Over the last week I have moved FOCUSER.net (yes the good ol site that does not seem to be used by anyone any more) and all my personal sites from VPSLink to Jumba‘s Virtuozzo VPS. Because It is Australian (servers in Sydney in my case), whereas VPSLink is in US Believe it or not, Jumba [...]
It has been more than 3 weeks since my last blog post, and I blame it sorely on Twitter and I am sure it has nothing to do with my laziness. Hmm. It wasn’t the first that my blog was threatened by Twitter, and you would think that I have migrated to Jaiku already?! Okay. [...]
TechCrunch: Engadget Knocks $4 billion off Apple Market Cap on Bogus iPhone email. Verdict — someone is getting into serious trouble. Just a side note — it is actually not hard to understand why public companies do not like their employees blogging, especially when it is (1) not moderated (2) talking about work. While small [...]
Here are some of things to do when you are very busy. 1. Sleep Less 8 hour sleep is really for wimps — that is way too big a chunk for your day! And I am not even counting other associated activities that are attached to sleeping, or overhead on “context switching” using a technical [...]
Official Google Australia blog, and it is also their very first country-specific blog as well. It was just started 2 days ago so not much content yet, but hopefully we will see more action there. It does make me wonder, whether country-specific blog is going to be a trend in Google, or is there something [...]
Blogpond: Top 100 Australian Blogs Index, listing all the top ranking Australian blogs using this algorithm, which is basically: R = (3 x A + X + T) / 5 R: Overall rankA: Alexa Australia rankX: Alexa rankT: Technorati rank Sounds fair to me, because this very blog is ranked number 17 on that list! [...]
ESV Blog responded their experience of getting dugg in the weekend. Quite an insightful post on Christian blogs, as well as blogs written by Christians. Even if you don’t consider your blog a ministry, it serves as one. And, as we found out, you never know when one of your posts will become popular or [...]
Habari: a new PHP5-only, object-oriented and PDO driven blogging tool. Well, everyone has written a blogging tool or two, but I think what differentiates Habari is the momentum behind it — well known names like Michael Heilemann, Chris Davis, Scott Merrill and Khaled Abou Alfa (i.e. many WordPress contributors) were amongst the developers. I guess [...]
6 years ago when I started blogging (on phpWebSite platform which somehow I did not keep any of my old entries), there ain’t much to read on the net. Well, for me at least — my daily readings are Slashdot and the Heralds, that’s about it. I thought I’ve got all the news that matters. [...]
From Darren Rowse the ProBlogger, where he compared preaching and blogging: I loved working up a sermon in the lead up to giving it. Researching, looking at what others had to say on the topic, piecing together thoughts, looking for illustrations and examples (tangents) and then practicing giving it and making the last minute tweaks [...]
Not sure what is going on, and I have not seen others blog about it, but for the past few days Ping-O-Matic is not working for me. Web page took forever to load, if it loads at all. XML-RPC stalls all my posting. The only thing that seems to be working is their blogsite, which [...]
Steve Rubel wrote: Yahoo 360: The Blog Ghost Town “Yahoo 360 is largely a forgotten product … is largely Geo Cities 2.0″. It was hip only 13 months ago, and was impressed with their access control. But, I still see lots of people hosting their blogs on Blogger.com for its simplicity, and on MSN Space [...]
And that’s what made this Blondie & Dagwood comic strip so funny. At the same time it is also the same dilemma that troubles many on-line diarists (let’s not call them “bloggers”), who always need to choose between “to write” or “not to write”.
Everywhere is blogging about it, apparently Mark Pilgrim has blogged again after 18 month of absense. He’s one of my favourite blogger who has gone indefinite-hiatus (you can see from how much I’ve quoted him in the past). Welcome back!
