Good Bye MyBlogLog

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

I have just received an email from Yahoo! announcing the end of MyBlogLog service. It’s going to be discontinued effective May 24, 2011. Nice of Yahoo! to give us some time before terminating it for good. However the link for help pages redirected me to this page:, which I think is a mistake because […]

Yahoo! Mail is Down

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

I am unsure whether this is only effected Plus users, or everyone. When I failed to fetch my emails using Thunderbird, I tried the web interface and received this:

Delayed Yahoo! Messenger Custom Message Updates

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Borrowing Google’s term – I have lately been using a flaky connection when connecting to the Internet. What I noticed is that my Yahoo! Messenger list becomes static and no custom messages are being updated. When I looked at my friend’s list, the custom message I set wasn’t showing. I was also not able to […]

Filters! Yahoo! I Want Better Filters!

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

I have been a long time Yahoo! Mail user (since 2001), and a paying customer of Yahoo! Mail Plus for 5 years+ (since 2003). There were no Gmail back then, and I needed a permanent email with POP3 access. Yahoo! slowly improved their services, although one thing that I have always been annoyed about is […]

MyBlogLog: Where Have I Been?

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

I am a little embarrassed to admit that I have neglected MyBlogLog for quite some time that I never noticed that it has been bought by Yahoo!. I did wonder on how some people get very nice MyBlogLog widgets and today I decided to check it out. I was asked to link my account to […]

Yahoo! Mail Now Unlimited

Friday, June 1st, 2007

Yeah, you heard it right. Yahoo! has finally disabled the storage limitation for all users! As a long time Yahoo! Mail Plus user with 2GB max storage I was surprised to see that my limit has been decreased to 1GB and only 35% of my email exists where it was at 50% level before. Of […]

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 […]

Yahoo! POP3 and SMTP Via SSL

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

It has almost been 5 years since I have subscribed to Yahoo! Mail Plus and I am really satisfied with the service. With POP3 and SMTP access, I couldn’t be happier. Furthermore the ability to add disposable email addresses to combat SPAM from not-so-trusted sites is really useful. Yesterday I tried to send an email […]

Yahoo! Time Capsule

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

Time capsule? Isn’t that idea kinda old? Not really, if combined with today’s multimedia techniques and technologies. Quite a while ago, Yahoo! has introduced Yahoo! time capsule, created by Jonathan Harris, an internet artist. For 30 days, from October 10 until November 8, Yahoo! users worldwide can contribute photos, writings, videos, audio, even drawings, to […]
