A tiring long weekend

The whole of Friday was spent working on CS5258 Assignment 2, reviewing an Information Security Policy, improving it, and writing a critique out of it. I am blessed to have two capable group members who are responsible and proactive enough to complete their given tasks, and sometimes doing more than required. Deadline of Apr 5 shouldn't be a problem at all.

On Saturday, most of my time was spent reading through and comparing a total of 5 research papers before finally selected the best for a literature review for my CS4236 Assignment 2. The next question is coming out with a decent practical solution to my problem - Secure Electronic Voting. This is an individual assignment due on Apr 10.

Time flies and today marks the last day of the long weekend. I better get started with my CS5322 Group Project else I will have nothing to show for this coming Tuesday's discussion. Time is equally tight for this and the deadline is less 2 weeks from now, which is Apr 15.

Other than the above 3 milestones, 1 quiz and 1 individual assignment, both for the sadistic CS5322 lecturer, await me.

Half a day left for me before I set off for my boss' baby girl 1-month event this evening.

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.

Speech by Mr Inderjit Singh on Population White Paper

People's Action Party MP, Mr Inderjit Singh, debated on the Population White Paper and put up his point across that he is against his own party's 6.9m projected population. I applaud his courage to stand up against the party whip and for his fellow Singaporeans.

His key points are;

Slow down immigration and focus on resolving all issue related to the past population boom.We can live with a slightly slower growth (not zero or slow growth) and hence moderate dependence on foreigners.Use the Dubai model to complement our local workforce with foreign workforce, but don’t grant them PRs – ie a transient workforce.Abandon the 6.9m figure by 2030, this will be another rapid growth which we cannot handle.Solve Singaporeans problems first and also don’t give PRs same privileges as citizens.
As published on Mr Inderjit Singh's Facebook status, the full speech made in the parliament is as below:
