How are all of you doing? I hope that all of you are doing well, I am doing well over here but I have been very busy lately with my other work and trying to figure what is the next step that I should take in my career. But beside that I am doing well though, I see that we are starting to feel the weather changing from hot weather to a cool weather and in matter of a month we will be heading into the cold weather. I am sure that some of you are not looking forward for the cold weather, also there are some of you are looking forward to some cold weather and that includes me. While I am more of a fall or spring kind of person, I am not talking about seasonal, just the type of the weather (temperature) and what it brings. We know that in the spring we would usually get a lot of raining and in the fall we would usually get less rains which that is one thing why I like fall because I am never a fan of rain. I am also not a fan of hot weather nor rain, I cannot stand them as I like the cool temperature which fall is what known for and the spring also have cool temperature but more rains in spring than in the fall. The bottom line is that I favor normal weather, not hot but not cold such as 60-70 degree temperature and secondly I am a huge fan of being stuck in the snow as long as only being stuck for a half week or a week because eventually we need to get out of the house to do some personal errands such as grocery shopping or doctor appointments and whatnot. I love to be stuck in snow, only as long as they will be cleared by a certain day (weekly grocery shopping, doctor appointment, weekly family’s visit or whatnot) and then be stuck in the snow again until the next certain day.

Deaf Created Internet.

Do any one of you remember what it was to experience the internet for the first time? Especially some of you who was born in the 80s like I did and the people who born in 80s or earlier was the ones who truly experienced the internet for the first time especially in the beginning stage and whoever born a few years later than the 90s will never truly have the same experience that many of us who was born before the birth of internet because anyone who born a few years later the birth of internet in the late 80s (1989 in March to be specific) would not have to go through that we had to go through at that time when the internet was born especially World Wide Web (WWW). How is it different you ask? Some of you may remember or not remember, when the internet was born at that time we had gone through the most difficult thing ever with the internet and that is trying to connect to the internet using dial-up connection via telephone landline cable and at that time not many of us had the patience for that kind of thing. To have the first experience in trying out the internet today is more pleasuring, would put you in amaze of how the internet works and much less of hassles in getting connected to the internet. Back in the days when the internet was just born, it was truly a mess because it’s not as easy as plug and go as we had to manually connect to the internet by adding several information such as IP, DNS/Host name, username, and more then once that we have added the information in we would have to make a call to the telecommunication provider to ask them to connect us so imagine the hassle in doing that.

Blogging Services.

First of all who doesn’t love blogging? Sure there are some of the people who doesn’t like to blog or don’t have the skill to blog because you would need to have a skill to become blogger and that is to know the basics of writings, formats, search engine optimization and management of the blogging service. Even if you have no knowledge in how to become a blogger, thinking that it would be too difficult to give yourself a try at becoming blogger and I am letting you to know that it’s not difficult at all to become a blogger although probably the only most difficult steps to become a blogger is to come up with a suitable name for the blog whether it’s hosted at somebody’s service or self-hosted blogging service. I have been blogger for several years, ever since the year of 2005 when I first learn how to code a website beginning with CSS which is code for styling/design of the layout because I wanted a unique profile on MySpace and then from there I decided to take further by starting myself a new website where I can blog which that was in 2007. In the year of 2007 was also the birth of this website JoshiesWorld.com so nonetheless I have been a blogger for many years but that doesn’t means I am expert at blogging because I still have a long way to go, still learning myself but I can safely say that my skill in blogging are in between of beginner and expert obviously.

Yahoo! wants to compete YouTube.

This morning I was reading some news on Google news of course, as my usual news source. There were only maybe two or three news articles that interests me enough to read and one of them were the one about Yahoo! search engine is thinking about to set up YouTube rival to compete the most video sharing website which is YouTube. Quite interesting news article I must say, and it does make me think a bit about it considering that Google competitor is Yahoo since both is search engines and have other features such as e-mail, news, auto, stock and many others.

My favorite would be of course, undoubtedly Google. Only search engine that I always get what I need and is accurate the most of time. However Yahoo is a good alternative I must say, and I used to use Yahoo all the time several years ago when I started using dial-up and first using the internet ever several years ago when I was a teenager, ah how I miss these days especially using the popular product belongs to Yahoo! which I am sure that most of you remember what it is, yes that is right! Yahoo Messenger.
