sye, a firewall is effective not because it provides you proof of absolute security.

me not using your proxy does not mean i "take it for granted." thanks for your proxy, btw. my struggle is not with the firewall but with you, imho. ;)

the shaoshan article is crap. i'd like to discuss it point-by-point with you in email, if you want to.

abstract < 100 words.

keywords < 6.

paper < 25 pages.

a blog post < a few paragraphs. otherwise you should make it an essay and put an abstract on your blog.

they are not rules of writers.

they are habits of readers. unless you have a big name, readers will ignore you.

a wonderful scim-anthy howto.

unstable alert. :)

(i) nvidia's 7676 (latest) does not compile with linux-image-2.6.14-1-686

(ii) gnome-panel is useless. applets take ages to appear on the panel. and i dare not click on 'em cause that will freeze the desktop.

(iii) scim-m17n still not installable. i do not know how i can make scim work with anthy so i can input japanese.

tango project. that's creativity. a relief. numerous window managers were made to make us think there's no room for enhancement. now we see there still things to work on. we may not agree on the exact details, though. ;)

grep-dctrl. this tool is great for searching information on debian packages. personally, i find those browsing tools like aptitude are horrible time sink. maybe just for a debian junk like me. :)

on a side note, the bleeding edge of unstable is in trouble now: (i) acroread cannot work; (ii) openoffice cannot work; (iii) scim cannot input japanese. be warned. :)
