New Baby In The House

Mr Ajiz remarked that this website is only active when there are births… sadly that seems to be true. Anyway, according to Thrasher, our own in-house mythology expert has been blessed with another child. From the Yahoogroups post:

Assalamualaikum,

April sekitar waktu Asar. Anak dan isteri sihat.

Salam

  • Heroes and Villains

    In the spirit of the Season 2 premiere on StarWorld last Tuesday, I would love to share with you a little something most Malaysian viewers don’t know, or at least my circle of friends. It was said that prior to any episode release of Heroes, or every Tuesday, (maybe this is only applicable during the Writer Guild strike) NBC releases a short comic as supplement information about the series. Some calls this Graphic Novels, I just think fans will run away when they hear the word novel. I think most of the series explain more on the character building of each hero/villain.

    The best compiled list of the comics can be found on a wiki page, here and here. The list might not be up-to-date, (1 or 2 days) but the list is more organized if you want to download all at the same time (say FlashGet). Otherwise you can look for them in NBC’s official website, here. Note that the comics for season 1 starts from 1 to 51, while season 2 starts from 52. Currently they (NBC) are still publishing the comics, latest addition was number 69.

    Enjoy the comics!

    p/s:  watch out for the new Knight Rider this February on NBC!

  • GMail tips

    You guys remember when we were forced to change notes or articles on our classroom notice board every week or so? It’s been almost 2 months since the last post! hahaha! Come on, guys!

    Don’t you just love using GMail? I first got my invitation from ‘Pembunuh‘ (thanks bro!), thinking that it’s on ‘invitation only’ basis, I accepted and completely forgot about it. Not until I realized the ‘group-by-subject’ feature eased the pain of going through ‘thread-like’ discussions, in conventional email inbox, that I thought of moving on to GMail. The rest is history.

    There are lots of neat features embedded in GMail, but they are useless if we do not make use of them. I’m not getting into all of the features, but I’ll start with the not so common ones I usually use. These will also work with your @mckk9296.com email account (provided you use the webmail version).

    1. Your GMail account alias
    The alias (or call it what ever you want) I’m talking about here is like an alternative email address for your original profile. No, it is not like you create another email, because it will go to the same inbox. For example, abc123@gmail.com is the Abu’s email address, I can send an email to abc123+cikun@gmail.com and the email will still be sent to Abu. (Note the bold +cikun after the abc123)

    What the f@#k is this feature helping me? There are many helpful ways you can benefit from this. One of them is tracking your source of spam. For instance, if you register in Friendster, you put abc123+friendster@gmail.com as your email address, you can easily apply a filter (and automatically assign the filter to label Friendster) without the hassle of identifying the source of email – because you know the email sent to abc123+friendster@gmail.com will always be from Friendster.

    So what does this got to do with spam management? GMail has a good spam filtering, yes, but this way you can identify the culprits giving away your email addresses.

    2. Search function
    On the top left of the screen, just beside the GMail logo, there is a textbox for search. The common search will give you messages that contain whatever it is that you put there. However, you could also add advanced operands to minimize the scope of your search.

    is operator
    I don’t really know the full function of this operand, but I always use this to view unread messages. Available commands, is: unread, is: read and is: starred

    from operator
    This will return the message sender. For example, from: pembunuh

    label operator
    Only applicable if you have labels added to your inbox. Will return every message in that particular label. For example, label: mckk9296

    The rest of other search operators are list here. You’ll get the idea how it will benefit you.
