updating the yahoo…again

in less than a month, i updated my yahoo messenger program again. yeah, i want try to be up to date. apparently yahoo has release a full new version of their messaging client, that is, version 8. i thought it is still in beta. i see nothing new there except they put some bridging system that enables yahoo users to chat with msn users. that’s cool btw. oh, and they stuff in some plug-ins features that gives us options to add functions or something, whatever.

of course, with the new messenger, there’s always the annoying advertisement banner. and yes, kind people out there is always helpful in giving us the way to remove that thing. head over here for the removal steps or just download this registry edit file and execute that file (no worries lah, the file won’t messed up your computer registry). after that, delete a file called ‘urls.xml’ in the ym’s ‘cache’ folder. be careful and enjoy.

it was saturday and i was at this place from morning, doing somebody elses work. lucky that i got paid for that. just my luck. because of the boredom, i asked a friend to watch a movie with me after i finished with that work. just my luck, somebody paid for my ticket. what show did i watch? ‘just my luck’. i’m not really keen in seeing a makeout movie or teen flick crap like this or even watching lindsay lohan or her boobs hanging here and there but apparently that is the only movie not sold out that day. well uh, no luck there. how was it? i’m not really paying attention to that movie. go see it yourself.

been to this thing?

yeah, i went to muzium shah alam yesterday for this. apparently i’m in charge of organizing a field trip for my ‘mentor-mentee’ group. bringing them there and showing off shah alam a little bit. i don’t know if rm5 (for the ticket) is worth it, since some of them said it’s a little too pricy for the event. yeah, maybe a little. plus, there is this very long queue and waiting, just to get inside.

anywhoo, it was okay. got a glimpse of ‘something’ there. except for the dumbass overzealous group of people behind me. what’s the effin’ idea of walking too close behind me, like glued behind me or something. very annoying. feels like want to punch somebody. duhh…some people don’t know how to relax.
