How to impress a client

I was in the airport VIP lounge en route to Seattle a couple of weeks ago.

While in there, I noticed Bill Gates sitting comfortably in the corner, enjoying a drink.
I was meeting a very important client who was also flying to Seattle, but she was running a little bit late.

Well, being a straightforward kind of guy, I approached the Microsoft chairman, introduced myself, and said, "Mr. Gates, I wonder if you would do me a favor."
"I'm sitting right over there," pointing to my seat at the bar, and I' m waiting for a very important client. Would you be so kind when she arrives as to come walk by and just say "Hi Tom?"

I shook his hand and thanked him and went back to my seat.

About ten minutes later, my client showed up. We ordered a drink and started to talk business.
A couple of minutes later, I felt a tap on my shoulder.

It Was Bill Gates. "Hi, Tom," he said.
I replied, "Shut up, Bill, I'm in a meeting."

Conditional Tutorial

There are two kinds of conditional sentences: real and unreal. Real Conditional describes real-life situations. Unreal Conditional describes unreal, imaginary situations. Although the various conditional forms might seem quite abstract at first, they are actually some of the most useful structures in English and are commonly included in daily conversations. If you prefer to use the conditional pages as a reference only and do not want to complete the tutorial.

What do u know about PC?

A personal computer (PC) is any computer whose original sales price, size, and capabilities make it useful for individuals, and which is intended to be operated directly by an end user, with no intervening computer operator.
Today a PC may be a desktop computer, a laptop computer or a tablet computer. The most common operating systems are Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, while the most common microprocessors are x86 compatible CPUs. Software applications for personal computers include word processing, spreadsheets, Database, games, and a myriad of personal productivity and special-purpose software. Modern personal computers often have high-speed or dial-up connections to the Internet, allowing access to the World Wide Web and a wide range of other resources.
A PC may be a home computer, or may be found in an office, often connected to a local area network. The distinguishing characteristics are that the computer is primarily used, interactively, by one person at a time. This is in contrast to the batch processing or time-sharing models which allowed large expensive systems to be used by many people, usually at the same time, or large data processing systems which required a full-time staff to operate efficiently.
While early PC owners usually had to write their own programs to do anything useful with the machines, today's users have access to a wide range of commercial and non-commercial software which is easily installed.


The capabilities of the PC have changed greatly since the introduction of electronic computers. By the early 1970s, people in academic or research institutions had the opportunity for single-person use of a computer system in interactive mode for extended durations, although these systems would still have been too expensive to be owned by a single person. The introduction of the microprocessor, a single chip with all the circuitry that formerly occupied large cabinets, led to the proliferation of personal computers after about 1975. Early personal computers - generally called microcomputers - were sold often in kit form and in limited volumes, and were of interest mostly to hobbyists and technicians. By the late 1970s, mass-market pre-assembled computers allowed a wider range of people to use computers, focusing more on software applications and less on development of the processor hardware.
Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, home computers were developed for household use, offering personal productivity, programming and games. Somewhat larger and more expensive systems (although still low-cost compared with minicomputers and mainframes) were aimed for office and small business use. Workstations are characterized by high-performance processors and graphics displays, with large local disk storage, networking capability, and running under a multitasking operating system. Workstations are still used for tasks such as computer-aided design, drafting and modelling, computation-intensive scientific and engineering calculations, image processing, architectural modelling, and computer graphics for animation and motion picture visual effects.

At a Loss for Words?

Have you ever been stumped in finding the right words to search for? Back when I was planning my wedding, I had a list of wedding songs in mind, but the problem was that I couldn't remember any of the artist names or song titles. So I started typing into the Google search box parts of the lyrics that I did remember -- and like magic, I saw suggestions with the artist name and song titles that I wanted! (I was opted-in to the keyword suggestions Google Labs experiment at the time). At that moment, I was so proud to be working on Google Suggest, a search feature that provides real-time suggestions while you search.


Command, Request and Prohibition

Command and Request

Biasanya dalam bahasa kita menyuruh atau memerintah untuk berbuat sesuatu yang biasa disebut dengan kalimat Perintah/permintaan (Command and Request).
"Kata-kata" suruhan ituh ditambah dengan "lah" dan diakhiri dengan tanda seru (!)seumpama "Duduklah!" atau "Pergilah!".

Didalam bahasa Inggris, kata "lah" itu tidak ada. Jadi kalau kita hendak menyuruh seseorang berbuat sesuatu, hanya verb saja yang diletakkan di depan kalimat maka dengan sendirinya sudah bertambah arti "lah" dalam kalimat tersebut.

Come here! Artinya marilah ke sini!
Try to speak English! Artinya cobalah berbicara bahasa Inggris!
Study diligently! Artinya belajarlah dengan rajin!

Apabila kalimatnya bukan kata kerja (verb), maka pakailah "be" di depan kalimat karena be itu adalah verb. Tapi be ini tidak ada artinya/terjemahannya.

Misalnya :

Be good to her! Artinya baik-baiklah kepadanya!
Be diligent! Artinya Rajin-rajinlah!
Be careful! Artinya hati-hatilah!


Do not boleh dipendekkan jadi "don't" yang artinya "jangan" kalau dileatkkan di depan kalimat.

Do not come here! Artinya jangan datang kemari!
Don't look at it! Artinya jangan lihat itu!
Don't forget your lesson! Artinya jangan lupakan pelajaranmu itu!
Do not go there! Artinya jangan pergi ke sana!

Jadi jangan pake "good" saja atau "good good". Karena kalimat Command and Request ini tidak ada "verb"-nya, maka "be"-lah yang menjadi wakil "verb".


Don't be lazy! = Jangan malas!
Don't be stupid! = Jangan bodoh!
Don't be careless = Jangan lalai!
Don't be ashamed = Jangan malu!

Akan tetapi kalau sesudah be itu ada kata benda atau nama orang maka arti be itu adalah jadi/menjadi, misalnya:

Be a teacher! = Jadilah guru!
Be a president! = Jadilah presiden!
Don't be a corruptor! = Jangan jadi koruptor!
Don't be a traitor = Jangan jadi pengkhianat!
Be an honest man = Jadi orang jujurlah!
