I have downloaded GAIM from http://gaim.sourceforge.net/ and tried it for several days and found it to be stable. Like Trillion, GAIM offer tabbed windows so that we can switch window to window much more easily. GAIM support popular IM services such as Yahoo, MSN and others. Gtalk unfortunately is still not included.
GAIM is portable and I run it from my USB thumb drive.
What Is Gaim?
Gaim is a multi-protocol instant messaging (IM) client for Linux, BSD, MacOS X, and Windows. It is compatible with AIM and ICQ (Oscar protocol), MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, IRC, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, SILC, Novell GroupWise Messenger, Lotus Sametime, and Zephyr networks.
Gaim users can log in to multiple accounts on multiple IM networks simultaneously. This means that you can be chatting with friends on AOL Instant Messenger, talking to a friend on Yahoo Messenger, and sitting in an IRC channel all at the same time.
Gaim supports many features of the various networks, such as file transfer, away messages, and typing notification. It also goes beyond that and provides many unique features. A few popular features are Buddy Pounces, which give the ability to notify you, send a message, play a sound, or run a program when a specific buddy goes away, signs online, or returns from idle; and plugins, consisting of text replacement, a buddy ticker, extended message notification, iconify on away, spell checking, tabbed conversations, and more.
Gaim runs on a number of platforms, including Windows, Linux, and Qtopia (Sharp Zaurus and iPaq).
Gaim integrates well with GNOME 2 and KDE 3.1’s system tray, as well as Windows’s own system tray. This allows you to work with Gaim without requiring the buddy list window to be up at all times.
No all dogs are born equal. Some dogs bark more than the other. Some breed bark with much louder voice and higher pitch. Excessive barking can sometime be a problem to dog owners especially those staying in condominium and those with neighbours in close proximity. In such circumstances, using a Bark Collar to control barking is definitely a humane way to cut down barking of dog concern. Innotek BC-50A is one such bark collar that some of our dog trainees at our training centre have tried recently and found to be effective. Two of them are the owners of Miniature Schnauzer that have excessvie barking problem and have since managed to reduce barking problem substantially. After some period of use, the dog will even refrain from barking once the collar that is without battery power is attached to the dog. After all, they have been trained not to bark with the collar on.
The BC-50B Bark Collar is the most advanced system available. It is designed to not only control a dogs bark, but it also acts as a training aid to teach your dog not to bark. The BC-50B is two collars in one. Unlike basic bark control collars that only provide negative correction, this collar also lowers the correction levels as your dog learns not to bark. The goal – No more Barking and No more collar.
Dog Size — 20-200lbs
Stimulation Levels — 7
Collar Weight — 4.0 oz.
Batteries — 6-Volt
Water Proofing — Water Resistant Collar
The Innotek BC-50A use 6 Volt replacable battery which is easy to find. Hence it is very convenient.
The Innotek BC-50A can be purchased at around USD 40.00 in USA and in Malaysia, you can possibly purchase with RM 350.00
I browse through Google Earth today and have a look again at The Forbidden City of China which I have visited many years ago.
It will be a place that I will visit again but not now as major restoration process is being undertaken now to bring the best out for visitors that is expected to flood Beijing during the 2008 Olympic Games. By 2008, the area to be open for visitors will be 12% more than the area open to visitors earlier. The whole restoration project will complete by year 2020, the 600th anniversary of The Forbidden City.
The restoration process will surely ensure that the The Forbidden City will stand and be around for many years to come for the benefits of the future generations. The Forbidden City still stand there today after more than 500 years, credit must be given to Emperor of the Qing Dynasty who continue to use the same venue after they overthrown the Ming Dynasty and continue to improve them. Most earlier dynasty tend to burn down the palaces of their enermy and rebuilding them or move the administration center to a new location.
The Chinese TV Network has film and release several documentaries on The Forbidden City and The Emperor of Qing Dynasty and I shall rely on those for better understanding on The Forbidden City before our next date with it after 2008 🙂
In the course of my work as well as leisure, I have used and try many FTP client softwares. Recently, I came to know that FileZilla, an open source FTP client and downloaded from http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/.
Once installed, I came to know that File Zilla is just the software that I have downloaded from www.ftp995.com except that FileZilla come without the disturbing ADs :-).
FileZilla may not have many features as CuteFTP Pro but it simply able to do the job beautifully. Uploading big web and files often end with success and little failure. Its ability to auto reconnect for a number of times which can be determined and set by you will ensure all files are uploaded.
Mc Laren Mercedes has announced that Lewis Hamilton will be the driver of the 2nd Mc Laren to partner Alonso in year 2007. The 21 years old Hamilton will be the first black driver to compete in this sport, making history in the process.
Pedro did not proved to be fast enoungh in the last few races of 2006 and hence the choice of young and aggresive Hamilton is surely a better one.

In recent time, we visited Sungai Gabai Waterfall in Ulu Langat with our furkids. It was an enjoyable day for all who went there. Most dogs got their chance to swim in the crystal clear water. We were there by 9:30am and stay there for 4 hours and left at 1:30pm heading back to KL.
