Thought for Today:

In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities.
在梦想和爱中,没有什么不可能。

Today's Highlight in History:

1939: Inventor of basketball James Naismith died on November 28 at the age of 78. He devised 13 rules of basketball games. His rules took one page and less than 600 words. Today, there are more than 30,000 words in the rules. The game is far more complicated than when Naismith hung up the peach baskets in Springfield in 1891.
1939年11月28日,篮球发明者詹姆士·奈史密斯逝世,享年78岁。他为篮球游戏制定了13条规则。当时的规则只有600多个字,但是现在的规则却有超过3万多字,比1891年詹姆士把水果篮挂在春田校园中的时候要复杂多了。

1990: on behalf of China, Professor Qian Tianbai officially registered China's top domain name as CN in DDN-NIC on November 28, the former international Internet information center. Since then the international E-mail communication service with CN as the top domain name has been available, thus filling China's vacancy in Internet.
1990年11月28日,钱天白代表中国正式在国际互联网络信息中心的前身DDN-NIC(当时尚未正式成立INTERNIC,而是由美国国防部ARPANET网络中心DDN-NIC负责全球互联网络域名和IP地址的分配)注册登记了我国的顶级域名CN。从那时起,以CN作为国际电子邮件的顶级域名就生效了,填补了中国互联网的一个空白。
