Another embedded subset problem

Posted on: Thu, 02/22/2007 - 14:02 By: dae

In my latex installation, \bigcup produces pdf using F73 fonts!!!, it is Type 3 and I don't know how to make it become embedded subset.


The way to fix this problem is to use the option [cmex10] for the amsmath package. It is stated in the new version (1.7) of the IEEE transaction template by Michael Shell.

In short, just use


Another Interesting Stat from Google Webmaster Tools

Posted on: Sun, 02/18/2007 - 17:53 By: dae

From my last entry, I mentioned that I misspelled "my space" into "my spaec" and that made my blog appear in the Google search of "my spaec". At that time, my blog appeared at around the fifth position. However, I have rectified the misspell and wrote about it the last entry which obviously still contains the words "my spaec" (and so is this entry). When I checked with GWT again today, it turns out that my blog moves to the third place (try it).

An Inconvenient Truth

I had watched Super Size Me, the 2004 Oscar-nominated documentary film and March of the Penguins, the 2005 Oscar documentary. Both are good. However, today, I watched An Inconvenient Truth. Even though it does not awarded yet (right now it is nominated for 2006 Oscar), I like it more than the previous two.

The film features Al Gore giving a presentation about Global Warming. The presentation is very professional, (well, for Mac-fanatic, he uses Keynote) however, the best part lies in the content. The film presents very interesting fact about global warming, saying that it is happen, it is serious, and many key contributors of the problem still refuse to rectify the problem.

Google Analytics

There exists many web stat tools but the one I used is Google Analytic. It gives nice interesting stat for me. I get the rough idea on who has read my blog, and from where. Recently, my friends start using MyBlogLog. It is more specific, I can pin-point recent readers. For blogging, I don't write much and most of them are just my note to keep my memory intact, thus, not many visit my blog regularly.

Life is Beutiful

Isn't it? A nice satire is (again) from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans.

BTW, I have just found this in Prof. Rogaway's homepage.

Elephant can swim, really

Just watched Planet Earth, a BBC's HD TV program. The film is nice, at least in terms of picture quality. The first episode features, amongst other things, the journey of elephants in the middle Africa where rain causes lots of flood. The elephant has to walk pass the uprising lake and they took the camera under the water to record elephants in the water.
