侏罗纪公园!

恕我童年枉度,这部关于复活恐龙和人龙斗的片子我是第一次看。不过3D的妙处,确实在此种动作剧烈和景深参差的电影中,才能被体现的淋漓透彻。另一例子如《阿凡达》。

内容我就不总结了,以防制造笑料,毕竟还不知后续剧情(我就只等3D了)。主要总结各位痴人之梦语如下,仅供娱己。

一、科学家很危险,特别是狂热型的。当然尤其是搞生物和物理的一一此影片在验证前者,金三世的小朝廷正在验证后者。科学加政治是毁灭。

一、码工不可靠,尤其胖子码工。人家需要花钱畜油,你当老板的让人家总差钱是要把人逼成反派的。

一、戴墨镜的爱耍流氓。那个试验为名搞亲密接触的家伙,当着人家老公求交往。不过这家伙相对于那个倔强的老头还是有点科学良知的。

一、律师招人厌,也最没节操。坐在马桶上 死,是不是剧组为迎合观众的深度发泄和调侃。就像骂人“生孩子没屁眼”,这个是“死在马桶上”。

一、科学家很现世,特别是看到子funding 。对于在沙地里挖恐龙的主,钱比啥的风力都大。

一、话多的熊孩子是美剧的黄金导线;你觉的可有可无又控场的角色,如挖恐龙的夫妇,铁定的英雄好汉。主人英雄主义横行乃王道。

一、恐龙也有素食主义者的,它们可爱温驯。

海风中骑行:Manhattan Waterfront Greenway

弄到手头这辆自行车之后,心里就一直痒着要牵出去溜溜。网上查到这个Greenway 之后,忍不住激动,拉着车就出发了!(哥也是有车的人啦!哈哈哈)

按官方的说法,这条Greenway 全长32 Miles (约51.2 公里)。西边沿Hudson River 一直蜿蜒至Battery Park, 远眺自由女神后,折向东北,继而继续蜿蜒前行,经Manhattan Bridge, Willamburg Bridge, 联合国, 至Harlem River 上游。

我从West 103 街的入口,取道Riverside Park。时值下午3点左右,众多的New Yorkers在公园里玩弄时光:跑步的人最多好像,然后慢性散步的,脱了上衣晒太阳的,轮滑的,当然也有谈请说爱的。哥关注玩Soccer的小朋友们

从一座天桥下穿过后,Hudsen River已尽在眼前。来去匆匆的跑步的和骑行者,点缀着这座都市的一个典型周末。河风,在单车旁拍打,渗透,直至心灵。好清爽的下午!河上的泛舟者,伴着偶尔的帆船,让人们诉说风中点点惺味的来由。

Battery Problem with Nikon Coolpix L100

Nikon Coolpix L100 is a compact Megazoom digital camera, coming with 15x optical zooming capacity and wide view angle – ideal for amateur photo-takers like me . The price is also not bad, at about $400 Singapore dollars when I bought one in 2009. The only pitfall is with its batteries: at the outset, it simply doesn’t accept rechargeable batteries, such as the typical Ni-MH’s – even you’re not a doctrine environmentalist, it may bother you a lot whenever you have to head for stores for batteries.

In fact, Nikon has added in rechargeable support not long after this camera was released. You can follow these steps to get your L100 live well with the rechargeable:

  1. Firmware Version. Press the MENU botton, and go to Set Up –> Firmware version. If the firmware is COOLPIX L100 Ver.1.0, you will need to update your firmware to V1.1. following these instructions (Coolpix L100 1.1 firmware update from Nikon website).
  2. Battery Type. After the updating, one has to select Set up –> Battery type –> COOLPIX (Ni-MH) to enable this lovely feature.

Now you should be able to power your L100 with your rechargeable batteries (and also still be able to use the disposable)!

Finals, QE and Ahead

 

I’m finished with my finals, after interrupted study and broken rest time for several days — you must pay afterwards even with unmindful procrastination on the move. Time-management

Qualification Exam is ahead within two plus weeks. It’s the time to get refreshed my mind with the concepts of circuits, Fourier transformation, registers, and bit error probability, pretty everything a typical electrical engineering graduate needs to know. Yuh… another fighting! Of course the words your professor would often spend on this issue is ” make sure you pass, but not spend too much time!”. It’s an interesting balance a graduate student most likely always tries to strike… 

Visits to this blog keep roll up, even after my absence in the past few months. I’m pleased to be noticed of the 20,000 hits by the system. I’ve decided to put reasonable amount of time in future to update this blog with more technical expositions and discussions. This would considerably improve my ability to understand technical materials, which I would need to sharpen as soon as possible. 

I was just having a Christmas dinner with John and one master student. It’s pretty fun! We consumed some 1.5 bottles of red wines. And John was asking one theorem for each bottle we had for next semester, jokingly …
