What does wireless@sg really mean?

I got this screen instead of the usual login screen yesterday after logging on to the wireless@sg network at Bishan J8.

Its appears to me that they didn’t set up the wireless access point properly and we are being send to the admin page. And no, I can’t access internet as I haven’t got the chance to login yet.

We all know that the word ‘Google’ is a verb meaning to use the Google search engine to obtain information on the Internet. It was officially added to Oxford English Dictionary (OED) on June 15, 2006, and to the 11th edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary in July 2006.

Sometimes, I wonder…. if the word wireless@sg has a verb meaning, what would it be?

I guess wireless@sg as a verb can best used to describe “Without internet connection”. After all, I’ve already lost count of the number of times I see a wireless@sg access point yet still can’t log onto the internet.

是谁抢走了我的麦克风

I was quite shocked when T told me that Ishi from Soul has just passed away. I don’t really know him personally, but I met him several times while helping out the guys at Soul some where around this time last year.

I tried searching for news article about his departure, but couldn’t find any. and only found one here. Not much was said in the blogs and fan group/forums either. I guess the fans left when the group decided to disband.

Rest in Peace dude.

Aerosmith – I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing

Since we have a song from Armageddon soundtrack yesterday, why not post another one today?

Will go back to my usual blogging soon. In the meantime, enjoy the music.

Aerosmith – I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing,
Watch you smile while you are sleeping,
While you’re far away and dreaming,
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender,
I could stay lost in this moment forever,
Well, every moment spent with you,
Is a moment I treasure

I don’t wanna close my eyes,
I don’t wanna fall asleep,
‘Cause I’d miss you, baby,
And I don’t wanna miss a thing,
‘Cause even when I dream of you,
The sweetest dream would never do,
I’d still miss you, baby,
And I don’t wanna miss a thing

Lying close to you,
Feeling your heart beating,
And I’m wondering what you’re dreaming,
Wondering if it’s me you’re seeing,
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we’re together,
And I just wanna stay with you,
In this moment forever, forever and ever,

I don’t wanna close my eyes,
I don’t wanna fall asleep,
‘Cause I’d miss you, baby,
And I don’t wanna miss a thing,
‘Cause even when I dream of you,
The sweetest dream would never do,
I’d still miss you, baby,
And I don’t wanna miss a thing

I don’t wanna miss one smile,
I don’t wanna miss one kiss,
Well, I just wanna be with you,
Right here with you, just like this,
I just wanna hold you close,
Feel your heart so close to mine,
And just stay here in this moment,
For all the rest of time

Don’t wanna close my eyes,
Don’t wanna fall asleep,
‘Cause I’d miss you, baby,
And I don’t wanna miss a thing,
‘Cause even when I dream of you,
The sweetest dream would never do,
‘Cause I’d still miss you, baby,
And I don’t wanna miss a thing

I don’t wanna close my eyes,
I don’t wanna fall asleep,
‘Cause I’d miss you, baby,
And I don’t wanna miss a thing,
‘Cause even when I dream of you,
The sweetest dream would never do,
I’d still miss you, baby,
And I don’t wanna miss a thing

Don’t wanna close my eyes
Don’t wanna fall asleep, yeah

I don’t wanna miss a thing
I don’t wanna miss a thing

Chantal Kreviazuk – Leaving on A Jet Plane

Chantal Kreviazuk – Leaving on A Jet Plane

I… I…

All my bags are packed
I’m ready to go
I’m standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

But the dawn is breakin’
This early mornin’
The taxi’s waitin’
He’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome I could cry

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go

I…
There’s so many times I’ve let you down
So many times I’ve played around
I tell you now
They don’t mean a thing

Every place I go, I think of you
Every song I sing, I sing for you
When I come back
I’ll wear your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time
Let me kiss you
Close your eyes
I’ll be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I won’t have to leave alone
About the time when I don’t have to say…

Oh, kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go

I’m leaving on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go

I’m leaving on a jet plane
leaving on a jet plane
leaving on a jet plane
leaving on a jet plane
I… leaving on a jet plane
I… leaving on a jet plane
I… leaving on a jet plane
I… leaving on a jet plane

Too Long For Twitter, Too Short For Blog #6

Sharks… I almost forgot completely about this.

I know how to repair printers
One of the printer in my office is having problem recently. The paper keep jamming during printing. A colleague reported the problem to me since I’m the duty LAN admin for the month. Thanks for seeing me so up. I really feel honored that you guys think I know how to repair printers too.

So I just went over see see look look. It appears that there is no problem doing normal printing. The paper will only jam when printing double side. I check the printer log and discovered that all the recent jam occur at the duplexer.

Conclusion, duplexer spoilt. Too bad we got no budget to get a new duplexer. Else I would had really ‘repaired’ the printer. Or maybe I should open up the duplexer and see if I can fix it myself. Hahaha….

Marking on MRT platform
Not sure if you notice, but there is some strange marking on the MRT platform lately.

Wondering what are they up to again this time. Hope the will not use it to increase the fare again.

Why guys carry PDA
There was a discussion on the Ping.sg forum about the date we choose for the ping.sg birthday party, 07-07-07. Nice and easy to remember. Then Missy commented that its good to choose these easy to remember date for wedding and stuff so that you won’t forget to celebrate the anniversary. Uzyn asked what if choose easy date and the guy still forget.

Well, there is a reason why guys use PDA. But sometimes, it even reminds you of dates you don’t want to remember.

Geek Terminal ahead
One of the most common problem is that people can’t find Geek Terminal. Well, don’t worry. They just put up a signage recently. Can see from far.

Chio right?
