F1 car in Pulau Pinang!

the Girls the MEHonda RA106 the-N-gine

On 24th February 2006. Honda Racing F1 Team's promotion tour are held for 3 days in Gurney Plaza. I was lucky to arrive there, and get to take pictures with the 'gadis litar'. I believe this promo is to celebrate Honda 100% ownership of formerly BAR Honda, and realisation of Soichiro Honda's dream having all Japanese F1 team. There's Sony Playstation PS2 F1 racing competition. WInners will get ONE (I think) ticket to Malaysian Grand Prix 2006. Enjoy the 'gambar's (photos).

Old problem rise again

yesterday, i was changing my PC. I replaced the 2x256MB(one sided) RAM with 1x128MB(two sided) and 1x256(one sided). After reboot my computer, then i found the word "KERNEL PANIC" on my screen. After exausted on ideas how to fix the problem, (and later being scared by Wikipedia that (in my simple interpretation) my computer is dying, and linux needs to be reinstall), then I ask on of PPKT linux expert (who will move across the sea to Kuala Lumpur), rezdrake. Rezdrake then said that I need to undid what I done, that is use the same TWO one sided 256MB RAM, It works.

Since I want to change the RAM, I then try 1x128MB(two sided) and 1x256(one sided). I later found that these two cannot sits together, not because their megabytes are different, buat their architecture ot the one/two sided thingy are different. I have no problem of using 128MB RAM alone or 256MB alone. I choose the latter.

I then change back the monitor from 'pinjam' LCD flat monitor to my old CRT monitor. There's was error. I can't linux in GUI. The fix for this problem can be found from Linux Questions. Which reminds me that 'hey, I had done this before'

Civilization IV

I am just finishing my Civilization IV. Whew... it's really an addictive game... verryyy addictive.

The new game meets my satisfaction. Now I can search technology and found (find) religion, and therefore has holy city. I can play Saladin.

Like I said before, this game is addictive, I consume lot's of my free time, usually 5 or 6 hours per game. I need to stop playing and put more concertration to my daily chores and works (err... study for work, eg. PHP programming and LINUX). Then I can finish my job task like create LINUX class study module, and may be website programming.

I am still not good in English writing (as you can see in this posting), I think I need to learn from year 4 (for children at the age of 10), then continue. I even thinking of checking/study my child (may be I have one in the future) English workbook with my wife (hopefully I'll married in a year time) to start english from beginning... heheh I think my fiancee should start English at Year 1 hehe.

Jyllands-Posten's Prophet Muhammad's (s.a.w.) cartoon controversy


I hereby support the muslims outrage over the world regarding the Prophet Muhammad's (s.a.w.) cartoon controversy.

With American media are so careful not to hurt muslim feelings with 'muslim jokes', how come Jyllands-Posten and some of European media has the heart to published the cartoon? They published it without respecting muslims sentiment.

Being a muslim, I believe you should take some action with these INSULTs. If you like to see these INSULTS, search Google for these cartoons with the keyword "Jyllands-Posten+Muhammed"
