Pure time waster
If you got spare time, try this Endless Zombie Rampage game.

If you still have more time to waste, go ahead and waste it on Desktop Tower Defense

Its hard to find anymore spare time after this 2 games. Trust me.

Photoshopped
Not sure if you notice, but the picture of the crossroad in this post was actually photoshopped by me. This picture is actually from the movie castaway. Its the ending where Tom Hanks was standing at a cross road junction thinking where to go next. The original picture looked like this.

Would you notice that I photoshopped the picture if I didn’t tell you?

SPUG is back
The Singapore Palm User Group website is finally back online after being down for nearly 7 month. Missed the forum so much. We had so much fun and laughter in the past.

Things aren’t really the same now. I wonder if SPUG will ever be as strong as it used to be.

Beware of your Hitchoo cards
After the Geek Terminal launch party, I’ve learnt that I have to keep my Hitchoo card in a secure place. What happen was, Uzyn snatched it away from me and took one of the Hitchoo card. I have totally no idea who he gave the Hitchoo card to. I have no problem if he gave to some of the pretty gals around. But really don’t know Uzyn’s taste lor. Wait she give a old lady how?

Anyway, I managed to get back the Hitchoo cards shortly after beating him repeatly on his arms. Like the way he hit me before his Village Talk.

More about Hitchoo
I got an email from Yinghan because I mentioned about Hitchoo cards in my blog. I’m still trying to brainstorm all the areas where Hitchoo can improve on. It’s a very new startup and there are lots and lots of rooms for improvements. It’s nice to see many positive feedbacks on Kevin’s blog.

Don’t think I can release the details from the email. But all I can say is, remember not to give out all your 8 Hitchoo cards. Keep at least one. You’ll find out why soon. 🙂

EastCoastLife is the last person you want to seek help from
If you ever get your dick stuck on your zipper, the LAST person you want to seek help from is EastCoastLife (AKA Chio Chio De Aunty). What happened was one of her employee got his dick stuck on the zipper and someone got her to help unstuck the situation.

She twitter for help, shouted in ping.sg shoutbox and blog about the whole incident when its done.

The past was tomorrowed, hardwarezoned, sammyboyed and appearing at many other forums. It even went up Shin Min Daily News on 30th May, front page!

Seriously, if my dick ever got stuck on the zipper, please please please don’t get EastCoastLife to help me.

I’m going to NUS later to attend a BlogIn event by tenCube. Exactly… what is a BlogIn? I know BlogOut, but BlogIn? Hhhhmmm….

Anyway, I heard that tenCube has a system than can remotely backup your handphone contacts and stuff. And even delete everything in case your handphone got stolen. Interesting. Will learn more about it later.

Lets home I don’t lose my way in NUS.

I just got my Hitchoo cards today.

Hitchoo has a very interesting concept. You give the Hitchoo card to someone you met, he/she checks your profile on hitchoo and contact you. Its alot better than giving out namecards or moocards. Especially when you just met the gal.

Oh ya… the card is made using good quality material. Not those cheapo cards. I’m sure the person receiving the card would be impressed by it.

I quite like the concept behind hitchoo. Thanks to Kevin for recommending this website. Too bad I didn’t get to meet Yinghan at blogout.

Actually, I have a better idea on how to use this Hitchoo card too. You exchange your card with one of your friend. So you pass your friend’s hitchoo card to someone you think your friend might be interested in and your friend do the same for your card. Take it as a blind date or something.

Anyone want to exchange Hitchoo card? And don’t sabo me go give it to a old lady hor!

Savage Garden – Crash and Burn

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
Its hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you cant take anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump Ill break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You’re not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You’re caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel like you can’t face the day

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I’ll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You’re not alone

And there has always been heartache and pain
And when its over you’ll breathe again
You’ll breath again

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please
To tame your wild wild heart

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I’ll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You’re not alone

I always wonder how an office in the past operates without a computer. I came to the working world when computer can be found in almost every office. In fact, I spend almost my time at office in front of a computer. I cannot imagine how to get things done in an office without a computer. Well, ok, perhaps it’s because I’m in the IT line. But even if you are in other industries, you would most likely be facing a computer most of the time in office. Can you imagine a day in office without computer?

We spend so much time in front of the computer each day, using it to help us to do our work more efficiently. Yet many people don’t bother to learn more about computers. I’m not talking about those advance stuff like networking or programming. I’m talking about basic computer knowledge. Like how to use Microsoft Office or basic computer operation.

My ex-director is well known for asking for help when comes to preparing power point slide and excel spreadsheet for presentations. I’ve lost count of the number of times he asked into his office to teach him simple stuff like how to attached a word document into an power point slide to how to plot a graph. I still remember once he asked me something about excel.

“What does the ‘=$A$1’ means in excel formula? Why got $ sign?”

I always tried my best to explain to him without making him feel like he is a fool. But when the questions are these simple, it’s rather hard. And this guy is actually earning 3 or 4 times more salary than me! I’m glad that he was transferred to another department and I don’t need to go teach him the basic office fundamentals.

But then, this is not a unique case. There are really tons of people who have no basic computer skills. As the part time LAN admin in the office, I get to encounter many of such people.

Recently, one of my colleagues emailed me for help saying her Windows is behaving strangely and been rather laggy. So I went over to check what went wrong. After some checking, I suspect it was cause by one of the in-house software that she is using. So I asked her how she installed that program.

Her reply shocked me. “I didn’t install it. I ask someone to help me install one. I don’t know how to install lah. Every time ask people help me install this and that, then I use lor.”

Mind you, we are working in a IT department. And you don’t know how to install a program by yourself? I’m actually alright if you are working in other industries like accounting or business or even engineering. But this is the IT industries leh.

For goodness sake, go to the nearest community club, check out their latest computer fundamental course and learn some basic computer skills. You are working in the IT line.
