MY NEW TV – Toshiba REGZA 37C3500P

with 2 comments

  • Screen size and format: 94 cm / 37" / 16:9
  • Resolution: 1366x768xRGB (WXGA)
  • PIXEL PROcessing IV
  • HD ready
  • 2x HDMI 1.3 (incl. HDCP) with 1080p (24/25/30/50/60Hz) / 24p compatible / Lip Sync

  自从签了UnityMedia的3Play合同,就想着去买个正儿八经的电视。虽然PC用电视卡也能收三十来个模拟信号台,心里总不甘心,觉得数字信号被浪费了:好几百个台没法看;要是有个好电视,没事在家还能点个《功夫熊猫》看看。

  之前做了一些调查,传统的CRT不考虑——占地方,搬家的时候累死;因为肯定是要买一个26到37寸之间的,所以LCD是必然之选,Plasma不考虑。记得月初的时候去溜过几家店,也瞅过同事发的几个报价单:那真是贵就一个字,我不敢说两次。受打击之后,自然而然的开始留意二手市场,却总也不太甘心。就这样,半个月左右的时间,一直这么高不成低不就的悬着。

  要做成一件事情就得要天时地利人和各方面的因素协调好。买个彩电也一样,要有想法,有预算,有时间,缺一不可。今天把彩电给买了,其实是个偶然事件。就在自己为价格苦恼的时候,MediaMarkt庆祝德国淘汰葡萄牙,所有200欧以上商品打七五折。刚好打折这几天老板出差,我就闷头呆在MediaMarkt里,作了一番产品调研。最终敲了三个备选:

Philips 37PFL5522DToshiba REGZA 37C3500PSharp Aquos LC32D44论画质,个人感觉(注:我是菜鸟)Sharp和Toshiba强过Philips;尺寸上,Sharp是32寸,其他两款37;论对比度,Toshiba5000:1是最低的……

  省去相关比较,及内心挣扎千余字,最后抱回家的是……
  标题都写了。

Mexicali restaurant

with 2 comments

今天去吃了 Mexicali (http://www.mexicali.de/) 的周日自助餐。很失望,again。

Mexicali是个比较出名的SportBar,每当有重要的赛事,人们总是聚在这里欣赏比赛。
德国和葡萄牙的那场生死之战,我就是在这里和同事一起看的。
当时点了一个烧烤牛排,15欧,味道很一般。可能因为聚精会神看球赛,也没有太在意;
回头想想,也许是因为当时人太多,照顾不周。于是今天就想着再试一次。结果,如开头说的。

9欧一个人的Buffet,价格算合理;相辅相成的,酒水超贵。Buffet菜色不多,
鸡翅、肉排、鸡肉卷、菜卷、烤饼、炒面,大约就这样了;所配的酱有点莫名其妙。
餐馆的服务员好像都没有什么精神,可能是因为餐厅灯光太昏暗的缘故。

Unified Field Theory

by Tim Joseph
程蔚蔚/译

In the beginning there was Aristotle
And objects at rest tended to remain at rest
And objects in motion tended to come to rest
And soon everything was at rest
And God saw that it was boring

当其始也 有亚里士多德
静者恒静
动者趋于静
须臾 万物俱静
上帝视之 甚无聊

Then God created Newton
And objects at rest tended to remain at rest
But objects in motion tended to remain in motion
And energy was conserved and momentum was conserved and matter was conserved
And God saw that it was conservative

于是上帝造牛顿
静者恒静
动者恒动
能量不灭 动量不灭 物质不灭
上帝视之 甚保守

Then God created Einstein
And everything was relative
And fast things became short
and straight things became curved
And the universe was filled with inertial frames
And God saw that it was relatively general
but some of it was especially relative

上帝再造爱因斯坦
万物相对
快者短
直者弯
惰性系充满宇宙
上帝视之 颇相对
然些许甚相对

Then God created Bohr
And there was the Principle
And the Principle was Quantum
And all things were quantified
But some things were still relative
And God saw that it was confusing

上帝又造了波尔
从此有本原
本原为量子
万物皆量子
然其中相对依旧
上帝视之 甚乱

Then God was going to create Ferguson
And Ferguson would have unified
And he would have fielded a theory
And all would have been one
But it was the seventh day
And God rested
And objects at rest tend to remain at rest

是乎 上帝欲造弗之孙
弗之孙应大一统
其论本归万物于一
然 已第七日
上帝
静者恒靜

今天Coffee Break的时候逛MSN,做了一个英语培训公司的测试。
喝咖啡的时候,人的精神不能集中?

你也去玩玩?
