A** A*** Joke, Uncle Tony F ...

"Spare a thought for Uncle Tony F, Chief Executive of 'Air Asia"......

Arriving in a hotel in KL Sentral he went to the bar and asked for a pint of
draught Guinness. The barman nodded and said, "That will be one Ringgit
please, Uncle Tony."

Somewhat taken aback, Uncle Tony replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over
his money.

"Well, we try to stay ahead of the competition", said the
barman. "And we are serving free pints every Wednesday evening
from 6 until 8. We have the cheapest draught in Asia"

"That is remarkable value" Uncle Tony comments

"I see you don't seem to have a glass, so you'll probably need one of ours.
That will be 3 Ringgit please."

Uncle Tony scowled, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat.
"Ah, you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That'll be an extra 2 Ringgit
You could have pre-book the seat, and it would have only cost you a Ringgit"

"I think you may to be too big for the seat sir, can I ask you to sit in this
frame please"
Uncle Tony attempts to sit down but the frame is too small and when
he can't squeeze in
he complains "Nobody would fit in that little frame".

"I'm afraid if you can't fit in the frame you'll have to pay an extra
surcharge of RM 4
for your seat sir"

Tony swore to himself, but paid up. "I see that you have brought your
laptop with you" added the barman. "And since that wasn't pre-booked
either, that will be another 3 Ringgit"

Uncle Tony was so annoyed that he walked back to the bar, slammed his drink on
the counter, and yelled, "This is ridiculous, I want to speak to the

"Ah, I see you want to use the counter," says the barman, "that will
be 2 Ringgit please." Uncle's face was red with rage.

"Do you know who I am?"

"Of course I do Mr Fernandes

"I've had enough, What sort of Hotel is this? I come in for a quiet drink
and you treat me like this. I insist on speaking to a manager!"

"Here is his E mail address, or if you wish, you can contact him
between 9 and 9.10
every morning, Monday to Tuesday at this free phone number. Calls are free,
until they are answered, then there is a talking charge of only 10 sen
per second provided you use Tune Talk using other mobile carriers
would incur our normal charges of 30 Sen per second

"I will never use this bar again"

"OK Uncle , but remember, we are the only bar in Asia selling pints
for one Ringgit...so that Now everyone can drink "

Post Grad (2009)

I just finish watching Post Grad. You can click on the link above for more information about the movie. I give 4 star out of 5 for that movie.

The story is about a cute girl called Ryden Malby, graduated from collage and starts to look for job. She concentrate and worry a lot about her future, jobs, and forgets about her "cute" family and people around her. One phrase I like the most from the movie is:

What you do with your life is really just one half of the equation. The other half, the more important half really, is who you're with when you're doing it.

What the movie are trying to say is sometimes we forgot about the most important thing and person in our life. Once we start getting busy in our work/job, we will forget about our family, ignoring the most important things in our life.

My First Nanoblock (Grand Piano)

I came across with the ActionCity booth at City Square Johor today, and I found this very nice block toy called nanoblock. It is very similar to Lego building block, but the difference the size of this nanobloc is smaller compare to Lego. You can visit its official site at http://www.diablock.co.jp/nanoblock/ for more information about it (the site is in japanese, you can use this google translate link for the translation to english: http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.diablock.co.jp%2Fnanoblock%2F). 

I bought this nanoblock Grand Piano package for RM27.9 (standard pricing for this package is RM32.9, but they gave RM5 discount for the promotion period).

Acer HS244HQ 3D LCD Monitor

I just received the Acer HS244HQ LCD Monitor (not belong to me). We bought it for a research project in UTM. Basically the research project requires a 3D capable monitor to display some 3D graphics. This monitor will be connected to Dell Alienware M11x via HDMI 1.4a port, which is available in this monitor and also M11x. From what I found, HDMI 1.4a is the latest technologies in HDMI that allows the PC/Laptop to transfer 3D Stereoscopic contain to the monitor using single HDMI communication. Most of the 3D LCD Monitor use Dual DVI link for the 3D contain, but only few models like this Acer HS244HQ uses HDMI 1.4a for the 3D contain (thats the reason we choose this model).

How to: Install Google Chrome on ubuntu 11.10 (64-bit)

I just finish installing a fresh copy of Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit. One of my first thing to do is to install Google Chrome.

How to: Ubuntu Automount a Drive on Startup

One thing ubuntu is different compare to Windows is ubuntu do not automatically mount all the partition/drive on the system during startup. Under the file explorer for ubuntu, you can click on any drive to mount it, and you can also unmount it anytime you want. There will be problems when you have an application that is auto start with your ubuntu and that application need to access the files under the unmounted drive.

To solve this problem, you can configure the drive to automount everytime your ubuntu started. Run this command under your terminal to install Storage Device Manager:
sudo apt-get install pysdm
After the installation completed run Storage Device Manager from Unity (press Super key and type Storage Device Manager).

ubuntu 11.10 Installing ATI Driver FGLRX

My laptop, Dell 1555, comes with the graphic card ATI 4570. After having the fresh install of ubuntu 10.11, it pop out an installation for additional Drivers, which are asking me to install the driver for my graphic card. There are 2 available options:
  • ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver (post-release updates)
  • ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver
One with post-release updates, and one without. After searching for which one to install, I found this page, http://askubuntu.com/questions/66707/differences-between-the-2-fglrx-graphics-drivers

From that page, one of the answer says that the one with 'post release updates' will install Catalyst 11.9 (latest version) and the one without 'post release updates' will install Catalyst 11.8, and there has been issues with the 11.9 driver with Unity.

The safest bet is to install the Catalyst 11.8 (the one without 'post release updates').

Hope the installation goes well and the new driver can improve the performance of my ubuntu.

I Just Install Latest ubuntu 11.10 64-bit

I just complete the installation of ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop, and currently writing this article using preinstalled firefox browser. For me I always like to try out different OS, latest Windows 8, ubuntu, and I even tried out hackintosh previously when I am still using desktop PC.

This new version of ubuntu, I will say the outlook is quite nice, with the new unity feature by ubuntu. For the functionality, I am still exploring, and hope that one day I will be able to write some application for ubuntu. I believe in the future, everyone will be using open source OS and open source application.

Re-spray Rusty Tweezer

I have a tweezer, quite old and rusty, but it is very "solid" tweezer that is perfect for SMD soldering. It actually belongs to my grandfather, and I think he made it himself, and its really a nice tweezer. But it is quite rusty, and I feel like I need to wash my hand every time after I use it. So, I decide to respray the tweezer using white paint spray (use it previously for my model toy car).
