CS3214 Workshop
Been so busy for me for the past few weeks, need to enjoy my last bit of holiday before my school starts. Anyway, my school has not yet officially started, it will start on 16th August 2007. But currently I am attending CS3214 Workshop and it happens everyday from 1st August 2007 to the day my school starts from 10am right up to 5pm. Unofficially, my school has started for me.

CS3214 is like a Final Year Project (FYP) in polytechnic by it is just a module on its own and it is worth 8 module credits and I think it is much more tougher than FYP. And the “best part” is that we have to code in Java. I have no idea why schools in Singapore is so pro Java, seriously Java sucks, it is so fucking resource consuming. And in order to code it, I need a computer with at least 1GB of RAM if not I will take like forever to compile the final codes. And the laptop I bought last year just barely meet the requirements.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Caught Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix 2 weeks ago at GV VivoCity, it was quite bad and rather draggy/boring and it lasted about 150 minutes. I got a feeling the subsequent 2 movies will not be that good too.

Caught Flashpoint which stars one of my favorite actor, Donnie Yen (甄子丹). The show was good, there were fight scenes almost throughout the whole movie which lasted about 90 minutes and those fight scenes were very well calligraph by Donnie Yen himself.

Those who love SPL: Sha Po Lang and Dragon Tiger Gate, will love this.

Portable HDD
Finally gotten myself a DIY portable harddisk drive, it is a 160GB Hitachi 5400RPM 2.5″ HDD with Cutie DX casing. It cost S$208. I am going to use it to backup my CS3214 codes in case my notebook cannot take the load that Java gives it and decided to give up on me. I can’t afford any mistakes here as my grades are at stake.
