What I caught, seems to be going around. Worse still was that 2 days after I fell sick, as I limped back from work my mother tells me WZ is burning up. I didn't even need to touch the little guy to feel the heat from him. My parents shipped him off to the doctor which basically gave him the same drugs as I got... something for the fever something for the running nose.

What's worse was that because I was deemed the source of this problem, I was unable to come into contact with WZ for a few days.

WZ is better now, but he's probably still shaking off the effects of the medication and still having some other weird symptoms like me.. ie. chills, breaking out into a cold sweat, etc. etc.

And now my mother's just caught a fever this morning.

A Flu... Fever, whatever it was it was bad. Bad enough to keep me in bed for 2 whole days, and even now I'm a bit dizzy and I still ain't sure of myself yet. I feel so disjointed typing on the keyboard.

Any sort of problem that makes a person go light on the head it's a BIG problem for programmers, since it's hard to think of algorithms and solutions when your world's spinning and you feel as if your limbs aren't your own and even typing a mere msgbox results in something else.

It's a VERY BIG PROBLEM.. a programmer who doesn't have a straight head is pretty much useless. *sigh*

Some people were asking how to get the web Live Messenger chat box like what I have on the site. And I forgot about the link myself! Luckily A quick Google search revealed the link.


Just go to the page, apply the settings, and then get the HTML to be placed on your blog.

I've been using Tablet PCs since a few years back, and I've gone through 4 of them already. And there was one similarity between all of them, I have not had a built in optical drive ever since I started using Tablet PCs. So I had to rely on external DVD drives, and there was always one little problem with all the drives I had. They had to be powered by an adapter, so I wasn't exactly fully mobile.

But now.. I found the LG GSA-E50L external DVD Multi Writer.


It's your typical USB 8x MultiFormat DVD Burner, with one notable exception. It DOESN'T come with a power adapter. Finally I found a DVD drive which can be fully powered by a FULL POWER USB port (ie it'll most likely not work if you plugged it into an unpowered hub)!! Finally I can use a DVD drive with all my tablets, the U1010, P1610 and of course.. the eeePC! Also the drive has one more little trick...


The drive is Lightscribe capable, I always wanted to try out one of these drives to see how well it works. Basically with special media (which obivously costs more than normal discs) after you burn your files, you flip the disc over and the the laser is used to burn the image onto the disc. Nifty... and is a nice touch when you need to make the disc special. It's definetly better than scriblling on the disc with a CD marker, and it's more convenient than printing and sticking labels.

This is highly recommended if you have a notebook without a built in optical drive, the convinience of not having to need a power adapter to work is immense! But you have to realise that if the USB ports are not full power ones you'll need to rely on the additional USB power cable provided in the box. MOST ports on notebooks are full power ports, but there are exceptional cases.

If there's one holiday that's commercialized more than anything else, it's Valentine's Day. Why the heck do you need a day to be nice to the ones you love?

Gheeeezzz... and check out how much the flower prices bloat during today!
