Loading my blog is a pain in the butt.

I have been posting huge screen shots of animes, Jdramas and US tv series on my blog. And some visitors have complained about how long it takes to load my blog. Well, to those that complained : I am very sorry that my blog has hueg screen shots and and I am sorry that it takes time to load the page. Very sorry.

I will still continue to post picture and screen shots. Besides, my blog is somehow turning into a variation of a photoblog, but no photo and only screen shots from tv series and animes. You may call it a Screen-shotsblog or something like that. :)

Anyone in favor of me to continue posting screen shots, please drop a comment. However, I will still continue with the hueg screen shots thingy whatever the outcome is! ;)

I believe in God.

I believe in God. Sometimes, when I try to do somethings, there would always be something that would make it go wrong or unable to start doing it. Later, a change of style/ideas, and the whole thing started smoothly. It happened just a while ago. I was typing out a new blog entry and when I try to publish it, I can't seem to publish it because my internet connection can't seem to access!!(Other websites worked). Several re-tries later, and I still can't publish the blog entry!! So, I decided to reboot the computer but I forgot to save the blog entry!!! After my computer rebooted, I only realized that I didn't save the blog entry into notepad. And the irony of it is that is working again!!! I can't published that entry that I lost because I didn't/couldn't/forgotten to save it.

Maybe later I will try to do that blog entry again, and this time probably with some changes here and there and then maybe I can finally published it.

Ignore the example above, since people missunderstood it. Here is another example : It was February 14th(Not this year's Valentine's Day). There was this girl that I wanted to give a Valentine's present/gift/whatever you all call it. On that day, she was working, so I planned to drop in at her work place. Before I could start do anything, my handphone rang and my mom asked me to do something for her, so I did. Whole morning gone. So, I though I could go in the afternoon. My dad rang. He wanted me to go over to his school, which is about 40km away. So I went. Whole afternoon gone. Evening and my mom was back from work, she asked me to do something again! Before I know it, it was already night, I did meet up with the girl, but she won't accept my Valentine's gift/present/whatever. Maybe she was disappointed I didn't go early or something.
(Note: Don't say that my parents conspired to make me busy for the whole day, because my mom and my dad doesn't know about my private life/love life/whatever you call it. And they still don't!)

So, I believe God is always showing me the way to do things correctly or trying to prevent me from doing something. I think it has been that way all my life.


Wah, isn't that kind of extreme? So when TMnet's DNS prevents you from accessing, you don't call up TMnet guys got support, but call up God to 'show you the right way'.

Not insulting your 'God', but I believe that's a little extreme.
uzyn | Homepage | 04.24.05 - 1:53 pm | #

Uzyn missundertood the meaning of my entry. What I meant is that in process of trying to publish that entry, I hit a brick wall, or you can say God,or someone or something is trying to prevent me from publishing that entry. So, I ended up publishing this entry instead. I also was saying "that entry that I originally intended to publish was never meant to be". It was as if God didn't want me to publish it yet or want me to change something. I have had this type of situation before. I try to do something, but somehow there are forces trying to prevent me from doing it.

And maybe you might say it is "extreme", but when everyone else is able to access perfectly while I can't. What do you want me to think? And it didn't happen once,twice or thrice. It happened MANY TIMES for the past 20 years. And at some point in that time, there is still no internet yet or computers.

Believe it or not, I don't really care.
I am someone that believes in GOD, but I am not going to say that the God I believe in is Buddha, Jesus...etc.
I will only say "God". I don't differentiate which God, I just believe in GOD.
So, please stop saying "Your" God, "my" God or "everyone's" God, because I did not mention or even say which God.
I just say "GOD".

foobar2000 the alternative to Winamp

Foobar2000 is an advanced audio player for the Windows platform. Some of the basic features include ReplayGain support, low memory footprint and native support for several popular audio formats.

* Open component architecture allowing third-party developers to extend functionality of the player
* Audio formats supported "out-of-the-box": WAV, AIFF, VOC, AU, SND, Ogg Vorbis, MPC, MP2, MP3, MPEG-4 AAC
* Audio formats supported through official addons: FLAC, OggFLAC, Monkey's Audio, WavPack, Speex, CDDA, TFMX, SPC, various MOD types; extraction on-the-fly from RAR, 7-ZIP & ZIP archives
* Full Unicode support on Windows NT
* ReplayGain support
* Low memory footprint, efficient handling of really large playlists
* Advanced file info processing capabilities (generic file info box and masstagger)
* Highly customizable playlist display
* Customizable keyboard shortcuts
* Most of standard components are opensourced under BSD license (source included with the SDK)


Note : The screen shot shown here is shown along with the playlist already format-ed by foobar2000 highly customizable playlist display or commonly known as foobar2000 formatting strings.

Yup, most people dislike the interface, because it is bland and looks just like any normal windows in Windows. Well, here is what I think though. Is the interface really important? or is the sound that is produced that is more important? I know Winamp has thousands and thousands of skins, but when you are listening to music and songs while doing something else, skins or not it is not important, that's of course unless someone out there actually listens to music while looking at the Winamp player, is there anyone like that?

Anyway, I don't really care if the interface is dull, bland or even looks like age old windows. What is important is the sound that is produced! Yeah, maybe some people might argue that because Peter (he is the developer of foobar2000) which he was a former freelance contractor for Nullsoft, Peter's Winamp directsound plugin which Winamp used as the default output plugin is(might be) the same as the directsound plugin in foobar2000. Well, I can't say anything about the directsound plugin since I don't use it. I used Kernel Streaming instead. Kernel Streaming or ks for short, honestly it sounds better than the directsound plugin.

Another feature that I like about foobar2000 is that it has "tabbed playlists" (which is something like Firefox's tabbed browsing.

foobar2000 tabs
I can have multiple playlists in foobar2000 which saves me the time to load each playlists one at a time. I just just tabbed to the next playlists with a click of a mouse.

Another feature that foobar2000 has is able to playback audio files from archives! Meaning that you can zip/rar/7z your audio files and foobar2000 can playback from the archives without you having to unzip/unrar/un7z the audio files. In a way it helps free up more space on your computer.

Reason behind the reason aka I don't really need to do this actually!!

I have had people keep on asking me why am I so silly/crazy/stupid/[insert descriptive word] about a movie. For that matter, a highly popular movie : Spiderman the movie.

As I have Rant and bitch about both the Spiderman movie. The comments I received and the nagging questions that is being asked "Why the hell am I being totally adamant about the unlimited web in the movie?"

Here is the reason behind the reason. Believe it or not, I don't care the least bit if you don't believe what I am going to say. Just be clear that it is the truth.

I am so against the "unlimited web" concept because this Hollywood created Spiderman is NOT the Spiderman I grew up with. Most of the classic comics and cartoons character are my childhood friends. They are NOT just fictional characters, to me they are my childhood friends. Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Snoopy, Garfield, The Flintstone, The Jetsons, Scooby Doo and the Scooby gang, Voltron, Thundercats, Space Sheriff Gavan, Kamen Rider Black, Ultraman, Doraemon, He-Man...etc. They are all my childhood friends. Hollywood didn't MUTILATE Superman nor Batman in the movies, but why must they changed Spiderman's mechanical webslinger to "UNLIMITED WEB"? Why?

To other people, they can accept any change because the "Cool" factor is there. It's like "Wow, a superhero movie. The actors are great! The CGI is great! The storyline is great! This is a great movie!".

To me, it is an insult. What that idiotic director did to my friend is unforgivable! The "spirit" of Spiderman got lost in the movie. No one understands how I feel. Not that I blame them. It did not happened to their friend!

For what it is worth, in the first place, I don't really need to give a reason to a reason to all this, but I felt people need to know how differently I felt about it. Besides, being "friends" with fictional characters is commonly known as being "crazy/insane/mad..etc". Well, this "crazy" person is only human. Though, this "crazy" person still has childhood friends and these childhood friends will always be with this "crazy" person till the end of time.

Ah! My Goddess


Actually, I wanted to blog about Tsubasa Chronicle but I haven't watch episode 1 yet. Although I did listen to the ending song which was sang by Goddess Maaya Sakamoto. Anyway, I will blog about Tsubasa Chronicle later when I finish watching episode 1 of it. In the meantime, here is Ah! My Goddess most popular Goddess Belldandy. Please don't let Keiichi Morisato know about this ok?

Results of Renovation of Blog.

Results is, my blog is only 100+ errors away from W3C's valid html standard. It won't be able to get 100% valid html though, since some of the blog add-ons and codes from some blogging tools a spilling out errors when running through the html validator.

Update: Ok, I fixed all the errors and now my blog is Valid XHTML 1.0!

Anyway, that is not the only thing I did to my blog. I also rearranged the links on my sidebar and introduced more categories so that it is easier for people to find the links they want.

Actually, my blog has lots of links linked to useful websites and also fellow bloggers. I know that Keen from found that my links section was indeed useful to him (the Gundam link)! Anyway, I hope my links section will be useful to others that visits my blog!.

Another thing that I did with my blog is that there is a slight layout change (not really noticeable). I removed the use of the <table> tags. Now I use CSS to define the layout of my blog now.(another compliances issue)

Anyway, With all the code cleaning, layout changing, font resizing or something like that, I want to know what you all think about the "minor"? "major"? changes of my blog?

Blogging and I (rev. II)

Let's do this again shall we?

Hello, my name is Kenny Lee Jian Siong. At first, I didn't want to follow the general trend that is now. Blogging. I never want to follow what other people does. I still don't. I only want to be myself. And yet I found out that sometimes I can't be myself. When I want to talk something there is no one to talk to. Everyone I know (my friends) just aren't interested in the things I am interested in. I want to talk about fantasy, possibilities, tv series, animes, anime music, game music..etc things that I am interested in. Before there was blogging, the only venue for me to talk is in online forums. When blogging started to burst into the online scene, I didn't care much about it since I, at that time thinks it's nothing interesting. Then I realized that I could just be talking to myself by blogging. So, I decided to blog not for other people's reading pleasure, but for myself. I found that I could go beyond imagination, beyond thoughts and beyond what I like to do. I could type down countless possibilities and yet not afraid that people would get bored about it. I believe there are people like me out there that like to talk about "possibilities". What is this "possibilities" that I am talking about? To me, I believe that this world is special with countless "possibilities". To other people, I believe the word is call "Fantasy" or to some people, it is just "thinking too much". I also blog because I want to tell people what I don't like. In my real life, I can't tell people I hate this, I hate that. Why? Because no one ever listens to what I said!

The title of my blog is call Beyond Thoughts Dreams [一個夢] (the chinese words means: One Dream).
My Tagline is : Thinking out loud in this impossible yet beautiful world.

And the countless "possibilities" this world holds.

Hello! 我的名叫恳尼李健雄。我本来並不想跟網絡的居民的风格,使用blogging。但是,我還是沒辦法,應為我跟我的朋友跟本就溝通不來。唯一的办法就是用 blogging来自己对自己谈。对了,我很爱谈话但是我想谈的東西更本就不合我的朋友的口味。我爱谈的是幻想神话,電影節目,日本卡通片,日本卡通片的音樂。。等等!不管是故事还是电影裏還是電視裏的,我都想谈。應為我朋友都是比較現實的想法,我根本就談不來和合不來。你們說是不是?一個很想幻想的人,哪能跟現實想法的人談得來哪?還有,我更本就不喜歡聼現代音樂,反而我喜歡聼日本卡通片的音樂。我的朋友就不明白爲什麽我只想聼日本卡通片的音樂,而不聼現代音樂!最後,我"blog"也應為我要跟大家講我本身最討厭的東西。我的朋友根本就沒在意我到底討厭什麽,應為他們根本就沒有聽到我的話!


This is a revision of the original entry "Blogging and I".

Minor Renovating of Blog

I was cleaning up the html codes on my blog. I also rearranged my links and put in more categories to make it a bit neat. However, this is just a minor renovating of my blog. I still have a long way to go in the html department and also the CSS department. Using a html validator, my blog has 600+ html errors and wrong usage of html tags. Before I did the cleaning, my blog had about 1000+ html errors and wrong usage of html tags!!!

Now, although the blog won't load faster than usual, but I think there should be a slight differences or something like that.

Anyway, my blog will be undergoing more renovating over the week. If you see any weirdness on my blog, don't panic. It just mean that I am cleaning up the html codes and experimenting with the html codes to make my blog better. :)

Nightmare at Screamyx, Terrorkom

Image Hosted by

TMnutz on April 7th, gave that announcement. As it turns out, service degradation of its international links to Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Korea, Japan, Thailand and United States was worst than just "slight drop in performance" as claimed by Terrorkom. Everyone in Malaysia is experiencing very slow internet speed. The problems lies at :

1. Asia Pacific Cable Network 2 (APCN2) cable S8S (Philippine - Katong) - near BU4 in segment 8

2.S3 (HongKong - Shanghai) and the ring switch that is being implemented in the interim.

The repairs on S8 will be done today (April 9th) at 20:00hr(Malaysian Time)(hopefully). While the S3 cable will start repairs on the 16th and completion is estimated latest by April 20th!.

Maybe we shouldn't fault Terrorkom for this, because the APCN2 cable isn't their SOLE responsibility, but they in their announcement said that only a SLIGHT drop in performance when in ACTUAL fact it is not just a SLIGHT drop in performance, but a HUGE drop in performance. Since April 7th, loading of websites slowed down to a crawl! Some even timed out before it is finish loading. Downloading speed was around 0.3kb/s to 1kb/s. Although it got better by April 8th, still the download speed and surfing speed was way below the "slight drop in performance" claimed by Terrorkom!

I have to use a temporary workaround to get better surfing speed. The workaround is to use a proxy that doesn't link to to Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Korea, Japan, Thailand and United States. I am currently using a proxy hosted in United Arab Emirates. (Using Google lead me to the UAE google site.)

So, anyone want to temporary have some surfing speed back, then use a proxy that is hosted in Europe or some Middle East countries. It sure helps when there is a "slight drop in performance" as claimed by Terrorkom to users of Screamyx!

This article was made possible thanks to the information from Jeff Ooi and

Update : Screamyx is back up to speed again, but some websites are still a bit sluggish. So, April 20th is still the day to anticipate as Screamyx will get up to full capacity on that date!.
