Dialup at Home

Here's something new: after having fun with WiFi and broadband at the offices, I am now giving this new notebook a try on dialup. Oh, the new notebook is an Acer TravelMate 3280 -- and I'm absolutely having fun with it. Not really too much of a head turner, but it has a dual core Intel processor, and I'm having a ball with it. Now, I just got myself a prepaid internet card (and it's pretty cheap, considering that it's worth P100 for 20 hours) and this provider (ISP Bonanza) doesn't allow me to directly send email using SMTP -- but it does allow me to access my mail via IMAP, so that should be enough. And now, I'm having fun watching Discovery Travel & Living, in my air conditioned living room, and blogging on Dialup. Ah, the life... CHill!

Starbucks Anyone?

I just wanted to try it, and it sure is fun blogging from Starbucks PeopleSupport center here in Makati. It really is something else, this WiFi thing, I never thought it would be as liberating as this. Looking at the people chit-chatting, and sipping my Venti Mocha Frapuccino, blogging and then wondering where have I been the past few years when this craze started happening? Now t's just really... different. Computing in the middle of a crowd, without having to worry about wires and stuff... I need to get used to this. :) CHill!
