"The kingdom of God is a kingdom of Paradox, where through the ugly defeat of a cross, a holy God is utterly glorified. Victory comes through defeat; healing through brokenness; finding self through losing self." Charles Colson
"God will never plant the seed of his life upon the soil of a hard, unbroken spirit. He will only plant that seed where the conviction of his spirit has brought brokenness, where the soil has been watered with the tears of repentance as well as the tears of joy." Alan Redpath
"Deliverance can come to us only by the defeat of our old life. Safety and peace come only after we have been forced to our knees. God rescues us by breaking us, by shattering our strength and wiping out our resistance. A. W. Tozer
"True prayer is born out of brokenness." Francis J. Roberts

yucky maths exam tomorrow morning, 2 papers 1hr+1.5hr=2.5hr of torture. so i prayed, i prayed for some earthly wisdom to play this unfair game. remember, the most brilliant person will never get the most brilliant result.
went to Causeway Bay today, really cool. i finally got to touch the sony NR-70V new clie, and the vaio U!!!!
i only got to play for 3 min. (that's long enough) the screen was amazingly bright, brighter and any PDAs out there. the camera is cool, but there's no flash. chinese OS installed on top of the JP OS, vertual grafitti area remained to be in JP, but they're kanjiz. the keyboard wasn't as bad as ppl meantioned, MUCH better than motorola's yucky V70 keypad. fast response, awesome sound, but the sylus is a lil clumsy. rumour: sony to release new palm in june. eithger NR or T series.
i only got to play with the JP version, whrereas other ppl were enjoying the show (they thought that was i was doing was a live demonstration geez, do i look like a japanese? LOL), they had no clue about the language at all, when japanese windows XP is written in a way that foreigners find it hard to operate, well, they wanna suit the japanese younsters, less kanji, but tonnes of katakana. the drag point (at the right) is a LOT more easier to use than IBM's lil red button (what they call the dragpoint) at the middle. the keyphase feature was amazing, i was able to type chinese characters with one hand and the other confirming and pressing enter. the keyboard is a lil too small, but i've got used to it within 5 minutes. i love the feeling. so i got to touch the lil puter for like er... 15 min? it was so amazing. it was fast (886Mhz, faster than any larger sub-notebooks available) i luv the built-in memorystick slot and LAN card. awe geez, the sound blaster is as good as NEC's. the resolution was unreasonably high, characters might be too small luckily they're not latin alphabets, or else that would be even less illegible. they're not using LCDs, but using a TFT, but sometimes i do think TFT looks better than LCD (depending on brand). video streaming was awesome, 2 USB ports, one i-link plug (IEEE1394/firewire). ok, if i have the money, this is defnitely gonna be mine!! dump all those palms, i prefer a subsubsub vaio U notebook!!!!
