椅子太低,要仰头看屛幕的样子可以叫 “狐獴坐" meerkat-style (一笑)。

我的屛幕(手提电脑)位置没有与眼部平衡,所以向下看的时间居多,导致经常乌龟坐式。看来有需要将电脑垫高一点了。

lightweight vs precision Dec 19, 2014

QHE, that's pretty funny. I appreciate the humor.

The styluses I ordered arrived, but they still don't solve my problem. The ones I got are made by Rocketfish. Looking at the tip design of the styluses, they're rubbery and pretty sizable. Suddenly I realized that to generate enough capacitance, you'd need a large enough contact area.

As I mentioned before, one of the main activities I do online is read the news on the CNN website. However, their US edition homepage is so full of info you cannot zoom in due to the limitation of a 9.7" screen. Without being able to zoom in, the news headlines are so tiny and crammed together that it's hard to pinpoint and tap on the desired news item.



http://www.cnn.com/2011/TECH/mobile/05/27/ipad.usability.gahran/

NNG brought in 16 people with at least two months' experience using the iPad and systematically tested how they interacted with 26 iPad apps and six Web sites.

Here's what they learned, based on users' feedback, preferences and complaints:

Touchable areas are often too small, too close, not easy enough to discern.

Often, text content is big enough to read, but links in the text are too small to tap easily. Similarly, sites and apps that have too many touchable areas too close together increase the risk of touching the wrong one.

This leads to navigational accidents, which can be especially vexing in iPad apps that lack a "back" button. Also, many touchable areas don't look obviously touchable, so users tend to miss them.



Oh well. I guess there's always a tradeoff.

“A Christmas Carol” Dec 19, 2014

Today is Friday, December 19, the 353rd day of 2014; 12 days left in the year.


On 19 December 1843, “A Christmas Carol”, by Charles Dickens, was first published in London by Chapman & Hall .

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Christmas_Carol



The book was written at a time when the British were examining and exploring Christmas traditions from the past as well as new customs such as Christmas cards and Christmas trees. Carol singing took a new lease on life during this time. Dickens' sources for the tale appear to be many and varied, but are, principally, the humiliating experiences of his childhood, his sympathy for the poor, and various Christmas stories and fairy tales.

Dickens' Carol was one of the greatest influences in rejuvenating the old Christmas traditions of England, but, while it brings to the reader images of light, joy, warmth and life, it also brings strong and unforgettable images of darkness, despair, coldness, sadness, and death. Scrooge himself is the embodiment of winter, and, just as winter is followed by spring and the renewal of life, so too is Scrooge's cold, pinched heart restored to the innocent goodwill he had known in his childhood and youth. A Christmas Carol remains popular—having never been out of print—and has been adapted many times to film, stage, opera, and other media.

圣诞节 2014 Dec 20, 2014

今日是圣诞节前的最后一个周末。

离开圣诞节只有五天。由于今年特别多商店百货公司进行大减价、大倾销,伦敦市面一片繁荣,路上人群熙来攘往,各人手上拿著大包小包的礼物,节日气氛非常浓厚,很是热闹。

很多上班族都从下星期一开始拿假期过圣诞,一直到新年后才回来。所以过去一周大家都带著期待放假的心情上班 (难怪会有电邮回复延误情况出现)。前几天我有机会入乡随俗,与一些北欧朋友在伦敦桥 London Bridge 附近吃了一顿英式传统圣诞火鸡大餐 (见下图),庆祝一番。

趁此圣诞佳节,谢谢各位论坛朋友在过去一年的热烈支持,你们的参与是论坛的福气。希望在 2015 年我们大家继续努力与论坛一起踏入一个崭新的境界。

我也趁假期于下周回国省亲。虽然会带著 iPad,由于旅途中未必能随时与网络连接,无法如愿及时与大家于此见面,请先见谅。 ProZ.com 的站员将协助本论坛的管理工作。若网络连接畅顺,我定会上来与大家见面、聊天及向你们问候。Rita 在亚洲地区也将继续尽量协助的。

祝愿各位朋友、同仁及您们的至爱家人

圣诞快乐、新年健康、进步!

A laugh a day keeps the attorney away Dec 23, 2014

A client telephoned his attorney’s office: May I talk to my attorney Mr. Shark, please?
Receptionist: I am sorry to say that Mr. Shark passed away last week.

A few minutes later, the client called again: May I talk to my attorney Mr. Shark, please?
Receptionist: I am sorry, but, as I told you, he passed away last week.

Soon afterwards, the client ringed again: May I talk to my attorney Mr. Shark, please?
This time the receptionist lost her patience: I am very sorry, but did I ever tell you that Mr. Shark had already passed away?
The client replied: Yes, you did, but I just love to hear it!

PETER PAN Dec 27, 2014

Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up or Peter and Wendy is J. M. Barrie's most famous work, in the form of a 1904 play and a 1911 novel.

The play and novel were inspired by Barrie's friendship with the Llewelyn Davies family. Barrie continued to revise the play for years after its debut until publication of the play script in 1928.

The play debuted in London on 27 December 1904 …

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._M._Barrie


“There could not have been a lovelier sight; but there was none to see it except a little boy who was staring in at the window. He had ecstasies innumerable that other children can never know; but he was looking through the window at the one joy from which he must be forever barred.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“She asked where he lived.
Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning. ”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.” ― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“To live will be an awfully big adventure.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“To die would be an awfully big adventure.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” ― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“If you cannot teach me to fly, teach me to sing.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.” ― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land!”

― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Peter Pan Dec 27, 2014

QHE,

Thanks for the clips. Here's a link to the entire 1960 version of the TV broadcast. I already left the U.S. by then. But the entire production was basically the same as the 1954 original Broadway production and the 1955, 1956 TV broadcasts ...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJFtCfHDFfw


We had the soundtrack of the entire show on a set of 45 rpm records. Incidentally, when the Red Guards came to the apartment at the beginning of the Cultural Revolution, they were flabbergasted that the records wouldn't break by smashing them on the concrete floor.

Mary Martin and Cyril Ritchard were simply brilliant in this musical. They both won Tonys in 1955.

Cyril Ritchard ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4snrLEDca4 (Tango)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkqC8x-q5UU (Tarantella)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gims9O9oi8s (Waltz)

BTW, the recent NBC production "Peter Pan Live!" was a big disappointment. IMO, the roles of Peter Pan and Captain Hook were both haplessly miscast.
