XEPC.org recovery disk

Tuesday, April 29. 2008

Thanks to the hard work of XEPC.org. By install their recovery disk, I can get 2.3G of free SSD space out of my EeePC 701.

It is a brilliant idea to compress the content stored at the system partition which is read-only in the default setting. Such method is not new and is very common among LiveCDs. I don't understand why Asus didn't implement of such method to better utilize the small SSD space at the beginning.

Next version of EeePC to include Intel-Atom and HSDPA

Monday, April 21. 2008

Luckily I read this article before buying the EeePC 900. If it really going to include Intel-Atom and built-in HSDPA module in Q3 2008. I better to stick with my current EeePC 701.

If the price of the next version is reasonable, than can have a better configuration. Otherwise, go back for a 900 and hopefully the price will be lowered :-P


The Rose

Friday, April 18. 2008


Yesterday when I lookup my backup disks, I found an archive containing some AsciiArt collected 10 years ago during my school life.

Digital media changes a lot during recent 10 years, from a simple picture/graphic, to MP3, to Mpeg4 ...etc but those AsciiArts still looks beautiful and attractive.


This piece is the one that I love very much, it was once my ".project" content in the unix days ......

Tuesday, April 15. 2008

每次清明回鄉祭祖, 都是一大伙親戚開車去的. 所以雖然我知道祖墳所在地的名稱, 但究竟它在東西南北那一方卻完全沒有概念.

幸而, 現今科技發達, 用一個小小的裝置便能定位, 再加上 Google Earth 這類免費軟件, 連周圍的地型及地標均一目了然.
