Missing Sync for Palm OS 4.0

I just purchased Missing Sync for Palm OS 4.0, now I can mount my palm handhelds directly to the Mac for file transfer, it’s like drive mode that being missed in the latest handheld, Palm TX. Oh yeah, I have TX for almost a week.

The syncing process seems to be faster compared to the PalmSource Hotsync Manager, besides the speed, it has a far more neat interface showing all available conduits, with installation window just side-by-side.

But what I missed was to perform a network synchronization between handheld and desktop (I used to do so between PPC and PC), so Missing Sync seems to provide this network HotSycn between Mac and Palm via Wireless network. I was able to initiate a network sync with firewall shut off, however, I still got error and the synchronization never completed. Whoever success in network synchronization between TX and Mac, please drop me an email

今天的晚餐

今天晚上又和小强出去腐败,最近天气冷所以特别谗~~特意到乌节的Restaurant Marche想吃他们家的烧烤鱼 (sambal stingray),结果竟然卖完了??!!没办法,点了一客烤三文鱼,然后又喝wild mushroom soup..最后吃了一道garlic sausage就撑死了。。这不象我啊,我平时很能吃的怎么今天就吃了这么点?不管了,看图说话:

据说是他们有名的蘑菇汤,还蛮好喝的

Salmon steak,就这么点,10元飞走了

Garlic sausage,那一团土豆丝很好吃

这是小强爱吃的面包

到这里来吃饭的人似乎都很喜欢点这瓶饮料,我也来一瓶

Treo 650的相机还是不错用的,用来证明我今天腐败过。

兰花花

昨天入手了一张雨果〈兰花花〉(HRP 771-2),前阵子一直在想新加坡哪里可以找到雨果唱片,问过老狼他只说让我到他家去听,后来当然没去成。昨天和小强外出到Tiong Bahru吃中饭,偶然发现那里原来有家That CD Shop…

进去转转,我以为这家CD店和Sembawang, HMV之流差不多,不过才转了半圈发现我错了。虽然其规模没有gramophone (city hall)的大,但是其CD品味已经足以使人印象深刻。

因为是午饭时间,只能随便逛了,然后我在店里一角落发现了都是雨果唱片(要深入店里就能看到)。我的memo上写着要找的这张陕北民歌〈兰花花〉竟然就在架上!没有细想,拿了它和另一张彭修文的〈将军令〉就到柜台要求试听。在That CD Shop似乎所有CDs都能要求试听,柜台小姐给了我一只AKG的耳机就让我自己试听(没注意型号,但感觉比gramophone的AKG耳机稍微高端一点)。他们家用的Marantz CD player,很可惜我又来不及注意型号。。

忙碌了一天,终于能回家好好欣赏这张〈兰花花〉,CD共录有20首曲子,都是陕北民歌中的精典。演唱的都是中国国家级的著名歌唱家,例如冯健雪、员恩凤、马子清、杨巧、于桂荣和张智斌。所灌录的陕北名曲包括“女儿歌”、“兰花花”、“泪蛋蛋泡在沙蒿林”,“五哥放羊”、“走西口”、“上一道坡坡下一道梁”等等。我自己的设备也还可以的,曲子的演绎与录音皆精彩绝伦,扣人心弦。“兰花花”开始时中间稍左处有一把笛子领奏。除了笛子在中间稍左之外,尚有扬琴(中间稍前)、二胡(左边)、高胡(二胡右边)、笙(高胡右边)、此外还有琵琶与一些弹拔乐器(扬琴右边)、唢呐(琵琶右边)、木鱼(琵琶右边稍后)、大革胡(或大提琴,在琵琶之后)、倍大革胡(或低音大提琴、在唢呐之后)。而歌唱家杨巧便站在中间稍前的地方唱出兰花花。

个人还比较喜欢马子清演唱的“走西口”,其唱腔特色真“土”,而且还“老土”的可爱,韵味无穷。

总之,此张〈兰花花〉演绎与录音俱佳,是难得的一张精品。如果只是怀旧,那些学生时代常在电台节目中听到的许多好歌,这张〈兰花花〉能让你感觉时光似乎又倒流了。

某人让我上传几首,现“友情放送”,一星期后链接将失效

Fade To Black

by Metallica

Life it seems will fade away
Drifting further everyday
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deadly loss this cant be real
Cannot stand this hell i feel
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me but now, hes gone

No one but me can save myself, but its too late
Now i cant think, think why i should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now i will just say goodbye
Goodbye

说起比较老的重金属乐队,一定不能不提到摇滚帝王Metallica,而Fade To Black是一首内容关于企图自杀的歌。1984年Ride The Lightning这张专辑发行后不久,一位少年自杀后留下的遗言要求在葬礼上播放这首Fade To Black,并引起其它少年自杀者的效仿,不少人在遗书上抄录了这首歌的歌词。虽然鼓手Lars辩解说,他们在几年内收到过几千封来信说Fade To Black如何给了他们生存的勇气。但乐队不得不在这一时期内经常面对媒体的责难。

很巧的,这首歌是近来我iTunes/iPod上播放率最高的,非常喜欢前面一段近1分28秒的器乐演奏。我也并没有想要自杀,只是觉得这首歌所描述的非常符合我现在的心情,如此而已。何况我已经不再年少,呵呵。

Autumn Leaves

by Eva Cassidy

The falling leaves drift by my window
The falling leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sunburned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

(Instrumental for 1 minute)

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

这是最近听得比较有感觉的一只歌,Eva Cassidy的Autumn Leaves. 我想很少有人能抗拒Eva歌声的魔力,她在世时默默无闻,离开人间以后Eva Cassidy的音乐却成为全球市场一致肯定的心灵歌声。我第一次听到她翻唱的Ain’t No Sunshine就深深的被她歌声的张力所感动,惊叹于她独有的音乐感和再创性,很多歌手在重新演绎一首歌往往跳不出原唱者的框框,可是Eva Cassidy在这方面却有特别的能力,经她演绎过的歌曲仿佛那些歌曲就是专为她量身订做似的。

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

虽然Eva Cassidy已经离开我们快10年了,但是Eva Cassidy动人的歌喉却还是保存下来。她的歌声,我无法用文字形容,就上传一首看官自己来评。

(Autumn leaves, 秋叶,突然想起“生如春花,死如秋叶”这句话~)

Autumn Leaves

高烧

事情的经过是这样的,两个星期前第一次洗了我小4的胶皮帽,这对小帽帽我用了一年了没洗过~~~ 其实不洗也没什么大不了,但也不知道怎么突然心血来潮就把它摘下来放入清水里随便过一过。然后放在桌上晾了一个下午,第二天觉得应该干了就又戴上了。

接下来的几天右耳开始感觉怪怪的,问了老丁他说有可能是中耳炎,不放心就去看医生,医生说感染了,给了药水我也不当回事每天有事没事就点一点,过几天就好了。当时因为是发炎感染,所以以为会发烧结果也没事。郑同学好心提醒我应该向医生要点抗生素,我问了小强结果她blur的不知道该用什么抗生素好~~~

就这样过了三天舒适的生活,星期一开完会议我突然觉得自己得了腮腺炎。当时又没当回事,因为没有发烧,医生也只给了我amoxycillin (625mg per tablet)和pain killer还有两天MC 。然后拿着医生的推荐信去看了牙医,那位年轻的牙医找不出造成我腮腺炎的原因,便建议我把右边的智慧齿动手术拔掉。在看了我牙齿的X光片,聊着聊着又建议说不如也把左边的一起拔了…于是一共要我拔掉4颗牙,我那个汗呐。 天人斗争一番我答应先预约,其实我心里已经打定爽约的决定了,嘿嘿。
拿着两天MC“兴高采烈”的回家,原来还打算第二天去送修我的CD机,如意算盘没打成,第二天一早被剧烈的头痛弄醒,还有上升的体温。。那一天就吃panadol又睡觉的,反正到了晚上烧虽然退了但是仍可以觉得额头还是有那么点热打死不退。
第三天准备去上班了,可是6am起床后发现自己身子热的非常难受,体温计一量竟然是摄氏38度3!吹风扇嘛,越吹越冷,等到了医院等了两个多小时才见到医生,我已经38度8了!TNND。终于又拿了两天MC“兴高采烈”的回家~

回到家以后吃了不少panadol,整日价昏昏沉沉的睡了十几个小时,第二天仍不见好,到了下午我终于尝到高烧的滋味,成了名副其实的“发烧梅菜”:体温一度维持在39度5!我以为我快emergency了,同屋的给我买了几包冰,我趁还清醒的时候给小强拼命发短信咨询。最后还是照着老丁的指示洗冷水浴、使用医用冰袋才度过了那个夜晚。。总之那天一夜没睡,从午夜12点一直到早上6点,好不容易才降温到38度3。那个痛苦的夜晚,我一辈子都不会忘记。
回去看了同一个医生,一度以为我得了登革热可惜blood count结果血小板数目正常,只有白血球偏底,很明显的是不知名病毒感染。做了X-ray,什么也没检查出来。医生向我道歉说她也没办法,只能希望奇迹出现了。(说完她桌上手机震动,我瞅了一下原来是O2 Xda mini~)

就这样到了星期六,我生病第六天,共抽了5次血。。很神奇的我终于退烧了!等到完全可以上班的时候,我突然又怀念起这六天生病的日子。。。真的不想上班啦。

Treo resets after hotsync

I have not installed anything in my Treo 650 these days and used only PIM and Documents To Go mainly for my work. Because of that, the last hotsync I performed was nearly one month ago and I depended on BackupMan heavily to keep my entire data backup.

Yesterday I was installing the Destaller Lite to the latest version, at the end of hotsyncing my Treo 650 reset itself and gave me the error message:

PIMsDataMgr.c, line:135,
checkRecordChunk means chunk is null

I did several hotsync and my Treo ended up soft reset itself with the same error message. I did Google search and gleaned as much information I could which related to my case. It seems that it was mainly caused by corrupted contacts and so the advice was to delete several databases listed below, and set the conduit settings to “Macintosh overwrites handheld”:

ContactsAVIndex-PAdd.pdb
ContactsDBIndex-PAdd.pdb
ContactsDB-PAdd.pdb
ContactsSimDB-PAdd.pdb
AddressDB.pdb

To make it safer, I beamed all my contacts over to my monochrome palm Acer s10, just in case and also the contacts in my Treo were more updated. So I did another round of hotsyncing, guess what, my Treo hang at synchronizing contacts! I did hard reset, used dbScan and fixAddressdb to scan for corrupted databases yet all looked O.K. When I opened Palm Desktop that I’d never used for long time, it pop out a message saying, “Volume is locked”. I quickly did another Google search and found out that my permissions for Palm Desktop have become corrupted. The instructions here asked to delete several files but actually a reinstallation of Palm Desktop would solve the problem.

After restarting my Mac, set conduit settings to “Macintosh overwrites handheld” the problem gone away. I beamed my contacts from s10 back to Treo and everything worked as normal.

In the end I still have no idea what would be the actual culprit, causing problem for me. Anyway, Google really helped a lot.

Chain Post

据说最近spaces上流行介个怪癖chain post,被上家(奸人)点名的五个人必须在自己的blog列出自己的5大怪癖,然后再点名5个下家,结尾给出链接,被点名的5个人依照此法,循环散播。。

奸人:cutey

Livy的5大怪癖:
1. 喜欢早睡早起,就算周末不上班也喜欢早早起床对着电脑。有时候睡晚了第二天还是会早早6点就起床,虽然我只要9点以前到实验室就可以了。。
2. 早晚二餐只要找到对胃口的食物,接连几天、几星期都会去光顾同一家、吃一样的,我光顾的次数多所以经常和店家一下子就熟了。“是不是还是xxx?”“恩。”简单明了。哈
3. 吃饭的时候总要把自己的碗盘里的米饭吃的干干净净、一颗米粒不剩。碟子里经常闪闪发亮将众人绝倒。
4. 听耳机的时候不喜欢戴眼镜。。。(这算怪癖吗?)
5. 在公共场合喜欢戴上ER-20耳塞,周遭环境突然象音量变小了,但是耳朵非常受用的说!由于戴耳塞的关系,我看起来好像火星人。恩。真心推荐各位地球人人手一对ER-20s,因为噪音无所不在。

写完了怪癖,其实仔细看看,我这都是好孩子的好习惯啊。现在点名:

My cans and rough impressions

Equipment used:

Sources: mainly the Musical Fidelity X-Ray CDP, and occassionally the NAD C521BEE
Amps: Corda HA-2 MkII, Original Master, Little Dot II, SRM-313
Interconnects: mainly using DIY Slinkylinks cables with QED plugs between Corda HA-2 and SRM-313, Cardas Crosslink

Little-tube amplifier

I just got myself a headphone amplifier, the Little Dot II from here. It’s really small, yet look so elegant with the blue LED’s under the tubes. The seller sent it to me on Monday, however, it arrived on Wednesday! I didn’t know that it could be so fast to deliver (from China to Singapore), so I didn’t bring along the 6.5mm headphone adaptor when it arrived my workplace. Oh…
