Writing a life of a degree students. A miserable life of me yet couldn't afford to lose any challenges. Besides money, I have faltered in my quest seeking for a valuable things that meant a lot to me.When I was still enjoying my holiday, I was eager to back to college enrolling the degree program by Nothumbria University. Until I officially/truly stepped in the college, I knew that I've chosen a tough route.
Today is 2nd October 2014. It is my second week of the semester out of fourteen. I've heard people saying that degree courses aren't like diplomas. And if you asked me, I would repute diploma was a piece of cake and it was pretty much my honeymoon year. Another way of speaking, I did not truly have the determination to strive, it was a good time. That time, I have friends who had been telling me that they have no time to play computer games at all (I'mma gamer). Frankly speaking, I did not believe that it was true until I'm on the same boat with them.
Sleepy and Tired is what I have been encountering ever since the open semester. I am not sure that is this my mental trouble or I am physically tired in a truthful way? Reading the assignment tasks and projects given by my lecturers for different subjects causes my eyes about to fell off. I am not that kind of person who could insist of doing what he decided to work on. To speak one's mind, to put things bluntly, and I can the open sunroof and tell you, I am weak.

My course mates have an instinctive thought of I am a happy-go-lucky person who doesn't give a shit about my studies. They might right but what pulls me up from the deep hole is the course fees that I have been paying to study. If it was free to study like in high school, I dare not to imagine the depravation side of me and that would also change my thoughts of this chapter of my life. Some people just don't understand the excruciating of being a lunatic. A lunatic does crazy things, speaks boldly and behaves slutty, but there's also the dark side as well, a side that they will never happen to see. They expect you are tough enough to take all the shit, and you've gotta stay stronk and say "Wow I don't give a fuck but please give it more to me." But what truly matters is the hurt feeling in your heart and no one will know except you alone.
I am not afraid of accepting the challenges in the courses but what I'm worried is "am I on the right track doing this assignment"? Lecturer plays an important role in the college, they guide you to solve any problems that you experience and shit. Let's imagine if there is a lecturer who is not capable of teaching clearly and has no enough knowledge to teach you the particular subject?
I can't believe KDUPG risks our results arranging a lecturer who isn't qualified at all.
I feel bad for saying this. He has been good to us but he's too old, at least too old enough to retired. #MoneyOverEverything. We paid the amount of money much more higher than other institutions and rightly we expect to have a better treatment. I don't feel like revealing his name, there's a saying in Chinese, 断人财路 等于杀人父母. He could be fired or shit that I never expect. All I hope is to not get lectured by him for the next semester.
I'm tired and I gotta keep telling myself to stay strong, that's the only thing I could do.
Title: WUT #1 Nvidia Maxwell
Language: Hokkien, Chinese
Description: Now every tech geek is talking about the new arriving of Nvidia Maxwell graphics card. There isn't any official specs of the arriving cards but tons of leaked information and details of Nvidia GTX Geforce 980 and GTX Geforce970. Today I'm gonna be discussing the performance of the new Maxwell card compare to Nvidia Keplar GTX 700 series.
Let us forget about PPS and Qvod. Many have reported regarding the issues on watching dramas/videos on these 2 platforms and it has been awhile since I used them.
Before you continue reading, let's learn the definition of Phishing Website:
Phishing emails usually appear to come from a well-known organization and ask for your personal information — such as credit card number, social security number, account number or password. Often times phishing attempts appear to come from sites, services and companies with which you do not even have an account.
So basically it is a scam, for easy understanding, it pretends to be an website of the official one.
As a tech geek myself, this morning I came across the idea of exploring the new updates of TTK, which was one of my favorite tv program software back in the days. I was surprised by what I saw when I tried to download the software from http://www.tiantiankan.org/ (Don't click on the link first, patient and read below).
(Click to enlarge)
When I was taking the first-look of the web UI design, I found it's lack of informative details. The website looks very simple and no other software are recommended on the site. For your information, China software is widely known as the most cooperative software, one usually cooperates with one another, even though they are not developed by the same company. Take a deep look at the button on the header where aiding the user to download the software. Technically, it is not a button but a picture. I mean the whole header, the entire blue thing is a picture.

What if you clicked the button? Your browser/downloader begins to download a software, which I believe it is not a malware or a virus (I'm not sure about this). What is it then?
|Read the URL. PPTV (PPLIVE) SPOTTED.|

Installation of the software
It is an old version v3.1.1.0013 of PPTV (PPLive) from http://www.tiantiankan.org/, while the latest version by official release is V3.5.4 which is shown on PPTV official website.

Here's the official link for TianTianKan 天天看高清影视 http://www.tiantiankan123.com/
The link doesn't seem convincing as it includes 123 in the address but whatonearthishappening, the shit is real.
So who made this website you may ask? No idea, maybe this has proven the how intense is the competition among these drama/tv/movie watching software.

Believe it or not. Negaraku is back in conjunction with Merdeka. According to Bernama, Seventy theatres throughout the country will play the national anthem, Negaraku, and three promos on the independence before the screening of any film in their premises for three weeks beginning tonight in conjunction with the 57th anniversary of Merdeka
Here's the video I posted on my Instagram and shared through my Twitter and Facebook.
Yay or nay? Believe it or not, here's my personal experience, whenever I share this video or news about signing national anthem in cinema with my friends, 8~9 out of 10 would say: "WTF is this", "Damn Sohai la", "Walau need so many pattern meh", "I'm speechless" so and so. YES, YOU! I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU!.
My reaction was to stay quiet with a smile every time when my friends threw their indignant faces while complained this and that to me.
If you asked me, is there anything wrong there?
Certainly Not, this is my answer. Come on guys, 57th Merdeka is on 31st of August and the precious day is just around the corner. Imagine how many our of ancestors, parents and we people have been through, and you know that we're still living well today.
The movie was "Detective Conan: Dimensional Sniper" on that day and with no doubt, many Japaneses family and couples were there. Even though this ain't their nationality, they did as what we did to stand still while the national anthem was going on. However, there are still couple of Malaysians (How did I recognize them as Malaysian? They speak Malaysian Chinese
So what do you think now? I know there was a social war during the election last year. Why don't you just get through it and look forward? This doesn't sound good but I've still got to say this, some Malaysian especially Penanglangs don't like the Malaysia government at all. And what the governments did were all considered full of foolishness and immature actions.
Basically it means that, "People thinks this is right, oh yeah so I think this is right too"
Okay now, here's another example, I'm not pretty sure about other states in Malaysia, but in Penang, there are a lot of countdown activities in some public places and clubs. One of the most-trending one will be held in Precinct 10 "Merdeka Euphoria Countdown: Precinct 10 Outdoor Festival". I've seen a lot people showing off their tickets on Facebook and Instagram. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is stupid, but I hope that those people would remind themselves the significance of this activity, not only today because everybody is celebrating Merdeka and I join the fun and the day after,
Here's another more obvious phenomenon, do you still remember after the election last year, people started changing their Facebook profile picture to BLACK as a sign of dirty-election? (I'm not saying this is true, it has been so long and the result is the result, that's all). Do you still remember all the Bersih and Ubah picture you made as your profile picture? What was your point? To support To-Make-A-Change right? Then what about Merdeka? It is because nobody started the trend so you just don't know what to do? And all these years you have been saying "I love Malaysia but not the government" and yet you refuse to put Malaysia flag as your profile picture?
The reason for why am I saying this is not because of
Last but not least, Happy Birthday to Malaysia and Happy Holiday to all Malaysians!

Enough of the proclaims and allow me to share you what I did during my holidays. I know that "Time flies really fast" has been widely on writing and it seems like a boring-paragraph-starting but still I'm gonna use it here. After leaving my job as a computer technician @ Gadgetzone in mid-Jun, I started catching up everything that I have missed during my working period like games, news, trending stuffs and places of interest in my hood. My life has become a pattern ever since my homies left Penang and some even to other countries. I'm not saying that I have no friends at all. Honestly speaking, I might be a little oddity to categorize my friends. Sometimes I choose certain people to do certain stuffs at certain places. Some people call me a selfish person for not sharing or not caring for them, they ain't wrong tho. And sometimes, I am pretty much a difficult person to get a long. All the time, I am hoping to see all my homies back in the hood and chilling together once again. In spite of saying this would happen some day in reality but it doesn't seem so easy tho. As far as I remember, it happens only once a year which is during the Chinese New Year. So I precious the moment when I get to hang out along with them. #NoHomo Can't deny that, those people are my golden teenage buddies, imagine how many foolish things we have done, I betcha did.
Things getting interesting when my best buddy Ginger back from Subang. That being said our company got a little bit bigger.
Alright now, I don't know where should I start it with, allow me to share some photos I found on my phone and let the photos say it all. Photos might be little off quality.
2nd visit to Ginger's place at Subang SS15, this time I have a company with me, Bernard.
|Now this picutre is rare. INCREADIBRULY rare. Definitely not because of the person in the photo. As gamers you know, we usually play games during the midnight until the next morning then we go to bed. We have been planning to have DimSum as breakfast and this mission was never succeeded until this time. And it has never ever happened again until today, at least we know it won't be too soon.|
The title "Story of My Life as A Driver" could be one of the chapter in my holiday diary. I've been a driver fetching my 2 younger brother to school, tuition, malls and shit. This video was taken during the time when I was fetching my youngest brother from school. I wasn't really pissed off, those words that I used might sound offensive but #chillbro, I was too bored in the car.
"Vulgarity may disturbs you, watch at your own risk!"
|Having shisha with PHPH, Ginger and LX at Istimewa Ivory. What makes it a best spot to chill, Dat Chair Tho!|
Allow me to analyze you some points below. Was it a Conspiracy or Coincidence? You be the judge.
PS: By the way, these are not based on my theory.
Malaysia First Airlines Disaster: March 27, 1977
Malaysia Airlines flight MH653 at Tanjung Kupang.Malaysia Second Airlines Disaster (N\A Still Undefined): March 7, 2014
2014 - 1977 = 37
It happens 37 years later
3 = Month (March)
7 = Date (day)
0 = 0 News (Still undefined today 13th March 2014)
I've found a very interesting topic that you might be interested to read out. I understand there are people saying that we shouldn't be saying or spreading anything which has not been officially proven but besides of praying and showing your love for #MH370, you could know even more about it if you wanted to, in spite of true or fake. I treat this article as a story or a reference, of course I ain't gonna trust no nothing by reading it.
Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 conspiracy theories
There’s primarily two sources you can check the pulse of this; DavidIcke.com’s forum, and GodLikeProductions’ forum. GLP made it on the radar of the MSM, so looks like these theories are gaining some traction. Some of the theories are echoed between the two forums, and there are many posts in each, so I might be skipping some, so feel free to look around for yourself.
One theory claims that there is numerology at play here because of the occult importance of the number 777. The Malaysia Airlines aircraft flown on Flight MH370 was a Boeing 777, and although some people are mixing up the aircraft model with the flight number, that 777 is the link they are claiming. The 777 stuff is covered on my website with Rihanna’s 777 symbolism:

I'm recently working hard on my project which is developing a software called Cashier/Inventory Managing System. It is my final project grouping with 2 of my young pricks Kavien and Suckock. Glad to have'em in the team since the past two years when I first entered college until this final semester as finishing our very last project.
I have pretty much-much time as I do not need to attend any college classes no more. It was like I had only 2 hours class per week and for the rest of time, I be on 'flying-high' mode, enjoying every piece of time I could spare. Today, it's about to come to an end. Submission date and presentation day is just around the corner. And a week later, I have another 6 months holiday until my degree course. Meaning that, I'd better off seeking something really valuable to do which is most probably getting a job. Today as in 8th of March is a 'opportunity day' of Starbucks store around Malaysia, if I had the time to be start working by next week, trust me I would give a chance for the interview. Nevertheless, I would still prefer working in a PC store and I have couple of places on the list and ready to be in a part of it. Let's see how it turns out 2 weeks later.
Besides of completing our final project, I'm in the progress of editing the highlight videos of KDT (KDU DOTA 2 Tournament) which was first organized by me in 2013. Check out this article posted by my college "An Online Battlefield Day for KDU’s DOTA Boyz!" Probably because of I'm just a rookie in Sony Vegas Pro, I've been spending tons of time in editing and only a little part of the video has been done. I've even made a teaser trailer for this
A CPU affects the performance of your GPU. We called this "Bottlenecking". So what does Bottleneck means in PC hardware. Basically it refers to the components that restricts your system from achieving better performance. Meaning that if you have a slow CPU, even you bought the strongest GPU(Graphics Processor Unit), you still can't really get all of its performance. This is called as Bottlenecking.
CPU speed is measured by GHz(Gigahertz) Check out here for more info about Hertz. The more GHz, the faster speed you get, just like the transferring rate. Does that mean an older CPU which has 4.0GHz can performs better than a newer model CPU which running at 3.3GHz? Not really. But yes by overclocking your CPU, it could achieve better performance than then next model one, but not quite much.
Let's get into the brands of CPU. Here's the frequently asked question. Which one should I go for? INTEL or AMD? If you asked such question, due to the fact that I am more into price concerned, I'd suggest you to go for AMD. BUT I'm not asking you not to choose INTEL. I cannot deny that INTEL processing power somehow works better than AMD. So let's make it this way, if you have a tight budget, go for AMD FX-8xxx (September 2013) it just around RM6XX, if you don't care about the pricing, then INTEL is a way to go.
How to differentiate the Generations?
For INTEL CPUs, just take a look at the first number of the CPU model. For example, for third-gen CPUs 3XXX, that model looks pretty much like this, i5-3570/i7-3770.
Differences between i3, i5 and i7
The more cores there are, the more tasks (known as threads) can be served at the same time. The lowest number of cores can be found in Core i3 CPUs, i.e., which have only two cores. Currently, all Core i3s are dual-core processors.
Currently all Core i5 processors, except for the i5-661, are quad cores in Australia. The Core i5-661 is only a dual-core processor with a clockspeed of 3.33 GHz. Remember that all Core i3s are also dual cores. Furthermore, the i3-560 is also 3.33GHz, yet a lot cheaper. Sounds like it might be a better buy than the i5. What gives?
At this point, I’d like to grab the opportunity to illustrate how a number of factors affect the overall processing power of a CPU and determine whether it should be considered an i3, an i5, or an i7.
Even if the i5-661 normally runs at the same clockspeed as Core i3-560, and even if they all have the same number of cores, the i5-661 benefits from a technology known as Turbo Boost. -source: http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/article/386100/what_difference_between_an_intel_core_i3_i5_i7_/
Bla-bla-bla. So which one should I go? Let me put it this way. If you're going to use your computer as an office tool, just surfing nets and stuffs like words, excel files, i3 CPU is already more than what you need. If you're a gamer, then i5 is a way to go. Last, if you're going to be doing a lot of rendering pictures and videos, using your computer as a workstation, then i7 is the best option.
So you may ask who wins in this competition. There's no answer for this. Perhaps only those fanboys could figure out who's the winner.
I'd advise you to put your money more on your processor. Of course you may wanna look for more advises from the internet instead of just reading what I've written above. I'm briefly writing this just want to you have the basic concept of what the CPU really are.
