Cleaver idea.

Though there's no test to take,

I never thought I’d ever have another reading assignment after college.

328 pages credit card payment gateway API specifications and how-to all written in Business Japanese.
I don’t know if I can handle the business Japanese part.

Because god didn't go to medical school.

Pure stupidity killed their daughter.

I admit it, I'm a package whore.

A new line of long-lasting intense flavoured mints – Fragre from Japan.
I don’t care what these smell or taste like, I love their package.
Available in 3 flavours – Rose Mint, Blue mint and Tropical Mint.

and I love Dolce de leche latte from Starbucks.

Photoshop Express – online for free!

GWAD, I WAS FRIGGING B-U-S-Y!!!!

Anyways…

Beta version of Adobe Photoshop Express – an online photo editing application – is out and available for public.
I’ve just done the test drive, and I’m pretty impressed! The only thing you need is a fast internet connection and bandwidth – this is definitely what Australia needs to work on… HARDER. Honestly it just sucks big time here.

So, like, what, does this replace the Adobe Photoshop Elements eventually? (Cuz the original rumor was that Adobe is working on Adobe AIR version of Photoshop Elements.)

Go check it out!

This is a cool idea. I might just do the same and disappear…

Tech: Let me get this straight, you are saying…

Folding@home is a distributed computer project to research protein folding.
According to their statistics, PS3 is much more powerful and efficient than any other platforms for the research.

Apparently, total TFLOPS (tera-flops = 1 trillion flops) of PS3 (currently 1078) is consisted of 35,704 PS3s wheres only 180 TFLOPS is possible with 188,869 windows machines. 1078 TELOPS is actually 30 times powerful/faster than JAMSTEC’s The Earth Simulator, 3 times faster than the super computer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Funny thing is, PS3 was made for games. Ironic.
* I’m actually not sure if TELOPS can be used to measure the speed of computing or not. ;p

Magic Sand – Hydrophobic Sand

It must be a great invention, but what would that be used for…??? Oh, ah, I see.

HDD price has been dramatically slashed.
Is that because of recent low American dollar rate?
Internal 500GB HDD has been marked down at AUD$80-ish. WHA WHA WHAAAT??
