Size doesn’t matter guys…

Internet test using http://www.speedtest.net on 31.08.2011 at my room in

Studentenwerk Univ Duisburg Essen, Muelheim ad Ruhr, Germany

When I was in Bachelor, you know what I did at night started at 23.00 till 4.00 at morning?.The time when the other people are about to hit their bed, when the other student who really clever are studying hard, when the other people who are interested on Internet start downloading the information about what is really happening outside our small room. I did the last situation in Energy Conversion Laboratory at Andalas University. At that time I just want to make wishes that University or Internet provider gives me Internet connection over 8 Mbps not 300 bps in downloading and just 1 Mbps in uploading, don’t show me 50 bps in uploading. In my point of view I dont need many digit of number, just need small one but it can do anything. That similar words also said by first President of Indonesia Mr. Ir. Soekarno about youth of Indonesia ” Give me thousands of oldsters, with them I would be able to move mountain, but if I am given ten youths who are having passionate and fiery, their love on nation and homeland, i will shake the world“. Everyone believes that a life of a nation depends on their youths. Sometimes i miss the era where Majapahit with Hayam Wuruk and Gadjah Mada are being the leader, Sriwijaya with Samaratungga built Borobudur and control over Malaya and Thailand from Sumatera. The Kingdom where they are in Victory at that time. Starting from us, the generation who are having the dreams and aiming that someday their nation will be having much influence on the world.

I remembered one of famous Quiz in Indonesia and also over the world. But i thing you also remember “Who wants to be a Millionaire?’. Yes..it was released in India and became one of the most famous film over the world and won 8 Academy Awards from 10 Nominations in 2009. Did you remember what was the first question of this Film before the film begun?..yes..here is that..

Mumbai, 2006

Jamal Malik is one question away
from winning 20 million rupees.

How did he do it?

A: He cheated
B: He’s lucky
C: He’s a genius
D: It is written

To know the answer, please watch the film and you get them. Believe or not, this situation also happened once in same Quiz, “Who wants to be a Millionaire Indonesia“. A man who has profession as a paperboy won 500 Million Rupiah. He answered question by question that given. Why someone who is just holding Senior High School Certificate was able to give the right answer of the given questions?. There is no more option beside he is reading anything, therefore he knows every answer of the given questions. One of my favourite quotation from Muhammad Hatta since I moved here is “I am willing to be imprisoned, as long as the books, because with the books I am free“.

first of happy September 2011
