Black Friday

Mental Note: US Based Businesses go loco on Black Fridays. "Falls on the Friday after the fourth Thursday in November". Insane prices on hosting, domain names, products, etc. I should have waited to renew/buy stuff :(
Mark your calendars Nov 25, 2011 (Nov26 Manila).

Verify my ... Foot

I'm finding it irksome that my online purchases paid via paypal requires me to send an image of my passport.

It's even done after they've already received the amount. WTH?!

Hazard Pay

Been working on a Sharepoint MOSS site recently.
It's hands down the slowest, crappiest and most stressful CMS I've tried.

It should have a hefty hazard pay included in the deal :(

Cocoa Match

Today I discovered the difference between:
  1. 44c/gram Ricoa breakfast cocoa and
  2. 10c/gram Allan M repacked cocoa.
the latter isn't "instant" hot drink friendly :P

Maundy Flower Power

For years now, I've been meaning to go to UP Diliman and take pictures of the summer Sunflowers.
Somehow I end up being too busy or forgetting to go, until its already too late :( But this year, thanks to a lot of lucky coincidences converging, I was finally able to.

I met my cousin Kat there and we ended up doing a full photowalk. We had fun and I think I lost a couple of pounds in the process too :D

Album can be found here.

15 years ago today

I stood among friends, went up the stage and received a piece of paper.

Thus ended some of the best times of my life.

Happy 15 years, Pisay Class of 1996!

Pancit and Lumpia

Yup, I'm still playing Cafe World. They just added a new Filipino recipe "Pancit and Lumpia". Not usually bunched together, but a staple for fiestas and traditional parties.

Power Thirst?

In my previous post, I wrote about my UPS dying on me and having to buy a discounted one.

This time, thanks to my sister's faulty car battery, I was able to revive my Emerson UPS :D
So far it can power a 130Watt CRT for 30mins. Not too impressive, but a few charge-drain cycles might improve the capacity :D

Maybe I'll call it IPS, for Intimidating Power Supply :P
