iPhone life

Having a iPhone its have a phone combined with a iPod Touch! I just changed the SIM card to mine for a day because my phone battery has died yesterday (means now its charging) and guess what...although I'm a temporary user..somehow I felt like it's all about THIS:

Yeah its all about Applications and Games...
Endlessly playing games and listening to musics...facebook..messenger, ebuddy..e-mail...also addictive applications and softwares!

BUT! Remember my previous post about iPhone's disadvantages? Yeah it really exists! Short battery life...uncustomizable, non open-sourced really made me down on this phone...Except if you Jailbreak it...I Jailbroken the iPhone already....but it's just frustrating that you have to download almost everything on Cydia...

BTW Brian's mom just bought a N97 mini =O, oh man that thing is sexy...I wonder is it the Raoul's Edition? OMG =O

Another touching post by a girl, my tears are just gonna drip down...

POST Copied from:

Stacy German

I was in journalism class when this happened. I was just 17 years old, about to be 18, when a girl from our class rushed in crying saying the pentagon had been bombed. Our teacher (who at the time I had a crush on, I can remember that, it's funny how these things stick in your mind) rushed out and we followed him. There was a large TV in the library, and I got there in time to see the second plane hit. Over and over they played it. And I sat there and watched.

I couldn't cry. I couldn't even talk. I stood there dumbly as someone screamed and a tower fell. And then the second tower. And for a few minutes the world was black. There was a girl screaming in the hallway, because her dad was in the tower working there. He lived in NY, we lived in Indiana. She was lucky, he didn't go into work that day because he was sick. But I can still hear her screaming in the back of my mind. My teacher came up behind me and put his hand on my shoulder, and my best friend was squeezing my hand. ANd in the days that follwed I told everyone I ever knew how much I loved them. I hugged the muslim kids we had, because they were just as horrified as I was that someone using their faith as an excuse could kill so many innocent people. I even got my ass kicked for protecting one of them from a bunch of stupid drunk college kids going on a rampage.

Over the years we've forgotten that togetherness. That moment were we weren't a nation of who likes Bush/Obama/Cheney/Palin...we weren't a nation of blacks/whites/chinese/germans... We were just Americans rushing out to give blood, or money, or time to help each other. I wish, I wish with all of my heart, we hadn't lost that feeling. Because right now we'd be on a much better path if we hadn't immediately started hating each other again.

Dramatic post =)

A very nice and intuitive post from my friend...

Ah well I just copied the whole post here =)

How would YOU decide?

While enjoying your weekend with your loved ones, please enjoy the following too:
I think u might have read this earlier or rather something similar .....still worth reading
Insight into Decision Making - Good One:
A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other disused.
Only one child played on the disused track, the rest on the operational track.
The train is coming, and you are just beside the track interchange.
You can make the train change its course to the disused track and save most of the kids.
However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the disused track would be sacrificed.
Or would you rather let the train go its way?
Let's take a pause to think what kind of decision we could make........ ........
Scroll down

Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one child.
You might think the same way, I guess.
Exactly, to save most of the children at the expense of only one child was rational decision
most people would make, morally and emotionally.
But, have you ever thought that the child choosing to play on the disused track had in fact
made the right decision to play at a safe place?
Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where the danger was.
This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday.
In the office, community, in politics and especially in a democratic society, the minority is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how farsighted and knowledgeable the minority are.
The child who chose not to play with the rest on the operational track was sidelined.
And in the case he was sacrificed, no one would shed a tear for him.
The great critic Leo Velski Julian who told the story said he would not try to change the course of the train because he believed that the kids playing on the operational track should have known very well that track was still in use, and that they should have run away if they heard the train's sirens..
If the train was diverted, that lone child would definitely die because he never thought the train could come over to that track!
Moreover, that track was not in use probably because it was not safe.
If the train was diverted to the track, we could put the lives of all passengers on board at stake!
And in your attempt to save a few kids by sacrificing one child, you might end up sacrificing hundreds of people to save these few kids.
While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made, we may not realize that hasty decisions may not always be the right one.
'Remember that what's right isn't always popular... and what's popular isn't always right.'
Everybody makes mistakes; that's why they put erasers on pencils.


It's been quite a mind-blowing year, two-thousand-nineee, which is the first year of my Senior school life.

The beginning of the year it's like a complete STRAIGHT nightmare for me, everything changed...only like 5% similarity as last year. But luckily I got used to it very fast and I learned something: "Live your life, Don't let Life rule You!", everything seems to be veteran, even communicating with teachers, subjects, projects...exams..It's like a complete different world to me. But I walked out without any pain. Friends were helping me out when I faced difficulties, they helped me when I need them most, they chat with me, they played with me, of course not to forget..they skipped class with me (1 time only xD)...Sometimes when they sleep I always shake them up so they can accompany If I were them I'll give the guy a punch or something...It just felt that I liked to annoy peoples in class, now I dont wanna do that again..EVER (Let's see whether how long will it LAST =P) It's not like 2008, which I always hang out with friends almost every week, now I dont have time anymore, weekends I spend time with BOOKS and well...just message with peoples all the time. Even I think that they dont have time, they seemed full with tuitions.

Now talking about what happened this year, the most remarkable one is...Concert! Well because I got involved in a drama which is just..well not in my mind at all....but from a totally useless guy when it comes to performing turns into a guy that can actually PERFORM on stage is a big change..Seeing peoples improve day by day, seconds by seconds is just...fascinating! Thanks to Ms. Jill, and the ones which got involved (Becca, Hsien's sis(s), Kah Hui's sis(s), James and John and Ms. Jill), walking here and there...try to find excuses not to go back to class, stay in choir room, library..messing in I miss those times..

Before I end this post, I'm gonna say...This year, I helped a girl to walk out from her nightmares after breaking up with her ex, cheering her up...accompany her whenever possible..It's been a good experience for me...but sometimes I actually received 10+ messages filled with "oi" because I fall asleep suddenly but I find it a unforgettable experience =O. Bad things does happen, but I just need to live with it.

It's been a good year, yeah it is! I heart 2009!

New PC...

Just got back my dad's PC from his and my bro were cleaning this "mess" up, backup...format....install Windows 7! Drivers..drivers....this PC doesnt even have Messenger installed haha....I havent downloaded it YET.
Here's the full spec list:

Intel Core i5 750
6GB DDR3 1066 (ValueRams...LOL)
Asus P7P55D Deluxe LGA1156 Motherboard
Asus HD4850 512MB DDR3 (Overclocked)
Galaxy 9800GT 1GB Lo-power Edition (as PhysX processor)
1x 1.0TB (1000GB) WD Caviar Black HDD
1x 1.0TB - WD Caviar Green HDD
Cooler Master CM690
Cooler Master Silent Pro M Series 850W Modular PSU
LG DVD+/-RW Lightscribe Drive
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Result: Blazingly Impressive =D, except for the 512MB 4850 though...because I'm now running a 1080p compatible monitor, so the texture quality cannot go further than medium...going to try using 9800GT as primary sometime =) I just bought 3 games...Ninja Blade, Colin Mcrae Dirt 2, Left 4 Dead probs running at ALL! the graphics settings are already all highest/max =D. But definitely a 1Gb card for next GPU for sure...because 1080 eats lots of vid. memory...

As back to my life, my cousin came to my house until 27 basically they are just entertaining me when I'm bored haha, BUT...they tend to play games more haha =D. My phone's battery is abnormal...(its bigger than usual size), so I decided not to use that phone temporarily and switch to iPhone 3G....I need someone to chat with me!! but my phone's credit are all out =(

That's all peoples =) peace out!

GTAIV Settings: (My satisfied settings)
Resolution: 1440x900
Texture Quality: High
Reflection Resolution: Medium (I notice that because the game is basically dark it doesnt need very good ref.s)
Water Quality: Very High
Shadow Quality: Very High
Texture Filter: Highest
Draw Distance: 25
Detail Distance: 20
Vehicle Density: 50
Shadow Density: 4
Definition: Off
Vsync: On

NFS Carbon also runs in 55-60FPS Solid, Saints Row 2...25-40 (It's a badly optimized play it, you vomit haha)
