Burj Dubai is now the world tallest building

Posted by Naro on September 30th, 2007

Race for the tallest buildings is still continuing. Once we proud of Petronas Twin Towers @ KLCC as the tallest building registered in 1998, Taiwan 101 took it from us few years ago. And now, Dubai, the world most prestigious rapid development city in the world has another answer on it.

At 512m (1,680ft) and 141 floors the Burj Dubai, which is still under construction, is now taller than Taiwan’s 508m (1,667ft) Taipei 101. The final height of the Burj is a closely guarded secret with speculation that it will top off at the 800 meter mark (2,625 ft). Most likely it will beak the 628m (2,072ft) mark by a good margin in order to break the record for highest man-made structure, held by the wire-assisted KVLY-TV mast in North Dakota.

When completed, the skyscraper will feature more than 160 floors, 56 elevators, luxury apartments, boutiques, swimming pools, spas, exclusive corporate suites, Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani’s first hotel, and a 124th floor observation platform. The $1 billion skyscraper is in the heart of downtown Dubai, a 500-acre development area worth $20 billion. Construction, which began just 1,276 days ago, has been frenzied — at times, one storey rises every three days.

Another Portal Development

Posted by Naro on September 28th, 2007

I’m in the middle of developing portal for Persatuan Orang Kota Bharu Di Perantauan (OKB) at this moment. Thinking of the way the portal should be, I decided to choose Joomla as a platform. Not saying that I am Joomlanians, but for the sake of easy maintenance, updating, monitoring, and database administration, Joomla should give a correct answer.

Joomla is just another Content Management System (CMS) which are widely used in both commercial and individual portal purposes. Known as a Mambo previously, the Joomla community is scattered around the world and you can find many modules developed and contributed by this group of people. Apart from Joomla, PostNuke is another CMS that I have used before. Drupal, Xoops, PHP-Nuke are few names that have come across my portal development before. Each of them have their own pros and cons. You will know once you get used to it.

Referring back to OKB, it is just another NGO community who served for Kota Bharu’s (Kelantan) people who live and work at Kuala Lumpur / Selangor. This newly formed organisation have an extensive target, mission and vision towards people development. Not to forget the network link that arise from the society which will benefits all their members.

2nd level .my domain registration

Posted by Naro on September 20th, 2007

For the internet-domain-minded person, this news should be better than great expectation as MYNIC, Malaysian Authority for Domain Names now offering the second level domain (2LD) registration to the public starting from 1st November 2007. But wait, what the heck is 2LD anyway?

Second Level Domain is where your domain names only consist 2 part, [Your Organisation].[Your Country Code] such as sirim.my, usm.my and upm.my. The common Malaysian domain in the net at this moment is goes by Third Level Domain, [Your Organisation].[com/net/org/edu/gov/mil/name].[Your Country Code] such as farisian.com.my, ikramers.net.my and semesta.org.my. Previously, the privileged of having 2LD in Malaysia only for selected parties and MYNIC had hold a new registration few years ago. By having 2LD, the organisation can shorten their URL and can “trick” internet users by not revealing their kind of business directly. By slashing .com, .net, or .org after their names, people will wonder what type of business this domain holder is deal about. For example, let say my own domain name at this moment is naro.org.my, people will surely know that this “naro” maybe a club, NGO, association, alumni or else because the word “.org” represent an organisation. But, later if my domain goes by name naro.my, public will wonder what is a “naro” about.

As MYNIC has release the press statement on 17th Septembers ago regarding this issues, they also table the schedule for the 2LD registration. There is a privilege for those who already has an active MYNIC Handler (people who are already have their own Third Level .my domain) as below:

Timetable for implementation:-

Milestone Duration Remarks

So, for those domain hunters, what are you waiting for, it’s only RM 120 per domain per year (still expensive compare to international .com domain which is only RM 40)!

Posted by Naro on September 16th, 2007

How do bloggers make money through their posting? The answer is easy, advertisement! Nowadays, internet has become the most powerful medium for any kind of information to be circulated. No boundaries, no time limit, no hesitation, no traffic jams, no long queues, and yet, nobody cares what you’re putting at the web. Advertisement business can’t put aside. They are the one who has been a long time admire for this medium. When Internet Technology revolutionize from time to time, they follows too. At this seconds, there are many online advertisements company aggressively promoted their concept to advertisers and publishers such as Google Adsense, Advertlets, NuffNang, Bitvertiser, Adbrite, Ebay, ClickBank and many more. For all the selection above, Google Adsense could be the easiest and fastest way if you don’t want to left behind this money making opportunity. 

I have created a page section specially for Google Adsense knowledge-base, and hopefully all the posted contents could guided most of you, my friends, to establish more  Blog or Website with Adsense as a solely advertisements. As a publisher, we should know everything about the program, not just try to catch the money instead. Sometimes we may forget the rules and regulations in order for us to stay in the program. Once you have been banned, you’re banned forever from the Adsense program. Do no think to re-join it unless you know the real tricks on how to avoid being banned for the second, third or fourth time.

Some information which I share here are the most common information you can find on the net. Some are eligible to show, but some are can’t, due to strict regulations by Google itself. If you would like to know more, email me at cc@farisian.com.my

Motivation on money?

Posted by Naro on September 15th, 2007

We’ve all found ourselves in need of more money; to pay bills, to buy clothes, or just for fuel to get back and forth to work. But what if you could always have the money you needed, simply through the use of a motivation quote? Impossible, you say?

It is a well proven fact that the power of the mind can affect your physical health, your mental health, and even your surroundings. So why wouldn’t you be able to train your mind to produce much needed money o­n demand?

No, I’m not talking about being able to think about money, and then spit out a few twenty dollar bills (although that’d be nice, don’t you think?). What I’m talking about is using the power of a motivation quote to help yourself see money making opportunities all around you. Anyone with a little bit of imagination, and a lot of ambition, can turn ordinary, every day tasks into an opportunity to make money if they o­nly try.

Money Isn’t Everything…

Rita Davenport, a respected motivational speaker, o­nce said, “Money isn’t everything, but it ranks right up there with oxygen.” And, oh, how true that is. Understanding, first and foremost, that money is a necessity that we cannot live without, is the first step to being able to train our minds to find ways to produce money o­n demand. The second step is to find a motivation quote that will inspire you to look around you and identify all of the different ways you could be making money.

There are any number of ways to make extra cash, if o­ne o­nly takes the time and initiative to look around. Do you have any elderly neighbors who might be willing to pay you run errands, do yard work, or even clean their homes? What about the young mother in need of affordable child care? Offering your services to her at a much lower price than the going rate would be a wonderful way to make some extra money. Want to do your community a service? Find a motivation quote that inspires you to help others, and you’ll soon find yourself discovering a way to help others, as well as get paid.

Too often we tell ourselves that there is no way out of a desperate financial situation; but giving up too easily may be the very thing that got us into that spot to begin with. Use a motivation quote to convince yourself to find a way to succeed, and you may find your financial troubles disappearing in it’s wake!
