Until today, I didn’t know what guitar I was playing on. All I know it was a custom epiphone guitar I bought on impulse. 😛
So I did some research. I don’t know where to start, so I thought of using the “skulls and bones” as part of my keyword other than Epiphone.
Now I realised that it was a custom guitar by a guitarist of “Backyard Babies”. So I though, I want to sample some of their songs and see what they sounded like. Went into my favourite music site, imeem.com, and searched for it.
Looks like their songs are more of the rock-type music. Can’t really generalize their sound, but it sounded like that. Kinda nice.
The hard true fact is that I wanted to get another epiphone guitar. But by the time I came into the shop, it was not there anymore. 😦 The one below is WAY cheaper than the one I bought (the above guitar)
I am definitely going to keep my eyes peeled for this guitar again. I loved that “skull” design. Just suits my desires. 😛
And I’m also trying to aim for this one too…
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
Dudes, if you are going to have a breakup, do this trick. It’ll help!
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:
AS OF 15 MARCH 2008 I WILL NOT BE REPLYING TO THIS POST. ALL NEWER POSTS/QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED IN MY OTHER TECHNICAL BLOG AT HTTP://ASK-YUSRY-ANYTHING.BLOGSPOT.COM
Firmware 1.1.4 is already out. I must be the last man on earth to figure that out.
Well, that’s because I didn’t use iTunes as much as when I first got it. So I don’t really pay attention to small little details like these.
Anyway, let’s hope that a jailbreak for 1.1.4 came out.
Hey apple, when the fuck are you guys releasing something that’s not just “bug fixes” and make a major update like version 2.1.0 or something. LOLx. I’m getting sick and tired of looking at the 1.1.x thing.
P.S: I guess zibri’s working on a new 1.1.4 version soon. Please go support him! Only he’s our saviour!
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.
