Scratch and Win!

I got my satria another scratch, again!!!! this is the 4th ones. Either it were because my driving competencies or because of *luck* or things like that.

[1] Blind spot. Dapat lekuk sebab reverse keta kat anjung rahmat. Need RM80 utk ketuk,RM200 if you want ketuk+cat sekali

[2] Rough parking. Maya hotel. Bumper depan scratch,besau lak tu.... Good for me.

[3] Ntah ade ape kat Jalan masuk MRR2 tadi,semua orang nak berkerumun ke tepi jalan belah kiri. ade seorang mamat yang ntah ape-ape pun turun moto nak seberang jalan...wah...aku drive lane laju di selamba ayam je turun ke hiway...wah.... aku brake emergency dan keretaku berputar 225 degrees,nasib tak kena hentam kereta belakang...alhamdulillah dia selamat... tapi kereta aku bila check tadih.....ada scratch... complete dengan crack kat fiber sekali....wah......aku pun selamat gak... tapi lain kali toleh la kiri kanan sebelum nak menyeberang tuh... dan ape punya perangai berenti nak tengok event menarik tu....menyusahkan aku betul la.

end of file.

I forgot my laptop charger

I want to use my laptop and suddenly I realized I left it at my sister's house-and she with her husband going back to Melaka. And I will be going to Skudai this afternoon. Nasib badan.

And MSD asking for the research proposal. Aiyo...

Call for Compaq Laptop Charger!
Finding Journals and Writings for Literature Review

Obiwan(Usin) gave CiteSeer link to me to find out writings for my proposal. Tq Bro. Ada link lain tak? Saya budak baru belajar :D

Nak tulis BI ke BM? I think since my blog is dual language, I opt to write in BM pulak. heh.

All of us went back to KL after hours trip from Skudai.

Semalam baru balik dari SLAB week 1. Harini cuti Wesak, and to get myself "net"ted, go to office instead. Malam tadi,on the way back to KL, my colleauge SMS, kata office nak research proposal... alamak, aku punya literature review belum matang lagi. Ke nak kasi proposal separuh masak. Sebelum2 ni tak dengar lak kena kasi RP yg complete. So.. buat je lah dan send by email. Ahad kang nak kena balik Pulai Spring lagi (best weh!). Cuma takde broadband internet connection . Isk. Ada laptop takleh online :maksudnya kena onkan laptop utk buat Literature Review lah tuh. huhu.

Masa kelas Literature Search di PSZ UTM semalam(mypapit, ko nye number henset ape eh?), berkenal-kenalanlah dengan journal/abstract database search tools: ScienceDirect
Time kelas ni ada lak Br Adli's sister. Kebetulan lak.

Honestly,masih banyak yang aku tak tau untuk buat research ni.... dan baru aku faham apa tujuan Phd tu.. dan macam-macam lagilah.

Me: Enjoy my SLAB

FOSS: Academician's Role

Currently I am preparing my pre-research proposal-on Distributed Computing. Just wondering in my 26 years old and dealing with people ages far with me, sometimes I got a thought whether should academician start his/her this young? But looking there are ppl around me who start his Phd at my age, I believe it doesn't matter.

I dropped to my youngest bro's blog who's currently doing BioCell/Tech-donno which one since his blog didn't really tell what exactly he's doing. Seems the nature of research in Purdue really makes him enjoy the world of academics. Hehe. But he enjoys play soccer. Good for him.

Back to FOSS. I'm thinking how to integrate FOSS OS(which perhaps i try to relate ut with Gentoo since I like it because some reasons) with my research.
Previously I met Maho who into FreeBSD so much for his area(chemistry if not mistaken).
And that leads him to ports committer. (Wondering whether I also qualify for soon huhu).
To make my research is not syok sendiri,how to make it beneficial to people. I can do research that only give small portion of benefit to people, but why?

Nvm. since this is my blog,i just want to put my thought here. Currently googling for bioinformatics' PDF and distributed computing's PDF. Lotsof reading need to be done. Huhu.

Distributed Computing, Grid, Bioinformatics

Heh. SLAB training lak. Kena pegi UTM Skudai 2 minggu. Lepas tu kena pi workshop kat Genting. Peh...

Skrg tengah pening-pening lalat le... nak tulis research proposal..isk 5 pages je. Aku nak concentrate on Distributed Computing, dan berminat nak combine ngan bioinformatics....

Tengok pakej-pakej menarik dalam Gentoo dan Debian... just wondering what i'm going to do?
And is the project feasible in one SEMESTER period.....

Apa-apa ajer......
