    Ok I know. This took a while, but here it is :D

    What's your full name?
    Chan Wei Min

    Your age:

    Where do you live?
    Petaling Jaya

    Hair color?

    If you could dye your hair any color, what would you choose?
    I wouldn't cause I don't like the feeling of foreign chemicals on my hair. :p

    Eye color?
    I think it's the usual brown.

    Do you wear contacts/glasses?

    Software Developer

    Can you touch your nose with your tongue?
    If I stretched it hard enough I'd probably cut my tongue on my teeth before it'd touch my tongue

    Curl your tongue?

    Do you drive fast?
    My wife says I'm the most cowardest, law abiding driver she has ever known. Does that give you enough of a hint?

    Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?

    How many different cities have you lived in?

    What's under your bed?

    What's on your mouse pad?
    What mouse pad?

    What book are you reading now?

    Your most prized possession?
    Hmmm.. tough... most probably my Toshiba M200 Tablet PC

    The next event/acquisition you're looking forward to?
    O2 XPhone 2.

    What's your hobby?
    I write programs. :p

    Do you cook?
    No, the pinnacle of my culinary skills happen to be a Japanese Tamago Brick.

    Can we have a picture of you?
    Isn't there one floating around in the forums? During the Rojakpot BBQ or something.

    What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
    Hmmm... define crazy... I've done a lot of crazy stuff, and nothing particularly stands out right now.

    Any photo of that?
    Like I said.. nothing stands out right now.

    Favorite food?
    Hmmm... nothing in particular...

    Favorite drink?
    Again.. nothing I'd actively seek out to drink to be called a favorite

    Favorite alcoholic drink?
    Can't take alcohol, body reacts badly to it.

    Favorite car?
    Dodge Viper, then I'd get flogged by the car enthusiast.. WHICH MODEL??? Then I'll tell them I have NO IDEA!! :p I just happen to like the design of the Viper series

    Favorite sports?
    Don't play sports.

    Favorite time of the year?

    Favorite relaxation spot?
    Anywhere I can play games on.

    Favorite music?
    Video Game Music, especially if they happen to be played by an orchestra!

    Favorite board game?
    Don't play board games.

    Favorite book?
    Hmmm... non that I can recall.

    Favorite cartoon growing up?
    Transformers... More than meets the eye!

    Favorite movie so far?
    Hmmm... it'll have to be... Spaceballs!

    Favorite gadget own so far?
    My Creative Zen Portable Media Center, makes waiting a lot more easier! Just took it on a trip and it makes the 4 hour plane ride seems so much faster.

    Favorite part of a computer?
    I love the computer as a whole, no biasness to anything. ;)

    Favorite programming language?
    Visual Basic!!

    Favorite game console and why?
    The XBox. When you turn on the XBox, the TV kicks into Progressive Display mode, the amp automatically detects the pressence of a Dolby Digital surround sound signal and kicks into the appropraite setting. And that makes me feel that I spent my money properly on my gear. Before you start flaming me, the PS2 even with the appropraite component cables doesn't seem to want to display in progressive mode, and audio wise games support Dolby Pro Logic which means I have to toggle the amp manually myself :p Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    Favorite game (any platform)?
    Hmmm.. tough choice.... VERY tough choice. Right now it'll have to be Viewtiful Joe for the Gamecube, for being the first game which made me want to hurl the controller through the TV!

    Favorite toy?
    Non, I like all my toys equally! ;)

    Favorite mobile phone?
    O2 XPhone 2, yes it's not out for sale yet. But I've seen it... it's very nice! :D

    Star Trek or Star Wars? Why?
    Hmmm.. I'd have to say Star Trek. I guess I prefer the technology in Star Trek. Yeah yeah, Sun Crusher, Death Stars, etc. etc. Not worth a squat when your crew get's transported off the bridge because your shields failed! ;)

    ON ARP...
    Member since:
    I can't remember!

    Discovered it through:
    Ken asked me to join.

    Most frequently visit: (i.e. BOG, which forum, news, reviews, etc)
    Errr.. forums I guess and even then not a lot!

    Fondest memory/Best thing about ARP?
    Fondest memory... nothing in particular yet. Best thing about ARP, people read what I write... I hope!! :D

    Person you would most like to meet from the community? (whom you've not met!)
    I don't know half the people in the forums, I don't even lurk enough! :p

    One thing you'd like to see on the site:
    Nothing that's on my mind right now.

    What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
    What day is it?

    If I had a lot of money, I would...
    Make my family happy, and do what I can for charity

    If I had the time, I would...
    Write a game!

    What inspires you?
    I'd have to say... necessity! :) Everytime I think of doing something.. it's always because I need it!

    Lifetime goals?
    Keep family happy, write programs that people use :D

    Why do you like gadgets so much?
    I just seem to find it interesting how things can be accomplish by them! And how they make my life more interesting!

    If a gadget is to be invented specifically for you, what would it be?
    A PC that's small, or can be shrinked to a small pocketable size. Yet runs normal applications, has adequet computing power, has LOOOOOONGGG battery life, and keep me connected to the net. Here's to seeing how the OQO and FlipStart fare!

    If you are given the chance to meet any one person in the world, who would it be and why?
    At this point of time? I would like to meet the person responsible for making the ending for Halo 2 and let him know EXACTLY how I feel about! ;)

    Other than world peace, what would you wish for if you are given 3 wishes?
    1. Savegame Slots for my life so I can save before making stupid moves.
    2. A steady flow of money which would not arouse any legal attention on where it's coming from. :p
    3. Ability to move through time as an observer just for the heck of it!

    Where is the one place you would most want to visit if money is not a problem?
    Akihabara, Japan... GADGET HAVEN!!!

    What is the Matrix?
    A game of SimCity! :D

    Who are you going to interview?
    Errr.. I don't know anyone well enough!!!

    peaz ARP Webmaster Staff Member

    I have some follow up questions too!!!

    What about the Matrix or Star Wars ones :D

    Crazy whacky, Crazy silly, anything I suppose. What you would define Crazy as. Tell us one of them then. Crazy accounts with your gadgets? Crazy account with your Heelys?

    Hey, you have to love at least one right?

    Well, you still need to choose one... haha :) I'm sure you know a couple of guys here. Remember, you can form any questions you like and get them asked wide open in cyberspace ;)

    Fine fine...

    There was this one time at band camp where I.... Ok.. that's not right. :p The craziest thing would be heeling down to Mid Valley Megamall on the Flyover which you have to walk across when you take an LRT to the Bangsar stop and then want to walk over to Mid Valley. My soles smelt of burnt rubber when I reached the base.

    I'm sitting here scratching my head, wondering what the heck is my favorite food... and I still can't come out with anything

    So who wants to stand up to the choping board?

    peaz ARP Webmaster Staff Member

    Hahaha. YEAH... let's all go and grill falcone after we finish grilling marauder :p

    Hmmm Marauder, here's a question for you...

    Why do you like the Nintendo platform so much?

    Why Gameboy?

    Why not Playstation?
  9. marauderz

    marauderz Newbie

    Cause there are great games to be played there!
    Game anywhere you feel like it... why not? Granted I'm sure my wife doesn't like it when I pull out my GBA during one of her friend's wedding dinners.. :p

    I DO have a PS2, I didn't say i hated it. But like I said, with an XBOX my investment in home AV equipement feels worth while when I turn it on. :p

  11. marauderz

    marauderz Newbie

    Yes, once during a meeting when I just got my new XPhone. I coded up an app that turns turns the phone into a vibrator... that was the weirdest program I made... not too sure if I was bored at the time. :p

    Interesting! :thumb:

    So....a software developer.

    For a start, just 1 question (more to come) :

    Can you illustrate here a 'program' for washing your hair? :think:
  18. zy

    zy Staff Member

    Q : Do you find the vibration funciton useful ? :p
  19. marauderz

    marauderz Newbie

    I have no idea what you're trying to ask!

    Utterly useless!!!

    Logic flow for washing your hair.. :mrgreen:

    You wanted to wash your hair.
    You lift up your legs,
    Started to walk,
    To the staircase,
    Ascend step by step,
    Right foot then left,
    Reached the top,
    Locate the direction of the bathroom...,
    then???? :think:

    (That's all I could help you, Dude. :beer: )
