We need to protect senior management from blame.

thousands-of-singaporeans

Thousands of ordinary Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe it is good to take the blame because that is a core tenet of responsibility, have owned up and taken responsibility for the Singtel broadband Internet outage.

This after no one in authority has taken responsibility for the downing of the Internet in Singapore on Dec. 3 that left hundreds of thousands of people stranded with no cyberspace to enter.

One Singaporean citizen, Guai Wo, said: “It is a matter of national duty. I am just doing my part for Singaporean society and for my leaders, especially senior management.”

“I take full responsibility for the Singtel broadband Internet outage. Singaporeans can point their fingers at me and say that it is my fault as no one in authority has come out to take the blame.”

However, other locals said this will not resolve the issue.

Another local, Siow Pah, said: “It is not enough for thousands of ordinary Singaporeans to take the blame.”

“We need to blame one another who is not in authority. This is a result of natural aristocracy.”

At press time, Singaporeans remembered that there is no such thing as a blame culture in Singapore anymore and this episode is part of a learn culture.

Thousands of Singaporeans to be awarded medal of bravery next National Day.

Hundreds of thousands of Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are brave, civic-minded and united as one people, have been commended for their bravery.

This after they stood up heroically and with grace in the face of a national collapse of the Internet on Dec. 3, 2016.

One Singaporean security expert, An Quan, said: “Singaporeans deserve to be praised. When the Internet went down, none of them took to the streets to protest and throw rocks as everyone waited things out.”

“This is a hallmark of a mature society willing and able to withstand the collapse of the very structures that make society tick.”

Other locals said they could have gone on a justified rampage, but didn’t.

Another local, Hum Ji, said: “What I saw on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016, was Singaporeans holding on to Singaporeans and counting on one another to tide through a national crisis.”

“In the face of such a catastrophe, it is heartening to see Singaporeans weather the storm and come out even stronger than before.”

“That’s why it is our recommendation they get the next two months of their bills waived off.”

Passed away.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believed their First World infrastructure is supposedly superior, have gathered at their favourite free speech corner for a candlelight vigil to mark the passing of the Singtel broadband Internet on Dec. 3.

This after the broadband Internet service’s sudden demise left a few million inhabitants in Singapore high and dry.

One Singaporean, Dian La Zu, said she would like to remember the quickness of fibre broadband by: “When it was actually functioning properly, it can be quite fast the download speeds.”

“But that’s not all the time. There will be a lag when the whole block of flats is tapping on the same network.”

“However, we’re all here today because it really died young.”

Other locals said they have taken out full-colour obituary pages in the local newspapers to mark Dec. 3 as the day the trajectory of Singapore changed course.

Another local, Huan Fang Xiang, said: “After years of social studies and Total Defence messaging, it did not occur to me when people said the social fabric of Singapore is delicate and can be broken at the seams overnight.”

“Dec. 3, 2016, has made me understand and appreciate what it means for society to fall apart and go under just like that.”

At press time, Singaporeans said they will need another 50 years to rebuild.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who relied on broadband Internet WiFi, lined up along the streets to bid their final farewell.

This after the Singtel broadband Internet succumbed to a sudden death as it passed away without warning on Dec. 3, 2016, and was given a state funeral.

One Singaporean, Shang Xing, said: “As citizens, we recognise the contributions of the broadband Internet in the everyday lives of Singaporeans.”

“It made a difference. It will be dearly missed.”

Other locals said giving Singtel broadband Internet a state funeral is appropriate.

Another local, Gong Ping, said: “At least we all recognise and can agree on the extent of the contribution of broadband Internet to the lives of everyday Singaporeans.”

“Can’t say the same for some others.”

Singaporeans from some walks of life, who believed in the Third World to First World narrative wholeheartedly, are quietly wiping away tears of betrayal from their eyes.

This after the Singtel broadband Internet passed away on Saturday, Dec. 3, which effectively sets Singapore back to Second World country.

Flags around Singapore will fly at half-mast on Sunday to mark the passing of the Internet in Singapore as a day of national mourning is declared.

One Singaporean, Yong Dian Nao, said: “The passing of the Internet in Singapore was totally unexpected. It was so young.”

“This is the saddest day in Singapore’s history.”

“I hope future generations can look back on Dec. 3, 2016, as the defining moment in Singapore’s short history, where our country started to cease being one.”

Other locals have also begun to earmark certain locations in Singapore to build a memorial for the late broadband Internet.

At press time, a few locations brought up include the Istana grounds and along Oxley Road.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in their own god from their own respective religion, are holding hands, bowing their heads and closing their eyes together as one to pray for Singtel CEO Chua Sock Koong.

This after Singtel fibre broadband Internet service in Singapore broke down for more than 24 hours on Saturday, Dec. 3 to Sunday, Dec. 4, sparking talk that the fallout from subscribers is going to be epic.

One Singaporean, Qi Dao, said: “I think the Singtel CEO bathe flower water for three years straight also might not help.”

“Hope she can burn more incense and donate money to places of worship to reserve the impact of this incident.”

However, other locals said there are learning points to be had from this episode.

Another local, Zuan Yi Chuen, said: “Maybe this is karma.”

 

 

 

 

 

 





Condolences from rest of the world pour in to S’pore after Singtel Internet passed away

Not sure how long it will take for Singapore to rebuild.

singtel-condolences

Hundreds of countries around the world, that provide for citizens of all nationalities from all walks of life, have sent their condolences to Singapore.

This after it was announced that the Singtel broadband Internet passed away suddenly on Dec. 3, 2016.

The devastating effects of the void left behind by Singtel broadband Internet’s passing is expected to be felt by the next several generations of Singaporeans.

The United Nations is expected to call an emergency meeting to help Singapore deal with the fallout from this sudden demise of the Internet in a country that prides itself for having First World infrastructure.

Surrounding countries in the Southeast Asia region are also gearing up for an influx of refugees expected to hit their coastlines, as the dense population in Singapore are evacuating by sea and over land, in search of a better WiFi signal.

Countries likely to absorb the massive outflow of refugees include Malaysia and Batam.

Emergency rations from around the world have been deployed to help the island republic avert a humanitarian crisis of a scale not seen in the last 50 years, during a time when there was really no such thing as the Internet.

Aid workers worldwide are worried the situation might deteriorate further and are expediting the process for refugees to be granted asylum status.

A spokesperson for the Unicef peacekeeping force, re-iterated it is not entirely up to the regional neighbours to absorb Singaporeans who are fleeing.

Er Sai Lam, a former peacekeeper who has toured Afghanistan and Iraq, said: “It is up to the digital natives in Singapore to adapt to the conditions of the surrounding countries.”

“As new immigrants, some of these Singaporeans would have to give up their past accounts and re-look into how to build up a following on new social media platforms.”

“For example, surrounding countries might not have broadband speeds that are as fast as Singapore’s, which will rule out rampant Snapchat usage.”

“Social media platforms such as Instagram, which are photo heavy, might not work as well.”

“Singaporeans might need to become more text-reliant instead and get used to many of the unheard of social media platforms favoured by natives in the region.”

“They would also have to compete head-on to acquire a following that easily dwarfs the type of following they can get in Singapore.”

“50,000 followers might be a big thing in Singapore, but we’re looking at two to three million followers in places such as Indonesia and Thailand.”

A Singtel engineer has single-handedly resolved the the broadband Internet outage in Singapore.

This after he went into the backroom to turn off and on the main CPU, giving this method a shot after all else has failed and was surprised that it worked.

The engineer, Xiu Li, said: “I was thinking initially that this advice would not work because it is the standard advice helplines always provide.”

“Little did I know that it did.”

“To think we spent 24 hours troubleshooting.”

At press time, the engineer was informed he would get one extra day off as a reward for stopping what is the biggest Internet down time in the history of Singapore and the world caused by a single service provider.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are mourning the passing of broadband Internet in Singapore, saw Lee Kuan Yew shaking his head repeatedly when he appeared in the sky over the Singtel building in Somerset.

This after the Singtel broadband Internet passed away on Dec. 3, 2016, for no reason and pushed Singapore from First World to Second World in a matter of hours.

One Singaporean, Yao Tou, said she saw and heard Lee Kuan Yew saying he felt very disappointed at this turn of events when he is no longer around to personally see to matters: “I heard this loud booming voice say, ‘Singtel building so near Oxley Road some more’.”

“And then he said, ‘Look at all these buildings in the Singapore skyline. If I had to take one whole day just to diagnose and fix the Internet, I would have only managed to build the Istana, Plaza Singapura and the zoo in 50 years.”

Other locals said the apparition of Lee Kuan Yew in the sky was a good reminder that Singapore still has a lot to achieve.

Another local, Wan Dan, said: “I have never heard of the Internet not working under Lee Kuan Yew’s watch.”

“I believe this national Internet outage is Lee Kuan Yew’s omen. This is his way of telling Singaporeans something.”

“These warnings could be in response to unresolved issues in Singapore that Lee Kuan Yew would like to attend to.”

“Omens will carry on unabated until his 38 Oxley Road house is demolished just as he had wished.”

“If his will is to be defied anymore, I think it is more than just the Internet being affected next time.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can see solutions to problems easily, are applauding the suggestions for rescue efforts to salvage a precarious situation.

This after the Singtel broadband Internet passed away on Dec. 3, 2016, and attempts are being made to revive it, with cross-industry expertise coming into play, such as using cable ties to solve the problem.

One Singaporean, Gao Zhao, said this move is not the first time something like this has been done: “We might imagine that this is a critical situation and this is a technological problem, but we must remember this is not the first time a problem of grave magnitude has happened in Singapore and cable ties were the solution.”

“Previously, cable ties were used to hold critical infrastructure together to make it last for as long as it can last.”

“Look where that got us? Yes, breakdowns every other day, but overall, still functional 90 percent of the time.”

Other locals said they feel safe knowing action is being taken swiftly.

An Quan, another local, said: “Sometimes it is not how well the salvage operation is carried out but how quick it is being rectified.”

“If cable ties worked previously, I don’t see how they shouldn’t hold up now and solve a tech problem.”

“Most problems are physical, material problems anyway.”
