Ang Hari ng Benavides
The King of Benavides
Benavides, Binondo
October 2014

I saw him blankly facing the wall in front of him, with an expressionless face and tired eyes. He was probably daydreaming or recalling happier times. He saw me pointing the camera at him and made the effort of straightening himself up a little and gave me that smile. Photo taken, he stuck out his hand to me. I gave him a small token and said, “Salamat po sa ngiti.” [Thank you for the smile.]

I didn’t see him there the last time I passed by.

Gizmodo just listed the top 25 passwords of 2014 (listed below). If any of your passwords is listed there then that should tell you that you’ve been lazy and that you seriously should change your password yesterday! Some services already impose stronger passwords by requiring you to use a minimum number of characters and use a combination of numbers and upper and lower case letters. But sometimes even that is not enough. I suggest using phrases or whole sentences with spaces and in another language other than English.

The top 25 passwords and their relative positions compared to the previous year are:

1. 123456 (Unchanged)
2. password (Unchanged)
3. 12345 (Up 17)
4. 12345678 (Down 1)
5. qwerty (Down 1)
6. 123456789 (Unchanged)
7. 1234 (Up 9)
8. baseball (New)
9. dragon (New)
10. football (New)
11. 1234567 (Down 4)
12. monkey (Up 5)
13. letmein (Up 1)
14. abc123 (Down 9)
15. 111111 (Down 8)
16.mustang (New)
17. access (New)
18. shadow (Unchanged)
19. master (New)
20. michael (New)
21. superman (New)
22. 696969 (New)
23. 123123 (Down 12)
24. batman (New)
25. trustno1 (Down 1)

Ubuntu constantly updates the linux kernel which is good. you get the latest security patches and software updates which makes a very secure system. A minor side effect is that the old kernels are not automatically removed from the system which, if left unchecked, can quickly fill up the /boot partition. The unused kernels can be removed using a gui like Synaptic:

sudo apt-get install synaptic

or Ubuntu Tweak:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

but you have to install these applications first.

I prefer to use the terminal.

Check the kernel version that’s currently in use. Do not delete this kernel else your ass is cooked:

uname -r

List all the kernels in the system:

dpkg --list | grep linux-image

From thee list generated above determine the kernel you want to remove from system and then issue the following command:

sudo apt-get purge linux-image-x.x.x.x-generic

replacing the x’s with the kernel version you want to delete.

When you’re done issue:

sudo update-grub2

to update the boot configuration file (grub.cfg).

There had been over 13,000 login attempts to this blog since 24 october 2014. Some stupid a*hole has been busy. Or its just a stupid bot. So if you have a site based on WordPress, install a security plugin to take care of your failed logins and overall site security. I currently use All In One WP Security & Firewall and so far I’m happy with it.

And, a ‘hello’ to our friends from the Ukraine, China and the UK (surprising, actually). I’m watching you now. ^_^

2014 has been a profoundly painful and difficult year for me although it did start off with an inspiration that seemingly came out of nowhere:

right past midnight
i look for the feel of her hand
warm and soft among the sheets
i am falling in love again

The words came to me a little past midnight on January 3. I wrote it down with ink on paper and gave it to her before breakfast. She was ‘kilig’ the whole weekend.

January also arrived with small reminders of our passing age. The hot flashes came — what we thought were a sign of pre-menopause. It was inconvenient but manageable. We kept a wary eye on it but we generally ignored it.

February came with more inspiration. It was a courtship:

skin on skin
your warmth mixing with mine
i slip under a blanket of sleep
content.

But then in the same month small nodes started to appear around her neck and jaw and she started losing weight for no apparent reason which silently worried us as well.

With March came Robin’s high school graduation which, unfortunately, we couldn’t attend because March also brought the tests, probes, a biopsy and more tests.

By April it had a name — Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma — cancer of the lymph tissue. The shadow finally has a name.

The first chemotherapy was in May. It was also the month when I made a promise to my mom and then a few weeks after she passed away. I kept that promise, mom.

Two chemotherapy cycles accompanied June. The medicines were taking their toll but by this time almost all of the lymph nodes have disappeared. Things are finally looking up.

A complication popped up in July — a very small lesion in her brain caused by a small brain tumor was discovered. The next 22 days after the discovery was allocated for radiation therapy to kill the tumor. The next chemo cycle had to wait.

It was almost the end of August when we were able to continue with the chemotherapy and by that time the lymph nodes in her abdominal area had grown back. It also took almost two weeks before they could give the chemo meds because her electrolyte levels had to be normalized. We were able to go home around mid-September.

A week after coming home, she developed a fever. A blood test was done and the numbers didn’t look good. We were ordered back to the hospital. Tests indicated pneumonia and a fungal infection and she was given a battery of antibiotics to help her already low immune system combat it. After two weeks of antibiotics the pneumonia was gone and the infection was finally drying up. But it also took it tremendous toll on her. She passed away in her sleep early morning of the 2nd of October.

The support of friends and family helped us survive the rest of the year. I truly do not know how we could have managed without them. We are eternally grateful.

It was a beautiful, beautiful life, babe. Thank you for shining more than half of yours on mine. I shall ever miss you until the next lifetime.
