The New Job/s

I'm currently working for a real-estate company which we are investors in.

My official designation is assistant marketing manager, since I would
like to save the starting company some money I am also taking on the
duties of the IT department (which for now are very minor) for said
company. The company can hire a full time IT guy when the need arises
but for now kegaw ko na muna kung ano kaya.

So I registered a domain with godaddy.com and used promo code REV10 to
get a discount on the registration cost.

For email hosting I decided to go with Microsoft's Outlook.com which
is free (for now). I made a few email addresses for the meantime,
limit is 50.

Honestly I would have preferred Google Apps but since it is no longer
a free service I went with outlook. I have a grandfathered-in account
for Google Apps which I had linked to gibi.com.ph unfortunately the
domain registration for that had expired and it is now being squatted
on by some Koreans (according to whois) -- the gibi.com.ph situation
is much much messier and I haven't had the chance to really do reforms
that I want with it. I would like to rectify it when I have extra
time. But right now I am focusing on the new company which is starting
from scratch therefore less problems when changes are enacted.

I have emailed dotph (local domain registrar) and hopefully we can get
control back of gibi.com.ph and I hope they don't charge too much for
it! Medyo taga tong local registrar natin. Monopoly kasi.

As for other social media presence I setup twitter and Facebook which
was fairly easy. Google+ isn't really a priority right now.

For the website I am looking to do it in house (read: on my own) using
squarespace.com's excellent hosting and content management system
which is 8$/mo -- which in my guesstimate would still be cheaper vs
hiring a web developer. Right now I am a few days in with their 2 week
trial.

Now all I need is content. Working with some great people on that too.

Aside from this, I also need to focus on the small gadget business
which I have with my friend. We need new items.

assistant marketing manager / IT / web developer / social media / entrepreneur.

Quite a lot on the plate. Oh, I'm sure other people have more, but
this much work is all new to me. Hoping I can manage my time better to
allot sufficient focus on the jobs I've taken on especially when
things really get rolling with the real-estate company.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.

Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
