As a hungry Book reader, I download a lot of e-book from internet. Some times we call it digital copy of book.
Do you think it is illegal? No. It is 100% free legally.
Let me show you the site first.

As I mentioned before, I install a Spamwords 1.1.3 plugin on PHPBB 2.0.22. After about one and half month use, I feel it is so good to provent lots of spam from displaying on my G2Soft Support forum.
It is like a Wall to protect the phpbb. The spammer is blocked and the IP address is banned either.
Let me list some popular spam words I used when detect the message.
There are three types of spam words.
1) Adult content;
3) fake software;
4) Other items, say, Furniture;
The list of spam words keep growing. When I see some new type of Spam, I will add these into the spam words. So next time some spammers try to post will be blocked.
During past 1 and half month, it blocked over one hundred spams. It is not including the spam post I deleted manually about 10 posts.
This Spam Words is good and powerfull. If you have a PHPBB forum. I highly recommend it to you to protect your system.
I have a MovableType installation with EnhancedEntryEditing (EEE) plugin on another server.
It is good to use when I need to copy and paste a formated Microsoft Word paragraph into MT post and keep the same format.
The only think I don’t like is the font size is too small when I switch to WYSIWYG screen.
Look the left one is the original EEE’s editing box, the default font size is too small, compared with the middle regular font size.
I’d like to hack it and increase the font size to as same as the regular one.
It is very easy to hack it. If you know where is the file to change, it takes you only 1 minute.
OK, let me tell the security.
Update: Bloggerwave is shutdown already.
I’d like to introduce this new site, Bloggerwave, with a reviewme like Ads system.
I sign up on last weekend and submit this Blog as participate blog. It took about 3 days to get approval. So, this is the first opportunity to write something for Bloggerwave
The Signup steps look simple.
1) Register an account on it.
2) Add up to 5 blogs and wait for approval
3) Take the opportunity to do the review, Buzz or Opinion, and write you own post on your selected blog.
4) Wait for approving.
For Bloggerwave, I still think the price is very low than others.
The price is just based on the topic, not based on your blog. It is not so good.
For me, I’d like to accept a price about $25 per post with 60 words or more. And I also like to doing the review by my testing or experience. I can not say positive because it pay for it.
I just do the review by my own decision.
I feel Bloggerwave can make more improvement in the back-end.
Note: This a paid review.
British Columbia’s Ministry of the Attorney General has introduced Canada’s first apology legislation.
The proposed bill will allow people and organizations to apologize for an accident without incurring legal liability or fear of voiding an insurance contract. An apology made by a person or an organization in connection with any matter will not constitute an express or implied admission of fault or liability.
Accident victims often want nothing more than an explanation and an apology for waht happened to them.
The victim get a apology and fell better than nothing.
So if you hit other people’s car in accident, it is OK to say “I’m sorry”. It doesnot mean you are liable for this accident.
On the other hand, it is nothing to say “I’m sorry.”
The Discussion Paper on Apology Legislation.

I went to Costco this afternoon and bought a pack of Duracell Crank Light as below.
There are following items in this package.
Two cable with USB and AC end.
One owner’s manual.
It is not just a emergency light. It can also function as a AM/FM radio and USB charger.
Ok, let me list the full features.
1) AM/FM operations.
2) Light Operation
3) Charging Internal Bateries
3.1 Charge by using Crank handle.
3.2 Charge by using external cable from computer USB port.
4) Charging External Devices, such as Cell phone.
Cranking at 120 rpm for about 1 minute will provide enough charging to operate the 3 LED light for 30 minutes, 2.5 hours of orange blinker, or 12 minutes of radio.
I do really want to have this kind of light. It is good for use when windstorm comes to power cut, or camp out of the town.
I paid it about $16.
