Last Call For Them Raya Greeting Cards!

Several hundred million people
have already sent in their addresses to which the Hari Raya
Greeting cards (actual one that you can hold in your hands and
read, NOT those e-cards that you get via email) will be sent to.
It’s still not too late to send in yours if you still haven’t.
Read my earlier posting on The Eid Greeting Card Initiative
to clue yourself in on what it’s all about. As mentioned, it’s
open to everyone of various ethnicity and belief. If you’re a
Hindu, you’ll get a Diwali card, of course! To get y’all in the
mood, I’m throwing in some Hari Raya songs into
playlist from today onwards.

iWant This iPod

I got some serious hard-on jones over Apple’s
new iPod Photo.
But since it’s Ramadhan, I’ve got to practice restraint and not
let lust take over me into buying it right off the shelf once it
reaches our shores. Furthermore, none of the machines in my
possession has a USB2.0 or Firewire port so I suppose it can
really wait, probably till early next year after I have built my
next PC. Meanwhile, I gotta take care of this hard-on. Think
“Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day… Margaret Thatcher naked
on a cold day…”

The Eid Greeting Card Initiative

One of the things that brought me joy when I was a kid was
sending and receiving Hari Raya greeting cards via snail mail.
The last couple of years, people have resorted to sending
e-cards via email and such, most likely for it’s convinience.
At the insistence of the kid in me, I would like to indulge in
a tiny initiative to send Hari Raya greeting cards to those who
would send me their addresses (home or office) via the
contact page. Do not worry about the
addresses gathered for it will not be used to send anything else
(e.g. direct marketing materials, stalkers, Ah Longs, etc.) but
just the Hari Raya greeting card itself (or a certain other kinda
invitiation card in the future. Heh!). It’s open to everyone of
various ethnicity and belief. Just make sure you do so before
this Friday, October 29th. ;)

Re-Introducing Cybersonique!FM

Back in July last year, I did a bit of an experiment in
webcasting that was CybersoniqueFM.
While it was considered quite a success (at least by my own
yardstick), it was only limited to Windows users who had
Windows Media Player installed thus effectively shutting out
non-Windows and also non-Windows Media Player users. I have
rectified that now and am reintroducing a more universal version
of Cybersonique!FM that is non-player
and non-OS specific. The only requirement is that if you’re
behind a firewall, it needs to have port 8000 open. It currently
features some electronica and hiphop/r&b mixes by yours truly at
the moment. Feel free to try it out and lemme know how it sounds
on your end. I can’t guarantee if the stuff bleeds your ears
though. Here’s the link to Cybersonique!FM.

No More Tongkat Ali Kool Aid, Please!

If there’s anything that our local press has a knack for, it must
be their ability in making a mountain out of a molehill and barking
up the wrong tree due to their own failure to comprehend the
context and situation of things. And they’re frighteningly
consistent at it too. Check it out:
Instant Cafe Theatre’s Boleh-wood show,
Anita Sarawak’s “Seksis”,
and now Jeff Ooi’s Screenshots.
What’s worse is that when the supposed offending party responds,
they chose not to highlight it in full just so their case stands
despite their obvious lack of any legs to stand on, at least as
perceived by those who do not drink their Tongkat Ali Kool Aid.
Perhaps they deemed that there just aren’t that many people
worth making the brew to make their numbers.

The Increasing Cost Of Driving On Our Roads

Petrol prices just got hiked 5 sen per litre.
It doesn’t mean that you’re gonna get better quality fuel that’ll
make your vehicle run smoother though. Just like how the toll
rates on our premium roads got increased but the journey is still
like a being tortoise in a tar pit (which really isn’t helping as
far as fuel consumption is concerned). Heck, some of our roads
are even on the verge of falling apart.
We’re really not getting our money’s worth on the roads these
days, are we?
