Barbarella and her weather forecast

Of: Suicide Note

Reading Time: 15 minutesBell Zeller, a fantastic programmer, committed suicide early last month. Being someone who does not have friends committing suicide (as if I want them to), it is kind of detached for me to feel sad. Not until you read a suicide note written with much intensity. It was succinct, even when the note is 4000 words long. It conveyed his entire 27 years of sadness. So great that it leaves me with a heavy heart. In the words of Joel…

Of: PostPost.com

Reading Time: 1 minuteThose who are in my friend list on Facebook know that I am an avid sharer, sharing YouTube videos, interesting news, constant status updates, all just to distract them. Just kidding. Anyway, there is a new application in town! Not exactly an application, rather, a website: PostPost.com. This is the browser version of Flipboard. In their words: PostPost is a news aggregator for the social generation, and collates the articles, videos, and photos your friends have found interesting enough to…

Facebook mining

Facebook mining

Reading Time: 2 minutesApparently, there are scammers/data miners who are exploiting features, or lack of it, on Facebook. For many years, as far back as when Facebook first started, countless of users have been asking or requesting for a similar feature to Friendster’s “Who viewed my profile”. Steadfastly, Facebook held their ground and refuse to allow such a feature to be implemented. Malicious programmers are now increasingly exploiting this stance to mine user data (so I have assumed) from unwitting Facebook users, who…

In response to this ridiculous law: Breaking wind

In response to this ridiculous law: Breaking wind

Reading Time: 1 minuteApparently breaking wind is about to be made illegal in Malawi. It appears to raise a stink in the local judiciary as well. Justice Minister George Chaponda says the new bill would criminalise flatulence to promote “public decency”. “Just go to the toilet when you feel like farting,” he told local radio. However, he was directly contradicted by Solicitor General Anthony Kamanga, who says the reference to “fouling the air” means pollution. Read more over here. Laughable. Now, this reminds…

[Alert!] Fake Nikon Giveaway on Facebook

[Alert!] Fake Nikon Giveaway on Facebook

Reading Time: 1 minuteThe following is just a rehash of what I have posted on my Facebook wall. It simply highlights the danger of liking random pages. Consider this a public service announcement. There is a “Nikon camera giveaway” (note the quotation marks) on Facebook (http://guyinawindchair.com/nikon/). It is a scam. Do not like not it. If you have, block the application and check if you have this page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/HM-Faysal/167240566625082) in your “like” list. Also remember to block the application as it has access…

Light Stencils

Light Stencils

Reading Time: 1 minuteKudos to furryphotos for exposing me to light stencilling on Plurk. It is a photography technique whereby the photographer manipulate exposure settings, lighting conditions, and together with self-made dies to create really nice pictures. There is a tutorial on light stencilling on Deviant Art. You can view more of light stencils on Flickr by searching for “light stencil”. Just wondering aloud: Can this be counted as a arts project in schools? I am sure that the students who are interested…
