My weekend, yo!


Since I have this app for Blogspot, let me put it to good use.

It has been a good weekend although I have not achieved what I intended too such as putting up the picture frames in my new home or to actually do some cleaning and also to take my phone to a DiGi shop because my phone is acting up. Funny thing is, although I am hooked on gadgets, the gadgets just don't seem to last. Sounds like an irony doesn't it.

But anyway apart from the non achievements, I have to admit that I finally made it to one of my teams' "makan-makan". It was a good seafood joint in Klang and the price was reasonable. The only qualm I have is about the service; it took us 3 waiters before we could have our Chinese tea filled up and also to get some ice cubes. Otherwise, this joint seems quite okay. The place is called Bagan Seafood and it is situated quite deep into the estuary.

I believe GPS can get you there but not mine because I believe my GPS is racist and refused to take me to Tanjung Harapan but instead kept taking me to Tengku Kelana (where little India is) it felt as though the GPS was saying, "no, no Indian boy, this is where you belong! Your 'peoples' are here!"

But either way, it was a good weekend. Looking forward to the next to complete my chores!

To cancel or not to know what... F it, just cancel.

So now we are going to block several websites under the banner of piracy of which some of the sites are bona fide file sharing sites.

The choice to ban piratesbay, fine, I can live with that, the name says it all; but again, that is censoring the Internet. Why have we become the moral police when it is the job of the producers of the software, movies, TV series to get in touch with these sites (mega upload and fileshare included) to remove the content due to infringement. I just read that RIM is happy for the move. Why wouldn't they be, less work for them.

To be very honest I am heavily against piracy of the local music industry because I was once part of it and till this date, I still buy original local albums.

However, by banning these sites, it does not solve the problem. Producers need to be proactive in removing the content. It is your share which is at stake, bloody work to secure it. You don't just sit there and watch your house get robbed now do you? Also, blocking these sites look like, nevermind the robbers, let's just focus on putting guards in front of the house and ignore the back alley (this analogy is based on the fact that proxy bypasses will still help you get to blocked sites)

So, now, by them banning all these file sharing sites, should I just cancel my broadband subscription because without any uploading and downloading of large files (forget about emails, they have a limit) I might as well go back to my dial up; as text and pictures don't require much bandwidth.

I am still wondering though, how come youtube wasn't blocked... I am pretty sure there are movies or series on YouTube (not that I have watched any, but hey, just go look for trailers of local movies, and you'll know what i mean). But you know what, you can't ban you tube... Where would you upload semi porn videos then?!

Having said all of the above, brings me to the next big question, "when is the next general election again"?

An app for Blogspot for iPhones

Finally I found an app that allows me to blog wherever I am.

This is a cool app for people like me who have a blog and does not blog! It sounds like a contradiction.

Hopefully with this app I will be able to make more posts (if I am not lazy)

If you guys have not already heard about this app, go to your app store and look for BlogPress.

It would make your day.
