Worrying

April 18, 2010 Leave a comment

I’m actually quite disturbed by the number of people reading this blog. Thou most  end up here because they did a search of blue screen of death or something along that line. I had an article a few months ( a year?) ago about my experience with the dreaded BSOD and somehow, people who do a search will be directed here. Astonishingly, i get about 200 over views a day thanks to that post. This blog will continue to draw that amount of views regardless if i update or not. In the past, i thought that the views are actually from people who really read what i type on this blog. Turns out it was because of the BOSD post that is attracting people.

The reason why i said i was disturbed about this is that because of the BOSD post, people who are total strangers are reading more about my personal life. Although EVERYONE should know that whatever you post on the interweb is public once your press the publish button, i just feel that i’m being too public about something personal. So in order to rectify this problem, i will be using another blog to post my personal stuff while keeping this blog to more public stuff. And since i don’t blog frequently, i’m sure you won’t feel the difference.

Cat Stevens- Father and Son

It’s not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
You’re still young, that’s your fault,
There’s so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that it’s not easy,
To be calm when you’ve found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you’ve got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.
It’s always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

It’s not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
You’re still young, that’s your fault,
There’s so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
if you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy.

All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
It’s hard, but it’s harder to ignore it.
If they were right, I’d agree, but it’s them you know not me.
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

9 Apr 2010 – 15 Apr 2010

Lately i have been thinking.

Did i forget something along the way?
Did i lost something without even realizing?
I knew something was missing, but i did not know what was it or where did i lose it.

So i started to look for something that i didn’t even know what it was.
I tried to recall the things that i would usually do in the past that i don’t do now.
I started to listen to my old CDs, play old games, watch old shows, tried to finish some of my old personal projects.
I even picked up my camera again.
But it was not the same, i knew i have yet to find it.
I still could not find what i had lost.

So i thought, maybe it was not the things that i used to do but the way i used to do things.
And soon it came to me that it was exactly it.

In the past, i could trust my instinct and follow it through.
Now i had to consult with others to see if my decision was correct.
And even after that, i would question it’s value.
I could not get over it, i knew i was not myself; that i’m not thinking by myself, for myself.
The me of yesterday would mock the me of today.

I don’t care when i lost it, i know i want to get it back.
I don’t know when, but i know this trip will bring me closer.
Wait for my return.

Microsoft Outlook 2010 beta

January 5, 2010 Leave a comment

is a buggy program.
i should have stuck with the 2007 version.

Some common problems that the 2010 Outlook will display are

  • Unable to start up on the first time, will crash and give error alert. 
    Solution: Start it the second time after the error alert, seems to work.
  • Cannot sync with some email accounts.
    Solution: Have yet to find one, use web browser interface to check mail?
  • Slow and laggy. Gives a buggy overall impression.
    Solution: I don’t think it’s my computer, Outlook 2007 was fine.
  • Crashes frequently. I’m trying to send a new email and it just crashes.
    Solution: Use web browser interface.
  • Crashes when i try to turn off the program. Lags entire computer.
    Solution: None. Don’t use this program?

Maybe the reason for the program to be so buggy is that it’s in the beta stage.
I feel that it has too many rough edges even for a beta program.
There is however, one good point that i have found for the Outlook 2010.
When i shutdown the computer without closing Outlook,
it will not force me to end task for Outlook as in 2007. It will just close.
When i open Outlook again, it will not say that Outlook did not shutdown properly.
No more data check. This is great as it allows for quicker shutdown.

The new user interface of Outlook 2010 will require some getting use to.
I personally prefer the 2007 layout as it seems more organized
and i can find everything that i want on the main tab.
