ANY key?

A few days ago, Microsoft revealed a new website called Where’s the ‘Any’ Key?. IT guys post funny/fail tech support stories. I think that made my week.. Aside from the flat snow-line and discolored rocks, this picture is crazy realistic right? The wind was so strong on Thursday. This sign was knocked over. Those two facts are unrelated. Or are they? I was reading this CNN article titled Can world’s largest laser zap Earth’s energy woes? The story was exciting, but it was nothing compared to the comments.. I seriously never knew CNN community could be so insightful. ØŸ Or relevant. ØŸ At callbacks on Thursday (NHS), they switched me so that I’m running for parliamentarian. Apparently, parliamentarians manage the website and newsletter. (What does that have to do with parliament..?) I guess everyone thinks they’re good with computers, so… more →


Do you know Jason Chen? Probably not. Not unless you’ve been on Gizmodo sometime this afternoon. (April 26) He’s the one that published the controversial article about the lost next-generation iPhone. And just last Friday, police raided his house (presumably in search of other lost Apple prototypes). You can read more about it here. There’s been a lot of bad air around Apple lately with the new developer policies and such. But this is ridiculous. (Almost as funny as Stephen Hawking and the alients) This sort of stuff is happening right up in San Francisco. WTF man. Just how messed up is our legal system? Anyways, I have been playing with CG graphics because it is just too awesome. Doesn’t that look awesome? (Almost as awesome as women pissing on walmart clothes (SFW)) Soo.. I am creating a video converter… more →


The contest is over! Thanks Allan, for trying.. because they weren’t really that hard. I’ll get you something for your effort. Here’s the solutions: 1. otoborsirewsnaeht Flip the order of the letters, you get "theanswerisroboto". 2. botxfsjtuxjuufs Change each letter to the letter that comes before it alphabetically. (So B changes to A and F changes to E) You get "answeristwitter". 3. %54%68%65%20%70%61%73%73%77%6F%72%64%20%69%73%20%64%61%6E%67%6F There’s many ways of decoding this. Basically, this is hexadecimal ASCII. Try pasting it in your URL Bar: "Dango" highlighted everywhere.. The actual translation is "the answer is dango". 4. This one is encoded in BASE64. (according to the hint i gave you) So, first thing to do, is to google "Base 64 decoder". I’m gonna use this one ( It decodes into a binary file, but without the MIME type, it’s useless. Right? So, to find… more →


So, on thursday, I went to ASI Techexpo 2010, and it was like nerd-heaven. All the new crap that you hear about on Digg and Engadget. Yes, well I’m not gonna go into that. Surprisingly, it wasn’t completely devoid of girls. Though, most of them were there as attractions for guests. They were displaying this (instantly recognizable) case (used in this video). I didn’t get a real good picture of it because the room was dark It seemed like the bare minimum was i7 and triple-screens and ATI 5970… I also got these stickers that apparently, are in pretty high demand on the Internet. — So you think you’re good with tetris? Try this version: I could only get 2 lines on this.. (source) Look at the label on the box. Hot pockets are sooo good/unhealthy. I’m sad to know… more →

El terremoto

Yay! It’s easter. I went ice skating today and afterwards, went to dinner with small group. And um.. apparently, there was an earthquake. Originally, it was like 6.9. But I guess that number was too provocative so they bumped it up to 7.2. I didn’t feel it. All these earthquakes lately have been scaring people.. I mean come on: source If there were a huge terremoto right here in LA, that would really suck. I mean, we’re the ones who usually get earthquakes. You can feel it coming can’t you? javascript:function ds(){ var newx=Math.floor(Math.random()*20); var newy=Math.floor(Math.random()*20); for (var i=0;i
