sixthseal.com is migrating!

I’ll be migrating the site to WordPress at the end of this month. I’ve stayed with Movable Type for a long time coz it was the first CMS that came out specifically for blogging. I had a HTML manually updated blog before this coz I started in 2002.

However, MT has a higher server load and a lot of security vulnerabilities. The dry run on castitas.com (no it’s not the old castitas :p) seems to be working well without any broken links so I’m going to just go ahead and do it instead of waiting for a design.

I’m sure a lot of you have experienced problems with commenting and load time and I apologize for that. This will be fixed during the migration to WordPress.

Anyway, in unrelated technical news…

The new Peugeot 207 looks mighty interesting. It has a lot of features that is usually the domain of high end cars which you have to pay through the nose for. The 207 has auto wipers and auto headlights as standard with climate control (no more old fashioned air conditioning dials). It also has a USB port and Bluetooth for your music needs. The Bluetooth can even pair with your phone to answer calls!

Peugeot is not a huge name in Malaysia but the car looks damn awesome in this video clip. There’s the sporty styling, dynamic looks and excellent suspension. Check out how they drift. I reckon they have pretty comfortable seats as well since I’ve been to a drifting class before and it’s not as easy as it looks. There are 2 airbags and Tiptronic shift where you can opt for manual control over the auto car when you want a more exhilarating experience.

Peugeot-207

All this in a sub 100k car – it even has front and back fog lights! The new 1.6 liter Peugeot 207 – a Peugeot for everyone!

sixthseal.com 4th Birthday!

sixthseal.com was officially launched on 19th April 2002. :)

4th birthday

sixthseal.com celebrates it’s 4th anniversary
today! It’s been up to close to half a decade and still going. There
were several setbacks this year, mostly due to a drug possession case
which severely restricted the nature of my posts so I’m going to do one
last experience report to commemorate the fourth anniversary of the
site (which is a traditionally unlucky number in Chinese culture, and
certainly is an unlucky year for me).

Ecstasy pill name: Red apples
Pill color: Pink with red specks
Circa: KL, Malaysia 2006 (er…I mean 1906, sorry about the date confusion ;))
Suspected contents: MDMA with ketamine (qualitative findings, not reagent tested)
Other substances consumed: Yes. ;)

4th anniversary ecstasy

MDMA and ketamine pill combinations are actually pretty common in
Malaysia. These are nicely pressed pills (hard) with beveled edges and
a solid, high quality imprint of an apple. These are nicely done pills,
not a shoddy home kitchen pill press product.

The subject (male, 60 kg) and a companion (female, 50 kg) swallowed
1 1/2 pills each (crushed up) on an empty stomach and interesting
dissociative effects characteristic of ketamine started to manifest, so
the decision was made to powder the remaining pill and insufflate it.

Subjective characteristics associated with MDMA (empathy, initial
“Ecstasy coming up rush”, blurred vision) started to manifest so the
remainder powdered pill was split into lines and selective sensory
deprivation (scientists refer to it by the technical term “switching
off the lights and turning up the music” ;)) was initiated.

4th anniversary lines

Nystagmus and mild hallucinations started setting in at the peak (T+
0:45) and the lines were insufflated over an unknown period of time
(snorting the powdered pills produced a “speedy” rush with dominating
ketamine qualities e.g. confabulation and time-space disorientation).

4th anniversary cannabis

Cannabis was smoked at about T+ 1:30 and throughout the next few
hours which mellowed out the trip (not an intended effect) but the
visual anomalies and nystagmus and CNS MDMA effects lasted until T+
3:00 before tapering off. Subject’s companion also reported similar
experiences. Other substances consumed:

4th anniversary other substances

Erimin 5 (nimetazepam)
Xanax (alprazolam)
Alcohol

Rating: 6/10
(The “pig” imprinted pills circa December, 2005 from Kuching seems to have a higher MDMA content)

Thank you for allowing me to make one final experience report of a substance consumed in…er, 1906. ;)

Without further adieu, here’s a recap of the troubled history of sixthseal.com during the past year:

I got arrested, everyone knows that by now, so I won’t go through any drug or pharmaceutical posts.

Viagra (sildenafil tablets) vs. Cialis (tadalafil tablets) [sixthseal.com]
A tongue-in-cheek comparison between the two popular ED
(Erectile Dysfunction) pharmaceuticals. Oops…did I just say
“pharmaceuticals”? ;)

Before the…oh alright, people have always been rooting for turtles.

I sneezed and my atomic bomb went off [sixthseal.com]
I still think this is the funniest post title for the last
year. MapleSEA.com is another corporate time drainer – active in
sixthseal.com via MapleStory since 2006.

Google AdSense cheque [sixthseal.com]
sixthseal.com was doing good on Google AdSense (trial case
study since the site involves drug and pharmaceutical content) until
too many complaints flooded in (from other bloggers *rolls eyes*) and I
was informed of it by my trial case handler after only the third cheque
was received.

provides. :)

Hail to the King, Baby!

Excuse me

I’ve tried to adhere to the “at least one post a day” dicipline but
I’m afriad I’ll have to take a short break now. I’m sure no one wants
to hear about the darkness I feel or allusions to depression w/ anxiety
so I’ll be away for a while to screw on my head and I’ll be back and
posting as usual in a couple of days maximum. :)
Better living through chemistry – for every problem, a chemical
solution? Nothing a quick trip to the local pharmacy or a couple of
calls won’t fix, wink wink nudge nudge. Yeah, but I choose to go this
way this time. I haven’t had anything other than alcohol since I landed
in Sibu, and I don’t plan to. I want to do this.
Still I can’t help but feel like I’m “selling out” in some wierd way.
Have I buckled under pressure? Well, no. Anyway, I’ve also seen weblogs
go on “hiatus” and they never seem to get back the pre-hiatus
pageviews. Does that bother me? I’ll be the first to admit that it
does, I won’t pretend that I’m just writing for myself (or my friends),
your presense here does make a difference.
Well, it’s a little dark over here and doing things seems to take all
the more energy out of me. Thanks for commenting everyone, I promise I
will be back in a couple of days! If you need to reach me before then,
call me at 016 869 0110 (+60 16 869 0110). I apologize for all the
unreplied mails/comments and my latent participation in everything. I
will reply them in 2 or 3 days maximum, and that’s a definate time
frame.
sixthseal.com will be back in a couple of days. :)
