Google AdSense Earnings Have Dropped

July 30, 2008 · Posted in Rant Corner · 1 Comment 

On average, my Google AdSense earnings have dropped drastically. Apparently, something is not right; either I am targeting at a wrong group of people, or that the posts are receiving lesser attention.

Times must be quite bad; with rising prices of oil, there is also inflation, thus affecting Google revenue to drop (I suspect), which is why the payout is little and the visitors are far and few. Although I am not a professional blogger, but after all, I depend on Google AdSense to pay off the server’s bill, hosting fees and domain charges. And I believe there are a lot others who are in the same situation as I am.

Well, if there is another second Google AdSense, please help me and let me know. I would like to keep my sites running, as long as I could.

Rest and Sleep Needed

July 30, 2008 · Posted in Rant Corner · 1 Comment 

The past 4 weeks have been pretty hectic, even when I claimed that my schedule will be better this week, but I am still experiencing the “lack of rest” effect. Perhaps, tonight will be a good time to catch up on my energy loss and replenish whatever I had expended.

So, how is life, everyone? Recently, I received a comment from a reader telling me about her lack of rest as well. Then, I felt so ashamed of myself, when I compared myself to her. Having written the following,

…I am feeling very tired, I need to work, take care of children’s studies, wake up early, sleep late..i am feeling very tired.. I worry for my children’s future and every thing….

Yeah, maybe I should not complaining and be more appreciative of my life.

Where Does All Those Spams Come From?

July 24, 2008 · Posted in Rant Corner · 1 Comment 

I wonder, who is so free to keep sending spams to other people? It doesn’t happen once a week, in fact it happens practically almost every hour, or even every minute! Is it some kind of bots that is creating havoc? Or is it some human being displaying their skills of being able to send junk stuffs to as many people as they possibly could?

No answer to that; but I do believe some users actually made use of programming language to send spam messages across blogs and websites. That also includes emails and attachments that you receive in your inbox.

There is a thrill of emptying the junk folder, because it shows how powerful the junk detector is. Nonetheless, what about others who do not use any form of junk detection application? Sounds terrible isn’t it?

Just like anti-virus programs, spam blockers are a must in our daily applications.

Multiple Page Views Per Visit?

July 24, 2008 · Posted in Site Info · 1 Comment 

Over the past few weeks, I noticed something very interesting happening on my site. It was observed that within a 24-hour window period, there is so many page views (about 1000+), but according to the record, only about 50 unique visitors. Is there a possibility that any reader would read something like 20 to 30 posts each time they visit? Sounds like bots to me, rather.

The above-attached image shows the most recent FireStats statistics; apparently it looks pretty dubious. Chances are, they are more of bots than authentic readers.

Touching MATLAB

July 23, 2008 · Posted in Matlab · 1 Comment 

It has been quite some time since I get my hands dirty on MATLAB, a powerful mathematical and simulation application (software), which I previously used to run extensive simulations over several days and weeks. I am still highly fascinated with MATLAB, as it practically allows users to program work the way they want them to be.

Perhaps, when I have more time to run some data analysis or data crunching, I will be getting back to use MATLAB again. However, as we know sometimes MATLAB takes up quite a huge amount of memory consumption and it is not the most efficient application for running linear algebra, programming part of the source code in C language will be a great idea!

Combining the C language and MATLAB together brings out a fortified data-crunching simulation. It is extremely good when run with “nodesktop” and “nojvm”. In so doing, the amount of memory allocation is greatly reduced whilst freeing up for the use of large-scale data-crunching analysis.

Anyway, I will talk more about it again when I have time. Right now, I am getting back to make use of this application to bring out the best in Dynamic System Identification.

Moody Monday Night

July 21, 2008 · Posted in Rant Corner · 1 Comment 

All of a sudden, I felt a little moody.

It feels like really heavy on the heart, yet nothing can be explained.

Was I too insensitive? Or was I too ignorant? Or I cannot be bothered? Hmm….

Nothing to say…

Blog Sites – Gateway to a Person Life

July 21, 2008 · Posted in Anything · Comments Off on Blog Sites – Gateway to a Person Life 

Just imagine about 5 years ago, blog sites are not that popular. Ever since blog applications, such as WordPress, b2evolution and Movable Types, began to arouse writer’s interest, blogging became viral. Almost everyone, including corporates, researchers, employees, individuals, students and granny, is blogging about anything and everything. The word “blog” was even added to the English vocabulary and can even be used as a verb! Just because it is easier to blog (than to write an article), it slowly crept into our lives without us realising it.

The purpose of blogging is very vast. Some corporates used it to interact with customers, academic used it to update the curriculum, professional bloggers use them to make money, individuals make use of blogging to talk about their life. As much as it is being used positively to disseminate information, little did they (some individual bloggers) know that Internet is the backyard of the ultimate Information Technology – the driving force of privacy intrusion. A small amount of information can be pieced together to form the large picture, which inevitably reveals a person’s private life.
