Posted Thursday, February 12, 2015

If you're a nerd like me, you might want to take advantage of this freebie: Google is offering to increase your storage by two gigabytes if you perform a security checkup in your account. The offer is open only until Feb 17, 2015.

Seems Yahoo(tm) is having technical difficulties. I keep trying to login to my Yahoo Mail and it keeps logging me out. I feel like a program stuck in an infinite loop!

10M souls in Saigon and sometimes all you need is one: yourself.

Anywhere Pad, the Board Portal Software for iPads and Android Tablets

Posted Monday, May 12, 2014

Around a year ago, I wrote about Anywhere Pad, particularly about its new design. That blog entry was more of a test than anything else, but I thought of doing a follow-up post because a lot has happened since I published the first one.

I read a few hosts who charge a small fee but I'm not ... read more ->

She said if I want CPK or Project Pie. Without second thoughts, I immediately replied Project Pie because I've heard so much ... read more ->

This is inspired by a thought catalog article shared to me by one of my friends.
