New Year Resolutions (新年新希望)

[新年新希望:老妹Annie要瘦身] Annie: any new year resolutions?? Austin: how about you? Annie: me? Annie: I started my resolutions the week of thanksgiving [新年新希望:老哥Austin我要多參與自由軟體] Austin: http://blog.yam.com/ystuan/archives/710519.html Annie: to lose weight and keep the weight off ...by doing it RIGHT Annie: not stupid diet anymore Austin: Oh, that's a good one. Annie: I am eating healthy and eating whatever I want... Austin: The above URL is part of mine. Annie: and exercise a lot to build muscle Austin: (Which focus on Free Software -> 我的志業) [老妹覺得我不自量力] Annie: I see... Annie: ha...nice try Annie: you are fighting against bill gates Annie: a battle that you won't win Austin: Well, not exactly against BillG Austin: We're against Non-open, non-royalty free, IT standards. [老妹覺得我應該跟隨潮流,做個賺大錢的技客(Geek)] Annie: why do you have to be a tech geek to go against the flow?? Annie: why can't you be the tech geek that go with the flow and makes a shit load of money?? Annie: I am sure your wife will be really happy Austin: Such as Open Document Format instead of proprietary ones. Austin: Name one whose last name is not Gates :) [她覺得geek可以去Google工作賺錢,真是抬舉她老哥,她忘了她老哥是寫不來程式的] Annie: all those engineers that are working for google Annie: they make a lot of money every year Annie: I am not talking about being billionaire Austin: Fact is, in other industries, there is no such Monopoly that has GIANT market share like MS. Annie: I am talking about making a good $150K USD - $300K USD Austin: Oh, Google is good. They are very open to Free/Open Source Softare! Annie: with this kind of salaary...you will have a very good life Austin: I would LOVE to be hired by Google, the company use tons of Linux servers!!! [老妹說到Google其實也逐漸成為霸權] Annie: yeah..but google is also trying to build their monopoly in search as well Annie: well then Annie: go apply Austin: Google is famous for the motto: "Do no evil" Austin: And I think many people are keeping an eye on them to make sure they do what they say. Austin: Not until they have Google Taiwan. Annie: well, a lot of people in the industry said that motto has being evolving..and changing Austin: They do have Google China, though. [我覺得Google是一家非常懂得運用自由軟體來鎖住客戶的商業公司] Austin: Yeah. Annie: taiwan to too small of a market Annie: no matter how you look at it Annie: google usually puts Print Ads on NYTimes or major news paper for some crazy techinical questions...and to apply the job..you will need to answer the questions first Austin: Google is very good at making money from "Brilliant biz model + Open Source Software + Great talent + Only APIs but no souce codes" Austin: Some very small OSS company do employ overseas home worker. Austin: But not Google, I think :p Austin: The "Only-APIs-but no-source-code" model create a great balance between attract/retain users, and lock-down users on THEIR services. Austin: Cuz you cannot get their source code and build another Google Searce/Earth/Maps/whatever. Period. [兄妹倆開始討論賺多少錢才是「夠了」] Austin: Talking about making a good $150K USD - $300K USD --> Per year? Austin: What would be the equivalent if working in Taiwan? Annie: well, the equivalent is to make $150K NT - $300K NT a year Annie: then you can have a good life Annie: I think Annie: at least that's when I was sitting at cram school and those teachers told us ... Annie: and that should be our goal after getting our MBA and head back to taiwan Annie: I am not sure inflation in the past 5 yrs had made a difference or not Austin: 150K NT -> 15萬 Annie: sorry Austin: That should be a month, not a year! Annie: I mean 150萬 Austin: Oh. Annie: to 300萬 Annie: of course, if you have 4 kids to feed+ a mortgage to pay then 150萬 doesn't get you that far Austin: q^^p Annie: regardless...150萬 is good pay check Austin: (雙手握拳狀) Annie: of course 300萬 is even better...ha ha Annie: sorry..all I can think about is money [米國習慣算年薪,所以我換算,這個天文數字相當於多少月薪] Austin: let me see, if I stay in Agilent, we got 13.5 months of pay per year. Annie: I want to pay off mortgage a lot faster...so I have to run the finances tight Austin: Which means my month salary should be 11萬多 到 22萬多 Austin: Before or after tax? Austin: Money IS important. Annie: before tax Austin: And you can say that by playing with Linux from college, I got my first job in 政大 Austin: And I got my job in Agilent. [老妹想套我口風,我的收入可是秘密呢!] Annie: how much you are getting paid per month? Austin: I use all the Unix/Linux techniques, day in and day out. Austin: That's a secret :p [老妹又修正,其實以上談的應該是家戶收入] Annie: actually, if your combine HHI( house hold income) is 150萬...then you should be able to have a good life too Austin: HHI == 家戶收入? Annie: yes Annie: HHI ( Household income) Annie: for your situation, HHI = your salary+ your wife's [終於瞭解她在說什麼,不過我們的家戶收入也是秘密!] Austin: yeah, I get it now. Annie: so... Annie: I think that's the rule of thumb [我又開始講大道理了,賺得多很好,賺得爽更重要] Austin: Well, no matter how much, I'm happy with our HHI now :) Annie: that's good Annie: if you are happy Austin: And we'll try to earn more. Annie: if it's enough for you Annie: I am happy with our HHI as well Austin: But not at the expense of losing the time to spend with the family. Annie: but we have so much expenses... Annie: oh...no....not like our dad Annie: he never actually take time to enjoy all the money he makes Annie: I think I am enjoying life on the other hand Austin: I'll try to balance Family, work, and OSS :) [底下這句是本人自選的本篇最重點,請詳加背誦] Austin: Work puts food on my table, family give me love, and OSS give me hope :) [大道理時間又來了,修身齊家治國平天下,芭樂八八八...] Austin: Me too, but I also need to ensure that my family is ALSO enjoying their life. Austin: And my co-workers are enjoying working with me. Austin: And my OSS virtual-friends are enjoying my knowledge-sharing. [連 radiant 這個字都搬出來了,真是陽光的牡羊座啊] Austin: In short, I hope that I can be radiant (H) Annie: haha Annie: :D Austin: That's very Aries, right? Annie: that's a good goal to have Austin: Glad to hear you say so :D Annie: it's a big goal to accomplish too Austin: Yeah I know. Austin: Try to make everyone happy, which is almost impossible :p
