  • Who said reading comic is bad

    Admin Updated on July 7th, 2011 ( 1,143 views ) No comments

    To be honest, I am one of the manga addict. I have read tons of manga comic. And currently I am following around 10 active manga weekly. I am sure some will said reading comic is for kid, or that comic is not good compared to reading news paper of text books. The statement may be true or not true. Whether reading comic is good or bad fully depends on yourself.

    For a good example, you can read some blog posts by Sang Asura. He managed to convert his reading into a really good advice and related to the issues that are happening in the world. Once you read the posts, you will be amazed at how matured a fighting comic actually.

    If you said reading comic is not informative, you might be wrong. Most manga and comics usually use true facts in conveying certain issues. By reading comic and manga, you can actually learn about various places in the world and the culture of a places. The best example is Jojo Bizzare Adventure and Bloody Monday manga where you learn about cultures, histories, and science. It’s actually up to the reader to choose informative manga or useless one.

  • Transformers 3 review: Is it worth watching

    Admin Updated on July 6th, 2011 ( 2,884 views ) No comments

    The third sequel of the Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the best movie for me in 2011. Not only the storyline is good but the high end graphic make me feel sunk into the movie. Transformers Dark of the Moon comes with two version, normal and 3D version. Since this movie is full of actions and you will seen battle between robots, the 3D glass will give you full watching experience. Millions of dollar have been used to direct Transformers 3, so do not be too stingy to spend some money for the the 3D version. Furthermore, the movie is 2 hours and 30 minutes long. 3D movie usually has short time span. Watching 3D movie that is long than 2 hours should give you more than enough 3D experience.

    Now lets talk about the story. In Transformers 3, Megan Fox is replaced with new actress. Lucky she is hot too, so you will not feel the disappearance of Megan Fox. In the previous Transformers movies, the battle between Autobots and Decepticon are too wild. At certain times, you just don’t know which is Autobots and which is Decepticon. Compared to the previous movis, Dark of the Moon features proper battle scene. The best of all, you can see how humans actually playing parts in the battle between Autobots and Decepticon.

    USM FC terlalu sikap rendah diri

    PENGENDALI skuad Liga Perdana, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) FC, S Veloo, mengakui kekalahan mereka kepada Felda United, kelmarin, disebabkan sikap terlalu rendah diri dan takut kepada bayang-bayang sendiri. Bagi Veloo, anak buahnya terlalu risau apabila berhadapan dengan pasukan itu sehingga menyebabkan mereka kecundang 1-4, walapun bermain di gelanggang sendiri. Kekalahan itu cukup aib dan memaksa Veloo mencari formula segera bagi memantapkan pasukan menjelang pertemuan dengan Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS), Jumaat ini. “Jika sikap itu masih gagal dikikis, memang sukar untuk kami mencipta kemenangan,” katanya. Pada pertemuan dengan Felda, pemain tuan rumah seakan-akan hilang punca khususnya pada babak pertama apabila mudah diperkotak-katikkan oleh lawan.

  • Sysreset vs MIRC

    Admin Updated on July 4th, 2011 ( 3,138 views ) No comments

    Sysreset is just like MIRC. The only different is sysreset has better downloading feature compare to MIRC.

    With the normal MIRC, you need to do a lot of typing to CTCP a user to know which file is available for download. However, Sysreset has cover this weakness by having Server Tracker.

    sysreset tutorial

    Just as the picture above, the server tracker will show you all of available ‘sharer’ and you just need to click their name to enter their CTCP page. You can find the Server Tracker feature at the Sysreset tab.

    Another important thing, you should load the fserve_tracker.ini and fserve_browser.ini first at the addon manager (still at the Sysreset tab).

    That’s all. Enjoy your download.

  • Hide your identity while surfing by using proxy

    Admin Updated on July 4th, 2011 ( 5,534 views ) No comments

    In this article I will cover about HTTP proxy only. Axtually, HTTP proxy is an IP adress. If you use proxy while surfing the net, your IP adress that is sent to the web server is changed too. This is what hackers do to make sure their their location can’t be detect.

    HTTP Headers:

    What happens when you visit a website? Let say that you enter www.yahoo.com, these are several things that involve:

    (a) Domain name for Yahoo.com is changed to its server IP adress by using Domain Name System or DNS. (actually every website have their own IP adress such as 122.254.65.32 but visitors will feel difficulty to remember those number. So domain name is created in order to resolve the numbers into words) .

  • Larger computer memory doesn’t mean faster

    Admin Updated on July 3rd, 2011 ( 7,745 views ) 3 comments

    I have a friend who is quite rich. He likes to mod his pc and last week he just added another 2GB of computer ram into his motherboard making them 4GB total. He thinks that more speed means faster performance and that’s only half true.

    computer ram upgrade

    What is the function of computer ram?

    When we open a program, our cpu will use some memory that is what we called memory usage. You can view your memory usage by going to task manager (ctrl + alt + del).

    For me, I have 1GB of ram and only use xp. For my maximum usage, it only take around 750MB from my memory. So 250MB still free. So why do I need to bother to add my computer ram for larger memory?

    Then why my computer shows slow performance?

    I think you all need to understand that larger memory doesn’t mean faster performance however when your memory is not enough, let say you have 512MB memory but you use 650MB… from where the 138MB come from?
