Presidential Election Day, Belated Mother’s Day Celebration and Murphy’s Doing it again!

Today is presidential election day in the Philippines. But as usual I did not vote because I can’t, since I am not a Filipino citizen. Elections in the Philippines are sometimes violent, but so far, thank God this year seems to be a lot more peaceful.

I started out my day working on the Funtastic website that should be online today. Then everyone at home at lunch at Dory’s for a post-mother’s day celebration. At least Mom was able to rest from cooking. I had no money that day so Ats and Marcia paid for everything. It was also nice to have Allan Go around.

We then went out to buy a few stuff for the house, but we ended up just buying a clock. Once we got home I went on working the Funtastic site again and for some mysterious reason, Murphy has been playing around with PhotoShop and made it not run. Just when I really needed this online. I tried installing it again, it didn’t work. I tried uninstalling GrandVision DVII, since it was the last thing I installed, as well as DirectX 8.0. Still did not work. I am now downloading DirectX 9.0b, as well as a new driver for GrandVision DVII, they may be causing conflicts with PhotoShop. I have been downloading DirectX for the last 45 minutes, and I still have more than an hour left. The DVII driver is also taking some time. Will login again later for other updates.

PC Viruses, No Money, Many Work

Guess what, almost all computers at school, where I teach are infected with viruses and spywares. It is really hard to control all these computers with so many students downloading so many stuff everyday. I decided to clean some of them, but did not clean them all since it will take forever.

Payday is near and I do hope they now pay our overtime pay on time because if they don’t, they already owe me two overtime pays. That sucks.

After eating dinner, I started modifiying the .psd files I got from Eric. There were cool, but I didn’t get to finish all the conversion and cutting of the images for html / php / mysql integration. But I have a long day tomorrow to finish that. Then I decided to play around with my blog template, and this is the result. I was thinking of what ideal colors are ok, and I could not think of any colors until I just thought of our house that we are setting up right now. I just copied the same color scheme and this is what came out.

It’s early morning already and i haven’t had any sleep yet. So I better get some sleep since it is another long day tomorrow.

Late for Work, Paquiao, Business

I supposed to be out already and be at work. I didn’t get to leave in the morning basically because of all the things Marcia needed to buy for the house, and I needed to accompany her to the various shops. Now my plans were all offset basically because of Manny Paquiao.

Our Mother’s Day lunch celebration for Mom, Marcia and Ats was postponed and moved to May 13 instead, since it was a common time for everyone where we all had no work.

I haven’t printed my billing statements for my clients, and haven’t cut the .psd files I need for Funtastic, but will work on them today. Right now I have to run to work right away where I am already late. It is my PC Networks and Troubleshooting class today and I have to teach file sharing and printer sharing today. I’ll be home at 9pm and will cut the .psd and prepare my billings for tomorrow.

I wanted to finish the Paquiao fight before I left to go to work, but I could not wait that long anymore, anyway, I know it is a delayed telecast by a few hours in the Philippines, so I decided to check out the results at Fight News and found out it was a draw. Now after a tiring day already, I still have to dress up and go on to my teaching schedule at Informatics.

While online, I decided to update my AVG, Ad-Aware and SpywareBuster, SpyBot and GFI LANguard. All had updates except SpyBot and LANGuard (as expected). There must be some new virus / spyware out there. So did a full virus scan, as well as spyware scan and got nothing but safe cookies.

Now, I’ve got to go and will write new updates again later.

Using my Blog and What’s New

Today is my first long post on my blog. What I thought would be a short day at work, became a long one. I thought my classes were only ST109B (CorelDraw, Adobe PhotoShop) from 9am to 12pm and earlier decided to go home early, until the CCs (Course Consultants – our sales staff) told us that they open two new classes. XP2PP (Creating Effective Presentations in PowerPoint) and XP2PC (PC Networks and Troubleshooting.)

I supposed to have a meeting today with En Blaze Training School, Inc., but I cancelled it because of these new classes. Thanks to modern technology by Alexander Graham Bell, we just talked over the phone and they sent me a faxed document.

I have a pending website that has to be done by Monday for Funtastic International, Inc. and this has been delayed for sometime also due to work at Informatics and mainly Murphy Law’s playing with my computers, but I had things covered since my friend Eric is helping me out with this. (While I help him pay his bills.) Well thanks to Mike too who has been helping out with the backend programming. Sorry Terence, I didn’t pass anything to you since these are small projects, nothing left for outsource work. So I go for the cheapest option, which is straight to the graphic artist and programmer.

I’m now at work since 9am and will be here up to 9pm. I filed all my overtime pays as well and hope I get them soon since bills are really piling up already.

Tomorrow, Sunday will be a busy day finishing Funtastic, cutting the .psd files and plugging the CMS in PHP/MySQL, as well as creating the final draft corporate portfolio for En Blaze and have the cost computed for offset printing.

My credit card is due tomorrow and thanks to Marcia, she helped me out pay for my bills, where she lent some money where I used to pay the bills this day. It is cutoff day for my salary at Informatics and I hope that they did charge the overtime pay already and I hope I get my overtime pay on time, as well as the overtime payment for last month. Because I need it badly. Bankard is shouting already, as well as my sister for the last P15K I own her and my bro-in-law for the car I bought from them.

Got to pass by as well at my new house being setup at North Olympus and check things out and I need to get back the LAN tester and bring it back to Informatics since I just borrowed it. I will also come up with an e-card for Marcia, since I am just broke right now, but at least I have an e-card to send to Marcia for mother’s day.

My resignation letter for work is already written and is being proof-read by Marcia and after that, I will finalize it and probably submit it on Monday. I hope by June I am no longer working for Informatics and start on preparing all the stuff I need to work some place else.
