Who’s gonna save us?

Many are unable to connect to the Internet this evening. Some appeared to have DNS error during connection. Apparently our beloved ISP is having some DNS problem over at one of their servers. Took them about 3 hours to fix the problem (how efficient!)

To make things worse, it virtually impossible to get their Call Centre at all. Calling them is like planning for your own funeral.

Complaint Department: Take a number!

This is not the first time and I believe it will not be the last. Question now is, what can we do? We’re too dependent on Streamyx now. Since the rest of the provider are not doing that well either, we’re practically screwed! :p

Streamyx Sucks

“So, where are we watching the big match tonight? I wanna see you cry!”

Ok great. Now a man wanna see another grown man crying. Pathetic but fun… for the other guy.

Now many of my friends are asking me where to go tonight to watch the BIG match. The UEFA Champions League final happening in Rome between Manchester United and Barcelona. THE match before the end of football season for this year.

These two are the greatest football clubs in  the world they are champions of their own league. Why would I wanna cry if any of these team wins?

“You’re a Man U fan, I wanna see you cry!”

Oh ok, so I’m a fan of Manchester United and I should cry if Man U were to lose to Barcelona tomorrow morning? But seriously,  why should I?

We are in the finals! Many other clubs can only dream of getting to the final but Man U is already in the final… again!

Look, if we lose, we’re gonna lose with pride. Please don’t be an asshole who tries to prove that you have a bigger asshole than anyone else! :D

Glory Glory Man United!

Finale - EUFA Champions League 2009

Twitter Locked Out?!

My TweetDeck was still working fine this morning at home but as I got into the office. I’m suddenly being locked out!

Was trying to connect via TweetDeck and then TwitterFox, both didn’t work and was returning an error. Then I tried logging-in via Twitter website and that didn’t work too.

Apparently, I’ve been logged out from Twitter due to too many failed attempts! WTF?

After a quick check on Google, I found out that this problem is quite common. Many users got locked out suddenly just like me. I proceed to reset my password and it was working after that… for the browser based Twitter only. Now I can’t login to TwitterFox and TweetDeck with the new password I’ve just resetted. WTFx2!!!

For anyone who got locked out from Twitter just like me. Don’t panic, I will tell you how to regain your Twitter account.

First, go back to your Twitter page via the web browser and try to sign in. When prompt to enter your login details, click the ‘Forgot Password’ link and this will send generate an password reset link to your email account. Click on the reset link, key in your new password and you’re done!

Do bear in mind that you can only sign-in to your web-based Twitter account at the moment. Any attempt to log-in via app-based (TweetDeck, TwitterFox & Twitterific)  twitter will be rejected.

LATEST UPDATE!
I’ve just resetted my password and was able to access my account for a while. After clicking the logout button and trying to log back in, I got locked out again!!! WTFx3!!!!

The conclusion of American Idol season 8 was absolutely mind-blowing! Congratulations to Kris Allen for being the next American Idol however many still believe it should be the other way round. Although Adam Lambert puts on a more promising show of winning the title, at the end, it was America’s decision… or is it?

Review: Night At The Museum 2 – Battle of the Smithsonian (2009)

Night At The Museum 2I got the chance to catch the first sneak peak (in Malaysia) of the movie Night At The Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian and I love it.

If you love the previous Night At The Museum (2006), you will love this sequel too. Battle of the Smithsonian is double the size and double the fun!

The Plot
Security guard Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) revisited his old workplace only to find some of his friends are ‘moving out’ to the Smithsonian Institute. He then had to infiltrate the institution to rescue Jedediah and that’s when the fun begins.

The Cast (Spoiler Alert)
Expect to see most of the old characters back in this movie and some new ones too, especially Amelia Earhart, played by the lovely Amy Adams who was the first lady ever to cross the Atlantic by plane and Kahmunrah, played by Hank Azaria who was the evil brother of Akhmenrah.

Battle of the Smithsonian also features a lot of other CGI characters which are really funny and cute. Expect to see The Thinker, Abe Lincoln, some gigantic octopus and cuddly flying cupids. I love the bogglehead Einsteins the most!

Summary
Overall, the movie is not just but good laugh. I actually learned about some thing on history. Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Amy Adams, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria and the others did a good job bringing the best out of their characters. A movie which I highly recommend to watch.

I’m giving it an overall rating of 8/10.

Evolution of Apple Computers

I was first introduced to an Apple computer (Apple Classic) back in 1994. It was the coolest thing I’ve ever come across after the PC. The colourful Apple logo and the stylist single body design awes me. It was love at first sight.

My first experience with an Apple computer was the Macintosh LCIII, one of the slickest piece of machinery I’ve ever seen (back then of course). I still remember my first tour to LIMKOKWING’s computer lab. Rows and rows of Apple Macintoshes… sweet! It was like being in computer heaven and being greeted happily by those smiley Mac logos.

Smiley Mac

My dad then bought me my first Apple Macintosh, the Powermac PPC. Spent a fortune on it but I it was worth it. I had a fair share of good and bad moments with that machine. With ‘blistering’ speed of 100 MHz processing power, 32MB RAM with 500MB harddisk space. The Powermac PPC was my best companion for the next 3 years.

When I started working, I managed to get my hands on some other Mac machines and many things change after that.

Hey There Khalilah (Parody)

OMG! Goremy.com is bad bad bad. He got all his tunes stuck in my head now. At first it was the Tabbouleh song and now this, a parody from Plain White T’s, Hey There Delilah!

This guy is hilariously in tune!

Lyrics:

Hey there, Khalilah, what’s it like in Baghdad City?
I’m 3,000 miles away but girl tonight you’re looking pretty
Can’t you see?
You’re looking really hot, baby. Literally.

Hey there, Khalilah, I am at my latest booking
But I’m writing you tonight to say how much I miss your cooking
So I sob.
Wipe all my tears up with a mop. There’s no kabob.
Oh, it’s how you cook the meat. How you cook the meat.

Hey there Khalilah, you stay good and cook some coosa
Til I’m back there making money at the Improv in Falluja
Give it time.
I’m bombing really bad this time. No, not that kind.

Hey there, Khalilah, if I must eat one more Twinkie
Well I might just have to lick my arm and then bite off my pinky
What a scene. The only Arab food I see’s
Attached to me

Oh, it’s how you cook the meat. How you cook the meat.

3,000 miles is far away, but I just want kabob today
I’d eat it all up with a knife and fork.
Why am I so far from you? All they have here is bar-b-que
Which would be good except I don’t eat pork.
The ketchup here is really bad, the mustard’s not a deadly gas
This pizza box tastes better, that’s for sure
And it’s cardboard

Hey there, Khalilah, you’re tahini on falafal
No, you’re not sesame paste but girl I just can’t eat without you
So you know. I’ll have kabob when I get home.
And chug rose water like a pro
Cuz I do not like Domino’s
Oh no I don’t.

Another song that stuck in my head…arghh

Here’s another song that is stuck in my head for the past 24 hours. Damn it!

Lyrics:

Tabbouleh
Tabbouleh Tabbouleh
Makes me shake
shake shake my booty
Eat it with lots of falafal
Eat it on top of a camel

Dance.
Cuz it’s the only beat
That’s gonna stick in your head
and stick in your teeth

You gotta push push
Push the tush
When you eat an Arab salad
that is not fettoush

It’s a hearty party
tasting yum yum
Taste that parsley
Shake your bum bum

In the club.
Don’t need a shorty/cutie
All I need to take is
a bowl of tabbouleh

No we don’t need hip hop
house or trance
Cuz this song about a salad
make you shake your pants

No we don’t need groovy
techno techno
Just tabbouleh
in your head hole

Don’t need bouncers
or velvet rope
I hope by now you
get the point

Don’t need glow stick
or Red Bull vodka
You just gotta shake
where you make the kaka

First you take parsley from your sister
Chop it off like hand of shoplifter
Then take a tomato and dice it
don’t forget to add all the spices

Then you take a half cup of burghul
Oh my God, it’s gone taste so good
Yes this recipe is the bomb but
it tastes best when it’s made by Mamma

In Lebanon
they eat it with coffee
In Libya
eat it with Quadafi

Jordan, Iraq
Bahrain, Saudi
Everybody love
the tabbouleh

In Syria
they eat it the fastest
and make sure to
shake shake Damascus

Them in Yemen
lemon the food-y
And Africa they
move move Djibouti

Tabbouleh
I hope I will finish
It to me is like
Popeye’s spinach

but instead of getting
muscles in both arms
I get a moving groove
in my buttocks

Met a girl
She was a cutie
She said she’d
make me tabbouleh

But she made it
without the tomatoes
So I had to tell her
See you later
