      I think you’re being linsensitive. My views aren’t, by any means, Spec’s official stance on anything! I just needed something related to Jeremy Lin so went with that.

      This is getting a bit more sutbcejive, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

        365 and a Wakeup often features some very loevly writing, about such things (a while back) as “Sleep, the new drug” and an intriguing description of Baghdad as seen at night in a helicopter. There are going to be a glut of memoirs, hard to differentiate in most cases… some of these guys are more political than others, but my preference is for description and not yet fully digested experience.

    剛剛想到是否為plugin太多的問題,所以現在把所有的plugin都先關掉,但現在又變成了Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes esxhuated (tried to allocate 98304 bytes) in D:\AppServ\www\wordpress\wp-admin\menu-header.php on line 70你好,錯誤訊息是指主機的記憶體設定太小,所以才請你在.htaccess檔內做設定,不然你可以試試直接將php.ini檔裡面的memory_limit調高一點,設定完後重起啟動你的apache server。max
