Use Gmail to receive and send other emails


Checking multiple mailboxes is a pain, but you can use Gmail to manage all of them through one single interface and one single login session. I have more than 10+ mailboxes from various institutions, companies and projects. I forward all of them to my personal gmail and also set up "Send Email As ... " in my gmail account so that I can receive and send other emails without ever leaving my gmail account. This article explains how to do that.

Photo#18 - Lives Under the Sea (more)


This hall has the crown-jewel of Monterey Bay Aquarium, jelly fishes. Boy, they look like a fantasy dream, a very blue one. Is this how Flickr got inspiration for its pink-on-blue logo?

Photo#17 - Lives Under the Sea (continued)


In order to keep a reasonable download speed, I try to limit the number of photos in my each photo post to less than ten. In this age of information fragmentation, it's hard to assume anyone, no matter how close he/she is, to have enough patience to look at over more than ten photos at a time. If an event has more than ten photos that are worth sharing, like this Monterey trip, I'll break it down into multiple posts.

Photo#16 - Lives Under the Sea


Monterey Bay Aquarium has some amazing exhibitions of sea lives! I always know about this famous aquarium in the sea-side town of Monterey, CA, and I know all my friends have visited there. I was like, how impressive can an aquarium get? Well, it turns out, it's a total knock-out.

Photo#15 - de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park


Last time we visited de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, it was almost closed and the security guard was kind enough to allow us sneak in for half an hour before they cleaned up the space. We got in earlier this time and happened to catch a great exhibition for Georgia O'Keeffe. Inspired by O'Keeffe and her famous husband Stieglitz, I'm going black and white too.

About


I'm in the process of migrating this site from the previous wordpress structure to Github Page using Pelican, a Python static website generator. You might see some missing files, broken links, or just out-of-alignment here and there. That's because I'm still cleaning up the files from their xml format to streamline everything into strictly Markdown format. If you have been a reader of my site before, there is no new content created after Mar 21, 2014. What gives then? Not a lot for you, but a great deal to me. I will write an article about this ...

Hiking at Joseph D. Grant County Park in East Bay


Joseph D. Grant County Park is located toward the end end of the Bay Area in San Jose, about 40-minute drive from Palo Alto. We came here in early spring trying to catch some wild flowers. Didn't see much blossom yet but the scenery on the hill was quite a treat. There were not too many people in the park. Nearby the park there are numerous biking routes. Right off the parking lot there is a small lake.
