Out Of Time

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

If you’re always out of time like yours truly, you might want to consider a time management software. I’ve been using a lot of Microsoft Outlook® at my workplace and the built-in calendar is good but is too simple for a hectic lifestyle. Effexis has a series of full featured time management software called Achieve. […]

Thanks, Daddy

Friday, January 19th, 2007

Well, this post is not about my dad but about GoDaddy. Tonight, after my continuous disappointment with RegisterFly I decided to buy some domains from GoDaddy. I am still very impressed with their system. Top level automation. For my story I will need the following image to assist me. As their promotion mentioned: Private Registration […]

Malaysian Bloggers Sued

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Yes what you heard is right. Sued. Jeff Ooi and Rocky were served separately by a group of the same people for what else but the contents of their blogs. I am very unfamiliar with law terms, and in the area itself so I am not going to comment much. However seeing the situation I […]

A Sneak Peek at WordPress 2.1

I do keep track of the subversion repository and the latest I just updated from the server is 2.1 beta4. I can see lots of improvements for the management interface although I don’t have the time to take a look at the internals yet. The interface runs smoother and faster – or is it just […]

Urgh… RegisterFly did it again. Although I have officially become a GoDaddy customer, I still have like USD30+ in my RegisterFly account so I decided to spend the money on some domains I have in mind. Guess what? I registered and paid for the domains on the 5th of January 2007 but until today there’s […]

Useful WordPress Plugin: WordPress Suicide

Monday, January 15th, 2007

WordPress Suicide is a useful plugin, particularly if you are running tests on your freshly installed WordPress. Also, if you are trying to import your posts and comments from the New Blogger this could prove useful – if you are unlucky to have problems during your import. Some people succeed the first time, but some […]

Firewall in Malay

Monday, January 15th, 2007

For no apparent reason, while driving back from work today I wondered about what do you call firewall in Malay language. Would it become “dinding api“? Dinding = wall Api = fire It’s reversed because the language is constructed that way… 😉

Brutally Betrayed

Sunday, January 14th, 2007
