熊猫威武

 
      中信银行A股今天一度涨停,据说跟巴菲特有意参股有关,称“《东方日报》则引述内地财经专家潘大透露,巴菲特拟入股的公司可能是中信银行”。我在《东方日报》上没有找到,只在《太阳报》的网站上搜到了相关报道,其中果然提到,“……市場人士指出,油價居高不下,面對經營環境困難的航空業應不是巴菲特「那杯茶」,相反金融業務乃巴郡的老本行,獲股神青睞機會較大。內地著名財經專家潘大指出,巴菲特擬入股的公司很有可能是中信行。…… 首先,他相信中美早前已就開放金融業達成多項共識,包括人民幣兌換管制放鬆、工行(01398)設紐約分行、與大摩設北京分行同時獲批等,已反映有關共識。此外,中信銀行母公司中信集團早前擬購併美資投行貝爾斯登,反映中信管理層拓展美國業務的決心,故獲巴菲特信任亦屬順理成章。……”
 
      潘大威武!熊猫威武!凡是去年在新水木的股票相关版面混迹过的,也许都会记得"panda100"这个著名ID。从去年泡沫狂热时的被追捧,到今年行情坠落时的被声讨,直至最近某月对水木某名嫒展开的最后一骂,panda100陪伴无数新韭菜度过了一个牛熊转换,也在无数骂战中让水车和潜水员们感到了丝丝快意。如今,"panda100"这个ID已经不复存在;新水木的相关版面上,既没有了“XX威武”的标题,也没有了可供搬板凳看热闹的骂战,而是如同整个市场一样,陷入了彷徨和麻木。
 
      翻开panda100——亦即“潘大”——的博客,他还在努力写着。这篇《巴菲特可能将投资中信银行的股票》,尽管说法和数据都“值得商榷”(潘大说“巴菲特表示,自己在不久前完成了一笔5亿美元的交易,买入了一只中国股票”,然而究竟是已买入还是被拒绝?潘大最初还称5亿美元可以收购中信银行“接近20%”的总股本,只是后来修改了相关文字),但恭喜潘大,他终于迈出了“影响市场”的实质一步(假设今天中信银行的行情真的跟这一传言有关)。水木上有老ID对此评论,“这太荒谬了!”;然而在这个市场里混迹的收获之一,也许就是面对诸多参与者的诸多表演,对其背后的东西能够有所洞察。不论如何,在看到水木版面上有更“新”的新韭菜开始询问“潘大是谁”时,我隐约看到了遗忘的力量,以及下一轮泡沫诞生的希望。

立此存照:只是委屈了陈中

       在温州晚报的这篇报道《改判史无前例 一切大局为重》中提到(假设记者引用的是原话):
 
  “赛后记者采访了中国跆拳道队温籍总教练陈立人,他说,他从事跆拳道十多年了,从未见过比赛结束后还要改判,他还透露跆拳道跟其他项目一样,场上裁判的判决是最终的判决。那中国队未何不提出申诉呢?陈立人说,完全是为了比赛能圆满结束。‘如果我们提出申诉,比赛就不能按时完成,这就会影响大局,我们是东道主啊。如果这场比赛是在外国比,我们肯定会提出申诉的。再说中国代表团已夺得了这么多金牌,也不缺这一块金牌。只是委屈了陈中。’
  言语中,陈立人也隐隐透露,裁判有帮英国队的意思,英国队是下届奥运会的东道主,从未夺得过奥运会跆拳道的奖牌,而中国队本届奥运会已夺得一金一铜,为了平衡,也为了英国跆拳道的发展,裁判敢冒天下之大不韪,进行赛后改判。‘如果是赛中改判,以陈中的实力还是有机会扳回来的。当然,我们自己也有不足,如果大比分领先,这2分改判也就无济于事了。’”

老愤青太蔟与宅男宅女

      太蔟——这个常驻新语丝的科学主义老愤青,到底是男是女,我一直很感兴趣。看其文笔,绝对是个男的;但我又隐隐约约记得,有一次其在新语丝上跟人掐架时,暗示过自己是个女的。看完其最新发彪而写的《还原奥运精神》,我忍不住又Google了一下“太蔟 男的 女的”(当然这几个搜索词也许有些白痴),试图找到其究竟是男是女的线索。

      没想到前几条结果依次如下: “上班族成为宅男宅女的危害”,“【男男之爱】还在说“宅男”“宅女”? 现在是同人女的天下!”,“御宅族/宅男/宅女/干物女的日文”……直到第一页的下方,才有了一篇太蔟blog的链接,这也是前三页搜索结果中唯一出现“太蔟“字眼的。我又依次搜了一下“太蔟”、“男的 女的”、“黄钟 男的 女的”、 “(俺的名字) 男的 女的”,结果虽然也有些不靠谱,但也不像这样满眼的”宅男宅女”。也许,Google已经非常智能,对于像太蔟这样天天窝在家里写批判文的老愤青,能自动把他/她跟“宅男/宅女”关联到一起:-)

      (准备写这篇blog前一刻,我才发现,太蔟无疑是个男的,因为他在sina博客的自我介绍中写道,“我爷爷叫黄钟,奶奶叫季夏,爸爸叫林钟,母亲叫孟春,媳妇叫仲秋…….”。我要承认,我的YY彻底破灭了;我还曾经YY他/她就是读研时一位自称经常上新语丝的、说话也很愤青的、但又拥有S型身材的女数学研究员的化身:D)

一场热火朝天的奥运会开幕式

       看完开幕式回到家,已是凌晨1点多。我从冰箱里翻出五包冰牛奶,用不到三十秒的时间倒进肚里。牛奶不解渴,但除了冷冻室的霜,已经没有其他冰凉的液体了。这会儿要是烧开水,只要想想就四肢抽搐。

       整理完照片,凌晨四点呼呼而睡。一直在做梦,不过梦到的不是梦幻般色彩斑斓的飞天,也不是运动员进场时的一圈白裙跳舞小妹妹,而是前天晚上聊天的一兄弟。在艳阳高照的夏日午后,我跑到马路上,拦住他和新婚老婆开着的三轮摩托车,大吼:水,快给我水!

       中午十二点睁开粘不啦叽的眼,立即提上裤衩,撇着拖鞋,迎着桑拿的空气,赶到最近的超市,买一切带水的东西。我一边把四根冰棍,两瓶脉动,半桶农夫山泉挥霍进胃里,一边用竹卷秦人的语调默念:冰—棒—如—衣—服,兄—弟—如—手—足,谁—动—我—衣—服,我—断—他—手—足……

       是的,人民,只有人民才是和平的缔造者。只要看看八月八日下午,各肤色人民在安检口排队进场时的任站任晒,看看八月八日晚上,观众在宇宙最大的桑拿场里,一边甩着膀子上的汗,一边甩着手里的拨浪鼓摇旗呐喊,那些不热爱和平的贱人们就一定会痛哭流涕地说我错了,会爬上玲珑塔以自由落体运动谢罪。

       虽然少数人偶尔也会有些小自私,比如看着是在挥舞丝巾欢迎来宾,其实是在给自己扇风纳凉,但这不正是利用自己的勤劳双手制造风,不给鸟巢运营者添麻烦的表现吗?新闻上说扇子从此会成为一个象征风靡世界,我相信这是一定的。

     (希望开幕式的精彩能让安检时中暑的黑人mm感到安慰。)

Blue Screen of Death on The Opening Ceremony of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games

Aug 11 Notes:

Hey guys, the following photos were taken at the opening ceremony of Beijing 2008 Olympics Games. I was sitting in Sector H, Tier 3, Aisle 534 of the National Stadium (the Bird’s Nest), and the blue screen was on the right position above my head, more than 10 meters away. You can check the Exif info of each photo to see the shooting time.

In the begining I didn’t recognize it as a blue screen because it rotated to a 90º angle and was somewhat far. It stayed there from the middle of the ceremony process to the end, lasting more than one hour since I noticed it. Even now I’m wondering why those on-the-scene operators didn’t handle the crashed computer and left the blue screen displayed for such a long time.

More interesting is that when the man (Li Ning) who finally lit the main torch got down from the air, he passed by this blue screen! Maybe someone near my position (Sector H, Tier 3) had shot a picture which contains the torch, the Li Ning and the blue screen at the same time. So ask your friends to check his/her photos taken at the ceremony :)

Aug.12 adds: ooooops, gizmodo.com (where many readers of this blog just come from) has shown the perfect picture that contains both Li Ning and the BSOD :-) I knew it must exist, I knew it! :D

(click the photos to enlarge)

拍摄于H区3层顶棚,2008.8.8,持续了开幕式的一半时间…

9日更新(点击可看大图):

 

Windows Blue Screen on the Olympics Opening Ceremony of Beijing 2008

10日更新:没想到这么多人关注。又从一堆照片中翻出来一张,就是照片上沿的那块蓝色,不过里边的字看不清了,可以跟上面两张对照着看。其实从开幕式刚开始没多久,我就注意到顶棚有这么一块蓝色;不过因为是横过来的,所以没发觉是蓝屏;后来坐在我右边的一位老兄提醒了一下,我才反应过来,这时开幕式都快结束了。

点击可以放大。

11日补充:李宁点完火炬降下来时,就经过瑞士国旗的左边,而这个蓝屏也就在李宁的左边,可惜我敏感度不高,当时没照下来,要不就成蓝屏照耀火炬了,嘿嘿。谁有兴趣的话,可以在网上征集一下那天在H区3层观看的人拍的照片,看有没有人拍到李宁、火炬、蓝屏同时出现的画面:)

Aug. 12 Add: I just checked the pictures I shot and find something, see the notes.  It seems that the blue screen last at least about 2 hours(from 22:00 pm to 24:00pm).

This is a photo I shot at about 21:00 pm, and there is no blue screen.

 

And then shot at about 22:00 pm, this photo shows a blue edge, which I think is the blue screen. As I said earlier, I didn’t recognize it as a BS until nealy 23:40pm, which is the time I shot the photos posted earlier in this blog.

BTW, I’m not a Jobs’ fan, a Linux geek or a PSer to fake pictures:P And  it is reported that the XPe OS used in this ceremony are part of 120 HES Axon Media Servers, so they can’t be pirated :P

Aug. 13 add: Below is a combination of pictures that may help better understand the different positions. Pic.1 is part of the perfect photo(thanks to the original photographer, you are such a great nerd :-)), Pic.2 is taken from one of the videos I shot when Li Ning got down from the air, and Pic.3 is part of the picture I posted earlier in this blog. The red arrow points to Sweden’s national flag, next to the Swiss. And the green arrow is to a flag that directs to top of the BSOD.

Well, that’s it. And enjoy the Games :-)
 

Aug. 14 add: Well, in my view it’s nothing but funny. I guess it could be software or hardware errors, even not a mistake with Windows but something wrong with third-party devices or drivers. …Anyway, give a good laugh and enjoy the Games :-)

Aug.14 add again: Some people asked me a few questions through email and I would like to quote my answers here. I’m not a tech geek, so my point of view may be totally wrong; and English is not my native language, I just try to express clearly what I think. In short, these photos are just for fun and related with nothing but tech and nerds :-)

- Many internet users say the photos are fake. Do you confirm you took yours during the opening ceremony?

Well, these photos are definitely real and taken during the openning ceremony. You can use some software to see the EXIF info of the photos, to check the shooting times and other original information. For example, one photo contains both the BSOD and the players standing in the center of the Bird’s Nest, and it’s taken at Aug.8 23:50:47. I only resized them and printed some signs (at first even no signs) before putting them on my blog.

I’m not the author of the perfect one that contains both Li Ning and the BSoD. But I believe it’s also definitely real, because I’ve compared it with photos I shot. It’s said the BSOD can also be found on NBC’s video. I believe many other people who sat near my position (Sector H, Tier 3) on that night also shot such pictures, even though they haven’t recognized it or published it.

- What’s your interpretation? Human mistake?

I don’t know the exact version of Windows used in the ceremony and how they control the devices. I guess it could be software or hardware errors, even not a mistake with Windows but something wrong with third-party devices or drivers. It’s not a BSoD screen saver because I’ve compared them :-) I only wonder why it stayed there for a long time, but I think these experienced IT guys on the scene had their own reasons for that.

Anyway, in my view its impact to the ceremony is minor. It’s difficult to see and I believe few people on the spot ever noticed it or cared about it. And the beauty of the ceremony was not affected. Maybe it’s nothing but funny.

Aug.18 add:  Hey guys, these photos are ONLY about a minor and somewhat funny COMPUTER error, NOTHING else. To those who try to use these photos to attack the Opening Ceremony or the Olympic Games, and those who try to use them to attack the Chinese people: LEAVE THIS BLOG and SHAME ON YOU!

Sep. 3 add: everything could crash, so does the Google Chrome :P When I was using it to browse this live space, for some unknown reason it just crashed and said: “哎呀!谷歌浏览器崩溃了。 现在重新启动?”("Oops! The Google browser crashed. Restart it now?") , see the photo on my gallery here :P

见闻录:天堂72个处女的由来

 
    8月4日发生的事,让我想起看过的一篇文章,叫《天堂72个处女的由来》,原文在新语丝上(被盾了,可以用TOR看到),是由gopher翻译的英国卫报2002年1月12日的一篇书评,英文叫《Virgins? What virgins?》(by Ibn Warraq,背景很有趣),评论的书是《The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran》,作者是Christoph Luxenberg
 
    在书评中提到,
    “ …… Luxenberg试图证明,如果我们把《GLJ》里的某些词当作古叙利亚语,而不是阿拉伯语,那么就消除了《GLJ》里的许多含糊的内容。《GLJ》的第44章54节、52章20节、55章72节和56 章22节为忠实的信徒许诺了大眼睛的天堂美女。我们在这里没法深入到Luxenberg的方法的细节,但是它让Luxenberg魔术般地把这些美女变没了,这可能吓坏了所有梦想着在死后得到性赏赐的MSL男性。根据叙利亚的Ephrem的赞美诗,Luxenberg的新的分析认为那应该是“水晶般透明”的白葡萄干”,而不是美目的,甚至是长为处女的天堂美女。Luxenberg认为上下文清楚地表明天堂提供的是食物和饮料,而不是贞节的少女或者天堂美女。
  在古叙利亚语中,hur这个词是一个阴性复数形容词,意思是白色。隐含有“葡萄干”的意思。类似地,《GLJ》中一些章节里提到的长生不老的、象珍珠一样的男青年或者少年——例如第76章19节——其实是对于一个古叙利亚语词的误读,这个词的意思是冷葡萄干(或者饮料),与不信者或者受罚者将得到的沸腾饮料相比,它们的味道会很好。……”
   
     这篇书评的八卦之处姑且不论,这本书的学术争议也放到一边(具体参见该书在amazon上的评论,wiki以及另一篇评论),引用某人所说,“Yes, it’s just 72 white raisins, organic though. I’m afraid those 烈士们 have to munch on delicious raisins and make do with hxxx jxx, provided they don’t actually end up in a very, very hot place.”。
