My first rainbow for 2008

Saw my first rainbow for 2008.

Not very beautiful. Can’t see clearly as it is a bit faded already. And it’s not even a complete arch.
But still, it’s a rainbow.

張惠妹 – 解脱

Found this song in my blog draft. Wanted to post this song back in Oct when I thought everything is over between us. But I didn’t. We hanged on to each other. Things did get better, only to fall apart again few months later. And here we are now, back to where it begins.

I met her for dinner today. We had a good talk about what happen. For her, it was sort of a closure.
For me, I don’t know. Part of me still want us to be back together, yet I have to constantly remind myself to keep a distance. There is just too much differences between us. So much that it will only hurt us more if we are together.

I used to think that love will help solve all the issues. But I discovered later that sometimes love just aint enough. Perhaps I was just being naive.

We are still friends. Perhaps it would be a better choice for both of us. I don’t know.

我不应该还不放手

張惠妹 – 解脱

爱是不夜城
回忆像星辰
热泪越沸腾
我越感觉有点冷

变了心的人
越想越伤人
枯坐到清晨
阳光替房间开了灯

想 若结局一样
又何苦再想
伤 若让人成长
我为什么怕分手的伤

解脱是肯承认这是个错
我不应该还不放手
你有自由走我有自由好好过

解脱是懂擦干泪看以后
找个新方向往前走
这世界辽阔
我总会实现一个梦

想 像结局一样
又何苦再想
伤 若让人成长
我为什么怕分手的伤

心里有一种渴望勇敢的念头
不要爱我的人再担心我

解脱是肯承认这是个错
我不应该还不放手
你有自由走我有自由好好过

解脱是懂擦干泪看以后
找个新方向往前走
这世界辽阔
我总会实现一个梦

2008 Resolution item number 1

2008 Resolution item number 1: Exercise more

Sometimes I feel that I’m working in the same office as Dilbert

We have a crappy software in our company that keep hitting the same error. But since the software is only used internally and does not affect customers, the priority to fix it is lowest. Still in queue I guess, except we don’t know when it will ever be fixed.

Whenever we hit that error, we will need to email to the person in charge to inform him and get him to reset the server. Usually we email him the error message too. But it’s always the same error message. So after hitting that error countless times this week, I decided to just keep the email short and sweet.

Hi, same error occurred again. Pls rectify. Thx.

I thought it’s quite straight forward. Since this is the only type of error that the program will encounter. On top of that, I’m replying on the same email that is talking about this issue. So one look and you should know that it is THAT error. But no lor, the person in charge replied saying

Please copy and paste the error message.

Hello, same error means same error message leh.

Now you know why I keep doing the “face on table” thingy in my office.

Reading Steve Job’s keynote

Well, since it’s impossible to get live video of the keynote by Steve Jobs, I turn to reading the keynote from the blogs. There are several live blog this time round like Macrumors, Engadget, Gizmondo and Mac Observer.

This is how I read the keynote.


(Took me awhile to upload this picture. Think a lot of people are blogging about the keynote)

My iMac to read the 4 websites and laptop to discuss the items on ping.sg shoutbox with the rest of the guys.

Twitter went down the moment Steve took the stage. Engadget and gizmondo are rather laggy and went down several times. Mac Observer is slow in updating. The best live blogging site this year is macrumors. Follow by ping.sg shoutbox. Haha.

So the Macbook Air rumor is true. Almost everything is the same as the rumor.
But the most crappy thing is, US is selling at US$1799 while Singapore is selling at SG$2988.
WAH CIAO! Which exchange rates you all using? I thought USD to SGD exchange rate has drop a lot already?

Overall, Macbook Air looks impressive. But too expensive. Eee PC can live another day.

Something is indeed in the air.
OK, I should log off and go to bed. Still need to work tomorrow. Damn… why can’t Steve Jobs choose a better timing for his keynotes?
