project almanac

What would you do if you were a smart man surrounded by equally smart friends, but your father had been smarter than you -- as in he had built a time machine and you found it after his death?

Yep. My thought actually. Go back in time to buy lottery. At first it was fun: the lotto money was more than enough to help mother with her mortgage, hold a party, buy pretty clothes, etc. The time machine also enabled them to go to a music festival that they have missed, having the main singer dedicating a song for one of them, etc.

But soon things get ugly. Like the movie Butterfly Effects, small things led to disasters that took lives of many.

What about you? What would you do if you're in charge of a time machine?

For me, what I would do is going back in time and tell the teenage version of me to stop worrying over small stuff, that everything's gonna be alright.

But wait, I couldn't do that, because I would disappear if I did. This is an obstacle set by the movie Project Almanac, whoever doing time travel is not allowed to be seen by his/her younger self.

I guess I should be content by leaving her a mIRC chat instead.

By the way, throughout the movie there's not a single man uttering his desire to embark on a journey to the future. Maybe they're all sure the world would end in the near future. Or this time machine was only capable of moving backwards, the one with the ability to go to the future's being sold separately?

Just like Ken. Ken came in another box.

Also I haven't found the exact meaning of 'almanac'. I remember looking this word up the internet many years ago, only to end up on a Wikipedia page about Benjamin Franklin's almanac. Google wasn't so omnipotent back then.

Needless to say, I gave up.

who knows?


... "I like onions on my hamburger"... that person gets you a burger and all it is, is an onion slapped between two hamburger buns... Yes, a woman may want a guy who treats her well. But that doesn't mean that every guy who treats her well will just automatically get a date.
-- Lauren Campbell's answer to Why do some women say they want a man who treats them right but then when someone who come around they deny them? --

During our group discussion on WhatsApp, a friend of me stated that she's afraid to open her morning paper for she didn't want to read either Dahlan or Ahok was being shot to death by a hitman.

This was about a year ago, when Dahlan Iskan was still working as a politician. Both were hated, openly and secretly, by their rivals, those that are regarded by many Indonesian commonners as corrupt politicians.

Later Dahlan chose another path outside of politics, and Ahok rose to power as Jakarta's incumbent governor.

So are they really 'clean' politicians? Dahlan was accused of corruption a few months ago, but media sided with him, like most of commonners do. Or should I say, most commonners do because media sided with him?

What is more unfortunate as a person with a name that is considered unique in your country, working in a group of massive companies of which computers are interconnected, than to have IFrameRefI virus spread from your computer?

Add to that naming your computer with XXX-PC, where XXX is your name.

What exactly does this virus called IFrameRefI do? It assumes the name of the source computer, dabs '.eml' on its end, then duplicates itself into different folders. On that computer and on every other computers that are within reach of the infected computer, a.k.a all commputers in the network. Suddenly all computer bearers in said group of companies know your name, and not in a good way.

Note: You can take it down with Windows Defender bootable. I will write about it later, when I'm not too busy digging a hole under my desk hiding myself hoping to just disappear.
