Facebook sucks

Yep. I signed on in order to view my friend's baby pics, but my real name was rejected by the automatic process. I changed it a bit to get in, but now I can't change back to my real name, keep getting this "Your name change request has been rejected by our automated approval system." message. Appears I am not the only one either. Just google it and you will see pages of people trying to do that.

If I have enough money, I will just start a new facebook LOL

$3000 a month for shelter?

This story on drudge caught my eye:

Each person in homeless shelter cost $3000 a month. I remember when I was at school, I worked an entire summer (3 month) in a restaurant, got about $3000, and that paid my tuition, rent and food for almost a year (but I was lucky, paying in-state and live in a part of a tiny house that rented $60 a month, while others have to live apartments several times higher than that). I miss that $60 a month rent, the place is tiny, just enough for 1 bed and a table, and has a shared bath room, but so many fun memories....

Even now, $3000 can pay my mortgage, all the monthly expense and I could live comfortably and save some (even if I have to pay tax on the $3000).

This is just strange. Boston (where the news is from) can save a lot by just giving the homeless $1500 each, they should be able to find cheap apartments and take care of themselves. Or even better, give me $3000 and I could take in 3 homeless and provide them food and shelter.

Cool Starcraft match

This is a nice match. And I thought one of them would lose for sure...

I had a break through!

Yep, I had a break through on my secret project. I haven't got much time on my project at all recently, as I don't have much spare time and I was addicted again to Starcraft and watching Korean Pro Games on Starcraft. But yesterday I got a tiny amount of time looking at the data I collected and all of a sudden something hit me and the data did give me something.

So I will try to squeeze time to finish up the project.

Too strong for me

Warning, the language used here is very strong and might disturb you greatly. Don't read if you can't handle it.

It is just unbelievable.

Who let the dogs out

I was reading Tom's hardware and read this topic:
Microsoft will give away windows 7 to selected people who host windows 7 party.

Anyway, I would imagine you need certain luck to win a spot. However a video in the above link really made me laugh, and it immediately remind me of a song (see this post's title)
