Is Your Son a Computer Hacker?


“If your son has requested a new “processor” from a company called “AMD”, this is genuine cause for alarm. AMD is a third-world based company who make inferior, “knock-off” copies of American processor chips. They use child labor extensively in their third world sweatshops, and they deliberately disable the security features that American processor makers, such as Intel, use to prevent hacking. AMD chips are never sold in stores, and you will most likely be told that you have to order them from internet sites. Do not buy this chip! This is one request that you must refuse your son, if you are to have any hope of raising him well.”

“Quake is an online virtual reality used by hackers. It is a popular meeting place and training ground, where they discuss hacking and train in the use of various firearms. Many hackers develop anti-social tendencies due to the use of this virtual world, and it may cause erratic behaviour at home and at school.”

“If your son is using Quake, you should make hime understand that this is not acceptable to you. You should ensure all the firearms in your house are carefully locked away, and have trigger locks installed. You should also bring your concerns to the attention of his school.”

“BSD, Lunix, Debian and Mandrake are all versions of an illegal hacker operation system, invented by a Soviet computer hacker named Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War. It is based on a program called “xenix”, which was written by Microsoft for the US government. These programs are used by hackers to break into other people’s computer systems to steal credit card numbers. They may also be used to break into people’s stereos to steal their music, using the “mp3” program. Torovoltos is a notorious hacker, responsible for writing many hacker programs, such as “telnet”, which is used by hackers to connect to machines on the internet without using a telephone.”

“Your son may try to install “lunix” on your hard drive. If he is careful, you may not notice its presence, however, lunix is a capricious beast, and if handled incorrectly, your son may damage your computer, and even break it completely by deleting Windows, at which point you will have to have your computer repaired by a professional.”

“If you see the word “LILO” during your windows startup (just after you turn the machine on), your son has installed lunix. In order to get rid of it, you will have to send your computer back to the manufacturer, and have them fit a new hard drive. Lunix is extremely dangerous software, and cannot be removed without destroying part of your hard disk surface.”

Great Article on Designing Webpages, here.

I love a quote in this article:

"Nobody, with the possible exception of your mother, will change his or her monitor resolution in order to view your site."

Heheh… To the Lockergnome Message Board Members who happened to stumble here, pardon my French that’s so interspersed through out the site… I appreciate you coming here though… Thanks to deuce868 and karit for helping me out… And also a big thanks to

Woohoo!!! After countless days FTP server being down, I have recoded a wee bit of my page so now it’s tighter than ever… Most obvious is the integration of the archive page into the index.php, something I have tried countless days to do… And at the bottom of the page, the number of seconds it takes the page being generated… So b0g-ish but hey it works… Now Let’s see if I can bring it down to 0.004 seconds… That’d be extra tight…

Crazy Wireless Connection!

Now that’s nice…

Apple – Powerbook G4 17″.

Fuck… Why can’t everyone make cool computers like apple does? If I wasn’t raised on Wintel, I’d be a Mac Freak by default.

Let’s see… What to do with my pay? There are lots of ways to go, but all of them are really expensive. One could very well be RM4000, that means $2000 for the pair. Another could weigh in at an impressive B$800, but I get entertainment. There’s always the $500 option for mobility, or the quite crazy $3800 option for my employment purposes… But the last one I will leave on the backburner for a while.

Heheh… You don’t have a fucking idea what I’m talking about do you? Kudos if you can guess all four. Maybe even a prize for the correct entries… Rant back the answers…

Hmmm… My mind is floating off somewhere in the far reaches of the subconcious state, which means I can’t think porperly to write a proper rant.But I will lay down a few stuff to keep the people who keep coming to this site, all three of you, satisfied.

Employment Opportunities

Went out with Fandi yesterday, (leaving my important, and grossly overdue work in the library) to look for a job. First destination? DST. Second? Empire. I wouldn’t have gone through the trouble if I had just had a nice PC i can do those graphics work, but alas, I don’t… Therefore I have to go with them to look for a job. DST sounds promising, but Empire… That’s a different story altogether my friends..

Other Stuff of the Utmost Importance to Think About

[Deleted for Security Purposes]

You might be blind!

Colour blindness affects one in twenty men. Although it’s not a serious condition, it can affect your perception of colours in a few ways, for example:

  • Different shades of red are dull/indistinct
  • Men are unable to distinguish between greens, oranges, pale reds, and browns. These colours appear as the same hue only being distinguished by their intensity.
  • Blues and yellows cannot be distinguished
  • All colours are black and white

Ishihara vision test normally used to test this condition

It is hereditary (from an abnormal gene inherited from the mother) and affects mainly men; however, it may also occur because of diseases or as a side effect of medicines.

Colour blindness cannot be treated; however, it should cause no harm to a person who has it, so treatment is not necessary.

You can find it if you have colour blindness by taking this quick and easy test here.


Good lord man! Have you been watching the tube lately? I was browsing Astro one night when I came across the Disney Channel… It’s not the fact that Disney has its own channel that amazes me, but what was on was quite disturbing… I swear I saw the fourth iteration of the Ketchup Song, that nauseatingly catchy Asereje song if you’re not catching my drift… And strangely this was made for kids this time… It has lots of kids doing the dance move, but what’s even laughably scary is the d00ds in the Tomato costume… What in god’s good name are they thinking? Let’s recap: the first one was the beach scene, the second was a mixture of the beach scene and the proper video, the third one is the proper video, and the fourth is this. Hell, the even have lyrics so you can effectively sing along to it! MY GOD! They’re trying to milk everything out of that one hit wonder! And driving me insane million times over! DAMN!!!!
