Let me just say for the record: No Cheques Cleared on Saturday, SUCKS!
Essentially, this means that if you drop your cheques off at the bank any time after Thursday 3.30pm, you will only see money in your bank account on Monday afternoon, because the banks don't do cheque clearance on Saturdays anymore.
Ah, I remember using one of these before, as a kid. The built-in light was nice but the shelf and table space was hardly enough. I doubt you would be able to fit a computer on it (in my day, computers were rare). Maybe that's why this was thrown out by someone. Still, brings back memories.
Sweet piece of kit, this. I got it all up and running in a flash. Connected the N95 to my wireless network at home and at the office (had to update my MAC tables of my router though, because I am anal about router security on my home network).
Also installed the pfingo VOIP service from Starhub (very good service, this) and also got the phone to sync with my Mac via iSync (details at wtfshow.com).
Found a bunch of drawings on an envelope by Isaac. Gosh, this makes his old man speechless.
Monsters of all shapes and sizes. All drawn by my boy, all of three years and five months old.
He was particularly proud of his rendition of monster teeth, pointing them out to me again and again. Me, I was proud of every scribble and line on that grubby piece of paper. I carefully folded the envelope and kept it in my bag.
Update: The clicking site is down, collapsing under the strain of the Estonian Persian forces, I am sure. Time for post-battle beers at everyone's favourite Spartan drinking hole, The Double Melon Garden! Last man at the Hot Gates buys!
Fellow boliao Singapore brothers of the Net, I have received an appeal from a warrior from SgForum to aid in the battle of the clicks. Singapore initially did well in an online clicking contest but we have fallen behind due to immense pressure from larger nations.
Their clicks may blot out the sun, but we Singaporeans will show them we are even more boliao! We will not back down from participating in this battle, brothers! Sisters who click well also welcome!
In the meantime, you may wish to read this eloquent appeal from SingaporeTyrannosaur of SgForum:
Hey there Mr. Brown, I'm afraid I bring bad news, but this is very important.
I am SingaporeTyrannosaur of SgForums, and we fight a battle for Singapore.
For the past three days a few valiant members of the online Singaporean community, deeming themselves SgSpartans, have been defending the hard-won top position in an international clicking contest, which can be found here:
When we first started, Singapore was all the way at the bottom of the list, while the odds seemed insurmountable, the small band of Singaporeans which started clicking soon attracted a larger number which managed to win the day for Singapore, in Sgforums, we are know as the SgSpartans, as we the few stood against the hordes of many nations. And SgForums is not alone in this battle, for many other SgSpartans have also joined from HardWareZone and other forums.
However it seems that in time the Estonians and Norwegians have caught onto the game and are attacking Singapore’s slim lead of a few thousands with new and improved methods (of which we do not know) that are surely making us lose our control of the top position. It seems that their mouse-clicks can blot out the sun.
In doing so they have also invaded our forums, spied on us, insulted us and promised us defeat and devastation. While the SgSpartans have held out so far, we cannot hope to hold this position forever without the full involvement of the Singaporean online community in this.
Given our advantage in numbers in terms of connected population, an organized online community and the like over the Estonians and Norwegians in the internet, victory can be assured if the more Singaporean net dwellers became SgSpartans.
So now I come to you, wise blogger, as a humble soldier fighting for our nation’s honour to request that you tell the tales of our battle, that if a few SgSpartans could strike such terror in the hearts of many, what more
would they feel if they faced a legion of SgSpartans?
Already the exploits of the SgSpartans have raised much talk among the Norwegians and Estonians who have never heard of the humble little tribe of Singapore, and our defiance in the face of their demands for us to submit and surrender have only angered them even more, and they intend to throw
everything they have at us.
Hence, I SingaporeTyrannosaur, a SgSpartan of the SgForum legion, is begging you Mr. Brown, O wise and kind blogger and greatly influential among the Singaporean net community, to appeal for more people to pick up the SgSpartan cause and also for those with the talents and arcane knowledge to equip us with better tools to wage this war with.
