“The price for being the best is always having to be the best”
Django admin works! I would write more but this input method is tedious.
I came across a website that provided an online Speed Reading Test. Most people I know generally know me to be a fast reader so I decided to take the test.
My results: 472 words per minute screen reading, at 82% comprehension, which the website says classifies me as a “good reader”. Apparently the best readers can read at 700wpm at 85% comprehension, sounds tough =/
Try the quiz and post your results here.
Previously I hosted two separate WordPress blogs on roytang.net, the old one I’ve had since forever, and a separate one that discussed only magic related articles. It was a bit bothersome to have two WordPress installs though. Now that I’ve migrated to a Django backend, I decided to merge the blogs back into one.
The blog now has the following sections/categories:
- Magic the Gathering – for posts related to MTG
- Software Development – for posts related to Software Development (hopefully I can write more about this topic)
- Gaming – originally I didn’t have this category, but looking at previous contents of the blog and my delicious links, this is one of the things I write about the most, so I made it a separate category
- Weblog – everything else I can think of
Each category has a separate RSS feed you can subscribe to – so that if you’re only interested in MTG posts you can subscribe to the MTG category feed, etc. There’s also a master feed that syndicates all the posts in all categories, available at the top of the page.
Well, it’s a bit early. But if you’re reading this then I’ve successfully migrated the roytang.net website to a new host. See you after the jump!
Actually, I’m writing this post to test comments on the blog, which someone has reported to be currently borken. See ya in the comments.
After trying out usernamecheck.com, I decided to try claiming my username “roytang” at various websites. Here’s a list of various websites where I have this username.
http://friendfeed.com/roytang– This one actually seems useful.
http://twitter.com/roytang– Okay, I admit it. I’ve actually had this for a few weeks now.
http://pownce.com/roytang/– I’m not yet too clear on what it’s used for.
http://roytang.posterous.com/– would be useful if I didn’t already have a blog
http://roytang.livejournal.com/– now I can be emo!
http://roytang.pbwiki.com/– I created this a long time ago. Recently I had to use pbwiki again so I revived the account.
http://www.last.fm/user/roytang– music I listen to.
http://roytang.wordpress.com/– As mentioned, I only got this account so I could activate Akismet
There’s probably more. Sometimes when I see a random website I try out my username to see if I’ve registered before and this is successful more often than I expect.
Some “roytang”s on the web that are not me:
http://roytang.blogspot.com – obviously not me
http://www.myspace.com/roytang – some guy from Singapore
I was going through some old files today, I found this screenshot of my desktop from 2004:
(Click for larger image)
Actually, I still like that wallpaper. It’s well-drawn. It’s from
RPGamer Theme Central.
Items I had in the quick-launch toolbar:
- mIRC (for downloading comics)
- IE again (?!)
- I believe this is EditPad, a notepad replacement
- Chami.com HTML-Kit
- Windows Media Player
- DivX Player
- No idea
- Shortcut to some folder
- Kazaa (pirate!)
- No idea
- 2xExplorer (Windows explorer alternative)
- Crimson Editor (so far there are at least 3 different text editors)
- Show Desktop
- Outlook (I never used this)
- No idea
- Thunderbird again…apparently I never cleaned up this taskbar.
- Visualboy Advance
- Quicktime (3 different media players too!)
- Warcraft III
- Yahoo Messenger
- No idea
For reference, here’s today’s desktop, same wallpaper:

I added an iGoogle Gadget that allows me to post from iGoogle. Neat huh?
But I’m not sure if it’s okay to trust the gadget with my blog account details…
