A Town Called Panic : DVD Talk Review of the DVD Video June 26, 2010

Filed under: Movies — ilcourtilcourt @ 09:22

Luckily, foreign filmmakers like Vincent Patar and Stéphane Aubier have been bucking the trend while making the irresistibly nutzoid TV show Panique au village. Translated as A Town Called Panic, it was a massive hit after appearing on screens worldwide in 2000. Now, ten years later, the pair responsible are bring the crazy characters and speedball silliness to the full length motion picture format. As usual, not only does the upgrade favor A Town Called Panic, it is guaranteed to jumpstart a whole new cult of converts.

Timeless Facade – Everything is a facade, only good food is a reality: 1TwentySix June 25, 2010

Filed under: Life In Singapore,Where to eat — ilcourtilcourt @ 07:42

I would have had a wonderful meal if not for the less than cool dining environment. And the price for such an indulgence? Approximately $202 (before the use of discount voucher). Expensive? Arguably yes. But with very few other “fine dining” options in the east, 1TwentySix could probably be a consideration for your next special occasion or celebration.

Final Verdict:
Ambience:7.5/10 (-0.5 for the lack of aircon)
Value for money:6/10

This is so cool: the page layout changes according to the rendering width; this will become the standard in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0s (it is that great)

So now, you’ll see the layout and type size change depending on the available width. From a narrow single column (which should be the view you’ll see on mobile devices)…

Multitasking in iOS 4 more info (required read) June 16, 2010

This is the first time I read this, and it is very interesting

But, there’s more. A slightly tenuous one Apple notes is “push notifications”. I don’t class this as multitasking; it is push notifications – completely separate. Remember, a year ago, Apple were saying which was a blatant lie that push notifications were instead of multitasking, so they can’t be the same thing. Local notifications are, and that’s the next service. This allows push-notification-like alerts that do not need a server running, thus no internet connection is needed either. Therefore, alarms and timers can background making a noise/alert when the time ends, can alert you of your next episode of Glee extremely easily. Heck, even We Rule could make a noise when your crops are done. This is a multi-purpose service; it doesn’t have one set function unlike the first three, and has many applications.
