Election 2007

Lately I have seen a lot of politicians in television. It’s election time again and they are doing electoral campaign via the radio,television,internet and other forms such as flyers, pocket calendars and even tarpaulin.

Some have celebrity endorsers for them to be more recognized by people. Showbiz celebrities have also shown their interest in politics. For the past 2 years the presidency of Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has been questioned due to cheating. Of course, some of us also doubt if she really won the 2004 elections. That is why the Opposition is pushing for her to be impeached. Going back to Erap, who is under house arrest for plunder, this controversy has launched the so called “EDSA DOS” that resulted for him to leave Malacanang and then Vice President Gloria Arroyo was sworned to presidency.The “GARCI” issue has died since it has not prospered for further interrogation. Opposition leaders are still planning to file for impeachment against GMA. Would this really solve the problem the nation is facing?

The administration ticket on the other hand is not that strong to take the 12-seats in the Senate. They may have programs and platforms for the people and the country as well but it is again the question of execution. Are we again to expect on promises?

Showbiz personalities and even the people’s champ has decided to run for office. As you can see, Cesar Montano and Richard Gomez aiming to be lawmakers while they dont have experience yet. I am not looking down on their capacity to be Senators, but at least they should have started as councilors or mayors. Manny Pacquiao didnt think twice… may be he was influenced by other politicians who want to take advantage of his popularity…

Anyway,so much for that.. I hope that people will now think twice and choose the right ones.

Vote for the RIGHT 12!

 

Operating Systems atbp….

Karamihan sa atin ngayon ay gumagamit ng computer. Maaring ito ay sa bahay, sa opisina, sa paaralan at sa internet cafe. Ginagamit natin ang computer para mag chat, email, magbasa ng balita, at kung ano ano pa.

Karamihan sa atin ay familiar na sa Microsoft Windows. Syempre, gawa to ni Billionaire “Bill Gates”. Noong ako ay nag aaral, yun din ang gamit namin sa aming computer laboratories. Minsan, napunta ako sa Cebu at nagkita kami ng classmate ko sa High School. Nalaman ko rin na siya ay kumukuha ng kurso na Computer Engineering sa University of San Carlos. Habang kami ay nag uusap, napag alaman ko na may operating system pala na Linux.

Lumipas ang maraming taon at ngayon nasa Japan na cya at nagtatrabaho bilang isang Software Engineer na ang gamit ay Linux at Java. Ako naman ay nagtatrabaho bilang isang IT Professional sa isang Unibersidad dito sa Quezon City. Dito natuto ako ng Linux, at di hamak na ok din cyang gamitin. Sa simula ay nagkamali pa ako ng pag install sa aking computer at nabura lahat ng files ko..huh.. Nagkaroon din ako ng chance na ma compare ang functionality ng Linux at Windows. Sa iba, talagang maninibago talaga sa pag gamit ng linux. Pero kung i-explore mo lang, you will get used to it.

May magagagawa ka sa Linux na di mo magagawa sa Windows at ito ay vice versa. Sa Windows kasi, ang isang CD installer ay para lamang sa 1 or 2 computer. Samantalang sa Linux, unlimited computer ang iyong pwedeng pag gamitan ng libreng installer.Kaya nga maraming pirated CDs na Windows na binebenta sa greenhills ngayon.

Hindi lang operating systems ang merong proprietary or open source versions. Meron ng katapat ang Microsoft Office (Word,Excel and Powerpoint).  Ang Open Office ay isang open source software na may mga programs na katumbas ng Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Same functionalities and almost the same features.  Sa mga gumagamit ng MS Office,hindi na kayo mahihirapan na buksan ang files ninyo kung ang computer ay walang nakalagay na MS Office at OpenOffice ang installed.

Marami pang free software and programs na ginawa para magamit ng mga tao. Ang sabi ng iba pabagsak na ang Microsoft at OpenSource na ang magiging standard na ginagamit pagdating sa computer.

Hindi lang sa software ang malaking kumpetisyon. Maging sa computer hardware ay meron na ring katapat ang branded computers like IBM,HP,Compaq at Apple. Marami na ngayong computer hardware na ang tawag ay clone… Mas mura ang presyo kumpara sa  mga nabanggit kong branded computers. Dati ang Intel 40386 computer ay nasa 30thousand to 40,000 o mahigit pa… Ngayon may 15,000 ka, may PC ka na. Kahit papaano ay mura na rin ang computer ngayon. Ang una kong computer ay Cyrix 586. Dati mabilis na yun.. pero ngayon parang nasa putikan na cya. Compared to the latest processor na Intel Core2 Duo, talagang panis na yung processor na yun. Ngunit sa ngayon, ang bilis ng upgrade ng computers.. yung 15,000 PC mo ngayon ay luma na rin pagdating ng 2 taon. Dapat siguro, pag bumili ka yung  “High End” na. Para naman sulit yung binayad mo.

Hanggang dito nalang muna…. Marami pa akong dapat pag aralan sa Linux dahil nga laking Microsoft ako. Siguro pagdating ng panahon, gagamitin ko pa rin ang dalawang OS na ito. Bahala na si Batman…

Kayo ano mas OK sa inyo?…….

Summer is Up!

It’s already summer and you can already feel the heat of the sun. Most people would want to stay in a cool place. They would prefer a place where they can relax like in resorts (Cold spring, beach,etc..). Some would go to malls. For people who love to travel, they go to Tagaytay or Baguio to avoid the high temperature in the city….

Where do you want to go?….
