We blog for the truth

ဟိုတစ္ေန႕က ျမန္မာ blog အသစ္တစ္ခုကို ေရာက္သြားျပီး ဖတ္ၾကည့္ျဖစ္တယ္။ ၁၉၈၈ မွာေမြးတဲ့ မိန္းခေလးငယ္ တစ္ဦးရဲ႕ blog ပါ။ (အစက blog URL နဲ႕ blogger ကိုညႊန္းျပီး ေရးမလို႕ပါပဲ။ အခုအဲ့ဒီ blog မရွိေတာ့လို႕။ Update: it is online now. ) ျမန္မာႏိုင္ငံ နဲ႕ ႏိုင္ငံသားေတြ ခံစားေနရတာေတြကို သူယုံၾကည္တဲ့ အမွန္တရားဘက္က ရပ္တည္ျပီး ေရးထားတာ ေတြ႕ရေတာ့ ကြ်န္ေတာ့္ထက္ အသက္ အမ်ားၾကီးငယ္ေပမယ့္ ေလးစားမိပါတယ္။ ေနာက္ ကြ်န္ေတာ့္ ဒါကိုေရးဖို႕ ျဖစ္လာတာက... သူ႕ရဲ႕ blogကို ႏိုင္ငံေရး ေရးရေကာင္းလားဆိုျပီး ေ၀ဖန္ၾကတယ္ဆိုလို႕ပါ။

At this point, I cannot understand why someone can ignore the people of Myanmar suffering. As for me, I cannot tolerate those generals manipulating our country, taking all the wealth of country as their own property leaving the country in poverty.

And another point is the use of word "politics / ႏိုင္ငံေရး ". What is politics in Burma. On one side, there are generals and soldiers who are dictators oppressing people. On the other side, there are "activists" who are working to bring down that dictatorship and return the power to the hands of people. Our country is in "resistance" stage. There are more than 1,350 activists detained in notorious Myanmar jails right now. Many students and activists were killed during peaceful demonstrations and during jail time. They are activists who sacrificed their lives for people, not politicians.

So, who am I? I'm just a blogger. I write what I believe. I write what I should highlight to create awareness. I cannot stay without speaking out when I see and hear that my country and people are suffering. If someone says, "ohhh... these are politics. you shouldn't write.", he/she is one of those people making the dictator ruling last longer.

In Burma, even writing and talking about our "father of independence" BoGyoke Aung San is prohibited. There is no freedom of speech at all. Oh... actually, there is no human rights in Burma, you know. So, when I can write what in believe through this blog, I take this opportunity to speak out for the truth, for justice and for freedom.

Reading Zawgyi-One Myanmar font

Now, I'm away from my PC and surfing the Internet from internet cafe where there is no PC with Myanmar font installed. When I cannot read some Myanmar blogs written in Zawgyi-one font, I use this little text box. If you have the same problem like mine, copy the text you want to read, open this page with IE and paste the text into this text box.

Search Attachments

I was thinking to search for the list of mp3 files in my email accounts these days. But, today when I check my yahoo account, I found this "My Attachments" link on side menu. There... I clicked on it. Wow!!! all the attached files are shown with thumbnail previews. cool.

So, how will Gmail do that. I looked in help page for search operators.
  • has:attachment » I entered just this operator and searched. all emails with attachment are shown.
  • from:david has:attachment » This will show attachments david sent. I entered » from:me has:attachment » These are what I sent.
  • Wait, file type I want is mp3. » from:me filename:mp3

Anyway, I know everybody can read help page and do it easily. I just thought what if you didn't notice this functions like me.

link!!!!
O yeah..... LINK !!!!!! ဒီကဗ်ာမွာ link ထည့္ေပးလိုက္ရင္ ေရလည္ မိုက္သြားမယ္။ ဘယ္လိုလဲ ??? မိုက္တယ္မို႕လား အၾကံ။ :D

ဘာပဲျဖစ္ျဖစ္ ကဗ်ာကို link တပ္တာ ကမၻာမွာ ကြ်န္ေတာ္ ပထမဆံုး။
ကဗ်ာ ေလာကၾကီး တိုးတက္ေအာင္တို႕၊ link မပါတဲ့ ကဗ်ာေခတ္ကို ႐ိုက္ခ်ိဳးရမယ္တို႕ ဆက္ေျပာရင္ေတာ့ အားလံုးကပဲ ကြ်န္ေတာ့္ကို ၀ိုင္း႐ိုက္သြား ၾကလိမ့္မယ္။ :P

အလင္းေရာင္တို႕ ရြာခ်သလို ကမၻာအသစ္ေတြ ဖူးပြင့္
႐ွိ႐ွိသမွ် ဒဏ္ရာအားလံုးလည္း ေမ့ေပ်ာက္ ေစရဲ႕။
ကြ်န္ေတာ့္ ရင္အစံုကို ရြက္ဖြင့္
အိပ္မက္တို႕ ရြက္လႊင့္ ခဲ့တယ္။
မင္းေလးဟာ ေလေျပညွင္း
ဒီ ေလေျပညွင္း ဟာ ခ်စ္ျခင္းတရား
ဆိုျပီးေတာ့ေပါ့။
တစ္ကယ္ေတာ့ေလ...
သူမက ကြ်န္ေတာ့္ကို ဘီစကြတ္လို႕ သေဘာထားခဲ့ေလရဲ႕။
(သူ ဘီစကြတ္ အရမ္းစားတယ္လို႕ ၾကားဖူးတယ္။)

My Firefox extensions

Like many bloggers do, I also want to share the Firefox extensions I'm using. I think some of them may be different from the ones you have. Here they are...
  • Tab Mix Plus: Tab browsing with an added boost.  This extension has lots of functionalities. It can make single window mode, add closed tabs list button (by clicking it, u can undo close tab), displays tab list at  ctrl+tab, put close button on each tab, session manager, crash recovery functions and so on and so on. You need to change the settings as your own requirement. Ohhh... I can't live without Tab Mix Plus.
  • Uppity: Navigate up one level. if you are in http://sub.domain.com/dir1/dir2/dir3/, you can move to upper level you want. may be, you might want to move to top level page http://www.domain.com/
  • Flashblock: Replaces Flash objects with a button you can click to view them. As for me, I feel flash ads are annoying. And some flash animations are burning my CPU. So, this extension block flash but I'm always free to see blocked flash by clicking on play button.
  • Launchy: Open links with external applications. I want to see page source in Notepad. I want to see current page in Opera browser. Now, my desires are fulfilled. You can add any application u like, such as Nvu, WordPad, IE and whatever relevant. 
  • Image toolbar: Provides easy access to common image functions. This one resembles to tool bar which appears when u point on image  in IE . 
  • AJAX Yahoo Mail: Yahoo has released new AJAX based version for yahoo.co.uk users now. But I don't like it coz I'm in love with this extension. You can view messages right in ur inbox by clicking a small (+) button. you can do quick reply right under the message. you can scan and download attachment without moving to another page. Virtually, you don't need to move to another page from Inbox.
  • Download embedded: download embedded media you like in the web page you are viewing.
  • Furl tools and Del.icio.us: of coz if you are user of these sites...
  • Download manager tweak: the name says :P
  • Web Developer: adds a menu with various web developer tools
  • Copy plain text: copy plain text without formatting
  • Hyperwords: Makes every words on the web interactive. I use this to open URL without link though it has many functions.
  • Colt: adds a copy link text item to the browser’s context menu
  • FirefoxView: If you accidentally browsed the web with IE, you can easily move to FF from IE context menu.

My name is...

Pseudonym or nick name or pen name or keyboard name or whatever you call, I will start to use the name "Myouez" from now on. And another thing I want to say is that there is only one physical blogger in this blog although you might see two contributors. When I started this blog, I thought I would use different pseudonym for different topic but I always login as "Dathana" and the other contributor becomes idle. Anyway, here I am, the same weird guy with different name. :)

UPDATE:
Ammmm.... I'm still Dathana as well as Myouez. :D  And thinking my old thought to blog different topic with different pseudonym. :)

Syndication from Blogger

Syndicationyay !!!!!! My blog has got RSS. :) Previously Blogger offers only Atom format for free users and RSS is for pro users. I noticed new RSS feed yesterday while I was adding madyjune's site feed to my bloglines. And when I check my blog again, I've got it too. wow!!! Now, my blog has Atom 1.0, Atom 0.3, RSS 2.0 for syndication.
