Stop Child Abuse

UNICEF has started a nationwide movement called "Get on Board" to provide the public with the information, insight and resources to stop child abuse. This knowledge will empower everyone to protect the children in our families and communities. Let us show our children that at least a 100,000 of us care. The more people who raise their hand to be counted, the stronger the campaign becomes to deter an abuser from hurting a child.

You can become a Campaigner for Children by hopping on our bus, and rallying others to join us on our journey to end child abuse in Malaysia. UNICEF has prepared materials for you to use to help spread the word and to get as many people as possible to sign up for children. Here are some of the things you can do to promote the campaign for children:

* Blog about the campaign.
* Donate your Facebook status message or change your profile picture to the picture of your designed hand.
* Email you friends. (We even pre-made an email template for your convenience)
* Create conversations on Twitter.
* Send a letter to the Editor of your daily newspaper.
* Organise a sign-up at your company, college, place of worship.

Get on Board and help us spread the word to stop child abuse today! What will you do today that is more important?

Let's unite against abuse.

More on RockMelt

Okay, RockMelt finally working on my laptop. See what I complained about. Anyway, here is my print screen. The icons (apps) on both side are finally appear.It could be previously it cannot login. So your friends are on left hand side; facebook profile/twitter/RSS on right have side.

I can invite friends to RockMelt, but only gave me 3 invites? WHY WHY WHY?
Another problem is I cannot invite some people, most of my friends can be invited, but not all, not sure why yet.

My twitter also added here, so a single click can see my twits.

You can subscribe to RSS, I added this blog's RSS for testing:

Verdict, if you use Facebook 24/7, this could be your browser. Else look for FireFox or Safari (I use both of them).

Skyfire abandoned WinMo

Skyfire has abandoned WinMo, the community is angry but Skyfire management is not doing anything about it.


What is Skyfire you might ask? Skyfire is powerful web browser for smartphone that support flash, mainly for WinMo and symbian. However recent Skyfire moved to apple apps store. Since then WinMo and Symbian users have problem accessing Skyfire. Web browsing using Skyfire was nice because the browser works with the company server to optimize the web content you surfing, but now not anymore for WinMo and Symbian.

Sorry, appls apps store is just way too good to earn money already. :P

RockMelt: that not quite there yet

I have blogged about RockMelt few days ago. And on that very same day I have already got it installed. So here is some snapshot, and some rant on this beta.

Thank you!

Wow, finally this blog reach 10,000 page view! Took a few months to reach there. A big thanks to you all for the support! :)

What you see is NOT what you get

Usually when we read news papers or magazine, the models/artists in the articles or ads are super beautiful, not a flaw! Many years back it was make up, so you still can see a little bit of flaw. But now with photoshop, there is no flow, except sometime the "photoshoper" that made some mistake. :P With photoshop,the guys can be macho!

This video showing how the people in video/movie can be taller or slimmer or more macho, any way you like it!

So people, what you see in the movie/photo/magazine/blog/web is not always the real one. Don't try to be exactly like in the movie/photo/magazine/blog/web. What most important is your heart. :)

Blogger Stats

Couple of months ago, I still using some counter websites to track who/where/how my audience that come to this Outdated Penang Uncle blog. So I have to sign up for the service (yes, a lot of them are free), add the widget and after a while login to find out the statistic. For past few months, blogger added the page view tracking for all the blogspot, so even though I still have the counter at my blog, usually I just look at the "Stats" to find out my audience.
