Moving and A Little Blimp

I’ve been thinking about moving a few of my blogs to another host and server, mainly because I don’t want all my blogs to be using a single shared IP addresss (for blog earning purposes hahaha). I upgraded my old hosting account and got a dedicated IP address, meaning only my blogs would be exclusively using that IP. Which is much better than sharing it with God knows how many sites on a single shared server.

I have also decided to limit blogs I host for every hosting account to maximize the earning potential of each when it comes to text links. So some of the blogs I have decided to move to my second hosting account and once I’m done with the transfer (about 6 blogs), I will also be purchasing a dedicated IP address for these account.

So that’s what I had been so busy with the past few days. Backing up, and doing the actual transfer of 6 blogs to a new server. I’m halfway through it, as I’m a bit slow and meticulous. I want to make sure all links are working and I don’t miss out anything. Also, I do take the time to test everything first before actually changing the domain DNS. At least I know for sure that when I go live, everything is in order.

After a couple of blog transfers I got the process down pat. It’s easy (although a bit scary at first) and it won’t really require much technical knowledge. There are a lot of tutorials you can follow and as for me, tutorials from the webhosts is what I prefer to follow. Thankfully, everything went beautifully when I transferred this blog. There was a bit of downtime (as normal) while the domain nameservers was changed and it was propagating but it was just a short blimp, so no harm done and now were live from the new host.

Once I’m done with all the moving, I’m going to post a mini tutorial here on how you can do your own tranfers.. complete with screenshots.

I Want a Samsung Galaxy Note.

Seriously. I have never drooled much over a mobile something in my life. Hahaha.. I hesitate to call this just a smartphone. I also cannot just label it just as a tablet. So its a hybrid of some sort. What I like about it is that it brings both worlds, the advantages of using a smartphone and a tablet. And perhaps the S-pen may be regarded as some as a throwback but I do love it. In fact, its one of the selling features of this phone/tablet to me.

Samsung Galaxy Note

Oh why did I fell headlong in love with this? I’m pretty content with my phone, I rarely use it anyway. Lol. And I do a lot of stuff online so I much prefer the power of a laptop to smartphones or tablets. So I never really got into digging and running for a new phone. I simply didn’t need or want it.

Or I was just deluding myself. So now I concluded there simply just weren’t a product in the market that I wanted enough. Until I saw the Samsung Galaxy Note in one trade exhibit. I was blown over. I love the display and while the size might be a turn off for some, well its a plus for me. I could never like browsing the web on teeny weeny handsets. So I lurve this one. It’s thin, and looks sexy.

And the biggest draw: I could scribble, draw and make notes on it. I’m a huge drawing fan. I sketch and make notes a lot. So this is a match made in heaven. I also like the S-Scheduler. It’s intuitive and just the sort I need.

It also doesn’t help my obsession that tech reviewers are raving about it. Read Engadget Review.

So now I have something to work on. It’s expensive and I’m still dilly dallying about buying it although I really want it. Hmm, I’m a a sensible shopper and I have priorities. But whoa! If I want to gift myself, this is IT!

Sony Splits From Ericsson

I’m sad here. I love my Sony Ericsson mobile phones. I know while everyone is clamoring for smartphones and all, I’m stuck with my two good old Sony Ericsson phones. It’s by choice and I couldn’t bear to be parted with it. For some reason, I love my Sony Ericsson phones a whole lot. Perhaps because I dropped them too many times but they are still alive. Hahaha.  It is serving me well and they do have awesome products..

Sony Splits from Ericsson

So now my tidy little cpu cart is upset with the announcement that Sony is now divorcing Ericsson. Sony has now taken over Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson’s 50-percent stake in their joint partnership and the company would be renamed “Sony Mobile Communications”. Its mobile phone arm would be integrated to its mainstream electronics business..

I realize this is a not so usual happening and hope that Sony would continue coming up with great products even after this. If they come up with a cool smartphone I might just be tempted to buy one.

Obsessed with Facebook – Infographic

I love checking out infographics. They do have some really interesting findings and info, hahaha at least a lot more interesting than looking for leather chair repair that I should be doing right now. But that can wait.

Here’s what I saw that got me interested. We’re pretty much hooked on Facebook albeit on varying degrees. And its pretty interesting to see some numbers and facts on the actual Facebook reach and influence to average folks.

‘If I Die’ Facebook App

I know this sounds kind of morbid, but I just can’t help but marvel at the ingenious apps that are launched here and there. I personally get so dizzy with the sheer number of apps on Facebook, but this one’s an attention grabber for sure.

Not everyone would contemplate or even talk about death. In some cultures, this is a taboo topic, but then again its a reality of life. And of course, since most of us are increasingly on social networking, its hardly surprising that technology, internet and in this case, Facebook be used to convey your ‘last wishes or words’.

This little app called ‘If I Die’ allows you to send one last video from beyond. This is a free app.

Its makers suggest that you could share a life story – or even a secret you have never shared before, which might come as something as a surprise to the 130 or so friends average people have on Facebook.

But you cannot just send your last message, you need to setup three trustees who should confirm that you are indeed now resting in peace before the message could be posted.
