The Ultimate Speed Challenge

This was happened on September 26, 2008. Thanks God its Friday! We're roaming around the mall at 5 in the afternoon and eyeing everywhere with the tempting goods inside. Im not planning to buy anything for myself then suddenly it happens to pop-up in my mind about the helmet. Sad to say, my helmet was stolen two weeks had passed. I bought again a new one with the same brand. Im so glad because the helmet I bought was perfectly the same of the stolen one. For the moment, the sales representative explained to me about the promotion they have. The Black and Decker, Ultimate Speed Challenge. If you have purchase a product worth PhP 500 at the Handy Man, you will be playing their game. The fastest person being recorded on that day had a best time of 36.97 seconds driving the eight (8) screws using Black and Decker tool. Its my turn, warming up my hands and my mind on how to drive the tool and screws. As I started nailing the first screw I felt it so easy and confident. I nailed all the eight screws at 35.15 seconds and beat the record holder on that day. I felt so happy because Im the new record holder for the week. I've had won PhP 1,000 of gift certificate from Robinson.
The manager told me that I am qualified for the next game. The final challenge will be on October 11, 2008. How I wish I could join the contest and win bigger prizes of GC. I informed them that I'll be flying for Davao tomorrow and I can't join the final challenge. In spite of everyhing, Im very thankful because I have a new helmet plus a gift certificate of PhP 1,000.

Intel Atom Exhibit

The Intel® Atom™ processor is Intel's smallest processor, built with the world's smallest transistors and manufactured on Intel's industry-leading 45nm Hi-k Metal Gate technology. The Intel Atom processor was purpose-built for simple, affordable, netbooks and nettops.
Intel Atom processor-based netbooks and nettops offer both an easy-to-use mobile device with simple interfaces and targeted performance for a good online experience. They are rugged and compact in design, and offer the freedom and flexibility of wireless connectivity.
Great for Internet, these devices are an affordable option for education, photo and video viewing, social networking, voice over IP, e-mail, messaging, browsing, and numerous other Internet activities and basic applications.
Again, I was here to watch the exhibit in an instant. I did not notice that Intel Atom was having an exhibit at MOA. Intel is one of my favorite company and processor. You may notice my blog named Intel828c. This name of mine derived from my favorite chipset Intel series, the 828 is my day and C is my name. These were the processors I assembled (the Intel Pentium 4 socket 478 and socket 775 Dual Core) together with the computer peripherals.

Acer Philippines

The Service Center of Acer Philippines is located in 1651 Paz M. Guanzon St., Paco, Manila. Or you can give a ring to their friendly customer service at +63.2.815.3388. By the way, I was there to visit the service center to buy a new battery. According to the technical support of Acer, you may remove the battery of your laptop if it is fully charge. Plug the adaptor of your laptop and allow the current to flow from the adaptor to produce a direct current. Overcharging the battery of your laptop may cause the battery to protrude and wreck the batt. Note: Shut down the laptop first before removing the battery.

The scandal began with complaints over milk powder by Sanlu Group Co. -- one of China's best-known and most respected brands. But it quickly became a much larger problem as government tests found that one-fifth of the companies producing baby milk powder had melamine in their products.
Melamine is a toxic industrial chemical that can cause kidney stones and lead to kidney failure. It has no nutritional value but is high in nitrogen, making products with it appear higher in protein. Suppliers trying to cut costs are believed to have added it to watered-down milk to cover up the resulting protein deficiency.
I got jolted about the milky thing and I decided not to buy, eat and drink when it comes to China products. When I was young I love to eat white rabbit especially the "inside" wrapper that melts in your tongue. If that scandal was not testified by the press, I would still consider eating that candy. It was reported earlier that even White Rabbit candy has a melamine that could trigger your kidney to fail.

The Alaskan Malamute

Alaskan Malamute, hardy breed of Arctic working dog, which is extensively used in the Arctic for hauling sledges (large transport sleds).
The Alaskan Malamute was originally bred by an Alaskan tribe known as Mahlemuts or Malemuit. The dog is the oldest known native Alaskan breed. Some are also bred in the United States, where they serve as pets and show dogs. The breed is large with a compact and powerful body and unusual powers of endurance. The male is 61 to 66 cm (24 to 26 in) high at the shoulder and weighs 36 to 43 kg (80 to 95 lb); the female is 56 to 61 cm (22 to 24 in) high and weighs 32 to 38 kg (70 to 85 lb). The animal has a thick, coarse outer coat and a woolly undercoat and is gray or black and white in color. It has a broad, moderately rounded skull; a large muzzle; dark, almond-shaped eyes; medium-sized ears, the upper halves of which are triangular; a deep chest; powerful legs; and a bushy tail carried high.
I met Max (Alaskan Malamute) outside MOA, he is well trained and friendly dog. Everybody loves Max especially when it comes to picture taking. There were some got afraid to Max. Just dont be because Max is an intelligent dog. He will bite you a kilo of meat if his master will tell Max to bite you. hehehe. He knows how to hide himself if someone would like to take a picture, some kind of snubbish dog. If Max could speak he would surely say, "Get off me you ass-kal, we're different". lolz

DELL on Windows Vista

I had a hard time of eliminating the problems of this laptop since im just starting out to windows Vista. Dell has its own way on how to troubleshoot and configure the system. This was my first time to tap Dell and the Vista system. Honestly, I found it so hard. I formatted and reinstalled the system twice. My first installation ran smoothly and some programs were working properly except to the DVD player. I can hardly solved the problem on DVD. I installed all the drivers and utilities but the problem was still the same. I remembered what my cousin told me about Dell that inculcated me from her ideas about it. She said, Dell sucks!! I almost to quit the problem. As I said to myself, "there's no harm in trying". So I tried for the second time around until I resolved the problem. What I did, read the manual and followed the instructions. All programs were well configured likewise the internet connection and partitions of two drives. I like this laptop of my sister but I have a strong distaste of Windows Vista for now. Vista Sucks!!

reminisced 911 and Rody's Project

A fireball erupts from the south tower of the World Trade Center in New York City after a hijacked passenger jet crashed into it on September 11, 2001. Another hijacked jet had crashed into the north tower about 15 minutes earlier. Both of the 110-story skyscrapers soon collapsed completely. Hijackers crashed a third plane into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and a fourth hijacked plane crashed in Pennsylvania. The terrorist attacks, which killed about 3,000 people, were the deadliest in United States history.On the other hand, Davao City is one of only three areas in world, after US and Canada, to have the Integrated Emergency Response System 911, a fully integrated, computerized response system linking the people of Davao City to the emergency resources of the government. Davao City received an award for its Project 911 from the League of Cities in the Philippines in 2003, as one of the Top 25 Best Practices in the Philippines.

Changing The Hair Color


Changing the hair color by Photoshop CS. Set the foreground to white and the background to black. Duplicate the layer. Then, click Image > Adjust > Hue/Saturation. After that, click "Colorize" and adjust or drag the pointer to the desired color you like . I chose: Hue=16, Saturation=61 and Lightness=7. After changing the color, click Layer > Add Layer Mask > Hide All. Next, click Brush Tool. Set opacity to 50% then start changing the hair color by dragging the "brush tool" on the top of the hair. Got it or confused! Hmmm. Got confused too but have patience. Hope you've learned from my little knowledge.

My First Time In SF, Cal., USA

I felt so happy that day when I landed the over looking place background of Golden Gate Bridge in SF, Cal.. My day was brilliant and full of joy and excitement. I can't figure it out the feelings I had on that day. I missed everyone and I wanted them to be with me on that wonderful place. I saw nothing except myself and my photographer. The place was so cool likewise the ambiance. Im so excited then and I want to leap eagerly to travel to Orlando, FL to visit my sister and her hubby, likewise my relatives in Vegas. Huhh! After seconds of reminiscing, my mind got interrupted. I was aroused from daze of that damn dog of ours. Sheyyt! I was just dreaming. I thought I was there. What I did after, I rubbed my eyes and looked on the four corners. I saw nothing sparkling spots of bridge except the life size poster of Brad Pitt este Angelina Jolie. Bwahahaha Bruha! (witch!)
Because of that dreamt I had, I was able to enhanced the portrait of myself and the Golden Gate Bridge. I put them together to become tangible to the eyes of the beholder. hehehe. What a dream!

There are some are 18 below. is rank as the number 38 most visited site online in terms of traffic by Friendster is a leading global social network emphasizing genuine friendships and the discovery of new people. Yes, its true. You're out if you dont have friendster account. I think everyone of us especially the teens have friendster accounts. Some have multiple accounts and it can be viewed as public or private. There are some accounts can be viewed only if you have authorization from the owner. Hmm! Once you are authorize to open it, you will see nude pics. Some accounts can be seen perfectly with your naked eyes for free of pornographic pictures. If you are below 18 years old, please don't click. Here are some clickable accounts where you can see nude pictures. (1. Takisa Rarat, 2. Profile X, 3. Bea 4. Cristina ). Im not advertising and guiding youngsters to view nude pics but to warn and guide them off limits. Our youngters are our future, we should guide them well and inculcate the good things in to their minds.

Nirvana - Territorial Pissing

In 1991 a British company called Geffen bought their contract. Two and a half years later their 1st CD was released they also released Nevermind. Smells like teen spirit was the most popular song by Nirvana, Nevermind went on to sell 10 million copies and made 550 million American dollars. These meaning that Nirvana were overnight millionaires. Off the record, Im one of the avid fans of Nirvana. During those days we sometimes had a get-together party "inuman" - Nirvana will never be out from our tracks. We called ourselves the "Headbangers". toink!! but we never put ourselves into drugs. The music itself kept our relationship alive. I missed those days we had.

Territorial Pissing
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another Right now

Happy Foot Of The Day!

Trip lang, wlay mabuhat og wlay mahuna-hunaan. hehehe. This was the foot of my friend during our trip to Hong Kong. Won't you believed? hehehe. That's true. Even he's wearing slippers going to HK but he looked like what he was there. Confused? To give you an idea who he was on this pic, I will give you a hint. He looks like the famous actor in Hollywood. The toughest guy in Asia and the most prominent person in the Philippines. Who he was? Hmmm. He was the Shrek in our group tour. That's not a joke but he loves to be called a Shrek. I don't have an idea where and how he is now. If you find or see a foot like this, feel free to contact me with this email.

Pacquiao: Politics or Boxing! Let Me Know It From You.

Best viewed if image is click to enlarge
Manny is one of the greatest boxers of his or any generation, he is the reigning WBC International Super Featherweight Champion. Prior to capturing the title, “Pacman” was the WBC Flyweight Champion from 1998 to 1999, the IBF Super Bantamweight Champion from 2001 to 2004 and the People's Featherweight Champion from 2003 to 2005. Pacquiao’s enviable career record of 45 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws has also been highlighted with 35 knockout victories. Pacquiao fighting De La Hoya on December 06, 2008 at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, NV would put plenty of asses in the seats and make everyone involved a great deal of money, which is why you shouldn't be surprised this year to see the Filipino taking on the big boys.
About politics. Pacman is a noble guy. He wants to help the Filipino people and to unite each and everyone, the pros and the antis. The question is, How will Pacman be doing in congress if he wins this 2010 election? What Pacman does not know is that he is being lured by politicians.
Majority will say that he must not enter into politics and better focus on his boxing career. There are plenty of things on how to help people. We know he is rich. He can help if he wanted to but not getting involve to politics. Politics is a big mess for him because he doesn't have enough experience. Pacquiao is one of the most famous persons in the Philippines and many politicians will lure him. Maybe Pacman made a promise to some of his friends in politics, that is one factor that he can't say no to them but to ruN, rUN, RUN!!

Rendering Using Lens Flare

This is just a sample creation using Photoshop CS. Im not quite good of this stuff but im learning thru other's shared knowledge online. Sorry, I don't have a software/hardware for you to demo of what I made. I'll just write and its up to you to follow if you have patience. First, you have to open and set your desired width and length. 800x600 was the size I chose. The background was set to black. Then, I add a new layer which was also black. I added again a layer for the orange ball. I picked a tool which was the "ellipse tool" and form it into circle. Next, right click the "orange" layer and select blending option. Then find the layer style for the "gradient overlay" for you to select the position and desire angle. In the "gradient overlay", choose the "radial" and set it to 90 degrees. Its for you to choose your desired angle.
The second one is how to make the "Nagpractice pa intawon", english meaning "im still practicing". lolz. Well, click the "Horizontal type tool" and type your name or whatever you like to type. Then, set what color you like or by following the image, set the color to white since the background was black. To change the color simply click the "foreground color" and choose the color you like. Next, add another layer and click the "elliptical marquee tool" and put it over at the font you type. Then fill the ellipse with the color black by picking the "paint bucket tool" and set the "opacity" to 50 percent. Next, right click the name like "Nagpractice pa intawon" and duplicate the layer. If you made it, go to "Edit" at the right uppermost and find the "transform path" and click the "flip canvass vertical" and pull down the font by dragging it downward. Next, right click the "duplicate layer" Nagpractice pa intawon" and go to "gradient overlay" and change the inverted font by putting the marker/cursor above the font. Try to drag it downward or upward and you'll see the difference. Next is how to have a "lens flare". Go to "Filter" at the right uppermost, "Render" then "Lens Flare". Try to explore by experimenting the lens flare. Huhh!! Confused! Me too. lolz. I hope you've learned some from me. :-)

One IP address with two different locations?

IP Addresses:
In order for systems to locate each other in a distributed environment, nodes are given explicit addresses that uniquely identify the particular network the system is on and uniquely identify the system to that particular network. When these two identifiers are combined, the result is a globally-unique address.

This afternoon, I've visited Tagum City, checked my email and likewise my blog account. My blog is embeded with an IP locator where viewers of my homepage will identify their location. Geovisite identified my IP as located somewhere in Tagum. Geovisite is a site that traces IP address and location of the user. Since I was in Tagum that day, im pretty sure that my IP location will be in Tagum too but I was confused because the location of my IP was in Baguio City. I don't know why the IP location was change from Tagum to Baguio. Again, I Google IP tracer and I found different sites for IP's. I've chose this site to trace the IP and this was the result.

The result of the above image was the IP address and location, located in Cebu where I traced using the above URL. Huhh! So confusing, (makalilibog). lolz. I opened another account to trace again that IP address using another site. I used my Statcounter similar to Geovisite. Statcounter will do the same as what Geovisite does, it can trace IP, location and link referrals. In addition to that it can identify what OS and browser you are using. Here is the result of the IP, located in Benguet somewhere or near Baguio City.
Please click to enlarge image.
Note: I did not edit the IP address. Does anyone can explain why the IP adress change to different locations? If this is so, some sites are not reliable for tracing an IP add. It could be a dummy or trick.
