Crocs Malaysia Warehouse Sale

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

I have always been a fan of Crocs shoes because of their lightness, durability and the airy design. As someone who suffers from athlete’s foot since the teen years, airy means better air circulation and dryer feet. Back in 2009 or 2010 we went to a Crocs warehouse sale in Ikano Power Center in Damansara. […]

O2 Broadband. Customer Loyalty. Rewarded

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

A friend living in the UK asked my opinion on which provider he should choose for his Internet needs. He showed me a few options and O2 Broadband is definitely the winner. I have heard about issues with customer support before but the truth is we’re all humans and we’re hard to be pleased. From […]

Everything On The Web Is Public Domain

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

That’s what an Editor of the Cooks Source magazine told a writer when she called about the magazine taking her 5-year old article and publishing it in the magazine. If that’s true this blog wouldn’t have been taken down by GoDaddy a few months back because one of the sister blogs hosted in the same […]

DiGi iPhone Page Has Wrong Modification Date via HTTP

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

iPhone 4 has just been launched in Malaysia, and I have also been closely following the progress. Looking at SoyaCincau’s comparison between Maxis and DiGi, I was attempting to load DiGi’s page again. I have done this before. Instead of talking about iPhone 4 itself, I am going to see why the page is showing […]

Maxis Transparent Proxy is Causing Problems to Developers

I had to transfer 2 WordPress blogs to another hosting provider last night, as the free one is going to expire today. It should be as easy as: Transfer the files Transfer the database Change DNS servers in registry to the new DNS servers Configure the new hosting location In a few hours after the […]

Maxis SysAdmins Are Rookies?

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

If you’re one of the SysAdmins working for Maxis, and you celebrated the recent System Administrator’s Appreciation day, you should really think about your future. SysAdmins are supposed to make people life’s easier, not the other way round. Maxis has been implementing transparent proxy for some time now, I think to save on bandwidth usage […]

Bank Simpanan Nasional Should Provide Better Service

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

I was instructed by my financial advisor to apply for the Al-Aiman credit card because of the low cash advance fee, to execute in a financial program, so I did and I got approved. However I received 2 cards (both Visa and MasterCard) although I only applied for a Visa card. Something fishy is going […]

Amway Sucks

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Due to the ranting nature of this post, reader discretion is advised. Some language may be offensive. More than a year ago, I became an Amway agent just because I needed to buy some recommended products from them. This was done by contacting an agent in the forums, in the Internet. When explained that I […]

Friday, March 5th, 2010

It was an interesting morning today, when a friend told me that his brother received a job offer in a Forex trading company in Shah Alam.

I received an email with no text but contained just an image as attachment, and the whole image is a hyperlink to a phishing site: Notice the casual language and a spelling mistake (find out where!), plus the Copyright year is 2009. The email was sent to someone without the Internet banking facility, and a […]
