    Hey Kwun,

    After the new software transfer, I couldn't seem to find the Tan Aik Huang articles posted by Cheung. Do you know what happened with it? Also, did you delete the wwcbro intro. thread so humorously created by SmashingBird? Either the threads are really lost or perhaps the forum search engine is not as robust as its previous version.

    Cappy, I had the same problem before, but it was because I forgot the set the time frame to be "From the beginning" , which means all-time.

    If it is a bug....man....this is going to be a major one as we will lose threads little by little..... :(

    Jeff, I searched the Tan Aik Huang articles by user name since I knew Cheung posted it. I got almost everything from the beginning (even Cheung's first post) except those articles:(.

    Heh! Cheung, I didn't have all that time on my hand to read up on your thousands of 'contributions':rolleyes:. Just sifting through the pile of gibberish to look for those informative articles. Trust me... I think I actually spend way too much time on the court;).

    Why the hell for?! Nobody of the right mind would stalk another person. Of course, Cheung might take it as a compliment if you choose to stalk a humble physician half-way across the world:rolleyes:.

    On a serious note, we should always be aware of the dark side of the internet.

    Not every person is of the right mind in this world. There have been abuses of the internet and forums in general in the past, present and future. Information that a person puts up on public domain is one thing. I would hope that nobody deliberately goes further in finding another persons personal details without their permission from using BF.

    Being responsible citizens, we should remain alert to this possibility. Stalking is not just limited to famous people - ordinary citizens of whatever status can attract unwanted attention and be harmed. :mad:

    True enough. If it sets your mind at ease, Cheung, you don't need to worry about me:D. I am not that nutty to obsess over other persons than myself:p.

    -

    Humble physicians, do you know one needs to score a perfect CPGA of

    4.00 in A levels to qualify for med school in Msia. Also only abt 50% of

    applicants are accepted , by lottery.

    For private med school fees are abt US$100k.

    Bbn, I hope you didn't take humble to be derogatory. I do understand the high standards requirement for the profession. What words would you consider as the opposite of ostentatious?

    for what?
    to post them, find them, or confirem they can be posted again?
    They might be lying around my hard-drive somewhere if it's just a matter of posting them again.
