Days at work and sleepless nights

Let me begin by letting you know that this is my very first blog from my Nokia (wow, it just predicted that I was about to type 'Nokia') Lumia 920. I am already so impressed by it that I am trying to do all the work that I can do without turning on my desktop by this little powerful machine.
The past 1.5 years at Noxel had been really wonderful and hectic at the same time. The past three weeks however I had been working my ass off up to the limits. Sleepless nights programming and designing and planning. Been handling my department, which handles two of our most ambitious projects. Apart from that I have been working under direct supervision of my manager to propose the complete next generation network package to one of our big clients, a 4 block 14 story automated hotel. There are side projects beside all the big things we are doing too. About three 2,3 story houses, partially automated. Well that's too much boring stuff for you to read.
Have you ever noticed when you are too sleepy at work or while watching a movie but get extra energy out of nowhere? When I started to write the blog, I was sleepy as hell, but now I just cant stop shouting out my 'brain fart'. Its 12am and I have only slept five hours in the past 72 hours. So I better go now.

I am high

I am high. I am even high when I am writing this blog. I might not be able to remember what I said at the beginning of the blog, at the end of the blog. and I am trying so hard to write like it has been written right.

Here are the circumstances of being high. This is my very first experience of being high for a long period of time. I forget what I did in the past few minutes. I live in the moment. Like the dog who is sitting beside me. I am so afraid that I might forget why would I have to write a blog.

The momentary feeling: I am trying very hard to get the diary right, as I am so high in the sky.

These are what happened while I was drunk and high, as much as I can remember:

I drank too hard. Vodka and a German beer. My colleague started to sing and I started to call my friend in the UK. We talked. I remember that I told him: "Please record this piece, you won't regret it." "We could use it in our research of understanding the human brain. While I perform an experiment on myself. " I said.

I can concentrate on what I want. At time I get so intensely into something that I can easily say I am into it, totally.

My colleague and friend whispered something. Something about going home and that he can drive and if he doesn't go back, he would be murdered by his girl friend. While I was leaving Alireza's place I saw two of us in the lift. while I decided to go back to the house. Salman was singing. We kept drinking.

I was afraid that I might get lost if I go back with a drunk guy. I remembered to take my key holder and my cells. How could I remember all that without remembering when I even start to write this blog while my girlfriend is sleeping and I am writing this blog while I am so high I can't even see the keyboard properly.

I just started to self-correct my blog. Woo getting high is so good.... I told my friend on the phone to record me. and I have to go back to my colleagues. I forgot. I like being high. Oh I went back to the house because I was not ready to to lose this nice feeling  the feeling of not being able to remember anything. To care for anybody. To think about the past and the future.

One scene I remember seeing in my dreams. The planet earth. The photo on the on the TV while playing DVD tracks. So calming, so relaxing. And I have to go. I am ready to go now, to sleep beside my girl friend. the one who stayed home while I had fun with my friends.

I am sleepy. Oh I recorded a few moments on the actions. I kept them to study on. I don't even remember what I just said [wrote] was about. Even though I am high. I can figure out the errors I make while writing a blog in a "high" state. Oh I am high. I am not drunk. Oh human brain, a brain which can figure out itself. Magic of evolution.

Thoughts on Apple!

This might seem more like personal view but I'm sure I somehow share the same view with other tech savvies. Apple has been acting so wild towards the other phone manufacturers lately. I'd like to remind you all what Steve Jobs said about Google software on Apple devices in D8:

"Just because we're competing with somebody doesn't mean we have to be rude"

Well, Steve, I think you kind of not really mean what you said. You played rude on Adobe Flash (plus your own customers who used to watch flash videos on your own mobile devices) and now you are defaming other competitors? You were rude towards Flash because you thought they do not comply with Open Standards, security and performance, etc. Adobe products are proprietary but same goes with Mac right? Who are you to decide what your customers have to use? its a complete dictatorship (for the people who don't know what they are buying. The ones who know and buy, might have accepted you as their dictator already) Mac is not even open enough to let the security vendors make software for it. There are tons of viruses on mac but people just don't know about it because they are not being informed, there is no security warning of any kind. And I think I know why Apple doesn't want security software on its systems. Because it will affect the performance and that’s what they are afraid of even if it costs the customers their privacy.

Apple was shocked when they saw their engineering genius antenna design failed. They released an update, making it look like a simple miscalculation issue. Its even worse if it is a simple miscalculation, then how could we possibly be sure that they got the whole Mac OS right?! but anyway, If the problem on other phones was serious, people would have noticed them already. Apple's last attempt was attacking the new Motorola Droid X:

As you can see, this person have to hold the phone so tight to get the signal drop. I'm wondering who will hold a phone so tight like that! and look at this:

This guy holds his iPhone 4 perfectly like any human being would and he gets a drop. nice work Apple, you even made a whole webpage (recently removed by Apple cowards. It now redirects to their signal testing facilities) on this. Yes if we don't want it, we don't buy it. thats what we'd do, we would tell the others about the consequences of going for an Apple product too. The fact is, we just cannot rely on Apple anymore, yes technology changes and sometimes changes aren't so good, we can never fully trust technology but how about Steve Jobs as a human? Can we count on his words? The fact is while he was advertising for the device he stressed on the antenna and the flawless design, but after 2 weeks, "A cool engineering design" transforms into "We aren't perfect. Phones aren't perfect." (Youtube link) You go down fine, why take others down with you? But maybe you thought aren't going down because you are giving out an iPhone cover for free!!

I have had a chance to technically work with both Mac and Linux (Fedora and Ubuntu) lately. and guess what. from the technical stand. I'd go for Linux. It has all the same flaws as Mac does but, at least it gives me customization, free software, etc. i have to say this here for the people who don't know me, I am a big Microsoft Windows fan and I'd always be (I don't think Microsoft would screw up in my lifespan) I just made a comparison between Mac and Linux.

I don't think they'll get away with it. They will lose their fans, and for sure will lose their fans-to-be. I am pretty sure there are many others who were considering buying iPhone but after seeing Apple trying to cover their flaws with ruthless attacks on other competitors, they might reconsider. Apple never dared to make "PC vs Mac" ads anymore since the release of Windows 7. Microsoft struck back with its technology (not defaming a single competitor). Sooner or later one of these phone manufacturers will strike back too.

The new supercomputer fuel, Beer !

It is 5:26am Malaysian time right now. I'm going to blog a note which some may consider a blog, a voice that comes from the bottom of my heart (I believe my last sentence was too emotional!)

After drinking 2.5 cans of dutch beer, n discussing my topic of interest with my friends, I just figured out [or i confirmed] that our nation (Iranians) are not as stupid and traditional as I thought before. Even though with my talks with my other group of atheist friends, we some how assumed 98% of the population [of Iranians] as twats, it turns out that I (we) might be wrong! [see comments]

There were ideas about the origin of universe, the religion and how bullshit it is, science and how it might eat up all of us (human beings) with its advancements and etc, which was continuously debated and argued among us.

Yeah. I might have to obtain my PhD degree while I'm drunk. The sparkling ideas turn out to struck my mind only (well 50% of the times) when I'm drunk! It's always been like this... as the readers of this blog might be already aware of. A good friend once said: "If you (me) and Mohammad (Mani) keep on talking, we will some how come up with the unified law of physics and the origin of universe !"

Anyway, our discussion with my friends was all about the humans, the religion, stupidity, technology, science and the consequences of scientification! We might survive, or we might all die (credit to Terminator and dozens of other Hollywood creations) or maybe nature kills us.

The main thing I'm going to point out here is that, I figured out, when drunk, we live a more happy happy life that we do in our sober time. We can concentrate more on our ideas and defend them with a little more strength.

While drunk with only a 2.5 cans of beer which you really can not call it being drunk, I could concentrate more on what I thought and what I did, I could think better, more logic and more reasonable.

There were so many things going on on my mind, my relationship, my future, my dad's business which I would otherwise ignored or at least would have thought of distinctively in time ! I wondered how I managed to handle so much processing and so much data simultaneously ! Perhaps this is the power of beer !

I'm Out!

My Blogs on Yahoo 360 ...

No More

Back again after such a long time. Its maybe one or two months since my last blog entry. Bunch of new things have happened but lets continue the last blog. Hope the time and my works are arranged in a way that i can compose more updated blogs here.

The last stand of my inner arrogance. It was defeated by a force of outer attraction. Attraction towards what? Towards not being alone would be the best match to solve the confusion equation. After struggling so much for days, it just came by itself. people always told me, the right time will come one day, when it has to come. Maybe their predictions turned out to be correct. So many times my fingers touched those telephone buttons, and the calls went through. a couple of times it didn't but still. I'm not supposed to take it in my counting. The fight within still continues however, its much lesser than before. it has maybe changed its shape. Yea, the war between the feelings have a different shape now. How long its gonna last?

Tried to put the past behind me, forget all the bad memories and do this one right. Still working on the foundation though. But yea... Let me say this one. I no longer have that tickling in my mind. At least I'm more confident. I no longer wake up in the morning and think about what I should have had done in the past. At least all my concern is about the future. It really helps. Even if there are some other anxieties accompanying my promise, but its not noticeable in a disturbing way.

But there is still something, a new-shaped problem of the past with no solution yet. Its big. Tried to solve it in the past but I wasn't successful. How to deal with that?

Fight With In

It all started again today when I woke up at 9:07am. That was the first thing struck my mind. It was all the same yesterday. And it will last till the night I'm sure. Unless I can fight it and defeat this thing. is the fight necessary? Do I really have to fight it? Or I just sit in my place and face me being defeated by it? how would it feel? Does it feel nice? Would it be a sweet defeat or a bitter one?

Its just the repeating of a same game I have each time I go to a new place, new time. Now this ego of mine doesn't let me pick up the phone and dial. The same ego which never let me open my mouth before. I don't know how long I'll last with it. Sometime, someone has to break it. That someone could be me but I need some assistance on this. When will they come? Do I have to wait for them? Is that all about? Wait, wait, wait? The fear of doing it alone myself is killing me from the other side. Not brave enough in this case. No no.

Its all because of you. You did it to me when I had no idea of being into it. But I was. I think. I don't if I was or not. What I know now is I don't even know how it tastes. If I knew the taste, maybe I wouldn't have taken that poison again. Or I'd drink it with all the sweetness people say it has and get intoxicated the way I want to, then it wouldn't be bitter anymore. The thing is i don't know how it smells, or tastes, so i can't even say if I have already drunk with it or not! I put all the blame on you, you. Maybe not only you. Maybe myself, my beliefs. The beliefs that made me immune to that poison for some time and I was just a loser all way long, against others of your kind.

But it feels good at times...Not of course the confusion, the feeling of being away form it, just a feeling. hope to never get into it. I'll see how I will deal with the problem of mine. I think I have to spend some braveness on it. In this case. it might work, it might not. But I'd at least say, I tried. Right?...feels better now...haaah.

Just feel like a real

Classes started 5 days ago, on 18th June. Still going to classes. My mind is busy as usual. Thinking. So many things happened this week and lately in my life. Understood so many things about life and just feel like being in a real one. Like everyone else. Well not exactly like them....

This world which we live in. I feel like the people never actually believe this world. Nothing is serious, nothing is bothered. Why? Our body bypasses the energies, the life.

Whatever happens is for a reason, humans not only don't bother about their life, but to the advancement of technology too. My concern is more to third world countries in this topic.

So what I think is, maybe i just have to be like them. Maybe that's the real thing that i was looking for...

The Project "Smart"

The Project "Smart" works on the fact that intelligent processors have the ability to get affected by foreign injected feeds. And become unpredictable due to fatal system failure which is because of massive dose fed to them. The system not only affects itself, but also tries to affect the other intelligences.

Details of the project are classified documentary. Please be patient and read the successive posts for more info.

Unix celebrates its 1234567890 th second

It won't be the epochalypse of 2038, but 3:31 p.m. PST on Friday offers a moment notable enough for some Unix fans to raise a toast.
That's when Unix computer clocks will reach the time of 1234567890--1.2 billion seconds elapsed from January 1, 1970, the official beginning of the Unix epoch. The clock is used not just by Unix, but also by Linux, Java, JavaScript, Mac OS X, and various other technologies.
Various Web sites exist to help mark the occasion. Cool Epoch Countdown, which actually counts up, is the first I saw. 1234567890 Day helpfully includes links to a few parties to honor the occasion.
I'm amused by arbitrary milestones whose significance stems from the mathematical consequences of humans' 10 fingers. At least birthdays are anchored to physical reality--the actual revolution of Earth around the Sun--but when your car odometer passes 100,000 miles, it's only significant psychologically and perhaps in relation to your warranty. All the digits neatly in ascending order on a Unix clock is particularly silly given that the computers marking 1234567890 Day aren't even counting in base 10.
But hey, there's nothing wrong with a good excuse for a party, so you won't hear any complaints from me.
Just so long as those Unix sysadmins get back to work and patch things up so the computer world doesn't grind to a halt in 2038, when today's clocks would run out of positive 32-bit integers!
