black for a reason


Sunday, April 29, 2007 read close 4 speaks

After a year in work, finally I can sit down appropriately and ready to read a book. Let's pray this habit will be last long enough before another hectic semester comes.

It's time to replenish great-thirst for my long-seeking soul.

Food Review: Chillies 1 Utama

Friday, April 20, 2007 read close 2 speaks

After a tiring game in U-Bowl, 1 Utama. A, K, L, C and I visited Chillies for a drink and have some snacks.

The attraction of chillies is bottomless fruit juices, and also bottomless tostada chips. Of course, a big credit to the "bestest" service given by the "hot" staffs, I meant, chillies' ;)

Fix the advertlets

read close 0 speaks

Nah, I don't fix advertlets by the meaning of fixing the advertlets. What I did was modify slightly of the jQuery just to make sure advertlets will work along with my other jQuery stuff in the template. If you follow my previous posting, you will know my solution was taken from david's recommendation whereby I redirect all the $ used to create effects to another name (to avoid conflict with prototype).

A simple technique of redirecting all variable in such, by using this statement:

JQ = $; //rename $ function

In my case, I put right after the line of code used to call jQuery scripts.

Mystery, solved :)

ps: If you wonder, how I removed the frame border? The simple variable name adv_iframe_border was obtained from zeo. Well, I'm just too lazy to read advertlets.js ;)

Updates on Advertlets

Saturday, April 07, 2007 read close 0 speaks

A quick google returns me some good readings regarding conflicts between prototype (which scriptaculous based upon) and jQuery.

The next google entry tells me about a way to resolve the conflict. It seems the only way to resolve the conflict between advertlets and my jQuery template is to follow david's recommendation to modify function names.

Will update when I try this out.

Universities under fire?

Tuesday, April 03, 2007 read close 0 speaks

A news excerpt from thestar,

Dr Wee Ka Siong (BN - Ayer Hitam) questioned the need for public universities to take part in foreign exhibitions that showcased the universities’ findings and new products, such as the Geneva International Exhibition on Inventions, Products and Services.

He said many Malaysian universities submitted entries for such exhibitions where they stand to win gold, silver and bronze medals for their products.

“These awards are not judged by a panel of experts but by the exhibition organisers themselves.

“Hence, it’s no surprise that each year, more than half of the participants receive awards,” he said during the motion of thanks on the Royal Address at the Dewan Rakyat yesterday.

“I met a professor from a renowned European university while on an overseas trip.

“He laughed and told me that such awards offer no academic merits,” said Dr Wee, adding that most of the products showcased in these exhibitions were from Malaysian universities.

He singled out the Geneva exhibition as a favourite among Malaysian universities.

“We submit the most number of entries each year. In some years, Malaysia had submitted 30% of the total number of entries.

“Last year, about 680 inventions were exhibited. Of these, 152 or 23% were Malaysian exhibits ,” he said.

According to google, the expo is known as Salon International des Inventions, des Techniques et Produits de Geneve, hosted in Geneve Palexpo. How credible is the event? It is difficult to determine at this moment. Will update after my 2 hours tutorial :)
