Stupid names

Posted: 26th October 2007 by Jacky Yong in Current Affairs

What has the world come to? Has creativity come to its all time low? Has the big shots of big companies ran out of budget for their image consultant? Or has the world has just gone cuckoo? I’m taking about the really uncreative names that has cropped up in commercial businesses around the Klang Valley […]

I read with intrigue an article submitted by a friend: Explanation of Ubuntu Hard Drive Wear and Tear It says that from Feisty onwards, Ubuntu has been using the hard disk’s power management feature to spin down the hard drive, in an attempt to save some juice on your laptop battery. However the powering down […]

My house is now certified XP free!

Posted: 21st October 2007 by Jacky Yong in Computers, Silly me

With the demise of the last remaining computer in my house from using Windows as the main OS, I am now a proud owner of two happy Ubuntu machines! Couldn’t be more happier! It started a bit scary at first, my main hard disk containing all my photos, suddenly couldn’t be mounted! It complained that […]

Solution : Why doesn’t my theme or module show?

Posted: 21st October 2007 by Jacky Yong in Computers

Arrgghhh!! I have answered my own questions again! Earlier today I have decided that Drupal 5.3 is not compatible with the themes that I have wanted. Read link here I couldn’t be more wrong! After much reading, the reading was actually related to the permission of my folders. All I had to to is to […]

Solution : Why my content does not display normally

Posted: 21st October 2007 by Jacky Yong in Computers

Remember the problem with my Drupal when I wanted to create a new content? Well, the problem not only affects content creation, it affects anything that is related to blocks that expands and contracts on clicking, which includes the pathauto page configuration.

Theme not showing at all!

Posted: 20th October 2007 by Jacky Yong in Computers

What’s happening? Why isn’t my themes in Drupal showing anything at all? I have just installed Drupal 5.3 into my host server, and everything looks good to go! I’m excited to get my new site up and running. So installed the standard stuffs like PathAuto, Token and Update_Status. Then downloaded some themes that I like, […]

Erick and Jess – an Autopsy

Posted: 19th October 2007 by Jacky Yong in Computers

FUN. That’s what I would describe it as. Perhaps due to the fact that I have not seen Pui Kuan (Jess) for such a long time already. 2 years maybe? Maybe more. She hasn’t changed a bit, still the happy cute girl that I used to know while working in Infortech many years ago.

I have just upgraded to Drupal 5.3!!!

Posted: 19th October 2007 by Jacky Yong in Computers, Silly me

I was so taken away at just how absurdly simple everything went! The earlier problems that I had, all gone! I just followed the simple procedures in Drupal’s website and everything just fell into place! Let me recall what I just did: 1. Change default theme back to Garland (Drupal 5.x’s default theme) 2. Backup […]

Well, aren’t you excited? =D It’s like Spongebob meeting ol’ Gary for the first time, I feel all giddy and jumpy! Hehehe … I’m now downloading it. Hopefully my next post shall be about the new Ubuntu…. 😉 Ubuntu has never let its users down in terms of product deliverance. When they said 18th October, […]

Stupid Citibank – Bella Indulgence Offer

Posted: 18th October 2007 by Jacky Yong in Current Affairs, Silly me

Frankly I am just so fed-up with Citibank’s sub-standard offers, considering Citibank’s size and its ability to do much better than that! I am talking about the lame offers by Citibank and its equally lame affiliate Bella. See link here, if it’s not gone yet.
