It looks like a small upgrade for new features.
Let us have a close look about it.
- A faster and more efficient user experience
- More design options and our simplest and most powerful templates yet
- The best, most effective anti-spam solution
In the first feature, the most important is described as below:
Completely Rewritten Search – Movable Type’s venerable built-in search system has been rewritten from the ground up to be modernized, much more flexible, and lightning-fast. Now it’s easy to create custom-filtered views of your content.
MT-search is heavy CPU load script on my host.
If the new search can solve it, I would like to keep use it instead of Google Search.
It announced that Common tasks in Movable Type 4.2 are up to 100 times faster.
Do you believe it?
There are some free-on-air HDTV channels in the big city, such as Vancouver and San Francisco.

Let’s see some hacker skills on Google Search.
Enter following query into Google Search box.
syntaxhighlighter is a Google code project.
Update: Just found it is a new version for Syntaxhighlighter. It is a little bit different than the old one which I mentioned here. Please find the right way to use it.
It is easy to use and looks perfect.
The following are some examples.
1) PHP script
// Pull the array data from the lang pack
$j = 0;
$counter = 0;
$counter_2 = 0;
$faq_block = array();
$faq_block_titles = array();
for($i = 0; $i < count($faq); $i++)
if( $faq[$i] != '--' )
$faq_block[$j][$counter]['id'] = $counter_2;
$faq_block[$j][$counter]['question'] = $faq[$i];
$faq_block[$j][$counter]['answer'] = $faq[$i];
$j = ( $counter != 0 ) ? $j + 1 : 0;
$faq_block_titles[$j] = $faq[$i];
$counter = 0;
2) CSS script
This code project covers C++ C# CSS Delphi Java Java Script PHP python Ruby Sql VB XML/HTML.
Let’s discuss how to use it in MovableType.
I alway want to have a US Bank account for some reasons. Do you want it?
As a Canadian, I can visit US any time without Visa.
Let me tell you the reason why Canadian needs a US Bank account.
I do buy some stuff from eBay. More and more seller just sell item to US or ship to US address only. The most big issue is they just accept the payment in confirmed address. That means I have a Canadian Paypal account. I can not buy anything as a gift to US address. You may ask why not buy it from a Canadian seller. The answer is less Canadian seller on eBay.
If I have a US Credit Card with US billing address, I can link it to my new US Paypal account and make it as confirmed address. Then I can buy or sell in USA.
And also some online merchants, such as Amazon, has two sites. One for US customers, one for Canadian customers. If I use a user account in amazon.com, I can make an order and ask them ship it to Canada. It accepts Canadian credit card and will ship the orders to US address. If I want some books, I have to use amazon.ca site. You know, the price on these two site are different. The international shipment may tax related.
And some online merchants, do not accept Canadian credit card.
That make me think about to have a US credit card and a cheque account.
The following is the real-time chatting between CSR of Bank of America and me.
Just know this site and service and software, TVU networks
You don’t need to sign up. Just
download the client software and launch it.
There are hundreds channels can be watched through it.
Of course you need the high speed Internet to keep TV video smoothly.
A typical TVU channel has a bandwidth of 280-400; channels with bandwidth under than will usually be of lower quality. Channels with a bandwidth of 400-550 will be high-quality. Channels with bandwidth over 550 can work well, but only if the broadcaster and the viewers have very high-speed Internet connections.
I watch ROC President Ma’s speech live yesterday. Good video quality of TVBS-N.
I have a Home Server at home.
It should have following functions:
- Printer server;
- Fire sharing server;
- AMP server, including Apache, MySQL, PHP for testing purpose;
- P2P client to download something for fun with web interface;
- Backup server, to backup the files on the desktops in home lan.
P2P software, I use aMule.
Backup, I want to use Restore, but failed. They don’t have the release for Ubuntu 8.04. Someone said it is good on 7.10.
A lot of request for the 8.04 version posted on its forum. I have to wait for the new one.
The way to install Restore is here:
I tried to install SP3 on my wife’s Compaq desktop. It has Windows XP Home Edition.
In the first time. I installed SP3 within the Windows Updates. When it restarted after the installation, it did not boot normally. It failed and auto-rebooted, then stay in the boot menu.
I can boot in the Safe Mode.
So I remove the SP3 and downgrade it in Safe mode.
I don’t know what’s wrong with SP3 or this Compaq.
Later I Googled a guide tell me the problem is created by HP (Compaq).
First problem, affecting AMD-based computers with OEM images, primarily HP Desktops
Just like Compaq Presario SR1520nx. It has AMD Sempron 1.8 GHz CPU and SIS chipset.
To double check the problem, do the following steps.
You may not see the error code because the computer reboots too fast. ( Just like me)To force the computer to stop when it crashes, you need to set an option during startup. To do so, hit the F8 key during restart right when you see the black Windows XP screen come up. Then select the “Disable automatic restart on system failure” option, as shown below:
