舊週記

隨意玩玩,竟然就把2001-2005的舊週記全部匯進blog了。比想像中的簡單;本來是想要把舊週記的文字檔寫程式轉成RSS 2.0再用匯入功能的,不過後來發現這樣的話文章代稱(slang)會弄丟;最後用EmEditor取代功能 —— 可以用Regular Expressions —— 把文字檔轉成SQL指令丟進來。

Regular Expressions 真是好物呀… 感動*。

匯進來之後發現圖片破掉了,還有以前的文章有不符現在xHTML的用法之類的(例如我以前都沒用<blockqoute>引用文字而是用 inline style);於是靠匯出SQL把文字做批次取代在 UPDATE 回去把這些東西修掉。

應該說… phpMyAdmin是好物這樣嗎XD。

未來不需要再做這些麻煩的轉換了;XHTML,WordPress能把所有文章parse成RSS2.0讓其他程式利用。想當年第一次可是手動把一百多篇文章的\r\n\r\n換成</p>呢說,真沒效率。

來說說內容:第一篇文章是2001年4月寫的,最早是放在某日記CGI程式上,被轉了3次所以文章內容很早以前就不符了(2001年當然沒有WordPress可以用)。這幾年的文章加起來有206篇,涵蓋了甄選上高中和申請到大學的軌跡;中間斷了半年就是了。

順應這篇週記的最後一句話的想法,用搜尋算了一下:blog 內目前有 251 篇文章,其中94篇文章含有「其實」、226篇文章含有「」。不知道有沒有其他我用的比「其實」還要頻繁但是沒有自覺的單詞。

嗯,那些文章的回應都關掉了;robots.txt也設了。沒事不要跟過去的提姆聊天,現在的提姆不一定喜歡這件事。

Will Kyoto Protocol succeed?

Question:

Do you think the international efforts to decrease green-house gas emission through Kyoto Protocol will be successful? Please give your reasons.

My Opinion:

I think the effect of Kyoto Protocol is limited. Unlike CFCs with literally no ecomony harm, nations which sign Kyoto Protocol would have to spend money on various espects (from research to cut-down fuel usage) to reduce green-house gas emission. With that, many big nations refuse to sign it.

The other reason I think is that we don’t know how much emission we need to reduce to ensure that we are safe from “the day after tomorrow” scenario. Is 1950 even enough? or even pre-industry standard (which is none)? 1990 level defined in Kyoto is nothing but a balance result from economy consideration and fear from the mother nature (with scientific “guesses”.)

Kyoto goal will be hard to reach; even it’s done eventually, the actual effect on global warning is still questionable.

Mark:

18/20 without check mark. The teacher thinks I didn’t buy what he thought and believed (I think.)

Global Change and Sustainable Development is one of the few courses that is conducted in English in our school. In this lesson, Prof. Chao-Han Liu talks about stories of Ozone Hole, Green House Gas and Global Warming, Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, etc. This is one of the questions asked on mid-term.
