its just a confirmation that, whether you’re using linux or windows, the more memory you have installed the better.
yup. he’s a gift from our next door neighbor. their dog had eight puppies about six months ago and they gave us one as soon as he was able to eat solids. he’s actually for my mom in san pablo because they heard that our dog passed away recently and the neighbors wanted to, sort of, replace our last one. my mom wasn’t ready to have a dog yet so its been staying with us ever since.
robin named him ‘odie‘ — from the comic strip. our odie is a golden labrador that’s pretending to be an askal. at least he looks like one. 😉 he’s around 7 months old in the picture but he’s already bigger than our previous dog. judging from the size of his paws, he’s going to get even bigger.
we’ve been bringing him to the philippine society for the prevention of cruelty to animals (pspca) along recto for his shots. we walk to the place — that’s roughly about two kilometers back and forth. its been always hard going to pspca with us sort of prodding and pulling the dog along but when its time to go back home he’s the one who leads the way pulling me like someone’s life depended on it. and the surprising thing is that he knows the way. intelligent dog.
he’s also friendly with our two cats — omni and doggie (yes, we have a cat named ‘doggie‘) . they used to be about the same size six months ago. now, odie is about three to four times bigger. he’s generally careful when he plays with them but he occassionally oversteps his bounds and gets a set of sharp claws scratching him then he backs off.
we are seriously considering having him trained as a search and rescue dog. we just don’t know where to go yet.
cherry was on her way to baler, aurora. they took the mountain route.
the clouds was really low (or they were really just high in the mountains) and a second before pressing the shutter the kids just popped up.
this was taken at bay inn in baler, aurora. the inn is facing the pacific. strong waves too.
a local radio station (99.5rt) played this over the weekend. we had a great laugh…

i like flickr. i really do. its a great service and if i can get enough disposable income per year i’ll certainly opt to go pro. if. but until then i have to “improvise” a little and “make do” with the show-only-200-recent-photos limit. don’t get me wrong. in a free account, there is no limit to the number of photos that you can upload. the rub is you can only see the 200 most recent photos. you just don’t see listed photos older than the 200 most recent. upgrading to a pro account will enable you to see all your photos.
i have some pretty nice pictures that went into what they call “flickr limbo” and i have a handful of recent photos that doesn’t need to be there. so i had to download and delete some of those recent photos just to get access to the older ones.
to prevent my other photos from going into flick limbo, i decided to save the links to some of my older flickr photos in blog posts here (i’ll tag them flickr). they may not be visible at flickr but i would still have links to them. 😉
i was looking at what robin was playing online and it looked pretty interesting — nice graphics, good sound — so i wanted to try it out for myself. i go over miniclip.com and clicked on age of speed and i got this:
does anyone know of a replacement for shockwave player?
its really one of my pet peeves — work that’s half done. i rarely get to fall into that pit but when i do i’d hate myself for it for weeks.
css or cascading stylesheets is a file or a group of files that governs how a web page, and to a larger extent, the whole website is formatted. i have designed and help design websites for years now and cascading stylesheets are an essential part of the design of a modern website. without it the design is only half useful. or half useless. the designer should only be paid half of the fee.
so this leaves me cramming and “making do” which i terribly, terribly dislike.
i need to hit something… 👿
