    making a hackintosh early in 2012

    Long story short: If you have no patience or time, don’t waste your time, because it takes time and reading to assemble a hackintosh. If you think it’s fun to tinker around with software/hardware until they work, please continue reading. The easiest way is to get someone to prepare a bootable USB (>=8G) with 10.7.4 […]

    life, as at july 19 2011

    As I walked back into the building, I heard a loud “clanck”. That’s the sound of metal hitting metal; the result of swinging my right hand too close to the railing. I let out a customary “ouch” and carried on walking up the stairs, without taking a second look at my watch. After all, I […]

    htc desire vs iphone4 power user review

    A bit of history, I previously used the first gen iPhone 2G, the painstakingly slow iPhone 3, and recently got a chance to play with the iPhone 4. Now, the 2G was cool but 2G was still 2G. The iPhone 3 nearly made me threw the phone of out the window for it’s ridiculously slow […]

    study so hard for what?

    In the early 1980s to 1990s, parents have always emphasised on how important education was, how it was essential to get an o level or a  diploma to get a job, how a Government job is an iron rice bowl, etc. etc. In those times, educators (mainly teachers) were highly revered and admired, I wouldn’t […]

    unable to login to tweekdeck desktop

    Aparrently it’s quite the documented fact on the faq but it’s not indexed, so here’s how you do it. Problem: You delete your twitter account, and then you add another tweeter account, but tweetdeck doesn’t save your data and there’s no way to select your default account.

    Shopping and area maps for Tokyo

    If you’ve ever been to Tokyo by yourself, you will know that it is ridiculously messy if you’re trying to find a particular store or location by yourself. Especially those areas which the locals go to for super authentic non touristy food/fun/sights. You will also know that the free maps from the airport are useless […]

    bootmgr is missing windows 7

    This is a freaking big annoyance. If you install windows 7 with more than one harddisk, it will automatically make the 2nd harddisk some kind of backup directory which windows refuses to format. Yeah sure, it’s a great add in, but really irritating when you decide to plug out that drive. I really wanted to […]
