How Can There Be A Today Without A Yesterday?

Time as a blog topic is interesting for everyone.  Yesterday, today, tomorrow is a time in motion moving forward as day to night, night to day.  Just as our lives for the past, present and future.  Without hope, there is no tomorrow for the future to look forward to.

How can there be a today without a yesterday?

Today is the tomorrow yesterday and we live everyday with hope for us and future generations.


The best of the times for the youth to learn from experiences and to share and learn to discover a life worthwhile.  We live only once ...  not as in the old James Bond movie, "You Only Live Twice"!

As I work on my home computer using Microsoft Internet Explorer XP, I know that I am somewhat outdated because the latest version is Internet Explorer 8.  However, I don't need speed to play online games and its fine for me.

Over the decades, Internet and computer technology has made rapid changes by leaps and bounds.  Its awesome!


Anyone remembers Windows 95 midnight launch at Funan Centre on August 24, 1995 to share our memories?

 
Windows 95 is the "Grandfather of the Windows operating system" while  Bill Gates is the "Founding Father of Microsoft". 

Windows 95 is a consumer-oriented graphical user interface-based operating system. It was released on August 24, 1995 by Microsoft, and was a significant progression from the company's previous version of Windows 3.1, most notably in the graphical user interface (GUI) and in its relatively simplified "plug-n-play" features.

My former neighbour, Chua Eng Kiat and I went to Funan Centre in his car at about 11:00 pm.  There was a long queue at the lobby and at the strike of midnight, the Windows 95 was launched.  The big crowd of Windows users were excited and anxious to grab the latest Microsoft operating system software at special discount.

Eng Kiat and I immediately installed Windows 95 on our computers when we reached home around 3:00 am



It was a long, learning journey and experience and as we say it, the rest is history ...

Anyone remember the GEM GUI from the late 1980s. It came 5.25-inch floppies.
