Warren Buffett Just Wrote His Best Annual Letter Ever  http://www.gatesnotes.com/About-Bill-Gates/Warren-Buffett-Just-Wrote-His-Best-Annual-Letter-Ever

I have read all 50 of Warren’s letters and feel this is the most important one he has ever written. It’s really three letters in one. First there’s his usual look back at Berkshire’s performance in 2014. Then, because this is the 50th anniversary of his buying Berkshire, there’s a separate section where he goes through the history of his leadership. Finally, his colleague Charlie Munger writes his own look at the company, which is also excellent.

My suggestion about technical learning – first step

Actions in first step:

1, register on github.com, and star the projects you are interested in.

2, register on codeproject.com, and download the demo code to study.

3, register on inoreader.com or other RSS online website, and subscribe the blogs you like, especially English blogs.

4, register on getpocket.com, and save the articles you are interested in.

For your reference.

Bandwagon VPS安装openVPN记录

https://bandwagonhost.com/aff.php?aff=1651

步骤太简单了:先买一个VPS,我选择的是安装Ubuntu-14-min版本。

接下来跑这个脚本就可以 https://github.com/Nyr/openvpn-install,连接速度快过bandwagon自带的openvpn安装。

然后装个nginx加php,https://www.howtoforge.com/installing-nginx-with-php5-and-php-fpm-and-mysql-support-lemp-on-ubuntu-12.04-lts 唯一花了点时间的就是php-fpm用的是unix socket,在/etc/nginx下面的配置和文章中提到的不一样。查了SO,这里有提到 http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10003978/php-fpm-and-nginx-502-bad-gateway

现在终于什么youtube,twitter都可以上啦。

The folks who capture my attention and energy going forward are the ones in category three: The leaders.
