Trouble Shooting MS Office: “No Access Privileges”

Dear readers, hopefully this tip can help you too Smile

Some time back I could not open a Word file. I can’t remember the exact error message.
All I remember is it was because I types some math equation in it.
The next day, I could not open it.
Of course, I google-d the solution and tried different tips the forums suggested.
However, the solution turned out to be quite simple: get the latest update from Windows.
Or, you can find the link here:

Recently, I have been having trouble with opening Word file due to access privileges.
Funny. This is my own laptop.
After trying this and that advice in forums, it turns out that the solution is as follows:

1.) Right click the file. Go to Properties.
2.) Under Security tab, choose Edit.
3.) Click Add then Advanced.
4.) Under “Select Users or Groups” window, click Find Now
5.) Under “Search Results”, choose “Everyone” then OK.
6.) Then OK again.
7.) Check “Allow” and “Full Control” box.
8.) Then Apply, OK then OK again.

Mine is Vista. Hopefully it works with other Windows too.

Thought of the Day: Quick Judgment + Abortion due to Anomaly

Very often, we are pretty quick in judging others.
Using what we see at that moment or what we hear, we quickly charge others of doing wrong.
The danger is, like what I wrote earlier, the conclusion can be wrong due to partial story.
This video is a good example to it.
A very good message: Don’t judge quickly. We won’t

Some time back, I read a news on Straits Times about a pregnant mother who decided to terminate her pregnancy.
Apparently, the baby had no skull, a condition known as anencephaly.
You can read the story here:

http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/Singapore/Story/STIStory_811908.html

A thought popped up in my mind: what would I do if I were that pregnant woman?
Would I continue until full term pregnancy? Or, would I abort that baby?

It is a tough decision. But I guess, I would still carry it on.
The reason is because God can still do a miracle. Who knows a few weeks later the skull comes up?
After all, God created life in the beginning. It will be a snap for Him to just create a skull.
But if God decides, in His sovereignty, that the baby should pass away, then I would let the baby pass away naturally in my womb.
(Technically speaking, I would then need to go through daily check up as I would not to take too long to have the passed away baby out of my womb).

Just a tentative thought.
At the moment, it is not the issue of right and wrong.
Again, it is a tough decision, after all.

There is Always Side Story to Evidence And Fact

A conversation with a member of academia.

Academia: Your church is in the news.
Jefri: Yeah, I know.
Academia: They found the evidence.
Jefri: Fact is not fact by itself. It depends on how one interprets it. There is always side story.
Academia: If you kill someone, that means you kill someone. The dead body is there.
Jefri: If I say he tries to kill me first?
Academia: Ah, self defense.
Jefri: Yup.
Academia: You will make a good lawyer.

It is well known that in the court, both the defense and prosecutors may use the same evidence.
However, they interpret it differently using different framework. And eventually, they arrive at totally different conclusion!
Another clearer example is creationist vs evolutionist. Both scientists use the same evidence but they end up with opposing conclusion.

In addition to that, there is always side story.
That is why it is important to listen to both parties to make sound and unbiased judgment.
After all, there is always possibility to access only partial information, both to prosecutor and defense.
Hence, with both parties speaking, the complete picture can be formed.

Just like what the Bible teaches:
”The first one to plead his cause seems right, until his neighbor comes and examines him.” (Proverb 18:17)

Rain oh Rain

A short post for today.
Finally this morning rain came to NTU area.
It had been very hot recently.
Due to lack of sleep and weather change, somehow my lips become dry and my head aching.
Apparently, a lab colleague is feeling slightly unwell too.
Hmm, no good. Should take care of myself.

Pastor Kevin Gerald’s Sermon 24, June, 2012

Forces that Form Your Future.
Pastor Kevin taught us a few things we should take note of in order to shape our future.
For instance, our present life would be different if our relationship, sowing, thought and belief had been different.
Hence, our future is determined by our present thought and action.

Pastor Kevin taught three examples of forces in order to form a great future.

1.) Force of Belief
We might have the right intention but with the wrong belief… and the result might be bad.
For instance, one might be the recipient of Nobel Prize in Peace.
Yet, if he absolutely believe that  red traffic light means go and green traffic light means stop, he might endanger himself and others.
Belief is one of the cores of life.
If our belief is wrong, for instance if we believe God is so distant, then we will have miserable life.
On the other hand, if our belief is right, then we will have fantastic life.
And this is the right belief: God cares every single detail in our life and He really loves us.

2.) Force of Habit
There is an organ in our brain which records our activity and helps us repeat the same thing again and again.
Thank God for it as we can just drive cars without even thinking too much.
Cultivating a good habit ensures a great future.
A champion has a champion’s habit.

3.) Force of Dream
Dream is a faith picture.
Joshua and Caleb kept holding on their dream: to enter into Promised Land.
No matter how difficult the circumstance is, we should keep holding on our dream.
In fact, City Harvest itself was birthed out of Pastor Kong’s dream.

As for me, I once thought of God as a distant God due to plenty disappointment experience.
Nevertheless, now I feel so close to Him.
There is this dream of mine which is yet to come to pass. I believe God will make it happen Smile

Interesting sermon, isn’t it? Get a copy of it in The Ink Room today Smile

The Ink Room Duty 23, June, 2012

Yup, a lot of happenings yesterday. We were busy but happy too.
Pastor Kevin Gerald came to preach to the church for the very first time. He brought some products with him.

230620124465230620124463230620124464230620124462

There are 3 book titles: Forces That Form Your Future, Pardon Me, I’m Prospering and Mind Monsters.
He preached from his book Forces That Form Your Future. I will give a bit summary of his sermon in the next post.
It turned out that the members swept through his products.
The queue at the cashier was pretty long (Praise the Lord!) and I became one of the queue marshals.
Thank God for the breakthrough sales!
Well, some church members were not happy as they could not get hold of his book.
Hopefully the bookstore can bring in more of his products next time.

Audrey jie treated us doughnuts! Thanks a lot, jie! May God bless your sowing and may you reap abundantly!
(Just like Dr. Robb Thompson wrote in his book, “You may not reap where you sow, but you will definitely reap what you sow.”)

Dinner at Koufu Changi City Point. The food court closed at 10 pm so we did not have many choices.
Hmm, that means the bookstore should end the business earlier… perhaps?
