Susahke nak silent kan hanpon??

Salam Sejahetera dan Selamat Maju Jaya

Perilaku manusia mmg pelik. Namun sikap manusia ini kadang-kala tidak mencerminkan umurnya. Susah kita nak teka bagaimana seseorang itu hanya dengan melihat perangainya. Orang-orang tua cukup percaya dengan kaedah ini. Mereka percaya seseorang itu boleh dinilai hanya dengan melihat kelakuannya. Ini sebenarnya tidaklah betol, kerana orang-orang tua bukannya betol 100%.

Tak elok anak dara nyanyi semasa masak kerana khuatir akan dapat laki tua. Celah mana? Bongok sungguh orang-orang tua zaman itu. Kenapa perlu berlapik2? Kan ke mudah dan cepat serta tepat kalau guna kata-kata yang terus. “Oi Minah! Ko jangan la nyanyi, bukan sedap pon sore ko! Hangit nasi karang!!!”. Itu adalah contoh. Ada juga yang berperangai seperti orang giler tapi tidak giler. Saya ada seorang kawan yang giler, tapi dia tidaklah giler. Bererangai seperti seorang saiko.. tapi tidaklah saiko. Muka macam samseng pemandu lori tapi hati dia kecik. Merajuk numero uno. Haha

Okeylah kita berbalik pada tajuk utama iaitu… silent mode HP.

Apekah susah nak tekan butang itu? Apekah payah nak setkan fungsi bergegar? Susah benarke nak disable kan bunyi telepon. Faham2 jelah apabila melangkah masuk kedalam Library, pengguna harus tanam didalam otak bahawa sebarang bunyi yang bisa mengganggu pengguna lain haruslah dielakkan.

Payah ke nak paham Library = Diam = Toksah ganggu orang lain – perangai bangsat + hormat pengguna lain dan dapatlah jumpah besar iaitu pengguna library yang bijak. Kalau tidak mahu hormat undeng2 library… kurang-kurang hormatlah diri sendiri!!

Ramai tidak suka kalau saya panggil mereka berperanagi seperti bangsat tapi kalau dah serupa bangsat.. nak uat macam mana? Kalau kanak2 tadika masuk library buat bising tak apa la. Kita tahu sebab dia kanak2. Bodoh lagi dan masih belum bijak untuk berfikir. Ini dah besar, badan berbulu dah boleh jadi bapa atau ibu.. tapi masih lagi dungu.

Sila-sila lah pahamkam diri anda… apabila masuk kedalam library anda haruslah perlahankan handphone anda. Tidak ada orang yang akan kagum dgn hanpon anda!!! Jadi letakkan phone anda ke silent mode.

Paham?!?!

OUM Digital Library has new look too…

Good Evening,

Another 45 minutes to go before I will start chasing all the students out from this library. /lol. Of course, will never do that. It will reflect me as a person and what not, as a Happy Librarian. This is Munawar the Happy Librarian. The one that will always try to help no matter what.

For the past few months, I have made some changes to the iPortal’s look and feel. However, it is not available to the general public. You have to log in to our system in order to view. The time has come however, to replace the old look of Public iPortal. Remove some useless codes and putting away non-public directive and add-up some CSS 2.1. The new iPortal is now available.

This server is lacking some important packages, no PHP and mySQL. Nothing much that I can do. Installing won’t help either, I will need to recompile APACHE which I dare not to do. Let it be, let it be. Do not have the guts to face the fiasco should it arise.


Sabah Ahoy!

Salam Sejahtera dan Good Morning serta Assalamualaikum.

It has been a while since my last post. Oh. Not that long, only 3 days without post. Well, what can I say, am a very busy man. Very busy with my life, my social life (do I have one? lol) and of course, the life that I enjoy the most, The World of Warcraft.

Tomorrow I will be going to Sabah to conduct ISW (Woes to you that do not understand this acronym, ISW stands for Information Skills Workshop) class for the new students. Well basically, we have to provide current awareness to these students. The art of searching information and The art of developing Keywords. Searching through google is not the way. Information from google are not valid for research paper. It may ruin your paper.

There is nothing wrong with google actually, but the information from it. The authoritativeness, accuracy, timeliness and reliability are the most common disputes for them. To Sabah I will go, to Sandakan and KK, teach them all I know. May the spirits guide me.

Ad-Hoc Reporting vs InfoStation

Good Evening and Salam Sejahtera

When ever it comes to produce monthly reports or statistical data. I always prefer to use the ad-hoc version rather than VTLS own Reporting Tool, the InfoStation. One of the reasons is speed and mobility. Speed as in time needed to generate report. Mobility deals with the ability to be export into various format, be it CSV, Excel or simple Text file. However, to use Ad-Hoc reporting tool, one must have broad understanding of Virtua VTLS Database Structure and SQL. It will be difficult to produce simple report without any of these two.

InfoStation ain’t that bad after all. However, it requires patience and good Apache configuration. Some of the reports will go into Network Time-out due to Apache’s Time-out Configuration. Since I do not have ROOT access to Virtua Server to restart HTTP service and is feeling lazy to configure Apache Configuration (odd huh? I can configure Apache, but cannot restart System Service), Ad-Hoc Reporting is my friend. With it, I can generate any reports I want. Circulation Status, Transaction Logs, Checked-Out Status and many more.

Use InfoStation if you do not want any hassles. As for me, I prefer Ad-Hoc Reporting Access. How to use Ad-Hoc Reporting? The easiest way is to call your regional VTLS support and ask for guidance. They will be happy to help yo. Am not going to explain those complicated stuff here. Maybe in the future I would.

I would be happy if VTLS Malaysia could conduct a session to use Ad-Hoc Reporting Tools. Some Administrators are not aware of such function. Or perhaps just too lazy to configure the system for it. It is a little bit complicated but once done, the magic will start pouring in.

The basic Idea is to use any Database Program (Microsoft Access or Open Office Base) and link it with Virtua Database. Use the Database Program to generate report based upon your queries. Perhaps in the future I will explain the Queries I use to generate my report.

Okay. It has been 10 hours now. I must go home and do some DPS in WoW. Or slice the demon in Devil May Cry. Just can’t wait for my Ninja Gaiden 2.
