Finally, I’ve finished the exams for this semester….well…not really. I just found out something really shocking at the end of the second last paper (I had 6 papers this sem). It was miserable. Heh.
But looking back at the progression of the exam I realized that it reminded me of an RPG style scenario typically found in most Role Playing Games that I used to play. Therefore, I have taken the liberty in describing my experience in such a manner as if you are playing a RPG which can be seen/read below.
“…It was time at last. After level grinding for what can be seen as an eternity(4months) and multiple side quest later(in which some side quest were basically abandon or failed completely) Ihad finally reached the front gates of the ultimate FREAKING lair of the FINAL boss of the game. Seeing how this was not a typical Square-Enix RPG you are to fight and end the game all by yourself. So basically helping your other party members to level up and get the best equipment of the game is a waste of time.
So in a typical fashion you go pass the short dungeon before reaching every boss fight. So last minute leveling are definitely a must(every night). The first boss was scary, at first I thought that I did not bring enough items, leveled enough or even used the best weapon and armour I can find but then again surprisingly the battle was quite okay. Second boss was a bit tricky. Barely defeated that one. 3rd one wasn’t a problem. 4th one was a bitch and it said “THIS IS NOT THE END!!!” when it went down. Typical boss death quote I tell you but I do hope it stays just that.
Anyways, after the 4 previous bosses are what we usually call in RPG’s as sub-bosses who appears before the main boss fight to soften you up before the final battle. The fifth one? The ultimate uber boss that you fight of the entire game. Over 9,000,000,000 HP, high stats and also multiple status and element resistant. It was INSANELY HARD. Really, it was. I died. The only action I was able to do was to select the ‘attack’ command once and I got stepped on for a whopping 99999 damage. WOOT! My damage inflicted? Well…1…maybe. And I suspected it was pitying me for that. I could have sworn i saw it shed a small tear.
Interestingly, I was allowed to sit for a battle with the six boss which was in fact can be considered a mini boss fight. Any boss fights or battles after the final boss are mainly just for show in RPG’s cause you’ll definitely win. End of game.”
Anyways, it seems I have to fight the final boss again from the last save point to unlock the ultimate game achivement of being able to proceed to the next level. Not to mention, apparently all this while I have been fighting the wrong 3rd boss. It seems to be an optional boss that I was not suppose to fight and now I have to refight the REAL 3rd boss in order to get the FULL TRUE ENDNIG. Heh. They both look and named almost the same. It was confusing. I blame the game maker for making such confusing menus.
Sigh. I hate my life…and here I thought I had it all figured out and yes my words are cryptic.

This is not a an April’s fool joke.
Microsoft is researching on Cibais Cibai which is an abstract interpretation-based static analyzer for modular analysis and verification of Java classes. Whatever the hell that means. But still, I think someone is gonna get his ass kicked for his amazing naming sense. But maybe who can blame the poor chap, maybe he’s not Malaysian and he didn’t know what it means over here. That goes to show that Microsoft needs to hire more Malaysians (namely me) to name their research projects so cases like lanjiao, pundek and niaseng will not come to bare… or maybe he really IS a Malaysian trying to get some lols.
You can read more on Microsoft’s Cibai at: http://research.microsoft.com/apps/pubs/default.aspx?id=78035.
So what’s next? A Microsoft certified cibai?

DAMN YOU GLOBAL WARMING!!!!
Its hot. I’m sweaty. Can’t get a proper night’s rest thanks to the heat. If those who experience summer says that their summer is hot wait till you come over here I say. Hot is not hot till you’ve live in the freaking equator or the middle east(desert area). Not to mention the lack of rain(main cause) is not helping at all. I blame pollution, green house effect and global warming. Having a table fan blowing at you at max speed does not help in this situation. Trust me.
So in light of this I have come up with a few ways to cool oneself down in a situation like this.

I dunno. It felt strange during the…stuff . I tried to be myself but it was hard. Very hard. I used to have no problems mixing and mingling with people but yesterday it felt really strange and weird. I felt like I was being ignored. Reasons? No idea.
Imagine yourself walking into a group of people who are cheerfully talking and when you stand next to them one of them just gives you the evil eye and look away while everyone suddenly becomes silent. There were some misunderstandings between me and another friend due to the actions of a brainless ingrate who shook the friendship that we had but luckily it was later cleared up. I hate it when there’s tension between friends. Its just plain ridiculous when something so insignificant can destroy something so precious as friendship. But still, I can’t believe that shit can happen even when you’re not even taking a dump.
It’s like I’m just doing my own things happily doing what I have to do like every other person while someone takes a gun and shoot you. Shit like that. The result is I personally feel like I’m an evil villain that everyone is trying to avoid and vilify. The culprit behaves like everything is alright. But can you say that its alrite to detonate a nuclear warhead in the middle of a metropolis points a finger and say that the guy sleeping downstairs pushed the button and then acts like nothing is wrong while the whole time his actions are being broadcast live on TV? Shameful. Totally shameful. If I have done something stupid and wrong and you tell me off about it I will accept and apologize cause its the right thing to do and I’m not perfect. It takes a man to admit he is wrong but it takes a coward no effort to do anything.
I may forgive but I’ll never forget. I just need my life to get on track again after having my life being derailed by something that is NOT cause by me this time. I have priorites, responsibilities and bigger fish to fry.
well…its either that or maybe they’re just tired and I’m delving into this too much because of a lack of sleep myself(it tends to happens…alot).
