Stop thieves from stealing your Wi-Fi bandwidth

The writer shares his learning experience on tweaking his home's broadband Wi-Fi routers, after experiencing problems with his home webcam which he traced to a lack of bandwidth. If you do not take steps to safeguard your Wi-Fi network from thieves you will always have bandwidth problems which will affect the internet experiences of legitimate users. That is despite you paying around RM150 - 200 a month for the service!

MRT: a good start, more attention to details needed

Sungai Buloh - Kajang MRT line is not perfect but it connects people from far flung areas of the Klang Valley together. Despite the teething problems it provides a great comfortable ride. All it takes to make it more attractive to car drivers is a more comprehensive "last-mile" connections of feeder buses that cover many more areas and run on more frequent scheduled services.

RapidKL needs simple lesson in maths!

RapidKL could have avoided this botched up if those in charge have done some simple mathematics like what I had done. It does not need a Ph.D. in Operational Management for one to figure this out and plan accordingly. It is clear from my calculation that RapidKL will not be able to complete the issuance of all 68,000 new MyRapid concessionary cards before the deadline of mid July 2017. I think the sooner that RapidKL owns up to this fact and makes an contingency plan, the better it is to salvage its tarnished reputation.

RapidKL needs more feeder bus services to link up LRT & MRT

Why's RapidKL, having a great cross link feeder bus route like T807 that links up a LRT station with a closeby MRT station, has chosen to keep so quiet about it? How come RapidKL can design a great linkage route in T807 and not able to do the same for other feeder bus routes to link up more LRT stations with closeby MRT stations? Why RapidKL launched the MRT feeder bus service with a cashless system that does not accept your own Myrapid cards but “traditional” TouchnGo cards only?

We shall not be Zombies

With our multi-religious, multicultural, multilingual and diverse dietary preferences, it would not take much to start a sectarian firestorm if restrain is no longer applied. I feel that the phrase “tolerant of each other” is wrong. To survive as a nation, Malaysians collectively should be accepting each other as we are and get on with our lives.
