The best thing that happen to me. Seriously. You can explore a new world of OS other than window. Not just Ubuntu but many other Distro such as Linux Mint, Simple Linux, Oshirix and Puppy Linux. Ubuntu especially has opened up my eyes that you can do a lot of thing with your laptop and you don’t have to pay a cent for it. You don’t have to worry about trojan, virus or slow application. Because with Linux you don;t have to install antivirus or spyware because trojan and virus are designed for windows only :).
For the record I have reformat my laptop hard disk 3 times and bought a new hard disk because of Linux. Don’t worry Linux especially Ubuntu is safe and user friendly. It just me, I tried and experiment a lot of new application and format my hard disk without proper knowledge.
I know its hard to convince you to try Linux same goes with me. Adi from Oshirix has tried for 2 years to convince me to try Oshirix. Unfortunately I fell in love with Ubuntu. Anyway he still happy with it.
Starting from Wubi, where you can install Ubuntu as a new program application in your windows or dual boot which I recommend. You can google or download the manual for step by step to create dual boot with Window and Linux. You can download Ubuntu at Ubuntu.com or request for free installation CD.
Just a few days ago, my friend in India asked me to help him to purchase a software to encrypt his PHP code.
He told me that his credit card is not valid to purchase the software. He said there is rumors that some merchant don’t accept credit card from India. He offers to pay me using PayPal.
So I just followed his instruction on how to purchase the software. On the last page for payment option, I saw PayPal button. I thought he might want to scam me. So I explained my findings. To his surprise , he said that he cannot find any PayPal option on the website.
Instead he gave me his PayPal user id and password. At first i was quite reluctant since he had to give his PayPal details to me. He replied that he only have a few buck, so it will be no problem. So in the end, I just use his PayPal to pay the software.
I am not sure why there is no PayPal option on his side. Maybe its true may be not. Either way you should be careful and double check. Actually I was willing to pay since the amount is only USD 20 plus I barely know him. He is just my online friend.

I received an email from Adsense Team warning me about one of my site that have mature content. They want me to check it and to remove my adsense ad on that site. They gave me 3 days to do it. This is quite scary since my adsense is this close to get banned and this is their second warning that related to mature content.
I was not aware about the site since its been quite some time I check and monitor the proxy site. Thank God, its happen to my rarely use site. What happened if someone hack this site. That would be scary. I would need a professional help then 🙂
I would like to thanks Adsense Team for notifying this issue to me and gave me a second chance. Can you imagine if they immediately suspend my account. That would be a nightmare. Next time, I would be extra careful and will monitor all my site for sure.
