Ok, it's that time of the year again. ICRA07 is coming closer and closer. The clock is tick-tock and my own deadline and a promise to my dear professor that I will show him the full-baked paper is almost gone. (In fact, there is 49 minutes remaining at the time while I was writing this very sentence).
Scumm is Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion. I am explaning a word by a series of more words yet to be defined. Ok, start with Maniac Mansion. It's an adventure game from Lucas Art. The Scumm is a script engine of the game. The script is so well popular in Lucas Art such that almost all adventure game after that implement it. For example, Sam & Max, Full Throttle, Monkey Island series, The Dig, to name just a few.
Our dear soon-to-be-doctor Mr. Sun is asking for a Win98 CD today. After a rather long conversation, we know that he actually need a Win98 boot diskette. Sadly, I have no floppy drive anymore but I could make one easily since I have VMWare machine that is installed with Win98SE. With rawwrite, I could make and send image to him.
I have subscribed to the Google Analytic for long but didn't use it to any fraction of its total potential. I merely look at the first page only. Today, I read the blog of puri and learned that it also stores the record of visiting browser. Obviously it should, if it won't I would be very surprised. However I never bother to look at it before.

Is today the birthday of googletalk?
Today I got a chance of being in the lecture of Nobel laureate in Economics 2005, Prof. Dr. Robert J. Aumann. The topic is War and Peace in which he study the conflict in the spirit of Game Theory, a very common theory in Economics. I don't understand most of the talk but essentially, he extends the game theory to cover multiple round of decision.
Today I watched V for Vendetta. 've heard this one for long, since the day of the conflict between Taksin and http://www.manager.co.th. My friend told me that the movie is good, suiting the current situation back then. Well, I have had no chance to watch it until it appears on the local rental shop. This weekend is 3 days straight so it is a perfect timing for a good long movie day.
Yesterday someone post a youtube link on a forum I usually pay a visit. The video is about a street magic in Japan. The show is performed by an american-born with a perfect Japanese accent. I first saw this guy in a Japanese TV program when I were doing a research in Japan last two year. At that time I don't even know his name but his performance then is very mind blowing. The same feeling appear again in the youtube video. Thanks to youtube, I finally know his name.
No, not mine. Bo will make her trip to the state in a little more than a month from now. Undoubtly, we need a new Laptop. At first, she aimed for a low cost model from Compaq, the one that costs just less than THB 24,000, equipped by a Mobile Sempron. (That was the first time I realised that Sempron is also available in a mobile edition). After a long badger that we should push for a more recent model, she finally changed her mind, providing that I allow a little subsidy.
Of the three things defining [CP24] AccBLue, I have no proficiency nor passion in Camera. The heart of photography, the composition, is not a thing I am interesting. However, the other two, Manga and Game, are what I am fond of. Sadly, it is usually regarded as things-not-for-grown-up. Nevertheless, they are still dear to me. Two weeks ago, my lab friend were moving and thought that he has too much of "not-my-style" manga. He then brought some to our Lab, hoping that someone might find them interesting and then adopt them.
