50 million downlaods for Firefox

Firefox 50 million downloads
 
I think the picture speaks for itself, right?

I'm a mature person!

Apparently my posts at hi5 have impressed more than one.  One of my karate friends, whose logged on hi5, sent me a message telling me that I write really well.  And also adding that she's getting a bit jealous too.  Ok that was a joke but still...
 
Then my karate mentor himself told me that he now has a really different view of me.  Here are his words (more or less), "I discovered a new facet of you through your hi5 posts." When that really made me proud.

Charmed last season?

Charmed Promo
 
Is it really nearing its end? I can't believe it! I've been keeping a close look at the Spoilers and the story is getting really good.  There's only the last episode missing now but I don't think that'll we'll ever get it before the episode is actually broadcasted on tv in the US.  That is to say in a month!
 
I mean the producer hasn't even submitted the complete story lines to his boss.  Said they want to keep in secret.

We're still in hols but school already sucks!

Today I received a letter from school.  No actually, my dad received a letter from my school.  But to cut the story short, I opened the envelope, read the letter, replaced it back into the envelope and even glued the latter.  Don't you dare 'raport' mwa!
 
Anyway, school wrote to inform my parents that as from now, report books have to be collected by parents, at the school premises.  What the hell do they think they're doing? Aren't we old enough to collect our own exam results?
 
Not that I haven't worked well this past term.  In fact, I produced my best performance since I arrived to this institution, more than 5 years ago - since Form1.
 
But this rector - rectrice - is really pissing us all off.  By 'all,' I mean students of course.  She such a... oh there's no word to describe it.  She an imbecile, moron, cretin, changeling and other words that I prefer not write here.  Does she think that parents have nothing to do just like her.  They, contrarily to you, go to work to actually get something done, madam! Because you definetely bring your butt to work to keep it hot in your armchair, in your office 'climatisE.'
 
There's something that I have noticed this year.  The 'star schools' all have rectors as stupid as the other.  Are they competing for a prize or what? Coze there surely aren't any worst-off cases around for sure.  Here at RCPL, there's Kushiram, a minister's sister-in-law or something.  At RCC, there's Uteem's family - a woman as well.  At DMC, there's another bullshit of a woman, I hear.  At QEC... well dunno but god'll spare them if they don't have an imbecile!
 
Poor women! You've surely noticed that all of the above are rectrice.  Talking about equality of the sexes, euh? My foot yes.

Columns published!

So I finally updated Petz! at backwash.com after an absence of 3 months.  And I'm really proud of this last column.  In case you don't know, Petz is the life of my imaginary dog, PetSci.  In short, it's life from another point of view.  In this last column, PetSci describes the introduction of another imaginary dog named Hugo.  He hates him but through his sarcasm writing and funny manners, will he be able to accept his true feelings for Hugo?
 
And also Not Scientific Science was rocking at backwash.com during this past 2 weeks! And the thing is that it had the same column for these 2 weeks.  The 'famous' column was about synaesthetes, those people who can taste colours, hear shapes and all.  Maybe you should go and read it too then! Anyway, today I published a new column today about how a cluster of some atom can act as a completely new element.
The column also appears at bbc.co.uk The h2g2 Post in the latest issue of the publication.
 
And don't forget, if you have any ideas for my columns, think of dropping me a note.  Thanks in advance!
 
P.S.  Did this post really seem much like self-promotion?

Just a note

That I'm back again! I had some probs with the blog.  Couldn't get into the homepage.  I emailed the Blogger team and here it is: back to normal.
 
See you more often.

It's my blog right? 25/04

Ok everybody! Haven't written for some time and I thought you waited enough for an update.  No actually, I wanted to take a little break from K-Media but then there were a lot of other small complications which entangled with the maze of my paranomia.  Does this sentence even make sense?
 
[mum and dad downstairs watching Lion King one and a half... song: Don't tell me-Avril Lavigne]
 
Today was a cool day! We, that is to say friends from the Rose Hill Shin KyokushinKai karate group and myself, went to Chamarel's Adventure Park.  It was really great; really.  The atmosphere of teenage people 'partying' was at its climax! The entrace fee wasn't insignificant though: MUR400! And that's a discount as we went in a big group - 22 people.  The normal price for a person older than 12y is MUR950! Man, can you believe this? I mean, it was real fun and all but MUR950 is really a little bit high.
 
[brother pacing up and down in the corridor, pissing me off... song: How does it feel-Avril Lavigne]
 
The Adventure Park had some great activities.  Basically you have to walk on dancing ropes from one side to the other.  For me, the coolest activity was the last one of all.  There were 4 ropes dangling up and down, side to side, back and fro, whatever.  To cross the damn thing you had to walk on the 2 bottom ropes and hold the 2 higher ones.  Seems easy? But it's not exactly that easy though! I was doing the acrobat stuff with a friend and the interesting thing when you work in pair is that you actually have to work in pair!  Because when the guy falls or even loses his balance the ropes get all 'excited' and hell, you fall as well; at least if you're not prepared.  And of course when you fall, he'll fall as well.  Cool!
 
But again what I thought was really cool about the Adventure Park was the atmosphere.  We were all teasing each other and laughing and... damn it was a cool day.  I feel so sorry for the people who have to go to tuition at 8.30 a.m tomorrow to do Chemical Energetics! Good luck, gal.
 
I almost forgot that the day didn't end just then.  After Adventure Park, we went to the beach, more precisely at Tamarin.  The sea was great.  Optimum temperature and yet only a handful of swimmers from our group.  I can't understand how people can go to the seaside in a real sunny day and yet manage not to have some crawls in the sea.
 
Well after Tamarin, it was Plaza again.  Everybody seemed happy but maybe a little tired.  However instead of taking the bus, I walked all the way home.  About 25min away! My 'nisa' was most probably at its highest.  (For you guys who can't read creole, 'nisa' is the pinnacle of joy, excitement and joy-de-vivre, without the intermediate of sex.)
 
And oh, a tiny last thing.  Mo crowre mone crak mo lipied badly! Hurting with every step I take.
 
May hi5 welcome me as I welcome thee.  Maybe I'm just a little out of my mind.
 
[i think that my world is utopia!... song: Fall to pieces-Avril Lavigne]

Liverpool FC into the semis

Yes, yes and double yes! Today in the early morning, the final whistle was blown by the referee.  The score was 0-0.  But on aggregate, Liverpool FC win 2-1 thanks to their amazing home performance back home at Anfield Road in Merseyside a week ago.  So what?
 
Man, have I told you that I'm a huge Liverpool FC fan? Has been since I was 6 I think.  Anyway back to the match.  Actually I have to admit that luck was on our side.  Juventus are about as strong as Liverpool FC but their problem is that they are afraid to attack.  Football is a game where the team which has scored the most is declared the winner but ironically Juventus - and most other Italian side - prefer not to concede rather than try to score.  They are dangerous when they counter-attack and even had a ball strick the post to be saved seconds later by the Liverpool FC keeper off the line.
 
And Juventus only had to win the game 1-0 to pass through to the semis.  They couldn't score because a football team cannot be afraid to attack.  Afterall the best defence is attack.  For now, come on Chelsea FC!

My message to backwash

When I came to backwash, about one and a half years ago, I thought it was a cool place with great columns - it still is.

But now that I form part of the 'inside' of backwash, I realise that the site has not progressed since then; in fact it seems to have deteriorated. Many of you will not be happy with this thought but that's what I think.

For instance, let's take today when I published my column. I had to wrestle for about 20min just to get that damn writing published! I had all sorts of problems with bw not wanting to load the pics and all. Before it wasn't like that, was it?

To me, the deterioration process started the moment the new social network was released. Don't ask me how it fits all, I don't know. Ask Ringy. But he's probably too busy.

Backwash was the place where I started writing science. My writing has evolved since then - although I'm far behind many of my fellow columnists here - and I don't want to see the site dead! But the way it seems to be heading...

As you might have realised, I am not at all happy with the site at the moment. And leaving backwash is definetely on my mind right now. I am not threatening anyone but maybe I'll stick around for a month or two unless the site gains back its prestige. Only then will I be proud to form part of this family.

Liverpool new UNofficial kit!

The new UNofficial Liverpool FC home kit 2005-2006 has just been released exclusively on K-Media! Liverpool FC have desosiated with Reebok and made a partnership with Puma.  Now the question is: "Is this kit better or shity?"
 
It's Puma man!!!
 
UNofficial LFC shirt
 
Note: As you might have guessed, this post is pure fiction.  Posted because blogger had nothing else to do.

K-Media: an update

So, everything is going on fine with the new false sponsor project.  I even created a couple of Puma banners more so that you don't get bored with the same advertisements.  Unluckily no animation in the ads, not even a GIF animation because I don't have the required program.  But if you know anything about that particular GIF animation program and where to get it, please drop me a note or post a comment.
 
Thanks.

K-Media: new project

I've thought about this for some time and said to myself, "why not?" I am refering to the advertisement you'll notice at the bottom of K-Media.  Yes, Puma is advertising.  But they don't even know about that!
 
That's the project.  I place a different company's advertisement on K-Media every month. Keep in mind that the advertisements are unofficial as I am even designing the company's banner.  And I'll even try to optimize my posts so that they accomodate the advertiser's status.  Don't understand? Just read my posts for this month and see whether you can spot "Puma is the best" or "Try Puma and you won't regret it." Of course the comments won't be so obvious but if you search for them, you'll find them.  But if you don't it means that I'm the best copyeditor in the world.
 
That's just an experiment by the way.  We'll wait and see! Feel free to comment.

The Lego world as seen by BBC

It's official!!! Lego® is the best plastic product ever made.  This does bring old memories back.  Remember when you built your first Lego® house? Or the Lego® car? The power of Lego® is that it relies on the user's creativity rather than the product's creativity itself.  Because let's face it! What is Lego®? A simple plastic brick.  It is the user who fits the bricks into one another to create a special something.  Lego® is like drawing but the lines are the bricks.
 
Lego's Bionicle series
 
The BBC News Magazine has an article about Lego® and its vulnerability.  The title asks whether Lego® is losing ground to computer gadgets.  And to my surprise, the article - and thus the BBC - seems to be siding to the fact that Lego® is NOT in real danger.
 
But the author of the article seems to have based his entire research on one people/company: Tania Williamson, Lego®'s PR manager! Is this really good journalism? I mean of course, Lego®'s PR will say that Lego has a future in the toy world.
 
Why not go out there and interview children? Ask them and not Lego®'s PR, right BBC?

Watch yourself draw... your own drawing

Art.com's artPad is amazingly cute and interesting to use.  Draw something, anything and then watch how you moved paintbrush/pencil (which is in fact mouse at your place) to do the drawing.  One more thing: you can actually send the picture-in-progress to a friend.  No attachments or anything but only a simple link.  Because in addtion, artPad saves your picture-in-progress on the server so that anyone can access it from the internet.
 
The only minor pitfall is that with a slow dial-up like mine, it takes about 10min to load the thing so that you can actually use it.  It's no big deal of a problem for me though because I use FireFox, which has the power of tabs.  Meaning that I visit a multitude of website simultaneously.  Not much waiting afterall!

BBC News website editor's desktop

Pete Clifton
This is guy isn't just anybody.  Pete Clifton is the editor of the BBC News website and here, he chronicles this working life at the BBC.
 
The great thing about such companies, either public or private (like Google) is that they quickly the understood the power of blogs.  And the friendly way of blog writing.
 
For example when Mr. Clifton writes, you'll think that he's just a simple guy like you and me.  When Google employers write in Google Blog, they too seem to be 'normal' people with the average IQ.  But I personally don't really think they are.
 
I wonder how much training they've received before they could write this with this blog style.  Or maybe there are a lot of copyeditors who are delicately reviewing each and every one of their pieces.  Yeah, that's the whole secret.

GMail freeware: Drag-and-drop 2 store on your account

This is an amazing freeware.  It creates a virtual drive in the Windows Explorer, allowing you to use your Google GMail account as a storage medium.  It allows you to do basic file manipulation, such as copy and delete of files inside the GMail account. Because it is a Shell Extension, the interface you work in is Windows Explorer itself.  GMail Drive appears as a virtual drive under your My Computer folder in Windows Explorer.
 
I highly recommend it.  The only minor drawback is that everytime you want to send a file to your GMail account, it asks you to enter your username and password.  But I think it's worth it nonetheless.
 
And by the way, it downloads in seconds with a 40K dial-up connection.  I personally tested it.

Birthday Charmed

So! Today 150th Charmed episode airs in the US. The big thing in this episode is the guest appearance of Julian McMahon who again takes his role as Cole Turner. It appears to be a good episode. If you're in the US, watch this episode. That'll help save Charmed for an 8th season. I beg you.

1 2 3... TESTING

I've just downloaded Zoundry. Just seeing whether this thing really works.

Dictionary game

Ok, here's the game. I open the dictionary, search randomly of a couple of words that I've never heard of before and make a paragraph, which includes the words. bevy: a gathering or group, especially of girls of women. consul: an official sent to live in a foreign country to look after the people from his or her own country that live there. forsake: to desert, abandon or give up someone or something. haphazard: random of not planned. jut: to stick out Ali worked as a consul for the People's Republic of China. He was not married and always had a bevy of giggling teenage girls on his back. Did that make him a proud man? Not exactly. Ali always thought that males should forsake the female 'race,' as he puts it. Ali's philosphy was indeed that women were inferior than man and that the former had no importance at all except to be mothers. But his fans didn't mind his way of seeing things. "His life is just too haphazard," said one of them. "I just hope he would give us a smile though," added another. Ali died on the 23rd October 1987, when he commited suicide. Nobody really knew why he did it but he something was for sure: he would be greatly mourned and certainly by that girl who said, her red eyes full of tears, "His house's roof juts over the wall. He just slipped and fell and..." She broke off. Ali was an icon and yet because of his way of thinking, he had to be remembered as the biggest git that the world had ever seen. I'm rather satisfied actually. I'm sure it's not top-class but still. It isn't really bad, right?

It's my blog, right? 7/04

Actually this post is just an excuse to be on the computer, which in turn is an excuse to listen to Avril Lavigne. Don't try to understand! [dad just came back home... song: "I'm with you"] Anyway today was a rather cool day. Woke up at 06h15 as usual. First thing I did was switch on my mobile phone. And yeah we're in the modern era after all, aren't we? [dad just came to say hello... song: "Mobile"] I've been switching my mobile on the very minute I wake up since last week actually. To check text messages of course. From whom? Ruwaydah - my girlfriend. And today a message actually arrived when I swtiched the cellphone on. She was wishing me luck for my chemistry assignment that was due for midday. Had my last chemistry assignment of the term today - actually the last assignment of the whole term itself, hey. I have to get at least 25/30 to get an overall A in chemistry. I thought that it would be a difficult thing to achieve but surprisingly after I sat for the test, I realised that it was not an impossibility! But still... Many of my friends found the test difficult. And I didn't; well it wasn't really that hard. Good thing? Well usually if you think that you worked great for a test, it may mean two things: either you really did great or you are so stupid that you didn't even realise that you may well have failed the test! Let's just hope that I wasn't that bad. Of course this period of exams also paradoxically mean that the teachers are returning our past tests' answer sheets with the mark printed in red on top of it. Well today I got my biology paper back today. I revised much for this particular test; 3h in a single day, I think. When I received the paper, I saw a big 38/52 on it. That was a shock! Only 38! The friend who sits next to me had 45. That couldn't be. Although 38 was one of the top marks obtained, I wasn't that satisfied. And indeed, I was right not to be happy. The teacher had completely forgotten to correct on complete question (which holded 6 marks). At the end of the day, I had a nice 43/52 printed on my paper. Much better! Heading for A in biology as well then. [dad asking whether I can give him a 'porte-clef'... song: "Things I'll never say"] And yeah, Ruwaydah 'miss called' me during my third break at college. I called her back only to get her, to more or less reject my call. But she phoned after school when I was in the bus heading for tuition. Just wanted to hear my voice. And she also told me that she loves me, which is always great to hear. Finally back at home at about 16h30. Watched the 3rd episode of Charmed on DVD and then FullMetal Alchemist on Canal+. That's a pretty cool manga which is getting very complex. I sometimes ask myslef whether the creators actually know how the plot will end. I do think that they are just playing with it and letting it to flow. Anyway, had to listen to Avril. Pardon me but that's why I did this whole lot of ranting. And if you read the title of this post, you'll find a tiny little date. Maybe there'll be more posts of this type in the future then. Ha! Take care and stay connected if you suffer from insomnia: cause that's the cure!

New energy source is...

Nuclear? Solar? Actually it could be trees! Simple.

In fact, the future is 'now' in some Scandinavian countries, said Dr. Darwin Foster, Texas Cooperative Extension forestry program leader. "In Sweden, they're already bundling up what we're leaving in the forest after a timber harvest and using it as bio-fuel," Foster said.

GMail's birthday present - 2 us!!!

Even they tell you this: The gift that keeps on giving. What is the gift? More storage of course. GMail is upgrading from 1Gb to TWO Gb! The funny thing is that at the time being I have about 1280Mb storage. But that value will continue to grow to 2000Mb. Misunderstanding me you think? Well at this precise moment I now have 1281Mb. Yes it's getting bigger and bigger. And they are aiming to offer infinity Mb.

By the way GMail is 1 year old now and I have 1282Mb space. ROCK ON GOOGLE; AND GO TO HELL YAHOO! Beat this.

Haha Google

Google again does it's April Fool's Joke and it's sure to catch some eyes because they do appear to put some energy on creating such stuff. This one below is my personal favourite.

That's a pretty cool manga which is getting very complex. I sometimes ask myslef whether the creators actually know how the plot will end. I do think that they are just playing with it and letting it to flow. Anyway, had to listen to Avril. Pardon me but that's why I did this whole lot of ranting. And if you read the title of this post, you'll find a tiny little date. Maybe there'll be more posts of this type in the future then. Ha!

GMail is upgrading from 1Gb to TWO Gb! The funny thing is that at the time being I have about 1280Mb storage. But that value will continue to grow to 2000Mb. Misunderstanding me you think? Well at this precise moment I now have 1281Mb. Yes it's getting bigger and bigger. And they are aiming to offer infinity Mb.
By the way GMail is 1 year old now and I have 1282Mb space. ROCK ON GOOGLE; AND GO TO HELL YAHOO! Beat this.|W|P|111235873556053083|W|P|GMail's birthday present - 2 us!!!|W|P|4/01/2005 04:18:00 pm|W|P|NotScientific|W|P|
