Wont do that again

Yes, I plead guilty. I never meant to hurt them. He was sitting on the chair. She was listening to music. I made her irritate him. It back-fired and they had this huge argument! They even broke it off right there. He cried, I felt his pain, I felt so bad about it, I didn't know it would turn out this way. She wrote in her diary, and wet the pages with her tears. Poor Joe and Jane will never be best friend again...

...thank god it was just a tutorial.

News Feed for the brain

This does not shock me that much, but I was pretty frustrated in trying to generate a feed for the alwatan newspaper website. Since they themselves do not have a feed, I've taken it upon my self to create one for them. So I try and try to "decode" their html.. so i decided to run a validation and see what could be wrong so I'd take it into account. Here is where it really gets interesting..

Transparent: Web Applications

I usually do not do reviews, but here are a few web applications I think are worth looking at.

* Google Reader: With the same flexibility and power of Gmail, you can now have your own online RSS reader. With a powerful interface and easy to use options and tag features. I liked how dynamic it is, and how easy it is to browse and check for new feed items.

* BackPackit: I've heard of this many times before I decided to use it. Currently the best use I have for it is planning my custom PC. I'm planning to build one from scratch and it is perfect for organizing all the data, links, and information i need for this project.

* Co.mments: I'm not much of a "commenter" type when it comes to blogs, but there are quite a few that I do comment on, and what better way to track replies than this website? You simply click the bookmarklet to track the post, and you are instantly subscribed. You can access your tracking page with a click. But the best feature is the RSS feed for the tracking page. Now I can track new posts and new comments with my (Google) rss reader!

Gift in a Dream

I had a dream about her a few moments ago. We were happy in the dream, then she got disappointed because I wanted to call her - she didn't want me to. Somehow later I was just watching her watching her funny cartoon, thinking if this was real or just a dream. I convinced myself it was real.

You know when destiny does not play out like you think it should? The things you go through to stay in one piece, while you drag yourself along to the next step in life? We always seem to get by, somehow, living the next moment, sometimes wishing we could move back, other times wishing we could move forward a bit. In the end, time doesn't wait for anyone, but a dream...

...can be worth years.

The Secret: When you believe

It turns out The Secret is not a secret after all. For those of who are dying to know what the secret is, it is the Law of Attraction. Like attracts like, and thus, negative attracts negative and positive attracts positive. The movie (documentary) does a much better job of explaining this concept.

After I saw the movie, a song kept repeating in my head...

...For a friend..

In essence, everything is possible, all you have to do.. believe.
