Eureka! – 2014 Review

Spending most of my time working for Lane Crawford last year. A very good experience to train up myself especially in Continuous Integration and systems/application monitoring~ Thanks Ronnie for giving me a chance to work with him again and also meet a interesting team in LC.

Other than tech stuff like Puppet, Django and Dashing etc. I think the most important thing i learn is about the goal of adopting Continuous Integration. In that past, i always thought that CI is about automating tedious steps and reduce any prone to human error. But now i realize that other than these practical purposes, CI also helps to promote team work with your colleagues which, for me, is very important in a working environment. And that may be the reason why i love working on CI project so much as i am always looking forward to working in a harmonic and funny team.

All the best in 2015!

汪生 – 當集中營裡,月台火車進站

令我想起幾年前香港有巴士司機擺工,每次埋站都要等十秒才開車。記者訪問一位趕上班的女乘客,她一臉無奈地埋怨擺工的司機阻礙她上班,害她遲到。

 

背景資料: 關廠工人臥軌 他們應該還錢嗎?
Thanks Ronnie! =)

 

距今七十年,在納粹集中營裡,據生還者描述,被囚者普遍面臨到這樣一種抉擇難題:「到底該不該試圖逃亡?」

當時他們的處境是這樣的:「越獄,就直接處死同層監獄的所有人」——反抗必死!但不反抗——最後還是得死。於是成為了「到底要不要再多活一天?」的取捨。

在這樣的情況底下,發生了一件有趣的事。為了那「多活的一天」,一些人開始選擇跟當權者合作。當監獄裡出現小規模騷動時,這一群人就會負責去制止意圖肇事的那一群人。於是,監獄內的秩序維持,不再需要憑藉獄卒力量,光是一人想反抗,其他獄友也會「讓他死」。

這,就是「監獄幫派」。

旅行的力量 – 深夜特急最終回

作者: 澤木耕太郎

旅行對我來說就是自己喜歡做的事,親身感受那個國家的文化與經歷歷史遺留下的行跡。不喜歡一切被規劃下來,最好留一點空間做即興的“探險”

當然我以往的旅行與作者澤木先生的那種終極的背包形式還差十萬八千里,但我仍希望我可以仍在適合旅行的年齡來一趟這種背包旅行。它需要的是勇氣放下決心

旅行的力量並不只在旅行的時刻被需要,其實人生正正就是一次漫長的旅行。有些人喜歡隨團、有些人喜歡背包、亦有些人喜歡探險。擁有旅行的力量,就等於為自己的人生裝備起來。

我想我跟作者有一點相似,就是不喜歡做別人同樣的事。 XD

多謝 Tinyan 在我26歲前為我播下旅行的種子,亦多謝 Ronnie 介紹此書給我。 =)

Maven H2O

Finally i could find some time to release this Maven H2O which i did when i was working in CECID in 2009-2010. It is under GNU General Public License (GPL v2). I fixed some dependencies problem and i found that the Maven repository has changed since i left CECID. It is now ready in GitHub.

Thanks Ronnie who gave me the chance to learn Maven and apply it on the H2O project. Also give thanks to other teammates – Philip, Steve, Patrick, Franz, Jumbo. I missed the time working with you guys in the CECID H2O team.

 

Done =)
