A Birthday Gift Papa Will Never Forget

Let me she share to you something about my mother. And show you how selfless she is.

My mother had a lot of sacrifices for us while we were growing up. And she really made sure that we will be able to finish our studies. Even though it would be hard for her. She really fought for us so that we would grow to be responsible adults and citizens. My mom, one of the best moms in the world.

For her final act, my father's sixtieth birthday was approaching. And she promised that she would give him a very memorable present. She fullfilled that promise yesterday. Her task started around 7:30 am and was completed at around 2:30 in the afternoon.

You see her gift to my father was an unforgettable birthday party. My father will have atleast five days celebration where all the neighbors are invited and she made sure that even our relatives would come. And there will be plenty of food. But she planned a coffee party. So we expect to have coffee, milk, biscuits, and some nuts to fight the sleepiness. Because it was a five day non stop party remember? She also made sure that she was the best dressed. Indeed my mom looks beautiful in her barong and her make up is exquisite. As a testament to her boundless selflessness, the party required she give her life for it to get started.

And she gave it. My mom died, in the year of the Lord, April 8,2009 due to traumatic bleeding in the brain. Because she accidentally slipped and hit her head on the concrete floor.

It's my father's birthday today, April 9, 2009. My mother's body is with us but she is not. We miss her. But don't worry mama. Life happens in a blink of an eye. Next thing you know we will be seeing you again. And you could share with me again your smiling face and your contagious laugh.

Love, Your Son

GIMP: How to Enable Wacom Pen Tablet

If you are doing digital graphics in Gimp, whether painting or simply drawing, it is best to use a pen tablet. Wacom is a recognized brand when it comes to pen tablets. Gimp does support it but it is not enabled by default.

How to Enable Pen Tablet Support

1. Launch Gimp using your pen tablet. Don't use the mouse to launch Gimp. If you do, Gimp won't detect it.

2. In the menu click Edit>Preference.

3. On the list click "Input Devices".

4. Click "Configure Extended Input Decives". Here is where Gimp gets weird. If you started Gimp for the first time using a mouse, it will say there are no available input device. But if you launched it using the pen tablet, you will see "Wacom Tablet Pressure Stylus" and "Wacom Tablet Eraser".

5. Click the Close Button

6. Click "Save Input Device Settings Now" so that the pen tablet will still be supported when you launch Gimp next time.

LED Monitor Review: LG FLATRON E2041

My Old AOC CRT Monitor began to show signs of dying. It would occasionally black out for a few seconds. Sometimes lightning streaks  would run across the screen.

I bought that monitor way back in 2006. It served me well for 5 years. It was very durable and AOC is a good brand.

And so I had no choice but to buy myself a new monitor. I would have preferred another CRT Monitor but they were no longer available. Even the more recent LCD screens are being phased out in favor a the newer LED monitors.


(This was not my first choice but it was the next best thing available in the computer store I visited).

Contrast Ratio: 5,000,000:1

My Feedback

This monitor comes with two connectors VGA and DVI.

It comes with a CD that is supposed to contain the manual and monitor drivers. However, when you install the monitor driver contained in the CD it will alway…

Cignal Digital TV Review

For a long time we've contemplated having a cable tv connection. But the problem is we are so far from the street that regular cable companies would usually say that it is impractical because they would need a very long cable to service us and that the quality degrades as the cable gets longer.

So one day someone came along offering Satellite based TV (Cignal) and we decided to subscribe.

Cignal Digital TV


1. No more need for long cables because the service is satellite based.

2. Video quality is better than other cable providers. You are only given a few HD channel depending upon your subscription but even the normal channels look so good, you would think they are also HD.

3. Comprehensive Channel Guide that is built into your remote control. You will find a button on your remote that reads “Guide”. After you press it. It will list the current channel you are watching and you will see what program or movie will come next and the hours. You can slide the guide using yo…
