Yesterday I saw a post on ubuntu forums. It WORKS. Now Xgl + Compiz work very smoothly and stable. Everyone who has Xgl problem on ati card should give it a try. "playerX", the mysterious gentoo guy, now is my new HERO!

Xgl March 6, 2006

Novell released Xgl and compiz about a month ago. It’s painless to setup them in my AMD64 home pc with a Nvidia FX 5200 graphic card. I’m totally overwhelmed. Among it’s all eye candy features, my favorite is the scale feature. It’s a composite of Apple’s Expose and Microsoft coming Vista’s task switching.

But I never managed to use them in my working notebook with an ATI mobility X300 graphic card. After several nights of trial, I gave up. I think most people who were trying hard on their ATI card have some common feelings:

And the only one you can blame is ati, which doesn’t support open source, and besides doesn’t even provide quality closed source drivers… [quoted from]

Using a photo of baby as the buddy icon in IM is what young parents usually do. I’m not an exception.;-)

The old buddy icon has been in my GAIM (MSN/Google Talk) and Skype for several months. Yesterday, Taotao got several new photos taken. So now it’s the time make a new buddy icon:

It was taken in our living area.

A bug of Gmail February 22, 2006

Sometimes there is a “Reply-To” field in email header. That indicates the mailbox(es) to which the author of the message suggests that replies be sent (quoted from RFC 2822). All the email clients I used before respect this suggestion and take it as the reply to address(es) in reply. But Gmail does not. A workaround is to use Thunderbird via POP3. I have reported this bug to Google.

Several bits about last two weeks February 21, 2006

It’s a little sad that wordpress.com was blocked in the Mainland of China. Fortunately, I still can access it in my office.

  • Taotao did not come back to Shanghai with us when we came back from Ningbo at the end of Spring Festival. So my wife and I can enjoy several days of life. We spent a week end and several evenings on watching the first season of “Desperate Wives”. I would say it’s a good soup opera. There are many interesting quotes from it.
  • Went out having a dinner with my wife in the Valentine’s Day.
  • Taotao came back to Shanghai in the last weekend. So life is full of happies and funs again! A child is gift from God. It’s really true!
  • The last thing is a bug of NetworkManager I found yesterday in Ubuntu Dapper. After one day of investigation I gave up. I reported it first on the Ubuntu forums. The response is very fast. In a few minutes, one user confirmed my issue and filed a bug for me. And in three hours, it got fixed. It’s wonderful!

初一在宁波通过电话线拨号想写个blog,发现上不去,就觉得有种不祥的预感。昨天回到上海,家里的宽带还是上不去。被封无疑了。:-(
