Wikipedia

Wikipedia is the most famous online and free to edit encyclopedia in the net. I don't know how much but i would totally sure that 99% if not 100% of internet user would browse and read something they want in Wikipedia.

There is a lot of negative critics to Wikipedia because of their open policy where everyone can review and edit the content of information store in it. I also will not use Wikipedia as a main references for my report or anything not because i fear the information is wrong but fear that my worked will not be credited because of it.

The funny thing is, Wikipedia did help me much. I love surfing inside it and read whatever words that i can search in it. And sometimes, i did use wikipedia for my medical assigment as a key, as you know there is a lot of references inside an article in wikipedia so just follow that link and you will somehow found what you want.

Another great thing about Wikipedia is, it is simple and easy to understand and straight to the point. For example, i want to search for NSAID, and there it is, a long article about NSAIDs. Try search it in other source other than Wikipedia, and you will found some result like " NSAIDs and its relation to cardiovascular disease". or " NSAIDs a comprehensive study trial on people living in bla bla".... information that can't give me pure understanding on what it is actually.

Another thing is, if somehow we want to become advance and increase more on our knowledge, we would click the link " NSAIDs and its relation to cardiovascular disease"... and wolla! What you will see is : "SUBSCRIBE TO THIS ARTICLE FOR $14.99 - LIMITED OFFER ONLY".

Astro Remote volume not responding

I have been looking around for solution when my Astro beyond remote start having problem where it does not want to control the volume of my astro anymore.

The strange thing is, the remote seem fine and only the mute and volume won't respond.

After realizing that the remote cost around rm250 to be replaced, I start thinking that this is not an ordinary remote control.

After a few minutes of research (only) I found out that this remote can be programmed to be synchronize with our television.

Hmmm. So the remote problem must be cause by it some programming error.

Haha.

Turn out of you have similar problem like this, all you had to do is to press OK button with volume down until it bleep 4 times then it will be ok. This method canceled the volume control for the television ( meaning that you can only control the tv volume not the decoder).

Later I found out that if you want, you can use your tv only volume to control the astro thus no hassle to have 2 remote at the same time.

Becoming a medical officer in Malaysia: Are you still a real doctor?

To recap from my previous post, a person must completed 5-6 years study in medical school, pass their professional exam, enter 2 years house officer training program, pass their exam and completed their logbooks, then a person can now be called a fully registered Medical Officer / Medical Doctor.

A Journey of a Junior Medical Officer

After 7 or 8 years experience, a house officer will be given a full registration under Malaysian Medical Council. This registration process is a lengthy process which takes up months before it will be completed. Most doctors will apply for full registration 4 months before they finish their house officer training program. The registration will be processed only if all the criteria has been fulfilled by the house officer which includes log book, review by a board of specialist, no disciplinary action recorded, and other paper work stuff that need to be settled. A full registration means that the doctor now can practice as a doctor independently. They can wo…
