I love my new modem...

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -318914.82



Eversince we've subscribed to Destiny Cable Internet 5 years ago, upload speed was our problem. I've never broke the 10 Kilobytes/sec barrier. But now, I've broken both download and upload limits of Destiny


Your Download Speed: 1315 kbps or 164.37 Kilobytes/sec
Your Upload Speed: 732 kbps or 91.5 Kilobytes/sec


512 download and 256 upload is the speed limit being imposed by Destiny to all its residential subscribers. But for the past 2 years, my download has been exceeding the 512kbps limit. The fastest I've reached so far was 4.3Mbps or 537.5 Kilobytes/sec. But my upload never exceeded 10Kilobytes/sec not until Destiny changed my modem.

Now, my upload is even greater than the 512kbps downstream limit of Destiny subscribers. Hope this is permanent :D

Hmm... BTW.. IM LYING. DESTINY SUCKS!! BOOO!!! YUCK!!

To PLDT DSL, Greendot, Globelines, Bayantel, Digitel users... please don't transfer to Destiny.. I'm selfish. *evil laugh*

Porn + showbiz = more traffic

Captain's Log Stardate -318914.29

For the past month, my blog has experienced more than 8,000 page hits just because of a single entry. Chx's nude pictures!

That post was also the most commented one, reaching almost 50. It's been over a month now and the post still receives more than half of the traffic of my entire blog. Most users came from Yahoo searching terms like "PBB Scandal, CHX NUDE, etc.." Just imagine the traffic I could get if my blog is listed properly in Google.

My original rank in the Pinoy Top Blogs was 54, when news Chx's scandal spread, my blog ranking immediately jumped to 7. I haven't updated my blog for 2 weeks but hits continued. My blog now stands at 19th place but still, my post about Chx's pictures is still gets the highest hits.

A study made by Cat reveals that blogs that cater to TV shows, Entertainment, Reality Shows, etc. drives more traffic than Tech and News blogs.

Most of the showbiz oriented blogs who made it to the top100 in Pinoy Top Blogs is owned by an individual and he/she owns at least a dozen of them who didn't reached the top 100. It seems he/she has been using the blogging media to (spam?) distribute news and gossips to the masa and at the same time earn with his Google AdSense.

But if you add some spice to your showbiz post, you'll get more (as is more) traffic than the usual showbiz traffic you get. A SINGLE entry in my blog about a scandal catapulted me to the top 10 and generated more than 8,000 site hits in just a month and that's not all. I have Adsense in my blog and within 1 month, I earned more than $30. Just imagine how much the guy/gal, who owns all those showbiz blogs, earns in Adsense...

This trend only shows how degraded an average Filipino Internet user is. He/she rather reads gossips and porn than read current events news or the latest tech out there.

The internet now has reached the masses and without proper education and guidance, this will be hell.

PWEDE!!!!
Thursday, November 24, 2005

Captain's Log Stardate -318898.51



Last night was the AMACU's CCS night and the 4th year presentation of AMA microsystem's Si Sir... Si Ma'am... PWEDE!! The search for Mr. and Ms. AMACU Professor 2005. After a highschool reunion, it's time for college. :)

The whole gym was jampacked with students and teachers as the candidates showcased their talents and charisma. I was among the batch that conceptualized the event 3 yrs ago and I was the one who gave the contest the name.



Sir Chris, Sir Eric, and I were the judges of the event.



Andrew and Ihan did an intermission and sang(?) "In the End". I don't know what entered my mind and I went up the stage and kissed Andrew. Yeba! If I recall correctly, Andrew and Karlo kissed me 3 years ago. Andrew on the cheek and Karlo on my lips. -_-



Before the awarding ceremonies, I thanked all the people that helped AMA microsystems for the last 4 yrs. Then I officially transfered AMA microsystems from the College f Engineering to the College of Computer Studies.




Kenneth and Credielle Forever!! w00t!

After the event, Karlo and I talked to Sir Chris and thanked him for always being there for us. He resigned last week since he can no longer bear the accusations being thrown at him. :( We'll miss you sir, AMACU will not be the same if you're not around.

This is the first time I didn't handle this event. Err, maybe just partially since I talked to Dean Emy 2 weeks ago regarding our timeslot. Hehehehe.

PBA Nomination?
Monday, November 21, 2005

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -318888.98



I just saw gann's message on my tagboard about a PBA Nomination. Thinking it was about some basketball stuff, I immediately browsed the website of PBA (Philippine Basketball Association)

After several minutes of searching on the Philippine Basketball Association's website, I found nada. So I finally decided to go to gann's blog. The PBA he was referring to was the Philippine Blog Awards. jepoy ambobo mo... HAHAHAHA! Ok.

I completely forgot about this thing. Thanks to Karlo for nominating my site. :) My site is in the semi finals and is included in two categories. Pinoy Blogger of the Year and Most Informative Blog.

Chances of winning are grim since other semifinalist are top pinoy bloggers like Manuel Quezon, Teacher Sol, the ever famous Bryan Boy, and more. Well being in the semis is enough for me. Ummm... maybe in the finals? *cross fingers*

Groupee. Friendster + MySpace + TV

Captain's Log Stardate -318890.24



Just as you thought you've seen every friend networking site, comes Groupee. A site very similar to Friendster created by GMA New Media Inc.

Kim, a friend who founded DOGZ and now works for GMA New Media, sent me a Yahoo Message a few weeks back about their latest project. I didn't sign up for an account until this afternoon after Deej bugged me in YM.

Groupee works and functions like Friendster. You can add and invite friends, give testimonials, form groups, add photos, and everything you can find on Friendster and MySpace.



There's this new feature called the FAME-O-METER that ranks, umm, how famous you are in Groupee. You could also upload videos to Groupee and have the chance to be seen on QTV Channel 11, weeknights at 11PM.

I don't know how many more of these kind of sites we need to let the whole world know we have friends but for me, Friendster is enough.

Try Groupee at http://www.groupee.com.ph

Batch Reunion
Sunday, November 20, 2005

Captain's Log Stardate -318886.7



Our highschool batch had a reunion yesterday. It was supposed to be a grand reunion from our Saint Claire School Masbate (West Ave) campus but only 11 of us were able to attend.




Most of us were already knew each other during our pre-school days in Saint Claire. In other words, we all grew up together. Sharing all the laughters, the tears and everything. It was a fun night. We've recalled how our whole class was sent to the office of the principal for throwing papers at Rocky, talked about old crushes, etc.

After the reunion, Rocky and I went to Glen's house to play PlayStation 2. Ha! PS2 at 2am? :~) For the record, I haven't beaten Glen in ANY video games we've ever played.. and it still does not change :~(

Another reunion is being planned and I hope all of them can come next time.

NAMP*TA
Saturday, November 19, 2005

Captain's Log Stardate -318884.9



"NAMP*TA", that's the first thing I said earlier when I opened my site GameOPS. It's f&D^S( empty!

I was about to send my webhost a flaming email when I recieved this message:

Hosting PHilippines System Message:

11/18/2005 10:42 AM
- Server 5 Downtime

At approximately 07.05 PM Phil Time, S5 became inaccessable. Engineers at the datacenter are currently working on diagnosing the problem. At this time, we do not know the cause of the outage or an ETA for the issue to be resolved.

Pls follow the thread below for updates.


I was already worried since I haven't made a single backup of the databases and configuration of my site. Then I recieved another email this morning that really irritated me.

Server 5 Clients

Below is the explanation I received from them. Again we feel terrible that this has happened, Im crossing my fingers that the dell engineers are able to repair it and hoping they could recover data on the server.as they will take a look at it this coming monday. Well have to wait and see if they are able to fix it and recover the data.

Our cpanel backups were recovered however they are all corrupted from the disk failure as the tech engineer explains below, Having been in this business close to 4yrs, this is definitely rare to have this severe a hardware failure. Its just unfortunate this happened to us here.

I know this is not gonna make any one feel better or bring back files and dbs that were lost, we will however give everyone on this server 6 free months additional hosting, so when your next bill comes its either gonna be waived if you have a semi-annual plan or quarterly plan (2 invoices) and only have to pay semi-annually for all accounts that are on the annual payment. We will also be upgrading all your accounts to the next higher plan. We will upgrade the space and bw of your accounts individually, for example all accounts that are on the starter plan will remain on starter plan but the space and bandwidth limits will be equal to the the standard plan account. We know this does not fix things but this is the best we can do.

Again we apologize for all the trouble we have caused.

Rez, until Dell engineers repair it on Monday I cannot tell you any more than all drives failed and the data (as you have seen) is basically unrecoverable. I am not sure we'll know even monday what failed and why.

Your cpanel backups worked fine. They are all corrupted from the disk failure thats all.

We truly apologize for this hardware failure, but we had no control over it. Hardware fails unfortunately - it is rare that you get catestrophic failure of a device designed to be redundant, but it happens.

PYSTDSTDSOD S%*&%@# IGSOTD(^W !!! I haven't made a single backup of our database since I was still working on some site configurations! Now I have to reinstall everything else and reconfigure every stfuy98 toyA GxoRD^&$R(!!OIYDT*^$D!!!!

Since the backups were unrecoverable, they gave all affected subscribers a free 6 months and doubled all our webspace and bandwidth. Anyone can recommend a more reliable host?

My Cable Modem died
Thursday, November 17, 2005

Captain's Log Stardate -318877.98



After 5 years of use, my cable modem died last night.

Earlier this morning, Destiny's crew arrived and replaced my old CLDP Motorola CyberSurfr Wave cable modem with a new DOCSIS compliant Motorola SurfBoard cable modem. When Destiny first introduced their DOCSIS compliant modems, I was offered an exchange since we already own the CLDP modem. I refused.



The fastest download speed I achived on my old CyberSurfr modem was 4.3Mbps or more than 500 kilobytes/sec. Way much faster than other broadband packages available. :D I doubt if i could break the 512kbps barrier with this DOCSIS modem. I'll just have to wait. And let's see if this new cable modem can last for another 5 years.

Cable > DSL

Captain's Log Stardate -318862.82

After a long time, I'll post a summary on a single entry. I'll separate them with dates though.

OCTOBER 30, 2005

My dad and I went to my cousin's house to fix some things, her PC being one of them.

Today is Jowele's 9th birthday but since I have a schedule with CB, I wasn't able to attend her birthday party. At past 11PM, Lalaine texted me that something was wrong with Tito Ervin and they've rushed him to the hospital.

OCTOBER 31, 2005



Finished creating the layout for Alodia Fans Club website.

NOVEMBER 1, 2005



Went to Himlayang Pilipino to visit graves of my grandpa, great grandma and great grandpa.



On the way, I took a picture of my Alma Matter... Saint Claire School.

NOVEMBER 2, 2005

Lalaine's uncle (tito ervin) passes away. :(

NOVEMBER 3, 2005

Spent the whole night on Tito Ervin's wake.

NOVEMBER 7, 2005



Karlo asked me to come over to AMACU to talk to Sir Chris and Dean Emy for AMA microsystem's final timeslot on the CCS Night for AMACU's 25th Foundation Week.

NOVEMBER 8, 2005

Tito Ervin's cremation. :(

Long time... and some news about GameOPS
Monday, November 07, 2005

Captain's Log Stardate -318851.01



It's been a while since my last entry. 1 week and 2 days to be exact. Lalaine's uncle died last November 2. That's the reason I barely go online.

A lot has happened here in my blog. 40+ comments on Chx's Nude picture. Well, that explains the overpopulation of the Philippines. Too much Pinoy menyeks. To Mr. John Melvin Castillo, I'll deal with you some other time.

J-Phearson looks like he has a new fan. J-Phearson2 posted a message on my tag board asking me to visit his site identical to the site of J-Phearson. When I checked the original site, I got a 404 error. J-phearson, just an advice, learn to embrace your criticisms. The one posted on the other site referring to us comment posters as pangit really offended me.

I finished doing the layouts for Alodia Fans Club and Siopao Master. Alodia Fans Club owned by Siopao Master has been officially included in the GameOPS Network. I've also purchased siopaomaster.com in behalf of Siopao Master himself.

That's all for now and I'll be posting updates after the funeral of Tito Ervin.
