Nikon Capture NX on Linux

Saturday, July 28th, 2007

I am feeling a little bit slow today, because my notebook is slow. LOL. I think this relates directly to the fact that everyday at work I am using a new Lenovo T60 notebook which is much faster than my 2 years old personal notebook. I used to dual-boot the notebook with Debian where the […]

Asian Cup: Malaysia 1 China 5

Thursday, July 12th, 2007

Yes, it’s soccer or as we in Malaysia locally call it, football. The national team lost 5-1 to China on Tuesday night match, and it is not a good news. However I am not a football fan and this blog is not a sports blog. I just need to vent out my frustration and disappointment […]

Tuesday, July 10th, 2007

Do you have any backups of your data? Are you willing to lose precious data such as your digital photos, accounts, letters, spreadsheets, and the list goes on and on.
