How much is your Dot Com ?

How much your Domain Name worth?
Most of us are very curious on how much is our dot com worth? I've discovered a website named leapfish.com which can estimate your dot com with combination of various criteria.
Leapfish.com is a famous domain name value estimator that provides an accurate domain appraisal! Enter your domain name and find out what your domain is worth.

My two cents
I tried to check my Blog ahtim-theblogger.blogspot.com , the name worth $10.00
It's not bad, i am quite surprise to see my domain name worth $10 bucks after blog for 1 month plus :)

As you can see on the attached picture, I also tried to check on Liewcf.com and you know how much the name worth? It worth 1.5 million ! So, basically liew should find a buyer and sell off his domain name then retire :) Do you agree?

Blog Review - icalvyn.com

iCalvyn.com Overview
Calvyn is an IT Officer, he blog about his IT Officer life. He is now giving away free domain to who ever review his blog.

As i can see from his blog, he has put a lot of effort on posting ,almost everyday 1 post which is a good sign for a successful blogger. The overall layout is simple and almost transparent for all widget or advertisement. He has blog for about 6 month, and reach 41 rss reader to date.

My two cents
As a blog for 6 months old, i think 41 rss reader is quite low. Hence i suggest Mr Calvyn should concentrate more on increase blog traffic first, before put more effort on advertising. For blog interface, i suggest him to arrange in better order especially on the advertisement segment as well as chosen color. Lastly, hope he can upload his real photo into the "about me" area instead of sketch photo, this definitely will increase reader faith to follow his post.

Hopefully after he read my post here, give me USD$9.95 for me to register a Dot Com :)

*Update on 10 Sep 07 - Calvyn won't transfer $10 into your paypal directly unless you follow his instruction. This looks like mystery, i quit from this offer, don't waste my time. So you register domain with Calvyn at your own risk :)

See how Calvyn reply my email below:

1. i can specify my own "domain name", for eg: myownname.com
Calvyn: sure,u are buying your own domain. coz the whole process are done by
you, not me. That why i want you to do it your self so that all the
information are not aware by me

2. i only spend $9.90 throughout the whole process
Calvyn: yes, only 9.90USD, and i will send u USD10 by paypal after done the
whole process.

3. i wont leak out my personal information, eg: credit card ,address,phone info
Calvyn: u no need to worry, i don want your c.c number, that why ask u to do it
your self, and you may trust this transaction, cz this payment are done by
google checkout. except you don trust google.

4. i only register for domain name, but not other offer
Calvyn: er...(HARD TO EXPLAIN HERE, we chat in msn.)

5. i have control on the domain name settings, including use my own web
hosting( but if u want provide me free also can :)
Calvyn: same as above, answer "that why i wan you do it your self" you are
signing up in that company. not own by me. u have full control.

6. i receive your paypal money after i registered the domain name.
Calvyn: yes, i will send u USD10 after the whole process finish.

Microsoft Silverlight !

Good news for web programmer!
"Microsoft Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plugin for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. Silverlight offers a flexible programming model that supports JavaScript, .NET, and other languages."

This means, now you can forget about flash or dreamweaver? Give a try on Microsoft Silverlight to create your own web video application like what you see in youtube homepage.

My two cents
The plugin is fast , high compatibility and impressive.
With this new application, it help you to improve your web interface. You might want to download a free copy at Microsoft Silverlight.

Hack Google Earth!

How to Hack Google Earth ?
For Google Earth lover, now you can hack google earth by pressing Ctrl-Alt-A (on a PC) to bring up the "hidden software - flight simulator" for the first time. After that, ctrl-A or a selection from the "Tools" menu activiates it.

What is interesting ?
This is an easter egg software ! It's no Micrsoft Flight Simulator in terms of controls, flyability, or features (no sound, no weather, no autopilot, only two aircraft choices... I could go on), but since the Google flight sim has access to Google Earth's streaming database, the visuals are awesome. In most areas, it looks fantastic when your plane is more than about two thousand feet above ground level. Get down low and it becomes a lot less believable, except in cities with good 3D building coverage.

My two cents
Browse for the city that you want to travel, and start the flight simulator in google earth. It's awesome experience. Enjoy! :)
