[Youtube] ATOW: Kristine Sa – “Consequence”

[Youtube] ATOW: Kristine Sa – “Consequence”

It is so late now. I am going to have lesson later. Crap. Anyway, I was listening toYoutube in the background while I was doing my work. And this is the last song (what a song to end the day).

Kristine Sa – Consequence

You were all things amazing to me
Made my life
Gave me air I could breathe
Everything you did seemed right
I felt so innocent

I went crazy so crazy for you
Gave my heart
Lost my mind payed my dues
Then you pushed me aside
You took my confidence

And now I feel like I’m lost in this world
And I fell like I’m dieing
And I feel for the life that we shared
But you made it all disappear
Love and it’s consequence

I walked back to this place I felt faith
In my mind I’m the girl of your dreams
I refuse to realize that you were an accident

I can’t blame you for not wanting me
I reclaim but there’s no guarantee
That you would not leave me behind
I have my evidence

And now I feel like I’m lost in this world
And I fell like I’m dieing
And I feel for the life that we shared
But you made it all disappear
Love and it’s consequence

P.S. Take it as Artist of the Week also…

Notes and more notes

Notes and more notes

Typing new notes can be a bitch, especially when there is an urgent need to incorporate different sources into one… My eyes are going @.@ over all the jargons used in the texts…

OK, back to study!

[Facebook Video] How to get out of a Boring lecture… THE POWER RANGERS’ STYLE!!!

From an hour of lurking in Facebook:

Universities are sure boring… First a prank from NTU, now another prank from another… I won’t be surprised if this gets STOMP-ed like NTU’s.

OK, back to sleep. Intensive study is on when I wake up!

P.S. I accidentally deleted this post… Morning blues… Sorry.

Timetable!

Timetable!

Years ago, I did a weekly timetable out of Excel from scratch to help me in my studies. I lost that softcopy since then. Now to help myself again, I have to waste some more time on re-creating the timetable. However instead of creating the template from scratch, I decided to “out-source” the template. I found an Excel template online at Vertex42.com. Based on that template, I came up with an extended design (I didn’t like time range of 5am to 8pm only):

I will not be distributing the additional file (it took me 1.5 hours to modify the file) due to the restrictions placed by the original creator. However, please support him by downloading his stuff at his site. Back to studies!

P.S. Before I go, here is a video and a link: How To Find Time… For Everything!

My lecturer just produced some frightening figures from last semester’s exam papers. Apparently, the four papers I am taking are among those with the lowest passing rate. Hence, it is time for me to drop my happy-go-lucky attitude from now on. My updates on the Net is increasingly rare and it will remain this way. I will have to drop Plurk, Facebook and Twitter for the time being. That means no more Facebook games, increase in Plurk karma or Klout.net’s Influence summary. Most of my time on the computer will be spent on more constructive sites.

Till 15 December! And oh, my ORD date is 14th December. What a busy Christmas month.

Email virus

Email virus

Virus attack!
Virus attack!

A friend of mine got hit by a virus and it blasted an email (titled: d超猛的情書c) to everyone, hoping that someone else’s computer would get infected by it too. Virus part was not funny, however the message was kinda mushy:

親愛的Honey:

我對妳1見鍾情 絕無2心 想照顧妳3輩子
因為我偷偷上妳的網站4次
妳那迷人的5官 總讓我6神無主 一顆心7上8下 許9不能平息
如果我的滿分是10分 妳一定不止11分 起碼也該有12分
只可惜我討厭13這個數字 不然妳一定有14分
如果再加上妳的聰明那又不止15分 16分妳一定還嫌少 所以我給了妳17分
我今年18歲 再過幾天就19歲 也就是我還未滿20歲
今年大概會二一唄 所以得交22萬的學費
其實我的智商是阿甘的23倍 只是我24小時都在睡
我猜妳今年未滿25歲 26我也無所謂
27跟我還是很配 28也不過才大我10歲
29的女人據說最美 30我會考慮考慮唄 31我應該沒這麼衰
32我會開始反胃 33我寧願自己一個人睡 34敢釣我18歲?? 我娘也才35歲~~
但我還是想送妳36朵玫瑰 但摸摸口袋我只剩37塊
戶頭也只剩38元 因為跟女友分手在39天前 手機每天得打40塊美元
永遠記得41天前 寫下42句愛她的誓言
還有43種我想的永遠 卻只換來44cc真情的眼淚 加上45夜輾轉難眠
老實說我打了46句廢言 其實妳該從47句開始看
但是妳都看到了第48句 只寫49又覺得怪怪的
那就哈啦到50湊個整數吧…..
第51句我要說聲我想妳
第52句我要說聲我愛妳
但第53句我暫時還沒想到所以直接跳過54句…來到55句…
這時我想起56分鐘前的妳 不知道妳有沒有想起57分鐘後的我
我在這想了58分鐘又59秒 我總共找到60種想妳的念頭
61個愛妳的理由 62句適合我倆的情話 還有63段電影浪漫的邂逅
雖然我也找到妳64個小缺點 但幸好我也找到妳65個優點
尤其是妳的腰只有66cm 這會讓我沉迷67年
與其我愛妳說68遍 還不如我愛妳寫滿69頁
反正我們還有70年 這份工作麻煩讓我拖個71個月
妳的愛慕者一定不止72位 因為我是那第73位
但我要定下妳74年 反正我會付妳時薪75元
就算要追妳追76個月 只要妳能陪我過77情人節
花掉我78萬我也心甘情願
看完我寫下的79句真心話 我猜80%你會願意當我的女朋友
因為妳發現了我81處迷人的地方
還有82個妳無法拒絕我牽妳的手
就算你有83個逃避的藉口
我也會有84種留妳的理由
好啦!我加薪加到85 麻煩你陪我到86歲
就算妳皺紋是以前的87倍 我還是願意對妳說88遍我愛妳
我們已經錯過民國89年 90年也只剩不到幾天
91年妳還好意思不讓我在你身邊
對妳訴說我對妳那92句不變的依戀
我摘不下93萬光年外的北極星
但我願買下94隻妳愛的胡椒貓
陪妳去看95遍流星雨
也許我不能活到96歲
不能陪著妳97年
但同樣的一件事我會做98遍…..
在妳生日那天送上99朵紫玫瑰
做妳心目中的100分的那位

I am glad that my grasp of traditional Chinese words is not as good as simplified words. Otherwise, I would have died laughing from the 1st reading.

Jokes aside, the said friend asked me for advice to deal with this. In any common geeky sense:

  1. Change your password regularly. It is the best if the password is totally different from other Internet accounts that you have.
  2. Change your security question and answer regularly. Logic: If hackers/scripts can get to your password, the security feature may also be compromised.
  3. Scan your computer with the latest definition that the anti-virus/spware/adware software has periodically. A virus may reside in the system and snarling unwary users.
  4. Use https functionality for your emails. This email came from a Hotmail account, unlike Gmail, it does not have https functionality for the web version. If you use Hotmail, I recommend using POP3 or SMTP functions that Hotmail has. More information: look here.
  5. Think before you open any attachments in emails, even if they are from your friends.
  6. For the extreme paranoid people, do not use public computers if you do not have a need to check your emails. Some computers may have keyloggers installed in the system. The information captured would then be passed onto other people.
  7. For laptop/mobile devices users: Lock your device with a password when you live the devices out in the open. Without a password, you are giving anyone a free entry into cyberworld from your point of view (that includes your facebook, instant messaging, etc).

The list above is not comprehensive, but it should be sufficient. Happy surfing!
