URL Cloaking

Yes!! Learned something new! I can actually do URL Cloaking for one of my websites! URL Cloaking is just hiding the full URL from the address field in your browser. So where ever you navigate from in that page, you will see 1 URL for as long as you’re using that browser window~

URL Cloaking simply uses frames. Here’s a live example:
<title>IRC Quotes</title>
<frameset cols=100% border=0>
      <frame src=ircquotes/index.asp>

The URL: http://insomniac.mine.nu/

Now to go get my daily cup of Nescafe~

The Field

There is this field opposite my secondary school. I used to lay on the grass there once before reporting for parade for Boys’ Brigade. Right now, the land has been dug up and an extravagant condominium has been built over it. Thinking back, it took 6-7 years for that condominium to finish. And I have been staying here in Ang Mo Kio, for about 10 years now.

Heh, I remember the cold quiet mornings where I walk across Bishan Park to school. I had a cassette walkman! And would either be listening to Marilyn Manson, The Offspring or Green Day. Bishan Park Secondary has changed a lot now. To the extent that it does not feel like I’ve studied there before. I believe the teachers that once taught me are no longer teaching there. Hope I can bump into them anywhere in future.

This sucks…

My first day of the Lunar New Year was spent whole day in bed. I was down for food poisoning. I kept vomitting and having diarrhoea. Couldn’t take it anymore so I phoned my mum to take me to a 24 hour clinic. The doctor’s consultation fees are $40 on Chinese New Year.[:(]. Together with the medicine, it’s a grand total of $61.

After taking the medicine, I slept for about 11 hours, despite having slept the whole day before. Feeling much better now. At least the headache and fever is gone. I looked at myself in the mirror and noticed I slimmed a bit. Haha. I didn’t eat a single grain of rice yesterday.

I assume the poisoning came from the arcade I went to. I doubt the shopkeeper ever clean his machines. After the arcade, I was eating snacks with my friend and I’m using my bare hands. He didn’t get any poisoning though. [X(]


Yay, bought my new graphics card!! It’s not being pushed to the max because of the slow CPU I’m on. [:(] . But I’m making bids for a new one online at HardWareZone’s forums. So far, 2 people before me have placed $60, $70 bid respectively so I had no choice but to bid $80, which is a very good price according to an IRC friend. The auction starter decides to run this auction for 2 weeks! [:(]

I had to downclock my CPU back to it’s original speed. The Hercules Radeon 9800PRO does not seem to work well with my FSB going at 110MHz. It’s now back at 100MHz. This means a slower CPU and I’m already beginning to see my codes in this weblog of mine, taking a little bit more time to process. From the articles I read on the net, every millisecond is crucial in running a frequently visited site such as google.com or yahoo’s. Every millisecond spells a huge difference in overall performance.

Argh…. I just can’t wait to get hold of the new CPU… That is if I manage to win the bid… [:|]
