♥ Music Monday

= Monday, June 29, 2009 =


I've been seeing Music Monday posts in the past weeks but I can't find where I found them and where do they link to for the Mr. Linky.

Anyway, here's my music for this monday...



Bridge Over Troubled Water › Simon And Garfunkel

When youre weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
Im on your side. when times get rough
And friends just cant be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

When youre down and out,
When youre on the street,
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.
Ill take your part.
When darkness comes
And pains is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

Sail on silvergirl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
If you need a friend
Im sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.

You Are a Night Person



For you, there's nothing worse than having to get up and moving early.

In fact, you probably don't hit your peak until well after the sun has set.

So if your struggling to make it on a normal schedule, realize it's not your fault.

You just weren't meant to do anything during the day!

Are You a Morning Person or Night Person?


Ok, this is my last personality test for this series. Maybe next week? Ha!!!

You are most like:


Attentive

You give a lot of attention and expect the same in return - some people may call you high mantainance, but you don't mind, you simply have high standards, and deserve to be treated well because you care so much for others.

Take this quiz: What kind of boyfriend or girlfriend are you?

♥ My Hint of Addiction at EntreCard

= Tuesday, June 23, 2009 =






Yes, I should change my tagline for this blog. I am now officially not a relaxed dropper. I have a hint of addiction already! LOL.. Don't you just love those labels?

And because I have little extra time at work now for surfing the web (which I used to not take advantage of), I was able to reach 300 drops 4 times already! Wohoo!
And I thought it was not possible (for me that is)

So where do I get my 300 blogs to drop on? Not much in searching, I just head on to my Drops Inbox and choose to show "Cards you haven't dropped on" from the dropdown. Then off I go and blog hop. So if I missed your blog, pardon me coz maybe you haven't dropped on me lately? *wink*

I'm thinking of games now, that I can host. I would like to give away some credits to winners as well. Have any ideas?

♥ Entrecard warning: My Blog may be deleted !?!?

= Monday, June 22, 2009 =


HELP! I can't believe I received this message for my blog Inlove with Daisies.



It says:
Your site has auto playing audio. This is against Entrecard's TOS. Please remove this within 72 hours to avoid being deleted from Entrecard. Your site has a popup ad. This is against Entrecards TOS.

First, there is no music that automatically plays on my blog. I hate those kinda things, in fact, last February, I even joined BAM (Bloggers Against Music) - music on blogs that play without a visitor's consent that is.

Second, I am not aware that there is a pop-up at my blog. I suspect that it may be caused by the recent widget that I added, the google page rank button. This calculates links and all, using a javascript, and displays my PR automatically. So I just made a screen shot of my result. I suspect it won't change anytime soon anyway.



But other than that, I don't think my other add-ons causes this. Please tell me if you see any pop ups still, coz I may change my whole template. I just hope that this won't mess up the Comentluv widget and I won't loose any, or worse: all my precious comments!

So to be safe, I transferred 95% of my credits to this blog, in case I won't make it in time (before 72 hours) in finding what is causing the pop-up.

PLEASE HELP ME! If you may know what causes the pop up or if you see any pop ups, please leave me a comment here or at my blog Inlove with Daisies.

Thanks!

♥ JPEG, PNG, or GIF, which is the smallest?

= Saturday, June 20, 2009 =


As I was making the screen shots for my comments stalker post yesterday, I looked for the smallest size of photo to post, without sacrificing the quality of the image, so it won't take long to load.

I read somewhere that PNG gives the best space saver. But, I realized yesterday that it's not.

Have you tried making a screen shot and save it as JPEG and the imge becomes blur? Sometimes it even changes the pixel colors. That's irritating coz you can't really post a bitmap image on your blog because of the huge size it consumes.

Using IrfanView, I was able to save a bitmap screen shot to JPEG and look as clear as it was saved on bitmap.

Then, I tried saving it on PNG and GIF. They all have the same quality, the only difference is the file size. Here are the results:



I've been using this software for years but only to have transparent background for GIF's. I just realized now that it can do more...

How about you, what software do you use?

♥ Blog Comments Stalker?!?

= Friday, June 19, 2009 =


One of the first things I do each day is to open my email.

A few days back, soon as I opened my Gmail, I was surprised to see almost 200 unread mails. Funny, that the day before, I remember having read all my unopened mails. It was a flattering sight at first, but then I saw it all came from ONE person.

So I thought, Oh my! What's This!? A stalker? (Click the image to see the screen shot of my inbox)



Then, I opened one in hopes that I won't get "too shocked". And this is what I saw:

It turns out that my other blog Inlove with Daisies experienced a weird comment bug. I opened other mails and its all the same. So I went to check out my blog.

I wasn't able to take a screen shot of it, but by the minute, a new comment floods in. Some were even like only 10 seconds apart. So, I immediately contacted JS-Kit, since they are the ones handling the comment widget for commentluv.

And to make the long story short, after 2 days of coordinating with their admins, the error ceased. You can see the history of some of our messages on the post itself. Saturday Seventhy and the QA section of their site (as of writing, it's on page5). On second thought, let me save a screen shot in case somebody encounters the same thing.



And of course, the most special part of this post... let me give hugs and kisses to the very helpful and friendly JS-Kit Team! Kuddos!!! Most especially to Igor Lebedew and Lev Walkin for taking time to look into the matter and replying to me!

♥ ON BOOKS ~ Tolstoy's Anna Karenina...

= Thursday, June 18, 2009 =



Found this great idea from The Bumbles... MizB asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  • Share the title of the book the teaser comes from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

He came up to her, bowed and silently gave her his hand. Had it not been for the slight trembling of her lips and the moisture that came to her eyes, giving them an added brilliance, her smile would have been almost calm as she said: "It's so long that we've seen each other!"


~ Page 399 from Part Four of Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volohonsky, for Penguin 2001 edition.

♥ Monday Crazy 8

= Wednesday, June 17, 2009 =



I know I got invited by Lani last Saturday but I only have time to do some posty today. Beware! Some answers may be too revealing! LOL So roll on the crazy dice!

1: You are driving down the street and you see the person you are dating/married to/living with walking down the street with a member of the opposite sex and it is someone you don't know...What do you think? What do you do?
Oh-oww... I hope he does not see me sitting in his car next to a person of the opposite sex, whom he does not know too! Who is actually at this very moment staring at me with a huge sexy smile.

2: The person you are dating/living with is spending a lot of time at the office these days after normal hours. Do you show up at work or call to see if he/she is there?
No. I make sure once he gets home I am in my sexiest lingerie ready to do what I know pleases him the most! Besides, he is working so hard to earn money for my shopping sprees! *wink

3: How would you handle it if they are not at the office where they said they would be?
I'll wait at home, leave the door open and make him come in a house with sensual music and lights leading to the bedroom. Once he gets in, he sees me under the sheets (with who knows what I am wearing or if there is any) and I will ask, "So where have you been you dirty rascal?!"

4: Someone keeps calling and hanging up when you answer the phone while you are at home with your mate or at a dates house. Do you get suspicious?
Pff! Telemarketers!

5: You have been hinting around for a little fun in the bedroom but the person you are dating or living with is obviously ignoring the hints. It's been a LONG time. How do you handle that?
I'll handcuff him to the bed, get a whip, and make him submit to me! *Haaa!!!

6: Your having a relationship with someone who disappears for a few days and is just not around when you call them at times with no real explanation. You have agreed that you will not date others. What do you think is going on?
He's preparing a romantic surprise vacation for us in another country! Perhaps, Venice?!

7: You are at a party with a date/mate, and a member of the opposite sex is quite obviously interested in you and keeps giving you the "look". Do you look back?
What do you do?

Simple. I look back, smile, then kiss my date while he is staring.


8: Describe your dream mate of the opposite sex. Use a photo if you wish.

Adrien Brody.... *sigh* (he actually looks like my first love and boyfriend)

♥ Saturday 9: Games People Play

1. What was your favorite active game as a child? Tag. I run fast and that's a great fun game I play with my brother and neighbors.

2. What was your favorite board game as a child? Cluedo!!! It's one mind game that I always look forward to. I always go to my neighbor's house to play it (since my folks can't afford to buy me one then). It's the snack her mom prepares for us that makes it all so memorable.

3. Tell us about a friend you played these games with in your youth. Well, I won't mention her name, but last thing I heard, she is now living in London. We used to like to watch inspector gadget and play Cluedo and both wanted to be "detectives" when we grow up. LOL

4. What is your favorite card game? Poker. Even as a teen we play this game, but we don't bet on money, we use dares. So the loser will be dared to do something silly or stupid.

5. What board games do you enjoy now? Lately, I do not play bored, oh I mean board games. I guess I could say "Chess". But I one was check-mated by a 10 year old and that's embarrassing! lol

6. Do you play video games? Which ones? A variation of Online games at FOG

7. Tell us about the friends you play games with now. Uhh, myself? But if you are talking about a different game... *wink*

8. Do you play any sports now? bowling and a little bot of tennis with the boss. *winks*

9. What’s your favorite sport to watch? Wel, I'm not really a sportsey type. But I do go to annual sporting events here that has anything to do with water races. Like, swimming, yachts, regatta.. etc. Like, recently, the Golden Hook Fishing Tournament

After changing the color, and clicking the special scissors under the "Geek" tab, here's the result. Background removed in a sloppy way. LOL

♥ Secret to no wrinkles: Spermine Facial

= Saturday, June 6, 2009 =


What the....

I was blog hopping through Adgitize today and found tool-tips.blogspot.com that posted... and I quote...

"the latest craze in anti-aging treatments is a sperm-based facial. I’m sorry, what now?

Called the Spermine Facial, it consists of slathering synthesized human sperm on your face and then running an ultrasound and infared light over the substance to help it, ahem, penetrate deeper. Townhouse Spa is currently offering this service for $250.

Apparently studies were conducted (can you imagine that clinical trial?) that showed that the antioxidant found in human sperm makes your skin softer and less wrinkly."




So girls, let our boyfriends be our new facial therapist!(?)

Who would pay $250 for something you can get for free?

ROTFLMAO...

DaisyGirrrl

Posted on :2009-05-29 05:10:28
without my knowing! I just clicked
"Unused banner impressions ( Assign banner impressions )"
Then ALL my credits went to one banner!!! This is a bug! Please help me. I distributed 200 imp to my other banners just so other BE members wont get sick of seeing one banner. Please I want to get my credits back. I hope this is still possible.

Thanks!
Brian

Posted on :2009-06-04 02:29:02
For some reason the code bombed out and gave you 4.29 billion banner impressions. I'm adjusting that and then adding 200 impressions to each of your other banners.




A few days back I had an error on BE. All my credits were transferred to one banner. Today I finally got a reply.

Above is what I got from my mail. So I immediately logged in at BE and to my surprise, the "4,294,967,295" banner impressions were only transferred to my other banner, which was active and running. So I paused this as well. Maybe Brian is still fixing it as I logged in. So let me check in a few more hours and see if there is any progress.

So the reason why I'm posting this is not only to document it, but keep other BE members posted too.
