#121/366 Blog Photo Challenge

router

It is my last day of hosting this challenge. I am quite sad about it for I have enjoyed hosting the whole month but I have to rest for a few in blogging as my health isn’t cooperating. Plus I have to give somebody a chance to host this fun challenge too. It was a great month for me hosting this challenge for I got to know and be close with bloggers that I haven’t known before. I thank you all so much for joining Blog Photo Challenge under my hosting. It was great knowing you all and visiting your blogs.

For my last share of photo for this challenge, I am sharing this router – Buffalo Air Station MIMO that helped me connect to the Internet during the time I couldn’t face my computer with of course, the help of my mobile phone. Read more »

#117/366 Blog Photo Challenge

Warning: The picture below is not appropriate for the kids below 18 years of age to see due to the presence of a cigarette.

I tried the updated Facebook for Android just a while ago on my Samsung Android phone to check how better the updated version than the original one. There is only one thing I like about it and it is the separated Facebook camera application for a quick photo sharing. Below is the very first photo taken after installing the update. Read more »

#115/366 Blog Photo Challenge

My pretty Chizka fresh from the shower. Picture below was taken two days ago using Instagram. You can view it on Instagram through this link: http://instagr.am/p/JtgLk4yHoB/.

After those stinky months, Chizka finally had a bath! Lol! Blame it to the lazy and careless mama who had been snobbish to her little dog.  Chizka was so happy that she smells good again. Plus she was able to come out and play. She is pretty, isn’t she? She is my little darling.  I let her sleep on my bed with me last night since she smelled good and gave her the petting she had been craving for. Read more »

366 BPC: Using Laptop as CPU

I just bought a new Central Processing Unit (CPU) five months ago yet it had crashed last night in the middle of my blog design job. I thought at first it was my monitor that had malfunctioned but when I connected it to my laptop, it worked. Therefore, the problem was the CPU. I don’t wonder though for it is a cheap brand or I don’t know if it is even a brand called Discovery. I know it was named locally and it was a customized central processing unit. Now it’s the lesson I learned for being a cheapstake at gadgets especially computers to think it’s my medium to earning extra income.

I took the CPU today at Octagon, a local computer store here where I am a regular costumer. I do hope it is still fixable, can be picked up tomorrow and doesn’t need a reboot for all my blog design jobs were stored there and I am close to the deadline. I don’t want to do the designing all over again! I’ve been breaking my promises to my costumers and last night when everything was finished, the CPU crashed. Unfortunate me! Right now, I am using my laptop as the CPU. Thanks to this laptop for rescuing my online life for the meantime.

A4 Tech Anti-Glare Webcam

Finally, I got a new webcam. It has been months already when I got it. My 4 years old webcam had already malfunctioned a long time ago but I didn’t mind having no webcam due to I had no reason to use it. My husband was here and I have no relatives from outside the country that I talk regularly with webcam.

Sysa, my high school friend who’s currently working as a nurse in Chicago has been bugging me to get a new webcam so we could see each other. She sure missed me that much. Lol! I missed her too so a few months back, I got this 16 Megapixel A4 Tech Anti-Glare Webcam for Php900.00. I tell you, it’s worth the price.

This webcam works with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. I am currently using Windows 7 and it works really great. Here’s the specification:

Still image:Up to 16 Megapixel, 4608×3456 (software interpolated)
Image sensor:1/6″CMOS, 640×480 pixels
Frame rate:30fps@160×120, @320×240, @640×480
Lens:F=2.4, f=3.5 mm
View angle:54 degrees
Focus range:Automatic focus, 10 cm to infinity
Exposure control:Automatic
White balance:Automatic
Microphone:Built-in
Computer interface:USB 2.0

That’s me in the little square. Sysa was just using her laptop’s built-in webcam.

I’ve used it with Sysa right away and we had a great time talking to each other. I was happy to at least see her on her blurred webcam. I like this webcam of mine! Even my friends like it too. They like coming over here at my place to use it for cam to cam chatting.
