After four (4) dreary months of going home to a dwelling devoid of a computer, I finally purchased a laptop. Its an Acer Aspire 4520-301G12. At Php 39,900 with 0% 12 months installment, free 2gb flash drive and HP photo printer, I think I got a really good deal! Bought it from Silicon Valley at [...]
I was trying to read up on permutations, probability and combinatronics when I came upon this link – Taylor’s Law of Programming Probability. The theoretical possibility of a catastrophic occurrence in your program can be ignored if it’s less likely than the entire installation being wiped out by meteor strike. The important number here seems [...]
The new kernel 18.104.22.168-33.fc7 in Fedora 7 repo has an auto mount bug. Also reported back in 22.214.171.124-27.fc7, USB flash drives won’t automatically mount. Reverted back to 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 and all is well. Also, update autofs package. Earlier version that came with the Fedora DVD shows automount hogging up CPU! On top command, it shows up [...]
The past 5 weeks seemed an eternity. Days seem to go by longer, time seems to go by too slow. So many things have happened! I should be excited by all of this, as I was before this whole thing blew up in my face. But now its all been drummed down, reality has crept [...]
3 weeks ago, I started on another adventure. I ended 1 year and 2 months of vacation and went back to work for my old master. Working in Ateneo was like a wonderful vacation, except that I was getting paid haha. With wide open spaces, fields, trees, flexible working hours, and snack food in the [...]
To be honest with you, I don’t really need a camera phone. I just want a small enough phone for sending and receiving sms, occasional voice calls, calculator, alarm clock, and of course has an intuitive user interface that won’t annoy me. For me, camphones don’t output photos at good enough quality for anything but [...]
Poster presentation last Feb 15-17 for the Philippine American Academy of Science and Engineering (PAASE) Annual PAASE Meeting and Symposium (APAMS) held at Century Park Hotel in Manila. The event was hosted by De La Salle University, with most of the research presented coming from that school. I was disappointed to see almost no posters [...]
I got my Canon ixus camera back. At last! PAid a hefty 5k to the blasted Canon Service Center. I also got a new phone now. Finally got fed up with the almost 4-year old XDA!
Last tuesday, Sisig gigged at Chaquico’s in Makati for Ernie’s Guitar Adrenaline event. It’s been 1.5 years since we last played there. As expected, everyone who was there were either musicians, luthiers, guitar enthusiasts or roadies. I hated the feeling knowing that people are observing you, listening to every note, waiting for you to make [...]
PCTrends replaced my 1.3 year old 6600GT (that conked out), with a 6800GS!!! :p At first I was told that I’d get 7300GT. Thank God they gave me a 6800GS instead! I’ll install The Sims 2 again to see how this baby goes.
