Toh Principle

One day, my natural enemy, Mr. Toh, told me that based on his study and observation, he had concluded the following principle which named after his surname, Toh Principle:

When the ratio of sohai is drop below 1.5, the performance will drop

Before I explain the Toh Principle, I would like to clarify the meaning of sohai in this theory.

Sohai is defined as individual who is giving output without counting the return or input. These individuals are against the law of physics because most of the time the output over input is above 1. Therefore, it does not obey the conservation of energy.

Class, may I start to prove Toh Principle?

Ok, lets start.

Performance is defined as power, which is total works over time taken, therefore

Performance, P = Work (W) / Time (T)

From Pareto Principle, we know that 80% of the works is done by 20% individuals in an organization.

Let assume that, the ratio of sohai in an organization is x, and we substitute these informations into the formula.

P = W / T
= 80% works done by 20% individuals and the remaining 20% works done by the remaining 80% individual
80% of the 20% individuals' time and 20% of the 80% individuals' time

P = 0.8/0.2x + 0.2/0.8x
0.8*0.2x + 0.2*0.8x

P = (17/4x) / 0.32x
= 13.3/x^2

We know that there are seven days in a week, but due to that we all are human and we need rest, (even God rest on Sunday), therefore, the maximum working time we can have is 6 days per week.


6 = 13.3 / x^2
x = sqrt(13.3 / 6)
x = 1.5

Therefore, you need at least 1.5 ratio of sohai in an organization if you need to maintain the smoothness of a task. If the ratio is drop, more time is needed and causing delay in the completion of the task.

Hereby, Toh principle is proven to be truth and nothing but the truth.

My blog and me

When I start this blog, my intention is very simple, I want to share my thought with my friends and families, and at the same time, just want to practice my English. My girl complains my English, and I told my natural enemy, Mr. Toh, that my English is very bad and he said my English is suck. Well, please forgive a Chinese educated engineer’s writing. That is my limit and I am practicing, I hope one day I can at least write a lovely poem for my girl.

What I wrote most? I don’t really go to do the statistic. I believe, mostly are related to my works. I guess I’m a boring guy :). Initially there are some bloggers around me, but one by one they abandon their blog. Maybe they just lack of idea to write, or maybe they just can’t found the reason to continue their blog. Maybe too much pressure given by some individuals. Not everyone can accept critic, that what I’d learned.

So, what make me continue writing? Less and less reader is visiting this blog :) but I still continue writing. I don’t how I can last until today, it’s look like a miracle for me. My friend once told me that every blog must has a theme and because of theme, it’s become difficult to maintain, because once the idea exhausted, the blog will end. Maybe my blog don’t have any theme :).

My girl always receives the most firsthand information from my blog, because I always hope to share all my thought with her. I don’t really very good in talking and express my feeling, maybe I’m an engineer. My logic is dominant my emotion. Unfortunately, my English is also too poor to let my girl understand my thought. Sometime, she felts that I’m complaining this world. But I didn’t and I will not do that.

Just like having dinner in a restaurant, if I felt that the soup is not nice, I will said the soup is not nice, but I will finish it even it is not nice in my point of view. Am I complaining? Some people may think yes, you are complaining. But I’m not. I only speak out my opinion on that soup; it is a fact or statement which is true from my point of view.

Writing is always one of my habits although it is not my talent. It helps me to balance myself and I was calmed once I wrote it.

I apology to all the reader if I make you feel that I’m complaining this world, complaining peoples around me and complaining myself. Please believe me that, I’m not. I only told you something that in my opinion it’s true for me.

You know what you're talking or not?

In every project that I handle, I met quite some number of peoples. Some are expert, some are stupid, and some are “sing ka” (con man). I thanks god that so far those peoples that I deal with are quite normal, until recently I met some fucking ego idiots.

Lot of peoples likes to show off their capability in front of their bosses. So they like to talk a lot whenever their boss is there, whether the word comes out from their mouth is logic or not, they just don’t care and start to pluck from the sky and throw it out to show their “intelligent” and “hardworking-ness”.

When these peoples start to talk, the only action I can do is showing the shocking face and I don’t know how to answer those stupid questions which don’t need answer. There are many stupid real life examples that I can share you, and believe it or not, this is the first time I want to become as stupid as possible in order for me to follow their instructions.

1. In order to have “fantastic” control system, I have been asked to on and off the air-cond. unit installed in the manager room. The reason given is that the manager maybe already went back home and he forgot to off the air-cond.
You don’t actually need the control system, what you need is to employ a guy to fully responsible to on and off the air-cond unit for their bosses by pressing the switch in front of their manager room.

2. In order to have a nice look and feel, I have been instructed to take out all the relays from the relay panel. But how I going to split the signal between PLC and indicator light? And guess what, the given solution is to drive the indicator light from a PLC digital out O_o.
PLC is not an item for you to show off; it is a very important equipment to do the complex control sequence. A relay is not an ugly old component; it is a very important and useful component in simple and reliable hardwires logic.

3. Two management level guys stop the welding because they found out that the gap between two pieces of pipe is bigger than the welding rod diameter. The reason given is that the welder can’t weld properly with gap like this.
Bro, you know what you talking or not? If you need welding course I can introduce a cheap and quick welding training for you with my own cost.

Lot of time, people doesn’t realize that how irritating is their stupid question, argument and reason are. If you really want to challenge people’s work, please make sure you have all the proper knowledge and skill before you start fire. Don’t insult people’s intelligent because of your stupidity.

Human stupidity

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

Albert Einstein

I love this quote, it is simple, teasing and yet it is so true. I don't know why Einstein said this, but I believe he should be sicked when looking at those idiots that are ruin the world.

Once a while we heard some stupid stories about some stupid ideas, stupid actions, illogical statement from friend around us. Sometime we wonder how come these idiots exist in this world. They should, by all means, extinct from this world. However, when we zoom to a bigger screen, there are endless wars at every conner on the third planet from sun. I personally don't understand why people war, what are they looking for? For justice? For wealth? For living?

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

Albert Einstein

If Einstein knew his knowledge will be used to create atomic bomb, he will definitely wouldn't publish his papers.

When we laugh at people's stupidity, please look at ourself, are we a joke for others?

Thanks God it's Thursday again

It is my second week in this dusty desert, if you ask me how I feel, I will tell you, I want to go back to the Bolehland.

Basically, I start working from 4.30AM until 12.30PM to avoid the heat from the summer's sun. So the working hour is more or less same as Bolehland. Just I don't know the meal I took is breakfast or lunch or dinner. It is difficult to define in this situation. Anyway, that no the main reason I want to go back.

The weather is hot, well, I'm not all the time at site so I can't really feel the heat. Anyway, I can't denied the temperature, but I believe it still within my acceptable range. With this kind of temperature, you definitely can't bath in the afternoon. It is too hot to bath. So, I can only taking my bath after 7PM.

Then what make me want to go back?

Basically, there is nothing in this desert compare to Bolehland. Nothing is here except dust and more dust.

Talking to the client will just make you vomit. They like to pretend they are the greater than us by just pluck something from the sky and start to speech. Well, for me it is a stupid action that actually tell your opponent that you are stupid and you know nuts. Anyway, those people only care about how is the look, but they don't care or don't know what is the critical for the system. It is good for me since it is more easier for me to do my work, just I can't really stand their stupidity for asking something irrelevant and stupid. Engineer don't really care how is the look, we care about the functionality and reliability. So, better get a engineer boy friend, but don't get a engineer girl friend ;) Up to certain stage, we also like pretty look.

Taken this photo at 5AM, the sky are very dusty, that cause the sun look like a egg yolk.

Tomorrow is Friday and it is rest day and I can enjoy my day just to sleep on the sofa for the whole day.

For all the engineers that try to build this wonderful world.
