Where will be my next vacation?

Last September 25, 2006 to October 9, 2006, I spent a vacation in the Philippines to attend an SEO Contest awarding and also meet up with my family as well. It was cool but there was 2 major typhoon storms and trees were falling down due to the strong winds and made some areas of Metro Manila to down south of Luzon in the Philippines powerless with on electricity as some electrical post fell down. 2 weeks was a bit short and the storms made my vacation even shorter. Now I’m back in the US and it is getting cold again. Here in San Diego, people love weather since it is not as cold as other places in the US. But I grew up in the equatorial country of the Philippines and it is pretty hot over there, way hotter than San Diego. And when I look for a vacation spot, I like the warm areas as well since even the cold months of being in southern California is too cold for me.

I guess next year I need a tropical beach vacation. I heard the Caribbean is great, along with a cruise ship package. But I’ll do that when I have a mutually convenient time scheduled with my wife and family so it will be even better. There are even more island options for a Caribbean vacation that I have read about on this website. It makes you even more prepared for a vacation, so you know where to stay, what things there are to do, what to eat while you are there, what to see in each tropical island. One thing I like about this Caribbean vacation site is they have a forum where you can learn more about the vacations from people that have been there already. On their site you can learn more about other vacation spots as well such as: Hawaii, Bermuda, Bahamas, South Pacific, Cayman Islands, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and more.

I guess the Caribbean islands is just so great that even the previous Search Bash was held there with Search Bash Jamaica! I guess this is a good idea that other events should also start trying to have them in any of these wonderful Caribbean islands.

Watch Cable TV for Free Online

Most of the time I work in front of the computer and after work, once I get home, I work again at home. And again in front of the computer. I can say I see the computer monitor more often than the TV screen. A few years back, I remember my room where I had a 35″ TV with cable TV and worked at the same time. Even if I do not pay full attention to the TV, once I hear something that catches my attention, I pause for a while and watch what I heard, and goes back working. And the TV is always left on any of the 3 channels: TechTV (Became G4:TechTV and today is G4TV), National Geographic and Discovery Channel.

Now with my situation in the US, I have no TV in my room and I have no plans of buying one in the near future. There is a TV in the living room, but I need work to be done so I just skip the TV all together. Although I have an external USB TV box, my other PC is busted right now, and I do not want to run my work and my TV on the same PC since the software just consumes too much resources.

But recently, I just learned about the Free Cable TV streaming online. So when I am working, I can run this software that streams Cable TV through my Internet connection for free. Although it is another program running on my desktop, it does not use much resources and does not do any observable slow down to my computer.
