My column has been republished by a sex site

I spotted this before but I just showed it to colleagues in the office and forgot about it. I got another email recently telling me that my column on porn in Globe’s mobile blogs had been reprinted by the Asian Sex Gazette. Here’s the link (it’s not safe for work and may contain images someContinue reading “My column has been republished by a sex site”

Using activeCollab to manage blog posts, article ideas

I’m spending a lot of time in my activeCollab installation these past weeks. ActiveCollab is an open source project management and collaboration script that had been described as a clone of the popular Basecamp service (but I think it’s much more than that). CREATING FORMS. ActiveCollab allows you to create forms that automatically add dataContinue reading “Using activeCollab to manage blog posts, article ideas”

Track your blog visitors’ sessions with Clicky

If you’re still waiting for that MeasureMap invitation, don’t fret. A new service has opened that will more than make up for the time (what is it now? several months?) you spent waiting for the still unsent service invitations. Clicky is a new service created “to complement” other website metrics tools. What Clicky does isContinue reading “Track your blog visitors’ sessions with Clicky”

Running a web server, WordPress on my phone

I was finally able to run an Apache, PHP, MySQL server on my Sony Ericsson K750i. I did it on my second attempt, the first was disastrous, and that’s putting it mildly, as I crashed my phone and I had to reformat its memory card, wiping out several photos I haven’t been able to saveContinue reading “Running a web server, WordPress on my phone”

Paying bloggers to write about products, services

(Note: This post is not part of the ReviewMe program). I got an e-mail early this morning from the people behind Text Link Ads (referral link). The e-mail said this site was pre-approved for their newly launched ReviewMe advertising program. I was intrigued because I never signed up for the program. I was set toContinue reading “Paying bloggers to write about products, services”

Trying out Drupal as content management system

I installed the Drupal 5.0 beta 1 release yesterday and the installation was so easy it could rival WordPress’ famous five-minute installs. I’ve long wanted to try the open source content management system and for several months now, “try Drupal” has featured prominently in my someday/maybe lists (plural because I kept transferring and playing withContinue reading “Trying out Drupal as content management system”

Upgrading Sony Ericsson K750i to latest version: R1DB001

I’ve upgraded a colleague’s K750i to the latest firmware: the much maligned R1DB001. Had we been able to upgrade her phone earlier, we wouldn’t have been faced with the option of sticking with R1N035, an old firmware that still has the USB transfer bug, or upgrading to a new one with lowered volume levels, asContinue reading “Upgrading Sony Ericsson K750i to latest version: R1DB001”

Media Temple delivers on 100% uptime promise

Media Temple’s promise of 100% uptime with their Grid-Server hosting may sound too good to be true. I initially thought that it’s chief executive officer’s statement that they are actually considering paying customers, on top of granting them rebates, whenever there is a downtime as coming close to a boast. I know better now. TheContinue reading “Media Temple delivers on 100% uptime promise”
