Graphene has always been a topic fascinating so many people in the engineering and scientific scene. Even my university professors were all totally hyped up about Graphene over the past year even well way after my graduation from University. In my understanding from various research groups and PhD students in Cambridge, the properties of Graphene are astonishing, the applications...

Growing Shaunchng.com as a system administrator and my experiences into server management in Singapore

My fray as a system-administrator started with my curiosity to have a-go and enjoyment of running my server cluster to fulfil my computing and web-hosting needs.

It tough being a SBS transit bus driver these days

Looking into the limelight of the events happening recently with regards to SBS transit bus drivers, don't you think SBS transit is acting too harsh on bus captains now? Taking the incident this year of the Indian elderly lady who fell from a bus which simply drove off, only laughingly being treated by a driver from a competitor bus company...

Transformers, Old Cartoons that deserve Movies, exams sighted

Hadn't had time to talk about transformers the movie which I caught previously on free passes (yea) funny that the movie didn't follow the old child hood memories I had on Optimus (flat front prime mover?), Megatron (walter giant cannon?) and Bubblebee (VW bettle) or just because of their scanner's they can turn into anything they want? Or is...

Using return addresses to get your mail through free

This came to be from just a random neuron connection Ever wondered what happens when you post a letter in the mail box with your address on the front (To: address) and the address you actually want to send the letter to on the reverse (From: address) return address area? If you just want the letter to reach it intended...

My Internship, as a chapter closes

And there we have it, 9 weeks of internship gone in a flash and school's reopening next week. Time do flies and it's not exactly "tiring" or "difficult", but strangely neither as the saying goes: "Time passes when you are having fun". Lets face the facts, work is not always enjoyable, that's why people get paid to work! But...

IPPT go or no go?

Got a call from my NS bunkmate Daryl yesterday asking whether I was posted to a unit. Apparently most of us commanders even our troopers had calls on their postings over the pass weeks, except for a few including me.

Oh yea with that in hand I guess I hadn't had the opportunity to wish everybody (and on a rather late note) a very happy Merry Christmas 2006, Selamat Hari Raya Haji and a very Happy new year. Alot has happened since I came back, namely greeted by new of Singapore flooding around the Thompson...

Airport Security – Realistic?

Mmm, good thing an Air Terrorist plot had been foiled recently, but the air-travel industry did kinda shaken up over the past few days with increased security & inspections. Basic items like scissors, jackknifes all not allowed on board planes, even combustable laptop batteries are not permitted (thanks dell and sony) not sparing any macs either. At this rate even...

Yesterday London 2012, Today London Bombed

Thats the headline on BBC news today, in contrast to the celebration, announcement & stuffs yesterday at home about the Olympics, which is to be held at London on 2012. Sad. Luckily the damage is not that severe, with AL-Qaeda taking responsibility to all shit they had done. What they get to gain for doing such things? Blinded by...
