Windows Photo Gallery shows ugly color

Monday, March 30. 2009

今日去馬灣公園影相, 晚上回來用了 Windows Photo Gallery 來睇相, 發覺色調偏黃. 起初以為今日天陰, 所以自動白平衡出了問題, 所以諗住用 GIMP 修正一下.


但用 GIMP 一開, 給我的感覺是簡正好似在看兩張相不同的相一樣. 雖然色是有一點偏, 但並沒有用 Windows Photo Gallery 那麼嚴重.

Goodbye Xandros

Wednesday, September 24. 2008

Having used the origin Xandros Linux on my EeePC 701 for 10 months, I have to say goodbye to it finally. 


On boot-up performance, Asus really did a good job on customizing the Xandros Linux. However, this also limited the power of it.



In searching the new OS for my EeePC, EeeUser should be a good place to start with. Among the customized EeePC distributions, three of them draw my attention, they are:

CJK font rendering of Google Chrome

Thursday, September 4. 2008

It seems to me that there is some problem (or a bug) with Google Chrome's font rendering engine.

Today when I test it with the KangXi Radicals page of Alan Wood's Unicode Resources, horizontal stroke is missing in some of the characters.

Horizontal stroke is missing in some of the CJK characters on Google Chrome

When I enlarge the font size the problem still there, happening on different characters.

I keep on change the font size larger until no missing stroke, guess how large the fonts need to be...

SVG display problem on Google Chrome

Wednesday, September 3. 2008

It seems there is a bug on Google Chrome to display SVG graphics.

When I use it to display the "Timeline of web browsers" from Wikipedia, it does not show any scroll bar. Although you can use zoom-in/out, or drag the picture to display area out of the window, however it is not user-friendly. 

No scroll bars displayed for SVG graphics on Google Chrome 0.2.149.27 (1583)

I have reported it to Google, and see whether it will be fix in future release or not.





First impression on Google Chrome

Wednesday, September 3. 2008

The Google Chrome just released today, so I installed it and have a try. The interface is quite simple, working fast and smoothly.

Among the new features, I like the Incognito mode the most. With Incognito mode, it will not leave any trace of websites you have visited. All cookies and browsing history will be deleted when the windows was closed. It would be useful for visit the online banking and shopping website, such that it would lower the chance for malware or other people to get your personal data.
