You Might Be a Programmer if...

  • You lust for O'Reilly books.

  • You know that "goto considered harmful".

  • You are looking for the "else" at the end of this joke.

  • You believe that making a wrong program worse is no sin.

  • Every combination of three letters is a meaningful acronym for you.

  • When you are counting objects, you go "0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D...".

  • You can remember seventeen computer passwords but not your anniversary.

  • You are sure that the year 2000 is a leap year, and know why it is dangerous.

  • You start laughing hysterically when the topic of computer reliability is brought up.

  • You go to balance your checkbook and discover that you're doing the math in hexadecimal.

  • The language you are best speaking is English, but the language you are best writing is Java.

  • On vacation, you are reading a computer manual and turning the pages faster than everyone else who is reading John Grisham novels.

Now i'm in home treatment with so lot medicine that I got from the hospital. I also should be injected by medicine in hospital for 3 days in row. Thanks God that the diseases detected early, so it not too late to get treatment.

So, this is my time to take a rest at home, at Dok V Jayapura, but no problem, there is a internet connection here, also Fana installed a satellite TV (Indovision) few days ago, so not too bad treatment. Hope can recovered soon.

Denpasar, 7 April 2007, Garuda Indonesia

Waiting for GA-652 leaving for Jayapura, 23:28 07 April 2007, I sat in waiting room with other GA passenger with flight number GA-419, that delayed because of sparepart problem on the airplane. After wait for few hours, the GA management gave announcement that GA-419 is canceled, than all passengers get free hotel room to take a rest, then will fly again with same airplane in Sunday, 8 April 2007 for about 9.30 GMT + 8.

Just think that GA management gave last option, because spare part late to came. Let think positive, safety first!

The Human Brain is a Poor Judge of Risk

When an animal -- lizard, bird, mammal, even you -- senses something that's a potential danger, the amygdala is what reacts immediately, triggering the fight-or-flight response.
