Nomad Jukebox's New Firmware Rocks!

23 September 2001 18:32

I just downloaded and patched my Creative Nomad Jukebox's firmware to V2.93 and I can tell you that Creative has finally got something right out for once! Ever since I upgraded my NJB's harddisk from 6GB to 20GB, the darn thing was taking like 3-4 minutes to boot up as opposed to just about 40 seconds with the 6GB. This new firmware takes it back down to 30 seconds. I'm one happy beaver now!

Adik in Ralph Girl Finals

23 September 2001 03:31

Uhmmm... forgot to mention this way, way earlier but my sister actually made it to the finals of the Ralph Girl competition. I'll just sit back and see how the whole thing goes. I just can't stand all the primping and preening that's going around in the house, not to mention the mirror hogging as well. You're saying I should be more supportive of my sister and all that. Well, I AM gonna be supportive if she wins the whole thing and gets the family on that cruise trip to Phuket! Heh! We could all use some vacation.

ISP's Serious Lag-ness (Part 2)

23 September 2001 03:17

So it turns out that it wasn't the Nimda virus that's causing all the lag on the ISP network. Saw in the newspaper this morning that apparently some undersea cables that connects Asia to the US got cut off. As usual, this has either to do with some fishing trawlers accidentally cutting off those cables when they drag their nets or those sharks thinking those undersea fibre-optic cables look rather tasty. I dunno but I seem to get really restless whenever I have a really bad connection to the 'Net or even when the electricity goes out. Feels like I can't do anything much. Shows you how much of my life is dependant on those two things. I know, I know. I should reprioritize things in my life. I'm gonna be cleaning my room now...

Wes Borland's State Of The Nation Address

22 September 2001 06:53

Even Wes Borland (lead guitarist of Limp Bizkit) gets it with regards on the recent hate-crimes being targetted at Arab-Americans. I quote, "People by themselves are smart, but those same people put into a large group can become very stupid." Reminds me of this poster that I really, really wanna get my hands on.

ISP's Serious Lag-ness

22 September 2001 02:35

Now this really bites. It seems like everytime there's a new virus attack around, JARING's network would just grind to a halt. :( It happened before during the proliferation of the Code Red virus and I'm guessing this time it's due to the Nimda virus (Heh! I just got it! 'Nimda' is 'Admin' spelt backwards! But why?). C'mon! You're the nation's premier ISP for crying out loud! What kind of service is this?! This is definitely not what I expect, especially since I'm PAYING for it. Mind you, I've been a subscriber of theirs since 1996! Looks like I'll be using TIMENet for a while, at least until Nimda's blown over. I used to use MAXISNet as my backup ISP but since they've decided to go for the pay model, TIMENet looks like a good alternative as a backup ISP in case JARING's connection gets flaky.

I'm not kidding ya! Try looking at this page using some sorta LCD display from an angle! It's phat I tell ya!

George W. Bush Visits Mosque in Washington D.C.

19 September 2001 11:37

Now here's something that I had high hopes about ever happening, and when it happened I was pleased to no end. I saw on thenews just now that U.S. President George W. Bush made a visit to the Islamic Center in Washington D.C., apparently in the wake of hate-crimes targeted towards Muslims after the attack on the WTC and the Pentagon. For him to actually come out in support of the Muslim Americans is something that I certainly appreciate and respect him for. Those fuckheads who took the WTC down certainly do not represent the whole majority of the Muslim community worldwide nor the true faith of Islam. Click here for the transcript of his comments.

Personal Website Manager V0.7

19 September 2001 02:05

Aight! After laboring for about three weeks in my spare time, I can declare that I've hit a milestone as far as the core administration engine that handles the contents for this website. There are still lots to do though, i.e. cleaning up codes, tightening up some bits here and there, idiot-proofing some parts, etc. Hence the reason for it being at V0.7. I'm gonna make it at V1.0 once it's all done and perhaps release the source code for it for any of you out there who might wanna use it for their own. Why? 'Cos I'm nice!

Mayhem, Pandemonium in NYC; US under attack

12 September 2001 20:24

I was actually glued to the television set for over 5 hours just now. And it was in one sitting. Certainly a record for me in recent times. What I saw unravel before my own eyes on the telly could have been cooked up by some Hollywood movie producer. I actually had to check that my cable box wasn't really tuned in to some movie channel or anything 'cos the stuff that was showing could've been, except it wasn't. It was on live television. What was a significant part of the New York City skyline is no longer there. The twin towers of the World Trade Center got levelled when two apparently hijacked civillian aircraft crashed just minutes apart of each other. In Washington DC, another hijacked civillian plane crashed into the Pentagon, plunging the United States into full alert with all flights being grounded nationwide and US military on the highest alert. The White House and other federal and governmental offices were evacuated as well. It's the most well thought out, coordinated and sophisticated act of terrorism that has hit the US on their own soil in recent times. My God. I'm actually lost for words to describe the whole situation really. Nobody deserves to be on the receiving end of such brutal act and certainly no religion ever condone such things. My thoughts and prayers go out to those innocent lives perished in the moment of madness, mayhem and chaos.

If flower is the reproductive structure found on plants, the phrase “Wake up and smell the plant genitals!” would be accurate then.
