VMware Infrastructure 3 Demo Lite

Above is a first 4mins slimed down clip for those short attention sampler to get a quick idea what can be done with the VMware Virtualization Suite. :)

Do visit for the full 18mins hi-res version (105MB).

Personally I have been using VMware for all sorts of products testing and evaluation, especially there are wealth of free pre-built, pre-configured and ready-to-run virtual software application to fiddle with when you have too much time to spare.

Moreover my PoorMan home < > internet network is running the trusty dedicated virtualized m0n0wall firewall under the Free VMware Player too.

BBS: The Documentary

This is a 10mins brief collection clips on old skool Bulletin Board System (BBS) that were once rulez on 80s-90ish era.

“....there was a brave and pioneering band of computer users who spent their time, money and sanity setting up their home computers and phone lines to welcome anyone who called. By using a modem, anyone else who knew the phone number of these computers could connect to them, leave messages, send and recieve files.... and millions did.” -

It reminded me the thrill of downloading Wolfenstein 3D and Doom when it were just released and not forgetting using that HS/LINK bidirectional file transfer protocol.

The documentary is released under Creative Commons license and you can legally grab the full video free at this .torrent link at

“The Dawn of Man” for Real?

OMG!, When I first heard this recent news on “For First Time, Chimps Seen Making Weapons for Hunting”, it reminded me the scene on “The Dawn of Man” flooded by that hunting psychedelic Ligeti’s “Requiem” and “Lux Aeterna” soundtrack from the famous film Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The 80s Puma Computer Shoe

“”These Puma running shoes were affixed with pedometer computers that could be reset and would count up time and distance that could be then downloaded to the game port on the Apple II. Allan Lundell put these shoes to good use in Santa Cruz, California in the mid 1980s. Allan tells us: "nothing could get people's attention more than bending down and pushing a button on your shoes and hearing them beep, the definitive nerd". - DigiBarn Computer Museum

Parasite Haven in Human Stomach

This video from “”A 55-year-old man presented with intermittent, crampy pain in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. A colonoscopy was ordered and revealed multiple mobile 1-cm worms, Enterobius vermicularis, in the cecum."” - New England Journal of Medicine.

“”The human pinworm Enterobius vermicularis is a ubiquitous parasite of man, it being estimated that over 200 million people are infected annually. It is more common in the temperate regions of Western Europe and North America, (it being relatively rare in the tropics) and is found particularly in children. Samples of Caucasian children in the U.S.A. and Canada have shown incidences of infection of between 30% to 80%,with similar levels in Europe, and although these regions are the parasites strongholds, it may be found throughout the world, again often with high degrees of incidence.”” - The Human Pinworm

Why sound and noise is important in choosing a car

Maybe this will give some inspiration to this electric Tesla Roadster beast which offers none of the screaming excruciating orgasmic roar normally associated with gasoline engine powered sports car.

Moreover, the world's first purpose-built hydrogen-powered bike aka The ENV (Emission Neutral Vehicle), could be fitted with an artificial "vroom" because of worries its silence might be dangerous.

Photosynth : Revolutionize the way we look at photos

A killer application in making, enough said:
“”What I do,” he smiles, “is just show them the video. I step back and I don’t say anything, and I just watch their reaction. And usually their reaction is that their jaw drops. That’s the part I love the most. It’s just the excitement that people see. They see something that looks a little bit like the visual effects they see on TV and reminds them a little bit of a slideshow, but they know it’s interactive, and they can just imagine the excitement of being able to drive this themselves.”” – Richard Szeliski.
