Ubuntu Makes everything look great

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 5:54 AM | 0 comments »




Hei its been sometime since Ive been using Ubuntu linux and i have to say it really does make images, fonts web pages and other stuff look good. You dont really need to check for any template or windows kit to make it look good. It looks great by it self.I have never seen my blog look this good. And besides its quite refreshing sometimes to look at another desktop rather than windows.

Its been too long

Hi , Its me , yes the guy who havent done any post since a month ago. But I really have a good reason for this, believe it or not im employed , finally, after all of my rantings, previous interviews, i finally did it i finally got a job. The company is a local company whose core business is the esm machines, you know the machines in the banks, tm ,maxis that takes in money to pay for your deposits, bill and stuff, yup thats the one. The job is mostly programming.Yup its a start of a new beginning.:)

My Damn Modem

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 6:48 AM | 0 comments »


Whoever who are reading this post, i advise you for all that is good and mighty please ohhh please do not i repeat do not use a usb modem in any time trust me its not worth it. Its been long since ive made a new post all because of my own usb modem.The damn modem keeps leading and downloading all virus and worms and any almost anything that makes computer crackers(very bad people-opposite of hackers) sleep well at night.All my files , final year project, personal stuff images , photos all gone.Each time i connect it downloads all the worms and other stuf that molest and rape my pcs registry and files.The driver is a nightmare, in fact when i scan the driver for the virus , the avg scanners instantly recognises it as a major virus nothing else.And bestpart i did some research and the only reason usb modems a cheap is because instead of using better quality hardwares, they replace with cheap softwares or driver s that make the cost cheaper. So they kill 2 birds with one stone and kill you slowly. So please do not use any usb modem or you will open the gates of hell to your pc.Take care,oh yeah another thing bitmap are such a pain in the ass, its taken me almost 5 minutes to load the abobe image.Must get my gimp back

New Audi TT

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 7:41 PM | 0 comments »




I never really liked the older TT, i mean the shape of the machine was something i keep associating to an egg placed side ways, sure the egg is much aerodynamic but its still an egg.Performance wise, it wasnt the best roadsterwhen it was launch and somehow to me felt like audi sold a large rock at an expensive price.But now ive seen the newer TT and it looks really good. The shape still has the eggness to it but its more a refine egg ,it looks so sporty i dare say it should make even the new LAMBO LP640 abit dated.It even has a spoiler that lifts up at a certain speed or can be manually controlled.The best Bit is this car is fast and the interior is something you would never find in any of todays roadster,comfort + sophistication.If i had the money, that car would be mine. Just mine

You know when you've tried everything you can but nothing works to avail,Thats what i feel now. I mean I haven't got any email or calls to attend an interview , ive got no job yet. But thats when adsense happens, I mean youve seen it everywhere on the internet on every page sometimes, each claiming to be an adsense guru or some sort of ads profit guru. All Of them has tips on how to improve the adsense profit be it location type of ad and etc. Ive seen and read alot of them but i have nothing much to prove. I mean give me a break , let me get some money , make my day but that's ok.Well all i can say is good luck to me and hope it turns out the best.

Well i couldnt help it but notice a special visitor was at my blog.This visitor was different. The reason was this visitor was visitor 666 from my blogpatrol. I wonder who was it. Was he the so called anti christ, or was he a she, were they evil? or just plain misunderstood.They could be innocent web users like you or me, they could be anyone? Who were them? I hope they found my blog useful or could spell something really bad for me. But Whoever the were , Please come again:)

FOUR BROTHERS

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 4:33 AM | 1 comments »



Ive just borrowed this movie from my local video store, easyvideo TTDI.From the look of the cover and Mark Wahlberg i guess it should be good. The story line goes like this when the mom for these 4 guys gets gundown, these guys get pissed, get guns and get the sob who killed their mom. I sure like the story so far. Will tell more about it after watching it. But before that could anyone share their experience , what you guys think about the movie?

My Numb Drive

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 4:21 AM | 0 comments »


I ve had my thumbdrive for the last 3-4 years. When i bought it it was the latest thing, 125MB Apacer(lame i know but it was the bomb then).This little guy has been with me almost all my college years. Ive saved used it for all my assignments, systems , java projects, C++ , Visual basic, OOAD and many stuff. I was particularly proud of it when it saved and kept and delivered my FINAL YEAR PROJECT safe and sound. BUT even then it was slow, very slow, closed to mind numbing slow. It took atleast a minute or more for my laptop or any pc to detect it. I sure hope my next one would be even better than this,could anyone recommend a better thumbdrive?(P.S how much would an old thumb drive fetch on ebay?:) just asking)

The fastest car

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 3:50 AM | 0 comments »



I saw this magazine on my bed today, i know its old but there was something about it that ive just realised i never noticed before even when i bought it. The headlines, "THE WORLD'S FASTEST CAR!!" I never really noticed that , i guess i was looking at the small caption below on the cover page which says BMW 523i(Yes Im a Bimmer man - even without one).But Back to the headlines I wonder How many times that particular phrase has been repeated in general. I mean before the bugatti veyron, the maclaren F1 was the fastest, then there was the previous car, then another, another and etc. You know, all of us might look back to this time again say 20 or 50 years into the future. We might have been then stopped using petrol as fuel, might be travelling on flying electronic trains or LRT,we might even take computer viruses hijacking our computers as norm, we might be so advance that when look back into history say this particular magazine, we might wonder what were we/they thinking and continue with some insults or praise towards this time. But as for now I hope this post for this blog could be a part of that future history.

Damn Malaysian internet User Survey!!!

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 10:37 AM | 0 comments »

Ive just completed a survey and it was long, so long that i forgot they offer prizes which was the first reason i joined the survery. It started out when i was browsing the star online and saw the survey ad. I Joined in the notion and understanding there give prizes to winners. So i started with question 1 and the level bar rite on top showed Ive only finished 0% of the survey questions, ok i thought but when i passed 10 , 20 then 30 then finaly did the bar showed 25 %, at this point i thought WTH!!! so long , so much time, And im not even have way there. Finally, Ive finished it and was so glad about it , i ve given myself a very egoistic praise("IM THE MAN!!!). Anyway thats all ive got to say about the survey long and boring but priceless time to waste.Try it its good for you!!

Best part was that only after so long did i realise there was no dateline, or when the winners are to be announced.Damn!!!

GIMPING MY TIME

Angry Sakura Flowers

Crouching Stars,Hidden Space

Well today wasnt a very productive time, i havent got any email or calls requesting to attend an interview, i sure wish i had a diploma right now.I really do. All jobs specially programmers requires the very least a diploma to show. I just all the best. So to divert my attention from sobbing ive spent some time making some art using GIMP. Its open source and the best part its free with loads of tutorial online. I havent really tried out Photoshop yet but i understand its about the same as GIMP , only more sophisticated , i guess, anyway its open to debate and here are my master pieces.

I called the first one "Angry Sakura Flowers"
The second one Ive called "Crouching Stars,Hidden Space"(Yes i KNow its a bad name, if you have something better name both my arts with better names on the comments )

I SEE Graduate Developement Programme DHL

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 5:58 AM | 2 comments »


Ive just got an email ,from DHL for graduate development programme for their IT dept. based in cyberjaya. It says that they need any bachelors degree/masters degree candidate. It sounds good and looks established, but the problem is ive just completed my degree just few months ago and i wont be getting my results till next month(just results mind you, not the actual degree).To apply for the position one must use the jobstreet online applicaiton, where you must in about 100 words write why you find a particular subject(technical or business) that you find fascinating,its just for them to know you better. I am so much in a dilema , i really really, want to send an applicaition but i so worried of what might happen should they ask about my degree. What do you think, should I proceed or just go cold turkey and wait for my ever long results?

Nissan proto

The porsche killer they called it, i wasnt very impress with that phrase as porsche are the best car manufacturers in the world.(full stop)I mean look at the boxter, 911 ,and the ever great carrera gt. But now ive seen what they mean , no specs are available and i am so looking foraward to what it can do and will it be the so called porsche killer of another japanese wasging machine. It looks good though, new breath of air thing, looks like the ride that belongs to the terminator. I sure hope i can afford it hahahah,in the future, maybe when we no longer use petroleum as fuel.(i wish)

Nissan GTR PROTO

Mitusbishi X concept

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 4:32 AM | 1 comments »




Ive never really get fond of japanese cars but ive change my mind from the moment ive seen this machine. It looks so cool, soo modern, soo way our time. Even the interior is like looking forward into 20 years into the future. I mean sure it's some what quite empty, but its like quite new polish look, its like when people start to look at modern art, its rubbish basically to anyone back then but now when people understood those un eye pleasing art its beautiful.I hope i can afford it in the future.But for now i dream.

Besides an awfully boring day i had here is what i learned today, may all who read admires my discovery

What do you know after so many years using firefox,ive just find out a new function on fire fox, if you have a mouse with the scroll button (you know the centre scroll button that not many people use), you could click a hyperlink with it and it automatically opens the page on a new tab.You dont have to right click each time.

sorry for bad photo,very bad lighting

Buried volvo to be found

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 12:24 AM | 0 comments »




Things have indeed gone mad.
Guess what volvo have done, They buried a volvo XC90 for anyone to find. Should anyone find it its theirs(crazy rite). Volvo have buried an XC90 some where around our globe for its treasure hunt plan. What happen is that u signed up at their web page(uk domain name) and get regular emails of clues where its buried(for their pirates of the carribean :deadman's treasure promotion). Anyway i guess you could only participate if your from the UK. (lucky guys-BLOOOOOOODY PIRATES!!!!)

Screwed interview

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 11:56 PM | 1 comments »

Yup ive got an email from them to attend an interview, but something else happened<
When i went there about 10 minutes earlier at menara axis,PJ i went to the 7th floor and went to their office. I was directored to a cold hall where i was surprised to meet 8 other candidates there awaiting for the interview. Then it happened, the lady incharge gave us a form fill up our particulars. They wanted to know everything about me, my name ,address, home ownership, parents name and occupation, siblings and occupation and so many stuff i wouldnt tell anyone on a surprise act. But after filling up the form , she took it back, and then guess what started, an aptitude test, 1 hour, what , i wasnt ready for any test, all you said was an interview on the email, wth, ive would have left the place at once but i was looking forward to the position(software developer). It was a confusing test , all we needed to do was to follow instructions but never theless quite confusing, anyway to cut to the chase i didn't do well in the test and was thanked for my time there.("SURE U ARE") Sure i worked my ass off for 3-4 years in obtaining a degree in computing and all you did was pointing out that im stupid and not worthy to work with you. It was dissapointing to think what happened but hey life always has its ups and down, we can only hope for the best. (screw you opensys):)

Watched omen

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 9:11 PM | 2 comments »

Well i went and watch Omen 666 at tgv 1-utama, and i can tell you its quite boring and quite ridicules at the same time, i mean the characters are way out the films league, the main role the hero is an american ambassador and he has the time to find the son of the devils background, how stupid is that, and then there is the part where the kid pushes his mom of the balcony , best part she survives after the high fall she falls landing on her back. Then the good part is where the nanny and the kid easily goes and visit the mom, nanny injects air into moms blod line and watch her suffer and dies,i mean what the hell, the monitors are ruuning and beeping im sure any dctors would notice that in their main console and plus mom ask the ambassador(husband) to stop the kid from killing her, the guy wold atleast ask the gurad to stop the kid from visiting her. Anyway if you ask me i would rather prefer the last older version, if you would like some small plot and quite impossible story line, im sure you would loved this newer version. (Dont expect alot-like underworld or something)

POSEIDON-WARNING MIGHT SPOIL THE ENDING

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 12:45 AM | 0 comments »

I WENT TO THE GSC CINEMA AT 1 UTAMA LAST NIGHT AND GOT A PLACE FOR POSEIDON 7.40 SHOW. TO BE HONEST I WASNT VERY MUCH INTERSTED IN IT BUT I WONDER IF IT IS ANY BETTER THAN THE OLDER VERSION(THE HERO DIES AT LAST,SAD I KNOW).SO WE WENT TO 1 UTAMA, TRIED FINDING GSC, (GSC-4TH FLOOR, TRY GETTING THERE WITHIN 10 MINUTES WITH YOUR PARENTS IM SURE U CANT, THEN FINALLY GOT THERE. BUT THEIR SERVICE WASNT VERY GOOD COMPARE TO TGV CINEMA I USED TO IN THE OTHER CORNER OF 1-UTAMA. THE REASON IS THAT I ASK FOR MR.POTATO CHIPS -THEY SAY NO STOCK,TWISTIES-NOSTOCK,DOUBLE DECKER NO STOCK, AND THE REST-NOSTOCK ETC. FINALLY BOUGHT THEIR COMBO POPCORN AND MINERAL WATER-RM6.10 AND WENT GLEEFULLY TO CINEMA 4- SEAT 9E.AGAIN NOT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING THE CINEMA IS SMALLER THAN TGV AND THE MOVIE SCREEN IS SMALLER TOO. BUT THE SEATS IS MUCH COMFORTABLE THAN TGV(TRUST ME IT HAS A HEAD REST ). RITE THEN ALL READY FOR THE MOVIE , THEN IT HAPPENS ADS!!LOTS OF ADS! IT STARTED FROM 7.40 TO 8.00 THEN FINALLY THE MOVIE STARTS. (SHORT MOVIE I THOUGHT -TOO MANY ADS). FROM THE MOVIE YOU KNOW THE SHIP-POSEIDON IS A REAL SPECIAL EFFECT SET UP,LOOKS REALLY REAL TOO.THEN THE HERO STARTS TO RUN WE SEE HIN RUN AROUND THE WHOLE BOAT(THE HERO NOT KURT RUSSEL-QUITE A TURN OF FOR ME).LET ME CUT TO THE CHASE,SHIP TURN OVER WHEN GETS HIT BY HUGE WAVE. ALOT OF PEOPLE DIES. SOME SURVIVES BUT LATER DIES EXCEPT FOR THE HERO KURT RUSSEL AND HIS ENGAGED DAUGTHER, HER BOYFRIEND, LADY WITH SMALL KID(SON),OLD GUY(RICHARD DREYFUSS) AND A HOT BABE(ON THE BOAT ILLEGALLY BUT WHO DIES HALFWAY THE MOVIE)REST IS SPECIAL EFFECT TILL THE END OF MOVIE AND THE BEST PART THE HEROS DOESNT DIE THIS TIME, YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO- I LL LEAVE IT FOR YOU GUYS TO GUESS. OVERALL THE MOVIE WAS SHORT BUT WITH REALLY GREAT EFFECTS,FAST ACTION, REALLY GOOD TROUBLES AND OBSTACLES FOR THE SURVIVORS TO OVERCOME. I REALLY RECOMMEND IT TO BE WATCHED, ONLY DONT HOPE FOR A LONG MOVIE AND WHO LIVES IN THE MOVIE. (P.S FERGIE-BLACK EYE PEAS IS IN THE MOVIE)

The Bus Stop

Thank You Teacher! Finally the last day of school, no more students, no more books, no more Headmasters dirty looks. The school holidays are finally here, finally. Sure it was just a 2 week school holiday, but this time it was different. My request to get a government quarters was approved, the letter arrived last week and I have started packing since. It all happened fast, all in the nick of time actually as I could no longer able to afford paying the rent for the home I’m staying now and to support my family expenditures at the same time, well I am just a school teacher. Anyway the place I am living now is cramped with not much room space.

I moved to the new place and it was great, there was not much stuff to move and was finished moving by the very end of the day. It is a big apartment on the 3rd floor with a large hall, 3 rooms, kitchen and 2 bathrooms. I moved to the biggest room of the house, the master bedroom. The room was big and the window was facing the street. I could see the road, the nearby buildings, traffic lights and a bus stop.

Soon it was night and I was getting sleepy and tired from the move and all. I retreated to my room, shut the lights off and lied down on my bed. I rested my eyes and fell asleep. But then it happened! A loud scream, so loud it screamed me awake. It was as though a young girl was being skinned alive. I stood up from my bed, covered my ears with hand and shut my eyes so tight I couldn’t care if my eyes would pop back to the back of my head. It just won’t stop, it just wouldn’t stop, God please stop it, every time I put my hand down the scream just drill into my head. I ran out from my room, but the scream still wouldn’t stop, I ran desperately to the house door, reached for the keys and opened the door. I slammed the door shut and ran down the stairs to the front open air car park still with my hands covering my ears.

I held my head up, opened my eyes, look toward the street light and finally opened my ears. It was quite, so quite I could hear the street lights light buzzing sound. It was just me alone in the car park. I was so confused, anxiety roamed within me, what happened? What was that sound, what is going on? What is really happening! I was sweating through my pants, and shivering from the cold experience and the cold night. My sweat didn’t make things any warmer. Then just outside my apartments building fence, I could see someone or at least the figure of someone sitting at the bus stop, it was a young school girl sitting in the dark stop. I could only see so much at the stop, it was dark and lighted up only by the very street light I was next to. It was late at night. Who in their right mind would wait for a bus now? There are even no cars passing by the streets. I moved closer to the fence to get a better view, she turn and looked back at me, I knew that from the sudden light reflection in her eyes towards me. She stood up and started walking closer to me, by this time she was halfway across the street, then all of the sudden she turned her attention towards my window. Strange I thought, what was she looking at? I looked up towards my window, it was lighted dimly by the street lights, but there was a figure standing on the edge of the window. What? Who is that?

While I was looking at the mysterious figure, I felt a sudden tap on my shoulders. It was her, the girl. I looked around for anyone, anyone other than the girl, but no one was around. “Have you seen my sister?” she uttered. I didn’t answer. “Have you seen my sister lina?” This time I just shook my head saying no. I knew this girl does not belong in this world, I knew that if nothing is true to what I felt in my heart, it must be untrue, doubly I felt.

“No!!” again I say to her. I could see her face so innocent, she looked so much like my students but there was something not right to her, she looked as though unsatisfied, angry towards something. I knew this from experience from dealing school students.

“No? No? No!!!” Her tone increased by each answer, her pale ghostly face started turning meaner, her eyes were all pupil, her face started frowning, and it was hideous and cold. I turned my attention to the ground. I kept praying in my heart “Please go, please go away!!” I could still see her shoes. Then it was gone, her shoes were no longer at my sight I stood my head up, looked around and there she was standing on the centre of the road again. She was smiling at me. I concentrated on her smile so much that I did not notice but a huge bas was coming towards her, it was fast and big. It s bound to hit her, I screamed to her move!! , run!! Bas!! MOVE!! She turned her attention to the at the last moment but it was to late, the bus smash her to the road so hard , her head slam towards the road at full force with a loud smack. I looked in horror, I was without words, I didn’t know what to think. The bus just speed off and there she was on the road, her blood spilled and flowed all around her and the street. But before I could move closer, it started again, the huge scream. I closed my ears and started running, I ran and ran till I could no longer hear the scream. I didn’t care where. Then I stumbled on something and fall to the ground. I hit my head and was left unconscious. The very next morning I woke up and found few of the residents beside me. Of course they was curious and asked what was I doing on the tar road. I explained to them what had happen last night. Word for word I used explaining to the very least detail. They weren’t very pleased upon hearing this news. I could see it in their face.

It’s true. “True? What do you mean? I ask one of them” Previous owner of your apartment belongs to a teacher, she was an English teacher with 2 daughters. One of her daughters ran off with some one and never was heard again. Her other daughter sorted out looking for her one whole day but had been killed in an accident. The bus hit her.

“But what happen to the mother? What happen to her?” I asked. Well she waited for her other daughter to come back since. “And then?” I asked. Well then, she was never heard again till today. How long since this happen? Well about 40 years ago I think. Forty years ago? That’s very long, I thought. How did you know about this story? I asked them. Well my dear you told me about it. “What? What do you mean?” I ask. Well it’s easy, (a brief pause) you’re the English TEACHER.

WHAT?????????????

The end.

Maxis = Great

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 4:17 AM | 0 comments »

Sorry for taking such along time, but i was busy finishing up my Final Year Project Presentation.
Overall the project presentation went well,i sure hope the supervisors and advisors feel the same way.

Any way from the last post the Maxis interview, it went well, despite the fact i was late and i could answer most of the question thrown at me quite alright. Anyway theytold me they need my results as soon as possible which i have sent to them 2 weeks ago and thus waiting for their feedback.The interview was done with two maxis personal mainly who asked me quite numerous question mostly about myself and what have i done in school(alot of question on my Final Year Project-Online Airline ticketing, not much about programming though). Finally i was quite please and tired from the journey and hope all the best from them soon.

So what happen when I got there

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 4:34 AM | 0 comments »

It was quite a day for me to get there,
First when i arrive there, the only landmark for me was Sunway pyramid, The complex with the big lion head, and best part it was 10.00 am already, i knew i was going to be late, an started searching for the place, soon i walked up to a few taxi drivers and ask for directions. One Indian man was kind enough to point out the place imediately, he gave me instrutions to walk through sunway pyramid, cross their bridge to the Sunway Hotel and walk abit from there.The other guy says he drive me there For RM 5.00 bucks,talk about making a quick buck, really dangerous if i was a foreigner, i mean all i ask was direction not a ride and all i needed was help not service. I hope this blogged is enough to warn this kind of people. But hei i followed the directions and found my self in front of Sunway hotel, sure i was already 10 minutes late but still i was not there yet. I wonder what would they do ,could they cancelled the interview altogether, i really hope not

Sunway what!! I thought KLCC-Maxis

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 4:24 AM | 0 comments »

SO when i called Maxis to arranged an interview,i was quite surprise when the maxis HR guy says it was based in Sunway located on the Maxis Tower. I didnt even know there was a Maxis Tower in Sunway. He gave me the location of the place as i havent been to sunway for a long time, and soon found how get there.Happily and gleely i promised to be there at friday 10.00 am. I even checked their map and sure was, Maxis Sunway tower was just nearby Sunway pyramid, next to Sunway hotel.Piece of cake i thought but it was soon after i knew how far was it.
P.S - ALL locations and roads within maps always look smaller and shorter than the real thing

Maxis called

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 6:53 AM | 3 comments »

GUESS WHAT!Maxis called me after filling up their web for job application. The position for programmer. As we all Know Maxis is the No.1 telecomunication company in malaysia, and im glad to get response from. Ive called them and arraged a meeting for an appointment. I really do hope things work out .

Its been long since last post,but so far havent got any job offer yet,
I am starting to feel bored,been sending online applications to IBM,Public Bank, Silverlake, and many but no idea when they would response back, starting to regret on rejecting the dell but i think its for the best. for me that is.

Unemployed

Its been about few days since I rejected dells job application,so far no news about other job openings for me, I wonder if i had done the right thing.Heres hoping for the best.

Not interested

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 5:01 AM | 0 comments »

So guess what, i got the job and just needed to fax my letter of completion and resume to them to get the approvement form or aggreement to join them. I finally told them i was not going to do so as i wasnt intersted in the job and thus ended my first job appliacation. I shall remember it for life .

The call

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 4:57 AM | 0 comments »

So get a call from dell malaysia telling me to get a call at 7.30 to 8.00 pm call from australia, a lady Ms.Karen law. It was later canceled to 7.00 -7.30am next morning. I waited for the call an finally got a called from her at about 7.30 am. It was like the interview session again but shorter version this time. I suspect they want to test my english again. it took barely 3 minutes . I went to continue my sleep afterwards.

Teleconference or something

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 4:48 AM | 0 comments »

I got a call asking me to call a number by 10.30 am from the lady and a code to join the conference. Great!. So i called them about 10.30 and waited.It was funny, no one knew including my self what to expect during the conference. I was the first to call and waited for dells spokeperson to come on, while i was waiting a girl called came next, he heard me sneezing and wondered i was the dell guy, i explained to her i wasnt, it happened again from another guy who called as well asking whether i was dell again,please stop asking me i thought it was getting to be embarrasing for me,Finally 4 guys were on line and then dell came in, he's name was Mr. Shankar.He congaratulated first for coming till this far, and started explaining what happens next, in seems their australian counter part would call us next to interview us, this was the deciding point as it tells us whether or not we get the job.Rest was just advising us how to answer, some questions session and finally ended within 15 minutes.

I made it

Posted by Stephen of ibelin | 4:46 AM | 0 comments »

Yup, i got the call and i made it, i passed the interview, but it was not the end of it.They would call me to attend a teleconference throught the phone. This is new (i thought) and happily even though i wasnt interested in the job.

Then he went on asking about what if in certain scenarios , say what if your friends speakers was not working what would you do, steps included,what if the os would not load and others, it was like testing my pc knowlege. It was ok.O h yeah he asked where would i get IT news and information and some hardware descriptions, for me was intels latest chips.Well it finished finally.Here he asked me to ask questions to him regarding the job advertise. i ask about the pay as i wasnt sure how much do fresh gradute earn, he said it was up to the HR and then i asked what could i learn and look forward this job and progress, he says take his case for instance he has been working fo dell for 5 years now, hes in the level 1 or somethign, he nows coaches new be like me who just starts working in dell. Hmm interesting i thought.Once that was over i still had to stay for a while.

Finally!! Interview

Yup, it was my turn finally to attend the interview,finally after waiting each interviewer calling each one of us. He's name was Robert or something, i was nervous, it was my first interview since i completed my degree. It started out ggreat he introduced himself to me and i did the same for myself.So guess waht he asked first -work experience, i explained i had none but could relate it back to my group projects from school. It was actually acceptable, he wanted to know how was my experience in my group projects. Great i thought! There was a lot of things i could tell him about them. So his first question was that to describe it, what would happen it this groupmember would have done that, this, and other group work issues. I was happy to explain it and showed my flair in making groupwork work!

The wait! again?

It was a long wait, but half way i made aquintance with a nice girl, she spotted my completion of degree letter ealier and found it was farmilliar. Guess what, she graduted from the same school i am from, only she graduated last year. We had some talk till the it was my turn to for the interview.

So what next?

There was the job presentation like what you would be doing for this particular job, how you could progress from it where you can move from it. It sounded great, but i was not very much interested cause what you essentially do is just answer calls and help trouble shooting customers problem.Once that was over, i was asked to wait in the earlier hall for the next interview.Here I thought "It wasnt done?". So i moved back to the next hall and waited another 1 1/2 hour for the actual interview with a real person.

Test? Bring it !

So i had to sit a type of test(questionaire they called it). In the paper was 30 questions, it started out by testing the english, IQ , and some computer basics mainly software terms and hardwares name s and their users.Piece of cake i thought but it was reall nerve wrecking to do it witht he clock ticking in front of you. Yup they made a kind of 20 minute stop watch on the projection slide. With each tick it was like competing the olympics but hei i finished it. I even ask a sharper pencil before the test started. So what happen next,one guy collected the paper for marking and the other started the Dells presentation. When he asked us does anyone has any dell workstaions or product, none of us carried up our hands. Sure proves dells popularity.He went on explaining dells jobs and the organisation within dell for Malaysia.Then the other guy then came up and guess what all of us passed the test.Hmm not bad i thought specially for a guy who just finished his final year degree barely 24 hours ago.

What happen?

Well as far as i mention the work experience thing to almost everyone conducting the interview, it wasnt muct of a problem or made much attention. Glad to to know that. So what happen was that right after i submitted the form, i was made to wait in a hall,with other participants not more than 20 guys, foreigner ,older girls and guys. They gave me a cheap sticker to stick on my shirt. I was made to wait like 1/2 an hour then was called with about 10 guys to another presentation hall. It had tables chairs and a whole projection slides and sets. It look like some exam hall except without the projection machine and screen. Best part it was a exam hall, we were given 20minutes to finish up 30 questions, Then i thought so this is what a walk inter view is like.

The interview

Yup i just got back from it,the interview took less that 2 hours,more time waiting that actual interview.SO here's what happen, i arrived about 11.something am, went to the cute lady at the reception table for dell,she gave a form to fill(particulars and academic achivements, work experience etc.) I could fill it up(i didnt even bring a proper resume)but could not provide any work experience. I wonder what would happen?Would they ditch me any time i mention i have no working experience?

What is Technical support?

That was my dillema, on the very same morning of the walkin interview , ive checked Dells web sote and to my horror learnt that it was like kinda a call center job, except you help DEll's customer or client on how to use Dell pc, servers and etc.I had doubts attending the interview as i hate doin something that not need my degree(much), i even thought of blowing it off but hei lets try it for the kick of it, it may better prepare me in future interviews

Technical support specialist, sounds great huh? WEll this was what i read last 2 weeks ago from the ad, It was a job walk in interview done by dell in the Renaissance Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. I thought of giving it a shot just barely a day after my final degree exam.I didnt meet requirement though like at least 1 year working experience but may be i will relate to my group projects in school.Wish me luck
