The Street Illusionist

Posted on: Mon, 07/31/2006 - 11:50 By: dae

Yesterday someone post a youtube link on a forum I usually pay a visit. The video is about a street magic in Japan. The show is performed by an american-born with a perfect Japanese accent. I first saw this guy in a Japanese TV program when I were doing a research in Japan last two year. At that time I don't even know his name but his performance then is very mind blowing. The same feeling appear again in the youtube video. Thanks to youtube, I finally know his name.

Buying a new Notebook

No, not mine. Bo will make her trip to the state in a little more than a month from now. Undoubtly, we need a new Laptop. At first, she aimed for a low cost model from Compaq, the one that costs just less than THB 24,000, equipped by a Mobile Sempron. (That was the first time I realised that Sempron is also available in a mobile edition). After a long badger that we should push for a more recent model, she finally changed her mind, providing that I allow a little subsidy.

Manga, Game but no Camera

Posted on: Thu, 07/20/2006 - 09:43 By: dae

Of the three things defining [CP24] AccBLue, I have no proficiency nor passion in Camera. The heart of photography, the composition, is not a thing I am interesting. However, the other two, Manga and Game, are what I am fond of. Sadly, it is usually regarded as things-not-for-grown-up. Nevertheless, they are still dear to me. Two weeks ago, my lab friend were moving and thought that he has too much of "not-my-style" manga. He then brought some to our Lab, hoping that someone might find them interesting and then adopt them.

Pirates of the Caribbean

Yesterday I had a fortune of watching the Pirates of the Caribbean:Dead Man's Chest. If you have a chance, it is stronly recommended. I love the movie, especially on its humor and Dialog. That give me a strong urge to rewatch the first of the series (Curse of the Black Perl) again. Amongst others, this dialogue verbally standouts.

My Stupidity, overly confident on the Experiment.

Posted on: Sat, 07/08/2006 - 15:45 By: dae

Recently I have been busy writing a journal paper about the latest technique in checking the force closure. Since the start of Ph.D. I know that I am very illiterate on the mathematic. I do not have sufficient knowledge on Linear Algebra. Moreover, I am too negligent on the math. The danger is when you think you know something but actually you don't. I feel overconfident in something I should not. It is backfiring on me right now.

sshd on windows

Posted on: Thu, 07/06/2006 - 12:02 By: dae

The new project I am implementing is a content distribution system. The problem is that clients are deployed all over the country and the bandwidth is not a luxury we have, so remote desktop might not be possible. Moreover, maintenance of the project requires only editing of some text file, checking the log, etc. FTP would be enough but again, the network is inside a VPN that my very own machine cannot access directly. I must login to the main server first before I can access VPN. So the naive choice is sshd.

i18n in drupal.

After struggling for a long time. Finally, I have managed to get the internationalization module works as I want. the only problem is that I use the wrong block for accessing the translated page. We have to use Translation bock, not the Language Swithcer block, even though they look the same in in the appearance but it works totally different. Language switcher is just a languaeg swithcer of course. It does nothing except that letting a user select his/her prefered language and then display a content of that language only.

Drupal Access

Posted on: Sun, 07/02/2006 - 12:54 By: dae

After trying a lot of drupal access control module, the one that seems to suit my style is taxonomy access control lite (tac_lite), being able to set visibility for each vocabulary separately.

However, it does not support the entry that is already posted. I have to edit the database myself with

INSERT INTO drupal_node_access VALUES (xx,yy,'tac_lite',1,0,0);

where xx = node id and yy = group id (role id).
