Backlit iMac

Love it love it love it!

Inspirational phone call

It's amazing that a phone call with a stranger can be inspiring and leads to several new discoveries about myself.
My Engrish shucks! I can't express more than 70% of what I want to say!I am so used to MSN that it's scary to talk real-time without the buffer of typing latency.It's time to refine my "I dont' give a shit about love" speech to something that better matches my mental state. Maybe something like "I am looking fot the right person, but in the mean time I still do my best to live a meaningfull and happy life".

Sex and The City 觀後感

It's a good movie, but I don't have much to say about it because I didn't see the TV show (don't ask me why I went to see the movie still)Sex, food, shopping and dogs are all related (to women), and somehow interchangable.

補 Narnia 2 觀後感

比第一集好看實在沒什麼了不起的。People will be easier on you if you suck most of the time; if you have a good record, people will take it for granted and raise the bar.Great victory tastes more sweet if preceeded by a small defeat.

Tips on Mac Conversion

As a new Mac User, I ran into many questions and problems with Mac. Weirdly, most of my Mac friends don't know how to answer any of my simple questions like "How to find my own IP" or "how to increase font size". Don't get me wrong: they are totally smart people who can probably troubleshoot TCP/IP stack overflow problems if need be, but somehow they just get "dumbed-down" when using Mac.

So, before I get dumbed down as well, let me write down some things I learn from Mac in the past couple of days.

1. How do I increase system font size?
The short answer is, you can't.
However, with TinkerTool, you can.
2. How do I run P2P on Mac?
The short answer is, don't. Use your PC for that.
But you can always get aMule(eMule) or Vuze(BT) if you really haveß to.
3. My mp3 songs show garbage characters in Mac iTunes.
If your mp3s are displaying correctly in Windows, convert all your songs' ID3 tags to version 2.4 in Wi…

Employee Award

昨天的 team building KTV 上, 有一場我事前不知情的 employee award 頒獎.在頒的時後, 我就在想, 如果我們這個部門也有獎的話, 應該是 M 和 G 會得.結果不出我所料~

They are both hard workers; they both have overloading projects and they manage to deliver with good quality. Basically they were given a lot of projects to begin with, they had no one to delegate, and they did a good job by doing it themselves.

我從來也就不是一個 hard worker; I am a smart worker, and a lazy one.加上我手腳快, Overloading 這種事幾乎是不會發生在我身上的.

那....我還會羨慕他們嘛?

My Stuff Has Arrived

在漫長的掙扎再掙扎,比較再比較後,我終於決定了新電腦。省略漫長的開箱,直接看成品吧!


電腦所附贈的禮品也送達了。感謝 Jenny!

My Second Blend

成分:
紅蘿蔔,玉米粒,海鹽,螺旋藻錠,蔓月梅乾,紅棗,枸杞,石蓮花,腰果,葵花籽,亞麻籽,黑芝麻,核桃,南瓜子,葡萄干,去皮檸檬半個,軟磷脂(膠囊打破 )。

今天打出來的果汁真的很難喝!檸檬的苦味非常的重!喝到中午的 Buffet 都吃不下!

My First Blend

成分:
紅蘿蔔,玉米粒,蘋果,海鹽,維他命 C 粉,螺旋藻錠,蔓月梅乾,紅棗,枸杞,石蓮花,腰果,葵花籽,亞麻籽,黑芝麻,核桃,南瓜子,葡萄干,A 菜,小白菜,空心菜。

由於不熟悉 Ez Blender 的操作方法,打了好幾次才打成功 - 結果出來的果汁居然是熱的!而且里面還是有很硬的顆粒,真不知道是那個蔬菜的....

最妙的是,"溫溫"果汁裡同時可以喝到海鹽的鹹,蔬菜的青,玉米的甜和堅果的香味,感覺還蠻詭異的......

The Thing with Giving Advises

Back then, I always thought why people don't take my advises (and I gave out TONS). Now that people do start taking advises, I realize that there are a million ways to interpret these advises.

So be cautious on that in the future; rather be silent than giving advises that might be misinterpreted. After all, if people just take the words literally without thinking beyond the words or having the right attitute, they probably won't get it either.

成功國中口琴社成發

昨天陰錯陽差的去聽了成功國中口琴社的成果發表會.
我深深的覺得,我已經跟年輕人的世界完全的脫節了啊!

看完半場,我深深的覺得我的腦子被高中生的無厘頭給搞爛了!
Still interesting experience though~

Look forward to more of those young chaos!

Apple or PC? Or Apple? Or PC..... Or Apple?

用了三年的電腦,最近當機的越來越頻繁。 而這一陣子,我就一直在為了物色下一臺電腦而傷腦筋:要買 PC 或是 Mac?

我個人對 PC 其實沒有特別的厭惡,對於 Mac 的外型也沒有多么的著迷;更重要的,我對於使用中的 iPod 和 iTunes 也沒有特別的喜愛,我甚至不喜歡 Apple "It's either my way or the highway",完全舍棄彈性來換取一致性及穩定性的的設計精神。不過,我又覺得基于我的 career,我應該要熟悉 Mac, 體驗一下整套的 Apple Experience. 不過,我最終還是卻步於他極端高貴的 price tag: 比起同等級的 PC, Mac 至少貴上 15,000!

不過,Apple 最近的 Back to School Special 非常的誘人; 折扣下來的 iMac 入門機種"只要" 28,000,幾乎只比同等級的機種貴個幾千塊,甚至比其他高度整合的 PC 還要便宜!

不過,擴充性低,加上還是很貴(還要再買一個 iPod 也很討厭),所以我還在繼續的掙扎中.....


而且,更加令人擔心的是,買了個 iMac 之后,接下來是不是要換掉那已經在掉漆的貼皮假原木書桌,和鋪上原木地板來搭配這位嬌客呢?

怪夢之品酒之旅

好久沒有做這樣的怪夢了。而且很長~
Scene 1
我決定要參加一個在非洲城堡的有氣質品酒之旅。只看到一張純文字海報,沒有照片,沒有寫行程內容,我就很瘋狂的決定參加。海報上的報價是由美國出發的價錢。

Scene 2
飛機在空中盤旋,機窗外看到的是大片的田地與磚紅色高樓交錯的安地斯山風景;對哦,如果是美國出發的話,目的地應該是到南美。嗯,但是我沒有買機票。我似乎是用上一次旅行的其中一張日本國內機票從臺北直接混上飛機的。至於上次旅行去了哪里,然后為什么要在箱根,熊本,藤原等地 轉4,5次機,我也不知道。

Scene 3
747 飛機奇跡似的在一個長得很像成功國宅的 空地上降落了。下了飛機,經過一家雜貨店後就出關了。這個陌生的城市非常的髒亂,垃圾隨風飛來飛去。我四周望了望,人們的眼神都相當的不友善。我一個人在 街上走著走著,突然看到一團臺灣來的旅行團:我好開心啊!當下混進那個團裡,感覺比較安全,卻看到領隊一直在瞪我。。"不好意思,我可以假裝是你們團員 嗎?..... (領隊還在瞪) No? OK...."

Scene 4
我一個人在街上閑晃,遇到兩個矮矮的年輕人。SOMEHOW 我的直覺告訴我他們會說中文而且是好人,所以我就問他們願不願意當我這個可憐的陌生人的 tourguide. And then they take me shopping! 一路上他們一直告誡我要小心扒手,小心扒手,加上我也覺得這邊治安很不好,所以我把護照,錢包和手機分別放在我的背心的內袋裡,并且把內袋的拉鏈和背心的 拉鏈都拉上了。

Scene 5
城市的路相當的彎曲,我們還必須穿過一家賣精油,蠟燭和類似曼谷包的奇怪商店。我很有興趣的彎下腰研究了那些包包,因為一個包才一塊錢(相當於臺幣10 元),但是後來還是沒買。一出了店門我就發現,我的錢包和護照都不見了!我很緊張的以為被店老板施了巫術偷走了; 我急忙飛奔進店里,一看我的東西好端端的在地上,老板娘還撿起來還給我 - 看來是我彎腰的時候掉了出來。

Scene 6
總算到了這邊的市中心。空曠的廣場,垃圾我在我面前飄呀飄,飄呀飄的,好不凄涼。在我面前有兩個類似 Abercrombie 但是我不認得的牌子的旗艦店。稍微逛了一下左邊這間後,我進去 Mall 的里面;在穿過了一個僅可以容納一個人,有著昏黃電燈的樓梯後,我們回到了這兩…
