Another Unlucky Incident

>> Thursday, April 23, 2009

I guess I am unlucky these days. Guess what? My Barracuda 7200.11 500GB of harddisc just head crashed within 1 day without any implication. Before that, there isn't any problem at all.

And this is what we call head crash:

Basically head crash happens when the read-write head of a hard disc drive touches its rotating platter resulting in catastrophic damage(which what we usually say scratches) to the magnetic media on the platter surface. Normally it won't happen unless you shake your hard disc and I vow I didn't touch anything even my CPU at all.

I searched back for my resit and I discovered that it is dated on 14/09/2008. Just half a year this drive is actually lasted. Should I feel happy that I can still claim for warranty or disappointed just because it spoiled?

I'm still in a sense of disbelieve right now. Where goes the quality control?


B is the new C

Here's something to cheer you up before exams. Please click to enlarge it if you can't see it.

The student actually submitted this to his professor in a true/false exam. His professor sent him an e-mail the following day:

Dear Michael,

Every year I attempt to boost my students’ final grades by giving them
this relatively simple exam consisting of 100 True/False questions from only 3 chapters of material. For the past 20 years that I have taught Intro Communications 101 at this institution I have never once seen someone score below a 65 on this exam. Consequently, your score of a zero is the first in history and ultimately brought the entire class average down a whole 8 points.

There were two possible answer choices: A (True) and B (False). You chose C for all 100 questions in an obvious attempt to get lucky with a least a quarter of the answers. It’s as if you didn’t look at a single question. Unfortunately, this brings your final grade in this class to failing. See you next year!

May God have mercy on your soul.

Professor William Turner

P.S. If all else fails, go with B from now on.
B is the new C


Cooking Disaster

>> Saturday, April 11, 2009

Ok. I can't say this is impossible to happen, but it is unlikely to happen. I thought kitchen cooking utensils are made firm and tight. And this is what happened to me a week ago :

It is frustrated when half of your cooking is gone and in the end, I spent time cleaning up the mess in the kitchen instead of enjoying the meal. What an unlucky day.
