Game: NBA 2K9
I created an online league over at 2K Sports network for NBA 2K9. I’m currently looking for active NBA 2K9 players who are willing to religiously finish each game and finish the season (no matter what their win-loss standings are). Preferebly Filipinos who are located in the Philippines, or at least living in the same time zone (GMT+8) so we’ll find a common time for playing the games.
I joined several leagues in the past, and so far either they haven’t started at all or the players appear to be not interested to start a single game. In this view, I limited the number of players to 8, with 10 games maximum for each team.
Video Games Through the Years. From 1990 to 2008, this is a comprehensive list (with screenshots) of the video games since the early 90’s. I still can remember the Family Com days.
It’s not really going through memory lane for me. We didn’t have the luxury to own one.
Upgraded, and am loving the backend. It’s just so awesome and sleek, the fresh look and everything.
I have always been excited with this release.
I did the upgrade from WordPress 2.6.5 to WordPress 2.7 using the WordPress Autumatic Upgrade plugin. For those who are worried to do the same, so far it worked for me. Just make sure to backup everything first before doing anything.
Theme and Plugin Compatibility
So far, I don’t see any compatibility issues with my current set of plugins. The pages are working fine, including the backend (admin area). That’s so far as I try visiting each of them. If anyone notice any error or bug in any pages after this upgrade, please do let me know.
WordPress 2.7 Full Features
WordPress 2.7 is reach in new exciting features. One of my favorites was paged comments and comment threads. I still have to tweak the theme in order to fully exploit these features.
Check out the full feature list of the release over at the codex.
First and foremost, I’m in the Philippines. Obviously, our standard TV uses and able to play NTSC formats only for videos and video games.
Before I purchased my Sony Playstation3, I was worried that I might not be able to play NBA 2K9 in my standard TV at home. Inquiring with the local retailers at the stores only brought disappointments, as they were expressing with certainty that NBA 2K9 will only work for HDTV.
For one thing, I don’t want to entertain the idea of buying a new TV for the PS3. I was looking desperately on the web about any experience playing the game on a standard TV, but to no avail.
There are instances, in office settings, that employees are allowed to have email but not internet access. In this case, webinmail will be extremely useful to bypass this prohibition in accessing “public” websites. By public, it means web pages that are readily available without requiring an account and login just like friendster and facebook.
To request a web page by email, send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org and the url in the subject line. By sending a message to the same email address and leaving a word or phrase in the subject line (not the url), webinmail will return a rediff search result for such term/word/phrase. To use google, change the subject line to “google:query” replacing query with your query keyword.
One more good thing about this service is that the web page that’s sent to your inbox, the links in the page are already converted to “mailto:” to facilitate more convenience if you want follow up web page requests.

Oftentimes, you find yourself needing to keep, access and update files from workstations at the office as well as from a computer back home. These files can be work related, a password keeper, or maybe media files like photos you want to share with officemates or friends.
One solution is to bring with you a portable device like a usb flash drive to dump the files into for further access and edit. However, bringing a flash drive around can prove to be a hassle with the inconvenience of plugging and safely removing the device from the computer. Unless you hang this thing around your neck all the time (i.e., if you find it a good fashion accessory), you’ll oftentimes find yourself looking around for it and racking your brains trying to remember where you last left it, in your pocket, in your bag, in your cabinet, or maybe the trash can.
Thankfully, now there’s dropbox.
UPDATE: I DON’T MAKE COPIES OF THIS GAME. I’M NOT AUTHORIZED AND I DON’T HAVE THE DVD WITH ME ANYMORE. GET YOURSELF A COPY FROM YOUR FAVORITE BOOTLEG STORES LIKE IN MAKATI SQUARE OR IN QUIAPO. IF YOU ARE TOO LAZY TO GET YOUR ASS TO YOUR FAVORITE BOOTLEG STORE, THEN BETTER GET LOST!
NBA 2K9 is now available for PC. EA’s NBA Live 09 isn’t anymore.
I’m not sure about the marketing strategies of these two competing NBA video game products.
But I’m quite surprised with the move of the NBA Live Series, the game that I’ve learned to love, and I’ve learned to hate as well.
Say hello to Gmail voice and video chat.
Gtalk, which is a desktop application for chatting and voice chat (as differentiated to Gmail chat, which is a built in chat function within Gmail), already used to offer voice chat.
This time, Gmail chat offers voice chat plus the VIDEO CHAT.
Now, Gmail chat surely is a great (and maybe even better) alternative to YM.
UPDATE: These items are already SOLD!
