A Letter to the Computer Addict

The other day I received a letter from my two girls. “Dear Computer Addict”, it began.

The letter, written in 3 pages torn out of a small notebook and folded into a roughly done envelop, read:

Calling All WordPress Lovers!

*UPDATE, 08/13/08: The list of WordCamp sponsors has been updated. See below.*

It was love at first sight – the moment I moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress. Setting up my blog from scratch took a lot of contemplative time and difficult reading… Yeah, I did the Codex, man. But I loved every bit of the challenge! Once I got past that, almost everything was a breeze. I realized that one doesn’t have to be a techno-freak to figure out WordPress, after all! (or, am I speaking too soon???)

There’s still a lot to learn though – lots of mysterious codes to figure out, tips and tricks to be explored. I’m aware that I haven’t maximized my WP experience yet.

So when I heard that the very first WordCamp in Southeast Asia is happening in the Philippines, I decided I wasn’t going to miss it for ze world!

WordCamp Philippines 2008 is a venue for WP users to learn how-tos and be updated on new developments. Continue reading Calling All WordPress Lovers!

Tagged: All About Me

Daiz and Len tagged me with this question:

If you are to leave an important memory, what would that be?

I think the iMoM blog is the most important memory I can leave to my children and their future generations. All my most cherished memories, thoughts, experiences and what-nots are here. I imagine them browsing through the archives and laughing at VGood‘s funnies, or teasing iPatch about her braces, or seeing how pilyo MagNate was as a baby. Blogging is a great way of leaving a legacy – something for future generations to remember the past by.

I was tagged by Mitch some time ago to share bits and pieces of me by answering some Qs.

RULES:
1. Add your blog/s to the list. Feel free to add all your other blogs. It’s okey if you only post this questions in one blog as long as you answer them.
2. Get back to ME {refers to YEN} and I’ll add your blogs to the master list here! Yup, another linking thingy but this one has 15 questions and you get to enjoy answering them too!
3. Tag as many friends online you know. But you don’t need to be tagged in order to join.

QUESTIONS:

1. When you buy a greetings card, are the words or the picture more important to you? Words – I like to give thoughtful greeting cards. But I don’t buy paper greeting cards anymore. I just send out e-cards from Yahoo Greetings or Hallmark.com. Save the trees!

2. What’s your favorite kind of cake? Continue reading Tagged: All About Me

Upgrading My PC’s Memory

Although it is still in perfect working condition, my 4-year old PC is a senior citizen by technology standards!

I realized this a few months ago when my PC broke down. I had a wonderful technician (Thanks, Annamanila!) fix it. But he suggested that I upgrade my PC memory to a bigger one, so that it can easily accommodate all my blogging paraphernalia, games, and gazzillions of photos.

So I started making calls to almost all shops with “PC” on their names. Unfortunately, I learned that my motherboard version (I forgot the geeky term they used) is on the brink of extinction. Therefore, my memory upgrade won’t be that easy.

After several calls and hearing the same thing over and over, I gave up. Maybe I will just wait for the next conk out. Hopefully, by then, I’d have saved enough to buy me a new laptop. For now, I am content with my senior-citizen PC.

(Mental note to self: Back-up your files! Back-up your files!)

Weekly Question # 1

Julie at Greenbucks started a new meme called “Weekly Questions“. It’s simple – we answer the question she asks each week.

WQ # 1 is: Would you know if your husband/partner is reading your blog?

Answer:

Yes, I know if he does or does not. And I’m pretty sure he doesn’t. In this blog, he is known as technohub – the one who is oh so technologically-challenged. It took him a while to finally decide he needed an email account (duh!). Lucky for him because I do all his emails… well, I used to. Now he has a Yahoo mail, a Gmail, and DSL connection in his office too! Recently he has been mulling over the idea of buying a laptop. But, as always, the voice of reason triumphed and, instead, he bought a memory stick. (According to him, to do remote office work, all he really needed was a memory stick and Google Documents. Then he can go into any internet shop to access his files. Smart eh? Nagtitipid lang, hehe.)

So. Where was I? Oh yeah… Does husband read my blog? No, I don’t think he does. Or else, I couldn’t rant on and on about him. 😛 Despite all the technological advances happening in his life, he really has not gotten into web-surfing, let alone blog-reading. He is too busy for such things, his mind too full for much else but work. 🙁 If I have a certain blog post I want him to read, I would have to go to that page, seat him beside me, and walk him through the post. He doesn’t have much patience for such… err… inanities (as I imagine he must think my blogging is).
