Posted on December 2006 at about 10:51 PM by hwa

Blizzard gave back our tuesday in this week with their live maintenance (every tuesday Blizzard will maintain their WoW server and this could take up to 8 hours) but god took it away and “punish” (shouldn’t be call punish but i can’t think of any better word) us by not allowing us to play WoW for don’t know how long. 🙁

Because of the Taiwan earthquake, causing six out of seven undersea cable which link some of the Asia country to US damaged, hence making internet connection become extremely slow until it’s hard for me to post in my blog. 😡 I don’t know how long they will fix the cable but from what i heard, it will probably take three weeks time!! OMG there goes my holiday!!!! 😥

My WoW play time will expired by the end of this month, so i thought i can play WoW in this few days until the time expired then i start study for my final, but i guess i couldn’t do like this anymore, god want me to be good boy. 😥

Hope everything will be fix as soon as possible, at least before my holiday start, i don’t want to spend my holiday with slow internet!! 😥

International Internet Link Down

Posted on December 2006 at about 1:49 AM by hwa

Last night, around 2am i was playing WoW, then all the sudden my WoW ping reach until 2k, then shortly after that all my instant messenger got disconnected. At first i thought it was the live update by Blizzard that’s why it lagged a bit, but it’s not, it’s because the earthquake in Taiwan and caused the international link went down.

According to Reuters, the biggest quake was measured at the magnitude of 7.1 Richter scale, and because of this at least six undersea cables were effected and the international internet line is now congested, several country in Asia including China, South Korea and Malaysia will experience some delay while visit the internet.

Multiple Standalone Internet Explorer

Posted on December 2006 at about 6:09 PM by hwa

Ever though of installing multiple standalone version of Internet Explorer in your machine and running them side by side? Maybe you ask why, but sometime for web designer, it’s necessary for them to install multiple different web browser just to see how their website turn out to be before publishing it to the public, and because of the CSS bugs in Internet Explorer, some web designer will actually install multiple version of Internet Explorer in case something odd happen to their website.

Few weeks ago i accidentally upgraded my Internet Explorer to version 7, before this i tried not to upgrade it because majority of my visitors are using Internet Explorer 6, so now i think i need to keep a version Internet Explorer 6.

So i went Google around and i found this website, there you can find all the archives of web browser including all range of Internet Explorer, and further search leads me to here, an installer that contain all the Internet Explorer 3 until Internet Explorer 6.

Microsoft Firefox 2007 Professional Edition

Posted on November 2006 at about 2:16 AM by hwa

Ever wonder what will happen if two currently most popular web browser merge and become The One product? Worry not! Because Microsoft Firefox makes your dream come true. 😀

Makes everyday tasks easier

Microsoft Firefox provides improved navigation through tabbed browsing, web search right from the toolbar, advanced marginal manipulation, reading & subscription to RSS (Real Simple Sex), and much more.

  • Simplified User Experience
    Microsoft Firefox presents a noticeably simpler, more streamlined, less cluttered interface than all other browsers. The introduction of the Cut Away Effect™ randomly disables the rendering of 9/10 of Microsoft Firefox helps to reduce the strain on system resources. This also maximizes the area of the screen devoted to the Desktop that you want to see and makes performing the most common computing tasks easy.
  • Amazing Marginal Manipulation
    Automatically scales a printed margin so that it’s not wider than the paper it will be printed on. Microsoft Firefox also includes a multi-page margin preview with live margins, resizing margins to avoid margin clipping, and an option to print only selected margins. Never have you seen a more robust margin technology in one small package.
  • Instant Search Box
    Web searches using your favorite Microsoft search provider can now be entered into a search box within the toolbar. By eliminating the clutter of other search engines, you can easily choose a REAL reliable Microsoft provider from the dropdown list.
  • Favorites Center
    Offers easy and fast access to Microsoft Favorites, Tab Groups, Browsing History, and RSS (Real Simple Sex). Expands when needed, and can be anchored in place for even easier access.
  • RSS (Real Simple Sex)
    RSS is a relatively new algorithmic technology fueled by the continued hot desires of many online web users. Accessed by an illuminating an icon on the toolbar – a single click allows you to view and optionally download anything that resembles a tit, a boob or a breast – rendered directly in the browser with speeds up to 10 times faster than the competition. Real Simple Sex can scan and arrange explicit images/pictures in order of quality and effectively filters out irrelevant content such as balloons or soccer balls.
  • Tabbed Browsing
    View multiple Microsoft sites in a single browser window. Easily switch from one Microsoft site to another through tabs at the top of the browser frame.
  • Quick Tabs
    Provides easy tab selection and navigation by displaying thumbnails of all open Microsoft site tabs in a single window.
  • Tab Groups
    Tabs can be grouped and saved into logical or illogical categories, allowing you to open multiple tabs with a single click. A Tab Group can easily be set as the Home Page Group so the entire Tab Group opens every time Microsoft Firefox is launched from the Start menu.
  • Page Zoom
    Enlarge individual webpages, including both text and graphics, to either focus on specific content or to enable certain explicit images more more accessible to those with vision limitations.

Dynamic security protection

Microsoft Firefox 2007 provides security through a robust new architecture, security features that help defend against malicious software, and new ways to better protect against the theft of personal data from fraudulent websites, a practice known as Googling.

  • 3rd Party Opt-in
    Disables nearly all pre-installed non-Microsoft software to prevent potentially vulnerable controls from being exposed to attack. You can easily enable or disable required programs as needed through the Add-on Manager by using any valid credit card.
  • Security Status Bar
    Enhances awareness of website security and privacy settings by displaying color-coded notifications next to the address bar. Microsoft Firefox changes the Address Bar to green for websites bearing the Microsoft Partnership Certificate, indicating the site owner has completed extensive identity and friendship verification checks. Googling Filter notifications, certificate names, and the gold padlock icon are now also adjacent to the address bar for better visibility.
  • Googling Filter
    Proactively warns and helps protect you against potential or known fraudulent sites such as Google.com, blocks the site and shuts down your computer if necessary. The filter is updated several times per hour using the latest security information from Microsoft.
  • Delete Browsing History
    Allows you to clean up cached pages, passwords, form data, cookies, and history of illegal warez and propaganda sites – all from a single window.
  • Address Bar Protection
    Every window, whether it’s a pop-up or standard window, will present an address bar to the user, helping to block malicious sites such as Yahoo.com
  • Parental Controls
    To help keep kids safer online, parents can control browsing behavior through the parental control settings built into Microsoft Firefox with an extensive range of options – on or off. Force your child to browse educational Microsoft based content sites only. Teaching your children programming for “native Javascript objects for rich AJAX-style applications” has never been easier. Browsing sessions are automatically examined by Microsoft marketing representatives 24/7.
  • Secure my Kernel with TakeOver™
    To help protect the Windows kernel being affected by unsafe code executions, Microsoft Firefox automatically notifies you of any programs that may put your computer at risk, and will take the necessary restarting/shutdown processes required to save Windows. Learn More
  • Competition Disabled Mode
    To help troubleshoot difficulties launching Microsoft Firefox or reaching specific Microsoft websites, you have the ability to start in “No Competition” mode, where only system critical Microsoft sites can be accessed.

Improved platforms and multimedia

Microsoft Firefox has improved support for cascading style sheets and robust tools for deploying and managing images, sounds, video and other interactive content.

  • CSS Improvements
    Margins and Paddings within Microsoft Firefox now work flawlessly after extensive research by the Microsoft Laboratories in Silicon Valley. Better support for font families and font sizes still pending further research.
  • Application Compatibility Toolkit
    An application compatibility kit will be available for Microsoft Firefox, allowing Microsoft employed IT pros and Microsoft developers to understand any incompatibilities with their existing websites, applications, and deployments. This toolkit will not be released for the general public.
  • Opaque Alpha Channels in PNG
    Supports opaque transparency within PNG images resulting in better-looking websites that are simpler to build and maintain.
  • AKobe Phlash™ Multimedia Kit
    This multimedia deployment package works in conjunction with the native Phlash™ Plugin that comes bundled with Microsoft Firefox 2007. Delivering, viewing and downloading customized interactive multimedia content has never been so simple. Learn More (Lawsuit from Adobe Pending)
  • Improved HIJAX Support
    Improves the implementation of the XMLHTTP Requests with native Javascript exploits of other web browsers. This syntactically takes over (Hijacks) random browser clients online compromising their security and usability.
  • Platform Compatibility
    Microsoft Firefox is more compatible with top Microsoft web features than ever before. Microsoft Firefox 2007 will support many of the new Microsoft standards on the web to make browsing the web a richer experience and easier to develop for.

LOL~!!! 😀
