When my boyfriend (whose name is Yusri btw) started writing about Ipod Touch, I laughed at him because I think it’s so useless and obsolete. All he did is just comment about the product and write directions already written by IT geeks but in terms even a 13 year old can understand. I even think he is crazy for answering inquiries for free.
At first we were excited when traffic picked up from the usual less than 10 per day. We had readers as far away as Canada, USA, Israel, Middle East, etc! He did not list his blog in any traffic website but it became popular anyway and was even featured on the front page of WordPress.
Then I brought up the idea of turning traffic into money. But he was really against it saying no readers would want to see advertisements. So he used the Donations button instead. Which I think is hopeless because no one would want to donate money! I was being realistic. But he brushed me aside.
I like money, and I am sure Yusri loves it too. So if you like what you see in this blog and is satisfied with the content, please spare a thought at the effort put into answering your inquiries and the painstaking write up of technical entries. So help us by donating!
And btw, further entries about Ipod Touch and other IT stuffs, are now written in this blog:
And if you’re a girl, consider an IT geek for a boyfriend. Most may look like robots, but at least you know your computer and other gadgets are safe in their hands. HAHAHAHAHAHA! You can sleep soundly knowing you’ll have a hero to recover lost documents and a busted computer. And maybe learn a thing or two from him about the gadget you just bought without actually reading the manual. Yusri has served me well for the last 2 years. 😛
That’s all. Hehehehe……
Thanks for the support shown. Though I’m am saddened that I’m losing readers, but that doesn’t really hurt me so much. What I’ve accomplished to do is all mostly written down in my blog, and I hope they can be useful to everyone out there.
Here are some facts I’ll never be able to get again. Now this blog is getting less and less traffic than it used to be. 🙂
Best Day Ever: 2,222 — Sunday, February 24, 2008
I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. Do keep coming back, I’ll hope to post more.
More geek stuffs (iPod Touch related stories too!) found on my other blog at http://ask-yusry-anything.blogspot.com
Well guys, I will not continue adding contents to this blog anymore. This blog will remain as the blog for my band.
For follow up topics on iPod Touch and iPhones, hackings, jailbreaking, please visit my other page at:
I am going to relocate most of my non-band related content from this blog onto another blog.
Although I enjoyed getting a lot of reads lately, it seems that this blog has become a little bit non-standard. I have loyal readers (I hope) and people who’d be willing to come to me to ask for help. I enjoy helping as much as possible.
And not forgetting being featured in WordPress’s BOTD and fastest growing blog, I’m just so honoured. But my decision is final.
Most links WILL be broken (if you have linked to me). I will not leave any trace of the post in this blog at all.
Since I’m getting more and more ready for my band Dermapthera, I plan to use this domain name (dermapthera.wordpress.com) as an official blog for the band only. I have been sticking to the domain name for as long as I can remember, and most people in the blogosphere will identify me as “dermapthera”.
I find that this could be misleading in the near future. Although I don’t see the band anywhere being successful in the near future, there’s still a possibility that we could be if we worked hard. Me and my vocalist have drawn out our visions for the future of the band and what we could do.
Hence I would like to take this opportunity to migrate to another blog. A new blog name, a new blog address. And I need a new identity. I don’t want to be remembered as “dermapthera”, but instead, as the “guitarist of dermapthera”.
When my new blog is ready, I will announce the address again. For now, I might not be updating new contents yet.
Sorry if I have caused any inconvenience. You guys have been great, and I have been enjoying a lot from blogging here.
Expected migration period will take one week (starting today). I will re-announce again once migration is successful.
P.S: The main reason why I placed all the tag/categories there is to reach out to potential RSS readers.
I’m sure you’ve seen this, but if you haven’t done so, please visit my band’s MySpace account. Though we got nothing to share at the moment, I hope you add us as friends so that when we had new songs or demos released, we will update you.
Though this is the same as spamming, it’s a little different. I’m not soliciting, and I’m not forcing you. All I did was request. And I did ask humbly too… 🙂
Well, here’s the link to my band’s MySpace account.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
I know my boyfriend would not like it when he sees this post. But for the sake of his sanity, I wish you guys would do some little research on your own.
My boyfriend has painstakingly writen detailed How To manuals for you guys, only to end up repeating himself in the comments. My boyfriend has a life away from the computer, so you can’t expect him to be online 24/7. So I would appreciate it if you can read the entire post properly and the comments posted by other Ipod Touch users; before asking the same questions that has already been answered. Otherwise, I’ll make sure Yusri ignores it. Questions that has yet to be raised, feel free to leave a comment.
This blog is a one man show. So don’t expect the replies to come so fast. He still has to do some research before suggesting to you something.
You can find ALL the How To’s in this link below.
