Singapore's founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, breathed his last on 23rd March 2015 at 3.18 am. As a Singaporean, the demise of our founding father had spurred inspirations amid sadness in me.

Without a doubt, Mr Lee Kuan Yew had played a crucial role in Singapore's prosperity. As my tribute to Mr Lee Kuan Yew, I pen some of his quotes that inspire me in my pursuit of my career in information technology.

Proving that we can use jQuery to push a dynamically generated file to the web browser based on the user's input

In order to demonstrate the possibility of using JavaScript/jQuery to push a dynamically generated file from the server backend to the browser, a sample scenario was created.

There is a number dial that changes rapidly and a text field for the user to enter his name. When the user clicks on the "get lucky number" button, jQuery is used to send the lucky number on the number dial and the user name to the server.

The server generates a text file based on the input from the user and sends the file back to the browser. The browser will then show a download dialog box for the user to decide whether to save a copy of the file or view the file using one of the native applications found in his/her computer.
