Just hit “TAB” to insert one new row, in PowerPoint 2010’s Table

20121130_164221I do not know what the real cause is for this problem. Sometimes when using the menu command showing a small menu on my Lenovo X220, both with keyboard or with mouse right button, the menu just disappears before I can do anything meaningful.

薯條

機場裡面,將又熱又香的薯條倒進餐盤,我一個人,一口吸著可樂,一邊咬著。

想著稍後的行程,也想著這幾天的精彩時刻,不知不覺中,我的餐盤裡面,只剩下長度比較長的薯條。

平常我和女兒一起吃薯條的時候,我都會先將短的吃掉,留下長的給她。因為老婆告訴我,油炸過的面積,長的薯條比較小,應該比較不妨礙她的健康。

女兒吃薯條時滿足的各種模樣,開始在我腦中浮現。剩下的長薯條,我一根一根慢慢地咀嚼。我笑了,原來,薯條是這麼的美味!

秦淮河畔

秦淮河畔

作曲:姚敏
作詞:棟孫
主唱:蔡琴

今夜有酒今夜醉 今夜醉在秦淮河畔
月映波堤 燈照堤岸 如花美眷倚欄杆

歌的歌 舞的舞 聲聲相思為誰訴  步步愛憐為誰踱
蜜意柔情為誰流露 為誰流露

歌的歌 舞的舞 朵朵櫻唇為誰塗  層層脂粉為誰敷
美語柔情為誰傾吐 為誰傾吐

Updating "Shortcuts to insert current date and time into MS Word 2010"

I found something wrong in my previous post.

In fact, my original intention is to insert a quick time stamp while I am editing MS Word documents. However, "Alt-Shift-T/Alt-Shift-D" method inserts a dynamic time stamp: the inserted object is in fact a variable, and get updated every time I save that document.

That is, when I save the Word document, all such time stamps become exactly the time I save the file. Of course, this is not very desirable to me.

I researched again in Google, and found this page.
Insert The Current Date to Word – Statically, Not as an Updating field | ProductiveWise

The keyboard shortcut for inserting the current date into a Word Document is ALT+SHIFT+D. The problem is that the inserted date is a live filed, so it is being updated every time you open the document.

To insert the current date without it ever being updated (that is, to insert the current date as simple text) – press CTRL+SHIFT+F9 when the cursor is inside the added field.

Conclusion

Use "Alt-Shift-T, then Left Arrow, then "Ctrl-Shift-F9", to insert a time stamp about time.
Use "Alt-Shift-D, then Left Arrow, then "Ctrl-Shift-F9", to insert a time stamp about date.

(Quite ugly to me! Can anyone teach me shorter ways to insert such static time stamps in MS Word? I really appreciate that!)

從我小時候,我一直都這麼認為,"台灣人不可能有人進得了 NBA"。

我真的錯了!而且錯得很離譜!

1. Believe in yourself when no one else does.
Lin’s only the 4th graduate from Harvard to make it to the NBA. He’s also one of only a handful of Asian-Americans to make it. He was sent by the Knicks to play for their D-League team 3 weeks ago in Erie, PA. He’d already been cut by two other NBA teams before joining the Knicks this year. You’ve got to believe in yourself, even when no one else does.

HA and DR Licensing of Cisco Prime LMS 4.1

Single license of LMS is OK for HA and DR! I did not notice this!
Licensing Information


In a high availability or a geographic redundancy option, the LMS is active on only one server at any given point in time. Hence only a single license of LMS needs to be procured to be shared between the two servers (Primary and Secondary servers) running in Active-Standby mode respectively.

Licensing of Cisco Security Manager 4.2

For these two reasons, I believe most enterprises should start from "Standard-25" (Standard version 25 devices) or better versions:

  1. Standard-to-Professional upgrade license can only be applied on "Standard-25".
  2. 90-day Evaluation License: this is for Professional version only.

Fwd: Spandau Ballet - True



I only remember part of its melody. With the help of Midomi, the search engine of music, I finally found the original song!

Spandau Ballet Lyrics, True Lyrics

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
So true.......
Funny how it seems.....
Always in time, but never in line for dreams.
Head over heels, when toe to toe,
This is the sound of my soul. (This is the sound)

I bought a ticket to the world,
But now I've come back again.
Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
When I want the truth to be said.......

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.

With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue,
Dissolve the nerves that have just begun.
Listening to Marvin all night long.
This is the sound of my soul. (This is the sound)

Always slipping from my hands,
Sand's a time of it's own.
Take your seaside arms and write the next line,
Oh, I want the truth to be known.......

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.

*break*

I bought a ticket to the world,
But now I've come back again.
Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
When I want the truth to be said.......

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.

I know this much is........
I know this much is.......
True.

I know this much is......
I know this much is.......
True.

I know this much is......
I know this much is.......
True.

I know this much is......
I know this much is.......
True.
Have fun with me!

Belle nuit, ô nuit d'amour,
Souris à nos ivresses,
Nuit plus douce que le jour,
Ô belle nuit d'amour!
Lovely night, oh night of love,

our tender caresses for ever!
Time flies far from this happy oasis
