看到有人稱讚 Obsidian 為筆記軟體工具的方便好用。顯然自己長年來被”工具”迷惑,明明知道閱讀、寫作思考、行動作為才是硬道理,卻始終按不下好奇心無頭盲目地嘗試這方面的各種應用軟體工具。

例如之前曾經: [[利用 coda 整理讀書筆記 I]] 用 coda 整理讀書筆記 I [[用 coda 整理讀書筆記 II]] 用 coda 整理讀書筆記 II [[Notion 讀書筆記]] Notion 讀書筆記

表面上看起來現在好像是使用 notion 作為筆記工具,但實際上自己對 notion 的依賴不大,更常使用的反而是 writefreely 的草稿匧。因此看到 Obsidian 免費版無須註冊帳號故也不提供各台設備同步與網路發佈功能,自己不免有所遲疑,這似乎不符合當下多數人在不同場合利用多台設備登入”雲端”的操作。

Obsidian 目前僅支援桌機下載安裝而非透過瀏覽器環境運行,手機版尚在開發試用階段。衝著它支援 windows/linux /macOS 跨平台,我決定還是下載來玩玩。 ![[Pasted image 20210625103118.png]]

單從它的寫作介面,似乎和其它的 markdown 編輯工具沒什麼差別,但其最為愛用者稱道的是其”graph view” 功能,透過 tag, 文章之間的內部連結引用等,呈現使用者文件筆記間的關聯強度。因此我下載了在 personaljournal 累積的一百七十多篇短文日記,把這些文件在 Obsidian 稍作初步整理,大概可以得出以下的關係圖。(目前的關係仍是以”tag”為主,因為文件搬回到電腦後,還沒能細緻地整理文件之間的聯結。但在Obsidian 底下,要建立內部文件連結很容易,只要打 [[ ]]在雙方型括號輸入文字, Obsidian 即會自動代為挑出候選的本地文件)。其寫作環境預設三欄式的介面下,也可以從工作中文章的右側看到此篇文章與其它文章(曾提及或是出現”關鍵字”)之關聯。

![[Pasted image 20210625103906.png]]

這篇文章即是直接利用 Obsidian 來寫作,再”轉貼到” personaljournal。免費版不提供異設備之間的同步功能,雖然勉強可利用 google drive, dropbox 來自救,不過比較麻煩的是若要發佈到網路上,則文內提供的它文連結與圖片都要再重新整理。

粗粗地使用了半個上午不到的時間,總體而言感覺還不錯(尤其只是純粹的打字、整理文件連結),如果未來長期使用的話,或許也代表 web 2.0 以降用部落格、social media 寫(公開在網路發佈)日記這回事,會再次內縮回歸純個人單機的角落。

Earth-like biospheres on other planets may be rare

This is an interesting article on Science Daily. Seems that the conditions on Earth could be far rarer than we think. [1] So we are looking for Earth Like atmospheres, the JWST will really help push this research forward.

Please feel free to discuss further on discourse [2]l. I have also included a link to a infographc, on atmosphere composition in our own solar system [3]

Comment and questions on this.

I just wondered what the range of conditions could support life, for example is there a minimum and corresponding percentage range for Oxygen for example. The same would go for other gasses for example Nitrogen, $CO_2$ etc. Hopefully we can learn more about what is needed for life, so we perhaps increase our chances of finding possible habitable words. This, of course is assuming all life requires Oxygen We have found life in or near volcanoes on Earth, conditions are very hot, and inhospitable to humans generally, not to mention the Sulfur Dioxide and other toxic gasses.

I will try and look in to this further.

Holla holla holla!

I'm still alive. Not coming back for a while, but I thought I'd just stop by and get some stuff off my mind.

Today is Snana Yatra. Bathing ceremony of Lord Jagannatha, Baladeva and Subhadra. Some interesting things happened today. First of all, I had some guests. Two of my old friends dropped in to say hello and see how I was doing. I'm doing just fine. It's been a long while. I actually cut off contact because one of them showed duplicitous behavior. I was always wary about getting anyone close to me but when I saw that he was actually trying to take advantage and con me, well, I had to let go. It always amuses me when people think I'm too stupid to notice their crooked behavior. I grew up in a cult. I learned to observe and ignore crooks all my life. Do they think I just don't know anything?

Speaking of cults, I got a call from a brahmacari today. He was inviting me to the Snana Yatra festival at the temple, which I politely declined. I know most of them think I've got a huge ego. But this isn't about my pride. This is about right and wrong. I was right. They were wrong. End of the story.

I'm no longer willing to associate with a religious cult which beats down humility into their members so they can take advantage of them. All religions are cults. That's the truth. And that's the problem. All religions require their members to be humble and obedient and polite so they can walk all over them. These are the same religions whose senior leaders have some of the biggest egos on the planet. So the top guys want to act like a bunch of cunts and rule over the multitudes while anyone who questions their character and authority is immediately branded as a sinner.

I'm not humble anymore. Humility is a weakness. When you're humble, people treat you like shit, like you're worthless. But get some fucking dignity and get some pride, and wallah! You're in demand! I like to play it by the eye. My personality changes according to people's attitude and behavior. If you wanna be a cunt, fucking let's go. Step your game up. What are you willing to do? How far are you willing to go? 'Cause I ain't got much to lose. This is exactly how the material world operates. This is how all the cunts rise to the top. Every top man/woman that you see today, has been a cunt to someone. And I for one, have had enough of this humility and tolerance bullshit! The more you keep up with people's oppressive and indignifying nonsense, the worse it's gonna get. If you don't speak up for yourself, nobody else will. If you don't stand up against your oppressors, nobody else will.

I made khichri today, ISKCON style. It smelled exactly the same. But the taste wasn't quite there yet. I made a few mistakes, which I will correct the next time. My cooking's going great. I'm almost reaching the expert level. More on that in my other journal. Yeah, I found another site to offload my daily rants and opinions. So I've reserved this site for my religious rants and scheduled entries. I also shifted my tech blogs to another site. Now everything has it's own place. I like the organization better than dumping all content in one place.

I'm working on some big projects and they'll be coming out in bits through the rest of the year. I've also got some plans for next year, so hopefully, things will finally happen. Fingers crossed.

International coalition calls for action against surveillance-based advertising

Interesting article, this fightback has now started, there is hopefully no going back and we will see an end to all this tracking, advertising and other unwanted nonsense.

**Groups in Europe and U.S. ask for action to end practices that threaten citizens’ rights. **

` Every day, consumers are exposed to extensive commercial surveillance online. This leads to manipulation, fraud, discrimination and privacy violations. Information about what we like, our purchases, mental and physical health, sexual orientation, location and political views are collected, combined and used under the guise of targeting advertising. You can read the full article at [1]. I have also included a link to a Discourse thread as well as a link to the Data Detox kit.

Design the 2021 LibreOffice Conference Logo

Our next LibreOffice Conference will take place from September 23-25, 2021 (and it’ll be online, due to the ongoing pandemic situation). LibreOffice developers, supporters and users from around the world will share their work, ideas and suggestions. And we’ll have fun with online social events and more!

But we need a logo. For last year’s conference, we had a competition and Kukuh Syafaat from Indonesia won with this great design, which includes the openSUSE logo too, as it was a joint conference:

上週讀完這本《2019-2020香港運動全紀錄》,帶著讀者回顧了 2019年香港波瀾壯闊的民主運動。這場運動表面上的起點火是反對中共〈逃犯條例〉修訂,但更廣更大的舞台背景則是來自”回歸”後,中港兩地不同的治理系統與人民對於權利自由的想像信仰落差,特別是中國第五代領導在三十年經濟開放改革後浮現的社會問題卻加大政治緊縮力道打壓公民社會與權利意識伸展的土壤,這整個歷史推力與現實壓縮進一步刺激了香港人民對無賴中國政權之失望覺悟。

讀此書於我最大的收獲在於學習認識香港的近代政治發展歷程,其議會(立法)與行政制度,特別是所謂民主派、建制派以及民間民主社團等等的角色行為者的問題(例如他們與議題、與民眾、社區、與 CCP 的關係)。了解這些歷史淵源與脈絡後,才明白之後的城邦論港獨、左膠合理非非、佔領中環、雨傘運動等之間的權力糾葛,以及延伸到 2019年年中開始,讓我目不暇給的反送中運動。

在運動事件為進行式當下,我個人是很難在短時間內消化各方消息來捕捉其瞬息變化微貎。唯有透過事件看似平息告一段落,我才能吸收一些記錄回顧文獻。後人來看所謂的”記錄”之作,或許有人會嘆息後悔當時某一個決定或動作之有無強度,或許有人想從經驗教訓中學習應對未來的策略。老師說讀史學史的重點在於讓今人掩書思考若自己面臨類似的情境時,會作出何種選擇其理由何在。香港人在 21 世紀作過的抗爭,當是給一水之隔、金魚記憶容量的台灣人一點反省才是。

Od marca 2019 roku mam dowód osobisty z warstwą cyfrową. Korzystam z niego do logowania się na rządowe platformy w rodzaju EPUAP. W warstwie zawarty je także podpis osobisty. Jest to podpis cyfrowy, ale nie kwalifikowany. Czasem podpisuję za jego pomocą dokumenty.

Zazwyczaj podpisuję pliki PDF za pomocą aplikacji eDo App na iPhone. Da się to zrobić, ale wymaga pewnych dodatkowych czynności. Plik przygotowany w edytorze tekstu muszę wyeksportować do formatu PDF, potem przesłać na iPhone, uruchomić aplikację, wybrać plik, podpisać i wysłać z powrotem do komputera. Pomyślałem, że ułatwię sobie życie.

Zamówiłem czytnik kart inteligentnych firmy Reiner. Pobrałem oprogramowanie do zarządzania dowodem osobistym i podpisywania plików. Każdy pobrałem dwukrotnie, bo chciałem mieć oprogramowanie zarówno na MacBooku, jak i na laptopie z Windows. Niestety – aplikacje okazały się być kompletnie niedostępne dla mojego czytnika ekranu. Siedziałem nad tym kilka godzin, żeby wykminić, co mogę zrobić. W końcu się poddałem i ruszyłem na poszukiwania innego rozwiązania.

Najpierw szukałem sam, a potem zacząłem rozpytywać ludzi, czy znają jakieś alternatywne oprogramowanie. Okazało się, że nie ma takiego. Nie ma, bo ten podpis nie jest zgodny ze standardami.

Wydawcą oprogramowania jest Państwowa Wytwórnia Papierów Wartościowych (PWPW). Zadanie realizowała zaś na zlecenie Ministerstwa Spraw Wewnętrznych i Administracji (MSWiA). Postanowiłem napisać do PWPW w sprawie braku dostępności i to za pomocą platformy EPUAP. Pomimo intensywnych poszukiwań nie znalazłem skrzynki PWPW. Postanowiłem zatem wysłać pismo do MSWiA.

Poinformowałem, że oprogramowanie nie jest dostępne. Zapytałem dodatkowo o poprawienie tego oprogramowania, wskazanie innego lub plany na zaoferowanie nowszego, choćby i webowego. Mają 14 dni na odpowiedź, więc czekam. Co znamienne – to oprogramowanie nie podlega ustawie o dostępności cyfrowej stron internetowych i aplikacji mobilnych podmiotów publicznych, więc nie mogę złożyć żądania lub skargi. Mogę tylko pytać i prosić.

這兩三週大概就是一直反覆地背彈巴赫初級鋼琴曲的第一、二首,BWV Anh 115 記得差不多了,但練彈時多少有點疑慮遅緩,但還算有點餘力可以練下一首曲子,便開始先試練 BWV Anh 116 右手部。

乍看 BWV Anh 116 樂譜,直覺並不難,只是曲式長度拉大(BWV Anh 115 四行)。標題底下的樂曲練習重點提示説:A study in the arpeggio of the Common Chord 因為是 G 大調,按古典樂作曲規律主要伴奏和弦應是大量使用 G大調和弦(GBD),而 arpeggio (分指和弦)就是把共彈的和弦音組合改為個別音符表現,因此在這支曲子裏可以看到許多 GBD 的排列變化。

例如在曲子前半部除了紅色打勾與框線處外,都是以G大調和弦GBD三種音符為主,所以並不難背。至於後半段部份,最後一行與第二行差不多一樣(除了紅框處的差異),但第三行、第四行則是比較讓我頭痛的部份,練彈過兩三回尚無法察覺出這二行有什麼和弦規律曲式邏輯,所以只好先靠苦練強記,大概花了三~四天的時間才把它背起來。
