Friday, May 25th, 2007

Well well well. PayPerPost has just introduced a new service called PayPerPost Direct (PPP Direct). If you’re crazy about making money via blogging, blog ads, or anything related then you should really check it out. If you are already a PPP postie then I guess it needs no introduction. PPP has certainly came a long […]

Imagine Hiro Yelling “Bonsai”

Thursday, May 24th, 2007

I am working at night this week and as always as I want to enjoy the “lunch” my wife prepared for me I would look for something to watch. Searching for Heroes I found this clip containing an interview with Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura) and Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrelli): The script originally contained the word […]

4.0Mbps Streamyx?

Monday, May 21st, 2007

I was browsing through some blogs when I found myself on this particular post in doBot’s blog. Here’s the official announcement. Familiar Malaysian forums have been discussing this for a while, and as usual I’m left behind again. Some of them mentioned that the 4Mbps is nothing if TMNet still decides to limit/throttle traffic especially […]

What Are .ISO Images

Saturday, May 19th, 2007

Have you ever downloaded a file with the extension .iso and have no idea what to do with it? It has been not once, not twice, but at least 6 times I have provided a .iso file to a friend / family member and the .iso file ended up to be a single file on […]

Freaking Out Over Tests

Saturday, May 19th, 2007

What kind of shopper are you? When you have something in mind do you just go and buy it without any research? I used to be like that until I made several mistakes buying things not worth the price! I’ve found this site TestFreaks, and they are in Alpha mode. The contents that they are […]

New Metrics & Ranking System

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

I was alerted by Firefox earlier today to update one of the plugins I use: SearchStatus. It is a plugin which displays Google PageRank, Alexa Rank, and the latest update includes Compete Rank. It turns out Compete has been around for quite a while now. I am surprised why I never heard of them. According […]

There are a lot of new goodies with this release, among the big ones are Integrated Widgets, Full Atom support, New Blogger importer, Infinite comment stream, protection against plugins or edits that will break your blog, and also a hook for a future WYSIWYG support […]

Yahoo! Mail Unlimited Storage

Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

Logging into my Yahoo! Mail today, I was surprised with a message “The storage meter is going bye-bye”. Yahoo! is still in the game of free emails. I am a Yahoo! Mail Plus user so I have access to POP and SMTP but I do welcome this upgrade! After all, if free users get unlimited […]

My AdSense PIN Has Arrived

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

Despite of a shadowy day (the shadow is in my head) today, I am thrilled to learn that my AdSense PIN has arrived safely at my home. It felt good. I’ve been busy and tired lately, this is a very big hurdle for a non full time blogger like me. Less and less time (and […]

Domain Marketplace

Saturday, May 12th, 2007

Are you running a specific online business, or at least planning to have one? Do you realize the importance of having a good, catchy domain name for your business? I had several experiences (good and bad) when it comes to buying special domains. Once I was even involved in a fraudulent domain purchase transaction which […]

Down With A Cold

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

Yesterday morning it was raining quite heavily since about 4:00 am or so and the whole day was cold and dark. I caught a cold because of the sudden change. And then today, it’s (very) hot as usual. Mother Nature is really not feeling very well and so am I.

My Version of Pidgin Portable

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

Latest Update click here. I am a curious programmer, and was all the way wondering on how apps on PortableApps were made. Since Pidgin, the replacement for Gaim was released I was waiting for a while for Portable Apps but I guess they must be busy with the number off apps they have to handle. […]

Why You Should Not Use Shared Passwords

Tuesday, May 8th, 2007

You have probably heard this many times, your friend or someone told you that you should not use the same password for all of your website memberships. Perhaps they never told you why. I have seen people taking this for granted many times, using the same password even for online banking accounts! So I am […]

Global Warming Effects Geeks Too

Monday, May 7th, 2007

In the area where I live (and work) it has been so hot for quite while now. Since I am working in an air-conditioned office at work and in my home office I did not really realize how seriously the heat has become until I received multiple alerts from my SMART monitoring software. Seagate disks […]
