being silent for while, am actually isolating myself to do more java programming (duh!) and also explore this wonder full tool - Eclipse.

it does make learning and programming much simpler and interesting, so i think i would stick with it a little. found this article from ibm, even you can get a chinese version of the article... much anticipated for myself is the php-plugin PHPeclipse is rather cool, since then i can do my php stuffs on eclipse. no, not a must, just syok-syok only :) i still prefer vim :)

incidentally, there is another eclipse that is unfortunately discontinued. did not read through much, but guess seeing a discontinued project does bring my mood down a little.. thinking "what a waste" :)

quote of the day
Wrote this somewhere in another mailing list:
best thing about human is that they don't possess the capability of "Undo" (such as Microsoft Word) but instead a better and flexible function "Improve" which Microsoft Word would need to consider in its next 10 versions (or perhaps a few versions earlier).

did you ever think about the possibilities to reboot "fast"?

looking at the article here describes how one can make use of kexec to do the job. if you have got bored of waiting for reboot (when must do so) perhaps this tool will be of good help.

oh ya, kexec runs only on the 386 platform and linux, nope, no windows 9x/2k/XP/whatsoever... :)

got this from a friend.. found it pretty, interesting.

Lesson Three
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm it was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Management Lesson -
(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
(3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!

how much can we learn from this story i wonder? :)

got a news from a friend, telling me about another linux distro that claims to work well with Windows apps and integration. first came to my mind was Lindows which apparently now is known as Linspire (stated in the homepage), but decided to take a look at this new (to me at least) guy Ignalum.

from the site looks nothing new, but from the features it is to me great news since their new releaes would be a FC1 based system, with many promising stuffs added. One great thing i would love to try is the out-of-the box direct integration with a Windows network with Active Directory i presume... that i have done since the release of Samba 3 alpha, but a working integration of Openldap with Active Directory would be a good news to me :) hmm, better keep an eye on this fella.

anyone tried this? mail me your feedback please? :)

hopped shortly to lcf's site and read what he posted about Sasser, the new kids on the block for "clever" and "automatic" virus award from me. did not think such things is bringing endless problem to the users,but after reading his blog, the question comes:

"when would linux viruses go bizzarre and bring linux users to the same situation as windows users?"

something to ponder on i guess....
