  • Baidu MP3搜索

    Posted on November 28th, 2007 wt8008 1 comment

    我前几天发现在海外不能用百mp3搜歌词、mp3。尝尝搜任何东西,结果都没有结果。我问过几个朋友,都是一样的结果,我在问一个国内的IRC友,他说他没有什么问题。

    这是什么时候开始的?怎么会这样?

    我用amarok有一个脚本是搜歌词,在amarok的左手面会出正在播放的歌的歌词。那个脚本会自动搜Baidu,所以我现在麻烦了。脚本的作者让用户搜其他网站,可是是手动的,所以不好用。:(

    Edit: Found out that Germany is also affected by this ban from http://shanghaiist.com/2007/12/07/baidus_mp3_sear.php

    Using Baidu MP3 to search for lyrics is still disabled, as with searching for mp3’s for international users in the US or Germany.

  • Apploc

    Posted on September 4th, 2004 wt8008 No comments

    I wished I found this program out earlier since I have programs from the mainland and some from HK and runing both of them at once is a big mess. Since mainland uses GB and HK uses Big5 it doesn’t work out well, but apploc allows me to run a program in a different codepage than the system deafult.

    Google and Chinese New Year

  • Chinese New Year

    Posted on January 21st, 2004 wt8008 No comments

    It was New Year in China this morning at 8 AM. If you were watching CCTV you could see the show on it. I think it would be replayed tonight on channel 26.

    Some phrases:
    新年快乐
    xin1 nian2 kuai4 le4 – san1 nin4 faai3 lok6

    恭喜发财
    gong xi fa cai – gong hei fat choi

    $$$ for me… college is expensive I would be able to afford 2 more pages in a book.
