You can be Batman, too!

Being Batman, from Forbes

Forbes featured a story about Being Batman. Talks about how you can equip & train urself to fight evil just like Bruce Wayne 😛 Covers everything from Bat suit to Bat car and even material arts training.

“A good place to start would be an internship at the birthplace of kung fu, the Shaolin Temple in Henan, China. One month of training at the prestigious Tagou school costs about $740, including a private room and training with a personal coach.”

“Of course, if you don’t want to lug around all that stuff, you could forgo the armor and just buy yourself a collectors-grade Batman movie costume for about $430. It won’t provide any protection, but at least you’ll look cool. “

Shaolin Temple ? ahahaa

Legal Music Downloads At 35%, Soon To Pass Piracy

Here‘s an slashdot from reuters, mentioning that legal music downloads are reaching 35% of market share, closing the gap with illegal downloads. It also predicts the trend will continue to pass pirate downloads.

Geez, 35%… There are times like this when I can’t imagine how these numbers come up… Am I unplugged from the real world or something ? Are there really so much pay download users? Yeah I know iTunes is hot, but this is way too much…

News on NiP and the Mysterious 1911

NiP 在驚濤駭浪之中, 以新的 lineup 得到了 ESWC qualifier 頭銜, 取得了前往今年法國 ESWC 參賽的機票。然而在這次 Sweden ESWC 過程當中, 原本被踢出 NiP 的 SpawN, ahl, vilden 組了一隊 “1911” 報名參賽, 還找了 Hyper 和原 SSV 的 Snajdan。

就在眾人期待 NiP 和 1911 的正面對決的時候, 1911 在最後關頭放棄參賽。流言指出是因為 NiP 的壓力迫使 SpawN、ahl、vilden 不能參賽。

這裡有 fragbite 對 Snajdan 的專訪:
以及 NiP 對這件事情的回應 :

事實似乎是, SpawN 等三人與 NiP 的合約未滿…


(有趣的是, 很多人在揣測, 1911 是不是 SK 的另一種復活? S for the 19th, K for the 11th? :p)

同學, 你升高一嗎?

今天早上上班經過木柵高工, 不知道今天是不是學校新生什麼活動的日子, 一堆補習班的工讀生在附近發傳單、擺攤位、做問卷。

啊我像往常一樣從旁邊走過去的時候, 突然就一個工讀生像是發現漏網之魚一般, 往我衝過來, 問著:「同學, 你升高一嗎?」同時右手握著原子筆、左手拿著問卷, 臉上的興奮表情似乎說明了即將開張

我能說什麼? 「….」
