Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -315160.94

timothy-ellis-cumperI don't know if you ever stumble upon the blogs and videos of a person using the name ellumbra online. His name is Tim Cumper, a married man from UK and according to the blogs and social networking sites I've read, he's close to retirement. *cough* age *cough*

His famous work online is hospitalscams.blogspot.com. It's about his hallucinations of a large scale and organized Philippine real estate / hospital scam. At first, reading his blogs and watching his videos is entertaining. But there is one problem. His blog and videos have been accusing innocent people without even providing a solid proof or evidence. Jun Lozada anyone? :P

He accused his girlfriend Mayen, Mayen's friends, Tierra Maria Estates manager Francis Jalbuena, Tierra Maria Estates itself, Tierra Maria Estates owner Antonio Montinola, Medical Center Paranaque and its doctors, accountant and lawyer, the British Embassy and Filipina Actress Chin-Chin Gutierrez of conspiring just to extort Php100,000 of money from him. All of them blatantly accused on his blogs and videos... ALL FOR Php100,000!!!

Scam Hoax AlertTimothy Ellis CumperTimothy Ellis CumperTim CumperEllumbraTierra Maria Estates ScamTim CumperAbout My Recovery

I first saw his blog from Ms. Noemi's Filipina Images website last February 4. It took me hours to finish reading the whole blog.

timothy-ellis-cumper-1When I posted my opinion, he immediately accused me for being part of some "bayanihan payola" just to defend the victims. He also questioned me for calling Ms. Noemi "mommy". FYI, it's a sign of respect since Ms. Noemi's the same age as my father. I would have also called you "daddy" but that would never happen. I lost my respect for you the time I read all your hallucinations.

To add to his hallucinations, he even accused Ms. Noemi of being Mr. Jalbuena and was only pretending to be Noemi and Lauren. Talk about extreme paranoia.

He literally spammed the internet about the existence of his blogs and videos. A quick search on Google yields 456 results (as of Feb 28th 2008) on the term "hospitalscams". Also search the name of Tierra Maria Estates boss, the hospital, the name of the lawyer, etc. and you will see ellumbra's preposterous blogs.

But the real victim here is her Filipina girlfriend Mayen. Reading his blog would take hours to finish and now that his blog is set to private, most of you can no longer read his hallucinations. I was in the process of saving his entire blogs until he set it to invite only. So if anyone has a complete copy, please send it to me and I'll post it here :) My email address is on the lower right side of this blog.

Anyway, here's a brief summary of Tim's hallucinations:

timothy-ellis-cumper-5
Our British friend Tim, is married and was having some trouble with his marriage. One day he decided to sign up in one of hundreds of online dating websites, DateInAsia to be specific. He met a Filipina who goes by the name Mayen and blah blah blah blah... *poof* They liked each other! Mayen then decided to gave her number the emails and chat became SMS and phone calls.

timothy-ellis-cumper-6Tim decided that it was time to see Mayen and visit the Philippines. But wait, his tracks must be clean so his wife wouldn't know sh!t. So he got a ticket through his friend and finally met Mayen in the Philippines. He met Mayen's friends, colleagues, and family. Mayen introduced him to her co-workers and boss at Tierra Maria Estates.

The Tierra Maria Estates boss Mr. Jalbuena talked with our friend Tim about business proposals and ideas to extend Tierra Maria Estates' presence in the UK. They made arrangements and Tim agreed to provide an uber expensive Tierra Maria Estates UK website.

So after all the business and money talks, our couple went to Mayen province. Mayen introduce Tim to his parents and extended relatives, very common to our Filipino family structure. They came back to Manila, had unprotected secks several times, and Tim finally returned to UK.

timothy-ellis-cumper-2They continued communication via SMS, Yahoo! Messenger chats, and emails. One day Mayen said that she's having an ectopic pregnancy and needed money for the operation. This is where all the paranoia begins. Tim now thinks that the ENTIRE Tierra Maria Estates and the hospital where Mayen's confined is in cahoots to extort Php100,000 from him.

In short, Tim abandoned his responsibilities and the consequences from unprotected sex, experienced severe psychosis, continued listening to his "imaginary" friend Jim, and finally spamming the entire internet with his blogs and videos.

I wanted to quote lots of stuff on his blog but MrkGrismer of theworldoffilipinas.com already did a remarkable job on that matter. (CLICK TO VIEW)Just to add some info on MrkGrismer's points, Tim did plan on having a family in the Philippines. Check out the things I uncover from the filipinouk.co.uk forum (link 1, link 2):



He did plan on leaving (or should I say SCAMMING) his wife and have a family and business in the Philippines. So if he planned this all along, then why bother creating all this hallucinations. He could have just returned and verified all to the authorities.

Here's another interesting one from his blog. Remember, he was still married when he had secks in the Philippines.
No sleep for days - I am in need of some help - essentially from someone who can sympathise with both sides of my situation. I call at the church where I was married - a warden gives me the phone number for the vicar - and I ring him up telling him that I am in urgent need of spiritual guidance, a bit of confession and hopefully a blessing for my journey.

He drives down to meet me in the church office.

I am extremely emotional and fight to hold back my tears - the pressure is immense inside of me.

I start to explain the scenario - my cellphone rings - it's my wife - "Have I drawn out all the money - am I still going?"

I continue explaining things to the vicar telling him that from my point of view my relationship with Mayen has been miraculous - I find him wonderfully comforting - he is totally sympathetic and seriously understands my predicament and my concern over personal security. "The heart has its own reasons" he tells me.

He suggests various options - but the cost of another air fare at a later date is out of the question and I don't want to keep Mayen on her own in this time of need.
So I am not to venture outside the security of the airport - seek assistance immediately and get taken to the British Embassy in Manila - don't proceed with any transactions without an unbiased witness - only deal with the hospital.

He says a wonderful prayer for me and asks me to visit him when I return.

I leave - full of resolve - perfectly calm and inspired - feeling brave yet cautious - once again treading the path of love.

Do this in the Philippines and you'll get a bitchslapped instantly by a bishop. I can't believe that the vicar tolerated all your doings. Case you didn't know, committing adultery is crime... huh Mr. Tim?

He also refers to himself as the "Golden Goose",
I hate the feeling of being the Big White King - the Golden Goose - being fleeced for all they can get - I loathe the undue respect that the exchange rate affords me.

Anyway, I'll just quote some "technical stuff" he mentioned in his blog. Tim actually has a friend who goes by the name Jim (and I'm beginning to suspect that it is actually James T. Kirk... Jim is his nickname in the Star Trek show right?).


This Jim guy actually do the geeky stuff like tracing IP addresses and performing spectral analysis on a video of a webcam transmitted and compressed in the internet. (the hell?!)

I'll quote some of them for you...
Ellumbra posted:

I was hopelessly hooked on the love I felt for her, despite one obvious, glaring anomaly - the IP address on emails from Mayen had not changed - was precisely the same number - going back to the first email she had written to me after leaving the hospital - The Four Feathers.

I had done some crude tracking of this IP address but had always come to a dead end with the ISP provider - domain name "Unknown."

Jim, however, was doing some stirling work on this particular curiosity and discovered that beyond the ISP provider he was able to find the Domain Name. Registered to a telecom company, leasing business from the ISP provider under their own name he was delighted to find that this company's own website listed the areas of coverage that its service provided. Mainly centered around Manila - Paranaque was a name that jumped out of the list at us - but critically - the name that was not on the list was Surigao.

Now this particular service involved a wireless transmission system based around mobile equipment trucks - broadening the coverage area to remote locations - but not Surigao - where Mayen had allegedly been since 23rd August. However, the internet cafe that she was now chatting from, she told me was in the same buildings as her room - in Paranaque - an area listed as being covered by the telecom business associated with her IP address. What was going on?

What's going on? I'm not sure. But your friend seems to be clueless on IP tracking. As far as I know, there is no "telecom" company leasing a service of an ISP "Provider" in the Philippines. (ISP means Internet Service Provider. So Internet Service Provider Provider is kinda redundant don't ya think? :~) ).

If you're reading this, give me her IP address and I'll provide you an accurate answer in less than 15 seconds. I majored in networking and CISCO systems if you didn't know.

Anyway, Jim's discovery might be Smart Broadband. An ISP that is owned and operated by PLDT (ISP) and Smart Communications (telecom). That's the masa ISP nowadays. And if they're really using Smart Bro, there's no need to enumerate ALL the serviced areas. If there's a Smart Communications GSM signal, there IS internet.

I spent a long evening with Jim as he explained the significance of his research and discoveries. It was an evening of quite a few Eurika moments. Of extra special significance was our analysis of the the video of the scar revelation.

Jim had some very sophisticated computer equipment and a breakthrough digital and analogue device for performing spectral analysis and image enhancement. Going through the video, painstakingly frame by frame, it was perfectly clear that this was no genuine scar at all. A complete fake - drawn on with pen and coloured inks by the look of it.

How could you base your conclusions on a very blurry video of a webcam streamed from Yahoo! Messenger? The video probably was even recorded via manual screen captures or by a screen capturing program. Which means that every single pixel you record is based on the image displayed by the receiver's video card.

Now, how the hell does a "very sophisticated" computer equipment analyze a video from this procedure? TELL ME. PLEASE. HOW? Spectral analysis on a blurry screen grab. WHAT THE F%$&?! -_-

My former multimedia professor would laugh if he reads this. Really. You cannot base your conclusions on a blurry screen captured webcam video. Folks, we're seeing another Sigaw ng Bayan guy here.

Ellumbra posted:

I discovered a site called Filipina Images. After following a trail of recent posts by Tierra Maria Estates - done in an effort to lessen the domination of my incriminating videos and blogs in the search engines.

It seemed I might get some unbiased reactions - it was relevant to the IMAGE of the FILIPINA after all.

What did they think?
Well - I started a thread going with a posting (you can read it all below.)
If comments are left - I am sent a notification by email from the site - perfectly normal.

What I have not come across before is that these notifications contain the comment author's IP address.

Since we have been keeping careful track of the IP addresses - WE KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT THIS COMMENT WAS SENT FROM THE COMPUTER USED BY THE MARKETING MANAGER PREVIOUSLY, TO READ TRACKED EMAILS THAT WERE SENT TO HIM.

Despite pretending to be Noemi - the author of the blog - who remarks quite firmly that she does not know him personally.
A further comment made by EMILY - also was sent from the same computer.
What can one deduce from this subterfuge and the fact that Noemi herself denies that it happened?
They are obviously in cahoots - as thick as thieves - another posting on her linked sites contains a short write up about Tierra Maria Estates.

The quantity of coincidences - arriving from so-called "only showing an interest" members of the Philippine community - absolutely astonishing - if you were to believe one word of it - they've all been told exactly what to say.
The bottom line is - for them to create doubts in my mind - guilt - leading me to remove my writings and videos. Unfortunately - every time I discover more of their deceitful measures - I am inspired to put even more on the Internet. Hence this - the latest posting.

As I said earlier, Tim accused Ms. Noemi of pretending to be someone else just because of a simple IP address. Again, Jim isn't doing his homework. Residential ISPs in the Philippines operate by assigning dynamic IP addresses to its clients. Everytime you reconnect, you are assigned a new IP address.

Sorry Jim, our "third world" country isn't as rich as yours to provide every ISP subscriber a static IP. And if you're also reading this, I think it's about time your friend Tim seeks medical attention. ASAP.

Mr. Cumper, is it safe to assume that the "Star Trek fanatics who's life experience comes courtesy of computer gaming" is me? If yes... FYI, I don't play computer games but only CONSOLE games. I don't get it that you have stooped to this level on insult. Running out of options? How about raising the white flag and face all your responsibilities with your Filipina girlfriend?

Tired of fabricating all these lies that you resorted to become a racist? "Little brown noses" huh? ;;)

Anyway, at least I do not travel half across the globe just for secks.

Tim Cumper posted:

Francis Jalbuena has been consistently reading his emails at this IP address - and this is the address from which the comment was posted. (see statistics elsewhere)
The comment was written by Francis M Jalbuena and was posted to appear as if it were written by Noemi Dado.
Hence her strenuous denial about it - and the Tierra Maria Estates write up on her site - posted by Lauren Dado - of course - there is no connection there at all.

I'm sure you are reading this Mr. "timmy" and this conclusion is completely wrong. How can you track someone's IP with your BTInternet or Yahoo! Mail by just saying he's "consistently reading his emails at this IP"?? Well you can, technically, if your friend Jim planted a trojan horse or something into Mr. Jalbuena's computer. But I don't think he has the capability or skillzzzz in doing that. Unless he's using some techniques used by spammers. Oh well... that won't work with me :)

EDIT: Ok, I stand corrected. He is using a different email provider that uses techniques used by spammers to track their target. Cool.

Your friend Jim is also clueless on Wordpress am I right? The entry is clearly posted by Ms. Noemi by just looking at the username used. LOL.

Tim Cumper posted:

First of all, a big thank you, guys and gals - for helping to propogate my blog across the Internet - it saves me an awful lot of copy pasting.

In case you didn't noticed, all of your links have a rel="nofollow" tag. Or should I go on explaining what "nofollow" is?

Tim Cumper posted:

Jepoy - you're going to enormous lengths also - but you are also exaggerating and distorting - and nit-picking about things which are completely irrelevant.

Was I distorting? I merely quoted technical stuff on his blog and now here I am distorting things. Irrelevant? I don't think so. All of these are relevant unless you produce at least a single solid evidence for all of us to analyze.

Tim Cumper posted:

OK - Jepoy - you are right about one thing - we didn't need sophisticated equipment in our analysis of the webcam recording - just a pair of eyes.

LOL. Look guys, more lies. Might just prove how his whole hospitalscam is just one big fat lie. You cannot just base your conclusions by looking on a blurry video. How pathetic.

How about a song from Star Trek's Brent Spiner?



Tim Cumper posted:

The actress (Chin-Chin Gutierrez) is accused of not using her high profile to denounce the activity going on in the firm that she endorses.

Because how could you denounce an activity that only exists in one sordid mind of a delusional man? And just because your pathetic attempt to acquire her contact number failed, you openly accused Chin-Chin Gutierrez on your videos and blogs as the one "endorsing" the "whole event".

If celebrities like her could be contacted so easily, then I should have lots and lots of authographed Maria Ozawa DVDs right naaaoo!

Tim Cumper posted:

Don't be stupid Jepoy - don't you see - most of the people became implicated after the original "simple scam" went wrong - and I started demanding proof - so fake evidence was needed, false testimony was needed.

Had I coughed up straight away - Php100,000 - maybe a 3 way split - not bad for a days work, eh?

Sure thing Mr. Golden Goose. If that's worth of 3 days work, he shouldn't have plans on selling his properties. All he needed to do was a "3 way spit" :~)

Tim Cumper posted:

So - like I say - stick to the facts - stop distorting things - people can read for themselves.

I have always emphasized that my readers should use their own judgement. I have never, ever forced them to side with me.

Tim Cumper posted:

Another point that you are all making very clearly - is that your Internet knowledge is far from being in its 3rd world infancy that you would like to portray at times when it suits you.

O RLY? You really love to emphasize the "3rd World" status of our country no? May I remind you that the virus that crippled millions of computers, including the computers of your "1st World" government, came from my Alma Matter. FYI. :~)

Our country might be "3rd world" with your eyes, but a lot of my countrymen are smarter than you... wayy wayyyyyy smarter.

Tim Cumper posted:

It's perfectly clear that this is all circulating around a group of bloggers etc. who are all linked - trying to overpower with quantity - certainly not quality.

Well, don't worry. We're in the process of telling EVERYONE about your blogs. Just wait. :)

Tim Cumper posted:

Again all this reveals is an act of cowardice - bullying - still no sign of TIERRA MARIA ESTATES themselves.
They're perfectly content to hide in the shadows - letting you folks do their dirty work - by proxy.

Can't wait for everyone to read his blogs. 101% sure he'll accuse the entire Philippines after that :P

I have a suggestion, why not open your blog for comments. I'm sure a lot of readers would love to post their comments on your illusions.

{{ -- End entries added on March 2nd 2008 -- }}

Now my fellow bloggers, readers, internet surfers or who anyone who has finished reading this entry, please... PASS THIS TO EVERYONE. We do have Tim Cumper's permission to "announce it all we like to the local media".
Ellumbra February 5th, 2008 at 12:01 pm says:

Jepoy - just another stooge eh? On the Bayanihan payola?
Great - announce it all you like to the local media - I welcome it.

Blog about this, post this on to your respective e-groups or mailing lists, post this on your favorite forums, etc. Mr. Tim wanted attention, now lets give him one.

I am not influencing anyone to side with me or Ms. Noemi. Use your own judgement based on all available information on his blogs. The entire archive of his site can be downloaded via any of the links below. I recommend reading the PDF archive of hospitalscams.blogspot.com. The archive is a portable format and can be read on your phone, ebook readers, or computers.

And again, I make a simple request. Blog and spread this to your friends if you think Mr. Tim Cumper has been suffering from psychosis. Drop a comment or email me your blog link and I will update this entry to include yours.

Oh one more thing, be ready to be accused as being part of some "bayanihan payola" if you don't believe any sh!t he has said. Think of him as an internet troll, n000b and spammer rolled into one. Deal with extreme caution. I won't be surprised if one day, he'll accuse every Filipino conspiring against him just to milk his Php100,000 (or Php 81,837.69 to be exact).

It's been almost 1 month since I first blogged about Tim Cumper's illusions and paranoia on the internet. Judging from the dates found on his Flickr and other accounts, he was already blogging about this since late of 2007. But as of today March 23rd 2008, I have yet to find any other supporter of his claims besides his imaginary friend Jim.

A lot of bloggers have also condemned his doings by blogging about him. And because no one seems to believe Tim Cumper, he has now resorted to personal attacks against me, Ms. Noemi Dado, Lalaine, Andrew, MrkGrismer, SouthernDon, and anyone who has condemned or will condemn his doings.

This action only proves my earlier point. He will attack ANYONE who doesn't believe what he is claiming. He attacked my girlfriend and called her dirt, my friend as an excrement, and the Filipina in general as scum (he linked to filipinaimages.com which advocates the image of Filipinas online).

He has repeatedly claimed that we have been distorting the issue in order to "turn the tide of opinion" against him. If you would read Ms. Noemi's blog and mine, we have always emphasized that you, our readers, should use your own judgment.

Here's an example of a very libelous and personal attack against me. He stole my picture which I clearly marked as "copyrighted" on my personal blog. After stealing the photo, he cropped and pasted the photo on an obscene picture (nude photo) and included some libelous remarks. Sure anyone can display my pictures provided that they don't alter and provide a link to the source.

My FAKE MySpace Profile description:

CorruptGeek's Blurbs

About me:
I own a geek shop in Quezon City - Philippines - you know the place - one of the most corrupt places on earth. Yeah - you guessed right - I'm corrupt as well. I'm spending my time at the moment working on behalf of a real estate business - TIERRA MARIA ESTATES. They tried to scam this man in the UK - but it didn't work. He's covered the INTERNET with blogs and videos EXPOSING THEIR EXTORTION. It was a nasty thing for them to do. But as I'm corrupt as well - I'm pretending that the FAKE ECTOPIC PREGNACY was real all along - he, he - don't tell anyone. He's actually got a video of the fake scar being revealed during a webcam chat - and there's no way the firm can get round that really - so I suppose I'm really wasting my time. That's why I'm such a SAD GIT. Here's one of my geeky websites. http://jepoy.bengero.com/

Who I'd like to meet:
I'd like to meet Adolf Hitler, Jack the Ripper, Francis M Jalbuena - lots of villains and corrupt people - sick people with twisted minds - just like me. And Captain Kirk.

First, I already met William Shatner aka Capt. James T. Kirk. ;))

Quezon City as one of the most corrupt places on Earth huh? I wonder what would Mayor Sonny Belmonte and Vice Mayor Bistek would say about this. Since he mentioned that Quezon City is one of the most corrupt, I'll quote one of his statements:

Tim Cumper posted:

This is not - I repeat - this is not a racial issue - so don't anybody dare to suggest that it is. It is about a small, specific group of people only.

Hehehehehe.... Small group only. Really? Then why are you calling Quezon City as one of the most corrupt places on Earth if your actions are only targeting a minority? I will do my best to launch a petition to the City Council and have you declared as persona non grata for issuing such statements against Quezon City.

I don't know what has gotten into him that he is now attacking me. He created another imaginary post on his blogs. Though my name was not mentioned, a link to my fake MySpace profile and my initials are included in the post

Tierra Maria Estates Scam - Confession
March 23, 2008 by ellumbra



Hello world,

I have a secret I really want to share with you all - I feel guilty about what I am doing - let me explain.

There are a gang of us over here in the Philippines - we've been asked by the guys at Tierra Maria Estates to post stuff on the internet - as a response to this guy in the UK - who has put loads of videos and blogs up - it's the story of how he was scammed.
It was two people mainly, who work(ed) for the real estates firm who were responsible - they were pretending that the girl had to have an operation for an ectopic pregnancy - just so that they could get some money from the guy.

But then the guy decided the best thing to do was deal directly with the hospital - and that made it really difficult for the scammers - more and more people became involved - because they had to keep sending fake evidence to him - to try to shut him up - because he was starting to spread the word around.

The thing is, you see, I wasn't there at the time, I don't know what happened at all - but it was obviously a very bad thing to do - scamming like this - but I have to pretend that I know that it was really true - that the girl really was pregnant.
Well it's quite easy for me to do - I'm so full of contempt and jealousy - I hate all westerners - in fact one of my friends calls them "Fat white monkeys" - I think that's a good description - but I'm starting to feel really bad about this whole thing.
For a start - what I'm doing is only drawing more attention to the whole affair - it can't be doing Tierra Maria Estates any good at all.

The story is so detailed - all the facts are there - just how it happened - he's even got a video of the girl revealing a fake scar - to try to get more money from him - after the first attempt failed.

I don't know what to do.

Because I'm a Filipino - I would feel a great shame if I changed my opinion - if I were to stop doing this - but all these lies I keep telling are really making me feel bad - and I'm letting the whole world know that we are prepared to support scammers - help them out - do their dirty work for them.

Oh it's so complicated - please help me.Thank you.
JPB
Check out the whole story HERE.
And check me out at MySpace.


Mr. Timothy Ellis Cumper, may I point you to EFF Blogger's Guide on Defamation. I have records of every personal attack you have made against me and Ms. Noemi. And since both of us are not related with Tierra Maria Estates and we don't even know anyone from that company, your accusations against us ARE ALL CONSIDERED LIBELOUS AND DEFAMATORY. Just a reminder from your friendly neighborhood, ummm.. what do you call me? Ahh.. yes "geek" ;)

Who knows, I might visit Maidenhead soon :)


--

My dear readers, have I twisted something here on my blog? Have I somehow influenced you to side with me? My reactions are purely based on what he has written on his hospitalscams.blogspot.com blog. And the ones written there are the only facts available. We were requesting more proofs from Mr. Timothy Ellis Cumper but instead of giving us one, he attacked everyone who opposes his beliefs.

You said it yourself Mr. Tim Cumper, YOUR STORY SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. So stop whining like a spoiled brat and open your blog for comments. Better yet, return to the Philippines and file whatever diplomatic or criminal protest you like. Stop whining behind your computer. Be a man. Act your age.

Who's the chicken now?

Jepoy - I said . . .
"Great - announce it all you like to the local media - I welcome it."
So what makes you think you have the right to spread my story, my photographs around on the Internet?
Think again - sharpish.


Earth to Tim... This is Earth calling Tim... Last time I've checked, blogging is now considered media. And the blogs (and forums.. you'll have to search them) who blogged and talked about your accusations are all "local" media :). If you don't want people spreading your blogs, then close them. Make them private and stop whining. You may want to complain to Google too, they're also making copies and spreading your blogs.

Regarding your photos, I am posting your pictures on this blog entry alone. I am posting them under the United States Fair Use. I never claimed copyright or ownership of the photos nor I have edited them to defame or insult you. It is still under the Fair Use doctrine of the United States Copyright Law :)

But unlike you, you stole my picture and pasted it on a nude picture. Another one is edited to defame my name and personality. You have always claimed that I have been attacking you personally, look who's doing it now? Read this entry again. I have never called you derogatory names such as "imbecile", "chicken", etc.

Remember, I have copies of your defamatory work against me. You might want to read this. I might find some good pro bono lawyers from UK who's willing to share a hand. Who knows?

You know I would welcome a legal case about this affair. For a start - Tierra Maria Estates would have to come up with some serious proof - that would stand up to the British Legal system.
Of course, they are incapable of doing that because it was all a scam - the same as you are INCAPABLE OF COMING UP WITH ANY PROOF.


AFAIK, You have to answer to US and Philippine courts since your blogs are all hosted on the United States. And if you really have a valid claim then why not file a formal protest here? You do have "solid" proofs right? Don't tell me you're chickening out.

Tim Cumper posted:

You're just hot air and chicken sh!t.


Go on, continue calling me names. :)

Tim Cumper posted:

So carry on with this stupid game all you like. It's only making things worse for you.

Quezon City is in the Philippines isn't it? CHECK THIS


Making things worst for me? Or for you? If I'm just a hot air, you shouldn't be concerned at all. You don't have to create my fake MySpace profile, you don't need to create me a fake confession statement, and you don't have to post this entry I have quoted from your blog.

Your biggest mistake was to launch a barrage of personal attacks against me. You could see that I was not updating this issue anymore and I have completely forgotten about you and this scam of yours. Then one day you called me filth, my girlfriend dirt and my friend an excrement, created a fake MySpace blog, fake posts, etc. Bad move. BAAAAD MOVE.

My friend Spock advised me earlier, "Logic dictates that his actions are all because of fear and anxiety..."

LOL.

Guys, look at this. Tim Cumper edited my fake MySpace profile and has inadvertently revealed that the profile is indeed fake. Just look at his booboo:

He's sending me a message through "my" MySpace account. LOL. Please tell your imaginary enemy that I have already sent a reply to her email and I'm expecting an answer. If she don't, I'll be reporting her to her ISP (Bt-central-plus) for a phishing attempt.


LOL. You're insulting my intelligence. Try harder.

Our friend again shows his cluelessness on the world of the intarwebs with his latest blog entry. He posted something controversial on the internet but expects you either agree with him or shutup if you think he's stupid or too paranoid. So if you think he's just making these scams up, you should shutup and never ever blog about him. idi... never mind.

He's emphasizing on his latest entry my use of the words paranoia, hallucinations, and psychosis. You know what Mr. Birthday Boy (his birthday is today March 29 FYI), your attacks on me proves the authenticity of my post. You accused me of being paid by the guys at Tierra Maria. I haven't met anyone of them for Pete's sake! Even Ms. Noemi, SoutherDown, MrkGrismer, etc.! So I have every right to call you an extremely paranoid man.

About your racial comments.. why don't you try doing that on a black man in US, (Black noses...) Try it. Really.

Tim Cumper posted:

So you see JEPOY - I have very good reason to attack you personally - YOU ARE A TWISTED, BIASED AND BIGOTED LIAR.


So if our local broadsheets, TV stations, media, bloggers, etc. reacts the same way as me, then you would attack them all personally? My my my... that's a lot when they finished reading your story. FYI, we submitted all your links to the local media, and even our senators. Don't be surprised if a Philippine ambassador knocks on your doors with some local police :)

To my readers (I have about 700 visitors per day so I'm not really patronizing and self important) please read the comments of the people who have read Tim's blogs by clicking here. A dozen opinion is more credible than one sick mind.

Tim Cumper posted:

My writings have presented the facts as they appeared to me.


And we based all our reactions to the facts you presented. If you still reason that only you can understand the facts then it's no use to keep your blogs up as it don't serve their purpose, TO WARN OF A HOAX.

Anyway, I was planning to give you a birthday present today but due to an emergency, your birthday gift will have to wait. Don't worry, I'll still give it to you :)

I'm too tired (it's 3:42AM) to quote everything he has posted, you may read it here. I know most of you have IQs greater than of Mr. Cumper here so I'll leave it to you to analyze all his stupid comments.

By the way Mr. Cumper, if you are going to quote 98% of my articles or entries, you must link back to the page where you got it. I do have a CC BY-NC-SA license. Where's my link huh? "sharpish". (I'm really loving the new British words I learn from you.. Scandle. LOL)

Sun Acquires MySQL
Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -315156.8

Received an email from Sun Microsystems regarding their MySQL acquisition. Here's the letter.

Dear John,

Today is a big day for Sun and the MySQL community. We have closed our acquisition of MySQL AB and proudly joined forces with this open source icon and the company behind the world's most popular open source database. Sun already is the leading provider of platforms for the Web economy and the largest commercial open source contributor. As of today, Sun also is a formidable player in the $15 billion database market. We thank you — our joint customers, developers and community members — for making this possible.

Already, MySQL, downloaded 60,000 times a day (or once every two seconds), is by far the most popular platform on which modern developers are creating network services. Enterprises and developers alike want fast, scalable and open solutions backed by world-class communities and support — from web-based companies like Facebook and Google to finance and telecommunications companies, to high schools and college campuses, to startups, high performance computing labs and IT managers in the Global 2000 who take a more hands-on approach. The rapid adoption of MySQL is breathtaking.
But there remain unlimited possibilities, particularly with more traditional CIOs who disallow the usage of products that aren't backed by commercial support relationships or who are simply more comfortable relying on vendors like Sun to manage global, critical infrastructure.

Together, Sun and MySQL have an opportunity to achieve Unlimited Scale. Providing global enterprise-class support 24x7x365, Sun can grow the MySQL customer base and community even further. If you've been watching Sun over the last number of years, you'll know Sun is already committed to the business model at the heart of MySQL's success - first investing to grow communities of users and developers, and only then creating commercial services that attract (rather than lock in) paying customers.

Our enterprise customers worldwide can now take advantage of MySQL's market-leading open source database on your choice of platform, OS and language with less risk — for up to a 90% lower total cost of ownership over many traditional database solutions. MySQL users, as with Sun's, already run MySQL across every major operating system — Linux, Windows, Solaris and the Mac — and every major system platform, from IBM, Intel, AMD, Dell, Sun and HP. Even more so today, Sun provides the most complete suite of support options to rapidly build and deploy fast, efficient, effective and secure Web-based applications and services.

For our worldwide developers, Sun working with the MySQL community will more quickly take the MySQL database to the next level of scalability and performance by tapping into Sun's $14 billion in expertise, technologies and global support. Bottom line, Sun is putting a billion dollars behind the "M" in LAMP, increasing our already-strong commitment to open source communities, to deliver a more powerful Web application development platform. And we assure you, MySQL will remain just as open, fast, free, easy-to-use and innovative as you've always seen. And much more.

Additionally, this arrangement does not change Sun's long-standing relationship with Oracle and Sybase in the marketplace. Just as Sun supports customer choice of platform through AMD, Intel and SPARC, customers will have a choice of database systems for use with Sun's platform offerings.

Over the next months, Sun and MySQL will strive to reach full integration globally. Due to relevant country legal requirements, different timelines for completing that full integration may apply. Nonetheless, Sun will work to meet your needs as a valued customer, whatever they may be.

Thank you for relying on Sun and MySQL for years as trusted business partners. We look forward to continuing to help you achieve and exceed your business goals for decades to come.

Jonathan Schwartz
President and Chief Executive Officer
Sun Microsystems

You can read more about Sun's acquisition of MySQL on sun.com or on my blog. And I invite you to join myself, Rich Green and Marten Mickos at a virtual town hall on March 4, during which we'll give you more details and answer your questions. More information is available at sun.com/mysqltour.

Peel Away Ads Now Available

Captain's Log Stardate -315155.81



I just installed a Peel-Away script on my blog and will be offering this ad spot for $60 per 30 days. But for now (or until Google decides if it would re-index my new URL), I'll be offering the peel-away space and my other 125x125 ad space for FREE! Yes FWEEEE!

This will be a first come first served offer. Each blogger / website owner / advertiser will be given 7 days each for the spot. If there are no new advertisers that would avail my free adspaces, your ads will re-run for another 7 days.

For the Peel-Away ad spot, I need a 500x500 similar to this. The image above the diagonal text is the only visible part when the ad is "peeled away".

125x125? These ad blocks are very popular these days. You know the drill. ;)

Interested? Send me an email :)

Nokia's Morph Concept Phone
Tuesday, February 26, 2008

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -315155.04



Nokia recently announced a new concept phone based on nanotechnology. The concept phone is stretchable and flexible and can be molded into different shapes.

Nokia's new Morph concept phone would use nanotechnology to give it a flexible body with a transparent display that could be re-shaped depending on the user's needs, a far cry from today's solid and chunky devices. Even the electronics inside it would be transparent and flexible, so the whole phone may be twisted and stretched into bracelet shapes or tablet form, and nanotech cleverness means it would even clean itself.

Developed in cooperation with Cambridge University, this glimpse of a distant future is now on display at the MoMA in New York.

Support Sofie Garrucho on iTALENTSTAR
Monday, February 25, 2008

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -315152.92



Sofie Garuccho needs our votes! She's currently among the 80 participants of the iTALENTSTAR Online Talent Competition in four South East Asian countries, namely the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

iTALENTSTAR is an online talent competition involving participants from four Southeast Asian countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines - an interactive experience that kicks off from 22 February 2008.

Visit Sofie's official iTALENTSTAR Friendster Account to vote for her. Spread the word!


CONCEPT OF iTALENTSTAR

iTALENTSTAR is an online talent competition involving participants from four Southeast Asian countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines - an interactive experience that kicks off from 22 February 2008.

The first talent competition of its kind in Asia, iTALENTSTAR is held in collaboration with Friendster – the No. 1 online social networking portal in Southeast Asia. With over 28.4 millions unique users globally and 25 millions across the asia pacific regions,the Friendster network promises to make iTALENTSTAR a talent search of unprecedented proportions.

Targeting internet-savvy socially-active networkers of minimum 16 years of age, iTALENTSTAR seeks to uncover the hidden talents behind the web.


Propelling Personal Media To The Next Height

The vision of iTALENTSTAR is to showcase online users’ grasp of Web 2.0 technology – also known as User-Generated Content Creation that includes online video, photos, and blogging. In iTALENTSTAR, the contestants (known as iTALENTS) display their dynamic personalities and creative wit as they undergo a series of ‘challenges’ that stimulate self-expression and the uniqueness of the individual.

We now live in a truly “digital” era, where society’s dependence and, interestingly, its use of technology are overwhelming. The paradigm has shifted such that our consumption of traditional, mass media (television, radio and print) has become nearly replaced by that of online, personal media – i.e. internet media that we digest at our own time and in the mode that we deem meaningful.

Likewise, the communicative methods people employ over time have changed. The online-savvy users today embrace personal media – e-mail, instant messaging and Web 2.0 technology – to share their passions and ideas.

But who are those people who aspire the most number of others with their passion and outlook? These are the people iTALENTSTAR aims to discover. In iTALENTSTAR, we marry this new generation of empowering individuals who yearn to create their own contents, within a competitive environment.

iTALENTSTAR will steer social networkers towards a new wave of personal media, which will no doubt sweep the online community and further its progress towards a more dynamic and technologically sophisticated society.

Overview

The competition kicks off with 10 male and 10 female contestants selected from each country’s pool of star-wannabes. They compete to knock out their opponents through 4 rounds of provoking challenges before fighting it out to become the Champions representing their country, and eventually defeating their overseas counterparts in the final challenge to ascend the throne as the Asia iTALENSTARS (1 male and 1 female).

While the iTALENTSTAR competition is open only to Friendster members residing in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, online users from Asia and beyond are welcomed to participate in the voting.

Bringing together talent, creativity and fraternal spirits between countries, iTALENTSTAR has created a new platform for sharing one’s gifts and culture, communicating between friends, and most of all, having all kinds of fun.

Introducing the HiPhone

Captain's Log Stardate -315152.26



The iPhone is just an overpriced mobile phone and an iPod built into one. No 3G, no MMS, no videos. The price is just too much compared to the available Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Samsung mobile phones today. And most of them are way cheaper than the iPhone.

A friend once nagged me to buy his unlocked iPhone for P17,000. Though tempted of the eye candies of the iPhone, I resisted his offer. I'm a heavy texter and I need MMS and 3G access for my laptop. Sure the iPhone has built-in WiFi but I doubt that it can handle big PSD files for email. So I opted for a cheap but very useful Nokia N70.

There were several iPhone clones from China that are currently available but none of them even came close to the real thing. Until this HiPhone / DigitalRise D800i HiPhone came along.

A seller from sulit.com.ph claims that the HiPhone is 99% identical to the original Apple iPhone and provided these features and images:

1. 3.5 inches big screen
2. Dual SIM slots network switch
3. Triband GSM 900/1800/1900MHz that supports USA GSM standard.
4. Web addresses entering; web browsing, WAP setting, web address management.
5. Unlocked to any major network carrier.
6. SMS, MMS, voicemail and cell broadcast
7. MP3, MP4, file playing, recording, phone call recording.
8. 2.0 mp camera, video capturing, photo viewing, playing
9. Hands free speaker phone. 3D sound.
10. Bluetooth supported.
11. TF card supported with free 512mb Micro SD.
12. Diversified screen switch
13. One-Key return
14. Automatic screen rotation
15. Comes with free Rubber protector for HiPhone.
16. With USB cable for data transfer and charging.





Pretty cool for a knock-off right? Multi-Touch, Dual SIM, MMS, and Video Recorder! Wait till you hear how much. The seller says that he's selling the units for Php8,000 (roughly US$200) per piece and he's willing to lower the price if I get 2 or more units. Cheap compared to the original Apple iPhone but not cheap enough for me to get one. A Nokia 6120 Classic currently retails for Php8,500 and that phone has definitely more features than the HiPhone. If he lowers his price to Php4,000, I might consider getting one for my self :~)

I checked Google about this HiPhone and here's the official features of the DigitalRise D800i HiPhone from the supplier:

Screen: 3.5 Inch 262K Colors QVGA G320 x 240 Pixel

Network: GSM850/900/1800/1900Mhz

Blog Layout Reboot and A New URL Too :~)

Captain's Log Stardate -315151.96

I finally decided that it's about time to abandon my beloved default 800x600 web resolution design and move on to the next era. Ever since I started to get serious with this web design stuff, all of my layouts were optimized for the 800x600 screens. I was hesitant at first but upon checking my blog traffic, only 7% uses 800x600. The rest are 1024x768 or above.

And I also decided to abandon my PR4 jepoyeng.blogspot.com domain in favor of my PR0 but 6 year old domain. You may want to change your bookmarks. My blog is now located at http://jepoy.bengero.com.

I was faced with the difficult decision several years ago when Jangelo offered me a free .ph domain and webhosting. I declined his offer thinking that I may lose my readers. Oh well... here I am again. But this time no more noes. Who knows, I may get that pagerank back in just a few weeks.

The blogspot.com in my URL has been interfering with the relevant Google ads that are being displayed on my blog. Example, I was blogging about iPhone but the ads that keep on displaying are about blogs. Now with a different domain, I was hoping that those pesky ads about blogs would disappear one by one. *cross fingers and toes* I needed to decide now since blogging has become part of my monthly income.

Now another problem, would Google index my page?

Cecilia Cheung Scandal
Sunday, February 24, 2008

Captain's Log Stardate -315147.93



Just when you thought everyone was innocent, a sex scandal would pop from nowhere. It's unfortunate that one of the victim on this latest sex scandal is my longtime crush, Cecilia Cheung. Apparently, these scandalous photos were taken by Edison Chen in 2005, stored on a laptop, and "stolen" by the people who repaired the laptop.

The Edison Chen photo scandal is a media scandal in early 2008 involving Hong Kong actor Edison Chen Kwoon-hei and various actresses, including Gillian Chung Yan-tung, Bobo Chan Man-woon, and Cecilia Cheung Pak-zhi.

In November 2006, Chen allegedly purchased a pink PowerBook from eLite Multimedia, a computer shop in Hong Kong's Central district. According to the police, Chen's "Cotton-candy Mac" computer was sent in for repairs, and an estimated 1,300 intimate photographs of Chen and numerous female celebrities may have been accessed and copied by one or more of the shop's employees without consent. Chen's photographs were reportedly taken some time between 2003 and 2005.

One close friend of Chen indicated that he liked to take photographs during intimate moments with his sexual partners, of which 14 were celebrities, and privately showed these to a select group of close friends.
Beginning in late January 2008, racy photographs depicting Chen and the aforementioned actresses engaged in sexual acts were circulated on the Internet. As of 12 February 2008, nine people were arrested in connection with the distribution of the photographs. The scandal made front page of local newspapers for several weeks, and has made international news.

Despite enlisting the assistance of Interpol, the Hong Kong police have not been able to stem the spread of the photographs.[4] Their crackdown has instead caused concern among over violations of the privacy and free speech rights of Internet users. The manner in which actors, their management, and the police have handled the situation has, in turn, made those arrested into heroes and martyrs for some netizens.

On 21 February, Chen hosted a press conference in Hong Kong in which he admitted being the author of most of the photographs. However, he also claimed that the photographs were distributed illegally and without his consent. In order to protect the victims of the scandal, Chen would take legal action to stop further proliferation of the photos. He publicly apologised to the actresses involved, and also announced that he would "step away indefinitely" from the Hong Kong entertainment industry.

Do have any pictures, posters, old comics, movies, etc. of any Filipino Super Hero? If your answer is yes, please do send me an email at . I need pictures and profiles of our super heroes for my next web project.

I'm currently compiling a database of Filipino Super Heroes and would soon launch the Pinoy Hero website. I'll launch the site once I finished compiling atleast 35% of the heroes listed on the International Hero website. Most of them inaccurate or incomplete.

I would greatly appreciate all your contributions. You may visit Pinoy Hero via this link: http://www.pinoyhero.com

Thank you very much roborats! :P

Rally #766354323

Captain's Log Stardate -315125.68



Don't you guys ever wonder where the hell those rallyists get their money from? I mean look, most of my friends are working their asses of for almost 12 hours a day and yet they still complain of their measly above-minimum wage.

These rallyists on the other hand seem to have all the time to waste. You'll usually see them atleast 2-3x a week from morning till midnight and yet they seem to have the luxury to join every rally possible over and over and over.

They must be really really reaaaalllyy rich no?

Really rich to conduct their protests while sipping a 200 peso StarBucks coffee.

What a sad state our country's into. I wouldn't be surprised if one day, our youths would aspire to be a rallyist rather than a professional. I'm sure they'll prefer gallivanting around the Metro with their friends instead working 8-5.

CDR-King Under Siege
Tuesday, February 05, 2008

Captain's Log Stardate -315098.21



I love CDR-King. Most of my computer stuffs came from them. From my optical mouse, card reader, memory cards, hard disk enclosures, KVM switch, massager, lights, PlayStation to PC controller ports, and blank media discs, they're all bought from CDR-King. Why? Because they're all dirt cheap compared to other stores.

Their quality is really good. Example, my laptop's optical mouse. I bought that last October 2005 and it's still working today despite being used 12 hours everyday during the whole of 2006.

I bought my first CDR-King product in 2001 (or was that 2002?). It was an unbranded CD-R and I got 25pcs for about P12 each from their outlet near Quiapo church. I believe that it was their only branch that time and the only products they carry were unbranded CD-Rs. Today, you could see their stalls almost everywhere and their product lineup expanded from CD-Rs to mp3s and other computer gadgets.

2 weeks ago, I bought a CDR-King wireless router and a wireless USB dongle for my grandfather. P1380 and P680 respectively. The router is P2120 cheaper than my Linksys WRT54G but you wouldn't notice any difference on performance and stability.



Now my favorite store is being targeted by the Optical Media Board or OMB. Why CDR-King? Why? *points to photo above*

OMB orders CD-R King to pay P1.5M for illegal importation

By Erwin Oliva
INQUIRER.net

MANILA, Philippines -- The Optical Media Board (OMB) has ordered CD-R King, one of the country’s biggest suppliers of optical media and related technology products, to pay P1.5 million in administrative penalties.

This was after the OMB, through the Bureau of Customs, found that the company was allegedly importing optical media discs without proper import permits from the agency, according to Cyrus Valenzuela, officer-in-charge of legal service division of OMB, in an interview.

[snipped]

The OMB has asked the CD-R King to produce a report of optical media discs they have brought into the country.

“They were ordered to give their inventory for the past three years The law requires them to maintain inventory of up to five years,” the government executive said.

The Bureau of Customs seized optical media discs on January 21 allegedly being imported by CD-R King, which OMB later found to be lacking proper import permits.

[snipped]

Coincidentally, OMB has recently conducted its “validation inspection” to verify a tip it received that the same company was using unlicensed software in its operations in the country.

At least 20 agents of the OMB were sent to branches of CD-R King, namely SM Fairview, Park Square, MRT Ayala Station, Starmall, SM Marilao, Trinoma, SM Megamall and SM Valenzuela.

Will it be goodbye cheap CDR-King goodies? We'll see.

Conserve Water? Yeah Right.
Sunday, February 03, 2008

Captain's Log Stardate -315092.06



My grandmother has been constantly calling Maynilad's hotline since December 2007 to report a leak just in front of our gate. It's now February 2008 and still the leak has not been repaired. As of today, my grandma has been given 3 reports numbers to follow up.



I tried sending an SMS to their text hotline and still nada. Called them again the other day to follow up but the operator I talked to said that the leak has been repaired. WTF?!

Just imagine all the water that have been wasted from this leak for the past 3 months. Oh well, you know who's to blame if we have a water shortage this coming summer.
