Lesson Learnt

Lesson #1
When opinions, comments, suggestions, or advices are no longer needed, and treated as criticism, we had better shut up.
识时务者为俊杰

Lesson #2
纸上谈兵不如实地练兵

Lesson #3
天时不如地利,地利不如人和

Lesson #4
In the end of the day, it's only a matter of difference between being just a another something or stepping that one step further.
After all, 这种事情是相对,而不是绝对的, there's no right or wrong.
大家都喜欢黑色,那喜欢黑色的就是正常,而喜欢白色的便成了神经病。

这些古人们留下来的智慧真的让我敬佩万分…

我要潇洒的穿梭人世间
如行云,如流水
挥一挥衣袖,却不带走一片云彩
-----------------------------------------------------------------
分享一下很久很久以前读过的一篇满是废话却又带点哲理的文章。

白痴,笨蛋,神经病之差异
by 痞子蔡 jht

白痴也者,白无义,重点在痴这个字。
医学上有定义智商低于某一标准,谓之白痴,但这不在讨论范围内。
一般人习惯以聪不聪明,来判断白不白痴,这点可以接受。

笨蛋也者,蛋无义,重点在笨这个字。

一般认为白痴与笨蛋是同义词,我却不这么认为。
我认为应以是否具有智慧,来判断是否是笨蛋。

神经病也者,不正常的人是也。
而所谓正常与否,只是多寡之分而已,不代表对或错。
大家都喜欢黑色,那喜欢黑色的就是正常,而喜欢白色的便成了神经病。

我举几个例子说明:
(1)吴三桂引清兵入关,只为陈圆圆。 正常人不作这种事,所以他是神经病。
为了女人,背上不忠之名,引来唾骂,并不聪明,所以他也是白痴。
然而他断送的是朱姓江山,得到的是吴姓老婆,何损失之有?
而且降清后,贵为亲王,帮崇祯拼死拼活,顶多只能混到公侯而已。
以这点而论,他绝不是笨蛋。

(2)孙文十一次革命,正常人不会干,所以他是神经病。
冒着抄家灭族危险,四海奔波,换得劳累困苦的一生以及不到六十的寿命,并不聪明,所以也是白痴。
但他判断正确,认为非革命不足以救中国,先知卓见,可见他绝不是笨蛋。

(3)在十字路口上碰到黄灯,十个人中有八个人会冲过去,
所以剩下的那两人是神经病。
明明可以过却不过,还得多等几分钟,白白浪费时间,并不聪明,所以也是白痴。
但他们宁可牺牲数分钟,却少承担了一点发生意外的风险,
所失者寡,所得者众,所以他们反而不是笨蛋。

(4)一般男人喜欢外表美艳,身材窈窕的女孩,但jht却不这么认为,所以他是神经病。
明明忙得要死,后天还得开个研讨会,不准备论文,却post一些有的没的,很不聪明,所以是白痴。
但他认真灌Ladytalk板的水,也许有些美女心里一高兴,赏他一顿饭吃,岂不得偿所愿?
以此观之, jht也绝不会是笨蛋。

至于高低之分,神经病不用分,因为只代表不正常而已,无所谓高低。
而白痴与笨蛋孰高孰低?
笨蛋们当然认为笨蛋高,不然他们也不会被白痴们叫做笨蛋。

至于白痴们,根本不care谁高谁低,因为高低是相对的概念,不是绝对的。
大家都考20分,你考30分就很高;
大家都考90分,你考80分就很低。

我讲完了,好累哦!我真是白痴。

再见了, 小Ham

不久前伊伍伊柒的双雄 (aka 小Ham*)不幸病逝。
土葬的那晚,我把长得最好的一盆龙珠果苗移植到双雄的墓上。
那晚我也下决心,终有一天把我所有的龙珠果种到那。

不知过了多少个'七'的今天,乘着这几天下雨,泥土较湿较松软,
我终于把龙珠果苗全移到E4的防土崩堤上。

希望龙珠果能茁壮成长,早日结果
更希望多年以后回来龙珠果还在,不会在KE塞主,邀月玫瑰的一声令下被铲除…
伍柒双雄请你多保佑…

*p/s: 我自己给的,没询问过主人的意见

双雄的陵墓
但也未免太大了吧…
注: 那不是龙珠果花

Finally Finish Uploading

Finally finish uploading my tons of photos taken during exchange in Sweden, and especially those taken during my final Ultimate EUROam trip around the European continent.
Can finally delete the 20+ GB of photos off my harddisk.

Oh well.. dun think anyone would have the patience to go through each and everyone of them.
After all they were all taken around one year ago. =)
But I upload them here in case anyone wanna use them as a reference to plan their next trip.

Enjoy! My one whole exchange semester worth of joy & excitement.

Fixing My Printer: Canon PIXMA iP1000 Waste Ink Absorber Full

Bought this printer in my Year 1. Canon PIXMA iP1000
Had been getting responses from friends around that a lot of their iP1000 are spoilt recently.
After using mine for 3.5 years, recently it had been showing a lot of pop-ups saying the 'waste-ink absorber is almost full'
And today, it finally pop-up one saying:
"The waste ink absorber is full. contact the service center for replacement of the waste ink absorber"
No matter how dry I clean it, it just won't allow me to print.

I prowl the web, and there are many helpful souls out there who faced the same situation before and are willing to share their experience.
Many suggested sending it to the Canon Service Center. (I might as well buy a new one..)
Some say remove the cover, then dismantle and clean the waste-ink absorber (I tried already la...)

Buried under the many suggestions of physical steps to solve the problem,
I finally come across this forum which says 'the problem can be solved just by resetting the counter'

4 step to Reset waste ink tank counter CANON PIXMA iP 1000
STEP 1:- Disconnect printer from AC power
STEP 2:- Press and HOLD the POWER button, and connect printer to AC power
STEP 3:- release the the POWER button
STEP 4:- Press the POWER button again

Taken from http://forum.lowyat.net/topic/380353

And guess what!
IT WORKS!!

So much for the hassle of cleaning the printer..

Fixed it for the time being..
Hope this will last me a few more years. =)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some software recommended by some other forums that allow one to reset the various counters built into the printer.

Here's how to really clean the Waste Ink Absorber physically. I consolidated them from a few websites into this word document.

But I think the one we prepared for Dry Run look much better. =P
Many thanks to those who were present to make this 捞鱼生 a memorable one
Even more thanks to those who insisted that this 捞鱼生 was to be carried out in E712. =)
Thank you so much for sparing me from mopping the floor.
