It’s that time of the 5 years again… time to scratch your head and attempt to recall what needs to be done to renew that handy little red book that let’s you travel the world (given sufficient money). Fortunately for us, there’s now Google, and relatively well documented procedures available online on how to go […]
In this new series of strange ranty type things, a Slightly Lost Geek (read as me) wanders various places on the planet with somewhat limited resources. The SLG will then tell everyone what the SLG notices about the topic location. Take note that the SLG is from a “reasonably developed” third world country known to […]
This is the result of having 5 pots (characters) and 2.5 lids (hours)… with a storyline that is some sort of a amalgam of how many Michael Bay moments you can fit in and a dash of a comic book storyline (you know… black embossed cover with white bag). I won’t say that the movie […]
As I opened my eyes and everything slowly became less of a blur, shoulder height crops that appeared to be… corn came into view. It seemed like a fairly bright night thanks to the moonlight, and that same moonlight helped make it apparent that I was sleeping on a tar road in between fields of […]
Malaysians know Singapore as that sterile plot of land at the Southern tip of Peninsular Malaysia, while the rest of the world (that knows of Singapore) knows Singapore as that dot that is quite close to an unknown point on the equator.

A little too close for comfort. My thoughts go out to those even remotely related or involved with the tragic MH17 flight of 17th July 2014.
There “may” be some downtime from Friday (25th) to Saturday (26th) depending on where you are. The server is being… relocated. Update: The server has been moved… and thanks to the magic of CloudFlare, it appears that there’s absolutely no downtime.
I had a somewhat interesting experience the other day. The interesting bit about it was, that as far as I knew, I was not under the influence of any drug or psychotropic substance. My initial thoughts when I noticed what was occurring, was that the experience was very much similar to spacing out while under […]
After much waiting (and hefty donations to ParcelForce aka British Royal Mail), I’ve finally got my hands on the first (hopefully of many) Jolla device here in Malaysia. Here are my initial thoughts on the device… It feels fairly hefty (because it is), but it feels good. At least it feels like you’ve got a […]
