Switch to linux

  • 0

To the tune of "Why don't you get a job" by The Offspring - Watch the video!

My friend's running Windows
Man, he hates that thing
He gets malware every day
He has to be careful or a virus will hit
In the worst kind of way

He wants to stay safe
He works his hands to the bone
To pay for the latest upgrades
Now he needs newer hardware just to boot the OS
Well my friend
You gotta say:

You won't pay, for upgrades. No way!
No, no, Why don't you get Linux
Say no way, say no way, no way
No, no, Why don't you get Linux

To browse the web safely, caution isn't enough
To keep all the spyware at bay.
To read email, anti-viruses ain't enough
Cause Windows ain't exactly safe!

I won't pay, to stay safe. No way!
No, no, Why don't you get Linux
Say no way, say no way, no way
No, no, Why don't you get Linux

I guess you think it ain't easy switching over these days, oh no.
But hey man, free software is simple and friendly
These days!

Let me tell you about my other friend now!

My friend's running Linux and she loves that thing.
She raves about it every day!
She's got more dinero for no extra work
Cos for Linux
You don't have to pay

You won't pay, for upgrades. No way!
No, no, Why don't you get Linux
Say no way, say no way, no way
No, no, Why don't you get Linux
Oh yeah
I won't give MS money!
I always paid!
No, no, Why don't you get Linux
Say no way, say no way, no way
No, no, Why don't you get Linux

Google Calendar tip

Publish Google calendars on your web site

Hot out of the Google Calendar oven: you can now publish a calendar on your web site for viewing by anyone (not just GCal users.)

From the Settings section of a calendar, hit up the HTML button to get a Javascript for including into your site's pages. The Gcal HTML configuration tool customizes width, height, background color, title and other display settings. Except for the big honkin' self-promotin' Google Cal logo, this is fantastic for any site with upcoming events to announce.

Paper airplane building

Build the world's best paper airplane


This probably won't make you all that much more productive (unless you build paper airplanes for a living... then maybe), but these instructions for building the "best paper airplane in the world" look like a fun project for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

The step-by-step photo tutorial should make it easy, but if you're still confused, the video makes it pretty clear. I saw a paper airplane with a similar design at this year's Maker Faire, and let me tell you - those things can fly. I can't vouch for the "best in the world" claim, but I can tell you that it will probably blow away any paper airplanes the amateur builder has ever constructed. If you try it, let us know how it goes in the comments or at tips at

Flock Rocks

I have been using flock for 2 days now playing around with it none stop. Its great. The people behind it have put a lot of thought and time into it.

I can view pictures on flickr and photobucket. Blog text and pictures stright from a website without even going on the blogger website. Read news feeds and blog them if I wanted to. Drag and drop text and images. Can even store them in the brower if I wanted to. I can share links with automatically.
...altogether its pretty fun.
Have a look at the tour and give the beta a try.

Dear Comrade,

I am Prince Musa .B. Bolkiah, the eldest son of Prince Jefri Bolkiah, former Finance Minister of Brunei, the tiny oil-rich sultanate of Brunei in Asia. I will save your time by not amplifying my extended royal family history, which has already been disseminated by the international media during the controversial dispute that erupted between my father and his stepbrother, the sultan of Brunei Sheik Muda Hassanal Bolkiah. As you may know from the international media, the sultan had accused my father of financial mismanagement and impropriety of US$14.8 billion dollars.

This was as a result of the Asian financial crisis that made my father's company AMEDEO DEVELOPMENT COMPANY (ADC) and government owned BRUNEI INVESTMENT COMPANY (BIC) to be declared bankrupt during his tenure in office. However my father was kept under house arrest, his bank accounts and private properties including a crude oil export refinery were later confiscated by the sultanate. Furthermore during this unfortunate period, I was advised to evacuate my immediate family outside the sultanate to avoid further prosecution from the sultan and his security operatives, but before I could do that I was placed under house arrest by the Sultan and I had no access to phone, but I have a Palm V hand-held computer from which I am sending you this mail. Some of the guards here are still loyal to me.

Before my incaceration, I went ahead to dispatch the sum in cash with the assistance of a foreign diplomat who now resides in Europe.

The money has now been deposited as valuables into different private security and trust company for safe keeping abroad. The money where splited and kept in these countries Thailand, Holland ,Germany.
If you know you can assist in claiming and investing it, contact me fast so that I will let you know the necessary steps you shall be parting with 25% of the sum once you can carryout this successfully. A bide by absolute confidentiality, transparency and trust while looking forward to your prompt reply towards a swift conclusion of this business transaction through my email address as follows:

His Excellency,

Prince Musa Bolkiah.

WoW Prince Musa Bolkiah in my inbox... lucky me

New skype is out

  • 0

Skype 2.5 was released today. You can now Send SMS messages. A feature I like is "Chat with up to 100 people in group chats". Acquired by eBay for $2.6 billion in the fall of 2005 (dont forget it was founded by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis, the creators of KaZaA), the internet phone service is used by six million people.

Soon you will be able to send money over skype who knows what other features will be included.

Installed ubuntu 6

Downloaded and installed on the offical release day (1st of june). Although it took me a while to setup my speedtouch modem since there is no /lib/hotplug/firmware. I worked out the script has to go into /lib/firmware/.
Ubuntu6 desktop
Its a very polished linux distrobution... and lazy me has not done anything complex. Apart from installing the modem which would have been easier if I followed an updated install guide.
