Well….not really a madness. LOL just that there was quite a lot of movies out this month that are worth watching. First there was the new Iron Man movie, then the new Star Trek movie and the upcoming Fast & Furious 6.
Watched Iron Man 3 on the first day it came out. I didn’t attend the midnight launch, but I watched it the night of the release. I really enjoyed the movie. I especially like the scene where all the suits came to save the day. It was a shame that he had to destroy all of it at the end of the movie. Such a waste of technology. Not that he can’t make new ones in the future. He also finally decided to remove the shrapnel that has been threatening his life thus he no longer needs the chest piece in his chest. I don’t really read the comics, so I can’t really compare it with the comics.
Star Trek Into the Darkness was another movie in May which I went to watch just tonight. I enjoyed it very much but the story line was sorta of predictable. Like why would J.J. Abrams kill off one of the main characters from the original crew of the series. Also I never would have imagined a starship is able to survive the pressures of being under all that water. I guess with shields up it can. But in the movie the shield was not even up yet the ship did not implode.
The next movie would e Fast & Furious 6 which isn’t out for another week. From the trailers it would look good and all, but the franchise seems to have evolve from just street racing to a full story driven movie involving a tank? A tank race would be pretty cool. Like twisted metal style lol.
These aren’t reviews yet. just felt like making this post before I go sleep.
That is all…
Edit: Sigh… End up losing in Overtime 5-4 when they were up 4-1 with under 10 minutes to go in the Third Period. They could have won and be heading to the second round of the playoffs, instead they let their ego get to them thinking there’s no possible way for them to lose. Looks like it backfired on them in the last minute. They really need to work on getting the puck out of their zone as quickly as possible. They always fumble at that task and allow the opposing team more chances to score. If you keep doing that eventually one will always end up in the back of the net.
Got off the phone earlier today after I saw on Rogers website that they’re offering Unlimited internet for an additional fee of $10 a month on top of your existing service. Although I ended up sacrificing 10Mbps in speed, in return I gain the ability to use as much bandwidth as I want. Having higher speed is great and all. However, if there is a cap to limit how much you use it becomes pretty useless. Since I always went over the 150GB limit. Whether it’s to download or stream videos, paying $10 dollars more monthly for unlimited was a no brainer.
I looked at the new Limit. The new Unlimited shows that I can use approximately 970 000GB of bandwidth a month or 970TB of data a month. Going to download me the entire archive of the internet. HAHA
Decided it was finally time to get out of the 90s and into the 10s? 21st Century that is. All my computers are Gigabit ready but the backbone of the whole network is still Fast Ethernet, 100Mbps. Even the wires were wired with CAT5 cables. This was done way back in early 2003-2004 Era when it was my dad who was the computer expert around the house. Since then, the network infrastructure hasn’t really changed much beyond adding Ethernet Switches, which were unfortunately also Fast Ethernet only. This worked very well for just surfing the internet, as even now there is no internet connection speed fast enough and affordable enough to break the 100Mbps limit. I know Bell Fibe and Rogers Fiber Optics connection can reach speeds of 150Mbps to 250Mbps but those are well over $150+ a month hence not affordable for the average household. Not to mention they aren’t even available in my area yet.
For now I am using Rogers Hi-Speed Extreme. which is 45Mbps down and 5Mbps up. The bottleneck was with the internal network obviously. Transferring large files was limited to 100Mbps which is roughly 11MB/s which back then was okay, now it’s not very acceptable. Especially for HD streaming and large file transfers between computers. I have a central back up server which all the other computers back up to. Which if you think about it. Large amounts of data is transferring to that one machine at 11MB/s which is slow as hell… Gigabit network has gone down in price over the years.
So I picked up 3 TP-Link 5-Port Gigabit switch for 17 dollars each and a 75ft CAT 6 cable. At first I wired only the Switches to see if it improved the speeds. Which it did not. Then I realized that the cable to my room is only CAT 5 and not even CAT 5e. Luckily I bought the CAT 6 cable in case I needed it. And it looked like I did after all. Wired up the CAT6 cable to the switch and CAT5es to the computer (which I will need to replace soon, but for now it should suffice). The Network transfer speeds went from 11MB/s max speed for 100Mbps network to 40MB/s or 320Mbps which is a huge performance increase.
The next step would be to replace the remaining CAT 5 and CAT5e cables over to CAT6 for the faster speeds and more reliable connections. After that Finally replace the routers for a faster connection. They aren’t even 802.11N. I’m most likely going to buy 802.11AC routers for the potentially gigabit wireless speeds. But those are still pretty pricey for the moment. Gotta save up money.
I decided to rewatch Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny. I’ve already finished Gundam Seed and now working my way on Episode 7 of Gundam Seed Destiny. Gundam Seed came out way back in 2003 and Destiny followed shortly afterwards in 2004. Since then there have been two other Gundam series anime that followed; Gundam 00 Seasons 1 and 2 and Gundam AGE.
I still really like Gundam Seed and I wish they had made a third series to take place after the events of Destiny.
After watching Gundam Seed, there is something that puzzles me. In the beginning of the show they explain how ZAFT forces created and deployed countless Neutron Jammmers on Earth which prevents any sort of nuclear fission reaction from occurring and the show never mentions if they created nuclear fusion.
If neutron jammers cancels the effect of nuclear reaction through fission, how was it possible for Earth Alliance’s Archangel to be powered by 6 Thermonuclear reactors if technically they should have been prevented from creating a reaction in the reactor. They can’t use Nuclear Weapons or Nuclear Power on Earth but they had no issues putting in a Nuclear generator on a Battleship. And not just one, but 6 main reactors and 2 for thrusters.
I know by the end of the series it showed that ZAFT had managed to create a neutron jammer canceller device to counteract the effects of the jamming devices. But by then Earth Alliance shouldn’t have had technical specs on it until they were leaked Rau Le Cruset (Or however you spell his name). This doesn’t really make sense, but I guess plot holes aren’t suppose to. lol
Also with the exception to Wing Zero Custom, Freedom and Strike Freedom are both my favourite Gundams in the series. With Strike Freedom beating original Freedom due to it’s massive upgrade in weaponry and other technical advancements of course.
