DOG-GONE IT!

DOG-GONE IT! Malay Mail, 10 Mar 2006 HERE are some of the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) dog licensing regulations that will be amended and enforced from April 1: * Dog owners will have to pay RM20 for a dog license (covering processing fee and microchip) instead of RM60 annually. * The annual dog licensing fee will be fixed at RM20. Senior citizens aged 56 and above will only pay RM10 and the fee will be waived for the handicapped (provided they show their disability card during applications). * Owners with intermediate terrace houses can keep dogs provided they have the written consent of their neighbors (to their left and right). However, existing licensed dog owners DO NOT need such consent. * Existing licensed dog owners who acquired their licenses from other local authorities shall continue to use those licenses until they expire. * Rottweilers are no longer banned in Shah Alam. However, those who want to adopt this breed as pets must obtain special approval from the State Veterinary Department. * There are seven breeds of dogs that are banned in Shah Alam — the Akita, American Bulldog, Dogo Argentino, Fila Braziliero, Japanese Tosa, Neopolitan Mastiff and Pit Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull/Saffonshire Bull Terrier. This is definitely good news for dog owners in Shah Alam area. Owners with intermediate terrace houses can keep dogs provided they have the written consent of their neighbors (to their left and right). However, existing licensed dog owners DO NOT need such consent.

VOIP Stunt

I have been trying out VOIP Stunt via PC and it works great. VOIP Stunt currently offer unlimited call the land lines in Malaysia, UK, USA and Australia and to enjoy the free call and low call rates to many countries, I have purchased and installed a Linksys ATA Adaptor and configure it to work with VOIP Stunt. The Linksys ATA offer two lines and each line can configure to work with one VOIP Stunt Account and by connecting these two lines to the keyphone system in the office, fellow office workers will be able to call using them and hence enjoy substantial saving especially on calls to other cities in Malaysia. We have so far tested with two lines with one streamyx connection account and the quality is extremely good. Not to forget that to enjoy those free calls, there is a need to make a payment of 10 Euro per VOIP Stunt account that will last you up to four months if you do not make calls to places that VOIP Stunt charge minimal fee.
