I started to look at PHP and mySQL today, seems like a pretty powerful combination. Only if I could find a free host that serves mySQL and PHP without ads… hah…
But inshallah I’ll find someway…
I’d like to make my comments program using mySQL, either with CGI or PHP…
it’ll be much faster and easier…

The Prime Minister has now introduced an ethics code. This is sad. Ethics codes have to be issued, our politicians don’t have the brains to be ethical without having a book issued by the leader of the party telling them how to act.
Shouldn’t politicians be ethical regardless of whether the “code” is there or not?

I added a link to the archives where all my previous posts can be found…

A good article in Arab News about Pakistan’s political situation. Written by Fatima Najm.

“But a benevolent dictatorship may be far better than a corrupt democracy. The skeptics are good for a developing society; it’s the cynics who cause problems.”

“So far Musharraf has been a man of his word. And that is what we need. What we don’t need is the international community forcing a Western-style democracy down our throats.”

good stuff… a must read…

Okay, so I made a couple of buttons. They’re simple, nothing fancy, no high-tech graphics. Just simple buttons:

I’m tired of the politics that our government plays. It’s sickening. Who are they serving? The public or themselves?
Why are they out to grab the credit for a job, even when it’s not yet complete. It’s not important for them to finish the job, just who “introduced” it is what matters.
It’s sick, pathetic and disgusting.
The Governments first goal should be to take care of the public and not itself…

After having written scorekeeping programs, match making programs, phone book programs, and chatting programs in Java , I returned to IBM’s Visual Age for Java IDE to do some more programming. I haven’t touched it in about a full year. I was rendered clueless. I had no idea where to begin or what to do. Stumped, bewildered, pertified, confused, dazed, discombobulated, lost… you get the meaning. So now I have to re-learn the language now. blah…

Quote of the day:

Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes? Groucho Marx

In the same month we saw Xbox slash their prices, Nintendo has followed suite with their gaming console, the gamecube. CNN reports.

Palestinians get response from neighbouring countries, Arab News reports.

I think I should make my own blogging system. That way, I wouldn’t be dependent on blogger.com…
But I need some type of motivation…

another Quote of the day:

Aysa to admi sirf life may douhi time bhagta hai, Olympic ka race ho, ya police ka case ho. Tum kahay baghta hai? Amitach Bhachan in Amir, Akbar Anthony.

My quote on the comment: hahahahhahahha, it’s hilarious. Atleast I think so. If you can translate it. Do it in the comments… hah…

Quote of the day:

Be like a duck – keep calm and unruffled on the surface, but paddle like the devil underneath. – Anonymous

My comments on the quote: I like that quote. I wonder who this Anonymous guy is, he’s got the most quotes under his name in my quotes book. Must have been really smart and wise. (I’m kidding).

I added an articles section on the side menu. It’s a collection of stuff I wrote and stuff others wrote.

I’m trying out new designs. Simple ones. The design I had before was from blogger.com, and the code was messy. So I decided to make the design myself. Obviously it won’t be as good. I must admit that I have no sense of design or colour. But atleast I made the comments thing work. HAH. take that…

If you’re wondering why there’s a ƒ(a) if the bottom there instead of my name. I’m using it as a nickname now. ƒ(a) means function ƒ at value ‘a’. ‘a’ being the first letter of my first and last name seems appropriate. I got the idea from my good friend, Zaker, who suggested I use (A)squared. But I was unable to get the 2 superscripted. I was looking at the sybmols and I saw ƒ and said, bingo! And here it is…
