I have been using Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125 (KIS for short) for some time now, this version was released on the 10th this month. Its considered to be a beta product since Kaspersky did not release this on their official website…although they did release the KIS 7.0.0.124 on the Russian website. I have heard rumors that they are going to release the version 7 of their products (Anti-Virus and Internet Security) on 1st of August…and the rumors turned out to be quite accurate. But how come there is no information or trial version on the official website? Well…you have to dig a little deeper to find it…at least for now. (more…)

The Quick Tabs function in Internet Explorer 7 (IE7 for short) is really useful and innovative. If you are the kind of person like me who uses tabs a lot, you will find the Quick Tabs function will save you a lot of time. Instead of checking which page has finished loading, you can see all of them at the same time πŸ™‚ But what if you mainly use Firefox as your web browser, does this means you have to go back to the old way of checking which tab has finished loading? Well, showcase for Firefox solves the problem! (more…)

In Internet Explorer, the proxy settings can be automatically detected, but that is not the case with Firefox. In Firefox, you have to manually set the proxy before you can use our Uni’s Network. Although the process of manually changing the proxy settings is not too difficult, it can be a pain if you have to do it every now and then. One of the good things about Firefox is that it offer developers the opportunity to develop Add-ons for Firefox to add more functionalities. With FoxyProxy, proxy switching in Firefox is only two clicks away πŸ™‚ So…how do we set this up?

Actually I was quite surprised to see people from Dell to consider my idea because I only got 250 points! This morning I had a look of my post and discovered that someone from Dell actually replied and change the status to **UNDER REVIEW**. It was from someone called john_p. The other idea that I have got is only 10 points behind, hopefully someone will find it useful. In fact, the NEC E2000 that I fixed last weekend already have the laptop leg idea implemented πŸ™‚

If you like the ideas that I have got, please vote for me πŸ™‚ Thanks.

  1. DVDs / pre-loaded Video Tutorials that teaches you how to use your newly purchased Dell computers
  2. Adding “keyboard legs” to laptops

I have been using the Google Calendar for some time now; mainly for organizing my time table. I have never noticed the SMS notification until I really had a good look into the settings during my winter holiday a few weeks ago. The SMS notification is great…but not too sure how much they are charging for this service. Last week I heard Brendan (my Head of Department) saying that he uses the SMS notification as well, and it seems to be free! To make things clear, I emailed Vodafone but I haven’t got any reply from them yet 😦 Anyway, here is how to set up the SMS notification in Google Calendar: (more…)
