Is Google or Yahoo More Popular?

I’ve started running some web analytics on my web access logs recently. Among other things, it enabled me to discover (blogged here), how unusually, that many search visitors who end up on my site were searching for Nokia N82. Well, there are a bunch of other interesting things about I found too. For example, I always thought that Google search…

Cars With Adjustable Engine Volume

Just came across this funny sign yesterday at a nearby neighbourhood makan place. Yes, cars have adjustable engine volumes. It’s not the size (c.c.) of the engine, but the loudness of the engine noises. Just like your radio or TV has a volume control, car engines too have a control to adjust the engine loudness. I guess that would be…

Power Failure and a Bad Weekend

This Saturday was not a good day. I went back to work twice. First, there was a power glitch that tripped our building chiller plant, causing our Data Centre air-con to trip due to no chill water supply. Then in the night, one of our servers became unreachable, which we eventually found was due to a faulty switch port. There…

Vanessa’s New Maclaren Buggy

I always through Maclaren was something about Formula 1 racing. I was surprised that the top few search matches for “Maclaren” from Google were in fact about the baby stroller company. Ok, I just learned: The Formula 1 guy is McLaren. Just slightly different spelling. Anyway, here’s Baby Vanessa out for a walk in her new Maclaren stroller. She doesn’t…

Yes, 2008 is fast coming up in a couple of days. While others are busy thinking about what new year resolutions to make (or break), I’ve also been busy getting a face lift. For my homepage-cum-blog, that is. Yes, not just a new WordPress Theme, but I’ve also ventured into Adsense¬†advertising! My homepage-cum-blog’s resolution for 2008 shall be to make…

Cold Storage is Charged

This Cold Storage is charged. With static electricity, that is. How many times have I come to this particular branch at King Albert Park and always find myself painfully zapped by static electricity. Touch this — Zap. Touch that — Zap again. Accidentally brush against someone — Zapped too! I have resolved to stop shopping at this branch. It doesn’t…

Ishiyaki Unagi Rice

Ichiban Boshi’s Ishiyaki Unagi Rice is really nice. It is eel on garlic rice in stone bowl. Comes with set items. The eel melts in your mouth. The rice touching the bowl gets slightly burnt, like in claypot rice. ‚ÄĒ Posted from my N95 Lifeblog.

The Nokia N96

What’s next after the Nokia N95 8GB? Rumoured from the Symbian Freak and GSMArena, the N96! Looks and styles like the N81, but size more of the N95. Don’t know about detailed specifications yet, but I’m sure they will be leaked out along the way. Now, I think Nokia has had their run of new releases for this festive season,…
