Comment by noemi on 300

too hyped in fact that during the first few minutes i found myself anticipating for the scenes that will make me go wow (and i hate it when that happens ‘cuz even if the film is good, i sometimes feel dissatisfied)

Hi Ruby, I wish I could help you out but I no longer have any of the review material I used. I would recommend that you check out some of the sample exams or past exams (there should be some that are downloadable from the jitse website I think), as these should help you greatly. The scope of the exam is rather wide, I understand it covers a lot of Computer Science stuff (I’m no ComSci grad so I don’t know how accurate that is), there were questions on terminology, algorithms, software engineering concepts, etc.

Comment by Roy on The Miracle PC

Nah, I found it really it was bad memory. (The mem test that came with Ubuntu really helped)I removed one of the 256MB pieces and Ubuntu works fine now (although I now have only 256MB of memory left). Windows XP cannot boot at all, I guess one of the files really did become corrupted. So I’m now a 100% linux user (at least for the PC in my room)

hi… i would like to know if you had with you the booklet when you took the exam? the questionnaire..actually, i have no idea what would be scope of the exam. i was just informed that i’ll be taking the exam..i only have 1 week to go..i have no time to review..can you help me?

Scan for malware perhaps? Sounds like something was trying to hide a dll and the boot sector from the OS to me – of course I could just be paranoid.

Thanks Peng. I’ve already told them I’m willing to go, but asked for assurance that I would have internet at home when I’m there. πŸ˜€ Don’t know if it will push through…

Comment by peng on Heroes

supah hiro is my favorite too! i love how he nonchalantly explained that he “teleporto” to NY like “star trek” when interrogated by police.oooppps… just realized you’ve only seen the pilot. so i guess this is a sorta spoiler.

As a developer who regularly talks with users, I believe it is our responsibility to help users express what they want. This is not just about writing specs and having them sign it.It is also an issue of expections. Developers sometimes (or oftentimes?) assume that users know the capabilities and limitations of a program and that these things should not be discussed with the users.We also need to be creative in helping users understand what we are trying to build.

There’s a suiko 5 already? One of the last games I’ve played (before I’ve retired from gaming) was Suikoden 2… speaking of, heavily scripted games such as Xenosaga can be a bit of turn off too… πŸ™‚

Pinoy nga yung #ubuntu-ph. it’s the loco channel πŸ˜‰Amarok is impressive. I tried it when Mandrake 10.1 OR came out. Astig! May live cd pa nga na basically Amarok talaga yung ffeature πŸ˜‰ Check it out on distrowatch πŸ˜€As for desktop environments. you could opt for which one everytime you login. Everything is just a sudo apt-get install away. I personally recommend XFCE πŸ˜‰ Looks sleek and it’s light πŸ˜€

I was looking at the screens, and I seemed to like KDE better, don’t know why. Hmm… can I have both, and switch on the fly or something?I got Amarok to work after awhile… turned out I was doing something wrong with updating the gstreamer update.I’ll check out XMMS, but I’m really quite impressed with Amarok so far… it’s got some things going for it that Winamp doesn’t.Thanks for the heads up… luckily, since I’m still just toying around with the ubuntu install, I don’t care much if anyone hijacks root or whatnot =pWhenever I boot into kubuntu, I’m on #kubuntu on freenode… although #ubuntu- ph sounds better, para Pinoy hehe
