Ireland Trip 2019

WHEN YOU ARE OLD When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true, But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face; And bending down beside the glowing bars, Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled And paced upon the mountains overhead And hid his face amid a crowd of stars. – By William Butler Yeats 当你年老时     ...

Apply UK Visit VISA

Background I was planning to attend #adskfootball2019 in Dublin, Ireland from Jun 14th to Jun 16th, 2019: Autodesk Football Tournament 2019 In order to attend, I needed applying Ireland VISA, and since I was planning to fly back to Shanghai later in June, so I thought I could just fly from SF to Dublin, then Dublin to Shanghai, and soon I realized that there is no direct flight from DUB to PVG, so a practical (and also very fun and economic) option is to fly from Dublin to London, and then London to Shanghai, bingo ^_^

FC Barcelona Miracle Comeback!

0:4到6:1 - 史诗般的逆转 From 0:4 to 6:1 - Epic comeback 2017年3月8日,巴塞罗那诺坎普球场,加泰罗尼亚足球巨人巴塞罗那队坐镇主场迎战巴黎圣日耳曼队,带着首回合0:4的比分,开始了几乎所有人都认为的荣誉之战,绝大多数人(包括我在内),都认为巴萨可能会赢,但绝不可能翻盘,自有欧洲冠军杯以来,没有任何球队在落后4球的情况下能搬回来,迄今为止最惊天动地的翻盘出现在13年前,AC米兰主场4:1战胜拉科鲁尼亚,回到拉科主场,由马凯,潘迪亚尼、贝莱隆等人领衔实现4:0的疯狂逆转。此次虽说巴萨有世上无双的MSN三叉戟,巴黎账面上也绝对比当年的AC米兰差了点点,但是毕竟巴萨可是可怜得连个客场进球都没有,而大巴黎状态正佳,进1球就几乎可以宣告巴萨死刑,因为在此情况下他们需要进6球,面对由当世顶尖中卫蒂亚戈席尔瓦领衔的大巴黎防线,这种期望值是否太。。。然而,足球就是足球,理性分析与实际结果的差距经常巨大!就在此时,就在此地,巴塞罗那队实现了欧冠历史上绝无仅有的超级大逆转,全世界所有足球迷,即使不是巴萨的粉丝,都被此神迹彻底燃爆! Mar 8th 2017, Camp Nou stadium at Barcelona, the Catalan giant faced Paris Saint Germain, with a 0:4 loss take...

My Book <Instant Cucumber BDD How-to>

The background I received an email during November 2012 from Packt, in the email they asked me whether or not consider writing a book for them related with BDD using Cucumber based on Rails platform, the book will only contains 50-70 pages, they named this kind of book "Instant book", usually it is a quick guide for beginners using some kinds of technologies. Well, my first reaction was: "Wow, I even never thought about writing a book, if I am going to write one, hum... can I?", I did suspect myself a little bit, especially, the book will be written in English, I admitted I was not confiden...

2011年10月17日 - 应该被定为国耻日

视频地址 我不知道在这个蓝色的生命星球上,有几种动物会无视自己受伤的同胞,然而,我天朝佛山的这帮渣滓做到了,彻彻底底地做到了! 今天,作为一个中国人,我感到耻辱到极点,为有如此禽兽不如的同胞,为活在这个伟大的“河蟹射会”,为了无处发泄胸中不满,为了太多太多的不公平,不公正! 倘使今日有一强权国家侵略我中华,我华夏儿女团结一致,奋勇抗敌,则不会有任何可耻之处。然而,这段视频给予鄙人心灵上的创伤,已远超肉体上的伤痛! 鄙人以为:对于交通肇事伤人并逃逸的罪犯,最终造成被害人死亡的,肇事人应被判处故意杀人罪。 网上查了下:目前刑法的有关法律条文如下: 根据刑法第133条的规定,犯交通肇事罪的,处3年以下有期徒刑或者拘役;交通运输肇事后逃逸或者有其他特别恶劣情节的,处3年以上7年以下有期徒刑 因逃逸致人死亡的,处7年以上有期徒刑。 更新:今天(10月24日),看到新闻 - 小悦悦已经死亡,无尽的悲痛。。。哀莫大于心死!我对某些人,某些事,已彻底心死!  贴几条网友评论,可以代表鄙人观点: "最近一周以来,我的脑海里每时每刻都有那个孩子的视频,我的孩子也是2岁多,也和悦悦一样是那么可爱的年龄,我都不敢完整看完视频,只一个镜头就已经让我心碎了。仿佛自己就是那个孩子,无助,痛苦;也仿佛自己就是那些冷血过客之一,愧对我们的孩子啊。这个世界到底怎么了,一条...

帮助这些被遗弃的孩子 - 从身边微小的事做起

上个周六,我陪老婆去参加一个公益活动,感触颇多,谨以短文一篇记录下所见,所思,所想。 Shanghai Healing Home由一群工作上在上海的老外们创建,他们从各种途径(一般是医院)收养被遗弃的患有先天性唇腭裂的孩子们,起初自己出资,慢慢地呼吁有爱心的人资助,逐渐地发展到一定规模,目前一共大概收养了25个孩子,他们中的一部分已经通过好心人的捐赠以及组员的沟通与努力成功实施了手术,跟正常的孩子无异,并且有些孩子已经提交相关组织申请领养。 我们的工作是帮助搬家,下午2:30约在广兰路地铁站集合,然后帮忙把东西从广兰路的一幢房子搬到巨峰路,大概一共来了快20个人,我和老婆是这次唯二的中国人。。人齐了后,组织者Lauren开始分工,我和老婆被分到照顾小孩,(照顾小孩的都是女人,就我一公的。。我估计一来我们第一次参加跟他们不太熟,不好意思让我们干重活,也可能考虑到英美鬼畜力气大些,我想起了敢死队里杰森·斯坦森对李连杰说的:“Four and a half??”),anyway,我只想多多了解下。 初到孩子们的“家”,立刻感觉到温馨与仁爱,同时又觉得有些心酸,坦白说我也非常愤怒,可谓是百感交集,。但是在3个多小时跟这些可爱的孩子们一起的时间里,一个最简单的词可以概括:开心! @可爱的小光头他妈和一个可爱的孩子(已经做过手...

初为人父 - 人生中那些最重要的时刻

2011年1月25日晚7点36分,在经历了八个多月的期待之后(第一个月不知道),我和老婆一起见证了一个新生命的诞生:一个小男孩,“虎尾巴”,也有一个他爸爸给他的名字:叶皓宇。 谨以这篇Blog随笔记录这样一个我人生中最重要的时刻。 前期准备 我和老婆在准备期间做个很多功课,包括网上线下课程及请教身边朋友,同事等等,除了妈妈和宝宝的衣服、奶瓶,尿不湿等一些必备物品,一些辅助生产的东西包括一次性床垫,巧克力,野山参,喝水用的吸管等也都进行了采购。然后我们早已商量好并决定使用家庭化产房,我希望能够全程陪同亲爱的老婆,支持她,鼓励她,我相信能够在心理上很大程度上给她自信与勇气去面对这重要的、未知的第一次(事后老婆跟我说我的全程陪伴在很大程度上帮助了她),并且我们的目标是顺产,当时痛苦,但过后恢复快,身材恢复也快,而且不会在肚皮上留下难看的手术痕迹,总之,顺产是绿色的,是上帝赋予的能力,不到万不得已,我们都希望顺产。 分娩过程 25号早上起床时,老婆确实有说她晚上睡觉时感觉肚子里感觉跟平时不太一样,不过根据当时的情况我们两都不认为当天会发动,我照常去上班,大概在上午11点多,我们项目组正在开会,我接到老婆电话,说有见红,我于是赶紧驱车回家,回到家老婆正在洗澡,这个是她之前就盘算好了的--一旦有反应,马上洗澡,因为可能有段时间没法洗了。等她洗完,她说没有感觉疼痛,于是我么就...

初为人母 - 我家小虎顺产记

今天是顺产后的第12天了,月子里的事情稍微理顺了些,在公公婆婆和老公的悉心照料下,人也恢复有精神,该是时候交作业去记录生命中那最重要的一天,作为对自己生命中一个重要里程碑的纪念^_^。 2011年1月25日,预产期前一天,终于盼来了宝宝发动的信号。从上午11:00见红到晚上7:36宝宝出生,整个生产过程(PS:医学上分娩过程的三个产程:第一产程,从规律性宫缩至宫口全开;第二产程,胎儿娩出;第三产程,胎盘娩出;)共计历时八个多小时,外加产后二十多分钟的缝针和产后2个小时的观察时间,这些对我来讲按照痛苦指数可分为以下四个阶段: 一、谈笑风生阶段 11:00 我还赖在床上,由于前一晚肚子一直硬邦邦的,外加些微的腰酸,没有休息好,所以平日里尽量陪老公起床吃早餐的我真的是懒得动了,外加宝宝一夜几乎没有胎动,我很是担心,用胎心仪听完宝宝咚咚有力的心跳后,还是不放心地晃晃肚子,以此希望宝宝动一动来抚平我那颗悬着的心。这一晃不要紧,宝宝不但没动,并且下身哗哗的流出一小股微红的液体。我不确定到底是见红了,还是羊水破了。没关系,平时看的一些理论知识现在派上用场了,我很镇定地先等了等,去分辨到底是哪一种,以便采取不一样的措施。我先用纸巾擦干净下身,坐立一会,看看是否还有液体流出,结果等了一会儿没见再流出来,便断定不是羊水破了,只是见红而已。于是喊来婆婆,告之了一下情况,然后得出一致结论是见红...

2010年5月23日 - 属于Nerazzurri的一天

意大利当地时间5月22日晚,国际米兰2:0击败拜仁慕尼黑获得09-10年度欧洲冠军杯,同时一举获得“三冠王”,成为意大利历史上第一支获取三冠王的球队! 这一夜,对于全世界所有的<A href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nerazzurri" target=_blank>Nerazzurri</A>而言,是无比骄傲与幸福的!国际米兰经历一个漫长而艰难赛季,最终没有留下任何遗憾!电话门之后最困难的赛季,意大利杯战胜死敌罗马,欧冠半决赛淘汰上赛季六冠王巴萨!他们创造了历史!这样的球队配得上所有的赞美,国米完成一个完美的赛季! 在全场结束哨声吹响的那一刻,在萨队举起大耳朵杯的那一刻,在整个伯纳乌响彻《Pazza Inter》的那一刻,熬了一整夜有些疲惫的我,嘴角浮现出一丝微笑,眼里也有一点点幸福的泪水。我在电视机镜头里看见很多Nerazzurri留下幸福的泪水,无论男女老少,作为中国球迷我也许没有他们的感触那么深刻,但是,从96年开始,我便开始喜欢这支蓝黑色的球队,因为他对冠军的强烈渴望,因为他高贵而忧郁的气质,因为他有很多我喜欢的球星,因为他有一个慈祥善良的主席。。。更因为,他一次又一次的倒在成功的路上:球星黑洞,换帅如麻,阵容强大但发挥极不稳定,一到关键时刻就掉链子。。。联赛关键战役输给尤文(金童皮耶罗的成名之作),最...

欺实马

欺实马,草泥马和河蟹的杂交近亲,没有生育能力。传说古代钱塘今浙江杭州有一口古井,叫交井,相传此井下压着被草泥马排泄物封印的不知名妖孽。 当时的钱塘富贾中流行着一种风俗,每每遇到灾祸,富贾们都将家中宝物钱财投入此井,以求消灾避祸,少则几万,多则几吨。奇怪的是此井被没有因此而变浅,终年寒气逼人。当地百姓甚为恐惧。 公元2009年5月,被尘封了几千年的无名妖孽终于冲开了草泥马排泄物的封印,冲出交井,再度祸害人间。经过砖家和教授的一致认定,把此妖孽取名为欺实马。 今日因诸多此类事情心情很压抑。。 “房子会被强拆,女儿会被嫖宿,发帖会被跨省追捕,小孩会吃到三聚氰胺,高考成绩都会被冒用,过个马路会被飙车党撞死 “你在辛苦读书的时候,他们在玩玩具你在休息的时候,他们在谈恋爱你拼命考了个大学,他们不费一点力占用了你的名额你在大学苦读书学技能的时候,他们在玩游戏在开车泡吧泡妞吸粉你大学毕业的你辛苦的在找工作,他们已经被ZF机关单位“考核”录用了你守交通规则走在班马线上,他开着车违规把你送上天了!你家人辛苦

令人无比失望的2009上海车展

由于对2007年的上海车展一直印象深刻,并且当时就立誓下次的车展一定要参加,再加上这次又是公司提供的免费票,所以,这次是志在必得要一次看个够!不过有句话叫:“希望越大,失望越大。”,用在我对于09车展这件事情的关注与希望上,就再贴切不过了。 周五晚上睡觉之前发现早上9点半时火箭队开拓者的第三场季后赛争夺,并且是火箭主场迎来的本赛季第一场季后赛,所以决定先看看这场重头戏吧。大概到了12点多,比赛打完,火箭如愿以偿赢得胜利,我也就平添了一份好心情,于是和老婆赶紧出发直奔国际博览中心,经过2个多小时的不间断的拥挤与汗水,我们就不堪重负,逃跑了。。。 对于车子,我是个准外行,来车展就为了看看Porsche Cayman S,BMW  M5, Nisson Skyline, Mazda RX-8, Lamborghini Murciélago, etc. 可发现他们中的大部分都没有来,而且,几乎80%的车子的们都是锁着的-不让进去瞧(07年,以上这些车都有,RX-8还可以坐进去瞧瞧)!至于参观的人数,则一定是创纪录的!!!门票价格坎了一半(07年100,09年50),主办方在参展人数上预计根本没打算进行任何限制!这些因素让人玩性

西雅图 - 我的第三故乡

武汉->上海->西雅图。我留下过足迹。。。 西雅图被誉为美国最适合居住城市十几年,看来确实名不虚传,现在12月份了,却真不太冷;雨虽多,但至少这2个礼拜我也看出来了,现在早就处于全年中的雨季了,也就是隔三岔五的下着淅淅沥沥的小雨,可想想家家户户都有暖气,人人都有车,下点雨不算什么,尤其是永远清新的空气质量,在国内只有乡下才能吸到。。。 西雅图有100多年历史,闻名于世的星巴克咖啡,航空巨头波音的总部(已搬走,不过博物馆还在,去参观的游客络绎不绝),再就是软件巨人微软,还有太空针电视塔,雷尼尔山(Mountain Rainier),还有。。。《西雅图夜未眠》:) 我在这边生活,工作了半年,对她确实充满喜爱之情,一种发自内心的感激之情,毕竟无论日后我做什么工作,过什么样的生活,这个地方给了我一个学习,成长的机会,这段不算长的时光却必定在我人生旅程中留下深刻而重要的记忆! 雷蒙德一角。这里是通往520浮桥的高速入口,520浮桥连接西雅图市中心和雷蒙德。蓝蓝的天,清新的空气。 <IMG title=P1050183 style="BORDER-TOP-WIDTH: 0px; DISPLAY: inline; BORDER-LEFT-WIDTH: 0px; BORDER-BOTTOM-WIDTH: 0px; BORDER-RIGHT-WIDTH: 0px" h...

我现在正在使用她写下这篇Blog:) 执行力+灵敏嗅觉,促成了这比划算的买卖,MS跟SONY的EPP砍下21%,再加上200美刀Off的coupon,最终check out时的价格是660刀,关于这个Hot Deal的讨论在“组织”里极其热门,过了好久还有人在问(后来Coupon到期了。。。),我没有错过!虽然这也许不是最划算的买卖,或者日后有更划算的买卖,但是这都不重要,重要的是我在一个正确的时刻,及时的搞到了这比买卖,足够精明^_^ 送货的时候出了点小意外,Fedex的策略我觉得有问题(IMHO),昨天中午(周五)我track问道包裹时发现“Delivery Exception – Customer not available or blah blah”,包裹此时在Kent, WA,离Redmond有19英里,一股不详的预感笼罩着我,毕竟上次我曾经有过教训(地址搞错了一点),我决定,这次无论如何也不能让那帮SB SBLG的把我的包裹原封不动地再弄回圣迭戈!!! 马上查电话,GOFedex,OK。。得到的回答是,他们的员工去了我的apt,发现没人,所以回来了,明天会再次去,如果还没人,那就下周二最后一次机会,我马上说,今天周五,我在上班,家里当然没人啦,这可是常识啊!!那鸟人不管,他只说他们一直这么做的,我说你们也没有任何人给我打个电话啊!答曰,我们一般都不会打电话给客户。...

谈点感想,为什么美国是这个星球上最强大的国家

今年2次赴美的经历,可以说很大程度上改变了我的人生观,世界观,价值观,行万里路,读完本书,书我没读,但是我读了人,每个人都是一本书,尽管我的英文水平还不能跟他们进行很深入的沟通,但在这半年中我跟无数美国人交谈,我了解到了很多我感兴趣的问题,了解他们的想法,他们解决问题的思路,他们对某些事情的反映,他们的习惯,等等等等。。 我希望了解到底为什么这个国家现在全球最强大?美国人跟其他国家的人最大的差别在什么地方?答案也许不那么简单,原因有很多,欧洲移民者对既有制度的再升华(《五月花号公约》《独立宣言》等等在当时具有革命意义的制度),强调各种人权(生存权,自由权,追求幸福权),对通过自己努力获取成功的完全尊重(美国梦),对知识产权的保护(将其写入宪法),早期宽松而相对合理的移民政策(吸引人才),战争的获利者(两次世界大战),以上是我结合读的一点点可怜的书加上自己观察和思考的结论。 看看历史学家们怎么说的吧,以下文字摘自《大国崛起》:--“1862年,就在南北战争期间,美国总统林肯签署了著名的《宅地法》,法案规定:成年美国公民只需交纳10美元的登记费,就可在西部获得160英亩的土地,耕种五年后就能够拥有这片土地的产权。这项法律,点燃了美国人到西部去创造未来的巨大热情。此后,成千上万的美国人以及来自各地的移民,开始大规模地进入这片区域,开辟这里的土地。” --“西进运动毫无疑问是美...

疯狂感恩节!!!

山姆大叔得了重感冒,全球都跟着吃药。。。 这个感恩节注定不平凡,有人在血拼中<A target=_blank href="http://news.163.com/08/1129/13/4RU1GDGJ0001121M.html">丢了命</A>,今天开车从Outlet回来时看到路上发生了追尾车祸,这个冬天。。。很寒冷! 这个Thank Giving,绝对是我这次美国之行最期待的节目了,我一定要Join这个大Party,所以在此之前可以说是做了整整一个月的准备,问了很多人的很多经验,这一天,终于来临啦! 太平洋时间11月28日,我12点10分起床(估计是太兴奋所致),跟宝贝聊了会,玩了会NeedForSpeed,临晨3点半出门,出门前也算全副武装,毛衣毛裤,厚厚的大衣,还有帽子,带上森海塞尔的耳机听歌+保暖:)步行到Circuit City,呵呵,希望是Early Bird,可是一到那发现前面保守估计已经有100多号Early Birds了:<IMG style="BORDER-RIGHT-WIDTH: 0px; DISPLAY: inline; BORDER-TOP-WIDTH: 0px; BORDER-BOTTOM-WIDTH: 0px; BORDER-LEFT-WIDTH: 0px" title=P1050662 border=0 al...

中美油价对比

美国,其实某些油站已经1.99了,我还是按大多数算:$2.19 / 1 Gallon ↓ 14.9577 RMB / 1 Gallon ↓ 14.9577 RMB / 3.785011355034升 3.95 RMB / 升 中国:5.35RMB / 升 此外,我们在国内还有N多其他费用,我就不说啥了。。。 国内也快征收汽油消费税了,以ZF一贯精明,抠门(仅对被统治阶级)的作风,我们庶民不仅不要做任何指望,反而做好准备暴风雨的来临,估计到时候又有一大批“砖家”前赴后继,以其“砖业”为政策大唱赞歌。

2008.11.2随笔

来西雅图三周了,日子过得一般般,想家! 工作上还算顺利,边上的人都不错,自己也算努力学习,毕竟之前这方面经验比较少,仅有理论认识,没有实践经验。通过实际观察,发现老美做事确实有些懒散,慢慢吞吞的,但我想,他们中的大部分都应该是只要做了,就要做得精,他们注重实效,不确定的东西不搞,这点国内的行业还嫩啊,老是想当然,拼死拼活的做,做出来了不见得是什么好东西,所谓没有金刚钻,不揽瓷器活,霸王硬上攻不仅是对自己身体的摧残,关键是。。能做得好吗?在做之前先扪心自问,答案是否或者有可能否的话,还是扎扎实实学习+请教,再来开工不迟。 上周去了趟快100年历史的西雅图市中心派克集市,目的就是去看看1971年全球第一家星巴克,买上杯咖啡(毕竟天天在MS里喝免费的,花几个钱算是弥补下吧:))。 从Google上查出的公交坐法从最后结果来看是不对D,我颇费了些周折。。总之一到就看到2家星巴克,那我当然是随便进一家问问看吧。排队到我的时候我问小姐哪里是第一家,她很热情,说直走,然后右柺,然后专门强调,Logo是灰色的,还拿出个纸杯,说跟这个纸杯上的Logo一样,把这个纸杯给你吧?我表示感谢并说不用了。然后去了一家零售店-Simple Seattle,

My Powerful PC!!!So Excited!!!

几经周折,我的超强DIY机器终于到了,这几乎就是我的梦想了,尽管连熬两夜赶项目(2天加起来睡了10个小时),周五下午已经是走路都走不稳了:),但当我抱着那个从NewEgg来的大箱子时我所有的疲劳和烦恼全都没了,6年了,我没换过台式机,实在厌烦了本本苗条的身材,平平的性能,我要Power!就像老美对70年代的肌肉车那种特殊的爱好,我对PC的审美观那就是Power!我自认为是个Geek,组装所有配件在保证性价比和够用就好的原则下,亲手打造一台主机的工作/游戏机,我乐此不疲! 百度百科上对Geek(极客)的解释:Geek也可能是电脑高手也可能不一定是电脑高手,不过大部分都对电脑有莫大的偏爱,他们可能会对一切新鲜玩意儿都弄来搞搞.Geek是新的精英亚文化群,是一群爱好新事物的、以技术为中心的、同时对社会怀有深刻不满的地下人类. 熟悉鄙人的人都知道,鄙人是个“反革命”。。。Stop。。。See here OK,正题!鄙人配置: Hardware Details Price CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80570E8400 - Retail $194.99 Motherboard ASUS P5K-E/WIFI-AP LGA 775...

19刀剪个头,13刀两包烟,5毛钱看阿德里亚诺!!!

后悔出来之前没把头发剪短,周日花19刀剪了个头,还是在Jac帮助之下找了Coupon(优惠券)之后,之前就听同事说他剪头花了25刀,恐怖啊!!!而我的头发实在是长得吓人了,呵呵,Jac说这边确实有人每次剪头都剪得很短,每年只剪两次以节省开支:)剪之前Jac担心我沟通有障碍所以观察了下发现有一个女的,他猜这女的是中国人,结果我们问她答曰不是,剪头时跟小姐聊天得知她来自夏威夷,我跟他描述我希望剪短点但要保证Cute^_^呵呵,她告诉我,我做的是MVP服务,他们这里最高端的,本来是24刀的因为那张礼券只要19刀,还有Massage(按摩),不过我拒绝了,一直不太喜欢,临结束时她问我要不要Gel,我没听过,但能猜到大概是发胶之类的东西,确认之后弄了一点,嘿嘿,精神多了!之后付了4块钱小费,共23刀,唉! 之后打算去超市买2包烟,可怜,一根烟都没有了。。。6月6号同事会帮我带一条,还有6天。。。唉,2包万宝路,13刀!抽不起啊!! 最最兴奋的事,周六巴西和加拿大在西雅图的QWEST体育场进行一场友谊赛。一开始知道这个消息是从Hot Deals Group,只知道小罗,卡卡,罗比尼奥,阿德里亚诺都会过来!有人在询问是否有便宜球票,我因为工作忙且认为球票不会便宜所以没有关注,知道周四Jac Forward给我一个Email,发现。。。MS所有员工包括我们这些Vendor,都有优惠,价格是。...

满脑子只想着震情,难以入睡,无法专心工作

标题便是我这几天的真实情况,每当我坐在电脑前,无论是在公司还是在家里,我唯一做的事情就是不断地点击阅读着一篇又一篇的文章,焦急,沉痛,内心在泣血。 今天早上起床的时候发现外面阳光明媚,天气预报说今天西雅图会有28摄氏度,果不其然。 脑子里空空的,昨日的疲惫似乎在睡眠中稀释了,我暗想今天还是好好工作吧,灾难发生了,活着的人应该尽其所能提供帮助,或者祈祷,祈福,于此同时,更应了解在大自然的灾害面前人类依旧非常渺小,所以更应珍惜眼前的生活,过好每一天,不虚度时光! 一边在往车站走着,一边想着,块到245车站,猛然发现公牌忘带了,没办法,只能回去拿。由于此事,我错过了定点的班车,大概是从这时起,我的心情就开始再次变得沉重起来。我步行到了40号楼,找前台小姐叫了辆Shuttle,小姐说754,8分钟,我感谢之后就坐在路边的椅子上等着。。。直到。。突然觉得不对劲,那个司机好像在问我!我一看,“哦!”754,都到了。赶紧上车,说声“Sorry!I was thinking about something:)”,司机师傅说没关系的,只是我们只能在这里等一分钟就得走,所以我看到你一个人坐那里猜是你订的车,我表示感谢并自己笑笑,唉!满脑子都是这件事! 转几张令我泪下的照片:<IMG style="BORDER-TOP-WIDTH: 0px; BORDER-LEFT-WIDTH: 0...

汶川!汶川!牵动着整个世界

今天已经是第四天了,发生在祖国汶川的巨大灾情牵动着亿万人的心,第一次听到这个消息是在美国时间12号下午3点多钟(国内13号清晨6点),我们这边的周一,我那天工作比较忙所以压根就没有看任何新闻,下午3点多同事Jac在MSNBC上看到中国四川发生了地震,他问我是否知道,我答曰没有,我立即打开新浪却看见一条条触目惊心的报道,天那,天那,从这时起我的脸上就感觉发烫,体内的血液在燃烧。我昨天想,这是我这辈子第一次离地震如此之近,就发生在我的祖国!这种同胞兄弟遇难的感觉这次是如此的强烈。   看到下面的文字我想每个有血有肉的中国人都会感觉震撼的!   温总理: 要不断努力把他们救出来,不惜采取任何手段,不惜任何代价。 总理电话里大喊,我不管你们怎么样,<FONT color=#ff0000>我只要这10万群众脱险</FONT>,这是命令。他把电话摔了 我就一句话,<FONT color=#ff0000>是人民在养你们</FONT>,你们自己看着办。     祝先生的捐款数让NHK电视台记者颇为惊讶,这也是当时收到的第一笔百万元捐款,超过了日本某个政党的捐赠额。而祝先生

来美国一个月的生活小结 (上)

一个月了,基本上都习惯了,衣食住行,文化,交流,觉得适应得还行吧,零零散散的想记录一下平时的所思所感。 食:首先当然是吃饭问题,民以食为天,饭吃不好那问题可是大大的!吃的最多附近的当属汉堡了,大口大口的,呵呵。想起第一次吃汉堡是90年在北京,我们一堆小屁孩一人发一个麦当劳的牛肉汉堡,我们都实在无法忍受两块“面包”中间的那“坨”肉饼,无论是视觉还是味觉都从心理上第一时间抵制了,总之大家都扔了,只吃“面包”和薯条。之后从不太厌恶变成现在的还有点喜欢,隔段时间也许还想啃上一个(比如上海的汉堡王鄙人就比较喜欢,呵呵),临走之前Monica说那个(叫什么来着的店,不记得了)有70块大洋的一个巨大汉堡,比较感兴趣的说,一直想去吃呢。。。那么来美国一个月后,我对汉堡的认识是更加深刻了,每天中午去微软的食堂,对我来讲基本上只有3.5种选择:1. 皮萨2. 汉堡3. 沙拉3.5 每天变换的汤 汤由于不能解决温饱问题所以算0.5个好了,皮萨最简单了,就躺在那,铲一片走人,直接买单(2刀),也是最便宜的了。汉堡呢就有很多选择,Turkey burger($3.10), Angus Burger($4.15),Blah Blah Burger(最多7刀,猪鸡鱼牛都有,名字太多太复杂不记得了),我老是吃Turkey burger,真可怜呵呵, ok,说下汉堡是怎么做成的,鄙人原来是不知道的。先跟厨...

价格上的天差地别!!!

这个牢骚不能不发!收入低,东西超贵。。。 再过1天就来美国1个月了, 资本主义真好啊,不谈啥高深的,也没那能力,咱老百姓一个,操心的是日子怎么过(民生),怎么过上殷实的日子,收入高点,东西便宜点,可支配收入相应提高,日子就会宽裕些,举几个美帝国主义的实例吧。 公元2008年5月8日,创新弄了个1 Day Sale(挥泪赔本甩卖,仅限今日),20刀买个2G的Zen! Best Buy看到的CD,为啥关注这过

人生中那些重要的第一次 - 塔科玛机场见闻

这个时候我已经坚持了十几个小时,人昏昏沉沉的,但是。。。要面对边境检查,还是得打起精神,这是第一次,所以没有任何经验,我心想:“别搞得折腾了半天挂在检察官手里让我回家,机票他报销。。”,呵呵。 在等待过边检的时候看到一张宣传图,上书:“Keep our doors open and nation secure.” 赞!!! 我的理解是: 我们欢迎人才!在保证国家安全的前提下! 不拘一格降人才! 在过去的一个多世纪里,美国宽松灵活的移民政策在很大程度上保证了这个国家领先于世界民族之林。 不过近几年呢,尤其是911之后,老大很受伤,变得相对谨慎。。。很多仁人志士对此颇有微词,比如<A href="http://tech.sina.com.cn/it/2007-03-08/08101406415.shtml" target=_blank>比尔盖茨</A>。 正思考着呢,轮到俺了。Check我的检察官是个黑人,问了些问题,现在只记得问有没有带食物,我回答没有,之前在飞机上韩国空姐给的单子上我也填的没有,我觉得我带过来的那一箱热干面应该不会伤害山姆大叔的农民伯伯吧:)我的邀请函上只有26天,我的PM让我要3个月,那么在检察官问我时间时我跟他说:请您给我3个月,因为培训已经延长了。他没说啥,就一个劲的在那里盖章,好多章要盖!大概有20分钟吧,ok了,看到同事已经在...

我的美国面签全过程

今天睡了个懒觉,9点多爬起来,然后乘2号线到南京西路梅陇镇广场,一去就发现好多人。。 我直接去了8楼,看到保安大哥忙得不亦乐乎,我跟他说我是办美商会商务签证的,他说让我下去到1楼2号口拿牌子,此时是12点,而我的面前预约单上写的是要在12:45之前,我赶紧告诉他这个情况,他说没有关系,一定要拿牌子,我猜可能是便于管理吧,便赶紧下去了,发现下面人更多了。。。看到有一列队是美商会的, 我就过去排了,这时有个“老大”(保安们这样称呼的)过来, 说我的包要去存,手机不能带进去,这个我之前是知道的,然后我问他:“请问在哪里存?”,他告诉我往前走10米,位置给我留着,ok,我有赶紧过去存包。呵呵,看到那边一个醒目的牌子上书着几个大字:“您办签证,我们看包”,真“体贴”,费用是10块中华大钱:) 等待5分钟后有位大哥让我们跟着他走,我是第一个,我便问他:“请问每天都是这么多人吗?”,答曰:“今天少了一半呢。。”,囧。。。 上去之后先安检,然后按指纹,然后就进入

小白和多多

小猫小白斗小白放下饭碗,轻轻的把猫放在双腿上。看着多多(小猫的名字)团团转地咬着自已的尾巴玩。小白满脸堆笑地一边骂道,笨蛋,这么费劲;一边用手拉起多多的尾巴就往多多嘴里送。小家伙不领情,张着爪子去挠小白。小白则赶紧放开手自卫的去拍猫爪。于是两个家伙就你一爪来我一拍地斗起来。 小猫抽烟记小白是个老烟民。吃完饭后一定非得抽上一支。和多多小斗一会后,摸出他甚爱的家乡烟-黄鹤楼往嘴里一叨。忽地嘴巴一抿,嘿嘿嘿地把烟儿拿下来就往多多嘴里塞。小家伙闻了闻,实在不喜欢烟草的味儿,拼命拧着脖子把头转开。无奈小白肉掌大而有力,把着多多的小脑袋不放。急得猫咪用爪子狠命抓小白。小白看它发急的样儿,收回肉掌悠悠地抽起烟来。还时不时地将烟喷到猫咪脸上,好让它也一起分享心爱的黄鹤楼。 慷慨赠袜小白有双臭脚,但他却不以为然。歪理是,男人脚不臭,那还像个男人吗?为了成全他做个男人,但又不至于让被窝臭哄哄,所以要求小白每晚睡觉前得洗脚。又到了小白洗脚的时候,脱下臭袜子,小白就放到多多的小脑袋瓜上,说来闻闻。多多举起两只小前爪抱着臭袜子,竟张开嘴巴咬起来了。这下小白可乐了,脱下另外一只袜子一起扔给多多,说你这么喜欢,我就送给你了,哈哈~~~唔,我可怜的多多!

My Love on Vim

My life with Vim I started learning Vim during Aug, 2011, the original motivation was trying to "get rid of my mouse while I am coding", I had no teacher but google, learnt it from the very hard way. From the beginning 2-3 months, honest speaking, I was less productive while using Vim comparing with IDEs, there were so many things I could do in second in IDE, for example: search/replace, formatting, re-factoring, folding, and so on, whereas I had to spent days in learning how to accomplish a simple task in Vim, that was really painful, but I never gave up!

WTF?IBM Lotus and Domino Server?

Technical tags: IBM, Domino, AIX, LotusScript, ODBC/JDBC, ADO, OLE DB, Assume we are now in Jurassic period, the technologies above are in Cambrian period, developers who has less than 4 years experience probably never heard about any of the above terminologies... No choice, I was dealing with them during the passes few weeks, I met ODBC as soon as I graduated while I was development ASP website using VBScript, but it was soon replaced by ADO, and after half a year I started studying .NET so I used ADO.NET, nowadays we usually talk to Entity Framework which abstracts ADO.NET interfaces...

Cache Reverse Proxy - Varnish

Introduction Varnish is an HTTP accelerator, the official page is: https://www.varnish-cache.org/. Varnish stands in front of the web application server to be a cache reverse proxy (also can be a load balancer), it can simply cache all the static resources in memory, and can also be powerfully configed using VCL (Varnish Configuration Language, a DSL for Varnish configuration) to cache dynamic content, in addition, Varnish implements ESI (Edge Side Include) standards to provide ability to cache static parts of the page.

Cache Reverse Proxy - nginx

Introduction On the homepage of nxing wiki, there used to be one sentence which really impressed my very much when I first time to take a look at it and learn it three years ago: Apache is like Microsoft Word, it has a million options but you only need six. Nginx does those six things, and it does five of them 50 times faster than Apache.  --Chris Lea

12 tips to boost RSpect and Cucumber

In our daily TDD/BDD work, we spent most of our time in test cases, we analyze requirements, write test case, run it and watch it fail, implement code to make the test pass, repeat the process "until money runs out". Thus the speed of running those test cases have significant impact on a team's performance, ! You can't tolerance writing a test case, waiting 1 minute finish; You can't tolerance CI finishes running all RSpec/Cucumber tests for half an hour! I can't! So I motivated to improve this!

Honored to Win CodeProject HTML5 competition

Three months ago, my article <HTML5 WebSocket In Essence> was honored to be named first prize in CodeProject HTML5 & CSS3 competion, the award was an Ipad2. To be very honest I was expecting to win a T-Shirt or a CP Mug, if I could get either on I would be really excited, so when I received the email congratulating me I was the winner, you can image how excited and happy I was at that time. However, the editor from CodeProject told me they were unable to ship the Ipad2 to China, they could give me equivalent money - $499.99, however after a very short consideration I decided to ta...

Make your HTML5 Video support all browsers

Introduction HTML5 video tag gave us the following advantages: No plugin required, directly play. Visible & controllable for Browser and search engine, not a "black box" such as Flash or SilverLight. Cross-platform, in theory all PC/mobile browsers as well as Ipad/Windows 8/Android tablet PC.  Downward compatibility. Which is very important, but W3C had made it simple and works, we can smoothly fall back to flash if the user agent does not recognize "<video>" tag. So it is simple and pretty cool! However, there is still issues within a not short period: the browser support ...

HTML is the new HTML5

Few days ago Ian Hickson wrote a blog: HTML is the new HTML5, he referred "we moved to a new development model", and comes with two major changes: The HTML specification will henceforth just be known as "HTML", with the URL http://whatwg.org/html. The WHATWG HTML spec now became "living standard", "It's more mature than any version of the HTML specification". I took a screenshot below: In a simple sentence: HTML is going to "unversioned model", according to this there is definitely a concern: OK, living standard? Does this mean the standard could be changed/updated/revised at anytime?...

Unique URL Pattern in Ajax Web Application

Implementation The key technology to achieve the ““Unique URL” goal could be summarized into two points: If t...

IP Address to Geolocation

Background Few months ago I found an interesting website: http://ipinfodb.com/, it provided API which could “translate” any IP Address into a geography location including City/Region/Country as well as latitude/longitude and time zone information, to invoke its API, a registered API key is required (which is free). Since beforehand I stored visitor’s IP Addresses into my own database, I decided to utilize InfoDB API to store visitor’s GEO locations. Just few days ago, I casually emitted an idea: summarize those GEO location records and display them on Google Map, hum, it is feasible:) So, ...

A complete Impersonation Demo in C#.NET

Under some scenarios we need impersonate another Windows account and do some work under that user’s session, for example: An enterprise ASP.NET web application provides server administrators’ ability to access the server under some specific privilege set; Server admin input their NT account information (domain\account + password) on the page, we need get WinNT Access Token and then impersonate this server user, so that we acquire its specific privilege and do the things ONLY THIS ACCOUNT CAN DO. We developed a Windows Service which needs internet access periodically, but a specific user ...

However, in the posts above they uses aspnet_regiis.exe and seems it doesn’t directly support app.config, if we want to encrypt app.config for Windows Form or WPF applications, while I tried use it to encrypt my app.config file, it generates a web.config which means my Winform definitely can’t use it, even...

这几天研究Url Rewrite:)

在开发这个自己用的Blog时,决定认真研究一下以前接触过的URL Rewrite,我见过类似这样的域名: xxx.com/Archive/2008/03/21/,一直不知道怎么实现的,正好借这次机会研究一下。 从前天开始就一直在努力,基本上是第一天差了大半天资料,<A href="http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms972974.aspx" target=_blank>这篇文章</A>写得非常详细,向作者致敬!第二天终于上手做出Demo,但有Bug,第三天解决了Bug,完美运行^_^ 其实简单点说,个人觉得对于ASP.NET开发者实现URL Rewrite基本有3种途径: 1. 修改IIS ISAPI扩展,例如把”.xx”交给aspnet_isapi.dll ISAPI 扩展,就成了这样:”xxx.htm?q=blah”,这样就是最简单直接的SEO,但由于我是虚拟主机所以我仅仅只在本地试了下,不知道精英科技的管理面板是否支持,我没有试。2. 修改WebConfig,添加
