Experience in GDC

I went down to the Goverment Data Centre today to perform migration of my People's Association files to staging. It is an eye opener to me. There are hundreds of servers hosted in the server room. CPF, MOM, MOH, etc.. and also of course my PA are all there. I wonder what will happen if the place is ...

Climbing Back Up Slowly

Ranked 112 overall. I doubt I will never be able to get back to my best 51st position again. 100 or better is my target

SPH's Job Search Portal - ST701

ST707 Website

Though the name of the website may sounds meaningless, all job seekers do visit the site for job hunting, at the same time don't bother to ask yourself how on earth the name ST701 was chosen. I see the name stupid.

Some Updates

Attended Angela Chang's concert in NUS on last Thu (2 days ago). I would say the concert was not very well organized. Outdoor, no air-con, no chairs, too short a concert, blah blah blah... Just too bad there wasn't enough tickets for yesterday's (Fri) NTU concert.

Result to Below Q

Chances are the below set of equations can be solved but the variables will not yield a unique value. In fact, there are infinite solutions to it.

(3) - (2):

20a + 20c = 4
=> (1)

So, in essense, you have only 2 equations, and three variables. So this set of equations has no unique solution. Hence, the set of solutions (a, b, c) can be:
(0.1, 0.15, 0.1) or (0.5, 0.05, -0.3), etc...

The solution can be expressed in the form of:

a = 1/5 - c
b = 1/8 + 1/4 c
c is real

Solve This Set of Simultaneous Equations

Challenge yourself!

4 = 20c + 20a
10 = 80b - 20c
14 = 20a + 80

Ideal for MsWord Beginners

The author of this site shared with EE experts yesterday and I thought it would be helpful to share with everyone. By the way, the author is a MVP for Microsoft Word.
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/index.html

I have long wanted to share my knowledge by posting it live somewhere but I never have the time to do it.

My To-Do List (But never going to be done)
  1. Post articles on ASP / VB tips and techniques.
  2. Make a CMS application for dynamic web creation and content population. For this, I have a clear picture as to how to go about doing it but I simply don't have the time.

Poor pupils in secondary school also need breakfast

I AM happy to learn that the Government is giving $1 a day to each child from a poor family for breakfast ('MOE to pick up tab for needy pupils' breakfasts'; ST, Feb 27).

Why not extend this assistance to pupils in secondary school too? Take Chong Boon Secondary School for example. It has poor pupils and one had only tap water for breakfast ('So poor she drank water for breakfast'; The New Paper, Jan 11).

Chomp Chomp Treat

I gave a treat yesterday to a total of 7 people (including myself) at Serangoon Gardens Chomp Chomp yesterday evening. These 7 people are my family members and girlfriends. I ordered 2 small-sized stingrays, 1 medium-sized hot plate tou fu, 1 large-sized gai lan, 7 chicken wings, 40 satay sticks and sugar cane drinks. They cost a total of $77.40.

I hope the varieties and quantities are enough for all.

Pre-Employment Medical Checkup

I Hate This

I hate people who are not appreciative at all when I have offered my service to solve a problem. There is no word of "Thanks" or whatsoever. If you don't know the rules of this world then don't get out of this place.

But I will wait for the Singapore Goverment to come out with their database. I ain't going to try the service by a third party.
