This is not magazine....but I consider the English in this email of Michael Jones' very sophisticated. It almost deserves to be collected into English textbooks in my opinion.

Just ordered the Prodikey. Hopefully that would enable me to "play musical instrument(s) along with doing Java development"

I guess it might depends on what kind of English you want to improve and what you do with English. For technical stuff, the website I visit regularly is technologyreview.com. They have some decent blogs there too. Some text books are actually very well written, serve well as English tutorial too. The official IEEE journals are of very high quality. For daily English just go to supermarket or street and listen to what people say. If you want to sound like a profound snob, all the current magazines are not good option, you might want to dig stuff which were written at least 150 years ago.

h� h� h� :-)

Well Bollywood films are somewhat getting popular here. I've seen two Bollywood films from TV so far. Though dubbed in German, all songs were still in original language. (I don't watch film from TV that often). One was called "Ich bin immer f�r Dich da", well the staring actress is really gorgeous (Don't know her name though). That film lasted for 3+ hours with loads of songs and dances, I didn't feel it was too long. And I know a few native Gemran people here who really like some Indian composer's work.

Dear Ved,

I saw duplicated filter mapping in your web.xml file. See here:


Maybe you could try to delete the first mapping and keep the second one. In my app I configured the mapping like the second mapping, it works flawlessly.

Dear folks,

the <h ataTable> tag in jsf is extremely good at rendering rows dynamically, but I want to render a report table for a choice question. In my use case, the number of rows are fixed: first row for choice lables and the second row for corresponding votes for each choice. Like this:



The columns to render should be decided in run time, according to how many choice items a quesiton has. And I want to bind a result Map<String, Integer> to the tag....I could of course write my custom renderer or even component to render it, but is there exsiting renderer to do this or any simple way using existing features of standard jsf library to achieve this? Thank you very much for your hint in advance!



Regards,
Ellen

[EFH]: Do you people really all use Windows?



I don't want to use windows, but some school projects require something like "M$ Visio" (ach, give me a break), "M$ Project" (give me another break, I just don't grok it)...they are just windows-only. And for now the google earth and google desktop are also windows-only but I really like these two applications....Microsoft Reader is a nice thing, there are many good free ebooks in MS Reader format available from Universities and the reader really reads with a voice engine plugin.

I have SuSE 9.2 pro installed in the same box, somehow the Oracle 10g client doesn't run right under it, haven't found out how to tweak yet but I need the Oracle thing for my homework....thus the windows desktop....

You have to upload the image file to some web server which doesn't prevent hotlink. We cannot see the image stored in your local machine.

Here's the desktop of my windows box:

I drink green tea made of loose tea leaves everyday but when I do want some strong, short flavour, I drink coffee too.

I guess this is what Mr. Wheaton meant by "whole rolled leaves", it's called "Zhu1 Cha2" in Chinese and literally means pearl-shaped tea leaves. All loose green tea leaves are roasted. The species of the tea trees, the location where the tea trees grow and the process of the roasting make the differences of tea.

Traditionally the most classy tea containers called Zi3 Sha1 tea pot...I don't know what's Zi3 Sha1 in English, but it looks like this:

Some Zi3 Sha1 tea pot can cost thousands of dollars or tens of thousands of dollars. Here is a website dedicated for Zi 3 Sha1 tea pot. All the text are in Chinese but the images are interesting too see. This google query also brings a variety of interesting images.

Besides Zi3 Sha1 tea pot there are also Zhu1 Sha1 tea pot. (Zi3 means purple and Zhu1 means red, no idea what Sha1 is in English, the material "sha1" can make SiO2....). This is an example of Zhu1 Sha1 tea pot:

They can be very expensive too.

Both Zi3 Sha1 tea pot and Zhu1 Sha1 tea pot are said to be able to improve the nuanced aroma of the tea and they both have some good physical characteristics to keep the water temperature right for the tea leaves....

Yes tea is very healthy, especially good for who want to keep fit, for it contains no fat and some OH- substance "scrubs" fat away from the surface of other materials. But one has to be careful about the source of the tea leaves. Because in a few locations, people use chemical materials to keep bugs away from the tea trees....My tea leaves are said to be from high mountains where "no environmental pollution is detected."


Regards,
Ellen

To divide their property, they have agreed on the following algorithm: Every morning, each one may send a letter to the other's lawyer requesting one item of property. Since it takes a day for letters to be delivered, they have agreed that if both discover that they have requested the same item on the same day, the next day they will send a letter canceling the request. Among their property is their dog, Woofer, Woofer's doghouse, their canary, Tweeter, and Tweeter's cage. The animals love their houses, so it has been agreed that any division of property separating an animal from its house is invalid, requiring the whole division to start over from scratch. Both Cinderella and the Prince desperately want the Woofer. So they can go on (separate) vacations, each spouse has programmed a personal computer to handle the negotiation. When they come back from vacation, the computers are still negotiating. Why? Is deadlock possible? Is starvation possible? :roll:

(from Tanenbaum: Modern Operating Systems, 2nd Edition)

Since both the Woofer and Tweeter are animals, starvation is of course possible. When the starving Woofer meets the Tweeter and the Tweeter doesn't escape swiftly enough, a deadlock between Woofer's teeth is also likely to happen.....
