I have moved my personal blog to The URL is now not as ridiculous-sounding as this one. It has long been my desire to self-host my blog, and to use Wordpress. Thanks to some generous people, I did not have to spend a single cent for a domain and hosting package!

All posts have been copied to the new blog. As of the moment, I am still tinkering with the CSS codes of my new blog, so do not be surprised if the new site looks and feels different every thirty minutes. I will not update this blog anymore. Thank you for following my rants and raves in this blog! I have had a great time blogging here for almost a year. Please update your bookmarks and blogrolls, and see you all at my new home!

I was one of the nominees in the search for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2010, initiated by Miss Janette Toral. It was heartwarming to be nominated by friends and strangers alike to be one of the emerging new blogs in the blogosphere today. I can now thump my chest proudly because my personal blog's reason for existence - to positively influence others - is already fulfilled!

The Epson LX-300

I was lucky not to belong to the generation where tech specs surprise people like, "Whoah! It prints three pages a minute!", or "Gee, it prints in color with a single ribbon!"

But then, I am lucky to be in a generation to have seen the best of the world's dot-matrix printers - the Epson LX-300! Who cannot ignore the awfully annoying sound as the LX-300 prints? And who could have imagined that multiple copies can be printed using the good ol' carbon paper? An office, nowadays, isn't complete without at least one Epson LX-300 printer stinging every ear in the room.

Apple's iPod Touch is more than a media player. It is a mobile computer that makes you forget that it is an iPod! Thanks to a generous donor, I got myself an Apple iPod Touch a couple of months ago. Since then, it has transformed my mobile and online life! Of course, the reason for this are the countless apps available in Apple's App Store. Here are my Top 10 Apps, in no particular and significant order:

I still cannot get over yesterday's unveiling of the 4th generation of the iPod Touch line. I bought an Apple iPod Touch 3rd-gen around 7 months ago. Suddenly, it feels obsolete, specially that the new version had a slew of fantastic new features, all for the SAME price as its older sibling! Here are some of its new features:

Being idle sometimes does have its own benefits. Late this afternoon, I tinkered with my blog and came up with an idea of creating a portal for the SOCCSKSARGEN Bloggers. What's a blogging group doing without its own blog, yes? I ended up with a kewl site with a free domain and (drumroll) hosted on Blogger! The site uses Google Docs to power its Registration Page, and the blog URLs of everyone who registers automatically appears on the Member Blogs page. Kewl, huh?
