Chinese new year is full of these things, but I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Luckily I found a place in Tsim Sha Tsui that hand lanterns hanging high above us in the night sky, and I could isolate them if I zoomed in enough. I tried to play around with the crazy perspectives and tried to get some interesting abstract shots and here and there.
Honestly, I don’t think I got great shots this time round, but… I will next time.
Everyone here is obsessed with making it big, buying a home, and getting rich. No one really notices the l’il guys that are just making ends meet. We read about them in the paper, or see them in the news, or sometimes an artsy photo showing them in a cage home or something… but they’re everywhere…
I learned photography from my friend Pete. He told me which camera to get, guided me on photography. Reviewed my photos and helped me learn a lot about cameras, composition and other things… He passed away not too long ago, and I haven’t really worked on my photography since he was gone…
I was playing with XWiki’s Wysiwyg editor’s settings the other day/ I added the font plugin, and then went to the toolbar and aded in the fontname and fontsize features. I hit save, and browsed to a page, and clicked ‘Edit’. I expected to see two new drop down box in the toolbar, however I was greeted with the exact same toolbar on the editor.
“No problem”, I thought. “I can go to the configuration and see what I did wrong”. So I browsed back to the WYSIWYG section and I was greeted with this:
Now that the options are missing, I CAN’T UNDO IT THE CHANGES I MADE, CRAP!!!
After Googling like crazy, consulting documentation and even logging into IRC and asking for help. I had no choice but to try asking people on the mailing list. I crafted up my help message and sent it out. A few hours later I got help.
Xwiki’s settings are stored as objects on a page, so to manually make the changes, the only thing that’s required is to browse to the right page and edit the text.
In this case the page is called “XWiki.WysiwygEditorConfig”. Appropriately named isn’t it. Usually when the Xwiki users refer to a page, they will give in it the convention “SpaceName.PageName”. This means that the page is located in the “XWiki” space, and it’s named “WysiwygEditorConfig”. To Edit the page, browse to it using the full address:
Once you’re there you have the option to edit the values manually using the object editor. However I prefer to rollback and undo my changes. Then go back to the Administrator section and try to make the changes again. … correctly.
Google TV might be exactly what I’m looking for. It’s designed to control the other settop boxes or your TV, it’s hooked up the TV, it runs applications, it has a browser, It has DLNA, it will work with all your wireless services, and it can do it all using one remote!
What can it not do??? Seriously? 1080p? I’m betting it can!
