Double reformatting

Yes, I done my homework now... I guess so... I only did the "SUBMIT" part which is to create the person... not sure if prof wants it to be "stored" in somewhere then retrieve it back. Haha if it is latter, then I am far from completing my homework, haha (coz I don't know how and need to study more to do that haha...)

Wow... I reformatted my comp on Monday to install Window XP Pro. After that, I installed those software I want. However, on Tuesday, I wanna install Ubuntu too. So I decide to give 15 GB out of my 40 GB to Ubuntu, (I only gave 5 GB previously), but I make a whole lot of mess during the installation, dun know why... not as smooth as previous situation. So I reformatted my entire laptop after an afternoon again with the kids in Pei Hwa primary school. After that... not gonna install Ubuntu, scare it mess up again and I have to reinstall XP pro haha... not gonna do tat again, so... install Cygwin and did my qooxdoo (my homework) on that platform then. Haha...

My brother and I spent two afternoon with the kids in Pei Hwa primary school. It was their Harmonica holiday activites, 2 days only... haha... ooo they are so... "energetic" and some are naughty lah of coz. Can't restrict them to be good boys and girls. Most of them are primary 2. Haha... but this time is much better than last time. These kids are enthu when we played some games. Haha... our routine was harmonica practice, then break, then games. Haha... some of the kids look v familiar, and cute too... there's one called Ray, came on the 2nd day only, look cute. Haha... at the beginning when we 2 were calling everyone to be quiet (as what we 2 most of the time did), he suddenly said that he hope this lesson ends early because he is going to malaysia tmr (that's today) and he wants to sleep earlier. Everyone was looking at him... stunned... haha... then my bro answered him that the lesson would end at 5pm and he could sleep as soon as he reach home. so don't worry about that. Haha... what a funny one...

On the 2nd day, we gave them a test, which ... everyone need to choose a piece out of 3 to play in front of my bro... while I go make sure everyone is not noisy... anywhere... 24 students... and only 1 get to play at a time... 23 students running wild... wah... no wonder my throat never recover. Haha... asking them to sit down just can't stop their ego... haha... some (3 i think) are practising at the back (ok that's good!) then some... running about... playing catch (that's bad)... some queueing... haha the prize is the world's smallest harmonica, little lady and we only giving 4 out. Haha...

Wow... what the days... haha... tired when we got back, haha... looks like NUSHO is... "reaching up for the stars" haha... so kasian the KR harmonica, wish them the best... they've been working very hard... haha... hey, Chee yong finally realise that me and my bro only do good in admin... finally he realise it, haha... we not good in music, that's of coz to say, haha... (don't think I still retain my SL status liao hehe, may the next SL do better than me, hehe!)

Yeah... hopefully I can go back to Brunei on the week of 18 June. Haha...

Operating Theatre

Been in the operating theatre and it looks a bit like the one in the movie... only that wasn't so much doctor the moment I am still awake. Haha... got a device beside me... tracking my heart beat and I am all sticked with probes. The anaestatic doctor injected a needle into my left hand... then we all set except the presence of the doctor who gonna operate on a nodule on my back, near my buttom. Haha...

On Monday 21/5, I woke up early (5am) to have my medicine and breakfast coz I can't eat or drink after 6am. So... finish my stuff at 5.30am then just play ps2 and sleep some more till... 8am i guess... then... we wait till lieng woke up. Hehe... he need to go school at 11am. So.. we all left the room at 10++ am, then while lieng went to his poly, we went down do a bit of shopping... then only took a taxi to Gleneagle hospital. My mum and aunt are with me all these time. Hehe... I registered myself at the Susan Lim clinic. Then... we were told to go to the dayward centre, so there we go... soon, my bro, ngie, arrived. Hehe... I got a room at 721. Then I need to get change into a suit that is easy for operation. Thank God that He has kept calm all these while, hehe... no fear at all... at 1.30pm, I was brought to the operating theatre.

When the doctor arrived, the anaestatic doctor injected doses via the needle at my left hand. Then, I still wondering when I will fall asleep... but... the next moment I woke up... I realise that the operation has finished and I am being pulled outside of the operating theatre. The nurses there waited for me to wake up, then brought me back to the room 721. Haha... wow... what a good sleep... didn't realise that the operation gone so quickly. Haha... and look at the time... it has already 4.30pm, wow... think from 2.30pm, the operation would only last 30min, then I slept most of the way, haha... then after much rest, till 7pm, we left the hospital and home sweet home, haha...

Next day, Tuesday 22/5, oh man... think my neck got sprained... difficult to lift my head up while I lying. Haha... then a few aches around my body too, haha... today (Wednesday, 23/5) has been much better... my mum and aunt flew back to Brunei... and I back in my own room now... aha... what an experience... haha... ouch my neck... hahaha... thank God for bringing me through all these haha... and I know He will cure my neck too, hehe...

Back to my qooxdoo... ahaha... need to familarise with it... haha...

Potter of my life

Wow... time sure flies and it seems faster if you don't take good care of it... almost 18 May, the day which I will have another round of meeting with the TiddlyCard developers at 9am, then a meeting with my component-mates and my supervisors (Dr. Henz and Dr. Anderson)... also... our homework assignment, i.e, evaluation of the exisiting GUI libraries, is to be due... and look at how little I have done... not sure about my companions...

Just create a tiddler, GUI Internal Management, on the TiddlyCard wiki and haha... manage to dig something to write there, phew... well, I put up what I have done up there... continue to working on to complete the other blanks. GUI is not something I have "done" before during my three years, not to mention that I need to do it with JavaScript. Haha... finally pick up JavaScript during last few weeks and has been testing on the GUI toolkits... I been assigned Yahoo! UI (YUI), Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and Qooxdoo. I have looked through all of them and now "still" working on YUI. GWT looks awesome as there is a compiler that can translate Java to Javascript... but there is a lot "imports" or "rules" I have to follow... and haven't look at them carefully yet. Next Qooxdoo is the worst... no idea at all, except the fact that I gather from its website that it is licensed by LGPL/EGPL. Haha... other than that... still jumbly-mumbly dun know at all...

I install Ubuntu on my computer today and it is... quite easy... as I have found a good set of instructions that teach me how... haha (it is from the Ubuntu forum) then spent the whole afternoon with my brother playing around with it... installing softwares, such as Java SDK, Emacs... and so on... wow... that's interesting... haha... but when I think through... wondering if it is the right thing or not... hmm... I don't like the "restarting the computer" if I wanna switch. Troublesome you can see. Haha... hmm... having nothing to do with it though... think I let it stay for a few weeks... till I go back home... if it doesn't serve any purpose... then think I will remove it since it eats 2 GB of my computer... haha... or replace it with Solaris OS for another few weeks? Haha... not a bad idea... now left with 7 GB for my C drive. Haha...

My parents gonna come up on 14 May, haha... so I better be hurry with my stuff... so that I can enjoy my time with them hehe... (before 18 May comes), haha... hmm oopz... forgot to prepare a box of stuff for them to bring back to Brunei. (But I doubt that they will not return during our return to Singapore from our December holiday, hahaha...)

Although my companions looks "demoralised" with the project, I still continue to depend on my God to accomplish my task. Hehe... this is a trial, a test and a lesson for me to learn to depend on God more... if this is His test for me, He will surely bring me out of it safely... as what He has been doing all along with me. May God continues to guide me and mould me into what He likes. He is the potter of my life.

Javascript component framework?

Haha... have been looking through Yahoo! UI (YUI for short) and Dojo. No idea what are those and feel these two somewhat similar or different from style of Java (the language I familiar with). JavaScript is not Java... they followed a different paradigm... but there is some guide on how to use OOP on JavaScript... (so that it looks like Java) but I am having a hard time digesting and understanding it... @_@... a bit frustracted le... gonna have a meeting with supervisor this Thursday and Saturday. Hopefully can get the objectives clear and able to work towards the goal.

Now I focusing on YUI coz I saw someone can build a tetris game with that (cool huh?) haha... you can googled by the keyword "YUI Tetris". Haha...

Not long that I gonna move room and there is so many things to move ah. Hehe... many many things... after moving, need to sort out stuff (all those I want to bring back KB de) into a box... hopefully it won't be coming back (last time I send back some... but got back MORE stuff... ||*_*||)... HYP... will ask my supervisor for a July break so that I can go back KB for 2 weeks. Haha... when does my result out... hmm oh ya... around 25 May I guess, haha...

Nothing much now till the day I go back KB? Hehe... nah... I write here again when I have anything on. Hehe...
