Did you really get jealous back then?

How’s that?

When I asked your colleague instead of asking you when you were there?

How’s that relevant?

Just curious.

Your prejudice is your own making and I have nothing to blame.


And now, you know the answer.


Into the Mists

Gone might be the right word but in some cases, it isn’t. Choosing to disappear bears too many consequences and if after all of these, reappear is inevitable, questions might demand answers.

The mists contain different realities and thus provide different answers for same question. Once one begins a journey into the mists, foothold from where one came would consequently become irrelevant. Brain would immediately start different constructs for different realities. Eyes would see past, present, and future. One is in every place imaginable and yet no where at the same time.

Once again, gone might be right word for anyone who has gone into the mists. Even if they come back someday, those – who has ventured into the mists and come back – are not ones you think you have known for a long time.

Shades of White

Is that really the question? One would normally thought that world is divided into three colors; black, grey, and white. Some would consider two; black and white without things in between.

During the journey one has been through, one eventually came across a type of figure whom possess ability to convey message with subtle opportunity to bend the message to one’s will. Once the message is conveyed, one would be still in control and at times could change the message without the listener questioning the integrity of the message. Because everything about it is true and being false is just another perspective.


Where Is the Binary?

There is one of many questions regarding how Linux works:

Where is the binary files stored in Linux?

There is a command we are all familiar to use, such as these.

$ sudo yum install <package name>
$ sudo apt-get install <package name>

When using sudo, is the application installed on currently active user only, or is it usable by other users as well? After looking around, the binary is found under /usr/share instead of /home.

I know this is stupid but as someone who rarely use Linux unless it is absolutely emergency, I couldn’t help it. It is revealed to me that if I want to configure my own environment, I have to create my own application folder structure. i.e. Application under /home/<username>/ and then later download every package I need and put them all on PATH. After that, I need to figure out how to make my PATH automatically set every time I start my computer. Seems a lot of work.

Casual Gaming Entry #1

Welcome to Lion’s Arch. It’s been a while since the city was last visited. Wonder what to do this time.

SLI : Between Needs and Desires

One question asked when buying a new card: why would you want to buy that one instead of another?

Let us just see. The main concern of SLI is either heavy workload or heaving gaming, which also implies heavy workload, which for those who play casually, won’t need something that fancy.

Another main concern is that of electricity bill. Multiple cards require more powerful PSU and 400 Watt won’t cut it. If using 1000 Watt could multiply your productivity and thus enable you to pay your bill, then go for it. If not, then why bother?

But of course it’s your money and you can anything about it. Why bother listening to what I’ve said?

Law of Motion

When experiencing changes, one must remember which basic law applied to the structure, such as below.

A static object with no net force acting on it remains at rest or if in movement it will maintain a constant velocity

The same thing may apply in social structure. i.e. One would expect to see the tendency of how things move inside the structure. A single mistake might sincerely abort the whole system altogether.

Since time immemorial certain group of people would gladly decide things without even a single concern of how the others behave and their idea of how things would benefit them. Then when things go south, who gets the blame?
