There’s a blogsphere fever going around called the “five things you didn’t know about me” meme. Basically, every blogger who has been picked writes five things which might not be known about themselves, then publish it with five other blogger’s names. Then it goes on and on and on. I’ve been out of the loop a bit, but since Mauricio Freitas, Chris Haaker and Hugo Ortega have all tagged me, I feel obliged to comply.

  1. I came to Australia not knowing a single word of English.
  2. I’ve never received a score better than C+ in any of my English classes during primary and secondary education.
  3. I played a lot of and quite well in Counter-Strike.
  4. I’m camera shy.
  5. I’ve never used more than 50% of any hard drive capacity. (I’ll never win this Seagate contest)

That’s all from me. I’m going to tag Sean Alexander, Mary Jo Foley, Ed Bott, Robert McLaws and Brandon LeBlanc.

First post in 07. Happy new year. ;)

20 insightful thoughts

  1. I’ve owned 10, all of which failed after less than six months of usage, the last 5 where warranty replacements. Meanwhile, my Western Digital disk keeps spinning away…

  2. I still on 2006! WTF?! I must be in this country without so much technology, and also a year before the rest of the world?! What’s this?!?!?!
    Am I talking to the future right now?
    ^^
    Have a happy new year =)

  3. And for a wee bit o’ trivia — Hugh is just as sarcastic in person as he is on paper. I had the fortune of serving him coffee/liquor for a few weeks in the summer of ’96 or ’97 when he did a brief stint in Chicago.

    Now you know. :P

  5. The vista was look like very amazing.But in the world specially in India so many people using the below desktop motherboard.so in this reason even they can’t to try the vista also.Because the visa trail version was slowdown even desktop board computers also.so you must lost the some customers also.And the main thing is we are waiting for vista for a long time,but we are not satisfies about the present version.Because in Indian people were can’t changing the computer for vista.I was listen you are preparing the new computer for vista version that was a very good idea, but if you take our computers in exchange offer then we are dare to buy your product also.If you are gave more information about your vista os and your preparing the computer for vista for my people then you get the amazing scales in my country also.One thing i want to tell you that is exchange offer must be improved scles in my country;

  6. I happen to be VERY camera shy and let’s say for example I have got a 500GB hard disk drive, in two years time after installing the operating system of course, I will never have used more than about 20GB of the hard disk drive space! Also, i’ve never received a score better than C+ in English throughout my entire life so far! :D
