How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Windows... opening to harassment?

Since my recent system crash and re-installation  using built-in tools provided by Asus, I was quite happy using my Windows 7 Starter... until I tried to open a PPS file which I couldn't. I was led to download the required software and ended up with a warning that my Windows is not genuine! First of all, I can live without opening any PPS file. So I wish I could get back to my original state. But IT is so dynamic that every now and again one is posed with the question whether to update. To update, I am likely to get into trouble, and not to update also seems to raise suspicions that I am using a counterfeit system.

I also made a mistake by downloading Windows Office, thinking it was part of the Windows 7 Starter. It has the effect of transforming my text and spreadsheet files held under Open Office into that of Windows, creating confusion as to whether to keep in original data format or new. In fact, for simple text, I would prefer using Wordpad, without all the extra features for editing.

Now, it is a matter of time before my system will crash, thanks to the ever vigilant Windows cyber troopers.

I wish life can be simple without the continuous updates of new features which complicate matters to old folks like myself.
