Blogger matchmaker

Suanie is desperate.
So is LcF.

This is my second time attend the gathering without girlfriend… But, this time many of my friends found their partner already…

Since this is the case, why not either one of them sort out a date and get laid?

If any of them shy, I can be the matchmaker :)

Rumors yesterday, reality today

It was only rumors of price hike of petrol and diesel. Well … today it’s a reality :(

Petrol price went up 10 cents per litre
Diesel price went up 20 cents per litre
LPG price went up 5 cents per Kg

I think I better buy a bicycle now. Saves on fuel and I can exercise more!

But then again, I have to spend more on food, drinks, towels and deodorant :P

“Pentagon Hacker” fights extradition

Here’s a snippet from SecurityFocus.

A Briton accused of hacking into numerous Pentagon and NASA computers began his fight against extradition today. Gary McKinnon (AKA Solo), 39, of Wood Green, north London, allegedly hacked into 97 military and NASA computers over a 12 month period from February 2001 until March 2002, causing an estimated £370,000 in damages.

McKinnon allegedly exploited poorly-secured Windows systems to attack networks run by NASA, the Pentagon and 12 other military installations scattered over 14 states. The unemployed sysadmin was arrested in March 2002

I would love to see an itemised list of “£370,000 in damages”.

What’s in store for your broadband?

Video Conferencing
Video conferencing is not something new on the Internet but I would to see it take step into converging mobile phone technology and the Internet.

3G is picking up fast and so is wireless technology. One fine day, we will be able to perform video conferencing with a 3G phone directly from our computer. I’m sure works are in progress to make this a reality.

For now you can just sample GPRS 3G Skype.

Now think of what happens when WiFi or WiMax coverage extends and all mobile phones start to have Internet connectivity or somewhat. Broadband phones are also the hype these days. You can also get Skype phones which hooks up to your Internet connection and talk for free to other Skype users.

No video conferencing features on Skype? No problem. There is a third party plugin which supports video conferencing from Dialcom Networks

Chances are high we would be using “Internet mobile phones” instead of “mobile phones” in the near future.

What is your favorite condiment?

I know a lot of people who can’t eat without their favorite condiments .. be it soya sauce, tomato sauce, pepper, fish sauce, chilli sauce, mustard, etc.

Soya sauce used to accompany all of my meals when I was young. That was until my mom made me drink the whole bottle of soya sauce. (I only finished half)

I guess a lesson well learnt. I hardly touch condiments nowadays.

Good food should be eaten without any condiments, unless they come with the meal.

Using condiments to enhance/spoil their taste is an act frowned upon by most chefs and cooks. It’s disrespecting their skills.

If you run across food that is tasteless and needs lots of condiments to enhance, forcing you to cook it the second time, it’s bad food and should be avoided forever.

Get a Robosapien

Robosapien is the first robot based on the science of applied biomorphic robotics.

Designed by a scientist, Robosapien is ready to go right out of the box. He comes to life at a touch of the ergonomically designed remote controller! Command him to perform one of his pre-programmed functions or program your own sequence of functions.

The only limitation is your own imagination.

  • Fluid motions and gestures: fast dynamic 2-speed walking and turning; full-function arms with two types of grippers.
  • 67 pre-programmed functions: pick-up, throw, kick, dance, kung-fu, fart, belch, rap and more; 3 demonstration modes.
  • Fully programmable by remote control: Up to 84 program steps with 4 program modes for advanced operations; programmable “reflexes” to sound and touch stimuli.
  • Fluent international “caveman” speech.
  • Extended battery life.

This is much better than getting a dumb Aibo. Kinda lets you play god ;)
