The Last Post?

27 05 2008

This might very well be this blog’s last post. I’m thinking of trying out something new in the next few days.

The Down Fever

26 05 2008

I’ve got friends who thinks their whole life is a failure, everything they do is wrong. The world hates them and they hate themselves too. Seriously, I don’t understand why. I can’t stand having a conversation with them because they kind of irritate me. Here are some true examples of what they will say.

Me: What do you like to do in your free time?
Them: Find a quiet place, play some sad songs and cry.

Me: But why cry?
Them: My life sucks. I don’t like my family, my friends are avoiding me. I’m so hurt. I’m so ugly, nobody will like me. [And the list goes on…]

Me: The world is so beautiful!
Them: Forget it, it’s useless. I hate this world, it has done nothing for me.

Okay, now I’m getting irritated – even by typing out some scenarios. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong being sad. But there’s something wrong when you’re sad for your entire life.

Parrots Talk, Don’t They?

23 05 2008

This is a parrot. It’s name is Mr. Yosuke Nakamura. Apparently, this parrot flew out of his cage and got lost in Japan. Nothing amazing? Wait till you hear what happens next.

Police rescued the African grey parrot two weeks ago from a neighbor’s roof in the city of Nagareyama, near Tokyo. After spending a night at the station, he was transferred to a nearby veterinary hospital while police searched for clues, local policeman Shinjiro Uemura said.

He kept mum with the cops, but began chatting after a few days with the vet.

“I’m Mr. Yosuke Nakamura,” the bird told the veterinarian, according to Uemura. The parrot also provided his full home address, down to the street number, and even entertained the hospital staff by singing songs.

Japanese are a bunch of funny people. I mean, in one article alone – I’ve so many questions to ask! First of all, who would teach their parrot to identify itself with “Mr.”? Secondly, why does the police need to rescue a parrot from a roof?

Thirdly, doesn’t the local police have anything else to do than rescuing parrots and search for clues to find out where they live? The Japanese never fail to amaze me with the things that they do.

Talking about pets, I feel like keeping a small turtle. Maybe I can name it Mr. David Armstrong.

Engineering Essentials

In school, I’ve this module called Engineering Essentials.

It’s difficult, boring, full of numbers and formulas. The End.

Free Software: Backup

19 05 2008

Bought the Creative I-Trigue 200 speakers today. My rig is now officially completed.

Few months back, my Toshiba laptop died on me – taking away all my photos and documents. But I wasn’t worried at all because I did a backup using MozyHome days before it died. That link brings you to the paid version which gives you unlimited storage. The free version only gives you 2GB storage.

But here’s a better deal, registering through this link gives you (and me) an additional 256MB of free backup space. If that method fails, simply key in Q9NB8K for the referral code.
