Do you remember Saver? He's the wonder dog that VP Noli De Castro has been featuring since the late 1990s on his TV show Magandang Gabi, Bayan (MGB). I woke up early today to catch Saver The Wonder Dog on TV since I haven't seem him for a while and I'm one of his biggest fan. To my shock, his trainer Mr. Jun Lazarte said that Saver died of cancer last February 2009. I still can't believe that Saver is gone. The dog I grew up watching. The dog who knew math. The dog who knew how to sign his name. The dog who knew how to mimic a cat's meow. The dog who starred in different shows and commercials. The dog who showed love to the person who rescued him from the streets. Saver... gone.
Saver isn't even my dog, but I felt that I also lost one when I heard the news this morning.

So, you've finally ban the dickhead above on your Wordpress blogs. What's next? Well if you have a Twitter account, most likely, he's already followed you. I know the feeling. It's creepy. Just look at my Twitter account, it's been spammed with Tim Cumper nonsense:
See the BLOCK link on the sidebar? Click it. Follow the instructions and that's it! You've successfully blocked that creepy dickhead on your Twitter account.
This guy has been accusing us of "pumping out propaganda" where in fact all of the bloggers who have blogged about him have been silent for more than 6 months. I guess you can't blame the guy, he's paranoid and delusional. His biggest mistake was to accuse my friend of posting comments about him on my blog, which she obviously didn't post. Imagine stalking Pepper's blog for more than 7 hours! LOL!
Have you've been visited by that sneaky dickhead above lately? Did he magically appeared on your MyBlogLog or Blog Catalog widget? If yes then congratulations! You've been stalked by the Pinoy Bloggers' #1 stalker ---TIM CUMPER! *clap* *clap* (well ummm... maybe just second to Pablo Banila). It's been what, 2 years? This dickhead is still at it --- stalking bloggers and spreading and spamming the internet with his blogs. As if he has no life and can't move on and and accept the fact that there was really no grand-scale scam. I've been ignoring this dickhead too long... too long that I don't even remember his fugly face. The great Elbert Hubbard once said, "Never explain--your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway."
I've said before, I introduced them to blogging and they really have no hands in maintaining the layout, templates, and other technical aspects of their blogs. I handle all their blogs without asking anything in return, all they do is post. That's how I love my friends, which I believe Tim Cumper has none.
Pepper and I have been friends since we're in grade school and I know her better than Tim Cumper or anyone else here. So accusing her of posting as Jen or Jenny is absof*ckinglutely insane. She does not even know who this dickhead is. Her name maybe Jennifer but ever since we've been classmates, I've never heard someone call her Jen or Jenny and she hates people who calls her Jennifer.
I don't know if I should laugh or show pity to Tim Cumper's "brilliant" discovery. Imagine, he's older than my dad but my barely 1 yr old nephew is obviously smarter than him. C'mon, there are millions of people who use the name Jen or Jenny. And her last plurk was dated January 2009. So how can she promote that comment posted this August on Plurk? Also, Pepper's too busy to blog because of her masteral studies and nursing duties... Last time I've talked to her was last July! And just recently, her dad was hospitalized due to a mild heart attack so I fail to see the point of her "analyzing" and commenting on topics about a dickhead like Tim Cumper.
Anyway, accusing my friend Pepper of a blatant lie falls directly under the "Crimes Against Honor" of the Revise Penal Code of the Philippines.

Tim, you win... you win the Paranoia and Psychosis award of 2008 and 2009! One more year and it's a grandslam! On a serious note, Pepper and Mark are both Psychology and Nursing graduates and are currently taking their Masteral studies in Nursing. You may want to consider hiring their services, you know, some sessions with psychologists.

What is ONEcall?
The first of its kind in the Philippines from Globe, ONEcall is a mobile office phone system that combines the functionality and power of a PBX phone system with the reach and flexibility of mobile phones. Companies could dramatically boost customer service and/or specific operations by routing incoming calls to the mobile phones of intended recipients. Unlike traditional phone systems that demand an upfront investment, ONEcall does not charge you or your company any hardware, software, cabling, or installation fees. Maintenance fees likewise do not exist.
Do we get direct dial numbers with ONEcall?
Your mobile phone becomes your direct dial with ONEcall. That way your customers and business partners could connect with you instantly wherever you are.
How does ONEcall work?
Each employee has a single phone, whether it’s their Globe mobile or a Globe desktop GSM phone, that is connected to an easy to use web-based switchboard providing all the features of a high end telephone system without any of the hassle. Calls go straight to employee mobiles, so your customers can reach you the first time they try.
What is the typical flow of calls using ONEcall?
1. A 3rd party calls a Globe landline number assigned to your company. 2. Caller is greeted by a customizable voice response system, or IVR. 3. Caller chooses a specific number. (e.g. 1 for Sales, 2 for Customer Service, 0 – reception) 4. Call is immediately transferred to the mobile phone of the intended recipient.
What does my business need to have to get started?
Technically, nothing. Except for a mobile phone for each employee and an Internet connection to connect to a secure web-based switchboard.
You mentioned a Globe landline component. Isn’t ONEcall supposed to be a “mobile” phone system?
For several reasons, we realize that most of your customers would still prefer to contact you on your landline (or trunk line), so we’ve included a virtual landline in the subscription package. By calling this main number assigned to your company, your customers could immediately and conveniently reach you or other personnel on your/their Globe mobile phones. Since it’s “virtual” there is no hardware/handset device (i.e. no additional cost).
All mobile phone extensions are linked to a web-based switchboard. How does this work?
After selecting and enrolling Globe mobile phones under ONEcall, these now become/operate as extensions. From day one, all incoming calls would be managed by an electronic switchboard that is accessible via the Internet. You may choose to have a receptionist manage the switchboard particularly for more complex type of operations.
When your customer calls in and decides to go to the operator/reception, the call rings the mobile phone of the receptionist. The receptionist answers and asks the caller for the person he/she wants to speak with. The receptionist could either transfer the call immediately, or place the caller on hold in order to contact the intended party (on his mobile phone) first.
Could I use multiple receptionists? How do I distribute the calls among them?
Yes. Calls to your main (landline) number are forwarded to the receptionists that are signed on to the ONEcall Switchboard and are ready to take the call. You can select the order in which the receptionist receive the calls and whether the calls should be distributed evenly among the receptionist, or you can list them in order of priority.
Does my company always have to be connected to the web-based switchboard to receive calls?
No. Once you’ve set up your configuration, default routing of incoming calls would be handled by an automated voice response system (i.e. IVR). The IVR could be adjusted anytime through a web-based control panel that could be accessed by you or your assigned company representative

ASUS today introduced the ASUS P7P55D Series motherboards with the latest processing core and a cutting-edge design to deliver ultimate overclocking, better cooling, improved power efficiency, and one of the fastest memory booting. Additionally, incorporating revolutionary Hybrid Technology, the ASUS P7P55D Series delivers intelligent performance enhancement with Hybrid Processor, Hybrid Phase, and Hybrid Operating System. It is also based on groundbreaking “Xtreme Design”, a winning design formula drawn from many years of engineering innovation, which optimizes overall system performance and reliability of PC hardware. ASUS Hybrid Processor for the Ultimate Performance Boost
With the new Hybrid Processor, users can attain superior overclocking performance from the latest processing core. The ASUS TurboV EVO acts like a second onboard microprocessor, helping every level of overclocker—from novices to hardcore enthusiasts—boost system performance. An intuitive interface lets users perform overclocking without changing the BIOS setup, knowing any technical terms, or making sure that the system’s voltage and frequency are within safe limits.
Overclocking is further simplified with tools and modes such as Auto Tuning which enables automatic overclocking that is extreme yet stable; ASUS OC Profile which offers the best overclocking profiles for different scenarios; ASUS Turbo Key which creates more physical overclocking buttons on the computer keyboard for instantaneous overclocking; and ASUS TurboV Remote* which allows users to overclock, activate the Turbo Key, or adjust the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) from a convenient side controller—while running games and applications.
Hybrid Phase for Breakthrough Performance Efficiency
Hybrid Phase combines ASUS Xtreme Phase with ASUS T.Probe phase control for maximum power efficiency, cooler system operations, and prolonged component lifespan. Xtreme Phase represents one of the best power delivery systems ever designed to enhance power efficiency, improve overclocking, and boost system stability. Moreover, the new frequency conversion technology further improves efficiency by maximizing energy use. ASUS T.Probe, the world’s first active cooling technology, detects and balances power phase loadings and temperatures in real time to lower the temperature around the active CPU. Also, to ensure longer component lifespan, only high-quality materials are used—which further reduces power loss and boosts energy efficiency.
Hybrid OS Delivers Express Gate and Windows 7 Benefits
Hybrid OS integrates Windows® and ASUS Express Gate onto the ASUS P7P55D Series for flexible user options. The P7P55D Series is driver-ready if users choose to upgrade to Windows® 7. ASUS Express Gate delivers rapid access to online applications within five seconds from boot up, while Windows® 7 is expected to improve security and speed up performance.
MemOK! Delivers Rapid Memory Rescue Right from the Motherboard
With MemOK!, users can benefit from a built-in memory rescue tool on the motherboard. MemOK! provides failsafe presets that can dramatically improve a system bootup. Users simply need to press a button to patch memory issues and get their system up and running whenever memory is installed.
Full Range of Available Models
The P7P55D Series features a comprehensive range of models including the P7P55D Deluxe with 10-channel audio and DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC support, and the P7P55D Premium with the world’s first hybrid 32-phase power delivery and the latest SATA 6Gb/s storage interface. ASUS incorporates an innovative bridge to double bandwidth to fully realize the speed available for maximum data throughput. Other available models include the P7P55D EVO, P7P55D PRO, P7P55D, and P7P55D LE.

GameOPS got a little, or should I say, a big box from ASUS Philippines last week. They've sent us an ASUS ENGTX260 Matrix for some quick test. This is the first time I've ever held a graphics card this big, and it's actually heavier than 3 of my previous ATI All-in-Wonder cards combined. This thing IS heavy.

Let's all pause for a moment as the person who brought democracy back to our country has passed away this morning.
“Former President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino has passed away. She was 76. Her son Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III confirmed that she died of cardio respiratory arrest at exactly 3:18 a.m. Saturday at the Makati Medical Center. Mrs. Aquino has been diagnosed with colon cancer early in 2008 and has been confined at the Makati Medical Center for more than a month. Mrs. Aquino, widow of Senator Benigno Aquino Jr., will be remembered as an icon of democracy, having led a military-backed popular revolt in 1986 that ousted a dictator who ruled the country for 20 years.”
