Encode AMR to MP3

Wednesday, December 28th, 2005

Nowadays I have a habit of recording my phone conversations through my k750i. The problem is that the files are saved in AMR format and my PC can’t play it. Googling around reveals that AMR files can be converted to WAV and MP3, so I created a shell script to do this for me. Prerequisites: […]

BI Marketing

Tuesday, December 27th, 2005

Last Friday a company called BI Marketing called my home number twice, asking for the address for them to send free magazine. I told them I am not interested.

Somebody from TMNET called me again today (26-Dec-2005 14:14) asking whether my Streamyx is working fine. It’s an Indian name so I don’t quite catch it.

Yesterday (22nd December 2005, 14:25) a TMNET staff named ANITA called me, she rudely said "I don’t understand what’s your problem.". I have been explaining the problem like hundred of times.

The previous post was posted 100% as I have written it inside my text editor to preserve originality. Yes I can change the post date but I just want to demonstrate the misery I’ve had for the last few weeks. On Monday, 19th of December I went to Taipan (USJ), to convert my prepaid to […]
