It has been a long while since I last saw so few people using Apple products in a conference venue. Black laptops, mostly from Lenovo, seem still popular.

DebConf 2018 is coming up on July 28 in Hsinchu, Taiwan. It will last for more than a week. Here is the schedule:

「藍晒圖文創園區」這地方原是舊台南監獄的宿舍區。西門路對面,現在是百貨公司、大飯店的地方,就是舊台南監獄的所在,日治時期稱「臺南刑務所」。老台南人晚上其實不是很喜歡來這裡,說是陰氣太重。監獄不遠處走路可到,是原台南地方法院(現在是古蹟了)。維基百科網頁上,可以找到日治時期受刑人從監獄被提領出來,面幪手銬,押解到法院受審的照片。西門路再遠一點是南山公墓,最後一程,可就不是用走的了。

「藍晒圖文創園區」的網站,對這地方的過往一字不提。失憶的時代,也就無所謂遺憾吧。這些照片也不是故意要拍得暗暗的,不好打閃光燈是了。

The online magazine New Bloom is running a crowdfunding campaign! I have followed this site for quite some time. Here are two links to the writings on the site. Commentary and interview like these from the New Bloom, I feel, are badly needed by both Taiwan and the world.

這裡放上兩個連結,《破土》的這些評論與專訪,我覺得台灣與世界都非常需要。

"This dates back to at least 2017, but it's not clear if this were the case when the Taiwan flag was first added to iOS. The same removal of the emoji applies to all of Apple's platforms in China: iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS."

via Wardle's blog post:

"Basically, Apple added some code to iOS with the goal that phones in China wouldn't display a Taiwanese flag," Wardle says, "and there was a bug in that code."

昨晚經過丹波,店老闆說只營業到週日(2018-07-08),覺得很可惜。這餐廳跟親友來過幾次,位於青年路近鐵路平交道旁的小巷邊上,一對中年夫婦經營的,台式家庭料理非常合胃口。餐廳是老屋,所在的大庭院相隔十步不遠處,還有一家 Free Will 沙發酒吧,店裡外都是電影道具、人像巨偶。去年夏天一晚跟孩子來過,都很喜歡。

在丹波用餐時,戶外火車經過,空隆空隆的低沉聲響傳到屋內,常讓我感到時空錯置,身旁有老友時尤是。店老闆夫婦之前說過,這房子是位醫師蓋的,老醫師過世後,幾年前子女連土地賣給建商。建商在鐵路地下化前的空檔,把房子出租給他們。現在要收回了。
