I don't have an E-Games account so I was surprised when I received an email containing a PIN code for "my" account. I normally ignore and delete these kind of messages but the username caught my attention. "WANAHAVSEX" ? What the?! :-|
Gamer and Cosplayer Alodia is currently having an auction for her Black PSP (firmware 3.40OE).
As much as I really want to keep my black PSP because of its sentimental value (it's been almost a year since I've had it with me, I never leave home without it) I must let it go. :c I think that it would be of better use if someone else takes good care of it and enjoy spending time with it. So, I am putting it up
for auction. Starting price is only Php7,000. This is based on thenormal selling price of second-hand PSPs. This offer comes with the following: Black PSP(not slim), already hacked so you could play downloaded games, System Software: 3.40 OE-A, 1GB memory card, the value box & its contents [sleeve, strap, charger]. Please send me a "Note" if you are interested. Ending time would be Sunday, 11:59pm, HK time zone. Thank you! :]
Just last week, I started accepting paid reviews on my blog since everyone seems to be doing it. When I saw the CervoMax capsule, I said to my self, I wouldn't hesitate to promote them free of charge as long as it's for our environment. According to their product page, CervoMax provides increased engine power, lower fuel cost and cleaner air.
Their capsules are very cheap and was developed by a Filipino scientist from the Department of Science and Technology. More information on the CervoMax capsules after the jump.
Description: CervoMax is a fully organic ( 100% plant-based ) combustion catalyst which – when added to the fuel – transforms the structure of the hydro carbon molecules within the fuel, increasing combustion efficiency, as the CVI of the fuel improves.
CervoMax is added to the fuel in ratio of 1:5000mL ( 1mL capsule for every 5 liters of gas ), it is self-mixing and is completely consumed – through the combustion. The effect of a regular use of CervoMax will be:
• Substantial decrease of harmful discharge. • A decrease in environment pollution • Marked improvement of power with lowered fuel consumption ( get more with less! ) • A decrease in engine carbon deposits • Increased engine life ( less wear and tear ) • Better engine performance
All together CervoMax gives us increased engine power, lower fuel cost and cleaner air!
CervoMax Cuts Cost While Reducing Emissions Harmful to you and the Environment
What harmful substances do our use of gas or diesel fuel bring to ourselves, our children and our environment?
CO2 – Carbon Dioxide is one of the several Green House Gases (GHG) that accelerates the Green House effect in the atmosphere with long-term consequence of increased global temperatures.
In large quantities, Co2 is toxic to man, Increased CO2 emissions from fossil fuel that powers our modern lifestyle is one of the main causes of catastrophic climate change.
CO – Carbon Monoxide is highly toxic gas. As red blood cells absorb CO instead of O2, absorption of life-giving oxygen decreases – or even stops.
HC – Hydro Carbons comes with exhaust gas due to imperfect combustion. It causes major harm to man as it adversely affects the respiratory organs – and may cause asthma and allergies. In high concentration, may cause the development of cancer.
Nox – Nitrous Oxide are another highly toxic gas. In high concentrations, it irritates the respiratory organs and cause systemic human poisoning . NOx and HC are major causes of smog.
C – Carbon, Solid soot particles (in diesel), Solid soot particles smaller than 1m, combined with formaldehyde, cause severe damage to the respiratory organs and also cause diseases of the heart and blood vessels, as well as cancer.
Why we need CervoMax Now:
Continuous Rise in Fuel Prices – With oil prices skyrocketing to US $100 a barrel, there’s a need for consumers and corporations alike to increase fuel economy while decreasing the use of fossil fuel. Energy experts declare that 2008 is the end of the era of cheap petroleum prices.
Peak Oil – Scientist worldwide predict that the world’s petroleum supply will be largely consumed over the next fifty years. Apart from never-ending rise in fuel prices, millions of people will suffer once scarcity or loss in fuel supply causes rolling blackouts in addition to high fuel costs.
Global Warming – higher global temperatures ( produced by the Green House effect ) creates: prolonged drought ( producing famine ) , high-intensity typhoons (producing floods and various disease ), continuous destruction of eco-systems humans rely-on. And from sweltering heat to rising seas, global warming’s effects have already begun. This is caused by the collective energy consumption every person and organization on the planet.
Deteriorating Air Quality – World Bank says that heavy air pollution in the Philippines’ 4 largest metropolitan areas costs the country Php 21.2 billion every year in health and productivity cost.
High Cost of Engine Maintenance – the use of untreated fuel leads to early destruction of your car, ship, generator and power plant engines, leading to higher maintenance costs.
Pollution-related illnesses – In Metro Manila along, more than 6,000 people die each year because of air pollution from the vehicles we all use. Most victims of this collective manslaughter are children. Air pollution causes 20$ of all deaths for children less than 5 years of age. It is also responsible for a majority of respiratory diseases.
CervoMax: Positive Effects on Your Engines = Big Savings!
1. Reduced soot/ carbon – in the exhaust gas 2. Cleaner exhaust ( for gas boilers ) 3. Cleaner turbo-chargers ( high thermal efficiency ) 4. Cleaner exhaust ( ports, valves and exhaust channels ) 5. Less coke deposits on piston-rings, in the combustion chamber and on fuel nozzles 6. Cleaner lube-oil systems… and more!
With CervoMax, we can save money while we save the planet! We can work together to arrest the threat of Global Warming while we clean the air!

Cheeseburgers. Delicious but deadly to our heart and arteries but who cares? They're delicious. But would you eat a cheeseburger that came from a can? The same can where SPAM comes from. Sure we can always cook SPAM but how about cheeseburgers? The picture above is supposedly a "fresh" hamburger in a can from a German company. Fresh? From a can? Bread? Patties? Vegetables? FREESHH??! UUMMMMKAAAYY.
Anybody from Germany would like to send a sample to me? I would really love to see how this cheeseburger tastes and looks like when taken out of the can. Just email me ok?
I have been using PayPal for several years now since I have a credit card and savings account based in the US. But with my current setup, it's very difficult to withdraw money since I have to ask my relatives to send it to me via money remittance. That's why I was so happy to learn that I can now add Philippine banks with my Philippine PayPal account.
One of my savings account is with Asiatrust. I asked Lalaine to call them for me for the bank's 9-digit code. As usual, their hotline is clueless on PayPal. Instead of the bank code that PayPal needs, they gave Lalaine an 8-character code: MRMDUS33. Turns out that this is a SWIFT code of HSBC. Since calling their hotline again would prove useless, I decided to send an email. At least it's electronic and someone on the receiving end might at least be knowledgeable about these things right? I clearly specified on my email that I needed a 9-digit bank code and even included a link to eBay's list of Philippine Bank Codes. After 15 mins, I received this reply:
Paypal is a bills payment facility available in the internet, unfortunately Asiatrust is not yet enrolled and included among other banks which can facilitate bills payment in the internet.
I'm no bank expert but do our local banks really need to enroll with PayPal to use the "bills payment facility"? Why won't they just give me the bank code and let me try if PayPal would accept the bank account? Dammit. Our banks are sooo in the 1950s.
Everyone hates email spam. There was a time when I have to delete atleast 200 spam emails on my hotmail account everyday just to read my real mails. It's my fault. I posted my email address on my old website, free to be crawled by spambots.
When I got my brandnew email address from mydestiny.net 8 years ago, I made it sure that if ever I announce my email address, it should be in graphic form or some sneaky format like, email (AT) domain (DOT) com. Click to enlarge
I'm currently subscribed to receive updates on scheduled power interruption from MERALCO for more than 3 years. I haven't encountered any problems until the other day. The email that I received had my email plastered on the TO field, together with about a hundred of other subscribers. I even found Karlo's email address on that list.
If my memory serves me right, the person's name who sent that email is the same as with one of the editors of Thomasian Engineer, the official publication of the Faculty of Engineering of UST. And I believe she's an Electrical Engineer. Same or not, this way of sending email subscription is a spammers dream come true. Just imagine all the emails they could have acquired. And they're not just ordinary emails, some of them are even company emails!
CC should be replaced with BCC by default! By the way, MERALCO's not the only one guilty of this. Check out TXTJOCK.
And there's also the risk of exposing your email address to spambot from forwarded emails. People love to forward and forward emails to their entire contact list. And some of them even post these messages to their blogs, with the entire email header intact.
No matter what precautions you take, you will get spam. You may be careful in taking care of your email addresses, but not all people around you share your techniques. Now lemme think what I would do to my "free" email list from MERALCO. Hmmm.. how about sign them all up for my blog's email subscription? :~)
Thanku for using IMEVRYWHR! Pls be advised that service will no longer be available starting Feb.1,2008.U may continue using the service until Jan.31. For other IM services, try Yahoo SMS Messenger.U must have a valid Yahoo!ID to use this svc Txt HELP to 2258 for more info.P2.50/txt
The subscription rate for IMEVRYWHR were P20.00 for 1 day, P120 for 7 days, and P500 for 30 days. The application's interface sucks but it's a minor problem to bear. Imagine all the savings you would get, while sending unlimited pictures, audio, and messages to fellow IMEVRYWHR users. I have a hunch that this announcement has something to do with the recent Globe-Yahoo! Tie-up. myGlobe IMEVRYWHR competes with Yahoo!Go, which happens to be programmed by one company, Fast Mobile.
So instead of using the IMEVRYWHR service for only P20 per day, Globe subscribers would now be forced to use Globe's uber expensive browsing rates for Yahoo!Go or the preposterously priced P2.50 per message rate of Yahoo!SMS Messenger.
I'm always fascinated with topics that deal with extraterrestrial lifeforms. There's really a big chance that we're not alone in this universe. Just imagine, scientists estimate that there are about 125 BILLION galaxies in our universe and 3,000 of them are visible with the Hubble Space Telescope.
...in 1999 the Hubble Space Telescope estimated that there were 125 billion galaxies in the universe, and recently with the new camera HST has observed 3,000 visible galaxies, which is twice as much as they observed before with the old camera.
Imagine that... 3000 visible galaxies! Even in the world of Star Trek, where they achieved faster than light propulsions, they haven't even explored the entire Milky Way Galaxy! Now with more than a thousand galaxies in our universe, do you really still believe the notion that Earth and some wise guy 2008 years ago is the center of everything? MMMMKAAAYYY.
Area 51 in the United States became famous for being a rumored top secret military installation. These rumors always associate Area 51 with aliens, UFO, and ETs. For the past 50 years, lots of fake photographs and videos featuring flying saucers and aliens have surfaced and were all supposedly taken from Area 51. Though I believe that we're not alone in this universe, I not that gullible to believe their flying saucers and aliens with big eyes concept. It's soooooo 1930s.
But one video has really been famous for the past 10 years. A documentary film that featured an alien being interviewed by supposedly military personnels from Area 51. The video may look convincing, but I never bought the idea of "soul" and "telepathy". It's really preposterous if ask me.
Anyway, I found the documentary on YouTube and as the film's disclaimer says, "make a judgement based on all available information"
Ever heard of watching free TV on your mobile phones? No, not that SMART myTV thing. I'm talking about the very famous China-made mobile phones that you could see everywhere. Unlike SMART myTV which uses Digital Video Broadcast – Handheld (DVBH) technology, these China-made mobile phones are capable of receiving analog TV signals.
Local online auction websites and cellphone shops are swarming with these phones. I was even tempted to buy one last Christmas. These are not your ordinary TV phones. They have features that you could only find on expensive and branded mobiles, and yet they cost way cheaper. The cheapest I saw was only Php5,500. One amazing feature of this phone is the ACTIVE DUAL SIM. Ever since SUN Cellular introduced their unlimited service, people started to carry 2 mobile phones. 1 for Smart or Globe, and the other secondary phone is for SUN. I myself maintain a Globe and SUN line. But carrying two mobile phones everyday is really not that convenient. These China phones have a solution. DUAL ACTIVE SIM.
These phones are capable of activating two different SIM cards at the same time. Meaning, you will be able to receive calls and text from 2 different networks simultaneously. No need to switch accounts very common on those dual SIM attachments that became popular several years ago.
But wait, there's more! Besides being able to watch TV and having 2 active SIMs at the same time, you could also listen to FM radio broadcasts. And unlike Nokia handsets that require a headset to be plugged in, these China made phones can function in FM mode without them. A built-in 2MP Camera is also included. 2MP!
And dig this, the screen is touch screen! It comes with a stylus. So if you're not in the mood to press the keypad, you could always use the stylus or your fingers to touch the screen just like a normal PDA.
I was really close on buying one last December but something happened that I completely forgot about this until I heard this the other day,
300 smuggled TV phones seized at Quiapo mall
The National Telecommunications Commission on Thursday raided a mall whose stalls allegedly sell smuggled mobile television phones in Quiapo, Manila. Agents seized 300 pieces of the mobile phones that also double as portable TV sets.
ABS-CBN News correspondent Maan Macapagal reported that the NTC confiscated the smuggled TV phones at the Manila City Plaza mall, which is beside the Quiapo church.
Authorities said the mall houses several stalls selling cheap TV cell phones.
The mobile phones have no NTC stickers and were reportedly smuggled into the country from China and Korea.
Delilah Deles, NTC-National Capital Region director, said the raid was conducted based on the several complaints they received about the products sold in the mall.
Some of the TV phone brands seized were the Bai Xing C2000, ZTC 160, Baizhao 8928, Ktech K880, fake Nokia N95 and iPhone.
Officials said consumers buy smuggled TV phones since its features are almost the same as the genuine products.
"Quad band, FM station at TV, ang lawak ng reception ng TV, sa US nga 20 channels kuha (The phones have quad ban, FM station and TV, it has wide TV reception, in the US it covers 20 channels)," said Deles.
NTC officials said the cheapest TV phone sold in the market at present is priced between P6,000-P11, 000. Genuine products, meanwhile, are at least P30,000 each.
They added that cheap TV phones being sold in the market from Chinese factories did not undergo quality inspection and did not pass through NTC's tests.
"Ni hindi tayo nakakasiguro kung ano'ng chips ang inilagay diyan (You're not sure what types of chips went in there)," Deles said.
I understand that most (or maybe all) of these phones have no NTC stickers but this I don't understand,
Delilah Deles, NTC-National Capital Region director, said the raid was conducted based on the several complaints they received about the products sold in the mall.
Who's the complainant? Consumers? I doubt it. Nokia? Samsung? SE? Ummm... Maybe. :~)
Sure these products never passed QA tests but isn't it all the same? I mean, the parts and chips being installed on these devices. Are they expecting some kind of Chinese super-spy-chip that could cause World War 3 that they decided to confiscate these phones? *pft*
So now that they confiscated 300+ tv phones, what would NTC do with them? Sell them? Destroy them like pirated DVDs? Return them to illegal Chinese immigrant businessmen? Or will they simply use them for themselves? I soooo would love to work for NTC right now.
Anyway, here's some detailed specifications and features of these TV phones:
* Screen dimension: 3" Wide Screen 16:9 * Built-in TV Tuner(you can watch your favorite local TV channel without any network cost) * Dual Sim ACTIVE/STANDBY * Touchscreen commands * built-in camera 1.3MP and video recording(unlimited) * Bluetooth * built-in FM Radio(No need to use headset) * Mp3 , Mp4 , 3GP audio and video player * Dual 3D Speaker * Expandable Memory using micro-SD card(256mb included) * Built-in games * E-Book reader(.txt format only) * Plug N' Play (under winxp) * File Explorer (phone and external memory) * Webcam Features
What's with movie makers these days? Transformers Movie looked like Die Hard with big robots, the next Star Trek movie looks like it would become Princess Diaries inside a spaceship, and now Knight Rider. Ummmkaayy... new car. But don't you think that it feels more like a Han Solo guy driving a James Bond car? Which by the way happens to talk.
Knight Rider is set to return via a two hour television movie on US Television. It's not a remake, but a sequel to one of my favorite 1980s show. 2-minute preview after the jump
Nothing beats the original KITT
BTW, David Hasselhoff is also set to make a cameo on the movie.
Polymer Vision, Dutch company, has released some juicy info and pictures of their upcoming mobile phone called the Readius. It features a black and white screen that folds when not in use. Yes fold. Fold like a paper.
"You get the large display of e-reading, the super battery life of e-reading, and the high-end connectivity...and the form factor and weight of a mobile phone," said Karl McGoldrick, chief executive of Polymer Vision.
No price has been announced but the CEO hinted that its price would be comparable to current high-end mobile phones
After years of rumors and speculations, Paramount has officially released teasers and infos on the eleventh film of the Star Trek franchise. The film is now being handled by Lost director J.J. Abrams. No. No familiar names in the production crew.
I didn't like the concept of making a new movie about the early adventures of Capt. Kirk. First, Scotty and McCoy are dead. Second, what's the use of the prequel if we all know that ALL of them would NOT die if some Klingon Bird of Prey ambushes them? Third, Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner are too old to play a young role. Which brings us the idea, "HIRE NEW ACTORS AND ACTRESSES TO PLAY A TEENAGE TREK DRAMA". -_-
Everyone saw how Michael Bay destroyed Transformers... I smell the same happening to Star Trek. The only actor from the original series reprising the role is Leonard Nimoy. From the looks of their teaser photos, Nimoy might be in the current Star Trek timeline (after StarTrek Nemesis) narrating the past to some youngsters or he might be sick or something and is reminiscing the old days.
If this is the case then seeing Kirk would be impossible. Kirk died in Star Trek Generations and the rest of the crew would have been dead since humans don't live as long as Vulcans. Scotty could have been in the movie, but the actor is dead. So is Dr. McCoy who appeared as a very old Admiral in the first episode of Star Trek TNG.
I've said to myself before that I wouldn't dare to watch this piece of crap until I saw the teaser. Hearing Leonard Nimoy say, "Space... the final frontier" followed by the StarTrek music nearly brought tears to my eyes...
The cast and story might suck but seeing Leonard Nimoy as Spock one more time, this I got to see. Eventhough he sounded almost like Optimus Prime. :P
*UPDATE* someone just emailed me. He said that this "untitled" movie rip-offed the logo of Zaido. HAHAHAHAHA! Abrams technique on Cloverfield is immediately working on non-trekkies. Good, bring everyone to the world of Star Trek :)
Oh well, my dream of enlisting as a Starfleet cadet may never come to reality. Almost a year after I signed up for the StarTrek Online Beta, developer Perpetual abandons the project.
However, after an early bout of promising announcements, development of Star Trek Online became more cloaked than a Klingon Bird of Prey. Then, in late 2006, came the first of a series of layoffs, followed one year later by suspension of Perpetual's other title, the mythology-inspired Gods & Heroes. The following month, Perpetual was beamed up by a mystery buyer, which unconfirmed reports claimed wanted Star Trek Online to become "more casual."
Finally, this week saw reports surface on MMORPG-centric site Warcry.com that Perpetual was shutting down Star Trek Online entirely. Sadly, GameSpot has learned this report is completely true. A source with knowledge of Perpetual's inner workings confirmed that today is the last day of work for many game designers, programmers, and other developers at the company's San Francisco office.
The source also confirmed to GameSpot that Perpetual was indeed shopping the game license and art assets for Star Trek Online to "a number of interested" MMORPG developers. The source could not confirm or deny reports that City of Heroes developer Cryptic Studios was bidding on the game. However, one MMORPG developer has apparently passed on the project.
GameSpot can also confirm that Perpetual, now officially known as P2, will remain in business as an "engine-only" company. It is holding onto its proprietary MMORPG technology, which it has licensed to BioWare for work on its unnamed massively multiplayer project, which is rumored to be based on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
The last time we experienced extreme slowdown at Destiny Cable was when Star TV pulled their channels off SkyCable just in time for the NBA Playoffs. The massive migration of subscribers forced Destiny to lower our maximum speedcap to 256kbps. Though it was set at 256kbps, that whole year was hell for internet subscribers. Back then, monthly subscription was at P2500. Just imagine the frustration we went through. The SkyCable and Star TV decided to make devilish deal. All Star-branded channels where removed from Destiny. A lot of CATV-only subscribers again decided to transfer to SkyCable. Destiny Cable merged with Global Cable to form Global Destiny to handle their CATV service and formed another company, Solid Broadband Corporation (SBC), to handle the internet services. Since then, Destiny became one (or only) of the fastest residential broadband providers in Metro Manila. SBC removed the speedcap and Destiny was back to its original self when it was first launched. Uberfast.
Solar Entertainment and SkyCable had a misunderstanding of sorts last year. Lots of rumors floated in the internet about the real deal and finally, Solar announced that they'll be pulling all of their channels on SkyCable starting January 2008. One of the most famous channels included is Basketball TV. Deja vu?
I've been experiencing very slow, and I mean VERY slow browsing for more than two weeks. Just check my latest Speedtest on BayanTel's server above. Slow speeds are usually on peak hours meaning: Morning, afternoon, and evening. I was informed that Global Destiny had a massive surge of new subscribers just this month. Definitely SkyCable defectors :))
I tried to test my speed again after 12AM and speeds are back to normal. 2Mbps+
I've been calling and texting Destiny about this problem and still they have not provided a solution. March this year marks my 8th year as a Destiny Cable subscriber. If by that time they don't do something about this problem, BayanTel is just a phone call away ;)
A few days after losing its signal in most parts of the Philippines, some subscribers are still experiencing problems with their Globe Telecom accounts. Can't send and receive SMS, dropped calls, network busy, etc. But today came a surprise. Instead of being unable to use Globe's services, subscribers can call for FREE. Yes, even subscribers with zero prepaid credits can call.
I still have P4.00 and I was able to call several contacts using Globe :P Now, lemme try to call other networks :~) UPDATE: I cannot check my prepaid credits and send text messages. But I can still call any Globe, SMART, SUN, and all landlines with only P4.00 in my prepaid credits. As of now, experiencing Network Busy errors like there's no tomorrow. What's wrong Globe?
Globe's 3G signal has been erratic since January 12 in our house. My N70's constantly shifting from GSM to 3G mode and vice versa for almost every minute causing my battery to go dead in less than 15 hours.
This afternoon, I decided to switch my phone's operating mode to GSM only. Then just a few minutes, my signal bar disappeared. My dad called, asking if I could call Globe since his entire staff lost their Globe signal in Castillejos, Zambales. I called Globe's hotline and the CSR I talked to said they were doing some maintenance and most parts of Quezon City has been affected. I've also asked some of my friends at BNCXE if they're having signal difficulties.
Of course, I didn't fall for that "maintenance script" commonly uttered by ISP and telecoms companies. Alas, a news article over at GMA News reported that the signal problem is being experienced by Globe Telecom subscribers all over the Philippines.
Communication services by mobile phone network operator Globe Telecom were disrupted for hours on Tuesday due to a still undetermined reason, affecting subscribers in parts of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
Jones Campos, head of Globe's public relation division, told radio dzMM that during the afternoon, two separate transmission problems took place in Capiz province and Quezon City in Metro Manila.
Campos said that the first incident was caused by a break in one of their communication cables in Roxas City, Capiz province that affected subscribers in the Visayas and Mindanao.
"Ang good news, na-fix na namin kagad after determining kung saan nagkaroon ng cable break (The good news is that we have already fixed the problem immediately after determining the source of the cable break)," Campos added.
The Globe official told GMANews.TV that a second communication problem was encountered shortly after the first one at about 4 p.m., disrupting signal of their subscribers in parts of Luzon for around 45 minutes.
"What happened is more of a transmission problem. There was disruption in the link between our Ermita and Acacia, Quezon City transmission points," said Campos, adding that affected subscribers included those from Quezon City, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac and other parts of Central Luzon.
As for the actual reason of the signal disruption, Campos said their engineers have yet to finalize their investigation even as the official assured that the problem "can be fixed within minutes."
"This time hindi pa namin alam ang nakaapekto sa kanilang signal but as soon as we have it, we will report it. At this moment, ginagawa namin ang lahat para maayos ang system," Campos said. - Mark Merueñas, GMANews.TV
I still have no signal here at Roosevelt Quezon City and so is my father and his entire staff at Castillejos Zambales.
What kind of dumb ass interns or employees does ABS-CBN Interactive hire these days? One of our clips at gameopsTV has been taken down by YouTube because of another stupid copyright claim of ABS-CBN Interactive, or maybe in this case, because of a "mouse - clicking - trigger - happy - n00b - intern".
The clip that has been removed was one of the first explanations on what happened during the Wilyonaryo brouhaha 4 months ago.. FOUR F*C%^#G MONTHS AGO! The thing I don't get is that how the hell did our video violate their copyright. I just used a short clip of that incident and then proceeded with our own video explanation. HAVEN'T THEY HEARD OF FAIR USE?! OH MY! STUPID F*C&%*G MORONS!
And you know what's funny? Our video actually sided with ABS-CBN. Their news website even credited gameops.net for that video.
In fact, YouTube users beat ABS-CBN in analyzing how the technical glitch on August 20 happened (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQNPPhXXhqc). This explanation was posted by a Filipino gaming site, www.gameops.net and is virtually the same explanation later given and demonstrated by Willie.
The poster from www.gameops.net said that this earlier, original design was the "most logical", "most economical" design.
The video was listed as YouTube's #88 most discussed entertainment video of all time and has more than 500 thousand views. And not to mention, thousands of funny and brain-draining comments :))
This is the second time they've claimed a stupid copyright content on YouTube regarding my videos and more videos will be taken down in the future as long as there's an ABS-CBN word on your tags. Mike keeps calling them dinosaurs, but I bet the dinosaurs are even smarter.
