Makes browsers render all elements more consistently

A modern, HTML5-ready alternative to CSS resets - Normalize.css - makes browsers render all elements more consistently and in line with modern standards. It precisely targets only the styles that need normalizing.

How to stop FortiClient from starting automatically?

Installed FortiClient recently but the challenge in disabling the application/service from running automatically on every start-up annoyed me. Attempt to stop 'FortiClient Service Scheduler' only return 'Parameter is incorrect' error message.

An article on Technet help solve my trouble. To stop FortiClient from starting automatically, try the following:
Shut down FortiClient from the system tray.
Run net stop fortishield on command prompt.
Run msconfig.
On msconfig, switch to the Services tab. Clear the FortiClient Service Scheduler check box and click Apply.Run services.msc on command prompt to open up show all available services.Look for FortiClient Service Scheduler. Switch Startup type to Manual.Restart your computer. FortiClient should not be running automatically the next time round. Hope it helps.
QET next week

My friend admitting to NTU this month had had their QET few days back and from them, their QET's format was straightforward and questions to me was simple. 2 close passages with some blanks for students to fill in and a 300 words essay to be written from many topics to choose from. Topics available to choose from are like "Why do you choose NTU?", "Describe one major recent event just happened in your country", "What do you want to do in the future?", etc. Very simple to write essay with 300 words limit. But then for NUS, it is a very different story. 1 close passage with many grammatical phrases underlined for you to edit and a 500 words essay to write. Before writing the essay, there will have 3 pre-reading topics for students to ponder and then a lengthy topic related article to read from. There is only ONE essay TOPIC to write on and it can be like "how your country's goverment can help reserve the originality of tourist spot…
