Java Sucks
Been doing hardcore EJB3.0 because of my CS3214 and boy I have never been more pissed off with Java than this. As usual, I just hate it when Java threw an exception, because whenever I do a printStackTrace(), it will fucking give me error lines for files that is not even in my project, those are files belonging to Java itself. It is useless for an average end user point of view.

When there is an exception in your JSP (not compiling error), it will throw you an error line of the compiled version instead of the error line in your JSP, and they expect me to find that error line.

An Indian discovered that nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the computer which can be named as “CON”. This is something pretty cool…and unbelievable… At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn’t answer why this happened!
TRY IT NOW ,IT WILL NOT CREATE ” CON ” FOLDER

MAGIC #2
For those of you using Windows, do the following:
1) Open an empty notepad file
2) Type “Bush hid the facts” (without the quotes)
3) Save it as whatever you want..
4) Close it, and re-open it.

I am not that interested in the Extreme version because I do not overclock my computer and no point paying more for a unlocked clock multiplier when I am not going to use it. I am hoping Intel will have 3000 MHz for the normal edition as well or even more as I am targeting at least 3GHz and above.

And yes, Yorkfield will support DDR3.

Nokia E51 was announced yesterday, somehow I was expecting a E series phone being announced after Go Play as there were many rumors floating around Mobile Review forum.

I think the E51 reminds me of a candy bar version of E65 which is a slider phone. The only think I dislike the E51 is the 2MP camera, I mean even though camera is not the main feature of this phone, they should at least put in a 3.2MP camera instead.

Parkour is an activity of French origin, the aim of which is to move from point A to point B as efficiently and quickly as possible, using principally the abilities of the human body.

Just watch finished District 13, it is a French action film which features Parkour and starring David Belle, the co-founder of Parkour. The movie is not bad but the movie is in French and the worst part is that the English dub sucks.

New Power Supply

My Pentium 4 3.2GHz desktop will be reaching 4 years old in 2 months time. 2 days ago, my power supply unit (PSU) decided to give up on me by automatically cutting off the power to my computer and hence my computer is prone to shutting down anytime.

2 days ago, when I woke up, I was like how come it is so quiet (my computer is noisy due to the PSU also) and then I realize my computer was off. As I am going to school, I did not on it till I came home at night. When I came home at night, I on it, everything seems to be normal. But about 2am after finishing talking to Li Xiang on the phone, I witness my computer turning off by itself. I was like WTF? I immediately try turning back on, but it will automatically off after passing BIOS (I tried it like 5 times). I decided to let it rest and then after 15 minutes, I turn it back on again and it works as per normal. I check whether the bottom of my PSU’s fan is spinning and to my horror, it is not spinning. I took a sharp object and twirl the PSU’s fan to get its engine started, it spinned by itself eventually after a few twirls. I went to sleep after that.

Ratatouille
It has been a month since I caught a movie at the cinema due to our busy schedule, but finally found some time last Friday to catch a midnight show, Ratatouille, at GV VivoCity.

The show was not bad bad but a little too draggy, it is about 2 hours longs but nevertheless Pixar animation is always outstanding, I am really amazed by how they did the water effects. Imagine the algorithm and mathematical calculation behind it! That was what is going through my mind when I am watching it. LOL
