Journal 01

I was asked to write my journal on a blog, so here is the journal. I have been blogging since 1995 when Singtel started to launch their deep-up services. It was really slow then, something like 56kbps, if I can recall accurately, or perhaps it was 125kbps, most likely not, I think 125kbps was an upgrade with a faster dial-up modem. Now, it is a world of difference, I am using a 50Mbps fiber optic broadband modem. I could watch video and study on-line. I had been wanting to have my own server and now there is the cloud where Google and Microsoft would give a few gigabytes free for storage. Back then, a hardisk of 250MB cost me a thousand dollars to buy one. Memory is cheap now, but programs are getting heavy too, as everyone is not concern about conserving space; they prefer to be more slavish with storing more information in case they just might need it. I am one of those culprits; I must confess. I have so many hardisk and searching for information on the hardisk becomes a mammoth task. It is really a discipline to organize and trim files to their required size for safe keeping. However, I do face a lot of problems when application and hardware got phased out as time progresses. I would need time to convert and transfer this information into the new format and the storage device. The clue, I figure was to store names in the 'file name' instead of in a database program. Fortunately, many people have seen this problem and have created a 'meta-data' in the file itself. This is a great way forward.

Old Singapore – Clarke Quay and Fort Canning

It is interesting to look at the old photographs and start noticing changes being made to the landscape. It was investment well made when I got my negative scanned professionally and now I have the privilege to look at them and ponder, what are the changes in the photographs.
Join me in this fun game to explore Clarke Quay and also Fort Canning, some of the buildings that look old may be added later on, and we thought it was historical. Add your view to the Comment.

Description Drawn with Platinum Desk Pen 14K EF Nib with Atramentis Archive Ink.  Along The Buffalo Road are many shops selling vegetables and through the years the numbers have increased. Selling vegetables have perhaps been more profitable than selling spices. Daisy Green occupies two shop lots and it is one whose business is flourishing. The displays overflow to the five-foot ways and turns round the corner along the partition wall. Every space is worthy of more business opportunity. The shop intrudes into public spaces, calling out to the passerby. It becomes a certain social, s…
