Google Sites is good for personal wiki or homepage, good stuff.

Installed nvidia-settings package and Twinview works great with D620 and the external monitor. As well as the docking station, WOW~

FireFox 3.0.3 on Windows resolved the password cannot be saved problem for TwitterFox and Gmail Manager. No problem with OSX and Linux.

@firefox_answers TwitterFox 1.7 works with Firefox 3.0.2 on OS X/Ubuntu. But same ver not for win. Can FirefoxPortable be to blame.

Ubuntu 8.04 with Oracle Cisco VPN client, perfectly working now. Wow~ All done. Need to post the steps for others.

via Twitter Web Client

Ubuntu on D620 all set up including Cisco VPN. However 1 thing left, to setup twinview to work properly on the dock.

Got up early this morning. Took a look at inbox and something big happened. Great news and good job. BEA guys:)

Lightning for Thunderbird 0.9 and Sunbird 0.9 kick ass. Worth the upgrade.

@jaysimons Hey Jay, I use Confluence to build a team wiki for better collaboration and manage knowledge resources. I am not bad, thanks:)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jaysimons

It seems TwitterFox doesn't work well with Firefox 3.0.2, at least on Windows. Wait for an update.

via Twitter Web Client

Windows Explorer crashed 2 times today when I was copying. Bloody hell. Fortunately task manager was working and I started a new instance.

via Twitter Web Client

Firefox automatically upgrade to 3.0.2 in Ubuntu. I have to upgrade my OS X and Windows later on today.

via Twitter Web Client

Siebel is working under ies4linux. Bingo, no problem working under Linux. However, still better to have another OS X or Windows box, no VMs.

via Twitter Web Client

Confluence is really the best enterprise wiki product I have ever seen. Installed 2.8.2 on Ubuntu Server, kicks ass.

via Twitter Web Client

@mcannonbrookes I missed it. I should have kept an eye on your website. When would the next be? I would like to know more about Confluence.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mcannonbrookes

Another colleague is leaving. Bad news, but good for him. Chasing the Sun is good, good luck dude.

Out to boy some seafood. Try to cook for dinner. It could be of fun. Though I can't guarantee to taste.

via Twitter Web Client

I am confused by the new Facebook UI. I can't find my apps. Damn it, anyway, I am not addicted to it.

via Twitter Web Client

FoxTab is pretty cool. Including almost all Compiz Fusion tab switching effects. WOW~

Finally Friday. A horrible week ended. Counting the hours I worked overtime and wondering how much they r gonna pay me...

via Twitter Web Client

I have to say the Chinese clone of Twitter is pretty good, which is Jiwai.de.

via Twitter Web Client

In an internal training. Oracle Coherence.

via Twitter Web Client

Twitter for English, Jiwai for Chinese twitter. Jiwai.de.

Back from jogging. Keep working on the hot potatoes, or tomorrow it's gonna blow up. Anyway, I get paid for OT. Oops...

1 guy doing 3 guys workload. WTF is that? Bullshit!

Read something about the kernel_task of Mac OS X, the Mach microkernel stuff. Good to know the internals of Darwin, in fact BSD.

via Twitter Web Client

Mac OS X 10.5.5 update, 316MB. OMG!

@halv0112 Mark r u on a long holiday in Europe? Nice...

via Twitter Web Client in reply to halv0112

Did a cut instead of a copy, thunderbird local data folder gone. A backup saved my life:)

via Twitter Web Client

Compiz Fusion make me feel dizzy again. But too cool anyway. Just noticed it is built in in 8.04.Works perfect on D620 but I made a mistake

via Twitter Web Client

Using Hamachi to connect to my download box 8000km away running Ubuntu behind a router. It kicks ass. I don't need to forward port any more.

via Twitter Web Client

Tried Oracle JDeveloper 11g preview, it kicks ass actually. Make me think of JBuilder by Borland a few years ago. And Jdev seems to be free.

Start planning the trip to Shanghai. Booking flights and hotels all sort of stuff. Looking forward to seeing my family, long time...

Having lunch with peoplesoft support team. surprised to see so many Asian Chinese faces. wow. Big meal...

Cleared up my Google Reader Feeds, under 50 now. More efficient tags. Relaxed.

Dell mini 9 599 AU$ in Australia, 1 model available only. Why there is no Ubuntu? I don't need Windows. It could be 50 bucks cheaper...

I don't get the point why 'they' block Google Pages. Some of my buddies told me they can't access the site. It is the truth.

via Twitter Web Client

Work in text mode and feeling good. Open, free, that's the spirit of open source.

via Twitter Web Client

In an integration meeting.

via Twitter Web Client

@mcannonbrookes Thanks mate. Company wide we use confluence a lot. However, I may prefer free and opensource products. I will compare:)

I beat my brains out for the names of our twins...

Testing Mediawiki and Confluence on Ubuntu Server, trying to figure out which is better for team Wiki.

Heading out to pick up my domino's pizza for dinner. Junk food again. Tastes better than pizza hut anyway.

@jaysimons True, it is now one of my GTD tools in the stack. I don't need OneNote any more coz it is not cross platform.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jaysimons

The shopping center is crowded as expected. I hate it. Wet, crowded... Going to ask for a quote for new Macbook Pro and iPhone, for work:)

via Twitter Web Client

Driving out for lunch, sushi again. I reallu hate the god damn rain. I have to stay at home researching Ubuntu server and my migration.

via Twitter Web Client

@mcarges Congratulations, Mark! Good luck from the old BEA BID folks:)

Pidgin 2.5.1 fixed the defect of retrieving Y!M contact name details. Verified on Windows and Linux. Will wait for Adium to be fixed next.

via Twitter Web Client

Looking forward to the trip to Shanghai, my hometown. Counting down the days, missing family and my twins:)

via Twitter Web Client

Thursday, horrible traffic jam in shopping center. I spent 10 mins to get parked. Queued 5 mins @the sushi house.

via Twitter Web Client

Fetion is really good. I can send SMS to folks in China for free. They can reply and I can get it instantly. China Mobile does sth good.

@Fenng R u talking about kaixin001? It's absolutely junk! Even worse than xiaonei. I don't know why so many xxx addicted to this crap.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fenng

My Tre 650 just gave me an auto hard reset and all settings lost. I have nothing to say about it. Buy an iPhone 3G. Palm is dying for sure.

via Twitter Web Client

@jessehu @Fenng Chrome is just so so. It can't be a replacement for Firefox + addons for me. FF is exactly what I need for day2day work.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jessehu

Google's Chrome is ready to download. Will try it in the office.

via Twitter Web Client

I had too much for lunch today. Duck out for a while in the sun shine. enjoy the fresh air in national park beside the office.

@bucchere I am in the middle of installing WCI on Ubuntu Server + Oracle 10g XE. Working in Text mode is really joy:)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bucchere

Pidgin 2.5.1 released before I hit the bed. Upgrade tomorrow and check if the Y!M bug has been fixed. C ya later.

via Twitter Web Client

Spent 30 mins to skim thru The Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux, good book (especially part 3,4,5). Good for consolidating knowledge.

via Twitter Web Client

Go out for a walk after lunch, feeling full. Spring is coming but it's still freezing. come on, warm up.

via Twitter Web Client

@bucchere Yes, great minds think alike:) gCal + RTM + Evernote, plus pen and notebook. That's enough for me. But I still need an iphone.
