I need to write something here : )

Official Ubuntu circle with wordmark. Replace ...

Guys,

Its been a while ..yes I know. A lot of thing happen in my life lately. From Linux, car accident and new smartphone Blackberry.

Ubuntu

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.

Good Luck ! I will continue to update here : )

Trusting your online friend?

An example of street markets accepting credit ...

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.

So will you pay for your online friend ? 🙂

Beware of Pervert on Social Network

Image via CrunchBase

It doesn’t matter MySpace, Tagged or even Facebook. If you post a sexy picture online, trust me a swarm of hor** guys will try to add you and asking for your cell number.

I had this one experience when I changed my default picture in Tagged to a hot chicks just for fun. But I still put male as my gender.

After just 2 hours, I received  hundreds of messages  and friend request . WTF! Don’t they read my gender. They just get excited to see a hot chick.

Some of the messages quite nice, asking for YM id, cell number but most of them asking if I am willing to have sex with them. It just show how desperate this pervert are.

Trust me reading all the messages made me want to puke, all they can think of is sex and lust. Don’t they have any manner.

It make me think, let say you have a daughter and they post they picture online. Surely this bunch of losers will swarm your daughter profile asking for YM id, hand phone number.

So as parents you got to be aware and educate your children. Especially when posting private information online.

If this can happen to me, surely it will happen to your daughter!.

Sincerely, The Google AdSense Team

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.

Actually I use that site as a proxy website to view popular website like MySpace and Facebook undetected by your admin server. I suspected that my site has been hacked or the JavaScript code has been compromised. Because I am not stupid enough to jeopardise my adsense account by using adsense ad on a porn site.I was right, my site url has been redirect to an arabic porn forum. So, quickly I delete the domain and script.

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.
