Gaming notebooks are often the trappings of the wealthier geeks — or at least those that forgo food to afford a pr_msi_gx630_f

MSI GX630

high-priced rig. But now you can afford a decent gaming notebook, even if you aren’t the type who has a season pass at Aspen and a Lamborghini. You don’t need a dump truck full of cash to afford the $800 MSI GX630, and it can actually hold its own in the most heated frag-fest.

Granted, it can’t go head-to-head against a $3,500 Alienware 17-incher, but it isn’t a dollar-menu double cheeseburger either. MSI included a 2.3-GHz AMD X2 and 4 GB of RAM to give it a respectable 100.4 frames per second in Quake 4, and its business performance score put it in league with a Sony FZ or Apple 15-incher.

Then again, you can’t offer such an affordable gamer without cutting corners. There’s no Blu-ray option, so you won’t be piping any hot hi-def out to your TV with this machine. The keyboard is also a weird mix of thoughtful accents and blundered control placement. The addition of a numpad is smart, but some gamers will fume at the misplacement of the left Control button (there’s a Fn button in its stead). There are also only 2 USB ports, and the fan blows right on your mouse hand (unless you’re a southpaw).

The system’s 1.5-hour battery life is poopy at best. It gets a little leeway by being a gaming machine, but for a 15-incher, the battery life should be better. But for all these shortcomings, the GX630 receives an executive pardon for its price — ramen-eating game junkies everywhere should rejoice.

WIRED Cheap, cheap, cheap. Offers decent but not astounding gaming performance combined with solid business skillz.

TIRED Mushy keyboard with a misplaced Control key. Hot fan makes for sweaty mouse hand. Where’s our Blu-ray drive?

Soon we may get the first ever glimpse of the dark side of the sun.

Well, no, there’s no actual dark side of a luminous ball of burning gas, but there is an effective dark side, as in, the side of the sun we can’t see at any given time.

Scientists aren’t content to get just half of the picture, so they’ve launched the STEREO (Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatories) mission, a pair of NASA spacecraft that will orbit the sun simultaneously to provide a complete view of all sides of the star at once.

“Then there will be no place to hide and we can see the entire sun for the first time,” STEREO project scientist Michael Kaiser of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center told Wired.com.

The perfect spherical view will come on Feb. 6, 2011. Right now the satellites, which were launched in October 2006, are about 90 degrees apart, which allows a picture of about 270 degrees of the sun — the fullest view yet.

“The who goal of all of this is to try to get a better handle to try to predict solar storms, which cause cell phone disturbances, and disruptions to communications and power.” Kaiser said. “We’d like to be able to predict these things as far in advance as possible to give us a longer warning time.”

Solar storms are magnetic disruptions on the sun that release violent sprays of charged particles into space. These storms can produce magnificent displays of the Northern Lights. But some past storms have also cost airlines and satellite communications industries millions of dollars, and have led to large scale power blackouts (including one across the entire province of Quebec, Canada). Being able to reliably forecast these tempests in advance could make a huge difference in preventing disturbances on Earth.

Predicting solar weather is also important for the future of manned spaceflight. If astronauts are exposed to the intense radiation from solar storms while traveling beyond the protective magnetic field of the Earth, they could suffer serious harm. Even astronauts close to home who venture out for a spacewalk during a storm are put in danger.

“For future missions going to the moon and Mars, that’s very important,” Kaiser said. “Some of these solar storms can be very intense. If the astronauts were completely exposed to one of these storms the radiation could be high.”

The STEREO mission also aims to improve our basic scientific understanding of the dynamics within the sun, which could shed light on the workings of stars in general.

Há Dias

Há dias que vem
Só vem
E dias que vão
E só vão
E eu sei
Também só tenho que passar.

Beira a mar
A beira ira
Maravilha ou solidão
É para que?
E para quem estou?
De qualquer maneira
De qualquer maneira vai passar
De qualquer maneira
De qualquer maneira vou ficar

[translation]

Há Dias (There are days)

There are days
that just come
And days
that just go
And some days,
I just pass too

I’m on the edge of a beautiful sea
On the edge of anger,
marvel or solitude
What is this for?
Why am I here?
I know, I know
Good or bad
It will pass
And I’m not giving up

Cognitive dissonance is a psychological term describing the uncomfortable tension that may result from having two conflicting thoughts at the same time, or from engaging in behavior that conflicts with one’s beliefs, or from experiencing apparently conflicting phenomena.

Do you sleep on your side, with one knee bent and the other straight? You are a quiet and introverted person. The saying ‘Still waters run deep’ seems to have been made for you, because though you don’t talk much, you observe and listen. You talk less because you don’t believe in indulging in unnecessary conversation. You are intelligent, and are of a balanced nature. Rarely will you lose control of yourself. You know what you are doing, and where you are going. However, you don’t have too much patience with those who are less intelligent than you. Loosen up! You don’t discuss your feelings, and are not a very emotional person. You are rational and think with your head, not with your heart.

alam mo ba?

1. ‘Kung hindi mo mahal ang isang tao, wag ka nang magpakita ng motibo para mahalin ka nya..’

2. ‘Huwag mong bitawan ang bagay na hindi mo kayang makitang hawak ng iba.’

3. ‘Huwag mong hawakan kung alam mong bibitawan mo lang.’

4. ‘Huwag na huwag ka hahawak kapag alam mong may hawak ka na.’

5. ‘Parang elevator lang yan eh, bakit mo pagsisiksikan ung sarili mo kung walang pwesto para sayo. Eh meron naman hagdan, ayaw mo lang pansinin.’

6. ‘Kung maghihintay ka nang lalandi sayo, walang mangyayari sa buhay mo.. Dapat lumandi ka din.’

7. ‘Pag may mahal ka at ayaw sayo, hayaan mo. Malay mo sa mga susunod na araw ayaw mo na din sa kanya, naunahan ka lang.’

8. ‘Hiwalayan na kung di ka na masaya. Walang gamot sa tanga kundi pagkukusa.’

9. ‘Pag hindi ka mahal ng mahal mo wag ka magreklamo. Kasi may mga tao rin na di mo mahal pero mahal ka.. Kaya quits lang.’

10. ‘Kung dalawa ang mahal mo, piliin mo yung pangalawa. Kasi hindi ka naman magmamahal ng iba kung mahal mo talaga yung una.’

11. ‘Hindi porke’t madalas mong ka-chat, kausap sa telepono, kasama sa mga lakad o ka-text ng wantusawa eh may gusto sayo at magkakatuluyan kayo. Meron lang talagang mga taong sadyang friendly, sweet, flirt, malandi, pa-fall o paasa.’

12. ‘Huwag magmadali sa babae o lalaki. Tatlo, lima , sampung taon, mag-iiba ang pamantayan mo at maiisip mong hindi pala tamang pumili ng kapareha dahil lang maganda o nakakalibog ito. Totong mas mahalaga ang kalooban ng tao higit sa anuman. Sa paglipas ng panahon, maging ang mga crush ng bayan nagmumukha ding pandesal, maniwala ka.’

13. ‘Minsan kahit ikaw ang nakaschedule, kailangan mo pa rin maghintay, kasi hindi ikaw ang priority.’

14. ‘Mahirap pumapel sa buhay ng tao. Lalo na kung hindi ikaw yung bida sa script na pinili nya.’

15. ‘Alam mo ba kung gaano kalayo ang pagitan ng dalawang tao pag nagtalikuran na sila? Kailangan mong libutin ang buong mundo para lang makaharap ulit ang taong tinalikuran mo.’

16. ‘Mas mabuting mabigo sa paggawa ng isang bagay kesa magtagumpay sa paggawa ng wala’

17. ‘Hindi lahat ng kaya mong intindihin ay katotohan, at hindi lahat ng hindi mo kayang intindihin ay kasinungalingan’

18. ‘Kung nagmahal ka ng taong di dapat at nasaktan ka, wag mong sisihin ang puso mo. Tumitibok lng yan para mag-supply ng dugo sa katawan mo. Ngayon, kung magaling ka sa anatomy at ang sisisihin mo naman ay ang hypothalamus mo na kumokontrol ng emotions mo, mali ka pa rin! Bakit? Utang na loob! Wag mong isisi sa body organs mo ang mga sama ng loob mo sa buhay! Tandaan mo: magiging masaya ka lang kung matututo kang tanggapin na hindi ang puso, utak, atay o bituka mo ang may kasalanan sa lahat ng nangyari sayo, kundi IKAW mismo!’

19. ‘Pakawalan mo yung mga bagay na nakakasakit sa iyo kahit na pinasasaya ka nito. Wag mong hintayin ang araw na sakit na lang ang nararamdaman mo at iniwan ka na ng kasiyahan mo.’

20. ‘Gamitin ang puso para alagaan ang mga taong malalapit sa iyo. Gamitin ang utak para alagaan ang sarili mo.’

21. ‘Ang pag-ibig parang imburnal…nakakatakot mahulog…at kapag nahulog ka, it’s either by accident or talagang tanga ka..’

Last saturday. It was like any Saturday, spending the afternoon hanging out at the mall with friends.
While riding a jeepney on the way home, Nina and I noticed two unique lolas sititng in front of us. The first lola, she noticed, was wearing a purple shirt with the words “EROTIC” in big print. Hmmm… Siguro, nung gumising si lola, sabi nya sa sarili, ‘May asim pa ako at ipaalam ko yan sa mundo!!”… ^_^
The other lola I observed, kept on twitching and jerking, and was having cold sweats. I wonder why? Hmm.. When the driver pulls over to pick-up a passenger, she tells the driver not to because its already full even though the jeepney can still accommodate maybe another three or four passengers. I figured it out, siguro, hindi na talaga mapigilan ni lola na mag-bombs away… The two passengers beside her are already covering their noses… What a day.. ^_^
