The Level One ADSL modem adapter after it was struck by lightning several weeks ago. I’ve already replaced the modem with a new one from TP-Link.
I am fascinated by how and what they have done to the interior of the SKMM (Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia / Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission) building….truly world class. The environment and people around you were so relaxed, it felt more like a hotel than an office!
Finally what I have dreamt for all this while is now achieved. I am now the proud owner of my Amazon Kindle 3…which allows you to read e-books on the go. Now I can peruse by 200GB worth of PDF e-books easily and painlessly without lugging a laptop around.
Got a cheque from Exa Bytes Network for promoting their web hosting packages, via their “Angel” affiliate programme. That amount you see, however, is the total from 2006, which in short means I haven’t been earning much from them. In any case, money is still money and I am grateful for the cheque. Already cashed it into my bank account and it was used as part of the payment for my Blue Beauty.
Went to Danga City Mall and it seems they have floors dedicated to IT stuff which they brand it as “Digital Valley”. There was no such thing when I was there last, interesting. Bought a notebook keyboard protector, a pair of gaming headphones and a 3-ports USB 2.0 hub.
I bought this Acer Aspire series notebook some 24-hours ago. For the price (RM2888, which includes some accessories) and considering its specs — Intel i7 second-generation, dedicated video graphics card with 2GB and 4GB DDR3 RAM — it was definitely a deal-breaker. Originally I was thinking of a lower-end model, but that price was certainly within my affordability range. In any case, it has the ideal specifications I needed and most importantly, it’s future-proof.
