I finally had the time to upgrade Please Name My blog to WordPress 2.5 today (or rather tonight). I noticed the blog runs much faster and smoother with the latest release of WordPress, though I hope they would fix the upload file script which I find it a bit buggy for my use.
If you running WordPress, then I suggest you upgrade your WordPress installation the latest release as there are many bugfix and features in this release. Not to mention about the potential security issues when running older WordPress installation.
Expect to see newer posts after this.
Internet, Music, Rants, Technology March 12th, 2008
Even in 2008 in the era of blogs and webservices, there are people who are still stuck in the 1990s.
Embedding music player and playlist of your favorite song is okay, as long as you don’t auto play it when somebody surf your blog. Worse of all, when you don’t include a button to make the music stop.
Please, we visit your site to read blog posts, not to listen to your favorite music. If we want to listen to your music, we would already have it on our computer.
Its annoying to be forced to listen to the music that you don’t want to hear, much less it interferes with our own music player. I wouldn’t be surprised if people would rather choose to depart early from your website without even finishing your post for that reason.
I was searching for some Pocket PC related books in Google Books service and suddenly I was attracted at the Google Book Search blog post titled “Breaking the fast” which list books related the the Muslim festive celebration (Eid Al Fitr or Aidilfitri as it is called in my place).
I was fascinated by theÂ booksÂ listedÂ there and spends almost an hour browsing the search result, enough to make me forget my original intention for searching Pocket PC related books on the website.
Well, guess i need to be more focussed next time!
Why create another blog?
The reason I decided to start yet another blog is because I felt the need to have a platform where I can post my personal views and opinion which does not fit very well on both of my special-topic blog.
This is where I’m going to post about my rants, ramblings, photos, movie reviews and other stuff that interest me for others to read. I create this blog specifically for my friends, would-be friends and casual reader as a way of sharing my thoughts.
I hope that you would enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing them. If you’ve any questions you may contact me using the contact form here
