Been trying for days to get in my account but to no avail. Darn yahoo is blocking any emails coming from the site (i guess a lot of spams or maybe a violation has been done using that domain, reason for it to be listed on the blocked domains).

Sigh... I have to create a new account using hotmail.

The Wayback Machine

Say hello to old favorite websites that you thought went down permanently.

A friend showed me this website and I immediately typed in URL(s) of long lost websites I can think of... Whoa!!!

This is really cool! Even old websites I created from way back 1999 was there. Really cool. Can't really express how happy I am, since now I can really prove that these sites that I developed before (and is now extinct as I say) used to exist.

Thanks to my friend Steven. :)

Country of Fraud

I came upon a website that has lots of DNS tools. A very handy site when testing your server.

I tried the tools and was happy with the results it was giving, until I tested the "City from IP" tool that uses IP to find city and location. I was curious whether the results would give me my location so I used my static IP and got this result:

Country: Philippines
City: Unknown
Country Code: PH
Merchant Note: Country may have high rate of fraud [1]
Currency: PHP [Philippines Pesos]
Private IP? No
Known Proxy? No

What??? high rate of fraud? Darn! and to think I live in this country. I cannot believe what I saw so I tested another one of the tools the site have, "IP Information". Got this result:
IP address:
Reverse DNS:
Reverse DNS authenticity: [Could be forged: hostname does not exist]
ASN: 9299
ASN Name: IPG-AS-AP (Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company)IP range connectivity: 1
Registrar (per ASN): APNIC
Country (per IP registrar): PH [Philippines]
Country Currency: PHP [Philippines Pesos]
Country IP Range: to
Country fraud profile: High
City (per outside source): Unknown
Private (internal) IP? NoIP address registrar:
Known Proxy? No
Link for WHOIS:

DANG! Fraud profile on all time "High". Saddening, very saddening to see that the country I live in is considered a place where fraud is rampant.

Tell me, how about the US??? I bet not...

To leave, or not to leave

Another Saturday morning, another meeting. Woke up early, and feeling ok, but not really refreshed. I am stressed out. Should I go to the meeting or not? Sigh...

If only I could hide my head under a pillow and wish everything will just take care of itself. Augh!

Snow White and the 7 dwarves. All that the 7 dwarves do is work, work, work. Sigh :~(

In my own version, there is actually an 8th dwarf, me. Darn, I feel like a zombie now. Time to unwind...

Sleep Deprived

Ouch!!! my head is aching today when I woke up. I guess my work is taking it's toll on my body. Augh! I need to get more sleep I think. I feel my head is about to split in two. Signing off now... ta-ta...

My Virtual World

Welcome to the virtual world. A place I where I spend almost 80% of my time everyday. This is where I choose to work, to play, communicate, to get news, learn and entertain myself. A world where I can be anyone I chose, perform impossible feats, develop new ideas, and be equal with corporate giants.

It is also a place where I can easily be kicked out with just one pull of the power cord or if my bills are not payed. Sigh... Welcome to the real world!
