牛耕田,馬食穀

Friday, 28. July 2017

朋友送來廣東諺語一首,珍藏。
一首應該是幾十年前的絕妙粵諺,沒有一字粵俚,但肯定是廣東話的至高境界:

牛耕田,馬食穀,老竇賺錢仔享福。
象行田,馬行日,過河卒仔不退縮﹔
兵殺敵,將閃縮,功成身退享俸祿﹔
男善變,女易哭,貧賤夫妻難和睦﹔
流水清,死水濁,人望高處無滿足﹔
冰易化,錢難蓄,巧婦難煲無米粥﹔
水維生,土長木,光合作用葉變綠﹔
賭易學,書難讀,賭仔何曾買大屋?
命注定,運難卜,三衰六旺好難捉﹔
仙灑脫,凡人俗,犯規和尚食狗肉﹔
陽壽盡,落陰谷,生老病死乃定局。

羣之銘

得友送來羣之銘一文

​【羣之銘】

羣者,以情會友,以誠待友,以實交友。朋友相聚,本于缘,增于份。無遠近之分,無貴賤之别。君子相交,清淡如水,馨香若菊。不以位尊而趨附,不以位卑而疏遠。

朋友之交,習之以長。正所謂,尺有所短,寸有所長。大凡君子,見賢思齊,從善如流,求同存異。不以異見而憎,不以特性而惡。海納百川,有容乃大。君子也,同道而謀之,非同道而習之。察纳雅言,咨諏善道。君子也,非同類而同性。以水為師,效其澹泊;以竹為友,慕其虛懷。近朱者赤,近墨者黑。與君子交,如水,如竹,如谷,如菊。

今之羣也,藏龍蛟,卧虎豹,棲鳳鸞,遨鯤鵬。人才濟濟,才華耀庭。故言有雅俗,音有宫商,不為奇也。

羣之大,不過森林一葉。人之大,不過滄海一粟。故,人以謙卑為懷,方能成其大;以厚德爲基,方能載其物。​

fatcow ftp and microsoft movie maker

Friday, 19. May 2017

I have experienced a very weird problem when uploading a video file through filezilla ftp to fatcow’s ftp account.

As I upload one video file called flower.mp4 to my mp4 folder, this file will be removed as the upload is completed. I have tried many times, possibly ten times or more and with some testings. Call fatcow support but in vein. They cannot tell. Once they said the file is corrupted but I can open it locally without problem.

I tried to rename and and upload, same problem. I tried to upload to another folder, still the same.

Very frustrated. It took at least 10 minutes to upload a file of that size and it disappeared. Exists for just a minute or so.

I tried upload a converted file in ogg format and it will be fine. The file will remain there and same for other video file. Just this one, OMG, why?

After several tests like convert it to various size using Microsoft Movie Maker and upload. This problem hold true except when I convert the file using VLN with various format like youtube, android etc even though the file still in mp4 format, as it is a video container. The converter possibly the same for both video and audio.

I cannot tell the problem is fatcow problem and possibly it is the main culprit. Microsoft Movie Maker conversion will have something to do with this situation.

Very likely after the upload, fatcow scans the file and determines corruption in file and removes it. This is one of many that I do not like fatcow.com.

人生

Wednesday, 22. March 2017

友人寄來一首小詩"短","短"來自翻譯 俄羅斯 的一首小詩。

"短"
一天很短,短得來不及擁抱清晨,就已經手握黃昏!
一年很短, 短得來不及細品初春殷紅竇綠,就要打點素裹秋霜!
一生很短, 短得來不及享用美好年華,就已經身處遲暮!
人生總是經過得太快,領悟得太晚,所以我們要學會珍惜,
珍惜人生路上的親情、
友情、同事情、同學情、
朋友情與戰友情。
因為一旦擦身而過,也許永不邂逅!

到了人生的最後階段,總想給後輩一些忠告。

但青年人的心態不易改,他還像夏蟲不可以語冰,還未到這年紀或階段。!

繁囂中的寧靜、亂世中的忠臣、燦爛裏的平凡,都是最珍貴!
