Korean fashion style following KPOP weave

Posted in Fashion, Web on December 18, 2011 by wsjoung

Recently KPOP is getting very popular, it called KPOP weave.  It seems like that many of Korean pop singers or groups already are on the top of music chart in Asian area including China, Japan and south eastern Asia.

This trends lead some of other fields like movies, TV dramas and fashion. Especially Korean clothing is getting more popular as Korean celebrities getting popular. Because people notice the style of Korean celebrities on TV show.

Korean fashion clothing is distinguished from others. First they are mostly for slim. sometimes it’s not make easy to find big size of clothing. Second fashion trends are changing very fast. Korea is a sort of small county, when a style is getting trends it doesn’t take that long to get spread out. The last is that they have very efficient manufacturing cycle. All these make difference on Korean fashion style.

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 14593.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs

SwingWorker not on Java 6.0

Posted in Java, Programming with tags , on April 24, 2008 by wsjoung

SwingWorker is useful when a time-consuming task has to be performed following a user-interaction event (for example, parsing a huge XML File, on pressing a Button). The most straightforward way to do it is :

 private Document doc;
 JButton button = new JButton("Open XML");
 button.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
       doc = loadXML();

This will work, but unfortunately, the loadXML() method will be called in the same thread as the main Swing thread, so if the method needs time to perform, the GUI will freeze during this time.

package com.wsjoung.demo;
import javax.swing.SwingUtilities;

public abstract class SwingWorker {
    // see getValue(), setValue()
    private Object value;
    private Thread thread;

    private static class ThreadVar {
        private Thread thread;
        ThreadVar(Thread t) { thread = t; }
        synchronized Thread get() { return thread; }
        synchronized void clear() { thread = null; }

    private ThreadVar threadVar;

    protected synchronized Object getValue() {
        return value;

    private synchronized void setValue(Object x) {
        value = x;

    public abstract Object construct();

    public void finished() {

    public void interrupt() {
        Thread t = threadVar.get();
        if (t != null) {

    public Object get() {
        while (true) {
            Thread t = threadVar.get();
            if (t == null) {
                return getValue();
            try {
            catch (InterruptedException e) {
                // propagate
                return null;

    public SwingWorker() {
        final Runnable doFinished = new Runnable() {
           public void run() { finished(); }

        Runnable doConstruct = new Runnable() {
            public void run() {
                try {
                finally {


        Thread t = new Thread(doConstruct);
        threadVar = new ThreadVar(t);


public class Task{
  public void go() {
      current = 0;
      final SwingWorker worker = new SwingWorker() {
          public Object construct() {
              return new ActualTask();

  class ActualTask {
      ActualTask() {
          try {
          } catch (InterruptedException e) {}


pure-ftpd-mysql, [ERROR] Home directory not available – aborting

Posted in System with tags , , , , on April 15, 2008 by wsjoung

groupadd -g 2001 ftpgroup
useradd -u 2001 -s /bin/false -d /bin/null -c “pureftpd user” -g ftpgroup ftpuser

Instead of this dummy ftpuser account setting when they want to create real linux account.
they may get this error “Home directory not available – abort” even if they set CreateHomeDir to yes.

the last existing in the home path should be own by root.
for example, we want to create somebody’s home directory when he log in, /home/ftpuser/somebody
then the last existing directory ‘ftpuer’ may look like this,
drwxr-xr-x 2 root ftpgroup 4096 2008-04-15 11:20 ftpuser

what’s static?

Posted in Programming with tags , , on April 14, 2008 by wsjoung

First of all, the meaning of static in java is embedded or belong to a specific class not to its instance, and therefore there is no such static class.

  • There is no such static class
  • Embedded or belong to a specific class
  • Global variable
  • No need to load and create its instance

Most of methods and variables in Math class are static, because those are not need to be instanced in most of cases. we just use return value of PI or max(int a, int b).

class Bicycle {

private static int numberOfBicycles = 0;
private int id;

public Bicycle() {
id = ++numberOfBicycles;

public static int getNumberOfBicycles() {
return numberOfBicycles;
public int getID() {
return id;

public static void main(String[] args) {
Bicycle b1 = new Bicycle();
Bicycle b2 = new Bicycle();

System.out.println(“static result : “+getNumberOfBicycles());
System.out.println(“static result : “+numberOfBicycles);
System.out.println(“instance result : “+b1.getID());
System.out.println(“instance result : “+b2.getID());

Another characteristic of static is that even if we create instance of a class, jvm does not create instance variables for static resources. in above source code, there is no difference calling b1.getNumberOfBicycles(), b2.getNumberOfBicycles() and just getNumberOfBicycles() or directly numberOfBicycles
that mean we should call static variable with its class name because it’s belong to it. just like Bicycle.numberOfBicycles or in this example, getNumberOfBicycles() because we have a getter.
otherwise get confused.
