New Site!

Alright!

My new site is more or less up, and I’ve migrated all my post over to it.
From now on, I’ll be blogging from Brainfart.SG and this blog will be mothballed.

See ya at the other side!

Virtual Private Server

Finally got my VPS!
Some stock from BuyVM.net  opened up today (yesterday for you American folks) and as usual, the ultra-lowend plan ($15/yr) was snapped up way before I knew about it…
Instead, I signed up for the $3.50/mth plan and it just got provisioned a few hours ago.

Now I gonna start cleaning up my VPS and setup the LNMP stack and Postfix mail server I have in mind.
Will update my progress here. :)

A new beginning(?)

My last post was almost 2 years ago…
Woah…

I’ve let this blog sitting here that long? So much things have changed in the WordPress Dashboard, I’m almost lost there… Hah!

Anyway, I hope to start afresh on this blog. Just bought a .sg domain from Instra and now I’m looking for a VPS to host the blog and maybe an email server.
Looking at BuyVM or SpotVPS, that is, if I can get a coveted slot on BuyVM, if not, most likely I’ll go SpotVPS. Or does anyone have any recommendation?

Stickers Galore

A few post down, I talked about the free stickers from Dogster. They have arrived and I have placed one onto the lid of my laptop :)

And to add to my sticker collection, GMail gave out their own free stickers. Same procedure as the Dogster one, send a SASE (self address, stamped envelope) to them and they will send you back the stickers.

So… Not being in the land of the free, I sent in an International Reply Coupon (IRC), a self addressed envelope and a note to the GMail team back in mid December and waited. And a long wait it was. I didn’t receive it back until this week. (Opened the mailbox and wonder who sent me a mail from the USA)

So here it is, the GMail Stickers.

And the deadline for the free stickers is… Today… Sorry for posting so late…

PS: I find those IRC thingy to be quite interesting. And it would be great if I could collect them from all over the world! So if you are not from Singapore and would like to collect Singapore IRC, we could do an exchange! Drop me a comment below and I’ll contact you from there. :) (Just make sure you enter your own email when you submit the comment.

Blink of an eye

Wow… Just wow…

It has been four (!?) months since I last posted anything on this blog. And it was like just not so long ago… Damn, time flies…

Well… In this four months I have started and ended my internship, school had started, project deadlines are looming and the next thing I know, term break is coming…

Will try to keep this piece of internet real estate as alive as possible… (But judging from how lazy I am… That may be quite hard…)

It’s interesting how they call it the summer vacation, when it’s summer all year round in Singapore… But I digress…

Exams have finished and the vacation has begun. (for me, at least =P)
Was a pretty tough semester, with me totally not knowing what’s going on in ST2131 Probability and CS1231 Discrete Structure. At least I’ve already studied some of the stuff taught in CS4274 Mobile and Multimedia Networking back in Polytechnic. (yay diploma!)

Hopefully I can pass my ST2131 *fingers crossed*, considering how much I screw up in my CA… That and CS1231 too.

So for this vacation I’ll be working, at Guocoland as an intern. Starting coming monday, till early august, before the new school term starts. 8:30am to 6pm daily, monday to friday. I’m not sure if I can get used to the working hours.

In another news, Dogster is giving away stickers. The catch is, you have to send in a self-addressed and stamped envelope. Fair enough, but the problem is, I live in Singapore and Dogster is based in the U S of A. Don’t think our stamp will work over there… So after a brief researching (the comments actually…), I came across the International Reply Coupon. Neat! Didn’t know such a thing exist. Basically, you buy the coupon and send it to whoever you are corresponding with. They will take this coupon to their post office (must be a Universal Postal Union member country) and exchange for the minimum postage to any UPU member country. Sweet, now I can get a Dogster sticker and slap it on my laptop.
