Random Notes 6

Posted by : foongpc | Wednesday, March 3, 2010 | Published in


1. I am blogging using another computer. My laptop is down with H10N10 virus (haha!) and still in intensive care. Poor me!

2. Sorry no photos today. All my recent photos are inside my "sick" laptop! I have some in my pendrive, but I am too lazy to upload them onto this blog.

3. I am feeling a bit frustrated because it's not like I did not have a paid version of AVG anti-virus program! I guess without AVG, my laptop would be breaking down more often!

4. Now there's something wrong with Blogger as well!! When I click on the "edit posts" button or "return to list of posts" button, an error message comes out. This is frustrating indeed!!!

5. I have a ghost story to tell you all, and it's been haunting me, but it will have to wait cos I am just too busy to write it all down.

6. Is Whitney Houston on drugs again? Gosh, she's just wasting away all her talents!

7. It's been really, really hot these days! I have been sleeping completely naked for the past few nights and with both the fan and air conditioner switched on! Have you tried sleeping completely naked? It's really nice! : )

8. Do you all still read the newspapers? I realized that since I started blogging, I have not been touching the newspapers as often as I used to.

9. I had recently composed a few songs on the piano. I want to record them and post them on my blog, but with Imeem taken over by MySpace, I just do not know where to save my recordings so that I can embed them on my blog. Apart from YouTube, any other good recommendations?

10. I am looking forward to a potluck party this weekend. I will be bringing loads of prawn crackers I bought from Kuala Selangor and of course, my empty stomach too! Haha!

11. Sorry I am not able to drop by most of your blogs. But once I get my precious laptop back, I will definitely visit all of you again! I miss reading all your blogs! So they better be good! haha, just kidding : )

    My laptop was infected a few years ago after opening an infected email attachment. I lost so much photos and videos, passwords, usernames, and just about everything. Ever since then, I learned not to store everything in one drive or computer. Hope your tech person can recover everything and fix your laptop :)

    March 3, 2010 at 1:36 PM
  8. CheaHSan said...

    Blogger giving problem? That's always a technical glitch on and off. No latest news of Houston woh if its a yes then truly a talent wasted. Sleep naked is nice but make sure where you hang your clothes in case there is a fire then you have to decide to save your skin or your face..lol

    March 3, 2010 at 1:41 PM
  9. CheaHSan said...

    Me no get you regarding 'Imeem' and MySpace. Wow composed a few songs cant wait to hear them. Sorry dunno other source for you to embed. Potluck with prawn crackers sounds cracking good. Have a great time this weekend then. Wish your lappie a speedy recovery.

    You seem to have a close affininity with ghosts. Stay away from me! =p

    I don't sleep naked, makes me feel very vulnerable and cold.

    Train rides to and from work is a good time to read newspapers. Reading keeps me senile.

    Why don't u try Avira?

    You should backup your photos in an external HD or at least DVD...

    I still read newspaper, often in kopitiam or McD. But in the first few semester of my MBA study, I didn't have enough time to read newspaper.

    March 3, 2010 at 4:16 PM
  26. Merryn said...

    Sleep naked? Foong, if I do that, the 'heat' will definitely be ON higher! so no matter what, must cover up a bit :P

  39. HappySurfer said...

    Foong, sorry to hear that your lappie is down. You know what? Laptops are very fragile "creatures" and are very vulnerable to vibrations. Someone I know who works in a technology company (MNC manufacturing) advises that they not be moved about when it's switched on. Best to log it off before you move it about, eg., hopping from one conference room to the next. Shelf-life is very short, maybe six months. Perhaps, you need a new unit. Get a Mac this time. The new version is cheaper currently.

    March 4, 2010 at 11:25 AM
  40. HappySurfer said...

    When your computer is with virus, Blogger acts funnily too but I don't think Blogger is down though I did notice some changes in the posting attributes. Takes some getting used to.

    March 4, 2010 at 11:28 AM
  41. HappySurfer said...

    I read that Whitney Houston is smoking heavily and had to stop a few times in between her performance in her concert in Australia. One stop was for as long as 13 minutes! I agree, wasted talent. So sad.

    March 4, 2010 at 11:32 AM
  42. HappySurfer said...

    Isn't your room aircond that you had to sleep in the nude? Yes, sleeping like that can make one sleep better - like a baby. haha..

    March 4, 2010 at 11:36 AM
  43. HappySurfer said...

    Enjoy your potluck party this weekend.

    Looking forward to reading your ghost story.

    Hope you find your new Imeem..

    Whatever, have yourself a really nice day, Foong..

    March 4, 2010 at 11:40 AM
  44. HappySurfer said...

    I think Streamyx is also sick today..

  45. jam said...

    AVG no use. Go to get Nod32!

    March 4, 2010 at 3:55 PM
  46. jam said...

    And don't surf porn cause those sites are the dirtiest, ie contain most virus.

    March 4, 2010 at 3:56 PM
  47. jam said...

    Not sure about Blogger. Perhaps you can find a plugin to embed the track into your blog. Awaiting that!

    March 4, 2010 at 3:57 PM
  48. Tekkaus said...

    Wow...new virus? H10N10 and now your laptop is in intensive care? Poor you? Why not the laptop?

    March 4, 2010 at 4:50 PM
  49. Tekkaus said...

    Never mind, sometimes wordy post is also good bro. And yeah...we know you are lazy to copy the pictures from your pendrive. :p

    March 4, 2010 at 4:51 PM
  50. Tekkaus said...

    So you are using the FREE version of AVG which is lousy? :p Me too.

    March 4, 2010 at 4:53 PM
  51. Tekkaus said...

    Sometimes Blogger is not even stable too. For example when I tried to comment on other blogspot blogs, I kept on getting all the stupid error messages. :/

    March 4, 2010 at 4:55 PM
  52. Tekkaus said...

    Really? Tell us the ghost story before you have forgotten it bro. Wow...sounds like a very scary ghost story. Hurry up! Write that haunting post for us.

    March 4, 2010 at 4:56 PM
  53. Tekkaus said...

    Yeah. She is a goner. Goodbye Witney. What d waste. :p

    War...2 fans plus 1 air-conditioner and you are naked? Goodness...why do you feel so hot ar?

    March 4, 2010 at 4:59 PM
  54. Tekkaus said...

    Yes, of course I still read newspaper bro. Because not everything on the net is reliable. :p

    Wow! Really? When you wanna share with us your songs? War...very talented aye.

    March 4, 2010 at 5:00 PM
  55. Tekkaus said...

    No wonder you didn't drop by at our blogs already lar. :p Come back bro.

    rose belle, I hope so too! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:25 PM
  58. foongpc said...

    cheahs@n, so you suggest I change anti virus program? Hmmm, I'm not sure if it's AVG's fault now.

    If there's a fire, I'll save my skin! Haha

    Not sure where to store my recorded songs now that Imeem no longer around!

    March 5, 2010 at 4:28 PM
  59. foongpc said...

    shingo T, no lah, I don't have close affinity with ghosts! Btw, this ghost story is told to me by a friend, nothing to do with me!

    Why you feel vulnerable sleeping naked? It's a nice feeling! Haha!

    March 5, 2010 at 4:29 PM
  60. foongpc said...

    CH Voon, too late, already transferred to your laptop, haha!

    So Google Chrome also have its own set of problems?

    I don't create ghost stories, I just tell from experience and from other people's experiences. Will go read the ghost story at your blog soon! : )

    So you don't sleep completely naked? Why not?

    You mean newspaper only 10% true information? Got so low percentage or not? Haha!

    My laptop is HP brand, and I'm going to get a Mac next! But not so soon since it's still under warranty : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:34 PM
  61. foongpc said...

    donna, hi do come back when you are free! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:35 PM
  62. foongpc said...

    manglish, this ghost story is heard from friend, not my own experience. Will post it soon : )

    Still read newspaper? Enjoy your newspaper reading! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:37 PM
  63. foongpc said...

    june, will post it soon : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:40 PM
  65. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, what did I surf? Must be spending too much time at your blog! You spread the virus to me!! Can I claim compensation? Haha!

    Eh, what is so disturbing about me sleeping naked? It's a nice image OK, haha!!

    March 5, 2010 at 4:43 PM
  66. foongpc said...

    che-cheh, sure Avira is better? But I am not using the free version of AVG. I'm using the paid version!

    March 5, 2010 at 4:44 PM
  67. foongpc said...

    khengsiong, I did back up my photos but too lazy to back up the most recent ones, haha!

    So you still read newspaper? Good for you! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:45 PM
  68. foongpc said...

    merryn, you also blog too much that's why seldom read papers! Gimme 5! Haha!

    You sleep naked, the heat will be on higher? Higher for who? Hehe.

    Terrrified or not, I'm gonna tell my ghost stories. haha!

    March 5, 2010 at 4:46 PM
  69. foongpc said...

    mNhl, poor laptop? It should be poor me! Yes, potluck party is great - looking forward to that! : )

  70. foongpc said...

    ladyviral, yeah again! Sigh...

    March 5, 2010 at 4:48 PM
  71. foongpc said...

    medie007, I'm going to stop visiting your blog already. You know why? Becoz you said I am a cheapo when I am not! Pls read Random Notes #3 again! And wear your spectacles or get a magnifying glass whichever suits you : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:50 PM
  72. foongpc said...

    wenn, me too! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:51 PM
  73. foongpc said...

    bananaz, Kapersky good? Free or paid version?

    You sleep in your birthday suit for many years already? Hahaha!

    Potluck yes, potbelly no! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:53 PM
  74. foongpc said...

    superman, sorry your streamyx down! In fact, my streamyx here very slow! Frustrating!! Yeah, I also hope to get back my laptop fast, thanks! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:54 PM
  75. foongpc said...

    day-dreamer, thanks! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:54 PM
  76. foongpc said...

    reanaclaire, definitely the worst nightmare for any passionate blogger! Haha : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:55 PM
  77. foongpc said...

    pete, very the takut now cos H1N1 mutated to H10N10 and can infect laptops! Hahaha!!

    March 5, 2010 at 4:56 PM
  78. foongpc said...

    rita, thanks!! How come nobody said poor foongpc? Instead everyone says poor laptop? What's so poor about my laptop?! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:57 PM
  79. foongpc said...

    xin, thanks for praying for my laptop's recovery! God knows it needs it! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 4:57 PM
  80. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, thanks for the advice. I seldom move my laptop around. Yes, I will definitely get a Mac next time! How much is it by the way?

    What? 6 months shelf life only? Mine is 18 months already and still under warranty for 3 years. So I will still hold on to it until the warranty's over : )

    Blogger is acting funny but I am using another computer to access it so it has nothing to do with viruses.

    Yeah, if I attended that Whitney Houston's concert, I would complain too!

    Sleeping in the nude is very comfy but I think if you cover yourself with a blanket with the air con and fan switched on, it's very very comfortable, yes?

    Thanks, I hope to find an alternative to Imeem and yes, will be posting about the ghost story soon! You have a nice day too! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 5:03 PM
  81. foongpc said...

    jam, AVG no use? Who said? It's being used by lots of people! Nod32? Good or not?

    Don't worry I seldom surf porn. Haha!

    March 5, 2010 at 5:05 PM
  82. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, of course poor me! How can it be poor laptop? Haha!

    No I'm using the PAID version of AVG. Maybe you want to upgrade to the paid version? It's not that expensive and you get better protection. Of course there's no such thing as foolproof protection : )

    Will post the ghost story soon! : )

    Why I feel so hot? I don't know. maybe the weather is really hot these days? : )

    Well, I guess not everything on the papers as well as the net is reliable these days.

    Will be dropping by your blog soon. Sorry about not visiting! : )

    March 5, 2010 at 5:09 PM
  83. foongpc said...

    ayie, yeah, again! Sigh...

    4. yeah it happen sometimes. grrrr

    5. what? another one? be sure to inform us the date okay so i can bring my rosary and bible while reading it

    6. So disappointed with Whitney. I heard she had a concert and failed to reach the high note of the song "i will always love you".

    7.Its summer hehe thats why. Yup actually i sleep barely naked cuz i only wear my undies.. haha

    8.i'm not into reading newspapers... if i do, i will go directly to the entertainment page or the comics page haha.. I felt bored reading long articles

    9.wow you play piano? tht's interesting.. piano is the only instrument that i'm dying to learn with. Unfortunately, its not for me haha.

    10.whats potluck party?

    although there are no pics, but you still managed to blog! haha

    March 8, 2010 at 11:18 AM
  87. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, LOL to 1-2! I stayed far far away from my laptop during the infection period! : )

    Macafee is good? I'm actually using the paid version of AVG, not the free one!

    So the Blogger problem happens to you too? How do you solve it? Or does it solve by itself?

    Haha! Really need to get ready your rosary and bible while reading my ghost stories? That's extreme! LOL!

    Yeah, me disappointed with Whitney too. I hope she'll do something about it!

    Oh! Only wear your undies while sleeping? Cool! Try take the undies off as well! It'll be cooler! Haha!

    Only read comics and entertainment page in newspaper? Better buy a comic book and entertainment magazine to read then! LOL!

    Why is piano not for you? Have you tried playing on it?

    What? You don't know what is a potluck party? Hmm, go google it, haha! Ok, OK, a potluck party is a party where everyone brings some food instead of relying totally on the host to provide all the food.

    Don't have to be sorry for missing my posts. You are not expected to read ALL my posts. I mean, who in the world have so much time to read every post, every blog and everything that is posted online? Haha! I just appreciate you take your time to drop by, so thanks! : )
