Takes Two To Tango

February 22, 2007  |  Uncategorized

It takes two to tango! Moving files over from one computer to another is exhausting work, the fact that I have to sit there and read into the files that I want to transfer is quite hectic hehehe and time consuming but the good thing is, I left my MP3s and TV Shows copying over last night before I went to bed and hence those are done.  I am also backing up stuff on my External HD before fully deleting them.  It’s really sad LOL!

Forgot to mention one thing in the previous post and that is, that K, was the one who recommended Professional Computers to me and hooked me up with the great deal.  I am liking it quite alot and it’s great.

8 Days of classes are left and 2 extra days of doing a project together.  It truly has been a journey, last month the fact that I was going to undergo training for 3 months felt as if it’ll take forever and stuff yet now it seems as if things are moving too quickly.  I have learned alot of things and I am maintaining my standards on dealing with things.  I don’t exert the extra effort, I just exert enough to make my work stand out but at the same time not go overboard at all.  I’m just neat and smart by nature hehe :P  Imagine this, I wake up some mornings really tired and dead not feeling like going to work but I push myself to attend even if I am sick hehe in fear of losing attendance marks LOL!

I’m glad for this long weekend, I need the time to unwind a bit, so now let me go back to finishing my computer, Ciaos.

Preview: Professional Computers

February 20, 2007  |  Uncategorized

Yesterday I posted about how I made the purchase for 3 computers to build and a couple of monitors and stuff, and how some of you became jealous by how lovely looking my monitor is. Well today I’d like to mention that, I am really liking Professional Computer’s service because for one thing the computers were to be sent over Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 and instead they are being delivered in the next hour or two, at 7PM they called to tell us that they can send them out tonight and if we wanted them then, and of course I was jumping with glee while Papa was answering them. So not only did they give me a great price for such a powerful system (not that powerful but great enough), but they also delivered it before the scheduled date.

The weekend is going to be spent with me working as an IT Technician which is almost what I do. Sister and Mom want me to shift their stuff on their new computers and so I have tomorrow to do that for them. *jumping up and down with glee while waiting for my new baby!*

Update: [9:00PM] They delivered the systems and I am unboxing them, I’m really excited, even though the Case color kinda sucks tush but oh well! Hehehe Mom saw the 19″ Monitors and decided she wanted the 22″ one.  Oh well, I don’t mind!

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Find out what it means to me
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Take care, TCB

That’s my thought of the day.  Lots of people have no sense of respect and don’t even practice it, it’s just sickening.  I however am saying, SCREW THEM! And moving on with life right? :P  That’s what I should do shouldn’t I?

Oh and we have Saturday off now.  He wanted to make us sweat a bit I guess.

Oh Lord, the day seems just so long.  I want to go out, the weather is to die for!

Lovely Lunch, NOT!

February 18, 2007  |  Uncategorized

I feel that I need to watch Borat today, I am not sure why but I want to laugh like I never laughed before so I guess that’s my target at home.  However what I want to talk about right now is the fact that today’s buffet lunch is EMPTY! I mean imagine this, JACQUI HAD ONLY MACARONI SALAD + 2 SMALL ROUND PIZZAS + 2 CHEESE SAMBOSA’S! Seriously I am serious!

But of course that’ll help my goal now and allow me to lose the weight that I have gained.  But I can tell you this, that I look kinda cute in my grey suit with the grey other stuff LOL! I am not going to explain it but oh well.

Oh yeah and something I hate right now is the fact that ummm! Saturday I have bloody work!!!!!!!!! I WANT TO FREAKIN KILL PEOPLE! Oh well let me waste the other 30 minutes catching up on Blogs.

Crazy Friday

February 17, 2007  |  Uncategorized

No not Robinson Crusoe’s Friday.  I had a crazy Friday hell my weekend was quite nice and crazy.  I at least got a chance to see my Uncles and Grandma again since we had one last Thursday lunch before the move which’ll be all of this week and the next.  But Thursday morning I went out with Dad to get new computers and well before we left we got a 22″ LCD Benq Monitor which is the freakin bomb!  I really like it and I am thinking about going either to 19″ Wide or keeping the 22″ Wide.  I swear I had the latest episode of Heroes in HighDefinition and once I put it in Fullscreen I went like CRAZY!

Friday however was a different story, we had an event for my company where we discussed what happened last year and the future perspectives of the company itself, it was quite interesting and nice to see the entire staff in one area, I never thought that the place I work at had that many people employeed.  The event had a presentation in the beginning, the passing out of awards, dinner, karoke, and raffle prizes (where I didn’t win the 42″ Plasma Screen :() It was crazy and fun hehehe.  So yeah, that’s how things are.

Otherwise, nothing new on the front here, I am trying to finish up things, I need to restructure my time, and I need to lose the 2kgs I gained this past month and a half :(  So yeah I guess that’s my update!

PC Specs

February 15, 2007  |  Uncategorized

We are thinking of replacing the PC’s that we already have with others, and instead of going for a brand-name we are going to be building them. So the following are the specs that we have decided on:

Processor: 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo (4MB Cache)
Motherboard: Intel 945 GNT
Memory: 2GB DDR2 RAM
ATX Case – 400W + 2 Extra Fans
DVD/CD: DVD RW 16X (LG Brand)
Hard Disk: 320GB SATA
VGA Card: MSI: Nvidia GeForce 7300LE 256MB VGA with incorporated 512MB
Network Card: Built-in 10/100/1000 (Gigabit Ethernet)
Soundcard: Built in 7.1
Floppy Drive: 1.44 MB
Mouse + Keyboard: Logitech Multimedia Keyboard and mouse

All of this comes out to 298KD

Now I am confused about the LCD Monitors, we are going for 19″ and there is 19″ Benq Crystal Bright for 77KD whereas there is a 19″ Wide LCD Benq as well for 72KD, and there is a 22″ Benq as well Wide Screen for 120KD.

So what do my smart friends think? Which monitor?
