Finally…upgraded my wordpress to the latest version. Was at version 2.2 for a many long days…couldn’t find a theme that I like and don’t really like the image uploader feature in the new version, hence delaying the upgrade.
Need to add Facebook LIKE BOTTON to my blog, so have to upgrade my WordPress. Old version is not supported.
Upgrade was easy and straight forward. Basically just need to backup the config file and images folder. That’s it.
How’s the WordPress 3.1? I think it is definitely very nice and smooth. Interface is clean and easy to navigate. Plugin and theme installation is very easy and just within a few clicks in the WordPress admin itself (FTP username and password required). The coders of WordPress is definitely very very good! I just wished my online shop admin interface is just as smooth…
Found a quite nice theme – GIRL. Changed some colours and I think it is good to go live.

Read this news at The Star:
22 sites, blogs investigated by MCMC
Deputy Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Joseph Salang Gandum told Senator Sharifah Azizah Syed Zain in Dewan Rakyat on Monday that out of those blogs investigated, the commission had also forwarded three investigation papers to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
“Most of the blogs and websites are being operated using platforms from overseas and efforts to obtain evidence necessary for action often come to a dead end.
“Therefore, it’s very hard to take legal action against these blogs,”he said.
Since my blog is just a personal blog, I guess I won’t be in that 22 sites list (there are hundreds thousands of blogs out there), but they have raised an interesting issue of blogs hosted oversea are very hard to take action against. I believe this includes those using bloggers.com, blogspot.com, wordpress.com or personal hosting using oversea server/hosting company.
Beside the high price of local hosting, this is a good excuse/reason to host your blog or website oversea.
Project Petaling Street website (http://www.petalingstreet.org) has been filled with SPAMS today (as of now…there are just way too many spam posts to distinguish the real blog post.
I guess spammers have found out the trackbacks URL of petalingstreet.org newsfeeder, hence sending lots of spam post to that site.
We shall see the site admin cleaning up the spam posts soon, and ban that spammer site from posting again. Hopefully there will be no change of the trackback URL.

WordPress has released their latest version of the ever popular blog software – WordPress 2.5 RC1 on 18th March 2008 (5 days ago)!
It seems to have some new features that make posting and using wordpress more fun, but I have yet to try it…backuping my site at the moment before I upload the new version over my site.
RC1 – what does it means?
With a RC1 at the end of 2.5…it means the software is not a full release yet. RC = Release Candidates, which is very close to full release, and according to WordPress team, the software is very stable and has been tested by many, and is very close or same as full release. Software cycle normally is beta, alpha, RC then only full release. So, you can see that RC release has actually gone through beta and alpha stage, so it should be relatively stable and safe to use.
Yes, I am going to install it later and post a report on it. My most wanted feature: Multiple upload – is now in the new release! I have wanted this feature for a very long time (currently using an multiple image file upload plugin which got errors after uploading). Standard feature on WordPress is definitely BETTER than plugin, and I would want to keep the number of plugin to the minimum in my blog.

I read some blogs registered at BlogMalaysia today…and in one of them I read about the latest (is it latest?) computer game called Age of Empire III.
I still remember the AOE first version, very very nice graphic and very interesting strategy game. Yes, I used to play that, together with Command and Conquer. I am not expert in these game though (one of my room mate was really good in this strategy game, set the game speed to the fastest and he can still manage to conquer).
No…I don’t play computer game anymore nowadays. Not interested anymore. My last PC game was Final Fantasy X. Spent a few months finishing the game…quite tiring and addicted. Waste of time actually…
Instead of computer games, my not so new hobby is actually computer related as well. I kinda like to spend my time in my websites (ShaShinKi, BlogMalaysia, PentaxWorld, PhotoMalaysia…etc.). Today I spent US$20 bucks to purchase some codes and improve the design and features of BlogMalaysia. I have always wanted the Browse by PageRank feature, but can’t justify to spend the money for the codes before seeing BlogMalaysia is going to last or not. I am not a programmer myself, so I can’t write the codes myself. So I will have to get some codes and modify it to my existing BlogMalaysia design. Yeah…still have to spend hours in merging the codes to BlogMalaysia, but the final result is quite satisfying.
Hope more will join BlogMalaysia…we have over 100 blogs now…and we are growing. Be the early bloggers to join us!
I don’t play computer games…I play with my websites.

Ten Ways of making a Blog Looks Terrible
By following the 10 steps below, 99% chances you will be success in making your blog looks terrible… Try it at your own risk…
1. Use default design
Be it at Blogsphere, Bloggers or WordPress, use the default design given and don’t add any new things/widgets to it. Use the default colour and layout, so that everybody that use the same blogware will have the same look as yours. Users will come and forget about your blog in no time. This is the first successor move in hit and forget blog.
2. Blog name / Domain
Create a blogname/domain url with more than 10 characters and more than 4 vocal sounds.
People will never be able to remember your domain name, even if they did, they will never spell it write (because you spell it wrong in the first place).
3. No photo, no picture
Use only TEXT in your blog. Make sure there is no picture and no text. A picture worth a thousand words? Nevermind, type one thousand words each time, don’t replace it with any picture. Show that you are a great typewriter.
