I am still here

Sorry for being less frequent on blog updates recently. I am still around, but a bit busy recently. There are a few entries planned (and photos taken), but too lazy on writing them up. My bad.

Some other bits and pieces. Over the last few weeks, I've been writing my own PHP and MySQL program for a booking system for Laurent's cooking school. Somehow I just can't find one available that suits our need. Almost all the programs or applications available are too complicated for us. And since I am not a professional programmer, it did take time to complete. Anyway, my program works.

(to Don: Antony is poor, he resorted to DIY solution)

(to Don: We still can't accept credit cards online, as we haven't had a certificate for SSL.)

Ordering books from Don's American Amazon.com is much cheaper than buying from local bookshops even after international shipping. Most bookshops would simply list the price (AUD) that is 2 times or more of the price tag in USD. And I ordered two books from Amazon.com. (to Don: Antony is poor, he hunts for the cheapest place to get the book.)

Apple has announced the iPad releasing date (3rd April 2010) in Don's advanced United States of America. Lucky for Don. Apple said the iPad would be available in Australia in late April with no pricing information yet.
Laurent told me that I should get the 3G + Wi-Fi model, and Don told me that I should get the cheapest Wi-Fi model (without 3G) if I insist on getting one. I am still unsure if I am getting an iPad or not. The iPad is merely 0.68kg (Wi-Fi model) or 0.78kg (3G + Wi-Fi model), which is a whole lot lighter than my 2-year-old MacBook Pro weighing at 2.45kg.

I know Don has no problem carrying 5.2 kg of batteries (on top of his superfast 64-bit dual-processor laptop), I admit I am not as strong as him.
