Can't Wait For This Year's Team Building

3 Days to Go and it will another Team Building for DG12. But I feel it will be a deja vu, because we will be on the same place as last year. Hopefully this year it is better -- no more heavy rain showers to ruin the scene. And, I got my new camera to waste its space for pictures. :D

I am a Modern, Cool Nerd

I saw Vanie's post about Geeks, Nerds, and Dorks. Whew! At least I am a Nerd instead of a Dork. :PYour result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...78 % Nerd, 83% Geek, 35% DorkModern, Cool NerdFor The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligen…

Review: Romantic Programmer

While doing my stumble this morning I saw this blog post about love lines used by romantic programmers. Being a code reviewer I can't help myself but to comment on some lines -- just for fun. :P


First, the title does not describe a romantic programmer in general, maybe it should be renamed to "Romantic Java Programmer".

"You are my initializer: without you, my life would point to nothing (null)."

--> It is not true all the time that it would point to nothing(null).


"I am a BufferedReader. You input meaning into my life."

--> Well you can use other readers and still have meaning.


"You are my semicolon; always present in everything I do."

--> Who said so.


"If I were a method, you must be my parameter, because I will always need you."

--> There is a concept of void parameter, which you won't need any parameter.


"My love is a for loop without the increment operator-- infinitive, non-terminating, and difficult to stop once i…

Good Old Fashioned Loverboy

Having studied some theories about "Needs", how could I reach the self-actualization level. Now I'm in need of relationship to level up. :P

Good Old Fashioned Loverboy - Jason Mraz

I can dim the lights and sing you songs full of sad things
We can do the tango just for two
I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings
Be your valentino just for you

Ooh love - ooh loverboy
What're you doin' tonight, hey boy
Set my alarm, turn on my charm
That's because I'm a good old-fashioned lover boy

Ooh let me feel your heartbeat (Grow faster, faster)
Ooh ooh can you feel my love heat
Come on and sit on my hot-seat of love
And tell me how do you feel right after-all
I'd like for you and I to go romancing
Say the word - your wish is my command

Ooh love - ooh loverboy
What're you doin' tonight, hey boy
Write my letter
Feel much better
And use my fancy patter on the telephone

When I'm not with you
I think of you always
(I miss those long hot summer nights)
I miss you
When …

This is a nice song for enjoying my summer time in Japan with Hanabi. Sayang, I was not able to see the beach again this summer.

Your Working Style

I was doing my nightly stumble and I saw some of Vannie's post.

http://vanyei.multiply.com/journal/item/14/What_is_Your_Working_Style

Here is my working style:

You are friendly, adaptable and a realist. You rely on what you see, hear, and know first-hand. You good-naturedly accept and use the facts around you. You look for a satisfying solution instead of trying to impose any "should" or "must" of your own. You are sure a satisfying solution will turn up once you have grasped all the facts. You solve problems by being adaptable, and often can get other to adapt, too. People generally like you well enough to consider any compromise you suggest. You are unprejudiced open-minded, and tolerant of most everyone-- including yourself. You take things as they are and thus may be very good at easing a tense situation and pulling conflicting factions together. You are actively curious about objects, scenery, activities, food, people, or anything new presented to yo…
