This Week I Learned 2019 - Week 02

Last week post or going back for old stuff instead.

What else I learned this week in separate posts? First, continue with ornamental fish culture through MOOC on body profiles and spawning behaviours, famous species, primitive or Jurassic fishes, and Goldfish. Second, the literature review of the paper on minimal water volume for intensively producing male Siamese fighting fish. And lastly, Module::CoreList is our Perl Module(s) of the Week (plMOTW).

How Photography Is Affecting Our Brains? Due to distance, camera angle, and distortion, taking selfie (around 1 foot) makes your nasal base seemed 30% larger compare to selfie taken at 5 feets away. How about normal photos? While photos can be a good memory preservation, taking and sharing photos for social medias will lead to "self presentational concern or anxiety". Instead of engaging current moment while photographing, you're being distracted. If you still need to share and want to fully enjoy the moment, delay sharing instantly just like the old way of photographing. The professional and amateur photographer comparison test was predictable. Professional composes while amateur looks. Technology advancement changed how we take photos. We don't look and feel the subject but instead through the screen of our equipment instead.

"理解只是使誤解的偏差小了一點?" 看了几遍都不明白,读了评语后,才逐渐了解。

Is it possible to produce 100 grams of garbage each month? Yes, to live with a zero-waste life, you and your partner in crime need to be discipline, have access to cheap locally produced natural food, and living away from busy city.

Why you should join the analog social media? Part of the digital minimalism movement. Just use digital and Internet for essential tasks (works, writing, calendar, map, and others). Join a photowalk walk and have a good discussion on photography, life, or event itself. No need to upload, post, and share the photos.

This Week I Learned 2018 - Week 47

Last week post or something else.

如何避免成为一个油腻的中年猥琐男? 虽然作者的观点是出自于中国男性的观察,但是任何中年人都可从文章借镜。不认同第八条规,“不要停止购物”。年纪越大,物资需求理当越少,甚至到无。

如何用诗词调情?女:父母不在家。男:等會去妳家。

What the recommended anime to watch in year 2018?  Megalo Box. If you're a fan of Cowboy Bebop (not a fan and way overrated), you will like this anime television series as both share a few similarities. 90's hand drawn style (dirty and raw and not like Makoto Shinkai's style), great and unique characters design (looking at you Fairy Tails and Hunter x Hunter), and predictable story line (rag to riches). Meanwhile, if you are a fan of space opera genre, the remake of Legend of the Galactic Heroes is worth watching as well, if you can ignore the  aesthetic of 3D effects which are unappealing and lifeless (looking at you Berzerk 2016).

How do you access the Docker container as root user? Surprisingly, quite straight forward. Uid of zero(0) is equivalent to `root` user.
docker exec -u 0 -it mycontainer bash

What happened when you're using LaTeX to typeset your thesis? A graph shown below (via Reddit) is worth a thousand words. I can relate to the author experience, instead of working on writing, you're struggling with typesetting.



This Week I Learned 2018 - Week 18

Last week post or something else from the archive.

最近无意看了汤浅政明《春宵苦短,少女前进吧!》,那个诡异及天马行空的画风及离奇爱情故事,非常值得一看及收藏的动画电影。导演另一个作品,《四疊半神話大系》,也值得一提。


FORMS. Interesting concept on how to manage your week. In other words, you have a daily theme or something you're going to focus on each day. For example,
  • Monday: Finances 
  • Tuesday: Operations 
  • Wednesday: Research & Development 
  • Thursday: Marketing 
  • Friday: Sales
Interesting learning experience with Perl and Travis CI. From how-should-i-start, to why-this-is-not-working, and finally-something-is-working, Axel Beckert's guide is a definitely must read material. Furthermore, the Travis-CI testing helper for Perl modules does help a lot. However, like most Perl modules out there, documentation and maintenance is still a major issue. No worry, there is a tool to bootstrap the `.travis.yml` file, just install App::CISetup and use `setup-travis-yml.pl`.

Having fun coding and can't seem to stop. Moderation is the key here.

kwalitee. Yes, kwalitee or Test::Kwalitee.

Facepalm. Totally speechless when using Dzil and Perl::Critic. You cannot put the package name in the first line of the code otherwise Perl::Critic will complain.
use strict;
use warnings;
package Foo;
# ABSTRACT: This is a Foo.
# KEYWORDS: foo bar baz

use frobnitz;
use OtherStuff;
...

This Week I Learned - 2016 Week 34

Last week post or you might want to check out the whole series.

As usual, some findings around the Internet.

Using Sublime Text? There is a set of configurations which are useful for you.

Byobu seems to have changed a lot since I last used it. It now supports Tmux.

Supernatural The Animation? Didn't realize that there is an anime series based on the TV series.

This Week I Learned - 2016 Week 16

Write-up for last week or you might want to read the whole series.

Using short URLs when sharing document through OneDrive or Google Drive? Think twice. Researchers have managed to brute force short URLs within six characters to obtain the content.

Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) finally released (Vagrant box download here). The is the LTS release that going to replace the 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) and by looking at the release notes, there are so many upgrades, especially LXD 2.0 (more on other features in coming post). However, there is one feature that everyone is yearning on for so many year. We can now move the launcher to the bottom of the screen ! Hooray ! The funny thing is after so many years of yearning for such feature, I'm getting used of the launcher on the left. How ironic is that?
$ gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Launcher launcher-position Bottom # to the bottom
$ gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Launcher launcher-position Left # to the left

While we're on Ubuntu, another new feature added was Snap package format. However, was seems to be not secure at all as made known by Matthew Garrett. While I'm not sure how this things works, is best to avoid installing any Snap packages.

Talking to a dying person. Pieter Hintjens, the programmer of ZeroMQ, distributed messaging, has been diagnosed with incurable cancer. The best way to talk about this is to remind the patient about the good old days or experience both of you have together. Remind and cherish the memory you have together.

Particular case of renaming files? Didn't realize that renameutils exists. Basically running the 'qmv' command will fire up your editor and let you change the file names as you wish.

I've been tinker with Emacs these days and the ironic part is I've become a more informed Vim user. If you want to save a portion of file to external file and delete it at the same time, pipe it out through ':!cat > filename.txt'.

Surprise found in Youtube, Gundam Thunderbolt (ONA released) was probably the only Anime that caught my attention. Fluid animation (the drum solo), Jazzy music (kind of remind you of Cowboy Bebop, someone even joked about this series as Gundam Bebop), face paced action, and character designDiscussions at Reddit share the same sentiment. All this reignites my interest for Mecha and Gundam Model Kit again.




This Week I Learned - 2016 Week 04

In case you miss out, last week post.

#1 Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū (official site). Caught my attention with its unique and mature story line. Definitely way different from the regular shounen action anime. Basically a story about the journey of an apprentice rakugo storyteller. The fast paced dialogues and art style reminded me of The Tatami Galaxy (Reddit discussion).

#2 Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin (official site). Probably the next anime series I like after the Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team in Gundam franchise. Love the old school animation and original characters design. For some amusement, there is a good discussion on the worse Gundam protagonist.

#3 Social media friends are mostly fake (Reddit discussion). Agree with one of the comment. There is a distinctive difference between a contact and real friends. You should treat all social network as contact list for networking purpose, nothing more and nothing less. Real friends should be interacted through physical life.

#4 Empanada. So this is "Mat Salleh" (Portuguese to be exact) name for Malaysia snack called "karipap" or "curry puff". Knowing this makes me craving for the Empanada, especially those large one with filling of sweet potatoes, chicken meat, and curry spice.

#5 The Bookbinder. Remember before you submit your final thesis or dissertation you need to bind it with fabric or fake leather cover and gold foil lettering or seal? The video illustrates the step-by-step process to do it.

#6 How to create and apply patch in Git. Till today, I still can't remember how to do it properly.

#7 Conversational Commerce (HN discussion). I've noticed that the Social Network is slowly being replaced by Social Messaging. Are we going to the days where ICQ/AIM and IRC were once popular?

#8 PostgreSQL Query Plan Visualization (HN discussion). The most aesthetic visualization of PostgreSQL's execution plan for a SQL statement through the EXPLAIN command (more explanation on its usage). Which is also inspired by another tool explain.depesz.com. Unfortunately both are web-based tool where sometimes not applicable if you've sensitive SQL queries that should remain confidential.
