Hi! that's the new class message board's web add...
not very cheem lar... but at least no need to *click click 
click* hehe trying to learn more stuff to make it better... 
check it out! :) 


re: Guard Duty Johnny 10:45 am sunday may 5, 2002 well i just finished ANOTHER round of guard duty last weeks' was for getting caught in canteen and yesterdays was a regimental brought upon by being 'attached out' for water polo. unfortunately, some idiot decided to surf porn on the guard room computer which landed him in DB. that one nemind, they banned the use of the computer by all personnel until further notice! see how easily people sucummb to porn...
re: Guard Duty Data 0:40 am sunday may 5, 2002 Well my experience of 'department duty' is a bit different: we arrive later (7.15 or so); there IS a bus; the officers are the pple who stay late; & there isn't any selling to the best of my knowledge (either we are all duty-bound pple, we've never needed to or we're just not very innovative). However, I do have an interesting personal experience to share. Some external consultants came in to have a meeting with some of our officers. They began at 5, & at 7.30 the officers left, assuring me, the hapless duty clerk, that the consultants would be done 'soon.' It took them half an hour more, & when they came out, some of them gasped "oh, there's someone waiting for us!" & then another, who looked the senior, quipped "don't worry, he's getting overtime [pay] for this." Sigh. At least such experiences are few & far between. P.S. For those who can't tell what the big fuss is, NSFs DON'T get overtime pay, so sorry, that can't be used to soothe one's conscience. & it was the end of a hectic day & I had not eaten dinner yet. & IMHO it's not very nice to use other pple's meeting rooms as your own after office hours. Thanks for putting up with my complaining ;-)
re: Guard Duty clerk 11:25 pm saturday may 4, 2002 well...from a clerk's point of view...there is only "duty clerk" to kena.....and that entails first in (0700 hrs if you are in mindef thats a bitch because there is NO bus!!) and last out...whenever the last person decides to leave (believe me there are people who have absoultely no life and stay in the office to work!! DXOs i am talking about) and we normally only "sell" the locking up the last part for about 20- 30 dollars.....its alright since its only a two hours things (avg closing time is 8pm) but well this quarter is my rotation and *Sighz* haven't been compelled to sell any yet....convenience of a car...so i just hang around and play with the internet...bleah...
re: Guard Duty whucarezz 6:47 pm wednesday may 1, 2002 its basic demand and supply, isnt it. think about the many that come from broken families who have no home to return to and nothing to look forward to when we blissfully book out everyday/week.. Pub hols - $100-200 Sat/Sun - $70-100 Weekday - $50
re: Guard Duty Johnny 4:50 pm tuesday april 30, 2002 i agree with your pts so nothing to add. but just for fun. lets compare guard duty prices amongst singapore camps shall we? hehe, in my camp we have so-called 'sign on' guard duty personnel. i.e people who simply dont give a damn to the value of civilian life and are willing to spend ALL their available book out time (when i say ALL i really mean ALL, including nights off too) to 'bao' guard duty for their fellow comrades for a nifty fee. 1.for starters, COS duty. $50 dollars to cover your ass while u go for nights off inclusive of next mornings roll call so you can come back really late and not worry about cocking up the roll call. 2.week day guard duty from 6PM to next day 8AM. price range: $70- 90 depending on how 'ah ga liao' you are with buyer. no worries on your sleeping time, total coverage of guard duty so you can 'cao keng' in bunk and not at the stinko guard room. 3.weekend (sat) 12PM - 8AM. $130-180 depending on wat period it is, if it is during 'nua' period price is of course lower. if its during preparation for ATEC and every week is 'kam puah' shaq and you really need the wkend to catch your forty winks then price is higher. 4.weekend (sun) 8AM-8AM $180-250 conditions are same as for SAT. price range dep a lot on the time period. 5.public hol 8AM-8AM $200-? the mother of all guard duties, why miss out on a chance to enjoy a breath of civilian air? especially one where the singapore govt has secifically depicted for the entire country to take a day off! for a 'small' price, your worries are gone. prices above are guard duty jobs. for COS duties, prices are generally lower for the simple reason that SAF doesnt think you need air condition while you are doing guard duty. on a diff note: personally i have once sold guard duty for $180 which was a painful experience and i vowed never to sell it ever again. i guess the 24hr missions and deprivation of sleep must have got to my head at that time. my 2 cents, so... FLAME ON! :-)
re: Guard Duty 10 11:26 pm monday april 29, 2002 i'm personally more for the first counterpoint. i guess it's just like applying for any other job, no obligations unless u choose to do it. if the poor guy really needs the money it doesn't seem to have much of a difference getting it from some legitimate company he works in or from someone rich enough to sell his duty. (and who ever said being rich ain't good?) in a way this practice is rather 'harmless', it perhaps doesn't accord with morals or something. as pointed out in your 2nd pt, i think that's a little overboard... such a problem would probably be (and ought to be) curbed before it reaches that stage i guess.
Guard Duty Data 10:49 pm monday april 29, 2002 Well I've heard of this black market of sorts in units where a person does guard duty for another for a fee, & we're not just talking about lunch money here. Just wondering how ethical this is. My considerations: Point: The richer can exploit the poorer because they can afford to 'sell' their duty whereas the latter can't. Counterpoint: It's not exploitation but a legitimate 'business' deal. Each side gets what it wants, & the poorer aren't compelled to do the duty for the richer. Point 2: The duty is supposed to be shared by everyone, which is why it's called a duty. Think if the richer could pay off the poorer to serve some of their NS for them! - a more exaggerated scenario. Counterpoint 2: The ideal duty is so, but so long as everyone's happy & the guarding gets done, what's the problem? I was wondering if anyone here has interesting points to contribute regarding this. Also: This is just an intellectual exercise; I'm not trying to criticise anyone for anything.

re: computer in guard room! Data 10:53 pm monday april 29, 2002 Eh I wonder if you guys have studied the guidelines regarding the I-Net PCs (yes, that's its name, & it's a silly one, not unlike the new names boards like A*Star are giving themselves these days) - the Internet access is MEANT to be for work-related research. But I wonder how many pple follow, or even believe, that. Oh well, happy surfing ;-)
re: computer in guard room! burpees 9:44 pm sunday april 28, 2002 oh we have one in our office.......its even wireless...infra red okay..they trying out this new system in mindef..totally amazing..windows professional...and you guessed it..not much work has been done since it arrived...its even a PIII computer..much better than the crap we use....
computer in guard room! Johnny 8:49 am sunday april 28, 2002 hello from the guard room! typing this on a sunday morning while doing guard duty, now not my shift so can relac one korner. anyway veli impressed by SAF since they installed this broadband windows 2000 desktop PC in the guard room. my hopes for SAF have risen :-)


re: The post ORD time. burpees 5:35 pm thursday april 25, 2002 becareful with the night driving...i got into my first accident...got banged sideways....heart pain siah....driving to camp is a bitch as well because they never let us get car labels and we have to "smuggle" ourselves in through varoius covet means....
re: The post ORD time. Data 11:02 pm tuesday april 23, 2002 Haha yeah kind of. There really aren't many surprises for me when I watch it (because I've watched it twice, duh), but it's a good show & I highly recommend it to everyone!
re: The post ORD time. whucarezz 7:05 pm tuesday april 23, 2002 aye data, summer snow showing on channel U leh, shiok right..
re: The post ORD time. whucarezz 7:02 pm tuesday april 23, 2002 touring is good, but cant go immediately when clearing leave cuz still gotta come back and collect IC.. m critical when it comes to NS.. m not critical when it comes to wrestling!!! steph macmahon is out of the wwf! no more boobs!!! how!!
re: The post ORD time. Johnny 3:41 pm tuesday april 23, 2002 deps wat u say is 'long term'. considering dad has given me a 1 yr probation period, tats my long term. long term to me = 1-2 yrs long term to u maybe? = the rest of ur life or something anyway most intersting thing? getting off the school bus when i was in primary 1 enroute home to buy teenage ninga tuttles steekers. lol p.s i shud state that this is ONE of my most interesting things done and whether interesting to u or not i dunno cos i notice there's someone ard here tat is especially ciritcal on wat is typed on the board, to me i tink no need to be so critical lah. just read and laugh. tats e best. :-)
re: The post ORD time. Data 9:23 pm monday april 22, 2002 (Driving at night is your LONG-term goal?! ) Eh university I guess. For now I think I'll go with the flow. This reminds me of the perennial question - what to do at the end of exams in November every school year. What's the most interesting thing anyone has done? It's about time I started a thread of my own, heh heh. ;-)
The post ORD time. Johnny 6:32 pm monday april 22, 2002 what u guys going to do when u ORD? IMMEDIATE,SHORT term and LONG term included. for me im going on a tour to US with my friends for immediate. then short term would be getting a job cos i always wanted to anyway then finally for long term im gonna work on dad letting me drive at night muhahahaha

re: question for our NS boys Data 10:46 pm thursday april 18, 2002 My 2 cents: Hah well in the office we often jokingly refer to the "Efficiency Medal" as the goal to work towards. Such a thing does exist, but I don't think NSFs are eligible. But more seriously, when you talk about mundane things like university admission, then I believe it is considered. Longer term: I'm of the view that if you're a successful citizen you can also be a successful NSman, because the qualities needed overlap e.g. the oft-cited leadership qualities. So I think the equation is reversed somewhat. A NSman displaying bravery? Maybe only in a war. On another note, my NS experience so far has certainly changed my outlook on life, more negatively than not.
re: question for our NS boys Data 10:48 pm friday april 19, 2002 For me, the rank represents how much tough training one went through, & maybe how much allowance one is getting . What one is like as a person could turn out to be quite different. & anyway if one hankers over rank so much, then one should sign on & make it one's career :-)
re: question for our NS boys whucarezz 5:54 pm friday april 19, 2002 Unless you are a SAFOS,LMS,etc, you know you just wanna SAF - Serve And F off... kit kat matters for 2.5 years, after that, who gives a hoot?? my PES E fren who ORDED called my major by his name.."AYE MONG SOON AH!" Moral of the Story Learnt from others in my unit: "Bo Geng Bo Zho Bing"! "Bo Geng Bo Zho Bing"! "Bo Geng Bo Zho Bing"!
re: question for our NS boys Johnny 2:32 pm friday april 19, 2002 nonono wat i mean is are people, (inc ur friends) going to look at u diff just bec u never had kit kats on ur shoulders or maybe 3 or more satay sticks on ur arm?
re: question for our NS boys whucarezz 8:10 pm thursday april 18, 2002 what do u tink u r getting..? the Purple Heart?!
question for our NS boys Johnny 4:18 pm thursday april 18, 2002 does your NS achievements aid u in your later working life? be it rankwise, special achievements, awards for bravery, blah blah blah

re: hihi   whucarezz   9:27 pm tuesday april 16, 2002
yea wrestlemania was downright letdown..what happened to the 
usual WWF plot twists and turns and surprises which fans are 
willing to pay hundreds to watch?!

Starting with the hard core championship we have pple chasing one 
another, we have ric flair old man chasing undertaker and we have 
the rock shaking hands with hulk hogan!! who wants to see peace 
and respect in WWF?! 

we have a downright boring undisputed champion title match..steph 
macmahon seems to got herself surgically enhanced, but her roles 
in matches seems to have mellowed, the days of triple H pulling 
her hot pants off have gone...did you catch that episode?

got carried away, nothing turns me on than a good wrestling 
discussion

re: hihi   burpees   9:41 pm sunday april 14, 2002
you got a problem with burp? what you gonna do? what you gonna do?
what you gonna do when you smell what BURP is burping? *lets out 
a roar and rips his shirt*

wrestlemania overdose...which was a letdown just for the record..

ah well...beautiful mind was a good show...at least its gives 
hope to people who don't make it to the cambridges,oxfords and 
princetons of this world...maybe we aren't mad enough to get 
there...(sour grapes) anyway..cheers to everyone having exams... 
its been a long time...cheers to everyone going to bmt.. left toe 
right toe keep up the tempo...here we go again..same old shit 
again...lalalalala.....ord loh...

64 weekends to go...muahaha..do you smell what ORD is cooking? 


re: hihi wowswoofer 6:49 pm sunday april 14, 2002 *expletive* who is burp? oh dear ... hihi how come everyone has exams at the same time regardless of international differences. Apparently april is a good time to have exams huh? And how come everyone also going for BMT recourse at about the same time ... april/may also a good time for BMT recourse hehe. go update ur details at www.rjc.edu.sg/alumni/index.html =)
<10bockquote> re: hihi Data 11:09 pm sunday april 14, 2002 Would I be abused & assaulted if I said I didn't believe in luck? Hahaha... So I'll encourage everyone to put in their best then :-) AHEM I am not delusional, thank you very much. I'm merely being transferred to a better place. At least, that's what I hope. IMHO "A Beautiful Mind" isn't that great a movie. The conclusion was all Hollywood schmaltz, the 'triumph of the human spirit' crap that they regularly hawk. I don't mean to take anything away from the real Dr. Nash's achievements, but the movie just twists his story for its own purposes. <9blockquote> re: hihi wowswoofer 6:52 pm sunday april 14, 2002 sheeesh forgot to wish everyone good luck ... and i dunno whether to even say esp. for the BMT people cos now come to think of it exams also quite shiong ... but good luck ... okay ... esp. to the BMT people ... and also to Data who *uh-ehmm* once again is in a delusion that he has offended some upper level in the defence hierarchy btw has anyone watched A Beautiful Mind ... *this has no relation to what I said about Data above whatsoever*
re: hihi whucarezz 4:40 pm sunday april 14, 2002 going for recourse soon too........
<7blockquote>re: hihi burp 2:46 pm sunday april 14, 2002 is it that bad? oh wellz...sitting tight..waiting for bmt recourse..which hopefully never comes..now i need some clerk in CPC to massively screw up...yay...looking forward to understudy jan 03....its down to the last 64 weekends...*burp* <6blockquote>re: hihi Data 10:10 pm friday april 12, 2002 Aiyah I screwed up too much & probably didn't fit into the shoes of my "upperstudy." & my boss is quite difficult to work for. Oh well. <5blockquote> re: hihi whucarezz 7:31 pm friday april 12, 2002 how come post out?
re: hihi Data 10:04 pm tuesday april 9, 2002 Actually I only suggested that there may be nothing to say; NOT "oh well since I obnoxiously think there's nothing to say then everyone should shut up." If anyone misunderstood, sorry. Rahul & NUS & NTU & SMU(?) folks: Good luck for your exams! My world: Sometime soon I'll be posted out - I really hope to some other unit in Mindef :-) - so I'll keep the NSFs who read this in the loop. ORD loh! Data.
re: hihi Rahul 5:22 pm tuesday april 9, 2002 my side of the world is nothing different. studying for my math, economics and computer science midterms (partied for three straight nights last weekend, so struggling now !!) :( how is everyone doing ? cheers - R.
re: hihi Johnny 8:27 am tuesday april 9, 2002 ok since 10 say got exams and zy say nuttin to tok about then let me congratulate all who made it so far to taste exams without dropping out and wish u best of luck hopefully topping the class
re: hihi Data 1:04 am tuesday april 9, 2002 I don't really want to say this but could it be that we've kind of lost touch with one another? It just seems that there's nothing very interesting to share about our lives these days (halfway mark of NSF life notwithstanding) Well does anyone have anything to talk about to refute that? Gee this is like me challenging you all, haha...

re: Lord of the RIngs   mindef   9:32 pm friday december 28, 2001
they took so long to build up the story and background for this 
one...to make the next part comprehensible they are going to have 
to spend a significant amount of time in explaining stuff again 
to a certain extent..its going to get cliche after a while..but 
the graphics were really WOW!!!...love the movie...haven't seen 
any collectibles around..know where i can get an LOTR mouse pad? 

re: Lord of the RIngs   Data   1:08 pm friday december 28, 2001
Mr. Oxford?? Anyway I think it can - some movies have endings 
even more inconclusive than LOTR: TFOTR. It's about how the 
Fellowship came together & braved numerous dangers - only to 
split up for the moment! Hahaha.

Of course not, or consumers like us won't have the time to 
collect the books, deluxe sets, action figures, BK meals, maps of 
Middle Earth etc. etc. :-) 

re: Lord of the RIngs   back for LOTR   10:23 pm thursday december 27, 2001
Yeah but the ending means that the movie cannot exist on it's 
own ... itz alwaez condemned to be part of the trilogy ... SIGH 
so inconclusive... ARGHZZZZZ CAN THEY RELEAST TTT EARLIER??!! 

re: Lord of the RIngs   Data   1:16 pm wednesday december 26, 2001
You must not be disappointed at the ending! It is only the sign 
of better things to come (I hope). This movie is only the first 
of the trilogy, so for the continuation of the story we'll have 
to wait till Christmas 2002.

& yes it was a good show. Got a sense of why the Tolkien craze is 
so widespread. 

Lord of the RIngs   mindef   11:11 pm saturday december 22, 2001

oopps...hehz..i watch it already...caught a sneak on wednesday 
night..its 180 minutes of good stuff..althought you will get 
disappointed at the end nonetheless..okay thats as much as i am 
going to give away without having to land up in a heap on the 
floor like a beaten dog. Do go watch it...especially fantasy 
starved people..its way better than Dungeons and Dragons...so 
yay....

re: another *bish*bash* coming up!   Rahul   10:28 am thursday november 1, 2001
hey ding, california is pretty impressive. this place is full of 
immigrants, so it isnt like some of the white dominant states. 
(not that i am complaining about them)
anyway, halloween seems to be pretty big here.. our dorms are 
completely decorated and ppl on the streets are moving around in 
all their "scary" costumes. today this guy came into our 
computing leture in a "neanderthal mans" costume. was pretty 
funny.
btw, whats this meteor garden all about.. ?!? 

re: another *bish*bash* coming up!   ding   0:07 am wednesday october 31, 2001
yo rahul, nice to hear from you, how's California? do they really 
celebrate Halloween over there? 
and anyway, i'm pleased to announce that my exams are over!!! 
which means i dun have to do battle with books for the next two 
months... and i can enjoy my meteor garden! yay...

another *bish*bash* coming up!   zzzzhenyi   11:45 am tuesday october 30, 2001
hihiiii

for all the cheongsters out there:

my hall, which is not just any hall, but KENT RIDGE HALL (they 
drill tt into us a gadzillion times during orientation) is 
having something on at CHINA BLACK 19 DEC WED NITE $14 for 2 
drinks. i don't know much about the event except it'll be 
happening. harrrharr..kayz i dunno abt tt but i always believe 
that the place doesn't matter it's the people whom you go with. 
so you guys can always make it happening yes yes?

yupz so if you guys are remotely interested, can email/sms/icq 
me k? thanx for ur attention... 

re: (no subject)   yix   7:38 pm saturday october 27, 2001
i think i can go to mindef to twang for orientation if you 2 want 
to meet me lor...awaiting replies 

re: (no subject)   Johnny   1:03 pm saturday october 27, 2001
My bad.

The common mistake is to think that the entire hill is the MINDEF 
camp, apparently it consists of various camps including the 5 SIR 
one. Btw, the arcade machines there are seriously out of date. LOL 

re: (no subject)   mindef clerk   11:52 am saturday october 27, 2001
there is no pool in mindef
the nearest pool is in 5 SIR
and its not very accessible nowadays to us
now that they have closed various entrances to cut the inflow of 
people
sianz.........

but the balachan fried rice at the gombak mess next to the 
swimming pool is really good...do try it...;) 

re: (no subject)   Johnny   6:46 pm friday october 26, 2001
ziyuan and david.. i'll be visiting mindef for the entire month 
of nov. swimming pool for the inter formation water polo matches. 
somemore right smack next to the canteen. 


LOL 

(no subject)   whu   7:52 pm thursday october 25, 2001
ziyuan and david..i'll be visting mindef on 1st nov..room 2 
something for the NQCC coaching lessons by Mr John Man. somemore

Well that's a good idea, since it's been, what, 2 months since we 
had a class outing? But I suggest we keep it simple, go for 
dinner or even a karaoke session, as Mr. Mindef suggests. 

re: (no subject)   me,myself and i   12:52 pm wednesday october 17, 2001
finally......hearing some real human response to 
activities.....anyone up for a karaoke session or 
something......i guess our manning now is quite low what with all 
those who have left us...(sounds so morbid) anyway....lets get 
something exciting up.....oh look.....there goes another chopper 
over my house....i feel really safe now.......protecting your 
skies......Republic of Singapore Air Force......only the 
best......bleah.....*ditter* been on one week mc.....bored!!!!

yoz everyone, wassup. i hear the NTU pple r having their exams 
like now, GOOD LUCK TO ALL! mine starts mid november..but i'm 
super duper busy with projects (got 3 due in the next one wk and 
i barely started..), hall sh*t and my work which has accumulated 
in the last few weeks...

anyway guess we should have an outing real soon, how about last 
week of nov when all exams have ended. it's really bad for me 
cos now my life has been reduced to home, hall, hall, hall, 
home, hall. even the people around me are all my hall mates. i'm 
not complaining but it does mean i've been sidelining too many 
pple..

okiez..everytime i post a msg it ends up as lines and lines of 
crap. sorry guys. yeah so someone org something. thanks. =)
have fun, take care...

re: Very late congratulations..:)   Spinnaker   11:36 pm saturday september 29, 2001
Hello treasurer...

wow, it's quite exciting to be in US now rite... i'm sure all the 
emotions running wild must be very very strong yah. 

Oh, dun need to run around and tell everyone u noe me lah.. juz 
tell the pretty girls can oredi. and give them my number k! 
hahaha... 

okok, gotta go now.
Good luck for ur studies and take care.



Peiming 

Very late congratulations..:)   Yan   2:08 pm thursday september 27, 2001
Hiyo everyone! :)
Heh..haven't come here for a long time liaoz.
First and foremost, congrats, Peiming!! Very belated, i'm sorry 
to say, but only just found out.., and oh yah, happy belated 
birthday too..:)
Really proud of you! :) Heh....ran around telling pple that my 
classmate actually is a SEA gold medallist...wah!! :)
Anyway, here in US, it seems to be more hectic over there in 
Singapore, than here, in my little area at Urbana-Champaign..the 
noise has pretty much died down over here..though when the 
incident happened, it was so distressful seeing all the channels 
showing the same thing that happened to WTC..but it was very 
touching, how the Americans are trying all ways to help the 
victims..reading their news almost brought tears to my eyes, 
even though i was not an american..
one interesting news we got however was that we have major 
supercomputers here at our campus, which control the internet, 
and it is hidden in the basement of one of our research 
building..that building is the sixth on a list of most likely to 
be bombed by terrorists places in US..:P..
got some Americans here pretty scared that the terrorists would 
turn to us when that news got out...:P..

re: SEA games/war games   mad-about-CNN   10:47 pm tuesday september 18, 2001
mad-about-CNN hazznt been online for the past week following 
stupid "metal birds" crashing into "metal trees" and infruriating 
bushes a few miles away ...

MOST IMPORTANTLY ... okay US is impt, BUT GOLDEN BOY is somehow 
closer to home and the heart. congrats PM ... hehe so which 
restaurant are we gonna hear you "talk to (us) about"?

anywaez ... woah yix makes the commando and plb thing sound 
realli exciting ... for the pple in hougang itz a somewhat more 
deafening experience. 

itz so satisfying to see sunday times obliterate 
the "nostradamus" fiasco ... but itz noteworthy that NY is the 
target of not just terrorist attacks from big bad osama, but 
terrifying predictions from good old nostra. go read ... haha itz 
quite farni (and A.I. actually got some idea from one of the 
predictions ... gosh itz quite uncomfortably funny to hear pple 
exclaim in unison when the Twin Towers appear in A.I. screen)

i felt very terrified ... struck dumb when i saw those two things 
that i remember staring into the sky at and losing eugene lai at 
some subway station under COLLAPSING ... the plane crashing was 
surreal ... the darned thing falling down was too much for me ... 
i feel quite sad ... as though im american. BUT having sed 
that ... they deserve some smacking ... things dont happen in 
your backyard you dunno watz been happening ard the world (altho 
admittedly you got the worst of terrorism) sadly i hafta say the 
terror consummates with the erstwhile-arrogance of the victim. 
civilians are innocent, but the govt cannot shirk indirect blame. 
SO HOW? distract the world by BEING MORE ARROGANT and ONCE AGAIN 
threatening to bomb the stone and ice ages out of afghanistan ... 
and so wat do afghanis have to do wif the terrorists? just as new 
yorkers had nothing to do wif wat the terrorists wanted to 
achieve? in the end the most innocent pple are the new yorkers 
and the soon-to-be-suffering afghanis ... 

re: SEA games/war games   Data   11:37 pm monday september 17, 2001
So I demonstrate some concern for the pple who died or were 
injured or affected, & whether our normally peaceful Singapore 
will be affected, & I get dissed. Sigh.

Our govt's main concern seems to be that pple don't think that 
Muslims in general are at fault - it's the work of madmen. OK, 
tick, I get that. & the PSC scholars are OK. Yup, tick.

;-) (apologies, couldn't resist)

So security seems to be beefed up, just not that obviously at 
Mindef. That's good, really - I was beginning to have doubts.

Btw the Nostradamus thing IS a hoax. After this event everybody 
is proclaiming WWIII, Apocalypse etc. Seeing that the Chinese 
media especially seem to value their opinions, I call on 
Nostradamus scholars & astrologers & other soothsayers to form 
some institution that specialises in predicting such disasters, 
natural or otherwise. Then maybe they can do sth MUCH greater 
than cheating pple of their money & time. 

re: SEA games/war games   zhenyi   2:37 pm monday september 17, 2001
the best way to feel like nothing significant is happening is to 
stay in a hall in NUS. i'm happily cocooned in NUS and really, 
there isn't any talk anymore abt wat's going on in US, so much so 
the truth only really sinks in when i go home and watch the news 
on TV, read the newspapers etc. OR i meet ziyuan on icq and he 
philosophises abt the event, reality bites.


anyway, congrats to mr.chung for his gold medal,"one of the 
happiest faces in the crowd".harrhaarr..so when's the treat?  

re: SEA games   Johnny   8:50 am monday september 17, 2001

re: SEA games   Yix   7:52 am monday september 17, 2001
My friend's dad is a commando training officer and i heard from 
him that commandos (proper ones not those who OOC cuz of a pimple 
*grinz*) got recalled and are on standby now...also fighter jets 
in paya lebar air base are taking off and landing every few 
minutes...radar sweep done there every 15 min (my friend's hp 
reception gets cut off for 10 seconds every 15 min when the radar 
is on)...at STTS there was a recall siren on saturday during my 
training i think they were putting the vehicles there on 
standby...i heard sembawang air base is on standby too since 
s'pore's only has 4 VTOL aircraft and all 4 are there.  yeps, i 
believe that it's much more than just a few more MPs at the gates.
this is like serious lor everyone get ready to evacuate.

on a side note, got this email from a friend, wilson shold have 
gotten it too...it's prolly just a hoax, but pretty scary to read 
as well that someone predicted this incident (this is just a 
reading tidbit so ziyuan please don't start contradicting or 
flaming this with your extended knowledge of philosophy *grinz*) 
All seperate quotes, but put together it kinda refers obviously to 
the recent happenings in the US, no? Especially the one with the 
date on it.

This is what is written in Nostradamus 1654:

"In the City of God there will be a great thunder, two brothers 
torn apart by chaos, while the fortress endures, the great leader 
will succumb."

"The third big war will begin when the big city is burning." 

"on the 11th day of the 9 month that...two metal birds would crash
into two tall statues...in the new city... and the world will end 
soon after"
         - Nostradamus 1654
(I believe this quote also features in the 80's movie "The Man who 
saw tommorow", reg the predictions of Nostradamous)..

There def. is more security around camp thesedays what with the

and navy dont have to run. heh 

re: SEA games   Data   1:50 am sunday september 16, 2001
PM's victory is great news - way to go man!

Heightened security - I'm not really sure about that. I mean, I 
work in our equivalent of the Pentagon, & the heightened security 
seems to translate to just a few more MPs at the gates. But I 
grant that they could have tweaked other things behind the 
scenes. Comments from other NSFs? 

re: SEA games   pte ryan   9:56 pm saturday september 15, 2001
i finally know a sea games champion personally..woohoo!!
can i have your autograph?

Its tough isn't it the American incident. But i suppose it would 
have been kinda good if we were having our As. there might be a 
postphonement. Okay that was on the lighter side of things. 
Imagine all the political impacts that would affect our history 
papers and perspectives. *gasp*. oh well rattling again. Even 
singapore is highly affected by it. All army units have increased 
security greatly and many people are on standby. Looks like we 
are in for a long ride. 

Condolences to the people who perish.

I removed a message yesterday that I thought offensive & 
inappropriate in the light of recent events. Don't know what to 
say, really - perhaps that we being so far away, some of us 
think we can be 'bochap' about it & just leave it to the govt to 
issue condolences. Let's think of those who perished & their 
loved ones & refrain from such puerile stunts. Thanks.

Well, if we really want to go into whether the class guys accurately reflect 
the makeup of the SAF... never mind, sounds too much like work for me. OCS & 
Commandos are elite units, so it's not that surprising. Plus one disruptee, 
one might add. In the SAF Day commemoration on Monday my big big boss talked 
about having ze '3 Ps' - passion, pride & professionalism. Every NSF in the 
room practically scoffed at that: that's how it is when you don't aspire to 
have a career in the SAF. But one gets used to it.

Directions   mindef clerk   8:27 pm tuesday may 15, 2001
Just to make sure you know how to get here.

Take a mrt to Paya Lebar Station

Cross the overhead bridge and take the following bus numbers :-
24,70,76

Take it all the way until you see Tai Seng Turtle Soup. Its next 
to a shop selling fish called Cichlids and is in bright neon 
colours. Can't miss it.

Get off at the bus stop AFTER that.

Cross the road again. The street my house is on is the one next 
to the Church undergoing renovations. So thats pretty obvious as 
well. The bus stop you stop at should be one with the following 
shops :- Maxim coffee shop. US Pizza. Xian Seh Shop (those 
chinese doctors thingeys)

My address is 38 Paya Lebar Walk S 535956

If you do eventually get lost which i pray no one does.
Call me at 98221076. Don't go splashing it on the back of 
buses.Okay hope that helps.

who's going? 

re: C compiler   Data   1:33 am monday may 7, 2001
Well I don't know where to buy pirated software but I have a few other options to offer: 

1. I have Microsoft Visual C++ 6 on CD, this big (100+ MB?) & complex  
development tool for Windows programs. It ~can~ compile C/C++; just 
that it'll be like using an axe to break an egg. I suspect that this 
is what you'll find if you hunt around for software. 

2. A command-line bare-bones compiler, e.g. MinGW or Borland, with 
some configuration (I've done this so this'll be painless). 

3. (2) & a front-end IDE e.g. Quincy. Using an IDE doesn't just mean 
a nice friendly Windows interface; it speeds up executing (just press F9), 
has an easy-to-use debugger & has extra things like colour-coding. For 
now, I've managed to make Quincy-MinGW work, so that's one solution. 

All this may just be to save some hundreds of MBs installing things you'll 
never need, yes. But once it works, it works beautifully. What's more, 
(2) or (3) won't cost you anything. How's that for cheap? 

So email me if you need the files. Btw why do you want to learn C anyway? 

re: none   whu   7:40 pm friday may 4, 2001

NOT having fun? isn't it crazy how i seem to crave to go to

from the other perspective, I MISS SCHOOL! BIG TIME!! 
haha...stupid right. and people like rahul gotta fret over which 
uni is more happening, i'm worrying my cells dead over whether 
i'll be going into nus. hmm. being a relief teacher in RGS, i 
repeat RGS, is a major draining experience. why do u think i miss 
sch? ps/i quit the kimono job. too tired. tsu kare masu?

ANYWAYS, 19th May happens to be my dear brother's birthday so i 
doubt i can go...i'll get accused of getting my alphabet wrong

re: need help.....!!! Rahul 8:57 pm sunday april 29, 2001 hi all, i'm just back from my aussie trip.. nice to see some words from a couple of you.. thanks a lot for the advice ! To Ziyuan : i couldn't have agreed less on most of what you've said.. i am inclined towards the states, and am looking for a more flexible timetable in uni, unlike school. However, i still dont understand why you wont be getting the chance to study overseas.. MIT isn't the only big institution in the states.. there is always a Stanford, Caltech, Harvard, Yale (and many more) for you !! :) all in S05A have a bright future ahead of them. cheers, Rahul.
re: need help.....!!! Data 11:45 pm tuesday april 17, 2001 To Rahul: Now being in the position of someone who probably won't have the chance to study overseas unless I become a MIT janitor or sth, IMHO: 1. I'm biased towards the States because it seems more 'happening,' & knowing you Rahul, that will be what you're looking for too, right? 2. & it seems that you've already slanted towards the US. 3. & cheers for double degrees! (but are you sure the UK Us don't allow it?) 4. Of course you should also consider what career you're planning to take up, & where. The reputation of Oxford may not be so important these days as more Indians, I hear, are emigrating to Silicon Valley or otherwise setting up startups in Bangalore or elsewhere. The sun has set on the British empire... OK I'm getting too dramatic here. But here's the cliché & the truth: you'll probably do well whichever university you go to. You have a bright future ahead of you! :-) Data
re: need help.....!!! recruit 10:28 pm sunday april 15, 2001 isn't it just so stressful when you have to make choices like that? *sarcastic tone* *grinz*...doh...toss a damn coin or something......oxford boring? but its going to make you for life/ berkeley ? fun.....sure get onto drugs and alcohol and see where that lands you.....okay enough said......i say oxford first degree Us for postgraduate..... Drunk
re: need help.....!!! ding 0:29 am sunday april 15, 2001 I heard Oxford is really a boring place...
re: need help.....!!! whu 8:23 pm tuesday april 10, 2001 Berkeley. Period.
need help.....!!! Rahul 4:38 pm tuesday april 10, 2001 sorry mates if this sounds stupid, but i am really confused over which university i should choose for my undergrad. NOTE : i got turned down by harvard and princeton ------------------------------------------------------------ the choices are Oxford, Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, LSE, and Imperial (i guess the first three are playing in my mind) now the considerations : 1. i'm doing computer science for which US is far more practical. 2. US will allow me a double degree.. that allows me a chance at a double majors at economics too.. 3. the LIFE (party scene).. dont want it to be dull !! (my brother whose been to Upenn (a stones throw away from CMU) thinks that life at CMU is dull, especially if its gonna be 4 years :(.. california (berkeley) should be amazing !! 4. the time period.. oxford is 3 years, US ones are 4 years 5. the name of oxford is too good too miss out on, especially in india... HALPPPPPPP me... i'm confused.. sorry for the trouble. cheers folks, R. P.S> i'm not trying to sound freakish.. i am confused !! :)

BBQ   Data   10:17 pm saturday march 31, 2001
I think it'll be better to have it on a Saturday since some of 
our friends may not be able to make it, & everyone will be 
exhausted after work. & these days my ma'am's dishing out OT 
after OT, so that'll be too true for me.

P.S. There's no OT pay - you just have to do it. :-( 

(no subject)   Johnny   7:03 pm saturday march 31, 2001
yo,

is the bbq like confirmed? i wont be able to make it since my 
bct starts on Sunday after POP. no broad leave for me.

puts it: "a swiggin good time"  

re: what bbq? David 11:27 am saturday march 31, 2001 yix is having a bbq during his block leave on wednesday at his house........all come and have a bitch of a time....*Grinz* David

re:Rejected david 9:35 pm friday march 30, 2001 *sighz*...u leave the rest of us little hope data.....*grinz* if you hang around at the kent ridge vincinity...well that leaves us very little manouveuring space....so wellz all of you better turn up for yix's wednesday bbq so we can all get together again and have a jolly good swig....see you there God BLess. Take Care. David

Rejected   Data   9:24 pm friday march 30, 2001
Today I got THE letter:

"The Admissions Committee has completed its review of our 
applications, and I am sorry to tell you that we are unable to 
offer you admission to MIT." 

Then it goes on to give reasons, or excuses, depending on how 
you look at it.

"...This year we had over 10,000 candidates for just 1,600 
offers of admission from which will come our 1,000 freshmen...

...I am very sorry to bring you such disappointing news when you 
have worked so hard. You are a terrific student, and I do wish 
you the very best as you continue your education."

Although I didn't have any expectations of getting in, having 
the rejection in black & white still stings. Sigh, it looks more 
& more likely that I'll be in the Kent Ridge crowd come 2003 :-(. 

re: it's me again! David 11:09 pm thursday march 29, 2001 what is your ring tone? anyway flintstones all the way

Sian dont have broad week leave.   Johnny   3:55 pm saturday march 24, 2001
Sian man while other pple look forward to POP. Im not so eager 
to go for it. 31st March POP I kena the POP function comittee 
have to take care of logistics. Then later book out for 1 night 
then book in again for Basic Commando Training (BCT) the next 
day for 8 weeks while you all go to OCS. 
Wah shiok man, I really enjoying myself down here. Btw how are 
you guys SOC and IPPT timings? I barely passed my SOC: 9:43 
*sigh* not fit for commando...

anyway good luck in OCS or SISPEC whichever you guys go too. 
aiyah sure all go to OCS one lah while i slog like pig here in 
changi point... 

POPping over   Data   10:29 pm thursday march 22, 2001
Maybe it'll be like the time of enlistment when they allowed 5 
family members to come along for a tour. But personally I don't 
relish seeing Tekong again, even if I didn't go through hell & 
high water there. 

re: (no subject) 10 10:00 pm thursday march 22, 2001 u mean it's open to public?
(no subject) david 2:24 pm thursday march 22, 2001 anyone going to support the brave souls at their bmtc pop parade?

(no subject)   eug   3:20 am tuesday march 20, 2001
Hello people. 
I'm going in soon. It's my turn now finally. For those coming 
out, congrats. Must have been a long time for you all. For me, 
the break isn't long enough. But what to do. boh bian. =P well 
take care you guys.  

hiyas   david   8:03 pm monday march 19, 2001
Hiyas,

i just paid a visit to Tekong that day. Went to pick up a guy 
who was OOC and got downgraded for severe asthma. Such fun. 
*Grinz*. Although still being a recruit those sergeants couldn't 
do shit to me...*grinz* why? coz i was in air force No.3 
haha...they also LL....well didn't get to see any of you 
guys..didn't hang around long enough because i was afraid to 
miss the damn fast craft..any minute longer on that island is a 
minute too long......so anyway..11 days to go to POP hang in 
there peeps.....Anyone wanna go for 31 March POP parade?

Mindef Clerk

P.S. OOC = Out Of Course

    LL = Lan Lan

    POP = Passing Out Parade 

i never knew the floor was so hard....   Johnny   11:11 pm sunday march 18, 2001
hello all

im back from a super 2 weekend confinement period from tekong 
old bmtc school where the beds provided for have superb support 
for the back in terms of granite flooring and you are constantly 
beind visited by your friendly neighbours the mosquitoes who 
most of the time leave you presents in the form of red spots in 
the most impossible places.

having BIC (battle inonculation course) and rifle shooting 
together in a period of 2 weeks is just about the worse 
combination anyone can get. 

For the confused: 
BIC = lots of blood and pus on your elbows.
rifle shooting = balancing yourself and receiving the impact of 
the recoil of an M16 on your elbows.

WOW! aint that a great combination? now im happy i can brush my 
teeth myself.

i emphasise once again DO NOT JOIN COMMANDOS FOR FUN! unless you 
think doing BIC 3 times then running back to old bmtc school and 
doing 3 rounds of SOC is no kick at all.

anyway its late now and after having only 3 hrs of sleep 
everyday for the past 11 days... i think i should stop crapping 
now.

and btw how i wish i was in BMTC. *&#^$)*&^!@ 

hi, just expressing support for the msg   eric   6:08 pm saturday march 17, 2001
2 more weeks to POP, then see where i go.....
hopefully my broad leave is intact. 

5 days att C...woohoooo =)   Yix   6:05 pm thursday march 15, 2001
i got 5 days att c today...nice OCT MO in room 3, so i won't 
have to go back to tekong till next monday and i get to skip GST 
=)  after 3 days of SIT test this week, i don't think i can take 
another field camp just 7 days later so i'm like really happy 
*grinz* anyhow...2 more weeks to POP...see you guys at the POP 
parade =) and for eugene, hanboon, weiping and anyone else in 
the april batch, just hang in there...BMT passes real quick and 
once it's over, you'll wish you could do it over again (esp if 
you get sent to Sispec or a combat unit).
enough blabbering for now...ta!

Yix 

i'm just as lost! zhenyi 9:20 am thursday march 15, 2001 hellooooos everybody, i still like the old msgboard better but this will do just as well in the meantime. i'm at rgs now, using the laptop and trying not to curse because being not used to it, i can't type very effciently. like now and then i gotta backspace because letters are issing (eg.Missing). yeah, hope you pple are getting on A-ok, i'm kinda surviving. take care!
Subject Length Limits Data 7:40 pm tuesday march 13, 2001 I tried to type the whole message into the subject field too! & there's no way to change it, unfortunately. This is not good at all - clicking & clicking. Anyone have any ideas?

Greetings! ... Data 7:51 pm monday march 12, 2001
Welcome to our new message board! It's too bad that we couldn't get a site or a script that could show all the messages on one page, instead of this click-on-each- message model, but I guess that for the time being we can put up with this, right? (We might even get used to it.) Anyway, I hope that this board can remain active, even if it doesn't reach the heights of the old one - understandably, since not many pple can hang around here to talk & exchange crap here every other day. OK, start typing! =)
