Catching that popup

Did anyone see a popup advertisment when loading my blog?

I was wondering where did the popup come from. I didn’t add anything robustic lately. I suspect the popup came from this post. There is something fishy about the img file.

img src=”http://www.slashmysearch.com/earn/image.php?bid=4″ width=”460″ height=”120″ border=”0″

Why is there a .php? hmmm….

Anyway, I’ve changed the image. Instead of linking directly to the website for the image, I’ve downloaded the picture and uploaded it to blogger. Do let me know if you still see a popup.

Die popup…. die….. hahahaha….

**Updates**
slashmysearch is innocent. The popup still exists after removing the image.
Strange…. so where did the popup come from??

sgblogs

Just discovered that I was being indexed by sgblogs.

Well, I didn’t register or sign up for it. The website says that their engine uses a fully automated algorithm to seek out the cluster of Singapore blogs within the Internet. Cool. Sound like ping.sg, but fully automated and on a larger scale.

Anyway, I went to take a look and found something very funny. Appearantly, the web spider just grab the most recent picture from the blog and use it as the avatar for the blogger.

Do you know what is my avatar? Hint: Its Chinese New Year period.

Picture of Fortune God from this post.

I like Fortune God. (Well, who doesn’t?) But having fortune god as my avatar is abit…. eerr…. disrespectful? misrepresentation? I don’t know. I still prefer my usual face on table avatar. Wondering if there is any way I could change it.

Thanks to my guest bloggers

Thanks to Eeleen and Brennan for being my guest bloggers while I was busy.

Guest blogging seems fun. Maybe we should do it more often. Anyone want me to guest blog on their blog too? hee hee.

Now that I’m not so busy, its back to the old DK blogging style. :D

Not so busy week ahead

After 2 very busy week, the weeks ahead seem quite relaxed. I’m still going to be busy for quite some time, but its nothing compared to the 2 week grand slam that has just passed.

No more RT for now. But still, I need to do more exercise myself. Must keep reminding myself the 2007 resolution that I’ve made.

The error is more or less settled. I hope. The long term solution isn’t ready yet. But I’m not involved in the solutioning. I was involved in the short term solution while waiting for the long term solution to be tested and roll out to production sometime in mid march. So far, the short term solution that I’ve come up with my colleagues are working fine. Hope this can finally free me up for other task that I have on hand.

The error took up almost all my time in office that I’ve left out all other request on hand. I have 1 request that needs to begin testing on Thursday and I haven’t started on it. And there is another request that need to be in production this weekend. Also haven’t started. Well done. Think I’m going back to office later to settle them. Got this bad feeling that I won’t be given the chance to clear them tomorrow.

And I should get ready for the super big datapatch that I need to do at the end of the week.

I should concentrate on my studies too. One assignment is going to be due next monday. Should be able to finish them this weekend. Another assignment due next next monday. And my project’s first report due next next Wednesday. Good thing is, I’ve found a ‘client’ for the project. Bad news is, there seems to be a lot of things to be done.

One thing you like about those super busy week is that they make the next 2 weeks seems chicken feet.

Ang Pow

This year’s ang pow count is alot lesser than last year.

Oh well…. at least this year’s black jack wasn’t that bad.
Day 1 lose $15
Day 2 win $20
In the end still win $5. :D
