I do find this irritating, perhaps it is because to seeing a woman in the male praying hall and secondly someone to say so many NO. I still can't figure out why people are not allowed to take photos inside the mosque. We are not posing for picture, we are taking the beautiful arts above our heads (unless someone can fly and ask for someone to snap theirs).
I've been to so many places of other religion (Bhuddist, Christian, etc), but only to find my religion has many 'strict' tension of YES and NO. While I observe other rules and laws of Islam, but human-made-law-bind-in-the-religion-name to be one we Malays still had to have in the observation.

This one really caught my interest the first time I read it on an article. Ever since, I keep myself updated for its latest upgrading version. I even set it up in my laptop for personal usage.
I do somehow think that some day, the computing will advance to another stage where you can access the same OS environment from anywhere and while on the go. Use it once on a laptop and access it again as the last time you used it from your mobile.
As I had planned earlier, I shall run a personal dedicated server to provide eyeOS for some close colleagues. Perhaps, when I get my personal server connected to internet and allowing access from outside of local network. Got to wait…
While I do like the idea, eyeOS has yet to be a big and sophisticated enough to provide fully featured of daily working system. I need to use word processor and spreadsheet – and the last version I had used has yet to support Microsoft format on its own. Rather need to use OpenOffice conversion. I am optimist that one day, eyeOS shall be able to provide the same spectrum of usage if not the same length of capability.
Looks can be deceiving, but it certainly makes wonder almost all the time. eyeOS has good interface and pretty much easy to navigate.
I would like to see, what will eyeOS turns into in another 2, 5 or 10 years to come.

Joni was the girl who lived next door, I've known her I guess ten years or more,
Joni wrote me a note one day, and this is what she had to say..
"Jimmy please say you'll wait for me, I'll grow up someday you'll see
Savin' all my kisses just for you, Signed with love forever true"
Slowly I read her note once more, Then I went over to the house next door
Her teardrops fell like rain that day, When I told Joni what I had to say
Joni, Joni please don't cry, You'll forget me by and by,
You're just fifteen I'm twenty-two, and Joni I just can't wait for you
Soon I left our little home town, Got me a job and tried to settle down,
But these words kept haunting my memory, The words that Joni said to me
Jimmy please say you'll wait for me, I'll grow up someday you'll see,
Savin' all my kisses just for you, Signed with love forever true
I packed my clothes and I caught a plane, I had to see Joni I had to explain,
how my heart was filled with her memories, and ask my Joni if she'd marry me
I ran all the way to the house next door, But things weren't like they were before,
My tear-drops fell like rain that day, When I heard what Joni had to say
Jimmy, Jimmy please don't cry, You'll forget me by and by,
It's been five years since you've been gone,
Jimmy I married your best friend John.
(When I found this on Muzem's, suddenly few memories came like rolling)

Later, Google Chrome came into the scenery. It managed to suit me well, since it has the largest space I have ever seen. Less menu and more space to maximise a website.
Escaping back to IE doesn't mean all the problems would have been fixed and sorted. There are other bugs in IE 6, where at times it would crush. Hate that. So, it created a reason and needs for me to update to IE 7.
It has been a week since I am using IE 7. Now, I am spending much of my time on IE after been using Chrome since it was a little baby. Perhaps, when Chrome has passed the age and compatibility test, then I will turn and wandering the net's tidal on it again.
