the other day, our new IT consultants changed our IP address and installed some web filtering software in our server. it's the most ideal set-up to protect us from unwanted stuffs that are lingering in the cyberworld.
and then it happened.
i cannot log-in on this blog.
i cannot accessed my yahoo account. i cannot view my flickr account. i cannot open my multiply account. waaaaaa! and friendster is the only thing okey??? what the...?
and my eight-month old blogging life flashed before my eyes, patay!
i need to have a plan b. think, think, think. okey, i'll buy a laptop and ask smart bro for an internet connection in the house. sandali lang yun. what? a laptop is more than 1000? wala bang tingi? hahaha, desperation, desperation, desperation.
of course i know how much a decent laptop costs (decent is subjective), and i know it will cost me an arm and a leg, i should know, i've been drooling like crazy whenever i see one (discreetly syempre, but it's different when it comes to dslr kulang na lang yakapin ko yung camera hehe) and i wanted to have one but practicality is what hinders me from getting one (and i have other plan/priority for the little money that i am getting *wink, future, wink*).
yesterday, i talked to our japanese contractor, and he told me it's only for a few days that we will be experiencing some glitches, one week maximum as they are still doing some off-site adjustments.
nakahinga ng maluwag ang lolo hehehe.
and today, everything's back to normal, at least on this blog. obviously, naka-log in nako. the web filter is now working and sad to say, it's goodbye to my flickr and multiply accounts. i still cannot view some blogs, like toe's (under the news advocacy sabi ng filter, di ko alam ano ibig sabihin) or sngl's (forum/message boards daw). i guess, from now on, it's going to be tough accessing anything wordpress related or some stuffs. sigh.
you can't have it all sabi nga, but at least, i still get to blog on my free time in the office (defensive no hehe) and can post something relevant like this or as thought provoking such as this.
happy weekend everyone, kanpai!!!
the Optimus Prime that i know
PS: it's a TRANSFORMERS' weekend!
