Choo Choo Choo Part 1

In order to celebrate the graduation of Shirli and Wai Lumn and before the railway track closes (more of the latter :P), 7D goes on a trek from Rail Mall to Bukit Timah Railway Station.

The railway bridge that 67 always goes under.

Class Outing!

i am terribly honoured that nik has arrowed me to plan the next class outing. it shall be in late july/early august when everyone is back and before school starts (for those of us who have yet to graduate)(congrats to those who have!! =D)

the destination: (unknown, please suggest)
the activity: (unknown , please suggest) + dinner + post dinner (unknown, please suggest)
time: 1.30pm (after lunch)

the blog is a tad stale; guess everyone has been caught up with work. hohum! hope that everyone has been having a great time no matter where you are =) life is sometimes a blur and some aspects of it may seem directionless at some point in time or another..

perhaps it looks better that way, with the colours of objects blending into each other; the picture appears more flawless when you don't look at the grainy imperfect bits. maybe all of us need such moments to make us realise that we need better lens and a better perspective.

Updates updates

The blog has a new url, look at the address bar! Don't worry, the original url (which everyone probably used =) still works. Both link to this.

Do make it a point to just come to this blog about once a week! (Yes, all of you) "The domain will expire after 90 days when less than twenty-five (25) users have been to your website." So do click here whenever you can! =)

  • I increased the width of the template (to fit on all those large screens most people have); whoever doesn't like it, click "funny" below
  • I added some advertisements (if you want a short ".tk" domain for yourself, do click on the ad on the right! It will help the 06s7d account earn referral points, and can offset for lack of visitors and stuff; whoever likes the new url, click "interesting" below
  • I increased the font size in general, so we don't have to strain so much. Whoever prefers the smaller font, click "cool" below
  • To the banner designer, a new banner would be cool. The new width is 1000px, and I think the imagemap coordinates are not lining up properly. Not sure about the code for <map>, if you can just modify the height and width directly?
  • If you have any other suggestions, please comment!

Tech Jokes to Keep you Happy on Vday

In line with the recent technical upgrades of the blog by Ben, let's have some tech-related jokes for laughs!

Tech Support

Just in case you think you are TC (technologically challenged). The following is an excerpt taken from a Wall Street Journal article:

1.Compaq is considering changing the command "Press Any Key" to "Press Return Key" because of the flood of calls asking where the "Any" key is.

2.AST technical support had a caller complaining that her mouse was hard to control with the dust cover on. The cover turned out to be the plastic bag the mouse was packaged in.

3.Another Compaq technician received a call from a man complaining that the system wouldn't read word processing files from his old diskettes. After trouble-shooting for magnets and heat failed to diagnose the problem, it was found that the customer had labeled the diskettes, then
rolled them into the typewriter to type the labels.

4.Another AST customer was asked to send a copy of her defective diskettes. A few days later a letter arrived from the customer along with photocopies of the floppies.

5.A Dell technician advised his customer to put his troubled floppy back in the drive and close the door. The customer asked the tech to hold on, and was heard putting the phone down, getting up and crossing the room to close the door to his room.

6.Another Dell customer called to say he couldn't get his computer to fax anything. After 40 minutes of trouble-shooting, the technician discovered the man was trying to fax a piece of paper by holding it in front of the monitor screen and hitting the "send" key.

7.Yet another Dell customer called to complain that his keyboard no longer worked. He had cleaned it by filling up his tub with soap and water and soaking the keyboard for a day, then removing all the keys and washing them individually.

8.A Dell technician received a call from a customer who was enraged because his computer had told him he was "bad and an invalid". The tech explained that the computer's "bad command" and "invalid" responses shouldn't be taken personally.

9.A confused caller to IBM was having troubles printing documents. He told the technician that the computer had said it "couldn't find printer". The user had also tried turning the computer screen to face the printer - but that his computer still couldn't "see" the printer.

10.An exasperated caller to Dell Computer Tech Support couldn't get her new Dell Computer to turn on. After ensuring the computer was plugged in, the technician asked her what happened when she pushed the power button. Her response, "I pushed and pushed on this foot pedal and
nothing happens." The "foot pedal" turned out to be the computer's mouse.

11.Another customer called Compaq tech support to say her brand-new computer wouldn't work. She said she unpacked the unit, plugged it in and sat there for 20 minutes waiting for something to happen. When asked what happened when she pressed the power switch, she asked "What power switch?"

12.True story from a Novell NetWire SysOp:

Caller: "Hello, is this Tech Support?"
Tech: "Yes, it is. How may I help you?"
Caller: "The cup holder on my PC is broken and I am within my warranty period. How do I go about getting that fixed?"
Tech: "I'm sorry, but did you say a cup holder?"
Caller: "Yes, it's attached to the front of my computer."
Tech: "Please excuse me if I seem a bit stumped, It's because I am. Did you receive this as part of a promotional, at a trade show? How did you get this cup holder? Does it have any trademark on it?"
Caller: "It came with my computer, I don't know anything about a promotional. It just has '4X' on it." At this point the Tech Rep had to mute the caller, because he couldn't stand it. He was laughing too hard. The caller had been using the load drawer of the CD-ROM drive as a cup holder, and snapped it off the drive!

13.Another IBM customer had troubles installing software and rang for support. "I put in the first disk, and that was OK. It said to put in the second disk, and had some problems with the disk. When it said to put in the third disk - I couldn't even fit it in..." The user hadn't realized
that "Insert Disk 2" meant to remove Disk 1 first.

14.In a similar incident, a customer had followed the instructions for installing software. The instructions said to remove the disk from it's cover and insert into the drive. The user had physically removed the casing of the disk and wondered why there were problems.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm reminiscing about secondary school and JC and I'm missing the "friendship day" thing too! The days when girls (and boys) would bake + bring flowers + make trinkets for all their friends!

I'm really really missing it! Anyway, I was in Vegas recently and remembered all of you gambling/playing bridge every day...

It's been 4 years since we graduated in 2007 (and my brain has obviously rotted a bit, as I took some time to figure out the year). Haven't been caring about the blog at all, but just today I was looking through every post right from the very start...

(links are listed in chronological order)

2006 Hall of fame
That's all for the year of 2006. The links on the left <--- (archives with the huge 'a') serve to bring you down memory lane.

I'll go through 2007 and beyond another time!

PS. can someone make me moderator or just send me the template code pls? I want a copy to keep cos I lost mine in my computer...

PPS. here is a graph of the number of posts per month: (courtesy of
Number of posts by month
(since this is a class blog contributed by ppl who did graphs before, can anyone explain the trend? [10])

Switch to posterous

I propose a switch to posterous blogging service (

It's easy to migrate, and even easier to post; just add everyone as a contributor, and from then on, everyone can just go to their email, type up a post to, attach all photos and whatever rubbish you guys want to attach, and bam, it'll be up and showing on the blog.

Check out their FAQ, and all those in favour, say aye.

PS. I think the idea isn't really taking off with many. Another idea, how about we all chip together (about 10 USD per year) to purchase Admittedly, there's no real purpose except to look cool.

Hello everybody!

Here is a pic of my cousin Maximilliam, my brother and me. No prizes for guessing who's who (obviously i'm the most handsome)

He is half-german (!), works as a firefighter (!!!), has not visited S'pore in the past 10 years and is in town over these 2 weeks. He has lots of entertaining stories, which I realized after getting past staring at his biceps for 10min when I first saw him.

Niklas Wong, he puts you to shame :P maybe your intel will beats him la heheh.
