Sunday, December 31st, 2006

I was pissed off with a Standard Chartered credit card salesman yesterday as he insistently pushed me to apply for one. He even promised that I would get a Gold card. Well, its not entirely his fault as I was actually pissed off with the banks customer support. Since 6 months back I have been […]

Google Analytics Plugin Not Showing

Saturday, December 30th, 2006

Well, this is not a complaint to the great plugin, but for some themes. Themes like Intense, and AquaGreen does not have any wp_footer call so the tracking code will not show. How to fix it? Open up themes/[themename]/footer.php and add <?php wp_footer(); ?> before </body> resulting in: <?php wp_footer(); ?> </body> </html> Hope this […]

Be Careful In Cyberjaya

Friday, December 29th, 2006

For those working/studying or doing whatever in Cyberjaya, please be careful if you make the illegal U-turn after exiting The Street Mall. If you can, do a U-turn somewhere else where it’s safe.

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Holidays. Be safe. I will be away for the weekend, to a galaxy far far away. Just kidding. I am going to Pahang for my wife’s business. It’s not a vacation as I have to spend my time in the hotel room working on a development […]

Blogger Moves Out Of Beta

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

Blogger is now out of Beta: However I tried my Blogger Beta Importer and it still works 🙂 I think this is because the importer depends on the RSS provided by the New Blogger. Perhaps I should change my importer’s name to New Blogger import? My true wish is that to have that importer […]
