TMNet says, Jaring says…

January 13, 2007

So I was going through TMnet’s and Jaring’s website trying to find out more information about when they expected Malaysia’s internet performance to be fully restored. Both their websites had different predictions as to when it would be.

TMnet first:

Apparently they said that the internet performance would be at around 80% yesterday and expected to be at 100% by 20th of January.

Jaring next:

They however said that they are currently at 70% and would expect full recovery in middle February.

I really hope both their predictions are exclusive to their own companies and also their own internet infrastructure whereby both ISPs should not be in the same boat. In short hopefully TMnet _would_ be able provide us back-to-normal internet speed by 20th Jan and would be too bad for Jaring customers having to wait till middle of February. Not to sound selfish or anything but it just would not be nice to keep us speed-deprived internet users from what we rightfully deserve for what we pay.


Job Requirements

Either the employer is really a sexist or just hard up for girls.
I was looking around jobstreet.com and I came across this job ad with two very interesting requirements.


Fickle-mindedness

January 8, 2007

This is something that’s happening to me. Being caught in two minds, sometimes more. As of now, I seriously don’t feel like studying anymore. I want to start working, and earn my own money. On the other hand, I’m almost done with my studies, just another 4 to 5 months to go. But its at this particular point in time that I don’t feel like completing my studies. It probably has to do with my final year project, seeing as how I’m still struggling with it. Think its also some sort of an escape route, taking the easy way out. Although I know that is not the answer, I just can’t help but think about it, and resist the temptation of actually going through with it.

This isn’t the first time it has happened actually. I felt this way when I was working last time, mainly because I didn’t like what I was doing. Its funny how when you’re still a student, one would wish that it’d be nice to work, but when they are actually working, one would wish that it’d be nice to be able to study again. We humans are so fickle-minded.

No matter how hard I wish that I was working right now, I know it’s not going to happen. What I need to do is to suck it up and get my studies over and done with. Only then can I look for a job peacefully. I hate it, but there’s nothing much that I can do 😛  Perhaps I should stop doing things at the last possible minute already, even though I’ve said this countless times…I’m so hopeless 😕

I’ve decided, to make that my new year’s resolution. To not do things last minute anymore. And I need someone to give me a real knocking if I don’t do it. You interested, Neo? 😛

Something Ain’t Right Here…

January 3, 2007

So I was chatting with a friend who is working in Singapore. Apparently he says that the internet over there is fine and that he is even able to play World of Warcraft. While in Malaysia some sites do not even load properly and yeah I still cannot play World of Warcraft. Something is not right here… Perhaps Singapore has uber internet technology and Malaysia does not. Whatever it is, it is really frustrating. I cannot even look for jobs efficiently on the internet because of this.

You may be thinking “Oh surfing local sites should not be a problem.” That may be true. If and only if local sites were hosted by local servers. Which apparently most of them are not. Seriously though who would want to surf local websites? When there are far better quality sites out there internationally. This has nothing to do with patriotism by the way. Just a disclaimer to all you shallow people out there.

What a way to begin 2007…
