Advertisers have a crush on you

Crushed pomegranate

Although Facebook applications are the real value of this social networking platform, it’s still important to exercise caution as to what application you’re about to install.

Remember the “Secret Crush” application? This was a widget claiming to reveal who among your virtual friends is your secret admirer.

It seems that a web advertisement firm used it to lure users to install an adware on their computer and many did!

Not the first and certainly not the last… Be careful my friends :-p

The Mountain of Fire

Overshadowed by the clouds, the thin air frozen,
Whenever that happens, it's as if winter came,
Still there's a warm light shaping the world around me,
I'm good, and you?

Often rather than sometimes, Dilbert's Comic Strip proves to be true.

Here's a short comic strip that a friend recommended me to read. It's so true that I feel it's worth sharing it with you.

Optus One Year Celebration

20071102 - 20 - Sydney - Optus One-Year Celebration

With the help of another co-worker, I organised a dinner in the city to celebrate the first anniversary of our work at Optus.

Even though few of us have actually worked there all that time ^^;

20071102 - 08 - Sydney - Optus One-Year Celebration - A big piece of meat in a dish

The Lowenbrau Keller restaurant, in the Rocks.

German meaty recipes are their speciality as you can tell in the picture. Good quality I guess, but I only had some veggie salad so I can’t really tell.

(re)connecting – City2Surf

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

Alright, since I’ve neglected this blog as bad can be, let’s try to fix a few things.

First of all, I’m going to do a quick catch up with some past news. It’s like instant noodles, it’s not that much exciting but it still fulfils its purpose: to feed your appetite or your curiosity should I say!

After the City2Surf

Yosh! I knew it was going to be a long run and the brochure didn’t lie about that: 14Km!

See here the proof, a map of the track from the Sydney inner city to Bondi beach.

With more than 50.000 thousand runners and raising $1049048 for charity this year, this race has been another terrific success for the Sun-Herald and me.

Well, long story short, I came 26427th and took 115m38s to complete the race.

Medal received after finishing the City2Surf race
Yeah! :-)

Some pictures of the event are available on the official website or on the Flickr gallery.

The world is black

The Spring Equinox fell last month,
But seasons return more than once,

As Sunday will see a new shifting,
Make the best of this short morning,

The world may be fading away,
but light always will find its way,

A time to sow and a time to reap,
When is the moment to make the leap?
