Hope that you guys continue to support my blog!
Just to share with all of you, my profile page at my workplace server. I’ve given it a little bit of Schema.org treatment.

Hey there, I want to inform to all my readers that I’ve started a new blog called Frontal Lobotomy: G-Man from Alor Setar.
The new blog is about my ramblings that are not (directly) related to geek stuffs and other topics that I find interesting. Hopefully it will be as entertaining for all of you to read as this blog….
Thanks, and check it out….
There are times where I am required to calculate the day/month/year differences between two dates, which I found a little bit troublesome to do repeatedly even if it is just a simple estimate. So in turn, I created this mobile app to do the job, which greatly increase my productivity! Here i’m releasing the source code to DateDiff, which is coded and compatible with all JavaME phone:
DateDiff.jar – binary (MIDP 2.0)
datediff_src.zip (source code)
Been quite some time since I updated this blog. Here’s what happened to me since the last update:
- Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) has been released
- I’ve presented paper on Mobile Travel Guide and Location Aware App in Informatics 2009.
- My WordPress Blog site has been hit by spammers/injectors, spent roughly one week to clean the mess up. WordPress sucks, updating it doesn’t help either
- My server overloads for the 17th times last month, probably a sign that i’ve to upgrade my server
- And yes, I’m still alive, though i’ve less and less time to blog interesting things now. Wonder why? Burnout?
So what about you?
Dang seems my 6 years old PC (my Ubuntu PC) is starting to show its age, so I decided to set some budget aside to get a new computer for my workstation. I’m going to use it primarily as my development computer to develop .NET, C and java applications for mobile and embedded device. My current computer, Pentium 4 1.7GHz occasionally slows down to a crawl and plays dead on me with the amount of pressure I put on it (compiling, debugging, profilling).
I’ve a budget of around RM2.3k for a complete system without monitor. I’m looking for an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, with at least 2GB of RAM and 320GB storage. I seldom play graphic intensive game so I don’t mind much about graphic cards. What concern me most is the computer performance when I’m compiling/debugging apps.
I don’t have an exact date when I’m going to get a new PC, but seeing the amount of annoyance I’ve to face with an aging workstation, I will probably get it by the start of next year. Hopefully I could write and improves more applications once I get a new workstation.
Btw, keen readers might notice that I write less frequently nowadays, rest assured this pattern will not continue for long because currently I’m being swamped out by a lot of work that I’ve to do. I’ll be back writing at full pace after this month, and yes according to statistic — November is kinda a slow month for me.
