Bergombal ria

One night on the driveway...
I hold her hands.
"Girl, you know what, this could be our last hang out. I'll be leaving on the jet plane tomorrow. Just wanna thank you, you've been a very wonderful angel. I wish we could spend more and more time together. But I guess, time's just not on our side."

One night on the driveway...
She was just smiling.

One night on the driveway...
I hate myself.

My First DSLR

Wah, bener-bener dah gue kagum ama teknologi DSLR, setelah sekian lama menunggu akhirnya ada kesempatan memiliki DSLR Canon EOS 10D, dengan teknologi CMOS Sensor yang menurut canon noiseless dan low power ketimbang teknologi CCD. Kamera yang gue pegang ini tergolong mulus untuk kategory 2nd hand alias bekas. Dilengkapi dengan Battery Pack BG-ED3 yang berfungsi juga sebagai vertical grip, kelebihan menggunakkan vertical grip / battery pack yaitu adanya 2 ruang batre yang bisa digunakan sehingga memudahkan fotographer untuk tidak perlu khawatir akan kehabisan batre, satu batre BP-511 standar canon dapat digunakan untuk 600 shot (canon spec).

Canon EOS 10D tergolong kamera profesional memiliki body yang terbuat dari magnesium alloy, dengan spec sbb :

I Feel Sad Again ... Sort Of

Carrie won AI4. Bo lost.

Well, to be fair, Carrie did perform very well in that final, especially her last song. THAT was the clincher.

And both definitely deserves to be in the final.

I Feel Happy

45 minutes: Milan 3-0 Liverpool

60 minutes: Milan 3-3 Liverpool

120 minutes: Milan 3-3 Liverpool

Penalty: Milan 2-3 Liverpool


Very emotional game. Well worth staying up for B-)

I Feel Sad

I feel sad to see in this new world of internet, how easy it is for people to spread misinformation without being held responsible. I know it's been going on for a while what with all those conspiracy theorist and "help raise money to cure our son's cancer by forward this email" emails.

At least if somebody forwards you such email, you have a chance to rebuke.

But what if it's an article on the web? Yesterday I stumbled into this site while doing some search in Google:

A critique of Einstein

At first I felt angry when I read it. But after it was over, I felt more sad than angry. Sad not because somebody's criticizing Einstein, but sad by how such blatant misinformation is easily spread in this age of internet.

Imagine people who does not know better reading this article. It would be nice if everybody thinks critically, but that's wishful thinking. Especially if you consider the type of people who visits sites with religious slant such as this one. I wager most will swallow his "argument" whole.

Primacy of observation over doctrine. How I wish ... how I wish.

Pinoy Date

She's not all that! But, everytime she smiles...it's taking my breath away. And there it goes, finally I got a chance to have a little chit-chat with this lady. Until someday,
"It seems so hard to find spicy foods here in the city.."
"You should try the Yellow Cab Pizza.."
There she goes, this is just the right time for me.
"Is it? where can I find it? Hm...how do you like to go out with me, let's go to this place."
And my heart's just beating harder and harder.
"Sure, why not, but you're gonna have to treat me."
"Why not? You free this weekend?"
"Yup, in the afternoon!"
"Great! 5/6?"
"OK, I'll meet you there!"
And...that's where the story begins.....

NAV Blues

Ketempat client, di Clementi, IE nya ngaco dan NAV nya corrupt.

First step: Clean spywares. Install Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware SE, SpywareBlaster, and HijackThis.

Cleaned 140 spywares, removed several IE hijacks. IE working fine but for some reason can't connect to HTTPS. Solution according to MS: reinstall SP2 ... blah, don't feel like it.

Second step: Install Firefox + FlashPlayer + JRE 1.50. Works perfectly.

Third step: Reinstall Norton AntiVirus.

Because it was bought online, no CD was provided and the original download went missing. Had to register and re-download again. I must say ... very fast internet indeed :)

Next, run the installation program. Asked wether want to do pre-install scan. Well ... doesn't hurt, does it? Clicked "Yes".

30 minutes later ... still scanning and no end in sight ... grrrrrr ... clicked "Abort Scan".

Continued installing ... yada yada yada ... dum doo dee dum ... this is a freaking slow installer ... dum deee dum ... Norton AntiVirus encountered internal error ... invalid type in XXXX.html .... ?????????

Checked symantec.com. Apparently the NAV user interface is in HTML and dependent on IE!!!!



Installed AVG.
Problem solved.
