UPDATE: Day 1065: What's Up Google?

Official Google Blog: An update from the Project 10^100 team

Go to:

Finally an Update:
Marissa Mayer, VP of Search Products & User Experience at Google, has announced that Google will be making some announcements regarding Project 10100 this fall. In an interview with Digg yesterday, Mayer said "We'll be making some announcements coming up this fall to close the process, get the public vote going, and ultimately decide on the winning idea or ideas."
Well of course, you're talking about 10,000,000 USD here. What were they expecting?

One problem I can see is that if they have to verify each and every idea it would literally take them a bazillion years to test. Most of these ideas are after all - inventions. I would assume that in order for their tests to possess a certain form of validity - they would have to use the Scientific Method - which is easier said than done since there are more than…

Day 1065: July 22, 2009 My "Cloudar Eclipse" Pictures

What is a Cloudar Eclipse?

It's an eclipse caused by clouds blocking the sun. Causing partial darkness, utter confusion, and emotional dismay to those who are waiting for the real eclipse.

To get these exclusive "Cloudar Eclipse" photos, I climbed our water tank which is slightly higher than our house.

Okai, thanks, Bai!

Day 1061: Bayanihan Linux 5 Screenshots

Here's my way of promoting Bayanihan Linux to the Filipino people as well as the International Community. Yes, folks, we Filipinos have our own Linux distribution as well.

Right of the bat, I'm going to admit that I'm not really that well versed in evaluating a Linux distribution. I simply like it or not.

At the most, I can give it a score of 10 (highest) or 1 (lowest) without any explanation or justification for giving such a score. So if you really want an in-depth analysis, I suggest that you try it out for yourself to see. 

This Linux distribution is based on Debian, runs KDE 3.5 has the easiest installation routine I've ever encountered ever and has a pretty awesome wallpaper.

Since I am running Bayanihan Linux 5 on Virtualbox OSE I can't really test its actual performance. If there's such a thing as a Virtual Performance then I'll disclose that for what it's worth.

Okay, so here we go:

Day 1059: Twitter Private Info Hacked...

What happens if the people who are supposed to protect your data lose data themselves to hackers?

It seems like we are about to see as news spread out that Twitter employees themselves got careless with their own data and lost important documents such as executive meeting notes, partner agreements, financial projections to the meal preferences, calendars, phone logs of various Twitter employees.

So, are you still thinking about tweeting about your travel plans, or business decisions to the world? Now would be a good time to think again.

Techcrunch pretty much sums it up on how they're going to treat this breached confidential information with this quoted statement:

News Is What Somebody Somewhere Wants To Suppress; All the Rest Is Advertising.

Day 1055: Bayanihan Linux 5 is Out - Pambansang Linux?

After months and months of guessing and head scratching by yours truly, I finally got word that the Philippines' Pambansang Linux Distribution is out...since... April 20, 2009. 

Seriously, guys, you really need to hire a public relations firm or a web seo outfit. It's like you are always operating in Stealth Mode, like you are in, in, in government. Oh, wait...

Come on guys, act like Linux geeks!  Get a twitter account or something. Oh well, maybe they have an NDA or something.

Their new website got Vicky Belo'd. Pretty.

Here's their newest Press Release:

Hello everyone! Kamusta!

It's been a few months since the latest release of Bayanihan (Kalumbata) and by now some of the software we've bundled in the initial release (Revision0) have already been updated upstream. So here we go -- it's time we update the installer to include these newer versions by default with the release of Ba…
