2018.1.18. Chapter 2 Happiness is a problem
Finding Nemo is an animated film about a clownfish called Marlin who loses his son Nemo. On the way, he meets another fish called Dory. Together, they set out on an amazing adventure to find Nemo across the huge ocean! I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, but it’s a great film to watch for all audiences – one of the best animated films of all time!
1. Why “happiness is a problem?
最近较忙，但团队的StarEMU项目完成得十分出色。既然许诺过，故今日送上视频演示。视频中是我自己用台机和笔记本联机进行的ZvP对战，所以得两头忙活，视频里鼠标不动时我就在另外一端上建造。我主要操作虫族端。对战本身无关紧要，只是要说明比上次的模拟器流畅稳定了很多，延迟也得以改善。目前我们正在着手处理些小问题，RC2将具有稳定的1v1和2v2功能。届时将有更多诸如截图和多人对战的证据。我们要对模拟器进行测试和确证，最终版本将在 SC2发布后释出。目前来看，不会很久。我电脑比较垃圾，所以帧数一塌糊涂。模拟器的相关技术细节：0，工作原理和最初的模拟器一样，论坛中解释不下一百遍了。现在只是告诉各位同学RC1中的LAN模拟器如何工作。1，当点击“发送数据”，会有发送成功与否的的弹出窗口，所发送的数据是我用服务器配置功能设定的。如此完成服务端和客户端的同步后，锁定游戏状态。我要表达的概念是，配置过程中，服务端和客户端之间进行同步减少了延迟以提高游戏体验。当然视频中可见，同步尚未完美，我们还在努力解决。2，为什么要有四个连接呢。很简单，三个用于游戏客户端，第四个用于2v2的裁判，这一功能还未完成。3，鉴于这是局域网对战模拟，AI没有存在的必要，另外AI和局域网对战功能不兼容，在RC1中被禁用。我们将力争将AI加入以满足网友的要求。4，服务端选项对话框里的70%选项工作正常，其他的还有待改善。但该选项并不重要。5，插件功能目前为禁用状态。对于该选项，我们还有好多想法，稍后呈上。6，反暴雪按钮包含敏感内容，视频录制前预先配置，而视频中未予展示。该选项包含了DLL文件注入、随机数据包、屏蔽官网、安全选项等，以支持局域网对战。该选项为主要选项，其他的就只是一般配置选项了。7，当点击开始，随机注入的DLL禁用了战网验证并从Battle.net.dll夺取控制权。这还修改客户端上的SC2.exe和其他文件。8，客户端必须先行离开，否则他就会死机。9，无战绩统计，因为这是战网组件，而后者已被如愿禁用:)或许我们该设法重启战绩统计功能。10，欢迎来电来函来人评论或询问！--------------------还算华丽的分割线--------------------关于对浩方SC2房间的设想：一旦code-gen发布了局域网模拟器，只需修改浩方使其调用StarEMU，并像调用魔兽争霸和CS那样为其分配局域网地址将其纳入浩方,即可在浩方中联机对战星际争霸II Ok folks. Here is almost final result of our work. We are aware 99% of you thinks of us as some kind of scammers but I really don’t know what we have gained with all this. If you do please let us know. Anyway, that is discussion for noobs who don’t know the difference between patata, krumpir or krtola.Anyway!Didn’t have the time lately to do stuff, because there are tons of projects to be worked on + RL. But my teammates made excellent work on StarEMU. But I promised a video today so here is a game I played yesterday. It is Zerg vs Protoss and I am playing myself vs myself in one room (PC and Laptop connected via Ethernet) so everything is slow because I am building on both sides so when you see my cursor standing still it means I am building drones, 3 gateways and a dozen zealots. But I am mainly playing Zerg. But since this is only a demonstration I don’t really care what is the battle. I just wanted to show that there is 90% less lag than last time and 90% more stability. There are known bugs of course and we are working on them. With RC2 who will be out by saturday we will get full blown 1v1 and 2v2 battles with even better overall performance. Then expect tons of videos and other proofs like screenshots of people playing in the room, video of people playing, etc. Final version will come out after SC2 makes it out. We need to verify and test the software but as I saw from SC2 code, it won’t take long.My computer sucks so FRAPS-ing is horrible. I did my best for the video to be best quality and still manages to YouTube.Now for some Technical Details about how it works.0. First, you all remember the primal concept on how it works. It was explained on forums 100 times. What I want now is to tell you something how LAN Emulation in RC1 works.1. When I click “Send Data” and you get a pop up message “Data Sent”, Data is NOT sent YET. It is sending during the server configuration when I press “CONFIGURE SERVER”. When I press that, synchronization between Server and Client is done. After that “GameState” is LOCKED and both are in “perfect” sync. Well, it’s not perfect, we are still working on it. But you get the idea. While configuring, Server Data is sent to Client and Client synchronizes with Server. This is done to reduce LAG and improve performance. Still needs to be worked on as you will see some lag in video.2. Why are there 4 connections? Simple, 3 for Game Clients and fourth for the Spectator/Referee for 2v2. This is not yet functional.3. AI is DISABLED in RC1 and will be in all future builds. Will be removed… No point in it really. This is LAN software, not AI fight.EDIT: Some people have expressed desire for AI to be enabled. We will look into it. Problem is high incompatibility.4. SERVER OPTIONS dialog speaks for itself. It has lot of options and 70% of them work. Some still need fixing and some need to be done, but that is not really important since those options are not critical.5. PLUGINS are DISABLED for now. There will be some nice goodies that are planned for this. More info later.6. ANTI-Blizzard contains touchy stuff and that’s why I didn’t open it in the video. I preconfigured it before I started recording. It contains the options for DLL Injection, Random Offsets Patching, Internal functions, Deny access to Battle.net, Security features and many other things that in fact ENABLE LAN play. This is the main Option component. Rest is just configuration.7. When I Launched the game you saw a pop up with Random Offset and DLL Injection + usage of different rewritten DLL. After that, that DLL disabled Battle.net communication with SC2 and took over functions from Battle.net.dll. It also patched SC2.exe and some other files to start SC2 on Client computer. It is crazy stuff inside.8. Client ALWAYS must leave the game first or else his computer will freeze.9. There is no score screen because it is a Battle.net component and Battle.net is disabled. I wish it had. Maybe we will find a way to enable it.10. Comments are always welcome. Even flame, we don’t care.

2...if you feel crappy it’s because your brain is telling you that there is a problem that is unaddressed or unsolved.
So today, I want to share a few tips with you on learning English with movies. They’ll help you learn helpful new words and phrases, but also enjoy watching movies at the same time.
4.Why you don’t have chiseled abs? (If you do have, how did you make it?)
- You hear how things are said.
Never has there been a film where you can have so much fun with pirates.
often delude yourself / somebody into doing sth
The English you learn through textbooks or in ESL class is not what you’ll hear people say. For example, in beginner English classes, you might have learnt how to say “it’s a quarter to seven” or “it’s raining cats and dogs”. While these are correct, we almost never say these in real life.
3They must constantly delude of distract themselves from reality.
Eg: We watched our fellow workers saunter

My thoughts about this chapter:
Use FluentU to listen to native English speakers. You will hear how they use their language in different ways. You will get a better understanding of how English is spoken in the real world outside your classroom and textbooks. Hey, why learn English with textbooks when you can let Hugh Jackman teach you?
Eg: The plot of this novel is crappy.

4.And with that, he set his glass down, adjust his sombrero, and sauntered off into the sunset.
Let me give you an example.
1...that I maybe let myself succumb to the pressures of society.
It is hard to understand native English speakers, right? We have made this easier with subtitles. But that’s not all we have done! While you watch your English videos, you can see the definition for every word that you hear.
Because I don’t really want it. I have signed up for the gym class last month, and the gym is very near to my apartment. It is very convenient for me to take some exercise. However, I only went to once. The first excuse I made was that I was busy with my teaching, mycaring of my 5 yearsold son, my readingclub. The second reason was because of the cold weather, and I really didn’t want to go downstairs. But today, It suddenly strikes me that I don’t give priority to gym class because I don’t think it is important. I just don’t to do exercise. So I don’t have chiseled abs.

The author invented the “Disappointment Panda” to prove his argument –dissatisfaction and unease are inherent parts of human nature and necessary component to creating consistent happiness. It is used to tell the great truth in life.
Perhaps you’re still wondering if you can still really learn any English by watching movies.
Eg :Don’t succumb to his persuasion to play computer games.
On the other hand, if you try to watch something like “Romeo and Juliet”, you will be very confused. Shakespearian English (which is English used many centuries ago) is very difficult to understand on screen, even for advanced English learners.
Succumb: v, to stop opposing someone or something that is stronger than you, and allow them to take control, to give in, or to surrender,向（压力，诱惑）屈服，多与 to 连用
Words and expressions:
- VLC player. This is actually a video player I recommend for watching films on your computer. This is one of my favourite tools. Most people use it just to watch movies, but I use it a little differently. (And if you don’t have it, you can download VLC player, it’s free.)
Because problems are a constant in life and happiness comes from solving problem.Truly happiness occurs when you find the problems you enjoy having and enjoy solving.
The Terminator series is a story about a war between artificially intelligent (AI) machines and humans that is going on in the future. When the humans start to win the war, these AI machines send killer machines back to the past. Their goal is to try and kill the leader of the human resistance, John Connor and his family. A thrilling science fiction film that’s truly one of a kind in this genre.
Crappy: adj,very bad or poor quality,(usually not polite)低劣的，蹩脚的，令人厌恶的

Everyone wants to have happiness, but not everyone like the process to attain happiness. As the writer said it is easy to want the results but hard to suffer the pains and struggles.Life is comprised of struggles and choices. You have to choose your struggle, choose the important struggle, choose what you really like. If you always fantasize something but don’t actually achieve anything ,it is time for you reconsider your choice. That is because you don’t really want it in your inmost heart. Why don’t I have chiseled abs? Because I don’t really want it. I have signed up for the gym class last month, and the gym is very near to my apartment. It is very convenient for me to take some exercise. However, I only went to once. The first excuse I made was that I was busy with my teaching, my caring of my 5 yearsold son, my reading club. The second reason was because of the cold weather, and I really didn’t want to go downstairs. But today, It suddenly strikes me that I don’t give priority to gym class because I. don’t think it is important. I just don’t to do exercise. So I don’t have chiseled abs. So just find want you want and struggle for it.
Usually, when we learn words traditionally (e.g. in school), we study things like vocabulary lists. The problem with learning new words with vocabulary lists is that you can learn what words mean, but not where and how they are used.
eg: It is easy to delude yourself into believing you are being loved by someone.
3.What is the role that emotions play in our life? why they are overrated?
Esl learn english with movies film
delude: vt, to make someone believe something that is not true, to deceive
In this thousand-year battle between these two sides, the Jedi knights and the Sith Lords clash in a thrilling sequence throughout the six movies. There are no other movies like Star Wars…definitely worth checking out!
Bring your dictionary. Maybe I’ll add point 3.5 too – choose a film with subtitles! So when you hear a word you’re interested in, check it up! Because you went through the trouble to understand it…you’ll be able to remember that word for a long time too!
Repeat short phrases! Some times, you might hear something cool in the movie. For example, some short phrases, or slang like, “hell yeah!”, or “sure thing”, or “you betcha!” that are commonly used in English. If you like how it sounds, it really helps to repeat it! After saying it out loud a while, you will be able to remember it for a longer time! It’s a great and enjoyable exercise – one of my personal favourites.
Without subtitles. I know it can be really challenging to watch a film in a foreign language without subtitles. So here’s my recommendation. When you watch a film the first time, just turn on subtitles. But if you get the chance to watch it a second time, try turning off subtitles.
And hopefully, that got you a bit more excited about watching English movies.
For example, let’s say you learn the new word “detective”. From the dictionary, you’ll know what that it means “a person who investigates crimes”. But unless you use it, it can be easy to forget. It also doesn’t give you an idea where the word is used most frequently, and how it is used.
Lord of the Rings is another one of the greatest film series in the magic category. Set in the lands of the Middle Earth, there are three primary races – dwarves, humans, elves as well as other races such as Hobbits, orcs and werewolves.

Here are three reasons I believe it works, and why I recommend learning the language this way.
This way, you already know the story from the first time you watched it. And this time, you can try listening to some individual words that you might have checked up last time. Or you might try to see how much you can understand the film without subtitles.
This is one of my favourite aspects of watching movies. Let’s say that you like watching crime films (these are great!). After watching ten or twenty movies, you’ll start to learn vocabulary related to the context, or subject, of crime.
The best part? FluentU remembers the vocabulary that you’re learning. It recommends you examples and videos based on the words you’ve already learned. You have a truly personalized experience.
There are no subtitles. This is pretty rare nowadays. But if you watch a film without subtitles, it can be difficult to understand what’s going on.
You have to keep on pausing and playing to understand. It can take you many times to understand something said on screen, because sometimes, the film might be easy. But at other times, it might be hard to understand. (As an example, characters who play “professors” in films can be difficult to understand. They use some difficult words, which you may have never heard of before.)
You have to keep on checking up words. For every word you don’t know, you might want to look it up in the dictionary. While it’s a lot faster to check up words nowadays on our phones, it can be annoying to keep pausing and checking up words.
You can’t remember these words afterwards. It can be difficult to keep track of what you’ve learnt, because it takes time and effort to take notes, and we want to have an enjoyable experience in watching the movie, without having to be interrupted every minute to write down a word!
You don’t know if you remember these words after. After a week, or a month, or even three months, you might forget what you’ve learnt! And because you didn’t jot down notes, you can’t really test yourself either.
So what about the other 70%?
This way, you won’t only learn what each word means, you will also know how it’s used.
You will never be able to do that through textbooks.
