First home in Shanghai

Posted by – February 28, 2006

I rented a flat with another two roommates who works in the same area at Shenbei Road in Minhang District. It is a small road which is located in southern Shanghai and the house is very far away from the centre of the city. It takes about 45 minutes for me to get to the People Square by subway from my flat. Fortunately, the Line 5 subway is not far away from my house.

The house is near my workplace and I believe it is a good daily exercise for me to walk to the office by foot.


Basename Bug in MovableType 3.2

Posted by – February 27, 2006

Recently, I encounter a problem when I use the “preview” function when I publish my entries. I guess you may have suffered this bug with MovableType 3.2 if you are also a newbie of MovableType. The problem is when an entry is saved from the Preview screen; the entry basename may be incremented or, if the title was changed, altered to fit the new title. And the other pages such as category page and index page will automatically change to the new entry’s permanent link.

My 10-years-have-not-seen classmate Yin Huanhuan added to my MSN messenger contact list yesterday. It is unbelievable that she is a writer now and is very famous in my hometown. She wrote a river novel called “柔柔女孩心”. I guess every section of this fiction is the reflection of her.

A trick using #if pre-processor

I hit a small C++ grammar trick which I have never met before in my project. The problem is how to deal with the situation that two defined identifiers have the same compilation behavior. A simple solution to this is to write two same block code like this:


My MovableType Archive Template

Posted by – February 12, 2006

The original archive template in MovableType 3.2 will list all the articles in block. Of course, I do not like showing my articles in such a chaos. Obviously, My Readers will suffer a lot as the total of my articles increase to a considerable number. So I search the Internet and try to find a way that displaying the articles more friendly. Well I find a yearly archives template is very similar to my demand, but what I prefer is list my articles all together separated by month not year.
