What is DropBox?

Dropbox is a Web-based file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc. that uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization.

This service actually helps me, a LOT!

Fear. What is it really? – mirrors –

It’s disbelieving, really. Years ago I would finished reading a 20 page article in a few hours tops. Now I’m struggling to top even finish them in a day. What could be so different? I even finished that Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire in 2 or 3 days, with school!

Maybe I just out if practice for speedreading, or something… But my average speed for reading is way faster than most of them, I could easily understand what an article talking about while looking over someone shoulders and asking them to turn the pages after a few seconds scanning does have their moments. I learned to just patiently let them read the whole thing and wait.

…that reminds me. I often noticed that I have a terrible memory in remembering faces. People faces, human. But have absolutely no problem remembering how objects looked l like, and how easily I could “delete” faces from memory. personally, I think this is not a very good thing…

Maybe I’m just easily distracted?

I can’t even remember how my face looked like even. Dont mention mirrors, I really dislike the moment you step into an elevator with wall mirrors.

Do I really have this fear of mirror?

Go up to a mirror. Get close to it, and press your forehead against the glass. Stare into your own reflections eyes for as long as you can, without blinking. Focus, and concentrate. When you blink, do it all over again. Do this 3 or 4 times, and suddenly, when you are so focussed on not blinking, take a look.

I actually dont want to do this exercise. I have this sinking feeling that I won’t like what I see. I will ask, “Who is this creature staring back at me?”.

Oh gods, now I’m having suggestions that I feared cameras too.

Maybe it’s that. Fear if reflections, of life? Or fear of thyself? Myself?

There’s proof too! I rarely have images of faces, animals! But I have lenses on everything else. I can’t remember the l last time I actually, willingly, took my own picture. It’s a dreading feeling. Seeing yourself in the picture, but subconscious telling you that the one in the picture is not yourself, but something…. someone else.

Is there such thing as a fear of sleep? Of closing your eyes?

I did experience this, many times. Though I suspect movies are the main cause. When you close your eyes, images came. In mine, I saw various things, sometimes I even wonder that I’m dreaming, but I’m sure I did not….

Probably my imagination getting high, should’ve avoided that cake.

The effect of college assigments.

More spesifically in my case.

1. You will not have enough sleep
2. You will lost track of time
3. You will not have enough time to do anything else
4. You will suddenly lost the ability to multitask
5. You will suddey lost concentration
6. You will feel stressed
7. Your pc suddenly could not cope with you
8. You will feel tired
9. You will try to do your best
10. You will faint for a few day after it’s done

Ask though actually it’s not done, but atleast most of it were done.

Seantriana out, will now do networking for Unity3D.

Android – my first time

Whoa! This is, how do I say this. Easy! As in easy to
use! This is my first time changing my phone to something like this, honestly, it was becoming a pain to schedule my work with a Nokia N70. I love this technology!

Oh yeah! If I’m not mistaken, Unity3D can also support Android? Hah, I’ve been using Unity3D for how long and still confused by it. Time to a back to the basic classes.

Comic Fiesta is here!

Whoa! Need to clean the house!

The props are done!

How it looks like at my little laptop table

The living room after the rush

Prepare for the mighty glue gun, craft foam!

The spray paint, gunned on.

Tall!!! Whoa!

No progress shot much, since we did this one in a rush.

Looking foward to the next prop-making! XD

Sonic Unleashed, finally unlocked the Empire City day stage, act 1

Two words: EXTREME FAST!

I can’t hold my excitement while running through that stage! Even with this small pixelated TV I can see the HUGE area, the SPEED, and the RAILS! This stage need skills to manoeuvre around as death falls are frequent, one wrong step and you fall.

Below is my recording of Sonic Unleashed : Empire City Daytime Act 1 on PS3. Surprise, surprise! I got my first S for this stage!

Malaysia gets their own PlayStation Home

The moment Malaysian PlayStation users has been waiting for has finally come! At long last PlayStation Home has reached Malaysia!

After a few hours of exploring PSHome, I realized that Malaysian PSHome shares the same server as Thailand, Indonesia and Taiwan. Not so sure if there are others besides this… because I found a person from Puerto Rico during day 2 of PSHome Malaysia release.

My avatar posing with Vickie, the only NPC seen on Sodium One.

The feature I’m most excited for is the Sodium One MMO exclusive to PSHome users. Players are to control a hovercraft, destroy enemies, collect points, and trade them for items at the base.

Sodium One (abbreviated as S1) is a massively multiplayer online game based in and exclusive to the PS3’s online community-based social gaming network PlayStation ® Home. Sodium One is a combination of a full tank shooting game, called “Sodium One Salt Shooter”, and other associated mini-games that starts somewhere in the Nevada desert. The first five levels of Sodium One Salt Shooter are free. The full game of Sodium One Salt Shooter can be obtained by purchasing the Sodium Pilot Outfit from the Commerce Point, which is a shop with associated Sodium One products and other content from Outso and Lockwood Publishing.

VICKIE is the SodiumA.I. Information Android that tracks all of the users information such as completed objectives. This is where users can find out what objectives need be completed and redeem their Sodium Credits. The objectives are completed through mini-games including Sodium One Salt Shooter Tank Training, Scorpion Stomp, Desert Quench, and the Sodium One Salt Shooter Game. Sodium One Salt Shooter Tank Training is a training mission of the full game where users can train and try to improve their rankings.

Sodium One Salt Shooter machine

The Sodium One Salt Shooter Game is the full version of the Sodium One Salt Shooter Tank Trainer that’s in the Sodium Hub, however, without purchasing the pilot jacket, users can only access the first five levels. The Sodium One Salt Shooter Tank is upgradeable with different weapons, thrusters, afterburners, and other upgrades. The upgrades are obtained through destroying enemy tanks in each level with a boss at the end. Users can also unlock other Home rewards for their Home avatar in the full game of Sodium One Salt Shooter.

My avatar as Lightning from FFXII

Most of the free time in PSHome consists of my avatar running around making fun/friends of people. The appearance of girl avatar are few, to my surprise. Most are boys avatar, and since Malaysia PSHome just launched, most of the avatars wear casual freebies items. And since I’m officially a member of Malaysia region since July 2010, I got the “I love Malaysia” virtual T-shirt for use for my avatar in home, although seldom using them due to more interesting clothes available,  resulting to changing avatar appearance every 30 minutes or so, until I’m stuck with Lightning (from Final Fantasy 13).

But one of the most annoyance that keeps happening to me is the random disconnection from Home that only happens at daytime. The connection to PSHome was smooth during 11 am to 6 am, but it starts disconnecting in daytime until 11pm or so. This might be a PS3 problem, but who knows? I cant really exploit PS3 like I did with a PC. It’s surprisingly fragile and I could’t afford the risk.
