Dreamhost After A Week

Dreamhost After A Week
· ·

So far I am very satisfied with Dreamhost customer support. Filed in 3 support tickets within the week and fastest reply I got back was like within 15 minutes, slowest was within 24 hours (to me it is fast).

Site was down this evening, it took them 45 minutes to detect it and get it back up which to me is also considered fast.

First Day Of Semester 2 06/07

First Day Of Semester 2 06/07
· ·

After a little more than a month worth of holidays, semester 2 of academic year 2006/2007 finally started today. Must work extra hard this semester, hopefully can pull up my crappy GPA of 3.18 to maybe about 3.2 or 3.3. Bit by bit, before I graduate hopefully my GPA can be above 3.5. All of my modules this semester are mostly theory based, unlike last semester where I spent so much time on CS11o2 and I only get B+. That sucks.

Caught One Last Dance, 茶舞 at GV Marina and that show sucks. It is too artistic for a normal movie goer. That was the first movie I watched in 2007 and it sucks.

My Dream PC In 2008 Part II

My Dream PC In 2008 Part II
· ·

Posted my dream PC specifications a while back in August 2006, and some of the specs seems a little bit unrealistic.

Have been doing some research recently. The Intel Core 2 Quad which will goes into main stream sometime this years is called Kentsfield (Core 2 Quad). According to Wikipedia, the 2 main models are Q6600 (2.4GHz) and Q6400 (2.13GHz). Kentsfield is not really a true quad core processor, it is just basically two separate Conroe (Core 2 Duo) cores in one socket, and there will be a bottleneck in terms of bandwidth.

DMMT Gathering

DMMT Gathering

Had a DMMT gathering yesterday at Marina’s Sakae Sushi organized by Charlene, people turn up includes Charlene, Stacey, Zhi Wei, Zhi Ming, Terry, Hafiz, Ron, Lynn, Lester Goh, Xiu Hui, Laily, Suqin, Li Xiang and I. It was rather coincidence as we saw Zhi Fan and his girlfriend too. This is the 2nd time I have been eating Sakae Sushi within this week. After dinner, it was quite hard to find a place to chill out as everywhere is so crowded due to it is a Friday night. So we end up at Suntec’s Starbucks which closes at 1am.

The first time was also a DMMT gathering at Wheelock’s Sakae Sushi organized by Hui Juan, people turn up includes Hui Juan, Jie Lin, Xiu Yu, Elaine, Wei Quan, Choon Sing, Alvin and I.
