On Playing NES Games In Firefox

An old post which I just discover on how you can play NES games in Firefox (needs Java) for Windows/Linux/Mac. I am already living inside the browser. Now even more reasons to stay there.

On Taken For A Ride

Another interesting documentary, considering GM's current problems with the economy.

Taken for a Ride is an amazing documentary by Jim Kleina and Martha Olson that documents the efforts to derail mass transit in America. Ever wonder why the U.S. has the worst mass transportation system in the industrialized world? Using historical footage and investigative research, this film tells how GM fought to push freeways into the inner cities of America, and push public transportation out.

On Norad Tracking Santa

image

Norad tracks Santa (www.noradsanta.org) is bypassing Singapore. Heck, it's even missed Kuala Lumpur. Santa is not too concern with bringing gifts for the children living in the big cities of this region?

On iBoobs on iPhone

This application is rejected by the Apple Store. Pity, it would be a great way to explain how the iPhone  built-in accelerometer works (tongue in cheek).

Not that I take pleasure from observing the misery of another. Actually I am. Although I think McDonalds will be in a better shape during a recession.

Add a bacon to any web site with bacolicio.us

Put a web site's url after http://bacolicio.us/ to get your bacon. No practical use at all other than to see a strip of bacon on the site. Mmmmm,... bacon.

On Linux for Netbooks

image

After almost 3 weeks (and lots of late nights), my experiment with installing another Linux distribution for my Asus Eee 900 netbook has more or less come to a conclusion. After numerous installation  (Ubuntu, Mandriva, etc), countless reinstallation and testing, I'm settling now with Mandriva One.

I had never spend so much time just on a single objective. Through it all, I must say that at least I had learn a lot more about Linux, beyond the little I had to do sometimes in my work with Unix. Linux on the client is not for the faint of heart. One can easily break the OS from all the hacks and tweaking. I can understand now why Asus's provides little option for changing the delivered Xandros OS. With different kernels, distributions, package managers, windows managers, one wonders if having so many choices (each with their own issues) is such a good thing.

What I have learned from this experience is that tough as it may be, Linux can really be a substitute for MS Windows if you are willing to spend the time learning how it works. Every application I have on my Windows PC has the same or equivalent Linux counterpart, including My Dropbox and Skype, etc. The only application I could find for Linux is the PCSuite for my Nokia phone. Hello Nokia?

The 2008 Christmas Song

image

You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
You'd better keep cash
I'm telling you why:
Recession is coming to town.
It's hitting you once,
It's hitting you twice
It doesn't care if you've been careful and wise
Recession is coming to town
It's worthless if you've got shares
It's worthless if you've got bonds
It's safe when you've got cash in hand
So keep cash for goodness sake, HEY
You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
You'd better keep cash
I'm telling you why:
Recession is coming to town!
Finance products are confusing
Finance products are so vague
The banks make you bear the cost of risk
So keep out for goodness sake, OH
You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
You'd better keep cash
I'm telling you why:
Recession is coming to town.

Thanks Karen for this email.
