to my home on the web. My name is Imran, as you may have guessed.
The purpose of this site is to share my interests with people all
around the world.
MODE>>I really gotta
apologise for the long period of time whereby my site remained
idle. I'm currently under industrial attachment from my
Polytechnic and I'm doing OT almost everyday. After this
attachment (about 2 weeks more), I'll be changing the graphics a
little bit and hope to provide more information. My server and
address might change as well. So stay tuned!
Sorry about the slow updates. I was really
busy on projects during this holidays. Anyway, I got really exciting
about EA's new game, Need For Speed : High Stakes. I have created a
little article on it, stating all the cool new features of the game.
Check it out right here!
the past few days, you might have noticed that most of the pictures
couldn't load in this page. That was because of server maintenence.
I also realised that all the files in a certain directory were gone
:( Anyway, the problem is fixed!
back from my exams now *phew* And I have created an updated version
of my Hardware Channel. Now, it contains 10 more hardware sites and
slightly more links to the hardware manufacturer's sites. To learn
more about this channel, click here.
Click above to add channel.
now, I am trying to create a Software channel where it will contain
all the links to game sites and more. If you have any good software
related sites to share, please email me about it.
guessed it. It's exam time and this site will be under 'suspended
mode' for 10 days. Normal updates will resume on 10 May 99 ! Sorry
for the inconvenience (if any..)
received feedback from some places that my cover page animation is
unnecessary and is too long. I have to agree with that. I have
therefore changed it. You may have looked at it on you way in or you

I have also updated the 'About
Me' section a little, providing with more accurate and up
to date information :)

For Speed 4 Demo
demo for this long awaited game is out! I have tried it, and damn,
this baby is much better than any of it's predessors. It runs much
smoother than NFS3 and more speed is noticed by the faster
It is also easier to control the cars and the
graphics seem somewhat the same as NFS3 except for the special
effects. It has real lighting effects for the headlights and rear
Driving at night is also fantastic. The houses
alongside the track have lights in them and the whole thing gives a
new experience. The cars also get damaged when crashed. You can

III 450 @ 558MHz
folks at Hot
Hardware managed to overclock a Pentium III 450 to 558MHz!
with the settings of 4.5x124MHz. He came up with a special technique
to cool the processor.
The PC had been
running a whole day without crashing and the speed was indeed fast.
so we all know that the stock Pentium !!! Heatsink and Fan that
comes with the Retail CPU is absolutely inadequate for the job
(my humble opinion of course). So, I set out to improve upon the
situation. I wanted cool the CPU better with a bigger sink and
fan combo and also help the cache chips make contact with the
sink in the process! Let's dismantle (my favorite part) shall

Joysticks on PC
guy form TechnoToPus
Emulation, an awesome emulation site, has sucessfully tried using
Playstation joysticks on his PC.
I have also attained
the drivers and will try to build a Sega Megadrive to PC adapter. I
have many Sega joysticks and gamepads and I hope I can sucessfully
use them on my PC. All this after my exams! :)
have successfully built a playstation to pc, joystick adapter
and it works great wonders. this adapter allows the use of sony
playstation joysticks or gamepads on your computer through a
parallel port, and it supported directx too. the drivers are
developed by Earle F. Philhower, and they worked perfectly and
even supports for dual shock. this adapter allows the full-use
of all buttons on the playstation joystick....."
Virus hits Singapore
popular Chernobyl virus, also known as Win95.CIH has hit Singapore.
Many people suffered as their systems failed to boot. Some
variations of the virus is said to attack on 26 May and others are
said to attack on every 26 of the month.
Couple of my
friends' PCs were also affected and they were sent for either bios
or motherboard replacement. This virus can override your harddisk or
your bios. Read this headline from Channel News Asia
people talk about 3D cards lately, names like 3dfx, nVidia and
Matrox crop up fairly often, but seldom do you hear people talking
about 3DLab's Permedia3. Their Permedia2 chipset may not have been
the hottest item on most gamer's list, but they have reason to
believe that the Permedia3 may be.
Check out it's specs in
site, WickedPC have come up with a Voodoo3 frequently asked
qustions. It's all you ever need to know about this speed demon

challenge, come over to this

Voodoo3 Look better
posted a bit AGN3D's message
boards about getting the Voodoo3 image quality up to the
par of the TNT. Here is the info:
Looks like I'm gonna
try it :)
|To make the
v3 look like tnt in 32 bit color, just dl the new v3 overclocker
till 3dfx fixes it in their drivers, and enable higher quality
but lower perf video for glide and d3d. Then enable mipmap
ditheriung under glide, set your desktop to 32 bit color, and
make sure to enable 16 bit textures in all games> Glide, Ogl,
D3d. etc I tested it Side by side with 16 meg Asus V3400 TNT at
32 bit with 16 bit textures etc, along with my 3dfx voodoo3 3000
with the above. I myself noticed No difference whatsoever in
picture. Just make sure that in all openGL games, that you type
gl_modulate 2.5, then vid_restart. It makes the openGL picture
look more normal and bright and crisp. Man, running unreal at
1280x1024 at 85 hz, with ALL Quality settings on even in a 16
player bot game, there is no slowdown and it is FAST. I love
this card. Yes TNT rocks too, and Im sure TNT2 will, but for now
im very happy.
