Gmail Gone Offline

Saturday, January 31st, 2009

I have been actively glancing over to the settings page to see whether “Offline” has been activated for my account.

Another AdSense Payment

Friday, January 30th, 2009

Today I managed to cash out my latest AdSense payment via Western Union. This is just to show a prove, and to motivate the unmotivated.
