Friendster is out, facebook is in. In the past few weeks, facebook seems to grow exponentially around my circle of friends. Everyone is ditching friendster and signing up with facebook. I registered my facebook account two weeks ago and now…

相對貧窮

29th Apr 2007 - 05:44pm 政治經濟
說起什麼是貧窮﹐大部份人必定會想起非洲那些餓很瘦骨如柴的飢民﹐ 又或者在電視新聞上看起那些衣不蔽體﹐頂無片瓦的難民。畢境不論是基於人道責任還是身為人類的同情心﹐我們也不能接受社會上有人連生存的權利也沒有保障。可幸的隨著經濟發展人民生活日漸富裕﹐社會有能力負擔公共福利為人民提供最基本的生活必需﹐在發達國家中生活於貧窮線下的人數已大幅減少。在今天的香港社會中﹐相信不會出現路有凍死骨或小孩子要挨肚餓的慘況。正當我們的滅貧大計取得空前成功﹐一些社會學者卻提出貧窮一個的新慨念。他們把上述的問題稱為絕對貧窮…

TV commercials

28th Apr 2007 - 09:01pm Daily Scribble
Normally, people hate watching TV commercials.  They will avoid watching commercials by pressing the fast forward button in recorded programs, change channels or go to the washroom in live programs.  I can’t believe I watched nothing…

Choice of life style

26th Apr 2007 - 06:03am Daily Scribble
What is a good life?  I have been asking this question to myself lately.  The definition of good life have different meanings to different people.  Someone want to be rich and powerful, someone want to live simple and humble.  At the end…

Homeworld 2 萬艦齊發2

25th Apr 2007 - 08:44pm 遊戲
我也好久沒有玩電腦遊戲了﹐對上一個玩的遊戲已是多年前的三國誌十﹐想不到「萬艦齊發2」這個三年前的舊遊戲﹐竟然讓我重溫打機的美好時光。即時戰略遊戲「萬艦齊發」第一代在九九年推出﹐是首個凝造出太空艦隊間戰爭氣勢彭拜的遊戲。當年憑著突破性的畫面﹐引人入勝的科幻故事情節﹐以及創新的3D即時戰略操控介面﹐成為那年度最佳評價的遊戲。「萬艦齊發」第二代變化不大﹐只是改良第一代的遊戲引擎﹐並加入一個全新的故事。本來只是一個毫不起眼的續集﹐不過由於這個遊戲是屈指可數的太空戰略遊戲﹐成為很多科幻系列擁躉私下改良的對象﹐把遊戲中原本的船艦換成喜愛科幻系列中的船艦。在網上流傳的改良版本眾多﹐有「星戰大戰」﹐「高達」﹐「超時空要塞」等等著名的科幻系列。我原本只是好奇下載了「高達」的改良版來看看﹐結果開啟後一發不可收拾﹐要完成單人故事模式方肯罷休。…

Moleskine notebook

When I was small, I remember I used to buy those made-in-china black cover with red corner notebooks.  The paper quality of those notebooks are not great, but I have wrote countless lectures notes on them and they accompany me through my high…

反重置皇后碼頭疑點重重

23rd Apr 2007 - 06:21pm 政治經濟
看罷香港獨立媒體的保留皇后碼頭FAQ﹐我發現有關反對重置皇后的理據疑點重重。反對重置者若不能清楚回應以下的疑點﹐不免令人質疑保留皇后頭碼的合理性。…

An Inconvenient Truth 絕望真相

22nd Apr 2007 - 06:40pm 電影
過氣政治人物通常在落選後消聲匿跡﹐前美國副總統戈爾(Al Gore)是少數的例外。他在二千年大選因幾百張有問題的選票落敗給小布殊後﹐到處演講致力環保工作﹐希望喚醒世人明白地球暖化的危機。說起來他在這幾年間的貢獻﹐比他行行企企當副總統的日子還多。去年他拍攝了「絕望真相」這齣記錄片﹐希望讓更多人知道這個問題的迫切性。這齣電影更榮獲奧斯卡最佳記錄片的獎項﹐喚起了大眾對地球暖化問題的關注。…

Western philosophy vs eastern philosophy

I have a good chat with an old friend tonight.  I told him I was taking philosophy.  He said he is quite interest in eastern, especially Chinese, philosophy too.  We talked about the difference between western and eastern philosophy. …

Cooking Mama

20th Apr 2007 - 11:58am Daily Scribble
I played Cooking Mama for Wii last night at my friend’s place.  Although the graphic is quite primitive, I found this game is really fun.  As you can see from the title, it is a cooking game.  You may wonder what’s fun about cooking…
