Headache giler!!!

Woke up today morning around 5 something with an awful headache!! It's like so sudden and painful and I dunno why it came...

*O_O* Painnnnn...

After, that I telan one panadol and it stopped...Now feeling much much better. Arghhh...

Too stress I guess, stupid industrial attachment report -_- Let me get over it and I'll... be free once more.

Life sux when you're burned out, guess I went through that last nite...was pushing myself to finish the report and slept at 2am.

It's not easy being at the being selected as a role model for other students just becoz of my internship in Intel, I wonder how real can it be...or is it the Intel brand name all along. Fake or real? God knows...I just wanna graduate and get the heck outta here. -_-

Like what this quote means:

Quote: “Life isn't meant to be easy. It's hard to take being on the top - or on the bottom. I guess I'm something of a fatalist. You have to have a sense of history, I think, to survive some of these things... Life is one crisis after another.” - Richard M. Nixon, American President

It's hard being at the top or at the bottom. That's life. Just lemme be low profile, and be appreaciated for what I do. I dont care about recognition from the whole world, I just wanna live life....and contribute to the society. Famous? I rather not.

Let's hope my 5 minutes speech next week to 3 diffrent departments (BIS, BICT and BITN) will go well. Crowds...and I'm given 5 minutes, how better can it get? (try structuring your speech/presentation for a 5 minute talk and you'll know why) Gimme half an hour to 1 hour and I wouldn't complain.

Pray for me, I need tons of it. =(

New 512 DDR RAM

Wow, I went to pyramid today to buy new DDR 512 RAM becoz my comp is getting slower with the current 256 RAM. =.=

So what the heck, I forked out RM230 for the 512 RAM, and it was a blessing!!! Now my comp is like a high end processor core 2! lol lol.

Can multitask and games are smooth...

Didnt know RAM makes such a huge diffrence @@ It was really well worth it. I had lagging issues before this...and now no issues at all.

Fixing the RAM at first was have to push in real hard, and make sure the comp is able to detect it. Finally it did, what a relive after like...2 attempts. LOL..

My job money, the end of it.

About love

Wow is this a coincidence? o.o Maybe God is trying to tell me something.

Posted it up as a bible quote, and today while reading the daily reading, got this:

Reading 1
1 Cor 12:31-13:13

Brothers and sisters:
Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts.

But I shall show you a still more excellent way.

If I speak in human and angelic tongues
but do not have love,
I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.
And if I have the gift of prophecy
and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge;
if I have all faith so as to move mountains,
but do not have love, I am nothing.
If I give away everything I own,
and if I hand my body over so that I may boast
but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It is not jealous, love is not pompous,
it is not inflated, it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing
but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails.
If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing;
if tongues, they will cease;
if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.
For we know partially and we prophesy partially,
but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.
When I was a child, I used to talk as a child,
think as a child, reason as a child;
when I became a man, I put aside childish things.
At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror,
but then face to face.
At present I know partially;
then I shall know fully, as I am fully known.
So faith, hope, love remain, these three;
but the greatest of these is love.

How long do I actually read the daily readings? Like ages. And suddenly this pops up.

And indeed sadly, the world we know today has less and less understanding of what love really is. And this passage explains it to the fullest.

Love, great, everlasting, and perfect.

Just to explain what I'm doing currently..

Hehe, I know there are people out there really confuse over what I'm doing here, so I'm gonna start explaining in brief...hope you're ready for this:

Longest project – 1 month of research
Main resource: ADUG (Agile Development User Group) in Intel
(XP is one of the many sub software methodologies of Agile)
Suggest improvements for our XP team
Focus on TFS, CI, and VersionOne.

An Example of an XP methodology explained in diagram (you can know more about it here and here):

Not going in depth, as CI is too complicated and TFS(click here) looks like some Visual Studio thingy. VersionOne you can learn more here (too expensive, price is scary)

So, I recommended my final resolution and they agreed to the plan, viola. Mission Accomplish. Consultancy is just something I might get into once I graduated.

Other things I have learn:

I'm a pro-intel!! (AMD bluek pui pui) Nyahaha... XD

Breakthrough with a tool

My colleague Kok Chung had some problem switching from the Team Explorer's Source Safe to Visual Source Safe 6.0. Now the problem is solved! Prevented him from the need to uninstall Team Explorer.

All thanks to the MSDN forum below:
MSDN Team Systems Forum

And the life saver link which the forummer gave me:
DevHawk Blog

It's so easy! XD Screenshots:

Love it! =D

Switching is just as easy as extracting the file, running the exe...choosing the desired Source Safe, and done! Wow amazing...

my department's visit was awesome

Aweeesome...that's what I can say. It went on too well!! It was unbelievable.

I was like :O when my co-ordinator Sherly told me it was the best internship visit she ever attend and the best presentation so far...

Wow. Just blew my hats off...

Fantastic...she even said I could get an award for this...And Puvana said that she wants me to present it to the group of people in Sunway BIS course.

Collaboration, at first I thought it was gonna be bad..but it ended up great! Everything went smoothly and it was a good deal. Starting off with internship collboration, maybe 1-2 a year...going on for 3-5 years and move on to more collaboration in education, such as programmes, and talks etc...Intel may even visit Sunway's SCT one day, courtesy of Eng Hoo's call.

Wow. Sherly did it this time. I was so afraid that it was gonna fail, the collaboration.

And I didn't expect my presentation was that good! LOL XD Thanks to Ching Yee my manager for those extra editing with my slides and supervising me. ^^ She is not that bad after all!!

Gundam SEED Screenshots

^^ The reasons why I like Gundam....And the above is just Gundam SEED...gonna post up Gundam SEED Destiny pics.

The story of war is just amazing, telling how humanity should avoid it. The complexity that came with the ability of cloning/making perfect humans(genetic engineering), like one of the pilots above, Kira Yamato. His suffering of seeing those of his friends died...And he himself being forced to join the military. Since he is a perfect clone, he can handle a gundam perfectly(two gundams which he pilots are Gundam Strike and Freedom - both exceptionally agile becoz of his piloting skills). Yet he is a peacekeeper at heart, he wanted the wars to stop...and finally, he quit Zaft, and joined ORB, bringing in his good friend Athrun(also from Zaft)...and together fighting for a more peaceful Earth and space(Zaft has a satelite base orbitting earth, their homeland after being exile by clone-haters).

Touching storyline, exhilarating graphics all over Gundam SEED. The mechas are not the main characters, it the the people who pilot them. It is about politics, future politics that evolves not only humans, but the Zaft(genetically modified humans, not born of natural womb, but cloned in labs) against the normal humans(who are very jealous of them), and also the ORB(neutral party, having both clones and humans living in the city, where the main character Kira comes from and is sided with).

It is about good vs evil...and how we should all love one another like the ORBS, who won the war through neutrality, having a clear stand on issues like clones and humans living in peace.

Me collecting? Hehe all becoz I'm a fan of Gundam ;)

I hope the latest Gundam Eternity will be released soon. Heard it's gonna be better then SEED and Destiny.

*hugs all my favourite gundams..
