

Y cuando le entregues
la promesa de tu amor eterno.
Sabrás si has amado tanto,
si has amado a una mujer de veras.

Cuando la ames
dile que vive en sus sueños.

Sabrás si has amado tanto,
si has amado a una mujer de veras.

More quotes in Body Worlds, collected by web searches

Life is the only art that we are required to practice without preparation, and without being allowed the preliminary trials, the failures and botches, that are essential for training.
-- Lewis Mumford

"True life is lived when tiny changes occur."
— Leo Tolstoy

Don’t part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live. ——mark twain

You stay young as long as you can learn, acquire new habits, and suffer contradictions. ~ Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
(Man bleibt jung, solange man noch lernen, neue Gewohnheiten annehmen und einen Widerspruch ertragen)

"My life was hurrying, racing tragically toward its end. And yet at the same time it was dripping so slowly, so very slowly now, hour by hour, minute by minute. One always has to wait until the sugar melts, the memory dies, the wound scars over, the sun sets, the unhappiness lifts and fades away."
— Simone de Beauvoir (The Woman Destroyed)

A man must have grown old and lived long
in order to see how short life is.
--Arthur Schopenhauer (1788—1860) German philosopher.

Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
-- Franz Kafka

“To know how to grow old is the master work of wisdom, and one of the most difficult chapters in the great art of living.”
Henri Frederic Amiel quotes (Swiss writer known for his masterpiece Journal intime, 1821-1881)

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
Mark Twain

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”
Abraham Lincoln quotes (American 16th US President)

“Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not”

Getting fatter. For what?

If you get fatter because you took too much "delicius food", that might be worth it because you had good time.

If you get fatter just because getting too much daily foods, then it would not be a wise thing.

If you get fatter because you are too busy making money to do exercise, that might be worth it because you did make more money.

If you get fatter just because staying late for not-so-fun TV shows, then it would not be a wise thing at all.

I say to myself: always decide what the good results are before doing anything!

卡巴斯基解除安裝工具, 官方網站連結

朋友打電話來求救, 說他電腦的防毒軟體 "卡巴斯基" 無法正常移除, 所以也無法安裝新的防毒軟體.

我在 Google 幫他找了許久, 找到這個官方連結. 不過, 這個連結我還沒有機會驗證, 因為我朋友還沒等到我的答案就自己解決了.
http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208279463

我從來都沒有用過 卡巴斯基, 所以無從評論他到底好不好用. 不過, 我可以從 Google 搜尋當中, 感覺到他的解除安裝問題, 還真的困擾著蠻多人的.

Google Search: "卡巴斯基 移除"


至於我朋友如何自我解決的呢? 原來他自己也做了 Google 搜尋, 他不記得找到哪個連結, 但是按著該連結的說明 "下載執行檔案後, 執行" 就解決了. (危險動作, 請勿模仿!)


我在電話中和他只能一起開始祈禱, 這個不明的檔案不是惡意程式!


友善的操作介面真的很重要! 防毒軟體操作錯誤, 而因此中毒, 實在是非常諷刺!

Great web sites can be browsed by various browsers without difficulties. When I visit Facebook, Google, or Twitter, I do not have to switch the browser I use to make the display correct.

If your web site is only well displayed for some browser, then I bet it must not be "Great"!

Fw: Making Twitter more secure: HTTPS

HTTPS content encryption feature finally comes! Without this feature, all your interactions on Twitter could be monitored by "bad guys".

 
 

Sent to you by Li-Ji via Google Reader:

 
 

via Twitter Blog by cpen on 3/15/11

Today, we're taking an important step to make it easier to manage the security of your Twitter experience – we are adding a user setting that lets you always use HTTPS when accessing Twitter.com. Using HTTPS for your favorite Internet services is particularly important when using them over unsecured WiFi connections.

For some time, users have been able to use Twitter via HTTPS by going to https://twitter.com. We've made it simpler for users to do this by adding the option to always use HTTPS.

To turn on HTTPS, go to your settings and check the box next to "Always use HTTPS," which is at the bottom of the page. This will improve the security of your account and better protect your information if you're using Twitter over an unsecured Internet connection, like a public WiFi network, where someone may be able to eavesdrop on your site activity. In the future, we hope to make HTTPS the default setting.


We've already made this setting the default for a number of clients and activities. In these cases, HTTPS is used whether or not you've enabled the "Always use HTTPS" setting:
  • When you log into Twitter, so your password stays protected.
  • On the official Twitter for iPhone and iPad mobile application.

There are also a few instances where turning on HTTPS in your settings does not force HTTPS. For example, when accessing Twitter from your mobile browser, you need to go to https://mobile.twitter.com to use HTTPS for now. We are working on a solution that will share the "Always use HTTPS" setting across twitter.com and mobile.twitter.com, so you don't have to think about which device you're using when you want to check Twitter. If you use a third-party application, you should check to see if that app offers HTTPS.

 
 

Things you can do from here:

What the game 'Starcraft' has taught me

1. You always have to act before everything is ready.
2. Multitasking is a basic mental requirement.
3. If you spent too much time on unnecessary tasks, you will surely lose in the end.
4. Delegation is necessary and important. Delegate, or lose.
5. Combat and economy are equally important.
6. Prioritize your time, always!
7. Always get prepared for some necessary loss. No loss no gain!
8. If you win, do not get too satisfied. It might be the result of your opponents' failure!
9. Sometimes you lose to computer opponents because they always follow the planned schedules, and you did not.
10. Attacking is an effective tactic of defense.

Profit helps recovery

A restaurant on busy street was burnt down by accidental fire. However, it recovers very fast. It resumes its operation now only after a few days!

I believe this is because the location is very profitable. No time could be wasted on time to recovery!

If you want to re-install Nokia Apps, you have to remove that App clean first!

After I removed "Battery Monitor" App, I still could not re-install that App again on my Nokia N97 Mini. The App's "Download" link is always grayed out in Ovi Store.

The cause is, I did not remove it cleanly. I found this key point from the following texts by Google-ing.!
Nokia Support Discussion

Betreff: Nokia battery monitor

@aref_b

Make sure you remove everything related to the Battery monitor in Settings|Application Management|installed Apps

1. Battery Monitor Installer (left behind after install, another bug due to shoddy programming)
2. Battery Monitor
3. Battery Monitor Service

After removing all that you should be able to redownload.

不進步, 就會被淘汰

任何公司都應該以此為戒! 即使曾經風光一時, 只要進步跟不上, 不出幾年, 連存在的空間都沒有了!

Thursday, February 10, 2011

原來她還年輕, 祝福妳們!

一上公車, 我就注意到座位上坐著一位留著長髮, 但是顏面傷殘的女性成年人. 她應該是不幸被燒燙傷的吧! 臉上, 還有手上, 沒有一塊皮膚是原生的. 為了避免造成她的困擾, 我不敢一直看著.

旁邊坐著一位三十歲左右的健康男性,跟她一來一往地交談著。因為距離的關係, 我聽不到她們之間的對話. 我也沒辦法從她的表情感覺到她們在聊些甚麼. 在凹凸不平, 厚薄不均, 再生後僵硬的皮膚下, 即使有表情, 我真的也沒辦法解讀. 我頭一回體驗到這種窘境.

我的心中閃過一個問題: 她們之間的有甚麼關係? 是兄妹? 姐弟? 母子? 我實在找不到任何線索來判斷. 很難從燒燙傷復原後的外觀看出,她的年紀有多大, 她們是不是一家人. 肯定不會是父女, 因為男性年紀並不大. 隨著公車繼續前進, 我的心也跟著轉到其他的生活瑣事去了. 這個無解的問題, 望著車外來往的人和車, 我就忘記了沒有再去思考它.

我要下車前, 忍不住又看了她們一回. 眼前看到的情景, 我才頓悟到, 我找到問題的答案了!

原本兩位都是端坐在座位上. 我看到的這時候, 兩個人就像路邊的情侶一樣, 她正斜躺在男性的胸口前, 男性也溫柔地摟著她, 應該是在撒嬌吧! 如果是情侶或是夫妻, 兩個人的年紀都應該差不多年輕才對!

她們都還有很長很長的人生! 外表的傷也許記錄了一場短暫的意外, 她們之間一定有著更長久的, 共同的甜蜜回憶, 讓她們都忘了傷痛的存在, 繼續走下去!

陌生的情侶, 我祝福妳們!

Fw: How To Delete A Vista Backup Set? - Vista Forums

This post solved my problem!

Mark L. Ferguson:

...
Open the location where the backup is saved.

For example, if you backed up your files to an external hard disk labeled
"E," connect the external hard disk to your computer, and then open drive E.

Right-click the folder containing the backup you want to delete, and then
click Delete.

Notes
Backups are saved in this format: \\Backup
Set . For example, if your computer name is Computer,
your backup location is E, and you backed up on April 2, 2006 at 16:32:00,
that backup would be located in E:\Computer\Backup Set 2006-02-04 163200.
You would right-click the folder named Backup Set 2006-02-04 163200 to
delete that backup.

When you make a full backup, a backup folder is created and labeled with the
date for that day. As you add updates, that date stays the same, but your
backup is not out of date. The next time you make a full backup, a new
backup folder is created and labeled with the date for that day, and any
updates are then added to that new folder. You should not delete the current
backup folder.

What 'Dora the Explorer' taught me

1. There is always a clear goal.
2. The whole work is always broken down into three-step milestones.
3. Goals and milestones are read out loud over and over again until the goal is completed.
4. When a milestone is reached, a clear signal of completion is given back.
5. There is always a clue for you to solve any problem.
6. Nothing is impossible. Keep walking.
7. The journey is more interesting than the destination.
8. Dora is always busy with new interesting goals.

有趣的對話:休息是為了走更長的路

"有道理!休息,是為了走更遠的路"

"是的!他還有很長的路要走!

K-Lite Codec Pack H.264 playback no video problem

A video file in my computer can be played successfully before. After I upgraded existing "K-Lite Codec Pack", only the sound can be played.

I also used the MediaInfo tool check the video file content. The video is encoded in H.264.

I do not know why, but I cured this problem by opening "Codec Tweek Tool" / "Manage preferred DirectShow source filters", then at ".AVI" section change from "Microsoft (default)" to "Haali".

Interesting! Anyone knows why?

侯文詠-不乖 比標準答案更重要的事

我覺得 侯文詠 的文字非常活潑而流暢,不只是讀的時候不停地刺激我大腦的想像力,讀完以後更有煥然一新的感受。我個人極力推薦這本書!



管他乖或不乖,好或不好,都應該用心感受自己的人生

我不是屬於 “乖” 的這類人,可是,很多時候常常因為「懶」-懶得獨立思考、懶得去「迷戀」喜歡的事、懶得面對失敗,我總覺得人生少了甚麼。

獨立思考可以從「問對問題」開始,問題可以刺激我們去思考,好的問題可以引導我們往正面積極的方向去尋求解答。尋求解答的方法可以是運用「通則->個案」的「演繹法」,或者是「個案->通則」的「歸納法」,來思考得解答。更重要的是,我們需要保持開放性,隨著碰觸到的現實,不斷地思辨,不斷地變動,不能一成不變,也就是實現黑格爾的「辯證法則」。這樣的過程,才真正是獨立思考。

喜歡的事,雖然會多花心力去做,如果沒有到達「迷戀」的程度,就沒有辦法做到最好,沒有辦法得到「迷戀」的快樂!「認真」強調的是痛苦的層面,用痛苦來換得成功。然而成功的過程總是比較久,結果總是比較短,讓自己老是在比較長的時間中一直感受到痛苦,那人生真的很沒意思!如果可以「迷戀」,那過程和結果都將是一樣的快樂!人生不就是應該一直讓自己保持快樂,這樣活著才有趣啊!

迷戀地去做一件事,不代表一切都會順心如意,每個人都會遇到不同程度的失敗。沒有人永遠不會遇到失敗,所以正確地面對失敗,學習和人生中必然的「失敗」相處,人生才會經常成功。面對失敗,可以用玩遊戲的心情來面對它,其實也沒那麼不好受;面對失敗,才會開始問問題,才會開始找解答,才會有進步的空間;作者提到莎士比亞的一句話:凡是過去,皆為序章。面對失敗,接受失敗,就是成功的序章。

掌握技巧,可以讓「知道」變成「做到」

接受事實,不需要去阿Q是地扭曲現實,就是往「做到」的第一步驟。

接下來,需要有「全面的構想」,讓自己更知道有限的 時間 和 資源 要如何分配,同時也讓旁邊的人知道要如何幫你。

最後,就是要開始行動。可以先讓自己有「孤獨感」,讓自己從和接下來的行動無關的世界抽離出來;讓自己「專注於此時此刻」,「只要把心綿綿密密地放在這一步… 再遠的路,不過就是剎那之間的距離。」。這是聖嚴法師所說過的話。

行動時,總會遇到困難,這時候,「回首初衷」,讓自己重新想像目的地在哪裡,如此就能不斷地審視每個行動和它的結果,是否持續朝著目的地前進,偏離了馬上就可以修正。

快樂是人生的一切

有成就,不一定要變得不快樂。一個快樂的人,不管發生了甚麼事,總是能釋放出正面能量,讓周遭的人感受到溫暖和喜悅。

遇到不順心的挫折情境,可以用「切斷情緒與行動之間的聯繫」,讓自己不會再遇到挫折和失敗時,做出錯誤或事不可挽回的反應。

這時候還可以跳脫「我」的觀點,用更全面性、更全知的觀點,把事情的來龍去脈仔細想個一遍。

遇到不可改變的現實,可以運用轉念,運用幽默去面對。

人生不是一場競賽,人生的意義是為了讓自己快樂,是為了分享快樂給周遭所有的人!
