I have been so busy lately, doing all these sites. Currently for my business in the Philippines. If ever sales is made outside the Philippines, this is an online transaction and the purchase goes straight to the Philippines.

But I cannot hold office, have a business bank account, and interact directly here. But once I got my business up and running here, along with my marketing collateralsm, I’ll be doing sales all the time when the opportunity arises.

I’ll start out as a sole proprietor since my business has always been a SOHO in the Philippines. And what I will do here is basically repeating everything I have done in the Philippines.

I got so much to read. Especially on what are taxable in my services and how much tax is paid for the service I render.

Well right now, my mind is more on my vacation with my family next month. And finishing all the projects I have right now before I leave.

When I get back from my 3 week vacation, it will be more business again.

Been Busy… Some Pictures

I’ve been busy lately with all sorts of things.

Less time to blog.

My college classmate Richard emails some pictures to our college classmates’ Yahoogroup. He posts them and ask people to come up with a caption.

Instead of giving a caption, I edited them.

He emailed these:

And I sent back these:

Now back to work…

Tables and Slices

I was a hard core tables user before in 1996 to 2004. My shift to full CSS tableless sites started when I worked at Einstein Industries. And whenever I see a heavy tables site to fix, I just do not feel like working on it. Sometimes I want to re-do everything. If there is anything I do not like doing here at work, it is fixing a tables site that is messed up. I think this is my third post in my blog about this. Because I really do not want to work on them, but I do have to work on them. I really do not like how they were made, and I believe many webmasters will agree with me. Table sites are fine, but if they are not made correctly, even if the website looks fine, they are hard to maintain. Some people using tables just do not know how to use them correctly.

Time to Upgrade

My PC has been running on Homesite 5.1, Dreamweaver MX, Photoshop 7.0 that had problems and used Photoshop 5.0 instead. GoToPdf. But I do have Homesite 5.5, Dreamweaver MX 2004, Photoshop 8.0 CS and Adobe Acrobat Standard. But I just feel that I do not have time to upgrade everything since every time I am chasing a deadline.

But I just could not stand working in Photoshop 5.0 anymore, so I decided to work on the upgrades. I started uninstalling an installing. And during the whole process, I am just watching and waiting for every step to go on. And in the meantime, bloggin.

Old School BMXers, where are they?

I just spent tons of hours not working! What a waste of time, I got tons of pending projects.

I am one BMX guy that has been riding seriously since 1986. Tried freestyle, ad played around and competed in local races in BMX and mountain biking. Influences are actually high school classmates, like Arvin Casanova and Jefferson Arrangorin. They learned earlier and I always felt I needed to catch up. When I started to finally learn, they stopped already.

I may not be as competitive as I was before, but I still have a few freestyle tricks under my sleeve. At least I still have something to show my children. There is just a time that you stop because you have to, but when the opportunity arises to still ride, even with less skills, I still ride.

That made me think, what happened to all the pros during my BMX days? I started searching and came across this website, All I can say that this site is really good if you are one of the old school BMXers. Being a webmaster, all I can say is the website looks real bad, even how information is presented. But the information is really really good. New school BMXers may not appreciate it if they do not know the people they are talking about. Find out what happened to Eddie Fiola, Woody Itson, Martin Aparijo, Mike Dominguez, Jose Yanez and the hot Krys Dauchy (she is still hot) and more. And the pros find out about the website and actually gives in updates themselves.

One nice thing I see is that they still find time to bike, even if they are not a good as before. And another nice thing is Bob Haro and Woody Itson who now works for GT still gives free bikes to the old pros once in a while even if these old pros may not be biking in the same way they used to. They just know that they will be happy riding a new freestyle BMX bike.

One funny thing to read, if you have watched Rad over and over again on your old Betamax, there is a funny interview of Cru Jones on the website.

So to all old school BMX Freestyles, is a recommended site that you need to read.

I spent like 2 hours just reading stories on this website. Well back to work…
