    New Firefox 2.0 is cool.

    Posted by CJCM on 30th October 2006

    FirefoxAre you still using IE for browsing the internet? Maybe its time to re-consider switching to Forefox 2.0, even as a standby browser in case your IE is playing up on you.

    The latest Mozilla browser is so configurable you can tweak a lot of different settings to suit your needs.

    You say you don’t like the new way to close tabs? Change them. You want Firefox to stop hogging your RAM? Reduce it. You want to save sessions when Firefox crashes? Save them.

    My Personal Computer’s Hard Disks

    Posted by CJCM on 14th October 2006

    Quantum HarddiskMaxtor Harddisk I have two hard disks in my PC. One is Maxtor 40GB hard disk while the other one is an older Quantum 20GB hard disk. Both of them had just been re-formatted, again, due to..what else….if not virus. Damn virus…never fails to make me waste considerable amount of times just hunting for them.

    I will be spending my weekend re-installing and configuring everything on my PC. The tasks are not particularly hard for me but the sheer amount of time it takes to get it done is just unbelievable. I hope everything will be back to normal by Monday.

    Have you ever had to reinstall your system for whatever reason?

    External Examiner at University Technology Petronas

    Posted by CJCM on 12th October 2006

    I was at University Technology Petronas (UTP) yesterday as an External Examiner for Final Year IT Project. That was my third involvement as an External Examiner for UTP. I have also been involved in Adjunct Lecturer program at UTP, giving lectures to IT students on specialized topic
    of IT Project Management.

    Mobile Restaurant System

    Yesterday’s session was very interesting. This semester’s projects evolved around Mobile commerce (M-commerce). I saw a lot of M-commerce projects by the final year students. Some of them had good potential to be commercialized.

    The one I was really impressed with is a Mobile Restaurant System by Nguyen Kong Minh. His project is simply impressive. The system allows you to order your foods via your mobile phone or PDA. The part that I like most is the fact that Nguyen didn’t just use mobile phone emulator like other students. His project deliverable was shown on real PDA. And it worked flawlessly for the scopes identified in his project. It even integrates to a real SMS notification system.

    Not only he impressed me with his project works. His test menu on the mobile system was also…needless to say…very mouth watering…bear in mind that we are in the fasting month of Ramadhan..he..he..he.

    Other projects that deserve a mention here also include Grade Trekker System by Jamie Tan and Mobile Bank’s Turn Number Reservation System by Khairil Anuar Abdullah.

    Congratulation to Nguyen and other students for their outstanding works. And many thanks to University Technology Petronas for inviting me as part of the External Examiners team this semester.

    Me, Blogging, and Gadgetell

    Posted by CJCM on 6th October 2006

    Since I got involved with blogging…one of my past time activities on the net is…what else…reading blog. I came across a lot of different types of blog themes. I read personal blogs, gadget blogs, techology blogs, business blogs, make-money-online blogs, you name it..there are all kinds of blogs out there you can never read them all.

    I recently saw an advertisement in ProBlogger for a Technology Blogger at Gadgetell, a consumer technology blog that regularly writes about, “Tech News, Reviews, and Interesting Things.” I checked it out and thought…why not give this one a try so I immediately shot an email to apply, referring them to this blog and PDAs Review as my ‘referees’.

    To my surprise, within a week of my application, I received a “Welcome to the Gadgetell Team” reply from Doug Berger, the Editor at Gadgetell. I was floating in the air for a while….and landing to the ground a few moments later I realized that I have started a new chapter in my life.

    I quickly replied to the email with all the necessary information requested by Doug and another few days went by. Yesterday, I finally received my login ID to Gadgetell with the instructions of how to post at Gadgetell.

    I immediately work on my first posting and upon scouring the net, I stumbled upon a nice gadget that I like and thought why not feature this gadget in my first Gadgetell post. I searched for the device in Gadgetell and there was no post featuring this baby yet so I quickly spent the next thirty minutes on my maiden post.

    The submitted post however must be approved by the Editor first so I was waiting anxiously to find out if they like my first post. Today when I visited Gadgetell, I couldnt be bothered to scroll down to see if my post was there, I just typed ‘iWear’ in the search box and hit enter. It took only a few seconds to show the results but I felt that must be the longest wait I have ever experienced for a search results to show.

    Ta…taa…..there it was….the title “Grab attention with iWear for iPod Video” looked so familiar, still fresh in my mind because it was only yesterday I had worked on it.

    I hope you enjoy this posting and will regularly join me at Gadgetell as well to find out what is the latest thing happening in the gadget world.

    Thank you Gadetell for accepting me as one of your Technology Blogger.
