The “Barcamp Manila” is a successful event organized for developers to informally meet personally and talk about their current projects, pet project software, or libraries.

I had a chance to talk with Dean Michael Berris of Orange & Bronze after his presentation on a C++ Networking library. I was very impressed with the short demo he made about using the library. You can download their project at the sourceforge .

I also met Janette Toral of IMMAP( Internet and Mobile Marketing Association of the Philippines), Marie Casas of PigMata, Dave Q of RedMedia (also one of the organizers of Wordcamp Philippines).

You can also see the replays of the barcamp.

I thought to post my manga face here. so , here it is:


I just wanted to blog about the mysterious blue screen errors that the laptop users of our company experienced. We went to microsoft knowledgebase support, and followed the instructions stated, but still nothing happened. I hope it’s just coincidental when another laptop user from the Cebu reported to us in the IT department that he also experienced this type of blue screen error.


No, I did not do this just for the reason of showing off, dude. I want to show you this bar graph I just did using Adobe Illustrator CS3. The bar graph shows how much of my time at work is consumed.


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.  😦
