  1. I'm looking for a software solution that allows me to store information about clients of my service business such as personal details, contact details, related documents etc. It also needs export options (pdf documents or Excel spreadsheets) and backup options. Now instead of doing an unwieldy spreadsheet (Excel) and related folders of files, I would like something that is multi-user, hosted locally and has a beginner-friendly interface. Ideally it's completely free and open-source (I realize of course that this can't include any service). To that end, I have installed SuiteCRM on a local VM to test out, but I don't have the experience to know if it's right for my business/needs or if it's too feature-full and unnecessary. Your input would be appreciated.
  2. Wanna hear your opinions. Cos lately been thinking of changing cars. Now when I say I wanna change cars, I can buy a new one tomorrow or talk about it for the next ten years without buying. You can reference my round the world trip that is 14 years in the making before I am finally going to do it. Anyway, I am wondering if I will be wasting the SE time by doing test drives on cars I might not buy. Or even visiting showrooms to talk to SE. Those of you who know where I work, I work near some car showrooms so I can drop there literally during lunch as it's a five to teh minutes walk only. Just wanna hear your views.

  4. Dear all, Just want to ask, are heavy vehicles (Buses, 14 footer lorries, Tipper Trucks, Prime Movers etc) allowed to turn right on the extreme right turning lane if there are 2 turning lanes? Means 1 right turning lane, and the lane beside is go straight + turn right? Thanks
  5. Dear all, In view of the increasing number of accidents at traffic-light junctions where vehicles have hit and killed crossing pedestrians, I will be writing to LTA to propose changing the right-turn signalling sequence at all traffic-light junctions with pedestrian crossings. Presently many traffic-light right-turn signalling works by allowing the pedestrians to cross the roads simultaneously as vehicles turn right across their paths. This method theoretically reduces the overall waiting time for everyone in the system because it allows right-turning motorists to utilise pockets of time to go-ahead whenever there are no crossing pedestrians. However, due to fatigue, carelessness, blind-spots and other reasons, there have been many instances of pedestrians getting run over by right-turning vehicles. Many of such accidents involve larger vehicles which, due to their size and larger blind-spots, are harder to control. I would like to propose that the right-turning signalling be changed at such junctions so that right-turning vehicles cannot proceed to do so until the traffic lights have turned red for the crossing pedestrians. While this cannot totally eradicate similar accidents that arise due to jay-walking pedestrians, it will likely reduce the overall accident rates given that most pedestrians do obey the traffic crossing signals. Through this petition I hope LTA will treat this issue with greater urgency and have it implemented sooner than later before more innocent lives are lost. If you support this initiative, please indicate your user name below and I will update this first post: a. OmOm b. I will send out the petition to LTA once we achieve at least 50 (do suggest if you think this number could be smaller or larger) on this list. Thanks to all for your help!
  6. Hello. I am on Sony head unit and speakers, JBL amp and subwoofer. Recently when driving sound on right side would go out suddenly. It can be resolved by cranking up the volume very high and back down to normal volume again. However the sound on right may go out again, randomly, on the right side after that. What may be spoilt? Fuse? or is it a spoiling head unit? Thanks
  7. From ST Forum: Get speed limits right Published on Feb 28, 2014 I HOPE the Land Transport Authority will consider reviewing the speed limits on our roads, such that they truly reflect actual travelling speeds. On several roads, the speed limits may be set too low, resulting in motorists being fined for driving at speeds that are probably safe. For example, Lentor Avenue has a speed limit of 70kmh. Driving along this stretch at this speed during non-peak hours, I was overtaken by every vehicle on the road, including a bus. My understanding of the speed limit is that it represents the maximum speed at which a vehicle may travel safely along a certain road. However, this does not seem to be the case on our roads. Along certain long stretches without traffic lights, such as Thomson Road and Lornie Road, vehicles are cruising at average speeds of about 10kmh to 20kmh above the limit. While speeding kills, there is a difference between driving at more than 100kmh and at 80kmh. Along certain roads, motorists need to peer constantly at their speedometers to keep within the speed limits, for fear of being caught by a speed camera or speed trap set up by the Traffic Police. A recent road trip in Tasmania made me realise how the speed limits there accurately reflect travelling speeds. At hairpin bends, the limits drop to as low as 30kmh to 40kmh. Along straight stretches outside the town area, the limits increase to reasonable levels like 80kmh. I learnt to respect the limits, especially the lower ones as they meant the road ahead was hazardous. It is time to get our limits right.

  8. Usually 3 lanes turn right to 3/4/5 lanes will have dotted lines so can follow, but 2 lanes turn right to 2/3 lanes seldom there's dotted lines. Most of the time, if I'm the first car, I use the "waiting to turn right area" to gauge imaginary dotted lines to which lanes it's heading towards, then just zoom off when I can, to avoid any incidents. If there are a lots of car, I'll just follow the cars in front.. some times most right lanes turn right to lane 1, sometimes they turn to lane 2. But which is the correct one? -- Initially I thought that's what a user-submitted video is complaining, then I'm wondering if the taxi did turn to the wrong lane, but after watching multiple times, he's complaining about how the taxi cuts into the first lane as it turns. The video also shows an instance of 2 lanes right turn to 3 lanes.
  9. Hello All... Would like to ask if anyone know what could be the problem if some vibrating sound occur when turning right? Am driving a 8 years old Lancer GLX now. Thanks!
  10. My right side mirror was damaged. Cannot fold also. Left Right Up Down no problem. Toyota altis registered 2008 Anybody know where to replace / repair and cost? Thanks!
  11. As picture. Car A is turn left on solid green. Car B is doing U turn and hit the middle of the car. If claim insurance, which car should pay for the bill? Kindly please advice How comes LTA design the signal to let the u-turn and left turn to come to same direction? very dangerous! It's the junction of AMK AVE 3 and 8, green left turn into AVE 3

  13. I was thinking that whether if you have just crossed the last blinking arrow for right turning is it considered as beating red light? Example in this video: https://youtu.be/hMc8PpwV2gM This area has no red light camera, however I'm curious and I want to clear my doubt. Usually when you guys see blinking arrow, would you all still turn?
  14. VIDEO FROM FACEBOOK. NOT ME. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152171116234702&set=vb.662289701&type=2&theater "SFX1034Z tried to ran me off the lane into the road divider today. Didn't even give me time to slow down, had to jam brakes before he hits my side box. Just keep coming rather than move back. Bloody idiot."
  15. Photo shows police handcuffing a boy. Probably around 8 or 9. Should children that young be handcuffed? Police clarified that it was a case of theft and he was trying to run away. Still, was that necessary? Will he be traumatized at such a young age? What do you think?
  16. (Please remove the article if this is a repeat in the forum) Those who held high hopes of a meaningful change to the car ownership landscape, when the Government announced six months ago that it was looking to make the COE system fairer, have the right to be disappointed. After months of deliberation and public consultation, the only change introduced (with effect from February 2014) was a power cap for Category A. In addition to the existing engine displacement limit (up to 1600cc), cars in said category must not produce more than 130bhp. All other proposals, such as a surcharge to discourage multiple-car ownership (which would have resulted in a wider spread of “entitlement” among the population), were thrown into the waste bin. The Government says they are too hard to implement and enforce. In fact, this “too hard to do” reason is used to dismiss a proposal to ban motor traders from COE bidding. It is also used to explain why OMV (open market value) isn’t used to categorise COEs. Using engine power as a proxy to value is “simpler” and “easier”, according to the authorities. A proposal for a pay-as-you-bid system was also rejected. No move was made to address the feast-and-famine COE supply pattern, either. And despite a clear need to address an anomaly in the commercial vehicle category (heavy vehicle bidders outbidding light vehicle bidders and driving premiums to record level after record level), nothing was done. It is a sad day that “too hard to do” becomes a blanket excuse for not taking an issue by the horns. It is also downright tragic for a nation that had defied great odds to become what it is today, to succumb to a “can’t do” mentality when faced with a relatively straightforward issue such as COE. It is sadder still that the only change 
the Government decided to implement will not be as successful as it hopes it to be. Dealerships will bring in models that meet the power limit, including Mercedes- Benz, BMW and Volvo. Many will resort to diesel engines, which typically have low power ratings but high torque values. And as technology progresses, mass-market brands such as Toyota and
 Hyundai will roll out high-
powered models. Then what? What about the other
suggested changes? Well, most
 of them can be implemented. 
If, for instance, a surcharge
on subsequent cars is deemed 
the right policy to pursue, we
 should just pursue it – levy the
 surcharge by owner’s name, perhaps. There will, of course,
 be “leakage”, where buyers
 buy cars in their relatives’ or 
friends’ names. But not many people would be willing to be used in this manner – not without monetary incentive, anyway. 
And if people are caught by passing the surcharge this way, penalise them heavily. Register the car in a company’s name, you say? Well, just disallow that, and bring back the company registration plate, which used to attract higher levies. At the end of the day, the surcharge initiative is doable. All it takes is conviction. If it is the right thing to do, do it. If it isn’t the right policy, say so and explain why. Saying it is “too hard to do” smacks of defeatism. The same goes for the other proposals, such as banning motor traders from COE bidding. Yes, it is true that most car buyers have come to rely on car dealers for every little transaction. But if the law says they have to do their own bidding, they will learn to do so – just as they learnt how to apply for a HDB flat. Allowing motor traders
 to bid means allowing them to “game the system”. It is common practice for firms to lock-in buyers with attractive prices, and persuade them to “top up” when they continually fail to secure a COE. Sure, consumers can walk away after six unsuccessful bids. But by then, prices elsewhere would have risen, too. They face a lose-lose situation by walking away. Therefore, many will agree to “top up”. Big players have also been able to move the market, by the sheer number of bids they submit (or do not submit).
 A company can chase up premiums for five tenders, and then trigger a correction by withholding bids in the sixth. And because they have a pretty good idea how much premiums are likely to fall by, they set their COE rebate levels accordingly. More often than not, motor firms get to gain from a premium correction, and their customers only get a refund on the portion that is below the rebate level. Our Government also says that in a pay-as-you-bid format, consumers do not pay the quota premium they are willing to pay. The logic is hard to follow. In the first place, the premium that bidders are most willing to pay must be zero. But because they are conditioned to accept a certain premium over a certain period of time, they pay what the market wills them to pay. For instance, when COEs rose steadily from around $20,000 five years ago to $70,000 in recent months, the buying has not stopped. Not because consumers are as “willing” to pay $70,000 as $20,000, but because they have no choice. The notion of willingness to pay is an economic one. It does not always apply in real life – certainly not for something that is intrinsically worthless, such as a certificate of entitlement. But we know, it is hard to ban motor traders from bidding. Just as it is
 hard to tell the rich who have more than one car (who make up one in five car-owning households) that they will have to pay more. Indeed, the right things are always the hardest to do This article was written by Christopher Tan, consulting editor for Torque.

  20. May I know why some drivers only like to filter in near the end of the filter lane when doing these turns? traffic condition is normal and is not like they are doing a last min switch also. For U-turns at those non traffic light junctions for example, they like to do this stunt with their vehicle body still at the centre of the filter line right at the turn, which will therefore cause obstruction to vehicles behind that are going straight on that fast lane, sometimes have to jam brake if they never siginal their intention. Issit for easier turning? but the opposite direction is a 3 or 4 lanes road, even a big lorry can do the u-turn with their whole vehicle body inside the filter lane

    MY Lost Right To Review Water Price

    yahoo report : Malaysia has lost right to review water price, says Singapore Minister – Bernama When Malaysia decided not to review the water price under the Water Agreement in 1987, it lost its right to review the price, says Singapore Minister for Foreign Affairs K. Shanmugam. "Singapore’s position is that Malaysia has lost its right to review the water price. The Water Agreement provided for the review after 25 years. Specifically, there was a right to review the price of water jointly in 1987. "However, Malaysia consciously chose not to review the price. It had good reasons for this," he said this in reply to a Parliamentary question today. Ellen Lee of Sembawang GRC, had asked the minister whether Malaysia had the right to review the price of raw water sold to Singapore under the bilateral water agreement at any time before its expiry in 2061. Shanmugam said Singapore had stated its position on the issue and also conveyed it officially to the Malaysian Government on several occasions. "Our position on this issue is well-known to Malaysia. We have stated this publicly, and also conveyed it to the Malaysian Government, including at the highest levels. The Malaysian Government understands the position," he said. He quoted Malaysia's Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman as saying on February 17, this year: “An agreement is an agreement. When there is an agreement, we will honour the agreement. "If there is any need for review, we will forward it and if their response is positive, we will start talking." Shanmugam said that had Malaysia exercised the right to review the water price in 1987, Singapore might then have made different investment decisions to develop the Johor River, for instance the Linggiu Dam project of 1990. In the event, he said Malaysia chose not to review the water price in 1987, and on that basis, Singapore then took several actions, which also benefitted Malaysia. He said this included building the Linggiu Dam at a cost of over S$300 million (RM773 million), which increased the yield of the Johor River and enabled both Johor and Singapore to draw water from it during the dry season. Indeed, neither party can unilaterally change any of the terms of the 1962 Water Agreement. Shanmugam said Malaysia benefitted greatly from the current pricing arrangement. "We enjoy good relations with Malaysia at all levels. We will continue to work to enhance our cooperation and friendship with Malaysia, in order to benefit both our peoples," he added. – Bernama, March 6, 2014. link: http://sg.news.yahoo.com/malaysia-lost-review-water-price-says-singapore-minister-161152546.html We build a S$300 million dam for MY ...
