### 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
http://www.st701.com/

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.

### Microsoft mulls rushing out IE patch

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.

### Paging Using AJAX

Rocks! One should try out.

### Worker's Party Come

I hereby invite Worker's Party to drop by Ang Mo Kio and contest in the coming General Election. I want to cast my first divine vote!

### Still At Work

At this hour, I am still at work!

### 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

### Windows Live Beta

Thumbs Up! It is a serious contender to Google.

I will try to rectify the problem as soon as possible whenever time permits.

### 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.

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)
Post articles on ASP / VB tips and techniques.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.

It was a dream to work in Microsoft but now, Google is going to be the other dream employer for IT professionals. It is so often that Google release yet another competing product.

### 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).

I sometimes don't eat breakfast just to save money.

### 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 went for my pre-employment medical checkup with X-ray yesterday at OUB Centre Raffles Medical Group. All results turned out fine.

### 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.

### In Case You Lost Your HP

For the very absent-minded people (See Below)

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.
