清华紫光输入法我从Win98的时代就开始用,也算是一款“历史悠久”的软件。 那时候我比较喜欢看一本叫《数码时代》的电脑杂志。这本杂志每一期都有附送一张CD光盘,上面有不少软件,漫画,壁纸和mp3之类的。 刚开始接触紫光输入法的时候就发现它非常“智能化”。 例如“空格键选词”,“词库备份”也算是一些比较新鲜和实用的功能。 但随着时间的推移,紫光在输入法方面好像没有下多少功夫,最新版的V6 beta 3里面的设置界面更是令人狂抓! 所以上个月起我便开始寻找代替紫光的输入法。 (more…)

Below are some of the photos I took during the Microsoft Student Day @ Canterbury University. Since there are so many photos, I will split the post into three parts. (more…)
