JukeFly: Stream those music

I often travel back and forth almost every week. The dilemma  is that sometimes I want to listen to certain song, just to find out that I don’t have it in my iPod. Yet, I know I have that song somewhere in my other computer at my other house. My computer always on 24/7, so I don’t mind if there is a service that can allows me to stream my music online.

Worry no more. If you got similar dilemma as I am, then you need JukeFly. Its a free service, created by 2 guys from San Jose, California. What you need to do is register, install a very (extremely) small server to your always on computer. Login, and add song to be stream. That’s it!

Let say you are away from home and want to listen to your song. Just login to http://www.jukefly.com, then you’ll see all your song there, ready to be play. No installation or whatsoever. I’ve been using it for a while now, and so far don’t have any problem, lag, or whatsoever.

The Nerd Handbook on How to Hack Geeks

whc13

I just found out an interesting post called “The Nerd Handbook”. Nerd world is a mysterious and alien place for normal people. Well, this article explains to nerds’ loved ones how the geek thinks, the importance of the nerd’s “Cave” and our chase for “The High” that comes from solving problems, our finicky attention span and our insatiable appetite for information. If you’re a nerd, print this out and give it to your non-nerd spouse to teach ’em “advanced nerd tweakage.”

Common Sense Management

937836_99606899

Well, this article is not about geek or tech stuff, its about normal dilemma we always face in today’s world. I met an old friend of mine recently on the Internet and we started to talk about work and stuff, that eventually ended up with some interesting topic that I would like to share with you. Common Sense.

The thing about real life is that to be an effective manager, you don’t need a shiny MBA degree, but just some common sense. We might already learn it way back from our childhood, but we just forgot about them.

Arguably the most powerful and effective managers in the world – Bill Gates & Steve Jobs, these men have one thing in common – they owe their management acumen and success not to fancy business degrees from the hallowed portals of Harvard and Yale, but to plain old, not-so-common, common sense.

At the end of our conversation, my friend show me several websites that really lifted my up. To summarize, we need to go back to basic:

  • Self before service is the key here – Manage yourself first
  • Time and tide wait for no man – Manage each moment
  • The human side of resources – Master the art of managing men
  • Make every penny count – Managing money pays
  • Just do it – Managing tasks takes talent
  • Sourcing sources – Manage resources resourcefully
  • They are the reason your business exists – Manage customers confidently
  • Change is inevitable – Manage critical and chaotic crises
  • Aims and aspirations – Manage objectives objectively
