May Revolution na nang yayari sa America na hindi makikita sa mga balita. Kung hanapin sa internet ay inyong makikita. Libo libong tao sa mga stadium, townhall, at ibat ibang venue punong punong ng tao parang may rocks star na nag kokoncert. Bawat saan siya pupunta ay umaapaw ang mga tao na gusto siya makita. Sino siya? Siya ay ang Presidential Candidate na si Congressman Ron Paul. Kung hanapin sa You Tube makikita mo ang mga video na ito. Kung sa balita ka makikinig ay akala mo ang kalaban niya na si Mitt Romney ay nanalo na ng Republican Nomination. Kung pansinin ninyo ang mga video sa cable news, pag nananalita si Mitt Romney sa TV ay ang camera ay lagging nakacloseup. Hindi sila puwede mag wide angle dahil makikita na konting-konti lang ang supporter niya. Mulit si Mitt Romney ang sabi nila na ang front runner ng Republican Party na mag lalaban kay Obama sa General Election at malamang matatalo. Munit hindi pa nila puwede sabihin iyon hanggan hindi pa naganap ang Republican National Convention sa katapusan ng August.

Nung Cinco de Mayo pumunta ako sa Sparks, Nevada para sa Nevada Republican Convention. Mas ma komplikado ang election sa America dahil meron Primary at General. Sa primary election, ang mga tao ay buboto sa Party nila mula sa mas maliit na lugar na precint, County, State hanggang National. Sa State Convention sa Nevada ay 22 sa 28 delegates ay supporter kay Ron Paul. Sila ang pupunta sa Tampa, Florida sa August at sila ang pipili kung sino ang tatakbo laban kay Obama sa General Election.

Kung si Ron Paul ang maging presidente ng America ay malaking pagbabago America. Siya ay strictong constitutionalist. Kung wala sa constitution ng America ay hindi niya kaya gawin anuman. Sabi sa constitution ang panguguera ay kailangan ipasa sa congress. Kung hindi, di hindi. Hindi ito nakukuha sa approval ng UN o anumang international organization. Ang huling digmaan na diniclare ng Congress ay ang World War II at yun ang huling digmaan na nanalo an America. Pag si Ron Paul ang Presidente, ang mga sundalo sa Iraq, Afghanistan at iba pang sulok sa mundo ay maaring umuwi na, at pang defensiya lang ang military at hindi pang occupado ng ibat ibat bansa sa mundo.

Bawasan ng one Trillion dollar ang budget ng America sa unang taon. Siya lang ang nag sasabi nito. Malaking pagbabago sa iba na bawasan lang a proposed increase. Siya ay isang military veteran, nag serve siya bilang doctor nung may digmaan sa Vietnam. Nakita at ginamot niya ang mga sugatin sa laban. Sa privado practice Siya ay isang Doctor na nag deliver ng 4000 babies.

Kung ang magsakaw sa banko ay kunukulong bakit ang banko tuloy ang systema na pag nakakaw ng masa sa pag imprenta ng pera. Tuwing mag imprenta ang Central Bank ang value nito ay nag dilute sa value ng pera na nakakalat na. Kung sino ang unang makahawak ng bagong imprenta nap era ay siyang nakinabang at bawat palit ng kamay at pauntiunti marandaman ang effect ng inflation. Ang Ginto at Pilak ay dati pang gamit ng pera. Hindi ito puwede pa print lang. Maraming gawa para mabu ang pera na gawa sa ginto o pilak. Ang inflation ay maliit lang at hindi biglaan. Kung Presidente si Ron Paul puwede gawing pera ulit ang ginto o pero at ang mga savings ng tao ay protectado sa inflation.

Isa pa. Ang mga nag dodonate sa kanya mga active duty sundalo mula military. At sari sari pang mga tao na sumusuporta sa kanya. Kontrast ito sa mga corporation at malalaking banko na nag contribute kay Obama o Romney.

Siya an gang isang kakaiba sa politika. Kahit siya ay nagiisa sa botohan sa floor ng Congreso hindi niya kakalimutan ang nakalagay sa constition. Ang kailangan lang gawin natin para mawala ang karamihan na problema natin ay sundin ang konstitution. Sana sa mga Filipino sa California at ibang state na hindi pa naganap ang Primary o Caucus election ay maging Delegate kayo para siya ang maging Presidente na ang tunay na pagbabago para sa kabutihan ng buong mundo.

Not sure if the forum can stay. So far only spam are being posted. But it is experimental for the moment.

Top Ten WebhostWhat are the top web hosting companies out there? Well, head on over to www.thetop10bestwebhosting.com to find out. That’s right, top ten hosting.

There is a comparison chart to help you choose the best host based on its features like how often data is backed up and PHP/MySQL support.

The site layout is clean, bright and easy to read. There is a page to show prices for UK or US. One thing is missing are the webhost that didn’t make top 10. I wish I could submit reviews for webhost not listed. My own webhost, Dot Easy, is not on the list. However the ones listed looks top notch and varied. This is after all is “The Top 10 Best Webhosting.” The number two ranked host you can read the iPage reviews. And for the current number one read up on Just Host.

One thing that may or may not be obvious is on top of the chart is a red text that read “updated: day month year.” Just to let you know how the current data is. It seems to be updated just about every day.

To the right of each host is a review link. Clicking on it takes to page that shows what others are saying about it. You can add your comments too. It’s interesting what others have to say.

My take on trickle down economics. This is another way to describe interdependence. More like a joke that down plays it.There are employees, employer and client or customer. Most of us play one or two of these roles. The employees earn a paycheck from their employer. The employer profit from their client or customer. And the customer is probably employed at another company. Money moves through these roles and the economy prosper.

Income tax is like leaky faucet. Inflation is like a leaky bucket. Sales tax or VAT is like a leaky sink or washing machine. Minimizing or eliminating these leaks would make things run more efficiently.

Assuming you work for small private company without strong connection to Wall Street, then lower taxes would be beneficial for you. A tax cut on the relatively rich employer could be passed down to their employees. Any excess income can be converted to capital by investing in new equipment or to expand operation allowing companies to hire more employees helping to reduce unemployment.

If you work for a too big to fail company with strong ties to Wall Street then your company is probably taking advantage of special loopholes and mandates. Your company may take greater risk knowing it would get bailed out. When the company gets bailed out, the big boss gets huge bonuses. Employees, client and customers get nothing. Everybody pays with inflation because of the new money created for the bailout.

When talked about on TV. They allude the effect of latter and blame it to the former. That is, that the wealth barely reach the less wealthy. That's why it is called a trickle, the flow is restricted. This may only be true for the second scenario mentioned, with the too big to fail companies but not with smaller private companies.

It seems the most prominent malware infections I see lately are malwares that pretend to be anti-malware. People try to fix their computer by loading it up with anti-malware programs. The computer somehow becomes slower. The reason is probably that two real-time protections are conflicting with each other. By real-time, I mean, a program that runs and check your system as you open programs and files. Imagine working with two or more bosses. All of them watching you and giving you orders at the same time you’d be frustrated too, so will your computer. So choose one and stick with it or replace it. Don’t run two or more at once.

Then with the computer so slow you load it up with more anti-malware programs increasing your chance of malware infection because it seems that’s how newer malwares find their way. This is not new. It just seems more pervasive as of late. One way of preventing you from installing malware pretending to be anti-malware is knowing what real anti-malwares are. There magazines and websites that review these anti-malware programs. Before you install unwittingly another one, read those reviews. Please. Here is one to start. http://www.pcmag.com/category2/0,2806,4796,00.asp

If you got more than one real-time anti-virus programs running on your system with some exceptions you should uninstall all except for one. The exception is Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware. This seems to be great at getting rid of Anti-Malware in case your regular anti-virus misses some. The free download allows you to scan the computer and delete infections. A common anti-malware is called Anti-Malware and Error Fix. Notice it doesn’t have any brand name or the maker of the program. This is a sign it is malware.

What’s the difference between malware and virus? A virus is a sub class of malware that can do damage to your computer and duplicate itself when you insert storage device like a USB drive. Malware can include spyware, which may monitor what you do, or adware, which are annoying pop up programs attached to other programs.

So in short know the real Anti-Malwares available and do your research before installing your anti-malware program. Don’t run more than one real-time protection since it may conflict with each other and slow down your system. Have a happy computing!!!

They fixed the description to say 95W so I got one. Unfortunately it seems to be unstable on my ECS A780GM-A Black Edition motherboard. I gave it to my cousin to try on his system with 785G chipset and it seems to work. Now I'll have to save up for another motherboard and memory since my DDR2 won't fit into DDR3.

I thought I the 95W version of 1055T 6 core Phenom was finally available in the US but it turns out to be a typo. It came up on the search for "HDT55TWFK6DGR" which linked me to TigerDirect.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6455299&sku=A79-1155

When I read the title and the description it doesn't match. I used the chat feature and asked which version it was and they responded that it was the 125W version. Hope to upgrade soon.

VLC 1.1.1 and Catalyst 10.7 have been out for a few days now. I've got it installed and trying it out. The biggest change is the use of graphics card to play videos which should offload the demand off the processor. I've tried it out and this is the result. I used Big Buck Bunny 1080p h264. They both run smooth with or without the acceleration but with acceleration the demand on the CPU is much less.

No Acceleration
Without Acceleration CPU utilization starts out at 45% and goes between 15 to 25 at times jumping to 35% throughtout the movie.

With Acceleration
With Acceleration the CPU utilization goes from 6% to 12% throughout the movie.

You can find BBB at http://www.bigbuckbunny.org/ and VLC at http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ and Catalyst at http://www.amd.com.

The following are some technologies I miss of the last decade. Some of it can be found on the first computer that I put together, an Athlon 800 MHz. Even earlier was my first packaged computer was an IBM Aptiva 486 SX2 50 MHz. These technologies not found on newer computers like the one I'm using right now which is an Athlon 64 X2. Parallel Port or Printer port. My new computer doesn't come with this port. I had a 10 year old Vision Paperport 3000 scanner that I couldn't use on the new computer. One of our project in College used the parallel port for a Cellphone Charging Machine. Everything seems to USB now.

Serial Port. I never really used this much. One way to use it is for Null Modem Cable. It's a way to transfer files from one computer to another. Using the same Null Modem Cable we played Total Annihilation on two computers. Computers didn't usually come with network cards and this was the easiest and cheapest way to connect two computers.

Joystick/Midi port. This is a port smaller than the parallel port but bigger than a serial port. I had a few joysticks or gamepad that plug use these. Though computer games rarely use joystick, Flight simulator games works great when played with a joystick.

Zip Drive. I never owned this but I know some people who used to use this a lot. It's like a 100 MB floppy drive. It's slow but holds much more than a 3.5" floppy. Nowadays USB drive have taken over. They are faster, cheaper, has more capacity, and more convenient since there are no special drive and media to buy.

Floppy Drive. My first computer had a 3.5" floppy. 5.25" inch floppy disk was on its way out even back in those days. School projects were sometimes submitted on floppies though floppies have a reputation of getting corrupted causing students to get lower grades or to fail unnecessarily. Some would remember AOL disk come to their door and have a collection.

LS 120 Optical or Super Floppies. This never became popular. It was expensive and prices never came down. The only advantage was that it read 1.44 MB floppies and 120 MB Supper Floppies.

Parallel ATA. This is still found on my computer but only one ribbon for two drives. AMD tends to hold on to older technologies while Intel tend be the first to phase them out. It's great for using older CD-ROM drives. Newer Intel motherboards are completely devoid of this interface.

CRT Monitors. I'm still using two hand-me-down CRT monitors in dual screen mode. I had to use two DVI to VGA converter to connect them. Looking around it seems you can't even buy CRTs anymore. Everything seems to be LCDs. And just recently I notice only wide screen are being made. I'm waiting for the new Multi-touch screen to become more available and cheaper. Acer has just release one. I'll get one of those when these CRTs give out.

AGP port. I can't find these anymore. PCI express is the current standard. I remember you had to get a motherboard this port for the best graphics card around.

ISA port. This was being phased out when I assembled my first computer some 10 years ago. Some motherboard had PCI/ISA convertible slots which you can physically plug in a PCI or an ISA but not both. My sound blaster card used ISA.

Ball Mouse. Yeah. These things do get dirty and are hard to clean. It's a ball inside the mouse which rolls and cause two rollers to move left or right and up and down on the screen. Don't know if they make them anymore.

Dial Up Modems. Yeah everybody has got broadband now it seems. My SEGA Dreamcast came with a 56K modem, thanks to those engineers which pushed to have it included in the North American version of the console. I used this to order most of my computer parts to assemble my first computer. An Athlon 800 mhz. This computer was fast. I could download and play MP3 on the computer. 20 GB was feeling spacious.

Next post will be some software missed.
