I've finally achieved forgetting most of what I knew in computing. I think I'm ready to take on Linux now and re-learn everything from the ground up. First, I need a decent desktop. As in my previous post Im still deciding what to do.

Choice, choices, choices.

It's hard when you want to do several things all at the same time.

Work has been a bitch. I haven't seen anyone for almost a month. I miss conversations (Intellectual, Interesting, Intriguing), I miss the people I haven't seen in a while (Guys, when are you coming back to this side of the world?)

I miss a lot of things. Sheesh!

Sand, Drugs, and Alcohol

Last year's plans for the whole SILO team seems finalized.

I'm shelling out Php700 for the trip. The truth is I feel wary that one is going to enjoy the trip. I'm not exactly sure why...It could be the pessimist in me or im just not in the mood.

Well, let's hope and perhaps if we play our cards right it might turn to something fun.

I Bought A New iPod!

For the past 2 weeks, it's been work, eat, sleep. It's a vicious cycle that one has to live with. In a sudden twitch against this redundant pattern I've woven myself into, I bought myself a new iPod. It's a 4GB gadget with a silver aluminum skin, that ideally is supposed to be scratch-resistant. For the 2 weeks that I've brought it along during normal commutes to and fro into various destinations - no scratches yet!

The earphones are designed a bit differently. They fit the ears better than the earphones I originally had with the iPod shuffle which is a bit large for the holes of my very petite ears.

Since this is a new purchase, I played the smart card and also threw in a crystal case and a silicon armband. The armband is not what I have hoped for but it does it's job fairly well. The crystal case is your plain vanilla crystal case with a notch at the back for inserting a velcro strap. I've been meaning to look for one but it somehow keeps slipping my mind and I end up with using the crystal case inserted in my pocket.

Once or twice I've used the armband but I always fear that the LCD screen will break since there is no real protection for the LCD part of the silicon armband.

Then again this works for me for the mean time. Maybe next time, a portable dock will be my next purchase with kick ass speakers that has an alarm clock....Yep, that'll work.

Meantime the shuffle has been passed off to my younger sister. Apparently, those hints of getting me to buy her an iPod too eventually paid off.

Such a vicious cycle indeed.

It's A New Year!

After surviving 2006, 'Tis a new year again.

I've been looking forward to this new year. Why you may ask?


The word is change.

This year i will be transforming myself from the old [c] hicken to a new fowl!

I am sure that the first quarter will be hard. Change is always hard but you have to survive the changes and of course end up with a new crack on the shell of old. I don't hope for anything drastic, just something new and woderful.

Happy new year!
