LTO Commemorative Plate Number Coding Exemption

I still get a lot of hits when look around for MMDA Number Coding Exemptions for using special commemorative plates Are LTO commemorative plates really exempted from MMDA Number Coding? or from Makati number coding? the answer: NO, they're not exempted. You can only display the commemorative plates above your car plate number, never on top of the original plates. Even if you were promised number coding exemption by the seller of the special plates, you simply cannot avoid/go around the law by using the plates, either if you're using Ateneo, DLSU, UP, PNP, NBI, Lawyer or any other plate that cost so much (outrageous price but usually PhP2000.00/plate) unless ou want the vanity plate of the three letters and two numbers plate priced at PhP25k each, you're still under number coding

ZTE Mobile Payment Network (MPN) USB Dongle Security

I had the chance to take a look at a relatively new USB dongle to handle credit card and debit card transactions using smartphones, either Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad, iTouch) Android and probably Blackberry devices ZTE MPN has the small dongle you attach to your smartphone's earphone and uses sound waves to translate card information swiped on the card reader to sound waves. An app in the smartphone communicates with a central server for authentication and authorization. Now what makes this ZTE product good news? it's cheap and can be deployed easily, ZTE even proudly declares it certified and being used in CHina by China UnionPay (CUP) the greatest drawback? It's not really secure. No PCI PED certification, PCI PTS or the more popular FIPS 140-2 Level 2 or level 3 certification. They say they need to input the ATM PIN on the cellphone using the app but that's just where the problem lie. PIN entry must be done on certified devices. Even using their product's cryto program and key injection to manage encryption keys remotely won't cut it. their device must take the form of a new POS terminal ZTE people think just because they're using their product in China that it will be accepted in the Philippines :(

How to Fix Corrupted Inbox/Mailbox Mozilla Thunderbird

I've experienced it before and now an officemate of mine too when his mozilla thunderbird inbox was corrupted when inbox entries got all mixed up and suggested even changing his client to Lotus Notes or Microsoft Outlook (using MS Exchange)

I simply told him to shutdown thunderbird, go to the thunderbird profile folder, delete inbox.msf then restart thunderbird

Mozilla Thunderbird will then rebuild the inbox as if nothing happened

Ramgen Bautista Janelle Manahan Sex Video Scandal Download

The circus never ends. After the grisly murder of actor Ramgen Bautista allegedly by his own siblings, now here's the Ramgen Bautista Janelle Manahan Sex Video Scandal Download circulating in the Internet.

I've yet to see Ramgen Bautista Janelle Manahan Sex Video Scandal nor intend to see the Ramgen Bautista Janelle Manahan Sex Video Scandal either free direct download or bit torrent.

Respect the dead, and the right to privacy of other people. Imagine if the same happens to you, would you be angry?

Do not do unto others...
