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!

Technohub’s New Gadget: Konka E260

Konka-what? Konka-who???

I’ve seen Konka TVs… but Konka Phones?

On his latest trip to Shanghai two weeks ago, Technohub bought a dual-SIM touch-screen phone – the Konka E260.

Hub has 3 phones – one for Smart, one for SunCellular, and another for his PLDT Landline Plus. It really gets quite confusing inside his gadget bag when one of the 3 starts ringing! (Don’t ask what happens when all three start ringing altogether!) So that was his primary concern when he wentlooking for a mobile phone. He wanted a dual-SIM phone.

I’m Back and Alive Again

Yup, my PC had another bout of conking. This after I blogged last week on backing up my files. Aaargh! One fine morning a few days ago, I turn on my PC and it doesn’t get past this blue screen that says: unmountable_boot_volume.

Thanks to a very dear friend’s office tech-guy, Mr. Dr. B (salamat, doc!), my PC has been revived back to life. He suggested, though, that I back up my files in CDs, or flash disks, or even at 4shared.com. Ah, it’s a shame that I even blogged about it, but was not fast enough to be ready for this conk-out. Oh well… Such is life…

The hub’s office has been badly affected by the most recent typhoon. Outside, flood waters reached thigh levels! Inside the office, a few office supplies were damaged. Thanks to the staff’s foresight (and hub’s prodding), all stock items were safely brought to higher levels.

The technohub is stranded somewhere in China! Due to the ravaging of a storm (that was called Frank while in the Philippines), flights from Chongqing to Hong Kong (his connecting port) have been canceled since yesterday. I don’t mind how many times the airline will have to cancel the flight, as long as they fly when it’s definitely, surely safe.

Hang in there, hub. I’ll see you tomorrow, I hope! We miss you. (The kids definitely do – Nate misses your morning-ritual drive around the village; VGood misses hugging your soft tummy to sleep; and Patch the allowance that comes from your pocket. hehe).

Back-up Your Files

Like most people in this almost-paperless age, I keep most of my files in my computer. A huge chunk of my computer memory goes to keeping my most treasured memories a.k.a. zillions of digital photo albums. When I get hold of important documents, I always make a digital copy and store it in my computer just in case the paper copy is stolen or lost.

But what happens when your PC conks, goes haywire, dies out on you? It’s very important to create back-ups. These could be in the form of CD-ROMs, or external computer memory gadgets such as USB flash drives and memory cards. Heed the advise, and you won’t regret it if and when your PC crashes.
