Xbox World Dominion

This past year has definitely been a transitional phase for Microsoft. Apparently the war chest is being put to good use with deals finalized with AOL, Sun and now EA.

If you don’t have an Xbox and have held out for various reasons, perhaps now would be the best time to invest in one. Aside from the best online service, including upcoming support for video chat, the Xbox does have one of the most complete game system chain : from developers, to end users to third party providers.

If it’s on another console, consider that it’s a stolen idea from the Xbox.

Albert Schatz

I just talked to Albert Schatz – co-discoverer of streptomycin, an antibiotic that is used to treat tuberculosis. His story and journey to find streptomycin is amazing and if you have the time I’d recommend reading the following article from Guardian Unlimited.

Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day

Dear Mum
This is a small note just to say thank you for everything that you’ve given me and everything that I’m yet to learn from you.

Thank you for being Mum

Shenandoah Getaway

I just returned from a getaway trip to Shenandoah and must say that I have returned truly spiritually blessed.

Things I learnt on the trip:

– Remember to remember the answered prayers
– Remember the reason for having and being able to share with Christians
– Remember reason, memory, faith even when spiraling downward

Things I wish I could have done on the trip:

Rafting down the Shenandoah river. Thought it’s only a grade 2, I imagine the scenic beauty would have been truly worth it. On the whole, I would definitely recommend the Angler, Drifter or Paddler cabins. They come fully equipped with all the luxuries of life (AC, comfortable beds) but don’t have the distractions of email and media.
