Time for papers, I guess I’m not the only one who sitting on the hot pan. Like many of my classmates, I am totally messed up in how to write a formal paper. Although I can explain this as my first time, It’s trully a common point for many Chinese students like me. A real paper writing, not include copy’n paste, is part of an acdamic innovation. We have live over 15 years under Chinese test-oriented education system. What we are good at is not creating but repeating. I can now give a clear answer for my long-time muddle that why our foreiign counterparts spend shortter time in graduate school while doing more works, they have all been educated to be innovative since they are little kids and totally matured at this phase.
Speak never works, I have come back to my reality. Forunately, I can at least get some help on paperwork formats through Internet. Mikwal has made a good work for us, I guess he is one of my pan-pals too.

My latest assignment is Distributed User-Driven Requirement Elicitation and Negotiation, DUDREN for abbriviation. It takes me half a day to even understand the meaning. Although fuzzy in expression, it’s a very insteresting and promissing idea. The core of it is very simple, when we want to ask some people about a new guy, the more people we ask the more objective image we got. Understanding requirement is pretty the same. But unfortunatly, this will introduce some problem. With the more information about the target, we have more change to get some countrodictory description. I guess this will be one of the main tasks I will face.

I always wondering whether good lucks can ever come to me? It’s another strike to me that the project which I have been busy for almost one month has been called off. Is that because of the bad cooperation ? Is that because of the poor comunicatioin ? Anyway , I had tried my best after all those difficulties. The fact is that I have to turn full back to my previous study and submit the perspective paper in about 10 days. People can have lot of crossovers in the life, I prey the next one for me will be a good one.

It’s turn out to be a very very stupid mistake which almost stuck me for 10 days. I wrote a class to wrap the interactive shell command like "sudo". Everything goes well before I try to write "input" to complete the conversation with the shell. I knew I should take use of getOutputStream() to get control to the input but the program still hang there what ever I write to that outputStream. The day before yestoday, I talk about it with one of my labmates after the routine conference. He ask me " have you terminate your input?" . It’s so stupid for me to ignore that! It’s prooved that both "/" and "n" will do on Redhat 9.
It’s once again an example showing that the one making mistake is not the machine, is yourself
