AFTER months of keeping under wraps the inevitable, Intel Corp. has finally announced it will close its Philippine plant—with its 1,800 employees expected to be formally notified within two weeks that they will lose their jobs. The plant in Cavite is expected to be fully shuttered by April, sources said.
When I worked as a sales/technical support, Intel processor from socket 478 to 775 was the most saleable processor ever. Sad to hear that Intel Corp. will be closed by April this year. I had chatted a filipina blogger before informed me that Intel Corp. in Cavite will be closed and it will be transferred somewhere in Malaysia. She buzzed me with her message if I am connected to Intel Corp. because of my blog name as "intel828c". Actually, intel82c was derived from my favorite Intel chipset and my birthday 828. Nahh! it's only my blog name get connected and not my profession. hehehe Then, she said to me that her husband is presently working at Intel Corp. in Sta. Clara, California as IT Specialist. Awesome job! Both of them with their family are living in Arizona, USA.

I have not yet meet my uncle for now since I am much busy playing online chess with my cousin. hehehe. I defeated her twice because she was not quite serious at that time. Actually, she is the best player in Vegas and countlessly defeated the chess grand master in their school. Congrats Febby.

Today is my day because I have won 6 times and defeated 2 times against with my 3 opponents in 8 different games. A total of 8 games all and all. Ashiqueash and I played a 5 minute bout. I thought I will be defeated on this game since I only have 3 officials left (a horse, queen and king) while my opponent have 4 officials left (2 rooks, queen and king). I said to my self that this game will be over against with my opponent "Ashiqueash". He was so tough and good in all aspects. The defensive and offensive moves was quite impressive. He had 2 minutes and 3 seconds left to finish the game while im terribly running out of time. Maybe, he was too confident to defeat me because I only have 3 seconds left but still manage to defeat him with my horse and queen in two more moves in 3 seconds left. The best move is the presence of mind. I defeated and won the game by checkmating him in 6 milliseconds time remaining.

I would like to share you about the gadgets I have for 3 years now, my Apple iPODs shuffle. I got these two iPODs for free when I worked as a sales/technical support. These iPODs were given to me by my supplier as promotional gifts. Won't you believe me? I got these for free because I sold laptops, desktops, licensed software and thumb drives to one of my regular clients. My iPODs now are still working with boombastic and impressive sounds. I gave the other iPOD to my luckiest and closest friend of mine.

It was my first time to play chess online with my opponent named murdock1981. He was from Laguna, Philippines. He is my new friend in chesscube online gaming. The game was not quite good because It was a little bit confusing. Hahaha. Im not quite familiar with the color of the board likewise with the pieces. Anyway, better luck next time. To make it short. Im a loser baby!

Let us start our day with a new life, a new beginning, a new day, a new hope and a new year to all. New Year’s Day, first day of the year, January 1 in the Gregorian calendar. In the Middle Ages most European countries used the Julian calendar and observed New Year's Day on March 25, called Annunciation Day and celebrated as the occasion on which it was revealed to Mary that she would give birth to the Son of God. With the introduction of the Gregorian calendar in 1582, Roman Catholic countries began to celebrate New Year's Day on January 1. Scotland accepted the Gregorian calendar in 1600; Germany, Denmark, and Sweden about 1700; and England in 1752. Traditionally the day has been observed as a religious feast, but in modern times the arrival of the New Year has also become an occasion for spirited celebration and the making of personal resolutions. The Jewish New Year is called Rosh Hashanah, or the Feast of Trumpets, and is prescribed by the Old Testament as a holy Sabbath. It is celebrated (generally in September) on the first and second days of Tishri. The Chinese celebrate New Year’s Day sometime between January 21 and February 19 of the Gregorian calendar. It is their most important holiday.
