  • Today


    Here’s something wonderful I picked up: Yesterday ended last night. If you were successful, it ended last night. You can’t live on yesterday’s success. If you failed, good news, it ended last night. Today matters.

  • Perspective


    You lied to people so that they would hate me. I lied to people so that they would like you.

  • Secure Yourself


    How do you handle remote threats or malicious attacks from bad threat actors?  Use a secure, reliable gateway, such as a reputable firewall or proxy, to protect you from outside threats. Block all connections or communication from malicious sources. Ensure that all of your security solutions are updated. I’ve learned the hard way that the…

  • Purge


    When a system crashes and crashes and crashes, do a purge. Start from scratch. A BCP or DRP will come in handy if you have one.

And back then, I’d always prefer wearing rimless glasses instead of rimmed ones since most of my glass-wearing friends and I thought they looked cooler (even though they were actually thicker than the rimmed ones). And I now believe that…

    My co-workers and I have been checking out different laptop models over the net recently, and the consensus is that the Lenovo Thinkpad T61 laptop seems like an excellent choice. But I already have a Dell laptop, so it wouldn’t make sense for me to buy a new one. So, I guess it would be…

  • Holy Week 2008 – Fort Ilocandia and Pagudpud – Day 2


    The itinerary for Day 2 of our Ilocos holy week vacation was a half day swimming excursion at Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. Here are some early morning shots of Fort Ilocandia taken from my mobile phone: Here are some pictures taken while on the way to Pagudpud, which was roughly a one and a half hour’s drive from Fort Ilocandia in…
