Who’s the Real Blue Stickman?

Posted: January 29th, 2009 | No Comments »

I have another contest here in my blog. But this time, it’s unique. It’s not like any other blog contest in the internet wherein you will link me and that’s one point for you, or rank for a certain keyword in Google, Yahoo and MSN and when you rank 1st, you are the winner, or write about this and that… then if you have the best entry you win, or be the last to comment then you’ll get a prize etc., etc.. This contest is distinct from other blog contests that you encountered in the blog sphere!

Ok so much for the chit chats, let’s go to the mechanics of this awesome contest! Yay!
This will be a competition of wits and intelligence. All you need to do is answer the very simple puzzle below. There are 8 blue stickmans in the picture, but there’s one from the 8 who has a […]

Some Nagging WordPress Issues I’ll Help You Solve

Posted: January 25th, 2009 | No Comments »

The funny thing about WordPress is the way it behaves differently across my different webhosts – Dreamhost, Media Temple and A Small Orange.
My food blog is hosted on MT. Before I manually upgraded it to WordPress 2.7, it was languishing in the old 2.3 version. Back then when 2.3 was the “in thing” it was already having issues with WP’s AJAX features. But I learned to live with it. Yesterday, while I was making a new post about an Indian Restaurant, the autosave feature was acting like its usual crazy self. It displays an error message “You do not have permission to do that”. Ok, so who does? Like before, I’m not allowed to make new categories. I was forced to create them in phphmyadmin. I don’t care for WP’s AJAX capabilities other than autosave. Otherwise I can totally […]

Daily Top 10 Posts Version 0.6 Etc.

Posted: January 24th, 2009 | No Comments »

I updated Daily Top 10 Posts to version 0.6. It includes only a couple of minor fixes, albeit aesthetic ones. I added the ability to set how many top posts will appear on the sidebar and dashboard. Does that mean I have to rename the plugin to Daily Top Posts? You need to open up the plugin file to edit the variables. By version 0.8 or 0.9 you’ll be able to do it directly from your admin panel. I promise. In addition to that, I tweaked the dashboard widget to look more streamlined with new admin CSS.
Download version 0.6 here or update it automatically through your plugin panel. For more about Daily Top 10 Posts, go here.

Air and Simple Gifts MP3 Download

Posted: January 20th, 2009 | No Comments »

I’m happy to share an MP3 of John Williams’ beautiful arrangement, “Air and Simple Gifts”, played moments before Barack Hussein Obama took his oath as the 44th President of the United States. The musical ensemble is nothing to scoff at — the legendary cellist Yo-yo Ma, Israeli-American Itzhak Perlman on the violin, Venezuelan-American pianist Gabriela Montero and African-American musician Anthony McGill on the clarinet — put together a masterpiece that will long be remembered throughout history.
Download it here.

Update: I just learned it was pre-recorded. They decided to record the song two days before because they predicted the weather would be too cold for the instruments to play in tune. Still awesome though, right?

How to Find a Lost Phone Inside a Very Small Room?

Posted: January 12th, 2009 | No Comments »

I keep on asking that stupid question to myself. I really can’t find my phone inside this very small room. I already checked every inch of the floor, every corner, up, down, left, right, north, south, east, and west. Inside my cabinet, inside my desktop, inside my laptop, inside my pillows, inside my brain, inside everything, but to no avail. This happened to me for the third time but this one was worst, because 3 days already passed and still, I can’t find my cellphone.

I know that it’s in here but I can’t find it. I know it’s right in front of me, but I can’t see it. What I need to do now is be patient. Maybe someone supernatural inside this room stole it and is playing around with me. Or maybe, I’m just over reacting. Aw… I don’t know what to say next. I think I need to […]

The Late Year-End Post and The Chronicles of The Blue Stickman

Posted: January 7th, 2009 | No Comments »

Ang daming “the” no? Hehe. 2008 was really an unforgettable year to me and maybe to almost all of us. To continue what I have started last 2006 and 2007, I will write what I have achieved in the year that was. I will not and cannot include all, but here are some of the most unforgettable things that happened to my life and my blog in the year 2008:

1. I earned my first million (in PHP) from my online earnings, spent all of it and saved only 3,000 pesos in my bank account. That’s why I really hate myself, I should learn to save. Grrrrrr. I also received my first check from Adbrite, first payment via Paypal from AW Surveys, Kontera, and Chitika in the year 2008!
2. Joined a mini-SEO contest (this is the second SEO contest that I joined, but technically this is the first one. Because I […]
