Backflip an off-road racing truck

“The two Red Bull Experiments are attempts at Guinness World Records: Robbie Maddison, a freestyle motocross star, will jump the length of a football field on a motorcycle, and Rhys Millen, a top Hollywood stunt driver and
Formula Drift champion, will attempt to be the first person to ever backflip an off-road racing truck. This lineup of musical acts is sure to add to the excitement of the evening.”
As quoted this from http://www.redbullusa.com/experiment#page=ArticlePage.1196395109137-515552382.2

This is the event organize by RedBull USA, on the New Year’s Eve, 31st December 2007.
The best part for this event is the Off-Road Racing Truck Backflip.
This means, the Off-Road Truck will be speeded into a ramp, airborne, and flip in the air 360 degrees before landing. I really can’t imagine how spectacular is the real scene. This is something out of my thought. I never thought that this can be performed.

However, we do not have the chance to witness this as planned. Rhys Millen is hospitalized after injured from his backflip practice session, on 22nd December, in Las Vegas. He was practicing at the old El Toro military base in Irvine.

“After successfully landing the 360-degree backflip three times into the cardboard boxes in training, I am disappointed that our last jump ended in an accident. As I lay here in the hospital with three broken vertebrae in my neck and two compressed and broken vertebrae in my back, I am also disappointed that we cannot perform the 360-degree backflip at the Red Bull Experiment on New Year's Eve, but I'm happy that I will be able to walk again. I look forward to watching Robbie Maddison do his 300-plus-foot motorcycle jump in Las Vegas.” Said Rhys Miller. Quoted from http://www.redbullusa.com/experiment#page=ArticlePage.1196395109137-515552382.3

I would like to express all my concerns to Rhys Miller. Wishing you recover as soon as possible, and with healthiest possible condition. I have been waiting to see your performance. It’s going to be a Guiness World Record. And I’ll keep on waiting for you to return and have that record printed into Guiness Book of World Records, with your name.

You are the man.

Nevertheless, the Motorcross jump, which will be performed by Robbie Maddison, will still be performed on the day. This will be a 300-plus-foot jump across a football field.
Also a support from me to you, Robbie Maddison. Jump as far and as high as u can.

SGH-D880 DuoS - Dual Sims Mobile Phone



SGH-D880 DuoS - Dual Sims Mobile Phone

Recently, Samsung Mobile has announced a new phone. It’s a dual-sim phone. This single unit mobile phone is able to support two sim cards simultaneously. It supports GSM 900/1800/1900 EDGE networks. It has 2.3” QVGA display on the front panel. It’s equipped with 3.2 Megapixel CMOS camera with autofocus function. It also has built-in FM Radio tuner. And never forget the basic features like the Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity, which are essentials.

How much does it cost? Several sources quoted as around RM2000 (around US$500). I’ve not got the exact info on the price yet. Price varies in different countries.

Well, as far as I know, this technology is not new. I heard china has released this kind of mobile phones earlier, and with cheaper prices. I believe, the specification and reliabilities are the points to be compared.

This kind of phone helps consumers who carry more than two mobile numbers. They normally will need two or more mobile phones. So now, this phone, SGH-D880 helps reduce burden. No more multi-phones, but a single phone supporting 2 sims.

Who knows in future, we might not need any sim cards at all. There must be certain ways to make mobile phones more simplified, with better mobile communication technologies. Nevertheless, network securities must be monitored as well. Security equates to privacy of users.

Cute Singer

Hello everyone.
It's really hard to think of what to post for the first entry here.
After surfing around, (i'm actually a bit lazy today, because it's weekend), I found this:
http://www.daraoke.com/idxplay.do?songid=27784
It's a cute singer singing a relaxing song...
Her voice is very cute to me. and, the way she sings is so cute. Sometimes, I feel that she's murmuring. Maybe she's bored? But it's quite unique. Makes me smile. Espacially the photos. She's so cute. hehe...So, I voted for her. How to vote? just click on the Big Blue Button bellow the player interface. Will you vote for her?
She recorded her singing and posted to the website called "Daraoke".
What's it? It's an online karaoke (by Thailand) for net users to select songs and sing as they wish. Users have to download the Daraoke program to be able to participate. Singers will have the option to save and publish the songs they sang. From publishing, listeners will have the choice to vote for the singers they like. There's also statistics. Every singer will have vote counts. So, virtual hits gauge. Nice website anyway.

Ok...This goes my first blog entry. Thanks for reading.

I'll try to update this blog as regularly as possible.

Hope you will enjoy reading.

Thanks.

I think i'll find something to do for weekend first. Hope you Enjoy your weekend too.

See ya.

Oh...almost forget...we are entering new year, year 2008.

HAPPY NEW YEAR...!!!
