I took the advice of Bernie and downloaded iStumbler, a wireless sniffer for the Mac OS X.
As you can see from the screen shot, the app has a much more sensitive “nose” being able to sniff hot spots way further than the built in wireless detector of the MacBook. Well, no surprise really. This is precisely the reason why iStumbler and other wireless sniffers have their demand on the virtual shelves.
Best of all, it is free!
As of 8:08 PM Monday, the Blog and Soul Movement has space for six more bloggers for the Nike event tomorrow. Nike has excitedly extended the invitation to a total of ten bloggers from five.
Hi there! Do come and join us tomorrow as we launch our partnership and new ad campaign for Nike-Team Pilipinas! =) We will not only give you all one hell of a good time but we will also be giving away limited number of Nike-Team Pilipinas dog tags for our blogger friends! =)
I used to submit poems to Poetry.com several years ago. Since then, the site has sort of redesigned itself into something more Web 2.0-ish but retained its slow loading speeds and hard to use navibar. They even used to invite me to buy a “Best of Poetry.com” book with my poems included inside, and then I realized that it was really just a marketing strategy to sell these things. All of my friends from the PH who ever contributed got that letter too. Fishy. Crafty. Potent!
Writing poetry was a hobby back in college for the sole reason that it was easier than writing a play. I guess it took me just a few minutes to write one work as compared to over 14 days to write a 30 minute play with 4 roles. From my knowledge, one page of script took up about 1 1/2 minutes of acting time.
In any case, I hope you enjoy my work. I usually don’t put titles to my poems. This would mean that the title is the first line.
Find out why after the break.
Never underestimate the power of one blog post. I surely did.
3:23 – now showing terran and protoss fight – marines and zealots clashing on the ground – mothership and battle crusers in the air – framerate seems relatively stable as more units stream in – hard to tell – about 100 units on screen right now – a few of the new protoss units just came in – nuclear launch detected warning – every unit on screen destroyed – three nukes were launched at once – then zergs rush in and spell “GG” while turning into suicidal bombs.

This has been the longest time since Blizzard released a follow up for a title. Starcraft 2 looks very much like the first one with several elements taken from Command and Conquer: Generals as well as the Warhammer 40k series. This isn’t a gaming blog and I’m not a game freak, but whenever Blizzard announces a new game, I always end up playing it, form the days of Diablo I and Warcraft I. The Starcraft line prides itself to being one of the tipping points in real time strategy gaming, as it’s been around since the late 90′s and people are STILL playing it, mostly from Korea.
I wonder how Blizzard will play their cards with this one. I’d think that their main problem would have to do more with eating up their own product (eek what do I play now? World of Warcraft of Starcraft 2??) but this question was easily put to rest with the way Blizzard has dealt with making the game look so much like the first one, that it would be very easy to gain empathy for the controls and the game environment. This game is definitely targeted for the more hard core RTS fans like .. well, the Koreans.
If you’ve played the first Starcraft, you will immediately recognize Terran, Zerg and Protoss structures as well as the new units and upgraded abilities such as the Zerglings’ ability to explode and the Zealot and abilities for close combat strikes.
MY LIFE FOR AIUR!
I’d just like to remind everyone of the details on where to meet up and how to get there. Markku and I are meeting around 11:30 AM. If you feel like joining us earlier, do contact me or Markku. I have the full details of the meet on this post.
Jerry will be modeling for us and she is planning on bringing some of her cosplay friends. Frankly I’m a little nervous about the ratio of photographers and potential models since I really don’t know how many will turn up. But nonetheless, everyone is excited to meet up and that is what counts!
From last count, we have two or three lomo wielders and about two dSLR users coming along.
After the shoot, we can all hang out and talk about the ruminations and ramifications of life.
We have a new channel editor up for a new line of products. Here I go helping spread the call for emo bloggers who know their music.
b5media is really excited to be launching a new music channel, which will cover a wide range of genres, geographic locations, bands and interests. We’re looking for writers who have a keen interest and engaging knowledge of specific topics and aspects within the music industry.
We will be looking to cover various genres and categories such as: acoustic rock, British invasion and influence, classic albums, hip hop, rap, indie rock, music industry news, online music services, the indie experience (from a band’s perspective), pop, Top-40 and the world of guitar playing. We will also be looking to cover specific bands who are newsworthy and blogworthy such as U2, the Beatles and Justin Timberlake.
You can view the call for applications here.
This was the first time I set foot into a mobile podcasting studio, though thinking about it I never really knew that you could port a recording studio by just adding water. Worth P200,000, it is supposed to be your friendly portable podcasting box for recording anywhere, anytime.
I have several guests for this podcast, and we all fit inside the 4 x 4 box. One of my guests was Pocholo Gonzales of Creativoices and we talked about the voice acting industry, dubbing TV shows, the life of a voice actor and of course, podcasting.
The show is done mostly in my local language of Filipino.
So the rumors were indeed true. Apple has upgraded their MacBook line for the third time, giving better “bang for your buck” ratio with the increased HD space and built in 802.11n wireless card.
If you bought a new MacBook last week, then I feel for you man. But if you’ve been waiting to get one, the third generation MacBooks give you Core 2 Duo stability from the second version and a 200GB maxed out HD with a slower spin speed at 4200 rpm. Of course, you can always opt for the smaller HDs. It’s really up to you. I’d be sad if the new MacBooks came with an upgraded Intel GMA graphics chip, but its still pretty much the same thing fro the previous version.
Yesterday I had come from the soft opening of mag:net Cafe at the Bonifacio High Street. I’ve been giddy as a geek about this as I’ve always enjoyed the mag:net crowd in Katipunan as its been the hangout of the most friendly and non-pretentious crowd in the city, who are, to my glee also some of the most talented in the realm of art, music and geekdom. The night was opened by Gabe Mercado and the rest of SPIT Improv Theatre and was capped with Indio I playing a few songs.
Speaking of soft openings, I’d like to direct you to something I’ve been working on for a while. I’ve gone into a hiatus mode to think about my personal advocacies and thus I’m (soft) launching The Blog and Soul Movement. Thanks to the help of several mavens in PR, events, generous bloggers and organizations in new media this would not have been possible.
The launch is so soft, I don’t have a logo yet.
