I have no time to update my blog for the last two weeks or so because of my busy days at work. But I managed to find interesting add-ons for my blog. If you notice I’ve added several nice add-ons into this blog. These add-ons are very useful in terms of functionality, and also helps to prettify the overall look of the blog. So today, I’m going to share these add-ons with all of you. And hopefully this post can inspire you to use them in your own blog. I know it’s not new for some, but I hope this can help others who don’t know this . So here we go…
Last night I watched the television with my dad. There was an exclusive news where Indonesian Anti Terrorist Special Forces Detachment 88 surrounding a house in Temanggung, near the provincial capital of Semarang, Central Java. Inside that house, there was four people. One of them, is believed as Noordin Mohd. Top. The most wanted terrorist and the prime suspect of the mastermind behind the JW. Marriott and Ritz Carlton bomb attack in Jakarta, three weeks ago. This attack killed nine people, including three Australians. He is also the mastermind behind the bomb attacks on the JW. Marriott in Jakarta in 2003, on the Australian Embassy in Jakarta in 2004 and in Bali in 2005.
I work in a world known brand’s official service center in my country. A couple of days ago, my coworker told me that our partner in Celebes Island is in trouble. They could not restore a backup they made from a customer’s Windows Mobile phone. This backup contains contact numbers, messages, tasks, appointments, etc. There is no error when they did the backup process. But somehow it refuse to be restored after the phone got reflashed. Oops…
It can be a picture of your favorite actor or actress, a picture of your family members (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, children, etc.), a funny picture from your favorite cartoon, or any picture that makes you feel happy, fun, motivated, and refreshed whenever you’re looking at it. The picture selection is important here, since you’re going to look at it every time you enter your room. If by looking at this poster makes you feel better after your hard day at work or school, then it’s a good choice. Ok, let’s go on…
Almost everyday we search something on our favorite search engines, be it Google, Yahoo!, MSN, etc. We ask these search engines to find websites that’s related or having relations with the keywords we entered. If we enter “kitchen appliances” in the search box, we will get the site lists which has some content related to kitchen and it’s appliances. I’m sure most of us already know that long time ago.
Yesterday, a friend which also my co-worker showed me a logo and asked me, “Do you know what is the name of font used in this logo? Perhaps you recognized a name? I need it for my presentation slides.” I said, “There are tons of fonts existed in this world, and there’s no way I can recognize which fonts is this. I doubt I can recognize this fonts. But I’ll check the internet.”
Then I started to search something to help him solve this problem. I found several font search engines. Where you can type the fonts’ name you would like to download (or buy if it’s not free) in the search box, and you’ll get the list of the fonts that named as what you typed. If you typed “Impact”, then these fonts search engines will show you the links to get it. But of course these search engines cannot help my friend. We don’t have a clue what is this fonts’ name. All we have is the logo in .PNG format.
After searching for more information about this problem, finally I found something new to myself. It’s a font search engine based on how they look in an picture file. I didn’t know this thing exists. Neat huh?
Some time not too long ago, Apple just released the new iPhone 3G S. It drives all iPhone maniacs crazy. Some even camped for days in front of the store just to get one of the first iPhone 3G S. So what is the difference between this brand new iPhone 3G S and iPhone 3G? Here’s the list from Apple’s website.
This morning, I rode my motorbike to work as usual. The traffic on the way to the place I work was awfully jammed. The city where I live is well known for it’s traffic jam. For some reason I felt different today. I didn’t know what it is. But I didn’t think too much. I just concentrated to the motorbikes and busses around me. Keeping me at the safe distance from them. Sometimes I think driving cars and especially riding motorbikes here has no difference with Fear Factor TV program. Pumping up your adrenaline and can push you to the limit where you’ll say, “OK, I really want to punch this jerk in the face!”.
Playing Mafia Wars in Facebook is very addictive for a lot of people, including me. A few days ago me and my friends played together. We exchanged loots, collections, etc. And then we compare our earned achievements. There is one achievement called “Spreading it around” which can be earned by gifting loots, weapons, armors, vehicles, or even collections to your mafia friends. It must be done 501 times where every item counts as 1. So when I give 5 Grenades to my friend, it counts as 5.
Sony netbook VAIO W Series for $500? Hmm… A good price to offer in the middle of “netbook war” in the worldwide netbook market. This netbook has a clear view XBRITE-ECO™ LCD Technology 10.1″ LED-backlit display, with 1366 x 768 resolution, while others still use 1024 x 600.
