Aeropage Sync for Airtable is a new WordPress plugin that will sync your Airtable data to your WordPress posts, including custom fields. This proves to be more useful than the previous Air WP Sync and AirPress.

Unfortunately, I can’t seem to make NextCloud work on this Racknered cPanel Shared Hosting. I guess I’ll just stick to a NextCloud VPS install via Docker.
Black Friday 2022 Shopping Haul
I know there’s no Black Friday in the Philippines, but that doesn’t mean we can’t participate in the Black Friday sale, especially when they’re about online services like web hosting and VPS.
So here’s what I checked out during the Black Friday of 2022:
Racknerd cPanel 100GB hosting
Shared – 100 GB – $15.89 per YEAR!
Great for businesses and busier websites.
100 GB SSD Disk Space
5 TB Monthly Transfer (FREE Double the bandwidth, just comment your order#)
Host 5 Domains
Free SSL Certificates
cPanel Control Panel
Softaculous Script Installer
LiteSpeed Web Server
Free Offsite Daily Backups (JetBackup)
MailChannels Hybrid – Premium Email Delivery

RamNode 2GB OpenVZ VPS
Use code: 2LET22
2GB OpenVZ SVZS – Any region – $18/yr (includes 1 IPv4, /64 IPv6)
2 vCores (fair usage)
The problem with the RamNode OpenVZ VPS is I can’t run Docker on it. So I guess it’ll serve as my test box for all bare metal Linux server related apps. Now, I just hope I still have enough money for Cyber Monday.
The aggressive Linode marketing campaign
While listening to your favorite tech podcasts or watching your favorite tech youtube channels, you’ll most likely not miss that Linode ad or sponsor. Linode has been aggressively doing marketing recently. I wonder if it’s the consequence of the Akamai acquisition? More puzzling is how will they recoup those marketing expenses?
Linode, together with some same-tier Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting providers like Vultr and DigitalOcean, brag about their cheap VPS offerings. But they’re only cheap when compared to the big boys like Google Cloud, Amazon AWS, and Microsoft Azure. When you hang around LowEndTalk like I do, you’ll get a better grasp of the real definition of cheap VPS hosting, especially now that Black Friday deals are just around the corner.
My two favorite VPS hosting providers so far are Racknerd and Greencloud VPS.
How Citibank let down clients with Entrego
A few months ago, my Citibank credit card was up for renewal. Citibank sent off my replacement card without delay via Entrego.
First Replacement Card
On the morning of the supposed delivery day, I got a text message from Entrego that my parcel was on its way. The day came and went, I got another text in the evening saying the messenger failed to deliver and they’ll attempt re-delivery the next day or so. The next day, same thing happened. After three failed delivery attempts, the parcel went back to sender.
I had to contact Citibank, and they blocked that card and dispatched a replacement to my replacement card. Continue reading
I can’t seem to find the answer to this question, so I’m leaving it here. If you’re syncing your Joplin notes to a webdav server, do the directories in the webdav server really need to be set with 777 permission?
The requirement for SIM card registration is now a law. Will this be the end of text scams and spams? Couldn’t wait to find out.
He’s disrespected pretty much everybody in the chess world, calling other players idiots and stuff. And also beating the great Magnus… Everybody knows that Hans is probably the most disrespectful teenager in chess.
Security Now discusses that Cloudflare’s Turnstile could be a better alternative to Google’s Captcha. I agree, responding to Google’s Captcha have been frustrating user experience recently. I hope banks know this and look at this alternative.
When NTC becomes the text spammer
The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) is an attached agency of the Department of Information and Communications Technology responsible for the supervision, adjudication and control over all telecommunications services and television and radio networks throughout the Philippines.
The NTC is supposed to regulate the telecommunication companies including the use of SMS in the Philippines. Recently it ordered telcos to block clickable links in text messages.
But looking at my Messages app, it appears they are the ones spamming recently instead:
I know, a lot of Filipinos need reminding about these scams repeatedly. But NTC shouldn’t stop at just sending these reminders, and thus spamming us in the process. They need to do their job and stop these spammers from the beginning.
