Went to the ROCKED AGE: Images of Loud Music Exhibit last Thursday at the Metropolitan Museum. I made my write-up over here, but didn’t do a critique of the show itself. What do I think? Maybe because I was spoiled in college to lots of modern and conceptual art, that its difficult for me to get into anything else but that. And thats what I THINK.

Been There: The Taste Asia Blogger Food Fest

I have kept my distance from the blogger scene, the meetups, and anything else that would remind me that I should have probably considered getting into this possible revenue-stream source, since I’ve been keeping web journals for about 6 years already, blah blah blah, but the promise of free food got me.

So, I was at the Taste Asia Blogger Food Fest last night, at the SM Mall of Asia, where 100++ bloggers converged, and were fed generously by SM Hypermart’s Taste Asia.

Adventures in Linux, Part 2: Breathing Easy Now With Feisty

If you haven’t read the first installment in my Ubuntu Feisty Fawn diary, do so, before reading on.

I spoke too soon: Windows XP still lives, but because of the partitioning mishap, I went ahead and tried to defrag that partition. Wasn’t completely successful, but I’ve went online earlier, and behavior was normal.

And NOW, I have sound on Ubuntu!

Adventures in Linux: Installing Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn

Since getting a new dual core CPU last December, I’ve only really used Windows XP. Believe me, I tried Ubuntu Linux, but when I run from the Live CD, I can’t get any sound.

So, I waited until yesterday, when the newest version, Feisty Fawn, was set to be released. Fired up the torrent client, slept, realized I didn’t have any blank CDs anymore, waited until evening when the Bulacan summer heat was a lot more tolerable, bought CDr’s, went home, burned the installer image, and went into ultra-geek mode.
