if you still remember that on my previous post, I was able to create a bootable ubuntu Hardy Heron on my usb flash drive. But, I just re-formatted my usb drive to experiment again on a different idea.

After purchasing my own laptop at NT Computer Mart in CyberZone, Megamall, I quickly did so many things to experiment with it. One was to create a bootable Ubuntu (Hardy Heron) on USB flash drive.

After spending few hours on google, I found UNetBootin to be solution. And then I downloaded Ubuntu Hardy Heron torrent and had an ISO file only an hour later.  It’s actually not hard to use unetbootin.

The only problem is, the BIOS on my laptop doesn’t allow booting from USB.  😦

On July 16, 2008,  I went to this site to register myself to the WordCamp.  It is because I want to gain more in-depth knowledge and to explore other possibilities to use WordPress more than just as a CMS, and/or as a blog.

to other interested parties, please go to WordCamp Philippines , or Mindanao Bloggers for more details.

Sponsors of the event: (updated the list of sponsors!)


It’s so nice to be back to studying Ruby on Rails… 😀



That was last year, June, when I first went to Daniel’s blog and read this article about the feeling of boredom in programming. I blogged about it here in wordpress hosted blogsite.

There were 2 people who commented on my blog post. The first one was nakatawa. That is a friend of mine (we met in college) who lives now and work as a computer engineer in the United States . And the second was Daniel himself. He said that it was the programming in question if it is the right thing to do.

Once again this year, The feeling is killing me. This time, it feels more frightening, as it tells me to be afraid of the future. IT is more like dictating me what to do and I tend to feel to be in less control.
