Ada satu kelas, computer security, kelas ni la satu2nye yang aku rasa nyesal tak gi awal2 dulu, sebab dia taknah amek attendance. Dr azween yang aja. Sebab sejak aku attend kelas dia, apa yg dia aja tuh mmg rasa interesting gile ah, sbb dia tak ikut buku sangat. Bukan la dia merepek, tapi dia aja CS tuh practical sangat, sume subjek lain ajar teori, teori dan teori lagi, sbb tu la aku rasa dia nih special. Prektikel dia sampai akar umbi, aku yg slo nih pun paham jadinye.
Dr azween nih lelaki, bkn pompuan ye! Bukan ape, aritu aku cite sal dia kat belle, dah abis cite baru belle tau dr azween nih laki. He he. Kadang2 aku tengok lecturer aku nih lembut sket body language dia, tapi cara dia cakap cam laki ah. So one day tuh, dia cite samting:
"I am a good programmer, really. Back in the 80's, I was studying in US, they didn't like to do programming you know, so they will pay the Asians especially, to do the programming for them. They just want to graduate. So they pay like 500 dollars to me. Which is not much at that time." Whattt?? 500 tak banyak in the 80s?? Skang pon banyak daaaa!
"So, after that I graduated, then I got to work with NASA, the real NASA. Actually that time they have some policy, they didn't hire the non-americans to work for them, in such 'sensitive' organization, but somehow I managed to get through. That time, 1982, they still don't have the concept of security, either system security or source code security. So, I worked with the other programmers. We did the program to send people to the Mars, NOT the moon, the Mars. We wrote millions of lines of code, and finally finished it. And all of us got to see the woman whom we want to send to Mars, through the glass, before she departed." Keje ngan NASA?? Gile ah! Time tuh aku dah stat terbayang scene lam 'Leaving on a Jetplane' dah, cite Armageddon tuh heh heh.
"Just a few seconds after she departed, it suddenly exploded, killing 5 of our people including that woman. It was so frustrated, to all of the programmers, to all the people in the team... I saw that woman just before that you know, saw her waving to her children, it was so heartbreaking. I was responsible, partly responsible for her death... Just because of the program we wrote. Later, we found out that the cause of the explosion was an extra of 0.05mg(@%) of hydrogen injected to the combustion engine of the rocket. Since that time, I knew I have to be somebody. I was a good programmer, but still the woman died. I must be very good, and I want to teach people so that they won't do the same mistake I did. And that's why I became a lecturer.", dr azween kasik penutup cite dia. Ishk. Giller ah.
Please take note, ada certain perkataan yg dia gune tuh aku tak berapa hengat, maka aku gune perkataan yg paling dekat ah. Pastuh, pasal hydrogen tuh, ada skali dia sebut 0.05 mg, skali lagi dia sebut 0.05%, sbb tuh aku pun tak sure btol2 unit dia hape.
Tu la cite dia. Patutla kekadang tengok muke dr azween cam menyembunyikan suatu masalah yg berat je. Cewah. Tapi tu la, tak sangka gile. Ishk2. Kalo tak silap, dr azween cakap this sem adalah sem terakhir yg offer CS. So malanglah bagi junior2 aku ehhe. Pasnih maybe dia aja algo & data structure. Aritu dr azween cakap nak buat satu klas aja hacking sket, tapi tah la cam tak jadi lak.
Skian cite hari ini! Mari minum soya yeos with 20% extra nyum nyum! Ohh! Berat menten dan takmo turun2 dah!! Incik sayang cakap, dah sampai berat ideal kot?Aummm kene eksesais dah pasnih! Ngeeee!
