DeviantArt "Server Not Found" Error

Is anyone else having trouble logging onto deviantart.com? I've been trying to get into the site for a few days now, but kept getting this "server not found" message. Neither firefox nor Explorer is able to access deviantART. I'm in BC, Canada and I've read over the internet that other people outside the U.S. was also having this problem. I am not sure, but is everyone in the U.S. able to access the site? I sent them a message on twitter @deviantART and waiting for their response.

I hope it will get fixed soon as I have a lot of messages to respond.

World of Warcraft Official Magazine

I finally received my first subscription issue of the World of Warcraft Magazine in the mail. I was excited to open it to see the content. The magazine cover was glossy and high quality. I missed issue #1 which features the Lich King. Anyways, it's a great magazine with great artwork, no ads, and good articles with some gaming tips.













Magazine publisher, Future, has partnered with Blizzard Entertainment to create a quarterly magazine. The very first issue was released in fall/winter of 2009. It's only available through subscription, so it's not available in newsstands. The magazine is available in English, German, French, and Spanish editions.

16 Items They Only Sell At Chinese Walmart



In China, they sell weird stuff at Walmart. I was reading the article from http://www.buzzfeed.com. They've listed 16 products with pictures that the Walmart in China actually sell: from crocodiles, assorted dried reptiles, to anti-bacterial bikini underwear... It's a too weird!

Still Life Pencil Drawings

I was digging through my old sketch books that I've kept since I was in my highschool years. I haven't posted these before and wanted to share them. I also still have my old pencil set that I've neglected over the years. Ever since I discovered Photoshop and digital art, I've never webt back to traditional art. I do miss my pencil sketching.



Here are a few of my many pencil artwork pieces.

7 things to stop doing now on Facebook

Using a weak password

Avoid simple names or words you can find in a dictionary, even with numbers tacked on the end. Instead, mix upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols. A password should have at least eight characters. One good technique is to insert numbers or symbols in the middle of a word, such as this variant on the word "houses": hO27usEs!

Leaving your full birth date in your profile

It's an ideal target for identity thieves, who could use it to obtain more information about you and potentially gain access to your bank or credit card account. If you've already entered a birth date, go to your profile page and click on the Info tab, then on Edit Information. Under the Basic Information section, choose to show only the month and day or no birthday at all.

Overlooking useful privacy controls

For almost everything in your Facebook profile, you can limit access to only your friends, friends of friends, or yourself. Restrict access to photos, birth date, religious views, and family information, among other things. You can give only certain people or groups access to items such as photos, or block particular people from seeing them. Consider leaving out contact info, such as phone number and address, since you probably don't want anyone to have access to that information anyway.

Posting your child's name in a caption

Don't use a child's name in photo tags or captions. If someone else does, delete it by clicking on Remove Tag. If your child isn't on Facebook and someone includes his or her name in a caption, ask that person to remove the name.

Mentioning that you'll be away from home

That's like putting a "no one's home" sign on your door. Wait until you get home to tell everyone how awesome your vacation was and be vague about the date of any trip.

Letting search engines find you

To help prevent strangers from accessing your page, go to the Search section of Facebook's privacy controls and select Only Friends for Facebook search results. Be sure the box for public search results isn't checked.

Permitting youngsters to use Facebook unsupervised

Facebook limits its members to ages 13 and over, but children younger than that do use it. If you have a young child or teenager on Facebook, the best way to provide oversight is to become one of their online friends. Use your e-mail address as the contact for their account so that you receive their notifications and monitor their activities. "What they think is nothing can actually be pretty serious," says Charles Pavelites, a supervisory special agent at the Internet Crime Complaint Center. For example, a child who posts the comment "Mom will be home soon, I need to do the dishes" every day at the same time is revealing too much about the parents' regular comings and goings.

Vancouver Zoo

It was the Victoria Day long weekend and we decided to go for a visit to the Zoo. We had a 2 for 1 Entertainment book coupon and took advantage of that. It was our little Brandon's first visit to the zoo. Everything was so interested. Too bad we didn't see elephants, and some of the animals were hiding/sleeping inside the hut. I think the most interesting animal that I saw was the white peacock.

- Adult (16 yrs. - 64 yrs.): $20.00 per person
- Child (4 yrs. - 15 yrs.): $15.00 per person

- Senior (65 + yrs.): $15.00 per person
- Family (2 adults, 2 children): $65.00 per family
- Train Reservations: $5.00 per person
