實在太熱了

這台從未熱當的電腦竟然熱當了
只好開冷氣了

題外話,上次說要重灌這台成為完全的Linux,沒有Windows在上面
果然第二天就動手了
用到今天已經有五天了吧
我非常滿意他的表現。

過程中的想法

最近我開始追趕寫故事的進度
七月底一個比賽會截止。我回來放了三星期的假以後才猛然想起來這個是我要參加的。
我還沒搞定!
我在期末的時候發現,文字的使用上有些表達方式是我想作卻作不到的
比如我想要讓這個橋段,或整個故事充滿明亮快樂興奮緊湊的節奏
那我一定要少用一些形容詞、多用動詞

形容詞用的越多,場景移動改變的速度就越慢,不過場景就越清楚真實,越像眺望或好好端詳周遭世界的景象。
反之,動詞運用的越多,整個焦點就會集中在角色互動上、他們的想法或動作、緊張或想法上衝刺的感受。
特別是對話,
我從the catcher in the Rye 原文小說中學到的是,
如果可能的話,把焦點放在對話上,大量使用對話
這樣就能達到緊張的效果、讓讀者能緊貼著主角的思緒

不過文字和影片畢竟還是有差距
我想呈現一些動畫或是電影裡常用的運鏡手法
但文字上很難表現出來
一方面我必須先確認我到底是在寫腳本(拍電影用?畫成動畫用?)
還是劇本?
還是小說?
還是短劇?短篇故事?中篇故事?
想表達的對象是誰?小孩?大人?

這些是非常跳躍的問題,因為我一開始就是採取混合式的策略
意思是:我有時候這段是想給小孩看,下段卻是以大人為對象
有時候我是在寫動畫形式的腳本,有詳細的畫面運作說明,
有時候卻是小說式的對話
更多時候我本人是希望表達成卡通常見的op ed形式
或是有那種能吸引人看五分鐘不轉台的獨特氛圍
那種明快的節奏

所以這讓一個故事變得表達上非常不統一
風格也是。
這些在自娛娛人上是還好,但要拿出去參加比賽就差得遠了
我並不是追求評審或大眾的口味去做的,
這些創作最開始的動力都是為了把我腦袋裡面過剩的天然想法寫下來而做的
我想看看整個故事,我有很多故事在大腦裡,
我好像裝了一個天線在頭上,一直不停接收到外星球來的電波,那些故事其實是遠方發生的真實事件,我只是感知到了,所以寫下來。角色們的感受我也感受到了,他們真希望這個宇宙中也有人能指引他們未來的路。
我不是他們等待的人,我是和他們一樣處境的人。

在大腦中感知到是一回事,但寫下來又是另一回事。
我知道這些故事很精彩,但是寫的時候並不總是順利。

New bug in Google Chrome on Linux


I saw my Google home page in this way.
I was really surprised and I really want to laugh loudly.

This is so cute and so funny!
After I restart Google Chrome, it never appears again.

Samller is faster, and safer too

This post is from Google Chromiium Blog

I agree with their argument.
I really like this silent, small and smooth updates.
They just came in your computer silently almost every day.
Firefox really should learn this way to update their browser.

邁向Linux潔癖者之路

如果要說Linux比Windows優秀在哪裡
我會說從很多小地方都看得出來他用心先進的設計
我用的是Gnome的環境。
比如檔案管理員是有分頁設計的,類似瀏覽器。
這是很基本又很好用的功能,但Windows上面預設竟然沒這種東西,只是打開幾個檔案夾就需要好幾個檔案管理員。這真是太荒謬、太可笑了。
另外,如果同時複製或轉移好幾個檔案
他的操作動作也是一起顯示在一個小視窗裡。

其他地方像是:Windows的記事本沒有分頁設計,遜爆了。
Windows的msn只會一直干擾你的工作環境和分散注意力。
Linux幾乎所有的程式都可以縮小到系統列且有狀況也不會很雞婆的彈出系統列之外。

我正在考慮是否要把這台電腦只安裝Linux,沒有Windows的存在。
有幾個原因讓我越來越少開進Windows作業。
其中一個就是:每次進去就叫我要更新防毒軟體,很煩。
另外Linux下比較沒有甚饃需要磁碟重組這種問題。
這是一大好處啊!
現在我的磁碟分割還是對Linux很苛刻。
只有給他7GB而已。不過和Win共同管理了本機最大的分割。所有檔案也都放那裡。
真想要整塊硬碟都只有這個OS而已。

目前還非得使用Windows的程式剩下不多。
像是emule、iTunes、Mp3tag這些。
Linux上面還沒有好的對應解決方案,或是轉移方案。
每次壓縮檔或mp3要編輯id3都很麻煩,一堆亂碼。
目前我還是都先在別台電腦上在Windows處理好才能移過來。
不過已經慢慢接近當初要完全轉換到Linux的境界了。
重灌真的很麻煩,不管是Linux還是Windows,我真不敢想像這種事情。
Linux重灌手續比較簡單一些。

Princess Mononoke theme song English version

I found this on youtube.
This guy also made mp3 file for people to download.
Just go to his blog and you will find the download links.

Princess Mononoke is my favorite movie of all time.
The wildness of princess Mononoke really appeals to me.

Conncetion

Each of us is connected in some ways.
We seldom notice the fact that all of us are connected.

Even when some of us have gone to distant lands, we still connect with other people in the world.
So don't think you're isolated.
Don't feel you're nobody.
Before you make any decision, please think about how others will be influenced.
We are connected
By some unknown will.

We are one entity.

太空人是個寂寞又充實的職業

我想像他們一樣
能夠遠離人群、有著安全距離。
又緊湊充實的活著。

走遠一點,能看得更多。
學習過太空人的生活也許不錯。

又掛彩了~=_=

站廚房就算只有煮茶煮珍珠還是很容易燙傷

真討厭



也真是禍不單行

前一天才 曬傷

我的大腿呀~要變色了

太陽實在是太大了

防曬乳擦不夠

本想照下來但腿太粗不想照所以就算了

很久沒出遠門了

所以太粗心了

跟一群瘋子用機車到苗栗

坐的屁股都痛了還曬傷

現在是有點後悔跟了...

煩吶~



燙傷不好好處理會留疤的

之前的就留了淡淡的疤

要消掉還得花一番功夫

曬傷又燙傷

難道我要去拜火神了

哪裡惹到祂了>"<



最後再來一張兒子的照片好了

無題好了

或許這就是我很少再寫網誌的原因吧

發現了往往開了編輯的頁面

卻不知該打些什麼字

為什麼呢?

我仍然找不到答案

或許我以為我找到可以分享的人

所以不用在這發勞騷了?

可是我卻仍然沒有傾訴的地方阿...

卻又忘了怎麼打成字

還是我的腦袋已經空了?

在這日覆一日的學校生活中

遲疑的做著每一件事

興趣早已不知消失到哪去了

是不是一種錯誤

這一切的一切

卻連後悔也來不及了

如果一切能重來...

這個念頭本身就不該出現的

因為不可能的事想了也是多餘

卻也只會令人更傷神



晚安

回不去的世界

My kid sister wants a fun summer vocatoin

She wants to go to some playgrounds.
She is 11 years old.

So she searched several museums and playgrounds on the internet.
I show her how to paste the address of a playground into the Google Map.
Then all you have to do is to type in the address of your home.
Then Google Map will tell you how to reach there.
By taking a bus, driving a car, or by exercising your own feet.

Then she found all the playgrounds are so far away and the tickets are so expensive. (over 500ntd)
So she's quite depressed.
She has been asking me to take her to some playgrounds,
but now she realizes the distance and the tickets are not the easy things to deal with.

Then I walked away for a while. I got to do something else.
When I returned, I saw she had left the search result on the screen of Firefox browser.
She left two tabs on it and went to bed.

She searched the "Children's museum of Taipei" on Google.
Sadly, this museum was closed.
We didn't know that.
I think she must have been heartbroken when she founds out the truth.

Another tab was the Google Map.
She had typed in keywords "playground" (遊樂園)
She also gave the address of our home,
just like what I had shown her only once.
Google Map gave her a route to a playground.
It's an aquarium. 台北市士林區基河路128號 (台北海洋生活館)

I was surprised that she could learn it all so fast.
But the aquarium had been closed for years, too.

I thought I ought to take her to some places this summer vocation.
Last summer I took her to Taipei Astronomical Museum.
She really like it. She's a fan of astronomy.
But I have no idea where else I could take her to play this summer.

Anyone got any idea or suggestion? Please let me know.

Reading

I am reading the Catcher in the Rye.
I remember a female English teacher in the NTUT.
She was damn lousy. She always talks about her daughter and her husband.
She always says her husband was graduated from CK senior high, and how smart a person he is. How much he had got in the IQ test.
She always talks about these staff in class, and she probably thought this would make people think she's smart too.
Damn her, shit.
She always talks about her damn smart daughter.
She always says her daughter had started to read English novels since she was in kindergarten. She can finished Tolkien's the Lord of the Ring series by her self.

She's damn annoying, she's never a good teacher, but a big bastard.
She always makes herself a pride person by telling the glory of her husband and her daughter. They seems to make her the wisest woman in the world.
Damn her. Damn, I couldn't imagine such a teacher would be there in the world. I mean it, really.
She could not at least teach anything useful.
The way she looks at everyone is irony. She must think all of the students are morons. Yes, I had to admit all of us are morons except me.
I hate a teacher who always stands proudly and speaks nothing but rubbish.
I really want to wipe away her face from my mind.

我的床又重新變成一個堡壘了

我的床又重新變成一個堡壘了,有著由書堆起來的外城牆。
一切都跟四、五年前一樣。

我找到了一些19歲時寫的日記,寫在筆記本上面的。
有些年代更早,大概是17歲高二時寫的。
我打算近期整理出來寫成電子檔案。
看看自己長進了多少。
這些筆記本其實是我歸類收好的,因為不知道他們能幹甚麼,只好統統放在一起。
等到未來再作決定。

我甚至還意外找到小學時期的筆記本,不過上面只畫了一隻腕龍。
我照著恐龍圖鑑上面畫的,畫得很像。

Linux的核心

我想Linux的核心不夠好。
現在是平均分配的關係,但實際上使用,有些程式應該有更多的資源。
我看到有個教人轉換的RealTime核心的,說是比較適合一般桌面使用者。
不過我不敢貿然轉換,現在我還有一些問題需要解決。
比如輸入法問題,我裝了SCIM,輸入框消失的問題解決了。
而且新酷音的確比詞音好用多了。
不過原先gcin裡面的日文輸入法我要怎麼拿出來用?
現在這台電腦裡面gcin和scim都有了。

我說Linux核心的問題,資源分配的問題。
就是比如我在打字、同時播放音樂,但我不希望音樂會因為我開啟文件或甚饃的,而中斷幾秒這種情況。
這在資源分配上絕對需要改進改進
也許是因為電腦的cpu老舊,但我相信軟體這部份是可以改進的。

腸胃型的感冒

我得的是腸胃型的感冒
現在我就是因為腸胃痛的受不了而不能睡覺,所以才在這裡打字。(現在是午夜一點)
其實我剛才是在看小說的。
我在看麥田捕手。原文的讀起來真有一種快感,我一年多前看過中文譯本,翻得很好很流利,把那種口頭禪對翻的很合當流暢。原文的我看的時候邊看邊想如果是我,我會怎麼翻譯這個髒話。
看來我的詞彙還是太少了,我指的是中文的,因為用來用去的髒字還是那幾個。
根本無法跟上原本小說裡的那種豐富流暢。

我不知道還要多久才會好,沒想到腸胃型的感冒這麼痛苦。
每天每時每刻都頭痛的受不了,好像發燒一樣發熱發脹,可是體溫計並沒有顯示發燒。
肚子又漲又不舒服,餓的時候因為腸胃炎只能吃白麵包喝水,不飽。
稍微嘴饞吃多一些又開始不舒服。
渾身酸痛,喉嚨痛。
腸胃痛的感覺很像想跑廁所,但其實並沒有。
就這樣一直痛讓我睡不著。
大概在我搬回家之前我就已經感冒而不自知了吧。
真可惡。

The Call of the Wild

A few days ago I went buying some English books.
I got the coupon from wining a compositon contest.
It's about 1000 NTD dollars, so it's not much.
I have to use it before the end of summer vocation or it will be useless.

I bought three comic books, Robinson Crusoe, and The Little Prince.
Sure they are all in simple English. I bought them for my younger brothers and sisiter.
I also bought English novels: The Call of the Wild, The Da Vinci Code, The Alchemsit, and the Cathcer in the Rye. They took about another 650 NTD since I got another discount card. So it's quite cheap.

I had finished The Call of the Wild in the first day. It's a shorten version from the original one.
I like the story very much. I think I should get an original version.
A Japanese animatoin Wolf's Rain is probably influenced by this novel.
They got similar spirit in some way.



The Da Vinci Code is completely new to me. Other books I had finished reading their Chinese version before. But I adore them so much so I took the chance to buy the English version.

I love the ending song of Wolf's rain. It's called "Gravity".
Enjoy it.




Getting ready for the tour

My brother and I are getting ready for the bike tour around Taiwan.
So we practiced biking on the road near my home.
But I found it uncomfortable and dangerous to bike in a city road, where buses and cars rushing by your side.

I got extreme headache that afternoon while we are riding in the city.
The exhaust of the cars made me pretty sick.
I am going to solve this problem orelse we can't leave the city.
I had draw a route to the northen side of Danshui river.
We will start from there and make a clockwise tour around Taiwan.

I have to draw these routes on the Google Map. But it's not easy.
Although I am having my summer vocation, I feel like having a serious sickness.
My body and my mind are exhausted.
I got a fever a few days ago and I don't even know how it came to me.
I must exercise my body and mind. Keep myself in the best status.

If everything is alright, we will launch near August 15.
That's the only possible schedule for my brother.
Although I prefer to start the journey at early July.
