We are a domain name registration and dispute organization in Asia, which mainly deal with the global companies' domain name registration and internet intellectual property right protection.Recently, we have a very important issue needing to confirm with your company.
On Nov 12, 2010, we received an application formally. One company named "Qinlong Holdings Pty Ltd" wanted to register the Network Brand " tiansiang " and some domain names through our body.
Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names and find that the keyword of these domain names and Network Brand is identical with your company's. According to our technique department's investigation, Qinlong Holdings does not have prior rights to this keyword but you do. So we have to confirm with you at two points:
- If your company consign Qinlong Holdings to register these domain names and Network Brand , we will send application form to them and help them finish the registration at once.
- If your company have nothing to do with Qinlong Holdings, they maybe have other purposes to register these domain names and Network Brand.
We have suspended their application and can not proceed before we get your confirmation. If you are the corporate representative of your company, please reply this email and I will feedback some problems to you; If you are not, please forward my message to the right person soon.

An UNCENSORED History of Malaysia: What Our HISTORY TEXT BOOKS did NOT teach us about our EARLY Cultural Relations, MERDEKA, and the TRUE MALAY DILEMA
NOTE: This Article was written and published on Facebook on the 31st of August 2009, Malaysia’s Independence Day in response to an irresponsible actions caused by UMNO supporters carrying a severed ‘Cow Head’ to incite racial and religious tensions among the Hindu’s in Malaysia. It was this very incident which ‘woke me up’ as a Malay and a Malaysian who was previously politically neutral to fight against UMNO’s racism and racist policies and behaviors. And I have never stopped fighting since…

Two weeks after Hari Raya holidays a friend coming back from Brunei to visit us. We met in 1Utama shopping center. She noticed that the crowd has reduced. She was wondering whether this is the sign of economic slowdown in Malaysia.
It could be Hari Raya holidays, I said. Many Muslim friends are celebrating their holidays for up to 30 days, such as open house, to invite friends and relatives. So they might still not come back to town yet.
Unsure by the real situation, we observe the trend for a few more weeks.
Third week on Sunday 12PM I went to IKEA for lunch. That's the usual crowd and trust me you will not want to go at 12PM as the traffic would be very jam. To my surprise, there was no jam and I could easily went in and find a parking spot. In the restaurant, the queue was long but it wasn't difficult to find a place to sit down. If you were one of IKEA frequent visitors, you would notice that finding a place to sit down was a nightmare. Not anymore.
I still didn't want to believe it. May be our government has improved traffic system. Or may be shopping center has finally improved something so that we can have more relaxed shopping experience!
I talked to more people. An experienced business man told me the economic has hit the retails business. It was hitting the exports business. This is a chain effect.
I waited another one week, I went to Megamall shopping center. As expected, the traffic is smoother, crowd reduced. I was talking to a retailer and he asked whether I noticed anything different to the patronage nowadays. I told him what I noticed. He said his business is dropping. It started about 2 months back. That was one month before Hari Raya.
So... this is really the slowdown of the market! It is showing sign at retails business.
Finally I talked to a Malay friend who is quite familiar with the government servants. He said few days before Hari Raya government has paid advanced salary for celebrating Hari Raya. Now everyone is waiting for the next salary month which may take longer than 30 days. So he suggested to observe again until December. He agreed that retails business seemed slowdown.
What is your observation?
UPDATE (9:36pm): Suddenly all working well now! Did someone fix something? I can "feel" it! Hope this stay.
Recently our Internet access to Gmail suddenly slowed down starting around evening of Tuesday, 29 Aug 2009. The errors are lost connection while login in, loading and still-loading, and almost impossible to access the mail at all. The problem is narrowed down to only affect TMnet Streamyx users using ADSL and SDSL.
The slow down also affect connection to Amazon web services, but it is still isolated because it appeared to work fine at slow speed link like ADSL at home, but not in higher speed SDSL. This is quite strange. More tests and observations needed.
All affected are international or oversea sites. Local sites within Malaysia are fine. However, not every places. Access via web browser are okay within Malaysia but access via remote login like SSH failed in certain cases.
We have observed this from Tue until Thu (today) and situation not yet improved.
Any users who use Gmail and Google Apps will be affected. If you are having this issues, please try a few options suggested below.
- Try different ISP services if you have the option.
- Try Maxis or Celcom 3G data connection (fixed data rate plan recommended).
- Use "basic HTML" interface of Gmail. Gmail probably already recommend you if you have difficulties.
- Disable use of SSL to see any improvement. This is for testing if it is bandwidth limitation. Use of SSL is recommended unless your email is not important. Re-enable back SSL for production use.
- Use POP3 or IMAP to access email. You will need email client such as Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Mail, to do this.
We suspect TMnet Streamyx is "shrinking" bandwidth speed to Gmail servers or Gmail usage has increased tremendously. Normally the use of web application is mainly HTTP, meaning, unencrypted. But Gmail default to SSL, which is HTTPS. So if the demand increased, ISP may see more SSL traffics, which might cause them to panic. Plus, SSL traffic is larger than normal web (http) traffic by at least 50% more; if not, 2 to 3 times more.
SSL traffic also cannot be cached. This mean no bandwidth optimization can be done to improve the situation.
The problem may last for more days or probably one month. Meanwhile, be patient or call 123 to complain.
Three days left to 52rd Merdaka (Malaysia Independent Day), despite 1Malaysia slogan for racial unity call from Prime Minister, a group of Muslim Malaysians did exactly the opposite. See here and here on the blogs. Only brief news reported in mainstream media.
To add insult to injury, our police chief said no police report was made, so no action was taken. Let's watch the progress in the next few days.
I don't need to elaborate more. It has gained enough coverage. Rest assure that majority of Malaysians are mature enough to handle this with conscience, here.
The H1N1 case is growing in Malaysia and our government basically said "even Health Minister cannot guarantee your safety". I guess we have to "gi-gi-gu-gi-gi". A friend of mine sent me this email,
"Just mentioning this because when my daughter first came down with a very high temperature, we started calling hospitals. SJMC was full. Sunway Medical was also full. Pantai was ok but many in the waiting area. We decided to stay home so as not to be infected by who knows what in the waiting rooms. Or, infected by the doctors and nurses. But having hospitals that are overfilled is a bit worrying, no?"
We basically helpless. Nobody welcome ill people, especially H1N1 suspect. The death is growing everyday. Almost every single day we have 1 to 8 death.
A common sense is Give and Take. Nice. But I think most of us are actually Take and Give. In fact once we took, we may be giving. So it is not always giving after taking.
Let's see what you think about this. Try focus on Software and Knowledge as example.
