Mandriva Linux One 2010.2 Gnome - Review

Boot-up takes a while to load but once loaded the magic begins, from a Mandrake Fan yes I am one of the many user who tested and fell in love with Mandrake. It was during my short stint in a local secondary school where I accidentally bumped into Mandrake and since I love tinkering with new application especially with open source but don’t get me wrong I’m no Linux nor Open Source expert I just happen to be one of the million Linux Newbie and would eventually part of the former user of Microsoft Products, sorry bill but you should try Linux in one of your seminars one time you would be amazed how much fun and exciting driving a Linux Distro!

Oops sorry, I know it was supposed to be a Mandriva Linux One 2010.2 gnome review I just lost a bit there anyway back to the review, again after a long but tolerable boot-up it was almost a perfect desktop OS (we’re still waiting for such OS) let us start my amazing rediscovery of Mandrake now Mandriva!

Gone Too Soon - AJ Perez

While I’m procrastinating about my impending early retirement my sister who was surfing the net at that time told me what happen to AJ Perez and when I heard the shocking news about the early demise of a very young actor, it send me resting with my back on my favorite chair, a sudden surge of electrifying truth poured unto my immobile body!

Gone Too Soon – Files, Programs, and Personal Stuff

A long long time ago (sounds like a song lyrics) I saw someone buying an external drive (WD Passport) in a mall well my first impression is, why invest in such device like that when you can buy another internal storage device that can be connected inside my machine no problem isn't it?

Well that same argument broke me and commanded me to kneel and howl a very resentful sigh! OMG! My storage drive did a last rumba for me and just like that it was gone… gone? WTF, all of my files, programs and personal stuff inside my drive was gone? 

Gone Too Soon – Rt. Rev. Joaquin A. Siongco, Jr.

Days passed-by; still I can’t type a word to start my story. It was during my senior years that I would meet the person I call now – Tatay (father) Jas; he was good old looking, always in jeans, sporty and quite snappy well that’s how Tatay Jas is to me.

Our first meeting did not send any special connection right away; it will take months after, he being one of my professors asks me to do something related to my subjects and for the school as well and so I did but with a heavy heart, I felt it’s not really part of my academic task to do such thing. Well in short I did the job shabbily and was easily spotted by Tatay Jas! I was so embarrassed that when he confronted me about it I tried circumventing his instruction to favor my work! But this man who happens to possess a crazy memory genes turn around to stare right thru my eyes and stated the same instruction complete with punctuations as they were being given to me few weeks back! I was so taken-aback, I really thought I could escape from this situation but I did not and cannot! That’s how he earned my respect, he always tells us not to ask or beg for respect but to always work your way to earned it with a firm footing!

After I graduated I took a teaching job in a private secondary school, where I thought computer subjects for the junior and senior students of the said institution. It took us another three (3) more years before our path crosses again, these time he ask me if I could convince myself rechanneling my teaching prowess from secondary to a tertiary position. At first I was a bit reluctant; I could not imagine teaching in a tertiary environment. Maybe I just could not convince myself the idea of teaching college student, nonetheless I was swayed to accept the position and since I am a Snake Capricorn I told myself why not!
