Busy Week

I just wrote up my To-Do list and calendar, and it’s going to be a very, very busy week. (Oh, by the way: Lollardy. Lollardy, Lollardy, Lollardy.)

EDSA 1986

Update, Feb 2006: For my thoughts and links on the events of EDSA’s 20th year, please go to EDSA 1986+20 and EDSA 1986 History. Yesterday was a nonworking holiday, to celebrate the 16th Anniversary of the famous People Power Revolution at EDSA, which ousted dictator Ferdinand Marcos from power in 1986. I’m quite glad that […]

On Baby Worship

Jim’s post on “Baby Worship” brings to mind a quote I read from Chuck Swindoll’s Growing Deep in the Christian Life: “Every baby starts life as a little savage. He wants what he wants when he wants it. His bottle, his mother’s attention, his playmate’s toy, his uncle’s watch. Deny these and he seethes with […]

free RSS parser?

Anyone know where I can download a free, RSS-XML parser in Perl/CGI or PHP? I’m a Scripting Dummy, so minimum setup fuss is a must. The reason I ask this is because I dream of having my own personal RSS gateway, just like BrownTrout’s. One cannot go wrong linking up a Bach fan. If you’re […]

Pore Strips

Check this out: microscopic closeups of a freshly used nose-strip, extracted blackheads and all. Speaking of which, it’s a sad fact that pore strips are very hard to find in Manila these days. I’ve looked around, and most personal care shops no longer carry any brand of nose strips; Pond’s, Biore, or otherwise. If you’re […]

XHTML and Validation

Better Living with XHTML. The web is in a time of transition (when is it ever not?), what with standards and XML seizing the spotlight. We’re seeing a web design revolution of sorts, and the designer’s world in 2002 is going to be a very different one from the days of the late-90’s Netscape 4.x […]

Chinook Crash

Happy Birthday Mom! After worship service this morning, I spent the day at lunch with my family at home (home in Greenhills, I mean, not my apartment in the South), plus uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, and nephews on Dad’s side of the clan. I’ve been a bit out of touch with current events here in […]

Lobster Art and Comics

Speaking of comics, I think Lobster Man here may have read too many comics. (Both links via Jim.)

Comics for Sale

I collected comics for a few years, from 1992 to 1995, and built up quite a collection of X-Men, Adam Warlock, Books of Magic, and Usagi Yojimbo. Everything went into mylar sheets in a large cardboard box. Now I’m selling them. The whole box. There’s a lot of stuff in there, including the New Series […]

Sucat Towing Syndicate 2

I forgot to post the number for you Parañaque dwellers out there to call in case you’re victimized by the Sucat Towing Syndicate: call 826 1603 or 826 8244, and ask for Mr. Abad. Often this won’t stop the tow truck drivers from impounding your vehicle, but it might deter them if you show that […]
