Online game


These days, I try to play online game. The reason I play online game is because I like game hacking (memory editing to edit the game data). But I tried this before for online game, it is different from the offline game. Ordinary memory editing cannot modify the game data. And I searched for some information for online game cheating.

After I got the tools to edit online game, I need to download a free online game first. Suggested from my friend, MU Online is popular. However, after I installed, it has the cheat protection. Therefore, I continued to search for other online game. I played chinese online game before, so I searched for the free online chinese game again.

So, now I am playing ChunQiu Q Legend (tranlsated by me, actually is 春秋Q傳). Though it does not have any cheat protection like MU Online, I still cannot use the cheat tools to edit the game. So, lastly I give up online game cheating. And I continue to play the online game.

Currently, online game is very good (I personally feel it), because it has the anti-addiction system (防沉迷), so that the users cannot spend too much time to play the online game. For example, the ChunQiu I played, I can only spend 3 hours to play per day. After that, the system will tell me I am currently in the tired status, all the experiences the character gain will cut into half, it is meaningless to continue playing.

I like to focus in one game. So, the anti-addiction system is effective for me.

Problem: svchost.exe crashed, lsass.exe high CPU usage, cannot play audio


Today, I got a great problem! First, svchost.exe crashed with the message “The exception unknown aoftware exception (0x0000409) occured in the application at location 0x5b86a3c0”. And this happened when I connected the internet. After the message, I found that my computer was slow down. Then I opened the task manager to see what happened. Then, I found that “lsass.exe” has high CPU usage. This was the problem.

So, I afraid that it was virus. Then I scanned for spyware and virus. But found nothing. So I searched for the solution from internet…

Furthermore, after the svchost.exe is crashed, I could not play any audio file.

The final solution is Windows Update. So, download KB291883, the problem is solved.

I suspect, it was caused by the remote code execution through internet, something like hacked. But this is only the suspicion.

IRC and ChatZilla


I never know that IRC is such powerful thing. I thought that, IRC is only for chatting, just like a chatroom. But I was wrong. Because, I just found that, if you found a correct IRC channel and server that you want, then you can chat and download shared files using CTCP (Client-to-client protocol). And even provide some information such as certain website, certain FTP with username and password, and else, which you cannot find through internet search engine (note: you cannot find them from search engine!!!).

So, for IRC tools, I used mIRC before. But, since I now primarily use Firefox, then ChatZilla is the one.

Creed


About the Creed, it is about what we (or I) believe. Therefore, inside Creed, there is about the Holy Trinity. Besides that, Creed can be separated into twelve parts.

In accordance with an ancient tradition, already attested to by St. Ambrose, it is also customary to reckon the articles of the Creed as twelve, thus symbolizing the fullness of the apostolic faith by the number of the apostles.
(Reference: Paragraph 191, Catechism of the Catholic Church)

To know more about Creed, you can study Catechism.

Mozilla Archive Format (MAF) plugin: Cannot open .mht file


Recently, I found that, I cannot open “.mht” file directly using Firefox. Previously, once I installed Mozilla Archive Format, there is no problem to open .mht file. But now, I just drag and drop a .mht file, it will pop up the “Open with…” dialog. Very incovenient. So I search for the solution from internet. However, I cannot find anything.

Lastly, I go to Mozilla Addons website to search any plugin that can edit MIME. Because I read the forum, they said it is because of the problem of MIME. So I found a plugin, MIME Edit. Yes, using the plugin, I can edit the file type for the Firefox. So, I change the “maf” (Mozilla Archive Format) related data, to “open using default application”. Then, problem solved.

Note: What is “.mht” format? Don’t know whether you know or not. When we are using IE to save a webpage, by default, the saved file will generate a folder which has the same name with the .htm file. And inside the folder, there are a lot of related files, such as image files and .js (javascript) files. So, when you save the file, you can change the file type to .mht file. The .mht file is the archive file of all the .htm, image files and .js files. And, just double click the .mht file, by default, it will be opened by IE. For me, it is very convenient to save the file as .mht, because it is light.

MSN Messenger trojan


Just read the news, there is new MSN Messenger trojan that is spreading now. Be aware of it.

The Trojan is an IRC bot that’s spreading through MSN Messenger by sending itself in a .zip file with two names. One of the names includes the word “pics” as a double extension executable—a name generally used by scanners and digital cameras: for example, DSC00432.jpg.exe. The Trojan is also contained in a .zip file with the name “images” as a .pif executable—for example, IMG34814.pif.

Chance and fate


Some people believe that everything happened by chance according to the probability. Some people believe that everything is happened by fate. What do you believe?

If this world is only worked in probability, that means because by chance, “Big Bang” happened then the world is born.
If this world is only worked in probability, that means my parents were met by chance.
If this world is only worked in probability, that means because by chance, I was born.
If this world is only worked in probability, that means my mind existed because of chance, and all my life on earth is only happened because of probability.

Yes, probability is important. Because it is mathematic and logic. When there is higher probability, there will be higher chance, then it will happen. That is why, we study hard, because the harder we study, the higher probability we can answer the questions in the exam.

Though live in the world of probability, I believe that everything is still happened by fate, because I believe that this world has its Creator.

Just as the bible stories I liked: The Patriarch Joseph, who was betrayed and sold by his brothers, became the hope to save his household from famine; Queen Esther who became the queen of Persia was also the hope to save all the Jewish from the enemies.

However, though I believe that everything is happened by fate, I don’t believe that our decision is always worked according to fate. I mean, our decisions are not always according to His will.

Laptop battery


I got one friend, his laptop is newer than mine. However, the battery is already working bad. The battery will lost the power quickly. But my laptop’s battery still can work about 1 hour plus.

And I just read about lithium-ion battery (which is used in laptop, PDA, and handphone). The following is the quotation from http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/lithium-ion-battery.htm/printable.

Lithium ion chemistry prefers partial discharge to deep discharge, so it’s best to avoid taking the battery all the way down to zero. Since lithium-ion chemistry does not have a “memory”, you do not harm the battery pack with a partial discharge. If the voltage of a lithium-ion cell drops below a certain level, it’s ruined.

Lithium-ion batteries age. They only last two to three years, even if they are sitting on a shelf unused. So do not “avoid using” the battery with the thought that the battery pack will last five years. It won’t. Also, if you are buying a new battery pack, you want to make sure it really is new. If it has been sitting on a shelf in the store for a year, it won’t last very long. Manufacturing dates are important.

So, just try to save the battery life yourself.

Online comic tips


When you read online comic (or online manga), do you find that it is slow to load image when you click the next page? And do you feel incovenient to use your web browser to read comic, because image is small, and cannot scroll the page easily?

Why don’t you download the images and view with your “comic reader”?

To download the images, there are 2 problems.

First problem, which is solvable:
The webpage disallow you to right-click. Disable the right-click disallow you to see the image property, so that you cannot get the filename and the URL address. Filename and URL address are important for this tips. Therefore, your goal is to get the filename and URL address.

To get it, you can use Maxthon 2, which enable you to “copy image url” when you “mouse over” the image. It is very convenient. I don’t know whether IE7 support this or not.

Or you can use Firefox. There are many ways to get the filename and URL using Firefox. I just suggest several ways. Install Image Toolbar plugin, which will provide similar function as Maxthon. Or install Greasemonkey, and then install Anti-Disabler script, so that you can right-click to get the image property.

There are many other ways. You can use alternative web-browser such as Advant Browser. Or install Trixie for your IE so that can install Anti-Disabler script. Or using Firefox and try to read the page source and find the filename and URL address.

Second problem, also the second step:
After you get the filename, you need to check whether the filenames are in sequence or not. If the filename is not sequence, then I think you need to search an alternative online comic website that has the comic you want.

After you found the filename is in sequence, use the downloader that has “batch download” function. I suggest Free Download Manager. Because it provides best batch download I need. Using batch download, you can download the whole sequence of the image. Then, you can read the comic using ComicsViewer which I suggested.

About the sequence, there are 4 things that you need to notice: Start, end, step and wildcard. Start is the first filename. End is the last filename. Step is the next step of the filename, such as increment by 1. Wildcard is the “digit” of the filename.

The example of sequence:

  • 1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, …, 10.jpg – The step will be “1”. Wildcard will be “1”, because it starts from “1” digit.
  • pic001.jpg, pic002.jpg, pic003.jpg, …, pic123.jpg – The step will be 1. Wildcard will be 3, because it start from 3 digits.
  • 000001.jpg, 001002.jpg, 002003.jpg, … – The step will be “1001”, just subtract the filename, you will get this. Wildcard will be 6.

There might be some files not in sequence, which you need to download manually. Please figure out how to do this using Free Download Manager by yourself.

Note: It is quite time consuming to describe step by step. But really hope that this really help.

Comic reviews: Funny comics I had read


There are 2 comics (or manga) that I would like to introduce. They are too funny, that I read and laugh non-stop.

The following order is my ranking from top to down:

  1. High School Girls 女子高生 – Very funny. I think it is shojo manga (girl’s comic). I think it is more suitable for adults. The story talks about high school girls, who study in girls’ high, and how desperate they are. And, if you are a male, you will found that, those girls are really unexpectable when there is no male…
  2. Yakitate! Japan 日式麵包王 – This manga is already completed. I like the main character. A combination of idiot and genius. The supporting character is really funny. The theory inside the story is very logic, but the story is too illogic, especially almost at the end of the comic. The story talks about “roti” (bread).

You can click and read online. It is chinese translation.
