Just got Crysis and the add-on. It doesn't look bad, though, but compared to Far Cry (I've recently seen the movie, by the way) it even looks outdated, although it was released last year! And no extra features but the multi-functional nanoskeleton. Damn. Is the gaming industry really in some kind of recession as well? The plot is rather weird - how can N.Korea become a superpower by 2020? ;-) And it doesn't run smoothly on my PC, which is bad. The system requirements are way too high, I even heard people talk about some Crysis-eligibility if mentioning a config when discussing it somewhere, i.e. "Will it run Crysis"? Wow.

Anyway, I like the intro music. Just copied it into my mobile. And I've put it on typing this
message ;-) The gameplay is relatively alright, so the entire stuff will probably do....

My kettle has broken down. I like to drink cocoa and sometimes tea when solving problems on maths and physics (my apartment looks towards the sun and it's quite hot in the room when so!). We will probably buy a new kettle shortly, maybe even tomorrow.

Well, gotta go to re-read my assignment on maths again to memorise it well enough. Oh, I wish I could take a long, long rest sometime...

Some days ago I got a new calculator ( I don't want to switch my PC on every time I need to get the result of a calculation, though), so I had made up my mind to buy one. Sadly, it ain't programmable, but I think I don't need that feature so far. Anyway, I can get a programmable one afterwards.
So I've purchased a Casio. I was surprised - even plain calculators have changed a lot since the 80s! So many functions to calculate virtually everything... I even experimented - I tried to raise 2 to the power of 1000000, i.e. 1x10^6. The stuff said "Math error". I tried to figure out what happened. Then I realised that the greatest number it can display is the greatest number that I personally know: it's 10^100, and written in the user guide! So that's why it kept on saying "Math error"... Well, it was able to raise 2 to the power of 100, though - it displayed "1.12676506x10^30". If I am not mistaken, that's approximately the mass of the Sun...
Oh, the calculator is able to solve integrals, vectors and complex numbers too, which is great, because I'll be able to use it later doing my home work on higher mathematics and analytical geometry, for example...

I'm so tired of it that I won't last on long. I'll probably go to bed earlier than usual. Don't wanna to stay up that long anymore! I am too overwhelmed today.
At least I found the book I had wanted to buy. When I got in, it caught my eye almost immediately. Tomorrow... I will get a look through it tomorrow... after I have got back home. I know I shouldn't have stayed up yesterday, but I couldn't help it. 4 hours of sleep a day ain't good.

I have completed studying of my physics textbook. I've got to solve all those assignment that are on the last pages anyway. I've also got to solve those which are in other exam books that I bought. This annoys me, but I've got to get ready for everything that might turn up at the forthcoming exam (and the very thought of it frightens me, coz it's so tough!!! I'm not even sure that I'll get through, though I have certainly got around to all that physics/maths stuff!). Anyway, I'm just going to start doing these after I have got back.
I wish I had been brought up differently.
