Yahoo’s Surrender to Google.

Today, one of my colleagues told me that he searched a query something like “ts on girls pibs” by Yahoo and got the following result (see the picture):

Obviously, Yahoo cannot find the appropriate result for this query, but interesting thing is that the first result suggestion is Google. This seems to mean that I, Yahoo, cannot find the results for you, please go to the Google home.

A fun site to kill time.

I just came cross a really fun site. This site provides 5 sets of survey for each user per day. Users can get some "tickets" after complete each group of survey. These tickets can be used to join the draw for prize. Occasionally, you can get some cash after complete one set of survey. Once the cash in your account is up to 2 dollars, then you can withdraw it with paypal. So far, I got 0.40 dollars and 240 tickets in my account in one day, I would continue this to see what will happen eventually. I am Just curious to see if it is true. The site is named InstantCashSweepstakes.Com .

Earn money from making reviews on your blog

I have heard some friends making a good sum of money from their reviews on blogs. At first, I cannot believe this thing, because I have seen many websites which claim that people can make money from them, but many people got nothing after spending lots of time and effort. But I would like to trust my friends. After giving a try, I am glad to find this is a very good site for making money from your reviews on your blog. The website is named:, a really straightforward name. My first task is to write a review about a website: love4game. 2 dollars for 150 words, it only took me 15 minutes to finish this task. After I submitted the task, the task provider reviewed my task quickly and pointed out some mistakes I made. I did the correction then the provider approved my task in one day. I got the money in my account in no more than 2 days! But only pays me money twice every month. This is acceptable anyway. This is the link to the review that I made money: If you are interested in this website, take a look at the link below:

Irish scenery--Cahir Castle, Co Tipperay

Cahir castle is located in middle of Ireland. It is one of largest castles in Ireland. I used to travel between Waterford and Thurles (Co. Tipperary) by bus every weekend. There is no direct bus from Waterford to Thurles, I have to stop at Cahir to change bus. The bus station is right beside the Cahir castle. So I got chance to take deep look at the castle. I really like the castle. The thick and grey wall of the castle really seems to tell you that many stories happened there. The following history comes from Wikipedia:
The castle was built in County Tipperary in 1142 on an island in the river Suir by Conor O'Brien who is the Prince of Thomond. In 1375, the castle was granted to James Butler, newly-created Baron of Cahir, for his loyalty to Edward III. The Butlers of Cahir sided with the Irish in the Elizabethan wars, and in 1599 the castle was captured after a three day siege by the army of the Earl of Essex and was for a year put under the charge of Sir Charles Blount.
During the Irish Confederate Wars the castle was besieged twice. In 1647 George Mathew, the guardian of the young Lord Cahir, surrendered to Lord Inchiquin following his victory at the battle of Knocknanauss. In 1650 he surrendered again to Oliver Cromwell, during his conquest of Ireland without a shot even being fired.
The Great Hall was partly rebuilt in 1840.
In 1961 the last Lord Cahir died and the castle reverted to the state.

How to fix Not Acceptable 406 error?

I came across a problem when I was trying to build my website with dede cms script. The steps to produce are:
1: Install dede cms script and setup the parameters for mysql connections.
2: Go to the backend management interface.
3: Type username and password, then click sumbit button to submit the form
4: A following message was given.

Not Acceptable
An appropriate representation of the requested resource /dede/login.php could not be found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/1.3.37 Server at Port 80

After research, the way to fix the problem is:
Create or edit a text file named .htaccess for website's root directory and add the following code:
<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
