Early Early Bird

Went to the cemetery today to pay my respects to my Lolo. Went a few days ahead because we wanted to steer clear of the hordes of people that would be going on the 1st of November.

Beanbook

My notebook underwent another re-format. Currently testing the system for anymore signs of instability. Hmmm. I really hope everything is ok already...

New Theme|Armin van Buuren [Nokia Series 60SE]

Just finished a theme for Nokia S60SE [N6600/N7610/N6630 etc].
--
It's actually a theme request for an Armin van Buuren [I think he's ranked number 3 in the world] inspired theme.

sick bean

Still fighting off this cough and cold that started on Saturday. Must be the weird weather [hot in the am and raining in the pm]. Feel kinda weak and have a numbing headache hope I feel better tomorrow... so I can get more work done.

My Birthday Weekend

Well had a laid back weekend for my birthday. Actually a refreshing change of pace from todo gimmicks.

On Friday: We stayed at Penang Hill
On Saturday: We watched Deuce Bigalow 2, and stayed in AA's [liked '40 Year Old Virgin' more than DB2]
On Sunday: Walked around in Podium and Greenhills and had dinner at Kohikan [Hoy Kim at Cams next time tig isa ng 'Symphony'... kayang kaya naman e!]

Birthday Thoughts...

Hmmm okay today I'm 26 years old na! Hmmm so far the day seems to be ok. Lot's of greets came in over the night [some numbers my PPC Phone didn't recognize: frustrating!] a lot more greets this am. Been busy replying to email and sms greets. Of course I had 'misua' for breakfast with matching 1 piece hard boiled egg [this meal is for luck] anyway I hope it comes soon [been having shit for luck at work lately]. Anyway was also thinking when and where I'd be holding my Birthday bash. Usually me and Mabs do it together since our birthdays are close [10/17 is Mabs' Birthday]... he's still looking for a venue. Anyway would like to thank everyone who greeted me today [in no particular order]:

PocketBlogger v1.1

Thanks to BTT's K-JAM Blog I found this blogging tool. Pretty straight forward UI. Although the application needs more work as the POST box [where you write your post] is partially hidden by the SIP. It makes posting harder. I think Diarist has posting patted down. Pocket Blogger needs a bit more work.

Underground Economy is Boomin'

Just got back from renewing my Driver's License. The underground economy at the LTO [Land Transportation Office] is definitely booming. Suffice to say it took me around 2 hours to get my ID card. Last year I did it the 'right' way and it took me 4 hours. So I guess even if I did feed the hungry maws of corruption at least I saved some time. This is my 4th time I went to the LTO to get a license [or renew it] and well my weight is still the same as in '97 [I was 75kg then] the funny thing is well the weight scale had my weight at 58kg, the medical examiner put 60kg on my documents, I guess the encoder doesn't bother reading the damned thing anyway. Of course with my vision [my grade is 900(left) and 1000 (right)]the 'doctor' put in FIT TO DRIVE after I barely read the letter rows. The drug test consisted of me peeing in the plastic cup [unsealed mind you] and getting the results as I gave them the specimen. I guess paying for all these things will put some…

Review|Shivers (2005)

Category: Music
Genre: Dance & DJ
Artist: Armin van Buuren
--
Armin van Buuren ranked #3 in the Top 100 DJ rankings. With his second album he shows us why he's among the best DJs in the world. van Buuren is a definite force in Trance music. I particularly like Wall of Sound, Shivers, Who is Watching, Bounce Back, Control Freak, and Serenity

Review|Defected: Bob Sinclar In The House[UK](2005)

Category: Music
Genre: Dance & DJ
Artist: Various Artists [mixed by Bob Sinclar]

Bob Sinclar [Sinclair] (aka Chris LeFriant) the Frenchman is out with his 3 Disc Mix CD. This compilation is filled with old and new House tracks. It travels the spectrum from Funky/Disco House, to Jazz Infused and to Tribal and Latin House.

LeFriant has been quoted as saying: "You must make dance ze people." with this release he most certainly will. So far my fav tracks are: Jealousy, Not Too Shabby, The Beat Goes On, Summer Moon, Love Generation.

Some Sanity

Ok finally been able to setup my notebook again [promise di na ko mag kegaw sa registry]! Now I've to hunker down and get back to important work lot's of reports to finish up. Finished listening to my Star Wars Sith Lords Audio Book KEWL! Also was able to borrow some new novels from Ven [the titles escapes me right now]. Oh well back to work!

Tech Troubles Continue...

Hahaha my notebook crashed again over the weekend and had to be reformatted again!!! Bwahahaha KE GAW kasi... The problem started when I began fiddling with some values in the registry haha oh well I guess I won't be doing that again hahaha! I'd like to thank Chi for being patient and rebuilding my notebook. :)

What are you listening to???

Lately I've been looking for songs to add to my ACP re-connect playlist. It should be a fusion of Trance, Dance, and House. Currently I have 50 tracks on my playlist. I would list them here but I am too lazy to type it all down. Windows Media Player doesn't seem to have a tool/utility to export the tracks [i.e. titles and artists] of playlists generated on it. Maybe it's time to look for a work around for this. Here's a screenie of my PocketPC playing the first track on my playlist. I think this is a fitting first track for my playlist [hey if Team Kandi used it for their first song in DiscoHeaven '05 I might as well follow their lead right?], I also hear that this track had a massive reception in Ibiza this year. I'm not really suprised this uplifting tune will surely get any party started IMO.

Bob Sinclair ft. Gary Pine - Love Generation

Stress

This week is shaping up to be a pretty stressfull week. Over the weekend my notebook died on me and now that I have finally been able to setup my new notebook... I thought I could take a break and relax awhile but alas I've been flooded with work.
--
Game 2 for the UAAP Men's Basketball Finals will be held later at Araneta [4pm].
Wasn't able to get tickets so I'll be relying on SMS reports [since I can't watch TV here at the office]. I really hope La Salle extends the series. Animo La Salle.

Back to work for now...

Playing with Object Dock

--
Been playing around with Stardock's ObjectDock [Freeware version]
--
It places a dock with shortcuts on your desktop! Really cool [it gives it sort of a mac feel]. It is also very customizable: you can choose which application shortcuts to place on the dock and you can also change the icons.

My Shobes' Birthday Dinner at Alex the III [10/02/05]:

The Lemon

Over the weekend my notebook went dead on me! Yep you read it right after 2 weeks the damned thing went crazy and it would not boot up! At first we thought it was a driver issue with XPSP2 and the ATI X600 card but when we took it to the shop even they couldn't figure it out! The re-seller told Chi that this was the First LEMON [n.b. defective units are usually refered to as Lemons] for this type/config of notebook... Wahhhh!!! Anyway took it to the shop yesterday morning and was supposed to have it replaced. The shop didn't have stocks of the exact same notebook and I was offered a low-end replacement [DL71] while they waited for the stocks [3 to 4 days] or I could get a brand new notebook with a different brand [MSI] and just add some cash. At first I was really pissed off I mean I had the damned notebook for like 2 weeks pa lang. I guess that's what you get when you buy whitebox notebooks :( My options were 2 NEO Q-Notes [whitebox also] and a MSI notebook... Anyway afte…

Dinner with Blockmates

Had dinner and a few drinks with our blockmates over at Maestro it was nice seeing everyone again. Pity a lot of people couldn't go. I think by far though this has had the most attendance hahaha. I guess people are really busy... So as promised here are the pics that I took. By the way to those who brought cameras you might want to upload the pics as well... Wala kami sa mga kuha ko e!!! :o)
