Must cut down usage

Just got an email from my provider and it seems that they aren’t happy with the MySQL Usage. According to them , I have been using a lot of server resources and running memory hogging and CPU hogging scripts. they have asked me to disable it or optimise the script.  After searching , I’ve managed to find the culprit – which is no other then WordPress. I’ve disabled couple of options for now. If this thing goes on, I might have to do a fresh installation of WordPress or reconfigure the whole thing again so that it doesn’t consume that much of bandwidth or CPU usage !

Avoid paying RM 200 penalty for Maxis Broadband

 

OMG No Contract - Oh wait there is a RM 200 Handling fees if you say goodbye within 12 months !

Ha , thought of sharing this with you guys. As most of you know , I was an ex-Maxis Wireless Broadband user. At first it seems to be pretty good and the speeds were great and I was even able to run peer to peer programs. Then it went all bad , they started to block most of the peer to peer application and even gaming ports (blocking p2p is fine but gaming ports – thats madness). Thankful , I made a wise decision – which is to ditch Maxis Broadband and to switch to Streamyx. Surely , you may say ‘Ah..why streamyx ?’.Before I answer that question you must understand that we have limited choices here in Malaysia. Streamyx is still the King of all lousy broadbands here. If you think Streamyx is the worst – think again.  I Thought of sharing this cool tip that worked for me and couple of friends of mine to avoid paying RM 200 early penalty termination fees. Shall we get started ?

Finally – Proton is Going Green (after all)

I think its going to be the greatest debut of 2008. Proton has finally decided to come up with hybrid cars. Hurray. Guess they have opened their eyes on what is going on. Okay , enough of  hyping it big time , we all do know of proton’s past records – that is producing world-class cars  producing pile of metal junk on the road. If they did a good job , I bet Jeremy Clarkson  wouldn’t even go on and bash Proton. I’ll stop on my /b/ (bashing) here.

For those of you guys who do not know what is a Hybrid car , basically is a vechicle that has 2 or more power source (Just think of it as a Laptop – You have battery power or you can always hook it up to External Power Source) . This is ideal as we know oil prices aren’t going to be cheap in the near future as the resources are scare and oil/petrol is an inelastic supply (which simply means , you can’t increase the production oil just like that). Let us wait and see if Proton has learnt their lesson and who knows , this can be the start of something new for proton. They might produce a quality hybrid car !. Let us go by our Malaysian motto –  which is “Malaysia Boleh !”

They have not mentioned on the package specifications nor its details. We will just have to wait and see !
