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… 😀
