My favorite band is always Queen. Three years ago, I was thrilled to known that The band's guitarist, Brian May, just got his PhD in astrophysics two weeks after my graduation procedure is filed. At that time, I can't contemplate how it was to be a rock star and to holds scientific PhD at the same time.

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.
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; SET CHARACTER SET 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.
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.
