New iTunes apps updates

Here’s the new iTunes apps updates page screen. Nicer, but it’s harder to download updates if you have multiple accounts active. It will prompt you to enter your account’s password according to the sequence of the apps that appear in that list.

Install CakePHP on ServerFreak


To get CakePHP to work with ServerFreak or any other hosting (e.g. IPSERVERONE, 1&1, Godaddy) that serves from a user directory that already uses mod_rewrite, all you have to do is add RewriteBase statements to the .htaccess files that CakePHP uses:

  • /.htaccess
  • /app/.htaccess
  • /app/webroot/.htaccess

Here’s how they should look like after modification.


<ifmodule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^$ app/webroot/ [L]
RewriteRule (.*) app/webroot/$1 [L]


<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^$ /webroot/ [L]
RewriteRule (.*) /webroot/$1 [L]


<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?url=$1 [QSA,L]

Once you have completed all the steps above, you should have a working CakePHP installation!

Everywhere I turn, every website I visit, almost everyone’s talking about the movie. I guess I’m the only soul in Malaysia who haven’t watched the movie.

Instead of being sad about it, I searched for the sound that Transformers make when they transform. Here’s the link for the sound if you’re interested. At least I’m cool that way.

If it’s not the Transformers movie, it’s the iPhone. Life’s good.
