Riverside, Silom & Lumphini

Slice ePub May 28, 2014

Although you may not see it behind the office blocks, high-rise condos and hotels, Mae Nam Chao Phraya (the Chao Phraya River) forms a watery backdrop to these linked neighbourhoods. History is still palpable in the riverside area’s crumbling architecture, while heading inland, Silom, Bangkok’s de facto financial district, is frenetic and modern, and adjacent Lumphini is the city’s green lungs.

LXV To Giorgio Vasari

Slice PDF April 24, 2015

LXIV On the Death of the Same

What wonder is it if, when near the fire,

I burned and melted, now that it is cold

I still am eaten with a fierce desire

And turn to ashes, sad and unfulfilled.

I saw the place, so burning and so bright,

Where my great torment hung. It only could

Turn death into a gay fiesta mood,

And make me happy at the simple sight.

But since the splendour of that fire, which would

So nourish me, is snatched into the dark

By Heaven, I am a lighted coal concealed:

And if by words of love I can’t be healed,

Then I am nothing now, not even a spark,

But turn to ashes what the fire once held.

LXV To Giorgio Vasari

Already now my life has run its course,

And, like a fragile boat on a rough sea,

I reach the place where everyone must cross

And give account of life’s activity.

Now I know well it was a fantasy

That made me think art could be made into

An idol or a king. Though all men do

This, they do it half-unwillingly.

The loving thoughts, so happy and so vain,

Are finished now. A double death comes near –

20. fluorescent light

Slice ePub November 19, 2014

light source, indicator, or display > single source > fluorescent light

This entry deals primarily with fluorescent tubes (infrequently but sometimes described as fluorescent lamps), and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) that are marketed as a substitute for incandescent lamps. Cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs) are also mentioned.

Vacuum fluorescent devices have a separate entry in this encyclopedia. A fluorescent tube or CFL does not contain a vacuum.

Although the diode(s) in a white LED area lighting unit are coated with a layer of fluorescent phosphors, they are not categorized here as fluorescent lights, and have their own entry.

A neon bulb resembles a fluorescent light in that it is a gas-discharge device, but the interior of its glass envelope is usually not coated with fluorescent phosphors, and therefore it has its own entry.

A. PLAUT: Comment: on not incarnating the archetype

Slice ePub May 23, 2014


Fordham’s paper, ‘Technique and counter-transference’ (1969), is a thorough survey of an area in analytical psychology (extending into dynamic psychology in general) as well as a statement of an original point of view. It has given me a much-wanted stimulus to review and clarify a phrase that in discussions has become connected with my name and goes back to a paper I wrote fourteen years ago (1956).

The paper was the third in a symposium called ‘Jung’s contribution to analytical thought and practice’, and my title was ‘The transference in analytical psychology’. It is important to recall this for the following reasons: (a) In 1956 nothing, or next to nothing, had been published on the subject of counter-transference by analytical psychologists other than Jung (who, as Fordham said, did not use the term much). (b) My contribution had to be brief, (c) The second thoughts that I am about to present can touch on only one or two facets of Fordham’s comprehensive survey, i.e. where they overlap or show up discrepancies.

7. NAS Backup and Recovery

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

At one time there were few backup and recovery options for NAS filers. If you were willing to manually swap tapes, you backed them up with locally attached tape drives and the dump command. If you wanted to integrate your NAS backups into your enterprise backup system, you backed them up via NFS or CIFS. These two options were relatively simple, but they left a lot to be desired. Thankfully, today's landscape looks much different.

This chapter concentrates on the entire spectrum of data protection services available for filers today. Not all the features discussed here are available from all NAS vendors. In fact, some features are available on only one or two platforms. Since this market is so dynamic, This chapter will cover only general features; please contact vendors for specifics.

This section concentrates on two options you can use as a first line of defense against logical corruption and physical disk failure. Snapshots can give you multiple points in time to which you can recover instantly without a lot of overhead. Mirroring helps provide a standby system in case the primary system fails.
