What does fortune means for me

The word “fortune” was prominent in my recent conversations. The people I met in this new stage of life do not ponder over the many assignment deadlines and exams. Instead, these people stress the limited hours of life and speak ideas of how to maximize living. Naturally, the biggest motivation in life will be to attain as much fortune as we can.

Going deeper into unchartered territory

Prior to working, I had been playing with PHP, HTML/CSS, MySQL intensively. Although many people had claimed that building web applications is easy, but it is very challenging to create web applications which brings about great user experience. There are many considerations to make, including the back end processing side of things and the aesthetics side of things. However, I am always in the game because of the many rich resources made possible by fellow players, especially people from Smashing Magazine.

Implementing the Singleton Pattern in Visual Basic.Net

Object creation can be expensive in terms of processing time and memory utilization. While there are cases where multiple object instances are inevitable to getting things done, there are certainly cases where only a single instance of object is sufficient. For example, if your program is only going to access a single database instance, it suffice to dedicate a single object that manages database connection(s) to your database server. Other examples are objects used for logging messages, objects used for loading/saving configuration details, objects used for managing threads and objects used for managing access to shared hardware devices such as the printer.
