something has happened

I started this post with the title “nothing has happened” but as i typed the first line this windows box BSODed on me. Had to wait for it to restart before I can continue the post. I have always wished to migrate to handphone blogging with wifi, which I can do on my bed. I often have thoughts to pen while I’m there, or thought of something to google on, but its too much trouble and sleep-distruptive to get up, switch on the PC, wait for bootup… and then type, then wait for shutdown… It’s easier to pull out my mobile and do it. I guess I’m a permanent fan of bed-computing. From placing my desk right beside my bed (in aussie), to using DIN extensions so I can stretch my keyboard to my bed. If I could I think I will do everything in bed. This was supposed to be a one-line post but its getting too long. I shall stop here and… yep, go to bed.

n79 hit stores

Saw the ads on TV and print few days ago, but it didn’t say when it’ll be released. Happen to pass by Nokia Concept Store while shopping yesterday, and found that it was out yesterday. Got my hands on the actual set and tried it.

Good = weight, camera.

Bad = lock on top (maybe can find s/w hack), plastic looking buttons, crowded function keys, # key is too cornered, navi-wheel not sensitive.

NoContract = 698, Contract = 438. Still not perfect, but I’m not sure if there will be one. Anyway not sure if now’s the time, cos I can’t use it for the next month, so I’ll waste those “first few months free” gimmicks.

EDIT: There are people doing the unlock feature already (as I expected). I just hope its free or not too expensive. Or I might have to resort to doing it myself.

EDIT 2: I went to see the phone again. And searched the manual online. Couldn’t find any built-in method to change the keypad lock feature. Also saw the 2 colors – gray and white. White looks better, but makes the buttons look more plastic.

Weird songs

I have a song running in my head most of the time. The funny part is I usually don’t remember the title, usually only the tune, sometimes a few words of the lyrics. Today I was actually humming the chorus of 洋蔥 by 楊宗緯, and it so happened I caught the same song on my way home (which is how I learnt the title).

What’s weird? It’s the lyrics. and the next song happen to be 101封情书 by 欧得洋…

如果你愿意一层一层一层的剥开我的心…

变态 right… I’d be very painful.

写101封情书 寄到你未来的国度…

烧给你对吗?

New Changi race track

windy and I were talking about the new permanent race track to be built in Changi by 2011. They’ll be able to get their Grid Girls from the local area, who are always ready for a night race. Talk about job restructuring…
