Golden Chersonese

I don’t know why, but I find it surprising no one has registered the domain names ‘golden-chersonese.com’ or its variations.

If I had a business of some sort, I might find some use for the name. Maybe a travel-related website. Or something.

I know, I really should get back to work.

The Hustler and Liverpool’s destiny

I’ll admit – The Hustler Diaries is one those NSFW blogs I’d file under ‘Guilty-Pleasures-That-You-Would-Not-Admit-To’.

Nevetheless, I (and I’m sure there are others like me) know enough about the ways of the ‘Internets’ to know that at least some of the stuff on that blog is surely nothing more than hot air.

Still makes for hot-and-heavy reading, no doubt…

But when I came across this very intereting post (by way of Trace), I have to say I was taken by surprise.

Not because the Hustler got busted, but because of the manner in which he got busted. Those pics he posted in his (until-recently) very popular entries regarding the uses of a digital camera have enough clues in the background to reveal the fictional nature of the posts.

(Do take note that the ‘self-incriminating’ posts have now been removed from the blog.)

But, then again, how many of us were paying attention to the background, eh? ;)

Nevertheless, I don’t really care that he got caught out, just as long as everyone now understands that some (if not all) of the stuff you read in that (and other similar-themed blogs) maybe nothing more than the result of a fertile imagination.

Now, on to something about Liverpool.

Thanks for keeping it going, Aiz

It says a lot about the guy’s stature among the Malaysian blogging public that most of us can refer to him as ‘Aiz‘ despite most of us not having met him.

Anyway, without getting too sappy, I just wanna say to the Malaysian blog ‘taiko‘:

Thanks for keeping PPS alive, dude. Much appreciated.

Ahem. OK, that’s as much gratitude I can display without sounding gay.

I didn’t watch the game last night (this morning), because I needed to be at my alertest today.

But I’ll be honest – I did NOT expect us to escape defeat in Turin.

But we did – and all day now I’ve been feeling like I’m in 7th heaven.

I was too young to remember the last time Liverpool made it to the semis, so this is something new for me and millions of Liverpool supporters of my generation.

While our REAL target this season remains qualification for next season’s Champions League, it must be said that, considering the circumstances (new manager, terrible number of injuries, losing Owen pre-season), we have still managed to reach a domectic cup final and the semis of the Champions League.

All-in-all, a decent season by anyone’s (except maybe Chelsea’s) standards.

And of course, we now get the chance to ‘repay’ Chelsea after the League Cup defeat. Bring it.

Anyway, regardless of how the season pans out, I am nevertheless confident (more so than at any time this past few months) that we’ve got the absolute right man at the helm to take this club to greater heights – and for the first time in years, I feel those heights are beginning to look very climb-able…..

Walk On.

Lorem Ipsum and Yuri

Anyone who has ever designed and/or developed websites will be familiar with the old Lorem Ipsum text.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

From Wikipedia:

Lorem ipsum (lipsum for short) is the standard placeholder text used since the 1500s in the publishing and graphic design industry. It is used to demonstrate the elements of graphic presentation, such as fonts, typography, and layout. It also serves as the placeholder text in the mock-ups of visual design projects before the actual words are inserted into the finished product. When used in this manner, it is also called greeking.

Because lorem ipsum resembles classical Latin, it often arouses curiosity about its meaning; however it is intended to have none. When text is readable, people tend to focus on what the words are saying; when displaying a typeface or a design, publishers use lorem ipsum to direct the focus on the presentation instead of on the content. Additionally, lorem ipsum approximates a normal distribution of letters in English. This also helps to shift the focus to the presentation.

Now I’ve been using this text for as long as I can remember, and I’ve gotten tired of seeing it so many times. Fortunately, there’s now an alternative set of dummy text to insert into those under-construction webpages: Malevole Dummy Text Generator! (Discovered by way of Wil Wheaton Dot Net).

This is my boss, Jonathan Hart, a self-made millionaire, he’s quite a guy. This is Mrs H., she’s gorgeous, she’s one lady who knows how to take care of herself. By the way, my name is Max. I take care of both of them, which ain’t easy, ’cause when they met it was MURDER!

Top Cat! The most effectual Top Cat! Who’s intellectual close friends get to call him T.C., providing it’s with dignity. Top Cat! The indisputable leader of the gang. He’s the boss, he’s a pip, he’s the championship. He’s the most tip top, Top Cat.

Thunder, thunder, thundercats, Ho! Thundercats are on the move, Thundercats are loose. Feel the magic, hear the roar, Thundercats are loose. Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats! Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats! Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats! Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats! Thundercats!

Knight Rider, a shadowy fight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless in a world of criminals who operate above the law.

Hong Kong Phooey, number one super guy. Hong Kong Phooey, quicker than the human eye. He’s got style, a groovy style, and a car that just won’t stop. When the going gets tough, he’s really rough, with a Hong Kong Phooey chop (Hi-Ya!). Hong Kong Phooey, number one super guy. Hong Kong Phooey, quicker than the human eye. Hong Kong Phooey, he’s fan-riffic!

I’m aware that this doesn’t fulfil the criteria of focussing a client’s attention on the presentation rather than the words, but it sure is a lot better to look at while you’re grappling with missing semi-colons and unclosed curly braces….

Heck, I might even use this during those days when I have nothing to blog – which, obviously, is quite often these days…..

P.S. Also, a quick shoutout to all my friends celebrating Yuri’s Night tonight!! WHASSUP FELLAS!!
