Early this year I posted that I have setup double backup solution to ensure my data is covered. But still sometimes the things just fall through the cracks.

I believe this holiday will mark this year of online shopping year. Myself definitely is sick of getting in the line, long line, to check out a item or two, for about a hour, only because it’s holiday. No, my day is not getting longer because it’s a happy season.

Posted by Charles | December 19, 2007 | 2 Comments

Can’t help showing off here item by item: The release of Flex 2.0, especially the new Flex Builder along with its independent pricing plan, triggers new high of RIA buzz. Yes, indeed.
