Migration Complete

Friday, March 30th, 2007

This site has once again moved. Now nobody can say to me that I have not tried to support the Malaysian hosting industry. I tried, and I don’t like it. All of the other sites hosted on the previous server has also been migrated here. Hopefully this would be a better home. It would be […]

Bye, Exabytes

Friday, March 30th, 2007

It has become worst since these last few days. Mails are missing, and site is not accessible many times. I’ve set up server monitoring at and I receive on average 6 downtime alerts per day, with monitoring triggered every 30 minutes. I’ve seen people writing about my plugin said “if you can’t access the […]

WiMAX In Malaysia

Thursday, March 29th, 2007

Ok ok I know this is old news for most of you. I just can find this time to write a bit about it. Technically speaking WiMAX stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. It is a common misconception to consider WiMAX and Wi-Fi as similar technologies. The fact that they both start with same […]

Rest In Peace

Thursday, March 29th, 2007

It is a sad moment indeed. Prayers and Al-Fatihah to our dear friend Rafizul Elmy, or better known as Ali. He passed away on Monday evening around 10.00pm after suffering for a month plus in chemotherapy. May he rest in peace. Ali leaves behind a wife and a little daughter. May they be blessed, always.

What’s Wrong With Fotopages?

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

Lately when accessing Fotopages, there has been quite a lot of occurrence of this error: db error Lost connection to MySQL server during query . I wonder why. Maybe the database server is overloaded? From my analysis it looks like the database is located in a different server 🙂

AdSense Referrals Beta

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

I received my email subscription to Inside AdSense just about 20 minutes ago. There’s good news – AdSense is launching a referral program where you can refer products from advertisers now, not only Google products. When a visitor clicks on your referral link, if he/she completes an action defined by the advertiser, you get paid! […]

JavaScripts getElementsByName – IE Vs Firefox

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

A little coding story. I spent quite some time to figure out what’s wrong with my code. Consider the following code: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 <html> <head> <script type="text/javascript"> function getElements() { var x=document.getElementsByName("myInput"); alert("First Element value is: " […]

FeedBurner Feed Replacement

Monday, March 19th, 2007

If any one of you just updated to the newer version of WordPress, make sure that you also update to the latest version of the plugin. A fellow blogger encountered this error on WordPress 2.1.x yesterday, as he still had the version 2.1 of the plugin. This is caused by the removal of generate_page_rewrite_rules function […]

Why Use Gmail

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

Someone at work forwarded me to this video today. Good video to fill up some time… It really looks fun over there in Google land. 🙂

Time and Space Continuum

Friday, March 9th, 2007

I watched a few episodes of Heroes last night until episode 10. I was thinking that when Hiro went back to the past to save Charlie (after she has been murdered by Sylar), didn’t he risk causing a rift in the time and space continuum? Just think of it this way, when Hiro and Ando […]

PostieCon 07

So you’re a blogger? Are you a member of PayPerPost? Maybe you’ve heard about PostieCon 07, and then again maybe not. This is a damn cool way for PPP to educate bloggers on building traffic, building readership, and to use your brand to realize value and monetize your thoughts. The event is a blogging conference, […]

I Am Romanian

Tuesday, March 6th, 2007

Hey cool. I noticed a pingback from the Cheques Gallery blog, and in yesterday’s post the author of the site actually thought that I am a Romanian 😉 Perhaps it was the word Romantika. It was an honest mistake, frankly I enjoyed it!

Damn Crackers!

Monday, March 5th, 2007

To anyone who have downloaded and used WordPress 2.1.1, you must immediately download 2.1.2. Now! An evil cracker managed to get into one of WordPress’ server and edited some file, resulting in the ability to remotely execute PHP codes. This is a very serious issue. News at Even the F-Secure Weblog posted on this […]

Success Does Not Come Easy

Friday, March 2nd, 2007

Following my previous post about the $700K+ check, I looked up some information on the site. From the site’s copyright notice at the bottom the site have been running since 2001. However check this out, traffic graph from Alexa: Permalink here. As you can see, it’s not a while for the site to gain traffic […]

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

It’s official. This morning at home I switched on my machine, browsed on LiewCF, saw some posts, followed a link, and fell off my chair. I am talking about this post. The check’s total value is $901,733.84 (Canadian Dollars). That’s the check for 2 months. This guy would be a millionaire already if he is […]
