在听 the pillow 的“Come On, Ghost”时,我突然想到如果我有两只分别名为 Beast 和 Ghost 的猫,那我就有正当理由时不时突然来一句“Come on, Ghost; Come on, Beast”了。

While listening to the pillow's "Come On, Ghost", it struck me that if I were to keep two cats and name them Beast and Ghost respectively, I'll have legitimate reason to call out "Come on, Ghost; Come on, Beast" randomly.

网页版 Google Inbox 看起来还活着! 我已经不在手机上使用 Inbox了:作为替代,我在 Gmail 里设置了邮件转发以便使用 iOS 自带的邮箱程序。 但是,我仍然更喜欢网页版 Inbox 多过网页版 Gmail。 让我们看看 Inbox 还能撑多久。

Looks like Google Inbox's web front end is still alive as of April 2nd! I've switched away from the Inbox app on my phone, and set up forwarding on Gmail so that I can use the stock iOS Mail app. However, I still much prefer Inbox's web front end to that of Gmail. Let's see how much longer it will last.

今天我的密匙又可以在 Github 下使用了(在 Firefox 里)。希望昨天的情况只是偶发事件。

Turns out my keys work fine on Github under Firefox today. Hopefully it is just a one-time-thing.

我最近开始使用安全密钥作为除一次性密码之外的双重认证手段。 然而让我感到沮丧的是,许多网站只在 Chrome 下完整支持安全密钥,比如 Google (注册新密钥必须使用 Chrome ,但 Firefox 正在修复这一问题),和 Github (“我们建议更新到最新的 Google Chrome 以开始使用安全密钥设备”)。考虑到微软最近的 Edge 和 Skype 更新,不难猜到幕后黑手是谁。

I've started using security keys in conjunction with OTP for 2FA. However, it really frustrates me that a number of websites only fully support security key under Chrome, namely Google (registering new keys only work in Chrome, but Firefox is making a fix), and now Github ("We recommend updating to the latest Google Chrome to start using security key devices"). Considering MS's Edge rebuild and Skype refresh, I guess that's why we can't have nice things.

今年我已经跑了 402 英里!由于年中的时候偷懒了好一段时间,我的 1000 英里计划不大可能实现了,不过还有明年!😆

So far I've ran 402 miles this year! I largely slacked off during mid year so there goes my grand 1000 mile plan, but there's always the next year. 😆


The speed drop over powerline ethernet adapters is a lot greater than I expected, making the weaker WiFi signal actually the more desirable choice here.


It just occurred to me nearly half of 2018 has passed. So far I'm a bit behind the pace on my 1000-mile goal, with only 340 miles so far. I totally blame the weather on this one---running at 100 °F is pretty exhausting. I've finished 5 blog posts this year (that's 10 counting both languages), with 3 more in the works, which is pretty good progress.

由于 Github 被微软收购,我正在着手把一些个人用代码仓库转移到我自己的服务器上的 Gitea 里。 Gitea 的设置过程非常简单明快,而且比 Gitlab 要省资源得多。我觉得有着庞大用户群和流量的 Github 可以称得上是在线代码托管服务中的 Youtube ,所以我还是希望 Github 能够保持高质量的服务。

I am planning on hosting most personal repositories on my Gitea instance now that Github is acquired by Microsoft. Gitea is a breeze to setup and a lot less resource hungry than Gitlab. Hopefully Github remains awesome - I feel Github is basically Youtube of online git repositories because of its large traffic compared to other services.
