Autopatcher Project Has Been Cease!

Can't really believe Microsoft has started to act and cease Autopatcher completely. I'm not really convince why MS have to do that. But maybe the Service Pack 3 is coming to sooner (2 weeks) so they decided to take action on the project. However, I disagree MS doing this. Autopatcher is a great product and help a lot of the IT tech to do the job fast especially when it comes to fresh installed PC or laptop. Reduced time using all the bandwidth only for Window Update and of course faster delivery for the customers. I really hope MS lift up the banning on the projects.
Today we received an e-mail from Microsoft, requesting the immediate take-down of the download page, which of course means that AutoPatcher is probably history. As much as we disagree, we can do very little, and although the download page is merely a collection of mirrors, we took the download page down.

We would like to thank you for your support. For the past 4 years, it has been a blast. Unfortunately, it …

Bad Weather

I feel like a dry meat this afternoon. Doesn't feel like want to work in the office and almost fell a sleep while working server on site, because of the nice cool air-conditioner in the room. It was raining all day yesterday and now, we are experiencing another damn hot nice weather the whole day. I almost become a sicko this morning and my head is starting to feel hurt. Luckily it just didn't happen. Arggg...I think I need to make some drinks to cool down my body heat tonight.

MoreFor those of you guys posted about the contest. Contest Blogger decided to throw in a real $100.00 dollar cash contest for winner who want to take revenge on Ashwin blog. You can read more here.

Bringer Silent of Death

Razer just announced a new product gaming mouse yesterday, named Lachesis and it cost $79.90 for pre-order including free poster (limited). The mouse do somewhat a bit like replace Razer DeathAdder design and I really love to get one. But the shipping are too expensive for me to get one. Who the hell anyone would want to pay US$50.00+ (only one product) for a UPS shipping service? I find it stupid after looking at that amount. I wonder where the hell is the Asian Razer store gone to? I remember they offer a free shipping if you buy over US$100.00 there.

Onshore Trip (to Work LOL)

It was my first time going onshore to work on a ship. I have to say not an easy ride for me as I have to take a Severn class lifeboat (likely what it was called) to board the ship for another half an hour. Imagine adding another trip from Kuala Belait to Muara required at least more than one hour. That’s why I took my camera with me. Shhh…..I almost got a sea sick after 10 minute inside there after the weather starting to turn bad and shaken the lifeboat side by side fiercely. I was like, damn, am I going to throw out the food from my stomach? I was totally lucky taking a half an hour ride only because I was told that the ship has sail nearer in order to reduce the time for me to reach there. All else, I might take at more than two hour to reach them. Not to mention I have to check every crew PC in every office too and possibly I might going to stay there for one night. Argg...Well, it ain’t going to happen because my own bed was much better and my PC is in front of me, and I need it.…

Byousoku 5cm per Second Movie

While my friend were still in Singapore and I was doing my part downloading the anime. I was going to take some time checking out my anime lists that I haven't watched yet stored in my hard disk drive. I decided to pick and watched “5 Centimeters Per Second - a chain of short stories about their distance". The anime was releases this year 2007, a feature film by Makoto Shinkai. The anime contains three chapters: Oukashou (桜花抄), Cosmonaut (コスモナウト), and Byousoku 5 Centimeter.A tale of two people, Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari, who were close friends but gradually grow farther and farther apart as time moves on. They become separated because of their families yet continue to exchange contact in the form of letters. Yet as time continues to trudge on, their contact with one another begins to cease. Years pass and the rift between them grow ever larger. However, Takaki remembers the times they shared together, but as life continues to unfold for him, he wonders if he would be gi…

Stress and Stupid

I was indeed very stressing this few days because of money is running dry in my bank account. I have already had a few items going to put up on garage sales soon into my friend shop. Those are my PSP (ver. 2.71), Warcraft III Battle chest editions and other PC games. Not sure if I am going to throw in my PS2 for sale too. Just in case I am telling myself. In order to control my spending starting this month, I decided to post up my daily income, spending, pay off debt and also my upcoming future debt list. I am trying to keep track of myself on what the hell am I spending on so bad and what the fuck is going on in my life getting this shit debts.

Other than stupid things I am going to do on my blog. The most interesting that happen to me in a department store is that I can’t find my god damn size for the new jean. I was thinking about getting two new one on my old totally torn up jean I wear for nearly half a year now. I can’t believe I wasn’t able to find any of my size there. My width…

Richard Dawkins Channel

Another more on Richard Dawkins on YouTube. I watch the Root of Evil 'The God Delusion" video the whole night downloading all of them to understand more about his theory. It was the interesting video explaining and questions about the religious which I don't seen it much from any other channel. Any of you guys should check it out.

Here are the link to direct to his first video:

Atheists & Discrimination

Ok, I am Atheist and I fully respect other religious people who believe in gods. I never tried to discourage any friends of mine or even family to stay out of their believing on gods. However, I came across watching these video in YouTube about some debate over CNN Atheist discrimination on February this year. I don't know what the hell is happening in America nowadays. So I don't know what the Atheists trying to do there and it just started to sound like becoming another what they called "two horns and a tails" or something. Anyway, I find these debate rather interesting especially Richard Dawkins, who wrote the book called "The God Delusion". I never read his book before but i would love to owned one if someone want to send me one for free. ^^

Story of Desmond Chin...

I am a guy who doesn’t like to buy newspaper in my home country instead spending more time on the internet reading IT and gaming news. It just happen today I pay a visit to Bruneistudent.com and came across a strong post about a young adult suffering from a cancer like diseases. His name is Desmond Chin, age of 20, a Seria resident. According the information from ShimWorld, Desmond was diagnosed with leukaemia in April 2005 and suffers from T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, a type of cancer which causes more than normal quantities of white blood cells. Even I don’t even know what kind of disease is that. It doesn’t sound too good for any adult and children. More importantly, the cost of the treatment and surgery were estimate between $100k and $200k. O_O It didn’t say if that is in UK or US dollar, but still that amount is not everyone able to get it easily. Other issue also because Desmond is a Bruneian Permanent Resident, he is unable to obtain financial support from the governm…

HSBC 60 Years in Brunei

HSBC currently is celebrating their 60th anniversary in Brunei. I went for sign up for Visa card this morning while I was working in my contract company. I wasn’t really thinking on applying another card for myself after looking at my saving this year. Well, it’s free anyway and I was pull by friends over to apply it. Just hope they won’t reject my application again. HA! Here’s the free gift I got from them.

Yeah, I ever did apply a visa card back in 2005 for the first time after the promotion started. I needed it because I needed it to purchase my favorite PC games online from Singapore. ^^;;; I think I was totally pissed off at that time after my application was rejected for some stupid reason. Not to mention they didn’t even bother to contact me for explanation what going on with the detail I provided as myself have to go directly to the office for an answer. Lousiest service I ever had in my experience.

Ok, that’s not all. I have to sit there and give them for another half an hour a…
