My Experience: Upgrading My Computer

As I have promised, here is an article about my computer upgrading experience. I bought all the components on a Boxing Day sale and spent about two hours working on my computer to make it what it is today. Benchmarks and other test results are obviously included. Even thought I didn’t have a particularly pleasant experience doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t personally upgrade your computer.

“Everyone Talked Loudly in Chinatown” Short Story Response

This is another article that once was an assignment for school. This particular article came from my grade 12 English class, where I had to read this short story, Everyone Talked Loudly in Chinatown, and do a response essay on a chosen few aspects of this story. I chose the conflicts in the story and of course I got a pretty good mark for my work. For those who are reading this essay in order to respond a schoolwork question (since this short story is part of some curricula), feel free to integrate my ideas into your response, but don’t copy this essay word for word without giving credit, since that would be plagiarism. It doesn’t do me any harm for you to copy it, but you might get an zero or other punishments if your teacher catches you. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Movie Review: “Dead Presidents” (1995)

As some of you know (my fellow students), I took a film class in my grade 12 year so I had to write movie reviews as assignments. This was my first movie review of the year, and I got an A on this assignment. I only put my better efforts on my website. I got my good mark by writing in “technical” movie language as the teacher wanted. Anyways, this review is about some obscure film that came out in the mid nineties about the Vietnam War and black people in America. My teacher made me watch obscure films such as this one so this is the review that you will get. Hope you enjoy it. You’ll probably understand my review better if you’ve watched this film. For those of you who haven’t watched this movie, don’t bother trying to rent it since the movie isn’t worth the money anyways.

Movie Review: “Beautiful Boxer” (2003)

Well, I complain about how my film class teacher won’t let the class to go watch new movies, so he made us go watch a new movie. Unfortunately, this is one of the many weird foreign films that was shown at the 2004 Vancouver International Film Festival. This is a movie about a Thai kickboxer who fights to earn money so that he can get a sex change operation. Believe it or not, this film is based on a true story. Before I went to see the film, I thought the movie was going to suck, but it turned out alright. Below is my review for this film. Like every other schoolwork articles I posted, I also got a good mark for this review.

Tony’s Guide on Super Smash Bros. for N64

This is probably the longest guide i have ever written. You can tell by the title that this is a guide about Super Smash Bros., a popular video game for the now ancient N64.

This guide covers all aspects of Smash, including characters, strategies and techniques. This guide has been overhauled to use a table-less layout in the summer of 2007. Click here to visit.

“Discontinuing Silent Reading” Essay

This is another essay written by for my grade 10 summer school essay writing course. This one is about the silent reading period my secondary school has. All my fellow students know what I am talking about. This essay argues against silent reading. I don’t really hate silent reading, but I rarely read during this period. Usually I do my homework so I don’t have to do them at home.

This essay is also written in a five by five format, which means five paragraphs and about five sentences in a paragraph. Needless to say, I got an A for this effort. Read it and see if you agree or disagree with my view point.

English Short Story

TJ’s Guide to Big Two

This article was a project I made for my grade 11 web class. For those for you who don’t know, this guide is about Big Two, a type of card game played mainly by people of the eastern and southeastern Asian origins. It’s a really popular card game at my high school until the administration got an excuse and banned it for good. Originally, this guide was made entirely using Flash, which was cool, but it’s not very accessible, so I later decided to make a HTML version available to those who prefer traditional web pages to Flash documents, but after some time, this new website still didn’t manage to draw a lot of visitors, so I finally decided to include it within my main site instead.
