A Bit of Geekery

September 11th, 2009 Comments(1)

I got my laptop back from fuqn Acer and the screen is brand new and gorgeous! They probably hexed my computer though, seeing as I made them do something that apparently wasn't covered under warranty for free. Even though my laptop kinda sucks, I really, really missed it!

Came back and gave Trillian a go and I'm really liking it! I used it years ago and it was really buggy, but so far it's been working perfectly for me. Other than having to rename all my contacts again, that is. And the interface is so very pretty and non-annoying, which is more than I can say for vanilla MSN. I can use MSN and GoogleTalk on it without having to open separate clients, and it works for Facebook updates too! I haven't tried Skype on it, but it's already awesome.

Am going to flash (change the firmware to the European version) my Samsung Jet soon. Hopefully it will be less useless after that. I hope I won't brick it!

New Stuff... And Stuff

All my protected entries are unviewable because I upgraded WordPress and finally had to let go of Disclose-Secret. :'( Blame this guy. He was freaking me out about security attacks and whatnot.

The existing plugins that are supported by this current version of WP pretty much suck so I can't yet be arsed to reassign permissions to the 200ish(!) protected entries. If you have access permissions, you can still view new locked entries (if I post any).

Hoo boy, it's been so long (has it been years?) since I've upgraded WordPress. I've quite forgotten what a pain in the ass it can be.

Oh yes, new layout cos I know you're totally sick of the previous one. :)

Careening Towards Spinsterhood

I woke up to 10 e-mails from Match.com this morning. And I thought someone was playing a prank on me by signing me up to a freaking matchmaking site so I was completely livid. I'm enjoying my current stalker-free status right now, thank you very much.

Well, I logged in with the password that was sent to me and found out that it costs over 50 USD to have your pathetic single status advertised to the ugly mouldy oldies in the site. Nobody would spend that to play a prank on me. Besides, that profile isn't mine. Either the woman is retarded, or she entered the wrong address. Which Match.com did not bother to verify.

Gawd.

Odex Pwned II

November 22nd, 2007 Comments(0)

The Odex website got hax0red and replaced with a notice that's all baby pink and lavender today. :P The server is now apparently down. *Giggles*

[edit]Some sources cited that the server didn't get compromised, the domain name did. *Shrugs* Either way, it's hacked.

Odex Chronicles updated.

Charging For Cybersex

So if someone hadn't told me, I wouldn't have known that you can actually charge for cybersex in SecondLife. Interesting.

Facebook

So reverie caved in and finally started using Facebook to avoid Cessy's constant badgering. :P And realised that some people really don't want to talk to her unless it's through some stupid social networking site. *Sniff*

PacNet vs Odex Case Adjourned

The appeal made by Odex has been granted an adjournment. What an anti-climax. This means that Odex has been given more time to hound the people who have not succumbed to their legal threats.

Stupid Friendster

October 02nd, 2007 Comments(5)

How the hell do I unsubscribe from Friendster? I must've clicked on the 'unsubscribe' link a hundred times and have it tell me I've been removed from the mailing list. And I still get their e-mails yet again, in all my e-mail accounts.

This Friendster phenomenon is really ridiculous. I never understood the concept of collecting 'friends' in a website. Friends are not collect-'em-all pokemon. It's superficial and annoying. Die, Friendster, die.
