Sony Ericsson K750i

I love my new phone! It has everything I've ever wanted, and thanks to my dad and the power of the improved banking system, I can actually afford one. I'll be posting some pics I snap up from time to time, and I'm still looking at a better way of uploading them using my phone as compared to linking it up to the computer all the time to upload it.

And guess what -- interfacing the phone via USB is possible on Linux! So I actually get to carry around a diskette (or a couple dozens of those pesky little buggers) around in my phone! Sony Memory Stick Duo's aren't cheap, but I guess my extra money will go to those little life savers. Good thing about it is the 2.0 megapixel camera which takes impeccable high-resolution images.

And did I mention that I can get the photos in Linux?! I can actually access the memory card in the phone as a removable mass storage device -- and copy/paste files like on any regular device! No need for me to invest in a separate USB storage device.

And it has a built-in FM radio with fantastic surround sound earphones.

So I get a camera (2.0 megapixel which is REALLY GOOD) which is a phone (with all standard messaging and calling functions) and a multimedia (MP3, MPEG, and JPEG/GIF) mobile station which also doubles as a walkman (FM radio tuner). And it looks uber cool to boot -- my dream phone at last.

So now you can look forward to seeing more pics on the site. ;)



There's me up late at my cousin's shop. Wouldn't this be really neat if I did this everyday? ;)

Futures and Options III: Economics, Journalism, or Computer Science

I realise it's been a year since my previous post on this blog, and I've found myself having very little time to do another "brain dump" on the subject of my early choices in life. With that in mind (and as I'll be traveling again soon) I get to think a little more and reflect on a few of the things that have happened.

Much like the previous post, this one's set in high school -- where I was part of the swimming team, in a band, had been programming with Turbo Pascal, Java, and then C++ later on, and was about to make a choice that would literally change the course of my life. This one is about the choices I made, and the ones that were made for me.

Note: This is part 3 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. I would greatly appreciate your feedback and thoughts, as well as for your reading through this series!


Writing Again

It's 2019 and I just realised that I've not written on this blog for a long while. I feel a little bad about this so I'm picking it back up again. More importantly, I've limited my social media to just Twitter (I've deleted all my Facebook-related accounts) and will be writing more on the blog instead of engaging in other social media sites. If you want to reach me directly, you can also reach me through my keybase.io account for encrypted communication. If you have my phone number, you can also contact me through Signal. Quite a number of things have happened in the past few years and here's a quick update on things that I can share:

I've been working on XRay, a function call tracing system now part of the LLVM project. This took a good two and some years of my time at Google.Most recently I've moved to the Chrome Operations Team still here in Google Sydney. I can't give specifics yet of what I'll be working on, so stay tuned.There've been c…

Rant: Despair and Hopelessness

This weekend I had the chance to do a Google+ hangout with my father in the Philippines. He and I don't talk often but we do have a very good relationship. My dad is cool like that. In this hangout we talked about a few things happening in the Philippines and I've gotten the feeling that my homeland is getting ever deeper into economic disrepair, and that the politics to which I've come to be hopeless on is beyond repair. I've wanted to get something off my chest that's been bothering me for a while now, so if you would indulge me please read on.

Background

I grew up in a part of the Philippines where the land is fertile, there are thriving industries, and there's a certain sense of abundance and stability. This part of the Philippines has good schools, good employment opportunities (mostly industrial and service industries), good investment opportunities (real-estate and agricultural), and good potential for growth. This was true when I was young and this is tr…
