Network Storage Foundation

Today we discussed introduction on NAS and SAN. Many companies offers such kind of technology product. Even the open source community has its own implementation like FreeNAS and NexentaStor. This will play a great part on my future jobs, so i have to deeply learn this technology.

Music is not allowed here??

yesterday we were warned by one of the trainors that listening to music while in training is not allowed eventhough we are using our headphones. I mean, music helps me to refocus on what im doing with my lab simulations instead of listening to other trainees discussion speaking on their native language in which i could not understand.

Music for the people

there will be two bands that i will meet in singapore. the first is the band of my college classmate allan. Their drummer left for another band and they are looking for someone to fillin the part. Paolo, my high school/college bandmate during the 90's rock era buzzed me and he is planning to form a group that will play regularly in The Arena, a regular joint for Filipinos in Singapore.

It turns out that i can still pursue my music career(hopefully) coz im not done yet :)

St. Paul College Pasig (SPCP) goes Microsoft

St. Paul College Pasig (SPCP) replaces its open source OS installed computers to Microsoft Vista and Office 2007. This indeed a very sad day for the Free Software Advocacy movement of the Philippines. Students and faculty complains that they use Microsoft in their home (hopefully it is legal :) ) which very much different to the open source softwares installed on their labs.

Mountain Dew, Lays, Notebook, ballpen, Laptop

Penoi Desk in India

Life is a non-stop learning. After being in the training center for 8 hours, i will still spend my night reading, taking notes and do simulation. On my desk, you will see my laptop, a bottle of Mountain Dew, Lays, notebook and my ballpen. Though its hard, i enjoy learning new things and comparing that information to the things that i already know. It feels like im back in college. Listening and completing every tasks of the program. We are almost done with our 3rd week of training.. Five weeks to go!!!!

OFW Currency Conversion

One of the biggest concern of an Overseas Filipino Worker is what is the latest Philippine Peso exchange rate. I once used Yahoo Currency converter but since Monday, Yahoo sites were blocked by our admins :(

One site that im using right now is Gocurrency.com. They even have a graph of currency trends. From US dollar to Philippine Peso, from Singapore Dollar to Philippine Peso.. Name it, you got it. :)
