Where in the world is sixthseal?

As many of you guys know, sixthseal.com is no longer operational and those who are searching for him are coming to my blog asking where he is. He had started a new blog at FireElement.com after closing down SixthSeal.com

Those of you who are avid readers of SixthSeal will be delighted to see him on his new blog complete with mostly his usual “normal” entries. Go read it now!

The last time I heard, he’s going for drug rehab somewhere after 28th March 2007. It’s gonna last for 2 years or so. Will we see regular updates from the rehab center? Only time will tell.

Give him some time and I’m very sure he will be back a different person.

Are you able to reach this site?

I’ve had a few visitors complain about not being able to access my site the past few days. Hell … I’m even experiencing it myself.

So I fired up an email to support which went something like this. (I must admit I was lazy to go into details)

Yo,

Fix the damn server …

and here’s the reply I got.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for contacting ****. I’ve checked the server countless times and it’s working fine. I even made sure that the cat did not trip over the leased line. May I ask what’s wrong? BTW, we’re having problems with our data centre. You may experience frequent downtime when accessing our servers. Go grab a bag of popcorn and chill for a while.

So there you have it … it’s “the” data centre.

Money Money Money

That’s the tune of a particular lady which inspired this post. She operates a certain sports outlet and joyfully hums the tune while attending the cash counter.

How do you spend your money? Are you the splurgy type or a darn pocket full thrifty type? I’m the in between guy leaning towards the thrifty type.

I think each person has his/her splurge items. Some splurge on clothes. Some on electronics. Some on books. Jewelry, cars and alcohol. You get the drift.

How do you manage your finance? Do you have more credit than cash or the other way round?

Personally, I try to avoid having too many credit cards. 2 is my maximum. I feel that the more you have, the more you spend and end up getting yourself into a load of debts. I’ve seen people with so much debts, they had to end up with remortgages.

If you need loans, current accounts or home insurance, head over for best debt advice.

The world is indeed fueled on money but try not to let it overpower you. Learn to control yourself :)
