noknok PC Client

The noknok service, still in it's infancy is by no means the best out there, especially in South Africa. However, the PC client is one of the best pc based messengers I've used, if you get it to install that is ;)

Tip: Do not use the link provided by the install application if you don't have .Net framework installed. The link provides you .Net version 1.1 while the application requires version 2.0, daft oversight. Use this link instead or install version 3.

The reason I think it's cool is that it allows you to send SMS and MMS messages straight from your desktop.

The SMS's are free, but MMS's are charged.

Best feature though in my opinion, is the fart nudge, which I never get tired off, much to the dismay of many of my ref-faced colleagues.

[all variants] The Great Desktop Effects FAQ of 2008

Enable 3d effects on Ubuntu

CNET's Quick guide: Cell phone radiation levels

Check it out at http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-6602_7-5020355-1.html

What it all means
According to the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA), specific absorption rate, or SAR, is "a way of measuring the quantity of radiofrequency (RF) energy that is absorbed by the body." For a phone to pass FCC certification, that phone's maximum SAR level must be less than 1.6W/kg (watts per kilogram). In Europe, the level is capped at 2W/kg while Canada allows a maximum of 1.6W/kg. The SAR level listed in our charts represents the highest SAR level with the phone next to the ear as tested by the FCC. Keep in mind that it is possible for the SAR level to vary between different transmission bands and that different testing bodies can obtain different results. Also, it's possible for results to vary between different editions of the same phone (such as a handset that's offered by multiple carriers).

It's important to note that in publishing this list are we in no way implying that cell phone use is or isn't harmful to your health. While research abounds and some tests have shown that cell phone radiofrequency (RF) could accelerate cancer in laboratory animals, the studies have not been replicated. Cell phones can affect internal pacemakers, but there is not conclusive or demonstrated evidence that they cause adverse health affects in humans. Conversely, there is not conclusive or demonstrated evidence that they don't cause adverse health affects in humans. So, in short, the jury is still out, research is ongoing, and we will continue to monitor its results.

If your phone isn't listed here (U.S. customers) and you've purchased it within the last few years (the FCC Web site currently does not provide information on models certified before 1998), you can request the SAR information from the manufacturer or your carrier. You'll need the model number and FCC ID number, which is usually but not always listed in your owner's manual or under your phone's battery (you must pop the battery out). For links to the FCC's Web site, please see the More Resources section below. We'll continue to update the list as new phones are announced.

Marc Lottering - "Why coloureds can't be terrorists"

Why Brain-Ows can't be terrorists

- Ons is altyd laat. We would have missed all 4 flights.

- We talk loud and would bring attention to ourselves.

- Met free kos en cooldrink oppie plane, we'll sommer forget why we're there.

- We praat with our hands, so we'll continually be putting the weapons down.

- We would ALL want to fly the freaking plane, ending in a mo**se
fight with each other.

- We'll sommer argue and start a fight in the terminal before we even
get on the plane & one of us is bound to say out loud: "Gaan k*k man!
Dan hijack jy die f**kken plane alleen!!"

- Ons kannie 'n secret hou nie. We would have told everyone a week
before doing it, telling them: "Moet vir niemand sè nie, ho!"

- We would have insisted that the plane fly past Strandfontein Pavillion.
- We would have all lined up to get our photograph taken by one of the hostages.

- When we enter the cockpit, we would have used the intercom system
for a karaoke session, with one d**s trying to sing 'I did it my way'.

- We would first rob everyone of their Ray-Bans, cellphones and gold
teeth, just before we crash the plane.

- Our whole freaking family plus neighbors would have been at the
airport to see us off, crying their bleddie eyes out, and your mother
saying to the white ou next to her: "I'm so proud of him. It's the
first time he's hijacking a plane!"

- We would have dressed like terrorists for our airport go-way
clothes: balaclavas, jumpsuits, karate skoentjies, dark glasses, en 'n
mo*rse attitude.

- Two of us would have forgotten our passports at home.

- Three of us would have overweight luggage.

- All of us would have luggage.

- We would have all wanted to watch the in-flight movie first.

- Before we went into action, we would have all queued up at the
toilet to first gel our hair.

- We would have taken the plane for a joyride first, played the music
at full blast and try to park the plane somewhere where the chicks
could see us.

16 Things it took over 50 years to learn:

1.Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2.If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

3.There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

4.People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

5.You should not confuse your career with your life.

6.Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
(This one is very important)

7.Never lick a steak knife.

8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

9.You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.

10.You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

11.There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11.

12.The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It NEVER fails.)

14.Your friends love you anyway.

15.Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

16.Thought for the day: Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes; and it's up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
