When you have a baby to take care of, it becomes a little harder to waste money on certain unnecessary things, but boy does it hurt when I see stuff I want and I know it's actually a waste of money to get it. Stuff like this...

I've been writing some AJAX code recently, and while the ASP.Net AJAX Extensions have helped make things easier a great deal, when it comes to a point where I need to do something advanced and extremely funky I have to write code to manipulate the document directly.

And that's when the nightmare starts... writing DOM manipulation code is like a roller coaster, you get the feature running in IE you mood is high, then you test it in Firefox and you find out you used functions which don't work in Firefox and you come crashing down to earth. Then you get code that works in Firefox, but has problems with IE.

Eventually you figure out what works and what doesn't and your JS file is just filled with IF statements ensuring that the proper code is executed for each specific browser.

I'm just lucky we didn't promise Safari or Opera support!

Saw a pair of Windows Vista updates that might be useful for people, I suppose these would get delivered by Windows Update eventually like the last pair I posted about.

First one is another with the generic title of "An update is available that improves the compatibility, reliability, and stability of Windows Vista" Funny title among the things which are mentioned that are improved are.. longer battery life.. and shortens startup time... hmmm..

The other is "Cumulative update rollup for USB core components in Windows Vista" I'm getting this one primarily because sometimes my USB devices fail after coming out of hibernation or standby so let's see if it does the trick or not.

Why does WZ look like he's ready to plant on on his maternal grand father's nose?

This is a pretty famous Ipoh Chicken Rice shop in Jalan Gasing. My parents took me to this place to eat quite frequently when I was a kid, according to the signboard the shop is as old as I am.
