KUALA LUMPUR, 21 September 2007 – Tradenex.com Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) and leading service provider of electronic supply chain management and collaboration services, today announces the launch of Tariff Finder Online (TFO), Malaysia’s first online search portal for trade tariffs codes.
Based on Microsoft’s .NET framework, the TFO is a powerful web-based application that allows users to search for the most up-to-date tariff information in accordance with the latest changes and rulings by the Royal Malaysian Customs (i.e. Kastam DiRaja Malaysia – KDRM).
Do you check out your web site’s statistics every five minutes? Does a drop in your Alexa, Technorati, or Pagerank readings make you lose sleep? Do you get an ego boost seeing your Feedburner subscriber count rise?
Have you ever got in a position where you want an icon for your project right now, and you just don’t have the time to browse through your icon collection?
Well, most of the time, Google Image Search would come to my rescue; but I’ll still need to perform quite a bit of editing.
That’s why I’m very happy to have stumbled upon iconfinder. It’s very simple to use; you just key in a search term (it even suggests them as you type) and then press Enter. Icons that match your search terms will then be shown to you. Pretty simple, right?
Icons returned in an iconfinder search result are licensed either under the GPL, LGPL or Creative Commons. So please be aware of the icon’s licensing terms and see if they’re compatible with your planned usage of them.
I’ve been seeing more and more irrelevant sponsored links in the blogosphere. In fact, I think the situation’s getting worse every passing day. Nothing kills my interest in a post more quickly than seeing an irrelevant sponsored link in the body of the post.
There are three reasons why I think irrelevant sponsored links are evil:
- Sponsored links are of questionable sincerity
- Sponsored links are deceptive and misleading
- Sponsored links benefit bloggers and sponsors but not readers
