I dreamt that someone was selling MS-Pro for $140

Strange dream alright, and I could only dream.

And I was conscious enuff in my dream to tell myself that if it's too good to be true it most probably is; so many cheating cases lately, I just can't trust any single seller.

My new speakers - MX5020.5

MX5020.5 - because MX5021 is a 2.1 system (hence the 21) with two woofers per satellite, MX5020 is a 2.0 system (hence the... you get it) with one woofer per satellite, and this is a mix between the two - two woofers per satellite and no subwoofer.

These are (you guessed it) satellites from a MX5021, I saw them on eBay for $20. And I needed nearfield satellites for my laptop.

Green and Blue

It came to my attention that Windows releases are often based on these two colors.

And those with the color Blue are usually successful while those in Green are crap.

Blue - Windows 98 - successful
Green - Windows Me (the wordings of Me) - failure
Blue - Windows 2000 - successful
Green - Windows XP Home - failure
Blue - Windows XP Pro - successful
Green - Windows Vista - failure
Blue - Windows 7 - success

So, my advice: don't go for green Windows releases.

Songs that you grow to like after hating it at first

Have you ever heard a song that you didn't care about at first but after listening it a few times you start to find it good?

Like anchovies is also an acquired taste, so I heard.

And ways to force people to listen to a song multiple times include blasting it over the radio, in shops, and as TV show theme songs.

There was a time when TV shows decided to use real songs for their themes. The amount of exposure and promotion that the song gets is awesome. This is proven by the fact that a bunch of primary 3 students that were my classmates could memorize the opening song of the 1997 Mediacorp Chinese drama series 长河 (that was when SG shows were actually good) Instead of paying the music producer to use the song, the music producer should pay the show producer to use their song instead.

Well, whether who pays who decide on which side benefits more - a show using a hit album would get a lot of attraction and benefit. But it would be even more money if the producers of the shows themselves own the theme songs too.

Which is what is happening in the Anime industry.

(And many other markets too - though US practices both using hit albums and writing their own. As for Singapore... lets just say that they are forced to keep this industry running)

And some of the songs actually made it high up Oricon top 200.

Though I'm not saying that Anime songs are inferior. In my opinion in some ways the opposite.

Back to opening topic,

On the other hand there is the other extreme, songs that seemed to sound good on first listen yet when you decided to get it it sounded so bad the experience scars you for life. Songs that appear on radio/TV in part in PVs are highly guilty of this.

A hardworking spider

I returned home for a one week "break" and placed my laptop in its usual place.

That night I spotted this spider with its web between my mouse and the tabletop:

A sideway shot to show this isn't just some dirt on the ground. Here you can faintly make out is legs.

I destroyed its web because I needed to use my laptop. A few days later it made another web quickly near the keyboard of my desktop. I decided to put it out of its misery of waiting for flying insects that will never come into my room. Plus it was getting irritating.

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS Itasha Model

Itashas (literally pain cars) are cars that are heavily decorated with pictures of Anime characters. (It's definitely painful when you can't drive that car to any self-respecting workplace anymore)

Usually I don't rant about this kind of stuff, but


So where are my Subaru, Nissan, Mazda and Ferrari?
