Starting a new computer

Received a new (very old model) laptop,
BUT its got better specs then my old desktop.
Proves just how really old my desktop is.

In light of my current situation of furnishing the new laptop with the relevant softwares.

I thought it'd be a good idea to share it with you guys and girls.

Adobe Reader

To read the oh-so-universal PDF files.

AVG anti-virus
To keep those nasty viruses out

For downloading ... stuff.

For browsing the web.
*I honestly prefer Opera, but Firefox doesn't have those irritating ads.

Live Messenger/Yahoo Messenger/Google Talk
To keep in-touch with your friends

To keep those malicious spyware out

VLC Player
To play all your videos
*It even plays broken files ^^


To play your music

For zipping and unzipping of your files
*File Compression Software

Good thing about the list is that you can get all of em for free.
Most of them can be found at Download.com

Lightning Crashes

Lightning struck pretty close by the day before yesterday (13/12/006).

Knocked out my access to the internet.
Initially I thought only my network card had fried,
but upon further inspection,
I found out that my modem had partially fried too.

Funny thing.
I can see that it detects the DSL connection but
I can't seem to get it to connect through its ethernet port.

The lightning didn't just knock out my modem and NiC.
It also took out the outside router and even the DVD player.

Of all the expenses I had considered,
natural disasters were one that I overlooked.
It show that you cant really be perfect,
no matter how hard you try.

BUT sometimes ...
just sometimes ...
I believe we do get lucky.

Lamka and the Sexy Bar Girl

Lamka is a very shy guy.
One day he went into a bar
and saw a beautiful woman sitting at the bar.
After an hour of gathering up his courage
he finally went over to her
and asked,
"Would you mind if I buy you a drink?"

She responded by yelling, at the top of her lungs,
"No, I won't sleep with you tonight!"

Everyone in the bar is now staring at them.
Naturally, Lamka was hopelessly dejected
and completely embarrassed
and he sank back to his table.

After a few minutes,
the woman walked over to him and apologized.
She smiled at him and explained,
"I'm sorry if I've embarrassed you.
You see, I'm a graduate student in psychology
and I'm studying how people respond to embarrassing situations."

To which Lamka responded,
at the top of his lungs,
"What do you mean 500 Ringgit?"

p.s. Happy Birthday Najwa !
p.s.s. Happy Birthday Winston !

World AIDS Day

Watched the Brit Music Awards earlier.
They had really good performances.
Watching some of these preformances,
I realised something.

Unlike the MTV Awards which had
good shows,
the Brit Music Awards had
good performances.

And you can really see the energy,
if you've been in a concert or
played on stage infront of a supporting audience
then you'd know what i'm talking about.

The exchange of energy between
the performer and the audience,
back and forth,
off and on the stage.
Kind of like sex.
(NOT that i'd know anything much about it)

Yes there I said it, sex.
Its not a vulgar word,
but it IS generally considered a taboo subject,
to most people.
(NO i'm not talking about you perverted people I call my friends)

What I DO know about sex is that safe sex is important.

Officially the World AIDS Day is on
the 1st of December.

A few basic things to know about AIDS,
not that my readers don't already know it,
since you're all so smart and shit.
So this is more of a reminder to myself since I tend to be forgetful.

Stands for :
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)

Stands for :
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

HIV causes AIDS.
AIDS is the collection of symptoms.

p.s. Happy Birthday Davina!
