Reading Time: 2 minutesBeing random and bored (Yes, I am bored in the midst of examinations), my interest in arcade perked up when this post came up in my Facebook newsfeed: What is Taiko no Tatsujin? I am not familiar with Japanese names of the games, being a visual person, Flickr comes up with this image: Anyway, I am not interested in the game. Rather I am interested in the arcade itself. Singapore is dotted with many arcade outlets, dominated by the likes…

Of: Spam comments

Reading Time: 1 minuteThe Akismet system is not totally fool-proof. Yet I trust it complete when they mark certain comments as spam. And I would click on Empty Spam without second thoughts. However, there are hams among it. And that’s a problem to me. I clicked on the Empty Spam button this morning as usual.

PADate.class

Reading Time: 1 minuteI am close to my wits’ end (for now), so I decided to run PADate.class for fun through a Java decompiler: import java.util.GregorianCalendar; public class PADate { private GregorianCalendar gc; public PADate() { this.gc = new GregorianCalendar(); this.gc.set(11, 0); this.gc.set(13, 0); this.gc.set(14, 0); } public PADate(int paramInt1, int paramInt2, int paramInt3) { this.gc = new GregorianCalendar(); this.gc.set(1, paramInt1); this.gc.set(2, paramInt2 – 1); this.gc.set(5, paramInt3); this.gc.set(11, 0); this.gc.set(13, 0); this.gc.set(14, 0); } public PADate nextDayOfWeek(String paramString) { PADate localPADate = new…

Live crabs coming near you!

Live crabs coming near you!

Reading Time: 1 minuteI saw this video from Chillycrap’s blog post. It is a truly novel way to get the crabs out in the market, and they even offer a 1 dead for 3 live crabs replacement guarantee. Got me wondering. How did they stuff the crabs into the tiny little boxes?

Short-takes: Slack

Short-takes: Slack

Reading Time: 1 minuteDespite of having a busy schedule, I feel that I am getting too slack at studies. Time to buck up! Oh, by the way, this blog is undergoing revamp. For starters, I have changed the theme to Arras. Next on the list: Background image Streamlining of the bloated list of categories. In a sense, this revamp will be the model for the upcoming choir site which is in the works.   Image credit: renjith krishnan / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Of EZ-Link Phone

Reading Time: 1 minutebunny has posted something on extracting the RFID chip from EZ-Link card and grafting it onto his phone. I wonder if we can do it with just acetone to cut the time spent on soldering (besides, I do not have the soldering equipment, nor have the replacement RFID antenna). Link: RFID Transplantation
