Today with Microsoft having captured the computer industry 'dBase','Lotus 123' and 'Wordstar' are gone. They are replaced by Microsoft's 'Access', 'Excell' and 'Word' respectively. To explain each programme here is a stupid thing to do because anybody who can read this blog knows about the programmes.
All of us agree that one of the most useful products of the computer is the internet. Without the internet there would be no emails, forums and of course blogs. I remember when I was in Fukuoka, Japan there was a place called the Rainbow Club. It was strategically situated next the Fukuoka City Hall building where I received my lectures. Membership to this Club is only open to foreigners and it is free. It is primarily a library where most of the books are in English. I saw some Korean and Chinese books as well. Newspapers of neigbouring countries are provided for free reading. For Malaysia the newspaper is the Utusan Malaysia although it comes two days late. The Club also shows CNN on TV. It was at this club that I learned Marlon Brando had died.
I went to this club everyday to read Utusan Malaysia and surf the internet. Unfortunately every member is only given a total of one hour free surfing for each day. This means if you had surfed for forty minutes in the morning you can only surf another twenty minutes later in the day. For me this one hour was very precious. I read and composed my emails there. I read what was happening around the world there too. I read about one of my Councillors Mah An An being killed before my friends in Seremban knew about it.
So I won't be blogging now if not for my friend Muhammad who invited me for the data base course years ago. Terima kasih Mad.
