Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li
Friday, February 27, 2009

Captain's Log Stardate -314158.07


After attending the press launch of Globe's Pixlink yesterday at the Manila Contemporary Gallery, Lalaine, Rocky, Glen and I went to SM North EDSA to watch The Legend of Chun-Li. The poster above should have been a dead giveaway that the movie will suck but we decided to watch it anyway.

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li is the second movie based on Capcom's popular fighting game, Street Fighter.


The movie stars Smallville's Kristin Kreuk as Chun-Li, Neal McDonough as M. Bison, Kingpin Michael Clarke Duncan as Balrog, and Lui Kang Robin Shou as Chun-Li's master Gen.


The movie opened in the Philippines 2 days before (3 days actually since our time is 1 day advance) the official showing date in the USA. Chun-Li is a pianist who was trained by her father in wushu, unlike the original Street Fighter with Van Damme wherein Chun-Li is a reporter.


We will see how Chun-Li learned martial arts from his father and Lui Kang Gen. The problem with this movie is that the fight scenes are boring and short. Take for example the much awaited face-off between Chun-Li and Vega. I think the fight lasted for only 2 or 3 minutes! No signature moves for Vega or even a second look at Chun-Li's short-lived Spinning Bird Kick. Yes, she did it for about 2 seconds then we get interrupted with her spinning bird necklace.

Vega was like an ugly rag doll, literally. And I thought Vega was handsome. Sheesh! At least Chun-Li was right when she said that Vega should keep his mask.


Her fight scene with these group of thugs is more exciting than her fight with Vega and M. Bison combined. Seriously. No Kidding.


The special effects are bad. I rather choose Ryu's non visible hadouken from the first movie than Chun-Li's Kikouken in this movie. It looked like a ghost from Ghostbusters when she released it to Bison.


The movie is a big disappointment for Street Fighter and Chun-Li fans like me. They should have at least developed the story better and included more fight scenes with Chun-Li.

There's no mention of Guile or any other characters besides Ryu "something". Charlie uses guns and no sonic booms or flash kicks, well... Chun-Li did one flash kick. Wierd. Vega should be handsome, but he isn't in the movie (no offense Taboo). Balrog uses rocket launchers. Bison is your typical generic evil white guy who doesn't even reveal a single "psycho" energy in the movie and Chun-Li didn't wear her signature costume.

Well, it's nice to know Lui Kang Robin Shou can still kick butts and Kristin Kreuk looks good on a pseudo Chun-Li costume and fights very well. But still, don't watch this movie. You'll be wasting your money as just as we wasted ours.

Just play the game Street Fighter 4 on arcades or buy the game for your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. Or you could always spend your money to buy a DVD of Jean-Claude Van Damme's Street Fighter. His version of Street Fighter is better than The Legend of Chun-Li. TRUST ME.

The clips in the video below basically shows everything exciting in the movie.



I wonder, should we watch the upcoming Dragon Ball movie or not since it will suck like this one? I believe it's the latter. At least we have Kristin Kreuk to ogle on here.

Email Sending Netiquette
Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Captain's Log Stardate -314130.71


One of the things that irritate me most is when I receive forwarded and mass emails wherein my email address is displayed on the TO: field. It exposes everyone's privacy. MERALCO and txtJock were both guilty with this act but have already corrected their mistakes after I brought it to their attention.

But apparently, there are still lots of clueless individuals infront of computers who keep on sending mass emails like this. Take for example this guy:

Greetings!

Hello there. I’m Jordan (you can call me Jordie), a Sourcing Assistant from Sykes Asia Inc. I read your blog site and it’s cool and interesting. I was wondering if you could allow me to post an ad from our company in your site. I could also send you some files (company profile, the ad itself, etc) and you could make an article about it. Posting about our vacancies might help people you know to get a job. Here in Sykes, we take fast and efficient action towards our applicants’ process. Don’t worry because I wouldn’t spam you or your site with our openings – we could do the postings on a scheduled basis like only once a week. Since your blog is about tech stuff or on the same line as it, I think that your readers might be interested on the job opportunities that we offer. I would really appreciate it if you would reply to this email as soon as possible – may your reply be positive or negative.


Thanks and regards,

Jordan Christian T. Conoza

HR Assistant - Sourcing Team
Sykes Asia, Incorporated
19th Floor, One San Miguel Avenue Building
San Miguel Avenue corner Shaw Boulevard
Pasig City 1600, Manila, Philippines

Cell: 63 9064967118
E-mail: Jordan.Conoza@sykes.com
IM: jordan.chan.conoza@gmail.com

I may have considered his request and posted everything for free on my blog since a lot of people nowadays are jobless. But I won't. Why? Check out the way he sent the email:


I can see the email addresses of Cai, Annalyn, Bob, Mark, Glen, Rocky, Karlo, Andrew, Lalaine and about 40 other people on the TO field. It only means that this guy just exposed our privacy to everyone. Imagine this scenario: I am a spammer and I need the contact details or emails of the top Pinoy bloggers, I now have about 40 email addresses, thanks to this bozo from Sykes.

He mentioned about reading our "tech" blogs and he found it cool and interesting. REALLY NOW? Reading 40+ blogs huh? LIAR. The blog of my friend Glen isn't even related to tech and his email is so private even Tim Cumper will not find it. And I doubt that it's coincidence that he had read all our blogs the way he pasted our emails in order. He got the list from someone else.

So, where the hell did he got our contact details? Well that was easy to trace since I submit my info to a very few people. And the emails of my friends who've I've just introduced to blogging gave away the culprit. I was the one submitting their infos on select events. And I've only submitted them ONCE!

The person I gave our info to promised that ALL infos WILL NOT BE SHARED to anyone.
Tech / gadgets / game bloggers sign up here

please sign up here if you are a tech/gadgets/game bloggers

this is for an upcoming event and opportunity for tech bloggers in the Philippines

all infos sent will not be shared to any
it will be used as an invitation for this event

thanks

I believe the event was long over and this Sykes thing is a different story. I won't share his identity since he's my friend and I respect his privacy. But please, if you're going to share the info to others please inform us first.

Good Day All,

I would like to extend a public apology to all who received the email last night. It was a simple inquiry as I was testing the waters in the avenue of online postings through blogs. The email addresses were accidentally placed in the TO field. I would be stricter and careful next time in the efforts to contact you guys – like through your blog sites (comments field etc.). I could however assure you that the information contained in the email including those addresses would not be disclosed outside of business purposes. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Regards,

Jordan Christian Conoza

Obviously, our email addresses have already been disclosed to other parties. Tsss.

Now, how about a short lecture on BCC or Blind Carbon Copy. BCC provides privacy to your email recipients. If you are sending email on behalf of a business or organization, it may be especially important to keep lists of clients, members, or associates confidential. Using the TO: or CC: fields exposes the addresses of all your recipients

Forwarded email messages frequently contain long lists of email addresses that were CC'd by previous senders. These addresses are highly likely to be active and valid, so they are very valuable to spammers. Many email-borne viruses harvest email addresses contained in messages you've already received (not just the To: and From: fields, but from the body, too), so those long lists in forwarded messages pose a risk to all the accounts they point to if you get infected.

Just follow these instructions to send via BCC:
  • In most email clients, the BCC field is very apparent and obvious. While in a new message in AOL's web mail, click BCC. In Gmail and Yahoo Mail!, click add BCC. In Hotmail, click Show Cc & Bcc.
  • In Outlook and Outlook express, it's not so obvious but turning it on is a one-time event.
  • To activate the BCC field in Outlook Express, create a new message and choose View, All Headers.
  • To activate the BCC field in MS-Outlook, create a new message and choose View, BCC.
  • Lotus Notes - the BCC field is right there. Nothing to "turn on", no hoops to jump through, just use it!


So guys, think twice before submitting your emails to other people. Okay?

Weird Irate Citibank Customer
Wednesday, February 11, 2009

Captain's Log Stardate -314112.63


NOTE: Audio deleted as per request by Citicorp

I don't know if the caller is really a client of Citibank who is just having a really bad day or maybe she's like Tim Cumper who doesn't have any better things to do in life. In any case, her cursing is very inappropriate.

PLDT's CSR, you've met your match. :~)


Flashback - Funny Destiny Cable CSR:




(Thanks Gadz!)


UPDATE (02/18/2008): I've removed the recording as per request by Frances Marra of Citicorp North America. You may contact Frances at frances.marra(at)citi(dot)com or office phone# +1(212)657-2413 if you have some information regarding the recording.

Sunday, February 08, 2009

Captain's Log Stardate 314106.22


Yup, you read it right. CD-R King now offers Windmill Generators for only Php100,000! A bit pricey but perfect for folks living in farms and faraway places. I just hope they release some cheap solar panels for us living in the metro since we barely receive winds here. :~)

Features of the Windmill Generator taken from the official brochure:

  • Adopt high-quality and high strength permanent materials to ensure high energy conversion efficiency
  • Adopt high-quality and high strength aluminum alloy to make the unit light weight and easy installation
  • The fiber-glass blades have the advantages of great inrensity and excellent fatigue resistance.
  • Stainless steel shaft and screws to avoid rust and corrosion
  • And the surface is coated with pollution-free material
  • Working environmental temperature from -20C to 50C

If you've already snatched that Php100,000 payola from Tim Cumper, then contact Rafael of CD-R King at (2)241-4166 / (2)247-7112.
