Noynoy Aquino Inaguration Bagong Pilipinas Song Lyrics MP3 Downloads

Just a day before the next president Noynoy Aquino is inaugurated, a new song composed by Ogie Alcasid and Noel Cabangon will be sang to millions of audiences in the country and around the world.

with song title Bagong Pilipinas, the new song hopes to usher in an era of hope, away from the scandal-riddled and highly unpopular presidency of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

With the collaboration of Ogie Alcasid and Noel Cabangon and musical arrangements by Ryan Cayabyab, I hope to catch a glimpse of the video performance on live tv and possibly free mpe downloads of the inauguration video or live streaming, also in torrents and file sharing networks.

Hope they offer it for free! :P


once available, I will provide links of Bagong Pilipinas lyrics, bagong Pilipinas mp3 downloads, President Noynoy Aquino inauguration video download torrents, live streaming

Globe Advisory 8888: Free Unlimited Calls and Text to Globe and TM

As a postpaid subsriber of Globe who's just got my new 128k SIM card, I received this text message from Globe Advisory 8888 today:

"Globe Advisory: Experience the power of your new SIM! You can now use your free one-day unlimited calls and texts to Globe and TM!"

we all know TM is Touch Mobile, marketed as Tatak Mindanao in Mindanao...
I just hope the Globe promo free texts and calls are permanent hehe

this is not a hoax nor a scam...I know someone from Globe :P

Another Text Spam from a Leading HMO

I received a text message again alerting me that i've won something or my SIM card was chosen for a gift

text message from 09326258426 reads:

"A leading HMO company is giving away FREE MEDICAL PRIVILEGE CARD plus a raffle entry for our KITCHEN SHOWCASE DRAW. An additional gift worth P6,800.00 will be awarded if you call NOW! 3865797 and 386022 or SUN NUMBER 09326258426, 09223338700 and look for MS. NICOLE ADVIENTO. Thank you and God Bless! (DISREGARD IFCLAIMED)"

note that this is similar to the Prudentialife text where you need to call ASAP and claim your prize so as not to forfeit your gift. But you need to bring your credit card so they can easily swipe it for instant approval of your health card or insurance policy.

warning and advice: DON'T waste your time on this one...this may not be a hoax nor scam but their methods of getting clients is forewarned

Garmin GPS Routing Algorithm: How Does it Make Decisions on Routes to Take?

I've been trying to search Google for clues on garmin routing algorithm that it uses to make decisions on routes from one point to another.

I used to be an inter-network routing engineer, mostly using BGP and OSPF, to find the optimum path packets should take to reach the destination. GPS routing is no different, I know there are certain parameters to tweak in order to affect the route calculations Garmin GPS (like my Garmin Nuvi 1300) make.

This is not exhaustive but I know these parameters and certain tags matter but I still don't know which ones take precedence over the other in routing decisions:

1. Total distance (probably the single most influential in logic calculations)
2. Highway classification (toll roads, trunk, primary, seconday, tertiary, residential, service road et al)
3. Number of lanes
4. Maximum speed

GPS settings such as Ecoroute (fastest or most fuel efficient route) also count on this one for sometimes, the routes suggested by a GPS unit differs from Garmin Mapsource.

Anyone who can leave a definitive study on Garmin routing algorithm please leave a comment.

Fastest Mobile Internet: Smart Bro, Globe Tattoo, Sun Cellular Brodband Wireless?

Do you believe everything you see on tv? when SmartBro made commercials claiming 9 out of ten speed tests show it's faster than Globe Tattoo? And you believed that commercial crap?

As if Internet speed tests are really objective and also lacks various other parameters. For me, it all boils down to location, location, location

In Paete, Laguna, the fastest USB mobile broadband Internet there is Globe Tattoo. Smart Bro has very weak and intermittent signal. No Sun cellular 3G there the last time I went home

At home in QC and also in my Makati office, Sun Cellular reigns supreme...I can get the full 2 Mbps downloads except at certain times like 5pm like but still my Globe Tattoo and my officemate's Smart Bro can't match

If you're in doubt or want to leave a comment, please be objective. I will post actual speed test results here

The iPod cannot be Synced. An unknown Error occured (-53)

My iPod Video 30GB got ressurected recetly with the upgrading of my Toyota Vios 1.5G's head unit (car stereo) with iPod control

I got to update my Mp3 song collections and therefore my iPod by I keep on getting this error: "The iPod cannot be Synced. An unknown Error occured (-53)" everytime I try to sync the iPod even with latest version of Apple iTunes.

Fortunately, my iPod does sync even with the error whenever I update my iTunes library. The error is still there but it doesn't matter if i have the solution to the pesky error problem.

Pedro Romualdo and Prospero Nograles' Legacy: The Non-passing of the Freedom of Information Bill

It's such a very frustrating news that after 24 years and several Houses of Congresesses had come and go, a basic right enshrined in the Constitution, The Freedom of Information Act was not passed by the House of Representatives

I was waiting closely the Inquirer.Net breaking news when the sad news of it's non-passing was displayed. As usual, The House of Representathieves wasn't able to get a quorum due to always absent "honorable" congressmen in a junket somewhere.

However, as it was tradition to even pass important priority bills even without a quorum, it was a motion to a roll call made by Camiguin Representative Pedro Romualdo that ultimately killed the bill.

Note the Senate already approved the bill and called on the House of Representathieves to do the same, but this horrorable congressman from Camiguin spoiled it all in the name of the rule to have a quorum first.

Such is the the legacy of Camiguin Representative Pedro Romualdo and also of House Speaker Prospero Nograles: the non-passing of the Freedom of Information Act.

Let's just leave it to the next congress, this time with the help of president-elect Noynoy Aquino, to pass the bill promoting transparency in all government transactions always laden with SOP, graft, kickbacks and under the table deals.

If only it's legal to just terminate all absent congressmen and the one who filed the motion for a roll call....

Define Jejemon: Not So Cool Text Speak Leads to Miseducation

Definition of Jejemon: People using weird and mangled text speak from Jeje that young people think is cool but actiually leads them to ignorance of the English language and poor spelling

So many text messages you receive from Jejemons just to let the word know they're cool and yet they actually don't get it that by using such crude text speak and mangled spellings, they're actually letting their brains die and wither or not lead them to the correct path of learning...

So if you're a Jejemon, kick out the habit and start learning English seriously. I've seen serious people admit using text speak made them idiots in English that even their bosses noticed wrong grammar/spellings at official business correspondeces and memos...much more if you're a Jejemon, you won't get far.
