During one weekend, I was walking along the roadside, I happened to see a flower standing out right in my path. Well, as you know I had been rather intrigued to make full use of my Nokia E71, I decided to take a quick shot at the flower. I am no expert in botany, but I appreciate beauty in its very unique life form. So, here you go. If you can tell me what the name of this flower, it’ll be really cool!
Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 has finally been released. Although I might have mentioned before that we should avoid using it, as an avid Internet user myself, I cannot help but feel tempted to give this a try; the same that I had for Google Chrome.
There are various new features in this release, as compared to past version 6 and 7 of Internet Explorer. Of course, I would have preferred to use this than version 7, which I felt really annoyed about, and decided to completely switch back to version 6 instead. It follows that, if I were to install a completely new Windows XP Operating System, I will not hesitate to remain at version 6.
Because I have not tried version 8, I definitely felt the shear temptation to do so. However, I need to take this really carefully, because one wrong move could completely break my entire operating system. So, the question for me is, to move or not to move?
Firefox 3.1 Beta has been around for such a long time, but I don’t understand why GSpace plugin is still not supported!
GSpace, a Mozilla Firefox plugin, is developed to make use of GMail space as a form of file storage. This is especially useful, when Google is willing to offer 7GB of storage space for free (for mail). With this plugin, it transforms the usable space as a file server, by splitting large attachments into batches of 19MB segments! What an ingenious idea!
The last plugin release supports Mozilla Firefox browser up to version 3.0.x. With the beta release of Firefox 3.1 Beta, this plugin is nowhere in support. It has been like that for so many months, ever since Firefox 3.1.x was first released. I hope that GSpace developer continues to support this wonderful plugin, which is something I really cannot do without.

Well, what can I say? Is it the work of some hackers, or the United Overseas Bank (UOB) IT services people has decided to pledge their loyalty to Microsoft? Whilst I was browsing through some of the local banking websites, this has caught my eyes. Why would a large banking institution replace their own favicon with one that does not even represent their own company?
Of course, one of the reasons could be that the site has just been freshly revamped and therefore, the favicon replacement has been overlooked. Secondly, hackers? Hmm… I would really hope it is not the case of the latter. Thirdly, it’s a end-of-March or end-of-Q1 joke. Anyway, I believe this favicon thing won’t be there for long.
Again, Digital Point Forums has fallen to the hands of system failure – could be due to several reasons, e.g. resource overloaded, persistent hacking, etc. Anyway, this just simply show, if you don’t care too much about the ownership of your site, it will still be susceptible to income losses.
The Q1 is coming to an end, and by no mean a small thing, as loads of stuffs begin piling up on my desk. Nevertheless, this is quite a great challenge as I seek to overcome all these ordeal.
Okie dokie, now back to my drawing block… erm, should I say laptop.
Is it true? The Bitter Stick Girl has decided to stop blogging? That cannot be real? Having introduced to me by my sister, this animated version of blogging is so popular that it captured quite a huge audience in Singapore.
