Pirated Windows Warning Message

Wednesday 26 April 2006 @ 12:27 am

I’m back with a bad news to whom using pirated copy of Windows operating system. Finally, Microsoft has decided to put up a message on the login screen for every pirated Windows user.

Windows Piracy Message

Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of local PC users running pirated Windows operating systems will soon face the shame of being reminded of their illegal action every time they switch on their machines.

Face the shame? Not sure about this but I suppose the anti-piracy message will be very annoying.

This anti-piracy message will appear after the next Windows update commencing today (April 26, 2006). At the moment, only users of pirated Windows in the following five countries will experience this “new” and “special” feature, they are United States, Britain, New Zealand, Australia and Malaysia.

Well, Windows with this “special” feature can still receive software update, but not allowed to upgrade Internet Explorer to version 7 and download Windows Defender.

For more information, read the source.

Google Finance – Personal Online Finance Website

Wednesday 22 March 2006 @ 1:14 pm

I stopped blogging for 1 week or so but Google just can’t stop releasing new services. Here is another great one.

Google FinanceGoogle launched its latest service yesterday called Google Finance. It’s an online financial news portal that provides corporate news, information and graphs, and blog entries regarding the specific stock you are looking for. I believe this new Google service is going into direct competition withYahoo Finance, which I patrol quite frequently for stock information. The reason behind launching this cool service is the increase in Internet usage by investors in searching for stock information.

My First Ever WordPress Plugin – Submit It Plugin

Tuesday 7 March 2006 @ 12:09 pm

Hi everyone,

I’m so glad I finished my first ever WordPress plugin today. I named it Submit It.

Submit It WordPress Plugin

Submit It is just a simple plugin as shown in the picture. You can try it out at the end the written artile in any post. The plugin will insert some pieces of codes in every single page to show the links. Basically, the plugin allows you or your readers to submit a particular post of yours and bookmark it at any of the popular blog services as linked in the plugin.

I saw these links in quite a lot of blogs but have not seen any plugin for it. So, I created myself after one of my blog buddies, n305er sent me some of the basic codes. Submit It plugin was created with “easy to use” goal in mind. You just need to put only 1 line of code into the PHP file and start using the plugin.

I will write a detail tutorial of installing this plugin later in a separate page so that everyone can freely download and install it into your WordPress blog.

By the way, I’m not a PHP programmer expert, so if you find any bug or problem using the plugin, please let me know. Fell free to tell me your opinion about this simple plugin as well, like do you find it useful?
