Poem forwarded by Duo Liang Lin to his couple of friends

What do you really want from us?
By Anonymous

When we were the Sick Man of Asia, We were called The Yellow Peril.
When we are billed to be the next Superpower, we are called The Threat.
When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to open markets.
When we embrace Free Trade, You blame us for taking away your jobs.
When we were falling apart, You marched in your troops and wanted your fair share.
When we tried to put the broken pieces back together again, Free Tibet
you screamed, It Was an Invasion!
When tried Communism, you hated us for being Communist.
When we embrace Capitalism, you hate us for being Capitalist.
When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet.
When we tried limiting our numbers, you said we abused human rights.
When we were poor, you thought we were dogs.
When we loan you cash, you blame us for your national debts.
When we build our industries, you call us Polluters.
When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming.
When we buy oil, you call it exploitation and genocide.
When you go to war for oil, you call it liberation.
When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you demanded rules of law.
When we uphold law and order against violence, you call it violating human rights.
When we were silent, you said you wanted us to have free speech.
When we are silent no more, you say we are brainwashed-xenophobics.
Why do you hate us so much, we asked.
No, you answered, we don’t hate you.
We don’t hate you either, But, do you understand us?
Of course we do, you said,We have AFP, CNN and BBC’s…
What do you really want from us?
Think hard first, then answer… Because you only get so many chances.
Enough is Enough, Enough Hypocrisy for This One World.
We want One World, One Dream, and Peace on Earth.
This Big Blue Earth is Big Enough for all of Us.

Echoing the Voice of the Voiceless
By Ann Lau

When Empress Dowager paid indemnity to the eight nations, the U.S. used it for the first Chinese students to study abroad.
When Sun Yat Sen came to the U.S. as a fugitive, the U.S. opened her arms.
When China was invaded by Imperial Japan, the U.S. sent in the Flying Tigers.
When China put up the bamboo curtain, the Chinese risked the shark infected sea to escape to Hong Kong and then to the west.
When the Dalai Lama called Mao as his Big Brother, it was not enough; religion is the opium of the people.
With Communism, the Chinese suffered the greatest famine in the history of mankind.
Again, the west welcomed those refugees.
When China was facing economic collapse, it was those Chinese who left China who first went back to establish commerce.
When China needed investments, the IMF came to its aid.
With Capitalism, corruption went rampant and the Chinese floating migrants became second class citizens in their own cities.
With a billion people, China has great potential; why is their government afraid of them?
Tell me why blind legal expert Chen Guangcheng was sentenced to jail when he helped villagers to file class action against forced abortion and sterilization?
Tell me why Wu Lihong, a farmer who became an environmentalist, was sentenced to jail when he tried to save Lake Tai?
Tell me why farmer Jiang Jinzhu called on outside China to help when his land and mushroom farm was illegally torn down?
Tell me why Hu Jia was sentenced to three and half years in jail when he wrote an article on the internet?
Tell me why attorney Teng Biao was kidnapped when he tried to help Hu Jia?
Tell me why Baixing’s editor-in-chief, Huang Liangtian was fired when he reported too many stories on corruption and official land grabs?
Tell me why Zeng Jinyan is in house arrest with her baby when she only blogged on the environment and AIDS?
Tell me why the petitioners in Beijing crowd around the western press and beg them to listen to their stories?
With their own fellow citizens unjustly treated, where is the outrage?
Tell me what top Chinese intellectuals said in their open letter on the Olympics and why they send their letter to the west?
Tell me what top Chinese intellectuals said in their open letter on the Tibet issue and why they send their letter to the west?
Why do Chinese in China call on the west to highlight their injustice?
Why do Chinese in China want the western press to report on their grievances?
Why do Chinese in China even went in front of the U.S. embassy to bring attention to their plights?
Could it be that their own government is not listening?
The west can turn a blind eye and close their ears to those Chinese people who pleaded for their help just as their own government have done.
There is little the west can do except to merely echo the voice of the voiceless.
If we even refuse to do that, then what kind of people are we?

Merry Christmas

愿所有的朋友,在新的一年中,依然能够找到心中那一份宁静,那一片净土~

送上一首我最喜爱的圣诞歌曲 – Silent Night by Billy Gilman,聊表心意… 圣诞快乐!

Silent Night

[歌词]

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Christ, the Savior is born
Christ, the Savior is born
Christ, the Savior is born

CIFM China Alpha

钊色推荐的基金一直定投到现在,年均获利都在15%~20%左右。虽然前不久上投出了丑闻,但也不影响定投的回报。所以说定投真是个好东西,唯一的弊端就是钱不够灵活,你得有耐心一直等到盈利再卖,而且你得有胆量越跌越买。

其实,说穿了,你只需要扔那儿不管他就行了,反正每个月自动扣钱。至于你设置每个月什么时候扣钱,见仁见智,也许没啥规律可循。

闲来无事,还是忍不住从Google财经拉了些上投阿尔法的数据下来,算了下每天的算术平均值(虽然有更复杂的算法,例如考虑不同月份的权重,或者根据过往数据,自动学习规律建模),但定投本来原理就在于平均,所以也许这样效果已经足够令人满意了。

从图上看来,每月1号买是个不错的选择,但定投经常会有时延,如果延到了3、4号,就霉了。我目前的25日发工资,26日买也不错,而且27,28的数据也还行,所以结论就是不用改了…:P

What’s wrong with BuzzCounter?

在自己的Blog上展示Buzz,以前一直用的BuzzCounter提供的服务,但BuzzCounter最近开始出问题, 始终显示很老的buzz,不能更新,加之他本来有的一些其他的问题,比如:1. 有广告贴;2. 贴子是通过他服务器中转的,而不是从客户浏览器直接去Google取的。

再加上Google Buzz API现在也RESTful了,更好的是,还支持JSONP,跨域的问题也解决了,所以还是觉得自己写一个比较好。

参见侧边栏和附件,Google ID在buzz.js里的第一行就可以设置。至于颜色、外观啥的,自己改改buzz.css吧。

当然,前提是你的Buzz是Public的。

Forget it…

等待华丽丽的Thinkpad W510+Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit之后,又华丽丽的等待VMWare Workstation 7的License。正版的算都齐了,结局居然还是Hackintosh了… 用到的所有东西都来自于这里。特别的:

  1. 一定要用UltraISO把DMG转成ISO;
  2. 我只用了Darwin.iso,没用Rebel EFI.iso;
  3. Display and Audio驱动都来自这里
  4. VMWare Tools来自Darwin.iso,直接Connect就行;
  5. AboutThisMac.pkg也很好用;

令人沮丧的是文件大小,好在连Apple速度很快:

  • 7.23G Snow Leopard 10.6
  • 1.04G System Update to 10.6.4
  • 2.94G iOS SDK + XCode

当然,除此之外,由于键盘的区别,还有很多需要tweak的地方,才能让你慢慢感到习惯…

[UPDATE]

如果想要获得最新的VMWare Tools,请直接下载最新的Trial版的VMWare Fusion。(http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/
然后用7-zip等打开DMG文件,最新的VMWare Tools在最新的darwin.iso里,具体路径在(还蛮难找的):
File:\VMware-Fusion-3.1.1-282344-light.dmg2.hfsVMware FusionInstall VMware Fusion.appContentsResourcesInstall VMware Fusion.mpkgContentsPackagescom.vmware.fusion.tools.darwin.pkgContentsArchive.pax.gzArchive.pax.LibraryApplication SupportVMware Fusionisoimagesdarwin.iso
注意:用于引导的darwin.iso请还是用老的,不要用这个新extract出来的,不然无法启动。这个新的darwin.iso只用于安装VMWare Tools。

最后还是不免俗的上涨图呗:

Better Javascript Syntax Support

近来需要看一段被混淆的Javascript,所有代码都挤在一行,很是难过。看那一屏的乱码,手动整理自然不可能,好在vim有自动格式化。

不过Vim Bundle自带的Syntax格式化出来,那叫一个惨不忍睹。网上搜了一下,将信将疑的下载了这个脚本至C:Program Files (x86)Vimvim73syntaxjavascript.vim,真的很是好用啊,呵呵

  1. Copy & Paste 拷贝粘贴
  2. :g/;/s//;r/g 以分号换行
  3. :g/{/s//r{r/g 以{换行
  4. :g/}/s//r}r/g 以}换行
  5. :set filetype=javascript 使用新下载的那个Syntax脚本文件
  6. gg=G 格式化
  7. :g/^$/d 删掉空行

打完收工,格式化得很是完美…
