Windows Media Player 11 Final

Post a comment

WMP11 is now available for download. I want to try it but Im quite hesitant. It looks shiny and has a lot of "eye candy" but winamp plays my music just fine and VLC player plays all the videos other player cant. Is it really worth the upgrade? Where can I find Windows Media Player 11 reviews? Paul Thurrott doesnt have any review at the moment.

The saint of the hopeless

Post a comment

By Fr. Bel R. San Luis, SVD

A FEW years ago, when I was still assigned at St. Jude Archdiocesan Shrine in San Miguel, Manila, I met a young lady who was reviewing for the bar exam. She told me she was taking the bar and asked me to pray for her.

"I’m scared; it’s going to be my first time," she confided. She was a constant "fixture" in Masses and novenas on Thursday in our church.

* * *

She finally took the exams. When I browsed through the papers following the release of the result, there was her name! She made it.

My only "disappointment" was, after her passing, she was no longer seen around in church. I was hoping she would drop in occasionally to thank St. Jude.

"Anyway, she’ll probably come again when she prays for a good husband," I consoled myself.

Fireworks.js is a bit of Javascript that creates starburst-type explosions in a web document; in short, it's a fireworks effect someone could theoretically use on their site. And come on, who doesn't want something like that? As far as appropriateness is concerned, this effect could be compared to the dripping-blood-line, skull and fireball animated .GIF images so popular on the web in 1997. Exploding firework animations are hot, the new black, the script equivalent of the blink tag. Mmm, blink tag.

Naomi Campbell vs Manny Pacquiao Live on Las Vegas.

Post a comment

Back at home and just finished watching the movie The Prestige. Ive been waiting for this movie and I wasnt disappointed. The story is oh so new plus perfect casting, I mean Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, and Ms. Scarlett Johansson, she looks like a goddess. What more can you ask for. And they all look good in those period costumes.

Speaking of celebs and supermodels. Why are the news always about fighting lately. Its like browser wars again. Mozilla vs IE was to yesterday and Naomi vs her maid, vs her dog today. Where is the love? This girl has some serious problems. She hates the world. Hmm makes me think who will Naomi Campbell attack next week. Will it be Antonio Barerra, Manny Pacquiao or Erik Morales? But as of the moment “IT’S NUTTA versus MUCCA” Naomi Campbell vs Heather Mills fighting for some title.

India abolishes husbands' 'right' to rape wife

Post a comment

For the first time, women in India have legal protection against abuse in their own homes under a law which came into force yesterday. It is the first time Indian law has recognised marital rape, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse of a woman by her husband as crimes. India is a country where the streets are safe - but a woman is not safe inside her own home.
Finally getting rid of that old common law that is lurking out there. Welcome to the 20th century. Back then, the women are safer in the streets than in there own home. But not if your a tourist in India, you definitely want to have a local with you or you can run into some serious bad news. So right now, it's suddenly not ok to rape your wife in India.


IE team sends Mozilla a cake for Firefox 2.0 release

Post a comment

Nice gesture from the Redmond guys. Does this show that there is indeed some mutual respect going around in the browser wars?

Microsoft: "thanks for the ideas, here's a cake"
Firefox: "hey, even your cake doesnt meet the CCS standards (cascading cake style)"

Something good about Internet Explorer 7. IE7 does loads much faster than firefox because it is imbedded into windows memory. But the question is.

Did the FF team ate the cake? No! because they might catch a virus.

Best Friends GF

Post a comment

sssshhhhhhh.. secrets are things we give to others to keep for us.

I kissed my best friends girlfriend at a concert last week

Before you judge me consider this. She is a perfect 10. She looks like Ling from Ali McBeal with a d-cup.

I think they had a fight before we went out and were being cold towards each other the entire time. It was a good concert and I was in a good mood so I kept winking at them and nudging them to let loose. When my friend went for drinks she give me a kiss with tongue and licked my ear.


Firefox 2 officially released

Post a comment

Mozilla released Firefox 2 today. Im using it right now with 15+ extensions. One extension or "add ons" as it is now called that I really like is Adblock Plus. I would use FF for Adblock Plus alone. Another good thing, session saver feature is already built-in. Yeah, IE7 is already out too after millions of years, thank God armageddon has not yet dawned to annihilate all the evilness of this world and guess what IE7 charges for some of the addons!!

Too many features to mention. Download FF and see for yourself! And Surprise, Surprise! Windows Live Mail Beta runs on Firefox 2.

Firefox 2.0 recommended addons:

Adblock Plus - removes ads including some flash ads.

Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer - keep your bookmarks synchronized on any computer.


AMD recommends Core 2 Duo

Post a comment

ATI, AMD, DAAMIT however you want to call it these days is crazy enough to promote Intel PCs on its new green site. Someone just removed the direct link at where AMD endorsed the "Best Gaming PC" 2006 powered with Core 2 Duo, an Intel CPU.

ATI can even get you some special deals on the four PCs. The best catch is that three from four have the Core 2 Duo inside.
