Poor M1 Reception in Punggol

February 17, 2010 · Posted in Rant Corner · Comment 

If you are staying in Punggol (Singapore), and you’re accessing to MobileOne (M1) 3G network, don’t expect the best of its quality.

I have tested the network for the past few weeks, and it is really not good at all. Not to mention its line gets cut off in the lift, let’s say even the network is pretty unstable in the house.

Accessing 3G networks, especially those getting online on to the Internet, is not going to enjoy the experience. Within an apartment in Punggol, the network is quite bad, that sometimes phone reception is not received. What has gone wrong?

Simple; there is insufficient access point (or network station) surrounding the Punggol new town. Well, how did other network service provider fare?

Upgraded 2 Powerful WP Plugins

February 13, 2010 · Posted in Site Info · 1 Comment 

I have been using 2 plug-ins for quite some time and I simply love them to bits. Today, I have just upgraded them to the latest version.

The Global Translator Plug-in is a very cool, yet powerful add-on to your WordPress blog. It provides automatic translation to various languages, via a third-party translation tool, e.g. Google Translator. What’s really cool about this is that it multiples one “English” page to several pages of the same content, thereby increasing page count. However, do be careful when using it. You definitely do not want to get banned by Google.

The WP-UserOnline Plug-in is also another baby that is highly recommended. It does not serves much purpose in terms of SEO (Search Engine Optimization), but it does provides administrators on the number of visitors that are currently roaming about on your blog site. A pretty cool statistical tool to have (Update: For some reasons, my link to the User Online page went missing. I guess it might have something to do with the new version).

Pineapples

February 12, 2010 · Posted in Anything · Comment 

Do you like pineapples? I personally don’t quite fancy this particular fruit, but there are some people who claimed that this is good for your body. Read here.

The pineapple is a member of the bromeliad family. It is extremely rare that bromeliads produce edible fruit. The pineapple is the only available edible bromeliad today. It is a multiple fruit. One pineapple is actually made up of dozens of individual floweret’s that grow together to form the entire fruit. Each scale on a pineapple is evidence of a separate flower.

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked. No special way of storing them will help ripen them further. Colour is relatively unimportant in determining ripeness.

Choose your pineapple by smell. If it smells fresh, tropical and sweet, it will be a good fruit. The more scales on the pineapple, the sweeter and juicier the taste. After you cut off the top, you can plant it. It should grow much like a sweet potato will. This delicious fruit is not only sweet and tropical; it also offers many benefits to our health.

Wayne Rooney – Leading The Top Scorer Chart in EPL – February 2010

February 12, 2010 · Posted in English Football · 1 Comment 

Who would have known Wayne Rooney has broken his record in the number of goals scored per season to top the current Top Scorer Chart in the English Premiership League (EPL).

His 21 goals scored in the EPL this season is unlikely to stop here as he seeks to achieve 30 goals target he set for himself.

With 12 more matches to go, who would know what might change. Drogba, who has scored in the last few matches, is a worthy challenger for the top spot. From the list, I do not see anyone who will be able to hit the peak by the end of this season, apart from these 2 fearsome strikers.

If Rooney keeps himself injury-free, he can be a safe bet for you to put your money.

Record Breaking – Total Number of Concurrent Visitors

February 12, 2010 · Posted in Site Info · Comment 

I was pretty much surprised by the fact that my site has hit a record high of over 400 visitors concurrently visiting it. This probably has something related to the last post I made on Weird Attack on my Site.

Well, it is a good thing that my site is being visited by more hits than usual; unfortunately, earnings from Google AdSense is still pretty limited. Hope this will change the fortune.

Weird Attack on My (Bluehost) Site

February 11, 2010 · Posted in Site Info · 1 Comment 

Something weird is happening to my site. Over the last 7 days, I noticed a huge influx of traffic communicating to and fro my site. According to the graphical status (shown above), it seems to have nothing to do with HTTP or any other form of genuine traffic type.

This is rather worrying. The trend is also particularly interesting. Is demonstrates a saw-tooth waveform, peaking at certain time of the day before dipping back to the lowest.

I also did a quick check on the IP address; true enough, it came from one source – Russia. It also follows that the source is targetting one domain; that is secret.extrarisk.com (this site). I think it is about time that I do something before I get booted by Bluehost.
