Dangerous Games

Everyday’s but just a game. Just play along.

Bingzhi 7 – 1 Excel VBA

I’ve finally downed the boss known as “Programming for Business : Term Assignment”.

And I can’t help but be amazed by the scoreline of the recent Man U vs Roma match where Roma got humiliated by such a jaw-dropping score difference. But I am sure that this is a once in a lifetime performance by Manchester United and they will never be able to do the same against another club of such high European stature ever again.

Liverpool will reach the crowning glory of Champions League champion again this season!

Such is the spirit in me at this moment! But alas, joy never lasts long in this world. I pull myself back to reality and stare away from my computer screen. There lies my textbooks and notes. The dungeon crawl through the Caverns of Study is not over yet. I shall emerge victorious and gain myself an EPIC weapon of some sort.

Geekalogy

I’m a geek. I spent 3hrs before dinner programming in VBA for Excel.  After an hour long dinner, I spent another 5 hrs on the programme. I did all this almost never leaving the chair staring at the laptop screen. I wonder how I still have perfect eyesight. That’s a whoooooping 8hrs worth of programming and I’ve been working on it ever since I woke up. I never knew I could do something like that unless I’m playing a game like Football Manager, Final Fantasy, Civilization or World of Warcraft.

Other than that, I’m planning to learn Apache, PHP, MySQL and xHTML asap. So you all might expect a change in blog address again shortly. But those are skills that are more Code-y.

0805-photoshop.gifPhotoshop is a definite must learn during the holidays. CS3 is out but I’m not converting yet. Not converting to Windows Vista yet either. But I may be uninstalling BootCamp and trying a virtualization programme instead so that I can spend more time on my Mac OS X.

Went to play VS  with Alan and gang at Serene Centre on Tuesday. Marvel Team Up expansion set is already out. Seems interesting, but not enough to make me spend more money on those cards. And yes, I haven’t touched those cards in ages. Took a long time during the draft scrutinising all the text on the cards before choosing, but that didn’t help me from losing all the games that I played. Haha. Talk about being a noob. That night, I was a Level 100 Noob.

world_of_warcraft_the_burning_crusade_pc.jpgAnd yeah, they’re already doing Level 70 dungeons in World of Warcraft : The Burning Crusade. I miss playing World of Warcraft, but I do need a steady income before I venture back into my beloved game. And if I can, I’ll sponsor my dearest girlfriend to play with me! LOL.

To feed my cravings for comics, I have also downloaded Earth X, Universe X and Paradise X. I’ve read Earth X when I was in TDS. Can’t wait to finish the series. Of course I still have the whole Spawn series, the Civil War series to complete as well. More holidays past time!!! And exams haven’t even started.

And so,  here goes. I’m going back to my dungeon crawl to slay the mobs known as “webcasts”, “textbooks” and “notes” and hopefully gain enough level before I encounter the dungeon boss affectionately known as “EXAM!!!”. Yes, it has 3 exclamation marks in its name. If I have not gained enough level, the boss will easily crush me but I cannot say the same for the rest of my brethren kind. Dungeon crawls of this manner is never fun, but for the sake of survival against this onslaught… I have to persevere……

The Latest and Final Spider-man 3 Trailer

This is the final trailer before Spider-man 3’s 1st May release in Singapore.

There’s no mistake. We will get to see Eddie Brock as Venom albeit a slimmer version of it.

Sony’s PS3 has gone global.

Alright!

For all good guys out there, it’s true. The PS3 has gone global and has been shipped out of the US. Which also mean you could get your hand on one of those mean machines out there soon. Or maybe later.

I would not recommend getting one soon though due to a few facts :

1. Games

The current selection of games is just pathetic. Not just talking about the quantity but there is a serious lacking of quality games to indulge in. Give it a year or 2 and we’ll start to enjoy blockbusters like FF13, Resident Evil 5, more Winning Eleven, Dragon Quests and better Gran Turismo that actually make good use of the system’s power. Mediocre games are just not meant for this machine.

2. The Machine

Early produced machines that are shipped may or may not have bugs or problems and are rarely detected. It would be a good idea to wait till these first batch are gone before buying your own PS3 as Sony would probably have fixed the problems and shipped out good sets by then.

3. The Mod

Early modification chips may also not be the best. As time passes, those people behind the mod chips will find more exploits and only those later mod chips will contain them. So for people who modify, just wait it out. It will be worth the wait.

Overall, this is the platform to buy if you are in to RPGs. PlayStation has always been known for RPG games and games like Devil May Cry. Action packed stuff right here and I have seen the graphics rendered by a PS3. Divine. So I will get it, just waiting for the right time.

Do note that you will however miss out on great games like Gears Of War that are only available on the Xbox360. We will never get the best of both worlds will we?

Yahoo users get unlimited e-mail storage

Competition heats up. Gmail and Yahoo Mail are currently the 2 free web-based email service providers that provide the largest storage space available and even though Gmail has always been known for the large amount of space, Yahoo Mail has followed up by allowing 1gb worth of storage space recently to the free subscribers and 2gb for the paid subscribers.

Yahoo has now removed the cap and made email storage space unlimited. This is in tune with the usage of the internet where users are now sending more pictures and videos to each other via email.

I applaud Yahoo Mail in making such a decision, but changing of email account is not an easy thing to do. Like changing your street address, it follows with many hassles. How can Yahoo Mail simplify the switching of email addresses? How can it market the removal of the 1gb cap?

I need to catch up with my studies.

It is time. 4 weeks to exams and I’m lagging by the bucket loads.

It has been a week. A wonderful week and surely more and much more to come.  So many plans, so many things to do, so little time. And time passes even faster now. Why can’t time just come to a stand still at times?

For a testosterone filled evening, go watch this movie and feel the high. It’s amazing. Beautiful cinematography and choreography of fight scenes. Brilliant story by Frank Miller.

It’s a story about how King Leonidas and his 300 warriors fight through hordes of Persian army despite insurmountable odds.

I seriously think they should market their movie more. Make more money by advertising products. They should use Adidas sandals, wear Adidas crotch guards, use Adidas capes and of course don’t forget Adidas short bronze sword, shield and spear. Why you ask?

Cause they show us that
