Earth Hour 2009

Greetings, how are you doing?

I am happy to announce that my PC is finally fixed and I am back online again hohoho~

Unfortunately, not exactly 100% fixed as I found out today. My PC will automatically shut itself down very often usually after using it for like 30 minutes or longer. Then I would have to wait about 5 minutes to turn it back on again. Sucks that tomorrow I will have to bring it to the computer shop again.

When I got my PC back, one of the first things I wanted to do was to create some art piece using photoshop. So there you have it (above). It's for Earth Hour 2009. It's an event sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund as part of a campaign to highlight the threat from global warming if you don't know. People in 88 countries in every time zone turned off or lowered their lights for one hour on Saturday.

So what did you do last Saturday? Did you turn your lights off? Sorry to say that I did not lol. However I did suggested to my mom to turn the lights off when came 8:30pm. Not amazingly my mom did not know about Earth Hour so turning the lights off would just make me seem crazy and interrupt the show on the TV that she was watching. Yeah, at least I was thinking about doing it right?

Nevermind that, I was invited to my friends' place for a BBQ. Er...I guess it was held to somewhat celebrate Earth Hour I guess? Or just trying to do something to kill time during the interval between 8:30pm and 9:30pm when the lights were off. The BBQ was great btw. Good food plus good company.

You know what's funny? My friends' place was the only one that I actually saw which turned off the lights among the houses in the neighbourhood. I did not see any lights coming from the house which is next to my friends' but that's only because the owner usually sleeps early. Unintentionally the owner was doing his or her bit for Earth Hour 2009 lol.

If you did turn off or lower your lights for Earth Hour, then you deserve to gain some karma points ;)

Here's another way to save electricity. Turn your computers off after hours. Try not to leave them overnight. Leaving computers on overnight = $2.8 billion a year.
