Recent increase in website traffic.

Not too shure where it’s been coming from, but thanks everyone who’s been visiting the site. One person whom I do know has been reading my blog regularly is Mr Tan Kar Wee (Google him, you know you want to, current and future employers), who recently revealed to me his voyeuristic inclinations by way of an SMS-ed belated birthday greeting. I suspect he didn’t want to be just another statistic. LOL!

Anyway, he says he’s been using Google Reader to read my links. At last count, there were three subscribers to my feed – so I’m guessing the other two subscribers are Dr Ashley Tan and Mr Andrew Chong. Right? πŸ™‚

Kar Wee was also asking where I get my links from and how I post them up. It’s also related to Google Reader – this post should explain everything. Google Reader rocks, but my readers rock more! πŸ™‚

Undergrads kicked out of hostel for streaking.

Hostel residents: Others have run naked before.


By the way, I may have been the one (or at the very least, one of the people) who provided the tip-off about the story… And believe it or not, it was through Twitter. Here’s the chronology of tweets with some background information:

I posted these, and other ‘web’ tweets using when I returned to NUS for the India Trip exhibition thingy.

I learnt about the expulsion from Zee, who was “one of the KR guys” I met. I’m not going to comment too much on the punishment, but let’s just say that I believe it’s a fallacy for every action to deserve a punitive reaction, especially one of this measure.

It took a sharp-eyed journo who’s very in tune with the workings of social media to spot my Tweet, and before long, the reporters were on their way.

So ladies and gentlemen, if you ever need an example about how collaborative Web 2.0 technologies are, and the potential for these technologies, here’s a classic one for you. Cheers, and have a great weekend.

P.S. My reply:

Printing from your laptop in the NIE Library.

I know I promised many people I’d put this up, so here it is – the guide to configuring your laptop to send files to the printer in the NIE library, so you don’t have to book a computer just to print that one page of work.

  1. Go to ‘System Preferences’.

  2. Click on ‘Print and Fax’.

  3. Click on the ‘Plus’ sign (+) to add a new printer.

  4. Input the following values:
    • Protocol: Line Printer Daemon – LPD
    • Address:
    • Queue: printer_level4
    • Name: printer_level4
    • Print Using: HP LaserJet 8000 Series.

    Click ‘Add’.

  5. Place a check next to the ‘Duplex Unit’ option, and change the Total Printer Memory option to ’36MB or more’. Click ‘Continue’.

  6. Your printer should’ve been added. To confirm, double-click the ‘printer_level4’ icon, click on the blue ‘Info’ button and check to see if the values match what you see in the picture.

  7. To print: Go to File -> Print or hit Cmd-P to send your file to the printer.
  8. Go to the release station, and type in your user name. It’s usually the name which you use to log in to your computer, but without spaces. Mine is Laremy Lee (c.f. Step 1), so the user name I input is ‘laremylee’.

Hope this helps!
