If you compare crossover office with WINE, immediatelly you know the difference. Codeweavers really do a good job. I can install IE 5.5 and access to our intranet application without any problem now.

My colleague ask me this morning, can I use Internet Explorer on my linux system?
I say, "Can not.".
Then she ask again, "How do you access to our intranet application?"
I answer, "I have 2 PC!" (1 install linux, the other is Windows 95)
I think over again, actually I can use Internet Explorer in my linux, just too lazy to try. I get the crossover office about a month ago, but too busy to try out, crossover office is just like WINE, a window emulator on linux. Why don't I give it a try.
I did download and try to compile WINE before, but no luck. This time before trying the crossover linux, I will try the WINE again. I download the binaries, luckily there is rpm for mandrake10. I just install a libstdc++ libraries, everything install just fine.
I try to install the Office97 and ie5.5. I can't install the ie5.5, is a common problem, stop at about 75%. Ofiice97 can be installed without much problems, excel is not working, winword can be launch. Anyway this version of Word is buggy.
I heard crossover office can support IE, will try next time.

Yesterday went to Nasmic office, take a close look at the cobalt qube 3 server. A very nicely design and well integrated unix machine(shoule be running linux). Sun bought Cobalt it for 2 billion USD! in year 2000, now the product is no more continue. Community support is here.
There is 1 Sun Blade 100 (this is too old, something similar here) and another 3 Sun Ray 100 terminal sitting there, not many people know how to use it.

Went to Starbucks with Richard. We like Starbucks for different reason. He love it for the lifestyle, I like it for broadband access. Since I already get my broadband access at my place, the reason has just gone for me.
We went there last night because we have a coupon, buy 1 free 1. The price now keep increase, quite expensive, but buy 1 free 1 is still ok. Richard ask for more, he ask the manager for dessert discount too, he is a regular customer, so he can ask for discount.
When the new manager heard, he got a shock, discount!? No such things. Then the counter lady told the new manager, Richard always get discount for dessert, so he get some discount for the dessert too!

Try firefox 1.0 browser today. Suddenly something just came into my mind.
So I talk to kf and swk while having coffee in Long Black at night. I have an antique IBM PC. Yes, it really from IBM not just compatible, is a 486 SX(yup, no coprocesser) 66 (it suppose to be a 33Mhz and double it into 66). With 8M Ram, I added in another 8M Ram, now I have to total of 16M, and a 420M CPU.
I am going to upgrade to software, make firefox-1.0 to run on that machine. Please don't laugh, it may work. I want it to support truetype font as well.
Kf have a 386SX machin in early 1990s, with 1M ram, 40M HD(and he install stacker software to double it), it is capable to run windows (v3.1) with EMS enable and play Romance of Three Kingdom(KOEI Game) too.

今天心血來潮， 就把我的 Mandrake 10 加入 xcin 中文輸入法系統．
首先下載 xcin-188.8.131.52 原始碼
$ tar xzvfp xcin-184.108.40.206.tar.gz $ cd xcin-220.127.116.11 $ ./configure --prefix=/usr $ make $ make install 若 msgfmt xcin-zh_TW.po 有問題，可能是 xcin-zh_TW.po 內有 \ 因為舊版的 gettext 在處理一些中文字會有問題，所以會加入 使用 xcin : $ export XMODIFIERS=@im=xcin （一些版本使用 XMODIFIERS=im@xcin ） $ LANG=zh_TW.Big5 gedit & $ LC_CTYPE=zh_TW.Big5 xcin & 這樣子就可以了，簡單．
