Getting FLEXible

Bored. That's the best way to describe my feelings right now. I've had a chat with my "sensei" this morning and he told me that he noticed my lack of enthusiasm. I agree with him, it's been sometime since I've felt very anthusiastic...

I need a new machine...

It's so hard to learn new technologies in such a low-end machine. I have 512 MB of RAM in my laptop of 1.8Ghz clock speed, 32MB of which is for the on-board video card. It uses about 350MB upon startup running Avas antivirus and who knows what else...

Don't think of unfinished projects as a failure

I was on my way to a PinoyJUG seminar and I was waiting for a friend in Eastwood, Libis. While waiting for him, I decided to visit the bookstore and look for some Computer-related books. Being unable to find one, I found myself browsing through management...

I'm getting better with M$ Excel

It's a really funny realization. As I mature in my career I'm also getting better with M$ Excel. I'm telling myself I couldn't have known that feature/technique if I didn't see that from my officemate! It's so hilarious. I should...
