Keeping good health

with one comment

MSNBC has an article on how to prevent headaches from happening. Mostly common sense stuff. Rest, eat, and exercise well.

Online collaborative editing

leave a comment »

A great way of making your files accessible from any computer with internet access is keeping the files on Google Docs and/or Zoho.

Here’s a nice gDocs introduction video.

I’m using both gDocs and Zoho. I think Google has too small file size limits. It will probably change in the future.

Looks like a pretty fun way to learn new languages:

Mango mango

They use slides (Flash 9) with audio embedded. There are currently about 11 languages available.

Firefox add-ons

leave a comment »

At home I always use Safari and Camino combo. They are fast and relatively lean. At work I have to use Windows/Linux. So I opt for Firefox. These are my three favorite extensions (add-ons).

Foxmarks: synchronize your bookmarks across computers

Download Status Bar: download things clutter-free

Adblock Plus: block those pesky web ads

Federer was crowned with the 4th straight US Open championship. By beating Djokovic 7-6, 7-6, 6-4 on Sunday, he now has 12 Grand Slam titles. Now just 2 behind Pete Sampras. Records keep piling up. Congrats Roger!

Tennis @ SAT

leave a comment »

Played tennis for the first time in a long time at SAT (Sports Authority of Thailand) court. It was fun. We played from 7pm-8pm so the weather was all right. Lucky it didn’t rain.

Playing sports in Bangkok is not always easy. You have to deal with the hot weather and frequent rain. Also the traffic jam often discourages me from going anywhere.
