Lessons from Egypt: Learn to be independent

I WISH to heap praises on our government, the Royal Malaysian Air Force, Wisma Putra and other volunteers for undertaking the mammoth task of evacuating thousands of Malaysian students from Egypt.

However, I feel the reported RM50 million spent on the mass evacuation could have been avoided or partially saved. My nephew (fondly called Angah), a fourth-year medical student at Mansoura University, about 100km from Cairo, concurs with me on this matter.

Here is a brief account of the worrying trend among our students, as related by Angah.

Malaysian students had been forewarned by their respective unions not to venture into cities on Tuesday, Jan 25, which happened to be a public holiday, to commemorate Police Day because a big anti-Hosni Mubarak public demonstration was to be held on that day.

The sight of the hundreds of thousands of Egyptians marching down the streets prompted our students to push the panic button.

Fearing civil unrest beyond unprecedented proportions, they began calling their parents, Wisma Putra, the Malaysian embassy and even our television stations asking for help and demanding their parents to pressure the government to bring them home.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and our embassy in Cairo had initially adopted a wait-and-see attitude, which was rightly so, because Egyptians were more concerned about ejecting their president and not ejecting foreigners from their country.

Furthermore, the populace respects Malaysian students. After all, our students have been studying at Cairo's Al-Azhar University even before Merdeka, albeit in smaller numbers.

Needless to say, the persistent calls from students to their parents and from parents to Wisma Putra, our embassy and TV stations left our government with no choice but to evacuate the students.

Nonetheless, we could have saved a substantial amount of money by evacuating only students in the two hotspots, Cairo and Alexandria, because in other cities where our students were located, Mansoura, Zagazig, Tanta and Dumyat, there was less public disorder.

Here are two lingering questions: In future, would parents expect our government to recall our students from countries where they are studying if things over there go awry? Next, who's footing the bill for our students' flight back to Egypt?

A costly lesson has been learned from this event.

Parents should remind their children that once they board a plane to further their studies abroad, they are on the threshold of adulthood and should not act like cry-babies shouting: "We want to go home". They should have courage in the face of adversity.

"Bravo" to the few students who stayed put in Egypt and to my nephew Angah and his 60-odd fellow students who went to Turkey, Jordan and Europe during the uprising.

They have the stuff that "Malaysia Boleh" is made of.

Convert Your Laptop Into a Wireless Hotspot

Source: Thanks to

Did you know that your laptop can function as a wireless hot spot? As long as your laptop runs both Ethernet and Wi-Fi at the same time, it can work as a wireless hot spot.

But why would you want to convert your laptop into a hot spot? Imagine a situation where there are several people, probably attending a conference, but there is just one ethernet connection. How could everybody connect to the internet? Simple, convert one of the laptops into a hot spot and share the single ethernet connection with everyone else.

Let’s see how to do that. It is actually much easier than you would imagine.

In Windows Vista:

* Connect the laptop to the internet using the ethernet cable.
* Open the control panel and go into the Network and Sharing Center.
* Set up a new connection called a wireless ad hoc network.
* Give it a name and setup the desired security options.
* Deselect Save this Network.
* Finally, click on Turn on Internet Connection Sharing.
* Now anyone can connect to your laptop’s Wi-Fi.

In Windows XP:

* Make sure your laptop is connected to the Internet using the ethernet cable.
* Go to Control Panel and open up Network Connections.
* Right-click on your wireless connection and select Properties.
* On the Wireless Networks tab, check Use Windows to configure my wireless network setting.
* Under Preferred networks, click Add, and name your network.
* Select shared, and provide a password.
* Click the Advanced button and select Computer-to-Computer (ad hoc) networks only.
* Go back to the Network Connections control panel and open the Properties dialog for your wired internet connection.
* Go to the Advanced menu and check the box next to Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection.

It looks like a lot of steps for XP, but when you actually do it, you would be up and running in a couple of minutes.

MiFi is a portable broadband wireless device about the size of a credit card that combines functions of a modem, router and access point. MiFi is a line of compact wireless routers produced by Novatel Wireless that act as mobile Wi-Fi hotspots. The sleek looking MiFi will let users select access to EVDO or HSPA high speed data networks. MiFi offers can be shared not only between users, but between devices such as laptops, cameras, gaming devices and multimedia players. Perfect for carpooling and relieving boredom in the back seat during that long road trip with kids - think Nintendo DS or Sony PSP - the MiFi will support up to five users simultaneously.. The MiFi works at a distance up to 10m or 30ft distance and will provide internet or network access to any WiFi enabled PC, Apple Mac, Linux, Android or peripheral device.The internal modem accesses a wireless signal and the internal router shares that connection among users and devices. MiFi is sometimes called a personal hotspot.

MiFi was designed to simplify setting up a small local area network (LAN). The device supports five users and can also network Wi-Fi-capable devices including digital cameras, notebooks, MP3 players and gaming systems. A MiFi device could be used to set up an ad-hoc network with a shared Internet connection anywhere with cellular connectivity.

Here are some of MiFi's other features:
• Storage capacity.
• The ability to host applications.
• Support for EV-DO or UMTS/HSDPA 3G technologies.
• Four hours active use, forty hours standby before the internal battery needs to be recharged.
• Can be configured for automatic email synching and virtual private network (VPN) connection.
• Support for remote management.

Maher Zain - Insya'Allah (Malay Version)

Andainya kau rasa tak berupaya
Hidup sendirian tiada pembela
Segalanya suram
Bagai malam yang kelam
Tiada bantuan tiada tujuan
Janganlah berputus asa
Kerana Allah bersamamu

Insya Allah Insya Allah Insya Allah
Ada jalannya
Insya Allah Insya Allah Insya Allah
Ada jalannya

Andainya dosamu berulang lagi
Bagai tiada ruang untuk kembali
Dikau keliru atas kesilapan lalu
Membelenggu hati dan fikiranmu
Janganlah berputus asa
Kerana Allah bersamamu

Ulang Chorus

Kepada Yang Esa
Yakin padaNya
Panjatkanlah doa
Oh Ya Allah
Pimpinlah daku dari tersasar
Tunjukkan daku ke jalan yang benar
Jalan yang benar
Jalan yang benar
Jalan yang benar

Ulang Chorus
