End of A Levels!!!

A Levels are officially over today!!! Won't talk about the papers as I see no point in that.

It was supposed to be liberation, but unlike the end of the O Levels, I did not feel anything special today. I know its over uh huh, but I still damn feel the same. 2 years of stress plus endless exams and mocks have made me immune to the effects of the final A-Level exams.

I played soccer at The Cage with most of my class guys today. As with the previous time after the prelims, I did not really play alot. Soccer was never my cup of tea unlike many guys. I guess, this can be said for most sports in general.

Rather, I spent a significant amount of time conversing with Gabriel, Jiacheng, Yan Chao and abit with Hong Hao. As for the topic of discussion, better for me to leave it unsaid. It can scare or even hurt the feelings of others. Abit wasting the $5.20 entry fee but I dun really care lah, the conversation was rather "enlightening".

So after the longest hiatus of 11 days, I will be going for another haitus. This time, its my 0713 class chalet which will start tomorrow!!!

--------------------------------------------------

My almost 3 year old computer gave up over the weekend which cost me my internet access. Thats the reason for the hiatus if not I would have blogged a post called the "Unofficial end of A Levels".

So I did a couple of swapping with the parts in my com, my father's and and the spare com.

The spare on is on the left and my father's is on the right. Couldn't get the spare one up and running due to some crazy motherboard problem with the PCI bus. So I'm now using my father's com with him using my brother's.

The transition was tough. Reinstalling the operating systems was mandatory. I got a new SATA PCI card on Friday at Sim Lim with the class guys as none of my coms have SATA support for my HDD. Spent at least 2 hours just to slot the PCI cards by trial-and-error as the motherboards kept kicking up sounds indicating interrupt conflicts.

Its obviously a downgrade. From 3.06Ghz HT to a 1.9Ghz, 1024MB DDR2 RAM to 512DDR, Geforce 6200 TC to Geforce 4 MX 400 just to name a few. I can't push my "new" system as hard as I did for my previous one anymore. Games run more slowly, some can't even run anymore, damn pathetic.

The worse part is I can't get a new com. With my coming NS, there is absolutely no justifiable reason why I deserve a new com when I can only use it over the weekends. Now, to continue setting up the software...

--------------------------------------------------

No prizes for guessing who that is if you have read my previous posts. I posted this for remembrance of our "unofficial date" last Friday. To all those bozos out there, quit spamming my tagboard if you intend to do so.
