Last night, art came to my mind

Well, last night after seeing this website from my advertiser in projectwonderful which actually have been common as I see it. Is comic websites...

5-6, or 7 years ago I used to make comics and read comics. I have classic collection of:

The Death of Superman-
The Return of Superman
Superman Vs. Aliens (3 books)
My manga favorite Ghost in the Shell
Ranma 1/2

I tried learning self-portraits...maybe today is the right time to learn again. I hope I'll find a good art school nearby our house so I can enroll and will be travel hassle free.

Acer Aspire 4310 AHCI installation problem

My final problem with the Acer Aspire 4310 laptop under windows XP is that this Mass Storage Controller will not be installed under AHCI installer/driver from acer euro.

The reason according from the installer...

"Did not meet the requirements"

I said... wtf????

Anyways, it's working without the AHCI controller.... who cares... lol

I'll play with it later if I get in the mood to do so.

Acer Aspire 4310, 2nd laptop fix for the month

Acer Aspire 4310 is another headache if you want windows XP on it.

Here's the official driver page

However, the wifi (on my case a broadcom) driver will not work. This sucks I know, for some reason it can't see the card. And will ask you to put it in. The thing is, its there.

The workaround is that you point the driver directly to the bcmwl5.inf file.

One device hasn't install on it yet, it's Mass Storage Controller yet. I use AHCI yet nothing, weird but atleast I didn't have the problem of booting the installer w/ a slipstream SATA driver.

Rohan Online Closed Beta

Rohan Online looks like an exciting game, I almost can't wait for it. LUG announced Closed Beta February, 2009.

I hope they will not exceed the Closed Beta testing and quickly move to Open Beta Testing...

...and never ever reset the servers.

I will definitely play this addictively if they don't reset the server.

The point of being early in the game during closed/open beta testing bores me quickly if my account got reset.

Naruto 434 - The Ninja of Suprises will suprise us again

So it seems from the last chapter 433, who would have guessed that Naruto has 2 more chances of being in Sage Mode.

Leaving two kagebunshin (true clones) from the frog world, granpa frog summoned one of the clones and *poof*...

...Naruto's back in Sage Mode.

Naruto 434 will be available today... hopefully...

Here's Naruto 433 if you missed it...

..naruto...434.....naruto.....434....naruto....434....(day dreaming drooling...)

What's my name means...

According to

You entered: Ivan

There are 4 letters in your name.
Those 4 letters total to 19
There are 2 vowels and 2 consonants in your name.

What your first name means:

UkrainianMaleGod's gift.
SlavicMaleVariant of John. Ivanhoe is the medieval variant Sir Walter Scott used for the Saxon hero of 'Ivanhoe.'.
RussianMaleThe Russian form of John: Gracious gift from God. Ivanhoe is the medieval variant Sir Walter Scott used for the Saxon hero of 'Ivanhoe.'.
HebrewMaleGift from God.
GreekMaleGlorious gift.

Your number is: 1

The characteristics of #1 are: Initiating action, pioneering, leading, independent, attaining, individual.

The expression or destiny for #1:
A number 1 Expression denotes the skilled executive with keen administrative capabilities. You must develop the capacity to be a fine leader, sales executive, or promoter. You have the tools to become an original person with a creative approach to problem solving, and a penchant for initiating action. Someone may have to follow behind you to handle the details, but you know how to get things going and make things happen. You have a good mind and the ability to use it for your advancement. Because of these factors, you have much potential for achievement and financial rewards. Frequently, this expression belongs to one running a business or striving to achieve a level of accomplishment on ones talents and efforts. You have little need for much supervision, preferring to act on your own with little restraint. You are both ambitious and determined. Self-confident and self-reliant must be yours, as you develop a strong unyielding will and the courage of your convictions.

Although you fear loneliness, you want to be left alone. You fear routine and being in a rut. You often jump the gun because you are afraid of being left behind.

The negative attributes of the 1 Expression are egotism and a self-centered approach to life. This is an aggressive number and if it is over-emphasized it is very hard to live with. You do not have to be overly aggressive to fulfill your destiny. The 1 has a natural instinct to dominate and to be the boss; adhering to the concept of being number One. Again, you do not have to dominate and destroy in order to lead and manage.

Your Soul Urge number is: 1

A Soul Urge number of 1 means:
Your Soul Urge is the number 1. With a Soul Urge number of 1, you want to lead and direct, to work independent of supervision, by yourself or with subordinates. You take pride in your abilities and want to be recognized for them. You may seek opportunities to display your strength and usefulness, wanting to create and originate. In your desire to manage the big picture and the main issues, you may often leave the details to others.

The positive 1 Soul Urge is Ambitious and determined, a leader seeking opportunities. There is a great deal of honesty and loyalty in this character. If you possess positive 1 Soul Urge qualities, you are very attainment oriented and driven to success. You are a loyal friend and strictly fair in your business dealings.

The negative side of the 1 Soul Urge must be avoided. A negative 1 is apt to dominate situations and people; the home, the spouse, the family and the business. Emotions aren't strong in this nature. If you possess an excess of 1 energy, you may, at times, be boastful and egotistic. You must avoid being too critical and impatient of trifles. The great need of the 1 Soul Urge is the development of friendliness, and a sincere interest in people.

Your Inner Dream number is: 9

An Inner Dream number of 9 means:
You dream of being creative, intellectual, and universal; the selfless humanitarian. You understand the needy and want to help them. You would love to be a person people count on for support and advice.

....well I guess this sums up the meaning I learned when I went to this boutique shop in SM Megamal 12 or more years ago about my name.

Ivan = God's Gift
Ivan = John
Ivan = Ivar in Russian

...hmm I was thinking to make a clone program of What's your/my name means... lol!

My Hackintosh

After a week or so... (I think I started January 21, 2009) , I have successfully configured my LAN to work. It's an onboard Intel Pro 100/VE LAN adapter. It took me days just to configured it. Finally I have good internet connection on my PC that run MAC's OS X. Configuring drivers for a non-mac computer like the PC takes a lot of patience, attitude, concentration, coffee, peanuts, and a whole lot of reading. You see, configuring in a "hackintosh environment" is like setting up a linux system. You configure your own drivers, setup up vendor and device id manually. Unlike in windows that you just double click your driver installers.

Upon writing this post, I'm actually writing "in it" using the operating system of mac in a pc.

Here's the screenshots of my Hackintosh.

and here...

(Having hardtime to get a screenshot though, it's quite a culture shock if you are used to windows)

I made the screenshot using GRAB.
I have installed Yahoo Messenger for my mac (err.. pc), blogged, surfed, chat and the SDK Developer Kit for iPhone.

I still have more to do, my video card aren't running at it's full capabilities. My desktop resolution is 1024x768, and my soundcard still aren't working.

But I guess all will be easy now I have internet connection.

The Damn OS is fast...

Check out my installed iPhone SDK

Tuesday, February 3, 2009


Currently, I'm playing with Hackintosh a.k.a. OSX86 the Mac OS X installed on a PC.

As of now, I'm successful in installing one in a D946GZIS Intel Motherboard, Dual Core Pentium CPU. But still need some fix on driver issues, right now I'm desperate configuring its NIC which is an Intel PRO 100 VE.

With two 512 DDR2 Rams and a GEFORCE 7300 GT 256 DDR, its nice to know it's running smoothly.

I will post more in my venture to the hackintosh world.

The Limits of Sage Mode - Naruto 432

If you have read Naruto Chapter 432, its very ironic to see Sage Mode in a very short period of time. Well, you know Naruto. He's always impulsive and jumps into strategies without thinking. He used "Rasen Shuriken", the Rasenggan Shuriken, but this time he was able to throw it at the enemy at a distance.

However, Pain didn't take a critical hit. The Rasen Shuriken exploded, and took almost all of Naruto's Sage Chakra.

Gamabunta swallowed up Summon(or Animal Realm, I really forgot... :D), disconnecting it from Pain's Rinneggan.

Naruto took one of Pain's bodies with double "rasenggan" on both of his hands.

Now Naruto ran out of Sage Mode, the question is...

How will he fight Pain, now that he is not in Sage Mode.

Hope the "Ninja of Suprises" won't disappoint us, or atleast I got one clue for Naruto 433 predictions. Pain will manage to escape.

Read my previous post on Naruto 431, and Awaiting Naruto 432.

How to globe share load

For some reason I tend to forget about this process, my father always ask me about this info too, "How to globe share load".

Actually the process is pretty much simple.

All you have to do is:

and send it to 2 plus the 10 digit number starting 9.


Text 20
send to 29171234567

(Note: the cell number is fictional so be careful that you might send load to it)

Oh, I just also remembered. I'm using Touch Mobile, lol. Oh well, this one works for both Globe and Touch Mobile subscribers.

Take note also that if you are new in this process, you will receive an automated reply wherein you can add you pin so other people (if they got a hold of your cellphone) can't share-a-load themselves from your load/credit. Do that process in order to put your pin.

For the love of robotics

Last saturday and sunday, watching "robots movie" came into my mind. I remembered this cool movie in the 80's "Short Circuit". Actually, I have only seen Short Circuit 2 so I was in movie delight last saturday.

Unfortunately after Short Circuit 2, there was no more sequel followed.

Today I google`d and youtube`d some robots and I found this one interesting.

Finally after the long wait, Naruto chapter 431 is out.

You can read the manga here.

One thing is confirmed though, Sasuke didn't appear in Naruto Chapter 431 which in contradicts the Naruto 431 Spoilers. As well as some predictions in the Naruto 431 Spoilers regarding the frogs spit oil on the summons and Naruto using Katon Wildfire Technique.

This time, another week of waiting for Naruto Chapter 432. Arg! Arg! Arg!

Naruto 431 Spoilers

Well, I have been restless about the Naruto 431 issue. Spoilers and raw manga sources have seemed to leaked out now. According to, Naruto will make an awesome comeback with his new skills.

Oh, I really want to see the frogs fighting out with Naruto.

And Sasuke will show up, according to this raw spoiler.


And it seems a lot of guys in the forums predicts with the same prediction (including me as well) that sooner or later Bee (the one who can go well with his 8-tailed jinjuuriki) will teach him to tame or go well with the 9-tailed fox.

The excitement is killing me, I might hibernate from Naruto again for a month or more so I can manga reading marathon again.

Cool movie based in real life - Fighter in the Wind

After some work in the shop last night, went back home and open up the tube. Tuned in to Kapuso Channel 7 (naks!), and found myself watching this movie titled "Fighter in the Wind". Although already "Tagalog" Dubbed, the movie is good.

Today I research some infos about it and found out that it was excerpted from true to life story. According to

Masutatsu Oyama (Choi Baedal) took on all challengers, resulting in fights with 270 different people. The vast majority of these were defeated with one punch! A fight never lasted more than three minutes, and most rarely lasted more than a few seconds. His fighting principle was simple — if he got through to you, that was it.

If he hit you, you broke. If you blocked a rib punch, your arm was broken or dislocated. If you didn't block, your rib was broken. He became known as the Godhand, a living manifestation of the Japanese warriors' maxim ichi geki, hissatsu (one strike, certain death). To him, this was the true aim of technique in karate. The fancy footwork and intricate techniques were secondary (though he was also known for the power of his head kicks)

Xbox 360 Disc Replacement Program

Xbox 360 Disc Replacement Program

While reading some websites, articles, youtube videos regarding disc scratching on Xbox 360. I found this on regarding their Disc Replacement Program.

But still, it is not satisfying to know that you have to pay your replacement disc if you apply the program. I mean, c'mon you bought your 100% original disc then get scratched by your very own gaming console unit.

Here are some lab (and conventional living room environment test) that the xbox 360 really scratch disc even on its standard operating state.
