Requested by PUMBer squallelf, I just compile a quick DA.

ROff DA is a Desk Accessories for user to turn off their Palm on the fly.

Or on the other hand, it simply turn off your Palm like you press the power button.

There is no UI for this DA, as it was intent to let user switch off their Palm asap.

You will need any DA Launcher to run this DA, example App/DA Launcher, hi-Launcher or McPhling.

Download ROffDA here:

CGI Programming with Perl from Oreilly …

Went to library with R today, while she was searching for books she need, spotted this book on the shelf, reminds me of the days of learning Perl back in AUS..

It would always be nice to read more, refresh my Perl, as some more function on this Weblog are being plan..

RSS is fun!

Hum……. yep, I think RSS is getting there, it does really match it’s name:
Really Simple Syndication
Nice name!

I just love this idea, get the info at the smallest and fastest way.

Seems more RSS function and ATOM Feed are the next thing to be done on this Weblog.

Adding the search function from AdSense for Search!

I am not trying to promote or anything, just feeling that this is a great idea provided by google.

Instead of using an URL, for example as the broswer index page, I have done my own little HTML with my most visited site, and a google search box in my HDD.
Due to my personal interest, in many case I only would like to search with different country, so this HTML has been code using JavaScript to support searching google in different country (google HK, google US, google JP etc.), this make my daily search way more easiler!

I will say, instead of goggle toolbar or simular software, I will always love to see a google search box in any page, makes searching way easiler!


ok, I hate Windoz!!!!!!

after X times of reinstalling windoz…….. I am so sick of it… everything was down for almost 2 months!!!! one by one!
first off windoz refuse to boot after plugging the cheapy TV card into different PCI slot. (don’t ask me why, even after I plug it back to the one it was windoz refuse to boot)
then it was HW problem, RAID card refuse to work.
then it was windoz problem, PPM refuse to work…..
due to “the Great piece of virus – windoz” all server needs to reinstall/config for work, mySQL, SSH2, FTP, HTTP, Perl, PHP, Palmsource SDK, CYGWIN, JDK, etc etc etc….(chunked 3000 words)

I was keep on having error on trying to use ppm to install any perl mod.
here is what the error look like:
ppm> search DBI
Searching in Active Repositories
Error: No valid repositories: Error: 500 Can’t connect to (Bad protocol ‘tcp’) Error: 500 Can’t connect to (Bad protocol ‘tcp’)

ok, just a reminder, EVER EVER EVER anyone need it, it is so simple!

do flush the TCP/IP of the windoz and it works!

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
