Cashed out my second nuffnang income for RM50.16 in 4 months

Some of you may take a shorter time to cash out and some do cash out monthly in the region of thousands like red mummy. But I am happy to say that I managed to cash out the minimum amount of RM50.16 in 4 months since the last cash out was in June. I have several buffered earnings, some metered earnings just like the rest of the bloggers. Above is a screen shot of my second cash out and in a months' time or so, I will get my second Nuffnang cheque. Yay, more cash to my savings account. I treat this as an allowance from the internet and Nuffnang. Thank you Nuffnang!

Sammy's Adventure : The Secret Passage (3D Movie)

Sammy, a sea turtle, hatches on a deserted beach and tries to climb out of the hole where he hatched. Being caught by a seagull, he struggles for his life and manages to escape, as the seagull clashes in the air with a another seagull, also carrying its prey, who turns out to be a female hatchling sea turtle, Shelly.

Sammy falls onto an old raft and gets carried into the open ocean, losing Shelly. In the ocean he meets another hatchling, Roy, who tells him the story of a "turtle paradise" on an island called "Lapagos", and they together start their voyage there. Later, the two get caught by trawls. Sammy is released back into the sea by the fishermen, but loses Roy.

Washed onto the shore in California, he is picked up by a hippie woman and lives as a pet in the hippie commune with Vera, another female sea turtle, who is older than Sammy, and Catoff, a cat, who claims to be French. On a Christmas evening the hippies draw a peace sign on his shell to sign him as the peace ambassador. When the hippies see that Sammy and Vera won't mate, they release Vera. The police evicts the hippie commune from the beach, and Sammy decides to return back to the sea.

There he meets Vera and a young female sea turtle who is attacked by a shark. Vera and Sammy save the turtle who turns out to be Shelly, his childhood friend. They decide to travel together to the paradise islands, but Shelly gets lost in the sea.

Vera tells Sammy to swim to the "cold waters". Sammy finds an old refrigerator drawn by the humans and uses it to travel to Antarctic. An albatross he meets on his journey tells him that the paradise island can be only be reached through a "secret passage where the fresh waters run". In the Antarctic waters Sammy meets a fin whale who barely escapes a harpoon from a whaling ship.

The harpoon destroys the refrigerator, but Sammy is saved by the anti-whaling protesters and placed into the sea animal shelter where he finds Shelly, Catoff and people from the hippie commune (who now work in the shelter). The ex-hippie recognized the peace sign on Sammy's shell.

Shelly and Sammy are released into the ocean. They decide to find the secret passage and use it to travel to the paradise island. They manage to find the passage (which turns out to be Panama Canal) but get separated as they try to pass a lock. As he searches Shelly, Sammy encounters two sea turtles that urge him to help their friend who got trapped in an intermodal container. Sammy rescues the turtle, who turns out to be his old friend Roy. They swim together to a wrecked Spanish galleon where Roy lives with Rita, his girlfriend.

Being told about Shelly, Rita remembers her and advices Sammy to search for her in the galleon. Sammy finds Shelly being courted by another sea turtle. Disappointed and upset, Sammy returns to his friends only to find out that the turtle who courted Shelly is a playboy but has a strong relationship with another female. Together with Roy and Albert, a shark who lost his teeth, they set up a fake shark attack on Shelly to let Sammy save her again and win her heart. Shelly and Sammy then reunite and, along with Roy and Rita, return to the beach they hatched.

The closing scene of the movie shows Sammy helping one of his new-hatched grandsons to climb out of the hole.

Windows 7 can Welcome with Voice Message during Logon

Your Windows 7 PC can welcome you with an audio voice message when you logon with your username. Yes, you can setup the voice welcome facility by simple addition in your Windows PC without any additional software. Once I completed the addition suggested in below steps, my PC performs a voice message like “Hey Sanjeev, Welcome to your Windows PC” at the time of logon. You can set a message of your choice as well.

Trick to get Welcome Voice Message during Logon on Windows 7 PC

1. Copy below mentioned code and paste in a notepad

Dim speaks, speech
speaks=”Hi Diana, Welcome to your Computer”
Set speech=CreateObject(“sapi.spvoice”)
speech.Speak speaks

2. Save the file as .vbs file with any name of your choice, for example test.vbs file.

3. In place of “Hi Diana, Welcome to your computer”, you can write any message of your choice.

4. Now move the .vbs file into “startup” folder. You can get the startup folder by right clicking on the “Windows button” i.e. Start button on PC and select explore. Once you moved the test.vbs file over there, you can restart your computer and hear the message at the time of logon.

Location of Startup folder in Windows 7,
C:\Users\%username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\

That’s it. This trick works on every edition of Windows 7. I am not sure whether this works in Vista or not, you can try and share your feedback. this trick doesn’t work on Windows XP SP1 machine, not sure for Windows XP SP3 as well.

Anyway, by using this trick, you can impress your friends and family members by showing them your talking PC.
