WZ is showing evidence that he's actually understanding what we're telling him, first of all he's now able to perform the 2 step process to store a spring loaded auto deploy light.

As you can see, mommy was especially delighted that WZ was able to handle the thing. Then there's this incident, where WZ is able to retrieve wat I ask him to!

I'm sure you can figure out why the toy is given such a name when you finish the video.

A friend got me this petit Bluetooth adapter while he was having a vacation in HK.


Unfortunately, due to the fact that I'm guessing there's no industry standard on how much clearance there must be between the USB port and the casing they couldn't make the thing sit flush in the connector.


Sure it's pretty hard for something this size to snag on something but there's always a chance....

This is of course the same petit dongle you can get over at Brando's.

So, the previous example of using the DeepZoom feature of Silverlight 2.0 wasn't exactly great and didn't show the potential of the function. But now.. here's a better example. First of all if you don't have Silverlight 2.0 installed yet.. go install it first cause Silverlight Streaming doesn't yet properly automated the Beta's installation.

The demo is here, it'll open up in a new window. Controls are still simple cause I have no time to change the previous code, so.. Click and Drag to move around the picture, Left Click to Zoom In, Shift + Left Click to Zoom Out.

My colleague came across an interesting problem with a mobile web portal he was working on. It was the typical problem description that you'd get when you work on mobile web portals, something that worked on other phones weren't working on another phone. Only thing was, the phones that failed weren't dumb low end phones, but a Nokia Series 60 N73 smartphone. I wrote down my little adventure finding the solution.. it's a full page of text so only continue if you're interested.

Malaysia just had it's general election last Saturday.

It was interesting to note that it's probably the first elections where the Internet played a heavy role as well as the traditional media channels and of course.. SMS propaganda. Much were flung around by supporters of both sides. How much of it is true? I have no idea, but I'm wary of any thing without proper proof from both sides.

The opposition won a lot this time around, and we're headed from some interesting times for the next 5 years, so... we'll see how lar.
