Yahoo Answers Features

This is my flickr photostream. Previously, I was using a "All Rights Reserved" license - but later few months ago, I thought I would share under Creative Commons license. The license now allows to freely use my photos but, must attribute me as the author.

Now, many people like Beth are using some of my images - I am happy for it. Even, I have used some of other flickr photos - only with attribution (only if the have said they are free to give their photos!).

Flying Caps

And, I got an email from Mike, Yahoo Answers Editor yesterday, that he liked this "Flying Caps" photo so much that he wants to use in the Yahoo Answers front page. At first, I thought (like you), it was a spam or somebody playing. Then, I checked, it is true. He has promised me to send a link when it is getting featured in Yahoo Answers.

I will post a screen shot. Yes, the concept was good for the photo. I should give credits to all my graduate friends who agreed to do this shot - they threw their caps at least 5 or 6 times. I took 4 or 5 shots, I am happy that one turned out good.

Ok, fellas, you are on the front page!

Perfect Lover

You would've noticed this "Perfect Lover" - Find your soulmate's details with name etc. It appears in Google Ads.

I was curious. I do not believe in these type of astrologies / fortune telling. Because, I was thinking of developing such a site - for fun. I wanted to see what they do and how they do.

It costed me $5 (Australian Dollars). You need to provide your gender, name and your mobile number at the site. After that, you will receive a confirmation code. You need to type it in the website.

After few minutes, you will receive a message describing the characteristics of your perfect mate.

Mm..want to know what I got?

Eye Colour: Brown, Blue or Green (sounds good)

Birth Year: Year of the Dragon and Rat (Ok, I'll remember these!)

Starsign: Cancer, Pisces , Taurus (Mm..something fishy!)

Name: Starts with U, H, T or G (Cool)

Probably, I should write a software to check every girl I meet to give their starsign, name, chinese year and eye colour ..to see if they will be my perfect lover..oh jee..!

If you find my perfect lover with above characters, let me know. I can help you to find yours. Post your perfect lover's details.

Just for fun :p

I love Movies

I love movies. Atleast, one movie a day I am watching nowadays (despite busy schedules) - mostly in DVDs and in Foxtel. Recently, I found about flixster - a social networking site based on movies. You rate movies - movies will be recommended based on your taste. You can meet people who has similar taste as yours. You can read all about breaking news stories round the clock. It is a good start - but the movie recommendations have to improve a lot. You can find me here in flixster. Come and join and lets us watch movies.
