My One and Only

23 July 2010

It's been some time since there has been any stuff in the My Love Stories section.

So...here's just a little post about my caring, kind, polite, beautiful, precious, selfless, comforting, soothing, calming, understanding, helpful, loving and funny to-be wife of mine named Lim Ee Ching. She has offered, still offering and will be offering her utmost support in everything I do. There are many things to say about our love story, but here it is again, a little gist of it.

See, this is my girlfriend. And she'll forever be my girlfriend. Some of my friends just say that... she's lucky to have me. But let's not be judgemental to say it like that before we even really know who she is. In truth, I am the lucky one to have her...or we're both lucky.

I will ignore and delete all bad comments regarding her, and I'll do things to make sure that our relationship is strong and ongoing. Now, I won't care what you all think or say. She'll be my one and only from now till the end. I'll accept whoever she is and whatever she does. To those bastards who wanna tackle my beloved angel, I hav but 3 wordz. You go dai.

Please do not, in any way, jeopardize the wellness of our relationship. Thanks a lot.

Things We Done In a While
Since no one's heard of us in a while...here's what we've done for this year so far.

The start of 2010 marks the end of my SPM year, and the start of my deardear's SPM year. In January, I was in NS and my wife was extremely worried about me. She misses me so badly as she could only call me every weekend. I couldn't take it as well, as my heart was slowly crushed and devoured by the pain of missing her and my family. Luckily, I couldn't take the food there as well, and gone through all the POINTLESS sufferings that NS gave me, and finally got out. Anyways, let's take a look at the activities we are STILL doing together since 2009.

- Playing MSN games.
- Talking on the phone for more than 1 hour.
- Sweetztalkingz.
- E-mailing.
- Sending FB posts.
- Recalling and talking about our past love stories.
- Arguing
- Sending mails.
- Taking pics for each other.
- Promise we won't leave each other and say "I promise" over and over again.

...so on so forth. So during February, I broke this glass of love pills which was given to me as a present by my beloved. The pills were blue/white in colour and they can be opened to put a small message inside. It was bought from Kuantan and it meant a lot to me. Both of us were very upset about it. I, myself, was upset over myself too! :(

Nevertheless! I collected all the 60 pills and placed it in a container.

Alright, enough of my butterfingers incident. Now we move on to March 2010 which was my wife's birthday and our 2 year anniversary! Just a blink-of-an-eye and we've already loved each other for 2 years. That's pretty quick.

I sent her a love letter, a pink one in fact, as she also sent a pink one last year. Inside the letter, I've put in my photostated IC, *lovey-dovey essays*, lovey-dovey cards, self-made bookmark, *secret*, one of the love pill with a lovey-dovey message inside, and many others ALLLLLL with glittery stickers on them! :)

And you know, I placed this small baby bottle keychain inside the mail, and when she received it, it was lost!! There seems to be a hole in the envelope. *sigh*

After that, I enrolled in INTI College Subang Jaya. I gave my college account's password, serial no. and the sort to my girlfriend so that she could take a look at my stuff anytime she wants. And for all this time, she spent lots of money to topup her phone in order to call me.

She has been paying a huge amount of money I can tell. Too much indeed.

From April-July, I couldn't do much for her because we were still very far apart. We kept on making promises that we will see each other the next year. But waiting for a single day to pass is like waiting for a month to pass. The pain gets deeper and stronger, making me realize that I couldn't do anything for her. She kept on spending money, time and came up with many interesting things to talk about. Me? I just receive her calls, talk about it, and I couldn't come up with something that makes her happy.

I was stuck with my own pain, until I decided to go to Kuantan just to see her, even for a second. But to do so was very difficult. My girlfriend told me that there weren't any buses or taxis. Even if there are, they will be extremely expensive. It was very difficult to get friends to go with me as well, because I need people in order to convince my parents that I'll be safe there. But everything failed, and I had to continue waiting.

Last Words
Hey, people...who needs a reason to love? You just need to feel good and happy with the person you're with. We don't care if we can do things for each other or not...no matter what, we'll always love each other.

In love, we do not select someone that we see "GOOD" or "PERFECT". There is no logic in love...so don't choose your partners too much. If you like that person, just go for it. You don't need to worry about whether that person would make a good lover, husband, wife or whatnot.

When I loved my girlfriend...I had never even seen her picture or face before. I cried badly when she said her ex-bf wanted her back in May 2008, which, I still haven't even seen her yet, and I didn't care if she was pretty or ugly. Call me stupid...but that's just one example of love. Love can be stupid to others, but we don't care, cuz love only concerns two people.

WNx Homestay: Swarm of the Characters


Savage 2: A Tortured Soul

19 July 2010

Introducing a very unique game for those are still undecided on what kinda games to play!

Alright. Introducing Savage 2! A very unique FREE TO PLAY game that features RTS, FPS and RPG style of gameplay. The game is highly dependent on SKILLS and STRATEGY of the player than items and stuff like that. It is the first and probably the only game to implement RTS and FPS style into one, except the previous Savage 1 of course.

Fast-paced action and cunning strategy development awaits you!

The game consists of two teams, the Legion of Man and the Horde of Beasts. In every game, these two teams will oppose each other and fight until their main base is destroyed. Savage 2 is a online-based multiplayer game, but it also has Practice mode just to solo a bit. In an average game, one player plays as the commander, and the rest of the team plays as the units.

Real Time Strategy, Being the Commander
Just like the previous Savage, Savage 2 requires a Commander to build buildings, gather resources, research and so on. In Savage 2, the commander also has the ability to use buffs or debuffs to strengthen his overall leadership ability. The strategy in which the commander uses, builds and orders other players around is the key to winning the game.

The commander can issue orders to other players to defend, harvest, build, attack, guard and so on. The commander is also the most important person in the game.

Planning and Strategy - CHECK!
Placement and Infrastructure - CHECK!
Ordering Units Around - CHECK!
Research, Tier and Tech - CHECK!
Fog of War - CHECK!

Definitely a RTS.

First Person Shooter, Being the Heroes.
While your wise commander would be busy planning the infrastructure and developing his strategy to move units (the little pawn pieces) around, these units make up the army and are controlled by the players itself. Players play as these Heroes and are not controlled by the commander, they can only be ordered around.

The success of one team does not only depends on perfect planning of the commander, but also the skills and the ability of the player to devastate the opposing force with well planned attacks and strikes. The player goes into FPS while holding a gun-type weapon, and goes into TPS while using melee weapons.

The melee combat is very impressive and you have total control of your actions. You time your attacks right by doing fast attacks or even jump attacks which can break the guard of an enemy. You will also need to block attacks and dodge attacks, then perform your own way of countering the enemy's attack.

Variety of Guns and Spells - CHECK!
Targeting System and Crosshair - CHECK!
WASD and Sprinting Around - CHECK!
Killing Sprees and Fragging - CHECK!
Crouching Behind Cover - CHECK!
Teamwork - CHECK!

Definitely a FPS.

Role Playing Game, Classes and Skills.
As a Hero in the game, you can level up within the game and build up your own attributes to suit your style of play. As the commander builds buildings which allows more units to be created, the player can choose more classes. Every class in the game is relatively useful in combat, but players can take on many roles such as being a healer, buffer, damage dealer and so on.

The skills in which a player can use depends on their class and the tech developed by the commander. When the commander researches and builds certain buildings, they unlock skills and weapons in which a player can use. Yeah, you can also buy and use items.

Oh, and in Savage 2, you are also put into Squads. Each squad is like a small party, and has a leader to perform orders as well. Being around each other will give extra boosts, promoting teamplay. There are also Officers which help out the commander and they all have extra boosts and abilities.

Class System - CHECK!
Spell System - CHECK!
Leveling - CHECK!
Attributes - CHECK!
Party System (Squads) - CHECK!

Definitely an RPG.

Other Fantastic Features
In RPGs like Final Fantasy...you can summon Aeons. But here, you summon Hellbournes! By killing other enemies, you gain Soul Points in which you can use to summon these powerful creatures. The creatures assist in battles and provide lots of damage.

2. Creeps
Some maps, you can find creatures to kill as well, just like creeps in any strategy game.

3. Gadgets and Summonables
Some classes can deploy gadgets like traps and turrets. Some can also summon creatures to fight on their behalf. It all sums up to be a very powerful FPS + RPG gameplay element.

4. Supports Other OS
This game is native to Linux! Not only it runs in Windows, but also Linux and Mac OSX. How cool is that? You don't have to worry about compatibility issues.

Try it out!


What are the Potential Computer Threats?

17 July 2010

The following are a few threats that are quite dangerous or annoying in computers.

Early Note
The threats you see here may be related or are in the same category as one another, but this post is mainly just to let you know about the existence of these threats and their names.

The Threats (Malicious Software or Malware)
Viruses are programs that change the computer's behaviour without the knowledge of the user. It usually modifies the values in your computer's registry. It is also capable of copying itself, hiding and even change itself from time to time. The main reason why it is called a virus is due to the capability to reproduce itself, and it has to attach itself to another file.

Types of viruses include:
a) Polymorphic

- Keeps changing its binary data from time to time so that it would not be detected by anti-viruses. Very tricky, and they normally rewrite themselves every time you try to delete them.

b) Parasitic
- Associates or attaches itself with another program so that when it is executed, the virus is executed as well.

c) Boot Sector
- Very trouble some virus that infects the boot process and sequence of the computer. Everytime your computer starts-up, the virus is loaded, even before your OS loads.

d) Stealth
- Designed to evade all error checks and anti-virus scans. Among the techniques used is to duplicate the original uninfected files, so that when a check or scan is performed, they are redirected to these duplicates. Thus, the infected files cannot be detected.

e) Macro
- Used to infect programs that has a sequence of set actions (macro) to be performed on start such as Microsoft Office, but now, Microsoft Office prompts you before enabling macros.

f) Binary
- Requires another component to work together in order to infect the computer. Very hard to detect because the file is basically incomplete, it works together with other files.

g) Joke
- Joke viruses play pranks on the user such as making their icons run away, flipping their screen and so on. Indirectly, it is not very dangerous to the user.

First virus written in Python language.

2. Trojan Horse
Trojan Horses are programs which hide or disguise as another program (mainly a system file) so that the user does not know its existence. It's just like how the Greeks hid inside the Trojan horse to attack Troy. It executes functions that appear safe and legit but is actually malicious, and is mainly used to provide unauthorized access to hackers such as through Backdoors.

3. Worm
Worms generally spread themselves to other computers connected on the network without the knowledge of the user. Most worms are very dangerous and some even have botnet, rootkit and other functions together. Does not need to attach itself to another file.

4. Botnet
Botnet is the use of malicious programs to take control of computers, in which the computers will be called zombies. It is mainly used to launch distributed denial-of-service attacks.

Simple diagram to show how botnet works.

5. Rootkit
Rootkits are programs that grant administrative rights (root) to the hacker without being detected.

6. Remote Administration Tool
RAT is a program that acts exactly like remote administration, where the hacker can see the screen and take control of the user, without his or her knowledge. Under the category of Spyware.

7. Keylogger
A program that records keystrokes typed by the user through the keyboard. Used to steal passwords and other private information. Also under Spyware.

8. Adware
Software that displays or downloads advertisements in the computer, mainly through pop-ups that can be very annoying to the user. Some advertisements link to other threats as well.

Other Threats
Other threats like hackers, social engineering, human error, employee sabotage, fraud, theft and so on, I guess I do not need to explain about this as it is self-explanatory and known by most people.

Get an Anti-Virus.

Make sure you always have a good anti-virus or firewall installed. If you want free software, try COMODO Internet Security, it is very good. Be aware that these threats can often lead to other bad situations such as in the case of identity and data thefts. Be sure to keep your computer healthy!
