This week is my second week of school. Tutorials going to start next week and projects are already started coming in. Going to get real busy after Lunar New Year. That basically sums up my school life so far.

JavaScript In My WordPress Plugins
I have been making use of some of my free time last week to convert 5 of my plugins that uses JavaScript to use jQuery JavaScript Framework instead and also replaced the SACK AJAX Framework to jQuery as well. Instead of including packed JavaScript using Dean Edwards Packer, I replaced it with minified JavaScript using YUI Compressor. Minified JavaScript has better performance even though it is slightly larger in file size when compared to packed JavaScript because the browser do not need to unpacked the packed JavaScript. Also, I have moved the JavaScript from the header down to the footer as it gives better loading times. You can read about it in details on my WordPress Plugins Blog.

Caught Angelie Jolie’s Changeling last week. It was a pretty long movie lasting about 2 hours and 30 minutes. The start and middle part of the movie is pretty good, but as it gets towards the end, it gets pretty draggy.

I was invited by Claudia who is a member of The Digital Movement to give a talk about “Using WordPress as a blogging tool” in the upcoming Blogout’09 which will happen on the 6th and 7th March 2009 at the 8Q Sam. The first day (6th March) is a trade event. I will speak on the second day (7th March) which is open to the public. Tentatively my slot is from 12pm to 1pm. Expected turnout should be about 200 to 300 people. I am going to be so nervous!

Today is the eve of Lunar New Year, I hereby wish all Chinese a very Happy Lunar New Year!
