The 7 Deadly Sins

Did a late night Coles run with Adrian to boost energy levels (by getting
sugary stuff). Magnum is doing a promotion where they have the 7 deadly
sins as different types of ice creams. It’s supposed to be limited
edition, in that it’s only available for 4 months. I got all 7 different
types and so far, I’ve eaten the Sloth one. Those who know me will
recognize ‘Sloth’ as my sin. Heh. The ice cream stick even has a phrase engraved
into it. The Sloth one goes

“IT IS BETTER TO HAVE LOAFED & LOST THAN NEVER TO HAVE LOAFED AT ALL”
.
Amen brother!

I’ve taken photos of the different wrappers. See them here:

Vanity

Envy


Sloth


Revenge


Greed


Gluttony


Lust

Tiny Windows Games!

Look here, these are actual screenshots taken on my 1024 x 768 desktop. These games are perfect
for playing in class or at work for slackers like me. They are so small, you can easily cover it
with another window. Some even run on the taskbar! Amazing. As you can see, I’m not the best chess
player in the world. Got thrashed on the easiest setting. Go to their web page and download the
games, it’s all free.

Spoiled rotten by broadband

I’ve been told that it takes upwards of 1 minute for my main page to load
on a normal dial up connection. I’m on a broadband connection (burstable
to 10Mbps, normally 400kbps) so I didn’t realize that. If you’re on a dial
up (that is you use a modem and a phone line to connect to the net) please
mail me and
tell me how long it takes for my page to load so I can optimize the size.

Double Time Spell

Just caught Sabrina the Teenage Witch on Channel 7. That double time spell
sure is nifty. Pretty useful considering I have two assignments due next
week and a test as well. Heh. Anyway, my website was down for about 4
hours this afternoon. Apparently the server I’m on had some problems but
it’s fixed now. My apologies to those who couldn’t access the site just
now.

As you can see from the picture, I get terrible TV reception. Living in
the halls means I don’t have access to an external antenna so I have to
make do with those indoor ones. That’s a screen dump of my TV tuner in
action.

Being a vegetarian must suck

Woke up at around 10 am this morning and decided to get something to eat
from the dining room. There is some kind of LAN going in the function hall
with an Ausgamers banner. Anyway, I got two vegetable burritos and an
orange juice. Now, normally the burritos that the dining room has is
really tasty so I was looking forward to eating it. I have to say that the
vegetarian kind is nothing to write home about. I had mistakenly assumed
that the vegetarian kind tastes the same as the normal kind but as they
say, when you assume, you make an ASS out of U and ME. I’m feeling queasy
now…the burritos was absolutely saturated with onions! The raw kind! The
dining hall must own stock in onion farming companies.

The bane of my existence

Webcam not working

OK, if anyone hasn’t figured it out by now, the webcam is not working. I’m
behind a really restrictive proxy so I don’t have direct FTP access. I do
have full access via my Unix account, but to automate my webcam, I need to
write a shell script, and I don’t have time to do that now. I’m swamped
with assignments and I have a test to study for too. I will get it up and
working by next weekend the latest. Anyway, I’ve decided that I’ve lived in
darkness for long enough, which was why I got a table lamp just now. My
room lamp is broken, and two trips by the electrician isn’t enough to fix
it. Apparently the bulb shorts out in a couple of minutes. I don’t know
what’s going on with that, but I’m not going to live in darkness one more
day. Its depressing. My lotus lamp casts a nice purple glow doesn’t it?

Let there be light

Just came back from Barning’s (Edit: I’ve been told it’s Bunnings) Warehouse with Adrian. Got myself a nifty
lotus shaped table lamp. I had to get one of those little E14 40 watt
bulbs to go with it. On hindsight, I wished I had gotten the 25 watts one
coz 40 watts is too bright. I can’t even look at the lamp without seeing
one of those worm like things in my eyes. I’m sure that’s a prelude to
burning my retinas. Anyway, I also got myself an axe. Yes, an axe. No, I
don’t know what I’m going to use it for but its just so tempting. Its only
A$2.95. Mmm, I could do serious bodily harm with this baby.

sixthseal.com is officially live!

Hello and welcome. This is my webcam and blog. I will update this page
at least once a day and probably much more frequently than that. That is
the point of weblogs right? Don’t answer, its one of them…uh…
rhetorical questions (bonus marks if you get the reference). My name is
Huai Bin, read more about me in the About Me link on the right. Why
sixthseal.com?

And I beheld when he had opened
the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became
black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth
her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every
mountain and island were moved out of their places.
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the
chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man,
hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face
of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Revelation 6:12-17

There you have it. Bookmark me, and I shall lead the wild into the ways of
the man.
