Great Camera deal – free 2gb memory card with camera purchase

Just found this great deal on Amazon, with the purchase of any of these (name brand) cameras you get a free 2gb memory card.  Pretty good deal since I always end up having to buy a new card when I buy a new camera.  Enjoy!

Great resources for Samsung Blackjack users

As I’ve mentioned a few times earlier (iPhone sucks, waiting for windows mobile 6, still waiting for wm6) I own a Samsung blackjack, my pride and joy. Being obsessed with computers and gadgets I’m constantly messing around with my blackjack trying to customize it more and more. This translates into “I break it a lot and then have to fix what I did wrong,” so I’ve put together a list of resources that I use to customize my blackjack, stay up to date on news for, and then fix my blackjack when my customizations go awfully wrong.

Good luck!

How to create an icon or favicon for your website

If you look in your browser next to my URL you should see a small icon that represents my website. This is called a favicon, or a favorites icon (since it used to only come up if someone favorited or bookmarked a website). I just created and added mine tonight! I’m a little excited to no longer see the plain blank white page icon next to my URL.

How can you create one for your website too?

For starters, a favicon can be created from an existing image or it can be created from scratch using an icon editor. The image size of the favicon has to be exactly 16×16 pixels. The name of the image file has to end with .ico extension. The default name of the icon file is favicon.ico, however, the file can be named anything else as well. If you choose to name it something other than favicon.ico you will need to add some extra code to your website to make it work.

To create a .ico file you need to use an icon creation software, you cannot rename a .bmp or .jpg file. I used PixelToolbox but Atomix. Download the free software, start it up, and choose “Windows Icon”, “16×16”, and press the start button on the top right. Now either paste an image or create your own! Once you are done, save this file to your harddrive as favicon.ico (or your other .ico name).  Now upload your file to the root directory of your website.
After creating the icon, you must associate it with your Web page. One way is to save the icon with the default file name of favicon.ico in the root directory of your domain — for example, Each time your web page is loaded or added to a user’s favorites, the browser automatically searches for this file and places the icon next to the URL.

If you chose to name your file something other than favicon.ico then you need to put the following code in the head section of your code (website document).  Be sure to adapt the code to fit your website name, icon location, and icon name.
<LINK REL=”SHORTCUT ICON” xhref=”” mce_href=””>
<TITLE>Page Title</TITLE>

Still waiting for Windows Mobile 6 for the Samsung Blackjack

As I mentioned earlier, in a post about when WM6 is coming out for the Blackjack, I’m waiting (and waiting) for wm6 to be released. In the meanwhile, since we won’t be getting wm6 until mid August to early September, I’ve been trying to make the most of what i do have. Went ahead and checked out the new release of Yahoo! Go for the Samsung Blackjack. This is basically just mobile Yahoo, has some neat features, but runs a bit slow. I’m assuming that may improve since this is just a beta release. Try it out, let me know what you think. Also, here is a link for those who are courageous enough to try out the leaked wm6 ROM for the Blackjack. Enjoy! (yes it links to the download for wm6).

Safety Tips that May Save Your Life

Here are 9 crucial safety tips you shoud refresh yourself about and keep in mind during an emergency situation…
Feel free the share these with your wife, your children, everyone you know.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do:
The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

2. Learned this from a tourist guide:
If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you….chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If ever thrown into the trunk of a car:
Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Geting into cars after shopping, eating, working, etc.:
Do not get in and just sit (doing your checkbook, or making a list, etc.DON’T DO THIS!) A predator may be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR , LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.
a. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you and the horn will automatically start sounding off. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it . As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5 A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor , and in the back seat
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door . Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs:
(Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN!
The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably ! in a zig -zag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP !
It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

9. Another Safety Point:
A woman heard a crying baby on her porch , and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird. The police told her “Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.” The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, “We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.” He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night. Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby

Here is the news I’m working off of:

the iPhone sucks, and this guy can prove why.

I don’t own an iPhone.  I own a Samsung Blackjack, and I am very happy surfing the internet with my 3G connection.  I’ve seen the iPhone, and yes, it has an impressive display.  The Music Videos Look Cool, You’re Right.  Unfortunately, I hate when items are hyped for reasons that just aren’t amazing enough.  My phone surfs the net, my phone plays video, my phone plays MP3’s and i can use memory cards…..PDA’s have touch screens….whats new?

A friend of mine pointed out this website to me recently, where this guy proves why the iPhone sucks by comparing it to his Nokia E70.  It made my day.  Check it out.

Blogging gone green

Updates have been sparse on my part (between law school, working, and traveling), but I am trying to roll out some major changes soon. Today I’ve added the Green Web Hosting! This site hosted by DreamHost. symbol to my sidebar. That’s right, Mofomon’s Blog has gone green with the Help of Dreamhost.

A “green” website? I know, it sounds hokey, I was confused at first too. It just means that the website (and the hosting service behind it) is carbon neutral. You can read more about what goes into making a site carbon neutral here.

Anyone else interested in going Green (or just looking for a good hosting service) should check out DreamHost, if you use this link you will get an automatic $27 off discount. I suggest you take a look, the $7.95 a month plan comes with over 145 GB of diskspace and over 1.45 TB of monthly bandwith. Its what I use :-).
