This Week I Learned 2018 - Week 31

Last week post or something from the archive.

What is the most mind-blowing thing I've accidentally found out about Thinkpad? Fn + Space toggle the light at the top of the monitor, near the web cam. Seriously?

為什麼時間感覺有時過得快、有時過得慢? 我之前已经有提到随着年龄增长,你就会觉得時光飛逝,但是只是用岁月来简说如此经历,一点都没有科学根据。然而,啾啾鞋的解说,终于让我也明白为何我会有如此体验。简单的说,是我们自己的脑作怪。仔细说明,理由有三。第一,暂时性幻觉 (Temporal Illusion)。第二,伸缩效应(Telescoping Effect)。第三,停表错觉(Chronostasis)。


大叔为什么能配萝莉?戏剧有点美化的中年危机?重点还是量力而行,自我调节。

What to do this too much advice? (via HN) We are always looking for confirmation rather than advice. Furthermore, advice is always cheap anyway.

Are there receivers to avoid on the used market? Any Onkyo receiver with HDMI daughter board. I've confirmed this with local audio shop which sells a lot of second hand AV receiver. Why so? It seemed their circuit board was designed to run everything (analogue, optical, and coaxial) through the HDMI board. And when you have faulty HDMI board, nothing works. The funny things is browsing through some YouTube videos, the fix was quite easy by replacing the faulty capacitors. Does the same problem exists for newer AV receivers. Not sure but discussion with the shop owner indicates that it's wise to pick some other brands instead.

Is the Sony Core SS-CS5 bookshelves speakers most unknown and underrated speakers? I'm quite surprise that one Redditor claimed that it's even better than Klipsch R-15M, KEF Q1000, Elac B5 / B6, or even the popular Pioneer SP-BS22-LR. My research indicates that this is true to a certain extend, one reviewer mentioned that the pro of this speaker is the clarity of the music but lacking in the mid range and bass. The clarify of this speaker was proven that someone even suggested that we can using this pair as center speaker instead. In other words, not a all rounded speaker. And by the way, Elac and Pioneer are hyped not because of the quality but due to a certain quality within that affordable price range.
