Get Back to My Own Life.
I get a little bit tired of the recent “discussion” on my blog. I just found the effort to setup a communication bridge is not that easy. I am not comfortable some of the comments. If people involved in discussion are not willing to pay even little effort to learn, it does not make too much sense to comment.
It is not easy to open one’s heart to pay little effort to understand another country, for people both inside or outside China. It sometimes requires more than effort. It requires skills. To be honest, I feel complain and finger-pointing with only the limited information from mess media leads the discussion to nowhere. I did ignore some comments. Sorry for that. I have to.
OK. Let me take a moment and relax, and bring the blog to be my own one. I am not blogging for anyone. Just leave me alone… :-)
My Air Con
After the summer came, Wendy complained every day or two about the malfunction of our A/C in the bedroom. It simply cannot cool down the room. The HITACHI support staff also complained the new technology used in this model does not work as expected. I believe the big window of the room may also be the reason of the condition. The smaller, cheaper, and simpler LG A/C in my reading room works much better. It is just of half price. Sometimes cheaper stuff works better.
Wendy is using Windows Vista on her new laptop already. On Vista, she also installed Office 2007. The new UI is cool, but I was surprised by the memory usage and the hard disk usage of the new operating system. Henry said: “When there is breakthrough in hardware (CPU, Memeory, Equipments), the demand for software increases; when the development of hardware slows down, Internet based application becomes popular.”
BTW, recently I just realized Wendy’s team is supporting the major Windows product like Windows XP, Windows 2003, and Windows Vista for Microsoft Asia premier customers. They even support Groove! Groove is the software enabling people to collaborate with each other. The company was started by Lotus Notes’ creator, and bought by Microsoft. It is an important assignment, isn’t it? Wendy and I both have our own worlds, with different pressure, and different metrics we oversee every single day. Recently, I just realized I know her business as little as she knows mine. Should we know more about each other’s business? I think the answer would better be “no”. :-)
