How to downgrade from Vista to XP

You know Vista is crap when PC World wrote an article on how to downgrade from Vista to XP.

Vista is really unusable. I still remember my short experience with Vista when I was helping my teamlead install something on his new Laptop. Cannot stand it. Actually, I also don’t really like XP. I prefer to use Win2k.

But still…. Why downgrade to XP when you can upgrade to MacOS?

Micro Olympics – Addictive game

Warning: The game that I’m about to talk about is highly addictive. Play at your own risk.

Found another addictive game call Micro Olympics. Play at your own risk. You have been warned.

I’m still stucked at the 5th guy. Can’t make it pass 2500m. Yes, I know I suck at games.

The interesting thing about this game is that after playing it, my facebook display this message.

Think Kongregate signed some deal with Facebook. Of course I’m not going to let anyone know that I wasted so much time playing game on Kongregate.

Flunk my exam

It wasn’t really a surprise to me that I flunk my exam. I was quite confident that I will fail that paper when I walk out of the exam hall. And I was right after all. (Although I really wish I was wrong)

That is supposed to be the last exam paper in my entire whole life. Now it has become my 2nd last exam paper. So I can’t graduate this year. Have to wait another year before I get that piece of paper. I don’t need to retake the entire module. Just need to take the exams. But the stupid thing about this is that the exam is in Nov. I’ll have to wait 1 whole freaking year to retake the exams. What a stupid ruling.

Actually, I’m fine. Just feeling quite sian about the whole thing. I just wanted to get it over and done with. But looks like I can’t. I think I’ve reached a point where I see no use for a degree except to get a better paying job. The things I really wanted to do doesn’t requires a degree. And I’m not learning the skills that I need from this degree course.

And it makes me wonder more…. Why the hack am I trying to get that piece of paper?

Although it’s been said many times, many ways…

Merry Christmas to you.

Hope you enjoy this song. It is one of my favorite Christmas Song. And although many people has sang this song before, I still like this version sang by Nat King Cole.

Simply the best. Enjoy and have a nice holiday. Cheers

Nat King Cole – Christmas Song

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping at your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like eskimos.
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.
They know that Santa’s on his way –
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And ev’rymother’s child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.
and so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times,
Many ways: “Merry Christmas to you”
