Can The Things We Love Us Back Just The Same?

When Five Fell is certainly the work I admire most from Wesley Chan. He writes the most beautiful stories, and it never fails to touch our hearts. No matter how many people I show this video to, everyone is just amazed by it. It just goes to show what power he has in conveying his thoughts, feelings and emotions through his videos and his words (script).

When Five Fell

The morning is when she lingers. It’s before the world wants anything from her and that’s when she’s most beautiful. It’s true that not many saw her like that but I can’t say I was the only one. Even though we each have our own beginnings, mornings like this were shared between us all.

She used to tell people that it was like the world was drawn with a dull piece of charcoal. That was before me. Now she sees things my way, it makes a little more sense. This is me. If I’m meant for anything, it’s to show her the world. Is that so bad? The quiet morning like the many before it, calm and comfortable, but comfort can terribly blinding. The difference with this particular morning is in a call. She smiles, for who? I can’t see anymore.

She tells me she wants to be a raindrop. She doesn’t mind falling as long as she’s not alone and raindrops are never alone. She always had a new story to tell me: today it’s about being a raindrop. I wish I could’ve been there cause stories aren’t always enough and words can only go so far. This is me. Sometimes I wonder if she’s still talking to me or

If I’m just eavesdropping. It used to be everyday, sometimes for hours, sometimes for minutes. I think relationships are based on communication but her words however sweet and real sounds so distant and now, they float pass me so effortlessly as if they were meant for someone else.

She must know what she does to me; her every touch, every time she holds my hands, every time she hold me close. This is me. If you hold my hand I’ll be yours forever. A simple promise, that’s all I can offer. Is it enough? It may be too late for me, it may be too late.

Anyone can look from a distance. A stranger can look from a distance, what’s so special about that? But, to know her scent is something else. It means we’ve been close, closer than anyone else. I dare say I’m lucky but when she doesn’t want me, when she’s away and it’s just her scent with me, I can only feel forgotten. This is me, left behind. Am I the stranger now?

There are those nights when it’s just two of us and she softly hides in her own thoughts when only one thing seems to melt the cold sense: a kiss. This is me. Ask me what the perfect day tastes like and I’ll say her lips. And she was my first kiss, it has to mean something, something sure and true because a taste of a pure kiss can’t be shared. It’s the dreadfully romantic idea but there can only be one. The question is, am I the only one? I’m afraid the truth will break me, but her kiss is convincing: I’m not her only one.

She said she wanted to be a raindrop and today it finally broke us. She’d found her own to fall with, her own to fall for. Today she was a raindrop.

The glasses represent sight. In a relationship, there are times when our one desire is to share with the other person. We hope to offer a new perspective. To learn and grow from each other in that way. To show the world. Unfortunately, nothing stays clear forever. Many things can blind us: jealousy, doubt, over thinking, and ironically, comfort.

The phone represents hearing. Relationships can’t exist without listening and communication. Sometimes, circumstances prevent people from communicating face to face. That distance greatly effects them. We hear about experiences when what we really want is to live them. Words can only go so far. The phone is interesting because it is constantly eavesdropping on our talks. What would that feel like? To always be talked to but never the subject of conversation. It must hurt to be so unknowingly ignored.

The umbrella represents touch. The very simple idea of being close enough to touch someone. Physical contact. To be able to hold, cover, protect. These are basic parts of a relationship we hope to fulfill. Essentially an umbrella reflects occasional necessity. But who would want that? To feel needed when it’s only convenient.

The scarf represents smell. The intimacy of knowing someones scent is very special. It’s a privelege that isn’t easily shared and is often overlooked. It may sound ridiculous, but who are the people you can identifty with smell? Most likely those that you are very close with. People you have known for more than awhile. Also, scents can fade. Physical contact carries and transfers a scent but when that contact disappears, the scent is no longer.

The cup represents taste. More specifically, the cup represents a kiss. And a kiss is the most universal symbol of love and affection. The fact that it describes a first kiss is even more significant. A first kiss is innocent and naive. We cherish it as though it will last forever. But when the cup is broken, the kiss is no longer possible– just like a relationship.

A pair of glasses that goes blind. A phone that resorts to eavesdropping. An umbrella that longs to be held. A scarf that treasures scent. A cup that wants to be kissed. These are the ways I tried to personify the objects to show they fell in and out of love. Between the five, viewers should be able to relate to different dimensions and roles of a relationship. Whether it’s budding in the early stages, the challenge of long distance, slowly fading feelings, or losing out to someone else. Even the order of the objects in the short show a progression in the relationship. Starting from looking and eventually moving onto touching.

How to run DOS programs in Windows 7 64bit

Here’s the general rule: If the DOS program ran in XP, it will probably run in a 32-bit version of Windows 7. But no DOS program can ever run in a 64-bit version of Windows 7.

Except that there’s a workaround. I’ll explain it in a minute.

If you’re not sure whether your Windows is 32- or 64-bit, click the Start orb, right-click Computer, and select Properties. Look for the System type.

You can launch most DOS apps in a 32-bit version of Windows 7 simply by double-clicking the DOS program’s .exe or .com file. If it doesn’t work, or if there are problems, right-click the file and select Properties. Click the Compatibility tab. Check the “Run this program in compatibility mode for” option and select an older version of Windows. You may have to do some experimenting to find the right one.

And if none of those work, try the 64-bit solution below.

Actually, there are several solutions, all of which involve using software to create a virtual machine (VM) inside Windows. If you want to run a lot of different operating systems inside Windows, VMware Player is probably your best bet.

But if all you’re only looking for is a way to run DOS programs, try DOSBox, a free program that launches a DOS VM. I can’t promise it will work with every program you throw at it, but it worked for every one I tried.

 

DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy to port to different platforms. DOSBox has already been ported to many different platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux, MacOS X…

DOSBox also emulates CPU:286/386 realmode/protected mode, Directory FileSystem/XMS/EMS, Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/VESA graphics, a SoundBlaster/Gravis Ultra Sound card for excellent sound compatibility with older games…

You can “re-live” the good old days with the help of DOSBox, it can run plenty of the old classics that don’t run on your new computer!

Once you download and install DOSBox, here’s how to set it up so that it can find and work with your DOS programs and files:

  1. Create a folder (just as an example, let’s call it C:\DOSFiles) and place in it every program and file you want DOSBox to access. You can use subfolders within that folder.
  2. Click Start, type notepad and press ENTER to bring up Notepad.
  3. Click Start, and select All Programs, DOSBox-0.74 (the version number may change), Extras, Screenshots & Recordings.
  4. This will open Windows Explorer to a probably empty folder inside the DOSBox configuration folder. In the path bar at the top of the window, click DOSBox to go to that folder.
  5. Drag the file dosbox-0.74.conf into Notepad. (The .conf part will probably not be visible.)
  6. In Notepad, go to the bottom of the file, where you’ll find the [autoexec] section.
  7. On a blank line at the end of the file, type mount driveletter path, where driveletter is the drive letter you wish to assign the folder to, and path is the path to that folder. For instance, mount a c:\dosfiles wil make the C:\DOSFiles folder appear as DOSBox’s drive A:.
  8. Save the file and launch DOSBox.

Download DOSBox

How to fix Delphi Assertion failure using Windows 7 64bit

 Assertion failure ..\win32src\thread32.cpp at line 434

For the ones who are using Delphi 2009 under Windows 7 (64-bits), this error will show up during the debugging of your applications. This just happened to me today and I found a really interesting solution on Embarcadero’s Forums. This just happened to me few days ago and I thought it was normal because of the OS, but then I realised that something was going wrong and every minute I got that annoying message leaving my applications non-functional and with the problem of restarting the Delphi IDE again.The solution provided is quite easy and I can guarantee you that it works!.
First of all, you need an hexadecimal editor. I used mh-nexus, an open source version that you can get from here. Then the steps for solving the issue are the following ones:
1. Close Delphi
2. Locate bordbk120N.dll (C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\6.0\bin)
3. Make a backup of the library (just in case).
4. Open bordbk120N.dll with mh-nexus and locate the hex values: “01 00 48 74 47 80 3D
5. Replace “74” with  “EB”and save the changes.
6. Restart Delphi and the error message should be gone.
