  • 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.

  • mineTex Installed

    I got a plugin from Dahnielson’s blog. The URL for the cgi script that renders the tex images has changed, so then I had to update the URL for the plugin’s php file.

    V = I R

    Seems there is a limit on the usage of that public server, as my second equation gets a message telling me to install mimetex on my own server, perhaps I’ll get one of my friends to host it for me. xD

  • 1.2-1.5GHz Microwave Amplifier Design

    Working on my lab, but my input and output matching networks are not correct, especially my output matching network, since the VSWR is 40. aiya~~ The input one is 3.5 – 6. Something is wrong with my workings with the smith chart. The total gain I get is < 10 dB, but Go (transistor gain) for unilateral case gives 14 dB. xD

  • Gutsy 7.10 fcitx users under English locale

    Posted on November 11th, 2007 wt8008 No comments

    A special change is needed for English locale users

    sudo vim /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodule-files.d/libgtk2.0-0.immodules

    on the last line change it to read

    “xim” “X Input Method” “gtk20” “/usr/share/locale” “en:ko:ja:th:zh”

    This will allow the user to use <ctrl>+<space> to enable typing with fcitx.
