Just read this today at work, pretty cool extra I didn't know about for Windows!

 

I set mine to monitor HK and Japanese times, just for the lulz. XD

Phones without screen protectors? What kind of blasphemy is this? Ghost Armor and Invisible Shield are in some serious trouble now.

*Yeah I don't have any protection on my 4S; dis stuff is well-engineered enough to withstand most daily use and I ain't going to waste $50 on some mega thick iPhone case or some clunky, grease-magnet screen protector

That's the way the 4S was meant to be used. That hardened stainless steel can really take a beating! It can be run over by a car, and still only require a new screen and back glass to be up and running again.

Can't use bulletproof glass due to thickness, and no titanium alloy because it doesn't do the reception any good.

Also, MKBHD has a good video on phone cases:

I just add 16 hours to the clock for Japan and 15 for HK/China. : D
That's another reason why 24-hour time can be useful.

But then I'd have to do a bit of math in my head before I know the time!

What electronica bands do you like?

why not both! i'd be totally down if there was a zombie themed final fantasy @_@

i don't really follow bands so much, usually just random artists all over the place. I started with anime soundtracks, then i found touhou/zun then to trance, now to randoms. usually my music is pretty melodic/chill but i like upbeat stuff if i can find them. i find most of my music on youtube. a lot of youtubers like uploading music with anime wallpapers haha
here be music (Click to show)

Nice~ How'd you get your hands on that in the first place?
One of the people I used to mod consoles for. The story goes that one of his friends worked for a developer in the same area as Microsoft. They got that and some other stuff for development, and then they were gonna throw it away since they didn't need it anymore, but the friend gave it to my customer, and he in turn sold it to me.
Also got this from him:

I don't know about you guys but all the Microsoft interns got Xbox Ones for presents tongue.gif I'm super excited to develop stuff on the Kinect whenever that becomes supported biggrin.gif

Dayum, nice. I ought to try and get an internship there!

Btw, as an intern, do you get access to the M$ store and their employee prices?

I carry everything "naked"... but i wouldn't call that being "naked" at all, as an electronics guy, I'd only call a bare PCB "naked"....

 

I mean... the device manufacturers went through the trouble of putting the components in a case.... why would I want to put another case over that case?

Buy a premium phone with nice material and all. Then put a cheap plastic case on top.

Unless that is a Samsung... Then the case is most likely more premium than the phone.

I've been taught that my TZ was UTC+8 (here in HK) since I was a kid so I could convert a time in another TZ in my head through simple arithmetic operations.

 

There's a stereotype in America about Asian countries having far better education systems, with dedicated students. As far as I can tell, it's true. I had (arguably) a college level education by age six due to reading encyclopedias, dictionaries, science books, fantasy books, and so on...I even made a list of over 6,000 species of fish with paper and pencil a year or two later...but I was never very good at math. That's why I gave up my old dream of becoming an astrophysicist.

EarthBound (my second favorite video game) has zombies and just about every other zany thing.

 

I collect Final Fantasy soundtracks. Some are really hard to find!

 

Keep tabs on my posts here. I'm posting a thread soon where you can discover new music.

I feel the same way about DAPs. They usually look better without a case, and I try treating them delicately.

You download some software on a computer on the same LAN as the console, and you can debug your games.

 

Admittedly, I don't believe I've ever even turned it on... :/

It's based on the Halo 1 Xbox though, which came out way before Minecraft. :p

Psh, you only do simple math in Grade school. Yo brain can't handle it! And besides, how else would you get the time without a clock?

Yeah interns are basically full-times so we get the same employee discounts tongue.gif


I hate being on the east coast and trying to convert to HK time... is it +11 or +12 or +13 depending on what time of year T_T
