Firefox is my default browser and have been using Firefox 3 release candidate since the day they launch and really in love with it. It has been said that there are 14,000 improvements since the version 2. I didn’t really dig it but from what i feel, the version 3 is so light and really make my internet life better.
This is fun. Emma Watson converted into truck driver using a.viary, an online image editing (and more) tool. A little description about the service:
Aviary is a suite of web-based applications (RIAs) for people who create. From image editing to typography to music to 3D to video, we have a tool for artists of all genres.
Amazon affiliate program is probably the oldest and the most successful internet affiliate program in the world. They provide a wide range of supporting tool for their affiliates. However, among those fancy and helpful tools, my favorite is always their aStore.
I installed most major browsers in my computer. The main objective is to check how web layouts work in other browsers (Firefox is my default browser).But testing the site in different browser is impractical, and also i can’t test websites in different Operating Systems. However, the nice people in Browsershots can help me to overcome these problems.
This tool come right on time when i decided to move another blog from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress.
When updating DNS (changing servers etc), most of the times it’s just painful to wait up to 72 hours just to see your DNS propagate to the internet. The thing is, it might happen anytime soon and you wouldn’t notice. I usually wait and check back often just to make sure that the DNS is updated. It’s a waste of time, really.
For the last 2 weeks, i start to use another Blog Editor. I use it because i need to overcome these constraints on running and authoring self-hosted WordPress blogs:
- I’m authoring multi blogs.
- I use hosting plans with its limited shared resources. At slow loading times, i can spend mostly an hour only to publish a single post!
- I need to always logged in to WordPress Dashboard only to publish a post (then usually look around see if i can tweak something :-D).
- Add Media feature in WordPress 2.5.1. suck. Find it freeze all the time and mostly ends with Firefox crashes.
- I have many drafts in my blog admin and if any MF find security leaks in WP, maybe they can explore it like in the past version. I don’t want to give them that job.
In the past, i’ve been using several blogging editors but i stop using it:
Note: This is too much geeky if you don’t run your own WordPress blog, an active Twitter account and setting up your name/aliases at Google Alerts.
Somehow Twitter and Google Alerts can be very annoying if i get too much updates. But i found this interesting that connect the 2 services (and a WordPress blog) in a very cool way.
I went to the site several days ago but never got the chance to try it out until earlier today. Given the buzz lately i visited the site with high expectation.
I am sorry for the title, but PluggedIn.com was cool until i found this:
I’ve been messing up with dozens of WordPress Themes, either for my own blogs and lately for my client’s blogs. Lately i’ve been experimenting by converting a CSS template into WordPress template. When i finished my first template, i was like, OMG i can make a wordpress template by my own, but then, i found out that some plugins are just not working in my template, especially PodPress.
I never realize that YouTube has been play a great part in my internet life until the site was stupidly blocked for the last 4 days by my ISP. Somehow, the condition developed as more and more people here realize that blocking the site is just overdoing a good idea on paper.
My ISP has yet to block YouTube which must be the stupidest act that an ISP can do. So i would like to take this opportunity to post another cool video uploaded at YouTube.
The video explain what is art from animal perspective. Art?
After several hours effort moving this blog’s host, i was tempted (read: forced) to upgrade to WordPress 2.5 which was released earlier today. I wouldn’t get into details because you can always find it at many WordPress dedicated blogs, but to quote from WordPress Development Blog newest post:
I do check my Yahoo! email to see how many spams i get, but this time i got ‘an important notice’ from Yahoo!:
We’re making some changes that will affect one of your Yahoo! profiles. After April 9, 2008, mature content will not be permitted within Yahoo! Profiles.
I’ve been a fan of web design galleries. Everytime i got my RSS Reader open, my first folder i read is usually a folder name ‘blog design’ among others. This morning i’m stoked knowing that this blog is featured at WeLoveWP.com, a site that features WordPress powered websites.
