Recently I help the company offshore some work to CN developers, many difficulty I've encounter, most difficult one is it is hard to share the vision and big picture to CN developers.

蒜頭飯 - 閱後傳知他人,添福添壽

一位朋友每天吃蒜頭蒸飯,晚餐用一把蒜頭切碎煮飯, 半年之後高血壓消失了,痛風症消失了,坐骨神經痛亦消失了。 對於目前流行的非典型肺炎,他認為吃蒜頭是增強免疫力的方法, 因為蒜頭是「窮人靈芝」,通血管及清除毒素,以前美軍 亦用作隨身解毒劑。

蒜頭越多越香,拍碎,用油鍋炒香蒜頭放入鹽及煮好的飯,加葫 椒鹽拌炒起鍋。 ( 菲律賓人的早餐都是這道主食 )


另一位朋友提醒要多食維他命 C,以增強抵抗力,並切忌吃煎炸熱氣食物,免引致喉嚨發

1. 約十公克的薑磨成糊狀。
2. 把薑糊放入玻璃杯裡。
3. 注入滾燙的熱開水。
4. 加入一匙蜂蜜,拌勻後飲用。

老薑切片或拍碎煮黑糖功效一樣 , 連續喝兩個月(每天早晚各喝一次 )據書本 記載的見證:
1. 身體變溫暖,手腳冰冷的『怕冷症』體質明顯改善。
2. 體重可減輕約十公斤。
3. 皮膚變得細嫩。
4. 去掉多餘贅肉,腰圍變細。

Note on writing CopyOnWrite wrapper -[..]

Sometime this is a bit difficult for Chinese to be a good programmer, recently some colleague and me discuss about the behaviour of this class and look like we have difficult understanding

A: ConcurrentHashMap support for locking as this is thread-safe
B: ConcurrentHashMap is thread safe for read but not for write because there is no lock, we still need to have external lock to keep it thread safe. By the way, I get ConcurrentModificationException from this before.
C: ConcurrentHashMap don't support for locking but they still thread safe for all operations, which is how "This class is fully interoperable with Hashtable in programs that rely on its thread safety but not on its synchronization details." mentioned.

Someone saying that having private method is anti-pattern, here is the discussion -

Discussion of encapsulation -[..]/encapsulation-does-it-really-exist.html

My view on this is that most of the time there's little value in self-encapsulation. The value of encapsulation is proportional to the scope of the data access. Classes are usually small (at least mine are) so direct access isn't going to be an issue within that scope. Most accessors are simple assignments for the setter and retrieval for the getter, so there's little value in using them internally. -

2)  How does the person respond to your successes?  Many people are willing to commiserate with you when you're down and elevate themselves in the process.  A person of genuine goodwill celebrates your successes and is happy for your happiness.

3)  What strong beliefs does the person voice and live through their actions?  Character means standing for what you believe in and living your beliefs.  Go along and get along might be comfortable, but commitment is what powers effective action in the world.[..]hree-powerful-measures-of-character.html

4 ways of treating problems
Absolution: Ignore the problem and hope it either fixes itself or someone else solves it. Default.
Resolution: Either look to the past for previous solutions to the same problem OR identify and remove the causes of the problem. Satisfice.
Solution: Analyse using quantitative methods and / or experimentation to try to yield the best possible outcome. Optimise.
Dissolution: Eliminate the problem and prevent it from arising again by redesigning the system that has the problem or its containing system. Idealise.[..]2012/06/4-ways-of-treating-problems.html

思考的必要態度:同情理解原則 -

Critical thinking is an unnatural act. We evolved to survive in a cruel world, not to play around with our hacks. To make things worse, we evolved in a herd, which means that we intuitively respect the authority of the leader. But we also have to be creative, so we have to respect ourselves first. Finding the right dose of self-respect is a crucial thing in creative work. Too little self-respect could destroy our motivation and creativity, and too much will interfere with our ability to estimate the value of our ideas, and can easily result in investing time, money and effort in worthless projects.

Noone is born a critical thinker, but almost anyone can become one. Think about what [Edward de Bono] said:

“The need to be right all the time is the biggest bar to new ideas. It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong than to be always right by having no ideas”.[..]and-creative-thinking-in-a-hackers-work/

转谈艺术。艺术当然要讲技术,不容易,要多下功夫。论技术,我认为艺术比科学重要。一位技术超凡的画家,想象力不足道,其作品可以卖得起钱。有大成的艺术家呢?单凭技术不足够,加上想象力超凡也不足够——不可或缺的是感情的表达。后者是艺术的主要困难所在。科学是不需要表达感情的。 -[..]/dope-i-should-have-thought-of-that.html
