Bende menjengkelkan masa naik public transport

macam pernah dengar kan tajuk neh? Aku actually fan Obefiend dan nie macam spinoff, cuma dalam perspektif aku. so nie mmg ayat aku sendiri, tarak tiru2.

Aku naik public, coz aku takda duit dan gaji aku memang tak cukup untuk nk bayar bulanan kereta termasuk maintanance sekali. Motor tak boleh, pasal aku takdak lesen. kang tak pasal2 kena tahan ngan polis. dah la route aku pergi keje mmg infested ngan polis buat roadblock. nie dia entry aku pasal bende2 yang gile annoying/menjengkelkan bila naik public transport. public tranport tu termasuklah Bas/komuter/LRT/STAR/PUTRA/RapidKL/etc....

1) jenis boombox
Aku cukup biul bile ada orang yang tak reti bahasa/no-sivik-minded pasang lagu mp3 dari henset dia. aku tau la bunyik tuh slow, tapi kalo dah tempat tuh boleh kata hampir takde bunyik(kecuali bunyik enjin bas/tren), so bunyik yang sepatutnya slow tu pon mmg clearly kedengaran walaupon ko play kat back end, aku dok kat front end. nak pulak kalo pasang lagu tamil. lagi la aku naik hangin. tolong la beli earphone tuh, murah je kot. takkan la masa hangpa beli henset mahal hang tuh, takdak earphone free, mesti ada punya. kalo takdak, mintak la. kalo orang kedai tuh takmo bagi, sila jangan beli henset kat tempat tuh.

Exaggerating to the max

2) Teh loud-speaker guy.
Macam satu lagi jenis henset maniac neh, aku naik hangin kalo tetibe je call in, mamat(aku bahasakan org lelaki sebagai mamat, perempuan minah, walaupon kaum dia bukan *meleis) neh jawab dengan bangganya memasang mode loud-speaker. nk menunjukkan iPhone/Blackberry/xperia/{insert phone mahal disini} dia. weh, tolong la wei, ni tempat public, kalo nk jawab call pon, at least kawal la suara tuh, lagi buat2 tatau lak bile org keliling dok pandang slek kat dia. macam haram.(ke mmg anak haram? pakai subang telinga tu?) bukan semua orang nak dengar kau punyer conversation tuh...

macam nie ke kai? haah, lebih kurang macam nie.

3) geng kedai kopi
Selalunya kat kedai kopi/or kopitiam kita tenogk orang yang dok borak pasal artis sana, politik sini, masalah dunia etc... nie dalam public transport 3-4 orang dok borak sakan ngan suara kuat. topik selalunya aku susah nk paham pasal only two language that I know, Bahasa Malaysia and english. kumpulan kecil neh memang akan wujud walaupon dimana, gelak ramai2 tu lagi la aku hangin. lol, nk borak turun je la pastu gi ke kopitiam terdekat. boleh wifi free lagik. sial....

tempat ni dipanggil kopitiam, jadi, encik2, silelah berborak di tempat sebegini.

4) Bangga-bag
macam douchebag, tapi nie jenis yang tak reti2 nak turunkan bag dia. backpack besar, pastu bole lak sedap2 je gi block tengah2 tuh. buat2 tak sedar bile orang dok "sekius me" "ekskus me" "beli laluan" kat dia.... macam haram. bangga-bag nie jenis yg memang bangga ngan bag besar dia. aku pon ada pakai backpack gak, tapi takde la sampai aku nk angkut bende 5kg tu masa the whole 1 hour trip commuting aku.... lol.
nasib baik aku tak pernah tgk org malaysia buat camnie...

notes:
*meleis = abg obe punyer singkatan utk malays yg melampau. baca lagi here

a bit of me

I've always asked by friends and family alike, "How do you know all about computer?"

And I always stunned. How the hell am I going to answer this? Its not like I know everything. looking back, my knowledge is somewhat shallow and not as deep as some might think I do.

The first computer I've touched is an old mac, at my dad's workplace. I think I was somewhere in primary school. I don't quite sure what the name of the game, but it is a DOS game. And at that time, what in my mind is not the computer but the game.

an old mac

I am a heavy gamer and I wear glasses because I of that (Although my hobby reading at midnight time also to blame). My first PC is a system with a superfast Celeron 366Mhz with staggering 64MB ram and a huge 3.2GB of HDD space! The only thing inside my HDD back then was game alone. And I've become pretty much computer geek because my PC keeps on crashing and its my job to keep that PC alive so my dad don't know how many time we (me and my bro) break it down.

sim city 2000 is one of my fav game that time

The amount of time i spend on computers is irrelevant to my knowledge. As far as i can remember, i always loved gadgets and stuff. Seeing someone repairs something (or breaks up things) excites me. Even a simple fix to our faucet by my dad, or motor repairs by my uncles, really makes my inside ticks.

Gadgets galore, but not a single cell of brain detected.


Overtime, my knowledge accumulated, and in weird ways too. Just because i do wears specs, people just lump me into 'Nerd' group and expecting me to be able to hack UN,NASA, and ISRAEL with my hands tied and blindfolded. It is not true, I can't hack a single thing. Even my own laptop, in an even of I had forgotten my password. (thank god I never forget them). Me being sort of adventurous, tried. One after another PCs, Laptops, Servers I've repaired, and recovered from Virus, worms, bad format, missing boot record, excidental 'format' etc...

So, is that answer your question?

Kai's K50AB-SX021L review

After 2 month of heavy usage, Now its time for me to write up my own review of this laptop.

Pictures
+ will be updated later

Design and Aesthetics
The outer design of the casing is quite pleasing. With different angle, the color can be black or dark-brown. Closer look will reveal dots n short horizontal line, with also, in different angle, will change its color either black or gray. It makes the K50AB looks more expensive. But the cons here is the casing is really prone to fingerprint and other smudges.

Keyboard
The Keyboard with numpad is a big plus for people that worked with a lot of number. With the key adequately spaced, my medium sized hand(compared with a dozen of my friends hand) feels really comfortable. In this model, Asus have opted for fn + key for any other functions. More than half of the fn + key need driver installed to be functional, and this really irritate me, because I like my windows to be ran in minimal process as possible. Abandoning these software makes 10 key nonfunctional. The plus point is, the key is really responsive, I have no problem in typing my long assignments.

Touchpad
The touchpad is quite weird. It integrates with the casing, and it is not as responsive as other touchpad I've touch so far. Most of the time, I rather be using a provided USB mouse. The touchpad uses multitouch technology, with that, 2 finger operation will make it scroll, 3 finger tap will open up context menu(the right-click in our mouse). Sometimes, it doesnt work.

Screen
The 15.6" screen is a welcomed and the main reason why I choose K50AB over the lighter and longer lasting brother K40AB. The viewing angle is average. With minimum brightness settings, you have to be viewing the right angle to get to see full screen without the color to be washed away. The brightness however, is great. I have no problem watching DVD in bright sunlight.

Chrome

I have heard of Google chrome for quite some time now. and also, hearing is not the same as seeing for himself, so i decided to use Chrome.

As a heavy user of internet, i do a lot of things. Be it social networking, participating in discussion forums, flash games, reading blogs, etc... i do use a web browser to the extend i never even bother to close them. they are either closed/restarted when i shut down my laptop(on rare occasion, i usually hibernate), or when there are updates or only when i have installed new add-ons.

Lately on rare occasion, firefox have an issue of 'hang' for 1-2 seconds, it is registered as not responding. and then it went back to normal. Although some would say "hey, it is only for 1-2 seconds" or "At least it is not crashed like IE" but it is rather annoying.

Enter Google Chrome. It is simple, but tad too simple. I always customize every aspect of my softwares. and I aspect my Chrome can be tailored to me also. But the only thing I notice so far is theme. What? just theme? Ok, dont fret, maybe there are hidden settings elsewhere. But i dont see the hidden setting. coz it is hidden. duh.

2 days worth of work in chrome, so the conclusion?

Switch back to Firefox!

Another Test.


You are The Hierophant


Divine Wisdom. Manifestation. Explanation. Teaching.


All things relating to education, patience, help from superiors.The Hierophant is often considered to be a Guardian Angel.


The Hierophant's purpose is to bring the spiritual down to Earth. Where the High Priestess between her two pillars deals with realms beyond this Earth, the Hierophant (or High Priest) deals with worldly problems. He is well suited to do this because he strives to create harmony and peace in the midst of a crisis. The Hierophant's only problem is that he can be stubborn and hidebound. At his best, he is wise and soothing, at his worst, he is an unbending traditionalist.

Mac OSX on my BenQ S41

Inspired by some of the forumers success on installing OSX into his BenQ-S41, being the same model, I'm also into trying this. These are the links that I've followed. Throughout this process, Ive got another PC with all the guides I got below and an active Internet connection in case of something goes wrong.

http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.5.2/Portables#BenQ
http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Installation_Guides/Kalyway_DualBoot_10.5.2
http://coolblog.profit42.com/2007/07/03/updated-osx-10410-dual-boot-guide/
http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=81036&st=500
http://www.andrewchapman.net/home-mainmenu-71/1-latest/73-hackintosh.html

Please be aware that I'm just a student who are trying to test the system. After the success of this, I'm also be sure to delete all traces of mac and will destroy my burned disk as well. Please don't ask me where i got the disk and where i downloaded it from. Its not ethical and I only done this to test it. after all, I am going to buy a mac in few years time. And also, i'm not in the mood of making any screenshots. Please don't ask. Read the guides instead.

This is the specification of my BenQ Joybook S41-409
- Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 (1.8GHz Dual Core, 800MHz, FSB 2MB L2)
- 2 GB DDR2 667MHz
- 120GB SATA HDD
- 14.1" 1280x800 nVidia 8600GS 256MB GDDR3
- Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN
- Marvell Yukon 88E8055 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

In Vista, my score is 4.3
- proc: 4.9
- ram: 4.9
- graphics: 5.9
- gaming: 5.5
- HDD: 4.3

1. Formatting.
At fist, I've resized my jampacked HDD. After few DVD backup of my data, ( 9 pieces ) I've loaded my S41 with an Acronis Boot Disk. This is to resize my HDD partition and make some room for OSX installation. Notice that I do this without ever need to destroy any of my existing data.

the structure of my HDD: 3 partitions.
c: [45GB-NTFS] vista partition
d: [15GB-FAT32] mac partition --set it to active partition.
e: [56.78GB-NTFS] Data partition. i kept all my data into this partition in case my vista does become corrupt, which is not possible unless i do something really stupid.

2. Burning and making boot disk.
I think this should be the first step. But heck, I'm using the "Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd.iso" and after all the sweat and tears of downloading 3.67GB I've burned it using Alcohol 120%. You can use any burning software instead.

Next, using Acronis Disk Director, I've made a Boot disk using a CD. This is to make the step no 1 above a success. Again don't ask me how I do the first step. Do your google search.

3. Booting up and selecting.
I've changed my boot sequence to DVD and after inserting the Mac disk, I've been welcomed with a beautiful wallpaper. Before that, I've make sure to boot with F8 and -v command.

By selecting English as my language, I've open up the disk utilities. I've prepared the Mac partition to use the 'Mac OS Extended Journaled' as my partition. Exit and I'm done with the disk utilities.




Now time for some customisation of the installation. The + is what I've added, and the - is what I've removed. Note that I do this on my own risk.


-Additional Fonts
-Language Translations
+Kernel_vanilla_92 (i've also unchecked the default)
+NVinject-256


After that click ok and the disk check will make sure that the disk is ok and consistent. After that the installer begins installation. Time left: 24 minutes. Pretty good. Vista takes a whole lot more time.



4. Repairing and booting.

After the installation is completed, I've restarted my Laptop. Something is not right, it won't boot up. The error saids HFS+ Error.
I've re-inserted my Acronis Disk. this is to make my vista active again. This step is to do a dual-booting and with hoping that it will cure this, I make my vista partition active again. Then, off I go rebooting. It works. Inside vista, I've copied chain0. and then with few command in cmd.

bcdedit /copy {current} /d “Mac OS X” (just leave the {current} there and don’t change it)
bcdedit /enum active
bcdedit /set [ID] PATH \chain0 (replace [ID] with you identifier: http://janschneiders.googlepages.com/idosx.gif)


for the sake of my ass, i just do what the above said, and began booting up. it works and I've been welcomed by a really beautiful welcome screen. With lots of welcome in different language. Then, I hav to do some sort of customizing.

5. Testing and Playing around.
This step is not shown and I think most people don't need me to shown this. A lot of apps loads fast, I don't even need to wait. The animation is really fluid, pressing F9 key brings up expose, and blah blah blah...... you get the point. Even now I'm still playing around with my Mac Joybook. Lol.

Leave me a comment if this little diary of mine is used or if you want to add this to somewhere.
