How to get through X-Men Origins

My friends want to go see X-Men at Liberty on Sunday :( I don't know why but for some reason or other they're convinced that they absolutely HAVE to see it.
I've actually already seen it on dvd - and it didn't make me laugh or cry or smile or even puke or gag or anything. Basically no extreme reactions. Actually no reactions at all - well except maybe a yawn or two. And oh yeah - I watched the pirated unedited illegal version - which in itself made it more interesting that the movie by itself is.
Anyway I thought of compiling a list to motivate myself why and how to go through some 2hrs of mutant activity.
Things to do:
  1. Bask in the total hotness of Hugh Jackman
  2. Imagine basking in the total hotness of Taylor Kitsch (Gambit) if only he was given more screen time
  3. Curse Fox for not giving Gambit more screen time
  4. Try to figure out how people who can make optic blasts shooting out from peoples eyes and make metallic claws growing from peoples hands can not make Gambit's eyes red and black.
  5. Be mean and catty and criticize all the poor sods sitting in front (and around) our seats
  6. Try to incorporate real life characters to characters in the movie ("Look men that weird blue woman - doesn't she make you think of XYZ miss"/ "Ohhh look look that leaping fat guy with the claws - he's just like your ex-crush hehehe".) Trust me this is loads fun.
Well that's all I got.
Think that's enough for me to go on a movie lunch with my best mates?...



Hell yeah! Hehe
London,NoMonie,Nilubilu,theMadOoori : I wouldn't miss a good old gossipy girly outing with you guys even if it was the most boring movie yet to be seen!
:XOXO

Later:
It turned out they had finished showing X-Men and we ended up watching 'Night at the Museum 2'...We were surrounded by 8 year olds! lol

  4. Women and their comments about action movies!

    good god !!! why is that you women always have to be so critical about every aspect about everything ?

    I laugh at Beevis and Butthead, awwe at Holmer simpson's gags, simply marvel at Iron Man's iron suit and wish I had the power of "moth" of X-men if I were to change into a mutant. (moth - a shape shifter only portrayed in the original comics as a mutant who can shift his appearance to anything or anyone)

    Judging by the given list of your favourite movies in your last reply.. I am pretty sure if I were to take you out for a movie on the first date.. it's going to be disaster... ENGLISH Patient ? ... bloody boring.. I fell asleep half the way ! .. Little miss sunshine??? ... didn't get pass quarter mark before I took out the dvd and threw it over my shoulder and never turned back to see where it landed.

    Movies are not REAL ! .. they are suppose to be fiction ! .. that's what the whole concept of movies are suppose to be.

    If you want reality.. get you butt out of that chair and go live in a IDP camp or stab someone and get sentenced to jail for about 3 months. ..... cause reality SUCKS! .. and not worth spending 3 hours looking at reality on screen.

    Films... they have to have Guns, shooting, damsels in distress, crazy sex scenes, underwater kissing, candle light dinners while a sniper taking shots at your ass, bending bullets, flying iron suited people who destroy armored tanks with a 4 inch Chinese dick size rockets, crazy ass weirdo's growing iron claws out of their hands, mind controlling sexy chicks, walking robots from the future, talking chicken, fast cars and even faster women to get boned, psycho jokers with white faces, half burned face men, fat fucking penguins, surfing men made out of silver, men made out of rock in love with a blind yet such a sexy chick.....and SUPERMAN !

    That's what the movies are about... unreal life !

    Women !... you are just incapable of simple pleasure's of life ain't it?

    Moth? really? I always wanted to be Jean. Only I never liked her guy Scott that much. lol. Gambit is wayyy cooler.
    Of course I know movies arent for real. Why else would I like Pirates of the Carribean?? I actually LOVE fantasy/sci fi stuff - only X-Men origins was just kind of tame..And they didn't even get the facts right. IMHO the earlier X-Men movies were better...

    Oh and English patient boring?? There's so much passion and feeling in that movie! Even if it borders a little on melodrama.

    Little miss sunshine was sweet! And funny! You have to give it a little time to let it pick its pace.

    Hmm no comments on Australia & Jack Sparrow & Co? :P

    "there was 'something' missing"
    YES! my point exactly. I really enjoyed the Marvel comic when I was in early teens but this movie doesnt have the same 'bite'.

    Well Notebook isn't my fav movie. :D

Bluetooth support on Android Emulator

I have been playing around with Android lately, and one thing that annoyed me is the emulator does not support Bluetooth (as opposed to J2ME emulator, which does).
So if you do not have an actual Android device (like me), and you want to do Bluetooth/WiFi programming, you run in to a problem.

Fortunately, there is a way out - Install the Android image on a VM and use your own Bluetooth device. This is what I did:
Download Androidx86 from http://www.android-x86.org/. This is an .iso file, so you'd need something like VMWare or VirtualBox to run it. Me, I use VirtualBox.
When creating the virtual machine, you need to set the type of guest OS as Linux instead of Other.
After creating the virtual machine, set the network adapter to 'Bridged'.Start the VM and select 'Live CD VESA' at boot.Now you need to find out the ip of this VM. Go to terminal in VM (use Alt+F1 & Alt+F7 to toggle) and use the netcfg command to find this.Now you need open a command prompt and go to …

පරණ අවුරුද්දේ අන්තිම POST එක

පරණ අවුරුද්දේ අන්තිම පැය ටිකනේ දැන් මේ ගෙවෙන්නේ. ඉතින් අන්තිම පොස්ට් එක සිංහලෙන් ලියන්න හිතුනා..
හ්ම්ම්..අද නම් මං අපරාදෙ කියන්නැතිව බහු ජන හිතාය වැඩ ගොඩක් කළා.. ඒ කිව්වේ අවුරුදු කෑමක් හැදුවා - සාලෙ මොප් කළා - පහන පොලිෂ් කළා ...ආ තව අසල්වාසීන්ට කැවිලි පිඟං අරන් ගියා...මගේ කාමරේ අස් කරා (- ඒක ඉතින් බහු ජන නෙවෙයි නෙ - මට විතරයි නෙ :D )

ඉස්සෙල්ලම කියන්නම් හදපු කෑම ගැන - හැදුවෙ බිබික්කම් හෙවත් පොල් කේක් හෙවත් පෝරං ආප්ප (කැමති එකක් කියාගන්න. අම්බලංගොඩ පැත්තෙ බිබික්කං කියනවා, පානදුරේ පෝරං ආප්ප, කොළඹ පොල් කේක් --- හ්ම්ම් පැටලුනාද මන්ද කොහොම හරි මං ඔය පළාත් තුනේම ඒව කියනව. අසන්නෝ සිහි බුද්ධියෙන් අසත්වා )

පර්යේෂණ සහ ආචාර ධර්ම අවසරය

පසුගිය සති කීපයකම නිරත වෙලා හිටිය වැඩක ප්‍රතිපල ඊයේ ලැබුණා. ඒ මගේ පර්යේෂණය සඳහා ඕනෑ උන 'ආචාර ධර්ම අවසරය' නැත්නම් ethics clearence එක ලැබීමයි.

මගේ පර්යේෂණය මුලික වශයෙන් පරිගණක විද්‍යාව සහ මෘදුකාංග ඉංජිනේරු විෂයන් වලින් කෙරුනත්, මිනිසුන් ද සහභාගී කරවාගෙන කෙරෙන කොටසක් ඇති නිසා තමා මෙහෙම අවසරයක් ගන්ඩ උනේ.

ටිකක් පැහැදිලි කරොත්, මේ පර්යේෂණයේ ප්‍රථිපලයක් වන මෘදුකාංග පද්ධතිය නිවැරදිව වැඩ කරනවාද නැද්ද කියන එක තහවුරු කරන්න එක විද්‍යාගාරයක කරලා බලල මදි (සහ කරන්න අමාරුයි). 'හැබෑ ලෝකයේ' එය වැඩ කරන හැටි බලන්ඩ ඕනේ.

මගේ පර්යේෂණය 'ස්මාර්ට් තාක්ෂනය' නැත්නම්, කෘතිම බුද්ධිය සහිත ගෘහස්ත පද්ධතියක් (smart home) සම්බන්ධයෙන්. වෙනත් මෘදුකාංග වලට වඩා මේ වගේ පද්ධතියක් හදන කොට ගොඩක්ම සැලකිලිමත් වෙන්න ඕනේ මිනිස්සු මෙහෙම තාක්ෂනෙකට කොහොම ප්‍රතිචාර දක්වයිද කියලා. 
හිතන්න, ඔයාලගේ ගෙදරත් කෘතිම බුද්ධියක් නැත්නම් 'ස්මාර්ට්' පද්ධතියක් හයි කරලා කියලා. මේ වගේ පද්ධති වල අරමුණ මිනිසුන්ගේ ජීවිතය පහසු කරන එක. උදාහරණයකට ඔන්න ඔයාගේ 'බුද්ධිමත් ගෙදර' ලව්වා ඔයාට පුළුවන් වෙලාවට ලයිට් දාන්න/නිවන්න, …
