Having a laptop as desktop replacement is pretty common especially for a college student. I open my laptop for around 10 hours a day thus proper cooling is needed if I don’t want my laptop to undergo severe “health” issue.

Power on your laptop for a long time means your processor and on-board graphic tends to be hot. Hotness more than 50 degree can make your laptop performance going down. Besides, you just reduce the lifespan of the laptop processor, hard disk, and especially battery. For further elaboration, you can spend some time to read how temperature can affect a lithium ion battery life.

Actually I already have a free gift notebook cooler that I got when buying my notebook. But somehow the performance is quite terrible. Besides, the bottom of the notebook cooler is not cover thus means I cannot use it at surface that is not flat such as bed.

Then I came across a notebook cooler created by Cooler Master. Though the price is a bit expensive, but it suit my needs. Thus I present Notepal U2 by Cooler Master.

toner cartridges

Laser printing is the absolute way if you want to do professional printing either at home or corporate use. Despite the pro, laser printing user will face difficulty in replacing empty laser toner cartridges because there are not many computer shops that sell toner cartridges.

Even if they do, you might have problem to find the suitable laser toner cartridges for your laser printing machine. Because of the difficulties, some take initiative to replace the old printing machine with the new one without knowing that the default ink in the new machine is usually not more than 1/3. This is a total loss.

Booking movie ticket is essential if you want to watch a new released movie. Reservation can be done via phone but it is not reliable enough as I have bad experience last time. Compare to phone reservation, booking online is a better choice. You just need to register as a member of GSC website and then you can do reservation in a few clicks.

Reservation chair at GSC is fixed, that means you cannot choose the seats. If you don’t claim the reserve seats before 45 minutes till screening, GSC will cancel the reservation and open the seats for sell.

If you want to choose seats, you can do it by buying GSC ticket online. Credit card will do the job but you can also use Maybank2u online banking as alternative method.

Buying GSC ticket via online is called E-Payment Ticketing. You just need to choose Showtimes & Ticketing and click the E-Payment Ticketing.

Choose your desired Cinema, Date, Movie, and Screening Time.

Then, choose the number of tickets that you want to buy. RM0.50 processing fee per ticket will be charged (sucker…). If you watch 3D, another RM5 will be charged per ticket (for 3d glasses rental). I wonder whether you can avoid the charge by bringing your own 3d glass.

Another supernatural tv series released just like heroes and supernatural. The only different is it broadcast from Canada showcase tv while another two from US. Lost girl is about a girl Bo plays by Anna Silk who has been abandoned by her parents since she was born due to some threat by enemy. She was raised up by adopted family and didn’t know that she has a unique power that somehow will cause a serious damage to human body or even fatalism. It’s like seducing human and sucks the human energy.

After murder a man in an elevator she was kidnapped by a ‘fae’ the underworld group which divided into two distinct groups (light and dark). The light group takes her to ask who she was and what kind of her clan. During the interrogation process the leader of the light group strongly believe that she doesn’t know anything about the ‘fae’ world. After being checked, she was told that she might come from succubus clan. And as a tradition in fae world, she has to choose which side that she likes to join. No registration fee at all…hahahaha… At last, she choose to be with human and start to ask about herself and try to find the root of her family, who is her father, her mother and so many things.

By now, two episodes were aired and I found it really stunning. Even from the first episode I’ve decided to follow this series to the end. Enough for now and I leave you with the Lost Girl trailer (showcase promo) so you can judge it by yourself. Do comment me to ask for the lost girl free download link,ok..??

You might not having any performance issue if you only use your PC for simple tasks like accessing the internet, watch movie, or playing mini games. Somehow, you might face some lagging if you want to do heavy task such as playing online games, playing high end games, video editing, or 3D rendering.

Upgrade your hardware

If you dedicated to those heavy tasks (and experience lagging), the best option is to replace your hardware with better one. You can upgrade your processor and added RAM with bigger speed and size so that your PC can process more data in fast speed.

Although upgrading hardware can solve performance issue, money issue shouldn’t be taken lightly. Hardware is quite expensive and I am sure you don’t want to spend hard earned money just for running certain task that you rarely do. In this case, operating system tweaking is the best choice.

Hey, can you tell me how to write a resume? What font should I used? Should I used small or capital letter?

So, that are the questions that will come from someone who knows nothing about resume. Instead of writing resume by your own, you can just download the softcopy in the internet. As for me, I used JobStreet to come up with a resume.

After registering with JobStreet, you will see an option to create resume. Then you just need to fill a form, insert your picture, and submit. And now your data will be available to employers. After completing your resume, you will see download option for the resume. The downloaded resume can be opened in Microsoft Word in case you want to edit something. That’s super easy isn’t it? You got a fully format resume just by completing a form.

Another thing that need to be keep in mind is that you don’t need to be a fresh graduate to register JobStreet. JobStreet offers opportunities for part time and internship. On going college or university students can maximized this feature to register and grab any job opportunity during semester break.

There is also English assessment and practices that you can take in JobStreet. It’s good idea to check how good you do in English by taking the assessment. The assessment result should gave employers a good view about your English skill.

So, this is mine. Not so good, but not too bad.

Just bought a new computer or need to reinstall software due to hard disk format? Actually Windows 7 already provided some programs after clean install but somehow there are still some softwares that are not included. Here are some essential software that I always make sure to keep it inside my computer.

Imaging program

  • ImgBurn (I use this to convert files to ISO format)
  • Magic Disc (I use this to mount ISO format)

Compressor or archive

  • WinRar (can open most type of compressed file)

Video Player

  • KMP player is my choice as it has good supports for subtitle
  • VLC is the way to go if you want to do some video streaming

Word Processor

  • Microsoft Office obviously

Internet Browser

  • Opera and Mozilla (Opera good for research while Mozilla is my choice for blog posting)

Chatting

  • Yahoo Messenger

PDF Reader

  • Foxit Reader as it is small in size but fast in speed

Want to go for a holiday trip but don’t know where to go? Then try to consider Cameron Highland as choice. Located in the center of Peninsular Malaysia, I doubt anyone will have any trouble going to Cameron Highland.

Cameron Highland is a amazing destination and worth to be visited, but if you really want to go here please take a few advices from me as consideration. Firstly bring some panadols along the way because the roads are really challenging. If you have a hard time with roller coaster, then extra plastic bags should be brought in case you need to do some “dirty” thing.

Second advice, don’t be fool by your heart. Once you get there, the first thing that comes to your mind should be Strawberry. You might find that the price at entrance is reasonable but I am sure you will get better prices if wait until you reach the correct place (night market).

Nowadays, almost all new laptop use lithium battery compare to decade ago where nickel battery widely used. Lithium battery is a lot better than nickel since lithium battery doesn’t suffer from memory effect. Do you remember that one good way to prolong mobile phone battery is by only charging the battery once the battery power nearly empty. The advice is due to most old mobile phones use use nickel battery that suffer memory effect. Let say that you charge your mobile phone although 40% battery still left. If the mobile phone use nickel battery, then you might having trouble as the nickel battery will forget that there is already 40 % charge left once charging start. That means, your mobile phone will show empty sign once you have use all of the 60 percent charge.

lithium-ion-battery

This is totally different if your mobile phone or laptop use lithium battery. Since Lithium ion battery doesn’t have memory effect, it doesn’t matter anymore when you charge your laptop battery. Besides free from memory effect, lithium ion battery knows when to stop charging once it is already full of charge. This avoid overcharging from happening in laptop battery.

If overcharging never happen, then why some people recommend to keep laptop battery away if they want to use plug-in power? That is nothing related to overcharging but due to heating problem. Lithium battery can be worn out faster if it is left in hot environment. Thus leaving the battery in the laptop while using plug-in power is not a good idea for someone who make laptop as desktop replacement as the battery can become hot easily.

A good practice to keep laptop battery is by putting it inside plastic bag and left it in a cold and dry environment. Once in a month, put back the battery inside laptop and use it so that the battery will always perform at it best.
