分享 Do you hate writing annual report?
虞左俊 2011-5-6 08:04
I do, every single year, as soon as I am told the annual report is due on May 9th (this year) or 10th (last year). But then, as soon as I start writing it, I feel it is such a good thing that we do pause and think about WHAT I have done in the past year. We all know that time goes by quickly, esp ...

分享 Debug my code, again
虞左俊 2011-2-4 08:08
By now, most additions to the model are introduced by me, including bugs. I caught a big one this morning, related to OMP. It depressed me for about 30 mins, but I am tough, bouncing back like a rabbit. (Well, I wish I could run away from this never-ending project like a rabbit, but I can't.)

Research is nothing but a roller coaster ride
I am sure you would agree with me, if you have been in it for a while. We had a Skype conference call for an hour yesterday. After that, I put in four test experiments. None came out “useful.” There is no other way around but to push forward, even blindly. F ...

热度 2 虞左俊 2011-1-18 08:32
This is a long weekend in the U.S., at least for the staff at the U. Hawaii. I knew I had to work hard this weekend, because I agreed to give a seminar on Thursday and I need a lot of test experiments to decide on our main run (control run) for my talk and for our paper. I went to work for an hour ...

分享 Research needs a good environment and devotion
虞左俊 2009-11-1 02:44
For a whole month, I was taking time off for remodeling at home. Each morning, I would take my son to school and then make a quick stop at my office to check my numerical experiments. Since I am only allowed to park next to my office building for 15 mins before 4 pm, there is very little ...
