Crappy Tech Support...

Uhh.. i heard rumors but i never thought i'd experienced it first hand!
PLDT mydsl's tech support is clueless, dumb, and down right stupid.

Tsk, i was calling to ask for new DNS servers because the one they gave me was old and i can't even ping it.

uhh, well obviously they didn't help.

Although i was using OpenDNS. i was looking for alternatives.

Anyways if you're on PLDT myDSL and you're browsing is staggering. you might wana try OpenDNS.

Here are their DNS Servers:

What a day...

Whew, it was an exhausting day today for me...

I just don't get it. I mean i had to wake up early so I'd make a good impression and when i got there, they told me to come back after 1:00 pm.

Uhh, it's like my 4th time to come back since i first applied for the job. They kept saying that i need to practice my enunciation and i tend to talk fast. Well i was nervous, it's a natural reaction sheesh cut me some slack.

For like a month i kept practing, and i guess it paid off.
I was sooo losing hope of getting hired that i just read it sarcastically and at the same time i was nervous.
To my suprise tho they liked it and said "Ok, you're hired."

And i just beamed lol.

Well, i'll be starting next month or sooner. i hope soon because i really need a new job. a good paying one that is.

Read, read, read...

Lately I've been listening to Flobots. They are an alternative rock/hip hop group that has been rocking the mic since 2000.

The song that i really like from them is "Handlebars".
It's about the idea that we have so much incredible potential as human beings to be destructive or to be creative.

MC johnny 5(a.k.a. Jamie Laurie) said "it's tragic to me that the appetite for military innovation is endless, but when it comes to taking on a project like ending world hunger, it's seen as outlandish. It's not treated with the same seriousness." "...at the same time, I knew there were people at that moment who were being bombed by our own country. And I thought that was incredibly powerful." It is the contrast between these "little moments of creativity, these bursts of innovation," and the way these ideas are put to use "to oppress and destroy people".

Here's the video :P
