I learnt a few things following yesterday's power failure incident.

  • I need a new battery for the UPS which is connected to my modem and router, darn thing only lasted 30 mins last night.
  • Get a USB powered fan, preferdably one that has a stand so I can use it to cool WZ.
  • Get one of those shake powered flashlights, preferdably the original Forever Flashlight.

Great.. About 9PM... the power suddenly, completely cut out.. the whole street has blacked out.. and it seems like according to my cousin.. a lot of PJ has blacked out... JOY! Wonder how long can the backup lights last till they go out and WZ is left in the dark...

Previously there was only 2 kinds of people you'd meet when you were playing online in say.. on XBox Live.

The people who play games, or the people who heckle/sneer/curse while trying to play games.

More recently there's an additional bunch of people who like to let the other gamers on their teams know about their views of the current geopolitical issue. So you got people who are ganging up on people from certain countries, or just being an ass to people from certain countries.

Come on people!!! We're trying to have some fun online here I don't care what your polictical beliefs are, if you're on the opposing team I cap your ass, if you're on my team I cover your ass, that's unless you're a bad teammate, if not THEN I'll cap your ass.

The client wanted us to make a simple system that picks a random choice out of 3 items, it was a simple task and it was done within a few hours. But then after using the system for a while, the client comes back and says, it's picking item 3 most of the time, can you make it not do that? Sure.. we could add a weightage to the selector, but wouldn't that be NOT random anymore? in fact.. since there were so little choices, how can you say that the favoring of one item makes it NOT random? After all if you could expect what item is coming up wouldn't it be NOT random?

I'm not making sense now am I?
