句号

昨晚,终于上完了最后一堂星期一的拉丁舞课。无需再忍受老师那不怎么理睬我的态度。尤其是昨晚,有一分钟的时间是放在我身上吗?算了算了,没必要再生气了。近三年的课,就此画上句号。

昨晚的聚餐,老师的出席让我完全没有了兴致。广东话的闲谈让我插不上口,真是后悔出席。

月底的 Crystal 拉丁舞比赛,学妹们有参加,可是没一个人告诉我!?为什么这样呢?

 

Last night was my final lesson for the Monday Latin dance class.  Did my teacher pay his attention on my dancing for at least a minute last night?!  Very upset, but it’s the last.  I don’t have to bear with it any more.  Attending the Monday class for almost 3 years, I’m putting a full stop to it now.

Debian Wheezy – Mate Desktop 1.8.1- Lowering The Volume Into Mute But Cannot Unmute By Increasing The Volume

Since the installation of Wheezy, I’ve been struggling to find a good and reliable desktop environment.  From Gnome 3 to XFCE to LXDE and back to XFCE.  Still, some of the things just didn’t work as I wanted it to be.  A few weeks ago I learnt that Debian’s Wheeze-backports have provided the Mate Desktop package.  It’s a fork from Gnome 2 which is the best Linux desktop environment I’ve ever used, so I decided to give it a try (I did try Mint Linux with Mate desktop for a short while quite some time ago).  It’s been a few weeks using the Mate desktop and I’m very happy with it except one thing: the sound will be muted when lowering the volume to 0% but it won’t be unmuted by increasing the volume.  I’ll have to fire up the “Sound Preferences” to unmute the audio device.  After some googling, the solution is easy:

aptitude install mate-media-pulse mate-settings-daemon-pulse

The two packages will replace the mate-media-gstreamer and mate-settings-daemon-gstreamer installed.
