DNS Launching

For almost four years in the making my system will finally get a test of being fully used this coming Nov 3, 2007. It took me this long because a lot of factors during the development phase occurred and I didn’t expect things would be really tough as this one.We did have a meeting just last week and I was really expecting a full blown system implementation but things just didn’t go my way. Some users were really scared of the output that they demand for another one more month of beta testing. I have to admit I was really frustrated that time and it took me almost one day to recover and focus my attention into understanding why I have to swallow the result of the meeting. Never the less, I decided to focus much my attention on delivering the results in this up coming test run to justify everything I did and complete the whole one month process of test run for this month of November.

To Those Who Are Lost

A special message to all those who are having a hard time.

Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

Open Source: More than free

Beyond cost here are some of the reasons why schools prefer Java over Microsoft tools. Starting with mobility Nokia and SonyEricson which leads the mobile sector in the Philippines is powered with Symbian OS. C++ and Java are the key language to develop new apps.

Though merong mga mobile devices powered with Windows Mobile still it’s too expensive to match up with these devices. Considering prices drop every month and new devices are being brought up in the market.

Second thing is the Web. ASP.net is pretty elegant and fast however, a combination of open source tools such as PHP, Perl, GWT(Google Web Tool Kit-uses java to create ajax application) and more are creating a lot of attention these days. Plus Adobe is doing a good job in helping designers to keep up with the developers.

The third is the Systems. VS.net is indeed one tough tools that is unmatched by any open source tools. However, not all developers are happy with it due to its limitations particularly the express edition but b…
