ICRA is almost finished and so is the deadline. We still doing a last proofreading. However, there are a lots of problem in preparing a PDF. First, IEEE requires that all font is embedded. There are some problem in my Distiller, I can not make the .joboptions file from IEEE to work with my Distiller. It keep s saying that the font "Times-Roman" can not be found in the system. I change to GSView to convert my ps to pdf but still, the result pdf does not have "Times-Roman" embedded in.
Yeah, miss me? huh? Long time since last entry. I went to Japan for IROS presentation. (that's suck, though.) Anyway, I'm back, fully realised that the previous entry is still under construction. Today, our master posted a post-it with TO-DO on our machine. So, we have lots of thing to do in official. Hope that I do not fail any of them.
Ah, lots had happen around weekends. New idea came, and gone. Some interesting got proven, and later disproved. Work of ICRA still not completely done. Even right now, some theories still need rechecking. The implementation still not complete, Fu and Peam still working on the implementation. I, myself, do not finish the paper yet, even the draft one. There is a little hope for ICRA right now. But, as our teacher said, it is not the deadline yet, we have to keep working. Of course, gunbound took some time away from us, as usual, but we managed to play less of it. A little bit of victory?
Today and yesterday are days for proving. I and N~ Peam trying to proof the necessary and sufficient condition for regraspable between two parallel grasps. The process is quite fun, working with Peam and Fu on this subject really make research much more fun. Maybe that is what they called "atmosphere of research". However, if a proof does not come out, the world much be worse.
Just talk with Ai kong (burin) about staying at his apartment, my dear fat ขี้งอน old friend. I will stay with him on sat. 2/9 to wed. 6/9. Ai Kong, of course, request a sweet from sendai. Here is the page ขนม. Click on 萩の月 (hagi no tsuki) and that's it. The pictures look very delicious. Ah, my mind already fixed on eating at Japan, what a nice place for eating.
