Astricon2006: “in the zone” hours before dCAP certification

DSC03502-2Jet-lagged, pressured, afraid to fail  but inspired and determined.  Ten years ago, 2006, I use an old-laggy laptop lent to me by my boss… Reading the Asterisk PDFs and telecommunications dictionary, the voip-info.org site and practicing and simulating Asterisk configuration.  I took the dCAP certification exam without the “bootcamp” in Dallas, Texas.   After hours of written and hands-on examination,  I became one of the first Digium Certified Asterisk Professional in the Philippines.

Thank you so much Boss Jr. Contreras!

These two Internet speed testers provided different results using CableLink TV Internet Service Provider. After several months of complaints through call and on their Facebook page. This service provided did not even bother to improve their service. Their phone support denies that their company is shaping our bandwidth. But using fast.com , obviously they are lying.

The “Lordman” Marikina Leather Shoes

Most of the shoes na makikita mo sa malls is either synthetic or over expensive na half-baked leather shoe.  Yung tipong kitang kita mong dinikit lang at madaling masira.

The only place na tinatakbuhan to get a pair is Marikina Public Market.  Pwede kang makapili from cheaply made to very affordable quality leather shoes, at ang daming pagpipilian.

My newly found spot is yung Lordman Marikina Shoe store.  They sell genuine leather shoes and belts.  My pair cost me PhP 1,400 … more affordable than the brands sold in malls.

Drop by kayo sa Lordman shop kung hindi rin kayo satisfied sa mga shoes na nabibili sa malls.   Bukod sa sulit, support the local industry na din 😉
