I found out Cloudflare while reading my subscription feeds in Google Reader and later found out that the group that hacked into PSN, used Cloudflare as well to fend off attacks to the group’s site. I decided to give it a go in one of my pet project’s site, myLensDB.
The figures below should tell wonders.
Bandwidth to actual hosting server halved. Threats, although it's totally not aware of previously, seem to be controlled.
This is the new figures.
Response time halved as static content is cached and hosting all around the world at the data center nearest to the requesting user. Speed doubled.
Well, I bet that chances of my friends out there to be actually knowing Yahoo trying to revamp the entire mail interface is very low given that everyone is using GMail as their regular email already for the past few years, like, you and me.
Thus, there’s here I’m making such a posting right now. It’s gonna be short and sweet as always. This posting would be more like “before and after” kind of thingy. Here’s the current look of my email interface for my Yahoo! Mail.
And here is the new look…
Even though that I don’t really give it a damn on whatever Yahoo is doing now or how hard they are trying to lure all the users back to use the once-very-popular-everyone’s-regular-email, I must say that the new interface is very sleek and simple enough.
The obvious thing that I prefer Yahoo! Mail over what Gmail does not offer ability to read multiple emails at the same time. As for now, I can easily open multiple copies of emails in tabbed fashion inside Yahoo! Mail as opposed to explicitly open up my Gmail again in a new tab/window when I need to cross check multiple emails. (This feature is already here in the current version of Yahoo! Mail, by the way!)
See what’s new on the new Yahoo! Mail Beta. Maybe, probably, someday, we can still give Yahoo a go, this time!
Facebook nailed it! Twitter has just nailed it too!
With more than 250 000 new users registrations a day at Facebook, social media has grown at tremendous rate over the recent years. The trend has shifted from blogging to what we call now as micro-blogging.
Social media is like teen sex.
Everyone wants to do it. Nobody knows how.
When it’s finally done there is surprise it’s not better

It is easier to share a thought, or a picture, a video clip through social networking site that almost guarantee you readerships of virtually unlimited through it these days rather than the pain that we need to go through during the old days.
Blogging is so outdated now but something seems to be missing
We are now spared of the need to exert those extra effort of creating a new blog post in the old days (Are you still blogging? Some of my friends even gave up blogging already!), thinking for so long on even what title to use for that damn post, then only posting up the thoughts, photos or any other medias that we want to, into one. Micro blogging is definitely the way to go now for everybody but we are missing a important factor now.
In the old days, by running your own domain, you will get the cut of the cake of what Facebook is enjoying right now! It uses your content to generate traffic and to sell advertisements. Are you getting a cut of the cake?
What if I tell you that there is a micro blogging site that let you manages things that you want to do in the form of micro blogging and let you run your own Google Adsense advertisements?
ToDoAlive may just fit in as the missing cut! It let’s you create things that you want to do, your friends can comment on them to keep you going. And best thing is, you get to keep all the revenue generated from the advertisements displayed on your ToDoAlive page.
It is designed to complement to your Facebook or Twitter, not replacing them.
No doubt about it! When the “have you cut yet?” series of advertisements hit the street, it surely has created just a buzz in the broadband market here in Malaysia. The ads are amusing and entertaining!
Before knowing what the ads are all about, one must be thinking “Why the heck you ask everyone to go sunat!!!???”
Of course, the major (monopolized) broadband player, Streamyx strikes back after a while.
P1 is now Oversubscribed and Complaints are mounting
And thanks to P1 Wimax’s great marketing skill. I believe that they have been overselling broadband services, far exceeding their actual capability. There are lots of complaints being lodged at Low Yat Forum recently. Here’s just a few of them.
come on la P1..i pay every month..
then provide good service la..
i hardly earn the money..
and you guys easily took it by providing bad service..
please respect your customer..
i hate on using harsh words..
but the thing is… i just FED UP with the connection…
please use your brain and think if you subscribe for bad service..
what do you feel…?
will you just pay for that bad service??
will you just keep silent??
please la..i am tired of being in this situation..
i just want you guys to IMPROVE the service..
use OUR MONEY that you guys get every month to enhance your service.
AND DONT JUST JUST SAY `WE WILL GIVE U 1 DAY FREE OF CHARGE,AFTER WE GIVE U TROUBLE EVERYDAY’
And this user needs to use Celcom’s broadband just to do a posting.
Here i have exactly the same problem as lot of P1 Wimax subscriber. The problem is super slow internet speed for 24/7. U can see in my signature below this speed only happened on my 1st week subscription. Then now after almost 7 months of subscription it as night mare for me pay almost rm100/month for speed around 200kbps and this happened for 24/7. For your information I subscribed for 1.2Mbps @ Rm99/month. Only god know how my feeling now. Want to terminate this account but i have contract for 2 years. Now to add this reply also i need to use my backup celcom 384kbps broadband. Pls do something… if u need my details pls pm me. I think P1 Wimax already over subscribed. The P1 tower now can’t handle for its over subscribed customer. Quoted from mjoe
And how is it compares to 56kbps PSTN line?
have the same problem yesterday midnight…1:30am onwards the line is not responding at all, able to open my gmaill page in 15 mins…(u know, login and go to my shower then come back, the page only show rclxub.gif ) Remind me the worst time during my 56kbps generation…. well this time is worst than that moment Quoted from taitianhin
And some users decided to fork out extra money to subscribe to another broadband service as backup when P1 Wimax is down.
Now my P1 totally out of service.. freaking slow and always stuck there even google page also!
I have no idea now.. so just purchase another prepaid broadband for temporary use! Quoted from chung5576
