Ian’s O Level Results

Wow. I didn’t do too bad. I got 13 points. I even had A1 for SS/GEOG and pure History. And by the grace of God I got A2 for PHY/CHEM. Thanks be to God, considering the physics paper was terrible. Oh well. I’m thankful for what I have. Well, hope those who didn’t do too well don’t take it too badly. It’s not the end, only the beginning.

Format C:\

I formatted my C: drive today and reinstalled my windows XP. Everything is smooth running now. It all began when I tried to download a crack to let me play for Starcraft. Before I could begin the download, the computer hanged on me. When I restarted the computer, everything was shitty. Directories couldnt be opened, unless I used the internet explorer. It took ages to delete files. Keyboard shortcuts didn’t work. And yesterday the sound card failed and the antivirus became screwy. And other problems too…But to keep a long story short, I decided to reinstall windows XP. That’s it. No more cracks from unreliable sources. So I backed up my pictures and documents onto diskettes and putting them up on the net. Couldn’t access my Lycos Angelfire account so I tried Yahoo Geocities. They didn’t allow .RAR files, so I had to use .ZIP instead. As for Forunecity, it was totally hopeless. So I used this Prohosting provider. It gave me enough space and allowed .RAR files. Goody. I managed to recover most of the files, but 5 .RAR archives gave a “disk error – cyclic redundancy check”. Damn. Now I have to find the pictures again. At least everything else is working. Great.

Polytechnic Open Houses

Went to Ngee Ann Poly’s open house on Friday. It’s damn big. Biotech courses look good but i’m not into engineering. Went to look at the business school. The people look very sian sian. Spent the rest of the afternoon in the library. Their library is damn big man!!! I like it!! Went to SP’s open house on Saturday. The people there are more serious than in Ngee Ann. Went for the talk there with my mother. Sianz. Now I don’t know which course to take. *Yawn…

The Last Samurai

Went to see Last Samurai with my brother and Joshua yesterday. It’s a good show. Lol, I was reading the newspapers today. There was this guy who was filiming a documentary about eating macdonalds for a month. It’s a riot. His health was totalled by all those hamburgers. This is a PR disaster for the evil empire Macdonalds. Anyway, I hope Alfred is feeling better now about his Grandpa. God rest his soul. Angela’s father had a successful operation. What a relief. I’m sleeping now. Good night.
