I finally finished downloading 600 over MB of files yesterday. Had a try on this bootable OS on a CD-ROM and realized I almost forgotten how to use Linux! It has been almost 2 years since I used a Linux.
hongjun joined Experts Exchange (EE) in Sep 1999, and has been a long time contributor in the ASP topic area. He has also achieved over a dozen other topic areas to reach the 1,000,000 point level, so we asked him what keeps him going.
How did you first find Experts Exchange? Well, I first get to know Experts-Exchange during my poly days. A friend of mine introduced EE to me when we were stucked with some C Programming logic.
When you give your email address to a website, you hope that they don't sell or trade your address to a bunch of spammers. Well if they do, here is a simple way to see what sites are responsible for what particular piece of email. This requires you have a Gmail account.
If your Gmail login name was email@example.com and you went to samplesite.com to fill out a registration form, instead of just entering firstname.lastname@example.org as your email, enter it as email@example.com instead. When Gmail sees a "+" in an email address, it uses all the characters to the left of the plus sign to know who to send it to. In this example it would still send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now whats cool is if you search Gmail for username+samplesitecom, you will see all massages that were sent to that email address.
To see who is responsible for sending a specific message click the Show Details link and you will see the complete address.
All was planned by Regine and my job was just to follow.
We met at HarborFront MRT at around 7pm before heading to Bugis.A small hint from her was that dinner would be near Fortune Centre. I was left making guesses on where would be the place for dinner. I have no idea. We finally reached a place which till now I don't even know what is the name of the restaurant. There wasn't any sign of any signboard nor name of the restaurant written on the menu. I would grade the restaurant highly for their ambience.
After we finished our main course, we were served with ice cream and brownie (both were heart shaped) by one of the waiters. On top of the brownie was a lighted candle. This arrangement was preplanned and well-timed. I appreciate Regine's effort for this planning.
We left for home early after the dinner because we still need to work the next day. Oh ya.. I got a birthday card, a bear (she also has got one), and a wallet from Regine as my birthd…

Windows Mail builds on the foundation of Outlook Express, adding a variety of new features designed to make your e-mail experience more productive and fun, while helping to reduce and annoyances such as phishing and junk e-mail.
2FA stands for Second Factor Authentication. With 2FA, you are better guarded against online crimes such as Trojans and phishing attacks.
By next year, all banks will need to be equiped with this new security feature. Already, I am using this 2FA with MayBank. I would say MayBank is the pioneer to kick start this new technology. Very soon, DBS Bank will follow suit too!
IE7 was released to the general public few days ago. What many do not realize is that it is being sent out as a high priority automatic update to Windows XP SP2 users. So many/most users are likely to update like it or not. It could lead to problems for some unknown reason if IE7 is running on a computer causing some legacy system not to function. In any case there is a tool to block the automatic update for IE7 this tool can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=4516A6F7-5D44-482B-9DBD-869B4A90159C
Recent studies show that green tea can help greatly in the process of losing weight. It does it by increasing the body's metabolism. If consumed regularly, it can help you burn as much as eighty calories extra. In a year, that’s about 8 pounds; you lose that much just by drinking, even without diet and exercise.
To further enlighten you as to how green tea works, read on below:
Green tea slows down the absorption of fats and regulates glucose. The same substance, cathechin polyphenol, restrains the transition of glucose into fats. By doing that, experts believe that green tea is an effective glucose regulator. It effectively prevents insulin spikes and slows the rise of blood sugar after every meal. Insulin, as specialists agreed upon, promotes the storage of fats as it deals with the body’s blood sugar.
Green tea has the ability to reduce appetite. Because green teas have regulating effects on the blood sugar, people who drink it are observed to eat food as much as 60 percent lesser…

Watching facial expressions in order to determine whether a person is lying might just save you from being a victim of fraud, or it could help you figure out when somebody's being genuine. Jury analysts do this when assisting in jury selection. The police do this during an interrogation. A lie detector of course does this, but is a little heavy to carry with you. Therefore, you have to learn the little facial and body expressions that can help you learn to recognize a lie from the truth.

If the 4-digit year is not evenly divisible by 4, it is not a leap year.
If it is evenly divisible by 4 and also evenly divisible by 100, it is not a leap year — unless it is also evenly divisible by 400.
Therefore: If it is evenly divisible by 4 and not evenly divisible by 100, it is a leap year.If it is evenly divisible by 4 and is also evenly divisible by 400, it is a leap year.If it is evenly divisible by 4 and also evenly divisible by 100 and also evenly divisible by 400, it is a leap year.However, if it is evenly divisible by 4 and also evenly divisible by 100 and not further evenly divisible by 400, then it is not a leap year. 1600 was a leap year. 1700, 1800, and 1900 were not leap years. 2000 was a leap year.

These airlines are getting really creative in getting passengers. No wonder SIA is falling behind in terms of service standards. If I remember correctly reading from the Today's Papers, SIA is ranked behind Thai Airlines and Malaysian Airlines. SIA needs to buck up.
