Demo Tomorrow

Got a program demo tomorrow. It's on assignment 1 but then now already I am working on assignment3. I cannot even remember exactly how each of my program functions work. Better get back and recall or else the lecturer may misunderstand that that program was not done by me.

Interesting Facts

1. Bill Gates earns US$250 every SECOND, that's about
US$20 Million a DAY
and US$7.8 Billion a YEAR!

2. If he drops a thousand dollar, he won't even bother
to pick it up bcoz
in the 4 seconds he picks it, he would've already earned it back.

3. The US national debt is about 5.62 trillion, if Bill
Gates were to pay the debt by himself; he will finish it in less then 10
years. ??????

4. He can donate US$15 to everyone on earth but still
be left with US$5
Million for his pocket money.

5. Michael Jordan is the highest paid athlete in US. If
he doesn't drink
and eat, and keeps up his annual income i.e. US$30
Million, he'll have to
wait for 277 years to become as rich as Bill Gates is now.

6. If Bill Gates was a country, he would be the 37th
richest country on

7. If you change all of Bill Gate's money to US$1
notes, you can make a
road from the earth to moon, 14 times back and forth.
But you have to make
that road non-stop for 1,400 years, and use a total of
713 BOEING 747 planes to transport all the money.

8. Bill Gates is 40 this year. If we assume that he
will live for another
35 years, he has to spend US$6.78 Million per day to
finish all his money
before he goes to heaven.

Oracle is Rich

Can't believe Lawerence Ellison is so rich. Oracle? They make a database, don't they? It's not even a particulaly good one, and it's hard to imagine that enough people have purchased it to put $36 billion into *anybody's* hands. Microsoft??? At least most of the people I know of spend hours using M$ products and that sounds reasonable Gates and Allan are so rich.

I found it! Got hold of some articles on why maths is important to computing students. However, am never convinced by them. I cannot post them here because they are copyrighted.

No Life

Where will you be able to find me? Nowadays, I will either be at home or in one of the many fast food restaurants in Singapore reading a book. Simply no life.

Test.. Tests... and more tests are around the corner.

Coincidence or Jinx

While watching the "Turn Left Turn Right" movie, I was thinking what had happened in my life that are of many coincidences. I do have some. I will name 1. I knew a girl (friend) whom I knew in NUS, lives few blocks away from me. We went to the same block but different class for tution in primary school. And now we met in NUS. Near her block used to have a tragedy (someone jumped off the building). Near my block also used to have a tragedy (fire). So the entire movie my mind was running through the fire incident, what happened, the aftermath, ....

Back home and was told by my family members that there was a fire in the very night I had my movie. Concidence or jinx?
Turn Left Turn Right

Watched "Turn Left Turn Right" chinese movie yesterday with a group of friends. Finally I got some relaxation :)

Site Hit Rate Drops

Sigh... my site hit rate has dropped. Last time hit rate can be that high till bandwidth provided by the host has exceeded but definitely not for now. How I wish I have the time to update my site.
Wonder Why Got To Take Maths

Have been wondering why Computer Science students need to learn Mathematics for quite some time. I will try to find out why and I will post here to share with everyone.

Ugly Singaporean

Was queuing up for food today at Ang Mo Kio S11 Central. Suddenly 2 aunties came and cut the queue. They requested for 2 packet of rice but the vendor ignored them and politely asked them to follow the queue. Not only did the aunties not feeling guilty at all, they even cursed the vendor. I was rather irritated by their curse. STARE THEM like goldfish.

Hail Seif Haridi Once More

Today's announcement
"on Saturday from 10:00-13:00 I will be in PCLAB2 soc1 8th fl. to help you with assignment 1"

He is just too good. I bet he will be spending most of the 3hrs coding for those in trouble. Thank god I found myself a more than capable partner to work with. Our working rate is 1 function/functionality per day. That is lightning speed.

I like Haridi (role model).

Feel So Helpless

Calculus... Calculus... Calculus...Someone please help me!
It is no longer the same as what I used to know what calculus is.

"Yes i understand what's going on and in fact it is easier than what I learnt previously" - comment from a Chinese from China!
Can't believe my ears.

Hail Haridi

Prof Haridi, my lecturer for Programming Language Concepts module is certainly going to be one of the nominees of Best Lecturer in NUS award. Ever seem any lecturers (I am excluding those from primary and secondary levels) staying back voluntarily solving students' doubts? Do not forget that time was late 6pm already (Tutorial ends at 5pm). His devotion is even more evident in the forums he created. Every single thread posted he will sure to reply.

Hard to find such a devoted lecturer in a University.
