iRotate
先報告一下,今天到了最後還是請假了。
早上起來時有點小發燒,
索性就不去了。

明天要不要去上班還在考慮中。
其實沒什麼,
只是喉嚨痛,
對要講8個小時的話這件事還是有所保留。

還是多修養一下吧...



So, what else did I do today besides sleep?

Well, I did spend some time on my video card driver on my notebook PC.

The story goes like this:

My notebook is a HP/Compaq nx4300, and the video card is Intel 915GM series.

The thing about this Intel 915GM video card driver I didn't like about is that it does not come with a rotate function. It maybe a very common function with present day video cards, even my desktop PC's video card has the rotate function built in despite its older than my notebook PC. However I don't know what is wrong with Intel, but somehow the 915GM does not have this function.

This was especially a problem for me on my notebook PC. I don't really need the rotate function on my desktop since I am using XSGA (1280 * 1024 pxl) + XGA (1024 * 768). The XSGA is pretty much a near square looking screen, so there is not much a difference between whether I rotate the screen or not. (Wide-screen DVD movies would still only use about half of my entire monitor area, but this format is very handy when surfing the web, using M$ office, or reading manga). It is totally a different story with my notebook PC. My notebook PC has a really weird resolution format, the (weird) WXGA (1280 * 768), its even wider than the usual wide screen monitors on the market (the usual WXGA is 1280 * 800). Its pretty good when you are watching a wide-screen DVD movie, but not so nice when you are trying to read some documents that are in portrait format instead of landscape (and please tell me how many documents are in landscape format? none?). You either have to minimize the entire page to really small, or risk only be able to read the upper portion/lower portion of the document in the original resolution. More importantly. I would love to read something from my notebook while laying on my bed.

Long story short, the rotate function is still not present on the newest driver from Intel for 915GM. So after some googling, I found a free program made by a Taiwanese firm called "iRotate". It pretty much works like an add-on for the video card drivers that do not have the rotate function. So with a push of Ctrl + Alt + ↑/↓/←/→, I can change the orientation of my screen. Finally!! I am able to read off my notebook while laying completely on my side. \ ^o^ /

Better yet, the wide screen works so well on single-paged manga scan as you can see from the example below.



The ratio aspect of the single paged manga works pretty well with a wide-screen if we can turn the screen 90/270 degrees.





This is especially true on reading novels. On the original orientation, if I want to read the entire page all at once, the words would be too small for me to read. Yet, if I make the word big enough, then I have to scroll up and down on every single line.


So, yeah!!! iRotate is such a handy program for pool guys like me who can't get a simple rotate function from the video card driver.

喉嚨痛卻又很想吃KFC




感冒了!
身體很聽話的熬到週末才發作。
喉嚨痛了整個週末還在痛,
不知道明天會不會好。

正在考慮要不要請病假。



雖然感冒,這個週末我都在趕遊戲進度。
Galzoo Island 已經是破關寸前了。

遊戲裡面有幾句還不錯的台詞,
順便打出來。

どんな悪人にも、
心の奥底に決して汚すことの出来ぬ輝くものを持っている。

そして、どんな善人にも、
醜い心が、な...

[snap] Erica Bear behind bars


熊被關了




前陣子有點想買個像樣的填充布偶,
逛了 ToysЯUs (日文輸入法打這些亂七八糟的符號真簡單~♪ ★)的心得只有: 好醜, 質感好差, 好幼稚!


嗯...星期五跟LE alumi 在 Commercial drive 吃完飯後在夜晚的街上逛,
某家店展示窗內的復古布偶好對味!
只是像下面那隻羊好像值 CAN$50


我開始懷念起以前那隻被我虐待的熊了!
記得好像是很廉價就把他贖回來的樣子...
好想再買隻回來幫他動手術!

日常閒聊


[snap] 深夜の向日葵


這是我離開大陸的前一晚,
跟幾個特別好的同事吃完飯,
搖搖擺擺的走回宿舍的路上照的。

記的那晚風很大,我很醉,快門很慢。


嗯... 我一直拖到今天才把照片傳進電腦裡!! 囧">

==================================

應該是很快樂的事...我今天砸了CAN$9500!!!
欠的Student loan 已經剩四位數了!
一年內就可以還清了!

===================================

昨天終於收到從 ebay 買的 UV 濾鏡了!
整整花了兩個星期才到,
上網一看,
寄到法國的都沒那麼久!!

不知道是 USPS 該打,
還是 Canada Post 該砍?

好笑的是信封上還印著 AIR MAIL...我想我的濾鏡大概是先飛到火星才飛到我的手上吧!!

另外一件更早一天從美國 IOWA 寄給我的東西,
網上的更新狀況現在還停留在 2月27日下午四點收件。
我懷疑我看不到信的可能性...

前因後果不想講
以下是昨晚我與大學友人B的談話片段:


真是太有挑戰性了... 請不要把 lv.2 只打得贏屎萊姆的我送去打 lv.20 幾的小魔王.... 小魔王把我整慘了... 就好像孔明在對我劉禪用計一樣,我完全不知道諸葛匹夫在想什麼...



嗯, 請智力100的諸葛亮不要再欺負智力是個位數的阿斗了!! 囧"
如果問題能像解 Quadratic equation 那麼簡單!
這樣我們至少在同一個次元裡面思考,而答案就是 x=1, -3 就好了! (我秀抖

現在你是在八奇的思考領域, 而我是許褚 囧很大

閒話


Jellyfish



好想拍人...可是沒人給我拍...orz

我真不會拍風景,怎麼拍怎麼爛。
照出來自己都覺得有夠無趣。
可惜我沒有養貓,養狗,不能當バカ親(溺愛的父母)整天幫自己的寵物拍照。
沒有上課就沒有同學可照。
上班不適合拍照。
回家不想照我媽我弟。
冬天沒有花可照。
唉...我要發起外拍團!!! (但不要提有沒有人,光是我禮拜六日要上班就被否決了)

這一個月的薪水,
該買 D300 好,
還是單線買賣美金好。
稅打一打,大概一個月薪水還是買不起 D300 ! orz

複雑な...
人は同じ過ちを繰り返す...
もう知らない...おんなごころはまったく知らず、
海より深しき、
ナゾであり。

今、待ちつつしかないかな。



今来むと
いひしばかりに
長月の

有明の月を
待ち出でつるかな
