SnapPages is a startup that is similiar to SquareSpace I guess but better.
I remember many people scrambling madly to buy houses back in 2006-2007 and how there is never enough land to go around and how prices would be the best investment one can make. Well…. how wrong everyone is. It was so obvious to me how sky high ridiculous market values for houses were. Yet what can you do… Now we are all paying for it. Except the smart people who bought in 1999-2005. And I guess real estate agents can make money selling or buying. But now taxpayers are paying for these financial institution meltdowns and it is so unfair. All those CEOs made their money and left and now the American public is left with the burden of cleaning up. The system must change…
The Lotus Wiki has a nice design to it.
This guy has a great PHP / htaccess solution for solving the IE 7 security warning about page containing secure and nonsecure items.
I am starting to compile a list of the best bay area wedding photographers. So wedding photographers in the North Bay, East Bay, and South Bay. I will constantly be adding to the list. Please feel free to add people you think are great.
Here’s a list of the best commercials of 2008 so far.
That is kind of weird… dont know why but if you have your frameset under the BODY tag in the code, the frames doesnt work in Firefox. Who knows why.
This is a gallery of booth babes from various car and other trade shows. Feel free to add more.
I tried 2 different versions of a page and it seems to load about the same amount of time. In fact, I think SMARTY loads a tad slower. The cache doesnt seem to help that much. I know it’s cached because I do changes to the db and the page remains the same, so it’s definitely using the cache version.
I had Santa Ramen for the first time today. I was unimpressed. The soup was better than Ryowa but the portions were so little. I was seated fairly quickly but the wait for the noodles took more than 30 minutes. I consider that an obscene long time for some noodles. Or maybe I was just in a really bad mood. I dont know… I asked if they forgot my order and they said they havent. But 30 minutes for some ramen. ARGH… I was very close to walking out and going to Fresh Choice across the parking lot.
The noodles were semi-crunchy and the flavor was good. But the meat portions were tiny and like I said, I hated the long wait for the noodles. Plus they have NO VEGETARIAN sign posted outside. I think they are a bit arrogant because they are so popular in that area. Well, I dont know if I would go there again. I paid $10 for my noodles and that included tips.
Here’s a list of some other ramen places in bay area.
SWFUpload is great for uploading multiple files using PHP. It is one of the best ones I have ever seen. Plus it got such great flexibility and I was able to get it up and running within a few hours (I am not a programmer).
What kung fu movie was that? I dont even recognize it.
Man.. who wrote that commercial? It is so stupid….
I havent decided what to do at the moment but it definitely needs a redesign. I started it focusing more on functionality and making the features work. But at this point, I think I better start updating the homepage design.
Nuevasync is so awesome. Allows you to sync all your calendars to your iPhone.
I am so tired of any political party that depends on lies and deceit to win elections and I am so tired of George Bush. Lets elect Obama and give him a chance for change.
Google released a tool to allow calendar sync between Outlook and Google Calendar.
I just pre-ordered one of these FitBit devices. It was launched at TC50 and I was reading the article and thought it might be interested. I want to use it for sleep… It reminds me of the Wii Fit in some ways.
These are some of the TV shows that I really enjoyed.
Here are some possible treatments for acne.
I think these startups are kind of interesting.
Check out the rice variety visual gallery.
Dav Glass has some examples of how to achieve same prototype effects but using YUI library instead.
Gurgling COLD water (not drinking) worked finally… I tried everything else and went to see doctor at Kaiser and nurse didnt know what to do but suggested this as last resort. You can see a gallery of hiccup remedies here.
Update: Gurgling didnt really work. It came back. Finally I drank a lot of water while bending my head back and putting my arms in the air. And that seem to have worked.
I finally figured to speed it up by excluding certain paths in the Subversion Settings -> Shell Overlay and select to show overlays only in Explorer and only include the folders I need to see this.
These are truly funny….
WalMart is now selling electric bikes (not online) and the prices are quite reasonable. I think it’s pretty good but they need to sell a beach cruiser version.
These are some useful shortcuts for moving around Visio
Daniel Lyons writes that Apple is becoming like Microsoft and I think it’s true. They company doesnt really respond to customers very well and everything is kept so secretively. I used to like the iPhone but now dreads it’s constant lockups and freezes since updating to firmware 2.0. It’s such a bad user experience.

The latest 2.0 update has killed my enthusiasm for the device. Everything is slow and things constantly break.
