Welp…I just got back from my Java mid semester test. It was pretty easy but I’m kicking myself
now for not studying the theory part more. I was led to believe that most of the marks will come
from modifying source code, but that part was just a measly 3 marks while the theory portion
carries 7 marks. Theory stuff is my forte too, so I wish I paid more attention to that. Oh well.
Anyway, I’m feeling like a drowned rat right now. It started raining at around 3 pm just now and I
went out with clad in only a shirt with a T shirt underneath. It wasn’t really cold when I left so
I didn’t think of bringing my coat along. Which inevitably makes it rain and drenched me while I
walked back from the campus center. Anyway, I didn’t get much sleep last night and what I had was a
caffeine fueled nightmarish nap, so I was feeling pretty sleepy when I got on the bus. It didn’t
help that I had a sandwich before and food always makes me sleepy. To top it off, the muzak playing
in the shuttle bus is a lullaby! I swear to God, it was a damned lullaby. Sweet Mary, mother of


Strange. I was listening to Digi Charat’s Welcome! 2000 track and suddenly felt slightly
depressed. It’s rather like an RPG.

You see a messy room with soothing music wafting softly out of it


You are suddenly hit by an overwhelming sense of Despair

or maybe not. I noticed that I have a static IP address at the halls after a reverse DNS lookup.
Eureka! I thought and modified my webcam script to load the image by FTP from my machine.
Alas…even though I have a static IP, the Monash network does not allow outside connections as I
found out. Oh well…back to my revision for tomorrow’s test.

P/S – I changed the webcam image manually anyway coz it’s getting stale.

The Porcelain God

I think I’m slightly lactose intolerant. I’ve noticed that every time I drink a significant
amount of milk or any other dairy food, I end up in the toilet. Anyway, I’ve found that coffee
granules tastes pretty good. I was lazy to wash my only mug last night so I ended up shoveling some
coffee into my mouth using a plastic fork and chasing it down with some Breaka. Pretty good buzz
and the coffee tastes good too. All roasted and rich.

Sleep is for the weak!

or something. :) I have this problem…whenever I want to go to sleep, I have to keep my
thoughts in a low key mode about 1 hour before I plan to sleep. If not, my brain will keep on
fixating on whatever that I thought of and I can’t go to sleep. Today, it started with a simple
thought. I was thinking that it’s a bit chilly. Then I thought about one time when I went to a rave
and it was real cold outside. Then my brain starts producing music. The muted bass sounds you hear
from outside a club or rave. Then my brain thinks I dropped speed. I get the surge of adrenaline
and then I can’t sleep. Jesus Christ bananas. Now I’ll have to wait another hour before trying to
sleep again. I haven’t been to a rave in a long, long time. I don’t mean the cheesy quasi raves by
big name DJs organized by clubs. I was talking about the underground stuff where everybody is just
out to have fun, leave the bullshit and the attitude at the door type of thing. The small
gatherings where no one dresses up and everyone has the PLUR thing going and everyone is just out
to drop some chemicals and dance! Man, I miss those days. Oh well, back to sleep.


Noticed that the Original Juice Co. are still using Valencia orange concentrate in their

If you can’t read that label it says:

Due to a severe shortage of Australian oranges this current season, we have had to blend some
Australian Valencia orange concentrate with our squeezed daily orange juice, as a temporary
measure. We would like to assure all of our customers, that when the new season oranges becomes
available, we will return to our normal 100% squeezed daily product.

I’ve been drinking this stuff for a long time, and I actually feel that the current batch that
has orange concentrate tastes better! It’s sweeter.

Reformatting woes

I finally got around to reformatting my computer. I was using a warez version of Windows XP and
even with an activation crack, it expired on me so I was forced to spend nearly the whole night on
reinstalling. It’s far too complicated to explain. Let it be known that I have 3 warez Windows XP

CD #1: Proven to work but scratched to the point of being unusable. Bootable.

CD #2: Proven to work only in my DVD drive. Unbootable.

CD #3: Recent burn using an ISO of a corporate edition. Not working.

Basically I took the longest route and finally gave up and reinstalled Windows Me. Mmm…it
crashes on me every 3 minutes. Nice. I would install Linux but unfortunately it does not have a
version of ICQ that works behind a HTTPS firewall. How sad.
