Adminspotting

30 July 2004 07:10

Dedicated to all Sysadmins of the world:

"Choose no life. Choose no career. Choose no family. Choose a fucking big computer, choose arrays the size of washing machines, modem racks, CD ROM writers and electrical coffee makers. Choose no sleep, high caffeine and mental insurance. Choose no friends. Choose black jeans and matching combat boots. Choose chairs for your office in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose SMTP and wondering why the fuck you're logged on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting in that swivel chair looking at mind-numbing, spirit-crushing web sites, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last on some miserable newsgroup, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up lusers Gates spawned to replace the computer-literate. Choose your future. Choose sysadmining." - Adminspotting
Tomorrow, July 30, 2004 is System Administrator Appreciation Day. Be nice to those people who keep your computers, networks, servers, databases, etc. etc. humming smoothly. Give 'em some loving in the form of interesting toys, a night out with Siti Nurhaliza, etc. to make 'em happy on that day. You don't want them to turn into a Bastard Operator From Hell, do ya? After all, they gotta put up with the usual stuff from you for the other 364 days.

Better Find Them Shoes Than Sheets

28 July 2004 01:52

I know I've been going around barefooted for a while and perhaps the blisters and scabs are already showing these days. So the inevitable has actually come, Mom's prodding me to go look formy own pair of shoes already. Yeah, I know I shouldn't take too much time with this but when it comes to certain things, I rather not shop on impulse, nahmsayin'?

My Own Gmail Goodness

26 July 2004 12:01

Thank you very much Natasha for the GMail invite! Couldn't come at a better time too since the JARING email account that I've been using since 1995 has been reduced to a petri dish for spam and virus infested emails of late. Now I've got gobs of space for those pesky things to infest my mailbox... NOT! Heh! Many thanks once again, Nat!

How to DJ (Properly)

22 July 2004 15:56

How DJ-ing can be similiar to "evicting the testicular squatters":

"Bedroom DJing is a lot like masturbation: there's no risk of upsetting your audience, but there's no-one to cheer and scream when you get it right." - Frank Broughton and Bill Brewster inHow to DJ (Properly) - The Art and Science of Playing Records
I found the said book at MPH Mid-Valley the other day. So now, I'm gonna stop "committing mass spermicide" and get my stuff... err... music out there for people to scream and bleed their ears to. Thus for starters, Spoonfork is featuring one of my remixes as his Song Of The Week this time around.

Good Old Friends Through The Years In One Night

21 July 2004 04:15

I'm sure the adage "Make new friends, Don't forget the old; One is silver, The other is gold" is familiar to you. That's the case with these bunch of friends I have since primary school. Eany, a friend who now lives on the other side of the planet, is in town over the weekend. She's in the country these couple of weeks to pay her folks and relatives a visit. Her husband Thane couldn't make it this time around though. The last time they were here was for thedinner reception last year. As usual, whenever she's in town, the old gang will hold a get-together of some sort. It's amazing that after all these years since we left school and taken on our own paths, we're still able to hold it together. But it's kinda funny that it actually takes a visit from someone from thousands of miles away to put all of us together in the same room when we're actually residing in the same country and vicinity for that matter! Eany, Alvin, Juanita, Grace, Geok Shin, Eany, Dipen (with fiancee Sharon), and myself had a good trip down the memory lane over dinner last Saturday. There was also a fair share of catching up with all the water that's been running under the bridge all this while with everyone. Some things never quite change though, like the friendly banters between Dipen and Grace (this wasthem in 2002 and this was them couple of nights ago! If only there were those from our schooling years that I can show... :P) Some things move on for the better. The Dipster himself will be tying the knot soon, Alvin recently made it asCleo's Most Eligible Bachelor 2004 himself! Heh! Who would've thought back when we're still wet behind the ears in primary school that we'd all be where we're at right now, eh?

How To (Accidentally) Shrink Your Waistline

15 July 2004 03:25

I've been skipping dinners a couple of times the past week. But for a moment this morning, I thought those dinner skips had shrunk me into aneroxic proportions overnight. Pulling on the khaki pants towards the waist, I was confounded to see several inches of waistline that's yet to be filled in, only to realize that those pants were my Dad's which I mistakenly grabbed out of the laundry (they look the same) when I went back home to Kajang over the weekend. Anyways, two possible implications here: 1. My Dad's wardrobe is becoming more "youthful" by the day (especially since he turned a year older a couple of days back). Or 2. I'm becoming like my Dad in terms of choice of clothes. Either way, I reckon it's still better than wearing something that can get you beingmistaken for a waiter at a warong.

A Friend's 48 Hour Stopover

11 July 2004 18:28

It's not always that a friend from a land halfway around the planet drops by the country for 48 hours just to catch up with some friends. That's Scott Reeves for you. The dude from Huntington, IN (as hip as that other town in Wyoming), whom most Malaysian students in Purdue circa 1996-2000 know, was in town a couple of days back. He was on his way back to the US of A after completing his stint with the Peace Corps in the Phillipines. He was supposed to come round and spend sometime here next month but has gotta bring everything forward (and shorten it) as his Dad is not that well back home. And it took a visit from a friend from the other side of the planet for me to be able to catch up withAbon and Raida (and their kid Aiman) as well, whom I last saw at their wedding in 2002. So last Thursday evening was essentially spent on catching up with all the water that's gone under the bridge the last couple of years with all of them over dinner at Subang. As usual, Scott took the opportunity to stock up on whatever food and fruits that he can lay his grubby hands on. He's the only Mat Salleh I know who loves durian so much that he actually smuggled some back to his hometown! Huntington, IN could definitely be hipper with a durian orchard there. Throw in a nasi lemak joint, it'll beat whatever Wyoming's gotta offer any day for sure! :P

Dah Buang Tabiat?

11 July 2004 17:19

Who says you can't get an ovation after doing the horizontal hokey pokey? All in the name of saving the rainforests. Excerpt:

Cumshots provided the background music as the couple had intercourse right in front of the audience. A banner was raised on stage informing the audience that the couple was having sex to save the rainforest. After completing the intercourse, the couple received applause from the audience and disappeared.

Top that, Woodstock!
