  • Blog Post: And the Oscar goes to… Live Search!

    That is a pretty bold blog title and absolutely had nothing to do with the Oscar itself. But I had very little time last night to watch Oscar, and was somewhat curious about the winners and losers. So I hit up Google and use this search term “Oscar”. Here is the front page search results. Seems pretty...
  • Blog Post: Software development process

    1) Order t-shirts for the development team 2) Announce the release date 3) Write the code 4) Write the manual 5) Hire a PM 6) PM spec the software based on the code (to ensure the software meets the specifications) 7) Ship/Launch 8) Test with real users (free) 9) Bugs are potential enhancements 10) Announce...
  • Blog Post: Help! I found a bug in my code

    Okay, after a long sabbatical from writing blogs due to various reasons (over-worked, personal reasons, or just plain lazy), I am about to begin start blogging again. My MSDN blog ranking has taken such an embarrassing tumble that I think I need to start hustling up again. So, to welcome myself back...
  • Blog Post: Code of the day: while(!asleep()) { sheep++; }

    Stumbled upon this great one liner off Bash.org (via Reddit ) just moments ago. Made me LOL.
  • Blog Post: 2¹/2²/2³

    Today is meant to be the power of two's day. 2¹ => 2 2² => 4 2³ => 8 Putting together make 2/4/8 => 2/4/08. Of course, back home in Asia and possibly in other places around the globe today is actually 2²/2¹/2³ which isn't as interesting. k. 'nuff nerdinous for the day.
  • Blog Post: Thank you Dr. Randy Pausch

    I have always enjoyed watching motivational speakers giving out some speeches or tips on how to err... be motivated in life, or help others stay motivated, or maybe motivate others. But most of the time the content of those speeches would stay with me for about a day, two at most, and then I would simply...
  • Blog Post: Media Center Haiku

    Yesterday, I received a notification from the Microsoft eHome team that they were giving out free MCE remote + IR blaster receiver for free. So my natural greed quickly guided me to their building and 30 mins later, I had 2 sets in my hand (just couldn't resist taking ONLY one set). I only have a single...
  • Blog Post: Who called me?

    I happened to check my mail last night from home and noticed a missed call notification for my work phone in my mail inbox (one great feature about phone+Outlook integration). It's from some guy with a caller ID with number 919-261-6681 on it. Hmm... who could this be? Just a few hours before , I happened...
  • Blog Post: Google TiSP and Live.com moving search box

    I knew this one is soon coming sooner or later -- FREE in home broadband services. I have to admit this is very clever and Google beat us to it first with their ingenious do-it-yourself kit which uses nothing but your toilet and the sewage line as the connectivity device. Simply flushes down one end...
  • Blog Post: Search, with great cause

    Everybody has got to search right? According to Nielsen/NetRatings report ( pdf file) , almost 7 billion searches were conducted on the top 10 Search Engine in the month of January alone (6,864,068,000 queries if I did my math correct). That's a lot of searches conducted in just over 31 days. Now, let...
  • Blog Post: Beta here, beta there, beta everywhere

    As our generation starts to march further into the web 2.0 territory and the online world starts growing, everyone is now trying to deliver their new apps into the users' hands as fast as possible. Many web 2.0 companies are now focus on getting their product out the door as quickly as they can wanting...
  • Blog Post: Windows Vista Soda

    So it looked like the whole world now know about the Windows Vista soda thanks to Wired and Digg . I can add a bit more factoid about the drink. I've been drinking this stuff on and off for quite sometimes now and I think it's starting to grow on me. The drink is made by Talking Rain, and before Windows...
  • Blog Post: Notes from Techfest and Boku Testing

    There are a few things which make the first week of March this year to be interesting, most notably: New Daylight Saving Time March Madness It's merely a couple weeks away from Spring Techfest ! As a matter of fact, I'm planning on attending either today or tomorrow Techfest session...
  • Blog Post: Jeff Bezos and his dream of space flight revealed

    As I sat and waited for my doctor appointment this morning, I came across one of the article in the March issue of Time magazine. I flipped through the pages, and stumbled across a familiar looking guy with the uncanny smile. Looking at the picture below, I could immediately recalled his infamous laugh...
  • Blog Post: New Daylight Saving Time. Are you, your system, and your app ready?

    A quick announcement for everyone -- regardless whether you are an end-user or programmers. You are probably going to be affected either way with the new Daylight Saving Time which is fast coming up on March 11 2007. Microsoft has a neat little questionnaires which you can just simply click-click...
  • Blog Post: If you are going to launch a startup, how many friends would you need?

    Once in a while, I always like to research and take down some "useless statistics", which probably doesn't have any real meaning, but interesting to waste time at. And here is one of them. I have always been curious as to how many people does it take to "found" a successful company. So I decide to dig...
