Randy Pausch:如何實現兒時夢想


first part can be skipped

This is amazing, he died of pancreatic cancer in 2008, but wrote a book ‘The last lecture” before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind
In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan , and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "guide to a better life" for his wife and children to follow.
May you be blessed by his insight.


1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
3. Don't over do; keep your limits
4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does
5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip
6. Dream more while you are awake
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.
Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
13. Smile and laugh more
14. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

15. Call your family often
16. Each day give something good to others
17. Forgive everyone for everything
18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6
19. Try to make at least three people smile each day
20. What other people think of you is none of your business
21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you school with,
people you play with, people you work with and people you live with.
Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you.

Ding Ding Mint Candy

At one day, I suddenly heard a familiar sound, ding-ding-ding sound. I immediately knew what the sound was. Then I dashed out to search for it. Eventually I was able to find it at Semenyih Sentral area. It was mint candies. I had been for years not hearing this sound and the sweet and special mint candy which was sold by this guy with his old bicycles. When I was a child, I I always bought this whenever I came across this sound because it needed perfect timing, he coming on irregular time.

The equipments and setup are exactly the same as I had seen during my childhood

I think not many children nowadays have tasted it before since there are many choices as compared to my old days. I am not sure whether this traditional candy business can be survive in this competitive world. I really hope that I'm still able to enjoy this traditional home made mint candy in my future.

Learning ADS

ADS (advance design system) from Agilent.

ADS is a prominent EDA tools for RF circuit design and analysis. Since portable devices like iphone, blackberry, Nexusone are getting hot, RF are the one of the hottest research among integrated circuit.

I got to learn this tool to pick up so RF circuit design although my research is not focusing on RF. Overall ADS is very user friendly and easy to use. I just got one comment, I dislike the default background setting, which is white color. It caused my eyesore after looking at computer screen for hours. I changed it to black color as like in Cadence design environment (ADE).

transient test

intermodulation simulation- two tones test

TOI test (third harmonic interception test) which is to test linearity of a circuit

Impedance matching in the Smith chart
