Apply for your NDP tickets now!

E-Balloting for NDP tickets has officially began.

If the NDP EXCO Members are reading this, I would like to tell them that I’ve never gotten any NDP tickets thru E-Balloting. The last time I went for NDP parade is in 2002, and I was in the middle of the field, wearing number 4, full camo on, holding a SAR21 and marching. I can’t remember went was the last time I went NDP as an audience. Sometime back in Primary school if I remember correctly.

Please….. let me win the E-Balloting this time.

Singapore has frozen

Remember the Singapore Freeze that I talked about? They did it yesterday infront of Ngee Ann City.

Too bad I was held up and didn’t get to join them.

Starhub blocking BitTorrent Traffic

A recent studies by Max Planck Institute for Software Systems shows that some ISP around the world has been blocking P2P traffic (AKA BitTorrent)

Surprisingly, Singapore’s Starhub rank 3rd in the list, blocking 26 out of 45 tests.

1. All hosts which observed blocking did so in the upstream direction (i.e., when the client host attempted to upload data to one of our Glasnost servers). Only a handful of hosts observed blocking for downstream BitTorrent transfers.

2. We found widespread blocking of BitTorrent transfers only in the U.S. and Singapore. Interestingly, even within these countries, most of the hosts that observed blocking belonged to a few large ISPs.

3. Both in the U.S. and in Singapore, all hosts that suffered BitTorrent blocking are located in cable ISPs. We did not see any blocking of BitTorrent transfers from DSL hosts in these countries.

Congrats Starhub. Number 3 in the world. Woohoo!
I’m so glad I’m on Singnet.

Lunch at 3am

Woke up at 10plus today. Caught up at work until 4pm. Didn’t managed to eat anything. Went swenson and ordered lots of food. Even ordered a earthquake for dessert.

Was feeling hungry at 3am again. Went to the Mcdonalds downstair to buy the usual.

20 pieces of McNuggets
1 large fries
1 bottle of hoegaarden

If the first meal of the day is Breakfast and the second meal is Lunch, then this is my lunch.

I think I’ll skip dinner today.

Now I understand Cobalt Paladin’s frustration

I always told Cobalt Paladin that there is no need to blog anonymously. Could never understand why the need to go under a Optimus Prime mask. Until lately when I encountered his kind of frustration.

Encountered several events recently that really pissed me off. The usual DK would just post those frustration on his blog. But the thing is, these issues aren’t concerning just me. It is related to BLOG2u. And by writing about them, my writing not only represent myself, they also represent BLOG2u in some way. As an individual, I have no worries because it is just me. But as a company, I got my investors, my partner and my staffs that I need to worry about.

Although they are clearly in the wrongs, as a company, we can’t go around blasting them online. Although this is my personal blog, I can’t blog freely about them here as people will surely link my words here to the company.

I’m so tempted to start another blog somewhere in the blogsphere. Do it anonymously so that I can write about the things that these companies are doing. At least I can vent my anger and frustration there.
