Tonight my band is gonna be the front act for a very famous band in Philippines, Parokya ni Edgar. They'll be here at the Arena Clarke Quay Singapore and I get to be on stage with them!! Wohooo!!!!!
A lot of things have been happening lately with me. Hehehehe! That's my excuse for not having this site updated. Well, me and my band are now performing on a weekly basis for this variety show which will be shown in Philippines and Singapore. I've been practicing lately my violin skills. I just received a news yesterday that our pianist is about to leave the band so... I'm again back to playing the piano and violin. It's been about 4 - 5 years since I played the piano pretty well. Me and my rusty fingers will have to get back in shape before this coming Saturday's gig. You don't want to mess up in front of the TV Hehehe! Anyways, Only 2 days left before my favorite day of the year! Sad... no moola... Loser!! Hahaha!
I just created a tool called the Hash Calculator which basically computes for the hash values of messages. These hash messages are used for encryption. Hope you like it!
Practiced last night with the band. I tried using the electric violin I borrowed from a friend of mine. The violin sounded well though I had a very hard time hearing the music coming out from it because the speakers were too far away from me and placed overhead. When the entire band starts playing all at once, I get lost most of the time. I rely mostly on hearing the notes coming out from my instrument. Playing an acoustic violin on the other hand helps me hear what I’m playing even though the speakers are far from me. Properly placing a mic for it would be a problem though. Ordinary mics don’t capture the vibration of the violin’s body. Condenser mics are used instead which doesn’t come cheap.
On the lighter side though, I got a glimpse of the band member’s profiles. I mean, I got to know some of them in an acquaintance way. Some of them were from support centers. Others were from the medical allied studies. Some were from the distribution/logistics of PSPs! Some were from the same field as I am which is IT (Information Technology). So… that’s what IT really stands for!! Some are working as instructors/trainors in gyms, while others are from medical allied studies then shifted to an engineering type of work (drafting).
Funny though when you listen to them perform their part, a different story is being unfolded before you. Some perform wildly. Others sing while others sing and dance. Some suddenly drops confidence while others improve on what they do. Others just do it like no one’s watching. I don’t know about some but for me, listening and watching every performer translate a song on their own version always leaves me an overwhelming feeling of wonder or admiration especially when the performer breathes/feels what they’re doing.
No band practice this weekend. I need to practice on my own this weekend lah! Hahaha!
Belated CNY and Valentine's to all. Just transferred hosting! The entire site is running in good performance now. Transferring to a new hosting provider is like having a bad breakup. :p
I just joined a band here at Singapore and well, we're gonna jam at a bar this coming 24th. It's a combination of Filipino and Singaporean musicians. I'll be playing the strings which reminds me that I need to practice!! Wohooo!!!
On the night before Valentines, I took the train ride home. I never took a seat even though there was a vacant seat just 4 feet away from me. A lady instead occupied it. Then after a minute or two, she just suddenly stood up and started heading for another vacant seat. I quickly wondered why she suddenly transferred seat. So I look back at her seatmates and tried determining what's wrong with her seatmates. Looking at them in a not-so-obvious-manner... The one on the right seems normal. The one on the left... well... my not-so-obvious-manner became oh-so-obvious-can't-hide-that-smile-anymore suddenly! I saw a key turning and started to float on it's own. Wahahahahaha!!! The one on the left was a street magician!!!! I couldn't help but smile and just couldn't believe my eyes!! I knew I had to move closer to get a very good view. He switched from one magic to another. I was like a kid opening his first PSP! To make the story short, the entire 20 minute ride was awesome!!
Cool 3D Desktop you could try on your machine. It's time to get a life!!
Watch The Third & The Seventh in full screen! I didn't believe it at first. That guy has got some talent.
Hola!! My account has been recently suspended due to suspected phishing activities. My site was quarantined for investigation. Anyway, everything went well after explaining the purpose of my site, which is the opposite of phishing. I had to disable also the active links in the url expander because I think it's also one of the triggers why my site was blocked. I still have to figure out a way to make the links active yet safe at the same time for you and me.
Shrinktheweb.com is also down recently. Too bad, their service was great though.
I'm thinking of going back to making music again.... I need to get a good set of condenser mics and a digital mixer.
I found one!! It tries to emulate a tibia.com login page!! :p
I just happen to see this article about the URL Expander in marketcalls.in!! Thanks guys!! :p
I also included the sharethis button for easier bookmarking. the gree blends well with the site!!
For those of you who cannot wait for the API, I already have the direct link results which means you could just scrape the data. Is it ok for me? No problem here. An attribution is welcome though! :p
Wohooo!!! Just got my google adsense approved!!! $$$ I just might become filthy stinking rich one day (well 2 out of 3 ain't bad). Hahahahaha!! :p
Yup, counting the hours before 2010. Sigh, space without stars... Nweiz, got my self a present. A new JVC audio headphone. They cost a lot but they sound really good!! It's like having THX and Dolby on your left and right ears!
Here's a cute picture to match the movie Alvin and The Chippettes. :p
I've been fixing the algorithm for the URL Expander and it's getting better everyday, or when I get the chance to tweak it though. Hehe! I hope someday people will benefit from it. Thanks for the help especially the devs from China, US, Russia, England, Australia, etc for pointing out the best methods. The world is getting smaller as we speak. Happy new year!!
The first reason I went here. Happy birthday Dad! :p
I miss home... :p
Wohoo! Some extended holiday for me. Might watch Avatar with friends tonight. Hmmm... That means I get to fix this site today. I also get to practice on some pieces. I might even do for rock and roll what "The Sound of Music" did for hills. Cool. :p
Might practice it tonight on violin or just sleep. Whichever comes first.... Insan (cousin) Junior got a job here!! He will be practicing his med skills come first quarter 2010. :p
It can now detect porn, phishing, and malware sites. :p Try it now!
Hahaha! I thought this happens only in cartoons. I wonder if lions could also do this.
Removed some links in the main menu in the tools section. I'm not sure if I'm looking forward for Christmas here. Oh well, make do with what I have. :p
The very first woman in my life. She was absolutely gorgeous in every way. Me and my dad never stopped falling in love with her. We miss her dearly...
No updates for this weekend. Very tired from other stuff. Dozing off.... Zzzzz.
Happy moments galore. Updating db manually then cron it. Sleep all day perhaps or watch a muvee! :p
Lucky me, I always get to see the guys behind the Assassin's Creed game every single working day.
SB malware is alive and kicking(backend)! I'll implement this one over the weekend and implement some slight changes to my orange/green a.k.a. pumpkin site. I need a life... :p
Etude No. 3 Moderato has also been conquered by yours truly. Starting to spend more time on my "viology" class. Hmmm.... I wonder if I should make a new string quartet video. :p
Finally added a link to my friends' site.
Here's something to watch, a documentary on money.
Tried getting an API for both malware and blacklist but failed on the malware fetch. I've reached the memory limit. Sorry neighboring websites for that sudden spike! Haha! Too bad for me. Nweiz, once I get past the first wave then succeeding updates should be lower. Work around in progress.
I'll be placing a link exchange page for my friends who also have their own websites. :p
Finally integrated thumbnail support for the URL Expander.
Just got home at 3am after watching 2012. This is one scary ending for humanity and makes me realize that I only have 2 years time for me to complete this site. It also makes me want to go peacefully like my pet cat did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the people in the movie.
Rise and shine. Got the flag thing going for the currency converter. Lunch time at 1pm.
Hello world! Having small sneezes this morning. Got my lappy formatted.
Watched a movie called Shinjuku Incident (Japanese movie with China on the early 90s). That reminds me, I haven't been to a cinema for quite a while.
Loser alert! Tried fixing AMF. Tried fixing some more here and there.
Here's my new ranking at Alexa.
Gotta go now, going to be late! :p
I'm gonna format my lappy sometime this afternoon. But before I do that, I'll be sending my buddy the design that I have in mind and also fix the currency converter, currency information, and flag images.
Nweiz, here's something cool you could check out:
