    Darn, we should made it to the top list.
    Readers Digest made a poll for the world's rudest cities and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) was on the third spot. I have no idea on what facts they held the survey but i'm sure KL is not belong in the list.

    Ok, maybe it should be. But again, there was no concrete explaination from this survey. New York was voted as the most polite city in the world? Ermm...i'm not going to say anything about LA but ermm...

    To be honest, my mind is not in the focus level because i'm jobless now! Yup, i need some support from you guys. Just leave your suggestion or comments or anything that can give me a good boost. But if you want to show your support, you can always donate to me.

    I know i'll be on my feet soon but in the mean time, i just want to be free. It's weird tho, it's just like a whole bunch of load just lifted from my shoulder and i'm smilling. God works in weird way and maybe this is the sign for me to shift my focus and energy into something else. Maybe i should focus on my art (i do draw and paint) more and start selling my art at a higher tag.

    About my blog, i don't know how can i blog. Before this, i blogged from my office since witing for the telco company to install my phone connection at home still "offline".

    Right now, i'm at a cyber centre in Kuantan. As i stated earlier, God works in weird way and just now, a guy whom i never met before told me that he is enjoying working with his passion making keychains. He told me that he was once a professional art director in KL and got a big pay-check every month. When our economy went slow in the mid 90's, the company he worked with decided to down-sizing.

    I quit my job today!
    Enough is enough. I can't stand it anymore. I work hard but because of a person gave the wrong info to my boss, i got an internal memo. So i quit my job today. Right now i'm jobless and clueless.

    Did that going to give me a headache? Maybe but maybe not. I do believe God will help me out. I do believe the world is wide enough for me to play in.

    If you're are from Malaysia looking for a worker, i'm all ears.

    Unzip those zip. Zip tool review.
    I'm sure most of you use WinZip as your main arsenal for zip and unzip files. In XP, the built-in zip function is a bonus for you. Another great tool is WinRar for Windows users. Now, RAR format is widely use because of its small zipped size. Yes, it's the "Software Review" day and i hope you're hungry for some great freeware today.

    IZArc and 7Zip is the best freeware zip tool for you. Handling over 50 zip formats, you can forget those paid version of your existing zip manager. Plus, both can read fairly fast media images such as ISO, BIN and IMG. In the good old days, we (*cough*) used ARJ pretty heavy and we love it. By using IZArc, i can handle my old zipped ARJ files with ease and fast unpacking.

    7Zip is super cool for unpack a multi-part RAR. With multi-OS support, 7Zip can be run on GNU/Linux (Debian, Fedora, Gentoo), FreeBSD, MacOS and Windows plus for BeOS, don't worry, it runs nicely on BeOS. I've tested both for typical zip format such as ZIP, ACE, RAR, ARJ and TAR. Just drag and drop to achive feature will make WinZip users feel at home in seconds.

    For me IZArc is much more customize in terms of selecting zip formats but if you want to go for maximum zipped file, use 7Zip and you will save plenty of disk space. Who said freeware is not good? Hey Lizz, lets play some tag game. I'm tagging you to use 7Zip for a week and give us your review. Tag...you next.

    Americans are cowards!
    No, i didn't said that. My friend said that to me yesterday. We had a nice talk about the Fifa World Cup 2006 and he told me that when it comes to sports, Americans are cowards. Before you start slashing me off, please read on.

    "Why are Americans cowards?" i asked him. "Just look at their world championships. They have world champ for wrestlings. They have their own world series." he told me.

    "So, what is the problem?". "Didn't you know, the call it world championship but they are not playing against any country!." he told me with a chuckle and my donut in his hand. "They just play against cities or group."

    Then he made an imitation of a sports announcer.

    "The world wrestling champ goes to The Rock from Californiaaaaaa...!!!!"

    Ermm..make sense to me. How can they be the world champ if nobody from any country in the globe compete with them? Can i call my blog as the World Blogger Champ? "Believe me, they are not so good at sports so to protect their ego, they invented the world champ title." was the last sentence from him before another donut of mine end up in his tummy. Grrr.....

    It's because of race.
    Back in the old days in a land goes by the name of America, only white man can be racist. When they saw an Afro-American, most likely they will spit on them. Pitty Afro-American. Some, went for more extreme action such as hanging Afro-American just because of their race.

    Now for the good news, everybody being racist. Yup, Afro-American sees an Arab and they spit on him. Ermm...trying to get even eh dawg? Arab sees a Jews and spit on him. Nowdays everybody spits on each other and the country that started the "spitting-game" spits the Muslims.

    Now, this is not about being a racist anymore it's being mono-religion action. Nowdays, Muslims spits Jews and the Jews spits at...the rest of us. No, i'm not a racist or sort, just being sarcastic.

    We're too busy spitting on each other we forget about Darfur, Somalia, Africa. We tend to forget about the wars with no purpose in it. We forget about the killing of civillions in Palestine and Myanmar. We are too busy blogging, we forget about kids in Afghanistan with no education. We are too busy making money, we forget about who bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We are too aragon, we forget about the landmines in Bosnia, Serbia and Vietnam. We are too busy watching the world series, we close our eyes regarding bird flu. We are too busy watching football world cup 2006, we forget about our soul.

    How often do you feed your own soul? How do you take care of your inner-self? Or we just "holier than thou"? Think about it and please leave your thoughts.

    Security gadget unsecured!
    Short post about your security camera. With some help from Google, you can play with the actuall security camera! Beware, it's illegal to play around with it. You have been warned.

    To hack into those unsecure security camera, just use Google and sometimes people do weird thing infront of the camera. Some, just drop their clothes and had sex in front of the security camera or maybe they don't realized it was there.

    You can zoom in, zoom out, pan, lift, move and do whatever you want to do with it.

    Alky:Converts your windows neatly.



    Alky is a tool that allows you to converts a Windos EXE to MacOS or GNU/Linux binary stack. At this moment, Alky are focusing on high-end gaming (good news for gamers). This open source tool is different (they said) from WINE without API's hickups.

    I can't give the details yet because i haven't had the time to test Alky. Heck, they even didn't release it to the public yet! When Alky is ready, i'll try it to convert my Command And Conqure game to GNU/Linux.

    Working directly with binary, it's hard to "learn" the apps converted to GNU/Linux or MacOS but Alky seems to do well at binary language. Alky only runs on Intel Mac and i suspect this is due to core of the chip is widely use (and becoming more for Mac's). Not much info about this tool tho and i'm walking in circles.

    What about GNU/Linux? Will Alky works on AMD chip sets or will i see more "Made-for-Intel" from them? Check out Alky (al-kee) for more info (not much of course)

    Look i just kill a fish.
    My little nephew just murdered a fish. I asked him how did he kill the poor gold fish. "I just drown it in the water by adding more water." Kids nowdays...grrrr.

    I'm sure the fish was a happy swimmer when they saw more water coming in but nooooo....somebody decided to drown them with it. That's not how my nephew kill those poor fish. That little lad add ice cubes into the fish tank and after 20 seconds, he add some hot water! Uhh...instant mummified for that poor fish.

    Adding some hot water after the ice will kill not only the fish but also the African lion for God sake.

    Can we survive the "hot water" effect in terms of blogging? How about the "ice effect"? Can bloggers make it to see the sun tomorrow? What hot and ice effect? Figure out for yourself, i'm not telling you any.

    Ok, i'll tell you. For me, more blogger are writing about things they don't completely understand. For example, a blogger that loves cat decide to write about GNU/Linux. Sure that guy can copy and paste article from the internet but in the long run, can he stick to that topic? If that guy really know what he just wrote, i'm fine with it but what if it's the other way around?

    The original topic or theme is the "hot water" or "ice cube" or it can be both at the same time. Writting about things you are not really into is what this whole post about. It just like a comedian with a bad joke and try to go along with it. I know i'm talking riddle but it seems no easy way to explain it to you.

    Don't buy beauty magazine just to read their "Lose weight" column.
    Do you realize those "Lose Weight" articles are the same with one another? In my hand right now, i have 4 magazine showing readers how to lose weight. After ten minutes, it only come down to 2 way.

    1. Eat less.
    2. Workout more.

    Now, someone actually bought those magazine (yes, 4 of them)! Don't you feel like being cheated? The person who bought the magazines want to cut down those inches will find out they are the same tips. Happy workout.

    Who change my tooth brush?
    Technology are getting faster and it evolves so fast even my tooth brush evolves. Who the hell invented the electrical tooth brush? Why can't they leave the simplicity of the tooth brush alone!

    See how fast technology leaving us behind. Heck even after turning my computer, i know the computer is learning something behind my back!




    Toys...oh boy. Remember how fun it was to play with sharp pointing metal? But kids nowdays are playing with rounded-corner-interlocking Lego. Ooo...that is so not fun. Remember how our parents forced us to play with the wooden horse? That was fun right?

    I remember the good old days where encouraging our friends to hurt themself still legal. Really, it was legal back in the 70's but now we can even smack our kid at the back. Yes, the goverment actually formed a Child Act...that is not fun. Back in the 70's, we can encourage our friend to hurt themself and nobody will shout at us. If my friend is playing on the swing i can legally tell him to go faster and higher and when he reach the highest heights, i'll thell him to jump.

    Linux, iPod, Vista, Wii, PSP and more weird names keep on coming. Heck, i still trying to figure out what's wrong with Windows and a new version of OS already on sale. Just install Linux and a new version just relesead to public. Same goes for Playstation, i'm not even half done reading the manual and they already selling PS3.

    Can we press the pause button for technology?

    I'm not listening to your music dad!
    Yesterday, a friend of mine brought his son along. So we talked about the good old times; picking up girls, trash talking at nerds and stuff. My friend started to talk about the music we listen to and for sudden, his son said "That sucks!".

    My friend and i listen to heavy metal pretty much and his son is more into those hip-hop rap music. His son told us about how uncool it's to listen to old school heavy metal rock and roll music like Purple, Flyod or Hendrix. Ermmm.....what will happen if my daughter grow up?

    There i am playing my old Purple CD when i'm 75 while my daughter sitting next to me mocking me silently. I can imagine the whole scenario when Smoke On Water is playing. "Dad, that sucks!. Try listening to some trance techno music for a change." Nobody mocks the Purple!

    The reason i wrote about my friends' son because as a blogger i need to step one step futher then my readers. Readers are not idiots and they can bring down my blog in seconds. Blogging about the same monotous topic will make readers take wings and fly away.

    Try to be different--that was repeatly stated but hard to do. Being different IS hard unless you blog about something specific. For me (and the rest of us) i just can't stay off from other topics that came across my mind. I'll write about almost anything and i do enjoy it.

    Can you stay focus with on topic? Not me and and not planning to do so. Unless my blog title is "Making money from internet", till then, i'm off topic.

    Mel Gibson runs as Governor?
    Some fanatic fan of Mel Gibson is trying to get Mel to run the house if Governor Schwarzenegger decided not to run for re-election.

    Reading Mel's blog is interesting. Even if both of us are not the same religion (i'm a Muslim), still, his view about things are interesting and sometimes shocking. I don't have to disagree to agree (vice versa) with his view and i do respect him and his view. Being one of the top actor in Holywood, i'm sure plentty of fan loves to see Mel as governor.

    Hack of the day--PECompact (Win only).
    Today i'm going to give you a tip on how to save your disk space from those huge bulky software or game. Why not keep it small and compact? PECompact is the right tool to compress those bulky software or game laying around your hard drive. You can get their trial version or Student Version but i'm going to use Student Version for this tutorial.

    First off, what is PECompact?

    PECompact is an advanced Windows executable compressor. Executable packers compress executable modules (EXE, DLL, etc..) so that their physical size is considerably smaller. At runtime, compressed modules are rapidly decompressed and reconstructed in memory.

    Used on Google Desktop, DivX Player 6.0, µTorrent, and hundreds of other popular titles, PECompact has real-world exposure and testing beyond competing products. With PECompact, you can rest assured your compressed software will be trouble free. - via Bitsum


    It's fairly simple to use PECompact but i took some time to make a flash tutorial for you. Click here to view the tutorial.

    If you hate command-line compressor like UPX (which is great tool), PECompact's GUI is easy to master. Hope this tutorial helps you in saving more space in your hard drive.
