Nighthawk KAI-3 Keyboard

The other day while just strolling past some shops in Sim Lim Square, something caught my eye – A cheap, backlit keyboard!

As a gamer, a backlit keyboard is VERY useful. Even better that it is “cheap”.  By “cheap”, I mean SGD 50 bucks or less. Now, last year I bought myself a Logitech G105 keyboard and was actually pleased with it. It was SGD 65 and I already was thinking it was cheap, because backlit keyboards are usually over SGD 100.

Physically, the Logitech keyboard is fine. It’s still working, and all the lights are fine. However, after 1 year of constant use, WASD keys have been worn down and now it’s just a big huge hole there where the blue light shines through. Honestly I was not even thinking of getting a new keyboard until I happened to walk past this stall, and saw this – Nighthawk KAI-3.

Survivor Diary – Day #1

It’s been almost 5 hours since the End Of The World, as predicted by the Mayan calendar. Almost to the minute, the Mayans predicted the disappearance of the sun, local time 7:11pm. For posterity’s sake, I recorded the final moments of The World, just before it ended.

As you can see, I lost connection to the Internet!

Slowly but surely, my friends disappeared off MSN one by one. The skies got darker and darker. I went to my cupboards and took stock of what food I had – couple of canned food, loaf of bread, and some frozen meat. Good thing the electricity and water still flow – the people at PUB must have died off suddenly. I checked my phone – ok service is still on. The people at the telephone company must have suffered the same fate too!

I opened up some canned sardines and cooked some rice. This will have to be rationed out. I need to stretch the food as much as I can, and hope I can find more soon.

It’s now midnight… there is no sign of the sun coming back anytime soon. This post-apocalyptic world looks dark and dreary indeed.


ps: in case anyone didn’t know, it’s a humour piece. It’s not meant to be taken seriously.

Kingsoft Office – The Most MS-Compatible Office Suite (So Far)

Everyone knows of Microsoft Office. Yep, that suite of software everyone uses at work, daily. Word, Excel, Powerpoint – these are the 3 names of software that most working adults know.

Also, everyone knows MS Office costs an arm and a leg, simply because it’s used in “the office”, hence it should cost more since businesses can afford it.

Trouble is, MS Office has become so pervasive that everyone is “forced” to use it, even outside of the office. Government forms downloaded off the Internet for you to fill in, for example, would be in MS Word format. You, as a student or a retiree, would need some sort of MS Office-compatible software to read and edit those files. Now, not everybody can afford the huge price tag that MS Office commands, especially for a home-user. Just look at the prices (in US$ no less!) in the picture below:
