Good Evening, My PC in the office just went through some updates. And as usual, Windows require restart in order to perform the updates. Usually Windows will pop-up a reminder to “Remind” user of the restart. This is an annoying reminder. We know and we will restart the PC eventually (sigh… Windows). They require restart in almost all updates. My Ubuntu PC never ask me to restart. I love my Ubuntu (Use it in both Office and Home)
Well, every now and then this bloody reminder pops up to gain my attention. Which I dismiss asap. I need to get my work done. Who on earth creates this reminder? How stupid of him. Windows should give an option “Don’t Show this Dialog Anymore for Good”. Since I am fed up with this reminder, I do a search in Google, Keyword : “disable windows update restart”. The first entry answers my call Disable Windows Update restart nag. A simple solution. Open CMD and paste this command “sc stop wuauserv“. The stupid reminder will be gone for good. And of course the Windows Update will return in the next reboot. Take Care
World of Warcraft is one of the best MMORPGs available today. Well this is the only MMORGP I ever played. I do not enjoy much of these on-line games. Sometimes it is wonderful. I prefer to solo. However, with WoW, you’ll need to have a group. World of Warcraft is the game I enjoy so much since Xbox 360. Until… one fateful day when DC continue to persist. One after another.
All I see is total blackness. My Karazhan raid, Alterac Valley Battle Ground, My earth signet, all seem to move away from me. The DC sickness is all around me. Loktaramish, Polatoo, Gemok and Duitloktar have not seen me in ages. I miss my toons. Spiteblade on Lokt’s back, Duitloktar and his Bank Suit and of course the total Gold with him. I miss them.
New router and new modem. Internet seems like to work normally. But, entering the virtual world of World of Warcarft, the most is 5 minutes then will be transported to Login Screen. Arghhhhhh. This ain’t hapenning. It has been 2 weeks, 14 nights without World of Warcraft.
To many it is a virtual world. As for me, it is the world of fun and glory. Killing as many Mobs in Kara as I can. Maximizing my DPS and seeking the path of the Champion or becoming the Master Assasin.
Sigh… Setupid TMNET!!!
All is well I hope for all of you. This is the second part of the previous post. I am so annoyed as I cannot play the World of Warcraft due to constant disconnection. TMNuts! what a nuisance of society. An abomination to Malaysia generally and Malaysians especially. So much of their play on line with TMNet. Well, you suck big time.
Okay, continuing with my memory at PLF.
There I had two colleagues, Ida and Nan. We were the librarian of Perdana Leadership Foundation (which they still do). Nothing much to say about these two.
Nan was already there during my 1st day in PLF. He served Perdana Library as System and Information Librarian. He still does. Hmmm, he had this name when I was there. I will not disclose it here, nothing to do with habits or anything disgraceful. That information is exclusively for those who had worked in PLF with me. He is a father now. Congratulations!!! You are 100% genuine male.
Ida, the only female in the library before the invasion of volunteers and students looking for internship. She was nice and hmmmm, never mind. A moody character which I do not understand. What do you expect? Men will never understand women. If anyone claims that he could understand and feel women. Spank him for me!!! Generally, she’s a okay. If anyone looking for a bride I can recommend one.
On technical side, is Mr. Murz. The only non-Librarian that resides in the library. PLF IT Administrator come photographer come prompter administrator. My partner in crime. He plays guitar. Tun Mahathir’s guitar is under his care. Well, what would Tun do with guitar. He can’t play guitar can he? It is better for such instrument be put under care of someone who can play.
All in all, Perdana Leadership Foundation was my foundation. It was there, I buill my skill. I had my own room there, with my name on the door. Where I could sleep under the table. Or sneak in if came in late. They are all memories now. I am no more in PLF, but I still love that place.
Hopefully all of you are having good health and living in prosperity. As for me, I am alive and kicking. May Allah bless you.
I am no more in Perdana Leadership Foundation. That place was very lovely, perhaps too lovely. I love that place. However, I had to move on. I am now with Open Univeristy Malaysia, and of course, as a librarian. There’s not much different in term of job responsibilities with PLF and OUM. I take care of the system here, manage iPortal and Database Subscriptions.
Library in Academic environment is very challenging. You have to work in shift to facilitate Library operating hours which is from 8.00AM – 8.00PM. Take turns to man the counter and do book shelving. Librarian does book shelving? Yeah, in OUM we need to multitask. We are small in numbers but we are great team players. Each of us knows what to do. And we get things done in no time.
I remember, when I was in PLF, my subordinate will do the shelving. I remember Kak Lat often whining of books not arranged properly. Shimie, do the shelving properly from now on!!! I am no more in PLF to speak for you.
My former Chief Librarian, En. Azahar who often joked around. He always said “Nyamuk Banyak la. Jom bunuh nyamuk!” hinting to go for smoke. He was nice, often belanja Adnan, Ida and me for makan-makan. Hail Mr. Azahar! I am sure he still belanja2 makan punya.
My GM, Puan Zarina, a very strict woman. She claimed she was not into jokes, but I knew she could laugh too. We often had differences but nothing more than jobs. She was nice anyway. Most of the foundation’s activities were headed by her.
Kak Lat, someone mistakenly took her as Datuk. Well, she’s like the mother of all staff in the library. What would we do if Kak Lat was not around? She whined a lot, but that’s okay, we could take it. The guardian of Che Det’s gift, books and such. Everything that was given to Mahathir local and abroad would have to go through her for cataloguing.
Tan Sri Nik or Pak Nik (our informal nick name to him) was the CEO of PLF. A great man. He had his own style. Very different from other Tan Sri. A unique character. He mooted the idea of PLF Digitisation Project which went very well. Who was that guy that headed Perdana Leadership Foundation 2006 Digitisation Project? That project went very well. (Haha. It was me).
Well, that’s for now. Will continue later
