Complete propaganda for Chunghwa - but still a good source of information in a place that is missing good metrics.

Not sure if you're working on your linux box or not, but you might want to take a look at this. If you use something based on ubuntu, like Mint, it should theoretically work.

Also this is a crappy workaround. WINE implementations of Silverlight are crap; just do a VM.

One of the better op-eds I've read on the subject. Numbers... well... they don't lie... exactly. But the system that employs them can obfuscate their true meaning, and in the confusion, the more devious can attempt to take advantage of the uneducated masses. National debt has indeed ballooned, but few understand what that really means or how it happened. Much of the spending we do now is cleanup, rather than social investment .

The only problem it, most investments take more than a single term of political office to mature. Unless our political system changes, politics will consist of gaining power and retaining power through fear, prejudice, and buzzwords. It's too complicated to explain to the masses - so we'll just scare them into voting for us !

Oddly enough, they didn't have a google plus link. That made me sad.

I had never thought about "Star Wars" in quite this way - granted I saw the connections at the time, but they didn't strike me as novel. What I didn't realize was the connection between the public reception of the two trilogies... with simple good and evil being incredibly well received, while the newer prequel trilogy - on all it's ambiguity - was scorned.
It verges on cinematic treason to suggest that the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy is in any way superior to the original trilogy. However, history has proved that treasonous behavior is just as often nec...

3.5 stars - better than Starbucks, but some serious cons. It's the only real coffee shop in the neighborhood. Pros: Decent coffee, excellent internet. Not crowded, friendly staff. Very nice space. Cons: Starbucks prices. Charges for power - but claims the government's fault rather than a business decision. 2 hour time limit - though they don't seem to enforce it. No English support.

Best coffee I've ever had to date, trendy and bright inside. Truly gourmet coffee. A little in the spendy side, people who are accustomed to sweetened or flavored drinks will need to adjust their standards. Four stars out of five because of poor WiFi and highly variable atmosphere. Sometimes the perfect place to study, other times a party.

Best café near ZhengDa. Vastly superior to Starbucks, while being half the price. Great staff, no internet or power. Religious overtones take some getting used to, but never made me uncomfortable.

服務超慢。等了一個半小時菜還沒有上完。食物品質還好,但是。誒有什麼特別。CP 值有一點地。吃完之後有拉肚子。 Terrible service. Waited a full hour for food, and it still hadn't arrived after an hour and a half. Tasted ok, but diarrhea after. Not good value.
