Slept till 1.30pm today first time in don’t know how many months. Went to Sim Lim Square. My mom bought a 5m USB cable for her office use. I on the other hand bought a new Western Digital 120GB(ATA100) HDD for $180 and a HDD mobile rack for $19. Shall be fixing it when I am free.
Came home, as usual, indulge myself with FYP, FYP, nothing else but FYP. Mom cook western cuisine for dinner. Grilled Fish with baked potatoes. The grilled fish tastes very good. My mom can really marinate food, and above all no MSG is used in the process. =D
Had my 7th driving lesson today, not too bad now, will not be that nervous when going on the road. After my driving went to Great World City to watch UnderWorld. 2nd movie I watched alone.
The movie last slightly more then 2 hours. Throughout the whole movie, the time is forever in the night because of vampires and werewolves. The movie is about a war between vampires and werewolves. Practically the whole movie is action packed. The special effect is very very good and the storyline is not that bad. I really love this movie and will give 2 thumbs up. Wonder why 8days only give this movie 2.5 stars.
Changed some logic of my GAME assignment today. Changed the way they detect collision from the grid method to the bounding volume method. At first I used the bounding volume method, but it lags alot because I did something wrongly.
Came home, took a nap as I need some rest. I have been rushing FYP, everyday spent more than 4 hours in front of the computer formatting HTML. My eyes really need a good rest after everything. Overworked, under paid.
Damm it, Half-Life 2 is delayed once again till April 2004 because of the recent leakage of the source code.
» A third of the source code was stolen. It’s serious because it forces us to delay the launch of the game by at least four months, that is to April 2004. Just the time to rewrite parts of the game. » This is the second time the game’s release has been postponed. » Last month, VU games postponed the release of “Half-Life II” from September 30 to “an unspecified holiday release”.
Finally my pacman can move using timer, but still got lots of bugs. No mood to really go and think of the logic/solve the bugs. Think shall do my pacman after I have finished my FYP. I am really worried for my FYP, so many things, so little time.
After lunch with my good friends, I think it was me who jokingly suggest watching Infernal Affairs 2, but Goh and Ron very on. LOL.
Just in case you do not know what is going on in the gaming scenes these few days. The most anticipated game of the year, Half-Life 2, source code is leaked. Yes, thats right the source code alone without any other assets. This is worst then having the game beta leaked. Imagine 5 years of hardwork gone down the drain.
The code is in a 32MB rar file, it will extract to 7000+ files worth 160MB. The code is in c++ and it contains the code to cs, hl, hl2 and tf2. No doubt some sites say the code is fake, but rest assured that more people said that the code is real.
Been very busy for the past few days and that I am too tired to update my blogs. Basically these 2 days is work, work and more work.
Went for my 5th driving lesson early in the morning yesterday. Was so sleepy and yet when it comes to driving I am so awake, but after the driving lesson, I am back to my sleepy mode again. Able to stop and move off from slope without any difficulty, but when it comes to main road, still cannot get the changing down of gears right. Think shall need more practice on that.
