Yahoo! Instant Search

Monday, September 26th, 2005

If you might have missed out, Yahoo has introduced new Yahoo! Search interface, Yahoo! Instant Search. This new search feature, which is still in beta, find the most related result and show it instantly as soon as you typed in your keywords.

I Hate To Be Tracked By Adsense

Friday, September 23rd, 2005

As what you can see on my blog, I'm a Google Adsense user. Checking Adsense statistic has been one of the activity I did frequently. In the Adsense report, I hate to see inaccurate page impression count because my own visits are included.

Windows Vista Developer Center

Tuesday, September 20th, 2005

All Microsoft-based programmers, move, move, move! It's time to discover about developments for the new Windows Vista (Longhorn). When I was exploring MSN Search's WebLog, I discovered Microsoft Windows Vista Developer Center. Am I too late to learn about it? I think this is supposed to be the main website created by Microsoft for them who want to keep themselves updated with hows and whats of application development for the upcoming Windows Vista. Enjoy learning!

Make WordPress Post on Blogger

The main reason I switched to WordPress is the power to customize.

After spending months in blogging, I found myself began to write everything I learn in my blog with a number of posts a week. All the while, I was blogging with blogger. They are providing a very good place to blog. However, being a free service, they will never allow you to upload your files or do server-side scripting. I knew I need to get myself a blogging script. A number of very positive feedbacks from wordpress users has brought me to create this blog.
