While roaming through my inbox I saw this email;

Subject:         Possible interruption in website service
Date:        Fri, 24 Oct 2003 14:04:41 -0500

Dear member,

We would like to advise you of the possibility of an interruption in the service of the website sometime later today. This possibility, although slim, exists because of a pending solar blast from the sun expected to reach Earth at about 3 p.m. EDT and its effects could last 12 to 18 hours. The solar blast should affect neither the site nor its server directly, but could affect Satellites, pagers, cell phones, electrical grids and by extension some of the telecommunications infrastructure upon which the website and the Internet on a whole are dependent.

Please visit cnn report for more information on this topic.

Thanks for your continued support of the site,

The Support Team - Jamaica's Tech Portal

I found this quite funny. Considering that one hour before the world is about to end, I'm getting emails. Even with the possibility of cellphones going out of service and satellites falling from the sky. Of course I'm exaggerating it abit but it's still funny.

Hanging around

written by owen, published 2003-Sep-01, comment

I had one of those weekends. You know the one where a girl invites you somewhere and you go and it's all like crazy?
I had nothing better to do still (considing that my computer was without hardrive :( ). Keeping my evenings free usually is my top priority. That and waking up early in the morning which never seems to happen because I stay out late at night and or hangout in front of my computer doing nothing. It can't even be decribed as hanging out still cause I don't hang. I don't know how to.

I've started listening to music on internet radio recently. Mostly trance, mood, techno slash whatever I can find. It appeals to me more if it's trapped in 50 megabyte mp3 files. Ordered by date, with nice little playlists in text files. But I listen none the less.
The further it is away, the better. The music doesn't even have to be in english. The less talking the better. Most of it can't even be found locally, in any CD outlet, drug store or otherwise. Songs such as; One More Day by Floris, or tif by ilo.
Probably the best thing to come out since cassette, portable radio players and the apple ipod.

Today I was browsing Chinese photography at 21mm and Largely pictures of life in china at street level. But enjoyable none the less.

Mars Attacks

written by owen, published 2003-Aug-14, comment

Ever notice how significant events seem to happen everyday? Which in fact will never happen again, ever. However meaningless it may be to you or anybody else. It just goes on and on and on - like internet radio.

Probably at this very moment some city somewhere is without their regular electricity supply or internet access.

The wandering of the planets brings Mars closer to Earth this month than at any time in nearly 60,000 years. It will be a last-chance proposition for all alive today: Mars won't be as close again until August 28, 2287.
