Maintaining a whole perfect sense of computer and/or internet privacy and security requires a big investment and a whole lot of effort. But with ingenuity, the complications of setting-up one is not a big deal. See below photos to know what I mean...

No one would see what you're typing

No one would see what you're surfing

Best of all, the ultimate security....

Okay, now that's not what real ingenuity is... Now if you want to fight or be a part in fighting CyberCrimes, there's a fun run coming in December 10, 2011 at the Quirino Grandstand, Manila. Read on and comment for a chance to get a free race kit for the 500K Punches vs. CyberCrimes.

The following just made it to my inbox which came from a good friend - Mr5uplado - who can relate most to this. Read on and please do care to explain to me if you were able to understand it.
We’ ve been friends for a long time ago. We come from the same alma mother. Actually, our paths crossed one time on another. But it’s only now that I gave her a second look. I realized that beauty is in the eyes. The pulpbits of my heart went fast, really fast. Cute pala siya. And then, she came over with me. She said, “I hope you don’t mine. Can I get your number?” Nag-worry ako. What if she doesn’t give it back? She explained naman na it’s so we could keep intact daw. Sabi ko, connect me if i’m wrong but are you asking me ouch? Nabigla siya. Sagot niya, The! Aba! Parang siya pa ang galit! Persona ingrata!!! Ang kapal niya! I cried buckles of tears.

Na-guilty yata siya. Sabi niya, isipin mo na lang na this is a blessing in the sky. Irregardless daw of her feelings, we’ll go ouch na rin. Now, we’re so in love. Mute and epidemic na ang past. Thanks God we swallowed our fried. Kasi, I’m 33 na and I’m running our time. After 2 weeks, I plopped the question. “Will you marriage me?” She's in a state of shocked. Kasi mantakin mo, when it rains, it’s four! This is true good to be true. So siyempre, She said yes. Love is a many splendor.

Pero nung inaayos ko na ang aming kasal, everything swell to pieces. Nag-di-dinner kami noon nang biglang sa harap ng aming table, may lalakeng humirit ng, “Well, well, well. Look do we have here.” What the fuss! The nerd ng lalakeng yon! He said they were still on. So I told him, whatever is that, cut me some slacks! I didn’t want this to get our hand kaya I had to sip it in the bud. He accused me of steeling her girlfriend. Ats if! I don’t want to portrait the role of the other man. Gosh, tell me to the marines! I told him, “please, mine your own business!” Who would believe him anyway?

Dahil it’s not my problem anymore but his problem anymore, tumigil na rin siya ng panggugulo. Everything is coming up daisies. I’m so happy. Even my girlfriend said liketwice. She’s so supportive. Sabi niya, “Look at is this way. He’s our of our lives.” Kaya advise ko sa inyo - take the risk. You can never can tell. Just burn the bridge when you get there. Life is shorts. If you make a mistake, we’ll just pray for the internal and external repose of your soul. I second emotion.

The following conversations below are real-life scenario from the office. These were e-mail conversations between the Programmer (who also administers their own department's domain) and the Company's System-wide Administrator (who manages all the DHCP servers).

The Problem: Trouble with IP Address conflicts within the Programmer's department, and an unknown machine that's been obtaining an already assigned IP Address from the Programmer's DHCP.

Pa-request po hostnames of the following, we can’t resolve our IP Address conflicts without knowing where these conflicts are:
Or better yet, please give us advice how we can permanently fix this. Do we need to restart the DHCP server? Clear the IP Address logs and re-assign new sets of IP Address to all our workstations?
Reply from SysAd:
Kindly give us all of your host names and respective mac addresses. This will resolve everything and don’t configure any static IP addresses without our knowledge.
Gawin bang mas kumplikado?

Another set of e-mail for another almost related scenario:

Requesting again for your assistance to locate the machine with hostname BMC_DHCP having MAC_ADDRESSES of __:__:__:__:__:A7 (and previously also __:__:__:__:__:8D) and make it stop from obtaining our IP Addresses since we don’t even recognize that machine.
Reply from SysAd:
Can you identify the BMC_DHCP and where it is located? We don’t have any server like this in our custody.
Kailangan ibalik yung ihinihinging tulong?

Down Memory Lane

by Running Atom | 9:46 AM in , | comments (1)

TO ALL PINOY KIDS WHO WERE BORN IN THE 50's, 60's, 70's and early 80's!
some of us survived being born to mothers who did not have an OB-Gyne, smoked and/or drank San Miguel Beer or Syoktong, while they carried us. The manghihilot was the cheapest way to deliver babies. Dinala ka ba ng nanay mo sa pediatrician for DPT?  While pregnant, they took cold or cough medicine, cortal or medicol, ate isaw, and didn't worry about diabetes or cervical cancer.

Then after all that trauma, our baby cribs were made of hard wood covered with lead-based paints, pati na yung walker (
andador) natin, matigas na kahoy or rattan at wala pang gulong.

We had no soft cushy cribs that play music, no disposable diapers (lampin lang),
( noon cloth or rattan duyan lang tied to the posts or ceiling, babies fell asleep sa sobrang hilo ) and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, no kneepads, sometimes wala pang preno yung bisikleta.
Take-out food was limited to Ongpin's pansit or Aling Toyangs pre-cooked ulam in kalderos. No pizza shops,  McDonalds, KFC, Subway, Jollibee; and, coffee was just kape hinde ga-mahal as in Starbucks.

As children, we would ride in jeepneys
libre, pag kandong, hot un-airconditioned buses with wooden seats (yung JD bus na pula), or cars with no airconditioning & no seat belts (ngayon lahat may aircon na)

Riding on the back of a carabao on a breezy summer day was considered a treat.
(ngayon hindi na nakakakita ng kalabaw ang mga bata)  Did you make your own saranggola and pasted bubog on the strings?

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle purchased from 711
(minsan straight from the faucet or poso) walang 711 noon, sari-sari store ni Mang Akong to buy sarsi, suntan, RC cola or choco-vim.  
We shared one soft drink bottle with four of our friends, and NO ONE actually died from this
or contracted hepatitis.

We ate
rice with star margarine, pampatangkad daw, took raw eggs straight from the shell, and drank softdrinks with real sugar in it (hindi diet coke), but we weren't sick or overweight kasi nga.......


We would leave home in the morning and play all day, and get back when the streetlights came on.
Sarap mag patintero, tumbang preso, habulan at taguan. Natatandaan mo ba PIKO, step-no-step- yes, trumpo, garter & mala-ahas sa haba na goma? Kung naulan naman, jackstones, pick-up sticks or sungka, bahay-bahayan, tinda-tindahan, titser-teacher- an or swimming sa baha or kangkungan.
No one was able to reach us all day (di uso ang cellphone, walang beepers). And yes, we were O.K..
 Sipol lang ni tatay ang meron noon!

We would spend hours building our wooden trolleys
(yung bearing ang gulong) or plywood slides out of scraps and then ride down the street, only to find out we forgot the brakes! After hitting the sidewalk or falling into a canal (sewage channel) a few times, we learned to solve the problem ourselves with our bare & dirty hands.  
did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 100 channels on cable, no DVD movies, no surround stereo, no IPOD's, no cellphones, no computers, no Internet, no chat rooms, and no Friendsters, Facebook. MSN etc. ......... ...WE HAD REAL FRIENDS and we went outside to actually talk and play with them! TV viewing was a treat, kilala mo ba si Popeye, Gumby, Betty Boop & followed the bouncing ball in Melody Tunes? That was karaoke then, LOL!
We climbed walls and trees
(to get aratiles and catch salagubang & tutubi - tied them on the neck with a string), fell out of trees, got cut or "bukol", broke bones and teeth and there were no stupid lawsuits from these accidents. The only rubbing we get is from our friends with the words..masakit ba ? pero pag galit yung kalaro mo,,,,ang sasabihin sa iyo..beh buti nga !
We played marbles (jolens) in the dirt , washed our hands just a little and ate dirty ice cream, fish balls & inihaw na baga. We were not afraid of getting sick or germs in our stomachs.

We had to live with homemade guns, gawa sa kahoy, tinali ng rubberband , sumpit , tirador at kung ano ano pa na puedeng makasakitan, pero masaya pa rin ang lahat.
We made up games with sticks (syatong), and cans (tumbang preso)  and although we were told they were dangerous, wala naman tayong binulag o napatay... paminsan minsan may nabubukulan lang.
We walked a lot, rode bikes, or took tricycles to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them to jump out the window!

Mini basketball teams
had tryouts and not everyone made to the team. Those who didn't pass had to learn to deal with the disappointment. Wala iyang mga childhood depression at damaged self esteem ek-ek na yan. Ang pikon, talo.
Ang magulang ay nandoon lang para tingnan kung ayos lang ang mga bata, hindi para makialam at makipag-away sa ibang parents.

That generation of ours
has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers, creative thinkers and successful professionals ever! They are the CEO's, Engineers, Doctors and Military Generals of today.
The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had failure, success, and responsibility. We learned from our mistakes the hard way.

You might want to share this with others who've had the luck to grow up as real kids. We were lucky indeed.

P.S. - The big letters are because your eyes may not be able to read this if they were typed any
smaller (at your age)
