Happy leap year

globeHey everyone! Just wanted to say Happy “Leap year” today! February 29, 2008! Also, Happy Birthday today to those of you who are Feb. 29th babies! :D

veryone should make a good memory today! It only comes once every four years you know. ;)

A person born on February 29 may be called a “leapling” or “leaper”[10]. In common years they usually celebrate their birthdays on 28 February or 1 March.

For legal purposes, their legal birthdays depend on how different laws count time intervals. In Taiwan, for example, the legal birthday of a leapling is 28 February in common years, so a Taiwanese leapling born on February 29, 1980 would have legally reached 18 years old on February 28, 1998.

digsby: IM, Email and Social Networks all in one!

digsbyI recently came across a new application called digsby which is basically the Instant Messenger that everyone wants! It’s free! At the moment it is still a private beta product, invite only. However, I have some ways that you can go ahead an get it now!

If you would like to try out the multisystem instant-messaging and social-networking client Digsby before it’s released to the general public, we can help you out. Go ahead and download the application here. Once you do, use the code CNET to unlock it. There are several thousand invitations reserved.

Basically, go to digsby.com and download the the application. During installation you’ll be prompted to create a new account and also enter an invitation code. After googling for a bit I came across three codes that you can use:

  • CNET
  • techmalaya
  • techzilo

After installation you can add all of your Instant Messenger accounts and chat with all of your friends from one account. You can also add all of your email accounts and keep an eye out for new mail. On top of that you can also add you Facebook and MySpace accounts and keep another eye out for messages and news from those services! It’s great! Give it a try and let me know what you think! You should also let them know what you think if you get a chance. Tell all your friends!

UPDATE:
The invitation codes are no longer needed! Digsby is now open to the general public, so just go to digsby.com and download this awesome application for free!
