I have been using Launchy for a long time. It is a very good keystroke launcher, a best tool for keyboard fanatic. However, it takes too much ram on my Win7 machine and keeps crashing constantly. After googling a while, I found [FARR]("The Ultimate Program for Keyboard Maniacs") (Find and Run Robot), a highly configurable, full-featured keystroke launcher which brands itself as "The Ultimate Program for Keyboard Maniacs". This one is less eye-candy than Launchy but definitely a tool for a fanatic.

Displaying TIS620 mysql on UTF8 page

Posted on: Thu, 06/02/2011 - 16:48 By: dae

The ghost from the past is my MySQL database encoded in tis620. Worse, the table and the column itself is labelled as iso-8859-1. Of course, if the web page is to be "viewed" as tis620, all I must to is to simply use

SET NAMES tis620;

In my php code. However, this is not the case because the page itself is utf8.

What comes to help me is iconv. In short, this is what I did.

Songs and Memories

Posted on: Mon, 09/06/2010 - 01:08 By: dae

On Sat, I attended TEDxKrungthep, an independent TED event organized by local TED enthusiasts and the final speaker is Bojo, a choir master. He led all audiences to sing Heal the World by Michael Jackson. The strange thing for me is that, years ago, this is one of songs that I had kept cassette (yes, there is a thing called tape cassette at that time) nearby all the time but somehow, I forgot to include it in my iPhone. It simply get lost in time.

I am not a student of history nor have ever wished to be one. I lack background knowledge so required to judiciously analyze current event. Moreover, I cannot faithfully say that I understand their desire, their hatred nor their anger. You can be assured that you won’t find any attempt in justifying nor rationalizing the course of current event here. I won’t bother condemn nor praise any decision nor anybody.
