Older Version
An ant worked hard in the sweltering heat all summer, building its nest and
laying up supplies for the winter.

A grasshopper thought the ant was stupid not knowing how to enjoy life. It
spent its days laughing, singing & dancing thoroughly enjoying the summer.

Came winter, the ant was warm, comfortable and had no shortage of food.

The grasshopper had no proper shelter, no stored food, and couldn’t find
anything to eat from the snow-covered ground. So it died and the story
ended.
MORAL OF TH E STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

Modern Version

An ant worked hard in the sweltering heat all summer, building its nest and
laying up supplies for the winter.

A grasshopper thought the ant was stupid not knowing how to enjoy life. It
spent its days laughing, singing & dancing thoroughly enjoying the summer.

Came winter, the shivering grasshopper called a press conference and
demanded to know why the ant should be warm and well fed while he was cold
and starving.

TV1, TV2 & TV3 showed up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper
alongside to a video clip of the ant in his comfortable home with a table
full of food.

The majority of the Malaysian Parliamentarians were stunned by the sharp
contrast. How could this poor grasshopper be allowed to suffer?

Khairy staged a demonstration in front of the ant’s nest.

Nazri went on a hunger strike along with other grasshoppers demanding that
they be relocated to warmer climate area during winter.

The Malaysia Government immediately passed a law forbidding all ants from
working hard in the summer so as to bring about equality of poverty between
ants and grasshoppers.

Hishammudin increased ‘More Special Reservations’ for grasshoppers in E
ducational Institutions & in Government Services..

The ant was fined for failing to share 30% of his food with the grasshopper.
The Prime Minister announced that this was part of the N E P. No ant should
question it. (Don’t forget, Tax Audits were introduced and targeted at
certain individuals who were eventually penalised heavily for not
contibuting enough to the well-being of the grasshoppers).

Many years later…

Some ant migrated to the US and set up multi-billion dollar companies there.

Hundreds of grasshoppers still died of starvation despite the ‘More Special
Reservations’.

Losing significant number of hard working ants and free loading the
grasshoppers, Malaysia remained a developing country, despite its abundant
natural resources.
All because the remaining ANTS were still doing their work
………………………..

Latest finding showed that almost all the grasshoppers in the political
arena and civil service were hoarding corrupt wealth which they refused to
share with fellow grasshoppers.

MORAL OF TH E STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2011.

I’ve sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant – not a
grasshopper! Make sure that you pass this on to other ants. Don’t bother
sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn’t understand it,
anyway.

I get the story above from an email sent by a friend. Not created by me.

Put this in your blog:

<script src=”http://www.ubuntu.com/files/countdown/display2.js” type=”text/javascript”> </script>

You will see this:

I tried the beta version. Here are the problems I found:

1. GRUB 2 issue – unable to find OS in my external harddisk when I save the bootloader in sdb1

2. Empathy unable to create any chat or facebook account – no reply from remote server. Solved by deleting the default keyring password. Refer to http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1331240.html

Hope these problems will be solved in the full 10.04 LTS version.
