前两天看到赵泉山点评陶渊明《饮酒》诗中”栖栖失群鸟“篇,说”此诗讥切殷景仁、颜延之之辈附丽于宋“,不免感慨。此诗明明是作者以孤鸟自喻,选择托身”孤生松“,而不需要与世间同流合污。《饮酒》中还有一首”青松在东园,众草没其资。连林人不觉,独树众乃奇“,所以怎么会拿青松来比喻权贵?此诗意境高远,悲旷中又有安然,深得我心。然而超脱如此诗,也要被庸人强扯到政治上面,真是可笑又可悲。

Had a try with PhotoPrism (photoprism.app/) today. It works pretty good! It' super fast compared to NextCloud. And has more features like object recognition, searching and a map to show where the photos are taken. Even though the object recognition is not perfect but I believe it will improve. Also looking forward the face recognition feature.

夜来明月上高楼,我亦随之望九州。
塔上霓虹分五色,湖中桂树映千舟。
车如流水何曾尽,人若营蝇未见休。
灯火似星星似海,此生常问吾何求?

感觉聊斋从某种程度上说可以算是古代的爽文小说了。昨天看了一篇《神女》,很有点这个意思

Migrated all my docker scripts to docker-compose. Looks much cleaner.

Compared to China, the online banking in Canada is really stupid

Added 2 self hosted services during the holiday: Novidrome for music and Firefly-iii for personal finance management. Planning to migrate all of my Docker scripts to docker-compose.

喷薄的热气,
在高楼上盘旋,
在雪的荒原中消逝。

During the long vacation, read the book "The Buried: An Archaeology of the Egyptian Revolution", and wrote some Scala code using cats effect IO. Very happy about both of the things.

Just after I migrate all my read books to Good Reads, it decided to close the API. Sigh...

Bought a new 8TB hard drive for backup. With ZFS, it's so easy to do backups: it can do the snapshot, compression, increment send/recv, encryption and so on.

人在天涯远,楼高望晚空。
浮云托海市,赤日照苍穹。

最近需要用 QQ,研究了一大圈,发现 Linux 下最好的方案还是 Windows 虚拟机 + TIM。现在真的不太能忍的了 QQ 这种臃肿的软件

Watched some TV shows and read some reviews about them. Some people cannot even recognize the characters' thoughts/view is not the director's thoughts/view. How pathetic it is.

Spent the whole morning to move from Douban Book to Goodreads. The deprecation of Douban API finally made me to do the decision. There are also some other reasons: the lack of English book reviews and missing book because of political reasons. Will write a Jekyll plugin fetch books to my blog.

Finished the book Digital Minimalism. Good book overall. I love the first and last chapter most: the first chapter introduces the hacking of big Silicon Valley companies to let people use the products more. The last one introduces the attention economical. I think the author should focus more on the scientific facts and researches like this instead of individual stories. Especially some people's life style that I cannot totally agree.

Got another Yubikey today as a backup. Physical key is really a great idea. Too bad some software still don’t support that. Especially matrix/element.

曾经有人出上句“我有一壶酒,可以慰风尘”,前两天又看到有人点评各种续作。今天突发奇想,也来续一首。

我有一壶酒,可以慰风尘。
疏星四五点,知己二三人。

I don’t get why the idea of universal income is so popular. The poor people need opportunities of job and education, not a low income. Universal income reduces motivation for poor people and increases tax for middle class. It’s not good for anyone except politicians.
