Kublai Khan’s Lost Fleet - Documentary

Did the Kamikaze, or rather typhoon actually decimated the whole fleet of 4400 ships? In any case, the history of Japan will be very different if the invasion was successful.

Big loss from Singapore bank sale

Temasek, the Singapore state investor, sold its stake in Bank of America in the first three months of this year for a large loss, it has announced.

As usual, we have to hear it from a foreign media. Well, so much for the ‘in it for the long haul’.

Great presentation.

On Ubuntu Causes Girl To Drop Out of College

Link

This is wrong in so many levels.

  1. You have to be deliberately insistent to buy a Dell with Ubuntu on their web site. Unless she is enticed by the 0$ Ubuntu OS.
  2. Loading of software to configure a wireless internet connection are not necessary these days. She just need to point the web browser to the local ip address of the router. Or she can just call the hotline or a geek for help.
  3. Openoffice can read and write Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint files. Don’t know where Abbie gets the idea that it doesn’t.

In short, it doesn’t mean that Abbie would not have technical problems if she buys a Windows machine. Just that it will cost her more (Vista and Microsoft Office license) to do essentially the same thing.

On Muslim Demographics

Link

That’s based on the assumption that everyone needs to belong to a religion. Still, I am probably glad I would not be around by then…
