NBA Playoffs 2006 Day One

King James explained why he is the One.
Spurs slaughtered the Kings.
Baby Bulls showed that they are the rising team.
Clippers won their first playoff game out of the late game scare.

Overall, it was a very exciting game 1s from 8 teams.

I have not watched all the game yet, but from what I watched, Bulls vs Heats and Nuggets vs Clippers, I am very satisified with the intensity from teams and the executions.

Besides the Spurs and the Piston, the ticket to play against this two teams is up for grab.

NBA Playoffs 2006

NBA Playoff will start this Saturday.

16 teams will try to get this year's NBA championship trophy. It is highly likely that Piston and Spurs will be meeting each other to fight for this trophy.

Besides Spurs and Piston, other teams who are hopeful to get this trophy is worth of mentioning about their name.

Suns: Despite of losing their best interior player, Stoudemire, they were able to shoot down other teams by their sizzling 3-pointers.

Bulls: Late season run made them to become a playoff team. Kirk Hinrich will become one of the famous point guards in the NBA history.

Wizard: A team packed with athletic players. Jamison and Butler are nice teammate to be with for Areana.

Clippers: A truely amazing season for them. Cassell is credited to turn the losing culture in the Clippers to a playoff contender.

Mavs: A team full of unorthdox players. A center who shoots 3 pointers, undrafted forwards, and an unheard of point guard buzz around the league.

Kings: The changed of team philosophy in the mid season made them better. A dangerous team in the eighth spot.

A new feature added

I always thought a subject in email and a title in blog entry is useless.

I was wrong.

It is actually very important. A nice brief information about what the email is about or what the entry is about helps the reader a lot.

After struggling for a while, I have decided to put in the title for the blog entry. It will surely help the readers and the editor, me, a lot.

Fedora Foundation might depart with Fedora project. Redhat will soon stop the Fedora foundation.

Here is the announcement made from the mailing list.

Fedora Announcement

As a long time Redhat user from version 8 to Fedora 3 currently (Fedora 5 just came out), I think Fedora has moved too fast. However, the issue is not here, it sits on the problem of legal matters.

At first I was impressed by Redhat to take partnership with Fedora project after they discontinued Redhat 9. I like the idea of keeping the Redhat product tradition of putting everything together and ship it to desktop user. It eases a lot of installation issue.

I like Fedora, I hope without Fedora foundation, Fedora project will continue to grow to help the Linux desktop community.

Apple posted a program call "<a href="">Boot Camp</a>".

It is a software that helps user to use both OS X and Windows on the new Intel base machine.

Before the machine boots up and if the Option key is pressed, the selection between which OS to boot will show on the screen.

It definitely will affect the decision when a consumer think of getting a new computer. I wonder if boot camp will support when two hard disks are installed on the Mac Intel.

Source control management system.

The major brands are CVS and Subversion (SVN). I started off with CVS to manage my source code and lately, I have been using SVN more and more.

SVN claims to be a improvement for CVS. It has a slightly different method to track the source code.

For more information, you can visit their respective web site for more detail.

<a href="">Subversion</a>

<a href="">CVS</a>

My personal option:
I like CVS more because I felt that it made more sense to me when having version for each file. SVN uses revision of the project instead of the file individually.

In CVS, I will say:
Version 1.1 of foo.c om project p.
In SVN, I will say:
The foo.c in revision 5 of project p.

The argument could be similiar to either VI or EMACS is better (VI), but it's personal preference and I think as a programmer, I should be flexible to either.
