oh lunar!

"oh luna, why did you leave me alone? i need you badly. oh luna, please stay! i cannot live my life without you. you are my soul, my body, my life. luna, i love you. please dont leave me."
- enchantress

just a few minutes ago, i am staring head sky above the starry night. the moon has changed its color, it becam brightly yellow red. gosh! well, i knew at once what's happening. we are having a lunar eclipse. weeew! ehe!



according to encyclopedia.com

"A lunar eclipse occurs whenever the Moon passes through some portion of the Earth's shadow. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle. Hence, the Moon is always full during a lunar eclipse. The type and length of an eclipse depend upon the Moon's location relative to its orbital nodes. The most recent total lunar eclipse was on 3 and 4 March 2007. The next one will occur on 28 August 2007."

well, based on the definition, i think it is clear that it is a lunar eclipse.

hmmm.. is there any superstitious beliefs about lunar eclipse or when lunar eclipse happen?

here are some theories and stories:

  1. The Chaldæans were careful observers of eclipses, and Berosus believed that when the moon was obscured she turned to us her dark side.
  2. Anaximenes said that her mouth was stopped. Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, and the Mathematicians said that she fell into conjunction with the bright sun.
  3. Anaxagoras of Clazomenæ (born B.C. 499) was the first to explain the eclipse of the moon as caused by the shadow of the earth cast by the sun. But he was as one born out of due time. We are all familiar with the use made by students of unfulfilled prophecyof every extraordinary occurrence in nature, such as the sudden appearance of a comet, an earthquake, an eclipse, etc.
  4. We know how mysteriously they interpret those simple passages in the Bible about the sun being darkened and the moon being turned into blood. If they were not wilfully blind, such facts as are established by the following quotations would open their eyes to the errors in their exegesis.
  5. the lunar eclipse is the most terrible phenomena to heathens was an eclipse of the sun or moon, which they associated with a destruction of all things and the end of the world.
  6. The Indian belief is that a serpent eats up the sun and moon when they arc eclipsed, or a demon devours them.
  7. To this day the Hindoos consider that a giant lays hold of the luminaries and tries to swallow them. The Chinese call the solar eclipse zhishi (solis devoratio), the lunar yueshi (lunæ devoratio), and ascribe them both to the machinations of a dragon. Nearly all the populations of Northern Asia hold the same opinion.
  8. The Finns of Europe, the Lithuanians, and the Moors in Africa, have a similar belief." Flammarion says: "Among the ancient nations people used to come to the assistance of the moon, by making a confused noise with all kinds of instruments, when it was eclipsed.
  9. In America the idea is that the sun and moon are tired when they are eclipsed. But the more refined Greeks believed for a long time that the moon was bewitched, and that the magicians made it descend from heaven to put into the herbs a certain maleficent froth
there are many more..

but i dont believe in such superstitions about lunar eclipses.

the insane horseman

from celebacy of my youth. i have never been so fraud to everyone or to anyone. i have just been timid to everything or to anything. but why would i accept myself for something that can cause my everything to become an anything. this might have any problem to my speech communication, isn't it? propensities of it, yet destructible, have been shared and sheered by everyone in everything. what am i supposed to do? am i blind? am i deaf? am i mute? or am i just insane? oh yes, insanity is my middle name i guess. though i'm perfectly designed by my gene origins, i still have imperfections. why is that? is there something depriving to someone? or maybe to everyone? oh no.. am i really going crazy? or is this just a test of faith? faith to whom? to GOD? hmmm .. who's GOD? i have never heard of him. is he an action star? oh maybe a comedianne? no? so who is he? is he a girl? are they friends with mother nature? or maybe he's just a simple person with a simple life. why am i talking about GOD? is he really that important to be talked about? propensities of this universe have never been changed since the big bang. big bang? is it made by a gun? thus it concerns with the rotation of saturn? saturn, my favorite planet. when can i go there? have gone there? is there really rings on each volvanos? are there water source emanating in the insides of saturn? thus it relates to you? maybe i am not the one who is insane? i guess its you..

is this insanity?

Life: a VIEW

Life has been really tricky. like what others are saying,"La vida no es dulce, es amargo"("Life is not sweet, it is bitter"). Struggling from infancy up to the present,i still haven't found the true meaning of life. i still journey inside my cranium to find my goal. Autonomous perceptions and views have done no help. Friends and even my family gave nothing. Shattered with precious memories and profound dreams, i have been transformed into a stronger person. Una persona mas fuerte.As Socrates once said, "Know thyself".
Propensities and coincidences had passed but i am still lost. But, where am I going? What is the right path?Is this only an assay for me?
My propinquity to the divine truth is quite vast. Sheared with neatness of determination I armored to defend myself from monstrous lies.My mind and heart battle for supremacy.I just wanted to know the truth, the meaning of life, to be satisfied. Pero como? But how?
Now, I simply live the most of my life and I hope someday the answers i want will come into life.

Why we Hate E-mails?

Electronic-mailing is a way of composing, sending, storing, receiving personal or public messages to a recipient using the Internet over electronic communications system.

Om Malik’s apprehensions and perceptions with e-mailing is a bit of an exaggeration for me. He cited points that are a little out ways on the overhand of it. But he has a point, a very gist point that will interpenetrate the minds of people who are using e-mailing. I will admit that, while e-mail has some wonderful advantages, it isn't exactly without its pitfalls. We have a whole generation of workers coming through the ranks now who don't have the communication skills that many before us had. The art of conversation is undoubtedly dying and the business world will suffer as a result. E-mail surely have some problems concerning of spam, spam junk, and the likes. You received useless messages such as updates from socialization sites (Friendster, Myspace, Hi5, Multiply and etc.), invitation to school pranksters sites, spam about everyone is watching NBA (as if I care!) and everybody is watching SREA (what is SREA all about!?), mails about a new found fossil egg, and the other unwanted messages. This is in such reasons of that e-mail can received messages that tend to be an alien message. But there are phenomena on the usefulness of e-mail. These are spamming and e-mail worms. Spamming is unsolicited commercial e-mail. Because of the very low cost of sending e-mail, spammers can send hundreds of millions of e-mail messages each day over an inexpensive Internet connection. Hundreds of active spammers sending this volume of mail results in information overload for many computer users who receive tens or even hundreds of junk messages each day. E-mail worms use e-mail as a way of replicating themselves into vulnerable computers. Although the first e-mail worm affected computers, the problem is most common today on the more popular Microsoft Windows operating system. E-mails are having privacy problems also without the security precautions, it can be compromised. E-mail messages are generally not encrypted and have to go through intermediate computers before reaching their destination, meaning it is relatively easy for others to intercept and read messages. Many Internet Service Providers (ISP) store copies of your e-mail messages on their mail servers before they are delivered. The backups of these can remain up to several months on their server, even if you delete them in your mailbox and the Received: headers and other information in the e-mail can often identify the sender, preventing anonymous communication. Malik’s words are deafening to the ear of e-mail lovers. But he is still right. E-mail is slowly killing the Internet usage into its deepest concerns. Being aware of the limitations is half the battle in making sure that your e-mails are clear and result in what you intended, not what someone else thought you might have intended.

E-mails are useful but it can be a vicious killer application of Internet. It could worsen the infrastructure of the Web because of billions of spasm and e-mail worms that are multiplying right under the nose of e-mail users.

Davao Cyber Expo

Davao Cyber Expo has been a great success. Information has been distributed through a technological manner. The Expo wants to inform the people, especially students that we are in a technology era now. We cannot just hang around and wait for nothing. Davao Cyber Expo wants to say to students that they should be aware of all the new technologies, such as: application softwares, online role playing games, web designing software.

I, for myself, have experience a couple of the fun games in the expo. I have played the game called Audition. This is an online role-playing game. The game is all about dancing and turning up the tune by just stroking the right key that the game needed. It was a great experience and I have been planning to continue it if I had time.

After that, I have listened with the seminar about new software and games of the industry (as a requirement). I have learned new things, first is the new three-dimensional object editor and video enhancement. I was amazed on how interactively edits the three-dimensional object. Then, there is this new game called, Granado Espada. This game is also an online role-playing game. It is about choosing a character, killing monsters and enhancing skills. Lastly, there is a lecture on the new Acrobat Reader. Many services have offered in this new software of Adobe. I was astonished with the tools that can be used. The speaker has been very flexible with his lecture. He called some volunteers (I was hoping I was one of them, but I’m not) for a practice and if they have do it correctly he gave them books which he have written.

We, as a dabaweño, should be very proud of this Expo because we are granted as one of the first to conduct a lecture and seminar about the said event. There have been so much to learn and I cannot wait when will be the next Davao Cyber Expo. And I also wish I will be, someday, one of the speakers of such seminar like the Expo.

Internet Downtime


Downtime have been a big problem in the Internet world which causes a large amount of money loss of the companies that relies on their online services. Pacific Solutions Philippines have made an Internet Solution for this issue which is, Optimaxx. This is a business continuity solution that is Filipino-made since it was developed under the unique requirements and situation in the country. Internet downtime can be defined as a period or a percentage of span of time that the Internet is not functioning or as we commonly called it as offline, are quickly irritable in some enterprise because it will have a damaging effect of serious economic impact. This might result for money loss that will reached up to millions of dollars. 24-hour services will be much affected including medical transactory informatics, online news reporting, weather coverage, electronic-commerce, and persistent online gaming. Downtimes are a normal experienced by 78% of the population. It generally occurs one to three times in a month and would normally take up to four hours per month to restore. This really a big thing to solve. Certain amount of time that is considered in order for the restoration of Internet service.

Banks, both local and international, will also be a great affection on downtimes. Several banking transaction online will be loss. Economic status of these banks will have a degrading result, small revenues and critical status of the company. This will be a big problem to the country's economic standing.

As for me, Internet downtime is a chaos in the web world. But i think downtime played an important role in the Internet world. Everything has limitations and weaknesses, this includes. Internet needs time to rest from transmitting data and communicating informations. And this, i think, is a necessity of the Internet.

Pacific Internet is the largest telecommunications independent Internet communications service provider in all Asia Pacific region with the undeviating assemblage in Philippines, India, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. They are the one who is responsible for the downtime problem. With their Optimaxx as “premium” Internet solution, downtimes will decreased in time. The designed service and programs of Optimaxx will ensure unparalleled utmost and maximum network online availability for clients and costumers that has applications which cannot stand with hash less because to downtimes. This also helps maintain the service availability, achieve optimal routing, and fortify their Internet resiliency. It will also help for the elimination of expenses in relation to storage of their business processes and productivity losses when personnels are unable to run their databases, receive emails or process orders of sales, online hotel reservation and the likes.

Thus, Pacific Internet solution is a big help to the Internet world. Filipinos should be proud because it originated from Pacific Internet Philippines. This is a big development for the industry of service providers.

Hacking!!

Hacking is the act of forfeiting individual freedom of action or professional integrity in exchange for wages or other assured reward. Computer Hacking is a crime as the laws have stated. Someone caught hacking will be imprisoned for a certain number of years. Hacking has been a practice to programmers, whom have great minds, for a protest or rebellion to the government or private companies. But it cannot be easily to identify a hacker, so difficulties on it.

In concerns with Victor Faur, I think NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) have reached their limitations and boundaries. I agree with Mr. Faur, computers are really vulnerable and assailable when an attack or an outbreak will be made. Faur just wanted to reach out people or the public those NASA computers or supercomputers are all weak and frail on some terms. If it is not vulnerable, Faur would not have break through top security system of NASA.

In legal terms, I guessed Faur have broken the law. It is illegal in some terms if you consider the laws and policies that have been regulated by the law. But in layman’s point of view, Faur did the right thing. Faur also wanted to stretch out his knowledge and test it out. He has made something important and vital to mankind and the world of technology.

I guess hacking is not the right word for Faur’s actions. It is too devilish and unrighteous to accuse someone that is out of bounds. I surmise cracking is most likely to be considered and acceptable enough for his actions. Hacking is when you have reached the limitations (modifications and erasing files).

Thus, as for my own point of view with due concerns of Mr. Victor Faur did, I believe that he just did the right thing: to show to the world how vulnerable computers are not only in NASA but in the whole globe.
