I’d actually finished up with The Lucifer Code a week ago (at least), but heh, I simply scribbled a few lines of me general opinion on the book and left it at that; a short review’ll do IMO.
In comparison to Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons, this book’s plot isn’t fast-paced enough. Sci-fi babble scattered throughout the book (optical computers woot) but the action elements could be better. Makes you think for a wee bit on whether there really is an afterlife, but not too thought-provoking. To quote something I read long ago: “close, but no cigar.”
In short, borrow the book from me if you wanna have a go; forget about buying it.
The more I listen to my lecturer going on about quality management, the more I find that it’s a bunch of bullcrap. In the same way that conducting surveys do not represent the true opinions of the people, doing random inspections does not and should not render any visible pattern on the defects that may occur on the production line. Therefore, why should something like the Seven Run Rule apply?
Weird thoughts like this entertain me while he blabbers on in his accented voice, which is oh-so-sleep-inducing.
Gees, I’m wondering when my sanity will start to slip if I learn anymore of this.
Post-dated pics heh, kinda starting to have a backlog.
So there was this end of season sale for Nike over at Suntec City two days ago, don’t know if it’s still on though. Good buy for the shoes if you like Nike stuff, since it’s 50% off the usual price.
An early dinner over at Kenny Roger’s, Marina Square. That particular outlet doesn’t require you to walk over to the counter and order (like 99% of all the others) but instead allows you to sit on your lazy arse and let the staff take your order(s).
Conclusion: the quarter-chicken wasn’t all that good.
Sidenote: their decor’s actually quite interesting; the lights strung up near each table are actually made of red glass bottles if you looked closely. (No pictures because the HP sucks at taking overexposed pictures.)
Dinner with colleagues, and the food that nearly made me sick up the night before heh.
– Tucker Max’s in the New York Times ;p
– Now you know the power of Google’s Adsense : ) Nice writeup on RoughType.
– A gazillion e-books for you to learn all the programming languages ;p Doubt anyone’ll be interested tho.
Reminder of the day: Thou shalt not doze off at lessontime, despite the fact that the lecturer is talking bullcrap.
