SimCity 3000: Never Been Outdated

28 September 2009
Years before SimCity 4 launched, I've played SimCity 2000 since 1999 when I got my first PC based on Pentium II 400 MHz with Microsoft Windows 95 as the operating system. This game addicted me very much until I bought SimCity 3000 on early 2001 from a local store. A bit late because I bought it nearly two years after it was launched on 1999.

Like its predecessor - and successor - this game place us as a mayor of a city that needs to be built from an empty space into a big metropolitan city. It is not as easy as we think because our job as a mayor is somewhat hard. As a mayor, we need to manage almost all aspects of our city carefully. If you are successful, your city will grows tremendously and the resident will be prosperous. Otherwise, if you are unsuccessful managing your city, your city will be bankrupt.

I played this addictive game until SimCity 4 arrived on 2004. I still played it until now, but not as often as before, though, just to see my city which had grown into a metropolitan city with many skyscrapers! The graphic may look standard for this era - looks like Simutrans if you've ever played it. However, the fun side of this game is not only the quality of the graphic, but also the challenge on how to change a small village into a big city! Moreover, this game is hardware-friendly, meaning you don't need a powerful PC to play it.

If you want to buy this game online, you can try to search for the best price on ShopWiki (UK). There are many stores listed there and you are free to choose where to buy with a good price.

ShopWiki (UK) is also the best choice to find educational toys or educational software for children. They have many stores to choose with a good or even bargain price. Not only that, you can also find computer for kids, children books, and school supplies here. Also, as I have stated before, you will also get a bunch of excellent tips and guides from them related on what item you are searching for.

Oh yeah, if you need Back-to-School gadgets, just go to ShopWiki (UK) and you will get many best offers from their directory. Pay them a visit now!

Searching for a Good Mountain Bike?

26 September 2009
Talking about mountain bike, it reminds me to my childhood days when I went out with my friends to a hills near my home by a mini-mountain bike. There, we had a fun with our bike, had a racing bike competition down the hill, played jumping bike, and many more. Ah, I always smile when remember it, when I was still a child 12 years ago.

Now, I have much bigger mountain bike compared to the old one. I purchased it two years ago from a local shop and still in good condition, even the tires is still in perfect shape because I only use it to go to school and sometime to go around town when I'm boring, hehehe... However, the front derailleur - the pedal gear - seems to be broken because when I'm trying to change the gear, it won't move at all. It happened after my bike crashed to a wall a week ago.

Yesterday, when I was searching to buy a new front derailleur online, I accidentally found ShopWiki. At my first sight, I thought this site is only a shopping directory, but I was wrong because they also have a guide on how to choose a perfect derailleur. They even give a tips on how to make a derailleurs last longer.

After exploring this site further more, I also found a mountain bikes buying guide that includes many types of mountain bike to choose, they even include a link to major bike manufacturers for more information. I was also quite shocked when I found cyclocross bikes buying guide because I hardly found it on the other shopping directory site. They also have a guide on how to buy a road bike that was written thoroughly and carefully.

This site is currently available on United States, United Kingdom, Australia, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, and Ireland only. But, don't worry, if you're not a resident of those countries, you can still read their excellent guide or maybe recommend it to your friend from those countries to buy from ShopWiki.

Finally, if you're now searching for a good mountain bike - or anything possible to buy - with a bonus of bunch excellent guides, ShopWiki is the best and the only choice. Pay them a visit now!

Internet Pun Kalah Cepat dengan Merpati

17 September 2009
Sebuah perusahaan teknologi informasi yang berbasis di Afrika Selatan, Unlimited IT, kemarin Rabu (9/9) membuktikan bahwa mengirim data menggunakan merpati jauh lebih cepat daripada menggunakan internet yang disediakan oleh perusahaan telekomunikasi milik negara, Telkom (namanya memang sama dengan nama perusahaan serupa di negara kita).

Kecepatan dan kualitas sambungan internet di Afrika Selatan memang buruk karena keterbatasan dan mahalnya bandwidth.

Kantor berita lokal, SAPA, melaporkan bahwa Winston, si merpati uji coba yang berusia 11 bulan itu, memerlukan waktu satu jam delapan menit untuk terbang dari kantor Unlimited IT di dekat Pietermaritzburg ke Durban yang jaraknya 80 km dengan membawa kartu data yang diikatkan di kakinya.

Termasuk proses download, transfer data memakan waktu dua jam, enam detik, 57 detik lewat internet yang disediakan oleh Telkom.

SAPA melaporkan bahwa Unlimited IT melakukan uji coba itu setelah frustasi dengan lambatnya kecepatan internet mereka. Perusahaan itu mempunyai setidaknya 11 call-center di Afrika Selatan dan mereka selalu mengirim data ke cabang-cabangnya secara reguler. Telkom tidak berkomentar sama sekali atas hasil uji coba ini.

Kecepatan internet di Afrika Selatan diperkirakan akan meningkat setelah kabel fiber optik sepanjang 17.000 km yang menghubungkan Afrika bagian timur dan selatan dengan jaringan global dioperasikan tahun depan menjelang penyelenggaraan Piala Dunia 2010 di Afrika Selatan.

Saya Kangen Ngeblog...

15 September 2009
Rasanya lama sekali saya tidak menulis lagi di blog saya ini, sampai-sampai saya baru tahu kalau Google memberi blog saya PageRank 3 kemarin Jumat (11/9).

Betting Online

11 September 2009
How many of you who like to bet on anything that can be gambled? I myself is not a better - I mean gambler - but I find that this topic is something good to talk about.

In my opinion, betting is a hobby and it's highly addictive - I bet you also have the same opinion with me. People who had done it once will do it again and again. It is hard to stop this kind of hobby. If they run out of money, they will stop doing it temporarily, but start again after getting some money.

Nowadays, it is easy to bet on anything online. Online sports betting is one of the most popular betting which is played by people from around the world. In sports betting, you just need a football match or a racing competition to begin a bet - which team or person will be the winner of that match or competition.

In a film titled "Two for the Money" (2005), starring Al Pacino, Matthew McConaughey and Rene Russo, one dramatic scene showing how a hunch gone wrong on his bet that causes a loss of over $300,000 on bad advice. Betting can be fun in one side, but don't forget to consider its risks.

Do You Bet on Sports?

10 September 2009
If you ask me the same question that I ask you on the title, I will answer "no". As I've said on my previous post, I am not a gambler, but I know a little about that. It is indeed a little knowledge, so please correct me if I'm wrong while talking about this topic.

Let's say that a guy was addicted to sports betting in one time of his life. He said that it was fun at first and at the middle, but it finally turned his life upside down. It is a classic story of gambling. I know that there are some people who get millions of dollar from betting alone, but it is rare and not everyone will have that luck everytime they need it.

Many people bet on sports nowadays because it is the easiest way to bet. Any match or competition will do to begin a bet, choosing which one will come out as the winner. Betting may be fun, but considering the risks is a must before you do that.
