Facebook has had a rough ride on the stock market since its IPO a few weeks ago. The stock has steadily declined while rumors of insider trading and other shady activities will not go away.

My internet connection is not great in Bali. I think now my internet bill is higher than my monthly rent! Partly because I moved to a cheaper place and now paying to have it in our office.

My laptop is still going strong after a couple of years, but it is starting to get slower and slower, mainly when starting up. I am reluctant to buy a new one as this one has been so reliable. A reinstall of the Windows would help a lot, but I can’t bothered with that. I […]

Google and Microsoft go head to head

18 April 2006

The competition between Microsoft and Google is becoming greater as they both try to cross into one another’s domains. Google have released their own on-line calendar and just when I thought I would stop using Hotmail, I clicked on the “try new beta” in my account and found Microsoft’s new web mail offering. It has […]
