Long time...

Yes, In the past year which I am not active at advogato, I discovered a few things :-

  1. SARS is the modern pandemic for us
  2. Java is *clean*, compared with my beloved PHP
  3. Hongkong is dead, for at least Software development and tourism.Thanks to the impotent Government
  4. Windows XP is my preferred desktop
After graduating with a biology degree, I will start off a Master in computer science immediately.I am sure I can sequeeze some times to contribute to some cool projects.
When Microsoft is not evil

A number of large corporations, including Microsoft Corp., General Electric Co. and Cisco Systems Inc., have stepped up to the plate in the wake of Tuesday's attacks in New York and Washington, pledging financial and technical assistance to help the recovery efforts across the country.

Microsoft said this week that it had donated $10 million in cash and technical services to support the relief and recovery efforts in New York and other areas affected by the tragic events of Sept. 11.



A moment of silence to all the victims of the accident.
WindowsXP Professional Edition

i have to admit that microsoft windowsXP GUI/Explorer/IE is way more advance than Gnome/* or KDE/Konqueror.

is it ok?
