21st-Oct-2010 11:17 pm - Toaste r Survey [surveys//memes]
Please take a moment to take my survey. It's for a class project which involves designing a new toaster. The whole process of researching, getting user feedback, and sketching and developing of ideas are important. You don't have to have a toaster or use a toaster to take this survey, though you'll be limited to only answer the first two questions. I want to get a feel for how many people use a toaster, how many don't and if they do use a toaster, I'd like to know some other things about their toaster usage.

28th-Jan-2008 10:14 am - Faster Computer! Woot! [miscellaneous]
BubblegumMy computer has been ultra slow for quite a while. I wondered why it was so slow since I ran the Disk Defragmenter and emptied my private data in Firefox. Then I watched this video on YouTube, and realized I had a ton of Temp files, so I deleted all the ones that could be deleted, and emptied my recycle bin which had exactly 2000 files not including subdirectories inside folders. Yeah I know. I should have done this before, and I should probably do it more often, but I always leave stuff there in case I want to retrieve it again. I also downloaded Faster Fox. I don't know if that helped much, but overall my computer is faster. Oh yeah and I also organized my files in My Computer since that was a mess. Now I feel like I've accomplished something.

Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention that after deleting temp files, I discovered an easier way of deleting unused files. I could have totally used Disk Cleanup. Also, there were other ways to make your computer faster here. I thought that article was very helpful.

If you have any tips on making your computer faster, please share them with me.

Weather:   55°F to 46°F, clear with a chance of showers, humidity: 60%, Wind: S at 16 mph
What does winter mean to you?
Winter is a time of darkness and slumber. Fresh fallen snow blanket the ground with its imminent coldness. Footsteps leave their impressions in the snow. Trees are bare skeletons save a few, with their branches mangled yet delicate as sparkling clear icicles adorn them. Darkness comes sooner, engulfing the grey never ending sky. All is silent outside as no birds are to be seen.

Inside, people sip hot chocolate, curled up by the fireplace. Christmas trees are often seen, decorated with ornaments with presents below. Strings of light frame the houses. People are jolly and sing Christmas carols. The story of Old St. Nick is passed from generation to generation.

Happy Moments
  1. Being accepted into the college of my choice, also with a decent major I think I'll like.
  2. Receiving scholarships
  3. Being awarded computer student of the year
  4. Visiting friends and relatives in China, and also visiting scenic places there
  5. Moving into a new home
  6. Being involved in college clubs and organizations esp. Alpha Omega Epsilon ^_^
  7. Getting a big sister in A.O.E and a big brother in AAA

Sad Moments
  1. Missing my friends and family back home
  2. Making friends seemed hard at first
  3. At times the college experience was overwhelming and it seemed as though I didn't have enough time for everything
  4. I never had a strong relationship with my roommate from the start, and she's moving out next semester
  5. I didn't enjoy Chemistry class (the labs were fun...but the lectures / discussion sessions were mostly time wasting because it was taught by a TA, and this is the first semester he's teaching the class)
  6. There always seemed to be too much homework especially on days when I had five classes in a row
  7. Walking to classes on cold rainy days
I tried thinking of ten sad moments but I can't think of any more. I'd say this has been a pretty enjoyable year over all. I'd like to wish everyone an auspicious New Year where happy moments outweigh the sad ones. Go 2007!
