Netizen-introvert / real-world extrovert.

The internet exists because of 4 reasons:
1) chatting
2) emailing

4) blogging

You mean it's been 2 YEARS?! So anyway, hope to be back with a vengence soon!

As one can tell, it is evident, the state of desolation and ruin. Nonetheless, I have once again decide to re-uptake (the umpetenth time) web design again! Marginally hopefull, since I'm not starting from scratch but adopting frontpage-esque software to help me along.. I heard it's easy? Hmmn.

The future of my virtual life depends on it!

Amid all the buzz about a black president in a white country, Crichton is dead.

'Nuff said.

When words fail to describe the indescribable feel of feelings, I would eventually lose that feeling of loss that I'm feeling right now. Which is a pity. A loss. Right now, I don't know which to feel sader about.

Maybe 10 years from now, I would look back and define this moment to which I've read my last serious novel for pleasure.

To do list

Once all this thesis nonsense is finished, I will (in no particular order):

1. focus on attachment and all those kids! (oh, the kids! Those KIDS!)
2. set up wii.
3. buy Rockband for wii. (KIV)
4. play the damn machine.
5. watch movie - online or offline, I don't care!
6. sing KTV!! - as if I have not been singing enough... But it feels different ok, singing for fun, singing for money, singing out of obligation...
7. exercise!
8. play with photoshop! (if I can still remember how to)
9. watch the lamer show "blxh" (aka "taiwan ah lian")
10.pack my room - as always, I will try to.

Chinese saying: The drunken sailor was never about the wine

So our friendly neighbourhood giant has come out with a browser. They've created a comic book, that claims oh-so-many-wonderful-stuff, but to the average joe like me, that's just techie speech for saying it's 'rock-solid'.

From a layman's point of view, something more insiduous is happening here...

By appealing to the techie developers, it helps drive a community, and we've all seen what rabbid communities can do to drive fashion i-want products. Keeping the code accessible helps in the process, and more open-developers = more users (= more adverts) = more revenue?

This is never about the browser war. People like to rave about the burning godzilla browser, but the most useful function made famous out of it is already a commonplace everywhere - the tab. Again, the community likes to rave on about it because of the 'oh i discovered the browser first among my friends and I have to install it on everyone else's computer, 'cos that makes me cool' mentality.

I'm not really sure how modern IT industry works these days, but it all seem to be about market share. As long as a lot of people are using it, the money making opportunist will come looking for you. You don't even need to do anything about generating revenue, people will pay you to help them make more money!

Hence, it seems as though this supposed 'browser' seems to be an experiment to a greater plan. Monitoring tab resources, improving memory efficiency, maximising potential for it in sync with today's computer users... OS takeover anyone?

Think about it. If they manage to build a browser that's powerful enough to run any software and application, and do so efficiently, wouldn't it be so much more convenient to just run it through the 'chrome', since that's what I'm going to use all the time anyway?

The closet geek wetdream for everyone I'm sure is for OS compatibility. With such a do-it-all browser, the potential is endless. Sure, the slugfest between Mac and MS can carry on, while all glooggle needs to do is to provide a platform that seeks to integrate the two.

So bye bye word processors, media players, file managers, I'll just do it all in my chrome, thank you. And by keeping it open source, they don't even need to build it. Some guy just needs to tap on its potential and you have ready-made consumer driven products on your platform!

Naysayers may say, 'but the gaming community will never be satisfied'. Well, nobody ever said they're making an OS. Yet. Leeching it doesn't count. Plus, computer gaming are fighting a different front, as the trend to shift from PC to console continues. And it's true, the gaming community will never be satisfied, so let them build their own games on the platform!

Based on their past projects, they've flirted with desktops (I still miss the deskbar), and they claim to never make a browser of their own. Who's saying they're making a browser now? This is just a front for greater things to come.

Quote of the day

"Encircle, eviscerate and extirpate the odious ophidian." - Warriors Orochi

encircle: form a circle around
eviscerate: to deprive of vital content or force
extirpate: to destroy completely
odious: arousing or deserving hatred or repugnance
ophidian: of relating to or resembling snakes

This is one mean English translation from Japanese. I don't think I even know half of the words being mentioned until I checked up the dictionary...

Who says you can't learn anything from video games?




I am styling. I may have a bunch of fashion sense, but my macho man side leaks out here and there (mainly out my nose, I should buy some nose hair trimmers for Christ's sake!)

My blog is smart, insightful, and always a quality read. Truly appreciated by many, surpassed by only a few

What Art Form Are You? Hamlet
You are Drama. You are extroverted and like to show off, but can be very subtle and intelligent when you want. As an expert at story-telling, you love attention and have developed the skill of keeping it. You get along well with Literature and Film.

What Romance Movie Best Represents Your Love Life? When Harry Met Sally
Everyone remembers the 'faked-orgasm-in-a-deli' sequence from your kind of movie When Harry Met Sally. It seems that you're falling for a buddy or have already fallen for them. Uh-oh. You're probably caught between the possibility of having a great relationship and wrecking the one you have now. You know what they say, it's better to regret something you did than something you didn't do.
